135 – Intermission

Well that’s unnerving.

Special thanks to Reagan for recording for this!

BGM: Corner Cube, by Christian Anderson

UPDATE 6/3/2020: I’m gonna delay the next update by 1 week. It doesn’t feel appropriate to post at the moment and I’m struggling to work on it. See you all on the 14th!

    Pivot ZERO boot sequence initiated.

    I do feel like Hivemind’s arc can’t go any deeper than “oh-look-my-past-is-related-to-yours-i-know-everything-about-you” and “I-am-so-smart-watch-me-take-over-the-world”. He feels pretty black and white to me in terms of writing.

    Maybe at one point, we can be introduced to Hivemind at a deeper level. Right now, the basic groundwork for his introduction in this chapter shows how he operates and how his personality works in relation to Pivot. It’s a decent introduction, don’t get me wrong. The prevailing question is how will he make the stakes higher other than threatening Pivot’s friends?

    I could be wrong, though. I just feel like the build-up towards his introduction wasn’t enough.
    Was he responsible for the robot attack back at the mall?
    What about the Kaiju attack?
    The only connection I made that he was being introduced was the dream sequence. And then, immediately, casino scene happens and he’s there.

    I feel like that the protagonist has to put a lot of effort, along with her friends, in order to reveal Hivemind and not hand his identity on a silver platter.

    Yeah this was definitely coming. He’s not so clumsy as to get caught with only one body. And he is the kind of person who wants to see his opponent’s deck without showing his own. He knows Pivot still exhibits human behavior and will play her emotions like a damn fiddle, especially since he has a head-start on who her close contacts are.

    This is why you wear a mask if your employers will allow it during vigilante-style work in any story or even in reality. They may be working in accordance with the law, but the people you’re going after definitely don’t. And the smart ones know that the best place to hit you is at home. I fear poor Pivot may be about to discover exactly what that’s like.

    I kinda want a pv02 video game now…or an anime…

    1. JacqTWriter says:

      Sorry no edit function: I meant like the voiceover was something out of a video game or an anime, and i imagine if one existed it would be absolutely amazing… xD

      1. Daybreaker7 says:

        If possible, I’d want Pivot to be in an indie fighting game, like a guest star in a future Skullgirls game or something. 🙂

          She’d be awesome in Skull girls!

    She may have some daddy issues.

  9. Chaos says:

    Well then. That certainly does not bode well. Seems to be a “win the battle but lose the war” situation developing here.

    Also, that voice acting in the recording – very nicely done!

  10. Bill cipher says:

    Wait she heard all of that or …, Anyway so now pivot will go deep undercover to find out her past and while stopping hiveminds plans ( who closely acts like hordack from she- ra ) but that was the most creepy and depressing big punch I’ve seen

  11. Careblood says:

    That VO was so on point, mate. Such a fitting voice for HM. That arrogant yet calm tone suits this shady, intriguing MoFu perfectly imo. But that Audio kinda missed that certain ‘crunch’ in the end. I somewhat wanted to hear the sound of him being smashed into oblivion. XD

    1. Daybreaker7 says:

      First we had Meredith Sims as Pivot, and now we have this awesome voice for H.I.V.E.M.I.N.D! I LOVE IT!

  12. MegaBoltX says:

    So this was really…

    1. Daybreaker7 says:

      He certainly fits that villain tier.

  13. Anonymous says:

    Now wait… Hold up, is he like some kind of network? I know he called himself Dr hivemind… But she crushed his body… Shouldn’t that be it 0__0???? Granted there were two pivots… So… Idk my brain hurts

      He pulled an ultron.

      Backup bodies.

    Im Hoping that we can get this animated with the audio.But truly unnerving.

  16. Daybreaker7 says:

  17. Daybreaker7 says:

    …Keep your friends safe Pivot. 🙁

  25. MegaBoltX says:

    I’m sorry, what???

  26. Judeo says:

    I feel like rewriting the whole scene here. Here it is as it plays out in my little ol’ brain.

    *Time seemingly still*
    *Pivot looks to be shouting*
    *Socket looks shocked*
    *Gyro on his follow-through after attacking*

    “I don’t believe it. MY AMP!?”
    “Inara, you sly dog!”
    “Her genius and my own brilliance always had the potential to change science as we know it.”
    “And there it is, unfolding before me! Haha!”
    “Working even better than any model could have predicted!”
    “…It’s a shame it’s wasted on YOU.

    “I suppose you may enjoy this small victory…”
    “Hehe, is it even a victory?”
    “Contacts escaped. All evidence destroyed by you.”
    “All you did was delay the inevitable.”
    “You can’t stop PROGRESS.”

    “This is my only warning to you, Pivot.”
    “Walk away from this while you can.”

    “Unless you want to see your friends bleed for me.”

    *za warudo ends*

      I love to see your work Judeo. 🙂

  27. robnot says:

    no … he is a puppet master.. no wonder he feels no pain,, he is not there.. he just transfers to the next body…
    or a matrix , till the next is done..

  28. Arthuritto says:

    Some good characters require good amount of time to “be themself”

  29. Knightshade86 says:

    Damn it please dont tell me socket has gotten infected

  30. Chungnos says:

    Now you know he dead

    1. Gojira_Tanaka says:

      Nope, by the sounds of it… he will pull an Ultron. Which means he has another body ready somewhere.

      You thought it was hive mind,
      but it was I DIO!!!

  32. Stone says:

    Unnerving? That’s an understatement if I ever saw one!

    This is downright ominous! And the addition of the voiceover to the comic itself is just… it… sent chills down my spine. I never expected the things to develop this way. Of course, Hivemind would not give up just after getting punched like that but… it seems there is… WAY more to this than meets the eye.

    Ah, amazing. I’m left *simply* amazed after this one. And… od dear… poor PV.
