Comic's already up and nobody else seems to have done a WCDT thread yet, so here's my first attempt at one. No, I had no idea what to ask for a poll question, so I punted.

(If anyone's wondering, every one of the possible answers is the punchline to a shaggy-dog story.)

Thought about starting a thread, but couldn’t think of a poll.

I don’t know who Marigold is talking about, but I probably saw her at Comic Fest last week.

I doubt that any of this week's strips are going to be numbered - It's Guest Comic Week after all!

There is nothing about Dale and Marigold's relationship that isn't cute. They're both so bashful about themselves, their desires and how those desires affect the other. I particularly find Dale's reluctance to imply that he's disrespecting Marigold quite adorable.

We know that Marigold is into the lead character of Magical Love Gentleman. What does everyone else think Dale is into? Given his questions to Bubbles about being a mecha, I'm thinking that it's one of the ladies from Evangelon, Gundam Wing or Macross. I wouldn't be surprised because plug suits do seem to be very, very... er... form fitting.

That subject aside, I do find this guest strip nicely in-character for both of them. Yes, Dale is very nervous around Marigold to the point where I think it frustrates her sometimes. On the other hand, Marigold has this utterly wild side that hasn't ever been allowed out yet except in private around Dale. I wonder what would happen if she let it out more often and in other contexts!

So, Hatsune Miku, huh? Kinda playing against type, there.

(click to show/hide)

Now, there is absolutely nothing wrong with cosplay or sexy roleplay of a character with a different body type than one's own. A big part of cosplay and roleplay for many people is getting out of your own head and playing with the idea of being somebody else. But I do find it fascinating to see what kinds of characters people chose to play. Why Hatsune? She's rail-thin and has no character to speak of. I'd love to know what it is that makes Marigold look at her and think "that's someone sexy I'd want to dress up as in bed". Is it a body type she finds sexy? A type she thinks Dale would find sexy? Is it because Hatsune's lack of a defined character lets Marigold project whatever traits she wants onto her? I'd love to be able to ask her.

Of course, she's not just a game character - she's originally a vocaloid voicebank.  I wonder if Jeph has been using her in his music.

It's always so fun to see how other artists interpret QC characters, and Marigold and Dale are always endlessly entertaining.


Still., I think Danielle Corsetto set the unquestionable high bar for QC guest comics not long ago...

It's kind of in-character for this to happen, isn't it? I mean, Momo has complained about Dale and Marigold's 'enthusiastic' sex life and we know that the two of them disappeared pretty much for the day after they 'discovered' each other.

I still want to know what the costumes were, though!

I doubt that any of this week's strips are going to be numbered - It's Guest Comic Week after all!

Good point! Should I edit the topic title?

Although technically, they ARE still numbered because the link for today's strip (for example) is http://questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=3757

Looking at these past comics, it's clear why Marigold and Faye never became friends. And why Marigold and mostly everyone but Hanners aren't friends.

I identify with Marigold the most. Jeez. People are so MEAN to her.

Totally makes sense she wouldn't want to befriend the girl who started dating her crush. Ever.

I think her not having many friends has a lot to do with her being a terrible introvert. She's also terribly insecure. The two are related. She'd rather sit in her apartment playing video games, or working on her Dad's website, or watching anime, than go out and be with people. She considers the whole crew - yes, even Faye - to be her "friends", but she hates crowds, so she doesn't spend time with anyone but Dale now that Hannelore is away. I can sympathize... I'm much the same. I have to force myself to get out and interact with people.

I never got the impression that Faye and Marigold were friends. If they are, they sure have a strange "friendship." From what I can see her friends are Dale (duh), Momo, May, Hanners, and maybe Emily.

What's happening is that Bubbles has gone from seeing everyone "normally" to seeing them "as anime".

Note how Faye's face changes from when she was at the workbench to her kawaii-ish view in the third panel?

(EDIT: Look at her nose in panel one, then in panel three... and five/six...)

Miku is a pretty popular choice for young girls to dress up as, so there's probably only a couple thousand pictures to sift through...  :-\

That's why I put "friends" in quotes. I don't think she actually dislikes any of them - even Faye. She's not that type of person. And she has been made to feel welcome in their "inner circle". But she doesn't spend time with anyone but those select few.

Now, there is absolutely nothing wrong with cosplay or sexy roleplay of a character with a different body type than one's own. A big part of cosplay and roleplay for many people is getting out of your own head and playing with the idea of being somebody else. But I do find it fascinating to see what kinds of characters people chose to play. Why Hatsune? She's rail-thin and has no character to speak of. I'd love to know what it is that makes Marigold look at her and think "that's someone sexy I'd want to dress up as in bed". Is it a body type she finds sexy? A type she thinks Dale would find sexy? Is it because Hatsune's lack of a defined character lets Marigold project whatever traits she wants onto her? I'd love to be able to ask her.
Hmmm......
It could be a case of tabula rosa. That's the generally accepted reason as to why so many teen and tween girls were all "I'm Bella" in regards to the Twilight books.

If Pintsize’s chassis truly looks that way the military should’ve commissioned more.  A horde of those would be too disturbing to fight

I'm sort of wondering if Pintsize really is responsible for Bubbles' altered perceptions. He's never shown any interest in having more humanoid-seeming features (beyond opposable thumbs - he's always been big on having thumbs), I would have thought that any altered perceptions filter created by him would make Faye sparkle whenever she poses just right or make the AI automatically edit out humans clothing or something similar!

Either way, it's good that Pintsize is where he is because he's going to need Faye's help to be de-cubed and restored to something resembling his normal shape!

Seeing Pintsize's face like that is...unsettling.
Pintsize reminds me of those little yellow aliens from Excel Saga.

I was just wondering...
Would Pintsize tampering with Bubbles' sensory input count as violation of the "sanctity of the mind"?

More like the sanctity of the body.

It's sort of like a 'prankster' dropping an LSD or Ecstasy tab in someone's drink at a party. Very disturbing (and potentially quite harmful) for the victim but motivated more by ignorance, stupidity and a perverse sense of humour rather than the directed malice that is required for brainwashing and other types of mental abuse.

That's why I put "friends" in quotes. I don't think she actually dislikes any of them - even Faye. She's not that type of person. And she has been made to feel welcome in their "inner circle". But she doesn't spend time with anyone but those select few.

Meh. I wouldn't say friends, with or without quotes. They were pretty mean to her at first, then super patronizing. Like when Dora was like "come on, all you need is a short skirt." or when Dora was like "I've been too busy HAVING A BOYFRIEND" pointedly. As someone with no romantic history, I've had people like that who really liked going for my jugular.

It sucks, but Marigold kind of brings out the shittiness in the other characters. You never knew they were so mean. I sometimes feel the same way. I'm an indicator for assholery. "Nice" people quickly show their true colors around me. Faye and Dora aren't bad people, per se, but they hadn't reached the maturity level required to treat Marigold decently.

And here's the really shitty part--Angus didn't even really like Marigold, and made fun of her too. When he called her a loser shut in or something. That was awful.

Now, with all that said, I think Marigold has a TON of growing and maturing to do herself, and still has many bad habits that I hope dissipate in time. Sure, she has Dale, but she still has a LOT of work to do on herself. I'm not letting her off the hook entirely. She is Jeph's favorite character, so I hope that he comes to to focus on her in time and these necessary changes happen. The time where she started to follow Sam home was pretty strange to me. At least Marigold realized it.

Panel 2 indicates that Bubbles doesn't know a socket wrench from an open-end wrench.
