"We felt like lost pieces, and they kept us in another puzzle box. Being wrong pieces, we cannot always fit in. It is important to realize that this is not our puzzle. Trying to force the piece to fit is a ridiculous effort, unnecessary, tiring. We should create our own puzzle from what we actually have: just one piece... Make it fit our own puzzle, piece by piece, just as the primitive original cell continued dividing until it created an entirely new organism... Invest in the process. Why try to fit in a place which is not ours? We'll only succeed provided we comply with who we are." --Max Steiner

    I was wondering if I had somehow missed this one on the Hubris site. But I just checked the archive, and it’s not there. If it was, it would fall between the December 24 and January 1 strips.

    I chanced upon it while doing a search, around Christmas 2017. Rest assured I would link to more Kory stories if they were out there, but as far as I know, The Cat is the only one online besides the LSoS tales.

    Funny how often pot becomes perturbed upon encountering kettle.

    Yep… Paul Stanley. Or someone made up like him, don’t know which.

    Ever notice how Kara gets some of the best (read: goofiest) facial expressions? If ever you have the time or inclination to go through the whole strip, you’ll find plenty scattered throughout.

    Hah! Can’t say that I did, but now that you mentioned it, I’m picturing this lot all bursting into ‘Tonight,’ but expanded from a quintet into an octet. Oh, the cacophony…
