Been a while since a character got so emotional that reality got warped!
On that note, awesome art as always. Excellently delivering the emotions of Maura and Tess, espeicially effective at showing the latter's palpable rage (which, due to her eyes being hidden by shadow, could turn into sadness, joy, or simply more explosive anger).

Oh dear. I'm going to guess that this is the sort of thing that stresses these two's friendship for all of five or ten minutes.

I'm also assuming that the eyeless skull-mask ooh-I'm-so-mad Tess face is a manga convention.

But, basically, all as expected. Nice double(-double) fanservice in panel 1, I must say.

My only questions are these: Is she going to fix her dress or is that about to become a punchline? Will Damien or Lynn see her panties first? Who would enjoy the sight more?

Yeah. Judging by the wrinkles around her waist in Panel 4, she forgot to lower her dress back down to cover her "come bone me" panties.

This should be good.

Nope, looks like they weren't in the bathroom, just showing off to all and sundry, and she STILL hasn't yanked her dress back down :)) :)) :))

If these 2 start fighting then it's not going to really matter whether that dress is still up or down. It's likely to get shredded.

Funny that Tess is getting "fired" up since that's Maura's theme.

I've gotta' say, I'm not super invested in this very specific pair's "falling out" right now because I already read an entire arc about it in Eerie Cuties.

Honestly, if Pixietrix want to service EC fans, I wish they'd just run some EC strips.

I'm not hating this current plot thread, because it's working with a small cast of characters who've become moderately familiar and who are moderately entertaining. Ma3 has been much worse than this. (It's not just dragging a parade of pointless EC expies through for humour-free one-panel cameos, for a start.) But Ma3 has a large cast of more familiar characters, and is now running on the clock. This really isn't stuff for me to love.

Yes, but you can enjoy EC expies getting into some R rated situations without feeling guilty because they aren't teenagers in this webcomic. ;)

You can. I never cared enough about EC characters to have sexual fantasies about them.

Some also likely realized they were fictional drawn characters, so were never going to feel guilty about "Oh no! Drawn character!" :p

As for the story, agree with Spidrift. If this comic was to keep going on, it'd be one thing, we know they plan to drop the whole thing after this book.
