#843 Spice Free Zone

It looks like the vast majority would still like titles, so for the time being (at least the next chapter) they'll still be around. I think I will change the font though. Perhaps a different font for each chapter? Anyway, thank you all for your input.

  1. Danger! Danger! Doom, Doom, Doom!

    I’m half expecting Emrys to wind up naked and handcuffed to the bed the next day with his wallet and clothes missing. This is going WAY too well and I’m just thinking Emrys’s desperation is going to make him broke and break the banks of the entire gang.

    I’m guessing Beth will be having the time of her life with Mr. Wonderful, unaware the disaster that Emrys’s decision is going to cost everyone…

    1. Hookers don’t kiss. So Emrys is safe, I’d say. So far The worst idea seems to be a strip club 🙂

  2. So, at least Emrys Is gonna get laid. Let’s wish it to him. This might cheer him up a bit. After all, she Is really pretty.

    1. @Gorbi, exactly, when one goes to that kind of strip club, it’s the customer who gets stripped. Of all one’s $. 😉

  3. My non-linear brain senses the possibility of a new recurring character here…

    1. I wrote earlier that it would ve funny, if she is also from Portland. Emrys would have a relationship to inflate.

  4. I’m with Gorbi and Parvus on this one, I think she’s really just what she appears to be, and whether that turns into something more in the future, who knows. I trust Eric to take this story where it needs to go and I’m just going to keep enjoying it.

    I don’t normally like ‘slice of life’ type comics, they often feel a little forced, or over the top for the sake of humor, and one of the things I like most about Bohemian Nights is that it feels authentic. One of the most common pieces of advice I’ve read from accomplished authors is, “write what you know”, and I appreciate that Eric takes the time to develop his story and characters at a pace that seems, if not actual real-time (because that would likely be dull), at least realistic enough for me to suspend disbelief and get all of the important moments.

    Go for it Emrys. Maybe you’ll regret it later, maybe not, but at least you won’t be able to beat yourself up for not taking a chance.

      Thank you so much. I’ve tried for a long time to get to this point in my story telling. And although I may not always hit the bullseye, I’m getting closer.

  5. Eric, you’re welcome, I like to make my opinions known. As for Emrys and Ms. X, I don’t think it’s polite to have sex with someone whose name you don’t know. 😉

    1. I can’t say I disagree with you on that last note, but then again I’ve never been in Emrys’ shoes before either, so it’s not exactly something I’ve had to consider. I think in this case, well, I dunno, maybe a little comfort will be good for both of them? Life is very peculiar sometimes, so the best we can do is try to deal with it each moment and hope we make the right decisions. I can’t pretend to know what is best for Emrys or the mystery lady, but sometimes a lifeline shows up at the right time from an unexpected source.

    2. bohemiannightsthecomic

      I agree. Emrys should know her name. But sometimes, it happens this way too.

    3. sometimes sex with someone whose name you don’t know is exactly what you need!

  6. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KbjQoYAG7Lk When we have just opened topic of Spice Girls 😀

  7. Maybe Emrys gets an idea what it is like to give and receive without expectation. Maybe the lady, too. Been in a similar situation a few times. Took a while longer for the wisdom to take root. Expectations lead to obligations, then to guilt, then to shame. Emrys needs to learn that his attraction to Beth does not mean he is obligated to Beth. Beth as she is presently isn’t capable of non toxic emotional relationships.
    It’s hard not to stay engaged with this webcomic when I travel over a certain bridge and by a certain storefront every workday.

    1. bohemiannightsthecomic

      well said.
      That is also a very cryptic last sentence. I’m intrigued. 🙂

  8. A Reader from Germany

    I love this comic!

    I can relate to Emrys, pining over past and maybe-present-or-future, but also could’ve/should’ve been relationships. Realizing YEARS later that, well f*ck, might have been my failure then. Or just now.

    Although I have never ever met a girl who offered me a no-strings-attached
    night of nookie to get over that (and if it’s just for this one night), so I am a bit envious 😉

    1. bohemiannightsthecomic

      Thank you very much! I am taking pages from my own past when I write Emrys. -although the prospect of a no-strings attached night never came to me either, I knew people who had such an indecent happen to them.

  9. @Eric, I think you mean “incident” not “indecent”. Anyway, if it’s a typo, it’s a funny one. :)) :)) :)).

    1. In a way it is indecency 😀 But it amused me too. Unfortunately, there is no upvote option here.

  10. Emrys is going to have the time of his life. Beth’s night is going to be a disaster. She will look for Emrys to commiserate, and he’s going to finally give her a piece of his mind.

    Maybe…
