    Default Ménage à 3 V: YAOI SENSE TINGLING

    In this thread, we discuss the happenings in the webcomic Ménage à 3 (first page here).

    Currently, the hopeless geek has become the world's most sexually incredible lothario with two at least three something like five incredibly hot girls girls, boys and 'girls and boys' lusting for him, while the busty french girl spent months looking for just one half-decent lay.
    We also had a guy who can wear sunglasses indoors and not be a total douche bag. Subverting genre expectations since 2008!

    Menage a 3
    Ménage à 3 II: Zii's 'Z' Top - Sharp Dressed Girl
    Ménage à 3 III: 47 Seconds Later
    Ménage à 3 IV: It's All Coming To A Head

    We also tend to discuss Mà3's sister comics, Sticky Dilly Buns and Sandra On The Rocks, as well as works by the same author such as Eerie Cuties, MagicChicks and Dangerously Chloe.
    .....Giz is, if nothing else, dedicated to her craft.

    But anyways, be warned: Each of these works (and Mà3 especially) contain some gently (but firmly) NSFW images and themes. If you're not allowed to read pictures of naked gay, straight and bisexual men and women all having sex with each other, or going in to details about why they aren't, then look away now.

    There's no swearing though, so that's alright.

    Arguably it's BECAUSE of Yuki and Sonya that Zii is wary of Izzy.

    As far as we know, Zii has only ever been in two relationships that lasted longer than a couple of booty calls. One was Yuki, who became the psycho-stalker that we all know and love, and the other was Eric which ended badly and left Zii embarrassed. She's in no rush to repeat either mistake, and hooking up with Izzy looks like it might end up being a long term thing if only because of the latter's inability to take a hint even when dropped from a great height.

    Then Sonya's clingy obsession seems to have ruined Zii's good luck in her "love 'em and leave 'em" one night stands, as not only could she not get rid of the damn girl but she was the direct cause of Sonya and Jacob's relationship breaking down. She now has some first hand experience at what her carelessness can do, and doesn't seem as carefree about it as she used to.

    Poor Zii, so alone and emotionally broken that she might never love... or 'love'.... again. Bet you never thought you'd see someone say that about her, right?

    We only know about those two longer-term relationships in Zii's past,* but a lot of that past is unknown to the readers. I personally think that the best explanation for her whole behaviour pattern at the start of the comic involves a fairly serious relationship in her late teens that went sour when the other person dumped her very hard. (So she decided to get the loving-and-leaving thing in first in future.) No proof, but it fits so well.

    Which said, yeah, she may have learned a lesson or two these last few months. Still, I don't see her deciding to avoid Izzy as requiring much new wisdom. Whereas Yuki started out looking like an interesting ****buddy, and Sonya as a really hot fling, before they both turned out to be terribly clingy, Izzy's behaviour just screams "scary nutjob" from out of the box. Zii would have to be completely drowning in hormones to miss that. If she had real sense, she'd be working out how to avoid Izzy altogether by now.



    *Actually, we could also add Amber, with whom she apparently spent hours locked in her room back in their teens, and who has more recently received multiple booty calls. It may never have been a "serious" relationship, but it endured for a while, twice.

    Eh, I don't like the idea that to be... well, like Zii it means someone must have hurt you badly. There are many reasons to have an easy going attitude toward commitment.

    Well, Zii seems to be enjoying herself for now, I guess we'll get back to the crazy stalker plot later.

    I can't exactly say why but I dislike the "all lesbians have the hots for Sandra" plotlibe. It was cute with Cammie but now...

    Also: I know I'm terrible at reading women but... what is Chloe's issue suddenly?

    But Zii's attitude isn't just easygoing; she seemed downright scared, until Erik got past her guard. I dunno; there just seem to be a lot of tiny hints in her dialogue that there's something like that buried in her past.

    Teenage romantic jealousy, compounded by the facts that she's (a) a demon, (b) an idiot, and (c) a cartoon character.

    I think it's just supposed to be mirroring Gary's plotline, since they are both technically main protagonists. Unrelated, Gary and Sandra, have still had the most chemistry with each other than with any of their other ships so far, but what're ya gonna do?

    Well, DiDi is by far not the only person who thinks wrestling is real...

    I feel it's been a while since DiDi's breasts got that much attention, too. Maybe the rest of the cast is just as desentizied as the readers by now. (boing)


    Also: not sure if Ruby is a great or a terrible assistant.

    Aw, come on. I'm sure she meant well. At least she's not one of the crazy kind... And she seems really into it. Like, REALLY into it. (Though, I will agree I find it confusing when she speaks French all of a sudden)

    Meanwhile, in Paris, even super cute lesbians are apparently unable to get dates. Because...?

    Because she doesn't really WANT dates.

    Remember, per the in-comic timeline here she just broke up with her at least somewhat long time girl friend like a week ago. And she appears to be chronically insecure, so she doesn't actually LOOK for dates and complains that she can't find them (because she's not really looking).

    Because of the level of competition, as well as everything else. The degree of generic universal cuteness in that universe is astronomical.

    Wrestlers hate people who think wrestling is real? I never knew.


    Well, Damien lost the chance to get massively beaten up... too bad?

    Zii and Ruby are going to be millionaires soon and Sandra... I have no idea where this plot is going. More lesbian shennanigans, probably.

    Yeah I kind of stopped reading SOTR, it feels like it's just flailing around desperately searching for a plot rather than having anything planned out.

    They hate the ones who have the bright idea to try and get into the ring when they're putting on a show. Fortunately Didi is talked down from it.

    Mind, promoters don't like that either, but they do love viewers who are instantly absorbed into what's going on. Hence the term "marks" for referring to those viewers.

    I think that it's been set up to have a string of short-term mostly-gag stories, without a strong overarching plot, but with some possibilities for individual characters or their situations to change occasionally. Take it or leave it on that basis.

    At the beginning it actually did have at least a somewhat thought out plot, that of Sandra falling into the whole 'video game model' thing and Gary's entire cameo was basically her struggling with the fact that she's become a symbol of female gamers but hasn't actually gamed in years. Now they seemed to have jettisoned that entirely in favor of random semi-lesbian hijinx which aren't particularly entertaining.

    I'm guessing that Lukas is Eva's live-in PA/sidekick, useful and somehow trusted enough that she keeps him around and puts up with his snark because he gets stuff done. And Eva is willing to tag someone in, but Eva is being written as Decadent Evil, so of course she is. And I'm getting a "kept man" vibe off Armani, so he does what he's told.

    She's one of the million girls Amber invited to get swirlied. She turned out to be kind of geeky, or at least... interested in tech? Also, she's the secretary for a firm Gary applied at, the one where the boss thought he was a stud. They do have a bit of chemistry together, so... yeah.


    The other plots aren't really exciting right now, yeah. Maybe this could become more interesting. SDB is okay, possibly building up to a good arc. DC had a few fun strips lately, imo.

    I mean for weeks now we've been following DiDi around, and quite frankly there is very little interest in staged wrestling these days, especially amongst the community that would read a webcomic.

    ALL HAIL THE GREAT RAK!!

    I use the same name in every game I ever play or forum I join (except the pretender on PSN that forced me to be RealOlinser). If you see an Olinser in a game or on a website, there's a high chance it's me, feel free to shoot me a message.

    The other plots aren't really exciting right now, yeah. Maybe this could become more interesting. SDB is okay, possibly building up to a good arc. DC had a few fun strips lately, imo.
    Thanks a lot. I do remember her and where she worked, and how they met.. But I forgot what she borrowed Gary.

    Also, why does she stutter about K.. K.. Koffee?
