It's probably super obvious, but this was originally written as part of a two-pager. I have complex feelings about this one given the split of information, but I really do want to limit the amount two-pagers in the future (I say this, as of course I have one coming up next week anyway). But in this case, of course Brother Arthur has more to say, and we will hear the rest of it next time (though I'm sure I'll still be asked "why didn't Arthur bring up [this] or [that]?" no matter what).

We'll get to it though. In the meantime, I'm sure there's plenty to focus on right here.

I think it's time we find out Quinton's last name.

He's has that look, like "really, this is what you got?" I doubt Quentin plans on letting Todd face the consequences of his actions.

@Climaxstriker:

His last name is Morrison. I don't know that it's ever said in the comic, but that information's been available for years.

@LittleLynn84:

As far as I can remember it wasn't. I just got all my info on the characters from the TVtropes page and from what I can remember after binging the comic.

Guess someone forgot to add Quenton's last name by mistake when updating the TVTropes Character page.

Ah well, there goes the "Todd is Quenton's son theory." Would've definitely explained why he was protecting him.

Sorry if I phrased that like I was demanding answers. I REALLY suck at communication at times. Upon seeing Quenton's reaction I thought "Oh fuck, I think we're about to find out Quenton's last name." and phrased that poorly. ^_^;;

@Climaxstriker: Well, considering Father Quenton is a Catholic Priest (most Protestant Priests are called "Reverend"), there was never really any chance of him having any legitimate children, considering his Vow of Celibacy.

That said, Quenton might be a hypocrite, having an illicit affair and siring a child with another man's wife. Such a child would not be able to take 'Morrison' as a surname without answering some very inconvenient questions.

TL;DR - Todd could still be Quenton's bastard, but that was never really likely.

relatively related

reply

@KF2376: I still think there’s a special relationship between Quenton and Todd. If they aren’t related, maybe Quenton abused Todd and is blackmailed or at least feels guilty enough to spare him.
Abuse happens a lot in Catholic schools...

I wonder what would Quenton's reaction be. This time the victims are apparently straight girls, so he can't use homophobic rules to protect Todd. There's no legal loophole now.

@LittleLynn84:

And now that the lawyers are involved, can the local media be far behind? If Father Quenton thought news of a pregnant valedictorian getting out would be bad, how would word about a violent, perhaps disturbed, male student roughing up dozens of girls while the school did nothing sound?

Um... Spoilers?

reply

@MariaCinnamonRoll:
The character page is set up for NEW readers and for those who need just a quick refresher on a character{or to find out their last name} so saying Ky should be added to Main chara's causes spoilers which Lynn is trying to avoid because at the beginning of the story Ky was just the downstairs neighbor with their sister Heather ie. an Other character so sorry I don't think that's ever going to happen just like Em is still considered a 'classmate' even though we now know she is so much more the Character sheet is for New readers and probably won't be updated unless we get a significant new character.
Sorry to dash your hopes.

Hummm - Father Quintion looks rather angry all the time. The fact that he is now looking at 22 accounts of harassment of young women, he's not going to be able to ignore Todds' behavior. This may not get Maria re-instated or safe. It may however get Todd on the receiving end of what he really needs. A adult to tell him to knock it off.

However i get the sense that Todd might be being pressured at home or by others to have a girlfriend. That would explain his stress and hostility at rejection. Or He just believes he is entitled to things he is not. We'll see.

Not sure I can get on the Brother Arthur hype train just yet. This really does feel like the bare minimum for someone in his position, however low Quenton has set the bar.

@Guest: Considering the record of the Catholic Church in dealing with bad priests ... he's quite possibly justified in taking such an attitude.

Hmm...

While I would love for Todd to get proper comeuppance, it's still possible he gets off with a warning.

Right now he's got a slap of the wrist, and evidence is being presented which says, "that wasn't good enough", but that doesn't mean they're going to instantly elevate it to giving him the boot.

What I mean by that is, it's possible that instead of getting expelled, he is simply given a stern warning. Actionable evidence doesn't mean the action taken is as strict as we'd want it to be.

So, from this, we can safely say SOMETHING will be done (trying to ignore it is something which even Father Quentin could tell would cause trouble), but what will be done won't necessarily be as harsh as it should be. (Sadly.)

Would be nice if it was, though!

@Guest: because he is evil and:

Therefore it's there to tell us how evil he is.
