    I ADORE her dress… *stares in admiration* Not that her other dresses weren’t beautiful, because they were! But the colours of this one are what’s especially appealing…?

    Also, more “d’awwwwww, cuuuuteeee!” moments, yay! :D

  2. Elwen says:

    Hehehe…I totally do the exact same thing with my boyfriend in front of my (very good) friends XD It’s so funny.

  3. Ali says:

    I say this almost every time I comment…but the expressions of this comic make me smile EVERY day!! I love it!! <3

  4. Alectric says:

    I’m suprised Jeremy’s so comfortable with giving a public display of affection like that.

    Also, d’awwwwww.

  5. lily says:

    Okay, that just made me all melty inside. <3

    You do a great job with the lighting, and the snark is (as always) brilliantly amusing.

  6. MOllie says:

    hahahahaha Tess = me. Everyday. This page is wonderful as always. And awesomely cute.

  7. mason010 says:

    the snarkiness is AWESOME!! Comon, you know it!

  8. sarah says:

    Favorite page yet.

    It has a lot of competition, but I think this one wins for actually making me go “awww” out loud.

  9. Lauren says:

    This comic just wins, every time

  10. Littoria says:


    I love everything. And again, the only thing grounding the time period is the phone. Well, and the dialogue, but that first panel is like an old portrait.

    And can I just say Jeremy looks damn fine in them high-waisted pants.

  11. Meg says:

    smug charlie is awesome.

  12. Seanan says:

    I like the way you’re drawing/coloring Charlie’s hair lately :)

  13. annoyedwabbit says:

    Tess’s dress is so pretty! It’s making me really want to finish the 1850s dress I started. Too bad I have about a thousand other projects with higher priority…

  14. Kate says:

    Charlies face in the last panel is so awesome. and yes they are quite the adorable couple.

  15. Wynne says:

    “Yes, that’s me! Mr. Modesty! When it comes to humility, I AM THE GREATEST!”

    The pensiveness of Tess in the first panel and adorableness of the middle are somewhat offset by Charlie’s cocky grin.

  16. Christine says:

    This is my favorite page by far!!!

  17. Dori says:

    I’m seriously digging Jeremy’s suspenders.
    And I will somehow find a way to have that dress, I swear. It’s gorgeousss.

  18. open.window says:

    ahh!!! I love, love, love Tess’s dress! Love the faces and poses in this page…

    hmmm… I’m starting to think I’ll have to start my own wardrobe of reenactment costumes, and convince my mum that they really, truly are for “work” :D Though there is no way any of my museum work is going to include an amazing dress like that… deep sigh…

  20. Angelina says:

    HAHA love that last panel!!!

  21. Yochva says:

    Oh God, I can’t be original. my fault for coming to the page late, I suppose.

    New dress. Is. Awesome. I’m making myself one that’s slightly similar – okay, it’s not. But I would die for that dress. Okay, no, I wouldn’t because then I wouldn’t be able to wear it. But oooh, I want that outfit… ;_;

    And Charlie’s hair all messed up? Perfect.

  22. iKatie says:

    Lovin the new dress. =]

  23. Grace says:

    Ok, repeating everyone else: LOVE. THE. DRESS. I so want to wear a Civil War dress one day but I’m really afraid its going to totally swallow me up; I’m tiny. Also repeating everyone: LOVE the dialogue!

  24. Stray Jane says:

    omg a new dress! yay, nice job

  25. Kess says:

    My friends do that to me… because they know it makes me feel uncomfortable.
