Oh boy, come back Monday!
Meredith, you are the worst tease. And because Marigold is still in wide-eyed shock and hasn't eaten the baked good, Monday's strip can go in so many different directions. Worst. Tease. >:(
When I got here, I was going to be all like, "Meredith, you're awesome for the amount of these you been churnin' out." But damn. Eve blurting is so great and terrible.
RIGHT on the mouf…
I love where this could go.
Either Eve is saying this now because she want's to admit it before her memory is wiped.
Or she's so wracked with guilt that she hopes she doesn't eat the thing and try to mend her friendship.
Or it could just get very 'Terms of Endearment' and it becomes a weep fest.
Bring on Monday!
…with tongue?! Can't wait for Monday!
wow, the pacing of this strip is incredible! i love the first panel
On the mouth.
I wonder if that muffin is truly the love-amnesia muffin?
Best alt text ever.
Remember, as far as Marigold knows, this was her first real relationship.
Meredith, I love your work beyond. But if you choose THIS moment to take another month break…..
Does anyone else think Eve looks like 2D in the last panel?
dun dun dunnnnn
December 2010: National 'Fallout From Webcomic Characters Break-Up' Month
(also, the page layouts in this storyline are delicious)
Awwww! Eve's short lil' pins…
Marigold dated a nerd once. She said so in the tag storyline. So presumably, she's had relationships which were mere brush-offs, thus not requiring the brownie treatment. Possibly.
If I'm understanding correctly, and Will and Marigold have been dating for two years, then Marigold really should not flip out. Not if she's an adult anyway.
If Eve and Will had jumped into bed, or had regular make-out sessions, then obviously, that's a different story.
But one kiss at the beginning of the relationship spawned by jealously? Eve has been a good friend to Marigold in the two years after the incident.
If Marigold seriously holds this over Eve's head, if she really allows a minor hiccup such as this destroy their friendship, then I will finally lose all respect for Marigold.
"Octopus Pie" is the only comic I can get through my work's firewall. I'm so glad. I love the heart this comic has, and I'd be sad to miss an update. Or worse yet, wait until I'm home to read it.
I really like how quick and tense this feels in comparison to the preceding strips. Good way to build up suspense over the weekend.
Eve's probably just assuaging her own guilt, I agree, but she's also being honest with Mar, which is more than can be said of Hannah. Even if now's not the right time she's still doing better by Mar just by confronting shit with her instead of making it all disappear.
…And I liked it.
on the lips with my lips?
EVE THIS IS THE WORST POSSIBLE TIME TO REVEAL THAT.
Memory-erasing food first, self-damning secrets later. Duhhh.
Panel 4 Eve: Epic.
Also the alt text is the best alt text.
lol i love Eve's little legs under the table in the last panel ^_^
The brownout biscuit actually does nothing. Marigold is just the sort of person who flips out for a few days, then tries her best to shove the tragedy out of her mind.
As we can see on this page, Marigold has already started to get over things a bit, to gather her thoughts. Had the conversation gone on naturally, Marigold would have cheered up further, and Eve and her would have formed a new bond of friendship. Eve and Hanna would have convinced themselves that it was the biscuit that did it, like every time.
But this time Eve is doing her Major Confession right before Mar eats the buscuit. Eve is hoping she can get it off her chest, and then get away with it because the snack will leave Mar not caring. This might just be the event that will prove that the "magic" of the brownout biscuit isn't really there.
Just a random thought theory. I wouldn't be surprised if I'm totally off-base.
i love you, ning.
….and meredith, i'm quite fond of you.
"The brownout biscuit actually does nothing" Right. Except for the silly Halloween story, there's been nothing supernatural in Octopus Pie. Right? So this isn't either.
Working theory: Marigold takes the "brownout biscuit" as a social signal: "when my best friend Hanna gives me a really foul-tasting baked good, that means she thinks it's time I shut up about my breakup."
Oh, also, if Marigold freaks out too much about the kissing thing, then that'll…that'll be lame. Because she was willing to ditch Will for Victor, like -that-. (snapping finger noise here).
10 bucks, Eve didn't even put the Brownout Cookie on the plate, but bought a similar cookie from the coffee shop.
OMG, BEST… CLIFF HANGER… EVARRRRRRRRRR!!!!
Which exact comic was this? I NEED CONTEXT FOR MY DRAMA.
Love the art style, great story lines, keep doing what your doing, whatever it is.
I betrayed you trust and am most likely caused the greatest suffering of your adult life… Now eat your cookie.
I think it is really lame of Eve to unload her guilty concience thinking that Mar is going to forget.. which I assume is whats happening here. I wonder if she would have told her had the whole muffin of amnesia thing not been brought up? Also I don't think it has been 2 years that Mar and Will have been togethor has it?
When happened that kiss?? i can't remember : (
Possibly: Eve saying this will remove Will from the position of Mar's object of "dearest affections", whether intentionally, or unintentionally, thereby rendering the brownout cookie ineffective. That would serve to perpetuate the myth of whether or not the cookie is actually effective, and also help Mar put Will into perspective, as someone whom she did not want/need to be with.
I thought this was interesting, after seeing the comment on Eve's legs in the last panel. I noticed Marigold's as well. It's an article on body language:
I wonder if this was deliberate or not on Meredith's part. It would make a lot of sense if she did do this on purpose!
That kiss wasn't entirely her fault and they kind of initiated action simultaneously. It's interesting that she's taking full blame for it.
Or maybe not. I guess that's just her thing, isn't it.
I LOL'D AT EVE'S EYES IN THE LAST PANEL…ALSO WHERE HAS MAREK BEEN?
Oh god, worst freaking time possible for that to blurt out…
Luckily it is eve who is armed with a scalding hot beverage and Marigold with the brownout biscuit, not the other way around.
Oh yes, I recall something was festering somewhere.
Discussion, discussion, discussion. This is why I love the fans of Octopus Pie. Always speculating on what comes next. Reading all these comments makes me giddy :3
I have just gotten into your web comic about 2-3 weeks ago and i have sat here glued to my computer screen working and reading. i must say that this is one of the most engaging web comic i have ever read…. I cant get enough of this stuff. It's like Friends mix with interesting and the story lines are genius. I love whats going on here and I must say, never stop.
Your comics are just so fucking excellent. I can't even deal with this.
Oh, this comic has me drawn to it like a fly to a lamp. I really adore the way Meredith can keep me coming back to this only using words and ink. Most television shows or movies can't do what onepanel of "Pie" does. I can't wait to see how this arc ends, and if Will and Eve get together or not. I hope so.
Also, Marigold: Please don't try to throttle Eve's throat like a jealous teenager. You're an adult, and I know it's the first big relationship that you remember, but try to be reasonable.
what if Eve is the one that eats the cookie?
Mari looks sexy.
Very sad and tired, but sexy.
I'm here! It's Monday! What's happening??
I love how Eve's legs don't even touch the floor.
