Comedy. Soap opera.

So I would say "no", except that there are actually one or two relationships that don't seem to be in danger yet.

Anyhow, Angel has actually played this okay so far, apart from the unfortunate matter of keeping it secret from Jerzy. It's been a dinner with a friend, ending in an affectionate kiss but no more than that. The fact that she has (admitted) impulses to go further doesn't make it cheating.
And really, considering that Jerzy isn't even comfortable enough in their relationship to admit to himself that they even are in a relationship, I don't think he'd have much of a leg to stand on if he were to find out.

I think that Jerzy has just about accepted the situation now. He said as much to Dillon, last time they met.

It's Montreal in the Ma3 Universe... Everyone knows each other, everyone does everything within a 10km radio, everyone is attractive (even the ones that are written as repulsive are really not ugly, more like normal-looking) and everyone is between 1 and 5 in the Kinsey Scale (except Dillon who is a really solid 6)...

Why? Angel didn't do anything bad here.

More importantly, Zii would be a massive Hypocrite if she said anything, considering she cheated in a worse way.

You could be right, but I'm thinking a kiss on the lips, let alone a lengthy one like what we see (in the upper right panel they both have their eyes closed and are still kissing) would count as cheating to a lot of people.

Mmm. That kiss is ... dangerously long and serious, by the look of it. But still, (please remember this) a kiss is just a kiss (a sigh is just a sigh)... If Jerzy saw this, he'd be entitled to ask questions, and Zii is entitled to jump to conclusions. But if Angel backs off now, smiles ruefully, and says "that's enough", then harm would still be averted. Aside from the little matter of the witness.

It's easier to forgive a kiss though.

The ending of the entire amalgamated Ma3 world is probably a breakthrough of Queen Anastasia, a renewed sack of Montreal, and Ramona and Jung standing on the smoking ruins, coming to the realization that they must now repopulate the world. :D

There's that, but Zii might want to look before leaping. If this date makes Angel more pleasant to deal with why mess up a good thing?

Zii isn't exactly dumb, but she's not a long-term thinker either. A lot of her story in these comics is about her learning that the way to deal with the consequences of her actions is not just to run away. But she's not there yet, so she'll probably take the quick profit here. Angel has been an ass to her; time to return some pain.

And anyway, she doesn't have to turn this into a big "revenge is mine, bwa-ha-ha" production number. She just has to show up to the meeting giggling, and tell Dillon what she saw.

Ah, well, my plotline involved a fictional (even in the Ma3-Verse) character smashing down the fourth wall and bringing forth the legions of hell... Making Ramona's insides less screwed and conventionally fertile should be the least of problems. :))

Okay, okay, I admit I did not think of that and am just waving my hands wildly here!

Agreed. If Zii does decide to reveal what she saw, it will probably be something small-scale and immediate. Every zany scheme we've seen her pull before has been a short-term solution to a problem that may not have been short-term, and she seems to really - to use a tired phrase - live in the moment.

Chances that Ms. Nielsen will try talking to her nemesis to make sure what's going on and/or refrain from immediately trying to screw her over... probably 0%.

Thus leading to the next stage of their fued, if Jerzy does indeed drop Angel like a hot potato and her heart is consequently broken.
My comic, Res Mira, starts here.

The crazy will bust loose. Either in the stories or on the forum. Or both at the same time.

Mad theory: Eulice is actually a retired succubus. This explains why she says DiDi Chastel looks like she did in her younger years. She maintains her current form because it allows her to get through her day without having to turn down sexual advances.

A busty redhead by decree of the Internet...? o.o;
