“Say, Amber, will you bleach your hair?”
SHIT THAT WON’T WORK NOW WILL IT
You never know until you ask.
No it can’t work because now she knows she has a blond clone….but that would do wonders for the whole secret identity thing…
That would be frustrating to have to die your hair every time you changed into costume.
when did ~~~~~~~~ get hair to dye?
Believe it or not, Kid Flash used to do this — Wally West had red hair, but KF was brunet. Of course, he could put it in/wash it out at superspeed.
Superspeed or not that much dee would kill your hair.
Peter David’s Supergirl wore a blonde wig at some point…
Wonder Girl (from Young Justice, the comic series) wears a black wig to cover up her naturally blonde hair.
:: Nods ::
even at superspeed you’d have to wait a bit for the product to have an effect
Mm mm mm.
For some reason it makes me real sad seeing Dorothy lead Danny out of the room hand-in-hand.
Me too, my eyes shot to it before actually reading the bubbles.
And then Dorothy and Amber had lesbian sex.
If somebody else made that joke already in the past few strips (which is likely), I apologize.
You should never apologize about lesbian sex… unless it involves really ugly people.
real life lesbian sex makes me sad
My friend you just haven’t found good lesbian porn yet.
Try googling “tribbing” and hit the second link.
If somebody draws that though (and if they haven’t already (which is ALSO likely)), then they get…………
Actually I’m not sure what they get, considering we’ll only be able to view it as “clonecest” or something along those lines.
Considering that he didn’t really seem interested in even talking to Amber until she started muttering geeky things during class I’m going to choose to disbelieve Danny here. I think he’s afraid Joe is right, but is just giving himself too little credit.
I think you right, there have been many points where Danny would just rationalize things on the spot even if the rational doesn’t fit the facts. Plus…. isn’t people jumping the gun here, I thought the last we heard about someone reciprocating Danny’s feelings was hypothetical conversation about her fears of Danny being in the closet… and his non-ironic love of ponies.
My thoughts, exactly.
I agree. I think it’s the geek the won him over…
Fail Danny… just fail…
As the Ancient Greeks once said, SHIT JUST GOT REAL.
Ancient Greeks spoke English?
That’s part of the joke there, yes.
I’m a firm believer in the ancient latin phrase: verum fuerit stercus
Danny, I was with you right up until you turned your head melodramatically. It’s impossible to take someone seriously when they pose like a Mary Worth character.
(FAAACE, to stem the tide of FAAACE replies my comments tend to draw)
Turned his HEAAAA- eh, it’s just not worth it.
Thats not worth it but remember you can always give head with your FAAACE.
Damn, and here I thought it was cos Amber was willing to ‘trade pokemons’ with him.
That might be the greatest nerdy sexual euphemism ever created.
Kudos to you.
^_^ Lets hope that he can still ‘trade’ his Cubone for her Skitty then.
Nonono, you mean his Onyx for her Cloyster.
http://www.pokemonelite2000.com/v2dex005.gif <– the greatest penis-lookalike Pokemon there is.
I giggle every time.
But…it evolves from a chick…
Isn’t that Cockbusten?
His metapod for her tangela?
He will have to rename it Penis and have it come with a moveset like this:
Now where did I put my “wah wah” trombone?
That is the best trombone-based website ever.
I clicked it 150 times because danny isn’t thinking about weedle-ing amber’s caterpie.
Don’t you mean Wailording her Skitty or Onixing her Cloyster? Darn it, now I’m making euphemism using Pokemon.
And Danny bounces from righteous to ruined in the span of two strips.
The problem is that this was a one-time deal. He only got one shot at finding a new girl, and now he’ll die alone and unloved. Poor Danny.
NO NO NO!!!
YOU HAD IT AND THEN YOU LOST IT, DANNY!!!!!!
There, there. This could just be a setback. I’m sure it’s all going to be alright. Or it could go worse but I might be wrong about that.
s: Well, I mean, I just want the majority of the cast to be happy in the end, so I guess its pointless a year in, but still D:
I was hoping with his backbone he would get over Dorothy, but instead hes caving to his feelings for her instead of moving on…
I’m sure we’ll see him angry and spinefull (you heard me) when he see’s Joe again, Joe has a way of bringing out the rage with Danny… especially when he’s not wearing pants…. *shudders*
o.e;;; He could at least invest in some BOXERS…good lord…
Heck, I’m a dude and even I think Joe should put on something to cover up Lil Joe. Anyways, here’s hoping Danny regrows his spine and get on with his life.
*nods vehemently* yes yes.
Yep…s: Dannys affections for Dorothy are like his for Sal: pointless infatuation with no where to go.
This comment thread is full of win. I love you all.
“IT’S SO FLUFFY I COULD DIE!”
Aw. That should have appeared under Tristan’s reference to the Lamb of God.
Is this story line feeling a little meta for anyone else?
No. It’s life, in all it’s glory, being what it is-an overall miserable lurching day to day of it getting your hopes up, then Nelson-laughing when everything falls apart.
Don’t expect anything good to happen, and you’ll never be disappointed. If something good actually happenes, enjoy it and then expect something even worse to happen before too long.
and people think I’m nuts when I tell them this same speil I thoroughly follow lol
Those people live whimsical and romantic lives, and thus the harshness of reality sounds of insanity to them. Its’ very sight bludgeons their fragile reality in such a way that it would force them to gaze elsewhere.
This comment is the epitome of pessimism.
“Liked”? Past tense? Geez, Danny. Way to be defeatist.
Okay, okay, yeah, four days is probably a little soon to expect to be able to move on completely. (Though that just makes Dorothy’s “just a girlfriend” comment twice as unhelpful.) But dude, you copped to liking My Little Pony and she found it hot! You can’t just give up like that!
Dorothy’s numbers in the tag cloud just went past Billies…
Yup and she has replaced Billie on the banner!!
Next comic strip should be with Billie and then we will have a banner war!
WHAT? WHAT? I could not believe this, Danny. I thought you were over her and had moved on but after what had transpired here today, “Ruined” is somewhat of a fitting title but maybe I’m wrong and you bounce right back up, you never know.
Well, it was nice of her to apologize. That’s kinda rare in the real world.
Also… Is it now time for Danny to go all emo?
Well I hope he didn’t start drinking because you know what happen the last universe where he start drinking.
An annoying character got killed off?
I support Danny picking up drinking again…. but only after Fazz is introduced to this universe.
If Danny takes up drinking, maybe Billie will get herself a drinking buddy.
I can’t see any possible consequences!
Not until he starts dating Ruth.
yeah then he has to hear nagging every time he drinks.
Only after the threesome is over.
I support Danny picking up drinking again…. but only after Fazz is introduced to this universe
That would be awesome.
Oh, Danno, cut the melodramatics. I had so much respect for the sudden appearance of your spine and then you said “ruined my life” and dramatically head-turned.
And everyone watch in awe and amazement at Danny’s amazing melting spine.
Don’t worry Danno. I still ship you. Harima Mika and Yagiri Seiji are in my top five ships. You’ll find no judgement here.
“Spine, spine, I had it a minute ago, so where the hell did I put it?”
It was swallowed by his dramatic FAAAAAAAAACE.
Awwww…. poor Amber.
Prediction: Danny becomes broken and rebels against everything, steals a motorcycle, and meets Sal, who finds his criminal nature hot.
Unless it was her bike, then she will just kill him.
She’ll admire him for his nerves.
Or she makes him her Robin, like the post-Crisis Jason Todd.
So he will wear a brightly coloured costume and serve as a decoy huh?
Except he’ll have to ride in the sidecar.
This exact thing happened with my and my teenage crushes. Not that they all looked the same, but they all had exactly the same tomboyish, sorta mean personality. The weird thing is two of them were Bi and now have been dating for a year.
That sounds awkward.
That scowl on Danny’s FAAAACE looks . . . rather familiar. ;~)
Do the Mike face
Do the Mike face
Rock the mike face
Kill the Mikey face
That last one made me flash to a certain turtle doing an uncharacteristic scowl.
I think we can all see what has to happen here.
It’s time to have Danny put to sleep.
Fun trick. To lighten the mood pretend both of them are pronouncing it rew-eend stewy griffin style.
As a Brit I automatically read everything in a British accent. How do Americans read/say ‘ruined’? Genuinely curious if there’s a difference, I’m trying to work it out but I sound silly when I try.
It depends on the regional accent, but “roond” is pretty common.
I pronounce it “roo-win’d” but I’m from jersey, so I just assume I’m pronouncing it incorrectly.
roo-ind, northwestern US.
soft “I” sound instead of a hard “E”. Emphasis on the first syllable.
As an Aussie, I pronounce it roo-ind.
Midwestern (which is a fairly flat American accent) is “roo-ind”. Ruin and Rune are not pronounced the same.
This is a disturbingly mature conversation for college freshmen.
For college freshman who just broke up with each other.
“You ruined my life!” is mature?
Well, if what you meant ot say was, “You ruined my life,” rather than, “Pass the corn flakes,” yeah.
To be honest, I find that a weakness of this particular Willis comic. Characters are acting way too mature for their age sometimes, in a narrating-myself kind of way, and they seem to switch behaviors without much consistence. That speaks “only happens in webcomics” to me. The loads and loads of drama in Walky! ws closer to my own teenage experience.’m not wishing for the drama tag back, but I have had difficulty thinking of DoA as real people.
Now I’m not saying that you can’t enjoy a webcomic like say (I’m not gonna name the ones) even though you know that the characters do nothing even passably real, but I do wonder if being, er, older has had an effect on DW’s writing, and what it’d take to avoid DoA becoming one of those “for kids, by adults who think they know kids but it shows” shows.
In my experience, that was part of life then. One moment you are the immature kid, laughing and goofing off, then the next you’re acting more mature than anyone twice your age has a right to be. It’s all part of being thrust into the real world for the first time, facing its problems alone and trying to learn the balance between the serious and the silly.
Let he who has never done this throw the first transformer.
I ready my Unicron kitbash…
Trying to think of a funny way to spin drama into this makes my brain feel… tingly. My hat may be on too tight.
Dorthy says he’ll do it again. So does that mean that Danny isn’t a virgin?
This has actually been discussed in comic. He stated as such when Amber was asking if he might be gay.
I was being sarcastic. >.>”
Danno shouldn’t look like Mike…DOES NOT COMPUTE
ehh, i sort of had the reverse of this. its awkward, worse when you get the death threats.
Words no one ever thought would ever be uttered: Joe was RIGHT.
the clone thing wouldn’t be a problem if danny was going out with amazi-girl. she’s immune to criticism.
ha ha danny is a pathetic sack of shit
even if that was his reason for liking her, he did like her, and should give it a chance. probably wont work out now, but it might
At least he is able to admit it as such. Maybe he can find something else in Amber besides “she looks like my ex”.
Yeah, he’ll find something else in Amber… with his p… nah, too easy of a joke.
My ex’s current boyfriend looks like me.
My ex who calls me all the time. Whose boyfriend is a jackass.
Anyone else notice Dorothy’s hand over her stomach in the last panel?
Preggers. Baby kicked.
Eh. I put my hand over my stomach all the time. It’s a natural resting position for me. Maybe a comfort thing. I dunno. Anyway, I am very much UNpregnant.
That’s especially nice with that icon. Sarah doesn’t have time to be pregnant… She has studying to do!
So he started dating her because she had a similar FAAAAACE. He needs to base his judgements on something a little more substantial, doesn’t he?
As others have said, he may be giving himself too little credit, as the geeky Pokemon thing also seemed to be a factor.
Don’t forget the My Little Pony factor
Seriously. Have a certain set of features you tend to find more attractive than others is normal. Danny MIGHT have a point that he’s trying to replace her, but he might just be attracted to the geeky girls in glasses. In fact, if we’re assuming Danny is anything like his counterpart in the original Walkyverse, we know for a FACT that he is SUPER ATTRACTED to girls in glasses.
I’m inclined to believe Danny is being too hard on himself here–after all, Danny is Danny in any continuity, and Danny tends to be too hard on himself. But who knows, maybe Danny understands something about himself that I don’t; maybe he isn’t into Amber out of some genuine interest, maybe he’s just trying to fill the gaping void in his life that Dorothy left. I don’t think that’s the case, but we’ll see.
Or maybe we won’t see. One of the two.
Keep in mind that Dorothy has a little bit of the geekiness too. It’s likely that he factors this in with the things that remind him of her, but really we could just call it a common interest.
At the end of the day he’s got it all backwards though. Amber isn’t reminiscent of Dorothy any more than my laptop is reminiscent of an old Amiga system. Amber is Dorothy 2.0.
Hey new baner with Dorothy! Sweet!
It’s fun if you consider the logistics of ruining the same life multiple times consecutively.
Step1: cause permanent and irreversible destruction.
It’s more efficient if you just do it, and not stop to worry about the logistics.
Not that I would ever support doing such a thing . . .
Wooooooooooo! Truth comes out! (like a boss. With his Penis. for a nickel.) And that’s just at FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE value!
Good job cramming the memes in. Two million imaginary points for you.
Way to rip the femurs out of all those memes. And their moms.
Step2: Steel underpants.
Well that answers my question about why Danny perused Amber.
Danny is being over dramatic. Saying that just because Amber left, his life is ruined twice now, is a bit much. Its not like Amber said “never talk to me again” and its not like this was a serious relationship. Especially when Amber was being used for rebound purposes.
And Dorothy… she’s gotta shut up. While I still agree with why she ended the relationship with Danny, she no longer is allowed to say ANYTHING about his dating life.
I think you meant pursued…
You are correct but I believe that Danny would have loved to peruse Amber in great detail.
1. Read thoroughly or carefully.
2. Examine carefully or at length.
Your all forgetting one major fact though and that is the fact that in the walkyverse Danny and Billie fell in love and even began to hound her when she got glasses so won’t it be possible for the same thing to happen in the doaverse and looking back on past comments Willis will probably do the opposite of what I typed because he’s realized ticking us off about trivial things weved typed makes for good vewing.
