A couple of things! I did a Comics Shelfie over at Comics & Cola, where I talk about the books n' stuff that have informed me. Thanks to Zainab Akhtar for inviting me to contribute! Also I finally updated the story guide with the last couple of chapters, to bring this website into the 21st century. Bye!!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH MY HEART IS EXPLODING I LOVE YOU MEREDITH THIS IS SO BEAUTIFUL!
All of my YES <3
This is too cute for LIFE.
Heart goes BOOM!
*squee noise audible only to dogs*
No kidding. I saw this page and every kennel in the county went off.
i love your comic. it makes me feel nice, like i'm getting a glimpse of what being an adult figuring out what life could be.
and as a 26 year old girl living in brooklyn, I gotta say this comic is creepily accurate
Their faces in panel 5 are making me smile so wide => 😀
I've had Mar's expression in that situation.
Special Special Special Special Special Special Special Special Special 1$
Their faces in that fifth panel are the absolute best.
Someone must be chopping onions nearby :,)
Huh, didn't think I'd identify with a signboard so strongly. I too am screaming the word "Special" again and again. I love this, everything is great right now.
Well, that's one way to dodge the boss's potluck.
LET THE SQUEEING COMMENCE :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Seems I'm not the only one with a thing for making out near empty construction sites.
I have a thing for making out with other women pretty much anywhere.
"Too damn loud"? Tch! Jane, you smooth cheeky little bugger you XD
On a related note, it turns out that Marigold had actually been wanting this to happen as much as Jane did (!!?) Am I the only one who's been taken completely by surprise by the revelation?
as much as I don't really like Jane, this is a cute-ass comic. "Your heart's pounding"?? awwww.
I know! I'm struggling to deal with the cuteness overdose even now ^^
Janes a bit dominating, asserting and self-referential, but now where as much as Larry.
Yet, thats why shes perfect for Marigold. She can provide a world for marigold to enter into, that they can share together. Marigold has always been somewhat desperate to escape her own head and live under someone else's .
( re:read the beggining of her relationship with Will )
Nows she comfortable in her own skin, but she needs another persons world she can take a refuge in. ( hence her habitually spa-ing )
Jane is a world-and-community-builder. Jane can give her that world and refuge.
I dont just Ship this: I would officiate the marriage
Well, this paid off in the best possible way.
*jet flyover and complete parade*
I-IT FEELS SO RIGHT
i am so excited and so glad and THIS IS REALLY THE BEST THING I'VE SEEN ALL DAY
all year!!! I thought I was excited for will and eve, but this is more exciting than victor!
It is good story telling when I didn't expect this but it also does not feel unnatural for it to happen.
Marigold's speaking for all of us in this page XD
OMG!!! THEY'RE SHOWING "JAWS"!!!
And they have giraffes on the top floor!
And Ferris Wheels!
Eve's gonna be all like 'Whhhaattt?'
I expect Eve to squee like the rest of us 🙂
this is the happiest page ;_;
"Your heart's pounding" Well this so blushingly sweet that MY heart is galloping like a merry horse in a sunny meadow <3
I like the way in panel 6 the last thing we see is Marigold's hand and purse disappearing around the corner of the construction site.
I LOVE the small glimpse of Mars bag in panel 6 <3 this page is too cute
This is pretty freaking adorable.
Panel 5 Marigold's face… looks like Rose Quartz?!!!!
Jane is awfully confident for someone who's had a flamingly obvious crush on Marigold for…how many strips has it been now?? Cuties!
8D *feeeeeels feels FEELS feels*
This is just too perfect
"Your heart's pounding"
*tears in my eyes*
I don't know guys, this seems too good to be true! Especially because it's following a segment about how Jane seeks solace by retreating into her head … I'm worried that might be what's happening right now, and we'll snap back to her at the bar shortly. D:
Aw, this is great. I love Marigold's goofy smiles! As for Jane having a crush on her forever, I don;t know about that… she did call Mar basic back here… http://www.octopuspie.com/2014-12-03/733-who-does…
Haha, just reread earlier comments. Already been discussed. No worries!
But they also bonded here: http://www.octopuspie.com/2015-02-17/752-753-that… and Jane seems to fumble over her actions and put on some bravado. And she's gettin' her stare on at a be-toweled Marigold doing some fabulous hairdrying and not even trying to appear like she's looking at her phone: http://www.octopuspie.com/2015-03-03/758-placebo-… There was a lot of speculation over Jane's feelings at the time.
HAW HAW SO MARIGOLD *WAS* SHOWING OFF FOR JANE ALL ALONG, MAYBE?
signed, someone with basically Marigold's exact hair color and style that has been known to use it to Get To People
I'm still worried about this relationship, though. It still strike me as an extremely mean thing to call someone 'basic' so…I don't completely trust Jane. But I think that's also because if I met a Jane in real life she'd probably hurt my feelings a lot, so I'm biased. I just hope this goes okay.
Jane said ONE debatably two-faced thing about Marigold ONE time. Have you and the other people harping on it really and truly never done that? Sometimes I say shitty things I barely mean, that I later regret. Sometimes I get unexpectedly close to or touched by people I'd written off. It's a lovely surprise, life is a rich tapestry, and the twinges of guilt I feel are SEASONING for my SOUL.
I bet that drawing feels bad, and I hope that is enough to satisfy her God and all of you!!!
Hah, I that last one reminds me of a time I went swimming with a friend that I would get together with about a month later, when we both did a bit of staring. Meredith knows how it is.
Remember when Marigold was a bit character whose claim to fame was "making soap out of fuckin' anything?"
thats why this is such a good comic, the character development is uncanny
MariJane is a-go people. MARIJANE IS A-GO.
Must add my AAAAHHHHHHHHHH of approval!!!!!
aaaaaaaa <33 someone send help
