Then Boston gets shot and has a sort of "This is your Life Boston Brand" type of moment and says that he doesn't want to die he wants to live so the ring goes back to him.

Tell me, magical heterosexuals ... ! If one person is a man, and one person is a woman ... does this stuff just naturally happen!? Is there a compulsory, overwhelming urge of NATURALNESS that just takes over you, and allows you to have passionate kisses and fall in love under any circumstances, and any short amount of time!? Media confuses me...this seems like such an exciting existence! And here I am, living a slow-paced gay life where I need to silently assess and scope out my potential partner!!

... But seriously, how long have Boston and Dawn been traveling together? A day? Two days?

I don't think they are in love, its residual "omg you're alive" vibes

Of course they are not in love, but I just find it strange that even "omg you're alive" needs to have this compulsory kiss, even if it's because they are uh...overwhelmed with passion and relief or something. Oh my gosh, am I raining on shipper's parades? I don't even mean to do that! I like the idea of this pairing :)

It's hard to judge. It could be a couple of weeks? I think the romance was built pretty naturally, anyway -- SDers were certainly picking up on the shippiness early on.

Didn't they get a cheeseburger only a couple of days ago? I have no idea, it definitely is hard to judge.

Oh, and I'm not saying there was no shippiness. The dude was all sighing about how she smelled like lavender, after all, and she's had a kind affinity with him. But just because there was shippiness there it doesn't mean I don't feel awkward about where they decided to culminate it all into a kiss, I don't really feel like either knows each other at all. Not that ... people aren't allowed to kiss if they don't know each other, of course! It's just that with her tear-streaked face, and his dramatic line about there being more to life than cheeseburgers, the magically placed kiss panel just comes off as bad to me.

I am, admittedly, nearly impossible to please in how romances are executed, especially in this medium, though I always like certain ideas of pairings. So this could be just me being a bad wife to comics.

I guess we're supposed to assume they've gotten close to each other off-panel... or something. DISAPPOINT... maybe she was just relieved to be away from Hank's paternalistic butt for a few days? :)

Longer than that, given the events we've seen in other titles, like Max moving against the JL: Lost Generation and Boomerang's being in jail, breaking out etc..

... I seriously thought the Generation Lost stuff and Boomerang breaking out of jail has all been at least under a couple of weeks. My comic timeline head is not on straight.

You see, lesbosaurus rex, when a (presumably straight) man and a (presumably straight) woman, both wearing outfits so tight that you can tell what religion he is, are traveling around getting into incredibly dangerous situations on a nearly constant basis, they may wind up making out.

Some of that is human nature, i.e. reports of people banging like rabbits during the Blitz. Something about surviving an incredibly dangerous situation seems to make the human animal immediately say, "Oh shit. Quick, make more people in case that happens again!"

Some of that is, well, goofy writing.

Oh. My vagina is dysfunctional and in dangerous situations would be like "What are you doing trying to listen to me?! Listen to your brain! I don't want to make babies!!"

I'm going with goofy writing on this one. Though the Blitz analogy makes me think of that infamously bad Power Girl/Hal Jordan scene.

Perhaps life is ...a bad fanfic?

And I guess, in the end... that the danger in this situation feels inorganic, as did Dove and Boston being separated from Hank in the first place. Okay, the danger in most comic scenarios is usually going to be forced or over the top, but I felt it didn't give either time to sink in and think about their situation. Plus, the whole danger situation also is, empirically, strongly correlated with ideas of nation/country and family and war time in general affects people's psyche in a very unique way and how they react in those situations may be a perfect cocktaily mixture of primal instinct and cultural directives etc

Then again Boston just came back to life recently FOR REAL and Dove recently just lost her sister so.

While the situation is not implausible, the execution left a lot to be desired (re: everything in my case). GOOFY WRITING VERDICT ON THIS END. But both of your proposed theories hold great weight... I feel enlightened.

Maybe it's the ring. Procreation is after all, an aspect of life and growth.

Hey, if pink Kryptonite exists...

I mean, the theme of him really "living" was just introduced in that panel. What better way than to pull in the hot girl beside you for a kiss? It could definitely be the mood of the "ring" I guess...

Well, now I'm replacing Dove with Hawk in this scenario and find myself quite appeased.

I think the relationship is extra-forced so Johns and Tomasi can bring us the extra angst when Boston does die (and he will - he's Deadman, he'll go back to it). I also think either Dove/Dawn or Dove/Don Hall are the White Lantern avatars and Boston just has to realize it.

I think so too. But I also have the feeling that Hank is going to be one of the resurrections that don't stick. That is ... if DC even keeps their word on that. I figured it'd be Hank, Boomerang and Osiris.

Well, I don't know what Dove migh be thinking, but after the whole shoting thing and the ring lecture, I thought it was Boston who decided to do it, with the whole "Live life again the way you wish to."
I actually got surprised they decided to do it, since there was a teaser where Dove and Hawk were kissing.

Three days?

I've had moments when it's just been a bus ride with a complete stranger and the spark was right there.

This is a special case, I'd say.

As far as I understand it, Boston Brand has been unable to get so much as a hug without possessing somebody else for decades now. He's also been too ethical to use anyone else's body for anything besides fighting crime. So quite frankly, if he spent another issue rambling about goddamn cheeseburgers after spending DECADES with ZERO physical intimacy, I was just going to assume that he's secretly a zombie/robot/devoid of his genitals.

I'm actually shocked that Dawn's the one initiating the kiss and grabbing his scalp all "Scruff of the neck" style instead of Brand. Assuming that Batman isn't cockblocking them in that last page, I'm just going to assume the next issue will start with the two of them flat-out exhausted in bed together next to a pile of condom wrappers the size of a novelty Christmas tree.
