I feel you, Dan. Renée's happiness about bad news uncovers a self-destructive tendancy which is worrying...

Quite true.  As far as "crazy" goes, all my exes did choose to date me, so they might qualify there.  Only one was flat-out malignant, though.

There is a pretty strong tendency for men to label any woman they have a less than pleasant relationship with as a crazy bitch. Any ex-boyfriend is likely an unreliable narrator.

I mean, I can see them not getting along as a couple — Angus wasn’t where he wanted to be career wise and wanted a partner committed to professional self improvement. In a lot of ways, Renee is pretty set professionally. She’s one of the lead bakers at a bakery whose reputation is such that it supplies baked goods to other local businesses. Her next move up would be starting her own bakery and that doesn’t seem to be what she wants.

Also, shit if Renee came in a day when Faye was drunk or Dorian the wrong mood then I can see them fucking her drink for looking at them wrong.

Not to mention, that the further you go back into the archives, the less likely certain things are to being certain canon.  Not to mention, Angus' description of the breakup and aftermath might not be all that reliable.

This isn't particularly relevant to today's comic, but I've been feeling a bit weird about Renee ever since I remembered that she was Angus's toxic ex-girlfriend. (His housemates at the time were probably Marigold and Momo, and Momo is pretty lax with people, which makes her sound like Really Bad News.) Not that people can't change, but I'm not super fond of just sweeping abusive relationships under the rug off-screen. It's probably just an abandoned/forgotten character trait, though, and no longer canon. I should try to not get too hung up on it.

Anyway, this is already looking like a fracture in the making! Dan doesn't seem thrilled by her style of communication, and Renee doesn't seem like she'll deal well with someone so non-chalant. I can sympathize with her; it drives me bonkers when people won't share their whole thought process with me. And when people won't talk about potential future problems. But it can be pretty overwhelming, especially for someone who isn't used to talking like that and doesn't want to. I expect this to be a reoccuring thing in their relationship.

Personally, a long distance exclusive relationship with someone you've been hanging out with for a week is like a big neon sign flashing "please do not do this", but I'm risk adverse. Their New Relationship Energy is in full force and it likely won't last. They'll just be left with lonely beds and texting, and it seems like both of them were having frequent ONS's before this. I wouldn't be surprised if this whole thing implodes because one of them ends up cheating.

I mean, at the time Marigold had an unrequited crush on Angus and Momo’s character arc has been about accepting others who don’t do what she thinks is right so  :psyduck: I’m not sure how toxic Renee was at that time?

I can see Renee thinking "This is too good to be true! Oh no! But wait, here's something that makes it realistic! What a relief!".

I dunno, that one's too easy to turn into a euphemism for masturbation.
She does enjoy that, though.
