Angela did have Kestrel all wrong, there. But K is waaay overreacting. Friends should tolerate their friends' boneheadedness. This would in no way compromise K's new-found independence. K, turn around.

Yes, Kestrel's overreacting... but Angela DID lay it on a bit thick. And in the worst possible way, to boot - she went into this conversation and spoke with her own hurt feelings guiding her examples, and Kestrel's responded in kind.

No, Kestrel doesn't have to be selfless all the time - and Angela either didn't ask Shannon and Felix what they knew, or didn't care. In the end, it's all the same - the guilt-trip was unleashed, and now Kestrel's returned the favor with a heap of angst on top.

Damnit Aiere, quit kicking those puppies so hard. That one hit close to home. I'm sure they will work this out, but still that hurt reading it. I can't wait to see what you have in store for this.

Angela's so... vulnerable... :(
Now that Kestrel's mad at her, she's so upset. Kestrel's like about her only close friend, no?
Wonder if she'll do anything crazy because of that... :-?

The frustration is tangible - it's very sad.

I hope they can mend things before Kestrel leaves for her interview.

I wonder if Kestrel is just mad at Angela, or if she's also mad at herself.

The entire "selfish/selfless" part of Kestrel's rant made me wonder if she wasn't arguing with more than one person there.

It was probably a lot of pent up frustration from the job search and making the decision, and angela looked like she was dissenting. With Kestral being in a rather fragile state, she broke down.

yeah. i used to see that a lot, working at the grocery store. it's just a bunch of pre meanopausal women with issues, just waiting. and when you accidently put something in the bag with their eggs... KBLAMMO! all of a sudden, the don't care that the chicken wasn't on sale, or that the video store was out of copies of dirty dancing, or that their husband may or may no have been sleeping with the babysitter- at that point, their death ray is foucsed on you, and your incompetence.

so... back on topic. i don't think that K is going to leave town with this hanging over her head. she seems mush too sencible.

Kestrel didnt overreact. Just think about it, Kestrel has likes ONE guy through most of this comic, Seamus. But she saw a opprotunity to make her freind hapy and let Angela Be with Seamus. She never complained, and gave her their blessings, even though we KNOW Kestrel has feelings for him, she has to go out on dates with the three of them and watch them be happy together. She tolerates that, and on top of that she tolerates it with a smile on her face. Then Angela throws SELFISHNSS in her face. Kestrel didnt overreact IMO, and honestly, I wouldnt want freinds like that anyway. There was no reason for Angela to go out with Seamus in the first place, she already had someone and just wanted more. Someone that ignorant to my true feelings wouldnt be a freind in the first place.

I don't think Angela was dating anyone at the moment.

I don't think she ever officially told off the guy who was also dating Crazy Wiccan Girl, but I'll admit my memory is not the best on these things.
