I like the vibe of the conversation between Polly and Bern -- ethereal and chill.  Maybe now we'll find out a lot more about Bern and Clairen.

Yeah, Polly is intoxicated and might say a few things she doesn't intend, but Bern is still sobre... I wonder if there is some magic behind her resistance to alcohol... Maybe some spell was cast on her when she was young and that explains her hatred for sorcerers beyond her devotion to become a knight like her father.

It'll be interesting to see how Polly deals with the news of Clairen's death.  This whole thing is a minefield for information and the like.  She slept with Clairen, knowing she was Bern's girlfriend and now she finds out about Clairen's reunion with Bern and her death... Maybe the Enforcers know something about this Thin Man which Polly will reveal.

And so they arrive at Clairen. While Polly's drunk, no less  ;D Wonder what this will lead to. Interesting how Polly says "Your girlfriend Clairen" ...

Polly's teardrop also makes me think. If teardrop tattoos also represent someone's death in the Flipside world, maybe it's for Clairen.
What if Bern wrongly interpreted that scene where she walked on Polly and Clairen nude in that bed?
What if they landed there due to being drunk but nothing sexual happened.

And then Bern immediately left tha gang without any kind of explenation.

Excuse my bad memory, but did Bern and Clairen had a talk about this in book 0?

If yeas then you can dismiss what I wrote above.

As for Bern drinking habit, well maybe she's a first Thin Man creation who got such a power while loosing her resistance to magic :P

Seriously I find it cute that Bern says "Magic<3", she too feels relaxed, I don't think there's any magic behind it, she just has strong head, I suppose having strong head doesn't make Bern having strong will cause she ends badly with magic where she needs strong willpower.

Yup I hope Bern will tell Polly all about this and the Thin Man, maybe Polly too knows something being some kind of power figure here.
And I'm waiting when Bern will tell Polly about May, I wonder if Bern could open to Polly and tell her all what she gone through with her and about May nature and get an opinion from neutral observant in this case.

It's definitely possible Bern interpreted the scene wrong, though rereading the Maneater chapters it doesn't seem so. Clairen repeatedly apologizes to Bern, with a cryptic "for everything." We didn't know anyone was a lesbian back then so they didn't discuss it further than that. I guess we'll find out.

It does seem alcohol loosens Bern up at least. I'm not sure she would have said "Well you did sleep with her" otherwise. And Polly didn't know Clairen was dead so I wonder who the teardrop is for, unless it's just decoration. ^^

Well so cat is out of the bag, Polly admitted it.

I wonder how this will turn out.

Maybe Polly will say she wanted to sleep with Bern but was happy with getting Clairen instead, then Bern sleeping with Clairen but wanting to sleep with Polly in reality, would make it indirect sex between Polly and Bern situation :P

The place seems pretty dead...

So who think that Polly will give now Bern an old love letter which she didn't have courage to give to Bern and instead gone for Clairen(so she did the same thing Bern did in a way)?

I think that it's more likely a letter from Clairen to Polly, concerning Bern.

Right on the money, Kiran.

I was hoping it would be something different, not sure what to think of today's developments. Guess I'll wait for Bern's reaction first before I decide.

So my guess:
When Maytag hears of this, she will suggest a threesome.

So I nailed it 8)

Also it will be a foursome...
If Bern would bring Polly for fun then May will do the same with Regina.

Let's see which cookie will crumble first, May loved Regina, Bern loved Polly, now Bern learns that Polly too loved her in the past, still do, and they could be together happily.
Now Bern should either mention she has a girlfriend she is loyal too and the case will be closed, or she will want to give a try for this temptation and maybe succumb and go for Polly, but this is Bern and there's no magic involved so doubt it.

Now we need for Regina to tell May she loves her too, and we will have a clear situation.

I suppose I'm the only person who would want to see May being and acting hurt if Bern would cheat on her with someone, like other thing is to tell yourself it won't bother you, but if it would happen being mad about it.

I think the underlying subject in this chapter is temptation for both Maytag and Bern. Will they stay loyal to each other?

Anyone else seeing this as an opportunity for "Snowpatch" to be tempted, and know what Maytag is going through?

Yeah, me too.

Man, I was hoping this wasn't a confession from Polly, for some reason. Oh, well. Awkwardness shall abound, looking forward to seeing how Brion writes Bern out of this one! :)

Well, considering removing a scar probably requires sorcery, Bern could just say "it's because I hate magic."

Seeing how Bern acts, it's rather clear she didn't want to have it removed out of sentiment for her first love, as a reminder...

But I suppose saying that would be quite embarrassing, so I would not be surprised if she told the thing about hating magic excuse.

I think Bern kept it as a reminder of Polly.
What good is dreaming it if you don't actually do it?.

There's only one possible outcome this can culminate to: A huge lesbian orgy.
I approve.

Or of Bern knowing she's not invincible when she's in battle. Keeps her humble.  ;)

This could easily be explained away by her aversion to magic, right?

Will Bern give in fully or not?

Placing bets!

Maybe soon we will get a skip to morning where Bern will awake thinking what she had done...

But I'm bet that she will smack Polly hard next page and will refuse it...

Now I would have a question to Bern who is better kisser, May or Polly :P

Agreed to that!

Polly is just so beautiful and kinda refined, her face in panel 3 of newest update is just so alluring, how can anyone resist that...
Bern self control and love for May must be indeed not from this world :P

But yeah for sure a sad moment when you're first love gets fulfiled in such moment you can't follow it, not without breaking your own moral standards.

It might turn even worse if Bern would tell Polly about May and surprisingly Polly would tell her she slept with her on some occasion in the past ;D
