i suppose maybe I have to wait until the story is over but I feel like Erics character has suddenly changed? I thought Eric had a more boring and serious attitude o_O

@ AsiaticFox - Who doesn't love knitting baby animals?!

@ xkrazydog - It was a simpler time, before those newfangled MURDER SIMULATORS and hormones got ahold of him.

@ FrostedWaffle - Luffinpuff took a bullet for him pretty much.

@ fr33z3dry - Well, he's 7 here, where as most of the time he's 13 or so. I figure a number of things closed off his imagination and sense of wonder in the interim. Ahhh, the joys of "growing up."

@ h0lyhandgrenade - You were right! Luffinpuff has thwarted Eric's dad once again. Unintentionally.

Is it so hard to be a happy person who crochets baby animals AND plays murder simulators? Why don't we get characters like that? I have several friends like this, and I'm like that except I can't crochet ):

@ eishiya - Oh, it's okay, I'm like that too! I am a young adult male who knows how to knit but also plays Left 4 Dead and Team Fortress 2 sometimes.

It's important to keep in mind that Eric is a middle school kid. He has this need to find an identity and feel like an adult while not having any of the capability to do so. So naturally he turns to games as way to define himself. He sees the violence and such in games and sees that as a way of displaying how much of an adult he is. But he's still an angsty smug middle school kid.

His character is more or less a self-loathing exaggeration of how I felt back in middle school while addicted to video games. I have no problem with them now (well, most of the time), I just wish I'd done more back then and didn't let the games become my defining characteristic. Even now I get frustrated when people identify themselves predominantly as a "gamer." It's just my thing I guess!

(sorry I typed so much! I got on a kick...)

I bet somewhere off camera that old lady is morphing into a puma and getting ready to eat someone.

I am so not in denial

LUFFINPUFF I APPROVE! And I love this thing between Eric's dad and Luffinpuff. Just love love LOVE it.

Luffinpuff, can you be real and be my best friend please?

Eric's Dad needs a plan C. Though even with one, sure Luffinpuff would point something out in a innocently humorous way.

@ UpsideDown8 - I will neither confirm nor deny this.

@ baryltdf - For those of you keeping score at home!

@ Silver_Bubbles - It was the only way out!

@ Venkman Blues - Yeah, it's just too bad he doesn't have anything to spend money on since he can just IMAAAGINE it up.

@ James Birdsong - I hope you dance, James Birdsong.

@ MoreThanOnce - Yeah, it looks real cute!

@ Akiaa - H2's are equipped with ejector seats after all.

@ Loverofpiggies - It is a rivalry he does not know exists! Also, clap your hands if you believe in Luffinpuffs.

@ RazorD9 - A Plan C is coming. And you can predict how that'll turn out!

Dangit Luffpin, you're so talented. I wish I could crochet baby animals. (I can crochet, just not very well. I'm much better at sewing.)

I just noticed that the girl looks back at the car in panel 5 all confused about Luffinpuff yelling at her.

I love noticing little things like that, it's too fun.
