The episode in which it seems like Dan is maybe more insightful than he first seemed. But seriously, though, what is this guy's deal?

WhyTF would she tell him anything? This makes no sense.

At least there's nothing inherently wrong with trying to take part in something that someone else is interested in. Supporting someone else is a good thing! ... but if you end up pretending to like something just so you can get closer to someone, that's manipulative. I wonder on which side of that line Julie is spending most of her time.

Yeah, Mr. Nosy really needs to stop probing. But this is actually Julie's fault for playing along and not realizing she doesn't have to answer his questions.

Somehow I feel that, if this comic continues past this chapter, these two will end up becoming friends *smh*

That's the thing. It's odd for her to put up with such bullshit. She's not like that.

@Guest: Hmm, I can't tell you really why she would act like this. I can say it's in character for her, though.

@FallingStar: That's a good question. I wonder which side of the line she's on.

@Hippocampus: I don't currently have any plans to bring him back, but we'll have to see. Ditzy was originally written as a side character, and now she's made Cynthia become the side character haha

It's worth noting that Dan, as a clerk of a Friendly Local Game Store (FLGS), has a responsibility and, by now, a habit of talking to people and getting them to open up. Nerds congregate in these places, nerds who are by nature asocial. Game stores like this are the only times they can be who they are. Yes, Dan should not be flirting with his customers; that's squarely in the 'NO' bin. But being a social trampoline - bouncing the conversation back to the other person, keeping them in a state of motion - comes part and parcel with the job.

Did Julie's tongue slip, and reveal more than she intended? Or does that smug grin on Dan's face in the last panel suggest that he knew how to guide the conversation to her revealing the truth? ... did he know that she had no interest in Trevor, and he just made the suggestion to throw her off...? What does it mean for Julie's plan going forward?! FIND OUT NEXT TIME ON DRAGO- ... *ahem*
