All right, so, about Matt's reveal from the earlier strips, and how I made the choice to have him and Lillian have a relationship in the past:
This was one of those choices where I KNEW that many won't like it, but went for it because of the things we can learn from it.
What things? Mostly things that counter a lot of assumptions (which I do enjoy doing, it's a guilty pleasure).
- it tells that both LT and Matt, who are presumably ignorant about anything sexual, have had (bad) experience with it
- note that at the time I didn't yet know the details on their experience together, though I might have had an idea (which full disclosure was taken from a similar experience from my own past so keep that in mind before you either wish Matt's murder, or think he doesn't deserve any of it, neither are what I consider "the good side")
- this situation is also a "tough" lesson for Roomie: she would have never imagined that Matt, someone she might consider as too insecure and awkward to ever had had any sort of romantic or sexual relationship with the person she lo-- I mean, she really really likes ;)
This situation can give her some things to think about, or rethink.
