That... wasn't bad. He handled that with a lot more sensitivity and tact than I expected.

And he's treating Oasis as a fellow human, an equal. That's a big improvement over treating her like a psycho gymnastic assassin robot.

Going on the offensive, even! GO TORG! You tell that psycho gymnastic assassin what's what!

I have been waiting 8 and a half years for this conversation.

To say I'm stoked would be putting it mildly.

What? Those two having a mature, adult conversation was... not what I expected.

I agree! "Let's talk about the fire" indeed.

"Let's talk about the fire." That IS a burning question.

Let's not stoke the flames, she is already hot-tempered enough.

Is this the first time the two of them have actually had a real conversation? It's... nice.

I also like the take on a sort of "self-aware robot" mentality for Oasis.

I don't know if anyone has pointed it out yet, but Oasis is wearing his sweater.

Although this is not inside the strip but rather word-of-god: friend 3 in the ref list is Bun-Bun.

Torg sees Bun-Bun as friend?

That is a little more upfront than I expected and Torg didn't panic trying to explain himself. Sure, he still isn't going to tell Oasis that he loves Zoe, but that is probably for the best.

Well, things just got more nuanced. I think.

And I don't think it's weird that he considers Bun-Bun a friend (well, not weird in the context of everything else that's gone on in this storyline).

Reading it again, I'm wondering if they are both talking about the same fire...

Ah yes, the week is still long enough for a wacky misunderstanding to pop up!

Quite possibly, I was thinking the same

I'm hoping this good well. It feels great seeing then finally talk after all these years
