This is Cosmic Dash, Volume 2, Episode 4, Page 15. Villanous music intensifies on this page if we had a running score. We do have the Cosmic Dash theme, but we totally need a Drakar theme as well. This continues the previous remastered page of “The Cube” and puts everything in line with the text of the recent volume.
I had to make no real tweaks to this page beyond some line rewrites and moving some dialogue around. There was nothing major, though.
In the proper numbering order based on the current numbering system of the comic, this would be CD.2.1.18. However, I have not adjusted the title or how it appears in the archive to preserve permalinks and not throw off crawlers. I have included the archived content and original page below the transcript.
Reader Question: What’s popular music like for the various cultures?
This question comes from Ghostforge from the Discord chat. I have some archived material about a music festival in-universe I have yet to post, but for now, I’ll focus on one genre and culture. So, the Grey have a form of music that is an audio version of mathematical equations known as Math Rock. For most species, these can simultaneously sound droning and chaotic in equal measure, but for the Grey, the more variation in one of these math rock tunes, the better, as the equation is sufficiently complicated.
It is every bit as nerdy as it sounds.
Okay, one more: for the Cyclopasian traditionalists, their music involves throaty, mournful vocals and is akin to dirges. Imagine a combination of Mongolian throat singing and musical wailing.
Cosmic Dash, Volume 2, Episode 4, Page 15 Transcript
The following is a transcript of Cosmic Dash, Volume 2, Episode 4, Page 15.
Darkar stands at a podium as he delivers a speech. Former criminals sit behind him in front of the DraCo company logo.
Caption: Reformation Charity Dinner
Drakar: “Each of these individuals has undergone the reformation program. They have thrived in job placement.”
Drakar glances down at his speech, but it has been covered over by a message from Wulg Wootari.
Drakar: “They will not be the last to accomplish these things, either.”
Darkar wraps up his address.
Drakar: “Tonight we honor them – Indeed, we all deserve second chances.”
Drakar is walking along an elevated balcony. Mayden is approaching from the stairway.
Caption: Moments Later
Drakar: “I told you that I did not want to be informed- Fine, kill him. I do not care what you do with him.”
Drakar checks behind him, seeing Mayden following him.
Drakar wraps up his call.
Drakar: “Is that all? Do not call me again.”
Drakar and Mayden walk along the upper balcony of the large room.
Drakar: “Speak your mind, Mayden.
Mayden: “Sir, why contract the pirates again?”
Drakar: “Chaos on the field. Obfuscation is the real agent.”
Mayden: “A distraction.”
Mayden: “I still do not understand why I am not out there, taking care of this on your behalf.”
Drakar and Mayden enter an elevator. He looks down at her, and she looks up at him.
Drakar: “I still need you here to protect me.”
The elevator door shuts.
Drakar (OS): “I couldn’t risk losing you.”
If you want to spread the word about the comic, a vote on Top Webcomics really helps!
To all my American readers, I sincerely hope you had a great 4th of July yesterday with your families!
We’re visiting in with Drakar again this week, and we hear a bit about his criminal rehabilitation program his company established to help curb crime in the galaxy. He also seems to be awfully close to his assistant, Ms. Mayden. Methinks Drakar has a double-life of sorts?
Anyway, I am going to try to get another donation wallpaper together sometime this month. If you are a fan of Animal Crossing I suspect you’ll get a kick out of it.
This week make sure you give Poppy O’Possum a try.
