Dragons. The ultimate turn-on.
I thought that was catfights.
Only for dudes
I was gonna say “and lesbians”, but I have to admit dogfights turn me on more than catfights. How about two woman dragonriders dueling?
wow. Y’know, I was just gonna reply with “I prefer Lamia/Naga to Dragons” But I would pay to watch two female dragonriders dueling.
With motorcycles as a close second
Followed closely by chocolaty brown hair.
And double entendre pizza. Can’t forget that mushroom sausage pizza with extra cheese.
The extra cheese kinda ruined it…
The again pizzas aren’t the best for sexing, I mean their hot, covered in saucy juicies, and are always little rough around the edges… wait…
But… Everyone gets a slice of your pizza. You bring one over and you only get, like, two pieces.
but the key is you get a peice.
Now I have this mental animation running through my head of the DoA cast as the kids from How to Train Your Dragon.
Danny is Hiccup and Amber is Astrid. Joe is Snotlout. Not sure of the rest yet.
Damm- this is going to bug me all night now.
Someone NEEDS to draw that.
I can see Sal as whichever one of Roughnut and Toughnut is the girl, but not Walky as the other one.
“The rest” being the twins (Ruffnut & Tuffnut). They don’t really match to anyone; they have Mike’s aggression but none of his intelligence, Faz’ social obliviousness but none of his creepiness.
Joe as Snotlout is inspired, though.
Dina is Fishlegs.
For Sarah the ultimate turn on seems to be Jacob.
Joyce was right!
Yeah, hard to miss Sarah’s barely disguised lust! This could be interesting.
The car blog Jalopnik has a few references to “dragoning” throughout their site. For them, it all started with one of their former editors striking such a pose behind iirc a Dodge Viper at the New York Auto Show. And hilarious erotica ensued.
One of these days I have got to learn that when I hear about something that I know I will find disturbing my first reaction should not be to go see if it’s real.
If you also think dragons are a turn on, go check out this webcomic review of the Bad Dragon C*ck Sheath (nsfw). Whole new meaning to riding a dragon…
Dated a guy for nearly three years on that interest alone.
Didn’t hurt he also co-modded the mythology chat room at some point.
Sarah’s got dem licky-style eyes.
I mean that’s JACOB. He registers 10 megaJoes on the hotness scale.
I’d hate to see the guy who registers 10 megaDans.
That’s not so much a guy as it is a puddle of Dan’s vomit. In your lap. At church.
Looks like Joyce was right about them getting together.
I saw that, too! Look out, Jacob! It’s going to be the first test of your new friendship with Joe: can you be with Sarah after she’s turned Joe down?
Joe’s ok with other people Joeing women he knows. He’s cool like that.
Ain’t it great when the avatars fit the comments?
And then Dorothy rode Danny’s dragon.
Well it’s only third base, so there was at least some playing with it.
Hopefully, she didn’t make it Angry.
Yes, she wouldn’t like it if she got it angry.
Welp. I learned a little too much about Danny today.
Any Danny information is a bit too much.
Danny, Naked! His pale, narrow ass thrusting up and down!
I’d thank you if this disturbed someone, but it did not.
Oh man, she’s enjoying this, isn’t she?
Boy, Danny is having a rough year. His former lover breaks up with him to concentrate on her future, and then hooks up with a man-child. His new girlfriend breaks up with him despite his assured commitment. And now his best friend since childhood has found a new best friend.
Yet, we’ll somehow find a reason to compare Danny to Hitler when he inevitably has a leap in judgment.
Godwin’s law: “As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1″
But Dragons are for Bros!
Last panel: Overly Attached Ex-Girlfriend.
She secretly broke up with him because she knows Danny will never love her as much as Joe.
I am now convinced that Danny and Joe are Alt JD and Turk
Guy Love, That’s all it is. Guy Love, He’s mine I’m his!
Does that make Joyce Elliot, or Dorothy? Because I could see either of them.
The blonde hair, nerdiness, and willingness to sleep with “JD” suggests Dorothy, but the neurosis, religious upbringing, and hesitance to curse suggest Joyce.
Either way, Sarah is totally Carla.
Would Mike be Cox or the Janitor?
Cox would definitely be Ruth !
I’m going to say the Janitor, JUST so I can follow that up by suggesting that Danny thinks about him bathing in egg salad.
Truth be told, I just can’t picture Mike practicing taxidermy.
Hey, Mike is an expert taxidermist, and gives excellent value for money.
He’ll stuff your mom. For a nickel.
It’s because she’s a prostitute.
So, Sarah can’t tell the difference between one-upmanship and a lotion sale?
The fact that Joe seems to be very mildly offended by this gives me great amusement.
Danny is his. In everything. (Even the things he doesn’t particularly want)
Sarah’s expression makes me think Joyce’s shipping of those two might actually be founded on something other than subtle racism.
Also, SOMEBODY NEEDS TO DRAW THAT.
The dragon riding bros i mean. There’s enough shipping art out there.
That, sir, is an insult to the entire shipping fleet
SCREW THE FLEET, IT’S A DRAGON!
A fleet of dragons! Being drawn by shippers! On, er, a fleet of ships?
Fleet of dragon ships.
Well Jacob is supposed to be a pretty attractive dude! And Sarah is single, so she’s probably thinking “Daaaaaamn that dude is hot!”
I’ve never found him all that attractive (which is funny given my Gravatar). Granted that’s not really surprising seeing as he’s a character in a webcomic.
Yeah, I’ve never found him even noticeable, let alone hot. Personal preferences and all that. When he first appeared in Shortpacked I assumed he was so lusted after because he was the only available straight guy.
She’s not attracted to him because he’s black. She’s attracted to him because he’s Beautifully Brown.
I thought she was attracted to him because he is exquisitely sculpted.
Yeah, I think DAT ASS in any other flavour would be just as delicious =9
Have we ever seen Jacob’s ass or are you just picturing it?
Within DoA, about the closest we come to seeing Jacob’s ass is
Rheinman’s comment reminds me: ETHAN is going to be terribly bummed to see the SS Saracob go sailing by!
As he should be. >:T poo on you Ethan. POO ON YOU.
Language, sir. Language.
I think that was the English dialect known as Canadian.
I don’t think it’s going to make a difference to Ethan. He doesn’t appear to have a crush on Jacob, he’s just responding to him as an attractive guy who’s living in the same room, and Jacob getting a girlfriend isn’t going to change that.
We’re given to understand that he’s pretty finely sculpted. I can totally buy Sarah getting the “…DAMN” face.
There could, in fact, be somebody walking behind Jacob with a fine-looking dessert from the cafeteria, tho
So, it’s not JACOB’S milkshake that …
Nah, I can’t QUITE make the joke work out to punchline. Apologies.
No, Joyce happened to be right, but shipped them for the wrong reasons. Notice no particular interest on Jacob’s part. Remember the complete inability of Joyce to give a reason the two fit.
I think it is a harmless thing and this is an intriguing story-line that explores more of Sarah. And in this case being right for the wrong reasons should detract from Joyce, but at the same time no credit there.
Oh deary me, a boat has been launched.
Danny/Dragon OTP forever.
I’m trying really hard not to make terrible jokes about Dragonborns right now
could be worse, you could start on dragonballs….
… and move on to spaceballs.
That’s not too far off from my OTP, which is Dany/Dragon
At least for today.
I’ve met the dragon before. It was….an experience.
I absolutley want Sarah and Jacob to happen. Someone make me stop wanting Sarah and Jacob to happen before its too late.
Because they’re both black? So very Joyce.
Wow — people have shipped everything moving in this comic, and with Equizzicals’ comment, this is the first conclusion you jump to? So very Joyce’s mother.
Because they haven’t been in many scenes together.
For this fandom, it doesn’t take many at all!
*doesnt take any at all
Next thing you’re gonna ship Amber and Danny cuz they’re both white.
Kids these days.
To be fair, I’ve been shipping Sal/Joyce basically because they are both girls, so…
When I start mentally shipping when people just look at each other I get worried is all.
You’re good, Equuizzicals. I feel 90% certain Willis wants us to ship this one! (OR we’re being set up for an unrequited love scenario to rival the Amber/Danny drama . . . ) But Sarah clearly has eyes for Jacob.
If he wants us to ship it, it’s almost certainly part of a double bluff.
Much like Ethan and Joshua.
. . .
Damn — you may be right!
I assume because David is very much about making sure the readers are suffering along with the characters?
REAL MEN RIDES…oh sorry…wrong meme.
Joyce, right for all the wrong reasons. Sarah, proving Joyce right, For all the right reasons.
That comment wraps things up in such a beautifully succinct package.
Allow me to give you an Internet, good sir.
Adorable awkwardness strikes again!
And Dorothy in panel 4 is so very much Adorable!!!
Dotty…they are riding a dragon…point invalid.
Dorothy’s smile is magnificent in it’s unbridled joy
It’s the cutest she’s been in QUITE a while!
I think Sarah likes what she sees.
Also Dorothy seems way too excited by that. Take notes, Walky.
Who ISN’T excited by dragons?
Dragons are awesome…and a tad over-used.
Yetis and Frost Giants are criminally under-used.
So does Mountain Men and Giant Crabs.
I’ll admit that was a little unexpected
Especially Frost Giants that are actually GIANT!!!
Holy poop, you guys are fast to comment!
It’s just how we roll in this here parts.
We’re quick to the trigger!
We have issues with going off prematurely!!!
You must have trouble in bed.
I guess they were ‘besties eternal’ since the term ‘conjunx endura’ didn’t exist yet back then?
I don’t think that term exists right now.
I’m imaging Jacob’s sub attacking Joe’s cruise-ship at full ramming speed.
You betcha it is.
Dotty, being a main man means that Jacob is pretty much Joe’s wing man…right?
That’s not always true o3o.
ALL ABOARD THE USS Saracob!
THE DRAGON SARACOB!
Watch out, Willis has a U-boat wolf pack roaming the shipping lanes.
My sleepy brain just pictured a corncob only with a bunch of tiny Sarah heads instead of corn kernels.
The horror… 0_o
Danny and Joe riding on a dragon… does this make them MAN-MARRIED?
Yes. Yes it does.
And Jacob already knew that.
Good reference point!
No, they have to dip their fingers in radioactive orange juice…you know, like in Highlander 2.
what is this ‘Highlander 2′ of which you speak… everyone knows there can be only one.
What the fuck is up with that weird stare , its like she’s raven from that’s so raven seeing into the future
Also that dragon is the only thing that makes that picture not weird
Sarah right? Looks like she might not be needing her toys much longer.
Actually, it kinda seems like her regular stare to me. It’s just really rare for her to be looking at someone the same size as her.
Revelation that a man in her life might not be so bad.
Especially since Joyce won’t be making “vroom vroom” noises.
For some reason, I took that as Joe thinking he should have been the one to punch Danny’s V-card.
Dorthy is kinda scary in that last panel. That smile. It looks like a picture that would be attached to a creepypasta…
At first I thought what Dorothy was saying was pretty amusing, then it hit me that she is saying the drawing is still on that fridge to this day and I lost it.
That smile makes me happy =D
Me as well. Walky, make Dorothy happier so I can see this smile more.
a happy Dorothy = a happy…ME!
I like dorothy when she has a worried expression.
Considering how much she smiled at dragons, I don’t think that’ll be a problem.
If your goal was to make me love Danny a little bit than congratulations you’ve succeeded.
Apparently, you and I are among the few to find that actually endearing.
I think it’s enormously endearing. And a little sad, given how rarely they show any affection for each other in present day.
“Riding a dragon” actually would make a great euphemism.
I would not be surprised if it already was.
When I was a teen it (riding the dragon) was a drug euphemism.
I thought dragons were chased for this particular metaphor?
Chased when smoked.
Further refined and injected is riding.
Because smoking opium people are staring into space – and the smoke.
Injecting heroin is riding the dragon.
Chasing the dragon’s been a reference to taking opium and the like since the 1800s or so.
New Main Man?! NEW MAIN MAN?!
BETRAYAL MOST FOUL
JOSEPH ISCARIOT, ARCH-TRAITOR, I CROWN THEE D:<
BETRAYAL! BE-TRAYAL! BETRAYED ME! THIS GAME SUUUUUUCKS!
Sarah looks positively gobsmacked and the perkiest I have ever seen her. I am shipping this one.
Hah….Dorothy is evil and I love it.
How close are dragons to dinosaurs? Once Dina finds out about this, maybe she and Danny will become an item.
Well, dragons are fake lizards and dinosaurs were real birds.
Other way around, Willis. Birds are a kind of dinosaur. And dragons were always more like crocodiles anyway.
I want to see this drawing of which you speak of.
WILLIS, YOU MUST DRAW FOR US THIS DRAGON DRAWING
I second this!
Thirding. I wanna see it. I might even throw in a nickel.
4th, for what it’s worth!
Joyce was shipping Sarah and Jacob before it was cool… and also before they met…
How many of your comments do you usually end up reading? I imagine it probably depends more on the time posted but I figure you can only read so much before you have to do something else.
I tend to read all of them.
Damn, Dotty, you grin any bigger and the top of your head is going to fall off.
Sarah has the look of a lady who’s reconsidering that “I’ve got toys; I’m good” stance. (She and Jacob are both pre-law, right? They were in the other universe.)
And I like how it doesn’t even seem to register on Joyce that Joe doesn’t mean “the Pure” to be a compliment.
Yes oh my god.
Dorothy: That’s WHY I took his virginity!
Sarah looks like she’s interested. Maybe Joyce was right after all.
All of the above rings true more or less.
Joe is possive.
Joyce missed the Pure ref. being derogatory.
Sarah just got smacked with the “Omg, look at him” stick.
And I’m not sure just what is up with Dorothy? Is she trying to stick a wedge between Joe and Jacob, using Danny? And if so, why? She can’t still be harboring feels for Danny. She trying to embarrass Joe? She doesn’t really like Joe all that well, so maybe.
Reminds me of my mother who always managed to tell these type of embarrassing stories of my childhood, to whoever would listen.
I was not amused.
I kinda took it that Dorothy was trying to look out for her ex, is all.
Actually, I take that back. Looking at her face again, it looks like she’s freindly-ribbing on Joe.
Oh yeah, that’s 100% pure glee there. There is no altruism happening here whatsoever.
That is the cutest thing ever, Danny.
Also, slightly possessive and maybe just a touch on the creepy side.
Someone make art of this, quickly
Joe sounds jelly in that last panel.
Dorothy’s maniacal glee in relating this story is a thing of wonder.
So what are some good shipping sites for these characters?
This comment section?
Kinda deserved that I guess but I do like where this is (possibly) going with Sarah, she deserves a break
Guy love, that’s all it is
Guy love he’s mine I’m his
There’s nothing gay about it in our eyes.
JD and Turk would eventually go on to also say they’re a little gay, too. XD
It feels kind of jarring going from Joyce and Joe… arguing? Whatever it is that was yesterday about cursing to this.
Jacob’s good at defusing a situation I guess.
(Also that’s a lot of J-characters in one room.)
You know, I’m liking Joe a little less these days. Just a teeny bit or two.
What, you got something against dragons?
Maybe Dorothy’s gleeful because she knows that Joe’s “dumping” of Danny for a new guy will displace Danny’s feelings about her dumping him?
So…Is this the point where Joyce realizes her best friend isn’t, in fact, a virgin? Or would she have realized that earlier?
It’s been pointed out before within Joyce’s earshot before. http://www.dumbingofage.com/2011/comic/book-1/06-yesterday-was-thursday/frequency/
Not sure if she actually noticed though.
PRE-MARITAL HANKY-PANKY! PRE-MARITAL HANKY-PANKY!
Shit’s goin’ done.
I expect she’ll have a double standard where she’ll accept Dorothy for it but not Joe, but we’ll see.
I think others would have understood it from the conversation they had when Joyce found out Walky would be sleeping over at Dorothy’s. They also had a conversation about lust and all.
But it’s hard to figure what Joyce would have gotten out of the conversations.
I don’t know why but I love this strip so much. It shows a normal college kids life talking with each others and sharing anecdotes. With DoA drama tag is in full gear recently this strip is pretty refreshing.
Because of that, you can relate to the characters and stories.
For long term continuity, overly dramatic and fantastic story lines can go off the rails without skillful writing and direction. It can still work, but on the other hand look at the end run of ER where they kept on trying to top the over blown drama of the previous week. Really, a tank? A helicopter crashing right there?
Here the only fantastic elements are Walky and Ethan being in shape in spite of being geek couch potatoes and Sarah’s nemesii eating at the dorm cafeterias in spite of otherwise acting like trust fund babies. Even that is somewhat in service to the story.
Wow, I don’t think I’ve ever seen Dorothy smile that wide before.
See, Joyce, this is how non-crazy people interact.
She is the best socialized of her home schooling group.
But as down as I’ve been on the character, I admit she is slowly changing. And she is realizing there is stuff to learn.
Hopefully it builds up to the point that one little Mike Gambit sets off cathartic growth.
Dorothy talkin’ a limitless smack.
Little …damned auto correct
The smack is also limitless when it comes to Danny.
Interesting that even Joe talks about Danny having his virginity taken, like he has no agency or control. But he knows Danny very well.
I’ve got a feeling it went something like this, anyway.
Danny’s dream requires no agency – just that being in love was all that matters and he gets carried through.
Even his fantasy of dating superheroine and regular girl and finding out they are one and the same requires little agency. Though he actively avoided the opportunity.
Also, does Willis live on the West Coast or does he stay up til 3 am reading comments?
I though he still was ensconced somewhere near Columbus OH, or was at one time. I still owe him a beer at Origins I think.
My bedtime is 5am.
When he’s feeling rebellious, he clocks out at 5:02.
In every universe, Jacob can’t escape being seen as a sex object.
Sarah gawking is hilarious.
He makes her feel kinda funny, like when she used to climb the rope in gym class.
It’s nice that Jacob recognizes that sometimes it’s OK to sit on the other side of the table.
Ever since Jesus did that one dinner with his pals, everyone in any picture ever always sits on the same side.
Well, Jesus kind of is the ultimate trendsetter.
What, no comments about how Joe = Lobo yet? For shame, commentators. For shame.
Although I suppose by that implication, DANNY was once Lobo, and that simply cannot be. So maybe you all had the right of it after all.
All right now this is getting on my nerves. Somehow, I can see the alt-text, if I do “something”. I’m on an ipad, ios7. And it’s already happened twice, but I can’t figure out how.
If you figure it out, please do say. I am on an iPad as well, and this is the only problem I have with it.
A little googling leads to “tap and hold the image”.
Which also works for android firefox (but that only shows a few lines).
Doesn’t work if the image is also a link.
Prediction time: Next comic, Joe laments how Danny sleeps all day and stays out all night with Amazi-girl, which makes Dorothy have FEELINGS.
Woh-oh-oh, FEELINGS . . .
The dragon is what closed the deal.
Testing testing….. Ms, Dorothy your smile can be seen from space…
It just hit me that Joe and Danny had an argument the last time they appear togheter… an then this…
Danny is going to be really really lonely…
Hmm… Joe and Danny riding a “dragon.” Billie’s high school mascot was a dragon. My mind somehow made the leap that in the drawing Joe and Danny are “riding” Billie in that drawing.
I love that smile on her face in the last two panels as she tells this story.
