(From Darths and Droids. Click for full-sized snacks.)
I’ve mentioned in the past that Darths and Droids has appropriated the Star Wars plot as its own, but has also instituted its own metaplot involving the players of the characters. I’ve also suggested that the introduction of Annie suggested that the epic plot of Star Wars could result in the equally epic expansion of said metaplot.
But as of this strip, we now have a suggestion that the Darths and Droids metaplot may undergo a sort of Cerebus Syndrome without any help from Star Wars at all. Why? The third and fourth panels.
I prefer to believe that Ben was about to say “She doesn’t have a boyfriend”. Which as we all know, can only lead to one thing: Jim getting the hots for her. Possibly expanded into a love triangle with Pete as well.
But I don’t want any spoilers when David Morgan-Mar inevitably comments on this post. In fact, I would have titled this post “Because it’s been too long since we’ve heard from David Morgan-Mar” but I just couldn’t pass up a chance to torment all of you. Again, sorry.
