Quote from: A Duck link=topic=30336.msg1288522

I've noticed Jeph's art has gotten somewhat...simpler (not worse) since he started Alice Grove, in particular. Not exactly my cup of tea, but I'm ok with it anyway.

Might also be a change in versions of PS.

Okay, today's over-analysis of comic 2851  is brought to you by Mooski:

1.  Marten has dressed dapper for Claire.
2.  Claire looks even happier than usual to see Marten.
3.  Claire is standing in front of a house that is not hers.  She lives at 221 Elm.
4.  The number over Claire's head in every panel she's in today is 143.
5.  For the overly romantic amongst you, 143 has a special meaning.

Conclusion:  today was the day Claire fell in love with Marten.

You read it here first.  Heh.

holy crap, the 143 thing makes sense! It's "I love you" according to Urban Dictionary. Nice catch!
I wouldn't say she just fell in love with Marten, though.

"Today", Mooski. Really. "Today".

I don't think there's any question she's been crushing pretty hard on Marten for a while, but I'd say there's an arguable difference between a crush and being in love.  Also, if the house number is actually symbolism, I'd make the case there's a reason it's being used today as opposed to any other day.

That said, there are at least two ways to read the symbolism:

- 143 over Claire's head is like a stylized thought balloon:  she's thinking it about Marten
- 143 over Claire's head is supposed to be read from top to bottom:  "I love you, Claire" - and Marten is thinking it.

Option one seemed more likely, especially since it's been less than a week since Marten deliberately chose the word "like" to describe his feelings for her.

Either way, it's a fun easter egg.

It'll make me extremely sad if Marten-Claire goes down because Claire is more into Marten than the other way around.
Then again, Marten is wearing a freaking button up shirt because of her.

By the way, it's been a while since we've seen a lot of the cast, longer than usual even. Am I just imagining things?

I'm really not happy about Gabby's disappearance and said reason for disappearance. An MLS student just quitting an internship at the library? Mmkay. But Jeph's comic so ... *Kanye shrug*

Glad Clinton is taking Marten/Claire so well. I predict he'll consider Emily too weird for him.
Actually, they are both pretty odd and that may result in a relationship of discontinuities, misinterpretations, and other oddities - I bet hilarity would ensue.

Random thought: How the heck does Marten's junk fit in those pants?
I thought discussion of private parts was strictly off limits? Or is this just applicable to Claire? :evil:
Also, I feel really sorry for Emily. Marten and Claire are evil if they try to set her up with Clinton. Emily is a nice person, Clinton is not.

.............

I think that Marten is really liking this relationship for a number of reasons:
1 - He's more experienced with relationships than Claire is and therefore isn't uncomfortable around her.  For a change he can be more of the relationship "alpha".  But even with that being said, their relationship can be totally new ground for them both and that's fun and exciting.
2 - She is more "feminine" than his other relationships (I realize that may be strange given her original gender but it just goes to show how that can be.)
3 - She won't beat him into the ground if he innocently messes something up.
4 - She's sooooo nice.

I must say that whether Jeph initially realized or not, the 'Claireten' thing in QC has potential to be complex, innovative and fun for us 'observers'.

I'm not sure at all why you would say that Clinton is not nice.  He's VERY protective of his sister and is quite gallant about it.  Please elaborate on your opinion.  Thanks.

I don't think Clinton is a bad person. He usually means well and I think he really cannot see how some of his actions might be perceived as being wrong (case in point: the picture he took of Hanners). He does care about Claire, too, even if he sometimes (all the times) goes a little overboard.

He's kind of a dick, but he means well and I think "being a dick" is beyond his control, for the moment. I'd say he's a better person than what Sven used to be, for example.

Of course, a possible situation between Clinton and Emily means character development for him, which I don't think we really got much of.

I think that Marten is really liking this relationship for a number of reasons:
1 - He's more experienced with relationships than Claire is and therefore isn't uncomfortable around her.  For a change he can be more of the relationship "alpha".  But even with that being said, their relationship can be totally new ground for them both and that's fun and exciting.

4 - She's sooooo nice.

I must say that whether Jeph initially realized or not, the 'Claireten' thing in QC has potential to be complex, innovative and fun for us 'observers'.

I said before and I repeat: Claire is Marten's first relationship (that we know of) that starts in a healthy, drama-free situation. Nothing like Faye (oh god), Dora and Padma. I look forward to seeing those two develop their relationship for a long while, hopefully longer than Marten-Dora was a thing.

He's also got a massive entitlement complex, he's so protective of Claire that he's almost stifling (trying to take the role of the traditional father who locks a daughter away from potential suitors), and he has no understanding of boundaries.

It just dawned on me that Marten thinks Faye is single !??

She did have the post-break up hangover.
http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=2850
But even though Marten has mentally reclassified her as single, he wouldn't try to set her up on a date, she and Angus split just the day before (in QC time).

Fair enough. He clearly needs to work through a lot of issues. Doesn't mean he's a fundamentally bad person, though.

On the subject of Clinton being a overprotective jerk, I wonder if that's his motivation here, rather than meeting a girl(Well, primarily, since I'm sure he wouldn't mind that). Spend the day with Marten and scope him out.

Kind of like Marten spending the night drinking with Angus way back in the 1000s? Makes sense. He wouldn't tell Claire about it, too.

My analysis is that he's never had a relationship, so he doesn't really know how to behave un-selfishly around women, which means his mom and Claire are the only ones in his life. So he's overprotective to the point of unintentionally being jerk.

Clinton and Emily do have things in common though. An interest in AI and robotics at least, they are also a bit unconventional (Anyone remember "Ideally hydronamic" from comic 2299)
Personally I think they'd make an interesting couple, since Emily has shown to be slightly over-emotional (crying after the failure of giving peas a chance (2438)) I could see him being really protective of her.
And it would be kind of in character for Clinton to ask Emily out, and for Emily to just say Yes.
Which would shock everyone.
This could actually be kind of fun

If so, they look darn good on him.  Although he's wearing the wrong belt.

That was the exact first QC I ever read.

He's also got a massive entitlement complex, he's so protective of Claire that he's almost stifling (trying to take the role of the traditional father who locks a daughter away from potential suitors), and he has no understanding of boundaries.

Eh, I think that's kind of harsh and a bit unfair. From his response at Emily's party when Claire tells him that she told Marten about being trans, his immediate reaction was "He wasn't a JERK about it, was he?" suggesting that Claire has frequently been the target of bullies. Claire didn't start off her arc having high-flying self esteem, so this may have been an issue. Also, their father fucked over their mother by cheating. That likely pushed Clinton into overdrive, not wanting another male to hurt the women in his life.

Also, Clinton's not, IMO, acted in the way you suggest. He didn't even pitch a fit when Claire told him that she and Marten were dating. He was mildly snarky about it. I actually thought Claire's "can't you be happy for me?!" was a bit overwrought there. It's not like he threatened to castrate Marten or suggesting pistols at dawn or somesuch.

I sort of feel about Clinton what I've felt about Dora. A couple of mistakes and anything they do is viewed through a cynical lens. No one is disputing that Clinton was extremely creepy toward Hannelore. But it's been ages since then and he's acted like less of a disaster in subsequent meetings. He loves his sister. He's not keeping her in shackles or guilt-tripping her for having a life. He's a 21 year old who has had to deal with a lot of shit - losing his hand, losing his father, and adjusting to having a sister. All things considered, he's not such a bad egg, in my view.

it's been my observation that many of the type of people who hang out on webcomic forums seem to have trouble dealing with the concept of characters having more than one defining trait.

Except when it's the Allosaurus Feeding Station bus, of course.

How about an extra QC strip every month, starring a character that backers get to vote for. That sounds pretty good to me. Let's go with that. Yeah. This is your chance to find out what REALLY happened to Sarah

Interesting that Marten and Clinton are wearing the same shirt.

Claire is carrying off the "pretty in pink" look beautifully.

I hope that Emily and Clinton hit it off, even if only as friends. Neither seem to grasp many social concepts - boundaries for one thing. Emily is quirky but nice, Clinton inept but gallant. I can easily imagine him defending her against unkindness, and even capturing her heart that way. They both deserve love, and seeing Claire so happy just makes me wish everyone well.

Ah, but Vespa Avenger reformed, and even saved Steve's life several times while they were employed with the USDoKYA.  It's all part of my headcanon, in Boyfriend Waiting Area, the QC spinoff comic-that-doesn't-exist in which Steve and the other boyfriends (and several girlfriends) regale each other with tales of adventure and derring-do while waiting for the smoke alarms to be turned off.

The one thing that Marten didn't expect to happen today seems to have happened: he's found himself becoming Clinton's mentor in the ways of behaving like a mature man with women. It depends when Mr A ran off but it is possible that Clinton has not had a proper male role model since he started adolescence. His current template could be strangers and the TV. He could do worse than Marten, I suppose.

I've got the feeling that they are going to spend the walk to the library with Marten giving Clinton a crash-course in being nice instead of creepy. I can also see Marten whispering cues to Clinton whilst he is asking Emily out. Being Emily, she will see nothing odd about it.

Bonus point if, at some point, someone calls Marten 'Cyrano'.

It tells you a lot about how fundamentally nice Marten and Claire are. Now they are past the moment of the tease, they are genuinely focussed on making this work. Neither of them wants to see anyone hurt.

Even though the Emily/Clinton match-up will be fun to watch, I would have LOVED to see Faye's reaction to a suggestion about her and Clinton...  :psyduck:

If Jeph ever tended to fall into standard sitcom tropes, I'd expect Emily to misunderstand Marten as asking HER out when he tells her about Clinton. But Jeph rarely falls into such obvious storytelling, so I'd expect him to add his own twist even if that's what he's planning.
