I won’t go into it, but I wrote and rewrote this scene so many times, because it turns out it’s pretty dang difficult to write this kind of situation well... and still make it funny! lol I tried.

This comic will now be updating twice a week! Come back on Thursday for the next page!

I could take a few minutes to ask some of my folks if we can do better. That would involve a minor brainstorm session to check if we can, and how to do it: My first thoughts are that the part that could use changing is the third panel, and to try making him slightly less awkward, but that may not be it. On the other hand, if you're trying to show a heavy family resemblance in how tongue-tied Seth is against Jon then you've already got it close to the bullseye already.

Would you like me to do that, or would you prefer instead to call this one done and over?

P.S. I'm not Seth, I really don't think he's mean enough to Jon to make this joke about him, but:

"Well, it's fair to say this means I'm clueless, but that is a surprise to me. It's not because of anything about you though, it's because of my little brother Jon. He has a tendency to crush on the unattainable ones and I'm surprised he isn't head over heels for you after meeting you that one time. Are you sure you aren't bi instead?"

Aw, thanks for the offer, but I think I'm ready to call it a day on this one. If I edited every page I wasn't satisfied with, I'd never make any new pages!

And yeah, I'm trying to get across that Seth, at his best, is quite decent at talking to people (if not terribly eloquent), but when he's flustered, he's done for. It's hard to know if Seth is like this because of hanging out with Jon, or if Jon is like this because of growing up with Seth.

Sometimes I can still hear myself talking and I'm like "why are you still talking, stop it!!"

Yeah, I’ve had “too straight to function” moments. All the frickin’ cute guys in my literary magazine class... “*swoons for half an hour* ... Wait, there’s *material* to work on!? Crap!”

Clearly it’s their fault. Being so gosh-darned handsome. They should cut that out.

... Oh, right, I’m commenting on a comic strip.

Uh, something something dammit Seth.

I was reading on the bus when the cutest guy sat down next to me and suddenly I forgot how to read...

Yeah, I've had some moments too...

Seth... If you'd've just stopped after panel 2, you'd've been fine D:

Seth should master the art of stopping talking one sentence early. Or... several sentences early.
