I find the idea that no woman before Beth scoffed at Nick's pick-up line before a little questionable, but, eh, memory's a funny thing.


Yours truly has returned for another guest stint on AngryRob's punk-rock superhero epic Love Kills Slowly ... and it's in COLOR! Seriously, click through that link... it's some of my proudest work.

I am seriously jazzed to be working with Rob again. If you haven't read LKS before, archive binge on it. It's amazing.

See you on Friday, all!

You ever watch Nip/Tuck?
One of the main characters, Christian Troy... he always managed to get the
woman/women he wanted.
So actually, I'm not surprised Nick remembers it that way... some men just have "it"

I've never seen it! Is it worth the watch?

Nip/Tuck was a good show. Definitely worth watching. Later seasons weren't as good as the early ones, but not as bad as late seasons X Files, or even last season Fringe bad.

Nick is quite the anti-hero. Im starting to have mixed feelings rooting for him, the more I see what kind of things he did in his past.

I probably should have named this chapter "Mixed Feelings" instead. :P

That line actually worked for him? Man, he had some really easily-charmed ladies in his past. If that was me, I would have turned tails and walked away as a brisk-yet-dignified pace. Possibly while giving a less than dignified gesture.
I'm not very nice.

There's a time and a place for being nice. I'm not sure Nick laying it on so thick while throwing the creeper eyes is it. XD

Although, man, I have seen some terrible pickup lines work in my day. I knew a Native guy who got "Do you have a little Indian in you? Would you like some?" to work frequently, somehow.
