#162 - The Reunion 4

Polyamory is something that a lot of people still struggle to understand. it's a concept that goes against a lot of established social norms after all. Not everyone is going to accept it but that's okay. You don't need anyone's acceptance to know that your love for another is valid.

Poor, poor Iris. Yeah, seems like things certainly did not seem to go as well as the group hoped it would. Though I'm sure that this wasn't entirely unexpected. Still, it's not fun, to say the least.

Iris went in knowing very well that this reaction was the most possible one. After all, she's known her parents long enough. I feel as though for Iris... and arguably anyone in her shoes, this is one of those situations where it was gonna suck no matter what.

Ooooooof...ooooooooofff... Well the parents can't all be as cool as Irene. I am glad Iris has a great support network though.

I thought it was super important to showcase that. Support is crucial in situations like this and can very well determine how hard one gets hit emotionally.

Ok, got to admit the dialog felt a bit like a gut punch. It usually goes on a lot longer than that, as it's drawn out over a much longer period -- sometimes years -- but this is a perfect summary of it. Well done! (Full support for Iris, John, and Sebastian, of course!)

Thank you so much! Mason and I wanted this scene to be impactful but at the same time not dominate the storyline for too long, we're happy to hear that its effective. You're absolutely right too, these kinds of situations rarely end so quickly and while it won't be center stage, we'll be letting our readers see how it turns out. I think it's fair to say it'll take a while. (Also Iris, John & Sebastian appreciate your support!)

I have nothing to add to the keen observations above, except: As a redhead, if I knew Iris' nickname was "Pumpkin" I'd have been using it forever!

Yeah maybe don't dunk your face or other parts of your head in melted cheese?

You underestimate some people's hatred for that song. I speak from personal experience >.>

Family fights are super not fun...but not everyone can accept others all the time :(

It's so very, very true. RTS is all about nerdiness, fun, love and acceptance but it's hard to deny that there are just some people out there that just don't understand or aren't open-minded. I felt it's important to include those kinds of people because they're very real and it hopefully keeps our comic grounded in a way.

Totally agree!
