Well, the time has come to throw down your marker and know on whose side you are in the great debate: Who is best suited to represent QC-verse Northampton in Congress? I've tried to summarise the major positive of every character in the poll (although some might see them as disadvantages).

As for me? After a long period of thoughtful consideration, I selected Dora for Congress. She's sufficiently hard-headed and dedicated to doing the right thing, even if it costs her personally, that I think that she'd do a good job resisting pressures and making choices based on values rather than political pragmatism. She'd possibly also take out a few of the worst incumbents with that sword, making her the first member of Congress to kill someone in a duel of honour since Rep William J Graves in 1838! :evil:

What about this week in the strip? I'm sensing that Brun will awaken and that Elliott will take his heart in his hands and take decisive action over his attraction to her. I suspect that Brun will enjoy the outcome, whether or not Elliott does!

And as in US elections it's first past the poll no matter how big a minority of the vote they get. At least it doesn't go through an easily bribed  / corrupted college that votes for you .....  :-P

With some reluctance I voted for Bubbles.  She's the best person for the job, but she's been through so much misery that sending her to Congress would be worse than sending her back to the battlefield.  She deserves better.

I voted Bubbles as well. Knowledgeable, careful and honest. Her military background would insulate her from some sorts of attacks, and her size would make her formidable in debate. If she ever needed to mount a filibuster, she wouldn't need bathroom breaks (just an innocuous cord to keep herself charged). Most of all, she has strong empathy. She'd make a terrific legislator, although she'd probably hate having to do all the fundraising politics necessitates.

She's the Congresswoman Northampton deserves but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt her. Because she can take it. Because she's not our legislator. She's a violent guardian, a watchful persecutor. A Corpse Witch.

Is Jeph saying that Hannelore and Brun may end up as room-mates? Or is he lampshading that Brun is The Secret Bakery's alt-Hanners? Either way would fit in with today's strip.

Meanwhile, I do think that Brun really, really wants to know where this conversation is going. When someone is that understanding of her mindset and interests then there has to be a pay-off at the end! Or at the very least a lease on an optical lattice clock.

I really love the dawning OMG she understands me expression on Brun's face.

I strongly feel that this is the real direction of Brun's initial character arc. Although she has a friend in Renee, Brun has mostly been very socially isolated, mostly because she has a very difficult time 'getting' people. She has evidently dealt with this simply by never leaving her mental safe-zone of a tiny circle of friends and casual working associates; it has never occurred to her before that she could meet someone who seems so similar to her in the manner that Hannelore seems to.

The events of the fire and afterwards have forced Brun to expand her circle and get to know new people. I think that Jeph is planning to write her learning, slowly (and possibly painfully), to deal with an expanded circle and to have a social life. This will doubtless include some missteps and at least some of her new social connections will crash and burn dramatically. I suspect that's why we have both Clinton and Elliott interested in getting to know her better: So Jeph can write at least one unsuccessful date into Brun's story as part of her personal growth and learning to have the courage to take a risk on people.

Just an additional note: I think that both Brun and Hanners are over-estimating their similarities and I suspect that this will have consequences at a later date.

Another similarity between Hanners and Brun is the Floof. But Hanners has it all over Brun in the smiling department.

My impression is that Brun was a character Jeph improvised into being as a foil for Clinton, but then got interested enough in her to need a reason to paste her into the day-to-day cast. So we're starting to see connections formed with other characters. (Note that despite all her recent appearances, Brun still hasn't made it onto the Cast page.)

Two guys I worked with in grad school are currently working at a company that makes atomic clocks. One of them came back while I was still in grad school and gave a lecture about his work (though it only contained information approved by the company lawyers). Me, I'm working on quantum computers, and at a university so they don't care (as much) about trade secrets. :-P

The forumites have been discussing their similarities, but I don't think that Brun and Hanners are over-estimating their similarities at all. They have just really hit it off.

Obviously they both like to keep their homes clean and tidy, but I would almost guarantee that Hanners wouldn't make the mistake of extrapolating that to thinking that this means that Brun has OCD. As popular as that line of thinking may be among non-sufferers.

Who are THEY, anyway?
Sometimes referred to as "the powers that shouldn't be", "the true oligarchy", and/or "the Milner group". 'They' outrank the Builderberg group and happen to own 85% -> 95% of the world's wealth. Generally speaking, 'they' are noble families who are mostly all related to one another by blood. 'They' believe themselves to be superior to all others , and deserving of all others' subserviance (whether by divine right or genetics).

I think that today's strip proves that Elliott is both an animé addict (especially magical girl shows) and really is totally smitten with Brun. That said, in its own way, the 'friendship fairies' panel is ultra-cute. I can actually see Hannelore wearing that costume for Halloween!

Also: Well done for standing up to Renee. As he basically said, she isn't the boss of him as to what his inner eye wants to see!

Just an additional note: I think that both Brun and Hanners are over-estimating their similarities and I suspect that this will have consequences at a later date.

That's my suspicion as well.  I don't get the impression Brun has OCD.

Nah, she doesn't "smell" like OCD to me, either. She's just ... Brun.

Of course, 'we of the doubt-sickness' can make friends with non-OCD people, too.

If panel four isn't begging to be posted into a QC Captions thread, then I don't know what is.

I'm debating between panel 4 and panel 6.

Jeph has already put the panel up as a separate image. I'll bet that it will end up as a t-shirt before long!

It's difficult to say if Elliot's fantasies are risqué since anime is inherently sexy.
