Here's why I think that Claire and Brun are going to end up best friends: They seem to be the only people who really get the other's sense of humour to the point where the jokes are that funny! Actually, I'm pretty much convinced that Brun's joke was her attempt at apologising to Claire for disturbing her.

I loved Clinton's "We'll be good". I wonder how many times he's said that to a fuming Claire through his childhood and adolescence?

Hey, Claire! Having a hard time studying with all this noise and distractions? There's a place that's great for studying. A lot of people use it to study too and it's pretty quite there. I'm not sure if you've heard of it. It's call ... a library.

The problem is that Smif College's library isn't exactly the most study-friendly of places. If Tai hasn't arranged a house party for that day, just the fact that Claire has so many friends and acquaintances there almost guarantees getting side-tracked.

'Labradoodle' is the unofficial but commonly-used name for a Labrador/Standard Poodle cross. It's hardly a well-known name or breed, I'll grant you.

Hm. Here I thought labradoodles were pretty common. Maybe because I pay attention to dogs and their people. But it doesn’t seem at all like an obscure joke to me.

There are also goldendoodles, Bernedoodles, and a host of other poodle mixes.

I was made familiar with the Labradoodle breed by the sitcom 'Scrubs'. Cox used it as shorthand to describe J.D. as nervous and prone to widdling on the carpet. Also, a more personal connection to this comic, K.B. Spangler AKA Otter, who has done guest comics for QC and the webcomic A Girl and Her Fed, took care of her parent's labradoodle whom she called Filthspigot while they were abroad a number of years back.

MHA = "My Hero Academia"; or in the original Japanese (kind of!), the same show is "Boku no Hero Academia" = BNHA.  This is, as stated already, a superhero growth and development story, which is currently running.  The recent chapters of the manga (which is way ahead of the anime) shows signs that the story which started with clear steps towards an ending is instead going to be stretched out interminably...  This is beginning to spoil it for me, as I like my stories to have an ending.

I used the initials originally thinking that the person I was replying to would understand, at least if my identification was correct (it wasn't, but was close).

"Metal Head Alchemist" was a joke (the somewhat similar initials FMA are commonly used for the anime "Fullmetal Achemist")

Being a cross between different varieties of dog (Labrador and Poodle, of course), they don't breed "true", which makes some people trying to make a profit that way very disappointed.  Portmanteau names for dogs we would once have called mongrels have become popular as a way of legitimising such crosses so that more can be charged for them.  A friend of mine has a "CockerPoo" which they paid too much for, and I have a "Sprollie" which was sold perfectly reasonably by the farmer who didn't want his son to leave his working Springer Spaniel and Collie in together that night...

I have had 2 cats that were mean. One had been found at my dad's work yard, so dad being himself meant we got a cat. We suspected abuse. He got over it, in time.

The other was a hag to everyone but me. No idea what her deal was-but damn did I love her.

My current cats, however, are snuggly purrboxes of joy.

Poor Elliot. He means well.

Not to put too fine a point on it, purebred-dog breeders can go [bleeep] themselves. The whole idea of inbreeding animals in order to perpetuate deformities and health problems for the purpose of the vanity of the owners is disgusting.

My childhood dog was an accidental crossbreed of Beagle and Pekingese.  The breeders were going to kill the puppies, but their kids intervened, so the puppies were given away for free.

We decided to call her a Pickle (from Peagle).

Not to mention perpetuating the notion that it's somehow better to spend thousands of dollars on an arbitrarily defined specialty animal rather than helping any of the endless numbers of abandoned animals in desperate need of a home.

My last dog was chasing my cousin's car down the road, stopped, and came into our front yard as my cousin continued on to her job. The dog stayed with us for eight years, including one move, before THAT trip to the vet. Memory and dog books make me think she was part Manchester terrier, part beagle and, as I say fondly in reminiscence, "100 percent junkyard." A finer, fiercer, more loving dog you'll never see.
Our last cat was the last survivor of a litter of five dropped by a stray shortly before we moved. Mama Cat and two kittens disappeared while we were moving; of the three remaining, two did ... not adapt well to country life. No. 5, the runt, was with us for 18 years, promoted from barn cat to house cat (it was her house, though she was agreeable to us being there as long as we kept the Tender Vittles coming, permitted her to unravel Mom's crocheting as it happened, and left room for her on the bed) though she was not averse to grocery-shopping for mice in the hayfield. She was a ... well, there's such a label as American Domestic Shorthair, but she was your basic cat. One thing I like about cats is they manage to remain cats despite human efforts to breed them into different shapes.

We rescued our two moggies from shelters. We had originally planned to adopt an inseparable, bonded pair of kitties. But, as we all know, you don't choose cats, cats choose you. It took a few days for them to get used to each other, but now they are like brothers, each with his own distinct personality. One is the food thief and fearless explorer of yards and high places, the other is the slayer of flies and demander of home comforts and pats.

[/quote]

That'd be fair if they were at Marten and Claires flat or if they were in a library or some other location designed for study and/or quiet but they're not, Claire has decided to study in a business setting not set up for or designed for studying yet is trying to dictate how and what people should be doing, for her benefit

Hell Elliot just baked some bread and is looking for feedback which is a completely legit and appropriate course of action but now is feeling bad because of Claire

Claire has many options open to her in regards to where she can study yet shes choosing inappropriate locations and getting snarky at people for which she has no right to except for some vague notion that "finals" are so gosh darned important that everybody should stop what they're doing and cater to her whims

Stress isn't an excuse to act like a jerk.  Stress can explain her behavior but it doesn't mean its ok.  And as I said, this incident alone wouldn't be so bad, but when you combine it with all her previous (IMO) obnoxious behavior, it creates a pattern.

Besides which there is a difference between: "I don't like this made up character, which exists in a comic I read for enjoyment" and "I think anyone who ever acts out in real life because of stress is a terrible person".

And if you love Claire and hate, say, Emily (who I enjoy) thats totally legit.  You can have different tastes than me.  I also don't like Elliot much, but many people love him.  I'm not wrong, they aren't wrong, because its all personal opinion.

Welcome, newly registered person!

Thank you! Why am I a nurr?

We've all been nurrs; it doesn't last long.

(I've no idea what it stands for - it was in place before my time.)

I read once that it was "Nobody's Uncle Or Relative", not that that makes much more sense.

At work the truck I drive is an Isuzu NRR. I pronounce it "nurr".

Officially frowned upon these days, but the remedy for that when I was but a young DSL was a spoonful of syrup of ipecac.

That's not really how puns work, Brun...

Yeah, if there's a pun in there, I'm not sure what it's supposed to be.

'Labradoodle' is the unofficial but commonly-used name for a Labrador/Standard Poodle cross. It's hardly a well-known name or breed, I'll grant you.

Das also war des Pudels Kern...


To go full Brun I'd have to do some kind of fist pun, or maybe boxing facts. But i'm drawing a blank. I guess I got to throw the towel on that one.
