Well, even if they haven't been together in person, the interactions have been reverberating throughout the whole storyline.
Wherever Charles is, Mary is 'in potenia' and vice versa, right? I almost picked the trio in the survey, but... so far, Lori's still just a foil for the other two. She's gaining as a main character in her own right, but my favorites are still Charles and Mary.
Romance is always a great sideshow, but for me, the main story of this strip is the story of a great friendship. It's a heartwarming, incomprehensible whole that is greater than the sum of its otherwise rather bleak parts... Which us gothy doomlovers kinda like to start with.
Even with a happy ending looming in the distance for Charles (maybe) his truest and first connection with humanity is through Mary. And hers through him.
They're funny that way.
And hey, that's what archives are for, right?
