I'm surprised nobody brought it up when Clinton's hand was a plot point.

OK, I know this is late, but...

Indeed.

Glad to see Faye get some payback for that butt crack she made.

As for the couch ... mebbe Faye got tired of trying to move it up/down (the forum never settled that) the stairs for Dora?
Well, Dora has moved out of the building to another town, so I guess it would have to be down now. Maybe it's too big to fit in Dora's new place?

It's possible that the couch we saw Sven and Faye arguing over wasn't the one in the apartment. It's also possible that the brown piece of furniture isn't a couch; it might be a recliner or a loveseat (two-person couch).

He would get emotionally attached to her as he should.

This happens to me, I hate it = (

I don't think this is indifference, I think it's pretty normal relationship dynamics.

I agree 100% with this. Even my very close friends may go MIA for a short time during a fresh relationship, I don't take offense to it... usually = P

Dude, did Elliot really expect her to puts the moves on him first?
If she was ever into him in the first place she def stopped being into his pansy ass when he sat back and waited for her to read his mind.

We're talking about a comic where Dora went for Marten here.

yeah, and see how well that worked out? If a dude doesn't put the moves on you first hesjustnotthatintoyou.

I would argue that Marten WAS that into Dora, it's just Dora went completely off the reservation. Couldn't deal with the shit from her past and it blew up in her face. I have a hard time putting that on Marten.

It's merely often puns.  :-D

Yes. This is why I hear a strange grinding noise whenever I see Dora whining about Marten's  lack of direction, etc. I think it's my teeth. The idea that Marten was ever 'settling' for Dora was pretty much a product of her underwhelming regard for herself as a romantic interest. The truth is that she'd have been a whole lot happier had Marten been less into her. They might even still be together, except, you know, Marten would've dumped Dora because he wasn't that into her. If that sounds crazy, well…

Looks like Faye wants to keep Marten.

Happy weekend everybody !

I was wondering how long it would be before the Farten 'shipping began.

BTW, y'all are wrong about who gets to decide what is a troll.  "Troll" does not mean "person with unpopular, ill-devised opinion"; it means "person who posts inflammatory opinion with the intent of provoking a negative response".  As direct intent is required, only a poster can decide whether or not he is trolling - though of course he can lie about his motive later.

TBU* - whether or not the poster is the only person who can know, as that person is unlikely to fess up, the only person's opinion that actually counts is the moderator's. So... practically speaking, they were right about who gets to decide.**

BTW I'm not sure that post you quoted was actually shipping***.

Well, you can choose to regard a poster as a troller and not engage him/her/it ... Which I've found conducive to my sanity on this and other forums. No need to bring a bag of troll food.

The idea that Marten was ever 'settling' for Dora was pretty much a product of her underwhelming regard for herself as a romantic interest.

If that sounds crazy, well…

Just wondering, who would be ok with their significant other still living with the person they were in love with, and being opposed to moving out?

The fact it lasted as long as it did is a testament to Dora's patience.  He didn't want to move out, never went out of his way to show how special she was, etc.  It was just "Ho hum, I'm in a relationship but don't want my life to change at all".  Past issues or not, it would be a tough situation for any girl to swallow.

Yes. This is why I hear a strange grinding noise whenever I see Dora whining about Marten's  lack of direction, etc. I think it's my teeth. The idea that Marten was ever 'settling' for Dora was pretty much a product of her underwhelming regard for herself as a romantic interest. The truth is that she'd have been a whole lot happier had Marten been less into her. They might even still be together, except, you know, Marten would've dumped Dora because he wasn't that into her. If that sounds crazy, well…

Just wondering, who would be ok with their significant other still living with the person they were in love with, and being opposed to moving out?

The fact it lasted as long as it did is a testament to Dora's patience.  He didn't want to move out, never went out of his way to show how special she was, etc.  It was just "Ho hum, I'm in a relationship but don't want my life to change at all".  Past issues or not, it would be a tough situation for any girl to swallow.

Damn it, just when I had Dora all figured out you throw this curve ball. I never even bothered to stand in her shoes, the view from over here is much gloomier than I had imagined. It's funny that I never realized Steve's situation was basically the same as Marten's with the exception that Steve's GF actually had a romantic relationship with the guy she was living with. That being said I immediately felt sorry for Steve when that situation was presented to us and my first instinct was to tell him to run... I guess I should have told Dora the same thing. While my gut feeling at first was to tell her to give it some time, I knew Marten wouldn't commit to anything he couldn't fully commit to. Either way, it still stands that Dora sabotaged herself, not Marten, and if these really were issues that were eating away at her, she should have spoken up. (About more than just the fact that she thought Marten was still crushing on Faye.)

Sheezus, this is what I get for not reading for a weekend... 4 pages of some really offtopic discussion interspersed with lunacy and intrigue both... so in the name of Chaos, here's today's 2c worth of random... apologies if I re-hash someone elses words, I kinda skimmed the last couple of pages as the tl;dr-fugue took hold.

Robotics and The Three Laws in the QC universe
If Marten was truly in danger of harm when Elliot hauled him off, then does this illustrate the lack of the 3 Laws in QC robotics, given Momo's inaction at the time?
Or did Momo sense no actual threat of harm, and thus was not compelled into action?

The Couch
Maybe Marten got to keep it because Hannelore's so attached to crashing on it?

Padma using Marten
I think when she invited Marten along on the hike, she was simply being friendly, and nothing more... I don't think there was any kind of manipulative agenda at work in the shadows. She could have even arranged it for Sam's benefit, given that Sam appears to have tagged Momo as a friend. As far as Padma knows, Momo is Marten's, after all...

I agree with you about Padma, on the grounds that she doesn't seem to have the shrewdness to be that devious.

The QC-verse can't have the Three Laws, because the Second means no free will, which means it would be intolerable to allow AnthroPCs to vote, yet they have full civil rights.

Another case where Momo didn't intervene in a hazardous situation was when Sam went over the cliff. We don't know if she can move fast enough to block a determined 13-year-old, but there's no evidence she was even lunging in that direction.

We just got official word that AnthroPCs have complete free will. They like us, but protecting us is optional.

Yeah, he did another q/a dump over on his tumblr:

he also answered my question about the cast tweets: They're canon, but if they happen to contradict something in the comic then the comic takes precedence.

Actually, he says there that tweets are canon unless they contradict a comic.  Which is weird, since that would have made her Twitter name non-canon.  But then he went back and changed the comic, so I guess both are canon unless he mentioned her last name in a later comic.  I guess she's minor enough for it to not really matter.

Or he liked the new name better after he thought of it...
... or he didn't want to be bothered to go change the twitter account

I think he's just making allowances to cover his own butt in the case of casual utterances or something that seems funny at the time.
