A bit sudden but I’m glad it looks like we’re getting our conclusion.
“…and when I got done, Marilyn was as dead as a doornail.” Calling it now.
Not done, there. What is brain?
I doubt that.
On a side note
Darien has sad face
the saddest face.
Yeah almost felt bad for Darien in this panel. Even with all the theories I think it’s Occam’s razor taht states the simplest answer is often the correct one, Darien is still likely just a normal college student who’s interested in Darien.
I don’t think MM will be dead when she gets there…will she die at some point soon? it’s very possible.
Occam’s razor rarely applies to comic books. How many comic book characters can you name that are “just a normal guy/girl”? (And I mean ‘name’. Nameless background characters don’t count.)
Still, from what we’ve actually seen of Darien so far I wouldn’t be surprised if he did turn out to be just some guy that was created to introduce a little romantic conflict for Heather. Time will tell.
Hah, i gotta agree with Siarles. Occam’s razor doesn’t apply to comics of any kind. A comic that follows that theory wouldn’t make for a good comic really. That said, am I the only one who feels this relationship is being crammed down our throats? I really…don’t care much for it. I won’t say ‘caved like the ME3 ending writers’, but it just…i dunno. It sorta diminishes the comic for me.
I wouldn’t say diminish so much but this chapter has been a bit of a curve ball from what we’ve come to expect in some of the other chapters. I imagine though after this climatic part of the building romance, it won’t be quite as up front. I imagine we’ll see the story line return to a more normal pattern.
“That said, am I the only one who feels this relationship is being crammed down our throats?”
Funny how it’s only “crammed down one’s throat” when it’s a same-sex relationship.
I actually kind of prefer Damien. Heather doesn’t seem to be particularly bisexual, and seems to be sacrificing herself for Marilyn’s happiness.
This is a comic book, but were this real I would tell her stick with Damien. Sacrificing yourself to such a degree for someone else’s happiness hardly ever ends well.
Gotta agree with the panda. Spinny’s done some clueless things, but she’s never been an outright jerk before. Now she has, and she loses a ton of respect for that.
“seems to be sacrificing herself for marilyn’s happiness”. I don’t think this is what’s happening. I don’t feel she’s sacrificing. I think she’s realizing something about how she feels towards Marilyn. But then again I’m both a relative optimist and someone who wants MM and Spins to work so take this comment for what it’s worth.
“Funny how it’s only “crammed down one’s throat” when it’s a same-sex relationship.”
Lol, wooooooow. If you want to take it there, then by all means go ahead, but I couldn’t care less about that. Plenty of comics do same sex relationships well. Plenty of comics do heterosexual relationships terribly. Any particular reasoning for that comment? Or is it just because I dislike the way this relationship occurred, so it must be because it’s a same sex relationship?
In an attempt to not be a complete instigator, I’ll say that my ‘crammed down the throat’ comment wasn’t a result of me disliking the pairing (I don’t really prefer MM or Damien tbh, either is fine with me), but the pacing. That was my issue, that it feels rushed. If you still think my reasoning is due to it being same sex, then I don’t believe i can persuade you to believe otherwise.
I’m fine with how she came to her decision in this chapter. Was it perfectly done? maybe maybe not but I’d rather have it done fairly quickly than dragged out for 3 issues. Too many mangas/animes have done that and because of it, I lost interest. I understand why you think it was a bit fast paced but it’s just a difference of opinion.
And I can respect that wolf, my comment is more directed towards Sad, who made it seem like my opinion was a result of the current relationship being a same sex relation. Just trying to say that it had nothing to do with my opinion. Doubt they’ll make any attempt to respond, but I can at least say i tried.
…Huh. I see. Okay everyone, say it with me now:
It with me now.
…what? Tee hee.
…U MAD, BRO?
Well so much for a relationship with Darien
“I’m sorry Darian, I can’t be with you.”
“But why Heather?”
“I… I suddenly turned lesbian…”
“…..Seriously? I’ve been trying to get your attention for forever, and you just realized you don’t like men after you FINALLY said yes to me?”
“OH NO! No no no! I like men too…”
“So it’s just me, great, thanks.”
Actually, she didn’t say she was rejecting him. She said that she something to do and methinks that’s confronting MM once and for all. So there’s still a chance she might end up with Darien.
I think she’d have some things to explain to Darien if that was the case. Not saying it’s impossible just saying that she would have to.
Ooohhhh what will happen will it be a happy Yuri filled moment or a soul crushing bitter pill.
whatever happens I hope everything ends, at least okay, and we can get back to Crime fighting.
Well, we still don’t know what it is that Heather realized.
1st possibility: She realized that she likes Marylin just as a friend and cares for her so much, because she’s kinda fragile
2nd possibility: She relized that she cares for her so much and want’s to protect her, BECAUSE she loves her
3rd possiblity: She was not thinking about her feelings right now but has realized that there might be a way to cure Marylin (the whole Dr. U – Dr. Lambha – GCI – thingy)
I really want to know what her expressions in the last two panels are… regret? Determination? Sadness? Anxiety?
I don’t think her decision is. I know how to cure Marilyn. First two or some similar variation seem much more like than the third.
I never said that the 3rd possibility is very likely… but hey, we never know until it happens ^^
Ha-HA! See people!? Good things come to those who wait! …er. Or would that be potentially ironic since we don’t know what will happen when Heather gets to Mecha-Maid/Marilyn…? DUN DUN DUNNN!
I already have the film title for this one.
“There Will Be Tears.
I’m still kind of wondering how it’s gonna turn out. The simple confession with minimal drama at this point would be anti-climatic but having MM die while she’s not there would be disappointing as well.
I’m leaning towards she arrives there to find out that MM has gone after The Pharoah on her own.
To quote the best heroes “i’ve got got a bad feeling about this” im not saying mecha maid will die, but i dont think everything will be good…be it darien trying to steal heather away, or mechamaid saying it was a mistake and she said it because she thought she would die and didnt mean it, thus breaking heathers heart
“Saying it was a mistake” she might say it but I don’t think she herself would believe it.
I’m not sure your using ironic right, croc.
I’m not…? Wouldn’t it be ironic, that, in having waited to tell Marilyn what she ‘needs to tell her’, that Spinny now having decided to, finds it too late since she DID wait? Mayhap I do misunderstand the definition, however.
Note: It would be SAD irony if she is unable to convey whatever her she wants to say, granted, but I thought that would be irony all the same.
But definitions weren’t my forte’ in school, spelling wuz. ::Yes, that was deliberate!:: ; D
Isn’t it ironic?
Don’t you think?
It’s like raiiinnn, on your wedding day!
A steeeeetlight when you’re already laaate
A goodbyyyyye when yer just sayin’ hey
I’m pretty sure that doesn’t count as ironic. Irony is a tricky concept, really, but it’s not really ironic in this case unless she was waiting on Marilyn in some effort to save her the MM takes her own life as too “die on her own terms”(I’ve seen that happen) while spins is coming with a cure.
But don’t quote me on that, irony is a tricky concept.
Irony would be Marilyn telling Heather that she’d changed her mind because she saved Darien while he was walking home alone and they fell in love.
That would also be highly unlik…oh I see what you did there.
Righty-o, Prof. I’ll chalk it up to my inability to understand your description of it. In my personal opinion, I think I had it right, but you disagree. No worries. : D
Irony is one of the most commonly misused words in the english language. Not that I have any room to talk I misuse it as well.
“I need to go. There’s someone I need to do.”
You noticed that too, huh?
Real subtle there, Heather… -_-
Heather: I need to go. There’s someone I need to do.
Darien: Can’t it wait until tomorrow?
Wait, what? O_o
*walks into Marilyn’s candle lit office*
Heather: Marilyn I love yo…what are you doing?
Marilyn naked with blow up spinnerette doll: Ok let’s face it…this isn’t the worst thing you’ve caught me doing.
Heather: Maybe I should come back later.
He can’t be caving. This strip is on a buffer. Plus, they just finished Chapter 11, So whatever happens in this chapter is already set in stone.
And the ending of Mass Effect 3 was complete crap, for a multitude of reasons that you can read about on the internet.
NO, BAD LURKER!
Go troll somewhere else.
So Tiger sees MM and Spinny as his daughters kinda, so what’s his response gonna be when he inevitablely returns right as Spinny frustraitedly yells her love at MM? Anyway, How I figure the rest of the chapter will play out: (after Spinny saves MM from Pharoh, who she ran off to fight on her own.) Heather yells “What were you thinking! You could have gotten hurt!” MM replies something along the lines of it turned out okay / she ended up okay. Spinny yells “It’s not okay! I– I love you!” Next pannel shows tiger had just entered the doorframe. he yells Whhhaaaat?! End of chapter.
Next Chapter begins after everyone had alot of talking. Tiger is not nessisarily okay with the situation, but cool with it. MM and Spinny are trying tenitively to be a couple, but both are really anxious and don’t know exactly what they should do. Enter possiblility of 1 or 2 chapters down the line, they have to choose save MM’s life and cut all attachment to her, or keep her in the team and with Spinny, but knowing she will die quickly.
And now three weeks of filler! :O
Nah, kidding. But I’m so glad this gets resolved now, instead of this focusing on Dr. U for an eternity now. Also, seeing how Heather left Marilyn there makes me sad. I’m actually glad now we didn’t get to see the whole ending of that scene because one panel alone is enough to break my heart.
*jaw drops* Heather, swing to her, swing to her as fast as you can and never let her go
Heather: Marilyn, I love you!
Marilyn: You… you hypocrite! You left me all alone and now you say you love me?! Go away!
Heather: Dammit, Marilyn, don’t make me do this!
Marilyn: I said GO AWAY!
Heather: I didn’t want to have to do this, but… ♫We’re no strangers to looove… You know the rules, and so do I…♪
*just then a crane comes in and hits Spins*
MM: SPins *rushes to her side* I’m sorry Spins I didn’t mean it I was jsut upset please speak to me.
Wolf.Spider stepping out of the crane: NO RICK ROLL!
Mecha Maid: You… you dare hurt her?! *primes missiles* Mecha Maid Missile Massacre!
Sigh that’s what they all say. *activates reflector shields.*
Mecha Maid: A reflector shield… *puts on a light blue wig and red contacts* Oi, Shinji! This guy is an angel who’s trying to kidnap me!
Wolf.Spider: Wait, what? Where did this come fr- *gets eaten by Eva Unit-01*
Mecha Maid: Took you long enough.
Alexis: Hey, it takes time to properly warp reality, especially when bringing something like that to life. Now resurrecting her, that I can do, but it’s gonna cost you.
Now that I think about it. I think I called this early in the chapter. where Heather goes on the date with Darien and it causes her to realize her true feelings for Marilyn.
i agreed then and i’ll agree now
Actually it was Canis who called it.
you know, if mecha maid really does want to pretend it never happened, maybe heather should let her do so. if she doesn’t want her last few months to be all awkward and uncomfortable with her friend, shouldn’t that be her call?
kind of too late now. besides she knows heather, if she really wanted to pretend it didnt happen she would have to be more obvious about it.
Wow…this really sucks for Darien. I feel bad for the guy…
MM looks a bit hurt in that panel by Spinny’s response, but if recall correctly, MM was seemingly/outwardly ok with Spinny the next time she sees her.
I wonder if MM might pull the cliche “Look, back there, I barely survived and was on a large amount of drugs.. I ..may have said somethings I didn’t necessarily mean” kind-of-line, in order to spare Spinny heart-arche for now, and then later down the road, knowing that she herself doesn’t have very long.
I hope it ends up well for them both though!
She already pulled that one, claiming that she was so drugged up, she didn’t remember anything from her hospital stay.
Maybe I’m a bigger digital pervert then I thought but, I kind of miss gigantically breasted Greta Gravity. In an odd kind of way, she’s kind of cute for a ‘full figured’ cartoon girl.
Don’t forget evil. Evil instantly makes a woman hotter.
In that case no.
Really? I found her hot. True, I’ll be terrified if I met her in a dark alley but attracted at the same time.
Then we had very different reactions.
@Thor Angry Joe from team ThatGuyWithTheGlasses made all the points required, and I swore I wouldn’t watch anything about the ending till I had played it… I fail. But atleast I don’t fail as much as trolls, I blame the lack of bridges.
