Holy! Clara is hella brave :D
Anyone else would be paralyzed and with a stick in their stomach!

Yeah. Unfortunate but Jack messed up. The one short moment was enough for Irwin to counter attack after all.
Since Clara acted, it means she at least cares this much even after seeing Irwin transformed. No reason why she should not but... I dunno. It is going to get awkward in my opinion.
Foolish move since you preferred target is weak and unarmed and you can finish her off at any time after the bodyguard is dealt with.

Tbh, I have no idea how far this story is but if people start dropping around this time, I will not be surprised. :/

You think people would start dropping out because a fan favorite character is getting thrashed?

I think that challenges like this make for more interesting storytelling.

This story is a little past the halfway point, probably... 6/7 chapters to go. We're definitely in Act 2 territory here. So some deaths happening would make sense, structurally.

But! Jack made the decision to go after Clara because in his experience humans can't really take as many stabs as he delivered and keep fighting after. It was a bit of a miscalculation on his part, heh.

Oh no. I meant people in the story dying. Not sure how far the comic is but it will not surprise me if the the cast starts to drop in numbers. I do not expect many of them at the end.
Sorry :>

Well, there's a fine howdy do! Jack has already demonstrated his willingness to pursue a goal unto death but it looks like Jaunt isn't going to be around to pick up the pieces this time. Thigwin has dealt Jack a very palpable hit but who knows what he has left after that. What a cliffhanger!

Nobody thought Thiggwin would be there. Who knew he was going to be here, right at this moment? I'd say considering the added challenge that Jack did a pretty admirable job. :)

Irwin's the (undead?) host of an extradimensional bio-superweapon, and Jack's handily dealt with by normal-dimensional human non-superweapons. Props to Jack for landing a few good blows way above his weight class, but the only thing keeping him alive even this long was probably Irwin's desire not to have our #1 Heroine caught in the metaphorical blast radius.

At this point, even if Jack is still alive, the only thing that's going to keep him that way is if Irwin decides that finishing him off is less important than disappearing/tending to Clara.



... That should be an awkward conversation. "Yeah, so you know that time I got drunk and accidentally came home with a tattoo? Well..."

It has been stated that Thigg functions as large parts of Irwin's anatomy. Do they still have seperate circulation or does Irwin have green ichor flowing in his veins?

A valid question! Probably depends on which veins Jack hits, honestly. I think if Irwin's blood changed it would alter the color of his skin at the very least, right?

You would expect a color shift but I don't know of a lot of real world precedent.
Hmmm, little green veins in the eyeball could be the giveaway that you don't notice until you are way too close and it is way too late.

Fur sure it would - unless you're black. And Irwin is a pale redhead.

From my understanding, that is not the way Thigg handles things, I rather think that Thigg functions for Irwin as The Heart That Has A Life On It's Own. And maybe a few other organs... But hearts would be easiest, they are quite mechanical engines that just need to persist. Most other organs do more difficult (chemical) jobs, if, say, Thigg needs to replace a lung, it would need access to Irwin's bloodstream, I mean, much more directly than just pumping the blood

No THAT's Chimerism ... though there's likely less and less of Erwin functioning as time goes on.

Hm, no sound from Clara when she stepped on the glass shards?

(And only now I realized that Clara threw a globe at Jack's head. The distraction may have saved Irwin's life.)

Interesting. Thiggwin can not just extend an appendage, but can also shoot (presumably its tip) like a projectile.
