    What hints

    She had a misunderstanding with Paz once and that was it.

    It also plays off the suspicions of the other characters, such as Renard.

    Re: Gunnerkrigg Court

    I've just taken the situation being that the thing with Paz shook her up a bit and made her hyper-sensitive about being perceived as gay/bi, regardless of whether or not she actually is.

    i'm getting the impression that they plowed a metaphysical bridge from deep birmingham into kat's brain

    that's so cool

    The thing is, when a writer makes a major plot/subplot revolve around the newly questioned sexuality of a character, in which is character denies it but all others are unsure, the outcome is always that one big coming out moment.

    As it turns out, she isn't homo- or heterosexual; she's just into birds.

    Much as I hate to say it, wf has a point. (Just an aversion to cliche)

    That is the way most stories end up working out. But who knows, maybe we will end up surprised.
    Do not even look in here it is a goshawful mess that I do not have the time or sanity to deal with.

    it is a complex cliche. If the character insists that they are gay, or the other characters insist that they are not, they ultimately end up to just be going through a phase. In this case, it seems like one of theses cases where she will indeed turn out to be gay. Okay, new convo, why was coyote so adamant about Anne not telling anybody in the forest about his tooth?

    Maybe something about the politics of the forest.

    We've already seen that the tooth is OP as heck, and people might not be happy about hearing that their benevolent god favored a human like that.
    (well, mostly human, anyway)

    A) It is super awesome and they would try to steal it from her.
    or
    B) "Hey, I hear this guy is giving away his super-teeth. I say we start lining up and begging."
    or
    C) "Hey, I heard this guy gave away one of his teeth. That means he is 1% less super-ultra-powerful. I say we attack in his sleep."

    I mean the shadow people have already been abandoned by him. ;__;

    Re: Gunnerkrigg Court

    Yeah, exactly. For now, the shadow people mostly blame the humans for that, but if they ever became really truly disillusioned with their creator-

    holy fuck

    what if that's what's going to happen

    what with the whole shadow 2 plot and oh my god what if

  15. #1115

    Re: Gunnerkrigg Court

    yeah, i wanted to bring that up, but i already came to the conclusion that coyote could not ensure annie's safety in the forest/jungle if they knew that she had gotten a gift from coyote, and wasn't somebody like ysengrin or renardine

    i mean they already effin hate humans and the only thing holding them back is coyote, so it would be hella shit crazy if they found out

    forget just taking the tooth back, we're talking straight up murder time

    aaanyway, it's gonna be difficult to actually use something like that in view of the forest, much less against a killer ghost, with the knowledge that the blade is pretty much the deadliest lightsaber and parley has not been trained in the jedi ways in particular

    Re: Gunnerkrigg Court

    All the arguments that "Kat is gay!" feel a bit iffy, given that she (a) had a boyfriend (to whom she was very much attracted!), and (b) has a long-standing crush on Mr. Eglamore.

    Bi, I'll give you as a 'maybe', but I'm inclined to wait and see.

    For now, all we can say for sure is that she's feeling extremely insecure about her sexuality. (And has been for a while, starting in her next appearance after the Paz Incident.) Does that mean she's actually interested in girls? Maybe, maybe not. But it is hilarious.

    (Figures Zimmy's the only one with her priorities in order, here!)

    I think you're forgeting that this is Gunnerkigg Court: destroyer of expectations.

    Also, I get the feeling that Tom is doing this sub-sub-plot simply because everyone is overanalyzing everything.

    there is a point in every growing webcomic artist's life where they either brush it off and keep going, or just go batshit flying off the hook and make an entire story arc based on how ridiculous the readers are getting

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure Kat isn't gay, what with the whole crush thing on Mr. Jimmy Jims. She just grew up as a tomboy. And now that she's older (and because someone thought she was into girls), she just became self-conscious about it. I mean, there are kids who do things other people would consider embarrassing if they were a bit older. Some kids don't realize that until it's pointed out to them, and if it bothers them, they try to change.

    For Andrew, this story arc was Homestuck.

    Yes. I agree with this thing you just said previously.

    I think that Gamma is leaving in order to let Zimmy go all out, because she'll need it to do whatever she is going to do, presumably wake everyone.
    I really should see about getting a new signature.

    My impression was that everyone except Annie was awake before Zimmy showed up? (Thus Kat's alarm.)

    Otherwise, yeah, that's what I was thinking as well.
