WCDT Strips 3011-3015 (27 - 31 July 2015)
« on: 26 Jul 2015, 07:15 »

In celebration of the marriage of Jeph's brother: Who do you think is likely to be the next marriage in Questionable Content?

Anyway, as I've said before, I think that we've seen the end of the "Faye's New Job" arc for the immediate future, although the Fight Club will certainly appear again and there will doubtless be consequences that we will see in the strip such as Faye having odd new robot 'friends' and maybe Marten getting worried about how secretive she's got recently (secretive behaviour being, as a rule, not a good thing for someone fighting addiction).

I'm going to go out on a limb here and make a prediction: The reason Claire was with Marten last week was because it was Marten's day off from the library and Claire is no longer an intern there. The new school semester has started and she's a student again. I'd like for some exploration of her, Clinton and Emily's studies and student lives. Maybe we can learn about the careers that Clinton and Emily are looking to get after graduation and maybe Claire may get more than a little stressed out with reports, essays and other coursework. It would, IMHO, be another angle from which to look at her character.

As already indicated, it might also mean that Claire has more free time (there are probably few lectures and class-based activities for a final-year MLS student). That might mean we get to look at Claire in general in some new environments as she will have time to spend with Marten and the rest of his circle.

Steve and Cosette have been together the longest, I think (although Penelope and Will might beat them), so if anybody's going to start thinking about a lifelong commitment they would be the logical couple.

Pintsize and Bubbles might elope. There may be interesting legal ramifications to this in the QCverse - the "traditional marriage" folks might have something to say about robot marriages. I doubt Jeph will go down that road, though.

Momo and May? Nobody sails that ship but me, and even I don't really expect it to happen.  :-P

Jeph has done a robot wedding in the past (I'll get the link in a minute). I so wanted to put Momo and May but I'm pretty certain that's the most unlikely outcome.

Edit: http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=1149 I'm slightly off that it only mentions a bachelor party but if you extrapolate from there it does imply weddings.

We're also forgetting how impulsive Veronica is.  Wouldn't be too much of a stretch for her and Jim to decide on marriage after only a few weeks/months together.

Other possible advantages:
  • Best man Marten;
  • The CoD girls as bridesmaids and Dora as Matron of Honour;
  • Endless accident-prone Cosette hijinx;
  • Claire bonding with other girls outside of her fairly narrow current circle and maybe ending up as part of the bridal party;
  • Jeph deliberately creating a cliffhanger about who catches the bouquet.

While I voted for The Unsinkable Ship, realistically I can see Jim and Veronica and Tai and Dora. Although Dora needs some character development where she stops keeping everyone at arms length first. After she gets that though I see no reason not to pull the trigger. It's not a couple I see ever breaking up, sends a progressive message and no chance of breaking the No Babies In QC rule.

Marten can't get married until the end.

Marigold and Dale and Clinton and Emily both way to early.

Steve and Cossette could actually happen, but they're not important enough characters for it to be a big deal. Maybe no ceremony/'while we were on a trip to vegas...'.

So you say, but as it stands now, it's 5 to 4 in favor of Veronica and Jim.

Do they have a ship name? VeroniJim? Jeronica? VeroJima? Jimonica? For the purpose of quick typing, of course.

Though I could see some drama on Doras part leading to her finally laying her demons to reast before Dora finally accepts Tai's proposal.

Another possibility: Tai and Dora get married before they really should, and the shit hits the fan.

That said, it'll really be Veronica and Jim rushing into things next.

Tai I think needs to grow up a bit before she gets married - and frankly, I think it won't be Dora.  Their relationship feels very flingy to me, only because they seem to be living in different worlds still.

This is Sven we're talking about. Like the title says, of course he has a man bun.

Also Hannelore's disgusted/creeped out face in the last panel is pretty great for Sven in general lately.

I honestly believe that he really doesn't understand how he comes off. He's never really had to rely on his interpersonal skills to be successful, so it'd make sense that he's a bit stunted in the verbal-filter department.

Not only did I not know whether that was Sven at first, I thought that was a woman at first.  I guess it's the "man bun"?  I remember when my hair was that short... could've sworn Sven's was lighter than that.

Jeph at least, from the commentary, does not seem inclined to forgive.

You know, I'm not sure if this matters, but I feel I should say "toxic presence" was a concept I was first introduced to... well... here.

It seems like Sven is going for the "starving artist" look. I for one think his repentance is genuine, but since he tends to connect his identity to the outside (his looks, his audience, his lovers) he might have thought that was the only way. Or he just decided it would be easier to go halfisies: 50% repentance, 50% man-bun.

Maybe he's finally found that rhyme for "philandering" and is now writing folk songs about the plump Georgia peaches and the man who dun' them wrong. Of course he had no reflection on whether the "sympathy sex" comment was really necessary with Hanners, since that's just the thing he'd do if there was any other girl  with whom he could have this conversation.

Sven Bianchi, ladies and gentlemen: The only man in QC to come across as a creepy letch when actually being nice and sincere. Being the more favoured child has its disadvantages. A total lack of social self-awareness, for example!

It's sad that he has decided that there is no point trying to mend fences with Dora but, I suppose, it's a sensible response, all things considered.

The news about Dora is bad. It's obvious to me that her estrangement from Faye is hurting her badly; as always, pride is getting in the way of taking needed action. I wonder if we're going to have a week looking into Dora's situation. Might this conversation inspire Hannelore to stage an intervention?

P.S.:
I wonder how long meeting to talk to Sven has been part of Hannelore's routine?

If she's tellng him all those news at this point, it can't be much of a routine I imagine. I quickly read over the first panel but I agree, the news on Dora sounds worrisome. It's a bit like the breakup, she also got more closed-off then (if I reacll correctly). We know she's one to linger on her regrets, and the ones that came with fireing Faye are definitely big ones.

How about Pizza Girl and an AU/QC universe Amazi-girl tying the knot?
Not sure Wil and Danny would be happy about that, but sure, why not.

It's just a matter of time before Danny ends up with Ethan anyway, by the looks of it.

Oof. I don't know what makes me wince more. Hannelore's expression in the last panel clearly indicating she hadn't even considered the possibility of Sven pretending to be contrite about Dora to coax her into sympathy sex until he bought it up, or the fact that Sven doesn't realise that guys pretending to be contrite to get sympathy sex is a behaviour that is the exception, not the norm. That isn't the sort of thing most guys feel they need to explicitly state.

I'm kind of pleased he thinks that he only has himself to blame for not Dora not wanting anything to do with him. It shows he actually realises that he has done enough bad things which is great. There are plenty of self-centred jerks around who never get to that stage.

I've always been in two minds about Dora's Svenectomy. Breaking off all relations with an immediate family member is never a good thing and the part of me who thinks my only brother is one of the most wonderful and awesome person on the planet is still horrified and wants them to reconcile. Yet part of me was glad when Dora decided she would as I felt Sven really needed something big to make him realise how badly he behaves sometimes.

And I was pretty angry that he not only decided to tell Faye he loved her when he knew she had a boyfriend, he also expected to get credit for being honest with her and expected it to 'work' because he was the 'nice guy'. You're not, Sven. You're really not. I was glad SOMEONE was punishing him for that.

I'm not sure if that is right or wrong, but it is what I feel.

I honestly wonder if Hannelore has a very special place in Sven's life. From early on, Jeph emphasised that Sven's runaway sex appeal has poisoned his relationships with almost every non-related woman that he's met, something that occasionally frustrates him to no end. However, in Hannelore, he has found a girl who, even if she finds him attractive, is psychologically incapable of acting upon it, at least at present. That's a relief for him because I think that he's on a strong rebound from Faye right now and I doubt he has the mental or emotional strength needed to even contemplate an intimate relationship with anyone.

I suspect that he really appreciates having a platonic female friend in his life and that is why he felt so free to tease Hannelore here (her reaction not being so much disgust as reacting to a friend making an off-colour joke).

Woa. Sven, creepy as ... (1) !!!

About the poll: HANNERS !!!! *enters berserker mode and swings fireaxe very dangerously*

An actually working AI is always only 30 years away, since the 1960s. And even IF artificial intelligence would ever exists, and even IF they manage to give computers feelings (how would that one work ?!?), I kinda doubt computers will ever marry. The biological motivation is lacking.

Fighting over who gets to be flower girl is the next shoal water for MV Doratai.
Doratai? Tora tora tora! Oh wait... That sank ships, didn't it?

I didn't recognise Sven at all until the third panel when the penny finally dropped. And I don't think that hairstyle does anything for him.
