This does not count as a name.
They both look so happy and red is just too cute! I can't take this
Wow, hit like half of the checklist right there.
She sure has a way with words.
She couldn't help herself.
That's certainly one way to greet your gf.
I've slowly been starting to ship these two
well, hello, there
Calling it now: they're gonna rock the casbah. pizza
Quick Question, is Red a girl or boy? I used to think of her/him as a girl, now I'm less sure
How on earth did she get the flowers? 7:(
That's good, it's a bit of a mouthful
Not big on subtlety then... ?? :)
I was briefly horrified by that last panel until I looked at the author's comment.
ARE THEY GETTING MARRIED?!
It has an interesting ring to it
Just the standard culture of Forest Folk turned humans.
Thank you for that rather important clarification, Tom.
Are you sure?
Oh thank god I was worried that she'd be stuck with that as her name..
10outta10 Red. 10. Outta. 10.
That's the spirit!
I sure hope not :/
Here Comes the Blue???
r they getting gay fairy married
Awww it's like they're getting married!!!
That's not very nice....
If it wasn't for Tom's clarification, I would've screamed.
She's beautiful. And thanks for the heart attack, Tom.
Well, a typical "code red", I suppose.
Well, I totally called "Buttface" and I'm super glad it doesn't count as a name. Hopefully she does get the name Blue then!
But what if we want this to be the name?
I swear, it's like this is their wedding day, with Red being the groom and Blue the bride.
You know, I call my husband that all the time.
That's not how it works? Not the first thing you say?
Last panel is definitely in my list of top faces of this comic
You took the words right out of my mouth, Red.
I see nothing wrong with this name.
Smooth as ice Red. Please, teach me your ways.
"This does not count as a name."
Fae never truly grow up.
This is a lot like when I meet women for the first time.
I'm upset her name can't be Hybdubf.
More dyke shit? I'm gay myself, but come on it's getting to be a bit much.
look at these two dorks.
i ship them so bad now.
gay. love em
ITS LLLLLLLLESBIAN TIME
Red is my spirit animal.
Are they getting married?
Oh please yes...
if that long name becomes a name, will her first name be Big and last name be Face, hence known as Big Face?
Everything I read is getting gayer and I love it.
ohh, this is actually really nice and pretty.
I SHIP IT.
And so, she came to be known as You Big Dumb Ugly Butt Face.
WHAT IS THAT HER NAME NOW?!!!!!!!!
"Their culture is full of subtlety."
Me every time I see my BFF
As terms of endearment are, this may well be a marriage proposal for them.
Such a tease.
Oh Gods the cuteness continues
I'm glad you clarified that. Because it would also be a hilarious plot twist.
Best beginning to marriage vows ever
Haha! Doing great so far, Red.
Whoever catches that bouquet is gonna get named next!
Please throw the bouquet at Red's face, Ybdubf.
BE MORE ROMANTIC! *Shakes his fist*
Yep, totally nailed it.
So she's going to get a name that isn't Blue, right?
Thnaks fro clafirying
*This does not count as a name.*
Oh good, I was worried for a moment.
Why does she have flowers?! Where did she even get flowers?!
I observe an outbrust of enjoyment, hiden in some jerkspeak...
Awww she's so pretty! >w
I -thought- I got some odd wedding vibes last page...
"Hey you big dumb ugly buttface! You look beautiful!"
See? You can totally have both and have it be okay and oh please don't mess this up Red D:
Red had a way with words.
I'm so glad red and blue are getting married
I get the names are to avoid naming someone...but the insults...im sure theirs a positive way to say that comment & be awesome...meh
I can take the name Blue because depicted on the panel is Big Dumb Ugly Butt Face.
...glad that didn't count
That's faerie-language for "Oh my god, you look sooo gorgeous!"
That's exactly how I would greet my best friend... if I had one. Maybe there's a reason for that?
(sniff) Such good friends...
Are you surrrrrrrrrrrrre?
Are u sure they're JUST best friends?
I adore panel 3. And I like the way it's a little reminiscent of a wedding, with the crown and bouquet of flowers.
Nooooooooooooooo! ...wait, that doesn't count. Thank you, Tom! (She's beaufable, by the way....)
Smooth pick up line Red, I'll have to take notes.
You had one job Red. You had one job. And on a more serious note i am glad that doesn't count as a name because that is a horrible name
This is either going very well or very very very badly.
Woah pipe down Sparky, that's kinda long for a name, and a whole mouthful of it too!
Too late, "Buttface" is canon now!
Red is a smooth operator.
I kinda think it counts as a name.
Oh, phew. I was prepared, but for a short moment I feared for her name.
Funny ceremony 'though. Trying to envision this in a wedding ceremony at the alatar :)
Happy big dumb ugly butt face is happy. I love the wedding parallels here it's hilarious XD Ahhh ma sweet babbies are gettin' names...
She screwed this up didnt she?
Still low-key freaking about Annie's apparent selling of her soul or whatever. Juuuuust a thought
More lesbians! WE NEED MORE LESBIANS!!!
tfw your friend is too beautiful
Aw maaaaaan, Red's in LOOOOOVE!:D
Real smooth like
To the person who called this on Wednesday, good job.
I love how she's beautiful and BLACK!:) That makes me happy.
Glad you clarified that. I was a bit worried.
I'm glad that doesn't count as a name. "Big dumb ugly butt-face" takes forever to write out on all those school essay papers & forms.
Oh my. I thought it was a naming ceremony, but it looks more like they gonna marry.
Ooh is there a name-giving ceremony this time since it's not an accident?
Well, we're off to a great start.
Yes it does.
Oh thank you for clarifying Tom - that would be a seriously complicated name to be stuck with. :D
Awww they really do love eachother a lot
Oh thank god Tom. I was really worries there till I saw your comment!
And henceforth she was known as Buttface.
All the ceremony seems a little unnecessary for naming someone. This also looks suspiciously like a wedding. Also: Nailed it.
I'm very glad for that note, because I was genuinely worried she'd just been named that for a moment, and the rest of the story was just going to be Red getting slapped silly for a chapter.
The les yey is strong in this one.
Well that went well.
I love Red!
I didn't realize he was so deeply in love ..
Red you ruined everything
Fuck sake, Red.
but what if it does tho?
Now this looks like a proposal. TREASTISE.
Is this yuri
Okay her name is "you big dumb ugly butt face".
I'm just joking.
Smooth Red, real smooth
!!!!!! oh boy!!!!!
Recommended reading flashback: the chapter "Red Returns."
What a cute wedding.
Just gals being pals
I see, her "friend."
Annie doesn't even know that by cultural terms she's actually matchmaking, does she?
I just haven't been able to get this out of my head. What the HECK is Blue wearing? I've got this horrible feeling that Annie is going to shortly be performing her first ad-hoc marriage ceremony since being Chosen as the Forest's Medium by Coyote!
all fairies become female humans all animals become male
red gets all the best pages of gunnerkrigg
This is super gay and I love it so much
@John Doe All fairies become female students
There's the Red I know!
I'm starting to think that loading up the comic with ambient gay is Tom's way of softening the blow for the fans when Annie and Kat don't end up together.
Would've been funny if it became her name, though.
Wow, Red, you know how to greet your bestest friend. Now give her a decent name and have fun in Miss Bugsy's (whatshername?) class!
On another note: I honestly wonder what happened to the tic tocs...
Omg, Red, you're too adorable. (Just kiss her already... I mean, give her name. Yeah.)
A true poet.
So basically all Faery kind have Tourette's syndrome as a racial trait. That's pretty funny.
That would be a funny racial descriptor in monster manuals for creatures like goblins or kobolds as well in fantasy games. I don't think anyone has capitalized on the comedy of this idea yet.
61 chapters and so many years into this awesome story, it's strange to see readers still saying "more lesbians!?" instead of just being happy for Red and Blue.
My name is Red,
Violets are blue.
Big Dumb Ugly Butt Face
Is my name for you.
*facepalms, giggling to death*
Real smooth talker.
Should have seen it coming. I guess this is romantic relationship number three then?? There's Kat and her girlfriend, Zimmy and her girlfriend, Smitty and Parley, William and Janet, and... does Robot and Shadow count? It's hard to keep track of all this.
Heh, so much blush! I can ship this!
Tom, the lighting and shadows on this page are beautiful. Great work man!
Based on previously viewed interactions, I'm gonna guess that "Big dumb ugly buttface" is actually a term of affection amongst faeries.
John Doe - All the former faeries are officially girls. I say "officially", since I can't speak for how Red chooses to identify. Maybe he thinks of himself as male, maybe she just likes boyish outfits.
their ship name shall be Bled. BlueXRed Bled... That's kinda a sad ship name...
"This does not count as a name." I very much hope so!
red is red
blue is blue
a big dumb ugly butt face is you
ahh such a cute page
I am Red; Red is me.
Does not count as a name. - Oh, good.
Wait, are they getting married?!
I SHIP IT AAAA
this update added ten years to my lifespan
kaleihobiocbeoab get me a gangway im boarding this ship right now
are you sure, tom? are you sure?
AAAAUUUUUGH THE ADORABLENESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!
Lol Big dumb ugly butt face.
For the longest time I couldn't tell whether red was male or female...
Ship? Red and Blue?
Blue is sooooooo beautiful!
red is such a tomboy....
I'm crying big dumb ugly tears of joy
In the fourth panel, Red is blushing so much that the blush goes off of her face.
Aww. I think she likes her :)
so smooth red
It's marrying time!
A lot of people want this, right? Chances are it won't happen now...
Red and Blue are girls. p.319
Well shoot, now this makes me wonder if Red was robbed of a 'wedding ceremony' of sorts because of Annie's accidental naming.
I have an answer for that! When fairy becomes human they get to stay human, but when any other animal becomes human they always become male. Ch. 48 Pg. 24
Nice fan art of Tracer and Symmetra.
sick of comments asking if Red is a boy/ implying her to be a boy... She's canonically a girl lmao
It's like you guys have never heard of the existence of gay people???? wow!!!!!
John Doe: Red is a girl like all ex-fairies, she's just not very feminine and for some reason she's wearing an old-fashioned military uniform. 💂♀️ OH I just figured out why Red's dressed like that! She liked the old timey outfits her friend made for "Jeanne's world" and found/made one for herself! That or she joined a Gunnerkrigg Court defense unit.
Red would be absolutely awful to share living space with. Run, pretty fairy, run! Escargot
That's how I greet my boyfriend! What a coincidence!
Help... I'm having feelings...
"This does not count as a name" Wew, I was really worried for a second it COULD, and be stuck with it :D
Is naming like a marriage thing?
I'd be cool with that as her name.
Nothing wrong with it, but you are either gay yourself or really really into lesbians hahahahahahaha
Is this a name-giving ceremony, or a wedding?
All fairies are Female. This has been covered! (Go Red N Blue though! Wooo!)
That cam right out of the BLUE (I have no life)
i wAs sO scared that was her nAme omg
Geez, Red is just AMAZING at compliments
Blue looks amazing. And a few comments down there are doubting Red's femininity, but a few pages ago I remember you saying that all pixies were female so the animals had to be male. So yeah Red's a girl. Just saying *thumbs up and slowly slides off the screen*
And this Annie is why you don't let fairies name other fairies.
Are we about to receive more adorable young lesbians?
This is for sure my new favorite page of GC
Sigh. I miss homestuck, too.

Hello all the shippers
What determines whether it's a name or not? That seemed like a perfectly legitimate naming ceremony to me. Or is "you" never counted as a name? xD
