Reading this, I thought: autobio?

Suddenly, some of Tat's retcons begin to make sense to me. The devil people seem like an echo of "yellow devils." He's redefining what the strip is about.

So Li'l E's fanboying of the Devil can represent idolizing organized crime figures or corrupt political figures of one's own race.

And he's actually still (or back to) writing about Christianity, with the devils being really "foreign, unsaved devils."

Wow.

For the love of fuck, it's not a retcon. There has to be something that was changed for it to be a retcon. Lil'e was never given a back story. Fleshing out a character doesn't make it a retcon. Narratives don't need to be chronological, most of the best aren't.

Err.. I seem to understand from the posts that the character there is Lil E, but I'd think he's the actual Big D when he was younger.

Right, the same lady we see with Lil'E and Big D here:

Note Big D has a tail, Lil'E doesn't.

So, shockingly, we were all right!

Where you been spunkypants?

Wait, that sounds wrong. I have a habit of calling people ______pants (grumpypants, goofypants, sillypants, etc.)

So. . . where've you been, um smurfypants?

Ok ok Rolling Eyes ; the drawing seemed a bit different from what I recalled. Also, I was thinking of a teacher or something for the woman that intervenes.

WHAT THE FUCK, YOU FUCKING STOOGE, IS THIS FUCKING POST?

How is it possible someone made a worst post than Darqcyde calling Magenta 'spunkypants' and then taking it back while leaving the original spunkypants there which is a desperate attempt to either flirt or be the cool uncle and it made me feel sort of queasy but

OH SHIT, THIS POST. The way only Darq responded to it leads me to believe maybe I dreamed it but I keep refreshing the page and it keeps being there.

waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaajesus fucking.
