WCDT: 2882-2886 (26-30 January 2015)
« on: 25 Jan 2015, 00:54 »

So, the Fayepocalypse is upon us! What will the next week bring us? I'm sure that we all have our opinions and our own ideas of how we would continue this story thread but how would Jeph, with his mindset do it?

Personally, I'm torn between two options:
  • Faye is hospitalised and everyone has to address their feelings as they wait for the doctor to tell them her condition;
  • After bringing Faye home from the ER (after having her stomach pumped or some kind of detox treatment applied) Marten calls a 'Friends of Faye' crisis meeting at which blame is liberally shared around and the wider picture of her emotional condition emerges.
Either way, I'm hoping for a filler strip where Marigold reboots Pintsize and finds that, for some reason, his 'language' setting is stuck on 'English (Canada)' and he now speaks with a hideous faux French accent.

Thoughts, comments and criticism all welcome. Please contact a board admin if you need a soapbox to stand on.

This is such a huge, important arc for this comic.

I don't think there's going to be a suicide attempt, as I've seen you suggest in a couple posts I've seen you make since I started posting on the boards; but I do think Faye's going to end up doing something self-destructive at some point—and I think that's going to be running to Sven to get back at Dora.

Ooh. Now I hadn't thought at all of Faye running to Sven, but gosh that would be such an interesting way to finally tie in that pesky hanging loose end from awhile back..! :psyduck:

It actually seems increasingly plausible the more I think about it. And rather clever on Jeph's part! Much plan ahead. Many aha moment.

Unrelated aha/huh moment: This:psyduck: - is a duck??! I thought it was some kind of Freaking Out Homer Simpson Monkey-Bear!

Jeph does apparently come up with storylines far in advance. He could very well have been planning this since Marten's dad's wedding.

I would expect this week to be the intervention Faye needs. Again, getting Angus in on this, if he hasn't already left for NY, would not be an underhanded move if it were to smack some sense into her.

I think Angus is gone. 

Gone, gone.  He just turned and walked away when she stomped his heart by not wanting to work even try to work it out.  There may be a short arc involving Marten or someone trying to get him to care, but it's not going to work - his view will be that she's too toxic. 

And that his presence wouldn't help, only open fresh wounds.  For both of them. 


Remember, Angus makes rash decisions (like pursuing Faye) and then sticks with them to an absurd extent

It's almost comedic, really.  Or, in this case, tragic.

I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't end up in the hospital, but instead Marten cleans Faye up and looks after her, she wakes up with a killer hangover and Marten tries to piece together what happened and try and convince Faye to go get help.

Would it be surprising if Claire came over, helped with the clean up, didn't bat an eye - and then explained to Marten that she had to help mom do this with her (philandering) dad frequently when she was growing up?

...It would explain somethings, personally.

It seems to me that Claire would find it triggering (bringing up old, unpleasant memories) and refuse to do so. Perhaps it would become a source of tension between Claire and Marten, or perhaps in good ol' Martin fashion, be totally understanding toward Claire and profusely apologize.

I'm not sure Marten will invite/allow Claire over to help, as he won't want to embarrass Faye by letting Claire see her in such a state.

Indeed he mightn't even explain why he had to cut off the date properly for the above reason, which would certainly cause problems.

Claire has certainly established (Jeph has established for her) a pattern of reacting negatively initially, then backing off as she understands the situation a little better. I'm still voting for empathy on her part, in the long run.

Covering for her would be a form of enabling.  I think Marten knows better than to do that.

Not covering for her would be kind of a dick move at this point.

EVERYTHING we have seen up to now suggests that no one noticed Faye's slide into the bottle (Keep in mind, it's be less than a week!)

Marten has barely enough actual info to put it together. All he really knows for sure is that something probably upset Faye to an extreme degree (thus Pintsize's status) and she drank herself out because of it.

He doesn't know her reasons. to go broadcasting it to everyone he knows would be pretty disrespectful of her privacy. (This is the kind of issue that comes up when you are rooming with someone.)

All that said, people often do step over the line out of anger or exasperation. I could see Marten telling Claire because he (reasonably) feels put upon by the mess. But Enabling? To be doing that, he'd have to know what the problem is, and frankly there's little evidence that the problem is what everyone in these forums thinks it is.

Marten probably won't know what Faye has actually come to until Dora calls and tells him what happened. Something on the lines of:

DORA: "Hey Marten. I just call because Faye will be home early today, because she's drunk and I fired her"
MARTEN (cutting whenever necessary): "She's passed out on her vomit in my couch".
BOTH: "F**********************************************************"

Exactly. He's not in position to judge whether the situation demands violating Faye's privacy for the greater good.

I am too. I think (hope!) this plotline may establish Claire as the best/most stable relationship that Marten's ever been in.

Totally I am slow (aside from calling Goldilocks Red Riding Hood). Of course Faye's going to the hospital. Just realized 2878 totally alluded to it by its title. Wondering if this means that Dora will feel super guilty and hire Faye back (with contingencies)? I don't remember Faye being in trouble at CoD before this so it would kind of make sense for Dora to offer her the job back if Faye agrees to some kind of therapy or rehab. Maybe not a smart business move, but totally human—especially if you became friends with your employee and they've done a decent job up to that point.

To be completely honest, I hope there are repercussions such as Faye needing to go to the hospital and all that - yes, in-comic a solution for being passed-out drunk was always having friends watch over you (or not even that.. just washing your jeans and putting you into bed), and that would be enough. In real life, that can and will be deadly (as mentioned in the previous thread) and I hope Marten sets a better example than the last comic; even if you're cautious about calling emergency services because you don't want to put your friend in debt, checking if they breathe/can be raised/have a pulse isn't that expensive...

On Claire: can't say. Could be that that would be something to trigger her anxieties or provoke some mean comments (like, 'So, is Faye stupid or something? Doesn't she know when to stop?)

On enabling Faye by not telling: Well... as others have pointed out, it's been less than a week, comic-time. It's been a few days at most, and while Faye does tend dissolve her problems in ethanol, it's very much a dick move to tell virtual strangers that. Enabling would be helping her hide it from her therapist or her closest friends.

I don't think that Marten needs to reveal the extent of the situation to Claire, nor the entire backstory. Simply explaining the situation as it stands - Faye's had a lot to drink, passed out and thrown up, and could be in danger - should suffice as far as a reason for cancelling their date. Marten owes Faye confidentiality, but he also owes Claire honesty.

As for Dora, I'm sure she'll feel some amount of guilt (perhaps diluted a little by her anger at Faye), and that's a perfectly human reaction. However, there's really no way that she or anyone else can reasonably blame her for this. Firing Faye didn't make her want to drink herself into oblivion; she was going to do that anyway. Had she not been caught, it's a safe bet to say she was going to go home and keep drinking heavily.

Marten really doesn't need to say much more than "I gotta get Faye to a doctor. I'll be able to tell you more later," with "more" mutually understood to be defined as "additional information as I learn it, coupled with a respect for Faye's privacy." With which Claire can empathize, having already learned she can rely on it from Marten.

I think DSL has it right.  Marten doesn't really get up in people's business, and he doesn't really gossip.  Dunno how Claire will react, but if she does react badly, it won't be for long.  From what we know of her, she readily accepts when she's wrong about a situation (i.e. the homewrecker comment). Claire is cool like that.

Eh, he did talk about Faye and his past to Claire and the reason they didn't work out would be pretty personal.

Personally, I'd say if they're passed out, you can't get them to wake up, and/or their breathing's irregular. It's really a judgement call.

This point would be well within the medical attention range, I believe. 

Back when i worked at a college, I had to call EMS a few times for students who were at the point of incoherence, vomiting, and unconsciousness.  So I wouldnt be surprised if the next scene has a paramedic or is in an emergency room.

Well...Hmm.  It's amazing just how much can be conveyed without any dialogue and those last two panels sent chills up my spine.

Prediction for this week: Faye wakes up, shrugs off Marten's concerns, possibly even snapping at him. She paints Dora in a negative light and goes to look for another job aka goes to the nearest dive. During the week, Faye drinks some more and possibly decks someone. Faye either ends up arrested or in hospital to pump her stomach.

Meanwhile everyone remains confused about Faye because they continue that QC tradition of maintaining absolutely serious communication.

Is there any narrative universe in which trailing-off beeps in a hospital setting doesn't mean death?

Holy. Shit. This comic.

I sure hope those beeps fading to black are just Faye losing consciousness for an extended period of time.

The beeping death is Marten after taking that punch.

I'm just hoping that signifies her losing consciousness.  A death may have an extended BEEEEEEEEEP before fading to black.  At least, that what my head is telling me to stay slightly hopeful.

Damn, this is depressing...


At what point does a person consuming mass quantities of alcohol require medical attention?
So I wouldnt be surprised if the next scene has a paramedic or is in an emergency room.

Also, Damn Im good.

Considering the title is "Close to Home", which suggests there's some autobiographical element to it, and the fact that Jeph isn't dead, I'm going to guess that they are.
