I'm finding this whole dynamic between Marbear and Dale rather "cute" - mostly because I can largely relate to the 'fantasy' of having couch time with another geeky girl.  :-D

Cute!

How about this: At some point (could be in the next few weeks, could be in a bit) Marigold and Dale get together, leaving only Marten out of the main group with out a significant other (Hanners doesn't count).

He realizes this, flips, and does something incredibly stupid.

Marigold touched Francis York's crotch by accident and learned that his um, admiration was um, totally sincere. That's my head canon and you're going to respect it.

We're all so happy for them now, but I have this feeling that, like an Albino bat in a completely ahistorical movie about a Russian Princess once said, "This can only end in tears."

(Why? So that the tears of we who ship them can nourish Great Jephulhu. Damn you, Jephulhu!)

This whole date really walks the line between sweet and cringe-worthy. I really hope it ends well just because it would be so painful to watch it go badly!  At this point Dale and Marigold are both so vulnerable that I don't think I could laugh if they got into another misunderstanding.

Now, if the evening devolved into absurdity for some reason unrelated to Dale and Marigold's awkwardness, and instead of snuggling on the sofa they end up doing something on the order of chasing a squirrel around the house or being attacked by a maniac with a Vespa, I could definitely laugh at that.

Right now they strike me as heading for a "let's, um, do this again sometime" and maybe an awkward hug. To be followed by Hanners way-too-eagerly seeking spicy details.

Yup - she is a girl in transition.
Before MoMo Mama Jama couldn't get her to either eat right or clean up after herself.
It took the help of unlooked for friends and combat level hazmat remediation to get things cleaned up and her on the road to joining the outside world.

Remember she is still on her first faltering steps even though she has come this far already.

This whole comic is about healing. Growing. Fulfilling potential.

I think we might have seen a similar reaction if Dale had had access to something to drink right then.

I'm not sure if this is what is confusing people.. but when putting together at least older wooden ships, the very first thing you put down (or 'lay in') is the longer spine that runs the length of the ship... ie the keel.

(Why? So that the tears of we who ship them can nourish Great Jephulhu. Damn you, Jephulhu!)

*hums* Someone holds me safe and warm, horses prance through the silver storm...

One of my fond childhood memories is being driven in a horse sled around the Place Of Revolution. I remember the girl driving had long hair and I thought how beautiful she was. I was only what... five or six? I think it was less than that.

Moments like these in the dark of the night (heh) is when I wonder what could have been, and whether that other life would have been better. Consciously I know it wouldn't, but I suppose the grass is always greener in the hypothetical reality where little dwarves come out every night to take care of it.
