So, meet Proxy! Bubbly, fun, and from the future! We’ll learn a lot more about her in the coming strips but right now we can just be thankful that she knocked Tripp out of the way of that Molecule Separator. That sounds like an ugly death.

I had a realization before introducing Proxy that none of my characters wear a hoodie. That’s a downright awful oversight. I love hoodies and own a few myself, so any comic of mine should have hoodies represented. Therefore, it made sense to have a character from the future have one, to show my confidence in the fact that they will be around forever. In nuclear winter, the cockroaches will wear hoodies.

Don’t forget to share Tripp with your pals and vote for it at the blue Topwebcomics icon!

@qazox @Francisco @The_Hankerchief - Who's to say she won't disappear next strip? :) Time travel stories can get really messy and I don't plan on making things complicated (for now anyway, heh). I will have more on this coming up soon. Plus, the assassin is still out there with a chance to kill Tripp...

ENSLAVEMENT! NOOOOOOO!

@Doc Savage - That's the best kind!

@Ultimate the Hedgehog - I'm imagining a Neo voice there.

@gamekidg7 - There is an assassin... With a molecule separator gun.

@Greg Bulmash - Well said.

@gamekidg7 - The assassin could be somebody important or it could just be a punching bag for our heroes. Either way, he/she is trying to kill Tripp, which is no good.

@Francisco - That's the beauty of time travel in stories... There are no set rules. We get to make them up. :)

@anonymous - There are a lot of reasons I chose that particular name... Most of the word's meanings apply to her in some way.

I can't believe that either Poe. Shouldn't future hoodies look more future-y?

Also if Proxy change the future, then shouldn't she have dissapeared, but if she disappeared then she couldn't have stop the assassination, therefore bringing the orginal time-line back, therefore bring her back to stop it..

Damn you paradoxes! you're making me cross-eyed.

Logic

I assumed she was in current clothing so that she didn't stand out.

The question is how to warn everyone without looking crazy?

@Qazon: Most time travel stories have paradoxes so I just accept them.

{edit}I just remembered that I'm writing a time travel story (in the forums of a webcomic -- nothing to do with the webcomic). It may or may not contain paradoxes (as that would be telling).

{edit 2}She, like the Krenim time ship, could be protected from changes in the timeline.

@qazox: If you want to see a real paradox, look up Homestuck and read through it. Your head will explode trying to wrap around all the paradoxes it has to offer.

On the bright side for Tripp, at least he's been warned about the incoming invasion, plus it seems he made a new friend.

On the other hand.....

OH MY GOD WE'RE GONNA BE ENSLAVED OH HOLY SHIT WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO

Oh my. A time traveler. A bubbly time traveler, lol. Actually it's possible she's created an alternative time-line and since she's now in this one she can't get back home. Need another roomie Tripp?

Wait, What? Molecular seperator? I thought that there was some assasin guy trying to kill Tripp!
@Doc Savage If that does happen, I think that Luke will attempt to put the moves on her.

@Fransisco: The nature of time is such that it encapsulates paradox and prevents it from becoming destructive.

By traveling back in time, she unintentionally caused an alternate time stream to fork off the time stream she was from. She is not paradoxed out of existence because now there are time streams in which the enslavement happened and in which it didn't. She is from the one where it did and that stream is unchanged.

So, while she has created a reality in which the enslavement will be avoided, the reality she came from will remain as crappy as ever.

The assasin

@spinester WELL THEN WHO IN THE NAME OF FUDGE BROWNIE COFFEE CAKE ICE CREAM IS THE MILKSHAKE-FUDGING ASSASSIN? AND WHY ARE ALL THE CURSE WORDS I TYPED OUT CENSORED AS FOOD ITEMS???????

@Greg Bulmash I think that happened in an episode of "Phineas and Ferb" one time, and a Candace from the future popped out of existence.

Theories of time travel

@Greg Bulmash:

That is one theory of time travel (which I personally believe) but, when writing fiction, it is sometimes convenient to choose another one and not everybody subscribes to that theory.
