If you look at the past several strips, and remember who it is writing them, it all becomes clear.<P>June 19:
Iain: Get a boyfriend!<P>June 20:
Alison's second-panel reference to Iain's genitals.
And in the third panel, their faces come together, and Alison doesn't look mad... and she almost seems to be puckering.
(to say nothing of the more obvious (and many-times-mentioned-already double entendre in panel four... and the more subtle phallic imagery prevalent in a game of foosball - the players are little rods whacking balls around. Yeah.)<P>June 21:
Is Alison that observant? Perhaps. But the other possibility is that she's had her eye on Iain from the beginning and has therefore noticed (and resented) every single time he's hit on another girl. Not exactly stalking, but at the least paying <i>very</i> close attention.
The above could also explain why Alison seemed to be (IIRC) trying to hook Joe and Ceilidh up - she saw Ceilidh as a threat for Iain's attention and therefore tried to draw her away with Joe. As well as her attempts to separate Iain from the rest of the group - if Iain is a loner like she is, it makes it easier to get his attention.<P>There you have it. Hints galore, as usual. (however wrong I may be about them.)<P>-Darth Paradox

Mh hm. And simians will begin emerging from my rectal orifice. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspot.com/KeenBoard/wink.gif"><P>Seriously, though, this smells -so- much of Alison having a subconscious crush on Iain. Being who she is, however, she can't handle it. And the result is this.<P>Alison:

Conversly I was at an all girls school then and we were all a pretty unbalanced lot (and 14 which probably explains it).

You gotta hand it to Iain, he's one of the few characters with perspective.

This doesn't make him a heartless manipulator. This merely means that he doesn't like relationships that startle him too much. Also, we have no idea what he said to Feebs to provoke that outburst. More than likely it was something on the order of "Hello". Unless there are other incidents that I'm not remembering, that's been the extent of Iain's "evil womanizing ways". I stil fail to see why everybody hates him so.

Darth: That is a surprisingly logical explanation for some of the events of this past year. It <I>also</I> explains, somewhat, Alison's comments like: "Oy, what is <B>with</B> her?" and others along those lines. It even explains why she pointed Ceilidh towards Alan...<P>Then again, I've been with the crowd who say that Iain and Alison are going to hook up all along.<P>------------------
