[Comic for Wednesday, September 30, 2020]

References: Patty's "past wounds"; Trish's Wiki page (trust us, with her "complicated history", that's the best summary we have); Chris' own romantic interests: (1) (2)


[[Chris, Patty, and Trish continue their walk down the corridor to the MUTEX chamber. Chris is surprised that the "love triangle" between Patty, Dexter, and Trish isn't as scandalous as she expected.]]
Chris: [Disappointed] I can't believe you three are progressing so slowly... AND so peacefully...
Patty: We're all a bit rusty at this whole dating thing, Chris.
Trish: W-we're n-not interested in r-rushing things.

Patty: [Glancing apologetically toward Trish] I'm only just letting myself heal from past wounds. Trish has her own complicated history to work out.
Trish: A-and D-Dex enjoys b-being with b-both of us. It's a w-win-win.

Patty: [Eyeing Chris with mild suspicion] And why should you be living vicariously through us? Haven't you found someone here you're interested in?
Chris: [With a subtle, longing smile] Well, yes... but she's into someone else at the moment.

[[They approach the MUTEX chamber entrance.]]
Chris: [Cheering up] Besides, I end up spectating more than anything else. "Always the bridesmaid" and all that...
[[Patty and Trish stop short as they realize D.C. Smythe blocks the doorway. Both of them seem rather surprised to see the towering anthropomorphic cat in front of them.]]
Smythe: [Glancing over his shoulder at them with a smile] Ah, good evening. We haven't been properly introduced...

  • For those of you who like arbitrary, round-number anniversaries, today marks GPF's 8,000th day of being online. So it's our... Yeah, I guess that's now a thing... 3 days ago
  • So for #NaNoWriMo this year, should I (1) finish the last book I started, (2) start one of the three other competing ideas that have popped in my head in the past year, or (3) give up hopelessly, admitting I'll never find time to do anything I want to do outside of work and GPF? 3 days ago
  • RT @VinceA: @gpfjeff Love that the dimensional travelers are mistaken for furries. I'd do the same... and I ran an anime convention :) 1 month ago
  • Hey @Twitter, this is twice now I've discovered I'm "following" an account I never explicitly followed. I've checked my account history and nothing looks amiss, and I practice strong security protocols so I know I haven't been hacked. Are you sure *YOU* haven't (again)? 1 month ago
  • This. So much this. Sometimes writing for a large cast of characters is like herding ADHD, caffeine-and-sugar-fueled cats. GMing a TTRPG is a perfect analogy, especially when they spend ten sessions on that one room when you just want to get to the end of the dungeon. 2 months ago
