- When Tedd met Grace- "You know me better than I know myself!"
Oh snap. Has Tedd figured out what feels lurk in the heart of Elliot? Wait, I should probably let the next comic answer that. Never mind.
I grew up watching a lot of sitcoms. That's pretty much all I cared about that was on television in the late afternoon and evening, and over time, I started to get annoyed by recurring elements such as "will they / won't they" plots. At the time of the first comic,
I was thinking stuff like "I'm not gonna do anything like that. I'm going to cut right to the chase and BAM! Characters will be together."
I have since, um... Obviously changed my position on that matter. Such scenarios can become exhausting, but there's such a thing as getting characters together too quickly ("hey, it's season two! Let's get these two together now! It's not like we'll last ten seasons
"), and then there are couples who I feel are best left never getting together prior to the finale, if at all.
Bringing this back to my own comic, I feel I prooooobably should have made Tedd and Grace getting together more of a gradual thing. It's no wonder Tedd can't describe the hows and the whys; he was basically blindsided by a spontaneous relationship. They're together now and I fear too much for my own personal safety to attempt a contrived means of making them have to re-get together, but yeah. Hindsight. 20/20. Whatevs. Moving forward.
