I think it would still be consistent if Dora went all "I'm sorry Marten, I'm not ready for this talk yet. Could you please avoid coming here for now? I'll contact you when I'm ready." Marten would comply, because he's the kind to leave people space (a bit too much at times, to his own detriment, but that's not the point).
Then, Dora being Dora, and prone to let panic take the best out of her, she'll cower from initiating that talk for MONTHS, to the point that Faye has to physically threaten her.

And the way things go, by the time Dora finally gets around to contacting Marten again, Marten will have gotten used to not having her around, will have mostly gotten over her, and HE will be the one who doesn't want to be bothered. He had to psych himself up to go into CoD remember? It'll be easier for him if Dora blows him off, and if she keeps blowing him off with lame excuses, Marten could come to the conclusion that Dora really doesn't want to see him again, and so will drop yet another ex completely from his life. If you really think about it, neither of them really HAVE to see each other again, Marten stays out of CoD, Dora stays away from Marten's apartment. Hanners and Faye would just have to accept the change in their social circles.

Or Faye will have to force them both to meet up together at swordpoint.

What gets me is, if she's so insecure about relationships, how in the world does that translate into her owning a (relatively successful) business? I mean, yeah, we don't see many customers at CoD (except after the Indie Rag review), but if the place is still up and running, it means that she must be doing something right.

I know, it's not the same thing, but personal insecurities do have a way of cropping up at inopportune times at work and in other situations.

There are some strips that show how she worries about CoD's future.

I'd like to point out that Marten and Faye tying Clinton to a chair and threatening him with a sword is HELLA ILLEGAL.

Stalking someone is also kind of illegal as well.

No more so than stalking someone and causing them distress. And besides, Faye is a barista, I'm sure threatening someone with deadly force and with a deadly weapon is part of the job description.

Sure, sure...but in fiction we all know "WHY DOES NOBODY EVER GO TO THE POLICE?"

Because in fiction, the cops are useless, and are most likely amongst the first to die when brought into a situation (somewhere between the "first girl" and the bad comic relief").

More like redshirts.  In a police drama, where there are major characters, it's the little beat cops or the unnamed guys on patrol that wind up getting sacrificed.  In a non-police drama, they're just effing useless, something for the protagonists to easily outwit. 

Besides, they're busy sitting at speed traps, writing parking tickets, and responding to "domestic disturbances".  They'll never notice protagonists breaking the law...



Edit:  added some links for ya.  Happy easter!

I'm not defending Clinton, but is going to see someone at a public place actually illegal?  I think you guys are overdoing it with the whole "HOLY SHIT STALKING IS A FELONY AND THAT IS WHAT CLINTON IS DOING".  The most they could really get him for is trespassing, if they ask him to leave and he doesn't, but only if they hadn't tied him up and prevented him from leaving.

(I'm not saying we should be all "HOLY SHIT KIDNAPPING IS A FELONY" either.  In fact, we should be uniting in solidarity, and hoping that Jeph recovers from his Butts)

Perhaps not, but finding out where she worked via Twitter and coming after her that way can be seen as a form of e-stalking.

Hannelore should be grateful that being creepy is legal.

Yeah would be kinda hypocritical of her to file charges against Clinton after stalking Marten when they first met...
