Let's try not to get this one shut down, 'kay?

I'm thinking only four strips this week, and one is the OMG Turkeys.

I'm also not making this a poll thread because... well because I don't wanna.

I'd like to see a "Mmmm, Waffles" moment, though. We need a Teh Funny after the Teh Drama from last week.

You realize, of course, that the turkeys are probably just going to make fun of this place for four or more panels.

Turdy turkeys talking dirty in Turkish.

The week may also feature another night time sequence in (Dora's and) Marten's bedroom with the only illumination being a reflection from the Shame Orb thru the window.

I predict three days of Yelling Bird castigating forum posters, then OMGTurkeys break the fifth wall, then a redraw of strip 237 just to mess with people.

Is it awful I'm half-hoping for a week of filler?  Yelling bird, Sweet Tits, the OMG Turkeys...maybe have some HAWT PINTSIZE ACTION minus the humans, but nothing really plot driven?

Don't get me wrong, I want to see what happens next, but...after a climax like that, a breather could be nice too.

I just hope that the week swings back towards comedy. The last couple strips have been all drama. The comic has not had a good dirty joke in a while.

I don't think thats gonna happen. Seems to be a Marten & Faye page today (currently watching Jeph on Justin.tv).

And I really can't see the comic just heading straight into comedy this week, it'd be too much of a mood whiplash. The emotions right now need to be played out and any comedy might ruin the buildup going on.

Given that I've never seen a platypus run amok, I'm very curious to see how that would turn out!
Also, I think your avatar is perfect: it reflects the state of mind of the viewer. When I first saw it, it was a sort of exhilarated expression, as you raised your UBMEOD above your head and charged into the fray in last week's thread for the first time. Now the drama has sunk in, and more stuff has happened in the comic, it's fearful, nauseous and more than a little weirded out.

... Funny that.

I've only seen one platypus rampage in my time.  It was terrible... blood and bodily fluids everywhere, dazed survivors leaning against walls, mumbling, "It has fur... it has a beak... why did God do it..."

You don't wanna get involved in a Platypus fight, man.  It's a bad scene.

The only problem is, how would we know it was Dora's stuff?

Am I the only one who sees Mieville staying with Marten and Pintsize somehow ending up with Dora? I mean the little guy did help hammer a couple of nails into that coffin last Monday, so I doubt his Marten's favourite AnthroPC right now. (Either that or Marten uploads Pintsize to the computer and pawns off the chassis so he can get out of town for a while.)

Next strip:   


Faye appears at Angus's door. 

"Hey Angus may I ask a HUGE favor... I need a place to stay my apartment burned down."

"WHAT--  Gosh what happened?"

"I was... doing laundry..."

"You burned down your APARTMENT doing LAUNDRY?!"

"....lets just say I'm not very good at ironing."

A nice beginning to the week... interesting to see how rational Marten seems at this point, Faye reacting as per expectation. I'm looking forward to seeing her going into work, if we get to this week. It will be interesting to see Dora's spin on the situation.

Well, this seems to be the next morning rather than a direct continuation from 1800. Not only did Marten's door going "click" seemed like a pretty definitive "not going to talk now", but they're in the kitchen, and they've both changed clothes (well, Marten changed his T-shirt). They've had some time to sleep off the immediate emotions, which is probably why Marten's comparatively rational [Faye's angry because she's just found out the gory details, and so hasn't had time to metabolise the angry homones]

Jeph's captured the raw emotion so well it's almost scary.

Faye's first interaction with Dora following this is going to be quite interesting...I'm sure she wants to respect Marten's wishes to not jump down her throat. But then again, she's also going to want to stick up for her best friend and confront her about the allegations made about Marten's feelings for her, right? Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that Faye's gonna turn into psycho bitch lady. But I do foresee a good amount of passive-aggressiveness between those two in the near future.

Yet again... I maintain my addiction while still not really enjoying the new strips. I won't pretend that the whole last 150 or so comics have been all bad. There were some utterly awesome strips in that batch, but then every time it goes back to developing the main plot threads I just feel so sad. I don't get a choice in the way I react to the plot... it's just a reflex.

Since I don't even know if I have the willpower to quit, please can we get back to funny and cute comics involving Marigold and Hannelore, please? I don't feel any bizarre and completely inappropriate sense of investment in what they get up to.

Man, Marten looks shredded.  Poor bastard.  I can see why he'd want to hold Faye back... no need for her to get involved... but I wonder if Faye's gonna bother with a poker face next time she sees Dora?  I can easily see what Dora's response would be when she finds that Marten has pretty much immediately told Faye about their breakup conversation and the reason why.  Probably something along the lines of, "So he opened up to you the second I dumped him.  What a fuckin' surprise."

Well Faye would probably get curious when Dora didn't show up at the apartment they share after about a week, and Marten needs to talk to someone.

Besides, Dora ended the relationship. When and to whom Marten opens up is not really any of her business anymore, is it?

I kind of like the idea too, but it seems like it's probably the same hoodie he's had on since 1778. (I think at the time, Dora mentioned that he had a gazillion other black hoodies).

Maybe I'm getting a bad read on this, but it seems like Marten maybe gave Faye the shorthand of what happened, and it lost a little bit in translation. (sort of: "Dora broke up with me because she thinks we want to screw" vs. "Dora broke up with me because she thinks she's so crazy that she'll always believe we want to screw). If that's the case, I wonder what Faye will think of Dora's side of the story. I mean, I can't believe Faye would be all that more sympathetic to reasoning B over reasoning A, but it IS slightly less rabid batshit crazy.

It sounds to me like Marten told her the real story. I can see Faye being just as angry over reasoning A as reasoning B; remember Faye put in just as much time as Marten in reassuring Dora that she was ok with their relationship and not pining away for Marten. Plus, SHE JUST STARTED DATING ANOTHER GUY. Faye has the right to be that upset with her.
