Just what is Pintsize's deal?

He's just a pervert but with more metal than most
He's a sort of troll who likes freaking out people by pretending to be transgressive
He's a weird kind of abstract archetype that Jeph created of the whole concept of an AI having any sexuality at all
He is actually one of the world's greatest behavioural psychologists trying to help Marten and Faye with a carefully-planned series of fake actions
He has impulse control problems, does stupid things on a whim and doesn't think about possible consequences
At first it was just curiosity and a one-off practical joke but it's become a bit of a habit he's never bothered to shake
He actually thinks that this is tremendeously funny and doesn't get everyone's reaction
Other reason (in-universe)
Other reason (real world)

A long 24 hours? This is Questionable Content!

Be prepared for the slowest strip tease ever!

IMO, Jeph could get away with cutting away from Faye and Bubbles to someone else for a few days. Then come back on Friday to Bubbles walking out of Faye's room wearing hastily-modified ordinary clothes that, even with strategic seam cuts only barely fit her.

That said, yeah, if she hasn't taken it off in a while then the release points might need a little elbow grease, lube and someone attacking the bolts from an advantageous leverage angle! :-D

Okay this would be schmaltzy as hell but hear me out:

Bubbles takes off her armour and finds a old, folded up picture of herself and her squad under one of the panels.  They'd always been with her, she just had to open back up to see it.

Normally I'd hate on a twist like that, but I'm not gonna lie, I'd find it pretty satisfying here.

That *would* be sweet!

On a separate subject...
Am I just noticing Bubbles' eye-line is all wrong?
It seemed glaring yesterday, and in panel one today it's just as bad.
The last panel shows the tilt etc of Bubbles' head to be looking at the person she is speaking to... and it's nothing like that in the first panel.

I don't remember her staring over people's heads when talking to them before...?
(Or maybe I just haven't noticed...?)

The thing is, in a very real way, Bubbles has already taken her armour off. We've seen it a lot in the last hundred strips or so. We see it in how she is at ease around her friends, trusts and even forgives after being hurt; every step has been a bit of plating coming off. It's been a hard journey for her but, at this stage, taking off her physical armour only symbolises something that has happened to her anyway in fact.

+1 insightful. I was going to say the same. I like Bubbles BTW. My kind of people.

I mean, would you want the seven foot combat ready AI have a nice smile or one hell of a scary-ass game face doing the talking with people?

Regarding the comic, this is Bubbles beginning to take those first steps to her personal recovery. This is her stepping out from the role of the soldier, the follower and taking down the walls she's built up since she's lost her squad. This is Bubbles realising she doesn't need the armour anymore, that she isn't a monster in humanoid form.

I'd never expected to see the words "seven foot combat AI" and "taking down the walls around her" mentioned together in quite that context  ...


eeeee.. The moment we've been waiting for for months. This is going to be a long 24 hours to wait for the next page.

I inhaled sharply at that last panel.

And now my eyes are distinctly wet.

This is the first time a comic strip has made me gasp and made my jaw drop. I'm unreasonably excited for this -- and not for all the crude reasons many people seem to be. :P

In retrospect, I think all of us knew this moment was coming at some point, so I really don't know why it came as such a shock. But it did, and in a very heartwarming way.

How interesting would it be if they pull a Peridot, where Bubbles isn't just wearing armor, but she's actually considerably smaller without it? Like, possibly smaller than Faye? Androids after all come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

I speculated months ago that Bubbles needs assistance to remove her armor. Like the assistance of somebody with a power wrench. I doubt removing it or donning it is anywhere near as trivial as changing clothes - more like taking the body panels off of a car.

Hi Chip!

Just FYI...

There's a function on the forum that can give actual buttons to unhide spoilers...

(click to show/hide)

All you need to do is enclose the text you want to hide with the command
spoiler (in [ ] brackets) TEXTTEXTTEXT and end with  /spoiler (in [ ] brackets)

OR

Type your spoiler up... highlight the text,  and then press the icon below the Font Size drop-down which looks like a screen with a 'x' on it

Cheers!

((((O.O)))) so excited to see what she looks like under her armor since it was noted that there were abbs under that exterior.

That aside, it's interesting that she's asked Faye to help her take it off. This has two possible explanations in my mind:
  • It's a complicated bit of kit and really needs someone to help the wearer (preferably equipped with a socket wrench);
  • This isn't something Bubbles wants to do alone.
I have to say that I think that it's the latter. It is in many ways an intimate act and she wants to share it with Faye as an act of absolute trust.

That said, yeah, if she hasn't taken it off in a while then the release points might need a little elbow grease, lube and someone attacking the bolts from an advantageous leverage angle! :-D

Personally I'd say both as it being combat armor and being military grade secretie stuff(and preventing access to the AI in case of say capture.), removing it herself would have to be extremely difficult or she would need some else help her to do it for her. Either way she wouldn't of asked anyone other than Faye to help her do it <3

 
Okay this would be schmaltzy as hell but hear me out:

Bubbles takes off her armour and finds a old, folded up picture of herself and her squad under one of the panels.  They'd always been with her, she just had to open back up to see it.

Normally I'd hate on a twist like that, but I'm not gonna lie, I'd find it pretty satisfying here.

photo would be cool but I kinda half expect/hope some kind of insignia like tattoo on her actual body in the same way soldiers get a tattoo to represent their squad.

This might answer a question as to how much a part of her chassis is Bubbles' armor.  I think it makes more sense for her to keep the current chassis she has since something heavy duty would be beneficial for the business she wants to start with Faye, but maybe her chassis can still do all that and it's just a matter of plating

If this strip was done by David Willis I imagine something would be available on slipshine.  That may or may not be a bad thing depending on who you are. :wink:

Hm. Well, maybe, sort of, I guess. But in the modern military if you need help getting into or out of your gear you ask one of your squadmates, who are your equals. So it's not a master/servant relationship, which is not a place I ever want to see Faye & Bubbles go no matter how intense their relationship gets.

Ok Bubbles is cute as all hell, but I have to admit I'm now a bit concerned about where the relationship is going.  I have a bad feeling Bubbles is on the way to getting hurt.

The price of never getting hurt is exorbitant.

A few things occur to me, looking at Bubbles' face in the last panel.

1) She's not blushing, something she's quite capable of. That eliminates certain possibilities.

2) Her eyebrows, to me, suggest that she's uncertain how Faye is going to react, and that reaction is important to her.

3) I don't think she's smiling, but there's the potential of a smile there. She's hopeful of a positive reaction - more than hopeful, I'd guess, but still not quite certain.

Jeph has really come a long way in depicting complex emotional states.

I wondered just how long before this  moment came along.  It's going to be interesting  seeing where this  goes from here.  The fact that Bubbles is ready and willing to finally remove her armor in anyone elses presence is a huge step for her.

Can one of the archive masters point me to the strip where Bubbles angrily insisted that she was going to stay in her armor?

Not sure if this is the one you're thinking of?

I have a feeling there was another.
Wow, didn't realize the massive improvement in art from just two years ago until I looked at this.

Look, I know we're not supposed to ship the characters. I get that. But Bubbles blushes--when she's touching Faye, asking Faye to remove her armor...I'd love it if someone could link back to the times Bubbles blushed--a lot of those times were around Faye.

I'm not saying they're lovers. But I'm saying, Bubbles has some type of feelings there. Whether or not Faye reciprocates is another matter. It's actually less clear to me how Faye feels than how Bubbles feels. It seems to me that Bubbles has gotten butterflies around Faye a handful of times. That look in the second to last panel...

I'm not sure either and have the feeling there was another. Something with teeth-gritting repetition.

I think that the reasons Bubbles has been getting flustered is that she is unaccustomed to leaving herself so emotionally vulnerable.

I don't think that it has anything to do with some kind of blooming romantic relationship.

Fair enough, and I know many people will insist this point to the end.

Of course.  That was just the first thing that came to mind. :P 

Then again, Bubbles can give off a Brienne of Tarth vibe to me at times.

Agreed although sometimes I imagine her having a voice like R Dorothy Wayneright.

"You're a louse, Faye Whitaker"

Then what does that make Pintsize?

Pintsize would be the giant robot of course. Big P. Seems appropriate....

Despite getting many opportunities from Dora, Faye has never shown sexual interest in women. Bubbles has not demonstrated sexual attraction to anyone. Until and unless we get evidence otherwise, pairing Faye and Bubbles is the bad kind of shipping.

May be useful for some things, but Bubbles won't be asking you to help her off with her armour.
