She seems to not realize Marbear is joking, but Marbear has to be joking, since if she wasn't, Momo would've heard it and wouldn't be surprised to hear about it.

I strongly suspect there is a significant portion of the fanbase who now wants to see pictures of Marigold doing just what she is claiming to have done.

I am not sure what is more perfect about this comic, that Marigold used the phrase "just, like, goin' crazy. On my genitals" or that she is a Karkat fangirl, because of course she'd be a Karkat fangirl

(she probably ships John/Karkat and Terezi/Karkat at the same time, in vacillating quadrants

for clarity: those are Homestuck references, because Marigold is wearing a Homestuck shirt

specifically, the shirt references this charming young fellow)

I don't think that people are thinking that Marigold was REALLY telling Angus what she did.

Still, I agree that the way that she shames Angus totally seems out of character, but that's what makes it a) funny and b) hilarious.  Sometimes we're just inspired to do shit that's so "not us" - it's like when you're mad at someone and you actually think of everything you want to say right on the spot, instead of half-an-hour later when you're by yourself.

While this comic was funny, it seemed rather...OOC for Marigold.

I know she's not like Hanners, but I thought she would be kind of reserved/embarrassed about that kind of thing?  I GUESS EVERYTHING I THOUGHT WAS WRONG.  :psyduck:
Hmm ? No it wasnt. Marigold isnt Hanners. And Angus annoyed her by discussing his sex life with her. She simply made a point in return. I wouldnt consider this as an example of "snaps".


[...] I don't quite get Momo's reaction.
I interpret it as: Momo has been in the room, probably connected in order to regenerate her batteries - but was shut off completely on a timer - thus she wouldnt know anything that happened during this time, but objects if Marigold masturbated during it.

Better. If Marigold treated everyone like she treats Momo, she'd be a saint, and also broke.

(Broker. I think Momo's chassis is already putting her on a ramen regimen for some time.)

I can definitely see this as a "I don't care whether you're having sex or not, just don't be all up in my face about it!" sort of feeling (like hearing your parents talk about it *shudder*. You know logically it's going on, but you really (really, really) don't want to know).

This could all be a precursor to something (maybe Mar-bear misses her "science buddy" up in the space station), but that's just speculation.

i suppose it could be a sign of character development; that she's become more confident & less prone to embarrassment in front of her friends.

Marigold!
Bahahahaah!  Finally, another absolutely hilarious strip.  That butt slapping had me rolling with laughter.

Mmmm.  Talking about sex stuff?  I guess my friends and I are far too close.  Once had a 2 our discussion about sex with 3 of my roommates and a roommates girlfriend that involved whether one roommate should try and sleep with someone with massive crazy eyes.  Then it got to involve....genitals, oral, and all kinds of crap.  Needless to say the girlfriend was used as an indirect example by her boyfriend and awkwardness ensued.

Actually, that's the zodiac symbol for Cancer, the crab.  Both my brother, and ironically my daughter - the one who was struck by cancer - are July babies. 

Since the homestuck guy is also clearly cancer-related, it makes sense, but ... it's more general than that!

Oh, I'm not saying Marigold "has" snapped -- she's just my candidate right now for a future snap. That can and probably will change.

I'm also remembering Momo, in her OE chassis when she was more an adorable smartass/Little Mother, once threatened to tell Angus that Marigold was "dehydrated from masturbating heavily" so he would "call emergency services." No, Momo doesn't squick easily.

Yes, that is the Cancer symbol, but no, it's not more general. :P Or at least I really, really doubt it's more general. Marbear is an obsessive fan, and Homestuck collects obsessive fans like iron filings to a huge magnet. Also, the fact that it's grey on black is a giveaway (namely that fans can actually buy a shirt that looks like that).

I also recall Jeph saying on Tumblr that he thought well of Andrew Hussie, the author of said multimedia clusterfuck, but couldn't get into Homestuck himself...so I think this is a quiet tribute.

This is the same girl who is obsessed with yaoi. I doubt she would be so reserved about sexual type things especially when it's a guarantee she looks at hentai and yaoi on a daily basis.

This. Marigold might seem a bit reserved about sex given she's a virgin but I'd bet money she'd be perfectly comfortable with sex and talking about it if she were getting some. Right now she's just mad about it because: 1.) her roommate, whom she nursed feelings for, is getting laid and she isn't, 2.) he's not being very discreet about it. But as for her; out of shape nerd girl with hentai and yaoi obsessions who's never gotten laid, yeah, she'd be CRAZY in bed. I'm not sure if the others should conspire to bring Francis down for a visit or not. Don't want the poor boy to die from snu-snu.

I doubt he'd die.  Cross eyed, might not walk right for days, but he wouldn't die. 

Remember, he's in about the same condition she is...  I tend to think no one would see them for a week or so, and Momo'd have to find somewhere else to sleep.

The most credible strategy would be maneuvering to have him invited as a guest lecturer (or whatever it's called in academia) in advanced theoretical physics at Smif. I think Station has the connections to achieve that, if Hanners asked him.

Momo offered to cook healthy meals for Marigirl and might even get her out for walks, if not actually being a workout partner. Buying Momo's new chassis was an act of pure generosity but she stands to benefit from it. Especially if Momo has the concept of giri.
