Jean's Harem Costume?

Robert is away, on a trip. So your all stuck with me publishing again till he gets back.
EDIT: Hey all, Robert here. I’m back, and I fixed Natalie’s dress. I think it got so drunk that it forgot what color it was.
Uh, did Natalie suddenly change into a different dress?
looks the same to me
Color is just different, was a greenish color and now is a dark grey.
Not to nitpick but that is a little disconcerting.
It’s the lighting most likely.
Okay, the secret’s out.
Will Rodge let the fact that Natalie is really Neil stop his attempted seduction?
Will he remember the truth in the morning?
My money’s on a “No” to that last question. 😛
My money’s on a “no” to the first one, too.
I’m inclined to agree that he wont remember in the morning or dismiss it as having had too much to drink.
Or, like in the tv show, he’ll be put into the confidence and attempt to profit jean.
Soooo assuming Rog remembers this what will he ask for as prof hmmmm . . . oh dear I just an image of him winding up with Araceli.
I’m kind of torn between poor guy getting his hopes dashed and wow you’ve been dating the girl for a couple of weeks and you assume just because she went on holiday she’s going to sleep with you. Even if she was a genuine girl or even just attracted trying to go through with that when your this drunk is hardly going to make her feel romantic or interested in your first time together being like this sheesh.
I’m going to assume that Roger is only being so forceful because he is so drunk, and that were he sober he would have waited for Natelie to show greater willingness.
Well, remember the seduction gear negligee he found in her suitcase…
I meant to say “He remembers…”
The truth hurts…but maybe not as much as the hangover the next day, when he doesn’t remember any of this…
I feel bad for Neil :C I hope he goes to Jean with a mean wish targeted at Rodger.
Why? Sure Rog was a lousy date leaving her alone to be hit on and then wanting sex, that’s fairly normal behaviour for a guy though and hardly grounds to be a bitch.
That is definitely grounds to be a bitch, and I’m pretty sure that ISN’T normal behaviour for men in general.
Hmmmmm guess we have different perspectives on this.
That’s not normal behaviour for men in general. And you don’t think so either, otherwise you wouldn’t have described it as a lousy date. It would just be a date.
It may be I work in a trade industry but those are two seperate issues.
1) Leaving her alone to ve hit on by drunk guys while you get drunk = Lousy date and girl not in mood for romance.
2) Assuming girl went to las Vegas means you’ll probably get lucky = normal guy behaviour especially if its a girl their dating.
You’ll note he WAS taking no for an answer albeit in a really bad way.
I’d also like to point out I’d fully ubderstand a normal girl dumping the guy for behaving like this but there IS a world of difference between the people saying his behaviour justifys making a mean wish to hurt him.
Wow… the more you post the more it sounds like you learned everything you know about men from watching national lampoon movies xD
I’m just saying I don’t think rogers behaviour so far justifies using magic to do mean things to him.
Rodge is being a sexist pig, Neil has every right to get back at him.
I’ve never seen a national lampoon movie but I have heard guys talking when they think a girl can’t hear them.
I guess I’m the only person here who feels it isn’t right to punish someone with magic for somethong like this (funny yes but going way too far).
I’m foreseeing him trying to steal the lamp
I think Rodger may end up girlyfied if he keeps this up.
Uh, what comic do you think this is?
Well, you ask a woman to go with you for a weekend or a few days in Vegas, and you probably have some expectations when she accepts. Not very bright to get that drunk, though.
Of course, if we assume Rodge is based on the original from the TV series, he’s a major horn dog with a short attention span. So, not too surprising going to the reception and getting plastered. And, I agree with some of the others, he won’t remember in the morning.
Taking a girl off to a different city and having her accept may give a guy expectations.
Leaving her alone for hours at the company conference where she doesn’t know anyone while you get drunk and then saying gimme a kiss (which may well be their first one) and then let’s have sex is a recipe for damaging your relationship.
Rodge is an ass. A bumbling ass, but an ass none the less.
Actually, Natalie should know a bunch of people as Neil because Neil was the perennial winner of this trip before now. Of course, as Natalie he/she can not act like she knows people. Neil is not dumb, just a bit too trusting and naive.
And, I just had a thought about newspaper guy . . . could it be Belle Lowes?
My bet is on the guy with the newspaper over hearing Neil. If Rodger doesn’t remember this and no one else over hears this this page will not advance the story. If Rodger remembers I feel that he wont believe it and think Neillie is just not interested in him. If the guy with the newspaper does over hear Neil, it will lead to an explanation of why he is following Neillie and will progress the story, causing more conflict for Neil.
There is no “d” in Roger. (The correct abbreviation for Roger is “Rog,” not “Rodge.”) And I think we’ve all agreed that “Neillie” is _Natalie_.
His name is actually Rodge, just check all the other comics.
Take for example the second comic in this chapter.
“Why else are you here?”
That’s actually a really horrible thing to say. “Why are you here if not to have sex with me?” Very nice, Rodge.
In his defense he’s had at least 9 drinks, probably a lot more been “dating” her for awhile now and had the cute girl he was seeing agree to go to Vegas with him. If he has as little actual experience as it seems with dating movies could well have him thinking they were going to have sex … Or he could just be very, very drunk.
Rodge is the only reason Natalie is here. What was he supposed to think?
Neil stays really cool throughout this. No moral outrage, no indignation, just addressing the facts. Although that Rodge dared to leave her alone in the first place for a drink or nine is pure stupidity, and her presence is supposed to make him more attentive. (Most conferences have lots of sex among strangers. Engineering conferences are one prominent exception, but it is still Vegas.) I bet he hasn’t even prepared the slides for his presentation yet, and the way things are going, Neil will end up delivering the talk instead.
Someone who only gets that drunk occasionally is probably going to have no memory of much after a certain number of drinks, and a lot of what they do remember will be fuzzy.
Don’t ask how I know this. My guess is he’ll have hazy memories of this, because that would be funny later.
If Roger has had so many drinks that he suddenly finds himself on the floor, I don’t think that Natalie has to worry about losing her virginity…at least not _this_ evening…
I’m wondering if the guy with the newspaper is Lord Guano keeping an eye on his new genie’s master.
Not really Guano’s style.
i like natalie in the jeanie outfit on the top of the page 🙂
I support that concept.
A sign of things to come for Neil/Natalie? A real genie, or just a costume when Jeanie puts him/her in another strip club?
How on earth did Neil and Jean ever become friends in the first place? They don’t seem to have a lot in common…
Probably just a costume and sometimes opposite attract.
I like the jeanie clad Natalie also, she is looking so cute.
Newspaper Guy is no one we have seen previously
and is there to watch Roger.
Neil should not have admitted to being Natilie.
ITYM “Natalie should not have admitted to being Neil.”
This has got to be the most fail admittance of secret identities I’ve seen. Most Likely when Rodge wakes up if he remembers anything he’ll just think it was a really weird dream.
To be fair I don’t think any of the superhero/ines ever had to deal with someone of the same sex trying to sleep with their secret identity.
It’s odd you should mention that…
There’s a new TV series “Shezow” where a tween boy inherits his aunt’s super heroine position.
While ‘supering’ he has to wear the dress and hairdo or his powers don’t work.
(No… Under the dress he’s still male.)
This is where the tire thumper comes in handy, and I love Neillie in Duck Soup.
Don’t try to have sex with someone you have yet to kiss. It is very bad form.
Her hair style is different. At least he’s too drunk to take anything that’s happening seriously, and if he remembers all this, he hopefully won’t take it seriously.
Neil looks crazy hot in this page.
Yup, that’s why I was so eager to fix Natalie’s dress. This is easily the best page of her, so far.
I’m gonna go with he’ll be too damn drunk to remember come morning
yay you fix it
“I’m back, and I fixed Natalie’s dress. I think it got so drunk that it forgot what color it was.”
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
the great thing about making such a confession to someone who’s hammered is that you can claim you said something else when he comes around.
“No, I said I was SENT BY Neil. Boy you were sloshed.”
You know reading over the older comics Newspaper guy could be watching Neil as part of the security checks not Roger, I wonder if he’s going to replace the paychologist and constanrly be trying to prove Jeannies a genie?
okay what do we know aout Rodge so far?
He is a bit perverted, he understands his job but has a low attention span for it unless it involves a cute girl. He seems to jump to conclusions yet they don’t seem so far a leap when you consider the circumstances. despite bein friendly he is not above blackmail when he thinks its a simple way to meet a cute girl and he has been seeing Natalie for some time in what he probably assumed was meant to be a relationship.
now consider this, He invited a girl that he had assumed liked him to a vacation. She accepted and he thought she came to be with him. He may or may not have set up an awkward situation regarding a single bed hotel room, and he saw some very interesting clothing in her suitcase that gave him ideas. He of course jumped to a conclusion that she packed the bag herself and intended to have sex. they are adults after all and they have been seeing each-other for some time.
he still is cautious though but then he went to the party and left her alone. the assumption, she would mingle and have fun. niels assumption he would mingle and have fun. Natalie however did not plan on being targeted by several nerds hitting on her because Natalie being male by nature (much like Rodge) did not foresee that development. Rodge might have been wrong to leave her alone, but should rodge know more then niel about the situation at hand?
but then rodge got drunk, probably didnt mean to, but your at a party you like to drink, and you go a little overboard, then you judgement is clouded and you go a lot overboard. Then whats on his mind? well whats on many mens minds when they have not done it in a while and they have an attractive date and a hotel room at hand. sex. in his drunken state his judgement is still clouded and he doesent see wanting sex from his date as wrong. I mean why would she come if not to have sex with him.
He is not perfect he is the perv of the story and he makes plenty of mistakes but thinking of him as horrible person means you only accept mary-sues as acceptable charachters in a comic. not to mention this is a gender swap comic, it feeds off awkward situations, if nobody was a bit simple minded and perverted there would be no awkwardness for the jokes, and no drama for the charachters.
Also Nat is extremely attractive, Roger might be a little intimidated by this woman who, uncharacteristically in his experience, seems to be interested in him. He just needed a little fortification to help him through what may his first time. ( all be it way too much)
It is also obvious that she is much smarter than he. She understands engineering better than he and could probably do his job in a heart beat. If your not secure in your own self this could be freighting.
Hence my stance further up the comments that using a “mean wish” to punish him is an overreaction.
which is the conversation that led me to post this XD
So drunk you go color blind? thats pretty sad there cd…
Teach Rodge a lesson, Transform him into a “HOT Babe” so he gets to see what its like to be hit on. (…….Just hope he doesn’t like it.)
Hmm… I suspect Natalie has just inadvertently made herself permanent, going by the banner…
I’ve seen a few folks refer to Natalie in the banner, but all I see is Jeanie. What’s up with that?
I know that if CD does a special banner, like Jeanie as a witch for Halloween, it changes back when he switches the banner back. In other words, the banner on the current comic is on *all* the comic in the archive and they all change at the same time.
Click on home at the top to see if that changes the banner. I see it to.
Perhaps your browser is caching the banner wrong? Try clearing your cache. I’ve been seeing the Natalie banner for a while.
Well, today I see Natalie as a genie in the banner.
Not really a change I’d like to see. I like Neil as a foil for Jeanie and the other supernaturals.
Will Natalie be come the green Jeanie?
Doesn’t anyone remember Neil/Natalie as the stripper in the genie costume earlier? When Lord Guano mistook him/her for the disobedient Jeanie and had Neil/Natalie chained to the bottle? And Neil had to have his review as Natalie disguised in heavy winter clothing (where did that come from, as they live in Florida?) so he/she nearly passed out? And Roger saw Neil as Natalie when he/she took off the parka and flannel scarf and so on? So Neil has already been seen in a genie costume, right?
The best thing about this strip is that Natalie doesn’t so much complain about Roger coming on to her–she just objects to his technique.
I predicted that Nat would be overwhelmed by being a center of attention at the reception, but all the other engineers were just as clumsy as Roger.
Nobody has tried to show Natalie a good time, to have any fun at all. Nobody’s tried to offered to take her to a show, or just walk around seeing the Vegas sights.
Nobody’s given her any reason at all to enjoy being a girl in their company, and that’s a damn shame, because given the care she lavished on her appearance, she was open to the experience. (If not to actual sex–that’s asking a bit much for a new girl.)
I for one would like to see Natalie hang around for a while; experience a period (or two), meet Rodge’s family, etc
I kinda doubt that periods will be a part of the comic considering it has not shown Jeanie having a period, though she can be moody from time to time I think thats based on the situation at hand as opposed to female issues
This must be the longest discussion on any one of your comics to date CD!!
