An online comic about Ace. A young geek that's too nice for his own good. All he wants is a regular life and a regular girlfriend. But he knows that isn't going to happen. – CGI – Adult situations. Artistic nudity. Not suitable for children or Fundies.
Ace: The thing is, I'm surprised they still think I don't know there's more going on than I've been told.
Grampy: Perhaps they are simply pretending that they don't know that you know more than you should. It's the nature of the game that no one can be partly in and partly out.
Ace: I've picked up more than a few hints that my skills would be welcome. I'm a real whiz at encryption and decryption. I'm not supposed to tell anyone this, but I've solved more than one problem for Mom's CO, Colonel Miles.
Grampy: You're right, you shouldn't tell anyone. Lucky for you I still have the clearance to know that kind of thing.
Ace: Well, I haven't jumped in primarily over how it would worry Mom. I worry enough about her as it is. But, Luna, she doesn't have anyone to look out for her, and I'm afraid that she's been noticed.
Grampy: She is an adult, you know, and bright enough to know what she'd be getting into. It can be more dangerous for everyone if you try to dabble.
Ace: I just don't want her to get used and cast aside.
Grampy: Ace, I think it's safe to say that anyone that would be aware of Luna, would also be aware of you. And they would know what I know.
Ace: What's that?
Grampy: You don't lose your cool. You don't make idle threats. You don't give up. And violence might be the last thing you'd resort to, but that doesn't mean you aren't very, very dangerous.
