Stupid romance subplot. Less jaw-jaw, more pew-pew!

heh yeah, the whisper and the doctor plot came dropping out of the sky "So now we're officially in a relationship", I mean wtf... It's obvious that the creator has had no romantic experiences of his own ;).
That being said, I'm still following this on a weekly basis. I'm impressed with the regularity of his updates!

Well, keep in mind Whisper's a very strange person. That's all completely in character if you ask me. ;)-smf

And the doctor's well established as socially awkward and has been crushing on Whisper for a while now. So why is this out of left field again? Seems well within character to me.

The author himself once told on the site that he had been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome (a higher form of autism). What's surprising is that creativity really is uncommon in this kind of disease, but it may explain some of his traits (the way he crafted a semi-automated process to produce the comic pictures and the perfectionism he puts in it, but also the kinda artificial relationships between his characters).

It's like the 3rd time that they've even talked to eachother in the strip itself :). We've seen no relationship develop, it just suddenly was 'there'.

Well, I saw it coming. They're awkward, but the author made them awkward to begin with. It fits. Sure, maybe the author couldn't write a normal relationship, but you know? He was smart enough to avoid having to write one, so props on that.

Ok.. But don't you find it strange that Whisper has no sex-augs?

There's nothing stopping her from having sexual activity of the sorts she's clearly capable of, but it's not the same.
