Meanwhile, I wonder if that is an official NASA hoodie and sweatpants? I'm sort of thinking that Emily (like Raven) is perfect for recruitment to the pop culture version of NASA that has various think-tank non-specific idea factories scattered around the country to make mad ideas happen! I also think that Emily on the Moon has a ring to it!

I'd totally buy a NASA worm hoodie.

I notice that there is a black top under Emily’s sweatshirt. I wonder if she also is wearing one of these uniforms and is about to strip off her sweatsuit to reveal it?

Yeah, but the guy who started that list is really far behind in updating. Guy's just lazy or something.

I didn't know such a thing existed.  Kind of a subtle codpiece.
Right. Sorry, sometimes I forget myself on the tangential knowledge front°. I know about them because my older brother was in theater throughout highschool.

° "I have approximate knowledge of many things." or  "I don't know everything. I know a little bit about a great many things."

Dale knows how to press Marigold's buttons.
And it would seem that Dora has been around both of them lonv enough to get the reference.

Well damn, Dora. Take it easy.

Also, I sure wish I had known about dance belts when I was wrestling. Although, I don't know how restrictive they are so maybe they wouldn't have been viable anyway.

Yeah, Dora is in a bad mood, isn't she? I wonder what set this off? Has she finally reached the end of her tether with the randomness of her professional life or is she having personal problems? Or maybe she wants a little spontaneity and passion in her life too?

Anyway, I don't think anyone can honestly say that they were surprised by how Marigold reacted to Dale's super-suit. If there is anything we can be sure about is that those two absolutely love the other's body! I'm wondering how long Marigold will try to bargain with Dora to have Dale for a few hours?

To be fair, Dora didn't ask Emily to design a new uniform for the shop. This is something that is going to be distracting for the rest of the day, like if Dale has to go home and get changed. She's running a business, not a fashion design studio.

Or like the movie X-Men costumes, mostly identical but with different coloured details to differentiate between them. Dale's skull is white, Dora's is gold, Emily's is purple and the like!

The wiki's Strip by Strip page is a valuable resource for finding old strips.
I tried that first, but they aren't full transcripts. For instance, there's more to strip #1 than just "Pintsize, I'm home."
In fact those aren't transcripts at all, just brief strip descriptions. Not very searchable.

So thank you for doing the heavy lifting.  8-)

A few years back Jeph commissioned a full set of transcripts for his own use and sounded vaguely positive toward suggestions that he publish it. He might listen to a polite request.

I love this, and an Anime reference I get for a change.  I knew Marigold would get involved with this, and I was anticipating a similar reaction.  In my version, she leaps over the counter and ravishes him on the spot.

Don't get too excited. There's a $500 fine for any instances of ravishing.
I'd forgotten that Dora had a blonde incarnation at one point.

That was the era when any expression that wasn't a smile seemed to be that frowny face.

So, did anyone hear loud cries of "Hey, it's Hannelore!" in their neck of the woods?

"Just so charming"

Y'know, in-universe I'm glad Tilly and Station are happy together and  like each other. Out-of-universe I'm glad for non-binary rep.

When I read Station's dialogue in the fourth panel, I just went "Them?" à la Arrested Development's running gag of "Her?"

Yayy, Tilly.  :laugh:

It´s good to see them again and to see they´re allright. I liked them a lot and never understood the aversions many of the forumites here felt against them.
Tilly and Station are a wonderful couple. I hope he has something in store (literally), which allows them some physical contact as well.

Given that Jeph always liked Tilly it was inevitable that we'd see them again after a while.

However, I admit that this particular wrinkle was completely out of left field. That said, we know that Station is anthroposexual (my term for AIs who are attracted to humans) and, in a lot of ways, Tilly's personality is very similar to Hannelore's with high levels of anxiety and hyperactivity and an overwhelming drive to help (although manifest in very different ways). They are not dissimilar physical body types either. So, maybe it was inevitable that he would be attracted to them.

Here's a thought that occurred to me after I saw this strip on Patreon and noted the number of people wondering about the physical end of this relationship: Maybe, for them, it is entirely fulfilling enough to be with a mind that shares their goals and values them intensely on a personal level? Could they even be asexual? Of course, it's equally possible that they have had the brain implant that Hannelore didn't want and Tilly and Station are having hot, sweaty virtual sex every night; it's unlikely that Jeph will ever tell us unless there is some kind of joke there.

FWIW, though, I can see lots of sweet stuff happening. Things like Tilly lying in their bed and Station starts playing romantic music over the compartment's intercom, playing with the life support settings to add her favourite scent to the air and other things that are the unembodied AI's equivalent of hugging them all night.

Finally, about Station's panel 4 punchline: It's odd but, sometimes, characters in this strip become audience surrogates and I suddenly realise that Dr Ellicott-Chatham is this forum right now! :laugh:


EDIT
Removed a sentence that isn't correct and that I'm worried will otherwise derail the discussion of my points about how the Stilly ship probably works.

Eh?  Hanners is tall and willowy.  Tilly, while not as buxom as Marigold, is still pretty much a classic short-stack.  Look no further than panel #1 of the current strip.

Yeah, their hair color and natural skin tone is similar. Body type not so much.

This strip is cute, I wasn't a fan of Tilly's introduction arc but it's nice to see them happy now that the "refuses to hear a No" bit is a thing of the past.

Something I forgot to mention in my previous post: I am starting to become seriously certain that my suggestion for the current theme of QC is right: "The Lives and Loves of the Synthetic." We've got Bubbles and Faye, Roko's friendships, professional identity crisis and dysphoria-like issues with her new chassis and now we have a non-embodied god-tier AI in a relationship with a human (and, seemingly, neither of them needing a physical aspect to this).

This is why I think it's inevitable that Roko is going to end up in a relationship with Clinton or Elliott - Because this just seems to be the way Jeph is taking the strip right now. "They're people too, just a lot more plastic and metal."

This strip is cute, I wasn't a fan of Tilly's introduction arc but it's nice to see them happy now that the "refuses to hear a No" bit is a thing of the past.

Actually, from what Station says in panel 2 today, being unable to hear the word 'no' is one of the things he finds attractive about Tilly. Takes all sorts to make a fictional world, it seems!

now we have a non-embodied god-tier AI in a relationship with a human woman

Without wanting to sound nit-picky, if Tilly is NB as suggested by their preferred pronouns then they most likely aren't a woman (while I've seen people use both to describe themselves, it's rare enough that one shouldn't assume any other qualifiers in conjunction with NB).

Disembodied AI manifesting as a hologram in a relationship with a human?



(For those who don't know, those are Tharan Cedrax and Holiday from the MMO Star wars the Old Republic and Tilly/Station immediately made me think of them)

Thanks. Now I learned the etymology of our "Vakka kantensa valitsee..." A more or less literal German-to-Finnish translation, with identical use and meaning.

You're right, we should be careful to avoid assumptions.

I admit I don't know what to call a non-binary person when the only answer they've given has been about pronouns.

Tilly & Station is neat fun, but honestly I'm more interested by Hanners' progress in this strip. Not just the wicked tan, but she just looks so...comfortable. I can't quite place it, just something about her posture/body language...she looks more at home in her own skin than I remember.

Really looking forward to her reuniting with the main story to see how she fits in now.
