2%, not 5?
+5% requires a moustache. +10% requires a moustache on a DS. +15% requires both of the above, plus boxers with a fancy-ass clip on tie. Danny only has the tie.
Not a tie! Don’t make me wear a tie! STAY AWAY YOU WINDSOR NAZI!
+2. 1 for each testicle.
2% of what? For example, 2% of 0 is still 0 …
I think in this case we’re talking Maths Level: Cookie Clicker
As in it’s 0%, +2%, which = 2% overall.
Assuming we’re not starting from a negative figure anyway.
Uh oh. A heartwarming moment. That means someone’s getting hit by a truck.
Well, ending with “so, I’m sorry” is a little ominous. But I’ma just enjoy the moment.
I think the “I’m so sorry” is referring to “Oh jeez oh jeez I turned you down for another lady and I just said all this lovey dovey shit about you.” But it turns out he actually said some super awesome things to his lady even though he doesn’t know it yet. Ahhhh if I was Amber I’d be so ready to blurt out the truth.
Er the “And so I’m sorry.” I don’t know that got mixed up. For any homestucks out there, I’d like to reference the “making out with yourself” typo as being similar to this. To any non homestucks, continue on as normal.
I can hear a David Tennant “I’m sorry,” in there, and it just… things….
Damn, now I’m hearing it too TwT
All I’m hearing is Nick Clegg.
Oh God, poor you… We’re here for you.
Oh gods, I hear it too. *all the feels*
“I’m so, so sorry. Now, run!”
-Galasso has built the DoAverse version of CyberMen, which burst out of the back room, ‘upgrading’ Danny’s parents-
Ok, I need to wake up a bit more before writing comments…
Maybe. Or maybe he’s sorry for having been too insecure to be the real Danny in the presence of the real Amber. Maybe he’s known all along that she is Amazi-girl, but prior to this moment, has only been able to muster the courage to express his real feelings for her in the context of what was essentially fantasy role playing.
I think all of this detracts from the main point of this strip, namely that which can be summed up easily in two words: Nailed it.
I hope so, Willie. It would be nice to finally be able to drop the suspension of disbelief.
I agree with this interpretation. Well put.
I read it as “And so I’m sorry that I’ve kept you at arms length, I really do think you’re awesome.”
That’s an interesting possibility. The only reason we had prior was that Amber looked so similar to Dorothy, which Danny didn’t notice until Joe pointed it out. He obviously has a type and maybe Amazi-Girl felt so different from Amber (and thus Dorothy) that he was able to let himself get closer to the masked girl in the cape.
I misread it first as “I’m so sorry” which I saw as apologizing to her for being an idiot lately… “so, I’m sorry” on the other hand… yeah, ominous wording.
Well yeah… we all (except the complete n00bs) know whose comic we’re reading after all.
The truck is probably being driven by Blaine, FYI.
Well this just got weird.
So very WAFFy!
I…Expect him to recant all of this once the parents leave. Apparently I am too used to the evils of David Willis.
It’s okay. He’s hurt the rest of us before too.
Yes. And someday… someday, Willis. I have no idea how, but… someday.
I think Danny might be on the brink of a stunning realization.
Silly deluded Bilfred. This is a David Willis comic. Something terrible is going to happen sooner or later.
It’s not so much a matter of if it will happen, but WHEN.
What if the awful is nothing, but Willis letting us sit and wait for awful, coming up with all the awful ways that will never happen, making awful more awful than he ever could?
What if I’m thinking too hard right now and really just need to be drunk instead?
So …. Dumbing of Age turning into Something Positive ?
The coalescence of the greatest villains in history. Almost as great as that would be frightening…
No S*P is more like:
Milholland: does something awful to characters.
Fans: It could have been worse.
Idiot: Millholland, so help me God, but if you do x I’ll kill you!
Millholland: Ooh! Brilliant idea, thanks!
Fans: STOP GIVING HIM IDEAS YOU MORON!! Damn you, Millholland!!
Er, that should be Milholland
David Willis is incapable of doing any of this because of his eons-long backlog.
well, you know what they say, nothing is scarier (or in this case awful) than what your own mind thinks up
Since we’re expecting bad things now, I wouldn’t put it past Willis to give us a happy moment that stays a happy moment just to mess with us.
Yes yes, but we can hold out hope that something terrible only happens to somebody else.
I vote Faz.
Faz knows you couldn’t resist voting for the Faz. Faz would vote for Faz. Give it up for the newly elected Prom Kin- no… Prom Jester!
I have no doubt about this, but something terrible and a stunning realization are not mutually exclusive.
This is Danny’s best comic. Just. D’awww.
It’s tied with the one where he turned down Billie.
Even if it was for mostly stupid reasons.
He said he wasn’t ready. What’s stupid about that?
Nobody’s ready for Billie.
As Billie sings “What’s ready got to do with it”
If it doesn’t feel right, it doesn’t feel right.
I feel with my left and my right. That is how I don’t run into as many doors anymore. : D
Great gravatar for that.
No. The reasons he gave were stupid, but he was giving them to cover his own ass because he’s sure not gonna admit to Joe that he didn’t want sex.
Whoa, he spontaneously grew sclerae for one panel.
But will it take?
Well, if Ruth’s eyes can suddenly turn green, then why not?
hmmm, it seems character development in DoA is heralded by changing eyes.
DANNY YOU BETTER BE SINCERE!
“Naw I’m just yanking your chain, she’s just a bro” *punches her arm*
This is what will happen next strip, I know it.
YOTOMOE IT HURTS TAKE IT BACK
I DID NOT SEE ANY BUTTS AT SPX, YOUR MAP IS FULL OF LIES!!!1
aww Danno, I almost don’t think you’re a chump ^o^
Danny! You didn’t screw it all up! Yet!
I’m very proud of him.
Wow! Yotomoe, I admire you for giving Danny his due. Because, seriously, the look on Amber’s face . . . Last time I saw that face, it was in a certain other continuum, with a certain other dude being mind-blowingly wonderful to her, to everyone’s surprise. But back to Danny: I now understand him a lot better. And I predict that the oncoming terrible will be coming from his parents. Scared for tomorrow’s panel!!
He’s about to squeal.
Can I hear a D’aaaaaaw?
Yes. But only once.
God dammit, I’m not crying!
Also, I expect this to get weird later, because superhero.
Goddamn it Willis, this better be because you forgot the “00″ at the end.
Danny is not twice as cool as he was before.
Jesus, I meant “now”, not “not”.
Well, a 200% increase would make Danny three times as cool, actually. Remember, he starts at 100%. +200 equals 300.
Actually, we’re talking about the fandom’s *perception* of his coolness, which (by my own, possibly biased estimation) was only about 66.667% of his actual coolness. Shark’s math seems pretty spot-on.
I’m pretty sure Danny was always at like…-100% coolness.
So we’re talking about some absolue coolness scale? How many megaFonzies does that put him at?
Measuring Danny with MegaFonzies is like measuring a pencil in Kilometers.
Danny measures around 1.5 Potsies, at most.
Wow, Danny actually said something without fucking up…let’s see how long that streak lasts.
1 for 1!
Okay, that settles it. No Danning it up jokes for a week, at least. You’re alright in my book kid.
I agree. And you know how hard it is for me to say.
ASSUMING HE DOESN’T ~~~~~ IT UP TOMMOROW.
I wouldn’t give him too much hope. Even in this strip he’s still danning it up, albeit internally.
Also, hooray for exactly 5 minutes spent in GIMP to make this.
I think Danny’s about to be in a love triangle with two women without realising they’re the same girl.
That’s already where he is.
I think that is precisely it. And Amber’s problems mean she can’t just admit it. Their relationship is going to be painful to watch, but I think it’ll turn out alright in the end.
Finally someone recognizes that the problems of their relationship are all on Amber’s head.
About to? This was pretty much inevitable the moment he laid eyes on Amazi-Girl. He’s Silver Age Lois Lane.
He’s going to go back in time and try to brainwash Amazi-girl into loving him?
As a baby.
Right Silver Age Lois was crazier than Roomies Joyce.
And then go back in time to when Amazi-Girl was a kid and start creepily making out with her.
NO. BAD THE CANDYMAN. THAT’S A BAD THE CANDYMAN.
Blame Seanbaby, Superdickery, and DC Comics.
Now with 200% more gorillas!
A degenerate non-Euclidian love triangle.
Danny you have proven yourself worthy of continued life, now stop talking.
QUIT WHILE YOU’RE AHEAD.
I SWEAR TO GOD ALMIGHTY DANNY, IF YOU SAY YOU WERE ACTUALLY TALKING ABOUT AMAZI-GIRL OR SOME SHIT I WILL ENTER THE COMIC AND MURDER YOU WITH A BEAR! I WILL USE A BEAR AS BLUNT INSTRUMENT OF DEATH AND KILL YOU!!!
A bear is too cumbersome to wield. I recommend a tuna it doesn’t leave bruises and it will make Danny smell like tuna. Also good luck truing to enter the interwebs I tried twice ran head first into my screen then had to buy a new screen second time tried plugging an ethernet cord to my brain I ended up damaging my eardrum.
I will complile every comic he’s been in and crush him under them.
All of the kids these days are doing it with alcohol, like taking out the firewall of the body the system – I’m sure the interwebs works the same way, and it actually has a firewall.
Why? She’s the one he’s actually in a relationship with. Would it suck for Amber? Probably, but he doesn’t actually owe Amber anything other than pretending.
BECAUSE HE DIDN’T FUCK UP FOR ONCE AND IF HE DOES IT NOW I’LL RUIN HIM!!!
Daww. +50 Redemption Points.
+ 37 Speed
+2 Yotomoe Points
Awww, man. I want Yoto points! Do I have to multiclass?
You need to be a 3rd Level Danny to get Yoto points. Tho’ the ‘Oblivious’ class ability has uses outside of social situations, like ignoring obviously life threatening wounds…
Danny earned The Power Of Love.
Oh no, Amazi-Girl has been targeted by the Body-Snatcher aliens and they’ve replaced her Danny in Distress!
Competent, meaningful Danny words? We’ve all died and gone to heaven…
I don’t think Danny would be in my heaven.
I don’t think Danny would be in Satan’s hell, so where the hell (heh) would he go?
Purgatory. For his complete averageness in life, he gets to spend eternity in the place that could only be described as “eh, it’s okay I guess.”
Wouldn’t that be limbo?
I support Danny going to limbo.
Nah, Limbo is either an ever-changing infinitely expansive place filled with Slaad, or just really boring. Purgatory is better. More stuff to do, even if it isn’t much.
:: slow clap::
It’s so rewarding to see that expression on Amber in the last panel, considering the day she’s had. That’s the look of someone who’s not only deeply in love but also has reassurance that her man is deserving of that love.
Which is weird, cause it’s Danny
Calling it right now. He just fell in love with Amber and is going to try to break up with Amazi-girl tonight. It’s going to be the most adorable awkward romance ever and we’re going to love it.
“Uh…good. Cuz I’m secretly dating…BATMAN!”
We make a great couple.
That is exactly what I was going to post. What I can’t quite call is Amber’s reaction, but I’m certainly looking forward to it!
I think you’re half right. He has realized his feelings for Amber as of right now… but instead of breaking up with Amazi-Girl he’s going to hide the fact that he pretended Amber was his girlfriend, out of guilt. And of course she’ll know he’s hiding it, which will make her doubt Danny being such a nice guy.
So like what he did for Sal and Billie in It’s Walky?
Oh no Danny. You’re going to do it aren’t you?
YOU CAN DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO IT
I hate Danny less now. ; v ;
I agree. I still want to punch him, hard, in the face, but only two or three times instead of continuously.
DANNY USED ELOQUENCE
Amber was infatuated
Holy crap, a natural 20 on his Charisma check. I knew you had it in ya Danny-boy!
Confirms the crit! Double damage.
seriously. think those other times are natural 1s, where his foot is inserted SO FAR into his mouth? nope, that’s just a base -15 cha. TOUGH TIMES, DANNY.
but can’t nobody stop the nat 20
OH. MY. GOD.
Oh Wow. Nice. Wtg Danny.
And why do I have this feeling of forthcoming doom?
Because of the Willis Roller Coaster, the fastest damn coaster in the known universe, known for it’s breakneck turns, plunging drops to despair, and amazing climbs to the heights of happy?
I dunno. After 2 months it’s still the afternoon on one day. “Fast” isn’t how i’d describe this rollercoaster.
Technically, it’s pretty fast for the characters.
Faster than QC.
“And so I’m sorry….. BUT I’M IN LOVE WITH AMAZI-GIRL!”
“And then his mom bitch slaps him”
Y’know, it seems to me like every individual sentence of Danny’s monologue is terrible. But together, they act like–I don’t know–some kind of octuple negative, and it turns out nice and heartwarming.
Go Danny boy.
Danny has hard time expressing himself, luckily he was able to get the point across this time.
That’s how I feel too? Because, like, the first bit is basically like “yeah, I like her because she’s a lot like Dorothy” which???? BUT ALSO I think the not wanting to take a big step that would mean change was what kept him with Dorothy so long, and so learning that he thinks of Amber as a Big Step actually gives me more faith that this could actually work.
Aww, that’s nice. I love a good romantic moment.
*lovey dovey minute*
GALASSO BRINGS YOUR MEAL DISCS FROM HIS GLORIOUS EMPIRE!
He then throws it at them like frisbies and beheads Danny.
And then absorbs Danny’s power. There can be only one!
AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW. But really though, this is quite moving and surprisingly rings home a little bit.
My God, Danny realized that he had been acting like a jerk! Everyone, hurry and check to see if pigs are flying out of a frozen hell!
This, this is why Danny’s my favorite character. Because I find him so relatable, I’m the one In my group that is a bit of a fool and ‘Dans’ thing up. But when I get a chance to be awesome and romantic or such it is a great feeling. Thank you Willis for allowing me to know that as Danny as I am, I can be a Danny with pride!
My name is Bill but I am a Danny inside too.
On this day, we are all Danny! Except Yotomoe, who can continue to be a Malaya.
I’m so proud of Danny. I dislike him less. But he’s still not close to being liked :3
If it does turn out Danny knew all along, to use an old timey term, you’ll have to eat crow. Hell, you’ll have to eat several crows. Crows will become extinct because you’ll have to eat all of them as penance.
*hopes that Danny knew all along*
I don’t like crows.
Goddammit, Dan- wait. That was actually pretty acceptable. Sorry, reflex.
Danny, you are one suave motherfucker when you want to be.
Suave? He’s not wearing a red bathrobe and drinking scotch just yet.
Meanwhile, inside Amber’s mind: http://i48.tinypic.com/33bemow.gif/
He didn’t blow it!
…Day ain’t over yet.
I wish I had somebody to feel that way about…..imma grab a bottle of whiskey and go be sad now.
Jeezalou! Dannyboy must be as dense as Cobalt if he can’t see WonderGirl sitting right next to him; I mean spandex and a mask throw him off that much? Then again, Clark Kent/Superman was painfully obvious and fooled everybody so why not WonderGirl?
Amber looks as if she’s cranking up the waterworks in the last panel.
Maybe he JUST clued in?
I might not be a Superman fan but there are many, many reasons why no one ever put together that Superman is Clark Kent. One, people usually see Supes as this larger than life kind of person compared to the mild-mannered Clark Kent.
Who could blame her? I mean, THIS after the day she just had?
Spandex can be very distracting.
The feels! They burns us!
Keep going with this, Danny. This should be the point where you look into her eyes and just completely melt, because it’s the moment when you finally come to terms with the fact that the real Amber is who you’ve been in love with all along.
“And I’m so sorry.”
And… I’m Batman.
AND I’M JAVERT
And I’m Batman.
I’m the Doctor.
…wait no I’m not. *hangs head in shame*
And I ma pretty!
Only 2%? I’d say 5, at least.
We’ve had a significant and meaningful moment. Danny is now going to be murdered and his body stuffed into a refrigerator for the poignancy.
Poignancy is what you get when you don’t refrigerate meat, I think.
Wasn’t that pregnancy?
Isn’t that a word for punching people?
Hardly. This isn’t Game of Thrones.
Much to Howard’s disappointment.
Can I use this?
D’awwww. I don’t trust this happy cuteness one bit though, something awful is about to happen any minute now. But still… d’awwww.
He stumbled on the beggining but really made it beautiful next
Everyboy’s freakin out “oh my god, Danny’s almost likable now” I’m just sitting over here like “Yeah, turns out he’s not actually a horrible human being for getting angry once and dating a girl who refuses to tell him who she is”.
Agreed. I think there may be some confusing going on here, between Roomies! Danny, who was a sanctimonious jerk (as Willis, in the ongoing commentary, is happy to remind us), and DoA Danny, who’s awfully clueless but not a jerk. At all.
The characters, or rather how Willis sees them in his mind, has grown and changed over time. This is a rethinking/reevaluation of who Danny is.
Post scriptum (doh):
It sure changes your perspective on characters when you peruse the Walkyverse archives. It certainly makes one think about, was this character always this way and just didn’t or didn’t know how to show it?
I had this experience regarding Mike. The hatefuckfest with Amber that grows into a real, meaningful, loving relationship casts a lot of his actions in IW! in a very different light. Mike has quite possibly the most productive and mature hate I’ve ever seen.
Sorry, I can’t let that pass. Refused to tell him? He asked her not to, because he preferred the fantasy to the reality. He wanted a story romance, not a true love. If, as this strip seems to show, he has realised that the real Amber is much better than his Lois Lane fantasy bullshit, then there’s hope for him yet.
“… realised that the real Amber is much better than his Lois Lane fantasy bullshit…”
Ah! Good point!
Won’t it be interesting when he realizes that his two dream girls are one and the same.
If Amber wants to tell Danny she’s amazi-girl, it’s as simple as untying a damn knot. If she’s suffering from the arrangement that’s literally ALL she has to do.
But before today, that would almost certainly have lead to a breakup, so she would suffer even more. Now (assuming we are interpreting his speech correctly), she can choose whether to break up with him as AG and date him as herself, tell him the truth and date him properly, or even try to two-time him as both personas in whacky sit-com fashion (Willis forbid).
You think we can be so easily manipulated by such adorable displays of earnestness?
Well, you’re right damn it.
AMBER’S FACE IS THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS STRIP I FREAKING WANNA CRY EVERY TIME I LOOK BACK AT IT OH AMBER I LOVE YOU BBY
Easy there, vsophi. We don’t want to get a little too excited….besides, everybody loves Amber….right?
I honestly wasn’t as fond of her in SP! as I am in DoA. Sadly, it was difficult to appreciate her appearances here, as the presence of Danny tainted the majority of them.
This strip, however, sealed the deal for me.
She’s different in SP!, but I’m impressed at how much she grew and evolved as a character. Her DoA incarnation is a based more on that matured concept of who Amber is rather than who she started out as lo these many moons ago.
You got off to a poor start, Danny-boy, but what an epic recovery. The look on Amber’s face says it all. Two thumbs WAY up!
Seconded. Two, no, three. Yeah, THREE thumbs up. Er. On second thought, let’s just stick with two.
So, who shows up? Amber’s dad, or Faz?
AND THEN SUDDENLY AMAZI-GIRL SHOWS UP
AND THEN THE DISEMBODIED HEAD OF COLONEL SANDERS STARTED YELLING “EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS WRONG!”
And it was smashed by Galasso.
Galasso doesn’t allow the competition to troll his business (even for Weird Al’s sake).
And then I bring Galasso in.
Because I’m Batman.
Amazi-Girl: Danny, how could you!
Danny: I’m sorry, AG, it just happened!
Amber: Where did that girl get a color-swapped version of my costume? Long John Silver’s?
Its nice to see Danny express some honest feelings, and get his head out of his own ass. And Amber just looks adorable in panels 3 and 5.
Calling it now
Danny and Blaine are hit by a Truck while fighting.
Aww jeeze. :’]
I recently got home from the wedding of one of my best friends, who had not been in the greatest of relationships previously. Her new husband is completely different from her previous experiences and the look she gave him during the vows is exactly the same as Amber’s. I don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but right now Danny’s dawning realization of what Amber is to him makes him an Amazi-guy.
…yes, I will burn for that, but it wrote itself
Danny has emotionally grown five or ten years in four little panels. So many males are never that honest with themselves or with their mates; those that are, can take years to get to that stage.
In this way it’s a little bit of wish fulfillment. I prefer to take it as art (and I’m sure experience) showing an example for readers to mull over and, inshallah, take to heart.
As someone who has always liked Danny… Suck it, you guys! I was right! Just cuz the boy is bad at the “relationship thing” doesn’t mean he isn’t a good guy trying to do the right thing.
And as a fellow Danny supporter, you got a thumbs up from me.
We believe in you Danny !
And my ax!
I mean, I also root for Danny!
Danny Wilcox, you smooth bastard.
the little tears in the corners of Amber’s eyes…
fuck, now I’m doing it, too.
We need that image as a stand-alone poster.
In whoville they say,, Danny’s. (fill in blank) grew three sizes that day.
Unfortunately it was his appendix that grew three sizes that day, becoming inflamed during a pause in the conversation so awkward that he slowly went into septic shock but was unable to tell anyone.
In the hospital, 8 hours later, no doctor could save him.
Clearly his eyes.
Hot diggity dammit.
This is cute and all, but I’m wondering where this will go from here. A girl feigning a relationship with a guy to get away from her parents which he plays along with while actually dating her alter ego is almost P.G. Wodehouse levels of crazy.
I hope you’re not saying that’s a bad thing Jeeves.
I also take back what I said yesterday about Danny being a fanservice zero.
He still is, if you want to get technical. Hasn’t shown us his nonexistent abs yet.
Fantastic. Now that you said it, it’s going to happen. Lord save us all.
I think it’s a slight +1.5% at best
All this danny hate, waiting for him to danny up the situation and what does he do, he stays honest, and him being honest is pretty sweet.
I don’t really see it happening now, but wouldn’t it be interesting/fucked up if Danny were soon to become a super villain, if only through a tragic series of events that Amber blames herself for.
The Sigh-er. Power–extreme passive aggressiveness.
Oh Danny ya goof c:
If this is the top of the roller coaster, THEN IT CAN ONLY GO DOWNHILL FROM HEEEEEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRREEEEEEEEEE
Okay, I hate to say it, but here’s my prediction:
One or two story beats from now, this foursome will run into Dorthy and her parents. Amber will immediately freak out and decide that Danny only wants to be with her because she looks like Dorthy. Danny will be helpless to point out that this is actually the reason he resisted her for so long since that would mean he would have to admit that he’s “dating” Amazi-girl. (Indeed, the main reason he went after Amazi-girl in the first place was to resist what he felt towards Amber.) Tragic misunderstanding/romantic wackiness ensues.
But she already knows about Dorothy, I swear there was a conversation where he was talking to her and saying ‘I’d like to date you but you look so like my old girlfriend I’d be afraid it was a rebound.’
Danny’s mentioned several times that he doesn’t want to be with Amber because she looks like Dorothy. He’s been pretty obnoxious about it, actually.
D’awwww! Danny, you’re making Amber tear up!
DANGER WILL ROBINSON DANGER!
I’m trying to figure out what Danny thinks he’s saying, whether he thinks he’s making this up out of whole cloth, imagining he were dating Amber, or talking about Amazi-girl. In any of these cases, the fact that Danny thinks he’s lying – or basically, is lying – kind of knocks the wind out of the feel sails.
So you think he’s saying “I’m sorry” to Amber because you believe he’s making up this whole speech on the fly? My take is that I think he’s saying “I’m sorry” because in one brief minute he’s become aware that he’s been a real douche to Amber – and is really, truly sorry for keeping her at arm’s length. And once he does know this, he can never ever un-know it.
I think (and hope) you are right. But it is also possible that he is talking about his feelings for Amazi-Girl, and he is apologising to Amber because he doesn’t really feel that way about her, and knows that she wishes he did.
The thing is, that almost seems worse, since not knowing that this is his girlfriend, to be sincere in this puts him within sniffing distance of an emotional affair. Imagine if they weren’t the same? If this were Pete instead of Clark…?
Mmm, that’s tricky. On the one hand, you could say he’s a whiff away from being a cheater. On the other hand, I have to wonder . . . what would happen if I started courting my husband as a masked superhero and, for some crazy reason, he couldn’t tell it was me? It would be kind of weird if he *didn’t* have feelings for my alter ego. I mean . . . if I’m exactly the same person.. and we have amazing chemistry together… that should continue even if I’m wearing a mask, but wouldn’t be the same if it were someone *else* behind the mask.
Completely unrealistic. Don’t care. Damn you’re good, Willis.
Okay…that was beautiful.
Danny’s getting vey laid tonight.
Ve vould’ve been here sooner, but ve vere vey-laid in Wancouver.
Eeee! Now say “nuclear wessels!”
Danny has unlocked the power of guts!!
Not sure why this is surprising to everyone. Danny, in any universe, has always been a little wishy washy until you back him into a corner and force to him to make a big decision. And when that happens, he’s often demonstrated a good level of intelligence and maturity. Unfortunately, the few times he gets backed into a corner and doesn’t do that tends to be when somebody dies. Hoping that doesn’t play out in this universe too.
Also, anyone else having trouble deciding whether he’s describing Amber or Amazigirl is this strip? Assuming he hasn’t realized the two are the same yet.
Next comic is going to be Danny’s parents being complete A-holes isn’t it.
This is the most beautiful piece of romantic development I’ve seen in a comic for a while. So, this shouldn’t get screwed up, or else I’ll declare “the author is dead” once again .
I see what you’re doing there, Barthes. And I like it!
Somebody refresh my memory, please — Danny broke up with Dorothy; fell for Amazi-Girl; and has now shown some signs of tenderness towards Amber (who we all know is also Amazi-Girl). And Amber (as Amazi-Girl) has shared a few pleasant moments with Danny. But who, if anybody, was *AMBER’S* interest (as Amber, not Amazi-Girl) focused on? If anything sinks the good ship Dannan Damber, that would be the thing that does it.
Danny. It’s pretty obvious.
I assume Amber will have to kill Danny now to fill the tassles prophecy and become a true Sith Lord.
With who is Vergere in this scenario?
Obviously, Vergere is Ethan’s mom.
Duh duh beh duh duh uuuhhhhmmm ssssssssssssssssssssssoooooooooooooooooo cccccccccccccccccuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuttttttttttttttttteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Something I’d like to point out: the strip did not actually end on “and so I’m sorry”. It ended with a shot of Amber’s face reacting to the revelation of Danny’s real feelings regarding her. It also did not end with an ellipsis, indicating that he was not finished speaking and was merely pausing. It seems pretty clear to me that he’s apologizing to her for being an idiot about their relationship, and not the other depressing things you guys are speculating.
I mean, jeez, stop ruining this for me. ; ^ ;
To clarify, I meant that the presence of an ellipsis would “indicat[e] that he was not finished speaking and was merely pausing”. There was not one (there was a period instead), which means that this is not the way he articulated the sentiment.
And just remember. Right now, while all of this is going on… Joe’s dad is still fucking Amber’s mom.
Purgatory is just like hell except you are only there temporarily. Hell is the fire that punishes, Purgatory is the fire that purifies.v
Wow, Danny just levelled up. And I suspect someone will be getting some sexytimes tonight. Maybe there will be fireworks (Johnny Dangerously reference).
he’s cheating on his girlfriend with his girlfriend. .. wat
