Ok, here is my extensive theory: (ooo, colons.  I feel fancy!)
Faye is eventually going to go, throw herself a pity party, get increadably drunk, and bang Sven.  She wakes up in the morning, realizes what she has done.  She also realizes what Marty said about her being an alcoholic is completely right, and becomes more angry at herself.  Faye storms off, with a confused Sven chasing after her.  Big fight in the street, and Angus sees.  He starts chewing out Sven, over exagerating what happened, of course.  At this time, Faye sneaks off, and goes back down to the south.  No one knows this of course, so when Sven tells Dora what happened, Dora, Marty and everyone else up north thinks Faye killed herself.  Because of this, Dora breaks up with Marty.

And I'm not quite sure what would happen after that.  But something would.

Or Faye could always hook up with Jim, and have a really weird threesome with him and Tai

Soapy, maybe in a very distant paralell reality.  But can't deny there's some chemistry in that hug.

Never really commented on here about the actual comic (usually just music) but here goes:

Faye needs to do something.  Anything.  Her character is starting to become quite boring.  No one really minds that Marten is with Dora and not her because she's done nothing but mope, drink and throw out sarcastic lines for too long.  I'm assuming (hoping) Jeph knows this.  Just because someone isn't ready for a relationship/sex doesn't mean they won't try.  Trying either might actually get her a little further towards getting out of her funk.  It's pretty clear that just sitting around waiting isn't doing much for her.  Comic 1000 sounds like a good time for this to go down.

If we follow standard soap/sitcom procedure she will have sex with Sven and everything will be great for ... at most one or two strips.  Then, immediately, we'll run into a new conflict which'll throw everything off and Jeph can go back to writing filler comics while we wait another 100 comics for a small bit of further resolution.  The conflict could be Faye freaking out, realizing she really likes Marten, running down south (requiring someone to come get her), realizing that Sven really is just a womanizer when you get down to it, whatever. 

What, me jaded?

Sven and Faye hooking up has so much potential to move the plot forward.

That pretty much automatically means it won't happen.

I think that Sven and Faye will NOT GET TOGETHER IN THE NEXT 30 COMICS.
Not to say that they WILL NOT get together - they may.

But I think that the underlying tension that was created in #987 will grow and expand.

I'm looking forward to those two getting into some awkward position where Sven is pantless, Faye is on his lap, and Marty walks in on them. Then Sven says something smarmosaurically, Faye becomes embarassed and bolts out of the room, running down the street. Sven chases after her without pants and gets hit by a car. Then Marty and Faye ride with him in the ambulance and talk things out.

Of course, a few comics later, they go to visit him in the hospital. Over the period of four or five comics, most of the cast comes by to visit Sven. At the end of the day, Faye and Marty end up spending the night in Sven's hospital room.

Dora might come in sometime during the night and see Marty and Faye asleep, with Faye resting her head on Marty's shoulder. Then she goes through a self-doubting process about her and Marty dating.

That's as far as I got.

And I think everyone needs to stop explaining what they want/think the plot will be. What everyone is getting to is that there IS NO PLOT. There hasn't been for a long time. And the last thing a writer needs are fans trying to tell you what to do - because the writer always has a vision.

Maybe the plot is so incredibly clever that it's purpose is to seem like there's no plot. A plot-less plot?

LOL! Classy :P hahah! That WOULD be a shock! Though I'd change it to something like this

Faye: "Sven, I like you"
Sven: "well... thats cool I guess. But I have a ...... confession to make"
*in walks angus*

Faye, being the biological avatar of a massively powerful AI (see my original post, "I have realized the truth about QC"), was originally programmed to be incapable of forming a relationship with anyone so that she would not become distracted from her mission, and to encourage Marten to form a relationship with Dora. However, she discovered that alcohol inhibits communication with her "greater self", and so has been using it to gain some time to think without being monitored.

Even if she gets free from her hardwired abandonment issues, Sven is the least likely person for her to hook up with. Marten is the only one she wants, and her only choice if she wants to thwart the AI's plan.

In a weird way, years from now, I want to see Faye with Marten, it's almost the bittersweet heart of the story.  However, I think he and Dora are great together right now. 

But in the interim, I like Angus a lot better than Sven.

You guys make QC seem like one big soap fest  :lol:. I honestly hope that Jeph doesn't read this thread and somehow subconsciously decide to adopt some of the more salacious theories, hahaha.

And what about the possibility that Sven ISN'T interested in having a relationship with Faye? (physical relations don't count). Perhaps I'm reading it wrong, but he's playing the role of caring friend-boy very well thus far.

I agree the plots stagnant things need to happen. One comic witty jokes get old after awhile, I think sven in faye whould make a good cuple because they complmente eachs others faults.
  • Faye give shit and sven can always turn it around
    She introverted he extroverted
    sven gives lovin faye really needs it (bad)

If faye relationship with marten is any precedent than she tried hard not to like him too and it didn't work out, I do hope jeph reads this and decide to advance the plot.
(plus i think dora and marten are such a better couple than fye and him would be) :-D

Faye and Sven, OMG kissing... Get real, folks!

I like Sven, I really do, but he and Faye are not going to become a couple. Not because of Faye and her issues, but because I think she is the first female friend Sven has ever had. In fact, I get the idea she's becoming the first real friend Sven has ever had, period. So I see Sven himself being an obstacle to this, at least in the near future.

It seems much more likely that Faye will take a chance on Angus, who is, if nothing else, far less threatening. It will last about as long as Steve and Ellen did, but it'll be a start.

However, as far as likelihood goes, I think Faye's more likely to start dating the allosaurus or DeathBot 9000 as she is to date either of these two. And that's a good thing, because Faye does not need to add a complication to her emotional life right now. I think Martin and Dora being a couple are actually good for Faye because they a) have gotten her off her butt and into therapy and b) have changed Martin from a possible complication into a pillar of support, which is what Faye really needs. I think Sven is becoming one of those pillars, too.

As for Faye and Steve, do you people *want* Faye to kill someone? Steve seems a nice guy, but he's almost as shallow as Sven pretends to be. On the other hand, Penelope and Sven are a possibility, if Penelope ever quits CoD or Dora decides Sven has finally grown up. Penny is what Sven really needs and vice versa. He brain will keep him in line, and he will convince her she's attractive physically as well as intellectually.

So Faye will be the Nun of QC, at least until she straightens herself out. I hope so, anyway; to do anything else would be horribly selfish and unfair of her. I think Faye has neither of these qualities in any great abundance, so it may well be strip 10,000 before Faye starts dating. Let's hope Mr. Jacques sticks with us for that long.

MuteKi, you obviously haven't attended Catholic parochial school (or, like me, know some poor souls who did), or you'd know just how nun-like (well, some nuns, anyway) Faye truly is. And, now that I think of it, both  Faye and nuns turn violent about similar subjects—gropin', kissin', and all things sexual innuendo. Faye just hasn't given anyone a smack-down for cussin' yet. And, yes, nuns have nun-fu http://nunpod.vodpod.com/video/10102-ninja-nuns, and nun-chucks. The latter are usually referred to as rulers.

Hmm, maybe Faye *will* become a nun. An indie girl nun. Hmmmm. Okay, I can't quite work that picture out, but what I can disturbs me somewhat.

I guess it's possible, but I don't see it happening for a while.

I think the reason Faye likes Sven so much is that Sven doesn't judge her.  So whenever she's feeling bad about herself but doesn't want to be alone, she can take a break from her (As she seems to see them) paragon friends and go to Sven.  She knows she doesn't have to censor herself with him because she knows she can't hurt him the way she can hurt Martin or Dora.

Actually I did, to a pair of less violent nuns; I would have assumed that such would be the growing norm these days.

Perhaps only a very, ah, fortunate few get to experience the wrath of nuns. You're probably right: nowadays no one even seems to get the sort of physical punishment I experienced in my school days from 'ordinary' teachers. Too many lawsuits. Heck, if she could, after I'd gotten rulered or paddled, my mom would have sued me for embarrassing her.

I guess this rules out a career in education for Faye, too. Maybe she ought to go apprentice under Martin's mom.

Now I highly doubt that Faye will  be "making teh kisses" with anyone for a long long time if ever.  Not because of the suicide induced trauma, but rather because that is the kind of person Faye is.  Although, I do believe that Sven might possibly be the one to break through the shell Faye has built up.  What of Angus you say?  well unless Sven screws up horribly and he catches the rebound, he will likely fade into the background.  "but Orangy, Jeph wouldn't do that!" REALLY? remember Sara?  of course you don't.

I'll venture out of lurkerdom to offer you some support, 714 :)

I'm a diehard romantic, so I love Faye and Sven together.  I never really warmed up to Angus; he's just too weird.  I started reading a while ago and read all the archives.  For a while I was hoping Faye and Marten would get together.  I was angry for a while once he hooked up with Dora, but eventually, I decided they go pretty well together.  Still, Faye needs someone, just because it's getting old with her being a third wheel and being all awkward about Dora and Marten and complaining.  She needs some kind of action, anyway, besides just being the bitter, violent, sarcastic-oneliner spouting character.

I like Sven as a character, and he and Faye have nice chemistry.  I like that he's actually changed a lot over the course of the comic.  I can see all the arguments against them getting together, though.  They do seem to be developing in a friends kind of way rather than a making kisses kind of way, but hey, that could change!  I suppose the biggest obstacle for them is the fact that it seems like an obvious option, which means it's much less likely Jeph will go down that road...

Still, I, for one, am keeping my fingers crossed - especially since Sven showed up in today's comic! :)

I don't hate the Faye/Sven idea, but I think both characters have far to go before it's a possibility. Basic conflict—Faye fears anyone she loves will ditch her/Sven is a noted ditcher of women. Ya gots ta resolve that, and, unless you've really got it in for Faye, Sven's part can't be done while they're already in a relationship. Forgive my Buffycentricity (I just got Season 6 and am re-viewing), but it's much like Buffy and Spike. It might be a good thing if Spike really changed (which he, so far as we know, can't: that's what makes his scene in the season finale such a shocker), but so long as he remains the same, it's a disaster.

If Sven 'backslides,' Faye is not in a place now where she can 'write it off.' It will, I suspect, send her back and deeper into her personal hell.

No, you're not the only one who loves it, unfortunately.
Most of the others don't hate it, they just see how BAD an idea it is.
Whereas I HATE it. HATE it!

Remember Faye's abandonment issue?  Then why do you want her to hook up with the comic's serial abandoner?  Sven has coasted with women on his pretty boy looks, and consistently left (through windows if necessary) whenever they got unpleasant, knowing another blonde would throw herself at him the next day.  You think Faye should trust Sven, when she couldn't bring herself to trust Marten??

Marten waited for her, was there for her, friend, companion, gave her shelter, shared whatever he had, waited for her to work out her problems, and then was left hanging.  After all that, you think Faye should just give herself to this cad?  Besides being a vicious kick in the groin to Marten, and not even counting Dora's objections, you actually LIKE this idea?

Perhaps you think Hanners, with her dirt phobia, should hook up with Peanuts' Pigpen?  Or Faye, trying not to be an alcoholic, should hook up with Jimbo (I don't think we've ever seen him outside of the bar...)

Don't hold it in, Tomart! Let it all out! (I'm not being mean, but your post reminds me of a Mad Magazine 'Sixty Seconds' where Mike Walrus asks kids what they think about school. The answer: "Bleah! Hate it!")

Yes, Sven is a cad, but hopefully he can change. For the record, if Sir Galahad himself started dating Faye (not that he would, being all pure an' everything), I suspect Marten would have a problem with it. I know, were I he, I would.

One thing that's really interesting: why do we (or I, if it makes you happy) so need Faye to be with anyone? Are we all closet soap opera fanatics, Shakespearean comedy fans, or do we simply fear she'll never reproduce?

As for Hanners and Pigpen, for crying out loud, he's a minor. D'you want her to get arrested?

Don't sugarcoat it; tell us what you really think!  Yeah, that was my intent.  :-)  Yet I eschewed obscenity and ad-hominem flaming.   :angel:

"Hopefully Sven can change."  Yeah, he's been all nice lately, with prettier hair than most of the women, high cheekbones, smooth lady skills and clever repartez. Maybe it's just me wanting a humble, lonely nice guy (like Marten was) to win out over someone like that.  So I guess I'm projecting as much as someone whose heart throbs at those attractive, lucky bastards.  And yes, her hooking up with anyone now would offend me (and Marten) deeply.

As for Faye's chastity, many of us seem to wish she'd get to enjoy the comfort and pleasure of a safe, rewarding physical relationship. To help her grow, emotionally and spiritually! (See? I can sugarcoat, too. And project even more.)  Notice: Faye's the only major character (almost the only character in the strip) not getting any. So it's natural for her and Hanners to hang out, and for us to want to hook her up.

I started reading Peanuts when I was about their putative age; Pigpen HAS to be older than Hanners by now... 
Anyone remember when Shultz drew a few paperbacks worth of cartoons of teenagers who looked a lot like his Peanuts characters, only tall, gawky and struggling with adolescence and religious themes?  They were creepy!

I think you're all missing the most obvious choice here. 

What's the one thing you really wouldn't expect? Who's the one person in QC who would mix with Faye like oil and water?  Who's the one person Faye hangs out with the most now that Dora and Marten are occupying each other?  Who's the ONE person in QC with more problems than Faye?

The answer's not Sven.

I agree.

"Who's the one character in QC with more problems than Faye?" [Hanners.]

Hmm, yes. I like it.  Remember the stare: "Are you fucking with me?"  "Yes, I'm sorry."

Everybody says that Faye has "issues", but what kind of issues are these?  They are abandonment issues.  No matter how close she gets to a person, there will always be that fear of abandonment.

Now, how can Faye easily get in a relationship with a man who is a known womanizer?  Even though Sven has resolved to give up his sleazy ways, how can Faye be sure that he won't leave her right her after she puts out?  I don't think she's willing take that risk, and I think you will agree.
Yeah, this pretty much sums up my thoughts on how likely it is. Regardless, I kind of like the idea of the characters together :P

Well, all I can say is that in #1073 http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1073 it's clear to me that Faye digs the attention, even if she wants to be angry. For his part, that's not exactly charm Sven is using on her. There may be hope here for both of them as persons, if nothing else.

Faye obviously has a thing for svensven. I mean, whether the two actually get toghether or something is one thing, but she obviously has some feelings for him. Who wouldn't? He's an attractive guy who puts up with her snarky attitude (usually).

I for one would like to see them get together, maybe even a, dare I say, friends with Benefits? Like Dora said, faye needs to get layed, but she's not really in an emotional position for a relationship. So maybe some care free sex with the Svenster? I could see that being fun to read. Especially if they had to be all sneaky about it, but then, Ohoho, One of them starts actually having EXTREME feelings for one another, then that unravels a new plotline, AND BAM!

..
.I'm Ramlbling haha. I know Faye would never do that though. She doesn't seem like the kind of girl who would be down for casual sex.

But hey, I can dream?

This is your "obvious" proof that she has feelings for him???  I despise attractive people; they think they're all that, and stupid people TREAT them like they're all that.  For all the unfair advantages they get, they should be disdained by the rest of us.

As for Sven/Hanners...   I don't see it, at all.  They're too different, in so many ways.

Dude, I haven't posted in forever.....but I feel the need now...

Good relationships are based on friendships first. Sven and Faye are building a good relationship. Maybe Faye chills out a little bit, they make out, she decides that she'd rather have him as a friend, and they move on from there.

But it's a major plot point of who Faye is going to hook up with. Sven is really the logical answer. If they continue to be friends, Sven might try to clean up his act (which he has been doing) to impress her. Stranger relationships have occurred.

And skaps is right, you never know exactly what's going to happen until they actually start to unfold.

Or Jeph is just screwing with us. Which is entirely possible.

They make nice friends - they have a cool vibe going on, especially where Faye told him about his fake guitar.  Faye is exactly the kind of girl Sven needs, but Sven is probably not the kind of guy Faye (or any sane woman) needs.  It's too easy to imagine him giving in to temptation, no matter how he feels about his current girlfriend.

Still, I wouldn't object to Faye using Sven to scratch an itch and then dumping him.   :laugh:

Yes, we should hate people based on their genetic makeup which determines their appearance.  That is perfectly rational and not at all similar to racism!

And of course people born genetically predisposed to attractiveness should refuse to "take advantage" of anyone,  and shoulld get plastic surgery to look "average" or even homely.  And persons born with above-average intelligence should deprive themselves of oxygen for just enough time to kill off some brain cells and bring their IQ down to normal, so they won't have any advantage over others in gaining school admission or jobs.

Touché.   (how do you get the little accent mark over the e?)      [Edit: Thanks!]

In my own defense, I'm merely advocating a compensatory disdain (that few would participate in) in an attempt to balance the karmic scales. It has been demonstrated that attractive people receive better treatment from others, are preferentially selected and rewarded over the less attractive, in many different ways.  It's an evolutionary mechanism, putting attractive couples together and getting everyone else to help them and their offspring survive and procreate some more, thus promoting good genes. (But honestly, noticing women gushing over Sven makes me sick.)

Well, as a conscious entity, I could rationalize a more level playing field, or one based on merit, or intellect, or ethics, or cooperation, or genius.  But actually my motive is deep-seated resentment at pretty boys taking women that I wanted. So I would much rather Marten gets Faye, and Sven gets STDs.  :laugh:  Have a nice day!
