Hmm. A sudden rush of flashbacks. There's probably a medical term for that...

I'm still not buying any actual emotional connection with these two. I'm sure you'll write one together somehow. But, having read this comic since way back when nipples were a regular thing, I never saw a bond like what Didi is describing.

Also, when did they dress like Mario and Luigi? Outside of a Gary fantasy I mean. The only time I can remember any woman dressing like that was back when that one sex party happened where all the women were dressing in disguises to take multiple trips on Gary's overworked tongue.

When they were coming back from the strip club. They were breakaway costumes, if I recall correctly.

You're mistaken, it actually happened.

Yeah, Zii's reactions don't really ring true for me there. I mean, those were cute moments, and the pair of them were having fun - but are those really deeply emotional moments, worth crying over? Unless Zii is realising something more complicated - perhaps that she and DiDi were true friends, and hence aren't really suited to be lovers. But I'm not betting money on that.

As others have said, those were the costumes that they wore home from the strip club, after their own clothes got covered in vomit. I think that TCampbell said that was why Gary had the costumes lying around for the porn star conga line to use, in fact.

Yeah, not exactly a bond of "true love," really. At best, good friends... I recall them watching scary movies, not so much the costume thing, and was going to say I don't remember them playing with action figures - but then did remember they were messing around with some of Gary's things, which lead to an amusing mistaken belief that they broke a Transformer.

Anyway, not so sure about Zii using the term "lovemaking." Putting aside that, personally, think it is a cringeworthy phrase, it just doesn't seem like something that would be in her vocabulary.
Also, not really buying that DiDi is suddenly finding these innocuous events as "romantic." Heck, not buying Zii buying them either.... Well, just have to wait to see what happens next.

Wow, I remember the other moments better just because they were part of longer running gags and a part of a storyline for a few comics. But the costumes were such a one off that Im surprised anybody remembers those. Thanks for the refresh.

It's a term that some people do (still) use. It maybe sounds less clinical in this particular situation than most of the one-word terms for what Zii is talking about. (And am I imagining it, or has DiDi thrown the words "fait l'amour" around on occasion?)

I can believe it more of DiDi, who has an infinite capacity for self-delusion, than of Zii, who sometimes still has contact with Planet Earth. But yeah, we'll see if the next strip qualifies things.

I've always liked Zii, and I do think, as I've said before, she's genuinely in love, not just lust, with DiDi. That said, I don't ship Zii/DiDi at all, and can't see myself doing so unless DiDi is able to get past her oblivious narcissism. Otherwise Zii would just be setting herself up for more hurt.

That said, that's one hilariously adorable weepy face on Ms Nielsen there.

The best relationships have friendship at their root. That's what this one's about.

I can accept that DiDi has an emotional connection/friendship with Zii and vice-versa.

But DiDi had absolutely nothing with Gary? No warmth or emotional connection? All the past history (With both DiDi and Zii) glossed over without a second thought.

The Karma Hammer needs to hit these two, big time.
