Well, we knew Chapel’s mom was sneaky, but we didn’t know she was THIS sneaky! Replacing all of Chapel’s music with Justin Bieber…that’s a low blow, isn’t it? Although to be fair, it does make it so that Chapel will go to sleep! When you guys were kids (or if you ARE currently a kid) did something like this ever happen to you? What weird punishments have your parents ever thought up? Let’s chat about it below! For me, my parents would threaten to take away either my books or my laptop when I misbehaved – which, to me, was the most horrible punishment conceivable.

Anyway, I hope you guys liked this week’s strip! Did everyone have a good Valentine’s Day? Let’s get a good discussion going in the comments, Chapelaniacs/Chapelites/Chapel Club/Chapel’s Faithful/whatever you’d like to call us!
Lcomment plain
And now, for something completely serious...depending on the DRM scheme in use, poor Chapel might have a really hard (and/or expensive) time getting "her" music back. Too bad she spent her allowance on Gaga outfits ;)

Emma-
Once my Mom told me I couldnt read and that i had to play board games with my brothers! We ALL complained and it was a VERY long two hours!
Isabelle 2/23/12 reply
I LOVE board games, though! They're one of my absolute favorite things to do!

Good for you then. tell us all if the movie does the Book Justice or not. I have appointments tomarrow then, so movie watching is out for me.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/23/12 reply
It's not today, it's the 23rd of March! I can't wait for it! :D
Emma 2/23/12 reply
Sweet! I'm actually am not a huge HG fan.. probably because I have NOT read the books yet..... Have you ever read Gregor the Overlander? It's the same author as the Hunger Games.... I've read most of it, I just haven't read like some of the last book, but I think you should read it!
Miss L.S.P 2/23/12 reply
Hmm, I've heard about those books! I need to try them, especially since you like them!
Emma 2/23/12 reply
Oh my god oh my god I NEED TO GET TICKETS! My mom, my best friend, and I are all gonna go together! My mom and I ADORE Peeta, but my friend likes Gale better...
Emma 2/23/12 reply
the books are amazing yay movie gonna see it for my birthday
Yarin 2/24/12 reply
I have never read the book. So, what is the whole idea of the book?
Isabelle 2/23/12 reply
...
WUT
YOU MUST READ THE HUNGER GAMES
Honestly, it's WAY too complicated to explain here, but basically it's set several thousand years into the future in a country called Panem (meaning bread in Latin). It's run by a cruel government called the Captiol, run by evil President Coriolanus Snow. Each year since an infamous rebellion occurred that destroyed the 13th District of Panem, there is an annual Hunger Games, which pits one boy and girl, ages 12 to 18, from each of the 12 remaining Districts against each other in a fight to the death.
See? Very complicated, and I haven't even gotten to Katniss or Prim or Gale or...
PEEEEEEETTTTTTTAAAAAA <333333
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 2/24/12 reply
Why is the country called bread? And why were the hunger games assembled? So Confusing I guess I'll have to read it
Isabelle 3/2/12 reply
OMG LUV THAT BOOK!!! I hav red it a billion times!
GoGo 3/5/12 reply
This response's information is courtesy of yabbering friend.
The Hunger Games were assembled to put on a show for the rich snotty people from the Capitol. The whole thing is live (I think) on television, as I said, for entertainment.
I'm not sure, but I don't really think the country is called bread.
Ginny Weasley fan 3/22/12 reply
And the districts get poorer as the numbers increase.
Katniss is the main character, Prim (Primrose) is her sister. Gale is her friend who calls her Catnip. PEEEEEETTTTTTTAAAAAA (Peeta) is the baker's boy and Katniss's district partner in the Hunger Games.
Prim gets 'reaped' for the Hunger Games, but Katniss volunteers and goes to the Games in place of her.
All the districts make different things.
1 - luxury items for the Capitol
2 - weaponry, trains, and supplies
Peacekeepers.
3 - technology
4 - seafood
5 - power
6 - transportation
7 - lumber
8 - textiles
9 - grain
10 - livestock
11 - agriculture
12 - coal mining (Katniss is from this district)

(holds up a sign and it says) "I am sorry, I can not speak yet. But i can not help but notice that Chapel has the makings to become a powerful Magical Girl. I am wondering if she would be interested in signing a contract with me to be come one."
Kyubey 2/22/12 reply
Oh my god BEST COMMENT EVER! How did you know that I just started watching Madoka Magica? You must be psychic...
Emma 2/23/12 reply
/人◕‿‿ ◕人\

(holds up sign) Would you want to sign a contract with me Emma?
Kyubey 2/23/12 reply
Yes, I would! I actually drew a "magical girl" version of myself over at my tumblr, complete with an outfit and powers.

Although according to my friend (who's seen all of Madoka, while I've only seen the first episode) I don't know the "true meaning" of the contract yet...So no spoilers, please!
Emma 2/23/12 reply
DEAR GOD NOOOOO!!!!

(grabs my claymore sword... yes, I DO have one and know how to use it, and chops Kyubey in two, Homura style)

Emma! I watched that show as well and I know what will happen to you if you make a contract with that monster!

... i Think i see another Kyubey coming, so run away Emma! JUST RUN! and take the other girls in this comment zone with you! I'll hold him off as long as I can!
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/24/12 reply
Please no spoilers! I've only seen episode 1 so far!
Emma 2/24/12 reply
O_o.....

truthfully, This show is very good and deep, but it is NOT like any other magical girl show you have ever seen. The only reason i am not telling you hold off watching it is that i would like to think that you are old enough to handle it. watch the next two episodes and then make up your mind if you can handle any more.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 2/24/12 reply
Well, I watched the next two in the background while coloring tomorrow's strip and I LOVE it. I was so not expecting that to happen to Mami, but the dark twist is really fascinating. This is definitely my kind of thing!
Emma 2/24/12 reply
very well, all i will say is that IT GETS WORSE from there on!

(chops another Kyubey into bits)

I side with Horuma, btw!

(holds up a sign) "That was rather rude of you Dr. Taxil. We were just trying to get Emma and the other potential magical girl talent to sign contracts with me"

YAAAY I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT'S GOING ON!
Emma, the various manga/anime conversations that go on on this site have caused me to look up so many things on Google...you have no idea.

just had a thought i see that chapel doesn't have hands or fingers and maybe i can use that design to give her like lite blades on her wrists or something

Emma 2/21/12 reply
Didnt realize until after I posted lol but it makes sense and isnt arietty just an animated version of the borrowers
Yarin 2/21/12 reply
Yes, but Miyazaki still puts his own spin on the story!
Emma 2/22/12 reply
good then i will go see it
Yarin 2/22/12 reply
Miyazanki rarely writes an original work any more. Howl's Moving Castle, Porco Rosso, Spirited Away, all of these are stories he copied (Spirited away is suposedly a retelling of Alice in wonderland and Porco Rosso is a legend)
The Borrowers was one of my favorite stories growing up I should totally go see this new film (I hadn't actually heard of it until yesterday)
stikibunn 2/23/12 reply
well Miyazaki's movie's are really good whether it was already a story or not right?
Miss L.S.P 2/23/12 reply
Yes, I agree! None of his stories were "copies," they're just adaptations, and excellent ones! :D
Emma 2/23/12 reply
 
Emma-
It would be cool if you did a chapel comics contest, where you could submit a comic, and the winning one could be on the website, or get Chapel store stuff.

My parents haven't really thought of any crazy or weird ways to punish me. And, yes, I did have a happy Valentine's Day, and I haven't eaten that much of my candy yet, and, most likely, I probably won't finish it. (Maybe). One kid in my class ate all of his candy in one day! I think it was the same day that we got all of the candy. Maybe I'll give some candy to my friends or to my brother.
Blarber123 2/19/12 reply
That's a good idea, I'm sure your brother would like it! You should totally give some to him :D

Yay, Chapelites! My suggestion :D

Oh yeah, I forget if I've said or not...I like "Chapelites"! While Chapelaniacs is cool too, it seems a little "clumsy" in that it's so long xD

Awesome strip!
And are we talking about studio ghibli? Yay yay yay biggest fan!!!! I was in Ireland last august, right when Arietty happened to come out in theaters there! Really really nice film--not as plot driven as others but (of course) the animation is BEAUTIFUL.
ava 2/18/12 reply
Yes, it is beautiful! I saw it a few days ago! Very strange that it came out such a long time ago in Ireland, though, since it's only just now coming out here...
Emma 2/22/12 reply
 
the only time i remember my parents doing something like that is when i was like 9 or 10...i kept fighting with this girl on the neoboards (lol) so my mom said i couldn't go on the computer for an obscene amount of time. er, it FELT obscene, at least. i can't remember how long it actually was.
hopefully i won't do anything worthy of too much punishment in the next few years! :P grounding doesn't really work when you're homeschooled and a mile in the woods, so
lexdysic 2/18/12 reply
Lexdysic, hey! Oh my gosh I used to play Neopets all the time...ALSO you're homeschooled too? I didn't know that! And yeah, grounding doesn't really work too well on us homeschoolers, does it? XD

oh my GAWD, NEOPETS! I used to LOVE THAT SITE!!!!
Oh, plots, how I loved you.

Yeah totally! XD

Let's see...on Valentine's Day I mostly just did homework and some drawings for fun! (I know, I know, totally exciting Valentine's Day). I'm glad you had a good day and I'm so happy you like the strip!
Emma 2/17/12 reply
That's still a good Valentine's Day! Yes, I LOVE the strip! Haha!
Katherine 2/18/12 reply
 
POOOOR CHAPEL-- that would be THE worst punishment EVER. That would be almost as bad as finding Justin Bieber posters plastered all over your walls. Must say, though, Chapel's got a clever mom!

I had a pretty good Valentine's Day-- other than the fact that I spent the whole day laying on the couch sick. My dad brought gifts home for everybody, you know, those adorable little stuffed animals in drinking mugs. Best of all, my best friend's mom had her baby boy on Valentine's Day!
Emily13 2/17/12 reply
Yes, Chapel's mom IS clever! That's a shame that you were sick though, but at least you got presents and your friend got a baby brother! :D

My discipline wasn't terribly creative, but it was effective! Like you, my mother would ban the computer - though she only took my books if I left them lying around where they shouldn't be haha. Otherwise, I was generally given chores, or had my pocket money confiscated. Pretty standard!

Yes, my mother would do the same thing with the computer. Quite frustrating.

When we see chapel's parents they should be like the adults in Peanuts or in Muppet babies methinks. No head, just a body with the head off-panel. Although Chapel might be too old to do that trope properly.
