No no no, as much as your rant here makes sense, my question was, do you think that lowly of the writer that you think the writer will forget a plot point he made in his story? What you listed there is not that the writer forgot a plot point but the writer merely decided not to dwelve into those part of the story... forgetting a plot point is more like "I killed (person A) yesterday" *Then 30 strips later* "I talked to (person A) this morning"... this is more of a "forgetting a plot point" cos the author forgot that he had killed (person A) and then had the protagonist talk to the person A he killed 30 strips before without any storyline that resurrects (person A), that is forgetting a plot point.Spidrift wrote: ↑Fri Feb 23, 2018 10:56 pmMuch as I like the writing here — and I really do — I can’t entirely forget that (a) Dave also writes Dangerously Chloe, which I, shall we say, don’t rate quite so high, and (b) Menage à 3 has had one or two narrative inconsistencies over the years. (Off the top of my head, just for a start, in no particular order: How much time has passed in-comic since it began? Is it ever winter in Montreal? What happened to Yuki’s father after his one appearance? Where did Gary go while Zii was bonking Angele? What were the other two members of Zii’s old band doing when Zii was working with Angel? How long did it take for Dillon and Amber to prepare, rehearse, and shoot their entire first film? Does the supposedly smart Matt remember that he swore off women? How long did it take Sandra and Senna to fly from Canada to Brazil? Did anyone really believe the things that Tatiana said to make DiDi go back to Canada?)
So yes, if you really want to know, I think that it’s possible that the other characters might just quietly forget a blatantly implausible thing said by Sandra in a moment of excitement, if it helps the story along.
As of yet, most of what is pointed out is more like, "Where did that guy go?" and "What happened to this guy?" which isn't really forgetting a plot point but merely not going into details about those particular things.
Now, f Dave were to write in the next few strips that Sandra and all the other characters "forgot" (ignored) that Sandra said Pierre is dead, then, yes, Dave forgotten the plot point. But thanks to this discussion, we will never know if Dave forgotten it or not cos this whole thing will remind him of it ^o^
