So, this was another page that got held up 'cos I was wrestling with the writing. Not the "Let's make sure this comic doesn't appear to endorse molesting children" issues of the previous couple of pages, though. This was actually the return of an old nemesis. See, this page is essentially the first third of NEXT TUESDAY'S page, but after a lot of trying I just couldn't make that much material fit properly into one chunk. So I lobbed the intro off to give the rest room to breathe... only to suddenly be faced with the OPPOSITE problem and not have ENOUGH material. That whole bit with Tabitha being the only remaining Trigger/Layla shipper in the universe was a last minute addition just to there'd be SOME kind of punchline at the end of the page. Yeah, with all the Conventional Wisdom stuff on my plate, I haven't been able to do as many drafts of these comics lately, and it's definitely showing today.

Oh, and speaking of last minute additions, check out today's Voting Incentive. I just couldn't help myself :)

EDIT: Oh hey look! The Voting Incentive/Patreon Gallery is updating again! There's a new page going live every 15 minutes until sometime this evening (assuming you're reading this on Saturday). Why not go get caught up on last year's bonus material?

Very Old Reference
Layla should have stayed for the Relax-O-Drugs. And got some to-go as well.

While Layla is certainly correct, it is also true that Layla is being completely clueless about Tabitha's obvious lack of social awareness, which has been apparent to everyone else for at least 500 pages now. In fact, given said clueless lack of social awareness, Tabitha's next statement might be something to the effect of "Really? Then you're saying you'd be OK with it if I actually was trying to start a relationship with Trigger instead? OK, it would be kind of awkward, but I guess I could try that if that's what you prefer...." (not meant sarcastically but rather in continuing to misunderstand Layla's objection) At which time Layla reaches a temperature that begins to melt through the deck plating...

ship, ship, ship, ship.....
Layla: "Yes I'm still mad at you!! You've been hitting on ME in every vote incentive we've been in for 5 years now and here I find you two-timing with Trigger! Even after I wore all those extremely embarrassing costumes just for you!"

Or is Layla subtly implying in her last statement that real-world shippers are also "clueless"? Just for that, Layla, I'm totally shipping you with Frank now. Hey, it could happen: He's rich. Layla+Frank 4ever!

There's something familiar about that vote incentive ;)

I can't see Alphonse-Mario actually playing any game that involves actually attacking something scary, he would just hide in the corner of the first screen on level one until Princess Bridget-Daisy showed up to stomp on the scary monsters for him.
