As a bit of advice to Crest ~ "Don't believe in the you that believes in someone else, don't even believe in the some one else who believes in you... Believe IN YOURSELF!"

That was totally not super-confusing at all!


{Sigh}.. If I have to explain it it looses is poignacy... like explaining a joke...

"Don't believe in the you that believes in someone else..." ~ Crest: "I'm just a stupid kid from a backwards town! I'm only here because I was tagging along with Maytag and Bernatte!"

"..don't even believe in the some one else who believes in you..." ~ Crest: "You think I'll just open my mouth and magically say something that will fix this? As if I'm Maytag or something?"

"Believe IN YOURSELF!" ~ Crest:  "I'm a tagalong! That's it!"

... I don't think I need to explain the inference his words suggest about his views & feelings of Maytag and Bernadette... and himself.   Its clear he idolizes Maytag and Bernadette and beleives in them.. and that he is isnpried by the fact they trust and believe in him enough to let him follow them in their adventures.  But he clearly does not think he can be like them as decisive, wise, insightful or courageous.

Crest is having a Simon moment... {Tengen Toppa Gurren Laggan}

Also, Crest is a Shyguy.

OKay, fixed everything up to this point (I think.)

As a side note, if you are posting about a mistake, please try to include a page# and a panel#.  If you just say something like "in today's page," when I come back to look at it later, I won't be able to figure out what page you were talking about.

Oh, thank god Crest dropped the anti-magic ball.  Being under her unconscious mind-altering effects to be more like Kin again is probably his best option at this moment.

I dunno. I lust after her. And I really love her.  :-* Sheen isn't something I care about. But the point being, no matter how I feel for her, I love that we can always talk to her. If anything ever happened to that, I would be in hell.

Totally feeling this scene. I've got a girl I kn ow.

It's a friendship but there's also some of what TvTropes mentions as a South African word.

Mamihlapinatapai. "A look shared by two people with each wishing that the other will initiate something that both desire but which neither one wants to start. "

And oh yes, I've asked her already. So much so that I feel like pushing too hard might wreck our friendship. Plus she has a boyfriend, and one day I realized that the reason I admire her is that she's a committed person. Committed to her job (while I buckled under pressure), committed to her guy, committed to her principles. Asking her to give those things up, even if she said yes in a heartbeat, I'd hate myself for doing that to her.

So if people are like "tell her how you feel about her!" I'm like, are you guys retarded? I did already. Besides, I don't ONLY lust after her body, I also care about her happiness and our friendship .
I think this is a good thought, though the "lust" part should be left
out, I believe. I think lust kind of takes the sheen off of what you're posting...

Crest - "What AM I supposed to do?!?"

KISS HER YOU FOOL!  Tell her how you feel about her!

Hmmm...  that seems somewhat out of character for the Phalanx 'leader',  is there some other kind of reality warping going on here?!?
