    confused V's Significant Other...

    Didn't see a topic of it, and I know it's been mentioned before.

    First off, I've heard from others that V has a sig other. I don't know specifically which strip it's from, though, so my apologies for not attaching a reference link.

    Anyway, people think that if V's sig other does show up in the comic, that it will solve the gender issue.

    I think differently. I have a strong feeling that, if this person appears, they will look identical, or if not very similar, to V. Thus, adding more confusion to the great debate.

    Your thoughts?

    223 is when the issue first comes up. V also mentions it when giving Sabine advice in 385. Man, I am really addicted to this comic, 'cause I only had to glance through the titles to remember.

    Anyway, yeah, I would expect V's mate to look equally androgynous. The Giant says in the "No Cure" compilation that we will see the SO eventually, but doesn't answer any other speculation. Really, even if V's mate was clearly male or female, though, the elves might allow gay marriage, so we still wouldn't know for sure. (And just to throw more fuel on that fire, one of the bonus strips in the newest compilation has V, Durkon and Belkar at a restaurant where two female paladins are getting frisky, Belkar comments that you know it's a sweet party when "even the Lawful Good honeys are getting freaky," Durkon agrees, and Vaarsuvius says with a puzzled eyebrow that s/he sees nothing out of the ordinary.)

    Well, I think that's more of a comment on V's lack of ability to discern gender, rather than acceptance of same sex relationships.

    For instance, V couldn't figure out what the hubbub was about Roy wearing the belt of masculinity/femininity, as seen here.

    Even if V's spouse has is clearly male/female, we have no idea what V's sexual orientation is. Given his inability to discern between genders, V might not even have a preference.

    True... but also she believed that Elan was making out with a male policeman in 365 and really didn't have much to say to that situation either. So I think it has elements of both.

    Now that I think of it, could V be flying back to his SO? That would be quite the reveal for strip 600.

    If V is distracted by Elan, I am sure a SO who hasn't been seen in years would be a bigger distraction.

    That is what I am guessing, since it was the same for the drow.

    I don't get the drow, though. Drow males have never been portrayed to be feminine.

    Unless V's spouse is a skilled arcane spellcaster in his/her own right, and could directly aid V his research.

    But yeah, I don't think V is heading to the spouse right now. He/she is probably just looking for some uninhabited island where he can research new spells to find Haley without being disturbed by other people's problems.

    i think the drow show there gender more in personality rather than the build of there bodies, though i do believe that the males do have a more masculine physique than the females.

    however, i am in no way an expert on the matter, and could be very, very wrong.

    Oh, Dandelion, now I HAVE to ask! I've noticed before when people link to strips they often include the title... and now you mention "glancing through the titles"! Sorry if I'm being a bit slow, but I've never found this list. I only see the titles in the left frame when a new comic is being posted, and when I look for stuff in the archives I just write numbers in the url line and flip back and forth... so, how do you do it the smart way? Where do you find this list of titles?

    you could also do it by clicking the comic archive button. You know, the scroll-like button beside the curious ? button and the interesting ! button.

    the ! button is the extra page. Have you visited that page before? It got some bonus comic and some guest comic.

    Thanks Fri!

    I should have been able to think of that by myself I suppose...

    I did read the cast pages and the filler- and guest comics years ago, when I began reading OotS, but since then I don't think I ever really paid attention to the little icons at top.

    Thank you for doing my thinking for me!

    V's master appears almost as androgynous as V, and some people think that this elf could be V's mate as well as V's mentor.

    V's mate shall be androgenous and it will be ambiguous whether or not both are gay, adding to the confusion.

    Even aside from Vaarsuvius's likely reaction, Haley specifically said that that was one secret that not even Vaarsuvius knew.

    The drow was V's opposite and as such had a clearly defined gender, like Pompei.

    ^There is no Pompei, only Pompey.

    Anyway, referencing and nitpicking aside, V's mate isn't gonna be Haley. To quote AKA_Bait, 'If V's mate was Haley, Elan would be a pile of ash right now'.

    Although I have no idea about this, the first time I read the strip in which V reveals hir (yes, hir) marriage, I saw Belkar's line 'So... many... questions...' and though that BELKAR was V's mate!

    Tho that's almost a fact in the HoH and Belkar's Romantic Interest...
