Knight Errant

On doing the wrong thing for the right reasons.

Welp, this isn't turning out like she hoped.

....

Or is it?

...

No, no it isn't.

"Was it good for you?"

"Fuck you!"

Why yes, dear boy, that IS what she wants. She raises point too, can't really be "Self Destructive" the way she went about it.

Sounds like Kratos has possessed Erin to me. At least she isn't getting possessed by Mario, now that would be embarrassing.

Hmmm sympathy for Erin fading, fading, fading and gone.

I was with her when she threw the Xbox and started drinking but now...I can't feel sorry for anyone but Tris.

I can no longer see where this plot thread is going... Maybe it ties in somehow with the nuns....

Is Erin Stout turning into Mala Singer? : /

And then they had angry make-up sex.

This comic was not conducive to my going a day without having to correct someone's grammar.

At least the teapot is conductive, or we'd have a real problem.

She is really spiraling into one of the most unlikable characters in webcomic history. I have no idea whatsoever why that guy hasn't just kicked her out, or why he even backed her up in whatever offscreen fight with random nobodies.

I'm loving this series more and more for every episode. Although I do miss the appearance of the bear guy.

Well it didn't take long for this to turn dark. I don't see how this is still going to be a comedic series unless a new character replaces Erin after this arc but keep pressing on, I want to see where this goes.

How is getting going out of your way to get a black eye not self destructive? And what about alcoholism?

You know, Erin might be a bit of a bitch.

...RUN, TRIS. RUN AS FAST AS YOUR LEGS WILL GO, THEN GO A BIT FASTER.

erttheking:

You know, I was going to say exactly the same thing. Stop reading my mind.

Well the good news is that she doesn't seem to see game characters anymore.

Bloodtrozorx:

To be honest, when she first asked Kratos what course of action to take back when they were talking about ME3's multiplayer, I kinda started loosing sympathy. The throwing of the Xbox, fallowed by the throwing of Erin out the door, I was basically out of sympathy.

Now im watching this in the same way one would watch an accident happen, with morbid curiousity.

Oh, and just because:

Qitz:

I dunno, drinking, promiscuity and fighting all in the name of emotional repression sounds pretty self-destructive to me.

erttheking:

Well, she did warn him, but yes. I also think it's quite refreshing that he's actually calling her out on her bullshit, rather than him being exactly the kind of knight in shining armour she (and I) expected him to be. There's got to be a point where it doesn't matter how many issues they have, you've just got to say "Fuck you".

Of course, this entire arc is going to hinge on how her character develops at the end of it all. If nothing happens, or what happens is cliched and predictable, then it was all just a huge waste of time. But for now I like where this is going.

It is like she is a shadow from Wraith: The Oblivion.

Just when I thought this storyline couldn't get anymore boring - it did.

read the comic, it's only self destructive if you're a pussy.

Wow, Erin is getting to a point where even I struggle to sympathize with her dickishness. And I never thought I would say that.

rayen020:

I did and consequently I disagree with Erin, as is becoming the case more and more frequently lately.

Mmm.
How long would it take for your boss to fire you when you ran around jumping on their flowerbeds and kid's turtles?

Erin seems to be turning into a parody of herself in this page, being a bitch just for the sake of being a bitch. Throwing an Xbox at someone because Kratos said so is funny, but she's ramped the "I'm being mean because I like you" thing up to ten.

Tris, don't forget the number 1 rule: don't stick it in the crazy.

I like how ever since he appeared, the guy is slowly starting to resent even meeting her. A cool well meaning prince charming ripe with witty comebacks and an optimistic attitude ends up devolving into "Man, fuuuck yoooouuuu".

Is it Tsudere if you acknowledge that's you're being bitchy to a person you like?

Especially after she's arrested for bouncing on that dude's head.

They set her up!

Psssh. That's liver destruction. And the liver isn't part of your self.

Just make a damn flashback already.

Umm, not really one to push things like this but...... Just fuck already and end this arc. There, now I feel strange.

True, and I suppose Erin is right when it comes to drinking: being a black-out drunk can indeed end-up being self destructive for a pussy, especially her own!

what the hell's happening to my girl?

she's gone from comedy interludes with gaming hero's to getting the crap beat out of stanger men who just wanted to buy her a beer!

I've lost all interest in Erin.

Wow, people do have high standards. I guess that implies people really cared about her character in the first place though.

Loving this story arc personally. Erin's been through a lot and has become disassociated from reality and her social ties. She seems incredibly lonely to me. I don't know if they'll take it that far but this sort of thing is literally a psychosis. I think she needs someone to help pull her back to reality and show her the things she does have a real impact on the people she cares for and the world around her.

Can't wait to see what happens. Keep them coming!
