When I first started TLT, I didn't want to kick it off with a drawn-out storyline about how Cassie first built the time machine. I wanted to jump right in with an assortment of gags from different times, and I would save the invention details for a flashback-style storyline later on.
Well, that time has come. These next several strips will be basically the Book of Genesis for this comic.
TRANSCRIPTION COURTESY OF JOSEPH HOUK - (PW)
"So how long have you had that time machine?" (CW)
"Let's see... May of 2005. Almost seven years now." (PW,
continuing their "pillow talk") "That thing must've taken a
long time to build, not to mention getting all the bugs out
of the system!" (CW) "Well, I did have some help from
Matt. He's the electronics expert." (PW) "As for Bethany...
She's in the know because she's your best friend and
roommate, right?" (CW, counting off) "You got it! There's
also Agent Scott, of course... A small group of friends in
Florida [the gang from Rule of Three]... I don't know if
Nicki would count, she's a robot... There's Kat, but she's
been in a coma for a while, poor girl [Tiki Coladas]... Also
Maggie, who's actually from the 14th century... and Joan,
who would've been burnt at the stake in 1431 had we not
snuck her out of that era." (PW, realizing who she's talking
about) "Wait... You mean to tell me..." (CW) "Yep.
Remember when you fantasized about Joan of Arc at the
Renfest, how you said you would 'hit that'? You actually
said that to Joan of Arc herself, in the flesh." (PW, rolling
over) "I feel so... unclean now." (CW, crawling over and
reaching under the covers) "If it'll make you feel better, I'll
pretend I'm Joan! So.. Can I play with your sword?"
