Well, someone's bitter.

Anecdotal confirmation bias.
Pretty low 'Nique

Makes an ass out of u and me.
Is it me, or has she been incredibly petty lately?

Yes it seems she's become very judgmental and hypocritical but, it shows that even someone like Nique has their flaws and it's not just Slick and the others.

I know Abby is nice and all but, I'm really hoping she calls her out on some of this. Or at least inquire why she's been so angry lately.

I'm not gonna believe this relationship will last until they have a big fight then come back together later on. Maybe 'nique's petty attitude lately will lead to that fight, maybe?

Shit, my memory's really failing me, what anecdote? Did 'Nique go out with anyone before Abby? Someone that partied too hard for her, even? Hell, I was never Miss M but never has a potential reference to a prior arc slipped me by like this. What are you talking about?

nique's mentioned ex-boyfriends before, relationships that happened and ended off-screen, or before the comic began.

i assume this response was intended to be a reference to her relationship to slick, but the phrase wouldn't... and doesn't really apply to their dynamic. nique and slick were never dating. she may or may not have had romantic interest in him at one point, but she preferred to tease him and set unattainable goals for him and the two never initiated a committed relationship - there was no romance and there was no sex. they were just friends who flirted sometimes. additionally, she never actually "dumped his ass." the two simply drifted apart over time as one half matured and developed while the other stayed the same - and although nique tried to spend time with him he claimed it wasn't the same.


http://www.sinfest.net/view.php?date=2013-02-09

the relationship didn't take a turn for the worst until victim blaming or sleaze started harassing nique. but she still never actually dumped him - and even tells abby that they just drifted apart because they didn't have much in common anymore and at least one half of the party had a hard time relating to and sympathizing with the other half... and even if she DID "dump his ass" - it definitely would not have been because he was "partying too hard" ... it was either because he failed to be there for her when she needed him, the fact he did not want to relate to or sympathize with her, or because from her perspective he was harassing her.

so i'm sorry but like ... What

however if the comment has nothing to do with her relationship with slick and literally just an unrelated-to-personal-relationships hypothesis about what happened - than its more like a completely reasonable conclusion to come to given the kind of person she's known d-man to be for years. and currently no one is aware that d-man has children, especially since he's never mentioned having any... so it's not like most people would assume, ah, she must have left because he was a terrible father (which is implied by one sunday strip) because as far as anyone knows ... he's not a father at all

It was actually just that she accuses him of partying too much, whilst at his party, being the only party of his she's ever attended. You can't insinuate a person's history just based on what they're doing right now and your negative opinion of them. Better to come to no conclusion at all then to imagine one from the current scenario and assume it to be true (so I guess we could also add the representative bias to 'Niques assessment).

well, 'nique's been aware of the devil and his activities for quite a while now (including his involvement/ownership of the bomf district, which is all about "partying") - and she's probably gotten even more details about his lifestyle from Abby. so she does have _some_ history on him.

Suppose, just seems a little too coincidental for me. Could have easily been...
* For working too much
* For torturing people too much
* For temping people to sin too much
* For enslaving women and degrading them too much
* For corrupting men and damning them too much
* For interfering with the government too much (which we didn't see before Liberty left Sam but he probably did)

So she dumped the Devil, because it turned out he was... evil

Being a shitty dad seems pretty evil, if she didn't see that coming then who knows what she thought of him.
