Anna can be pretty incoherent when she’s angry.

Playing it safe and putting NSFW up there. Nothing explicit, I just imagine you wouldn't want your boss to see you looking at this one on your lunch break or whatever.

Now would be a good time to put back on your clothes, guys.

My prediction for next page: Seth, half-naked, climbing out of the window and then down the gutter...
(After all, that's a classic! Just that it's usually the husband instead of the roommate coming home...)

Well, might as well stay in Gemma's room until she leaves or falls asleep.

That would be the smart thing to do! Whether they do that or not...

If Anna wants to play the insane, jealous girlfriend on Seth she might be due to tell Paul it's now a threesome and actually play the girlfriend role enough that it's justifiable. Or, potentially, choose instead to *NOT DO THAT* and not do that.

The NSFW warning almost hides at the top of the page, but I suspect it's big enough considering the level of NSFW involved so far. I appreciate the consideration of the warning at least, but I must confess it isn't something I need too badly. In the course of my real, actual-job work I have seen, dealt with, and had to describe in detail... somewhat more embarrassing things.

If only all romance plots could be solved this way...

Also huh, I guess I misjudged my site's code and how the NSFW note would show up. I'll have to do some tweaking.

I won't ask the details of your job, but at mine I have to write about (and look up) a lot of poop stuff, so yeah.

"I know that the wives and concubines of a polygamist guy with more than one is called a harem, and that the sociological term for the reverse phenomenon to polygamy is called polyandry. What I don't know is what the term is for that reverse-harem thing for the lady's husbands. Anime calls it a male harem, a reverse harem, or a guy harem, but those terms all suck and I want a better word for it."
"You want a term for a reverse harem?"
"Yeah, I tried looking for one but couldn't find it."
"It's a merah."
"Where did you find that?"
"You just gave it to me, a reverse harem, a merah."

Is that laboratory pathology? The patient-facing and -diagnosing parts of medicine are great for learning of the weird, wild, and wonderful ways people can be daft, dim and bonkers. Triage nurse is probably better misanthropy development training than most other things a person could do.

I like merah! Though I've been a little confused about the anime terminology since most "harem" anime I would actually describe as "reverse harem" because it's a guy who wants to be with one girl, but lots of girls want him, as opposed to one guy wanting lots of girls (wives)... if that makes sense.

If it only involved three people it would be called a love triangle, and I would agree it's a misuse of the word "harem" when the ladies are competing for exclusive monogamy with the common object of desire. This pokes at another gender imbalance of English because the comparable otome-game situation could be called a swarm of suitors but there is no neat, tidy and common one word term for a female suitor: I've literally seen 'female suitor' used.

My advice is to use suitor gender neutrally, like the way actor is replacing actress. This will allow us to call both those kinds of situations a suitor swarm, with the bonus feature of allowing us to confuse otome content and "harem" content together with the same term.

Yeah, I agree suitor could do with being used neutrally. Though it is a bit of an archaic word at this point, it still has its uses!

The gag for this page is a classic trope: "you're in trouble", "how bad could it be", and then the third person conveniently does something that shows how bad it could be. This isn't new. But the execution was exquisite! The way her threats built and evolved, and then the twist that it was her own mother she was speaking to.... !

And then the little cherry on top is his insistence on using non-swear words so he says the weak-tea "I'm fricked". LOL.

Thank you! I'm glad it landed well! Especially the "I'm fricked" I felt like I had to XD

A true fact about me: I have trained myself to use weak swear words by default. If a swear word slips out from my mouth in the presence of children or ladies, I want it to be something tame.

I get most of my tame swear words from SF. I non-ironically yell "Frak!" when I'm upset about something. "Gosh darn heck" when I'm really upset.

The original Battlestar Galactica TV show never really gave any context to know what the word might mean, but the remake included dialog like "You're the one who's frakking her" so it's pretty clear it's the BSG-universe F-word.

P.S. Even I am not geeky enough to use the word "feldercarb" though.

I recommend FSCK. It's an acronym for File System Consistency checK, and it's a utility used in *nix environments to attempt to resolve inconsistencies and attempt to recover from data damage to a file system (I.E. hard drive problems, messed up shutdowns). When used inaccurately it may imply that a person or situation is messed up and in need of repair.

Daytime TV in general is great for non-swears. I actually got "frick" from Scrubs, as it's so overused in that series!

This requires a military term here. Seth is FUBAR. Like, major.
