You can always count on Lacie!
…to be a bit of a dick.
Honesty is the best policy?
Fun fact, last October I made this one: http://www.crazysunshine.com/2011/10/trust/ – Perhaps October is the month to come clean!
is this going to be like a lacie and pepperment thing every october? cause i’m okay with that. just more reason to like october updates.
No, not at all. This is just insane coincidence.
I will try to do a Halloween special every October for sure though.
The orange eyes in that last panel worry me about. I sorta feel like there’s some demonic leftovers seeping through in that look of hers.
“You can trust me…to do something later”.
What a creeper. XP
Transparent windows YESSSSS.
Y-yeah well if you like those windows so much why don’t you go marry them?!
I think that’s illegal in most countries. I’ve heard of countries where you’re allowed – or sometimes forced – to marry animals… but things?
Japanese guy married his PC a few years ago!
Are you talking about the guy that married his Nintendo DS simulated girlfriend in Love Plus?
Check out Lacie’s body language: “You’re an idiot!” XD
Man those clear windows…I can’t get over how well the background fits right in with them.
I think the blue stands out too much this time personally.
Looks weird as shit on an RSS feed.
I too am a fan of that transparency effect.
Pepper seems to be a little off now, I mean she believed Lacie? What’s next, taking dating advice from Shelbie?
Despite being a genius she IS 9 years old. If someone implies something that is easily believable, she will trust it. Aside from the stuffing chickens in air vents and puncturing bike tires, Peppermint considers Lacie a friend after all.
Really? Even after shit like blowing up the moon and messing with Candy? I never understood how Peppermint could tolerate Lacie for that long…or how Lacie didn’t get permanently removed from the house.
Would life really be interesting if there were only nice people?
C’mon, the world needs some harassment and violence once in a while!
Keeps things spicy!
D’AWWWWWWWWWW, I didn’t know you cared!
I wish I could upvote this. Exactly. It’s a comedy, anything goes. A lot of readers sometimes take the comic way too seriously!
Needless to say it will be VERY interesting when Jkun gets around to Lacie/Pepper’s back story.
Don’t forget Lacie plays games with Peppermint like “Name that thing”, “Sacking in a tower a bunch cameo running gag objects on Shelbie while she soundly asleep”, and video games on the Dreamcast 2.
In other words its a Unbreakable bond between the some what jerkish Middle Child sibling and smart as hell but still learning Youngest sibling.
I knew it was a setup. That smile look false in Lacie’s face.
Her only smile is a troll smile.
Glad you managed to read it! I wanted her to have “that” face, where her eyes are sparkling and her smile is plastic, you just know she’s forcing it.
i wonder what would happen if she used that face and meant it as it looks. you know acually being innocent.
The very fabric of this comic would be rent asunder. In other words, BROKEN.
I wonder that too…!
That’s kinda creepy..
Gee! Its like asking “Yo Lacie! Where you the one who burned all of my clothing and left me a bunny suit so that everyone in the street pointed and laughted at me?”
“Good, I was afraid it was the work of somebody else…”
You can always trust Lacie, unless she is lying.
But you can trust that she’s lying!
got to say i think lacie’s face in the second panel is my favorite. am i the only one that thinks when lacie says “trust me” it should be translated as “you can trust that it was me?”
I don’t think I’ve ever seen Lacie with an expression like she has in the second panel before.
I don’t think she has ever been proud of being a dick before and actually shown it!
(Oh damn, Lacie serious.)
Well, obviously we have a BRUTALLY HONEST TROLL in peppermint house. She’s climbin’ in your windows, she’s snatchin’ your invention up, tryin’ to move ‘em. So y’all need to hide your stuff animals, hide your science equipment, and hide your robots cause they’re Trolling’ everybody out here.
(Oh hey look the transparent windows are back.)
Lol, her innocent face in the second panel is so unsettling… And yes, Lacie is such a trustworthy character!:3
Some say honesty is key, Lacie tends to bend the truth in more than one way.
Wait.. if she can’t be trusted, what about that cooked evil bird she fed Peppy?
GASP! What if it was designed to lower her I.Q. by 1 point a day?!
..nah, I think I’m just letting my imagination run wild yet again.
In that comment thread there were so many replies about the punchline. Half the readers thought the joke was Lacie poisoning Peppermint, half thought it was the fact Lacie was hungry an the bird was fine. Looks like sometimes you just can’t tell where her honesty lies! (OH HO GET THAT PUN?)
You should rename yourself Jpun.
Never in my life have I heard a pun right on the mark.
You never cease to amaze me Jkun.
It makes me wonder though, how many puns do you have up your sleeve?
I really enjoy the variety expressions of Lacie face in this Comic. Especially that Cold Hard Brutally Serious Deadpan Honest face she makes in the last panel.
This Lacie face SCARES me. The first one, not the second one.
Yes, me too.
In before me four.
Gaslighting, i beleive it’s called
Lacie might move your shit around, she might take your shit, she might blow up your shit, she might eat your shit, but…..
…..I forgot where I was going with this >.>
But she tries not to shit.
Also hey, been a while!
Indeed! Been dealing with work and school. Nursing school is a bear -.-
Also finding new comics to read, like the one I’m currently linking to in me name
I’ve noticed that there aren’t any DaifuMo Avatars on the extras page, why?
I’ve not gotten around to making any. There aren’t enough good expressions in the comic yet in my opinion. Give it time!
You can trust me, to mess with your stuff.
The best lie is mostly truth, especially if you leave out a key piece of information that changes the meaning entirely without actually making it a lie.
In panel two, that word was simply. “No”.
At least she’s honest when she DOES things.
Lacie in the second panel, Jesus, that’s the most terrifying she’s ever been…
It’s A plain case of Duality und de politics Of Non-beink as related to Platonic Reality !
Me, I’m dishonest, and dishonest people you can always trust to be dishonest, honestly. It’s the honest one’s you need to look out for, because you never know when they’re gonna do something stupid
so true. a Sparrow has never spoken truer words.
Pepper need’s security cameras.
aw poor peppermint. lol got to love lacie.
At least she’s honest about her horrible trickery.
“You can trust me to screw with your brain, Peppers!”
James, this was bugging me for sometime now. Do you watch the show One Piece?
I have watched a LOT of OP, but because streaming/downloading anime is now illegal in Japan I stick to the weekly manga. Before you ask, yes, I love it.
I love One Piece. It’s my favorite anime/manga in existence.
That’s illegal there now? Here IN AMERICA! it’s not. I’m not sure if it’s even illegal to save/download them IN AMERICA!
(I’ve been watching too much YGO:TAS)
Yeah, as of October this year, downloading anything you cannot see on free TV is illegal. A lot of anime is not free to watch in Japan, despite what everyone thinks. DVDs and Blurays are way too expensive and come with no subtitles, naturally. So I am kind of at a loss for a lot of anime.
Actually, since One Piece is licensed in America, it IS illegal to download even Japanese episodes or manga
That face in the last panel reminds me that Lacy IS ACTUALLY a DEVIL! Or your equivalent anyway.
Trust, but verify, Pepper; especially when it concerns exiled demons. She is a nine year old girl after all. Intelligent, but still oh, so naive when it comes to dealing with creatures from Heck, bless her little heart.
Random thought: If a person lies though their teeth then where the hell does truth comes out of?
Seems obvious enough to me
I’m a relatively new reader of this strip (love it so far) so I don’t know the characters very well. That being said I got the impression that Lacie confessed because she lost confidence that she could continue to fool Peppermint.
Always nice to see a new reader give an outsider’s input. Thanks very much!
Also that’s a good way to put it! Infact, she is proud of her little antics and attempts at trolling, hence why she fessed up.
Thanks again, please keep reading!
…Well how the hell am I supposed to answer that?
Say, what was Lacie drinking in the first panel? owo
My guess is a Peppermint smoothie!
..I think I completely miss the mark..
It’s obviously a non-specific fountain beverage with no relation to Coca-Cola whatsoever.
Nah, it’s Coke.
Same as this. http://www.crazysunshine.com/2012/02/shelbie-knievel/
I see. I was wondering, because she really seems to like it. XD
I know you might get asked this a lot J-kun,but how did the 4 of them meet and end up living together?
Through a series of unfortunate events!
Would there happen to be sugar bowls involved?
My head is tilted with a “?” mark over it.
And that kids is why you should set up a pair of Scientifically Advance Laser Guided Gun Turrets fill with Fuckton of Bullets and a Ominously Humorous High Pitch Voice Modulation Device, right in front of your door way. To Fucking OBLITERATE any if all (including you) “Guest” that came though that door way.
…But I’m not allowed to play with the tools anymore…
Do all of your comments include the word “fuckton”?
trust truly is an issue. you can’t trust anything on the page. the best colors i’ve come across in a long time. :^D
