Get comfy, it's story time.
Once upon a time, there was a young man named Marten Reed. Marten lived together with his computer pet Pintsize, who had a naughty sense of humor.
One day, Martin met a fullbodied young woman named Faye, who worked at a coffee shop and enjoyed teasing him. Martin was very attracted to Faye, and allowed her to tease him as much as she wanted in the hopes that she would like him better. When her house burned down, he invited her to stay at his home. She gladly accepted, and began living with Martin and Pintsize. They lived together for several years, having lots of funny and interesting adventures along the way. Strangely Faye and Martin never moved past being "just friends". Even though she thought he was attractive, they often talked for hours on end into the night, she liked his humor, and he saved her life on multiple occasions, she just couldn't bring herself to love him because her father committed suicide when she was small and that made her sad.
After years of leading him on and promising that she could eventually love him, Faye finally decided to tell Marten No so that he could move on and have a relationship with with her friend Dora instead. She then repeatedly had sex with Dora's brother Sven for several weeks on end for no particular reason while still living at Marten's house. This caused some trouble amongst their circle of friends, but they eventually made up and everyone was happy again.
The close knit group of friends slowly expanded over the years, adding more and more people as time went on, some of whom haven't been seen on-panel for years. As the cast grew, everyone continued to have funny and interesting experiences, but things were a bit more somber, with more focus on interpersonal drama and less intense random blasts of weird fun. Relationships dissolved and formed as the writer's fancy dictated, but never between Marten and Faye.
Eventually, there came a lake house party where all the characters wore swimsuits and made merry together. As it happened, one of the young women revealed that she was not as fat and misshapen as she claimed to be. It was her low self esteem that made her think every small flaw to be a horrid deformity, but her friends happily revealed that she was actually pretty, and that it was all in her head.
This is when Tumblr freaked out over the fact that Marigold wasn't as fat and ugly as they wanted her to be, and they hounded Jeph about it until he sought to escape into alcohol, leading to the accident where he stabbed his hand
Suddenly, Marten fell in love with a woman who he knew was secretly a man, and they have been together ever since. Faye struggled with her sudden crippling drinking problem and got over it quickly. The military grade combat robot named Bubbles, also known as Menstro, was introduced as a guard at an illegal robot fighting arena, but our group of friends rescued her from the clutches of the
morally sound and somewhat likeable EVIL robot in charge. Afterward, she and Faye opened a robot repair shop and they have been growing closer to each other without realizing it. Very recently, The neurotic clean freak Hannelore received a personal assistant from her billionaire parents, but this plot is ongoing.
You are now more-or-less caught up.
