  • Cute but sad page

    • D. G.

      Congrats on the v.

  • Klaus

    Poor Spooky is lonely.

  • Madock345

    Well this sucks

  • fujoshifanatic

    If you look up ‘bittersweet,’ this page is what you will find. Oh Spooks, you need to tell the boy–preferably when he’s awake!

    • Klaus

      But it is so much easier when he is asleep.

  • Cman65

    If he was wrong you would of told him to his face and kissed him

  • Shiny Gwilly

    i’m gunna cry
    this is so sweet but hurts so much at the same time
    but hey, i’m also incapable of speaking up in many situations, but for different reasons lol

  • bronakopdin

    an again I wanna hig Spooky so bad >//////<
    Why didn't he say sth right then?!
    But Kyle seemed very determined on his elaboration…

  • Wildecoyote

    The next button doesn’t work on the previous page

    • Takehai

      It usually takes it a little while to fix itself after a page is added. Sometimes you have to reload a couple times to get it to work, and I don’t think it updates until after an hour or so after Alex posts the new page, but I don’t think it’s broken. I think it’s just the software that Alex uses to manage the updates takes a bit to correct itself. At least, I don’t _think_ Alex has to manually update it each time. I could be wrong, but most of his comments on the subject suggests he just has to post the page.

      • Wildecoyote

        Thanks. I’m new on here

    • Welcome to the comic and comments 🙂

      Takehai is correct about the Next button, but when as new page is there will usually be one to post the link in the comments.

  • Aitsuki

    Yup…. Spooky’s super hurt.

  • …. That has been abundantely clear for everyone but Kyle on the last few pages.

  • Jonni

    This is why people should assume less and listen more – but where’s the drama in that?

  • Nate

    No real commentary, other than to say there are some truly lovely subtle expressions on this page. Well done, Julie!

    (Also, I hope Kyle doesn’t drool in his sleep. 😉 )

    • Crispy Druid

      Kyle can drool on my chest as much as he wants. All the more excuse for a post-post-coital-nap shared shower. ^_~

  • Brad Majors

    The perfect page for those who prefer their cuteness overload with a tinge of sorrow.

  • Concerto

    Remember when Mitch told Kyle that Spooky always seems sad. Haha. Not about to change soon clearly.

  • Trisha

    I hope Kyle can make Spooky less sad.

  • Could Kyle be only on the verge of falling asleep? And kind of heard/registered what Spooky admitted?

    • Klaus

      One can always hope.

  • Jason Moon

    I hope Kyle’s mistake isn’t a deal-breaker.

  • Jim Philbrick

    Let Kyle know Spooky what your truth is!

    • Klaus

      Or failing that, let the readers know.

  • Adi Zeller

    I think, more than anything, what Kyle says is more indicative of Kyle and his mental state than it is of Spooky’s. Kyle’s been hurt pretty badly by Duncan, and so he has built a sort of fence around his emotions, to hide his vulnerability. In a sense what he said about Spooky is a part of that fence. Kyle wants to believe what he said (perhaps even has to believe it) because if he let himself be truly vulnerable again – even, and perhaps especially, to a friend like Spooky – and then be let down or disappointed again, the pain would be unbearable. If that is the case we should understand what Kyle said as a way of creating a defensive barrier to keep the really “dangerous” emotions at bay. If what Fluke said to Spooky was in that vein, than Spooky should have paid attention.

    • KatKaleen

      This is why I love this comment section.

    • Geekinator27

      If we run with the idea that Fluke charged Spooks with looking out for Kyle’s defense mechanisms, then I think he did the best he could. What Kyle said hurt him, and being forewarned doesn’t necessarily make it sting any less. This is his closest friend.

  • Stephen Hutchison

    Spooky. Be gentle when you Gibbs-slap the boy. Only about 5-7 times.

  • Sapfo

    Spooky will prov Kyle wrong with time. Sweet loving time ^^

  • D. G.

    I hope Spooky opens up to Kyle about Kyles’ low expectations. It’s also understanding of Spooky to not demand his own sexual satisfaction on this first sexual experience. Spooky is a better match for Kyle than I originally thought. Well done Alex.

  • De’y

    Let him know how you’re feeling Spooky! He’s clearly not gonna figure it out on his own.

  • LimpBiskit

    Methinks the Spookster is in lurve …

  • Klaus

    Vor sol er bleven kold.
    Vi er i vintervold
    og korte dage.
    Men nu er nedgang endt
    og håbet tændt,
    for nu er solen vendt.
    Nu vender lyset og den lange dag tilbage.

    A joyful solstice to all who celebrate it in whatever form.

    • KatKaleen

      Thanks! Have a merry solstice, too!
      I’m not even pagan or anything, I’m just friggin happy that the days are getting longer from now on. Right now I leave the house in total darkness and come home in total darkness. My friends consider it weird that I wished a happy solstice in the group chat. Eh. Whatever.

      • Klaus

        There is nothing specifically pagan about the solstice. “In whatever form” was meant to include Xmas.

        I suppose it is less important further south, but here we had 7½ hours of daylight yesterday, compared to 17½ at midsummer. Here the solstice has been important as far back as we can see.

        • KatKaleen

          I understood what you wrote, kinda (btw. I’m german)

          Vor sol er bleven kold.
          “Weil die Sonne bitterkalt ist”

          Vi er i vintervold
          og korte dage.
          “Weil es Winterwelt ist und kurze Tage”

          Men nu er nedgang endt
          og håbet tændt,
          for nu er solen vendt.
          “Menschen gehen nicht mehr raus oder tanzen, jetzt haben sie ruhige Abende, weil die Sone geht”

          Nu vender lyset og den lange dag tilbage.
          “Kein … Licht wie der lange Tag bringt.”

          Err.. should’ve written that in English. Sorry.

          • Klaus

            Our sun has grown cold
            We are in the power of winter
            And short days
            But now decline has ended
            And hope is ignited
            For now the sun has turned
            Now the light and the long day returns.

          • KatKaleen

            I wasn’t far off. 🙂

    • Happy Solstice!

  • Snorlaxation

    Communication is important. ESPECIALLY in circumstances like these.

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    Here, the question is…..can Kyle hear all of this……or is Spooky just talking to himself?

    • Kyle is asleep.

      • Saxon_Brenton

        No no no. Spooky was using the repertory theater technique of talking out loud to the audience while the other cast members – who are right beside him – can’t hear his comments. Kyle wasn’t asleep (or at worst, was only dozing) but didn’t hear because of genre conventions.

        (I seem to be in a silly mood this morning).

        • davefragments

          Perhaps Spooky just watched DEADPOOL.

          {sans vulgarity}

        • Madock345

          Can’t be, everybody knows that you dim the background lights for a soliloquy.

  • I KNEW IT!

  • davefragments

    Hello Campers,
    I found another version of THE NUTCRACKER to watch and wrapped gifts for most of the day today. One of the gifts was Schrodinger’s Cat.
    And for tonight’s treats — spumoni ice-cream sandwiches made with Pizzelles

    • Doki is finishing icing the sugar cookies. -_- Only the lemon sugar after the orange sugar sets. Granny was supposed to get her new bed today but the dingbats decided that they couldn’t get up our driveway. -_- So I moved all that furniture for nothing. -_- *sigh*

      • davefragments

        Roll the bed or carry it.
        I have had sofas and 100 sq yard of carpet and wooden desks delivered and I have 320 feet of driveway with various states of not-paved

        • Well it was also an adjustable base. They were claiming they tried to get up the hill, but my brother and I won’t believe it until we see the evidence on the driveway.
