Leave Carley Alone

Lee should avoid any romantic or otherwise “close” relationship with Carly.

And in a nutshell here is why:

Carly already knows about Lee’s criminal past and can expose him at any time and on any whim. So she already has him by the balls. If they decided to get intimate she will then have him by the balls and the heart. She at anytime can make any choice she wants and will have to become number 1 priority to Lee trumping even Clementine. To make matters worse if they have a falling out then in her emotional rage or vengeance she may expose Lee’s past.

I hope the game gives Lee the option to become "close" with Carly, the romance drama would be ironically comforting in an otherwise hopeless time.

Lee should avoid any romantic relationship with Carly at all costs and keep her at a arms distance.

    Nope. I actually don't care for Nietzsche. However I am not well read on his work, but what I have been taught about him I didn't like. So I owe him a reading in the near future.

    I was being sarcastic to you earlier about Prometheus. I thought it fitted with the idea of me being better than everyone else.

    But I was serious to the other poster who told me how she felt about me and my views, and I was serious when I told you that people need to read more (and think) instead of just jumping on the bandwagon of buzz words like "rights" and "natural"

    That's it. If anyone else wants to tell me off as the other poster did just PM me. I won't insult or argue and I will thank you as kindly and as genuinely as I did the other poster. As for the thread let's stay on topic, and I apologize for tacking it off course.

    But I do think, to be respectful to all our community members, the Telltale team, and everyone from California, that it is important to not refer to homosexual relationships as "California crap" or call people of that orientation "sexual deviants."

    All of our fans are important to us. Whether or not you get to romance other characters will always be decided based on what is best for our story - not on restricting what sexual orientation the player can be.

    Of course, it is as you say.

  • @The_Cheshire_Cat said: Can't recall the characters names so I have to use adjectives but in the comics in the prison scene, the black football character and the white woman. When michonne came in and started sleeping with the football character, and the effect it had on the whole group in regards to how it affected the white woman. That was real.

    Well, to be fair, the fallout came from Tyreese, the man you are referring to, being seduced by Michonne. But here's the rub: Tyreese was in a relationship with Carol, the Caucasian woman you are referring to, and the fallout came from Tyreese cheating on Carol.

    The same won't occur for Lee with Carley because, A.) They've yet to be a relationship and they are free to go that route, and B.) Lee being with Carley and vice versa won't be cheating, now will it? Should Lee go after, say, Lily AFTER going with Carley, on the other hand...

    Thanks for the names.

    Yeah, didn't Carol walk in on them or something, the very first time they were sexual? The other characters were upset with Tyreese and were trying to talk him into making up with Carol. It played a role in the interactions in the group.

    But you know I really appreciate that in the comic, and if it is done in the game, that would be neat.

    As a native Californian, growing up 45mins north of San Francisco, one of the largest gay communities in the world, I must say for myself, I have no problem what so ever with any orientation that could possibly be included in the game.

    I dont see any real reason to include or exlclude characters based on sexual preference.. It's a survive the zombie apoc game and Im sure no zombie would discriminate based on the same preferences.

    It would be funny to see some zombie, with a hand on his hip saying, "yumm I cant wait to put that hunk o' Lee in my mouth **round the world arm wave w/ a double snap**

    but seriously, all just different people doing their own thing, trying to survive the same zombie apoc.

    Becides, let's say we find ourselves in a clothing store, we've been wearing the same clothes for months.. Who better to help us look fab when we go back out searching for food? :D

    Mature Logic. Always appreciated on a Forum. Thank you, TellTale, for keeping an eye on things (*bow*)

    Let Lee marry Doug I say. (*Chuckles*) I mean, in my continuity it's all about Carly but, hey, I'm always in support of alternate timeline romances of every which way.
    :D
