    Yes @White Tiger and @Radagast. I agree with you both completely. This relationship was rushed and unnecessary. Then again, Chalo did say there were some other things that had to be worked out.

    So whether we agree or not with how things turned out what is everyone's anticipation of how everyone else will react? Will Geeku not try to rape Miles? I think Sarah will be happy but more or less not change her views. Minos I expect would be happy for rachel, or threaten Miles. Mora I expect to give zero f***s.

    Too much TMI...Too much TMI!!!
    Well, I was reading this early this morning, been seeing a ton of comments on this particular page on a couple of sites that I visit, had some discussion with a few friends of mine, and thought I’ll go ahead and put in my two cents just for the fun of it.


    I’m going to level here. I know there has been “build up” here for quite some time now with the whole, beating him to a bloody pulse, running, jogging, and working together, but I’m still surprised that these two are actually dating, especially after the whole Miles riding the Geecku DESPITE the fact that they weren’t technically dating then. With that in mind, it is possible that some couples just like the insults and drama, kind of like the parents in Rick and Morty…



    With that being said though, I’m still with the majority that this seems kind of rushed. Again, understand the build up in all, but it’s like what the what! Why? It kind of feels like everyone is supposed to feel like they belong together despite the fact of “connection.” Literally five pages ago Rachael gave a detailed explanation as to why they could never really be together. So…what was the point exactly of the last five or so pages? It’s like the complete opposite of Taffy and Randal…like a foil of sorts. Ship wise, I suspect it would be called the SS Titanic. XD


    Now, I’ve read somewhere that these two were supposedly put together because they were the same species, kind of like Mora and Minos. That…honestly makes no sense whatsoever. I mean, outside of those two, there are a ton of other mixed couples, such as Grace and Kayin, Vixy folks, and Shin’s folks. For the latter, I could see where it could be true because they’re cats. But outside of that, I highly doubt that would be the case.


    And on one final closing note…

    Sarah actually kind of hooked them up if you think about it.

    Whelp, it's been fun. But I'm not reading this comic anymore. Been dreading this bullshit for years now, and he finally gave up and made it happen. I'm out. Peace.

    I wasn't surprised. All that build-up wasn't going to be thrown away for nothing. I mainly read this comic, and it's side stories, for it's world-building and plot rather than characters or shipping which is a bit weird.

    I might offend some people with this, but the simple fact is that when it comes to this arc and the shipping within... I really don't care. Whenever Miles comes up, I mostly tune him out. (Except when an attractive female is involved. Like with Geecku.) Same goes for Rachael, mostly.
    So I'm not really too upset about this. It's been hinted for a while that this was going to happen, and the pacing is awkward, but honestly I genuinely don't care.

    Mmm I've noticed something kinda interesting. Chalo said this may be a divisive topic, but so far most of us are sorta in agreement about it. We don't like or don't really care about it correct ? So far nobody has really praised this for happening. I honestly thought there would be a few that come and talk about how happy they are this happened and give reasons why it's a good thing, but no nobody has really stepped forward. This leaves me wondering if most or all of us don't like this or don't care about it why is it happening ? I know that not everybody that reads LL are members of the forum, but I would think the one's that are members are the most passionate about the comic right ? I'm not saying Chalo should cater to his fans, but if the one's that really care about your comic really don't like something you are doing should you keep doing do it ? I not sure about any of this, I'm just wondering about it.

    All I have to say is...*Confetti* Finally. Round of drinks. The whole kiss thing sure could have waited, but it looked like Chalo wanted to finish out the Arc completely. Now I personally think Miles is a lot more loyal than you people give him credit for. Just because you're a horndog doesn't mean you cheat. He never cheated of Taf.

    I guess you could have seen this coming. Ever since the comic friends you could kind of expect things to eventually go this way. Still it does seem a little bit rushed, but right now I'm just enjoying how Miles doesn't seem like he's getting completely screwed over for the moment. At least with Rachael he has a reason to stay on the farm.

    Just believe in me
    I've been out of this place for a long time and coming back just to see this confirms one thing only:

    The Webcomic Relief was right

    And I quote

    "Comic, you take a step forward and then a a backflip but the kind of backflip you take, land on your head and suddenly you can't feel your legs anymore"

    I was honestly hoping for a bit more of Miles insight here. It's a shame since that was a perfect opportunity to really see what motivates him, what he really thinks. It was intimate and I wanted to see him raw and vulnerable. We got a tiny bit of that but it wasn't as satisfying and in-depth as I'd hoped. I think the pieces were there but a bit too rushed? I can understand why they wanted to wrap things up or whatever but yeah..it felt more like Rachael telling Miles what to think and do rather then him initiating the change himself?

    Okay. I've been a little too busy to comment lately, but I've been keeping up with the comic as best I can. I have to agree with the majority of the commenters here. This feels very forced and rushed. It wasn't but a few pages ago that Rachael was telling Miles about how selfish he has been and then BLAM; they're dating. I would have liked to have seen some buildup, or at least seen the mental work-through for the characters as to how this suddenly happened and why Rachael agreed so quickly. It just doesn't make any sense (to me at least).

    Like some others I'm not a shipper of these two by any means. I don't mind them getting together, but I'm not crazy about it either. I think these two could really pull the other out of their respective shells, but could just as easily do it as best friends. As someone has pointed out before; there are a lot of couples in this comic to focus on as it is, and these two's biggest problems are themselves and not so much their love lives. I feel more focus should have been put on their acceptance of their flaws and their willingness to change going forward.

    As for Rachael and relationships, I feel like she could benefit from being with someone not connected to the farm. The only problem with that is that Rachael is a really closed off person who only lets close a select few. This part of her personality is understandable and I would like to see this change as she become more comfortable with being a part of the farm and it's residents.

    For Miles I think he is better off by himself until he can fully acknowledge that he is as flawed or more flawed than others and can identify the reasons. Then he needs to be willing to correct these issues so that he can begin to accept that he doesn't have it all figured out and that other people are just as relevant and important as he has viewed only himself to be up till now. As far as Miles in a relationship, I wouldn't mind seeing him reconnect with Hope Ravenhurst as TerrificTwenty had suggested. I've been a fan of these two together since I first read Learning Curves. The chemistry between the two just felt natural to me and it felt as though he truly did love her.

    I honestly just like that the arc was finished out, rather than leaving things open for later or whatever. Could have extended the arc a bit I suppose, to show a bit more, but the way they interact with eachother? This works to. Anyways MilesxRachel...*Confetti*
