Sorry this is a bit late.

Hah, you'd think someone would know better than to hit random fire buttons on a super-hero's vehicle! Especially when it's sitting right next to the missile button!

One of the nice subtle touches that I like about this - Dan's adding new sugar cubes to his container, after Rorschach just recently plundered a bunch of it.

You keep meaning to throw that picture away. Suuuuure you do, Dan. At least Laurie's not buying it...

This chapter is so sweet in a way. Laurie and Dan taking all their bumbling little missteps, and finally coming together. Even if it's the little kink in their mental makeup (or at least Dan's) that has them getting together at the end. Well, I guess normal people don't get dressed up in tights and fight crime, even if Dan and Laurie are about as normal in the scene as you're going to get.

And the interplay with the TV is of course great.

I like how, given half a valid excuse, Dan and Laurie are quick to get back into the superhero gig, despite the specific law against it, and despite the fact that Laurie always objects that it was her mother all along that wanted her to do it. I mean, while she's not the driving force behind the night's escapades, she's not exactly dragging her feet, y'know?

Also love the ending of the chapter, and Laurie's reaction. Heh. Very loyal of Dan, though.


The remaining schedule

And the flamethrower at the end? What's next, a rocket taking off?

No, the rocket was the button next to the flamethrower.

Over the top, but cracked me up in its corniness.

3) I COULD NOT TAKE the ENDLESS double-entendres/visual puns during the make-out scenes. ZOMG I do not need the voiceover for Veidt's athletic performance as commentary on Dreiberg's sexual performance!

The TV scenes did two things for me. One was contrast: Veidt was confident, smooth, in control -- everything that Dreiberg isn't. The other was the passage of time. They were trying for a lot of hours there.

5) The whole "Dan goes from nerdboy to hottie by taking off his glasses" bit. On the one hand, it amuses me to see that trope pulled on a male character

Well, that's how it always worked for Clark Kent. It's not *just* librarians.


Poor Laurie. No pillow talk should ever include Rorschach.

Hah! Yes.

Yup, I was rooting for them. Even through the groan-inducing "oh, no, I was just adjusting my hair" panel.


Which "Manhattan Transfer" do you think they were referencing? This one, or the jazz group? (Or the others?)

While I'm poking through various other references, here's one on the gymnastics: "Most elements from 1950s and 60s bars routines, such as the Hecht dismount and the Radolcha somersault, are now completely obsolete". Just like the super-heroes.
