Important Question

Postby Tiogshi on Thu Oct 16, 2008 11:46 am

Does Sarah know that Elliot can transform into a girl at will?

I'm pretty sure she doesn't. AFAIK, She's only just found out that Elliot has spontaneously turned into a girl for, as far as she knows, no apparent reason.

I believe I already said:

She doesn't know that Elliot does it at will, yet, and this is the first she's heard of it, as far as we know.

Sorry, feeling sleep deprivation for no apparent reason didn't help my train of thought...
let my try again...
tedd, 1 strip later: "I thought you could only look like Ellen"
so he knows.
now I gotta dig a little bit deeper...
http://egscomics.com/d/20040702.html
Ellen & Nanase know.

putting this together backwards. after PB, only Elliot, Ellen and Nanase knew, since Elliot said "you figured that out?". (Nioi explained it at the next 2004/05/21).
But one week later, Tedd knew it, too. So he either explained to him only, or it came up at school in Moperville, in which case Sarah knew too...

but all this is a moot point anyway, since since Tedd blurted it out now anyway, so if Sarah caught that bit, she knows.

Now we can go into splitting hairs and differentiate between "Ellen" and "random girl", but... *falls asleep*

'k, I did miss how involved Sarah was with this conversation:
http://egscomics.com/d/20080819.html

She knows. Nevermind.

The question becomes, since she knows Elliot can go girl at will... what will she DO about it? haha

For Sarah, I think that him turning into a catboy is more relevant to her interests.

How many years has it been since the "Girls who have kissed Sarah" counter incremented, though?

Would Gracelyn be counted as a different girl from female Elliot, though?

Not since the Birthday Party, I think.

Yes and no. Gracelyn is just a different form that Elliot can now assume. It appears that Elliot could theoretically also assume a Sarah form, a Grace form, a Susan form, a Nanase form, and potentially even Legion Forms combining them. This is all theoretical, though.

Edit: Technically, I believe that Gracelyn is a Legion Form, because it's a combination of Grace and Ellen/Elliot. Elliot says so himself.

Just because that form looks like a combination of Grace and Ellen, that doesn't make it a legion. It's not a true combination of the two, it just looks like it is.

Grace, Ellen, Nanase, Justin, Gregg, and Tedd knew before. It also appears that Susan might have suspected.

http://www.egscomics.com/d/20050225.html
Justin and Gregg found out here

http://www.egscomics.com/d/20060503.html
Ellen, Grace and Elliot told the rest about Nioi
The question is how much

http://www.egscomics.com/d/20050624.html
Grace hasn't talked to Sarah

http://www.egscomics.com/d/20060106.html
Sarah has no clue during birthday party

http://www.egscomics.com/d/20060605.html
Outfits - Elliot's question seems to imply that Sarah does not know that he has girl form.

http://www.egscomics.com/d/20070205.html
Elliot's girl form is One Big Secret

We didn't see Elliot tell Sarah. Elliot didn't tell Ellen, Nanasae, Justin, or Gregg. But he was willing to confirm once they already knew.
