Vault Brain - Ant Pheromones by DanShive Vault Brain - Ant Pheromones by DanShive
Vault Brain - Vault Brain Loses It

EDIT: Continues in Part 2!

Ant Queen Pheromones are an item in Fallout 3 that temporarily raise the users charisma by 3, but also temporarily lowers their intelligence and perception by 3 each. It's worth noting that this is on a scale of 1 to 10 with 5 being the average.

When I first encountered this item, it seemed odd to me that losing intellect and perceptiveness would make someone a smoother talker. My interpretation was that it temporarily rendered the user a sexy idiot, which still seems problematic given differing genders and sexual orientations, but whatever. Combine that line of thinking with Vault Brain, and here we are.

In fairness, a Charisma boost in Fallout doesn't give you much of a bonus to the actual Speech skill. There's a Speech bonus, true, but it's quite small, even for +3 CHA. So you could just justify that having more Charisma makes you more likeable, which makes people SLIGHTLY better-disposed towards you, meaning your relatively-limited speaking ability (from being a 'tard) isn't as much of a limiting factor. Which does follow, sort of, even if we can't exactly quantify charisma or likeability in real life.

I think your approach is more amusing, though.

(Also yes, I'm so very late, I know.)

I really like the intermediate change Daria with the lighter brown hair.

I'm not familiar with Fallout, but I love the artwork and the humor.

She turns into Britney? Should have seen that coming!

...At least she didn't turn into Kevin, though I can't imagine which one is dumber. Him or Britney.

Nice comic, I didn’t bother much with speech while playing Fallout, most of the time I simply killed whatever was causing problems. It would be interesting to see what would happen to Daria if she took Ant nectar instead (+4 strength, -2 intelligence, -2 charisma) , that’s more my style.
