Mythic Quest’s Queer Season 2 Storyline Gets Gamer Girl High Score

Okay you spoiler seekers, I do understand the need to have CONFIRMED queer activity before signing onto a new show, even one with such a low time commitment like a 30 minute comedy with only 14 episodes to date (though it will be 20 by the end of this season.) So I’m here to tell you that in the beginning of Season Two, after some minor panicking and overthinking on Rachel’s part, Dana kisses her square on the mouth.

Mythic Quest queer gamers Rachel and Dana kiss in a parking garage.

The rise of “we’re here, we’re queer, and we like video games damnit” in pop culture lately has been wonderful.

They worry about it being an issue, either with HR or just with coworkers in general, but truly no one cares, so they move on from the adorable courtship phase of their relationship and directly into being Coworker Girlfriends. Which of course leads to both hilariously uncomfortable and extremely adorable moments. They are soft and cute and nerdy and are determined to develop a mobile game called Grouchy Goat, even though Rachel is a little nervous about the idea of a job trajectory that will take them away from the couch on which they first met.

I look forward to more gay gamer/cute queer content in the upcoming episodes.

  1. Ah I was waiting for some Autostraddle coverage of Mythic Quest!! I stumbled across it a few months ago and developed all the wonderful gay mushy feels (read: season 1 pining) but had no one to share the experience with. Super excited to see where the rest of this season goes. Love and appreciate your review!

  2. Yes, Ashly Burch is bi/pan and has had relationships across the gender spectrum.

    • Do you have any source for that?

      Im asking because I need to know if she’s actually queer or not for an argument I’m trying to make on another site. (About her weirdly forced-neutral reaction to a thoughtlessly homophobic joke that another guest made during a Critical Role special.) But my googling comes up empty. In fact, your comment is the only mention of her being queer that I can find, aside from a twitter comment of hers from years ago that was probably meant as a joke.

  3. “where she played a character that was (relatably) a gay disaster for Laura Bailey”

    I haven’t watched all of the one-shots; which one is this referencing?! I too can relate!

    • Yeah! I would like to know too!

      The only thing I know is that she played Keg on the Mighty Nein campaign and had a fling with Marisha’s character, Beau. (and also the catchphrase “Keg is aroused”, which she used everytime Beau did something cool)

    • It was called The Return of Liam! It was actually the first thing I ever watched related to D&D/CR. My friend said it would be a good intro for what even the game of Dungeons & Dragons even looked like, since I was that uneducated about it. And I adored them all so much and how much fun they were having, it’s what convinced me to watch Vox Machina from the beginning! (Well, that and the Keyfish scene.)

      I’m going to put a youtube link here but I’m not 100% sure it will work: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgHm3Ct0Zh0&ab_channel=Geek%26Sundry

      If that didn’t work, it’s on the Geek & Sundry YouTube channel.

  4. Sad so many shows make light of a mental illness like homosexuality. The shows themselves could be good and for the whole family. But not when you have to push a disgusting agenda like that.
