You can also check out the main storyline here in Skins fav.me/d5mol00
Rabbit has a bit of a thing for Captain Tyr (the man's job requires him to carry his own handcuffs, need I say more ) and when Rabbit actually likes someone, he can shift from smooth talker to nervous babbler.
Tyr is...Tyr. He's so secretive that nobody know much about his love life. Apart from the fact that he's carrying a torch for Jordan. But he also goes out of his way to flirt with Rabbit. Possibly because he wants to irritate Vinnie (Vinnie sees Rabbit as part of his pack and Tyr as bad for him) or just possibly....because he's interested.

Is it just me, or did Tyr's favorite ice cream flavor change?
I decided that banana flavour just had more subtext in this strip
Oh, I didn't notice a wrist-band.
And enjoying ice cream is A MUST in a relationship.
I love how you write AND draw these two, it's equal parts "Story" and 'Art!!"
And speaking of things not first noticed.
Caliban: By the Way, V-babe, when did you get that tattoo on your lower back?
Vanessa: Who knows, Darling. Blue Devil is a HELL of a Drug.
That blush is so bright, I love this one nice smirk on Tyr's face as well
Ah, thanks I thought it would be fun to see another side of Rabbit and Tyr's smirk leaves the interaction open to interpretation, I hope
you better not ignore rabbit in the 3rd panel is that a smirk on Tyr's face ?
I saw what you did to Tyr's arms I had to take off my glasses to see it
sorry for not posting a comment lately I had an internet problem
Yeah, he's Mr Ice Cube
Ah, so glad you picked that up I wanted his arms to be quite veiny like a bodybuilder's who uses roids - side-effect of the suppressants he uses.
Not a prob - I've been there, believe me - it can be really frustrating. Glad you got it resolved
You've made my day
But unlike alot of folks. yo also use them properly Some people just look - they don't see!
and that face on the 3rd panel. just.. just... dammit Rabbit! I forgive you everything!
I just think of Tyr as a man with balls; even to the tiniest thing. a person with respect to the other will look at them but not in the eye. or is it because Tyr isn't really interested? poor rabbit.
Hm, you raise an interesting point. Tyr is very Alpha (like Vinnie) and I don't think he considers anyone (apart from one or two exceptions) to be on the same level as himself. He's also quite a distant person so he's not terribly responsive in general. It's funny - he's much more responsive towards Rabbit when Vinnie's around. Because he knows how much it gets to Vinnie (who loathes him and can't stand the thought of Rabbit, his substitute kid brother, ever getting involved with Tyr.)
perhaps all of these meds or what ever he takes to repress his natural urges or a Skin fog his brain and ability to respond. still, handsome bastard. you simply manage to do amazing work every single time with your characters' depth.
they really hate each other it seems. I bet the only reason they haven't torn up each other into shreds yet is because they both belong to the coven and have to behave like good, rebuked hounds.
For some strange reason, I see Tyr as shorter than Vinnie. males have that moment when they just get into this "stare contest". usually the one looking down wins.
And that the strips successfully revealed other aspects to him
You are too sharp Tyr is a quite a cold, controlled person anyway but the meds definitely deaden things a bit (I'm drawing on description my cousin told me about her experience on anti-depressants. She said they balanced her emotions but everything felt....flat.)
Spot-on If they weren't bound by the Coven codes and rules, it would be...messy. As it is, they nearly killed each other in a sparring match that turned very nasty, very quickly. They're no long allowed to spar together.
By just an inch or two but you're right, it does bug Tyr
