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.
Ace: How desperate is your situation, anyway?
X: Far too frequently, we are forced to accept 3rd and 4th order relatives, cousins, as gene-parents. The Yenta, the gene comparator, tells us how successful any pairing is likely to be. Frequently, pairings are now made on the basis of lowest probability for genetic defects, rather than higher probability for superior traits. My line has deteriorated to the point that I and all of my siblings carry some genetic defects. Three of my sisters are severely impaired. All of my brothers have aggression problems and have had their freedom restricted to protect themselves and others. In my case, there is almost no chance for normal, healthy offspring by any Orion male or even by most Terran males.
Peach: Captain to Archivist Farah.
Farah (off panel): Archivist Farah. How can I help you, Captain?
Peach: Farah, do you recall when I asked you to check on the current age for VIP subject Ace?
Farah: Hmmm. Uhm. Ah! Yes!
Ace: I can't be your only choice.
X: No. Simply the best. I'm willing to wait. I'm not so desperate as to molest a mere boy, no matter how much of a man he is.
Ace: Well, don't get me wrong. I actually find you appealing in a number of ways, but age isn't the big issue.
Peach: How did you reach the conclusion that he is 18?
Farah: Oh, I had to do a lot of research on that one. Based on the calendar date of his birth and Korean custom, starting at one upon birth, and two at the start of the next calendar year, he would be … Oops! 17. My bad.
Peach: Farah, Ace is an American.
Farah: He is? Oh.
