SHUT YOUR PIEHOLE RUTH, OF COURSE THEY WERE
In the words of the immortal Pam (from Archer)
“Maybe you can shut your dick-holster.”
Hah. I like Ruth’s style.
I think her mood suddenly changed due to an anal prolapse. **It could happen!** There’s even some pretty sicko sites about it. (Not that I would EVER been seen looking at one of them!!)
Ah, so she CAN be nice, as long as your name isn’t Jennifer Billingsworth.
She’s nicer to girls with smaller chests.
That’s… that’s *true*…
Both me and my grav(Chizuru) notice these sorts of things.
I notice ass…. and I just realize the Willis is more of a breast man than an ass man…..
Willis only notices butts due to catching Jeph’s Butt Disease.
But… I thought Jeph caught the Butts Disease from Willis? So confused.
BUTTS DISEASE MUST BE A GOVERNMENT CONSPIRACY.
Government? naaaah, more like the work of a rogue mad scientist.
They caught it from each other.
So, chest envy?
No. She just realizes that the small chests will soon overcome and wants to get on their good side.
Ruth has learnt that small chests are a rarity, a status symbol if you will.
As well as far better suited for combat.
But big ones are good for interrogation and other uses.
She’s mocking Agatha for being tall, Mary for smelling, and Billie for her usual reasons…
No, Billie is crying cos no one will eat hers.
Delicious, delicious pie.
You can almost smell that creamy tuna already.
You know, I never thought to make pie with seafood before. Though were I to make a seafood pie, I think I’m more feeling a shellfish/sweet corn combo than something savory like that tuna pie.
If you can make fish cakes out of tuna and potato, then it’s not too hard to imagine fish pies.
How about some Paella? It sounds like pie and is full of fishy things.
Billie needs a pie-eating contest.
Regional or national?
No one’s offering strudel in exchange for her pie… Sad times.
::leans back with a mic:: IF YA SMELLLLLLLLLLL….!
You people and your perverse sexual lust over Billie.
Well, she is kinda like the Ms. Fanservice of this webcomic.
I’ll believe that when I see some Tasteful Sideboob from her. Until then, Sal holds the position relatively uncontested.
Idk. We have seen Walkie’s penis.
Walky is Mr. Fanservice, not Ms. Fanservice.
In It’s Walky, if I remember correctly.
Brings a whole new meaning to “It’s Walky!”
No that would be sales when you think k about it
They weren’t out of pie …. it just hit her in the eye ….. that’s amore.
Is it Coconut Cream Pie?
Banana Cucumber perhaps?
Cucumber pie? Is that even exist?
Now that’s what I call convenient.
OMFG, I thought the BilliexRuth pairing was just a joke…
I think there might actually be something here.
Or this is perfectly platonic and I’m just a jerk.
Ruth is TOTALLY hot for Billie.
Replace hot for tsundere.
Not sure if you mean ‘replace the word hot with the word tsundere’ or ‘replace the phrase ‘hot for Billie’ with the phrase ‘hot for tsundere’. Either one works fairly well.
Except that I’m missing a closing ‘.
Ruth is TOTALLY tsundere for tsundere.
Now make out
Not now. Not while someone is watching.
Next, pull her hair and run away.
I like Ruth better in panel 3. Feels more…natural.
Does that also apply to your Sal grav?
Stop acting like that’s not a legitimate reason to cry, Ruth.
Nah, Ruth is still being a b****. You see, we can establish where the entrance/exit is, from where Billie is coming from (since we know she was just talking to Joe outside). The first person she talks to she suggests an umbrella to… but they’re just coming in. Why suggest it, if it weren’t either sarcasm or teasing? The second girl was heading out, making Ruth’s suggestion the entirely unsubtle commentary, “you really need to take a shower, hippie”.
Also, Billie x Ruth OTP 4eva
Calling Mary a hippie is perhaps her worst nightmare.
Hmn. My own dorm at IU had stairs to entrances/exits on both sides in addition to the elevator, and at any rate the entrance would be relative to their dorm’s position in the hall.
Yeah, about that umbrella thing. It could be just me but whenever I bring an umbrella, even though it was cloudy, it never rains.
Yeah, but better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.
situations /objects in/for which the above platitude does or does not apply, GO:
1) shark cage
2) shark repellent
3) shark attractant?
4) a pissed-off shark
6) Gary Oak
7) Unicorn blood
There’s always a mini umbrella in my bag everytime I go out. So I can’t prove this theory is true or not.
I thought you were just glad to see me!
I interpreted it as an extremely subtle “how’s the weather up there?”
This actually kinda makes me think of them as friends. I mean, I’m usually unfailingly polite to people I know casually or not at all. With my friends I’m not afraid to get their attention by saying “Hey, jackass!”
Good evening, penis-wrinkle!
Good night, scrotum-breath.
See ya, skidmarks!
Arrivederci you walking VD factory.
Sayonara, you hairless son of a goat.
Do svidaniya, you festering cum-bucket.
Au revoir, you dried up piece of turd.
Smell ya later, turdburglar!
See you soon, asshat.
Top of the morning, you regurgitated waste of space.
We will meet again, friend whom I appreciate the least.
Such favoritism from Ruth towards Billie.
What is Ruth even doing out there? Just standing in the middle of the hall giving advice to random passers-by? Because…that actually sounds like it could be fun.
I rather think Emerald is right, Ruth is still being Ruth. Incoming needs an umbrella? Outgoing needs a shower?
A bit confusing though re. Billie. Last encounter, she first tripped Billie onto her head, then held the elevator and physically removed people to make room for Billie.
This encounter she snarks her when Billie is obviously not needing that. So what the heck is she doing?
Asking her what’s wrong while covering up her kindness with insults?
ruth is like a little kid with a crush, being nasty like that… i haven’t shipped anything this hard in years
So Ruth has been ‘dipping Billie’s pigtails in the inkwells’ huh?
Billie: “Yes… Yes, they were.”
Cut to Ruth’s lower lip quivering and the pair of them throw theirs arms around each other as they both sob uncontrollably.
Best. Twist. Ever.
If only. If only.
Damn is Ruth really flying the tsundere flag here…
Yeah, I still see this as Ruth being a bully. Sure, there’s more to her character, but plenty of people are nice to most people and just completely terrible to their designated victim.
To the people saying that this is her trying to be friends, I get what you’re saying, I think. My friends and I are dicks to each other almost all the time. We bond that way. But if someone I hadn’t known for more than a week (I think?) saw me crying and greeted me like that, that would not be considered friendly banter. At all. Just plain old mean spirited attacking someone who has been shit on already because you want to hurt them.
…That said, I’m still shipping it.
I kind of get the impression that Ruth just sucks at this whole friendship thing. (Obligatory pony joke]
Agreed. Tbh some stuff about “acting all tsundere” are not the right things to do in real life.
I know this is a fiction, but I think Willis want to approach the story more on the realistic side than the fantastic side this time.
I’m waiting to let her get more limelight than she’s gotten before calling t unrealistic. Some nasty tsunderes in media have been written to have VERY good justification for their nastiness (see: Evangelion) and I’d wait to let Ruth’s backstory come front and center.
Angery sex in 5…..4….3…………..
She isn’t being nice at all you guys, she is still a jerk. Telling somone who is going inside and who will likely stay there all night to take an umbrella is a jerk move, because this is college and she might not have anything to do. Telling someone who is about to go out and cares about hygiene that the showers are now clean is also a dick move, with the goal of making them worry about smelling like butt. She is just being mean in smart, subtle ways. Not everyone is gonna get hurt if some jerk is obviously just trying to make you mad. Making you dickishness seem like advice can do more then calling someone an ugly hippy.
I disagree based solely on her facial expressions.
Damn right they were out of pie. They said you ate it all, Ruth.
I wonder if Willis put up the poll because everyone in it will be having sex simultaneously?
Except for Mike/My mum obviously
Anyway, yes, I ship it, though I hope Billie really isn’t crying
Why’s that obvious? Does your mom not have a nickel?
No, it’s Mike who has the nickel. Which he gives to your mom. And then she has sex with him.
You sure? I’d assumed that it was the moms that had to pay Mike for the privilege, and I haven’t seen anything that definitely contradicts that assumption.
You ship Mike/your mom?
I ship Mike/Cancer, which is ironic because he is the cancer of DoA
That’s what I thought too.
Tsun, tsun, tsundere, gently down the stream~
There are many different kinds of friendship, and there are many different needs…
That is WAY awesome.
Is this what they call “tough love”?
I “ship” Billie and Ruth as many other people do and it’s being at least foreshadowed as something that could happen.
But… why? Ruth has been horribly mean to Billie who really doesn’t deserve how she’s been treated. Even when she seemingly does something nice like when she came over with beers it was more about her needing company than wanting to do something nice.
I seems a little perverse I see mutual antagonism and abuse and think “OMG, WUV!”
It’s because calm, resolved love is either boring or can’t be shown on daytime TV. So we’re left with nothing to grow up on but couples that can’t quite get along, and thus still get to have snappy, lively, non-snuggle-wuggle-lumpkin dialogue with each other. Until suddenly Foe-Yay is suddenly plausible and Ben and Gwen’s preteen sniping is incestual childhood lust. (Whoops.)
Daytime television is ruining our ability to have relationships. Or at least that’s my preferred excuse.
I never understood Ben/Gwen shipping. Leaving aside the fact that they’re cousins, they’re 10 years old. Of course they’re gonna bicker and argue. Take any two kids that age and stick em in a confined space over a summer, they’re gonna bicker and argue.
The ‘let’s practice dancing’ scene probably didn’t help.
Is Billie crying over Joe or Walky?
I think I liked Ruth better when she was dead.
Definitely gonna bang
Oh come on Ruth, do you hate Billy that much? You have clever insults for everybody else, but can’t be bothered for her? At least make the attempt.
There’s plenty of pie to go around.
You know, comparing the body styles of the different characters in this scene, Billie really doesn’t look that thin. I’m not calling her fat, because she’s not. But for someone who was so vain about her appearance at the beginning of the timeline, and who was a cheerleader in her last school…
I really didn’t notice until I realized that all three ‘other’ girls in today’s strip are thinner than Billie.
Ruth never shows her dere side to Billie. Only the tsun side.
Oh for the love of….Ruth, either leave Billie alone or just admit she’s your kismesis and get it on.
Hallway makeouts!? Dis gonna be good!
