WCDT 2902-2906 (23-27 February 2015)
« on: 22 Feb 2015, 10:35 »

I expect all things to remain free of drama, this week.

Not. Jeph gave us the week off. It was so sweet, I lost teeth (Don't worry. I found them. Along with two left socks and my virginity). I suspect something's going to happen.

Honestly, given that we followed M&C to work, I expect some Tai but I can't imagine what she'll be up to.

I want to vote Sven, because he's really the best candidate--what with the state of the economy and all. But I'm beginning to feel like that is an abandoned plot. Left alone, on the streets with nothing. A poor, defenseless plot. In this weather.

I'd like to get back to Dora, pretty please.  I know Jeph is setting up Marten and Claire to get hit by a Taidal wave when they enter the library, but I hope we can get some back-and-forth strips between that and Dora's issues at Coffee of Doom.

Meanwhile, I'm currently working on a somewhat-lengthy essay on Claire and Marten's future that began as speculation for the WCDT but is swiftly approaching 2000 words and will probably get posted as a separate discussion page.  I'd like to post it once I finish, sometime later today, if that doesn't steal your thunder.

I should think that Faye is the obvious candidate for interesting storytelling. She now out of her comfort zone (no more COD), and under the gun in financial terms. She'll need to find a way to bring in income, and stay sober while doing it. She's unlikely to want to go to work at the Library for Dora's SO, so she needs to decide if she wants another barista gig or if she wants to try something else. I'd predict she does not want to have anything to do with COD or Dora in the near term, so sculpting in the COD space isn't an option. She's also not going to want to go crawling back to Angus. Brand new day for Faye, and perhaps time to meet some new faces.

Warning - while you were typing significant insights into the meaning of life were posted. You'll be embarrassed when your drivel follows it. Just sayin'.

If I were Faye, I might think about putting a business proposition to Hanners. Hanners wants a place where she doesn't have to share cleaning facilities with Juicy and her ilk. Why not use some of the Ellicott-Chatham billions to buy out their apartment building, and then hire Faye to manage it? As owner, Hanners could get laundry installed in her own unit, but wouldn't need to deal with day-to-day maintenance issues (Faye handles those.) Faye could stay in the storylines organically, and would have a gig where she could get away with being bitchy to anybody she doesn't like. She could also probably even find space in the building to start sculpting. Win-win.

I've never played Portal. So, it's funny that I spent all of Pacific Rim waiting for Gypsy Danger's voice interface to say something really mean.

I would think that Tai is going to have her say about the Marten and Claire relationship developments, and I hope that Jeph checks in with Dora or Faye as well this week. No idea how it will turn out though, it's a bit too soon to call for me.

That was the first place my mind went, too.

What I'd like to see this week and maybe into next (which, of course, means it'd never happen) is alternating between the Faye and Dora storylines. Dora's got three huge unresolved issues: Sven, Faye, and her own insecurity. Faye has the residual stuff from her past with her dad, as well as the alcoholism. I'd neither expect, nor want, to see everything tied up neatly in two weeks, but it'd be nice to see the ball start rolling at least. Alternating between the two could end up being a kind of point/counterpoint between the two of them (without their even having to appear together in-comic), and could also start tying up a few of the multitude of loose ends.

I'm glad I'm not alone on that one. I do wonder how many people know what I said ;Þ

I'm hoping for rolling balls, as well. Frankly, it's been so long since some of these were placed on the top of the hill, I think they may have grown moss.

I'm not sure where that metaphor is going.

I think we need some recontext to make the plots feel natural, at this point.

Regarding Tai & Dora, I would not be surprised if Tai told Marten that Dora is clamming up and not talking about things. I really feel that we're going to see something about them and soon.

Don't know that Dora would clam up about this.  After her interaction with Pen-pen, she clearly needs to talk it out. 

Which takes us back to Dora-Tai this week anyway!

Where we left on Friday could literally let Jeph go anywhere on Monday. Anything I'd say would be nothing  but a guess but I think I've basically narrowed it down to three options:
  • At the Library, Tai teases Claire and Marten about their 'had sex last night' glow; Emily gets involved in a way that sets off an avalanche of some kind;
  • Back at the apartment, Faye wants to do some thinking; Pintsize makes that hard - harder still because he's right, the little glitch!
  • Dora finally gets tired of being asked where Faye is by employees and customers and blows a fuse in the biggest and most dramatic way imaginable.
There are other options, but these are the ones I want to see the most.

I suspected that tomorrow's strip is going to show where Martin and Claire are going. It's either CoD or the Library. Either way, other characters are going to get face time this week; it can't be just Martin and Claire all the time.

Unless Claire is actually a beach ball and Martin is just stranded on a deserted island, hallucinating it all...

Tai, Jimbo and Will start a writing group? Claire and Emily kick off a digital humanities project as part of their practicum? Marigold throws Angus a goodbye party? Momo decorates her new bedroom and invites Sven over? Claire discovers she can rasp out heavy metal vocals? Marten asks Veronica to ask Jim to hire Faye at the Secret Bakery? Pint-size speaks up at a robot support group about how he no longer feels safe sharing space with Faye? Claire and Tai take a stand against not-Smith's anti-trans policies? Faye reaches out to Sven? Deathmøle plays a fundraiser for Faye's art?

Five strips of Marten/Claire squishy schmoopy nibbly nurblies?

Since Momo seems to have chose a chassis which approximates a tween girl, the idea of her getting sexually involved with Sven or anyone else is now creepy as all hell.

If there's going to be any synthetic member of the cast who eventually gets it on with a human, it's going to be May.

May's chassis is of scale with Momo's.

If were going by morphology alone, would it not be the same? Except blue?

They are around the same height, but May is built like a woman (or at least someone who has started puberty).  You can see here, which is the only comic the two have appeared together in.  May is petite, but really her body doesn't look that different from many of the more willowy women in the strip (Dora, Hanners, etc).  Momo looks like a 10-12 year old.

And Momo's already been mistaken for Marten's daughter or younger sister (this was at the Secret Bakery around the time of the Padma arc), which suggests that she looks young.

Wasn't Momo's chassis just supposed to be anime like? Anime has a tendency to make all their girls look like 12 year-olds in general.

Where as May's chassis is obviously a robot. I doubt anyone has cause to assume the blue girl with visble expansion joints and plastic hair is anything but a robot. But May's chassis is also clearly based on her virtual companion avatar, and that was anime modeled, like Momo. I rather suspect a "lifelike" May would still resemble a child more than an adult, given the anime roots.

"Old enough to bleed, old enough to breed," is not cool. Just because May appears a little older than Momo, it doesn't follow that A) she is. She might be younger. It would explain a lot. B) that she appears age of consent older. Given all the other factors in their character designs, I'm going to assume they are more alike than different until word of god says otherwise.

Pretty sure Jeph would call all of you out on creepiness at this point.

I've always gotten the impression that Momo would look more plastic in real life, as in she'd look like she was just coming out of the Uncanny Valley into that area where people weren't going to be freaked out. Though that might be because of Hanners squeaking her after Momo got out of the shower that time.

Someone used the phrase "old enough to breed." That's on a level only just slightly less creepy than babies in a barrel jokes. And if you've never heard that joke - you don't need to.

Jeph is over protective of his characters. His house. He's allowed.

I'm a writer. If I'm not edging on creepy territory, I'm doing it wrong. (Jeph has done the same, whether he admits it or not. Angus and Dale are actually super creepy in real life, for anyone older than 8. Their creepy got them the girl. ]: )

Finally, I'm arguing that sexualizing May is a creepy as sexualizing Momo. If anyone wants to interpret that as creepy, that's their problem.

I don't have a citation handy but Jeph has explicitly squashed questions about Momo's body.
