helen99: babbage+lovelace (babbage+lovelace)
A comic based roughly on Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage. In this particular version of reality, Ada is a mathematical genius who hates poetry and smokes a pipe, and Babbage invented the most powerful number-crunching machine of the era. She's the only one who can understand him or his inventions. Together they fight crime, for varying values of crime. Their latest challenge, given to them by the Duke of Wellington no less, is to solve the financial crisis of their own time (which looks suspiciously like that of our own time)... The artist was just having fun with the comic, and says she doesn't know if she will create any more episodes, but she liked the suggestion to make teeshirts out of some of the panels...

helen99: babbage+lovelace (2D Goggles)
Ada Lovelace and Charles Babbage in an Alternate 19th century, wherein, "what actually happened was, Babbage and Lovelace successfully developed the computer in the mid 1830s (giving humanity the necessary technological advantage to repel the alien invasion of 1898) and used their combined powers to fight crime and have adventures. Although they did have a somewhat idiosyncratic view of what constitutes 'crime'."

The author was just messing around, but readers begged for more episodes (I can see why).

Episode 1 - Ada Lovelace - The Origin

Episode 2 - Lovelace and Babbage vs. The Economy, Part 1

Episode 3 - Lovelace and Babbage vs. The Economy, Part 2

helen99: Two Stars Dance (Two Stars Dance)
Dark the stars that do not shine, and dark the matter hidden
Dark these wispy thoughts of mine that come to me unbidden
of distance and infinity, no ending or beginning
and transient divinity, their mortal underpinning...
