Have to wonder how often this happens in reality. I mean you could start a whole other comic just from the mishaps of One misplaced profile or using the animaniacs good idea/bad idea style of showing how to use them.

I love the character of Scott. I’m just glad that he’s developed so much from Scott 1.0. And I’m looking forward to seeing his own arc and growth over time.

Ted’s probably actually the one who replied with “I know, Scott” in the first panel

Yeah, I like this new version of him so far. I stopped like the old version of Scott after he stopped being a cranky shut-in and was a puppet for the penguin’s world dominance. Kinda lost the edge for me after that.

It’s been two years (three on August 28th) since I lost my Fiancee to suicide, and I have absolutely no idea how to get back into the dating game. I’m still not over her, and I know that I never will be ‘completely’ over her either, but I can’t spend the rest of my life alone either. We both totally stumbled into the relationship without even looking for someone and it transitioned into the happiest two and half years of my life.

I totally get where both Ethan and Scott are coming from though.

Hey man. I have gone through the same thing (November 31st, 2017) after being together for 5 years. All I can say is that therapy helps immensely and finding new hobbies really helped me. I spiraled hard for the first few months and moved back to my parents for a while as being at the condo was not good for me. After stabilizing and moving back, I threw everything out and started fresh and got into some new hobbies to get me out of the house. It helped that I have 2 dogs to keep me company (both were therapy… Read more »

I know I don’t know either of you and I know the following sentiment doesn’t have much to do with the comic, but I’m rooting for the both of you. As of writing this, it looks like at least a combined 21 other people are, too.

I know the words of strangers are not much against life altering tribulations, but I hope there’s at least some small comfort to be had in knowing that there are folks on your side, even if there’s jack-all most of us can do to help.

Something I had to come to terms with after my own loss was that it’s okay to be okay. A lot of folks find out you’re a widower and they treat you with a certain degree of… kid gloves it felt like. I used to find it very suffocating that new people you meet always think they can never measure up to a memory, or that they think you should always be hung up on your deceased lover, but my biggest advice is- It’s okay to move on. It’s okay to be okay. Most folks don’t get where I’m coming… Read more »

I commented on this this morning and tried sharing my own experience on being a widower myself, and tried giving a bit of advice that has helped me and for whatever reason it was deleted. Was honestly looking to see if anything I said could’ve helped or just, anything.

That shit wasn’t easy to open up about or bring up, and whoever’s moderating this, fuck you.

Been reading this comic for what feels like a decade, and made sure to hit up patreon, but I’m fucking done.

Screw you dude. You clearly don’t need my views or patronage.

Did we previously know Scott was with Carlie? I must have missed a strip or two somewhere. Was he with her and hurt the night she died?

We dont know the story, but she was alluded to once before.

It’s been brought up before. But it’s been a while.

During the Thanksgiving comic: https://cad-comic.com/comic/home-cooked-p1/ , Lucas had made mention to Scott that it had been several years. At the time it seemed pretty obvious that he had lost a girlfriend. But this is the first I’ve seen that it was mentioned as being Carlie, specifically.

This also brings up the possibility that Scott wasn’t born a paraplegic, but that it happened due to the attack that killed Carlie.

Steve

That’s what I was wondering, BioYuGi. Explains why they’ve all stayed tight and why he’s so into making gadgets — maybe it’s *his* way of helping and doing something so nobody goes through what he did…

I have absolutely no recollection of anyone named Carlie from the original run… Or any details. Could you elaborate a bit?

Him.
Guest

If I’m not mistaken, Carlie was Ethan’s sister. For reasons known as plot/rebooting, instead of a jackass Rory (who might still exist?) Ethan has a sister by the name of Carlie who got mugged and killed sometime well before E&L had powers.

Oh, right. Completely forgot her name was carlie.

I don’t get the splitscreen part of the joke. I get what app he downloaded, just not what that specific part means.

Andrew

When doing co-op on games where you’re both on the same console, the TV screen would get split in half. One player got the top half and the other got the bottom half. Ethan is assuming that is what they are asking.

Fun fact: In this specific context there usually is even a third option called “Switch” which is a funny little coincidence with the console.

Ethan is being an innocent snowflake and the only context he understands for Top and Bottom is the splitscreen from video games

Indeed. Speaking of, there’s a huge flaw in the CTR remake – the splitscreen is vertical instead of horizontal.

So, did Ethan down load a gay dating App or am I misunderstanding this strip?

No, a BDSM one.

Ethan downloaded Grinder, which is a gay app – because Lucas is gay in this comic. It’s absolutely hilarious.

As for top/bottom – it means which one is pitcher and which one is the catcher, generally. Most gay males are one or the other predominantly.

Is the Fire Emblem poster backwards for copyright purposes?

It’s placed on a window, so it may simply be intended to be viewed from other side of that window

It is backwards as you are looking at it from inside the store outwards. the poster is a window poster facing the outside.

it’s on the window facing the people walking into the store. They are sitting behind the front register.

I interpreted it as on a glass partition facing out into the store.

A quote by C.S.Lewis that I always liked, in that I take it to be a helpful reminder to accept the pain of various heartbreaks with what grace I can manage, and to try to stay sincere both to myself and others; “To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the… Read more »

Strips like this are why I love this version of Scott. The 1.0 Scott was just a douche. This one is a gentle smartass, I really look forward to reading more of his background and how he joined the team. Probably a comic about that floating around somewhere, but still…

My goodness, I am suitably impressed, specifically with Scott. He’s even learned how to laugh, and to smile, and honestly, since those Days of the Penguin. The classic RTFM ‘no tech noob bullshit’ person whose knowledge one respected but you secretly wished you’d never met every time you had to interact with them. That he has come this far since those days, thanks to himself as a character and you as a writer, Tim, is enough to move me very deeply. Thank you for that, Tim. It looks like his own internal-custom Linux OS flavour has gone through its own… Read more »

so…does Ethan game top or bottom screen? i feel he likes to make a anti cheating fort on the bottom with snacks but not positive.

FYI i know his app is grindr but this is still important plot info to know!

ROFL. That moment when you realize you tried to download Tinder, and accidentally signed up for Grinder. Very much surprised pikachu face if you get the wrong one for your preferences.
