Okay, thought I'd do a real Opinion Poll here. Now, I know that this is an awfully subjective and, arguably, divisive question. However, I'm not really interested in an objective framework about what defines 'cute'. So many people have so many different ideas that there is little chance of anyone agreeing on one anyway.

Just answer the question: You, personally: Which of the QC ladies best fits your own personal definition of 'cute'?

This is actually a harder question to answer for me than I initially thought when I had the idea for the poll. I'm torn between Hanners (who has this whole waif-like innocence and purity) and Emily (whose personality, although alarming at times, screams 'nice' on a very fundamental level). I guess I could toss a coin but, in the end, I chose Emily, mostly because literally everything she says makes me smile.

So, as to the strip, I'm expecting more of Bubbles and Faye at the apartment this week. I suspect that Jeph has chosen to use the plot device of the Reindeer's Revenge on Pintsize to get her to the apartment for some kind of major character interaction with Marten and Claire (characters that we don't see much of these days and with whom we've seen Bubbles interact least out of all the main characters).

Will this lead to anything substantive? Well, that remains to be seen but the preview art Jeph put on Twitter certainly suggests that something will happen to make Claire say 'Squee!' Not that this is particularly hard, romantic that she is! :wink:

For me, it's the puns that actually make her cuteness[1] decrease.  Granted she *has* had a few good ones, but most are really painful.  I'd say all in all for me, out of only named characters, and excluding AIs, I'd have to say Hanners.  Damn, I cant multitask.

[1]How does even quantify cuteness anyhow?  And for units, do we use "kawaii"?

Oh, but puns must be painful. Punishment after all. I suppose if that's too much, then perhaps I could suggest quietly chanting Ohm Sweet Ohm, but resistance is sometimes futile.

Especially when they're not very punny.

They can even be punishing.

COMIC

QC is starting to get a bit meta.

P.S. I just noticed that the comic number range in the thread title is a bit out. 3341 to 3345?

This isn't the first time that Jeph has put the words of the forum into a character's mouth. I'm not sure if it is a form of meta satire or just confirmation that we aren't suffering from a mass hallucination!

Meanwhile, Claire = shipper is confirmed. That said, one should be wary of fanmade crossover ships, especially if there is a ssignificant time-period difference. I do find myself wondering how much time Claire spends on reading shipper fics though? Is that her secret addiction? :wink:

Bubbles' batteries are low? Both walking back to the rink? Maybe Lilac will choose this moment to take revenge, when Bubbles is vulnerable.

Somehow I doubt Bubbles' batteries are really low; besides having room to fit a lot of military-class batteries in a chassis that size, she strikes me as the sort who always recharges before there's any chance of them running low. I think that was probably a polite way to excuse herself to go home before it gets too late.

Meanwhile, Claire = shipper is confirmed. That said, one should be wary of fanmade crossover ships, especially if there is a ssignificant time-period difference.

Is there a significant time-period difference between Sherlock Holmes and Mr. Darcy? I believe they were both in the 19th Century, but perhaps at different ends of it. Sherlock flourished in the 1880s and '90s. What period was Mr. Darcy in?

Claire specifically called him 'Sherlock', which is the 21st Century AU recently made by Steven Moffat for BBC TV. Most people would refer to the original 19th Century character as 'Holmes'.

IIRC, Pride and Prejudice is set about 50 years before the original 19th Century Holmes (the latter set in the 1870s, the former traditionally considered to be set between 1810 and 1820).

"Pride and Prejudice" is supposed to be set in 1811-12, and Mr. Darcy's in his late 20s-30 or thereabouts, so it would be "Death in Venice" creepy to ship him with Sherlock Holmes, who was canonically born in 1854. The events described in "A Study in Scarlet" take place around 1881 (Watson recounts how he was invalided home "many months" after being wounded at the Battle of Maiwand, which was fought on 27 July 1880). And on the subject of contemporary adaptations, apparently...

Not knowingly but if Jeph read one of my comments and decided to run with it then he's got my blessing.

That said, the realistic interpretation is that Jeph was always planning something like this towards one end or another (FWIW, Faye and Bubbles feeling a certain pressure towards a relationship but deciding not to do so because they prefer platonic friendship is an entirely valid outcome). I just picked up the signals he put in the plot and characterisation, no more.

"Wuthering Pipes"
Very good! That would be a Holmes/Heathcliff ship, I guess. It would be even more creepy than a Darcy/Holmes ship, since Heathcliff is 30-40 years old in 1801.

There is a suburb of Sydney named "Bronte". Sadly, the inhabitants don't wear 19th century fashions or talk in Northern English accents, but since it was actually named after a place in Italy, I guess that's OK.

Edit: Initially, I muddled up Mr. Rochester and Heathcliff. You could say that I Eyred.  :claireface:

  • I'm a blood donor: I play rugby.

Question: Is it established that Marten and Claire are living together now, or it is just that they spend much of their free time at Marten and Faye's apartment?

It seems odd to me that Claire promised Bubbles to brew a better cup of tea next time she visits. I reckon that she was with Marten during Pintsize's shenanigans, and so had time to (poorly) brew tea, but there may not be a next time if she doesn't spend much of her time at the apartment.

And somehow I want Claire to have moved with Marten...

BTW, Faye and Bubbles feeling no pressure towards any relationship whatsoever, and also remaining close-knit friends would also be an entirely valid outcome.

I've decided that I might as well plant my flag and declare my new status as "friendshipper."

The hanzi on the ship's bow read 運誼二號 (yúnyíérháo or roughly "ooin-ee-are-how"*). An accurate translation would be Transport Friendship II, but presumably they wanted to economise on white paint, and it wouldn't be as funny.

For me, it's the puns that actually make her cuteness[1] decrease.  Granted she *has* had a few good ones, but most are really painful.  I'd say all in all for me, out of only named characters, and excluding AIs, I'd have to say Hanners.  Damn, I cant multitask.

Well, it is a matter of taste, and "umami" is a flavor type. So, I'd say 'yes' to using 'kawaii' as the unit name.

  • Putting the 'mental' into judgemental

Whelp, the superlative is a bit weird:
The comparative and superlative of the male/female form of the adjective "dunkel" (dark) would be:

                         "dunkel/dunkele (m/f)" (dark) -> "dunkler(e)" (darker) -> "dunkelst(e)" (darkest)

while the neuter form is:                                           
                         
                         "dunkeles (Bräu)" (dark brew) -> "dunkleres Bräu (darker brew)" -> "dunkelstes (Bräu) (darkest brew)"

German is fun!

"Wormfather Skull-birthday Dark Brew" is something that should definitely exist (Yes, I've said above that "dark brew" is "dunkeles Bräu", but that sounds stupid, so it's called "Dunkelbräu", or "Dunkelbrau"). And a stone-cask ("stein") is mandatory.



The runes glow because of isotope decay, obviously (Means: "You should maybe consider screaming & running away"). If not, then it's Cherenkov-radiation resulting from a divergence in the local Calabi-Yau manifold, which indicates that an eldritch horror from a parallel dimension will emerge momentarily and devour your brain (Means: "Don't bother wiz ze screaming and running avay")
