Maybe she should’ve just said all that in the first place…?
…but then we wouldn’t have got that gorgeous close-up in the final panel.
I’ll second that!
Its nice when a character makes the obvious argument the audience thinks of. : ) I feel like stories sometimes ignore the obvious for the sake of steering the plot in a certain direction.
Obvious wisdom clearly stated.
Maybe she should have opened with this? Maybe back when he was working with the captain?
Being awesome, standing up for your idea.
Depends on how he sees it. I can easily imagine that the way he saw things, she “waited” to use that reasoning until an argument already erupted and made his decision known to make him accept in order to not look stupid in front of his men. She is confronting him with this fact to win the argument, rather than making it an offer he accept or refuse without losing face.
The reader knows Aria a bit and that this is her fumbling around in her social situation (she has put her foot in her mouth before, right in chapter one and probably a few more imes the readers easily forgiven). The Chief might not see that and instead sees a conniving, manipulative busy-body trying to gain favour with the captain. Or possibly a boot-licker of the captain. Why else would she consult him last about this rather than first?
Yes, this is all irrational (to some extent, again, the guy might be just used to the military way being the proper way) but human beings are that. Plus, you know, reasons for drama for fiction to work.
Aria: “Oh, and to also battle the impending onset of cabin fever. And zombification.”
Just found this webcomic again, and read back through to it.
I was following it a few years ago, but lost track following a computer terminal failure; this is just one of several webcomics I lost track of following that.
The coloured pages are a nice improvement
