To this day I'm not sure how to feel about K-A's decision here. She says she really wants this, but given their interactions up to then, her fears over the text, her nervous examination of herself in the mirror... would she really have suggested this under other circumstances, or did she cave to perceived pressure?

(That said, wow, first two panels of #25...)

I wish there'd been more time to explore the Duane-Michelle dynamic. T did have this to say, after the comic's end:

TCampbell wrote:Duane and Michelle were tight for a while, and both they and others thought that their bond might blossom into a romance. It didn't happen, largely because they weren't ready. Both of them had some pretty heavy baggage from their last kinda-sorta relationships, and they were better off helping each other deal with that as friends. By the time they indeed might have been ready for more, graduation was fast approaching, and the romantic disappointments of most of Michelle's friends left her a bit reluctant to get back on that horse. Duane might not have turned down a date at that point, but he never pushed for one either.

T also said that Duane eventually told his close friends he was a practising Muslim and that "Michelle was always a little awkward around him after that."
