Double comic page! Hope you like makeouts. There's still a bit left to this story, but we're approaching a conclusion. Dang, dang!

I was re-reading this arc and suddenly there was a new comic! You, Ms. Gran, are a comic-making machine. Hooray for makeouts!
As much as I do enjoy this, somewhere deep down I can't help but wish he was Will instead. Damn me!
Trust me; you're not the only one thinking this!
Pfff, she’s forgotten all about Will. Didn’t you read the cookie story?
Well, I saw this coming.. Good for her.
You and the rest of the readership. C'mon.
Don't be so full of hate, kiddo.
T'was a joke, kiddo.
STOP JUDGING ME
This episode is very authentic to me, especially Eve's line in panel 11. I also like the following panel with Eve doing a little footsie!
eeeee! I love these two!
Yaaaay, I was waiting for this to happen. <3
You and the rest of the readership. C'mon. See what I did there? What a jerk.
Don't be so full of hate, kiddo.

AND THE CIRCLE CONTINUES UNBROKEN
I hate it when people say "saw this coming" in a comic, like the author shouldn't have been so predictable. You honestly think no one else did as well? It just means good writing.
What I said wasn't mean at all, it was more in jest. Pull that stick outta your bum, bub.
I wasn't trying to be a jerk with my comment. I was just pointing out that most of us had seen it coming… come on.
And now my posts are being not posted, hooray. :/
Comments are approved manually, whenever I'm awake. don't sweat it!
Sorry for being a spaz, Meridith. I thought that since I had caused some "drama" in the comments, that mine were now being moderated. D:
This is SO PERFECT. In EVERY WAY.
You know, I thought I'd hate anyone who Eve away from Will.
But I like this guy. Hope this works out. Will will find someone else!
AH! I'm so excited that she likes him and he likes her and they're making out! I love big, grizzly guys 😀
You and the rest of the readership. Wait, shit, too early.
Oh my GOD! That was JUST like me and my last girlfriend! And just when I thought this strip couldn't get any better, or any truer to life. Now I'm staring at the screen with my mouth like this 80
Meredith Gran, thank you for making my day. One more time ^^
It's just like me and my current girlfriend! True, indeed.
Ning seeks nerve in the form of thick-eyebrowed chappies. More at Wednesday.
Good for Eve. Its a shame this won't work out. He seems like a real nice guy.
He's like a giant teddy bear! So much more likeable than Park!
Awww… I liked Park! Will was a bit of a non-entity for me (Sorry! Just didn't find his character interesting! ) but this guy seems really cool! Very real! And anyone spending a weekend snowed in at a mountain lodge should have a fling with a bearded outdoorsman 🙂
Eve's lack of feet is freaking me out a little. Did her lust for this manly man cause her lower limbs to partially evaporate?
Haha so you too? I can't help but feel she has tentacles 🙁 But I love it!
But Park has a career and is going places!
Also: with that cap Jack is wearing, don't they look a bit like grown-up versions of Heidi and Peter? XD Or is it just me?
I'm seeing Snow White and one of the Seven Dwarves…
There's something so satisfying about romantically entangled Eve, even its just temporarily romantophysically (I'm copyrighting) entangled. I guess I just like seeing well meaning people catch a break:-)
Daww I love scruffy bear dudes – I approve.
YAY YAY YAY YAY
beautiful composition.. love the black background of the last panel defining the … night, shall we say? 🙂
or the eve-ning XD
Ugly Jack is a manly man. THE MANLIEST MAN TO EVER GRACE OCTOPUS PIE. And he's got a bitchin' cool beard to boot. Now Marik isn't the only guy with a bitchin' cool beard around here.
>THE MANLIEST MAN TO EVER GRACE OCTOPUS PIE.
Aren't you forgetting someone?
No the MANLIEST MAN EVAR was Victor. Victor was the FUKKEN SHIT 8D
What about Vic– oh, they beat me to it.
Oooooh! Right… Now I feel dumb. But too bad Victor's never around anymore :/
No! No hairy lover for Eve! Only Hanna can have that!
I'm just kidding. This is cute. Yay for Eve.
Heehee, she's doing that thing I do too when I'm nervous and can't stop touching my hairline. Nice detail.
Also the last three panels are sexy, sexy and sexy.
Wait noooo, I just realized this means he'll see her tattoo, and bad things will happen!
where is the tattoo?
According to Jacob, it's in an inconspicuous but visible location, so he should have already been able to see it. I think Jane's is on the back of her neck, and Eve's is on her ankle, so he should've seen it already. Maybe he isn't looking there. (we can see Jack's tattoo on his right forearm. One of the best things about this series of strips is trying to find the Taz Tats in every strip.
I dunno this really bothers me. I don't feel like the romance has developed or the characters have really built up this sort of thing. It seems like a trist of sorts you know? I don't feel like I know their motives very well, or that I know the character of Jack. At least with Will it's developed even if he's not the best guy, at least I know who he is. Jack could be a crazy psycho path or just dump Eve after this whole trip thing. Maybe I'm just being a crazy person, but that's my say on it. I dun't think it'll last honestly, and I have no qualms with that since I don't like it one bit.
Honest opinion, not gonna lie, yank chains, or bull anyone here.
It's definitely sudden, but I dunno, it kinda works for me. They're in the middle of nowhere surrounded by new people, it's been a while since Eve's gotten any love, both of them have probably been at least moderately intoxicated for most of this arc, and Eve's trying to let go of her insecurities.
I have doubts it'll last, too, but I think it makes sense.
Haven't you seen any '80s movies? Ski resorts are THE place for crazy out-of-nowhere trysts, along with summer camp, golf courses, and detention.
I don't think it's really a "romance". They just like each other, and have been spending time together. It's not like they're betrothed.
You are in luck, Ms. Gran – I love makeouts. Also, up to now, I've seen a disturbing amount of myself in this guy, so… here's hoping :p
oh this pleases me! i like him.
i'm sad they probably won't work out
I miss Park, but I'm okay with this. Jack is too awesome for me to dislike.
Say WHAAAAAAAAAAT? $5 says Jack spots Eve's secret tat while they do it. GAWD, i LOVE this comic! : D
Eww. Beard cooties.
This comic is amazing…I could discuss the things I like about it for hours, days or any other hyperbolic expression of time. Mizz Gran, however you do what you do, keep doin' whatchyer doin' 'cuz it's working fer me! 🙂
More Jane/Julie now please. :3

This is sweet and gentle and a little maudlin and the sexiest goddamn comic I have seen in ages. Meredith, seems to me that you're building one of the best comics in the world. Quite literally.
she likes a hefty white guy with a beard and a slouchy beanie. brb, being judgemental.
Oh shit, oh no, when did I become a shipper, oh god, what DO I DO WITH THESE CRAZED FEELING OF PURE ELATION?
Eve's tentacle legs continue to scare me…
Oh MAN, your comment put me in gigglefits. Then I had to go back and look at her legs and had more giggle fits!
Cue Makeoutis Interruptus!
I like him. I like this. I LIKE EVERYTHING. Thank you, Meredith. 🙂
Huzzah! I was hoping something like this would happen. A pretty good start to my morning 🙂
I was reading this comic with all this horrible anticipation thinking 'here we go, Eve chickens out, more regrets later'
but then it didn't happen
and now I am happy.
I can't help but feel he's been putting up a font and lying his way into her pants.
well, as long as it's not Papyrus or Comic Sans, I don't see what the problem is.
I mean, ideally he's a Georgia or Veranda guy, but guys with less sexy fonts can still have a lot of good qualities.
The only true dealbreaker is if he claims that he "was into Calibri, before it got all popular."
