#388 – home again

That's the end of this story! Thanks for reading. There'll probably be some one-shots next week while I work on the next chapter. Do you want to attend the most awesome webcomic-centric convention ever? You totally should get tickets for Webcomics Weekend! Full disclosure: I am an organizer and take lots of pride in this show. So come see me and dozens of other webcomic artists. And get your ticket soon, because they may sell out! I'm only going to offering the handmade minis for a few more days. After that I won't be able to make anymore! Grab one while you can.

  1. Allow me to be the first to say…

    What the Fuh?

    1. their new apartment is a gap in the space-time continuum!

    2. I second this motion.

  2. Even as a straight male, I would totally make out with Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie. God DAMN.

    1. But if I'm correct that Bowie look is from the cover of Aladdin Sane?

      1. Battlecries and champagne!

        So I totally just discovered this comic yesterday, and after about three hours of obsessive reading I'm completely in love and mostly caught up. O'Malley's endorsement guided me here, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to have a meltdown when I run out of strips to read. =D

  3. Man, Marek is so sweet.

    Oh I mean David Bowie, sorry.

  4. dun dun dun!

  5. so that's how they're dreaming the same dreams!

  6. Is Hanna hallucinating or something? 😮

  7. wot a tweest!

  8. So that's what's under all of Marek's hair!

  9. Hanna! Someone laced your herbaceous goods!

    But it looks like you maybe don't mind (I don't blame you)

    1. Wait wait wait no

      Is it just one of those really persistent radio ads, in real life, that's been subliminally infiltrating their otherwise normal sexy dreams? Thus providing a Scooby Doo-esque logical explanation for this whole episode? Please help me Meredith I am confus 😮

      1. Yes, the third to last panel is a reference to The Wizard of Oz movie, in which "it was all a dream". She suddenly realises this, and is then able to go back to her normally sexy dreams.

      2. I'm 99% sure you're spot on, hence Marek/Bowie's "Wait a minute, isn't this-"


    Clearly they went through all that trouble over nothing :/

  11. 1400 Sq.Feet of space. Oddity.

  12. Could someone explain this to me? Why does he look like David Bowie? Never has OP gone over my head line this :c

    1. It all goes back to the beginning of this storyline. Here's the second comic (in which Hanna mentions David Bowie) to jog your memory: http://www.octopuspie.com/2010-08-06/379-theres-n

      1. Brilliant ending. But I think that it's in fact this (http://www.octopuspie.com/2010-08-04/378-a-door-next-to-this-door/) comic that you'll need to re-read if you don't get it.

  13. haha. gentry creek.

  14. I'll admit, I didn't quite get it at first.. then I read the comments, went back and read the first comic in the storyline, and went, "OOoooooooh!" Nice.

  15. Do you know what's more awesome than an update with a David Bowie cameo? Learning that you can get to octupus pie through school computers.

    1. Or as in my case, through work computers! it makes my day ^_^

  16. what a great ending 🙂

  17. Ohh I get it. Thanks guys for cluing me in.

  18. So the real question is

    Who looks like Sam Rockwell right now?

  19. A friend of mine sent me this comic and said it reminded him of me…

    …yep, I can see the similarities.

  20. Who wouldn't make out with Ziggy Stardust-era Bowie, Honestly.

  21. why did he turn int ziggy stardust?

  22. What Marek says in Panel 3 is very sweet, and Hanna's expression in panel 3 is amazing.

    Also, I love the implication that they did it on the couch where they were guesting. Lol.

  23. Awesome ending. I'm loving being back on the three a week schedule.

  24. I like how Hanna seizes the moment! (Even if it is a dream….)

  25. Quick Hanna! Before something happens!


  26. Oh god we've gone too deep into dream. Haana, grab your totem!

    I said totem, not toke 'em!

  27. So how much of the arc was a dream, then? The whole thing, or just the beginning and end? Did they actually move out?

  28. blew… my… mind


    Seriously though; was I the only one thinking Inception there?

  30. All right, I had to actually re-read all this story in one sitting to finally get the joke.

  31. is that supposed to be, like, gene simmons?

  32. I'm still so confused.

  33. I get that their shared dreams were just a radio commercial, and that Hannah's dream involved David Bowie, but I'm not quite sure what her mental state is supposed to be in the last two panels. Is she dreaming? Having a flashback? Metaphorically realizing that Marek was her David Bowie the *whole time*? I don't get it.

  34. Holy..I cracked up so bad I love this comic more and more! I'm so glad I have a lot left to read… no wait what..less than 40 left until I'm left waiting for updates??? NO NO NO!

    Thanks for a great comic, greetings from snowcovered Finland!

  35. It's the dream again!

  36. The David Bowie Cometh.

  37. Aww rip bowie
