To paraphrase Sara, “will you just! Kiss him! Already!”
OK, so “Gabe”. Doesn’t sound very feminine. Though I *suppose* it could be an abbreviation of Gabrielle.
I’m still guessing “bishy” rather than “babe”, though.
Gabrielle would probably be shortened to “Gabby”
trans (ftm) is my guess
I may be generalizing, but if I were to go by the skin tone and shirt… I’d say it’s Gabriela.
Ah, right! That was the original name I came up with when I first thought up the comment, but it had flitted out of my memory by the time I actually started writing. My memory is pretty bad, lol.
Gabe was referred to as he/him both in the comic and by Satellite.
My crazy theory? Gabe is short for the name of an angel. Angels are beautiful, crazy strong, don’t have a gender (and they are how the west fights demons, so it works well for the story.)
Gabe is either literally an angel, or else a nephilim!
Are some of the weird looks because left handed handshake?
Very sinister handshaking. @.@;
I see what you did there…
What is handshake?
noun: handshake; plural noun: handshakes
an act of shaking a person’s hand with one’s own as a greeting.
an exchange of standardized signals between devices in a computer network regulating the transfer of data.
So… I’ve noticed that in a lot of webcomics and cartoons, people shake their left hands instead of their right hands.
Why is that?
Probably just happens in the staging of the page. Sometimes it works better to have people in positions that wouldn’t be what’s expected.
Also, you’d be surprised just how many people get confused by a 180 degree switch in scene but dont noticed a left handed handshake. I can see how Satellite 9 didn’t want to flip to a back view with the sea in the background and then have to endure people asking “but wasn’t Gabe sitting on the left?” Although IMO that would have been great staging and worth it.
Maybe a lot of artists were in Scouts?
I went to summer camp and met this person who said their name was “George”. After thinking George was a guy for the better part of a week, I found out that George was actually Georgette. Talk about awkward.
That face when you realize you’ve stumbled into a Famous Five book…
Now I feel like binge-watching Dead Like Me.
I’m really interested in learning more about who Gabe is as a person and what their personality is like. They seem like a cool person. >=3
Neil, Panel 2: “My love interest sense is tingling!”
just be careful neil for gabe could be a enemy spy………..or maybe your new love interest lol either which way the plot thickens and the mystery that is Gabe is still a mystery
Don’t leave, Gabe. We need to bask in your beauty some more…..I mean, um, *coughs* is it warm in here, or is it just me? Gosh, that heating should not be up so high someone should fix it.
Is Neil one of those persons who has problems with choosing a hand when shaking hands like me?
Well Gabe did present their left hand which may have thrown Neil off as usually people stick out their right hand to shake.
Weird, most people I’ve met shake with the left.
Awkward Neil is Awkward
Will we be seeing more of Gabe in the future or will this be his only appearance?
Just caught up, and I am intrigued at this turn of events.
Of course this person’s name is Gabe, nice and neutral…
The mystery continues. we shall, in fact, never know. EVER
Since when is gabe a gender neutral name?
Gabe -> Gabriel
Gabe -> Gabrielle
Gabe -> Gabby
Gabe -> Gabriella
Cuz its short for Gabriel(le) which is a gender neutral first name. At least where I come from.
where i come from i always hear gabe for boys, and gabby for girls. i as of yet don’t know any women who go by gabe but i’, sure i’ll meet one at some point because why not?
i think Neil needs a lesson about the Birds and the Bees. lmao
It’s quite impressive how this character has been around for a few weeks now and nobody can even begin to nail down their gender
Opponent is raising hand –
Does not compute –
Only possible solution:
NEIL FIGHT MODE
“I’m gay, by the way.”
“Oh, uh, me too.”
“I mean, I’m Neil!”
*Starts the betting pool on which of his cousins are going to have one look at Gabe and go ‘Mine!’
Personally I quite like the left handshake, because panel 3 says so much more than ‘nice to meet you’. It’s more welcoming than if the right arm were reaching across, closing off the body.
It’s like in Disney’s Aladdin, when Aladdin is standing on the magic carpet and he says to Princess Jasmine, “Do you trust me?” And he holds out his hand in a similar fashion.
Using the left is a very open body language, which is obviously even more frightening to Neil. And much more intriguing to the audience.
Great views of people sticking around in the background of panel 2.
The ship has been made:
OP, you all saw it! they touched hands, now they have to get married forever.
“Don’t look at me like that! You’ll make me pregnant.”
A no-prize to the first to ID the quote.
OMG Gabe is adorable. But I’m biased, he reminds me of a girl I totally had a crush on @.@
This is still my guess:
Gabe is short for the name of an angel. Angels are
beautiful, crazy strong, don’t have a gender (and they are how the west
fights demons, so it works well for the story.)
The question now is if he’s here to offer a trial and judgement (to see if Neil uses his powers selfishly) or if the nosebleed was a genuine accident. :p
Ah shit. I keep reading right to left. I’ve got manga on the brain.
I don’t care about gender, Gabe is hot.
