Uh, I wouldn't have gotten the idea myself, but now that you say it... It sounds kind of plausible.

I have to say that I have a bad feeling for Faye and Angus. (Has this been discussed much in last week's thread? I didn't read it as thoroughly as most other weeks.)
What do you think Faye means by "What Angus wants and what I want don't match up"? If it's not the long-distance thing, I really can't see what exactly she's talking about. Just that Angus wants to get a different job? Or something that happened "off-screen"? And what does Faye want long-term? Apart from just continuing with everything as it is, she's never said anything. Why would it be incompatible with what Angus wants? To me, this sounds like giving up too easily (if giving up is indeed what she's doing).
Anyway, I think it's a really bad sign that in front of Angus Faye puts on a happy face - and does this quite well; at first I thought she was being sincere - while inside, she feels precisely the opposite. Concealing your true feelings from your partner in this way is not good for either her or Angus. Instead of telling Dora what problems she has with Angus' plans for the future, she should be talking to Angus about them - or rather; it's good to talk it over with a friend, too, but she definitely should let Angus know something's up. I mean, there he goes thinking all is great while Faye is questioning the long-term viability of their relationship.

Prediction.


Angus gets the job and moves
Things go downhill from there
Sven has come to tell them he's joining a Monestary
Faye snaps and swears off men
Tai sets her up with Swing Girl

Epiphany for Faye and she and Swing Girl move in with Tai and Dora.





Well, it's no stranger than anything else that happens in QCland.

Perhaps it's something different from what we think.  Maybe Sven is up for musical director on the same show Angus auditioned for, and he's going to tell her that Angus is just about a given to be hired.

It's surprising we've never seen Sven in a recording studio.  He has to do his demos someplace, and it would interesting to see what a studio in the world of AIs looks like.  Just imagine, a scene where Sven is arguing with Producertron 9000 over lyrics.

A poll suggestion: What is Sven going to tell Faye?

  • "I just got some test results back; it's chlamydia."
  • "I'm moving to Nashville."
  • "I can't stand it - I love you, Faye! Marry me!"

  • "Someone stole my underwear."

Faye's response is so exactly what my response has been inside my head in so many such situations, it was really satisfying to see her say it out loud.  And that combined with being totally blindsided by this plot twist made me laugh my butt off.  (Oh no, somebody get me a butt-tourniquet.)

I think she's too overwhelmed to go into rage mode.

And no, I don't think we're likely headed for hearing that Sven has HIV...  My money's on his coming to confess that Faye (and her butt) is still haunting his dreams.

Easy there guys, it was just a reference to The Room.

Prediction: Denny Cosette is accosted by an angry man about drugs, but the man is stopped when Johnny Dora and Mark Faye appear and tackle him. The next five strips after that will be a panning shot of the golden gate bridge.

Sven ? Wasnt missing that dude.

What about Raven ? I'm missing Raven !

And about what this is about: I think Sven wants to have some final chat about their failed relationship. Though technically they already had that, did they not ?



5)  I married Raven.
I kind of can see that relationship work, though I doubt either of them would marry ANYONE.

Okay ... actually nifty strategy of the disease, to hide and wait ... but does any other STD have this as well ? AIDS obviously doesnt do it, neither does syphillis, at least not according to Wikipedia.



He definitely has breast cancer.
Since we are in medical truths revealed mode: men CAN get breast cancer, even if what men have in respect to breast tissue is most of the time very little, thus this cancer is pretty rare.

Based on the fact that he actually admitted to Hanners that he hadn't been dating because he missed Faye so much (thanks for that link!), I suspect it's going to be about him wanting to get back together rather than any of the nastier stuff. That would make for comic drama, which is QC's strength. Finding out that he's given Faye (and therefore Angus) an STD/STI would be way too mean.

I hope.

Also, I was just thinking to myself last week that we hadn't seen Sven in quite some time.

Yeah sure, but with her reaction, I was thinking that there must be something else. I wouldn't question a well-working relationship that way (and withhold my fears from my partner) because of such a change - but then, I am of course not Faye and maybe the Angus-Faye relationship is not as well-working anyways? Maybe Faye and Angus aren't that close after all? We don't see that much of any close, emotional interaction between them in-comic.
Or maybe I am reading way more into Faye's reaction than there is. I just hope that she gets through this episode in the way that will ultimately make her the happiest (be it by sticking with Angus and learning to cope with the change in their relationship or by deciding that she does not want to stay in that relationship any longer - right now, I am really not sure which one it will be).

Yeah. Faye looks really sorry in that strip. She still has feelings for Sven, but cannot tolerate his infidelity.

Also, check my sig below. Basically, Faye  broke Sven. After Sven's fling with Gina Riversmith, resulting in Faye leaving him, Sven has not been interested in other girls than Faye. It has not been any lack of opportunities, but he is just not interested, preferring instead to read the history of the Crusades.

So, why do Sven need to talk to Faye? Except for some gag theories in this forum, I believe the real reason must be his feelings for her. With Dora lurking around at CoD, it certainly is not the best setting for him to confess his love to Faye. Still, I guess he wants to tell her he has changed, and ask for another chance if/when Faye breaks up with Angus.

I don't quite understand Faye right now. I mean, if Angus gets the gig, it makes things uncomfortable, but love isn't a matter of comfort.

As for Sven, I do hope he's about to manifest his good side.

I kinda missed him. Not enough to be aware of it before he appeared again, mind you.

The character I'm actually really missing is Lydia.

Is it not, now? Isn't (romantic) love about feeling good around your subject  of desire and having that feeling returned? There is only so much selflessness love can endure without it becoming painful.

I've not got experience of being the person it's been said to but the person who has said it, normal responses I've gotten are "What's wrong?" and "What have I done now?", but that might be that the people I've ended up saying as a "greeting" now what my personality is like and that in person I'm not that social and usually lost in thought or reading.

Maybe. I guess Angus' attraction to Faye was mainly because she consistently sassed him, giving him a real challenge. Angus loves challenges, and Faye as a sparring partner gave him a good work-out (mental, as well as physical  :mrgreen:). But now, after conquering her, he is looking for new challenges. I am not saying that Angus is a bad guy. He really likes Faye, and would prefer staying with her, but would not let her be a hindrance to his ambitions. If moving to NYC would mean a breakup with Faye, it would not stop him from moving.

We had a hint that Faye and Angus might have some problems in connection with the latest Hannersplosion, when Angus was not pleased because Faye was drunk. I guess Faye still has alcohol problems, and that this has strained their relationship.
