An online comic about Ace. A young geek that's too nice for his own good. All he wants is a regular life and a regular girlfriend. But he knows that isn't going to happen. – CGI – Adult situations. Artistic nudity. Not suitable for children or Fundies.
Maggie: No, I mean the attention. Maddie was literally all over you from the start, and the rest stripped naked right in front of you. Luna's the only one that didn't go out of her way to let you see anything.
Ace: I know what you mean, and my original answer stands. But, yeah, I'm a healthy guy and they're all nice looking. So, yes, I do peek. I don't stare, though. I've been told that part of my appeal is that I'm their friend first. I'm content with that and I don't push for anything more.. And so they feel comfortable around me.
Maggie: You know most guys bitch about being in “The Friend Zone.”
Ace: There is no “Friend Zone.” Any guy, or girl, that bitches about being “just a friend” isn't a friend. They're just being nice in the hope of getting something more. If one has ulterior motives about it, one can't be a true friend. Usually that type ends up getting used, and I feel sorry for them, but not a lot of sympathy.
Ace: If you think about it, your typical sweet talking Lothario is really more honest than the “Nice Guy Friend” that is also out to get into a girls pants.
Maggie: Sensitive subject, huh?
Ace: I've been left with some difficult to overcome trust issues, thanks to that sort. I do draw my share of unwanted attention. The women, and occasional guy, that don't want to take “No” for an answer are actually easy to deal with. But people that use friendship to camouflage their real intentions are often hard to tell from real friends. And those relationships always ended acrimoniously. Worse than the time I got my nose broken when I broke up with a girl when I was going to Korea for a year. I kind of had that one coming.
Maggie: OK. You're good. You can keep having sex with my sister, but if you ever break her heart, this world isn't big enough to hide you.
Ace: Y'know, I think we're going to get along just fine.
