Sonny is gay. Of course Sonny is gay. He's a smart, well-educated, multi-lingual gentleman with little interest in sports, so of course he's fucking gay.

Jesus Allison, I guess we just couldn't have one character be a person instead of a stereotype. Colin's the angry Irish one. Jack is the brooding artist. Shauna's the brainy lower-class girl and Mildred is the socially aware, rich-girl vamp. I guess after no one read Scary Go Round for 8 years you just gave up.

What is your opinion of him, /co/?

I did phrase it wrong. The point was more those characters drawing people's attention, fatness or hair color focused or not, instead of the more major bomb of Sonny being with a dude.

I guess it just drew too many non-readers due to her intentionally not very attractive design.

I have no idea what this comic is about, but I seriously thought a black guy started making out with an old lady.
>>
>>77861385
I'm not good at making my point tonight. I was guessing most of the posts were nonreaders, drawn by arguments over Mildred's design, because Sonny being gay wouldn't draw any attention from people unfamiliar with the comic. It would be the same if she was overly attractive. But in either case, Sonny being outted didn't phase them because because they aren't regular readers and thus don't know there hasn't been literally any indication of it.

Not really. Scarygoround/BadMachinery threads are pretty rare around here and usually not very engaging.

I suppose I was a little pleased to see this one, just because of how confused it made me. But I'm not really disappointed or surprised only one other anon seemed to be on the same wavelength as I was.

"Pash" is definitely the sound kissing makes.
>mfw the artist is confirmed for kissless virgin
>>
>>77861613
It's a joke sound effect, anon. Pash is slang for snogging, making out, tongue wrestling, and smooching.
>>
>>77861613

Pash is the British slang for kiss. Allison does things like this all the time, when Charlotte points a finger at someone sometimes it'll say 'J'Accuse' for example.

The British will never cease to amaze me with their infinite capacity for inventing strange slang that has no logic or reasoning behind it. They just mash syllables together and assign it to a word.
>>
>>77861744
Come now, anon, Cockney Rhyming Slang is probably the most logically slang ever. At least there's a method to it. A phrase rhymes, then you drop the rhyming bit.

I mean, it doesn't make any sense, and there's no reason WHY a particular rhyme is chosen, but there are rules to it. Almost as good as just being a mumbled shortening of the phrase. Most other slang is almost entirely weird memes whose origins are lost to the ages.

He's been through this before, surely he won't be so thick as all that. He's a bright lad.

I'm going with armpit because that's inherently funnier.

>>77862127
For Sonny, very confusing.
If a gorgeous selkie were so into me regardless of coat ownership, and I didn't go for it, I'd have been pretty confused about my sexuality too.
>>
>>77862027
If there's one thing I've learned from this guys comics, it's that, over a long enough period of time, no romances work out between the major characters. It literally always ends in tears somehow.

>>77862129
mildred's on another level from tween shauna and the french girl tho
she flirts by asking
she knows what she wants better than he does and no teenage boy with two kisses to his name is gonna be ready for that shit one would think
>>
>>77861970
nah dude, sprinkles are the long tubular ones.
Hundreds and thousands are the spherical ones.
>>
>>77862172
But that was the point. He was very into her, but Sonny's not a total tool and knows you shouldn't be forcing girls to stay with you just because you happen to have their magic seal skin. What with the whole "you would not have to own me to have me" thing.

And that's also the kind of cliche that other anon was ranting about. "Sonny didn't immediately bone some girl who magically had to love him, must be gay." The whole arc for Sonny in that story was having to come to terms with maturing and him seeing it differently than his friends. Not because he's gay, but because he's not the same kind of person as they are. He didn't want to be doing all that teenager stuff like trying to impress or pick up girls. He had to deal with puberty. Then he ends up having to basically take care of this girl with no knowledge of the world and do right by her. Were he gay, he'd be having confusing feelings about bear mode seal dad or something. So I guess he's bi? I dunno. It just doesn't fit narratively to me.

Sometimes it feels like Allison needs to have weird anti-climaxes that under cut things just for the tone, and not much to do what with what makes an enjoyable or interesting story. Sometimes they are, but it often feels pointless at other times.

>Ryan and Amy
Give it time anons. Maybe they're safe because now they're side characters? Like Shauna's mom and new step-dad. They're safe because they're bit players. He seems to reserve this stuff for his mains. Eustace and so on. Look at what happened to him when he made it big and got to be the protagonist of stories.
>>
>>77862318
so Jack's either gonna run away from the assertive girl or he's gonna be the most pussywhipped boyfriend alive
>>
>>77862395
eustace actually died though which is rare
>>77862347
honestly there's nothing wrong with sonny being attracted to the selkie then and gay now. People change and sexuality is especially malleable at a young age before the indoctrination sets in.
>>
>>77862452
or Mildred might just end up tiring of his introverted ways and move on to whoever the fuck she wants

>>
>>77861218
Huh? Sonny never liked girls and was annoyed by Jack and Milton's obsession with them.

>>77861971
They are. It's going subcritical.

>>77861970
>>77861744
Well, Tackleford's in the North around York somewhere, but as a general rule the United States maintains more of the old language than the English who went through a huge linguistic shift in the Industrial Revolution and exposure to the global British Empire.

For example: we say "Fall" for "Autumn", which is buried in the old German roots of English but it fell out of use after the Revolution.
>>
>>77862318
Amy and Ryan can never split. I'll die.
>>
>>77862459
>eustace actually died though which is rare
Even if he hadn't, he loses two relationships he cared for deeply mostly to just make him miserable it seems (Ellen goes back to hell in exchange for him living, then he just dies anyway). Him getting killed offhandedly was just sort of the cherry on top.

Aside from that, the track record is pretty much "relationships fall apart one way or the other." What relationship, aside from Ryan and Amy and now I guess Tim and Shelley, actually persists? Colm and Claire? I suppose they still are in the most recent strip, sort of, but most of this past arc was them on the splits and he's still leaving.
>>
>>77862548
Linton, not Milton. Sorry, I've been up for 30 hours straight.
>>
>>77862607
I thought Shelley split from Tim
I cannot keep track of her escapades anymore
>>
>>77862548
>Huh? Sonny never liked girls and was annoyed by Jack and Milton's obsession with them.
His puberty was jump started by seeing a naked girl swimming in the sea and continues to feel an obvious attraction throughout that whole story. The complaint is that "of course the guy who's not obsessed over girls all the time like a constant parody of teenage boys is gay."
>>
>>77862634
Last I recall, they're having a baby. This was a little ways back during the end of Bad Machinery as a name for this ongoing story. I guess she is doing time travel stuff now? Fuck if I know. I never really cared for those weekend stories of hers.
>>
>>77862642
This so many times.
>>
>>77862607
colm and claire are children for fuck's sake
tim's marriage, on the other hand, was always built on the precarious notion that he had to stop being interesting (and thus, part of the story) to maintain it
amy and ryan's union really have a more substantial basis than others seen in the comic thus far
though honestly, he probably won't bring them to the forefront ever again
>>
>>77862659

Shelley's recent Time Travel story pre-famous children book author fame. Author digged some old shit from his archives or shit.
>>
>>77862642
>>77862687
Look man we all felt a lot of sympathy as straight dudes for Sonny's struggle back in the case of the fire inside but can't you just be happy for him now? At least he's getting some. "Some" that isn't mutual pity pashing or borderline-incestuous friendflirting, both of which are likely doomed to failure.

Oh I got the joke. I'm the anon you replied to and one of the complainers. It just kind of confused me. It seemed a bit much for just a simple joke, and doesn't really fit with the character thus far. Despite all the weirdness, the comic has had a pretty good sense of continuity. I guess we might get a satisfying explanation.

I followed his blog for a while, back when blogs were still a thing. I eventually stopped because he so infrequently updated.
I really admire his ability to meld drama, surreal humor and 'British' humor (esspecially seeing how obnoxious the last one is in many writters hands).
He has really great dialogue too, it feels snappy and organic even if on close inspection you realize no real person would ever speak like his characters. He's like the Aaron Sorkin of webcomics.

The joke is that Marigold has literally learnt every mystery in Tackleford and so is unsurprised by anything anymore.

Mr D on the otherhand has just seen one of his best mates having a serruptitious hand-holding session with another bloke, which to make matters worse he sees at the exact moment he has a triple strength hard-on from having just had a near encounter with a cute pyromaniac's lips, having a MANLY FIGHT and then having some serious hot and heavy pashing with a bear mode muscle girl.

It like that moment when you are watching porn, and are just about to cum, and the porn decides to switch to a close up of the ugly guy's face as he gerns in pre-orgasmic mode, only magnified by a thousand.

Marigold is however, only even more turned on, and thus the sensation of his trouser bottoms becoming wet from the puddle her nether regions is producing are slowly beginning to impinge upon his senses.
>>
>>77861432
it's pretty clear he's aiming for wrapping up this chapter of Tackleford
>>
>>77863326
The joke is that two characters were unlucky in their respective romantic entanglements this chapter. Upon meeting properly for the first time, they immediately start making out, undercutting the previous drama and set up each had tried in order to established aforementioned relationships. The humor is derived from that anti-climatic subversion of the drama thus far and the disarming speed at which it happens. On an additional level, another character is revealed to be holding hands with a boy, implying a homosexual situation of some sort. As this character had previously been shown to have no prior homosexual inclinations, the humor here is derived from its offhand revelation to the audience. Furthermore, the next panel has a character dismissing this development as obvious, deriving humor from the juxtaposition of its inexplicable nature and the character's belief that it is not so. No doubt derived from her unearthly knowledge of all dark secrets of the towns citizens, as outlined above. >>77863461

>>77863473
How many times has he wrapped up this story? I feel like he was gonna stop it back when Bad Machinery ended, but then it just kept going. This seems to happen a lot with this setting. The story is ostensibly over, but then it eventually picks back up again. maybe after a time skip.

He writes until he doesn't know where to go, then he starts over. I mean really, it's all one big strip - Bobbins/Scary-Go-Round/Bad Machinery, but they're more or less dividing lines for when he wants to shift focus.

Scary-Go-Round was supposed to be about two relatively minor characters in Bobbins, but Shelley popped in and she and Amy took over for a while. Then Esther, Erin, and The Boy came along and took over for a while (though not completely) and they did their thing until they graduated high school and he started over with Shauna and Lottie in Bad Machinery. Then there's Giant Days, which is Esther's college days (and therefore back several years on the timeline).

The problem is his universe is so big that he's lost track of some of the characters and that's caused continuity issues. He wrote himself into a corner with Erin's return and stopped. I'd really kill for more Bobbins. Tim and Ryan, Amy and Shelley. They don't have to have wacky, zany adventures anymore. Maybe Holly could stop being a mega bitch.

Didn't the main page say Bad Machinery before? Now it's just Scary Go Round. I remember back when the case of the modern men was wrapping up Jon mentioned somewhere that it was going to be the last Bad Machinery case since the characters had outgrown the initial premise. That was partly why there was less explicit mention and focus of any supernatural elements in the modern men compared to previous cases. I get the feeling he's transitioning the characters back into being branded as Scary Go Round.

Yeah but the problem from an SEO and business stand point was that he was using the Scarygoround.com domain name for bad machinery, and from a writing standpoint he'd added Ryan and Amy into the story as side characters and then had Ryan and Amy's relationship from Scary Go Round be a major plot in a Bad Machinery story, and the title never made that much sense any way and John probably just came to hate it on principle so he changed the name of everything back to Scary Go Round.

SGR after the initial Illustrator Days is absolutely GOAT.

If you absolutely have to, just skip to near the end of the Illustrator chapters and you won't miss anything.

Bobbins is too archaic to be read if you didn't read it when it came out, and it's not very good anyway.

Boring. The ceremony sucks, you can't drink enough to make it worthwhile, and the whole sleeping with horny bridesmaids thing is a lie foisted upon us by the goddamned mainstream media. Bitches are always either taken or gross. ALWAYS.

I am surprised and delighted, I thought there were only a handful of us that huddled around a sickly thread two or three times a year.

Really don't know how to feel about this one though. I was really feeling for Linton with the whole Claire business, but I guess it's just him being super thirsty lately?

Milton is... surprising. But whatever. I don't particularly care unless it heralds some kind of Korra-esque goodwill cash-in. I'm worried, but that would be very unlike Allison.

I'm most angry about Blossom getting rewarded with principle make-outs despite ruining Best Girl's life at her mom's wedding. Especially after the trouble Shauna went to, trying to bring her into the fold. She should be alone crying in her room with her dragons forever.

Jack and Mildred are dangerously close to OTP status, though. Look at this coy face. Don't blow it Jack.

I think it's because, on top of her grey hair, she's got those granny glasses, a bit of an old-wman hairstyle, and her flabby body is a bit reminiscent of the way old people's bodies sometimes go to seed.
