Pip: So, what’s on the agenda for today?
Or do I actually get a day off?
Integra: Today’s agenda features a little-known phenomenon called peace and quiet.
Pip: Psh, pastime of those with no lives.
Integra: And a rare pleasure for those of us who actually work.
Integra: Captain Bernadette.
Integra: It’s a…
…pleasure to see…
Pip: Aw, that’s harsh.
Most of this storyline comes from an AIM conversation with the same Pip Bernadette who inspired the opening conversation here.
Integra: It’s such a lovely, peaceful morning…
Pip: Yo, boss! What’s up?
Integra: Well, it was.
Erin: I’ve gotten a couple of emails recently asking when/if/how Shine will end. Rest assured that I have plans for the ending. Shine won’t just fall off a cliff and stop. Also, let me assure you that the end isn’t coming around any time soon.
Maybe some of us WANT you to end this thing. Maybe we want you to hurry up and get to the part where we appear. When am I going to get to start my war, huh?!
Doc: And how about me? I have so many lovely experiments that are just waiting for a chance to be tested.
Schrödinger: You worked me in once already. When am I gonna get another chance? I want more panel time! Pleeeeease?
Zorin: You can’t avoid drawing my tattoos for ever.
Erin: All of you, listen up! This strip is NOT touching the main plot of Hellsing until we know who SHE is! Do I make myself clear?!
I do have a tendency to sit on things. For instance, this next storyline has been waiting six months to be drawn. But it IS finally being drawn. I get around to anything eventually.
Pip: Hey, mignonette…you can’t fall asleep in the bathroom. That would be silly.
Walter: You know where her room is?
Walter: If I leave her with you, can I trust you to take her there, with no funny business?
Pip: C’mon, don’t you trust me?
Walter: I was your age once. So, no.
Pip: Yeah, but could your girl break you in half in your sleep?
Walter: Actually, “she” could. But I see your point.
Pip: Good man…wait, what?
I distinctly heard quotation marks around that “she”! Is there something you’re not telling me?
[Limited release complete. See you next time!]
Seras is dozing off because it’s past her bedtime, not because that little display was boring.
Pip: How did you…?
You are the most hardcore old guy ever.
Seras: Here’s the ham, Walter. [YAWN]
Walter: Thank you. Now toss it — gently — into the air.
[SLICE SLICE SLICE]
The details of the bathroom took far too long to draw. I like the monogrammed towels, though.
Walter: Do you have something on which I can demonstrate?
Seras: Ooh. Sorry, no.
Walter: No problem. There’s a ham in the fridge for tomorrow’s breakfast; run and fetch it. Bring a pan, too.
Walter: Captain, you come this way.
Pip: Never thought this strip would sink to toilet humor.
Walter: So what brings you out here so early? You should be asleep.
Seras: It’s the Captain, sir.
He’s got ideas for new weapons, and some of them are all right, but he thinks the only weapons we have right now are guns. I was hoping you could, you know…
…teach him a lesson.
Walter: Oh, I think I can do that.
Today’s very special HellSING! is brought to you by Lars Thorsen, who not only wrote his own parody but went and sang it.
I always will remember,
’twas a year ago November,
I went out to hunt some Freaks
I’d been aching to for weeks.
I went and shot the enemies My Master likes the least:
Two Vampires, seven Nazis, and a Priest.
I was in no mood to trifle,
I took out my trusty Jackal
Sallied forth to stalk my prey,
what a haul I made that day!
I killed them for My Master, and I hoped she’d think it cool:
Two Vampires, seven Nazis, and a Ghoul.
Integral took it hard, she
restricted my control art,
The worst punishment I ever endured.
It turned out there was a reason:
She’d been framed for Treason,
And the Tower of London wasn’t insured.
Seras asks me how to do it,
and I say “There’s nothin’ to it,
You just stand there lookin’ cute
and when something bites, you shoot!”
And there’s ten vanquished foes in the Pit’o’Hell – REAL HOT:
Two Vampires, seven Nazis, and an Ancient Demon God
