you’re talking about the baggage line, i bet — i think you’re letting a turn of phrase derail literally everything else about those two i’ve written? like, since YAP 6 maybe? of course he knows. he knows everything. or suspects it enough to know she’ll bring it up when she’s ready.
in that moment she hurt his feelings. he thought a silly, untrue, mean-spirited thing about her for a second. then there was another panel and we all moved forward.
(i mean all that respectfully! i hope it didn’t come off cross. sorry.)
