by kidcthulhu
Welcome to Tangentville, a place where mundane people and the strangest assortment of oddities cross paths on a daily basis. Hijinks ensue. You're just as likely to bump into a extraterrestrial or an ancient deity as you are the slacker from down the street. And did we mention it's in New Jersey?

Tangentville isn't so much a place as it is a state of mind. Come for a visit...

At least she probably had an interesting evening?

@kidcthulhu: Oh dear god you're in for a treat :)
@Shepard Solus: This is why I stick to tabletop gaming...
@Linn: Cassie likes men way too much for that to happen ^_~
@Linn: Rick and Morty is on my "I have to watch this eventually" list ^_^
@kidcthulhu:
It can be. I've been accused of "feeding" (giving the enemy lots of experience & gold through frequent deaths) by actual friends for simply being the first to die several minutes in. Only even happened because the enemy sent two extras heroes to flank the the middle lane (normally it's 1v1 there until the mid game).

Though not by friends, I once got *reported* in spite of carrying the whole damned team to victory (Templar Assassin is a beast if you can get just a little ahead with her) simply because I had a few deaths as a result of being the spearhead of every push throughout the game (we're talking 1 death for every 8 or 9 kills). Some people turn into freaking monsters when they play MOBAs, expecting absolute perfection from everyone but themselves. I don't really understand it, myself.
Maybe these two should consider dating? :p they seem like married already.

For some reason this entire thing reminds me a bit of Birdman in Rick and Morty, not sure if you've seen it, but they live basically in a universe with characters that 'looks and acts' like a different species and alien race, but still sort of hangs out with humans- making hilarious outcomes.
Haha awww, I feel you Birdy
@ERA: I suppose playing cards are easier to carry & set up than, say, 1875 points worth of Imperial Guard models.
@Shepard Solus: Is Dota that much of a friendship destroyer? I've never played it.
@kidcthulhu:
Dota Dating. If you can enjoy each other's company after three straight rounds, there's something real there.
If the round robin format seems better for gaming, why not have the best of both worlds? Bring a pack of cards and go fish! Oh, and also play go fish with the cards.
Part four of "Speed Dating".

I think this is the most dressed up we've ever seen Ronnie. She's usually much more laid back looking.

...and her first date is a known super villainess. That should be a pretty big omen for the evening.

Part three of "Speed Dating".

We're deep into the continuity now; this is referencing #174-Waiting For Ronny. It's easy to forget these two have so much history.

Part two of "Speed Dating".

This one has a call back to #363-Volunteered ^_^
It's always the mothers that you REALLY have to watch yourself around. No one in my family has half the scalp count that my grandmother does. She earned her throne through wit, grit and a bloody yardstick (the traditional weapon of the warrior woman).
@kidcthulhu:
Wouldn't stop me from throwing my wallet at the kid in the ticket booth to see him try. I think I could die more or less content after having heard Ron Perlman call someone "onii-chan" in a high-piched voiced while dressed in a sailor fuku.

Today starts a new arc that's centered around Tangentville's resident lesbian hairdresser, Ronnie Delet.

Speed dating always sounded weird to me. I mean, I get that meeting someone can be hard and it only takes a few minutes to see if you click with someone. But the whole round-robin format seems better suited to a gaming tournament than romance.

@Jenny: Agreed. Birdy wears her heart on her sleeve and is terrible with first impressions, but she's not a bad person.
