    Yay! There's our favourite riding dog!

    Also at Serrin's reaction to Janine just wanting water. Some people just don't like drinking, ok? Mind, I don't do it because I don't like the taste - I imagine Janine has a deeper reason for it. I also don't know think I know the milk joke...

    Silverraptor gets extra spoilers because Lucrid and Saffrin (sp?) came from a roleplaying game he played with Coffee, in which he played Lucrid right? That's what I remember reading a thread or two ago anyway.

    I've done the 'pencils' for part four of five of that cover project I was doing, by the way Coffee, and while I'm on that subject I should maybe point out that the first post still links to the first draft of part three, rather than the updated version with Lloyd and Janine's newer faces.

    Fixed it. Also, Serrin wasn't talking about the fact that Janine wasn't drinking, she's wondering why Janine got water and not milk; the joke being that whenever someone who doesn't drink goes into a bar, they order milk, not water.

    Serrin's dad is a bard. He would've told her all about those cliche's. And yes, we played a roleplaying game together. And when the roleplay just "died", we just PMed back and forth, time skipping through their life until the present.

    Huh. Maybe that's more common in America. Here the default drink for those who don't drink alcohol seems to be orange juice; it's a running gag/motif in Inspector Morse (Morse is a big drinker and Lewis has to drive him everywhere so whenever the two go to a pub Lewis is only ever allowed orange juice. After the series had ended due to both Morse and the actor who played him dying, Lewis gets his own spin-off show and deputy. In the first episode Lewis and his sargeant go out for a drink and Lewis has a pint and orders orange juice for his sargeant) and an episode of Yes Minister used this as a plot device. They may be playing with the milk idea though in The IT Crowd where Moss's favourite drink is a White Russian. People don't really tend to drink glasses of milk on its own in Britain unless they're under the age of seven. (In other words, the joke falls a bit flat across the pond )

    Thanks for fixing the link.

    I know there was much discussion last comic, but what is random extra's deal? What kind of sheltered/uptight life does he lead.

    "A couple meeting, making out, and going home together in a BAR?!?!?!? Never in my life have I heard of such a thing! Have they no respect for the dignified, somber, and VERRRRRY serious ritual of imbibing alcohol?"

    My apologies if this is a spoiler or already mentioned earlier, but is Janine not allowed to drink because of some sort of religious vow or a personal one due to previously being an alcoholic or making a single horrible decision while drunk?

    Errr...I thought that was just the set up. The joke is a non-drinker orders milk, and then a heavy drinker who believes not drinking is a sign of weakness says "are you sure you need a glass or do you want that served right from your momma's nipple, baby?"

    You are very good at assuming things based on little evidence and drawing overblown conclusions from them.

    EDIT: Ok, to clarify, i mean 'that is a poor assumption to make with so little evidence'. Maybe he was jealous?

    Between your comic and the couple of play by post games I'm in, I'm beginning to love weekends. Also, as a late New Year's resolution, I must refer to what I'm drinking as manliness, liquid manliness, or some variation of either one of these days.

    I'm guessing Janine is disturbed by being in the bar, because of something traumatizing which happened the last time she drank, but beyond that, I don't have any decent clue as to what that is. As for the couple making out, maybe the extra was irritated because he had to clean up after them (please don't read more into that comment than is necessary ).

    By the way, is Dragonsbreath a reference to one of the Quest for Glory games? And whoever wins the drinking contest, the results promise to be very funny. The owner of the place had better hope Serrin isn't trigger happy with her spells.

    Perhaps one of the two came to the bar with him?

    Haha, thanks. And that interpretation of Random Extra is funny, but the reason he's ticked off is that the two of them were about to go at it, right in front of him, on the table where he was sitting and drinking.

    Ah. I hadn't heard that one before either. It makes sense as a joke but Serrin said that "the joke works so much better with milk than with water" (or something along those lines) ...I don't see how the joke above would work at all with water instead of milk. To me it's an odd cliché because I don't think I've ever seen an example of it...

    I just assumed he was bar staff and that he was annoyed a) because they spilt drinks everywhere and b) because they ordered another and left before paying for it.
    Also, I don't go to bars but I assume whilst making out may be commonplace, public displays of affection on table-tops are less commonplace. Either way I imagine it would be more shocking if it happened on your table!
    ...or if he'd come to the bar with one of the participants, as per Devmaar's suggestion...

    This cannot end well. I seem to recall Coffee once saying something about Serrin's behavior when drunk. Can't remember what it was, though. But I get the feeling I'll be reminded soon enough...


    Also, I thought the guy in the background was irked because it was his girlfriend or something.

    There is a $50 entrance fee. As well as a $10 fee on all food, water, sleeping quarters, and hours staying respectively. If you find yourself locked in for whatever reason this is completely normal and just wait until it is unlocked later. Feel free at that time to go to sleep at any moment.

    3/4th of all your taxes and fees will be provided to Coffee's noble effort of providing the caffine-free patches for those so increadibly hyper that they would be willing to do anything to just calm down.

    Okay. I've had my fun. XD

    Well, never a better time to post this fan art sketch than now, what with Valentine's Day and the imminent drinking contest between Matt and Serrin...

    Drawn without any references, so I probably got Matt's outfit wrong. As for why his hair is down instead of all spiky like it's supposed to be... I blame Serrin. And artistic license.

    Opinions?
    And yes, I do ship Serrin/Matt. How could you tell?
