Their relationship has been strained since Matt was a teenager and they just had a very chaotic year what with Haiti and the whole arm debacle. And when Matt gets back his parents are like "get your shit and get out", and his friends gave the space he felt he was entitled to to a red haired layabout bitch. He's kind of just pissed at everyone right now. His life is shit and he really doesn't know what to do about it.
>>78902121 Can't have things be TOO dramatic, although I agree it's more interesting. But nothing in the comic is as important as the answer to the crucial question: Did Bill ever receive his order? Did he drop it off on the way to the hospital?
>>78902453 >his friends gave the space he felt he was entitled to to a red haired layabout bitch. Honestly I'm kind of waiting for that to come back up. He seems to have just let it slide but deep down it's still bothering him.
Been a while since I've read this comic though so maybe not. Is he moving out? Is he gonna live with that one trio of nerds? Is he gonna fuck the tranny?
>>78906733 He'll probably snap one day and just scream at them a bit and tell them to fuck off. I expect this to come somewhat soon, now that he has new friends that honestly treat him pretty well. Here's hoping he doesn't completely fuck it up with the new group on the way to finding out that whats-her-name is a guy.
>>78907429 til he started straight up wearing dresses I thought jenny was just a rugged MAN. named jenner. there's nothing really feminine there.. dude belongs in a metal band. even now, fuck, maybe he just likes dresses. i know i like kilts and tunics and shit
>>78906499 Well considering last time I remember, he was also angry at his actual childhood friend because of how much "He has a gf, a great life but still feels the need to act like an entitled ass because oh it's just the way he is." tho i may have read it wrong.
However, it seems he pretty much cut all conenctions to his old friends in exchange of short fatty, Tranny and Woolie.
>>78907102 >Here's hoping he doesn't completely fuck it up with the new group on the way to finding out that whats-her-name is a guy. This is exactly what I'm expecting. It's going to be a total cringefest.
The whole theme of the world seems to be "Very flawed people living life" so having a fully sympathetic character as a protagonist would not make it work too. That is why hal and others don't get that much screentime, because their personality are way less toxic and are mostly there to stop the comic to become completely unlikable.
>>78926098 It was morbid fascination with QC. The protag's romantic life was a train wreck; dumped by his girlfriend due to trust issues, said girlfriend became a lesbian, and then started happily dating his boss.
With Matthew, there might be actually interest in seeing him happy rather than if he can hit rock bottom.
>>78926490 I want Matt to earn his happiness, even if it means he has to hit rock bottom to realize that it's something he needs to do. If trying to fuck a tranny in desperation ultimately leads him to better himself, I'm all for it.
>>78930550 I don't even need to physically fuck, I just want someone I who can be my best friend who I can completely be my pathetic pervert self around without judgement... And we spend the days making art and chasing our dreams together.
>>78925964 That does seem intentional, specially after the flashback arc and with that sendoff he has between him and his father (Despite their differences, his dad still tries to make it a classy farewell only for him to sour it under his breath). I feel like they did this as a small bait-and-switch: you expected him to recieve the small bit of development Rinnie did but he didn't, because he still tries to maintain himself in his safe space (Just this time, it's replaced with his new nerdy friends) and not attempt to grow into a better person (He still is fine with not finding a job and just live off on his money from the army.).
I'm sure eventually we will have an arc in which his new friends find out how shit he is and drama will ensue.
>>78933363 Also given that reality works solely out of reaction and there is no such thing as random. Even your perception of events are predetermined from the get go, you feeling sad and alone is something that was destined to happen.
There's no one to blame because there was never a chance of it not happening.
Anyway I thought it was funny when the black guy was like "oh shit I only know videogame soundtrack music" when she asked him what he listened to, since it had been about a year since I mostly stopped listening to anime/videogame music and started listening to American music
Matt is a retard who is even more beta than my handsome, 6 foot 2 younger brother who manages to squander all his advantages being a stoner fucktard who gets spooked when girls show interest in him
Because Matt got 20,000 fucking dollars from the military and he spends several hundred on fucking hot pockets while bitching he doesn't have a place to stay. With 20,000 dollars in my old college town you could live in one of the various apartment buildings unaffiliated with the university for 20 months, assuming you only spent the money on rent. And of course if you got a roommate and only spent the money on rent it would be 40 months or a little more than 3 years.
This idiot has a car, has a bunch of money but "oh I can't move out of my parents' house because some chick took my spot" how does that make sense? How much can rent be for an apartment in a fucking smallish Louisiana town?
Matt has zero initiative and zero brains even though he more or less has the resources to make everything go his way even without having a job for a while. I just can't fathom how fucking stupid and beta you'd have to be to be 19 with your own car and 20,000 dollars having only worked 6 months doing communications in Haiti and still manage to be a giant beta fuckup for whom taking the initiative is a gargantuan task.
>>78944257 Yeah but he can camouflage himself as someone NOT embarrassing as long as he doesn't do or say anything. To strangers he just seems like a normal, somewhat scruffy guy. It's only when you talk to him a little that you realize what an embarrassment he is.
