Title: WCDT Strips 3786 - 3790 (16th to 20th July 2018)
Post by: BenRG on 15 Jul 2018, 11:30
Okay, as we seem to definitely be doing a longer-than-usual arc at The Secret Bakery, I thought that an appropriate poll was called for. Which of the store's products do you want to buy. All of the choices have appeared in the strip, although some are rather obscure.

I'd buy the bagels but not just because I've just discovered them and love them. Because Brun doesn't like them, I am less likely to have to handle her strangely calm annoyance that she directs towards anyone who obtains bread products that she wants for herself!

As I've already said, I'm expecting a continuation of the funny, occasionally sad and always ultra-awkward Clinton-Elliot-Brun interaction for this week. I'm not expecting it to actually go anywhere, only to some equivalent of Faye's 'nah, couldn't be' from all three of them.

I'm hoping Marten actually gets some screen time.

Or Coffee of Doom.

Or how Hanners is doing...

mmmmm...croissants. I used to eat those every day.

Though I gotta say a mix is tempting. There's something appealing about getting several of you don't know what and finding out if you like it or it's a mistake.

So, something tells me that the most common phrase Clinton is going to be uttering around Elliot is: "Calm down Elliot and don't hold on so tight!"

Meanwhile, I think that Brun is going to be remembering today as one of the stranger ones for various reasons. She's had new experiences, some positive and some negative. I'm pretty sure that she hasn't classified being hugged by Elliot yet; it isn't as 'uncanny valley' as the cow mascot but it was still unexpectedly overwhelming.

So between the literal dark cloud over Clinton and Brun on Friday, and the shining light of an Elliot-hug in the first panel today, I see Jeph's using more "illustrative atmospherics" in the comic. 


Not sure how I feel about that yet - when it's obvious, there'a a point.  How else is Elliot going to "tune in" to what was going on while he was in the kitchen?  It tells us he's actually a keen observer of people, not unusual for a successful bouncer. 

But when it's not so obvious, it seems a bit manipulative.  I always felt the story itself was enough to carry the emotion. 



Also, the Padma special.  I'm at a point in life where I'm starting to savor my regrets.

I was just wondering what Brun's and Clinton's kids would look like.
imagine someone with Brun's skin tone, and the Augustus red hair.

Post by: BenRG on 16 Jul 2018, 23:33
Poor Brun! I think, whether or not she's really tired, I think that she's reached her emotional immersion maximum saturation point. Simply put, she can't confront more social interaction with such a strong emotional content (hers and others), so she's withdrawing to recharge.

Meanwhile, in panel 3, both Clinton and Elliot are thinking the same thing: "She's so cute and pretty! It's such a shame that she's not interested in me like that!"

FWIW, I'm with Renee, though: The blender-thing in the back being on fire again is probably something that should be a higher priority for Elliot than hanging out with his crushes!

I was just wondering what Brun's and Clinton's kids would look like.
imagine someone with Brun's skin tone, and the Augustus red hair.

Red hair is a recessive trait, so any children of hers fathered by Clinton would be more likely to have dark hair like Brun's but, if she has Germanic ancestry as her name suggests, they may have blue eyes.

I actually knew someone who had dark skin (darker than Brun, even) and bright red hair. She was quite attractive, and the color contrast was striking. And yes, the red hair was natural.

Nah, she’s young enough that she dated Angus without him commenting on her age. I think they’re foster sisters or were in the same group home.

An age gap doesn't preclude a romantic relationship.  But, you are right that those are two other viable possibilities.  She could have also been a caregiver for Brun's mother when she was dying from cancer.  And I've seen a relationship with a 22 year age difference develop from not too different circumstances, so it's not impossible she became involved with Brunsire through that route.

I'm speculating on possibilities but there's nothing presented in-strip up to this point that makes one any more likely than another.

We know nothing at all about how Brun and Renee met. There are lots of possibilities that can fit the data (since there isn’t any), but the simplest explanation is that they are simply friends who met somewhere along the way.

If Bubbles took offense at being compared to a Ferrari I'd understand her point of view.

Both good choices, I think. Hanners is currently unavailable, so probably Momo.

With her ginger hair, she should have gone for the green one in frame 1.  Ordinarily taht would risk upstanding the bride, but in that case there were two grooms.

Drunk sledding, Hanners and the red hot paperclip, the reveal of the monks fought off with the battle spatula were real, and SCORN might be my contenders.

Really, this is going to be a challenge for them. Bubbles has, of course, never had any reason to want to learn how to dress 'hot, human style' ever before. From what I've seen, Faye's never been in the right place, emotionally or with her self image, to want to. So, the two of them are definitely in for a bit of an exploration of their presentation and personal aesthetics over the next few strips.

Meanwhile, I'm thinking that, in panel 4, Faye probably is having issues focussing on the matter at hand. I think that she's definitely thinking of Bubbles in lingerie, Bubbles in risque business casual and Bubbles in revealing swimwear. Basically, everything except the practicalities of what is ahead :-D

Oh, and Bubbles liking butch!Faye confirmed.

Who's the best person in the cast to advise her about picking flattering clothes? Momo? Hannelore?

Momo and Hannelore are both much slimmer and their ideas of what is attractive might not translate well over to Bubbles' much heavier body type. I'm thinking  that Bubbles has asked the right person, assuming that Faye can get past her current inner fashion parade fantasy.

Slinky black dress. Or perhaps a slinky dress in the same shade of maroon that she normally wears - that’s a good color on her.

Perhaps this needs to turn into a collective effort. Faye, Claire and Dora team up to advise Bubbles on fashion. And if Veronica got involved too, the results could be... interesting.

For me, the bodysuit Bubbles wears isn't working. It would be great if she could take it off. It would be amazing to see Bubs in a dress, I don't think we have yet. Yes, a black dress. Bubbles all dolled up, how lovely.

I personally like Bubbles with her hair down. It looks good. Everyone commented how beautiful she looks with it down.

Definitely not overalls...but Bubbles' casual/athletic style is working for her. I would say deep six the bodysuit and she's good to go.

I'm going to disagree--clothes that match her hair/skin are a no go for me (hence why I want the bodysuit gone). Clothes that complement it--yes!

I think Faye had one appropriate response.

This might be a good RELATE thread!

I think there's more than one answer depending on who makes the offer. If it's somebody like Marigold, the first order of business is to build up their self esteem. The other end of the scale would be somebody like Veronica. If she offers her lover the chance to ask for appearance changes, then his appropriate response is gracious acceptance.

Well, yeah, that amount of denim next to the skin can really get things sweaty. And those rivets up top can leave burn marks on the skin, too, if left out in the sun too long.

Ah, hot rivets. Those will leave a mark.

Fun fact: Levi’s jeans originally had a crotch rivet. However, a few too many cowboys got, ahem, branded by hot rivets while sitting around campfires, so Levi Strauss was persuaded to remove that feature.

Overalls aren’t butch...

Faye isn’t really butch. I don’t know why people keep saying she is. I had short hair for awhile but I still wasn’t butch.

Overalls and dungarees are less butch at the moment partially because they're trendy, as they were in the 90s. In the preceding and intervening years, they were definitely a hallmark of a tomboyish girl.

Faye has many more of those hallmarks too. She doesn't present as particularly traditionally feminine at all, is in quite a masculine line of work, has a very harsh sense of humour and tone which is, lest we forget, generally seen as powerful in men but off-putting in women...

For the record: No shade is being thrown here, I have two partners and I would say that masculinity-wise Faye sits somewhere between the two of them. Gender is, of course, a construct; I'm talking about my own, admittedly anecdotal, observations about the public's viewpoints and interpretations at large.

https://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3154
:lol:

So it's safe to say Faye has earned some "butch" cred.

Their expert evaluation of Bubbles cracks me up:
https://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3484


But yeah, if you like ladies, then an attractive lady in overalls is very damn appealing. Hopefully she's washing them once in a while.

Faye has been offered the chance to drive fancy car//dress up a pretty lady, but is apprehensive because she does not confidence in her driving skills//fashion. Double anxiousness because if you know anything about high end manual transmissions and/or body image insecurities, you know that pushing it too hard or too fast can cause lasting damage to the engine///heart.

Okay, Bubbles is adorable in a bunch of outfits.  Beautiful work to see.

But there's no way a woman her size could find that many outfits at one thrift store.  She's about six standard deviations off the norm, and a typical thrift store only has about two thousand outfits at any given time.  I have learned to ignore the clothing in thrifts; the odds of finding anything AT ALL in my size are too poor to make it worthwhile.

So I have to interpret this as the pair of them going around and hitting something on the order of fifty thrift stores, and we only got the few scenes where they found something and Bubbles tried it on.

Bubbles in the yellow dress is adorable!

I'm somewhat biased towards that kind of dress, especially on tall women. But that's just me I guess.


Didn't The Man ask some fashion advice for this on Twitter so me time ago? it's nice to see the outcome though.


My favourite thing I used to say cheekily was that in short.shorts a 6" frame was legally naked.

 I said this about my self btw. I would blush way too much if I ever even thought that far about another.person.

There is something distinctly full of.awe.struck about a tall person in  short shorts.

I say person because of John Barrowman wore short shorts I and half the world would faint.

To me, all of Bubbles's outfit options have different upsides.
Speaking of the option in panel 5, I wonder how Bubbles really regards the way her body drives Faye wild? Flattered, embarrassed or a combination of both?

P.S.:
I suddenly realised yesterday that Bubbles in-service designation (using the Star Wars Stormtrooper template) could be 'BU-8135'. Look at it through 1337 filters and you'll see what I mean!

Go, Bubbles! Keep looking and get some cute outfits. That said, she should try more red colors and veer away from yellow. She has a red tone to her skin. Generally, if you have pink or red tones in your complexion (versus olive), yellow can be difficult to work with (though there are always exceptions to the rule). She looks fab in white as women with dark skin often do.

I love thrift stores! That's where I buy 80% of my jeans. We have a really upscale one that sells mostly designer clothing I like to visit sometimes, but you can't bean $6 Goodwill jeans. :)

@ reallynotboxbot it's a relationship metaphor, not a robot metaphor.

Faye has been offered the chance to drive fancy car//dress up a pretty lady, but is apprehensive because she does not confidence in her driving skills//fashion. Double anxiousness because if you know anything about high end manual transmissions and/or body image insecurities, you know that pushing it too hard or too fast can cause lasting damage to the engine///heart.

<Mr. Explains-the-Joke>
...and for your edification, I believe the "stick" reallynotboxbot was referring to is a penis. As in, Faye is now in a girl-girl relationship and no longer "drives stick."

Loving the idea of Bubbles dressing up. Whatever outfits she goes for should continue to show off her amazing figure, and she should save the hair-down look for special occasions.

Question: Does she wear shoes? Does she need to?

I've been thinking what would suit Bubs. Since she usually wears here tight bodysuit, I'd go for something looser, but not overly baggy. A dress or a skirt combination might be nice, but it's not that good in that work of line.


What I'd kinda like to see is Bubs in full Victorian attire at the Horrible Revelation.

These last two pages are really cute. It's nice to see Bubbles in different clothing, I think she looks good in all the outfits.

I think a tank top and knee length shorts would be a good standard outfit for Bubbles, but it might be too close to how Faye used to dress.

I didn't realize until I saw this how much I NEEEEEEDED to see Bubbles in a cute dress.

I think the yellow actually works great on her skin color, but what do I know.


It is clear that Bubbles has not one shred of fashion sense. I mean, there are humans that claim the same, but she really, truly, never gave it any thought until removing her armor. There have been some absolutely gawdawful getups.

"Are shorts and a cardigan an acceptable combination?" To be honest, no. No they are not. Faye's answer was... nicely diplomatic.
https://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3477

Nope, not even with a tie:
https://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3480

Mom jeans with bodysuit. Not... bad?
https://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3501

Shorts with bodysuit. Bad.
https://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3592

"Robots in activewear" is a pretty good direction -- practical, bright synthetics work well with nonhuman pigmentation, shouldn't trap too much heat... wouldn't want any untoward venting.
https://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3566
https://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3548

Since Faye showed up and Bubbles started "growing" and styling her hair, it's always looked pretty good. And she did a nice job with May's hair.


As far as Bubbles' feet, I think she has some sort of dark red "tread" stuff that snaps on at the toe and heel when she's out and about. Most AIs seem to just wear shoes.

Apologies if this has been mentioned before, but why would an AI have a navel?

It's probably more of a navel-like dent without a lot of detail, and at the risk of drastically overthinking this, it's probably there because AI myomer muscles (at least in high-end chassis like Bubbles') seem to closely mimic human muscles. Bubbles has biceps, triceps, pecs, etc. so it would make sense that her abdomen follows the same muscle pattern as human abdomens, where the muscles sort of flow around the navel. It's also sort of a "landmark" and an AI with a navel would look a little more human-ish while wearing human clothes.

Similarly, AI feet don't need separated toes or a lot of details that would drag them into the uncanny valley, but they're close enough in general shape and function that most of them wear human shoes.

When you think about it, designing androids would be full of aesthetic and practical decisions and tradeoffs like this. You have to stay far enough away to avoid the uncanny valley, but at the same time you need to keep fairly close to a lot of human features we mostly never think about to enable good function and to give needed visual landmarks.

It varies, of course -- May's cheap-ass government chassis is a lot more abstract, and doesn't have a navel:
https://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3175


Then again, this is still a cartoon. The Benevolent Creator draws wonderfully expressive hands, but no one, human or AI, seems to have fingernails. It would probably take twice as long to draw each frame...

Question: Does she wear shoes? Does she need to?

I don't think that she needs to, no. Those 'socks' probably have heavy-duty and high-traction treads as soles. I think that, like a lot of Synthetics, Bubbles likes to wear shoes to stick out less in a crowd.

These aren't terrible outfits, but none seem to be all that practical for work.

Interesting, I actually interpreted these last strips about finding casual clothing for outside of work.

Based on the clothing that she's trying on they do not appear to be looking at work-related clothing.

I'm glad to see that my assessment about what Bubbles preferred for everyday wear was the same as Jeph's! That said, I've got the feeling that the tank-top and shorts are being kept in reserve for 'special occasions'!

Dora and Faye have been so awkward with each other for so long after Faye being fired and the aftermath. It's good to see them bantering and at ease with each other again.

ALL WEAPONS proficiency would be the prestige class Weapons Master* after about I think 5 levels you can use all weapons with proficiency and just a bit latter on, use any feat with any weapon, including improvised weapons.

I have had someone power attack/sunder with a potato. It wasn't pretty. Nether the target nor the potato survived the encounter.

Actually, if you take a martial weapon proficiency as a feat it applies only to a single type of martial weapon, the same as exotic weapons. Only the simple weapon proficiency feat grants proficiency in the entire class.

I had to look this up myself to be sure. I figure it doesn't come up much since most characters who aren't proficient in martial weapons have other abilities that make being able to swing a sword less important.

If the campaign is using the weapon group feats variant rule (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/variant/buildingCharacters/weaponGroupFeats.htm) from Unearthed Arcana, and Flaws, and content from the Forgotten Realms campaign setting, you could have proficiency with all weapons at level 1 by taking Militia (http://www.realmshelps.net/charbuild/feat/Militia), Weapon Group (Exotic Weapons), and Weapon Group (Exotic Double Weapons) as your three level 1 feats.

Which is less impressive than one might think. At first level you only own two or three weapons, and at higher levels you will use whichever weapon has the best magical upgrades.

I used to play a 'Fantasy Hero' campaign (Hero Gaming System - they used it for several genres).  The combat rules feature a -5 penalty for non-proficient weapons.  And also allows you to buy bonuses ("levels") with special effects, limited applicability restrictions, etc. 

There was a character who had a +10 bonus, only for purposes of negating penalties.  Between non-proficiency penalties, range penalties, and penalties on throwing unbalanced and non-aerodynamic objects, it was almost fully applicable almost all the time, if she chose to act in ways that used it. It gave her an astonishingly free and flexible style of play.  She was quite dangerous, and could almost always do something highly effective no matter what the circumstances.  Picking up and throwing a random rock was a terrifying move when she did it.

In context it was supposed to be the manifestation or result of some enchantment or prophecy relating to a 'perfect warrior' that had been focused on her at a shrine to the champions of her nation, and went with a Holy Mission to free any of her people who came under the yoke of slavery.  She was actually quite dangerous, in that it was almost impossible to meaningfully 'disarm' her.

Yeah, a lot like that.  Now that I think about it, she did play a lot like a Hong Kong movie.

"Insert dual-wielding joke here"

Speaking about Faye and Bubbles, it's more like... (wait for it...) dual-welding! <taa DAM tssss>

An intricate dance of interleaved flame art requiring a high degree of coordination and synchrony between the partners. Not unlike 4 hand piano. I expect there are rare items that cannot be crafted in any other way.

TIG in Faye’s left hand, MIG in the right, Bubbles has Oxy-Acetylene which gives her +1 fire damage, and Arc Welder in her off hand (+2 Lightning damage).

Now, I really would like to see a badass drawing of Faye wielding two welding implements. Or Bubbles. Or both of them...

While interesting, I'd rather approach them on bended knee as I would any other master smith to get them to forge me a the perfect  custom western style sabre. Between the two of them, the metalworking magic would be amazing.

Wait, all weapons? Not just simple and martial weapons? What class is Bubbles that she gets that many proficiencies?

There was a prestige class in the 3.5 expanded psionics book that was worded that way, the Illithid Slayer. I was never quite sure if it actually meant all weapons or just simple and martial weapons.

Fighter would get her simple and martial, and I assume she's high enough level to get exotic weapon proficiency as a feat.

Honestly, I can't see Bubbles as anything but a Paladin.

Which oath? (Or am I thinking of fighters?)
