Note to folks who are unaware of U.S. Laws: America's got this crazy law where you have to be 21 or older to purchase alcohol. Yeah, we know. Don't rub it in.

Since they technically share the same body, does drinking as Billy count?
Kupocake 10th Sep 2013, 10:18 AM Reply
Considering Carl never experiences anything BIlly does, that would be a no. That would also mean Billy is committing alcohol-based crimes for drinking as a one-and-a-half year old!

I think an exception can be made... he's at least a five year old mentally~
Kupocake 10th Sep 2013, 4:54 PM Reply
Five year olds shouldn't be drinking beer either!

What if you factor in dog years?
Kupocake 11th Sep 2013, 12:38 PM Reply
Isn't dog years like 7 human years for 1 dog year? I guess that'd make Billy 10 years old...

Aw, Dude really is quite the sweetheart. :) Carl needs to par-taaay! (Also, I'm about to start Crime & Punishment, so that's a coincidence.)

Carl's party levels are abnormally low, he'll need two injections of fun, stat!

Also good luck on the Dostoyevsky haha!

I'm a few months away from being 21 but I've never drank ever. I'm a boring person :P

I wonder how Carl will react to how... how.... not-exactly-Dude Dude is being.

A couple words of advice: take it slow, don't drink the whole drink in one go, and Pepto-Bismol is your best friend.

Works cited: personal experience.

Also, water between each bottle/glass/shot!

^ Agreed.

How can you not drink it all in one go if it's a shot?
Kupocake 11th Sep 2013, 10:37 AM Reply
Well technically shots should be done in one gulp, but I don't recommend shots being your first alcohol experience!

Avoid tequila if you want to remain upright.

Most useful advice ever, now I will be able to go drinking with my godmother and know how to handle it. Thanks guys.

Avoid tequila completely if it's not aged. *shudders*

Carl doesn't know the meaning of living.

...Carl? CARL! Gosh dang it Carl missed his line again in the last panel!

Jk, I actually really like the last panel! For the character you've made and the situation he's in, its just perfect. Especially to end a page on too. Great work!
Kupocake 10th Sep 2013, 3:11 PM Reply
Aw thanks! When I was drafting the story, having the page end like that panel was what I wanted, so I'm glad it came out the way it did!

Just remember NOT to include the drinking games, Dude, we don't want to overwhelm him his first time drinking now! ;3

Carl is the most adorable little grumpy werewolf.
Kupocake 10th Sep 2013, 3:13 PM Reply
Carl may not be the fiercest or most bloodthirsty werewolf, but he's got them all beat for grumpiness.
oennarts 10th Sep 2013, 4:16 PM Reply
I think Carl use to have some very close to him named William (nick names Billy) and that he died. And the trauma make is werewolf side took his identity. I'm thinking more about a twin brother that was it's complete opposit, wich would explain why "Billy" is so different from the real Carl. And also why he made such a sad face page 66 when he said: "I need a nap. And a long shower" after Dude confirming to him that he had an "alter-ego" named "Billy". He seemed pretty much on the burst to cry at that moment.

Sorry for the mistake of the previous comment. I restart:

I think Carl used to have in the past someone very close to him named William (nickname: Billy) and that he died (probably when Carl became a werewolf. And the trauma made his werewolf side take "Billy's" identity. I'm thinking more about a twin brother that was Carl's complete opposit, wich would explain why "Billy" is so different from the real Carl.

That's a really interesting theory, but as the creator, I'm obliged to neither confirm nor deny this!

Im gonna start crying. I dont know hwy but the way dude asks Carl if he can get to know him better and Carls posture just make me really upset. I feel like i need to give them both hugs and shush pap them into infinity.
Kupocake 11th Sep 2013, 11:50 AM Reply
If Dude was around, he'd give you a hug too! Carl... uh. Good luck trying to hug him.

(And I'm sorry if this page made you cry! D: )
washy-woman 11th Sep 2013, 11:58 AM Reply
I would wrestle Carl down and make him submit to my hugs. He's so skinny I could probably do it so, watch out Carl hugs incoming.
korimichele 11th Sep 2013, 12:12 PM Reply
Not sure how ANYONE could say no to Dude's earnest pleading face there. Wow.
Kupocake 11th Sep 2013, 12:36 PM Reply
If Carl says no, I think that's undeniable evidence that he's some kind of robot.
Finz_ 11th Sep 2013, 6:04 PM Reply
I can't imagine myself saying no to someone asking to honestly get to know me better. And if it was Dude..with that long face... D:
Carl, pleeeeease? It's the least Dude could do for ya.

I was sick on my 21st, but even before then I had no strong desire to do any underage drinking.

It's Dude's equivalent to puppy eyes.
josbell975 12th Sep 2013, 9:17 AM Reply
I'm 38 and never drank...and yes thats a current pic a few mo's old. Never saw the point, in H.S. all my friends drank and were stupid and "had a great time" but remembered nothing...That was the best way to keep me sober I guess, lol.

Not to say I dont have my vices, but they are legal, unless I do it in public, but thats old hat...joking! but about which part? hmmmm
Kupocake 12th Sep 2013, 12:41 PM Reply
Drinking heavily isn't all that great! But, having a drink or two to "loosen up" is actually quite pleasant and can be fun. I always just drink enough to stay comfortable and I avoid getting piss-drunk.

But I end up being the designated driver for my friends anyway.
aok666 12th Sep 2013, 2:02 PM Reply
I've found that drinking in the company of friends results in so much talking that each drink lasts ages (obviously not shots), so we actually hardly get drunk at all since we're consuming alcohol at almost the same rate the liver processes it.
This may not work if you're not as overly loquacious as me...

Dude, proceed with caution. You are entering the "Feelings Zone" of Carl. Danger lurks...

My parents have a framed photo of the first time they let me try some watered-down white wine (I was about seven). They love this photo, because it shows me pulling an incredible face - I have never seen anyone look more completely and utterly revolted in my life, and neither have my parents judging by how proud they are of this photo.
Wine is still very much not my drink of choice.

C'mon Carl, he's offering free drinks.

Dude: Why won't you come drink with me, Carl?
Carl: I do not drink with people...that is...that is my least favorite thing to do.
Dude: Tell me, Carl, what exactly you were doing before I came home.
Carl: Alright...well, I was in this room...
Dude: Okay?
Carl: I was uh...sitting in my bunk...
Dude: Yes...?
Carl: Reading a book...
Dude: Go on...
Carl: And uh...well, you walked in...
Dude: Okay?
Carl: So I creeped up on you
Dude: Yes...
Carl: And I...I got defensive when you mentioned drinking with me.
Dude: CAAAAAARRRRRLLL that's how you get to know people!
Carl: Oh, well, I didn't know that.
Dude: How could you not know that?
Carl: Yeah, I'm not in the wrong here. You suck!
Dude: What is wrong with you, Carl?
Carl: Well, I creep on people and turn into a werewolf, that's two things.

Lol, had to be done. :-D

Hey there! I just read through your archive, and I'm really loving this story so far! I can't wait to see where it goes.

Also, if Billy gets super drunk, does Carl wake up with the resulting hangover?
Kupocake 17th Sep 2013, 10:05 AM Reply
The actual drunkness doesn't transfer to Carl at all, but he does wake up in a hangover-like state regardless of whether Billy drank or not. Werewolf transformations are tricky business! :U

Also thanks for reading through! I'm glad you like it so far. : D
