You Forgot Something (NSFW-ish)

You Forgot Something (NSFW-ish)

And so concludes our Not Safe For Workweek. But fear not, Monday’s comic is also NSFW-ish, and there’s more to come. Stay tuned!


Nate: Looked like you were busy.
Rose: Who do you think I was doing that for?

Nate: Yourself?
Rose: YOU, dumbass. I’m trying to get a reaction, positive or negative, and all you do is go out for a smoke.

Nate: This shit isn’t EASY, you know. It’s not as if I don’t like you.
Rose: Then just get over it! We’ve been in this weird holding pattern for six months thanks to this.
It’s not even about the sex anymore! We can’t ADVANCE our RELATIONSHIP.

Nate: That statement might be lent a bit more authenticity if you had pants on.

    Six months?

    Felt like seven years to me.

    This comic…has so much win…its hard to deal with all the win…its like a web comic and slight erotica in one…its more or less satisfying every thing my internet is used for. though rose looks like my sister…which is always the strange part…even more so because Nate looks like her BF…

  3. Jonathan says:

    Me again. One of those rare situations for me where I am like everyone else and just yelling ” Dude! Kiss her and fuck her already! Just do it!” hehe.

  4. qrsouther says:

    I just had a thought that Nate kind of looks like a grown up version of Timmy from Fairly Oddparents.

  5. tWiCHY says:

    hooray please keep up the NSFW action, it’s awesome, and also HOORAY for thongs

  6. David says:

    Isn’t she cold in a thong? And why do I care?

  7. tWiCHY says:

    hehe i see some camel toe action goin on in the last panel

    Who says a relationship can’t advance like that? Rose is just sex starved and Nate knows that. My husband and I when we first met i was 15 and he was 18, he waited 3 YEARS for me to be legal b/c thats what you do when you truly care and are afraid of legal reprocussions. :P I have a bitch mom, she woulda killed him. While Rose’s mom is vastly different, Nate still knows better. I’d commend him on his strength were he a real person. ^^

    • Jonathan says:

      You’ve said that before in previous comments. I don’t that to antagonize you. Merely stating a fact. In his specific situation the argument of Rose is sound though. The only person who cares (her mother) does not. So really it’s on him. I think he should just relent and let her know how he feels and be with her.

    Wow… this comic is just full of win(and hot girls).

  10. Willard says:

    I have to agree with Nate. It would be far easier to take her seriously with pants on. Other than that, seriously funny.

  11. Suede says:

    I humbly request more NSFW weeks/strips. They’re fantastic and always hilarious, lol.

  12. Ray says:

    poor Nate, giving himself an extreme case of blue balls, her mother dont care, Rose dont care, Nate should just relieve himself

  13. Datenshi says:

    Just putting this out there. But in MOST states in the US legal age of consent is 16 or 17. Of the 13 states where it is 18, 5 of them the age drops to 16 if the age difference is less than 4 years. Though since he is 22 that part doesn’t really matter. But still, there are 37 states (D.C. included) in which their actions would be legal.

  14. pbr says:

    “positive or negative” made me laugh.

    when i was in like 6th grade and they decided we should learn about numbers less than zero, my math teacher abbreviated “positive or negative” (in huge letters on the board) “P. or N.” and we all got a good laugh :D

  15. Akuji says:

    my god how hard to you have to stare at her crotch to notice the hint of camel toe? As for the pants thing… wussy. so she doesn’t have pants on? barring another incident like the one that drove a certain bagger into a frenzy, he is at fault for that one. also, Datenshi I didn’t know that. that’s fascinating.

  16. Chris says:

    Well, at least she isn’t showing her pink stuff anymore. That’s progress of a sort. :)

  17. Taiming says:

    Taco Time or is it too soon to say that?

  18. Chris says:

    Ha ha, I guess I forgot something too!

  19. Pete says:

    While I think there are some really funny bits in the strip, you have dilemma on your hands.

    Sexual tension is what makes things interesting. The whole “will they/won’t they” thing.

    However, once the tension is gone, what replaces it?

    As examples, look at Tony/Angela on Who’s the Boss or Ross/Rachel on Friends.

    The tension and awkardness is what made the shows funny. Once the tension was gone, the show’s proverbially jumped the shark. It was the beginning of the end.

    Because, as pointed out by other comments, by 17 the woman is at the age of consent in most states. I am not sure where this is supposed to take place, but assuming it’s in an 18-AoC state, now what?

    I am note sure what sort of road map you have for the strip, or the other characters, but it’s never to early to start some story arcs.

    BTW – my wife loves the term “floordrobe”

    • Nick says:

      Thanks, Pete. Without giving away anything, let me just say that I have a pretty solid roadmap for where the comic is going. I’m keenly aware of the challenges you’re describing and I think you’ll enjoy what’s to come.

  20. Eric says:

    Pants? We don’t need no stinking pants!

    Down with pants!
