cute kitty Meow! Mewo! Posted October 24, 2016 Share Posted October 24, 2016 some of the fans of the webcomic Go Get a Roomie, including me, have been for quite some time now speculating the two main characters, as one asexual romantic, and the other aromantic sexual. Right now the storyline, the aromantic girl is discovering "her love" for the other, and it's kind of forboding for me. I guess that for a person who's prided themselves on their lack of attachment, to love someone, which implies some level of attachment, would be pretty scary, and would require a dramatic storyline when they face the realization of loving this friend of theirs. but, on the other hand, the thing is... the way the writer has been playing out the relationship, this girl is "different" for her, and it looks a lot more like she's just a romantic person who's romance-repulsed. makes it kinda frustrating, when I was reading into it as a representation of aromanticism. The way it's unfolding, it really looks as if she's had romantic feelings all along and just didn't see em. I guess that this is something that people do deal with, and probably on a larger scale than people who are aromantic, IDK, the whole "late blooming" thing is a real trend, no idea if there are more "late bloomers" or asexuals, let how many aromantics there are. anyway it's.... frustrating. I am a huge fan of a few webcomics, and when they randomly have romantic plotlines running.. I'm just annoyed about it. In another webcomic I read, Questionable Content, they're in a story arch that's been focussed on two new characters. one is becoming the friend of one of the more main characters, and the other met one of the less prominent characters, but right now about equal time is spent on both girl's arcs. I'm really loving both of the stories, and even really identify with the second girl, but I'm sooo hesitent about where this is going. with the girl who I've been a lot like in the past, and still now, kind of taking everything literally and not understanding the subtleties of meeting new people. and her mood and attitude towards the world is one I am in a lot of times myself. but I just know, that because they introduced her to the one character, it's gonna be a romantic story by the end of it. and she might even just not be a permanent addition to the plotline as a whole, or who knows. right now I'm getting really comfortable with the plot of this comic, but at some point they're gonna change arcs and I'm gonna be sad about that. and with the other girl's arc, she and the more central character are becoming close buds. and I'm really excited about this, it's like, a qpf or something, they really care about each other, although they haven't yet discussed it. and considering certain details of the plot and the general unawareness of the population of aro and ace existence, I'm bitterly anticipating the moment when boom they're a couple, not friends. it's love between human and machine, look at how edgy this is, love across intelligent species. yeah! ... <_< I just can't appreciate the friendships both characters have now, because of the fear that they'll fall for someone at some point. at least there's a few good solid friendships in the comic already, but there's just never an arc about friendship, all the arcs so far either end up in life changes focussed on one of the characters, or romance if it's an arc between two characters. I want these arcs not to end with romance. but history tells me, they probably will. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
