Who are Will and Tiger Lilly? Depending on who you ask, they're Silicon Valley tech support drones, young nerds in love, or revered relationship gurus. Long ago, at the start of their ten-years-and-going relationship, this unconventional couple pledged to be honest and to be open... open, in every sense of the word. To their friends and countless workshop attendees, they're living proof that polyamory can succeed!
What none of those people know is that lately, something's not working between them... in fact, nothing's working. And maybe it's been more than just "lately"--problems have been building for years. Will's been self-medicating with distraction, mentally escaping into books, comics, and video games. Meanwhile Tiger's turning outward, cramming her Google Calendar with parties and dates. (Not that she had to turn outward all that far: Will and Tiger’s lovers Siouxie and Stephen are full time members of the household.) And it’s all been leading up to Tiger’s shattering announcement in the middle of a road trip: “Will, I just don’t see you as a primary partner anymore.”
Luckily for Will, this trip is leading them to the rural township of Butterly, Oregon, to visit Tiger’s father and new stepmother. From the moment the geezer newlyweds fling open the door to welcome them, it’s impossible not to see the glow of their love. Impossible not to feel jealous…and inspired. Could it be that, between games of D&D, Buffy theme nights, and hot tub parties, Tiger and Will are missing out on the joys of tradition and monogamy? And what are those joys, exactly? A comic consideration of love, lust, and geekdom in an era of expanding lifestyle possibilities.
