    Well, all glasses, even nonmagical ones, give a penalty to Charisma, so if that's your casting stat...

    Not so. In Fallout 4 at least two types of eyewear gives charisma bonuses. (Okay, arguably it is the frames.)

    Not really. characteristics that makes one charming are very subjective. sometimes people are charming because they're sexy, other times simply because they're cute, sometimes because they are goofy, sometimes they're cool. in japan, there is a character archetype in called "meganekko" for girls and "megane" for boys, that refers to them being attractive because they wear glasses, and would in fact be considered less attractive without them.

    meanwhile big round swirly nerd glasses like the ones Tedd used to wear that made them look more geeky? are very goofy. and goofiness can be endearing.

    also sunglasses or shades exist which are pretty much shorthand for cool ever since they were invented, as Johnny Bravo says "I can't be seen without my glasses!"

    I don't really believe this is the case, but what if they are a limiter of some sort (at least with magic's not-change).

    I figured the lone panel with just the glasses was to make us wonder how badly hurt Edward was, but maybe it was to foreshadow something important about them being missing (like the dropping of Elliot's phone turned out to be important.)

    Again, not something I seriously think, but if he's been wearing them even when it shows him wake up in the middle of the night...
    ...Tedd did say that he wasn't sure that Edward actually needed glasses to see.

    It's more the feasible that, like Tedd, he just has minor vision issues.

    Don't worry Ashley, I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that your waifu should also be your friend.

    Yeah that makes sense. a waifu that isn't your friend probably isn't someone you'd want any relationship with? like you can admire a character if they're a jerk or whatever, but the healthy thing to realize is that they're a jerk and probably wouldn't make exceptions in their jerkiness. like a relationship built on pineapple logic (prickly outside, sweet inside) where one endures the prickly parts to get to the sweet part of someone is probably not the best because there is potential that the ratio of prickly to sweet isn't worth it, assuming they have any sweet side at all.

    Given the reference Dan was making, he could have gone with "Grace are friend, not food for thought"...

    That doesn't even make sense, and the excess wordage ruins the reference, anyways.

    Hehe.

    In all seriousness I get Ashley's concern. Even if this story isn't erotica it sounds like the next best thing, and not everybody would be okay for being the basis for a character in such a story.

    Thankfully Grace is the kind of person to take a relatively mature outlook on the writing process.

    An incredibly messy one I suspect. Tedd/Grace/Sarah are almost certainly a triad in the making, with Sarah likely also dating Sam at the same time. I can see an Elliot/Ashley/Grace hinge, and also an Ashley/Elliot/Susan one. Justin and Luke are their own thing for now, but a mystery character will arrive in the university arc to link them in!

    Susan is just in a romantic relationship with everybody she's not related to.

    More seriously, I definitely see some kind of Tedd/Grace/Sarah/Sam polycule in the making, but whether it's a quad or not I'm honestly uncertain.

    Also, I forget how long it's been since Elliot and Sarah broke up. I want to say about two months? So while I suspect that the Tedd/Grace/Sarah triad has been in the making for a while I don't see it becoming official for a few more months. I do have to say that I find that it feels much more natural than Elliot/Ashley if only because it seems to be moving slower.

    You're forgetting that Elliot is apparently at least a little bi(shirts verses skin with Noah helped him figure that out,) there was an NP arc that had heavy shiptease with Tedd and Cheerleadra Elliot that included the two of them simultaneously have a mental image of kissing the other, Grace has been trying to get the two of them to be comfortable with cuddling(and seems to be doing well with it) and has said that she can picture them kissing, and Tedd/Tess and Elliot/Ellen are a thing, or at least one crushing on the other, in every universe where they have compatible genders and sexualities that we've seen.

    Don't be surprised if we see Tedd making out with Cheeleadra while Grace cuddles Ashley at some point in the future.

    Bah, that doesn't count as evidence! Everybody knows that EGS only has two sexualities: gay and unlabelled pansexual.

    Last panel is strongly suggesting that there's more than "in the making" here.
