Red's working hard.
Well this will end well.
well that last one sure came out of the left field
Is red's friend becoming more human? Or is that a normal reaction? :I
Awwww... That's the sweetest fairy love confession I've ever seen.
RED IS SOMEHOW WORSE THEN ME AT FLIRTING.
PLEASE STOP HIM/HER
This page is dumb, every panel is dumb, stupid and dumb are texts and i love this page
Tell her how you feel, Red.
Insults...insults... I love u...wait what 0_0
AND her hair doesn't go up. Are we sure that "Butt Face" doesn't count as a name? We could call her "Butt" for short.
Red and Blue sitting in a tree...
K. I. S. S. I. N. Gee.
There, it's out. Forget the rest, the last 3 words were all that mattered.
Aw - that's cute.
this is actually kind of adorable (also LOL at annie's face in the third panel!)
Annie in the first panel. XD Blue ain't having none of it.
This is my new standard greeting for close friends and family. Beautiful
Red, you suave sweet-talker, you.
Wow! I just now really noticed Red's uniform; I can't decide whether it strikes me as being more Stalinist, or Maoist. Was this intentional? Or subconscious? Subliminal?
I guess a surge of insults is Red's way of showing how much she cares?
im still wondering why Red is in a military uniform???
I, too, identify as dummysexual.
I think her fifty-first face is very intelligent.
Just Red's way of flirting. Ooo la la, that last part, too.
interesting way of working up to a dangerous truth, Red.
Nice slip there red.
Okay, Red; we know that you're madly in love with her. Now snap out of it before Anne pours a bucket of ice water over your head.
Well, if nothing else, there is no chance whatsoever of the magic mistaking this for Blue's name; I don't think any name could be that long and Red really doesn't seem to be using any proper nouns. Just out of interest, is she a Red Oni to Blue's Blue Oni?
LET'S ALL HAVE AN ARGUMENT ABOUT A CHARACTER'S WELL-ESTABLISHED GENDER AND ENGAGE IN SOME CASUAL HOMOSEXUAL ERASURE WHILE WE'RE AT IT
Oh my god, that second to last panel, that insult is good and precious. This is a much needed and much appreciated breather after Jeanne's doozy of an arc and I love the comic, cheers!
And there it is.
Finally wrangled that mouth into saying the right thing.
...aaaand I totally can handle this. Not.
A heartbreaking work of staggering genius.
Everybody sometimes has a little word-finding problems ...
Red's a wonder with words
Wait, what kind of "love you"? Sisterhood? LOVERHOOD???
I gasped at the end
Good job Red. Always remember to tear down their confidence before confessing your undying love so that they don't get too full of themselves.
School days: condensed version
Trying a little too hard there, Red.
'Bout as tsundere as it gets. Looking forward to the first panel of Wednesday.
Ah, goodness, I cringed and then it was cute
I think it's working.
Panel 6 is the single greatest line of romantic dialogue ever written.
Honestly, if Red's hair didn't go up, I don't know why anyone would put up with this.
At least Red is under no illusions as to the flaws of the one she loves, and she loves her all the same.
That's not a normal reaction to meeting the girl you love? That explains a lot...
love poems 101
I can't believe I almost missed that last sentence the first time I read this!
Maximum smoothness, Red.
gay!! thats gay (this is a good thing if thats not clear)
I can almost smell the "no, wait, I mean!" scene hahahaha
embarassed ramblings, quite possibly the highest form of love ^_^
The circuitous route to flattery.
third panel is best
Oh my god
Is that supposed to be funny? Or "cute"? Because it isn't, it's only nasty and insulting. If I were Blue, I'd kick his ass out of the highest Court tower.
Red working up courage to say something that isn't an insult is adorably hilarious.
They are the best couple.
And the reward for the longest string of insults goes to...
There, you finally said it. Was it so hard? Also, Annie's face in panel 3.
SHE SAID IT. BREAK OUT THE CHAMPAGNE EVERYONE IT'S A TOUCHDOWN
hmm.... that last comment seems a little suspicious....
Her name is gonna be "Dumb Butt". Sure.
Not bad. Talk about an 'anguished declaration of love'!
Those are some mighty mixed signals you're sending there, Red. Blue might get the wrong idea.
Well, at least she got there in the end.
Just look at that pose and style Name's gonna be so awesome!
Red! You ruined the mood!
Aw, you just missed Valentine's Day.
It ended horribly.
A friendly reminder for the readers that this is not a typical relationship dynamic. Don't try this at home.
Smoooth, red... Smooth.
At least she got to the "I love you."
The most dere to ever tsun.
That name was rather long, something shorter would work better Red.
Hard to say isn't it, Red ? I like antimony's face in the third panel.
I retract my previous statement; this is going very badly.
And thats what they call a freudian slip, people.
Annie's like, "Wow. Romance is weird, but fairy romance is WEIRD weird."
Red should have prepared a vow, instead of improvising.
How do you manage to make everything so stressful and awesome and funny and d'awwwwww all at the same time???
smooth red, real smooth.
That last one was important, I think. Despite all the wordcloud distractions.
Blue be like "Weeeeaaaak."
Antimony's face doe.
Am I the only person who is thinking "tsundere?"
This is like me trying to show my appreciation to friends, except my insults are at least slightly more sophisticated. ... I hope.
"And I love you!" lol
good content as always, tom.
Was that an accidental confession? O.o
One of these things is not like the others
Even more underage lesbian characters? Get well soon, sugar.
This is the "I don't know the difference between normal joking and insulting and on top of that I'm nervous so I'm doing it all completely wrong" thing and I know that feel because OMG I've been there! Surf Wisely.
And I love you!
I love you blue!
*Intense making out*
*Annie flees while face palming*
End this madness before you name her butt-face Red!
"Their culture is full of subtlety."
Wait...is this NOT how you make friends and influence people?
Yeah, Red REALLY need to work on alternate forces of stress relief. Preferably those that do not involve being in front of other people. XD
It's not like Red likes her or anything.
This is it. The second best page of Gunnerkrigg Court.
There it is.
Here we see the majestic courtship ritual of the faeries...
dats kawaii :3
Mission:Hiding you real feelings...Failed
Red: Super spy, master charmer.
It feels weird to laugh at this comic after weeks of straight drama!
How to romance: The Red edition
Really cranking up the tsundere isn't she?
Ah, if only this came out last week! I love this page for a Valentine.
I love butts too.
This will not be a healthy relationship, no matter how they started out in life.
>and I love you
Nice job sneaking that in there, Red.
That's exactly how I approach women. I may die alone.
"and I love you" One of these things is not like the other
Clearly Red would not hold up well to any sort of interrogation torture.
Good job Red!
red seems like a sweetheart
And at the last, it comes out :)
...Red's nerves are so obvious. Hopefully Blue will focus on that last sentence and maybe forgive everything else...
My heart is a flutter.
Do the words have a bit different meanings in the woods....?
Wait what was that last one againe??! :P
It has a certain poetry about it. Like Romeo and Juliet.
WE DROPPED THE L WORD SON DAAAAAAAMN
And here we witness the post fairy human performing her mating dance. Such elegance. Very grace.
No, really. Don't be shy, just say what you feel.
Red: "Whut..wait! I didn't mean to say that! Yet. I mean..."
Everyone else: Awwwww!
And the two buttfaces lived happily ever after.
Yah, get it all out!
Wait, wait, wait. What was The last part, Red? The three final words?
There are two prizes to be awarded here, and both of them are for Annie's face in panel three.
Also Red, you sneaky sneak who sneaks! I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE
*GASP* IT WAS SAID
Annie's face in panel 3! :-D
Ha! Annies face
Here comes the groom!
Sometimes you just have to blunder through all the nonsense until you say what's in your heart.
Literally how I flirt tbh
Everyone needs to hear a bit of constructive criticism on occasion.
Well I mean. The fairy folk are unisex. If they were capable of romantic love, it'd have to be with their own gender. Unless they went cross-species.
Red is terrible, Blue deserves better.
Red's hardly working.
Dawwww... best confession ever. XD XD XD
Not gonna lie, this page makes me squeeeee a little.
tsundere at a max.
I HATE YOU AND YOU ARE DUMB AND YOUR FACE LOOKS STUPID... and i love you
Such a subtle culture ...
Always finish your essay with a strong conclusion.
A bold move/strategy let's say if it pays off.
Panel 7 is fat and stupid and I love it.
Well if this ain't me
I've never seen such tsundere!
Its a she. All fairies become females, animals become males.
Is this it? A new best page of gunnerkrigg court?
what if she just whispered that last bit lol
Heh. Burying the lede.
let's see how high this tsundere dial goes
oh why is there just a picture of a coyote here
This is me around pretty girls, ahahahaha. "What do I do?! What do I say?!"
woops let it slip
What if Red's soon-to-be-named friend really doesn't look anything like that? She may in fact have a face like a butt for all we know.
A tad counter-intuitive, yes?
Annie in the first and third panel is probably thinking "What is wrong with Red?" Lol
hahaha oh my god second to last panel is my new favorite compliment
I like it when Red plays subtle...
There goes Tom again, pushing that fairy folk agenda.
Whoop, there it is.
To those who keep saying things like him/her: fairies turn into girls, and animals turn into boys. See Chapter 15. So, her.
ah, yes. im red.
Can't help but wonder if such a declaration in the post-fairy world might have deeper consequences than it would in ours. The naming thing is crazy enough, and Red's sweat production shows how hard she was working to suppress it.
. . .
Maturity sure isn't her strong suit.
Just wait when Blue gets her name.
I reiterate from last comic:
( •_•) ( •_•)>⌐■-■ (⌐■_■)
Red, what the heck are you wearing (and why)?
I need to cut out not-yet-Blue's face from Panel 4...
Freud would have had fun with this one.
Somehow, I don't think Red meant for that last line to pop out like that...
I love Red so much xD
My comment on the page before should have been:
Oh my god she dropped the L bomb
Let me say it again ~Faries~ XD
Welp, another page of Red being Rewhat what that last one again?!
I'm sure... some of us has been there... when we're trying to convey a strong feeling to another person... and make a big butt out of ourselves in by just being... confounded and outrageous... with words.
How i flirt lol
I am Red, you are Blue,
You're a big dumb butt,
And I love you!
"Wow, who knows what character will be gay the next time I login."
And there it is. Not the name; Red's heart.
Is she gonna give blue a super pretty name? Like one we don't know.
Yay! Red sucking at flirting actually ended well!
Dat third pannel
There's a face for ya
Say, does anyone know why Red is dressed like Chairman Mao?
How many more strips until she's named? I actually feel like looking up the world record for filler content (unrelatrd) seriously, how do I portray non sarcasm? I don't want to seem sarcastic :|
Fairies have a strange way of showing love...
Nice being nonchalant there, Red.
EVERY PAGE IS BETTER THAN THE LAST
isn't there an anime term for this?
This is the realest comic you have ever put ink to.
Man your art has gotten to be so much more refined over the years. I love that panel with Red acting haughty.
@all commenters: stop referring to Red as "him"?? When has she EVER been referred to with male pronouns??
Blue is channeliher inner Saitama!
3/81 words. good job red.
Why are people questioning if Red's a girl? She has been a girl this whole time, both as a faerie and as a human. Read her past chapters. Am I missing something? I'm seriously confused by everyone's remarks regarding this. The comic seemed pretty clear on her gender. :/
This page is brilliant
You two are adorable squishes~
Working up a bit of a sweat there, eh? Don't hurt yourself, Red.
All of Annie's reactions in this page. "Fairies, man."
And the big reveal is.......?
.... aw, come on! We all knew Red loves Blue! The narrative already made that clear as water ^-^
BTW, I like how Red also was wearing a male uniform on the Jeanne chapters :D
That's progress of a sort.
Working too hard if you ask me. All she had to say was "Your name is Blue", but she had to be a butt about it. I guess the confession might get rid of some tension, though.
I honestly missed that at first.
I really like the transitioning mood here, very well done exposing the stalling/et cetera for what it is. Also, lol @panel 3.
Excellent, now Blue can profess her unending love for Red's hair!
... Wait, did you guys start thinking she liked Red for her personality? This is literally, like, the second plot they were ever involved in.
Oh, for the love of hell, Red...
Red. Still better than me in flirting
