Text overlay: Scared? Scared of what? Can you figure out what Marelle has figured out?
P.S: Falingard, see if you can make the comic image file only have date in the name, not the time. Danke in advance!

OMG :O


My theory:
I bet she's afraid she'll kill people. She obviously knew about her evil nature, and did her best to stop it. She's bypassing her programming by insisting she needs more information.

Nobody can know everything and she knows it!

I bet Murelle (sp?) has to save her by reprogramming her Very Happy


Hey, anyone know where FG's youtube link is for his animated cartoon with the kitty and the mer kitty?

I can't find it on the site anymore Sad

Well, here are the three laws as I know them:

1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

I suspect Marelle thinks Prism is afraid of her own destruction, if she does try to help the people in that building. But then again, the three laws may never have been programmed into Prism to begin with, if that "Rainbow Lovechild" incident is any indication. "Tactic selected: Stab repeatedly" is a sure way to violate Law # 1. Nerdy

I believe her programing is to gather %SUFFICIENT% knowledge, and then
switch to the Rainbow Lovechild mode permanently. She wants to stay in
existence, and doesn't really crave massacre. Marelle was a danger to her
current state, so she was aggresive towards her even in normal mode.
What she did, probably, is move the definition of %SUFFICIENT% knowledge
way back, extending her 'expiration date'.

So, Prism of Nine is a scaredycat,

Possible - But might be unlikely. Should be interesting to see her reaction to Marelle's assumption

What if she had accidentally killed someone she cared about due to her programming! That would make me scared!

I'm sorry, but I can't do that! Having the time in the filename is how the system work. Incidentally, I'd appreciate if you didn't put the comic image in your post like that - You can simply put a link to the page itself instead if you want.

As for all the theories! Nobody's right so far 8D A lot of assumptions are made and I like to think the conclusion can be reached with only the information already given, without making assumptions - but then this all comes from inside my head. XD
