When I went to a conference in Madison, one of the Wisconsinites (Wisconsinians?) I talked to said it had gotten down to freezing two weeks before the conference and they were worried it would still be like that when the conference happened. In June.

Jeph said on Twitter last week that the reason he premade the comic was he realised he'd be getting home around 11 in the evening. Not a guaranteed filler but then again we can't be sure.

Hmm, Claire doesn't seem like she'd be much in a fight, since Faye has the experience, but then again, she did have to be persuaded to put down that sword, and may have powers that just haven't awakened yet.

Poor Claire. I think Faye is being a bit unkind here, but then again that's Faye.

And she's (to some extent) drunk.

Aaaaaaaand now we get the blush.

Faye really is pushing her a little too hard, but she has a point, and like Barmymoo said, that is Faye for you.

Now, what would be ironic is if Claire's following Marten around for professional reasons and actually didn't have a crush on him, but Faye got her thinking about it, and now she does. But, I doubt that's the case.

Aww SO cute. I don't know, Faye is being a little pushy here, but some people will never admit stuff like that without a little prodding. Or A LOT of prodding. She's also not the worst person to ask when you want to know how to get close to Marten.

I kind of want to see Claire/Marten dates and awkwardness now!

I'm going to guess that Faye is going to say something to the effect that Marten says something very similar on the subject.  That would lead to Claire being awkward around Marten and Marten being confused about what's happening.  Then again, Faye may have already achieved that.

I thought that sound was rendered "tweet" in English. In my native Danish, it is "pip".

We commonly use "tweet" for the sound of the kind of small birds that "tweet" even when they are adult.

The sound of a young duckling is a bit different, and I think "peep" is being used here to convey this.

The difference is that "peep" is generally a repeated, same-sound high note, louder or softer.
A tweet is more musical, has more notes, such as a bobolink's "bob-o-LINK"

I dunno if it's already been mentioned, but while it could as well be just a random inflection by Jeph, the distinction between:

"He invited ME tonight!"

and

"He INVITED me tonight!"

seems important.

They both do. The ME could imply a bit more self importance and maybe 'HE wants to spend time with ME!', with Faye giving a 'now why would you care so much about that' look.

It may well just be a quirk with the writing, but that's what I'm seeing.

But then there's the difference between "HE asked ME!" and "He asked ME!"
The former focuses on that Marten was the one that invited her, the second one focuses on that she was the one Marten invited.

I'm assuming it's just a typing quirk, because that seems way too obvious, as well as too aggressive (when including the expression and pointing) for Claire, but it definitely read the second way for me.

N'yaaa. I really want to see how this goes on. Especially with her stuttered "I'm your favourite?". If she didn't have a crush on him, then Faye seems to have planted an idea in her head. But I also really want to see how the conversation between Faye and Claire continued. I don't really believe she simply stood up on her.

Also I thought broad existential statements were reserved for LSD and other substances.

Edit: No replies yet? Surprising. Anyway:

I actually like that idea of Descartes. You can doubt anything. But by doubting anything you already prove that you exist.
