Beth with the line of the night.
Good Burn, but still
You are creating the most delightful trainwrecks!
Thanks for giving us relatable and wonderfully flawed characters.
Interestingly enough, I can see how the douchenozzle (sorry don’t remember it’s name) could be a likeable guy if we didn’t know he was slime.
It’s come off as confident, amiable, and freewheeling, a guy grooving on life and rebuilding friendships after a tragedy.
Buuuutttt we know he is a shite bag and I, for one, look forward to seeing him get his arse kicked.
Hopefully in a redemption arc for my good buddy, Nose Pierced Wall Puncher.
The thing that confuses me the most is that it has to be clear what is going on with Emrys and Stephanie, and no one is taking Emrys aside. I mean, I guess I can see why Beth might not be – she knows her motivation isn’t pure. But the other guys and girls are letting him down.
I’ve been in Emrys’ situation a long time ago. (This whole story line is loosely based on that time). Most of my friends knew what was going on but rarely did they take me aside and set me straight. And the one or two that did I either didn’t believe them or simply resigned myself to the situation that that’s what happens when you’re in a relationship. I’m sure the others kind of know what is going on with Emrys and Steph, but are a bit reluctant to intervene just yet. (keep in mind, it’s only been about 4 months since they met and first went out.)
well I can see Rich saying to himself challenge accepted LOL he and Steph would be an interesting battle
Wow, some good observations from the comments on this scene! I especially like Nicholas Walls’ suggestion for a Dave redemption arc, because that poor guy needs a break as much as, if not more than, Mark did.
I may not be overly fond of Stephanie, but at least she’s selfish for her own reasons and not for misguided revenge. If she and Rich got together, he’d be poison in her veins and destroy her eventually, because I think she’s more fragile than she appears to be, even though she hides it well (if she lets him, I think Emrys could help her in that regard – consistent caring can do wonders for a wounded soul). She can control Emrys because he’s easy-going, but Rich is a stone cold manipulator and reminds me of some of the movie/TV portrayals of drug cartel bosses; totally confident of his superiority and willing to do anything to ensure that everyone knows it. Maybe the Green Man, busy as he is, will play a part in getting this sleaze to leave town, though it would be most satisfying if his former friends realize what he really is and kick him to the curb themselves. Somehow I think that JoJo and Annabel will suss this guy’s true nature out before the guys will though, which would be good news for us since they are still supporting characters. 🙂
Why have I formed the opinion that Rich is a nasty, controlling, bug-fucking needledick wannabe Machiavelli?
And should die in flames, with his airway getting cool, clean air?
At least Emrys won’t have a hangover the next day. (If he does, it’s time to dump Miss Streaks.)
I got to say to you all…you guys are the BEST! I am so pleased by all of your insightful comments and the fact that you do this so regularly, it just amazes me. It truly makes me happy to to see reader’s responses on the comics (even if I can’t say if they are correct or not as to not give away any spoilers.) This! This is what truly keeps me going. Knowing there are people reading this who are invested in the characters and enjoy all the plot developments. I deeply and humbly thank you all. 🙂 🙂 🙂
Go rewatch ‘Field of Dreams’ and it’ll all make sense. 😉
You’re welcome BN. It’s so well written it’s like a “slice of life.” (I do have one quibble- I miss the humorous hypertexts. Now they give only the page number.. Could you please resume the comments?)
Haha. Okay. I haven’t been feeling very witty lately, but I’ll give it a try again. 🙂
BN, I hope you get well soon, and thanks. They really are very funny.
