She probably hasn’t even been in that chassis for 24 hours of coming time. We’ll have to see if it changes her once the “high” has worn off.

Yeah.

As ZoeB says: Growth. Healing.

Also: Weird sartorial hjinks with a sprinkling of Schadenfreude. In moderation. Hehehehehe ...

Oh this is unfair.  My wife is dragging me into the woods for the next week where I have been informed we shall have no connectivity at all.  Guess I'll see the fun Marigold has with her next weekend.

I liked May from page 2 row 3 frame 1. That's not right. I liked May from page 9 row 3. That's not right either. I liked May from page 13 row 2.
I had a friend much like May. Not only in the sense of having little self-awareness despite being perfectly lucid about others' interactions, only half of which I can claim about myself, but also about the blatant disregard of tacit boundaries. Before we met I'd always vaguely feel violated. When we often interacted, I quickly learned a lot about what my boundaries were, which made it possible to assert those boundaries generally. We grew apart, and that vague malaise is returning.
Now, leading panel 3 with a simple "sorry" would have vastly changed the tone of this strip, but May is still a work in progress.
Just the word "sorry" can turn any conversation around. I know far too many people who say something rude, get called on it, and instead of apologizing, cling desperately to the opinion that what they did was okay rather than admit any wrongdoing.
Have you considered the fact that most persons' actions are at least somewhat thought out, and that explaining the reason for one's actions is an appropriate response? That's exactly what May did. To legitimately believe May was `twisting' the conversation, you'd have to exclude the possibility that she meant it the way she said she meant it.

Some persons find it very difficult to say something they don't mean, and it's difficult to feel sorry about an action that was reasonable given the available data when the decision was made.

And in the last panel, the background turns dark...
I can hardly wait for the next strip. Which, were I Jeph, would be a Patreon exclusive.

...
What I can't understand is how Momo considers May a friend. Maybe it's putting a bold face on necessity -- since they will be in each other's company a lot it's best to keep things civil. Or it could just be that Momo has more empathy than I do.

I think it’s because Momo sees Fay as someone who has overall increased Marigold’s happiness by encouraging Dale to go for it, helping with the Emily-gate, and offering vulgar pep talks to Marigold. Momo does have a lot of empathy but I think she’s been very clear she’s ride or die FOR MARIGOLD. Because of those kindnesses, she’s willing to tolerate a lot.

Under a spoiler tag.

Thankfully, it didn't load on my phone.

Ah. My boggle was that the term "ahego" is unknown to me. "O face" I've heard of.
