    I may just have forgotten something from the strip over the last break, but why is Mark sulking? Do we know?

    I had forgotten about Ravenia. How is that even possible?
    Also, I tried to go back and check for what last happened with Mark and Ravenia and discovered the drop down menu under the comic only goes to chronicle 2: chapter 6.

    I’m all about open relationships in which we can see whoever we want. But *I’D* be weirded out going out with someone going out with a friend. Not saying it’s wrong or anything, just for me, it’d be unconfortable.

    Still shipping Sarah and Hadeed BTW. Dude does his homework and gives his everything.

    I just realised something…… Abbie without Pocky is a Rick. See Panel 2

    KatteLars, he’s sulking because he kind of has a thing for Sarah but before he’s even realized it himself she started seeing Hadeed.

    And now I start getting nervous that a whole bunch of romantic triangles are going to start up. I really don’t think I’m up for that, especially since I really like Hadeed and Sarah together.

    KatteLars, he’s been like that since he found out about Sarah/Hadeed after the last LARP. Like many people he appears to be a dumb jerk about the whole “I don’t want her, but I’m gonna be all jealous when someone else makes a move”.

    *sigh* honestly, the only way to solve this clusterfu# would be if sarah+hadeed join the poly crowd so that mark+sarah can date as well.

    Mark, sweetie, Ravenia is a lovely girl. Appreciate whatcha got.

  18. Paperiahma Says:

    I’m actually wondering if this is less about Mark being jealous about Sarah and more about him being jealous of her. From what we’ve seen, Sarah and Hadeed are really sweet together and all is fairly simple with them. Poly relationships can be complicated when you’re not used to it and who knows what Mark really thinks about the whole thing. Not to mention he and Ravenia don’t seem to have that much in common under the surface level, at least from what we’ve seen. So I don’t know, maybe he just wants someone LIKE Sarah, who is only with him and who he has more in common with. But then again, after being with someone for a long time, it can be unbearable to be alone, after the rush of being a free single wears off. But I could be wrong, this is just speculating on my part. Looking forward to how things develop and I’m now firmly rooting for Hadeed and Sarah! 🙂

    @TheDarkTyger I agree that Ravenia is a lovely girl, but ultimately, I think she was a still more of a rebound for Mark and that it’s not something that would make him happy or work long term. Short term, it’s good and fun for both of them, but long term I can’t see it working or lasting.

    Well, communication is indeed really important in relationships (not only polyamorous, but yeah, it is even harder to make polyamorous relationships work without communication).

    Mark… Even if he probably had feelings for Sarah but saw her as a friend and did not want to compromise that. It is not a “friendzone” thing, there are feelings, but he is scared to act on them and lose what he already has (their friendship).

    It was not very easy between them : Sarah had a crush for Mark from the beginning and then, she felt responsible for Mark’s breakup with Jessie (if I remember it correctly), so things were probably awkward between them for a moment.

    I think they can be an item, but Hadeed is a nice guy too.

    I really want him to get back to his original girlfriend.

  22. TheDarkTyger Says:

    @Clark: Fair point. And I think the scarcity of Ravenia appearances is very telling for us, the readers as well.

    @dr pepper: Honestly? I don’t. She really was a bad fit for Mark. Not a bad person, just not for him.

  23. Jason Thorn Says:

    I never could understand the concept of an “open” relationship. When I was in a relationship, I didn’t even THINK about being with anyone else. I was just grateful that someone cared about me and wanted to be with me.

    And now I will eat this popcorn and wait for the plot thread about Mark’s ex stalking him to return. <3
