actually no. Philomina is not alive. except in Tia's mind. like all small children she treats her favorite toy like it's alive. Because Tia does this, AND Tia has access to magic. instead of simply imagining the reaction Philomina would have, philomina acts out physically those reactions.
Philomina emoting is a direct product of Tia's imagination.
OMG it's finally done and I LOVE it. Did that grl ask for a serial number? I would have asked for the brand and I would totally buy a Ro-Pet that looks like princess. Can't wait for the next one. Until then I shall sit in front of my compute and will not get up until Christmas arrives.
I just figured out that "Ro-Pet" must stand for Robot Pet. (Took me long enough, huh?)
All this time I'd been thinking, based on people's reactions, that genetically engineered pets must be fairly common. But no! It's robot pets that are common, and they're all mistaking Princess for one.
Err... Did that girl mean to ask for a "serial number"? Wouldn't the model number (or name, or brand?) make more sense?
I finally had the time to take a look at your profile with my whole attention and read the comic page by page whole. I must say, I'm surprised at how great it is! the story you're telling is great itself, as I can just sink in it for hours (If I were not a fast reader ) What I'm trying to say is... this is awesome! Awesome to the limit, and I really can't wait to see woona, and what has happened to all the hu-manes. Especially since I know it's not going to be a cliche post-apo scenario! All hail originality!
