I think the pegging is from the frustration of her plans coming together then falling apart at her victory

Ah, yes... Effort in the writing, something that the spin-offs seem to, overall, severely lack.
SDB puts the biggest share of effort into the characterisation. SotR puts it into the jokes. Ma3... one sometimes gets the impression of two writers fighting over a pen.

He's a teenager?! I thought he was at least 20...
Uh, he’s at school, and even wears a uniform a lot of the time. Not sure how you ever got “20” from that.
Yeah, SDB does put effort into characterisation, though I categorise it as "lacking" since it ended up seeming like a task too big for the creators to properly develop, so it fell into limbo for a year.

SotR jokes are predominantly subpar, thus the effort can be considered less than ideal.

Ma3... Can't argue with you there - the whole "Bianca being a spy" shtick came out of left field and went nowhere. Even so, the writing (around important characters, anyway) is mostly solid - regardless of some arbitrary genre flips and repeated jokes.

I didn't get he was a teenager because he looks generic young adult aged. As for the uniforms, I don't remember them; I apologise for not recollecting, though considering the sporadic update schedule and the artist getting injured (can't fault anyone for the latter), it has been so long since a school setting that I forgot, so presumed he was a university student. Although, it is arguing a pedantic point because he is being raped through deception either way, and his teenage status merely adds to the creepiness rather than creates it.

I think If Alex found out the next day that Eloise and her "male cousin" are the same person and she with Nadine did all this to get back at Sandra, he would be pissed about everything but the sex-with-hot-women part, I could be wrong but I don't think rape through deception applies here.

This reminds me of Gary's face when he found out that Didi was using him as rebound sex (and to reach l'orgasme). That was the "doesn't matter had sex (with Didi)" face...

Not to mention his expression after he found that Amber had tricked him. Which arguably was every bit as bad as anything Eloise and Nadine did here.


I'm really not sure it's wise to talk about issues of consent in the Ma3 universe. That conversation never ends anywhere good.
