I don't get what your saying here..

How is Crest being a jerk by refusing unwanted sexual contact that is about to be forced upon HIM? 
How is HE being a jerk by reminding Moby what she'd already rejected as 'Not the way she is'.. {ie. being Rapey}?

I think your seeing what you want to see.. projecting your hang up on his wording, onto the situation instead of any actual character flaw on Crest's part.

Mrs Trunks I respectfully  think you're missing some of the point here...

Remember how insulted Moby was when Crest inferred her actions were a little 'Rapey'? She was clearly affronted that such a seriously criminal intent was attributed to her advances. She said she was only doing this because it's what most guys would accept and wanted anyways, she was no rapist and Never needed to force herself on anyone.

Crest made it clear he needed more in his relationships than just sex... he wants his partner's  love affection and commitment ~ not his words exactly  but inferred.

Moby accepted Crest's declining her advances and respected even if she didn't quite understand his choice.

Now she is actually trying to force sexual contact without consent on someone she calls her friend... if he believes her indignity about being inferred as being a potential rapist... THIS sudden change of her approach, even using magic to force her way on someone (I'd forgotten she was a potent sorceress ~ truly, how Sexy is THAT!? ! :)  ), her current actions are certainly out of character... unless she was lying about how most men willingly accept her advances.

Crest is not telling her how she feels he's reminding her what she professed to him before.

AHHH! Gratifying to know... my faith in Crest's insight into his friends is sustained... I hoped he would realize there must be something outside of all this influencing poor Moby.

I guess.. I'm just a bit more forgiving?  I truly do not wish to see anyone die or be punished if they can admit that their lives have not been lived well, their choices and motivations clearly not in their or anyone else's actual best interested IF they are truly sorry and wish to try to make changes in their lives to make a concerted effort to make amends and become better people instead in their future.

I must believe in repentance and redemption... or what's the point in life?  We ALL have done things in our lives that in hindsight were bad choices, selfish, cruel or just plain thoughtless.  We all need forgiveness for the things we have done to others that we may not even realize... if there is no redemption, no chance of repenting from our misdeeds... if there is no forgiveness ~ then there truly is no hope.  I know I need forgiveness for the things I have done, either knowingly or worse... unwittingly.

My point is.. the Phalanx are just like everyone else..they are not perfect they are not without flaws. 

Moby is a professed Nihilst... that's a pretty bleak way to look at life nothing matters but the now of desire.. no future, no hope.. no true love.  Love is not a thing of only the now... it is an undying desire to put someone else's well being before your own.  We all need love.. lust can trick us with gratification.. but it is hollow in the end.. like a 'drug high' is far too soon over.. it leaves you with nothing to live on.  But love.. is a light in your heart that never fades and warms you in the darkest most hopeless moments.  Moby has nothing like that... so though I find ANY form of rape offensive.. I understand what she might be feeling... its not right but what I think she really needs is someone to love her unreservedly.  She thinks sex will satisfy the gaping hole in her heart.. and she is wrong.. its just all she knows.. cause she has no hope.. and no love.

Sorry... but I'm still not buying that Suspiria is mad, or delusional.. I think she is quite certain and quite correct... but she might have been misled as to whom Qtalda really is and WHY her parents were killed, replaced, duplicated, or just plan mind-screwed as everyone else I'm thinking.. 

Clearly, Melter, was thought to be a minion of Lem... but who is REALLY pulling Lem's strings?

Meh, I'm not so sure... I agree the  Rape-Lev has gone up several notches... but I think Regina is just fine with the guy she has shown interest in... though indeed his {if it even IS actually him right now as he seems under some weird exterior influence right now}... is seriously on the creepy level.  But I think Moby Needs a man like Crest almost as much as he needs a woman like her... he's so repressed and she's so forward... I think they would be good for each other.  Moby's current approach is not necessarily out of character for her... but with their previous 'encounter'... something is clearly off. Moby seems more likely to have more self possession of herself her dignity than to come crawling naked begging to some man's bed... THAT seems out of character for her. 

Whatever influence is affecting the others... it seems it is an imperfect influence as Crest, Regina, and the other Raven -haired girl seem to be unaffected or at least resisting the weirdness influence...

And could some one post a listing of all the character names...?  I'm having trouble remembering all their names... Thx.

Oh yeayh!  Moby was always a hottie... but now she's lonely and needs to be loved... by someone whom she trusts and respects to give her life some joy. I don't think this is simple lust... it IS love after a fashion. I wonder if Crest will yield and see this as it is... a plea help for Real affection from a dear friend of her heart?

Jesus, Regina...O_O

The girl is terrified... how would you feel to wake up in you home town with all the people you know and live around all subtly different seeming? Like they look and sound like all the people, family, friends and lovers you know... but they ALL have a falsetto to their voice and their personalities all seem just characatures of the people you know. You KNOW they are fake and they all keep trying to reassure you ever things fine. While all the people around you you don't know ... the perfect strangers on the street silently, expressionless watch you constantly.

Can you imaging how terrifying that would be.... the question being... are you imagining it, is it all in your head or does that sick sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach real?

...Oh my.

First, THANK YOU so very much for sharing that with me, that's very intriguing again I am ... in awe of someone who  looks at things in so much depth, similar ~ I might add to some of my 'flight's of fancy'!  Thank you, I dearly enjoyed the tale!  :-*

And second, I... am truly sorry, your life has been so lonely.  Loneliness I unfortunately am close companions to as well, for in many ways my religious views after a fashion... but I know Jehovah God is my constant companion...even if I feel myself an unworthy and somewhat disloyal friend on my own part. It's complicated. 

I guess the Apostle Paul put it best, "The good that I wish to do is at all times at war with the wickedness of my own sinful heart.'~ paraphrased.  I have spent my life from my youth always trying to be a what I believed to be a righteous and good person... it is so very much harder then it sounds!  Because more often than one might think, the other people ~ friends, acquaintances, and family~ sometimes do not understand your personal choice to try to live for purity the way Jehovah God's word the Bible directs... when seemingly EVERYONE else in the world seems to get by only serving their own desires with seemingly little if any punishment or sadness for their unrighteous choices.  I have made choices in my life to avoid certain activities ~ dating, parties, athletic performance and even some jobs because such activities lead one to compromise on God's principles about sex before marriage, pursuit of riches before serving God's ministry to preach, and 'Bad' Associations that spoil good habits ~ all has for the most part made my life lonely as well.  Oh do not get me wrong my devotion to purity and righteousness has indeed protected me from many social pitfall... children out of wedlock, STD diseases, addiction to alcohol or drugs and no criminal record of any sort... but still I am lonely.  As the years of my life have unfolded ... it has seemed it is not the things I have done in life that I regret the most... but the things I have not done ~

There pretty brunette 'Jill' {last name redacted for her family's privacy} who I went to both Middle and High School with developed leukemia in school.  I learned she was in the hospital and was the ONLY classmate to come visit.  She had always had such dark pretty hair ~ I embarrassingly did not recognize her in the Hospital.  I was so ashamed.  But I did far worse, latter on.  She was a Caucasian girl and I was a young black American, but her family was pleased I of all her associates came to see her... and I was only an acquaintance mostly.  I went to see her because I heard she was very sick cancer and I was so young.. I'd never knew anyone who had cancer .. I just knew it was deadly and I wanted to cheer her up.  I think that was the first time... in my young life that I cam so close to death and dying.  I said I did far worse later on... well weeks later at the High School 'Homecoming', Jill was there wearing a wig I expect no one else suspected because it was indeed very much similar to her real hair.. but no one there had seen her in the hospital like I had.  She literally dragged me to the dance floor to dance with her.  I was young, and so full of devotion to god's principles about no sex before marriage... I was terrified.  I had never danced with a young woman before... and I had not expected her to be there nor her reaction to be so...  Well any ways I gave in and danced with her... and at some point  when I looked in her eyes and how close she leaned against me... she wanted me to kiss her. I turned my head aside..  I wanted to kiss her but again I knew I shouldn't.

Not a day in my life has gone by that I do not regret not kissing Jill.  The song ended and with it the dance.  We parted with uncomfortable but polite words. Minutes latter ... I realized my mistake and and I spent the rest of the evening trying to find her to give her that kiss.  It occurred to me she might think I would not kiss her because of her sickness or somesuch.. I needed to explain to her why I did not kiss her why I was afraid.  I never saw Jill again.  She never returned to school.  I felt so... so very bad.

20 years later at our second 10 year Reunion... I learned that Jill died... she never graduated high school.  I know, I reasonably was not at fault... BUT my heart feels I failed that pretty young woman... maybe if I had given her a reason to keep living maybe she might have fought harder, I don't know but it has been one my life's greatest regrets~ though sadly not the greatest.   ... Damn I'm tearing up here.

Suffice to say.. I know loneliness... he is a terrible companion.

So please when I say... I sincerely hope you find fulfilling companionship in your life and suffer not from loneliness in your future... know that I mean it from my heart, Mrs Briefs!

Thank you for your tale, thank you for sharing it with me.  I think I am also a bearer of the sword of sorrow... it cuts the bearer worse than anyone else I think...

Nod, Nod... I totally agree... and yeah I know that, "the right time, the wrong me'.  Been there~ done that.

Regina could be good for Crest but I agree he's still waiting on Suspiria... and I'm not convinced she is crazy or that lots of foul magic has NOT been used to frame her to 'seem' crazy.

Flipside Discussion / Re: Chapter 49: Discussion

Yeah... I see your point... and I do agree.  A man too afraid of seeming weak to show his tears when something moves his heart either from grief or from joy is not being truthful or open with the ones he pro-ports to love and care about. It is NOT weakness to show someone how very important they are to you .. and not just that but to tell them often and sincerely how much you love them.

And yeah Regina is referring to the statement a few pages before.. but was that not a different guy?  And if it was not a different guy.. why did the Prison/Fortress change its appearance?  More importantly.. why did the others not realize he changed the number or even more obviously that the Prison/Fortress changed radially in appearance?

I agree... Regina is a sweet and gentle young woman ...clearly seeking true love in her life.  She needs to be showered with affection, held tightly, Kissed tenderly, and Fucked Thoroughly ~ to quiet her fears with arduous, exhausting, love-making! 

But Crest.. I think is the wrong man for that.. he is too private with himself and his emotions.

I believe someone's pants are on fire.

http://flipside.keenspot.com/comic.php?i=7

Well... to keep it in context..read the next three pages.  Considering Crest's view of women we learned from when Moby came on to him so strongly... Maytag was likely the first woman Crest EVER even asked to go out with him... he liked her A LOT!  The fact that he even asked her was testament to this.  Likely his conversation with most women was limited to  "Hi!" "Bye.", "Uhm..no." and "Yes, Thank you."

He actually tried to engage Maytag... and honestly... after his attempt with her... has basically given up seeking deeper relationships with ANY woman!  Even Sapristi she actively sought him out...Crest has not actually shown any interest in really any other woman.. though indeed he is concerned about Sapristi... though Love.. might be somewhat of a stretch.  If the Counsel did in fact conspire to kill her parents Crest wants justice to be done.. but he'd do that for any injustice he discovered.

Actually its kind of sad... Crest is a good guy.. he deserves a good woman... he'd never cheat on her or intentionally do things to make her cry... but it seems women only 'seem' to want men who are like that and ignore the really nice guys.  Though Moby seems to have realized ...after the fact what a real Gem of a man Crest actually is... it was NOT her initial draw to him.

Unless I'm incredibly wrong concerning my English grammar Brion, I think in the fourth panel of the 9/18/17 strip (or 18/9/17 strip depending if you're not in the US), the word bubble should read "You SEEM down", as opposed to "You see down". Maybe she's looking down...?  ;D

"HEY! My EYES are UP HERE!"

But seriously... Moby is a hottie... Crest could do worse.  And I think it was his tenderness, "I'm sorry... I'll be your friend, ok?"... THAT touched her heart.. like none other before.  Cause that is one of Crest's endearing qualities... he cares.  He genuinely cares about people around him.  Yeah, I can relate to him... I'm like that... or at least I try everyday I live to BE like that...caring about those around me..even strangers.  I could so see myself doing what he did ...hugging Moby and telling her he'd be her friend.

Moby would not admit it ...likely even to herself... but that Really touched her heart.  Something no one has done in a long time ~ if ever!  Lust and desire are one thing.. easily sated and distracted... but true affection... that stays with you.  It feels like a little ray of sunlight shining down upon you wherever you go... warming your heart in the most bleak of situations.  It never leaves or abandons you.

Well, not all of it.

My memory is actually very poor, it just works in a weird way.

You know how some people like Moss have weird abilities? Well, I kinda have one too. :o

Essentially, my visual memory is fairly good (I actually memorized the table for an economics page and reproduced it perfectly, along with a map of the regions of China for another test). Things that I see, I can usually recall, and I have the ability to connect things in strange ways forming visual symbolic patterns. My memory of other information types however is terrible, such that despite practicing for days, I cannot recite lines for drama.
 And I have memory of dreams that appear kinda to happen in the future, then I forget them, and then a week before it happens, I get a sense of deja vu. I can sorta compare to such dreams to be like "this is/this is not how it happened before" based on my personal actions and their effect on upcoming events. My long term memory however as a result is bad, very bad, because I have no real grasp of whether anything in my life has happened before. I also cannot remember most of my childhood before age ten. Kinda like my brain somehow got front-loaded, so I have memory that most people shouldn't have, and as a result it ate another part of my brain.  :P

Oh my! That is a wonderfully unique gift! :)  I only have a decent singing voice... people complement me on it all the time, wanna swap? :)
