#158 – Decision Points (NSFW-ish)

That boy is going to be a great leader some day.

Transcript

Aya: I thought you were over this point in your life. I thought you were ready to really build something with someone.
Rose: Hey, I live in reality. I can accept the facts of a situation.

Aya: Act cavalier about it if you want, but a person doesn’t invest that much time fighting for something just to walk away. You’ll realize what you’ve lost eventually.

Trevor (standing there naked): Ready for round 2?
Aya: That’s it! I’m sleeping at Xan’s house tonight.

    AW, DUDE! Really?! Put some pants on, Aya’s already going to have nightmares, and that’s when your wang was OUT OF VIEW! Congrats, you just ruined everything for her forever!

    • Jasper Janssen says:

      Well, given the “you haven’t even come ou”[t yet] comment, she might well not be into guys at all.

  2. He knows what he wants and is up to deliver.

  3. qrsouther says:

    Does her shirt say “BAND you’ve never heard of”?

    I want one.

  4. RotSman says:

    …and now the cliffhanger is “did she dive in for seconds?” I have a sneaking suspicion that we’re going to be catching up with Nate in the next strip….

  5. BunnyRemix says:

    I sense a storm coming. Aya, get to the bombshelter while you still can!

    • BunnyRemix says:

      Oh, and I’ll have you know I was biting my tongue not to make a “full moon” joke. I taste blood now.

      • Lazruth says:

        Actually, if you look at the lines there… doesn’t it look kinda like a face?

      • Dr. wonderful says:

        *Ahem* I have a list of these in case Nick ever showed someone ass and/ or have someone with a erect, which I forgot to do last time he did it.

        “Wow, he making a ass of himself.”
        “Don’t you know? Crack is whack”
        “He standing attention!”

        There are more

  6. Ashton Gilbert says:

    i like rose’s blank stare. but i’m still trying to figure out if it’s a “it’s so big” or “or so small”

    • kramer says:

      I’m hoping it’s a “is it really worth destroying my friendship and my chances with nate?” stare

      • Oberon says:

        Is there really a chance that getting busy with Trevor twice instead of once will change anything with regards to her friendship with Aya or her chances with Nate?

        Aya is sounding resigned to the situation, and Nate doesn’t know if it’s one fuck or two, and has already decided to move along just because of the kiss. So I doulbt that “It was only one fuck. He was raring to go for round two but I held back out of respect for our relationship, Nate!” could possibly make a difference.

  7. Brooklyn Red Leg says:

    Well, we knew he was a douchebag…

  8. Lazy Jesus says:

    lord give poor aya strength lord knows she needs it with These two xD

  9. Lazy Jesus says:

    actually i think the look rose has on her face in teh last panel is more one of shock i am not sure but i think she will blow him off after all aya did walk in on them the frist time

    • Jerichow says:

      Yeah, walked in on them with the first one was enough to knock her off her game. Walking OUT on her now from her own home… This needs to hit even Rose on some level or another. You can’t be in a position kind of like Rose’s without at least considering something when you make someone who lives in a house walk out on you.

  10. Stephen says:

    have to admit thought the guy is bold

  11. Jerichow says:

    Am I the only one thinking he’s not standing there just naked? I have the creepiest feeling he’s got something hanging out front covering up that’s got Rose shocked, and Aya reacting like that.

    On top of that I can’t even see Douchebag making such a bold move without having something worth laughing my ass off about.

  12. g says:

    Lol, anyone else realize the title of this panel was called “Decision Points?” Hey-o! Erection joke!

  13. Ginger says:

    Behind every naked great future leader is a bunch of webcomic readers cracking up and hoping their boss doesn’t walk by.

  14. Tia says:

    I must say, I agree with the person who said he is wearing something, but I very much doubt it’s on his wiener. I think he’s the kind of guy who likes to do it with socks on.

    and I got to say wiener!!!!

  15. Rock says:

    The boy’s an idiot, that much is for sure. If he ever does become a ‘great leader’, I hope to high Heaven that it’s of something that doesn’t have the chance to affect too many people!

    • Nick Wright says:

      You may be reading too much into my sarcasm there. :-) Try Googling the comic title.

      • Rock says:

        Ahh, that explains a few things. Heh. I never heard that ole dumbass wrote a book about his life, but I can’t say it surprises me too much. ^^

        • G says:

          “That old dumbass” is apparently smarter than the Communist douchebag currently sitting in office. But we wouldn’t know that, because the zero refuses to release any of his academic records.

          I seriously doubt that jugears would be able to fly a jet, he’s not even able to get an umbrella through a gate.

          • larry says:

            you have got to be kidding, getting in to harvard at daddy’s behest and only getting a c. In grad school that’s considered a failure. What typically happens is that the department head then has a quiet talk with the student to quietly withdraw from the program. Given that Daddy was a very important politician and donor, i doubt that conversation ever happened.

            now look at the current occupant of the office. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard Law School (the second highest honor available) in 1991. He also was the first black president of the Harvard Law Review, a very prestigious honor. you can’t get that with a c average.

            But hey, you’re entitled to your own opinion. However unlike what most of the pointy headed right wing believe you’re not entitled to your own facts.

            • Blur says:

              Why do we have to be pointy-headed? Geeze.

              Let’s face it, Obama probably has a higher IQ than Bush. Doesn’t mean I gotta agree with what he does. Heck, I didn’t even 100% support Bush and I’m a Republican.

              Obama’s also not a Communist. A slight Socialist? Maybe, we’ll never know what he truly thinks in his head. Is he running this country right? I say no, but I believe it’s been many years since we’ve had a President who did run things right.

              I do find the petty insults that each side makes to each other to be most entertaining.

            • Bill M. says:

              Oh, of course you don’t get to be the first black president of the Law Review by a C average, you get it by being black.

              First off, he had to have connections to get in there in the first place, because his time at Columbia didn’t get him honors, and having a B average at a prep school is nothing to brag about, and certainly doesn’t make him Harvard material. Also, he goes down as the least written of the Harvard Law Review presidents, having written only one note, and didn’t sign it. As to Obama’s grade average at Harvard, has enough time finally passed to where it can be released to the public? His defenders have been treating that as a higher state secret than the Groom Lake base.

  16. Wes says:

    Man, that guy is just like me. He even looks and dresses like me.

  17. The Kingpin says:

    sweet bru!

  18. Kona says:

    Not sure why Rose would be looking surprised, as she was just in the sack with this guy. Maybe that he’s ready again so soon?

    Hmmm… are we about to segue into a side story about Aya and Alex?

  19. Belle says:

    *gigglesnort* I loved this installment of Treading Ground. I am frustrated that Rose and Nate aren’t together, but I don’t think it would have worked anyway :P.

    From personal experience with some of my friends like Rose, I think they’re going to go at it again regardless. I can’t wait for the next installment!

  20. Dr. wonderful says:

    Man, now that I see this, it just make the whole damn strip Funnier.

    Also, Nick, your drawing skill increased big time, keep doing that crazy thing you do.

  21. OverlordLaharl79 says:

    I think that look is “Oh my god, do I have to be screwed by him again?!” She really is doing something stupid here(at least nate has done better with Tracy).

  22. bwilliy says:

    Makes kinda wonder what the front looks like…. /sarcasm

  23. Required says:

    Tracy Winters cheesecake ads = new readers.

    Well played, sir!

  24. chumash99 says:
