'Plainclothes' for an entomorph, of course, means no clothes.

Tiddlywink was one of the three visible security officers in this crowd shot.  Tal was originally a bit worried about letting an entomorph join the security force - what if she's not taken seriously because she's an entomorph?  Until Jendolyn pointed out that you can't expect the tourists to treat the entomorphs seriously if the local human authorities don't set the example.

There are few things that surprise ne'er-do-wells more than an entomorph with a badge landing on them.

Start from the beginning of this arc.

*snrk* I really, really, REALLY want to see Tiddlywink tackle someone and wave her badge in someone's face.  That would be AMAZEBALLS.

If nothing convinces Dick that he's honestly no longer on Earth, an entomorph ought to...

I love Tal facepalming in the first panel. How do you talk to someone in complete denial of the facts? :D 

Can't wait to see how this plays out.

Officer Tiddlywink is now the best character ever solely because of the name and rank combination.

I want to poke holes in Dick's logic that 'white women = not unknown,' because honey what, but instead I'm just going to cheerfully anticipate his reaction to Officer Tiddlywink in her plainclothes, and kinda giggle over 'plainclothes' meaning 'naked.'

(I like how her posture says 'nope not looking at you looking at my talons totally my talons' but the shading on her eye says 'I have compound eyes, I'm looking frickin' everywhere, man.'

( Blug.   I mean, I know you know that he's being a pile of awful, but I didn't emphasise it properly to say that in the first reply.  Text-based annoyance! )

Oh, absolutely, I get that he's coming from a place of both ignorance and sheer stubbornness, I just facepalm a lot.  I mean, even if he thinks these people are weirdo frogman-suit-and toga-wearing natives of Some Island he got shanghaied or shipwrecked off to, Tal is super-white.  *gets into that early 20th century mindset*  And sometimes, white explorers bring their sisters, daughters, and/or wives along when they go exploring (or flee their own country in disgrace, whatever), because who else is going to look after them while he's gone?  Nobody, that's who.

It's the idea that "white man = might still be unknown, white woman = on the grid" that makes me facepalm.  Come on, Dick, they could be the descendents of the crews of a French naval ship and a pirate ship that scuttled in Fair Wherever The Hell We Are two hundred years ago, settled their differences because all the powder was wet, interbred with the natives, and that's why there's a fashion for tights, skintones ranging from 'very brown' to 'pretty pasty,' and only the whitest white boy has a language in common with you.  Hell, you could even tell yourself the castaways liked their new home so much that they lied to their kids about where they were so they'd focus on building up home instead of going exploring.

Poor boy just isn't very good at coming up with new AU ideas on the fly, I guess.
