Well, this is up early.
Well I’m fairly certain SOMETHING is up
Fan of Invader Zim?
Nawwwww … Poor les
I like how Robin’s face looks in the last panel, as if she’s enjoying the thought of Les and Amber having sexytimes. Absolutely true to character.
God my heart is totally breaking for Amber, and even for Leslie too.
DON’T KICK HER OUT ROBIN I’M BEGGING YOU.
So, I take it that there isn’t going to be any face-punching happening then? Because really, the sight of Amber apologizing for anything to the woman who snuck in on her naked in the shower and kissed her without her consent, which is an utterly heinous act bordering on sexual assault, is just… well, not what I was hoping to see at all, really.
You’d probably need both hands to count the number of times Robin has kissed Amber against her will in Shortpacked!. It’s really only a remarkable occurrence to Leslie.
I do promise at least one punch before the storyline is over, however.
I didn’t actually remember previous instances of Robin kissing Amber. The shower thing just struck me as a Robin crossing a line into “Jesus Christ, call the fucking cops!” territory. I genuinely expected that comic to be followed with Amber’s Righteous Fury. But that didn’t happen, we didn’t get to see any immediate reaction from her at all. Then Leslie pulls a similar disgusting act of non-consensual kiss stealing, and Amber finally gets angry, but only at Mike for enabling them, which only leads to… well, Amber/Mike is a whole other subject.
So, yeah. I really didn’t want to see Amber being apologetic and sad-faced at two people who thought they could just physically use her for their own purposes instead of at least calling them out for that shit. But hooray for promised future face-punchings! I look forward to that.
Provided I, uh, actually remember to keeping read your comic now, without the convenience of linked LJ posts.
Heh. Maybe you weren’t remembering hard enough. Robin/Amber smooch: http://shortpacked.com/comic/book-2-pulls-the-drama-tag/06-the-drama-tag/novelty/
I can see why Amber’d have a problem with Robin. Like the time Robin whored her out(http://shortpacked.com/comic/book-2-pulls-the-drama-tag/06-the-drama-tag/novelty/) or when Robin moved in without Amber’s consent, or when Robin messed up all of Amber’s stuff with that indoor swimming pool.
Isn’t Amber the one who, by definition, raped Ethan?
Utterly heinous? Sexual assault?
You know what Amber’s relationship is based on, right?
… and most of all:
Y’all remember that this here is a COMIC, not some sort of diary of a real person … erm, at least I hope so.
I don’t know if it’s the new site/background or something, but the colors really pop in this strip & it just looks fantastic.
Also, Amber in panel 7 is heartbreaking, & has somehow made me feel upset with Robin, which I did not think was possible.
I am conflicted.
* gives Amber a big hug
that was really mean, leslie is a bad person
Why didn’t they just say “Hey, have you and Mike thought about taking your relationship to the next level and getting your own place?” or something?
Poor sad Amber though.
They’re Robin and someone who wants to be with Robin. Why would they ever take the logical route?
For those who still want Shortpacked! on their Livejournal Friends Page, just add http://syndicated.livejournal.com/shortpackedfeed/ as a friend and you’ll get the comics and blog posts same as always.
Where calendar thing go?!
Me no like ‘um new website, make hard to go from one comic to another…
Used to press date for Monday go there, jump back a week to remember wtf had started stuff, then hit Tuesday. Now all clunky.
Does this mean Mike will move out as well? DRAMA, INDEED.
You think Mike is gonna want to go anyplace? Silly Rabbits…
So Amber gets kicked out for something that isn’t even her fault? *INTENSE FROWN*
*MORE intense frowning when I think that Mike probably wouldn’t want to move with her out of a rent free house*
Is this commenting section new or… am I just retarded? And blind?
And you guys are going to hate me for this but I’m kind of glad Amber is getting kicked out. I mean, she is kind of hateful to Robin but she’s living in the house for free though Robin BOUGHT the house? And had sex in her laundry room… XD
Anyway, you can punch me in the face now.
Yeah it’s new.
Also, gotta agree that Amber had it coming, especially since she doesn’t consider Robin her friend which is douchey since your living in her house free of charge. Then again Robin has tormented and kissed Amber unwillingly a lot so yeah.
robin bought the house and gave it to leslie. at one time robin asked if leslie wanted her (robin) to move out of her (leslie’s) house.
The RSS feed is being wonky for me, the last two updates sent me straight to a ‘page not found’ page!
This is the page it is taking me to, which apparently doesn’t work!
…Which is apparently because you changed the title of the article after publishing it, or something!
Having sex in the laundry room has gotten me kicked out of countless houses, so I definitely relate to this one.
But hey! When did you start adding alt tags to the comic pages?! Has it always been that way? Was I really that oblivious?
I have greatly disliked Leslie for years now and I just realized that this specific comic is the source of my Leslie hate. It’s 2013 and I’m still bitter over this petty act of kicking amber out for such ridiculous reasons. I’ve tried to get over it and like Leslie like everyone else but I just can’t get over this!!!!
