Love, Bureaucratically by VanHeist Love, Bureaucratically by VanHeist
Part two in a series, in which we find that "maybe" is pretty damn complicated, even contractual. Basically, Hector crushes on very difficult females to begin with, and Cora May is nothing if not bureaucratically formidable. But he's got himself a date, so good on him.

And good on you if you waded through all that text.

The moment she started elaborating I knew... I KNEW I would need to take notes and create a mindmap of what she was saying if I wanted to properly understand what was being said and immediately sought out my notebook and pen.

I find her to be both intimidating and interesting. xD

Well, no one can ever accuse her of being disorganized, at least. 
flamewolf393 Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2015
She would make a good dominatrix

Perhaps, after making you read and sign a stack of waivers and contracts two feet thick :P
Bubbubob Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2015 ...uh? ...You know what? He got a date and that's all that matters.

Often best not to overthink such things. ;) (Wink)

I actually implement this system, myself. The only difference is I don't tell people about it.

holy shit! this rings bells of truth, i think. is there any way to make it more complicated? nice work

I've several thoughts here:
 - Whereas I wish for more casual(?) girlfriend for myself, if I was this girls' or her boyfriend's friend (preferably both), I would love to know everything I appropriately could of their relationship (just as I wish to see more of these characters in the future).
 - As believably as this character is presented here, I do not think, that girls like this exists (which is a shame, really)
 - I love her style.

I'm amazed at how you categorized high school dating into its  various complicating factors and "tiers" of friendship as you so well put them. You really need to give yourself more credit as a graphic novelist because this is stellar.

o.o...perfect order. A girl that knows what she wants...but at the same time...Million dollar Maintenance o_o
I ... actually understood all of that.
And ... I'm kinda upset that I can't find someone like that.

The epitome of high maintenance.

lol, this chick needs to get her head outta the gutta and stop acting like she's the queen! but I like this comic, so it still gets a fav =3

He should take her out for infernal affairs, great trilogy.

I liked the part where they fed triad snitches to dogs.

FrostKuji Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2014
Yes well done, he is about to become a tool. Hope he likes lawyers because that is what pops to mind when she is talking. To add to that she looks like she belongs in a Phoenix Wright game. lol

Cora May is my hero.

I felt like this was ridiculously over the top and off putting but the comments seem to love it. Guess I am the weirdo.
Celesol Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
I'm not sure if you mean the comic or the girl?
Because the girl is mean to be ridiculously over the top. :>
If you mean the comic though, most of the pages are like this, so it might be a bit too cartoony for your taste. (I personally find it very funny, tho.)
Judg3m3nt Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2014
How far the joke went. Every joke has a point where the joke is made and people laugh but continuing is to "drag it out". For me it seemed very drawn out. I have followed Van for a while and have read all of these strips and for the most part I find he lands right around the sweet spot of the jokes. This specific one just happened to be far too far for my taste. It went from humorous to tedious.
Celesol Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
You must understand that everyone's sweet spot might be in different places than others.

I understand what you mean about jokes caring on too long, though. I have had the feeling before of laughing at a joke, then hearing the joke continue, and continue, and wondering why on earth others are still laughing.
Judg3m3nt Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2014
That's why I said, "for my tastes"
Kratosismad Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Please tell me I'm not the only guy who finds her and her system hot.
I'm serious that's simply amazing.
TheShyLion Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2015
System - yes. Hell yes. Reminds me of Halo. ;)
The girl - maybe. Her in real life - hell no. Too cold. Warm up a bit, then maybe. :)
wikigiuli Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2014  Professional General Artist
gosh, this girl is cool! XDD

actually I'm very hit by the good and interesting way you portrait your female characters: by a male comic artist is not so common! (actually by MANY comic artists, gender apart...)
hvk Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Complicated, yes; but it seems very legit and accurate to me!
