Re: Imagine That 2015-05-29

My bet is someone's mom who is upset with Atsali's unintentional rise to Queen Bee status at the school. Human mothers have taken out hits on their daughter's rivals in the real world. While 'Sali is self conscious about her looks, the fact is, she is stunningly beautiful, well liked and respected ...

Re: Imagine That 2015-05-29

Next week is the big reveal - the "acidic bigot." I'm betting it's: 1. Someone who hasn't been seen prior in the strip, or was mentioned in passing; 2. Someone who is "powerful" enough that she (he?) can bully a girl like Atsali - or is possibly even anti-Siren; and 3. Someone who has body-shame is...

Re: Imagine That 2015-05-29

If I can derail this lovely exchange about biographical drama for an actual commentary on the recent strips . . . :roll: What is the point, exactly, of having a paranormal-only pool if everyone is in their human guise? Aside from the usual mouthful of bestial teeth, the only hints we see that this ...

Re: Just Be Happy 2015-04-08

People come in and mention Phix and all that. It just makes me wonder... Are the characters in the comic too powerful? Too well connected? I've thought about this ever since our main cast began to ascend to Paranormal-hood, and part of me still feels it's... Tacky? There was a certain fun aspect ab...

Re: Just Be Happy 2015-04-08

Normally, I don't like to see people who are politically connected throw their weight around, but if the pool staff deferred to the prudish mom, then I think it would be completely in order for Katherine and Atsali to call in the big guns as a counter. After all Monica did say she would have Atsali'...

Re: From Her Past 2015-03-20

(cracks knuckles) There's only one, somewhat logical, somewhat eyebrow-raising (and thus close to the "willing suspension of unbelief") explanation to all this: PTSD affects people differently, and at different speeds. (For another webcomic example, head over here and read forward.) The full force ...

The girl on her last night at the Orphanage. I'm trying to imagine how soul crushing it would be to be an orphan an think you were about to be adopted, then have that hope snatched away at the last minute. Which is basically what just happened to Nadette. What none of, Nadette included, realized abo...

Today, while checking on Tina, her fangs are especially prominent After Shelly came back from her stay in the Time Forest, the only time she showed fang was when she was under st...

Re: No Wait 2014-11-25

In the last panel Monica is so embarrassed and so intent on seeming non threatening that her teeth are back to pre Jaguar Girl dentation.

As in normal, human, teeth, instead of the rip-and-tear carnivore teeth she's been sporting since her level up in the Library.

I think this is significant.

Re: Deal With It 2014-11-24

I honestly think if Monica had come to Phix asking for advice, Phix would have given her some guidance. But that's not what she did. M came in and began whining about how horrible and unsuited for the job she is. Phix has likely played the role of mentor before Monica and Shelly. She's too good at i...

Re: Deal With It 2014-11-24

Tough love, huh? Quoth the author on Facebook; "Someone who has enough bad decisions to last 10k of Monica's lifetimes who just wants her to do her fucking job." Monica is holding a pity party for herself and Phix is frankly sick of it. Monica is mopey about having broken Kevin's heart. Phix is tri...

Re: Still around 2014-11-21

I wonder... how much does Kevin know about Bud's nature and history? There could be a whole other round of nervous disclosures and trust-building waiting in the wings... and it seems to me that Bud is much more overtly powerful than Monica. Kevin's time with Monica might make him comfortable with t...

I've been where Kevin is at right now. Not to be all melodramatic or anything, but a girl I had been seeing for awhile tell me the she was feeling emotionally distant and wanted to break it off. My initial reaction was to tell her , that yeah, sure. A relationship only works if both parties want to ...

I've gone back and looked at today's page again a few times. It's some of Paul's best work. Even if you knew nothing about Wapsi, or what had just happened, you'd get the essential information. The guy has just suffered some kind of loss and is out wandering in the snow. The girl cares about him and...

That's the look of a man who gave up the best thing he felt he had because he felt it was the right thing to do... and it hurt.
Doing the right thing is hard sometimes. Sometimes it hurts like a sonnofabitch.

I'm a little disappointed in Kevin for taking a conversation that sounds like, "I am going to talk and you don't get to say anything. For God only knows how long, my fucking you has been hate-fucking." with what seems to be an overabundance of calm. That's not being understanding, that's being a pu...

Re: Better Show You 2014-11-10

Tina's letting her hair grow back out . Considering human hair grows an average of six inches per year, so there's been another time skip since we saw her last. Or more accurately, Wapsi hurried to keep up with reality while we weren't looking. I know it's been nearly two years real time, but I'm st...
