Raptor Guts: "Ulterior Motives"
Posted: Monday July 27th, 2009 by

Oh this durn comic. I wanted to have this particular panel done for Friday. The original intention was to draw Vessy and Ted at the movies together with him leaning over and basically uttering the first word bubble. But, it takes a lot of time to draw one of the "at the movies" comics because of the people in the background, etc.

So with me getting ready for ConnectiCon and then our short vacation afterwards, I just couldn't bring it together in a timely fashion Friday. Then I tried again this morning and still couldn't get the ball rolling. So, I started brainstorming how to advance the idea without having to commit to the movie theater. Office romance hinted at by way of a trip to the notorious "supply closet".

You guys have mentioned time and time again the idea of "why haven't we seen Ted's girlfriend. Well, the truth is, I didn't want a girl in his life to complicate things and distract him from gaming. **shrugs** Now that's not exactly a concern. Putting plot points together, obviously Ted is going to be drawn toward a gamer, someone that's really smart, or someone that shoos convention as if it was a pesky fly. Vessy just so happens to be all three. In Ted's book that means "perfect". Of course, being willing to add him into the HR database while simultaneously giving him some free hacker street cred doesn't hurt his opinion of her either.

And before you ask... yes; it's mutual.
