Oh you need drugs? In that case I'm here for ya buddy! lol. Alexander is a lot more caring that he lets on, he seems to be showing genuine concern. I knew he wasn't all bad.

sIck, May 2nd, 2011, 12:16 am

Alexander, you are so wrong if you think this makes up for what you did.

reverendjack, May 2nd, 2011, 12:31 am

is that a bottle of 'Douche Bag' wine?

Madock345, May 2nd, 2011, 12:31 am

lol, not five minutes before coming to check on this comic i was in the exact same position as alexander in panel 1, wine, book, and all.

Gibson Twist, May 2nd, 2011, 1:02 am

Jack, that is the secret name of every red wine.

Ben_ (Guest), May 2nd, 2011, 1:06 am

Oh, I love Douche Bag wine! I'm curious to see how Patrick and possibly Alex handle the apartment cost now.

Lita (Guest), May 2nd, 2011, 1:46 am

Mr. Twist, I've finally thought of a specific POY product I'd really like to see (& would purchase): Douchebag Wine stickers for existing bottles. :}

I have a different prediction than what I've been hearing a lot of.

Alexander's a bit of a douche, but not so much of one that he was just mooching off of Patrick for money and sex; the money thing was convenient, but he's not going to outright leave him because of this change. Not immediately, anyway.

Alexander will stay with Patrick at first, but now without financial assistance from his wealthy folks, at least one of them is going to need to get a job. Patrick, out of his element now, isn't going to pull his weight, now that he's flying truly solo. He won't put in the effort looking for work, Alexander will get fed up with it and then leave him, and Patrick will realize he has some growing up to do.

Ren (Guest), May 2nd, 2011, 2:04 am

And now we get a chance to really see who Alexander is. So far, we haven't seen much at all of who he is as a person; it could well be that we've got a bit of a Mr Hogan going on (that we've jumped to conclusions based on character bias tinting what little we've seen of them.)
Although, personally, I doubt it.

Oh, and on that Mr Hogan note- he is now my favourite character. By the way.

Shikamaru_Nara, May 2nd, 2011, 2:04 am

Why is he using a glass?
I always drink straight from the douche.

yayness (Guest), May 2nd, 2011, 3:15 am

See! I knew he wasn't fully evil :p Y'know we might be half a page away from finding out exactly *why* Alexander hasn't been paying his way, and it might be more to do with Patrick's pride.

Also is it just me, or is the automatic conclusion that Pat's dad beat him up kind of ... ominous.

Good Morning Everyone
it is Kotire here again for the Voters Update. TWC finally reset for the month and Pictures of You is off to a great start at #17.
Let's get everyone in on this here people and get this as high as we possibly can.

Let's see how long Alexander stays. And if the reason Patrick keeps paying for stuff was due to his own insistence.

Today's voting incentive: Not my cup of tea, but very well done non-the-less.

Until next time,
Keep on Voting.

darkamnios, May 2nd, 2011, 5:22 am

I'll roll.
Lets see what happens. Alexander 4th panel shock face is the best.

xkrazydog, May 2nd, 2011, 11:59 am

My money bag! it is covered in blood! ARE YOU OKAY?

susanowo (Guest), May 2nd, 2011, 1:12 pm

I'm still holding out on the alexander thing overall, but that is definitely real concern, or much better faking than he had shown thus far. :P
And Douche Bag wine...hah! :P (so what's white wine? :D)

susanowo (Guest), May 2nd, 2011, 1:14 pm

yeah, so I just voted... -.-;

The_Hankerchief, May 3rd, 2011, 1:50 am

Rollin', Rollin'
Proud Mary, keep on burnin'....

Kotire, May 3rd, 2011, 9:41 am

Happy Tuesday everyone,
Just dropping a line to say that Pictures of You has dropped down a step to #18 and to ask a question about something I noticed in the page just now.

Panel 2 on the bookshelf:
Is that mid transform Starscream next to that 8-Ball???

Gibson Twist, May 3rd, 2011, 9:49 am

Not Starscream, no, but you're getting warmer.

Vicki (Guest), May 3rd, 2011, 10:38 am

Question, indeed.
LOL, OMG re: the voting incentive. I don't think he did but that question did rear its little head when Mum said he was cute.

Vicki (Guest), May 3rd, 2011, 10:39 am

Have to Add
I have to add that I think this is the most emotion I have seen Alexander display to date. It's nice to see that he can emote.

randreotti, May 3rd, 2011, 1:02 pm

Tis a veritech fighter from Robotech...OR..could be Jetfire from 1st gen transformer toys before harmony gold got pissy. Just sayin' btw. Great Panel and can't wait for the next!

Maritza (Guest), May 3rd, 2011, 6:28 pm

Heads up!
I included Patrick in a small cameo today in CRFH. Hope you don't mind! I love your comic.

Gibson Twist, May 3rd, 2011, 10:28 pm

Oh, that is completely cool! Cameo! I don't know why I never put it together that you were that Maritza. Sweet! Thanks, that is a kick!

susanowo (Guest), May 5th, 2011, 1:27 am

kids these days
Starscream! Pshaw!
That be a Valkyrie, AKA Veritech for you Robotechies :P
(PS no offence intended to kids these days ;))

Gibson Twist, May 5th, 2011, 1:33 am

Actually, Mr Andreotti got it, it's a Jetfire Transformer that was modeled after the Veritech. It was, in fact, the last Transformer that survived in my possession into my mid-20s. Being a child of the 80s, I had just a shitload of first generation Transformers, but one by one, they all broke and got chucked. They really were cheap pieces of crap.

susanowo (Guest), May 5th, 2011, 8:57 pm

I missed that one (I scanned to make sure no one had offered a correct answer first, too ;>.>

But I don't feel too bad that it is essentially a Veritech. :P

I feel for your transformers loss, especially stuff like Jetfire that you can't even get a replacement of anymore.

Gibson Twist, May 5th, 2011, 9:04 pm

I replaced it all with bottles of booze that I would transform into bottles of empty.

susanowo (Guest), May 6th, 2011, 12:17 pm

and roll out! :D
