If this was Menage a 3, that ring would have accidentally been left on, and Maytag would be blaring over the ringternet: "Fuck her all you want!  Just make sure to save some for me!"

Really, both May and Bern seem to be worse off by NOT nomming on the nearest cutie they find.  Which really sucks for them both because they'd probably be happier for each other if they knowingly "cheated" on each other.

Oh, the dramatic irony.

yeah but it's all Bern's fault. Maytag already said she would be into it. Now Bern is finding out how difficult it (fidelity) can be.

I've got a mad mental cackle going on now.  Not because of the comic directly, but because of the other fans reactions to the comic.   

Does this make me a bad person?
Never mind, doesn't matter.  :)


My reaction to the comic itself?  "Tsk, Bernadette you (unintentional) tease!"

That was kind of anticlimactic.
Now what? they're just going to sleep in different places until Bernedette goes back to Maytag?
I don't usually like drama, but that sounds kinda... boring. :/

Don't worry Ronin... Polly's far from out of the story yet.  It's just that, with so many people wanting the story to move faster, I didn't want to waste even a single page on something trivial like sleeping arrangements.  It's probably a little abrupt but we're picking up with them again the next day so I think it should generally read fine.

It's always cool to see people react in different ways to your story.  If everyone were reacting the same way, I think that would be a sign that I failed as a writer.

Come now people.  It's not so cut and dried as that. 

People don't give in to temptation all at once.  It's a waiting game.

Well it would be interesting if Polly joined our main group of adventurers in the end with single thing in mind to win Bern over in long run as a reason.

It would be interesting to see May having a rival who who is not a person who sleeps around but is more similiar to Bern where relationships go.

Maybe, but just maybe May would get jealous about Polly if she tagged along and would court and flirt with Bern slowly, not giving any attention at all to May, and not wanting any silly threesomes deals.

I like the slow pace of current chapter, if flashes character more, but I suppose if I got such pacing in fights then it would be boring.

You know what's so funny about this? Maytag by her own admission would not care if Bern gave in, and a threesome would probably be suggested at some point.

They say history plays first time like a tragedy and second time as a farce. So it it with Bernadette's life story. For a second back there, Bern seemed like she was enjoying that kiss. :-X

Honestly, I'll be really sad if Bernadette does give in.  I'm 100% supportive of people having alternative views of love and relationships, but I'd hate to have Bernadette's particular view portrayed as "wrong" whereas Maytag's idea of polyamory is "right," and seeing Bernadette giving up what she believes in so strongly just seems wrong to me.  (I'm not saying this has happened at all; I think Flipside has done a great job of showing the ups and downs of multiple views without painting any particular one as right or wrong). 

I'm really hoping that Bernadette and Maytag are either able to find a way to work out their issues without either one of them having to really give up the values they hold, or else they will be forced to break up.

Today's page give a nice setting to see if both lovers will be telling each other the truth and not hide anything.

I bet that May will tell Bern about Regina(it would be a surprise if May told her the truth she's attracted/in love with her but it may happen if May is totally honest with Bern), and it will be interesting if Bern will say in return about Polly and that she kissed her.

Bern won't tell may about the kiss.
Will probably start something as a knee jerk reaction. Is now the one keeping the secrets.
Then, may finds out. And then there will be a lesbian orgy. The day will come. Mark my words.

I hope your right. As I said, I'm not a huge fan of the drama, but if it leads to a lesbian orgy, I can always get on board.

So Polly gone with her on this little trip.

Yeah Bern, nothing to talk about :P

Well if May kept cheating over Bern for years as a secret where she actively had sex with interesting people coming from both genders, then one innocent kiss with former love shouldn't be a big deal for Bern to handle right?

But knowing Bern after that promise they made and hearing that May try to keep it in her pants:P hiding this will hurt her more emotionally than what May was feeling after cheating on Bern on constant basis in the past.

Hm... So Bernadette fell in love with Blackbird, ran off when Clairen slept with her, kept the scar (given to her by Blackbird) for years, spent the night at Blackbird's place, got kissed and confessed to by her... and only then admitted she had a girlfriend, and is now travelling with Blackbird after all of that. It doesn't exactly paint a 'knightly' picture, which is what Bern always seems to be aspiring to be.

Maybe the reason Bern is keeping quiet has less to do with how Maytag would react, and more to do with how it makes Bern look to admit all of that stuff.

Of course, keeping all of it a secret just makes it all look worse but... Bern herself has admitted she has a bad habit of keeping things to herself.

Cheer up Bern, you have a sexy tempting companion who want to help you, nothing to worry about 8)

Am I bad that I would prefer Bern choosing Polly over May, and then just stay with May as best friends?

I think Bern probably doesn't mention Blackbird to Maytag, because Maytag knows about Bern's prior feelings to her.

And the last thing Bern wants to hear right now is "Oh, great! Catch up, have a good time, you can sleep with her!"

Because then she could, but knows she wouldn't and Maytag would be like, "Please do ..." and ...

Well, chaos.

With two homosexual women... I doubt pregnancy is even remotely possible XD (oups hadn't read the bonus page XS)

So I guess there might be a little one in suspi :)

Based on the answer he received in the 2nd panel, I think that Crest was meant to say "Did we miss it?" Rather than "Did we make it?"

Well there's magic so I think that problem may be solved if enough money is given.
I wouldn't be surprised, if they can regrow body easily, and seeing how Thin Man magic changes a person even on cell level, then everything is possible, even two women having kids.

Maybe may urges of seeking new interesting people to have sex with would stop completely after getting pregnant...
But then, can you support a family just from being a jester and wannabe bodyguard?

Crest finally got a kiss, and seeing Suspiria thanking Crest like that gives me a feeling that something bad will happen to her soon.

And maybe May will pick up Moby's costume.
