These last few pages have been so difficult for me to complete, and it's probably due to seasonal depression combined with the subject matter and my anxiety. Not a good mix as I found out last year. But this page is now complete after a week so that'll put me at ease enough to work on the next one.

I hope everyone's been having a good year so far! If it's not, it'll get better. I know it'll get better for me, so it'll get better for you! :D

Transcript

Taylor: There you are! Uh. . . God, where do I begin? I'm super sorry about what happened this session. XANA-Yumi was supposed to be a little odd, but —
Andy: Yes?
Taylor: You. Stop that. Your attempts at being funny are just bugging everyone else.
Andy: Dude, I was trying to get Rachel to lighten up. That's all.
Stein: Maybe actually apologizing to her would be a better solution?
Andy: I got her a veggie pizza, didn't I?
Taylor: That’s not a real apology.
Andy: And she's not getting one. You remember what happened ten seconds ago?
Taylor: Yes. I was there.
Andy: Then yell at her! Not me!
Taylor: I'm not yelling at you! I'm just saying —
Eric: You're saying that things weren't supposed to turn out like this. Right?
Taylor: . . . Yeah.
Eric: Then what WAS your plan?
Taylor: She was supposed to be. . . strange. . . and get all of you to the factory. The how didn't matter except she could only deal nonlethal damage.
Taylor: Rachel and I traded ideas on "how" like being extra nice to Sissi, but I mostly gave her free reign.
Taylor: But I thought she'd go for violence, not. . . ugh! Doesn't matter.
Taylor: I'm partially to blame for this. I should've stepped in at the first sign, not just sit and watch.
Taylor: I am the GM, so. . . sorry.

I feel like this is a very, VERY young/inexperienced group- like none of them have had a lot of RPing experience at all.

Only way I could see such light flirtations being taken in such an extreme way is when nobody in the group has had that much experience with more serious relationships.

Not a bad thing, but if I'm right about that, it explains a lot of behaviours.

The Taylor is a pupil of Bonnie(Pearl in the Steven Universe CC). This is Eric's first group, and Andy and Stein are veterans. I'm not sure about Rachel.

I suppose I'm not just talking about RPing experience- Age, too. Like, someone in their 30's or even their 20's has probably had a couple relationships already, probably had their 'v-card punched', etc...

Because they're taking what amounts to flirtations as though they discovered Stein and Rachel in flagrante delecto on the dining-room table.

We probably need more campaign comics about inexperienced groups. Everyone's got their shit together and knows everyone else at the table like an old friend. Maybe we need to see more people figuring stuff out.

i think they're not annoyed so much by the flirt in itself as much as by the fact that someone is derailing the session. (and not just in the "messing out the gm's plan" kind of way. More in a "not fun for anyone" kind).
As far as age go they're in their late teens/ early twenties i guess.
And iirc, Taylor as not a lot of experience GMing, and this is Eric very first game. first time they all play together, though.
But really i don't think relationship experience is the point here, gaming experience is in Eric's case. as for Andy, it's more a personnal matter because he felt Rachel is being rude ooc.

except in Eric's case of course, where it have been explicitely stated that peoples (outside of the group) keep pestering him about relationship stuff despite how he made it clear that he had no interest.

agreed.
and Ian was just getting heated-up because not only, he once again don't get to do much in this session, but since the others are'nt getting anywhere it is'nt even fun to watch so he start losing patience.
