Vette really wishes she had her own speeder right now.

In regards to last week's comic, thanks for pointing out all the typos. (No really, I'm not being sarcastic.) Every time I start to think I'm getting good at this proof reading thing I need to remember I'm terrible at it and I should proof read it once again.

Also, may I say, even though I don't reply to every comment I do read them all. I just want to thank you guys for continuing to be amusing. :)

...and I'm gonna go with a Lhosian Thunderbolt?

Looks like Mendy is making good on his promise to be less subtle!

Ahhh Mendy. Of course you'd decide you need a ramp.

Who doesn't need a ramp?

The Lhosan Thunderbolt is one of my alts favorite speeders. I -wish- it could get the 'air time' that Mendy just got [well .. get it successfully, without wiping out upon landing]. ^_^

And poor Vette. She is well on her way to getting a whole handful of phobias.

Yeah, she's going to need some serious therapy after Mendy. Poor kid.

As opposed to Salih, who will just develop one: Mendiphobia. Fear of going anywhere without expecting Mendy to be there. Even if you go somewhere and he isn't there, you spend the entire time checking behind you and around corners expecting him to show up. Actually, that's probably a completely rational fear.

At this point Salih half expects to board her ship only to find Mendiloquence dancing shirtless atop the holo console.

You're downplaying the skill this takes.

Mendiloquence

I really think I deserve more credit for this. To be able to slip into your hangar bay, sneak onto your ship, wait for you to engage in a cutscene, then be dancing shirtless on a console when the cutscene ends. These things take real skill. And I wish you had an appropriate amount of appreciation for the work I do.

Well . . .

Mendiloquence

I mean, you are blind, so I guess it probably isn't actually THAT hard, but still. My point stands.

It's almost as if she doesn't even appreciate it!

Don't mean to be a grammar nazi but in the last panel I'm almost positive that there needs to be to r's in Balmorran

Don't worry, if you were one of those you'd have used "two" :P
But I'm pretty sure you're right.

That's spelling, not grammar.

Also, "need", not "needs".

Sorry. Couldn't resist.

I'm no grammar expert but I'm pretty sure that it is needs not need. I generally go on what sounds right.

I prefer the term grammar nerd to grammar nazi (less implied genocide)

@ VIRYNNA
You are quite right it has been fixed. Thanks for pointing that out.

@ ED
Anyone who is a spelling/grammar nerd is going to be massively disappointed with my mastery of the English language.

I was once given this advice for proofreading:
read from right to left and bottom to top.
It generally work for me, but I always notice all the typos the moment after I hit "send" or "Post the comment" :)

You did that on purpose, didn't you?

That should be "works for me" rather than "work for me".

Best Proofreading advice I ever got was "Let someone else do it, your brain knows what it should say and will correct the mistakes for you as you read. The mistakes are still there, you just don't register them."

I don't ever have to worry about that sort of thing, because I never make misteaks.

I actually used to have someone else proof read my comic for the first two years. Unfortunately, my work hours changed and it's no longer feasible to have him proof read the comic before I post it any more.

That said, those first few years of proof reading were INVALUABLE. You guys have NO idea how much my spelling and grammar have improved as a result. This is why I do not mind you guys pointing out errors. I'm only going to continue to improve if I know what I'm doing wrong.

Ironic nitpicking is the best kind! :D

I believe "proofreading" in this context is one word rather than two.
