Mugger is being such an insensitive cunt.

This ain't gonna be any pretty
its true, Mugsy has some right to have "Mr. Sadpants" committed to the asylum. its going to boil down to either he keeps wallowing in his own darkness or he starts climbing out of that dank hole to be with mugger. it clear She's putting more into the relationship then he has, and if he wants to keep her and stop driving her away hes going to have to face his demons.
This is PTSD at it's ugliest. These are emotions he's had to bury and does everything he can to avoid reminding him self of his "crimes" as he see's them. And reason I speak to matter of factly about it *waves* I've had it my self. I still get the occasional flash back
Oh fucking snap.
We have to keep in mind that she probably doesn't understand how PTSD works, and how badly it can affect someone.
My sister has a friend who's husband has PTSD, and it is bad enough that sometimes the police has to be called because of how he gets. Everyone is in danger from it, because of how his mind works when it happens.
So since Mugger probably doesn't understand it... well, this will most likely be the most trying time of her life. Well, second most trying, at least. It's going to be so sad, though. I don't wanna see Mugger cry... T~T
And now it is time for Mugger to understand that humans are both more fragile and more erratic then she is.
@M-Red: She was treating the whole thing as something silly when she went to see the psych. She doesn't have experience with this, and now she's going to see exactly what he's dealing with.
While her view isn't exactly fair, she doesn't get that what he's been through has been some pretty rough stuff, and that he's scared she'll judge him for his actions.
ted the saiyanfox
shit is about to get real folks
Stop.. you are blowing it...
Way to go Muggs, always with the bull in a china shop.
Either he's going to just tell her to get out or it's time for one grim reality check, with a side order of recounted nightmare.
Oh well, she got most of her kind slaughtered, and now has to live in hiding... What does SHE know about his issues... I understand him, but c'mon, she's 100% right here
I think its hard for her to understand things she's not quite equipped to experience. She may have been on the other side of lab incident. The thing is that her augmented brain and training helped her avoid going to the places that Deniz has gone. The way she talked about humans being brittle suggests that she doesn't have an appreciation for what humans can go through or what Deniz is facing. She's trying to understand this the way an engineer understands a piece of broken machinery. She can't help being a bull in a china shop.
Ha? Mugs, what's wrong with you? Since what you become so demanding and... bitchy?
Deniz is too focused on trying to keep it under the pillow that he's not aware how much it sticks for the other person sharing the bed with him.
Muggers is conditioned as a supersoldier; sensitivity to many issues that aren't entirely foreign, stress being one of those issues, will likely be dulled to the highest degree. She was trained and raised knowing she'd be superior to regular humans, and she wants her potential mate to keep up at all costs... Another folly to be fully aware of, as any relationship is a give-and-take partnership.
When the wind blows south, don't look west for rain.
The rightmost speech bubble in panel three needs the word "doesn't" deleted.
@Bystander: Cunt is a very strong word. I recently watched an episode of a show where a lesbian couple were going through hardship. One of them recently lost a leg and was understandably upset about it. But she just kept taking her frustrations out on her other. That's not how it should be. It took the girl a very harsh speech just like Mugger just gave for the paraplegic to suck it up and get on her feet (she has a new prosthetic as well). I think it just takes some tough love every now and again.
@Bystander: Wow, watch it buddy. Those are some bold and unnecessary words.

I wouldn't go that far. The girls don't really know what its like to be human, They are far more than animals, they are varing levels of human with Animal DNA, and a made to have less mental and physical weakness then we do.
BUt they are weak in understanding socity, and family, family duty, responsibilities, and overall just outsiders. A lot of this seems "Easy" to them because they have very little connection to the human world, and all the baggage that comes with it.
She's not insensitive (yet) but she is Needy for sure.
This is actually a lot more healthy than it seems to be coming across. You have a man who ran away from the problem but never got away from it. He makes money and spends his life specifically to try and fix his mistakes by aiding the Den. She may seem insensitive but that is only because he has done nothing but push her away on the issue. She was bound to get flustered after all she does is thrown back in her face.
lmao get a load of this faggot (Guest)
@Bystander: How to spot the virgin.
@Vawkis: Thanks for your service and thanks for you insight.
@Mr.Grin: Mugger is putting EVERYTHING on the line here. She obviously loves Deniz enough to risk it all. What she has done is real tough love. "And the gates of Hell shall not prevail" 'cause, buddy she's sure storming them right now.

I'll freely admit I'm not a psychologist, but it seems to me that what's eating the guy is guilt more than anything else. The reason that the others can't get that is guilt isn't likely a part of their worldview. Remember they were designed, bred, and trained from the very start to be killers. It's what they were born to do and we've never seen them having much of a hint of regret at all the deaths they caused. While they obviously were hurt by what happened in the incident at the lab they WERE the wronged party.
Deniz, on the other hand, wasn't, sure he's a soldier, likely the best of the best and he'd have been inured at least somewhat to the thought of killing. But he likely wasn't born to it and I doubt he ate, slept and breathed it from the moment of his birth. On the other had he was also blackops, he more likely than not expected to only ever fight the hardest fights, to go into situations few other fighters ever could, against foes that while not as good as him were still fighting men that COULD put up a resistance and possibly kill him. And here he is gunning down children who huddling naked against a wall in abject terror, that'd fuck anyone up, combine that with the humiliation and agony of losing his leg, being drummed out of the unit he likely sweated gallons and bled buckets for all right on top of each other, and still being eaten alive with doubt and guilt, yeah no shit he's an unholy mess that the Hybrids, and mugger in particular considering I sincerely have my doubts she was ever in a combat situation before the raid, can't seem to understand.
Well that's my two cents, I freely admit I'm neither soldier nor psychologist so I may be completely wrong. But that's what I see, take it as you will.
Honestly, Deniz is right, how would she know anything about what he went through? She CAN'T, because he won't say anything about it. I realize it must be difficult, and yes, Mugger is being a "cunt" about it, but all Deniz needs to do is say five words, break the ground a little. That's the most anyone should ask him, just to start.

As a current serving member of the United States Army, I can feel where Deniz is coming from. The violent flashes, the agony of having to suffer through what he was ordered to do, and being told to "carry on, soldier", its the absolute most terrifying thing to ever experience. I hate when my family tries to ask, "How was deployment?" or even worse "How many people did you kill?" I might not have physical wounds, but by god my mind is filled with bullet holes and the many gallons of innocent and hostile blood. And so is Deniz. The poor guy had to shoot un-armed, non-hostile creatures and turn the cheek when they cried for mercy, tear apart families just to get his targets, and get his leg chopped off by a wolf that was defending herself and her sisters. God just writing that out gave me the chills.
Creator of My Life With Fel, thank you, this is getting VERY rich in content and I am greatly enjoying this web comic. Please keep it up.
@Vawkis: o3o/)/) see straight from the horses mouth! someone whom has been there and done that! knows how it is!
@ThePinkBani: I totally agree with you, it's been mugger who has done all this stuff for him and all she's got back is "I'm not gonna to see a shrink about my problem"
"What do I know about your issues? I know everything you've told me. And that is why I know so little about them."
@Bystander: he has no right to mad at her. despite the problem he has.mugs is just trying to help him
@Jonic15: me thinks muggys is gonna hafta carry a PTSD patient to the dockturs office, kicking and screaming. so get your bondage gear out and lube up the piggy! -Deniz in this case- cus the Dockturs gonna hafta probe more then his brain! MWAHAHAH!!!
@Lynix Spade: Thanks for a serving soldier's perspective. While it's true there's a gap in comprehension between Mugs and Deniz, she's at least trying to honestly bridge it as best she knows how.
I also think her points about putting a fair amount into the relationship and not getting much confirmation from him are legitimate. If Deniz wants to actually make progress with his trauma and with her, he needs to work at both more than he has.
@Smallfoot: You nailed it. Deniz' reluctance is understandable, but he can't use it as a crutch forever. And Mugger just called him on it.
You know when you push people too far and you just can't keep your mouth shut. I think Mugger may of pushed him a bit too far and maybe she shouldn't of said anything.
However it would be better if he does talk about it and get therapy. Rather then keep it bottled up inside.
