    Some one is over playing their hand.this smells of trouble to me

  2. xzeddx

    Rules eh? I feel like there is a lot to be said…

  3. Nollid221

    On a scale of one to dead…how screwed is she?

  4. LavaBat

    I hope that bitch gets killed. Slowly.

  5. Josh.C

    She’s playing her hand rather heavily there.

    Man, Murphy’s sense of timing is rather impeccable. Especially when it comes to her own pelt.

    @Nollid221: I’d say three, her position gives her a bit of damage control. But she keeps playing like this, someone might start to call her out on everything.

  6. LavaBat

    @Josh.C: If she keeps doing thing like this, she might end up as a player. Now that would be fitting! >:3

  7. e_voyager

    Maybe so lavabat but some of us think she may be the daughter qin mentioned

  8. LavaBat

    @e_voyager: So? 😛

  9. nikolai60

    PLEASE tell me she’s finally gonna get what’s coming to her.

  10. Kermit

    You know, it would be trivially easy for Jigsaw to illusion up the appearance that Murphy has Dead Eyes right about now…

  11. nikolai60

    @Kermit YES YES That is an AWESOME plan!

  12. nikolai60

    Taking another look, I’m reminded of two things:

    1. I’m not sure the Org qualifies as ‘true soldiers’, cannon fodder, redshirts, and expendable meat shields all seem more apt descriptions, at least of a majority of the guys we’ve seen so far.

    2. I’m reminded of a scenario that goes something like this: Arrogant rent-a-cop, outside there jurisdiction and armed with only a tazer, which is holstered, deciding to try to ‘show their authority’ with someone who is armed with a real gun, in their hand, who has yet to actually do anything against the law.

  13. Mid-boss

    hah, it looks like murph has not read sun tsu

    and nikki, the ‘soldier’ness of org is variable

  14. The_Rippy_One

    Okay, at any other time, I would applaud a commander for sticking to their guns and the chain of command (though there’d be an inquiry later, because, well, kidnapping) to protect their troops. But, this is Murphy, and Star Org, and, well, kidnapping, so, I am so hoping either Melody or Veled comes down like a ton ‘o bricks.

    Given Anyr naming conventions, Murphy shouldn’t be White Noise’s kid, unless mama divorced and remarried rather quickly…(ie, before the kid was born). Unless changing your name is a thing that happens in Anyr culture?

    And, Dang it Murphy, why aren’t you in wedding couture yet? No frump allowed on the set today!

  15. thebobmaster

    It’s official. Murphy definitely has an inflated ego compared to how much command over the station she actually has. Methinks she needs to have a nice little sit-down chat with, say, the entire Vaeo family. Especially Veled. I don’t think Veled would take too kindly to Murphy saying she can do whatever she wants because she makes the rules.

  16. Shad

    @ thebobmaster: I think you’re forgetting that Veled would be pissed just from the fact that Murphy is basically saying that her daughter cannot protect her baby brother from harm, after the perps were caught in the act and can’t exactly deny what they were doing, just because of some silly station rule.

    @The_Rippy_One: What do you mean by Anyr naming conventions?

  17. The_Rippy_One

    @Shad: Jig did a Formspring question on the subject: “The standard structure is “[First Name] of the [Father’s Name] [Mother’s Name]” – so all of WN’s kids ought to have “of the Silk” in their full names.

  18. The_Rippy_One

    ps – which is why Anyr have some of the niftiest/lyrical names. I wuv me some Anyr names…

  19. Hartree

    Let me translate what Murphy’s really saying:

    “Pardon me while I interrupt this questioning with an unbelievable BS line about unattended children before my goons say something that might get me in even worse trouble.”

  20. LavaBat

    @thebobmaster: Good catch! This is the Vaeo family’s show, not hers. Where is Cypress’s dad at the moment? >:3

  21. The_Rippy_One

    @Lavabat: Given what happened earlier? On WN’s speed dial, and listening, if WN has his comp on…

  22. e_voyager

    @Nikolai60 Can you link to that post? I remember it some what differently. As in object (of the) verb silk of the solarwinds and spirit of the Murphy’s law

  23. kemanorel

    @ Lavabat and RippyOne: You seem to have forgotten that there are flying video/security cameras everywhere. Remember Murphy butting in when Xanatos got caught trying to snipe White Noise? Some of the Vaeo family may be watching the show’s feed.

  24. nikolai60

    @e uh, post?

  25. The_Rippy_One

    @kemanorel: Not forgetting anything – including that Murphy can control the cameras. However, you are correct, there may be a Vaeo that is watching right now, even if WN didn’t call them. And if Murphy did move them…well, that, at least, is on the cameras, and with that to take into account, and no back-up footage to prove otherwise, the lack of evidence becomes evidence itself…

  26. Mid-boss

    she can controll cameras, but im still pretty sure her butt is going to be in the frying pan soon

  27. Sulucamas

    No way! NO! WAY!! 😯

    I get Murphy’s sick burn (nice sunspot/film burn background, btw), but can anyone help me wrap my head around Levana’s retort?

    @The_Rippy_One: What do you mean “frump?” That’s “business casual!” 😛

    @e_voyager: You can find the Formspring answer that Rippy was talking about right here. 🙂

  28. Anodyne

    @Sulcanus: I’m pretty sure what she’s saying is that she dropped the kid off with them, probably with general instructions of “keep an eye on him while I attend to some business”, and expected to be able to come back in five minutes or so (or whatever three beats translates to) and find him fine, if perhaps bored.
    “Kidnapped” or “assaulted” was not what she expected here. So what she’s saying, essentially, translates to “If the guy I dropped the kid off with / who volunteered to watch the kid for three beats wasn’t someone who could be trusted to mind a kid for even that long, then why did no one mention this before I walked away and left my kid in his care?”

    Which is a very good question, actually!

  29. nikolai60

    Uh guys, I might be misinterpreting stuff here, but it sounds like the argument has started accusing White as the kidnapper, but, from my view, it sounds like the Org tried to forcibly separate the two and THAT’s what she’s fussing about. Now, I might have misread both the comments and the page, but that’s what I saw.

  30. Sulucamas

    @Anodyne and nikolai60: Ah… thank you both! I was totally missing Levana’s snipe about Murphy’s lack of foresight. Classy that she hasn’t gone so far as to accuse the Org of any outright wrongdoing yet. 😮

  31. e_voyager

    In a Washu voice “she’s a diplomat, I swear it!”

  32. e_voyager

    @ sul thanks for the.link
    Also in a Washu voice “she’s a diplomat, I swear it!”

  33. Vulpis

    Looking at the instagram/Twitter teaser…
    She’s either throwing a tantrum, or she’s got the kind of constipation that turns your hair blonde and ends up with a week of build-up for a handful of minutes of battling. Or possibly both.
