It's nice to finally see a potentially healthy relationship in Avalon. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"><P>A question for Josh: Can we assume that Ryan and Deirdre are honestly sleeping together, and that this isn't just some flirtatous joke of Deedee's? I could accept that they're having sex, I'm just a bit skeptical.<P>But I agree with a poster on another thread that Ryan's directness was cool -- much different than the Joe and Ceilidh travesty going on at the same time.<P>Put me down for RD+++.<P>-Chris

I, of course, have to say <B>AMEN</B> to most of your post here, ckern <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/biggrin.gif"><P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by ckern:

Both of them are just far too casual towards the reference, indicating that it's something that they've both grown accustomed to. Besides, if they were simply dating she would have said 'dating', not 'shagging'... I'm sure she's in touch enough with "modern" (ie. post-Austin Powers, at least on THIS side of the big ditch) slang to know the difference <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/smile.gif"><P>------------------

No foolin'. At last, a relationship that *isn't* massively dysfunctional. (Even us most rabid J&C+++'ers still acknowledge that those two kids got a *long* way to go).<P>Ryan & Deirdre aren't afraid to talk to each other about what they're really thinking. That one simple thing makes all the difference. 'Misunderstandings' that would send any other relationship in this strip into a weeks-long soap opera tragedy sequence are obliterated in ten seconds by these two.<P>Methinks that Deeds' last relationship crashed because her ex-boyfriend wasn't able to just up and be honest. When she saw that Ryan *was* like that, methinks that Deeds' attitude snapped right over to "Move over little sister, this one is *MINE*. *growl*"<P>That would explain Deeds' whole tone of 'Phoebe, you incredible idiot, can't you see what kind of guy you're rejecting here? Well, if you can't, then I'll just *take* him!' attitude, wouldn't it?<P>And Ryan appears to be a good influence on Deirdre, too -- she's straightened up just a wee bit since they've started shagging. Going on what her family has hinted about the 'old' DeeDee, she'd never have been able to hold a steady job.
