I know Sven wasn't the greatest ever or anything but like it's his sister's engagement celebration. He kind of has a right to be there.

Even probably doesn't even know about the engagement, I'd bet.

Wouldn't surprise me, and definitely wouldn't be surprised if Sven was the catalyst for whatever fiasco happens over the next few days.

It is unreasonable to expect your ex to stop going to places they always went to before just because you broke up. It is, however, perfectly reasonable to ask them to not interact with you while you are both there.

She made it clear she doesn't want to talk to you, go away, Sven.

Daaaaaaaaaang I like Sven's current look.

It's entirely possible Sven doesn't know about the engagement yet because it happened a couple hours ago and Dora's been busy shopping for rings and hanging out with her friends and she was gonna call Sven and her parents tonight/tomorrow.  I can even see Dora waiting until after the celebration to tell Sven specifically to avoid the awkwardness of having to tell either Faye or Sven they can't come or having to deal with them at the same time when Faye is already going to be struggling just from being at the bar.  Didn't work, but she tried.

Wow! How long has it been since we last saw Sven? I think it was when he and Dora promised each other that they'd at least try to have something resembling a healthy adult relationship and they sort of also admitted that they wanted to not have this simmering suspicion and resentment between them.

I suppose I can't blame Faye for her reaction. There was nothing about her relationship with Sven that wasn't a screw up that both of them did literally all they could to make more hurtful. That said, a long time has passed and there's been an awful lot of water under the bridge. Maybe the time has come to just close the book and get back to being 'two people who know each other because of having Dora in common'.

Does Sven know about Dora and Tai. I'd say 'yes' because there's a sort of thing as a 'phone and it therefore would have taken Dora maybe a minute to tell him whilst she and Tai were haggling with the budget ring vendor.

To everyone who thought the drama would be Faye struggling to stay on the wagon here comes the twist.

I honestly don't think it's going to go that way. Sven doesn't have that sort of power over Faye. He's an annoying jerk sometimes but that fiasco way back when isn't a major thing in Faye's emotional life anymore. Actually, it wouldn't surprise me if this segment of the arc will be Faye realising that Sven is an annoying jerk but really that's all he is and he isn't in any way crushing her heart anymore; indeed he hasn't for a very long time.

Whether that is also the case for Sven I have no idea. However, I strongly suspect that an ironic part of him thinks that Faye rejecting him an then getting into a relationship with a female combat android probably 'figures'. If anything, I wonder if he's going to instead pester her about Hannelore's whereabouts and status.

I think Sven is nothing more than a nuisance for Faye. Amidst being in a bar and the ensuing temptation, plus the burrito incident, Sven is just "the icing on the cake". Faye's fed up with him, and I think she'll just ignore him and get back to the others and say "yo dora, your jerk of a brother is around"

Expecting him to not talk to her if she doesn't want to: yes, very reasonable
Wanting him gone when it's his sister's engagement party: not reasonable at all, especially since Faye and Sven were basically in an okay place already anyway

Yeah. It's like okay his question about Bubbles is a little rude but I feel like most of the other characters get WAY more leeway for being total assholes than Sven does for behavior that is not as severe. Also, she could have just said hi and walked away or even just ignored him. Could you imagine, running into a person you dated but weren't official with for what a few months? and they fold their arms like a child shout no, no , no, and then say they're going into the bathroom, you have x minutes to disappear?

The whole Sven situation probably would be different, if he actually were there for the engagement party.
This issues present - IMHO - are as follows:
  • The temptation to drink, since they are at a bar
  • The burrito horror
  • The engagement itself has a certain.... weirdness? to it.
  • Sven, being all himself, and Faye being "oh no, not that guy, not now!"

Faye probably just reacted in a way without thinking whether it's a good way to react. I don't think Sven is more than a nuisance here, the only thing that may happen is Faye just leaving.

On the one hand, Faye's history with Sven certainly does warrant her making a quick exit stage left. She's been hurt by him and in several ways, Sven will never change.

But on the other hand;
- the bar they're in is a public place. And unless Faye was in the restroom for a long time, Sven was probably there before her. So she really can't dictate where he should be or shouldn't be.
- Sven is Dora's brother, and if he knows that she and Tai got engaged, Dora probably told him immediately, if not by calling around or by phone, hence why Sven wasn't sitting with them. If he does know, he's got just as much of a right to be there to celebrate as Faye does. And if he doesn't know, well that's just awkward.
- Faye is giving Sven way too much power. She had moved on, she had a loving relationship with Angus and she's now in a loving relationship with Bubbles. She's moved on, or at Faye thought she had.

I agree with all of this except that Sven will never change. He's already had development through out the comic. Faye has a right not to want to be friends with him sure but she cant except to never run into him when she's friends with his sister and they live in the same town.

A point that only our timeline people will care about: this would seem to verify that we're only a few years off from current time in this universe. That is, it's probably sometime around the last five-six years in the  QCverse.

This is because Spotify didn't become ubiquitous in the US until a few years ago.

Needs to be punchier. "My girlfriend left me - for my truck."

Well, that changed quickly.  Glad to see it, though. :D

Yes, negativity gets tiresome, but we're just 5 strips away from the 4000th so we're all expecting something dramatic. 

I'm hoping Hannelore will walk through the door.

I'm not surprised that Sven got Faye talking. As I posted yesterday, in the end, Faye got over it a long time ago and once she was past her initial reflex reaction, I had no doubt that she'd be okay with talking to him. It helps that he's been making an effort to be a better guy of late (something with which I believe that Hannelore had a significant off-screen role).

Faye has remembered one thing she doesn't like about him though: The fact that he's a success because of his ability to make people treat random rubbish that he threw together in a morning as art!

"My ex-girlfriend is dating a robot" would likely be his next hit.

It's interesting that Sven called Bubbles 'the big red lady'. Just a reminder that he doesn't have a prejudiced bone in his body: He hasn't reacted to Bubbles' species at all.

I'm kinda hoping Faye gets Sven to wait here for a sec, then goes and asks Dora if she wants her brother to join the party, since the assbutt's already in the bar, anyway.
