WCDT Strips 3281 to 3285 (8-12 August 2016)
« on: 07 Aug 2016, 11:01 »

Okay, so I'm shooting in the dark for a topic here. However, I think that Brun's eventual job is going to be a significant aspect of how she interacts with the rest of the cast.

My vote goes for 'Delivery-person' although various other options also appeal. I think that what is necessary is something that gives a realistic cause for her to interact with other members of the cast in a non-contrived way. Having something like Dale's old delivery job gives plenty of reason for her to turn up literally anywhere in the QC world and start interacting with the cast on both a business and personal level. I guess I also like the idea of Brun zipping around Northampton on a scooter. :wink:

How would you handle this development? Do you have a better idea of how to secure Brun's place in the core cast?

I don't really see a delivery job working for someone like Brun who lives by her set routines. Doing Pizza deliveries means navigating to endless new addresses, and constant interactions with new strangers in new environments. Brun was so thrown by her sudden new habitations that she forgot something simple like taking a shower. I think making deliveries would be hellish for her, never being able to inhabit her comfort zone.

Theoretically, Brun's job at the Whale will eventually open back up. Meantime, she'll want another situation involving set routines, I'm thinking. Not sure what it would be, though. Now, if she were to become a US Mail carrier (as opposed to delivering pizzas), there's lots of routine in that; always going back to the same addresses, and less need to deal with humans. But those kinds of jobs tend to be hard to get, I think.

WRT integrating Brun into the main cast, I think the path is fairly clear. She'll encounter Clinton again (maybe at COD), and there'll be a conflict between Renee and Clinton (probably played for laughs). Perhaps Brun will eventually became a COD regular.

Well, a bow is certainly a good start, as well as an under-the-table-paying job.

Then again, I could see Brun working at The Secret Bakery. While Jim has said that there needs to be passion in baking, there is also a high degree of precision needed with the ingredients, making sure all the bread and other baked goods are consistent. The set routine and the recipes would be perfect for Brun. Now, if she could handle the god-awful hours, that could be a good step for her. (I dated a baker for a couple of months, free bread and stuff, but she was up when I was getting ready to go to sleep).

Anyway, Brun and Clinton could probably meet as she delivers a batch of muffins or the like to Coffee of Doom. And then, hilarity ensues.

Am I the only one who thinks Brun meeting Clinton again might not be such a big deal?  Yeah, Jeph is playing it up big with foreshadowing and suspense of all kinds. But really, aside from having shared a traumatic experience, and both being single, what do they have in common? Do we have any indication of attraction on either part? Any indication of what they would talk about together, or how their personalities are complementary?

What if she meets him again, she's happy to see him, he asks her out, and she can't be bothered?  Or vice versa?

I think there are a couple of things that point to his interest - giving her his phone number and then talking about her rather wistfully to his sister.  I have no doubt that he is interested in seeing more of her in a way we've not seen previously in his character.
We have less evidence of her interest though I would point to her staring at the number even into the shower as something that was unusual but slipping inside her routine defenses (if you'll excuse the expression). 

Jeph has laid a certain amount of groundwork that I think he'll at least show an attempt at a real relationship. Whether it is like Marten & Dora or Marten & Claire remains to be seen. Either way would be a good character building arc for both characters.

As usual, Jeph comes up with a natural, funny way to pull Brun into the main cast that isn't what anyone expected. Now I may have to go rewatch Kiki's Delivery Service.

Part of the point is that he doesn't ask her out. Instead they form a friendship organically, through familiarity and continuing contact. For Clinton, the whole dating business was so artificial that he never actually got to know Emily (other than as a virtual girlfriend-that-never-was). It would probably be much better for both Clinton and Brun if they didn't ever date.

The plot of Kiki's Delivery Service is about budding young witch Kiki striking out on her own. Perhaps it's time for Brun to strike out on her own.

I had totally forgotten that Renee worked at the Secret Bakery. Dang.
Unfortunately, this means that my previous rejoicing that we finally had a new QC character with a pre-existing, not-already-part-of-the-cast friend has to be retroactively canceled out.

It's clear that Brun requires little from this life to be truly happy. Day-old muffins and an animé-esque hair bow go a long way to reassuring her that all is right with the world!

This does open an interesting possible insight into Brun's inner world, though. Does she base all of her assumptions about the correct modes of behaviour, dress codes and the like on animé coming-of-age films? If so, this may lead to her having some pretty weird ideas about some careers and some people, especially if she's an affectionado of Miyazaki!

Maybe the point is that Jim (or maybe his ex-wife) are the bow-in-hair type. The bow has been kept in reserve just in case Sam decides to conform to a gender stereotype (possibly for the first time in her life).

I voted that Brun could be the Secret Bakery's alt Hannelore, but if she likes large bows she might consider getting a job at The Horrible Revelation.  Big bows were in during the Victorian Era. 

We're getting a little more insight into Brun, she's a Miyazaki fan.  I'm not sure if she would get along with Marigold or not since you never know with anime fans. 

Most definitely she is going to meet someone from Coffee of Doom, but it remains to be seen as to who.

People in general take up a lot of scial ques from the media they watch and read, especially what they watch and read as kids.

As an aspie, that might be why I preferred stuff with more realistic characters over the stuff with vapid-brain-dead-character-A interacts with vapid-brain-dead-character-B. Batman Beyond over Spongebob Squarepants. I can't think of any particularly stupid characters from books, but I was reading stuff like 'The Ear, The Eye, and The Arm' in 5th grade.

I also thought it would have been an archery bow which would have made Jim's comment about having a daughter more accurate.  That is the thing I would expect Sam to keep lying around in her dad's office.

It is entirely possible that Sam has one of those as well.  Though she might not be the sort of girl who generally goes for frills and such, Sam quite possibly would be drawn to some of the various Miyazaki heroines.  Given her current interests, though, San seems the most likely.

I'd guess that delivery for a pizza place is very different from delivery for a wholesale bakery or coffee place. Wholesale would be more about "deliver these boxes to that store at this time every day" and therefore better suited for a Brun-type personality.

I think we need to make a chart showing how all of the characters are now connected, because as soon as I saw this I had to figure out exactly how Clinton is now connected to Brun:  He is her friend's employer's girlfriend's son's girlfriend's brother.

Has Brun always been that short or is Elliot just very tall? Slouching, the other character (I forget her name, don't hit me) is taller.

Elliot probably pushes seven feet. I'm not sure if we've seen him standing next to Bubbles.

Pretty sure there was a question or it was discussed at some point, but are there two Renee's or is it just the one?

There are an infinite number of Renees, all arranged in a row. It is an array of Renees.

Doesn't Elliott bounce at the Horrible Revelation?  Gets off work there at 3 am, shows up at the bakery at 4:30...

Doesn't get much sleep, does he?  Maybe a good afternoon nap helps.

Probably explains both the yawn and the plaster on his nose.

Renee may not want to live in an animé but Elliot is clearly overjoyed at the prospect! I believe that, if nothing else, Brun can go through this day safe in the knowledge that she has made at least one geek happy; so happy that he has stars in his eyes! :wink:

Now... Has Elliott been in a fight or is that one of those 'nasal passage strips' that some people wear when exercising because it's supposed to increase the amount of oxygen you can inhale with every breath?

P.S.:
I do not believe in coincidences in Jeph's art. Open Mic night at Harry's is going to be significant somehow.
