Doing the deed with Tina must be kinda like having a orgy .
With a puma.
Her body’s not that old, and …
Oh – did you mean the teeth?
Actually, it is. She’s in her thirties.
Awesome. Unless each demon gets a ride at the helm. That would be a lot of sex, and I pity the man that has to satisfy all of them.
Pity? Sounds like every man’s dream.
A man can be worn out, my friend. For example, let’s just say, for the sake of argument, Tina is comprised of five demons. That’s five rounds in one night. Could you pull that off? Nine? Twelve? What if thirteen demons want seconds?
Then I die a happy, happy man
No, you wouldn’t. It would just get harder and harder to get it up until she’s sitting there naked on ya goin’ “Come on, come on!” and you still got nothing.
Ah, but then you have all the fun of telling the remaining demon-women no.
“every man’s dream”?
Only those men delusional enough about their own skills to think they can satisfy that many at once, or don’t care if they do.
Someone like me, who prides themselves in making sure that their partner is satisfied before he is and knows the limitations of his own stamina … as much fun as I think Tina would be, I am damned sure it would KILL me.
And no, not in a “what a way to go! high five!” kinda way either. For me, it would be a died-in-shame-what-a-loser sort of way – because my last fading thought would be “she probably thinks I am pathetic …”
Oh, the many possibilities
Someone could actually write Tina/Tina slash.
…wouldn’t that be Tina/Tina/Tina/Tina/Tina/Tina (maybe more) slash?
Heh. Paul. Change Tina’s name to Jennifer. That way she can have Mike Doughty’s “27 Jennifers” for a theme song… 😀
lol, Monica will poit back and they’ll be under the covers catching their breath, with one smoking a cigarette if only for cliché’s sake.
For some reason, that one made me cringe. Hmm…odd.
@Julie: It’s because subconsciously you’re aware of how horrible Phix was to Tina, even if you won’t admit it. 😛
@ eschmenk “You Always Hurt the One You Love.” 😉
Having sex with Nudge is pretty close to beastiality. At least Phix can look human and is mostly human. Still, dealing with her animal part when she is in natural form could be problematic (for normal people). Nudge looks like an intelligent animal on it’s hind legs. Not my cuppa, anyway.
@eschmenk – No. 😛 I think it’s probably more along the lines of what SoWhyMe said.
@ SoWhyMe What makes you think Nudge can’t look more human. She’s a trickster; she’d be a poor one if she couldn’t! 🙂
Perhaps, but we’ve seen no evidence of having the morphing abilities of Phix. Simply putting on
lipstick, high heels and sexy undergarments won’t do it.
@Julie: Nevermind. I saw we started out with Tina/Tina and saw that Fairportfan say /Phix, but missed the Nudge/ part, so I thought it was Tina/Phix.
Nudge is a Trickster it is in the job description. Of course, since this is Paul’s world, he has the final say.
It’s the United States of Tina.
Well… Shelly DOES have a point there. Also, I always thought of Tina as… well… you know INTO girls. And Paul, would it kill you to have at least ONE lesbian character?
There was that one girl, Heather.
There was Heather a while back. I think she was bi, though. She got over Shelly, finally.
That was because she had a new girlfriend.
Were you thinking of this strip? I’m not sure how to take that. Earlier Owen thought she was interested in him, but really Heather was just interested in the amplifier he was using.
Well, she was somewhat interest in Owen, http://wapsisquare.com/comic/01162004/
(and strips following, but she’d since lost interest)
Yes, but in this one she sounds as if she is already more attracted to Shelly than she ever was to Owen: http://wapsisquare.com/comic/01262004/.
Going back to when they first met, Heather seemed more interested in the amplifier than Owen on 01/03/2003. Then there was the “sloppy kiss” on 01/31/2003.
I think Shelly and Owen were misreading her, but I don’t know by how much. She at least thought Owen was a nice guy and was flattered by the attention, but was it more than that? I don’t know.
Wow… the page 2 updates after that one was (i’m pretty sure) the very last Heather page. I miss her, she was a great character.
You’re going to feel really bad when Paul introduces another lesbian character and then gets hit by a bus.
TlalocW: …I thought we were past the infinite loops of time…?
I always thought of Tina as being non-sexual. She hasn’t really reacted to things in such a way that you’d think she was interested in “doing the deed” herself. It’s always seemed like more of a “friends are supposed to encourage and express an interest in this, so I should too” kind of thing to me.
What about when she and Bud were dancing together at the Club?
Well … touche.
Tina’s got the mesmer-eyes goin’ in panel one……….
‘Look deeply into my eyes – or up my nose, whichever…”
“…now cluck like a chicken!”
Hey, I know she’s in a relationship, but in my first read-through… I thought Shelly was coming on to her…
So she’s kinda mesmer-eye-zing?
Paul has said that Tina’s eyes are silver.
So, she’s mesmer-eye-silver, not -zinc?
DUDE!?!? Have you seen her face, chest, waist, hips, legs??? The whole package??? Ok, so your head been a little out there lately so I’ll try and tell you simple. Their a Girl !!!
I think ‘dude’, like ‘guy’, has become an asexual term.
As long as it’s not “Dudetrix”. Or “Dudess”.
*shudders* I’ve gotten “dude” for years but I only got “dudette” once…from an ice skating teacher, in 1988. I think it missed the 90s bus.
I’ve noticed even bitch is becoming asexual. The song/rap/whatever the hell it is “Bitches Ain’t S*** ” has examples of this.
Hmm…possibly. Although, when it’s used in reference to a man, it’s usually insinuating that his manhood is questionable (ergo, still a feminine term); whereas, when it’s used in reference to a woman, it’s usually suggesting that she’s mean and/or aggressive.
Harrumph… Since Tina has mutiple personalities/conciousnesses, does the old song lyric “If you can’t be with the one you love, love the ones you’re with.” (sic) insert groan here…
Imagine Tina’s shop is between a comic book shop and a computer store.
Now imagine the guys running those.
Now imagine Tina with one of those guys.
(Dang, I thought I had a point… It’s early!)
Well, what about “Never sleep with someone crazier than yourself”?
(Of course, carried to its logical conclusion, that pretty much means nobody gets any…)
I think she coulda stopped at Jin.
And so we finally get to the crux of the matter. Who knows, maybe there is a man out there with the same condition as hers. Writing a personals ad looking for such a person might be tricky, though.
Attractive undead souless female desires to meet attractive previously deceased male with demons in control of body/shell. Object: multiple demon world couplings. Should be business oriented with keen sense of other’s auras. Ability to manifest demons on demand a plus. Men with MPD need not respond.
You know who’d be a perfect match for Tina?
Eugh. That’s… Oh, wait, you have a Jason mask. Nevermind.
She would have to find someone else that has an entire football team in their head.
There might be guys or girls with a single mind willing to date her…. but can they share with another single mind?
I doubt it. Unless the author wants to make this character less complex of a character.
Doesn’t have to be the same condition–just someone turned on by her condition, and who has conditions that turn her/them on.
I can’t help but wonder at the kids Tina would end up with, presuming that things can go there.
…”Mom, Timmy pulled my hair!”
…”Timmy, stop pulling your hair.”
If she could reproduce, would the offspring have a soul?
thats an interesting thought. though its said one needs a soul to create life, so its possible, from a biological stand point, that she could make a dead baby because she has all the organs, (and from a wapsi stand point) then a few demons could inhabit the body…
That would be an interesting baby since it would be run by beings who are adults. It could talk right away and know all sorts of things. It would act like an adult, not a baby, though it might not be coordinated enough to fend for itself for a while.
I think we’ve just explained how Baby Stuey can walk talk and dress himself at one year old. Also why his voice sounds different from everybody else.
What is that Shelly’s wearing? A “Goodbye Kitty” tee shirt?
That’s the conclusion I came to.
…and devoutly to be hoped.
can we use this gun (http://www.glamguns.com/hk47.html) to say goodbye?
According to the fine print at the bottom of the page, apparently not. 🙁
awww ….. but I want the babysitting kit!
Dunno if I’d spend $1k to assassinate a shirt. I do ok killing them with chocolate milk.
I think Tina’s issue is a lack of suitable candidates. She hears it all as a barista. Guys complain about girlfriends that can’t make up their minds. Imagine one that has to take a vote on every thing.
Tina 2.0 has all the tools to get laid, she just needs to know how to use them. I, for one, love girls with a sharp wit, something Tina has in spades.
Sharp pointy teeth too. Not a good thing during certain activities. And wouldn’t it be a lot like necrophilia, only the corpse is still moving?
I dunno…she’s not a corpse (since the body has functioned well enough for doctors not to freak out when putting her in a cast). Necrophilia enthusiasts would probably be disappointed by our dear barista. 😛
I’m thinking your personals ad should be modified to accept MPD folks since she has a pulse. 🙂
“Take a cold bath and lie very still, okay, honey?”
But MPD folks only think they have multiple agents at the helm. Someone like Tina actually would have them.
True enough, but MPD folks wouldn’t know the difference. Tina likely would, but I have to wonder if their auras would change when the personality shift took place, and if that would be enough to validate the “existence” of other personas for Tina.
I could live with that…
The pointy teeth isn’t that bad if she doesn’t use them during the activities I’m pretty sure you’re talking about.
She needs someone to give her ‘the talk.’ Having the amnesia, I’m not sure anyone told her about hos sex works. She needs Monica or Shelly to give her ‘the talk’ STAT!
Better yet, “the demonstration.”
A conversation comes to mind, from QC:
“She doesn’t have a comfort zone.”
“Maybe I could help her find it. With my tongue.”
“You’d render her catatonic!”
“Damn right I would.”
I’m not sure how well that would go for Tina if she got a demonstration before she got a talk. She might not know exactly what was going on, even if she had a general idea.
if they consider sex with vampires necrophilia then sex with Tina counts as necrophilia, basically it is sex with a person who has died (whether their body is still moving or not) and Tina did technically die
So did Monica.
(mine obviously XD)
Totally agree, Tina is tied with Bud as my second favorite character. I’d volunteer for that experiment.
Oh God. What if Tina 1.0 never had sex? What if that’;s a virgin body? Ugh, the hymen breaking might turn the demons running the show off of sex forever.
Which brings up the question as to whether she as periods?
Maybe that’s why she was such a buzzkill earlier, when she slammed M’s haircut and took a dig at Shelly.
Tina is ravishing. One, twenty, fifty – no matter! 😀
1. Drinking orange juice after brushing my teeth is something I avoid like the plague. It’s just nasty to me.
2. Cough, burp, and fart at the same time? Really? First of all, is that even possible? Secondly, why is that something she’d think of to fill in the pauses in Shelly’s question??
Because (at least one of) Tina is a bit of a smartass?
If you want to try to find out if it’s possible, be my guest.
What else should she have said? I liked it.
Come to think of it, you are from where they might still have debutant balls 🙄 (The Houston Chronicle was reporting on a bunch of them a few years ago, at least.) Shelly is a tough, northern, blue-collar girl. Tina wouldn’t care about stuff like that and is going to talk appropriately for the person she is talking to.
Yes, they do still have debutante balls here (though not loads of them), and Southern manners are instilled in many people from an early age.
That said, we can appreciate crude humor, and I definitely fall into the category of those who do. I was mostly questioning how that would even occur to her. 😛
She left out hiccups. I do hiccup and cough at the same time. I think a small burp may have preceeded the act from time to time as well. I could go for the qudrafecta of cough, hiccup, burp and fart if I tried. Then I can work on the addition of a sneeze.
How?? Hiccups are usually an intake of breath and coughs are an expulsion of breath. While I can see them happening in close succession, at the same time seems very odd/unlikely.
Or are you just special like that? 😛
What usually happens is that the hiccup occurs shortly after the cough starts, interrupting and stopping it prematurely. Then the latter portion of the cough finishes. So it’s all part of the same cough.
And it’s painful as hell, if it catches you just right.
It’s painful as hell if it catches you wrong, too.
Love the first panel, What is Shelly implying here?
“Com’n Dude Have you look at Jin, M, and me?” Is Shelly coming on to Tina? or something….(the first panel, has me wondering)
Is this just girl talk ? [geek girl lost in the middle of chatty females]
Nah, that’s because all three of them have demons. (Shelly has kind of an ex-demon.)
I was going to say because they aren’t normative; your insight could be the reason for that. 😉
According to the story line, everyone has an assortment of demons. That’s not unique. Being aware of them, however, is. Directly talking to, and seeing them, is really rare.
Also all three of them are somewhat … Out There…
I’m not sure if you saw my comment, but to me we are basically saying the same thing. The demons are psychological elements that drive behavior, after all.
Just to make sure PBHunnydew doesn’t miss it: Tina said, as an excuse: “I’m a freak you know?” Well, so are they. Yet, despite all of their weirdness, they managed to have boyfriends, so why not Tina?
In this story they are not just a psychological element; they’re real. Separate beings with an agenda of their own.
Jin’s problems are a bit beyond personal demons at this point. 🙂
You’re right Jin’s problem is she has been there and done that like 57 times, is schizophrenic, and is essentially superhero material. That’s a lot of burden to shoulder.
At the time Jin met Alan, her schizophasia wasn’t so severe, and it really was her personal demons that were bothering her a lot.
BTW, I agree that the demons are more than just psychological elements, but a partner probably wouldn’t know that at first. The psychological aspect would be what would sabotage relationships.
I don’t think the time loops are as big a deal for Jin anymore. That’s in the past. She is facing a new problem now. What she is doing now won’t reset.
Well, it looks like we misinterpreted Shelly’s jacket on Friday. That’s a hood, I guess. In any case, it’s not on her shoulders.
Paul seems to be trying to frame the characters’ heads in the bottom two panels. Tina is off-center, which fits her discomfort, but it was distracting to me.
I just noticed – in the first panel, the way Tina’s hairline and jawline run, it almost looks like she’s wearing a full-dace mask.
I saw that and and thought that was a bit distracting, too. (Meaning in addition to Tina’s shoulders seeming to support the frame behind her in the second panel.)
Ah! THAT’S what it is. I could not put my finger on it before. The error is that Tina’s shoulders are cut off at the frame as if they go behind it.
Actually, Tina is in front. Paul just drew her shoulders very square. If you zoom in you can see that her left shoulder goes a few pixels up into the frame. He seemed to want the line of the frame to be visible between her shoulders and her hair, but I suppose it could be just a coincidence. There is a bit of a flaw, though, in that the wall texture seems to stop in a straight line that is a little short of the edge of the frame on the left side (Tina’s right). There seems to be two effects that I don’t care for. One is that it seems as if Tina is supporting the weight of the frame on her shoulders and the other is that her head seems to be separated from the rest of her body. Shelly’s head is framed by the background, too, but it doesn’t seem as jarring.
I volunteer to be the partner…
I bet a lot of men would. Be gentle, it’s her first time.
Considering her eye socket spider burning capabilities, it might be more the other way around. Who knows what sorts of energies are flowing through other body cavities?
I can take it.
Be careful what you wish for….
Still, one might be wise to probe with something not alive first.
Shelley’s T-shirt is awesome…is that a dead HelloKitty?
Yes but Tina with a guy would solve what? Isn’t she happy by herself? I don’t think I’ve ever seen her lonely?
Unrelated, what DID happen to Owen?
We assume he’s merrily romping with his gorilla GF. I think Owen has serious self esteem issues due to his short stature, but he seems to be happy.
I’m sure Lakshmi prefers the term “Indo-Amazonian.”
Must be like humping a focus group.
“Okay, how many of you like it when I do this?”
“Looks like 70% want my finger over here.”
True, very good. Perhaps we should send a guy from Nielsen.
You are SO awesome.
If one of Tina’s demons says ‘No’ wihile the others say ‘Yes’, would Tina’s partner be committing rape?
Depends, do they use the democratic process, or an anarchic process?
Seriously? I think that if one said no and the others said yes, the ones that said yes would say no until they figured out why the one that said no said no.
The rest could kick the dissenter out for a while. Sort of like one might do with a roommate so he/she can have the place to themselves for the duration of the sexual congress.
Making love to Tina is… very… enticing thought.
Start out simply being together, spending an evening or a day talking, teasing, playing around, enjoying each other’s company…
… somehow end up snuggled together on the couch, watching some old movie neither of us have ever seen, feeling each other breathe, feeling each other’s weight against us, fiddling with each other’s hair…
… gently begining to explore, getting lost in each other’s scents, sounds, textures, sensitivites, eyes…
… sliding closer together, nervous and curious, kissing finally, then more…
… et cetera, et cetera, et cetera…
*closes his eyes and grins*
Providing you start early enough such that she doesn’t go into shut down in the middle of the proceedings.
She shuts down when she wants to.
Does she? Once she shut down what seemed to be in the middle of a thought while walking from room to room.
Is it Warm in here? Or is it just me?
Notice, please, that Tina hasn’t actually answered the question …
“cough burp and fart at the same time?”
my niece (1st grade) had an astronaut visiting her class
“if you burp and fart at the same time in space..would you spin?”
the guy couldn’t stop laughing long enough to answer the question.
ROFL!!! Ya gotta love kids 😉
I hate how tooth paste + certain tastes creates the worst taste ever =p
Tina may well be the only character in the entire storyline to give serious thought to what the consequences would be if sex led to its natural consequence of reproduction.
But I can’t fault the others for not thinking about it, when over 90% of the population believes the whopping huge lie that 99.9% of women on the Pill don’t get pregnant.
I just love the way Shelly looks in that last panel….
