483 – Warming Up

483 – Warming Up

Looks like ponies put WiredWolf in a good enough mood to extend well wishes. Renold’s choice of expression of gratitude is unfortunate.

If you got a glimpse of the original Cast Bio Book quite a while ago, you would have seen that Renold’s birthday is March 6th. I should have done something for Lyta’s birthday on February 10th, but I was a little preoccupied with a certain event.

  1. A part of me wants to hit Renold for his response

  2. Sejanoz says:

    You IDIOT, Renold.

  3. Mage of Chaos says:

    Pray for an immediate apology, lest Jordan decide she’s never going to talk to him… or just end him.

  4. werekitty13 says:

    I want to smack him in the face with a Pinkie Pie.

  5. Psychlycan says:

    It seems that he has the problem of instinctively being a jerk, but secretly wanting to be nice. Must have been a problem where being a jerk is the only answer.

  6. Psychlycan says:

    It is always easy to hate the jerk that you don’t understand the reasoning for.

  7. mightycleric says:

    It appears that Renold just isn’t used to receiving kindness, and as a result he has honed his instincts to lash out in order to protect himself, with any shows of feelings being perceived as weakness. Now, though, he finds himself struggling with how to react to people who are genuinely nice people, and who won’t crush him for being a real person.

    This in no way condones his behavior, as he is old enough that he should be able to handle things better, but at least this comic shows a bit of an inner struggle for him.

  8. Lixie says:

    It’s probably worrying that my instinctive reading of ‘bitches (do x)’ is as a homestuck reference.

  9. Wolf-who-watches says:

    Someone is about to break out in toothmarks.

    One wonders if sometimes-wolf would like help . . .

  10. Domo says:

    Wonder what happened to him as a kid to be like this. If you guys figure it out tell me, I’m off to kill Izaya

  11. Renold says:

    ‘zat why it’s called a “knee-jerk” reaction? It’s either a physical response you can’t control (like your knee), or impulsively saying something mean (cause you’re a jerk)? 😀

  12. Anonymous says:

    Oohh no… dat answer is not cool…

  13. Eldrich Belmont says:

    Baaad, baaad boy!!

  14. Spike the Dragon Knight says:

    Someone deserves to explode twice

  15. solar penguin says:

    Maybe I’m showing my age here, but why do you think there’s something odd and wrong with Reynold’s behaviour?

    Since Weirdwolf found out it’s his birthday, she’s obviously been stalking and spying on him, snooping and prying and generally violating his privacy. And that’s one of the worst things it’s possible to do to anyone.

    She deserves to be insulted for something like that. If anything, he was too mild to her.

    @Jenny: June 2nd? Interesting. My high school chem teacher always told us Mole Day was October 23, and the best time to celebrate on that day was 6:02:21.

  17. Myra’s birthday is the day after mine. I just realized that

  18. Justanothergeekgirl says:

    OMG Myra’s birthday is the same as me!! YAY
