    “My Hero!”

    • Mystery girl

      “Mwaah!”

  • fairportfan

    Okay, now I am even more embarrassed than I was before I got this embarrassed and I am sure I am going to say something dumb and I think I just did…

    Uhhh … what’s your cell number?

    • His cell phone was in the burning apartment with his pants.

  • Tsapki

    A whole new world…of awkward.

  • Mars Bar

    : >

  • ∫Clémens×ds

    Welp, I was more or less exactly right in my predictions, wasn’t I

  • Valerie Cardona

    Love the expressions on that last panel.

    Also, Al girl, you seem to have lost/misplaced your game. 🙂

    • scottfree

      The only time relationships and Allison have even been mentioned (other than Feral hitting on her) featured Allison worrying that her powers would harm her partner. I don’t think she has much game to lose.

  • ~I can show you the world~

  • Abel Undercity

    I can only assume that Lois Lane knows every fire escape, roof access, and conveniently placed balcony on every building around the Daily Planet within a two-block radius.

    • dragon

      or to take it even further “hey Lois, supes forget to take you back again?” “Yep, see you soon carl”

    • Meghan

      “SERIOUSLY SUPERMAN. DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD THIS IS IN HEELS? Ahhh screw it.”

    • ∫Clémens×ds

      It made me chuckle to realize that the new movie incarnation preemptively took care of that problem by flattening the whole of Metropolis.

    • Kid Chaos

      Are they flirting? FLIRTERERS!

  • ZBass

    And now I’m suddenly reminded that Alison is a teenager ^_^

  • Dean

    Man, he is really working that damsel-in-distress thing. I was really suspicious about this guy, but that last panel is too adorable for words.

    • lizasweetling

      look at that smirk!
      at this point, even if he’s evil, we’ll love him

      • Gene Wirchenko

        1) Maybe he has caught on that he is having an effect on her.

        2) “Oh, boy! Another ride with a superhero.”
        3) Both.

  • Dartangn

    Daaaaaaayum. Pimping ain’t easy, Allison. Love the expression definitelynot!Patrick has in the last panel.

  • William Lancaster

    That has got to be the most unique way to get a cuddle from a girl I have ever seen.

    “Hi, I’m stuck on this random rooftop. Can you fly me to the ground?”

    I did like that Allison asked his consent first before picking him up. You do not wrap your arms around someone without prior approval outside of life threatening emergencies. Especially if said arms can crush concrete.

  • sammybaby

    ALISON AND HOT GUY, SITTING ON A ROOF
    K I S S… uh… SHIA LABEOUF.

    Sorry, that one kinda got away from me.

  • Daniel Vogelsong

    I can show you the worrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrld
    Shining, shimmering splennnndid
    Tell me, MegaGirl, now when did
    You last let your heart decide?

  • Darkoneko Hellsing

    This is so adorable, especially that last panel <3 squeeee

  • Pol Subanajouy

    Awkward Al is the best Al. I have nothing else to say.

  • CanuckAmuck

    ♪♫ Somebody’s blushing! ♫♪

  • Guilherme Carvalho

    That last panel is what you find in the encyclopedia when you look up “awkward boners”.
    (yes, I mean that for both of them)

    • ∫Clémens×ds

      He seems totally fine, though. Not bothered the slightest.
      Maybe that’s why she’s so embarrassed. Not because he’s sexy, but because he’s waaay too comfortable parading his erected genitals.
      (Lessons on how to ruin genuinely adorable moments)

  • Sendaz

    The looks in the last panel are simply the best…
    A bit of adoration on his part, her’s is like “Don’t look at the cute guy, just fly. Don’t think about the cute guy, just fly. etc…”

  • Ray Arani

    So so awkward. And more gender role reversal. <3 😀

  • Hawthorne

    *flies at superspeed through an Italian restaurant, florist and jewelry store*

    *lands in Hawaii*

    Brois Lane: Are- are we in-
    Alison: THIS IS ALL SO SUDDEN YES YES I DO

    • Valerie Cardona

      Brois Lane! I REALLY hope that’s his name.

    • Libelula202

      Brois Lane…awesome!

    • Brois Lane…..is the best thing i’ve heard ever right now

    • Walter

      Brois Lane until proven otherwise. I hope he’s a reporter.

  • Jeremy

    The looks on their faces in the last panel are just adorable…

  • Some guy

    That’s not a proper Fireman’s Carry, Alison.

    • Tylikcat

      But is a fireman’s carry really the safest way for the kind of acceleration you’re exposing folks to while flying?

      • That same guy

        Probably, since they handwaved the whole physics issue away earlier by making it some kind of telekinesis.

        • Tylikcat

          Eh, but she’s not a general purpose telekinetic, and I haven’t seeing anything that demonstrates that her TK extends much beyond her body.

          • clauclauclaudia

            Isn’t that what the whole episode with Patrick was about, near the end? Things were hovering all around her.

            It hasn’t historically worked that way for her, but it seems like it certainly can.

    • Tylikcat

      I mean, really, she should put a hand up to cradle his head to make sure he doesn’t get whiplash (or any other kind of neck injury, those are some funky angles there) and I’m not joking.

      …but then I imagine how that would go.

      • Libelula202

        When you mentioned whiplash all I can think of is Quicksilver saying that to Magneto in DOFP.

  • Liz

    Allison: (internally) Don’t touch his junk don’t touch his junk don’t touch his junk…

  • screechfox

    :>

  • GreatWyrmGold

    Forgot most people don’t have an easy way off of rooftops. #JustSuperheroThings

  • Philip Bourque

    She never saved anyone when she did the superhero gig, did she? She was just so focused on beating up bad guys. Or does she simply find him that attractive?

    • ∫Clémens×ds

      His boxers happen to be very flexible and well, the fire didn’t happen at the best time of the night…
      (That is so crass ♥)

  • rpenner

    N-no, nothing awkward about holding a handsome, articulate stranger in a mutual embrace tight enough to support his weight for the whole trip to the ground. Shut up, Rodriguez!

    • scottfree

      That’s probably about the only way to hold someone securely while flying them. I like that it looks a lot more awkward than anything Superman does.

      • Chris Hubbard

        bridal carry is way safer than a hug hold. That or a piggy back ride. The way things are now, she has to hug him tight enough to keep a grip on him around his back. Thats not a secure grip without the potential for pain. Piggy back lets him wrap arms and elgs around her to brace himself easier, bridal carry is a lot less stress on his body to support his weight. I thought way too hard about this.

        • rpenner

          Assuming that Alison’s flight is equivalent to being suspended from one or more points within her own body, the underslung embrace seems more stable (center of mass furthest below center of lift) than the bridal carry or the piggy-back carry.

          Physics for the win!

  • JohnTomato

    Not a bad start to meeting someone new.

  • Scott

    awww

  • Dave Van Domelen

    Heh. When you have a boyfriend already, and he’s telepathic….

    • fairportfan

      Is he actually hr boyfriend, or just someone of the opposite gender who understands and she can talk to?

      • Kid Chaos

        They don’t talk much these days, what with the whole “Patrick is being a gigantic asshole” thing.

        • fairportfan

          Well, they USED to talk.

          • Kid Chaos

            Note the operative words, “used to”.

  • Rascal_Face

    ho ho ho the faces in that last panel.

  • RobotAccomplice

    Let the shipping commence!

  • Lostman

    Smooth.

  • riking

    So. Much. Blushing.

  • JeffH

    Every time I read SFP it makes me smile.

    Every. Single. Time.

    • Dean

      Even during the Feral and Moonshadow storylines?

    • motorfirebox

      That’s cute until I think back to some of those storylines…

      D8

  • This has been the week of adorkable 🙂

  • Cthulhaa

    aw i hope it works out 🙂 **please be a reasonable happy normal cool guy!!!*** xD

    • ∫Clémens×ds

      I don’t know. His face showcases a confidence that seems perplexingly lacking in empathy for her very apparent awkwardness. It can be many things, a few of which concerning: general overconfidence, self-centeredness, contemptuous patronizing…

      • dragon

        He also seems infatuated so he might not notice.

        • ∫Clémens×ds

          In true Alison fashion, I wouldn’t be surprised if he has utterly no interest in her.

      • Meghan

        Aww but it can also be him just being nice by not pointing out that she’s awkward and thereby making her more awkward.

        • ∫Clémens×ds

          Still, either he knows his big sexy, sexy smile is making her visibly uncomfortable and he doesn’t care, or he doesn’t realize and is a big doofus.

          • MrSing

            Please stop smiling sir, it’s bothering the superhumans.

      • Jeremy

        Not to mention, so far she can’t catch a break when it comes to relationships…something seems bound to go wrong.

      • Ralph, the Dire Opossum

        He does seem a little cocky until that last panel. That smile at the end though…

        • ∫Clémens×ds

          That’s how they get ya!

      • Dartangn

        He may well be trying to spare her feelings by not making any note of her apparently spaghetti flying everywhere. He’s smiling because a goregous looking, really famous girl just literally swooped out of the sky and saved his life. The most you could say is that he’s unconciously flirting with his unexpected angel.
        He doesn’t look very confident when he’s asking her to wait, and not leave him on top of a strange building.

      • Tylikcat

        Well, his word salad on the previous page at least is a strong argument against his being smooth. I’m withholding judgement here – I don’t know where to read him as confident, or also awkward but seriously crushed out.

        …I’ll admit part of me is rather suspiciously grumbling “Who the hell is this guy?!” But I am a known cynical bitch.

        • ∫Clémens×ds

          In all seriousness, I think we can expect two potential outcomes of this series of events. Either he’s just going to be Alison’s boyfriend from here on out and it won’t put a hold in Alison’s story every five minutes (wouldn’t that be so great? He’s just her boyfriend, and that’s the end of it. He appears sometimes, but the focus never shifts on how their relationships affects her superhero life. He’s just her boyfriend. And that’s it. That’s be cool.)

          …or we’ll be revealed at some future point that he’s a super and his influence in the story will be much more significant. I don’t like option two, but the Theory of Narrative Causality is a cruel lover.

          • Tylikcat

            Or, say, they could go out for coffee and it could turn out that he’s a serious Mega-Girl fanboy and, depending on how he handles that, Alison might end up deciding that despite the hot exterior, yeah, no.

          • ∫Clémens×ds

            Given how he acted being saved by her, I’d doubt that. Plus the fact that it would be narratively pointless, wasted pages going nowhere. Nah, they’re an item now, I’m sure of it.

            What could realistically happen in real life never makes for a good story.

      • Darkoneko Hellsing

        I think he’s dreamed of been carried by a flying superhero all his life.

  • StClair

    This has got to be a setup. Got to be.

  • Ralph, the Dire Opossum

    I know what this guy’s name is: Luis Lane.

    • lizasweetling

      that’s more probable, but it should be:
      Brois Lane

  • Steele

    Dammit Alison, that’s so obviously a super villain sent to play tricks on you!

  • Zmm

    Haha. seriously. I’ve always wondered how many things are locked.

  • Soo cute <3

  • ophidimancer

    Al is a little rusty on her superhero cliche catchphrases, eh? Awkward girl is awkward.

  • Andromeda

    This story is incredible. I binge read it and now regret being caught up because I have nothing left to take in until the next update. I majorly ship Allison with this adorable new guy and hope you bring him back for more interaction with her even though they only just met. Not to mention I really appreciate finally getting to see our heroine thrown into some firefighter related action. God bless you. This story is incredible.

  • Lauren Tipps

    I can’t even explain the secondhand embarrassment I’m feeling for Al right now. OH, my GOODNESS. Poor girl! At the same time, he’s cute and could end up being a nice guy, so maybe I shouldn’t feel too badly for her. XD

  • AceOfRedSpades

    “thank you for saving me!” “thanks, you too!”

  • Carl Congdon

    Aaaand the derp kicks in. Oh, how I hated the derp back in the day. Poor Alison. Superpowers can do many wonderful things, but there are few strong enough to save you from hormone-induced derp.

  • Alan

    Alison’s face in the last panel is just screaming “don’t drop him, don’t drop him, don’t drop him…”

  • motorfirebox

    Someone call the fire department! There’s another fire… in Alison’s heart! I was gonna say “pants”, but that would be dirty.

    …Whoops.
