Starbolts #535: Into the Blue Again

Hail!

    Well, it looks like Norad is in a pickle! Our android friend and Syntax have to deal with dying nanobots with nothing to lose. They used to be passive. What made them go aggro all of a sudden? We’ll find out soon, I promise. It looks like the start of a new storyline featuring Norad and we will definitely delve into the origin of Syntax. I think you will find her to be a literal ghost in the machine!

    After Aquita’s harrowing ordeal, it looks like it affected her more than she realized. A swim wasn’t going to be enough to shake off the horror of seeing two black auras. She needed something more. She needed a reset to her brain. Thankfully, her husband was there and I don’t think it takes a lot to figure out what they’re doing by the pool.

    Aquita was swimming naked as she is comfortable with nudity. As Aquans swim a lot, they tend to not have the same view of nudity as some humans do. Sure they swim with clothes on. But, sometimes they like to swim naked as well. Also, if an Aquan woman were to show themselves as naked before a potential mate, that means they are ready to take a mate for life.

    In this case, Aquita wanted to swim naked as it was refreshing to her. Mateo showing up is an added bonus. After this is over, I wouldn’t say she was cured. But, she is on the mend. It’s going to take time and seeing a pink or blue aura will definitely help speed things along. Black auras tend to have a negative impact on Aquan psyches. It remains to be seen how this will effect Robkas and Kahlia going forward. The two are stuck with each other. But, I don’t think they’ll be happy with each other.

    At least we know Aquita will be fine. She has her husband, son, family and friends to help her. That’s all we can hope for.

See ya next time for more on Norad and Syntax!

Starbolts #534: Losing Your Tail

Hail!

    I should probably explain what Aquita said. Basically, Robkas has ruined his life. Aquans take sex very seriously as they are a telepathic race. They bond with their mates for life and thus have to be very selective in choosing their life partner. They do not consummate their union unless they are ABSOLUTELY sure. And it’s usually the woman who initiates the mating ritual. If their love isn’t pure, their bond is meaningless and the two become hollow. Robkas also mated with Kahlia in an attempt to make Aquita jealous. This backfired horribly and now he has to live with his decision. As far as Kahlia goes, she has no real feelings for him. They can’t read each other and if they can’t read each other, there is no bond. That is a hard concept for an Aquan to deal with as they are a race of telepaths.

    This isn’t to say personality and chemistry don’t also play a role. They do. This scenario is more about being able to connect telepathically to one another. An Aquan can obviously connect to another Aquan or a non Aquan as we’ve seen with Mateo and Jenna in the past. However, problems can arise if they can’t adequately sense the other person. In this regard, Robkas and Kahlia are probably doomed as their telepathic needs can never be met.

    I hope that clears things up. Robkas is now stuck with Kahlia, a woman who has also mated with various Aquans for the wrong reasons. In a way, this makes them a perfect pair. Now, there is no stigma attached to it because it was their choice. They just can no longer read each other like I said. They have to live with their choices and she was never able to read him anyway.

    I think this lesson will affect Marcus the most because he has been in a relationship for about a year. When he gets back to Earth, he’s really going to up the romance with Crystal. He is the youngest of the original Starbolts and so he still has a lot to learn about love.

    We also learned a bit about Aquan development this week. Baby Aquans start off sort of like tadpoles. I didn’t have space in the sprite to put in a tail. But, baby Criam definitely had one. And his hands and feet were like dolphin flippers. The baby has a lot of developing to do. I’m sure he’ll swim circles around his older cousin some day!  

    I also liked writing that scene with Aquita and her mother. We seem to be doing many scenes with the Starbolts and their parents lately. Huh. I should probably write one with Marcus and his parents. That’d be cool. Perhaps I will since Aquita’s words hit home for him. He loves Crystal and she loves him. But, now he has firsthand knowledge about auras and what all that really means. He’s gonna be a changed man. Probably for the better!

Time will tell!

See ya next time!

Starbolts #533: The New Prince

Hail!

    The new prince is finally here and his name is Criam J’arrsti. Longtime readers will remember that Criam was the name of Aquita, Shrall and M’anta’s grandfather. The elder Criam was the one who liberated Aquarius from the Mosqukatara. You can read about his heroic sacrifice all those years ago here. Now he carries on the name for a new generation. Will he be king? It’s hard to say. He WILL be meeting his cousin, Sirak, next week though!

    Speaking of next week. Expect Aquita to FINALLY confront Robkas over his latest ramblings. It’s a safe bet she’s just going to give him the cold shoulder as he usually does. And of course Kahlia is no prize herself. Seriously. She hit on Marcus on live television. Oh and to make it worse Crystal probably saw it. She knows Marcus would NEVER stray. However, she does have just cause to beat up that lady. Kahlia clearly has issues and she and Robkas were made for each other!

    I’m also planning on doing a long awaited scene with Aquita and her mother. I really want to make one before they head back to Earth. Stay tuned for that and of course future comics!

See ya next week!

Damn Write: Better write something!

It has been a little while since you’ve seen anything from me so guess I better write something and post it.

Frankly, I have been fighting depression again, Between problems with my hip, sickness from not eating enough, and problems with my family have left me depressed for a while. Like thoughts of suicide levels of stress. It took a lot out of me to even get going. I’m feeling a little bit better (mostly I have eaten some food helped) so don’t worry about my mental state right now. I wonder if any of you even care really.

One cause for my issues is that this is the first time in DAYS I’ve had any time to myself. Due to COVID issues, other people are home ALL the time. I’ve wasted my breath with trying to deal with them and I have had just about enough. I don’t talk to them AT ALL right now and just take my moments to myself in my room. Just let them do their thing and just stay away from it. They’ve driven me crazy enough as it is without adding more stress on top of everything.

Adding to my issues is I am still waiting for my tax return to come back and I hear there is a second stimulus that was supposed to arrive sometime. Still waiting for my money but as usual, I’m left to sit here and wait/ My job paid me at least. So thankfully I have some money coming in. Not a lot, but still something.

So things kind of suck right now but they could be worse. I’m not sick with anything (as far as I know) ab=nd none of my family or friend have passed away or gotten deathly ill so things could be worse.

So for now it will be best to just wait things out and hope the future is much better to me than it is now.

Starbolts #532: When Similarities Attract

Hail!

    Only a complete and utter douche like Robkas would have a political announcement at the same time a royal birth is taking place. But, it gets worse. They’re in the same building. I want it known that the Starbolts are right to chastise Robkas due to his crimes. He has been a constant thorn in their sides since his return ages ago. The man has some serious issues and the Starbolts don’t tolerate him. Why should they? He kidnapped Aquita, brainwashed her, took part in several attempts to take over either Earth or Aquarius and countless other crimes.

    Then there’s his girlfriend. It looks like Kahlia Motres is cut from the same cloth. M’anta asked Firaxil to do a quick check on her file before he arrived at the beach. It didn’t take long as he used his Centurion helmet. The helmet includes an uplink to any criminal database depending on what world the Centurion is on and Kahlia appears on the list. She did some time. But, is she really reformed?

Who knows? I wonder if Robkas and her even have a future. They do seem to deserve each other.

Either way, next comic sees the birth of the new prince! Stay tuned!

Starbolts #531: Unexpected Arrivals

Hail!

    This week’s comic brings us two unexpected arrivals for the Starbolts. First off we have Angela and Kevin having a long awaited and much needed reunion. Things were tense for a while since she went to Demonsk without his input. That put a little strain on their relationship. Thankfully, they worked things out and are getting back on track. As for that little cave they went to, well….it’s an underwater cave. I think they’ll have privacy there. Much needed privacy. The cave was discovered by Aquita and she and Mateo have made it into a love nest. How did she find out about it? Good question. I doubt the princess would have told her.

    It looks like Robkas is back in town with a new girlfriend. Her name is Kahlia. We’ll be hearing more about her in the next few comics. What is Robkas’s endgame here? He wants to be senator, right? Is he using her to get the job? OR is she using him? It’s hard to say. Basically, Kahlia is an Aquan version of Crystal with zero inhibitions. He should be careful. Then again, perhaps he’s also in on it.

    I really liked how that sunrise panel came out. It took a few tries. But, I think it works. See ya next time for more of what Robkas is up to now that he’s back. What does this mean for our heroes? Stay tuned!
