WCDT 2907-2911 (2nd - 6th March 2015)
« on: 01 Mar 2015, 06:44 »

Another month has began and, I would say, a little bit more clarity of where we stand with respect to many characters. However, as always, we must ask: Where from here?

The more I think about it, the more I think that Jeph is definitely setting us up for Faye's experiences at the support group. Will Sven be there? I'd say 'no' as he has never struck me as a substance abuser (sex addict, on the other hand, would be plausible). However, I do think that someone she knows will be there, although it may not be a primary character. I suppose it could be Tai if that throw away comment to Marten about 'cutting down on my pot intake' was more seriously than it at first seemed.

There are alternatives, of course. We could go back to the Library to catch up with Claire and Marten. We could visit The Secret Bakery and see how Jimeronica is doing. Or we could go to CoD to see how the shop's dynamic is doing with Faye removed from the equation.

I think it would be more likely to see Steve there. We haven't seen much of him in a while. He was at the lakehouse party... and Marten dropped in after the one-night stand... but we don't really know what's going on in his life.

I think we'll definitely see Faye at the support group, alternating with another arc -- my guess is Clinton and Emily because the weirdness would balance the seriousness.

Nat's been written out of the strip, according to this

Further left field: Angus.  Turns out he was lying about the auditions, and all his trips to the city were for drug- and booze-filled binges.  He was just incredibly good at hiding his problems from Faye, and too proud/stubborn to ask for help (and she never picked up on his hints, when he invited her to go with him).  Turns out their last conversation together also sent him spiraling out of control, and now that he's hit rock bottom he's at last decided he needs to get help.  He doesn't even remember posting the ad about the chickens.

Yeah, I know, terrible idea.  That's why I voted for Sven.

There could be enough weirdness in the group to balance the seriousness, though I'm not sure Jeph would play it that way (I'd add, though, that there are plenty of ways to find/see the humor in that situation without being hurtful about it).

Speaking of which, I think if we see someone Faye recognizes, it's not likely to be a member of the main cast. Either someone we haven't heard from in a while (like Ellen, for instance*) or the Bros.

*Not that Ellen has any canonical substance abuse issues... just using her as an example, especially since a few of the others are either dead(-ish) like Nat and Sara, or would be enough of a stretch to strain credulity (like Padma or Angus -- basically, "We're taking you off the bus and sending you to therapy").

Edit: semi-ninja'd by Gladstone re: Angus. That's about the only plausible way I could see him re-entering the strip (and it'd certainly put his anger at Faye's alcohol use in a much different light).

Further edit: and ninja'd by Cesium. Lemme hit "post" again and see who else beats me to what else. :)

I would like to see Sven, I enjoy him as a character. And, up until his most recent appearance, I'd enjoyed his character growth arc. I'm not interested in seeing him backtrack on character growth and pursue Faye as an entitled douchbro.

I would also be interested in seeing how Dora is doing and how things are at COD.

catching up with May would be interesting too.

Is it just me, or is Hanners much more of a literal cartoon than she used to be? I mean, even the way she is drawn compared to the other characters? I miss when she had more substance to her.

I think the cartoonish characterization may be reflective of Jeph's state of mind, since it does seem across-the-board. I'm not too sure about what manner that relation holds, though.

idk, Hanners and Faye are both in the strip, yet Faye doesn't look as cartoony as Hanners does. I wouldn't necessarily mind a cartoony look across the board, but it just seems to be Hanners, and occasionally Claire.

I vote no familiar faces at support group, both because it's kind of expected, and because there's been so much talk about it here on the forums. We may be a while before we even get to the meeting; I'm guessing today is Monday rather than Wednesday.

Of late the strip has been the Faye, Hanners, Marten and Claire Show (with Dora cameos). Wouldn't hurt to check in on somebody else. Or, we could see how COD is when regulars come in and there's no Faye.

*facepalm* Marten, don't tell her to flip tables she will do it. 

Anyways I'm glad Faye has joined a support group.  Hopefully she will also find a creative outlet for her issues as well (sculpting).  Hopefully we see more positive developments in the comic after several WTF and Holy Shit moments.

Marten knows Faye well enough to know that she was just looking for an excuse not to go. Fortunately, that familiarity also gifts him with the knowledge needed to reason around her objections in a way she can't dispute! Of course, as Jeph points out in the title of the strip, this would be a peaceful dissention on her part!

Y'now, I've got the feeling that Faye is drinking coffee so she doesn't have the need to drink alcohol. I wonder how long it will be before she's so wired that she's standing on the ceiling?

I think that out of all characters so far, Steve would be a likely candidate to meet in the support group. If I'm not mistaken, the last time we saw Steve, he was drinking VERY heavily.

Or, for the sake of drama, it could be Sven, not because of substance abuse, but maybe to pick up scarred, vulnerable ladies and make with the sexy times.

I hope even more so it's not Sven, because I can't stand Sven and have the feeling that at this low an ebb, Faye might end up sleeping with him.

I think it'd be a tad cliche to include someone familiar in the support group, but if it were, it would be someone unexpected. Someone with unknown problems in the past who has already overcome them but is still in the support group anyway. Have we seen Jim or Wil drink?

But, as I said, I hope not.. I'm kind of hoping Jeff will keep the support group members anonymous visually (shades! silhouettes!) and focus on Faye's experience in the support group. Faye, sitting in listening to another member talk and getting hit with self-reflection and identification..  Faye telling us of her emotional struggles with Angus leaving and maybe confronting her own crushed ambitions which lead to that in the mean time.

Maybe the familiar face won't be a fellow group member but the moderator? Maybe a familiar face to us, if not necessarily Faye.

Claire's mother maybe? Working in a group like that sounds right for her pushy but generally nice personality. If you spent your working life helping people with serious denial issues, you probably would tend to push the boundaries of your children's lives too, if you thought they were repressing or denying something.

Maybe the support group is where we meet Claire's dad.

Nope.

Faye's dad.

I want to make a joke about that being mind-blowing, but uh... yeah, that might be a bit inappropriate

So then if I get what you're saying, Faye didn't survive her brush with death, and this is how she figures out she's actually dead?  :psyduck:

On a slightly more serious note, the idea of Claire's mom being the moderator of the group makes sense. It would also give some backstory to Claire's history with group therapy: perhaps it was her mom's idea for her to start going to it.

Could even be that Clairemom went into her own spiral after Clairedad cheated on her, recovered, and then decided to run the group to help people out?

Guest appearances make sense. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see Billie and Ruthless from Dumbing of Age in the group...

Definitely feel like it's going to be Claire's mom.

This support group thing will likely be a chance for Jeph to introduce new characters, but from a literary standpoint, it would be neater to tie the characters together in ways they aren't actually aware of. Like the head of Faye's support group to be the mother of her roommate's  girlfriend.

I think if it were Steve, or anyone Faye recognized, she wouldn't get as much out of the group as she might otherwise

Y'now, I've got the feeling that Faye is drinking coffee so she doesn't have the need to drink alcohol. I wonder how long it will be before she's so wired that she's standing on the ceiling?

That's a myth. I've been there, my sis has been there, my mom and dad have been there. It just doesn't happen.

On "Familiar Faces running the group", I can't help but remember Meena's fiancé. You know, literal mr. Perfect?
