Party Pooped! What Happens?

Hannelore has an anxiety attack over how to comfort Bubbles and Bubbles ends up comforting her;
Someone somehow gets drunk at a zero-alcohol party (*coughPintsizecough*) and Bubbles finds her true calling as a bouncer;
It turns out that Bubbles has a wonderful singing voice and records with Deathmole;
Momo tries to start a relationship with Bubbles; the outcome is... awkward;
The party is interrupted by an unexpected revelation (poster's choice);
Nothing really happens except Faye constantly waiting for the other shoe to drop;
Bubbles breaks down and tells her darkest secret - that her head is not her own;
When the time has come to go home, Faye tries to talk Marten into letting her 'keep' Bubbles.

WCDT 3056-3060 (5-9 Oct 2015)
« on: 04 Oct 2015, 10:20 »

Okay, a bit of a rerun from the last thread that I started but, now the party is underway, I think that we can have another debate on this one.

Personally, I'm expecting Bubbles to be generally polite but reserved and not really do anything startling until the next day at work when she unexpectedly hugs Faye and thanks her. Long-term, I'm also expecting Faye to get Hannelore's unexpected and, perhaps, over-enthusiastic assistance in helping Bubbles regain her life a bit.

OMG I SO WANT BUBBLES TO BE THE LEAD SINGER FOR DEATHMOLE.

(and from what I understand about their oeuvre, a beautiful voice is not required...)

When you're an ex-military robot, "death metal" means something much more than a musical genre.

Music is but a frivolous extravagance in which rhyme and rhythm distract from the drudgery that is truth.

That feels like something Bubbles would say.

I'm thinking: Bubbles has buttons, and they're going to get pushed, because... well... that's why they're there.  That having been said, who in this cast would NOT help Bubbles?  Even Pintsize would try to help.  But before that can happen, the breakdown has to happen.

Interesting party. It seems that everyone is there. Even May who hasn´t been part of the social circle of Faye and Marty by now. I wonder if Tai and Dora will show up.

It seems to me that Bubbles is getting more and more annoyed with every panel. I wonder if this will lead to anything spectacular or if she will silently give up and leave the party early. I´m hoping for the former, of cause.

It's bad that nobody is letting her tell her own story or just interact. Being treated like a curiosity or an oddity has few upsides.

I'm thinking that I agree with  you on the annoyed bit (the mecha thing should not have been asked at all much less by both Anime nuts - a piloted mechanical construct is not the same as an AI run body and both of them would understand it if only on a "TV Tropes" level.  I can almost understand Marygold not understanding but Dale? )

If I were in Bubbles shoes at this point I'd find Faye and say something like "I've played your game child. I'll see you at work on Monday." and then walk out silently.

I respect Hannelore the most so far. Her honesty in the face of her fear is the most decent thing, so far, at this party. God bless her.

This is the party when Bubbles learns an important truth about her co-worker: Faye is not an anomaly; everyone in her circle are equally odd. Some of them may also have odd sexual quirks although I'm willing to bet that May was trying to be complimentary. I also think that Bubbles knew what she was saying and was trying to brush it off with a façade of naivete.

Meanwhile, I strongly recommend to Bubbles that she download a copy of a fan-wiki for animé, if she's planning to interact with Marigold and Dale in any depth. :-D

Regarding her mood, she doesn't seem annoyed with Winslow or May. Curious about Winslow in a sort of 'What a strange little robot' way and confused a little about where May's going with this. She's annoyed with Dale because, I think, he and Marigold are just geeky enough to keep badgering her about things that they think apply to her because they saw it in an animé once. A sort of 'everything I learnt about combat robotics, I learnt from Macross' syndrome. Or Evangelon, based on Dale's t-shirt.

Yes, Bubbles is big, but surely not big enough for a human pilot. It seems uncharacteristically clueless for both Marigold and Dale.

And Bubbles is remembering why she doesn't like being around people that much. Though I am surprised that she wore her armor to the party if she bothered to put on lipstick. Well, maybe not so surprised. She may not have anything else to wear, or her inner chassis might not be suitable for walking around without some sort of covering. The armor might also be psychological armor as well. She hasn't seemed to be concerned about physical danger so far. Just being uncomfortable around other people. And she's getting the acid test with this group. I'm expecting some sort of outburst in the next few pages...

Would the pilot have to ride inside? Maybe they think Bubbles is a ROV like current combat drones.

Momo and May and Bubbles all in the same room at once. Yay!

Bubbles is being very tolerant of the petty annoyances. Good thing, because I wouldn't like to see her angry.

The ignorance of Dale, Marigold, and Hannelore about AIs in combat suggests that it was a brief trial that did not go well.

Again, there seems to be a large degree of uncertainty in the AI creation process. You can't just whip up a few platoons of super soldiers.

I´m not sure if Marty really is the best choice to talk to Bubbles. His fear will make him act even more arkward than usual. Maybe Claire will take over for him. She´s far more intellectual and I think she´s better in overlooking Bubbles appearance and have a real conversation with her.
She may even be truly interested in her.

It was the night when Marten realised that no-one he knows actually thinks it's possible that anyone could really be that nice! :lol: Seriously, I think that Faye was just trying to be encouraging about how good Marten is at putting people at ease. It's just that everything Faye says sounds like a snark.

What Bubbles needs to learn is that people aren't overcompensating for fear. It's just that humans (and AIs, as their intelligence seems to be designed to mimic that of humans) have this tendency to fill empty air with stupid and obvious remarks, one of which is "My, you're tall!" However, in the case of May, she just seems to have never developed a 'tact' subroutine so she just blurts out whatever comes into her mind. Besides, isn't complimenting Bubbles on her buns of laminated carbon-fibre armour plate a good thing? :wink:

She does look intimidating, which would be par for the course for a Combat AI, but once they get to know her they'll find she's an interesting individual and a pacifist.

It's going to be interesting to see what happens when Marten or one of the others actually talk to her rather than at her as they have been doing.

Maybe Claire and Marten both might be better than either. Claire might identify with someone who total strangers feel they have the right to ask intrusive questions about their anatomy, and remark thereon.

Or at least she might not make that gauche mistake.

Marten's just a really sweet guy. And the two are a matched pair.

I have been thinking about whether Claire might have a common frame of reference with Bubbles. She, too, after all, has had to deal with the fact that there is a significant difference between the person she really is and 'the chassis into which she was originally installed', to put it in Synthetic terms. The comparison is not even slightly exact but it is there.

Has it been established that Bubbles is really not at ease with her chassis?  And if not it doesn't seem very difficult to buy a new chassis.

A new chassis may not exactly be "Momo quality" but surely a Pintsize 1.0 or Winslow could be purchased on the cheap.

A more interesting conversation would be Claire and Penny trying to figure out what makes them different.
