He had done a good job of covering his tracks, but that was to be expected. After all, one does not conspire to ruin a House and murder a queen and then just stand there waving and waiting patiently for retribution.

Figuring out who Tina 1.0 was (there are STILL those notebooks written in shorthand that haven't been deciphered yet) and what she was doing when she was killed?

Finding a hobby has got to be more difficult when it's a demon-cratic process where everybody has to agree on it.

Finding yourself is a lot harder when there are many of you than just the solitary personality. Every time I think I found myself I've moved and left no forwarding address. Some day that will be a sad joke, but today is not that day.

So, Mucho Mocha will be hiring. I wonder if we happen to know of any paranormal college-age kids who might be wanting to find themselves a job to earn a bit? I can imagine Devyn making espresso through sheer willpower, perhaps, without the need of any machinery.

I expect he would be retired by now. Pool boy might strike her fancy, though.

In her 50s... Wow. I know we've had a few tike skips, but we usually only concerned ourselves with the current main characters, not how it affected everyone else...

I'd be curious to see how old the others are... (Shelly, Monica, etc...)

Canonically, Monica is (somewhere around) 35. Shelly is "technically" about the same age (if you count only "earth years"), as is Jacqui. Amanda is about as old as Monica; their parents are probably about five years older than Tina.

Well, I know Monica was supposed to be somewhere around 29, either at the beginning of the comic, or around the time she had that lovely little spike inserted into her head, causing 29 to be the "reset point" whenever she "dies". (Has anyone ever established how long it took, from the time the comic started, to the time the calendar machine was dealt with?)

And I remember that either Tina or Katherine was said to be 36, some time back, when Monica was still the main character of the comic. I also wasn't sure whether Shelly or Monica was the older one (time forest notwithstanding...)

Has anyone determined how much of a time skip we've had, in total? (I seem to recall that there were more than one, however small they may have been, and that they were all during the various Atsali and Castela stories...)

I remember Shelly was confirmed to be in her forties on Facebook a while ago - might’ve been before the time skips.

Remember - Tina was a working therapist in Mexico City (wasn't it?) when she drove into the back of the bus that Monica ran in front of - and Monica was fourteen at the time.

Monica was twenty-nine at the time of the Calendar Machine kerfluffle, when she got phoenix-ized and became effectively immortal, resetting back to that age whenever she "dies" - as when Bud ripped her heart out to convince her that that was true.

One: I don't get that joke, or why that cat is angry about it.

Two: I'm gonna guess that Tina doesn't age because of the demons. I don't remember if that's ever been mentioned in the comic before. So, she can take advantage of that, and keep dating young guys (or girls; I don't know if it's ever been mentioned which way the demons swing) for a long time.
Does it ever occur to anyone else that maybe funhouses would not be a good place to live?

One is a side joke from the fanfic crowd (which I count myself a member of).

Two is a possibility, but as she is mentioning the demons help but don't arrest the progression we can assume that she is aging but gracefully.
