It's quite possible. I did mention towards the outset of this arc that Hilary had a "recession-proof fall-back career".

However, I'm not sure that this would really fit with her self image any more. She seems to have a far higher level of self-esteem now (given her snobby comments). Because of that, I think that going back to making porn would be a great humiliation for her, the equivalent of going back to square one, that she would only consider if all other things failed.

No, I just think that she's goofing off, partying and networking to try and find a better job whilst Pip covers her shifts and purjours himself with their employers.

That's pretty much what I'm thinking, but wasn't going to the job centre to find a job a bottom-of-the-barrel last resort?

There is one other flaw in that logic: While we all know Hilary thinks she's "too good" to work a real job, is it really easier to humor Pip (watching sci-fi movies all night & going to a comic store, things someone like her would normally spurn) than just do her job?

Of course I've never had to work retail so...

P.S. Who else thinks Kat will be the one to catch her in the act? Wonder if Pip will still be in denial after seeing some "professional quality" photographic evidence Wink

I could just be that she finds she likes them, I doubt that someone who is as image conscious as her would ever go near comic stores and scifi movies for fear of ruining her reputation if nothing else

This is a "for what it's worth" thought.

Hillary has always been rather shallow and so if she truly is in love with Pip, she'll turn into a rather shallow nerd. I mean, c'mon! Hillary going to a comic book store? Staying up all night watching SF movies?

I think Pip had turned Hillary on to a complete different kind of life, BUT a walk through the depths of her soul will still (and forever) barely get your heels wet.

And, on a different subject, my shame knows no end ... I want to see Hillary in that top too.

Years of intense feminist training at an institution of higher learning all undone by one comic strip. What hath Mr. Jackson wrought?

Edit: Alternate prediction - the shocking twist is that Hilary genuinely likes Pip and enjoys being with him, without any hidden motives. Her daylong absences will turn out to be perfectly innocent.

It's so implausible, we'd never see it coming.

The prophet has spoken!

Yeah he has, but it was me, in the previous thread :p

Prophets just say what they're told to say... it's the gods who do the predicting, isn't it? Wink
