Here we see Thomas, reinforcing the misconception of the perfect schemer, of plans within plans. He is enough of a schemer to allow attribution of credit for things way beyond his control (though he certainly wouldn’t openly claim it), leaving people guessing what he *can’t* do.

Illegitimi Non Carborundum was the motto of the submarine I served on.

“Illegitimi Non Carborundum”.

Is that faux-Latin for: “Don’t let the bastards grind you down”?

I played a White Wolf / Vampire game where our motto was
“Non gratis anus rodentum”

Gangrel oddly enough :)

I really like this interaction, and how this scene ended. It says a lot about their friendship without needing to use any words to directly state anything. Feels very true to life in a way I don’t think I’d ever seen in any form of media before, or at least not as well-executed as this. The last two panels in particular make Nina and Thomas seem so real.

This is the kind of stuff I come here for, Jackie. You have this knack to create scenes so filled with humanity, it’s a real joy to watch your world unfold in these pages. Thanks for always being here with a new bit of that world for us to inhabit for a little while.
