Can't recall if I established this outside of some comment discussion, but in case it needs clarification: at this point, besides wanting to finish her doctorate first, Christine is super leery that Raoul and her getting married is a step towards "Love Never Dies" characterization and will trigger that whole mess "happening"/having happened, in-comic.
But Vegas is an original-musical-friendly town, and! Paris is FINALLY showing a French-language version of POTO on stage (huzzah for finally recognizing the merits of that bit of their own pop culture), so maybe the main story and its canon happy/bittersweet/sane ending is getting, in RL, a boost and more "weight" to counter the LND threat on the meta-awareness plane.
(I am so sorry. Deadlines and general busyness and new book release and forgetting how much of a commitment a weekly post is! Also I hit a bit of narrative dry patch in this sequence - originally I was going to play around with Captain Jack Sparrow a little, then I kinda realized that between disappointing sequels and Johnny Depp's latest acting-up, I was not having fun with the character. :/ Next part, won't be next week, but hopefully closer-posted.)

for they end in only two ways three if your just unlucky one is you wear them and shes in control...she wears them and loves it....or the explain yourself ruote then a test
Sarah is worried about his safety in the Building without the girls around as bodyguards
Poor puzzled Raoul! Rifling through a young lady's drawers on the other hand
Bet that compliment didn't come up yet.
... Off to find out if sub-dom fanfics are a actually a bigger thing in the POTO fandom.
And Christine also likes pop music. She's got strange taste. Maybe she likes trashy movies too. Wonder if she's seen The Room (2003).
I imagine handcuffs are a tad cheaper, lad.
If there's a Vegas wedding, who's dressing up like Elvis to officiate?
And oh my. 50 Shades. I couldn't stop laughing when I saw that last panel. Such a book can only create chaos and silliness. And some really entertaining gifts for Christine
Grey hit's all 15 hallmarks of an abusive relationship, and [from what I've heard] he's doing the BDSM all wrong.
Then I put the book down, placed the receipt on top, and mixed myself a few Spaghetti Westerns (half a shot Root 100, half a shot of sarsaparilla).
I like to think Christine is reading 50SG for her informal dissertation on feminist reactions to the portrayal of women’s desires and sexuality in contemporary popular fiction – called Life.
Speaking of which, it’s too bad our heroines can’t hire the new lady Ghostbusters to fumigate those malignant spectres of musical-sequels past.
But Fifty Shades? Really, Chris?
And Srsly Christine I know she's a bit old school, there is much better fiction online. And you can clear your search history. XD
As always this comic gives me life.
I also notice that Sarah made no protest to the "once-and-future goblin queen" comment Christine made. Does that mean she's actually acknowledging the potential reality of that title?
Also, someone below said it better than me, but I really, really appreciate the way you write the ladies. So refreshing/hard to come by in just plain ol' mainstream media. I don't comment a whole lot here nowadays but know that I'm still around, still reading, and still loving every bit of it.
