Tuesday. Can. Not. Hold. Back! It just has to speculate what O.A.S.I.S. stands for. And you can't stop me! Muuhhhaaahhaa!

Obviously A Strange Icky Substance
Ogre Assisted Stabbing Instrument of Speediness
Ordering Awful Sushi in Sochi
Oasis Among Sand In Sahara
Obsolete Analog Switches In System
Orange Apricot Sesame Infused Salsa
Opera Arias Sound Incredibly Soothing
Overdone Acronym Speculation Is Silly

I'm having a hard time making out what Oasis is doing in that last panel. Looking at the first line however, I wouldn't be surprised if she has burst into tears.

The comment about Kusari running off AOL sounds like a twisted joke. Could they have any link with those free AOL CDs I kept getting at the start of the century?

Oh, and I suppose I should be glad that I guessed three out of the five words in the acronym right: Organic(ally), Augmented and Incendiary. Though those were the most obvious ones.

Well, it's been 18 years, 3 months, and 18 days, but we finally have a definitive answer to who or what Oasis really is.

There seems to be a big piece that Schlock surprisingly doesn't know about. Or somehow thinks is irrelevant, which would be odd given where he comes from and why he left there...

Oh my God! Information overload!

They are both satellite minds. Kusashi knew and didn't go mad from it. But then, she can't feel like humans feel, apparently. That is tragic.

Poor Oasis. But this opens up possibilities. The technology that made her is beyond Hereti-Corp's comprehension, and therefore should be beyond their full control. Know thyself, Oasis! Quickly!

How immensely satisfying it is to finally find out the truth about Oasis, after SO MANY YEARS of waiting. Good God, two decades of waiting, the majority of my life. What an immensely long story before the reveal is made.

So, uh... how often is it that a writer keeps you waiting this long and actually gives you a payoff that really knocks your socks off? Pete hid the breadcrumbs the whole way, but we still didn't get it while in the end giving us something both satisfying and pretty awesome.

Sorry if I'm gushing, but this has to be one of the best payoffs in Sluggy history. Thanks for carrying us this long, Pete! Bravo!

I'm wondering how the Web factors into this.

Coming out of lurk mode. I just want to say Bravo to the page header parallax effect.
I spent (at least) five minutes just scrolling up and down.

*Back to lurking!*

Interesting. However, we still don’t know why Oasis is one of the few forces that operates outside of the Web.

That occurred to me too, and could be related to what Schlock speculated was alien or future tech, but saying anything more would be to Spec-y for this thread.

Well we do know her clone DNA is based off of a Fate Magic user.

Almost 20 years and we get a big reversal on what we thought about robo-Oasis.
And poor Oasis. "Curse my full suite of emotions"

Also: Gymnastics "again"?

Coming out of lurk/quiet mode to say:
(yesterday's reaction) Holy sh*t.
(today's reaction) MEAT PUPPET!!! Ouch that has gotta hurt.

Edit: I was more explicit and found that sluggy forums automagically changed my word to "poop". Hilarious!
[It's been that way since at least '04. word replacements for most of the usual swear words. -G]

Even though she was a "weird girl" sasha seemed to display more emotion than just envy.

Didn't she?


... right?
