in page=1786, I don't think Diana is directly inviting Aerum to a joint shower, though she is flirting and leaving the possibility open. She wants a bodyguard in case someone comes back.

Dong, at least, notices this flirting.(last panel page=1786)

Aerum is a mixture of cool compliance, yet with some Portanglish literacy gaffs. Some of those "misunderstandings" may be feigned.

My point is more that Areum is saying what seems like a fairly clear lack of interest at the minimum. Diana probably shouldn't have started by directly inviting her to a shower on the first day they met while swimming in her own vomit, but shes had a few better attempts since then that haven't gone any better. Sure she has needs, but that doesn't give her the right to keep propositioning someone who isn't interested.

Wook shows some inkling of being a bit more than just a large bumbling, inexperienced bodyguard.

(In a world where you could become a neo-rooster, a furry, or have green skin and an Orion bellydance body, why would anyone want to look like an inexperienced, bumbling bodyguard? Is extra mass useful in hand-to-hand combat in freefall?)

Wook is not piloting, but we know from prior dialog that Areum is a better pilot than Wook. (page=1827)

I have to assume that for story purposes, Diana is about to try something without keeping her bodyguard in the loop. This is  generally what I consider a "bad idea", but makes for a better story from our perspective.

Title is a nod to a joke once told by Steven Wright, though while trying to find the reference, I found a tvtropes page.

Well, the thing is that Areum hasn't said "NO".

Diana has been hinting and Areum is either ignoring the hints or not getting the hints.

Now earlier it appears that Areum is new to Oz and wasn't a native Spanenglish (?) speaker so she might not be getting the hints.

On the other hand, Areum may be getting the hints and being a professional body-guard is ignoring the hints because a professional "doesn't have sex with the person he/she is protecting".

On the gripping hand, Areum may be happily married (thus not wanting to have sex with Diana) but is unwilling to hurt Diana's feelings by "rejecting Diana's overtures".


Well it's not like she can afford to go trolling bars for a new sex partner, being a hunted woman and all. Anyone she picks up could be a spy/mole/assassin for her enemies. She really has no choice but to stick with what's at hand.

Yeah she probably shouldn't be thinking about that until this case is resolved and she's got Smith & Holder off her back, but people have needs and who says she'll even live that long?

She is 157 years old! Holy cougars Batman!
Having an infinite lifespan certainly kills the "half your age+7" rule. I wonder what is considered generally acceptable by now. Diana objected to this gap, but her societal norms aren't necessary the same as the rest of Bubbleopolis. I seem to recall that Alyss was concerned that Eithine was hooking up with someone so much younger than her as well.

I remember it being the other way around, so much older, as in Murphy.
In any case, I read it as simply "not good enough for my friend/relative", by any available excuse.

Blast from the past:  https://www.quantumvibe.com/strip?page=56

John Jonah Jameson, Jr. minus cigar, mustache, +4 extra arms.

I don't know how I missed it, but at least the two-tone hair is a homage.

Actually, it's the late Jack Kirby, the cartoon illustrator who co-created The Hulk, Thor, Captain America, The Fantastic Four, and other comics icons in partnership with the more-recently-late Stan Lee. But then I believe Jameson was modeled on Kirby as well (by the not-yet-late Steve Ditko, co-creator of Spider-man and Doctor Strange).
