So May was just minding her business and Sven just started talking to her? *lol*
Some guys are lime like that. He's still got stuff to work on.

Sven obviously does not run Unix/Linux. The 'whoami' command would instantly resolve his identity crisis.

I don't think Sven started talking to her, I think that he just started talking to himself cause he was so in his head he didn't realize someone else was leaning against the wall there.

Is May sniffing a salt shaker? That resembles an older pineapple style glass salt shaker to me. Unscrew the top and fill with whatever.

Yeah, I think that realising that his younger sister is growing up has made Sven realise that perhaps the time has come for him to do the same. The celebrity lifestyle is cool and all but he's long ago realised that it's pretty empty. Maybe the time has come to move on from his crushes and his fancy-free lifestyle and try to do the adult thing himself?

Meanwhile, it is confirmed that the convenience store where May works is adjacent to The Horrible Revelation.

So May was just minding her business and Sven just started talking to her? *lol*

He's having an existential crisis. It's easier to do that with someone else to listen, even a grumpy android girl.

Is May just hanging out, eating a bolt?

I think that's one of those USB 'hip flask' intoxicant executable file storage devices.

She's basically taking a smoke break.

What she's holding is a USB drive that, when inserted, installs and auto-runs an auto-deleting executable file that gives a short-lived 'high' analogous to human intoxicants. We've seen Roko use this sort of consumable to simulate being drunk after a shift; I suspect that the one May is using here simulates the relaxing effect of nicotine or THC.

I've got a feeling that we're into a 'Sven gets plain-spoken advice via insults from a relative stranger' arc. This has happened with other characters in the past (most notably Clinton and Faye), so I'm thinking that this signals that Jeph has plans for a Sven character arc.

Meanwhile, I'm pretty certain that Jeph has forgotten that May, Momo and Sven have interacted before but we'll see. Whilst it's plausible that both might have forgotten the interaction, I find it hard to believe that May would have forgotten the human on whom her uptight friend has a crush! Maybe we'll see May pointing him in Momo's direction at some point?

Or it could just be a vape pen.  We've seen AIs enjoy the scent of teas and the like, why would a vape be any different?

Sven and May in one panel is actually my two least favourite people in the comic interacting. Amazing that I didn't come out in hives, and actually enjoyed the interaction. I think the eneMay of my Svenemay is my friend... May.

Looking at today's comic and I don't know, I just find it...bleh. I don't mind Sven, I can tolerate May. I can't quite explain what it is, but I really feel like the comic has lost some impact the last few months. I'm not talking about the idea that EVERYTHING-MUST-BE-DRAMA, but it just feels like we keep treading old ground, like "Character A has existential crisis. Character B makes sarcastic comment. Character A clarifies. Character B makes smartass comment that is a workaround for Character A to express what they actually feel." Or something to that effect.

Or maybe this is just the effect of being a long time reader of a long run comic.

I think I see where Sven is coming from: He doesn't really trust himself to not make the same mistakes again. He's too easily distracted by sexual attraction, jumping to the New Hot Babe, even if he really gets on well with his current partner. Whilst May is right that it's possible for people to have a sexual relationship without it 'turning into a car crash', I'm not sure if it's possible for Sven.

I suppose this is why I think that any long-term relationship that Sven will get into may be asexual. Sex has only ever complicated matters for him and has never really ended well. So, I could see him focussing on emotional attachment and trying to keep the physical stuff to one side as much as he could. This is one of the reasons why I can see him ending up with Hannelore at some point: Both of them wanting an attachment but not wanting (Sven) or being able to (Hannelore) have any but the most limited sexual aspect to it.

I have to disagree there, Tova. It's not telling us much that's new, at least in terms of Sven's behaviour. However, it's really the first time we've seen Sven acknowledge just how totally his commitment-free lifestyle has poisoned his ability to sustain relationships. It will be interesting to see how this affects his decision-making going forwards.

He didn't say that his commitment-free lifestyle has poisoned his ability to sustain relationships. That was you.

All he said was that he didn't feel free to just go out and engage in casual sex anymore. Something he already said way back in #793.

If today's comic advances the story beyond #793, it's not by much.

P.S. Maybe it was meant to be like that little clip that they insert into the 'PREVIOUSLY ON QUESTIONABLE CONTENT' trailer at the start of the episode where they remind you of what happened way back in season one in case you forgot/weren't watching back then.

P.P.S. #793 isn't even post-Faye, is it? Here's the post-Faye version.
I mean, it's like reading a new comic about Marten realising that he really needs to take control of his life. Yeah, we know.

One thing that makes that feel like old news: Although it has been years of our time, it might have just been a few weeks within the comic. That time difference makes it somewhat hard to judge progress, and might contribute to "treading on old ground". So much we've seen actually happened at the same time, rather than in sequence. And JJ may just be tieing up some loose/old ends.


How much time actually has passed in the storyline? Three years, maybe?

I wonder if Faye knows she's traumatized Sven for life?

Moreover, do the mob of women wanting to bang Sven (I assume its still a thing) know, and are they gonna come after her?

"There's a mob of pissed off women outside Union Robotics. What did you DO Faye?" Bubbles asked.

"Why do you assume it's ME?"

*long look*

"Okay, it was probably me..."

Actually I was noticing May's fixation on boobs (first Marigold, now Faye) and starting to wonder if maybe she likes girls.

As far as I know, Bubbles is the only AI character whom we've ever seen entering any kind of romantic relationship. Although Pintsize has done ... things .... they never seem relationship-oriented.  And although we've seen Momo crushing on Sven she never did anything to let him know about it, much less act on it.

Speaking of which, if May remembers when she met Sven before, she'll remember that Momo thought he was hot - and might very well tell him so.  Which could turn out to result in embarrassment, amusement, recrimination, gratitude, outrage, hijinks, guilt, laughter, disappointment, or lasting happiness.  Or, you know, some combination of the above.  It's complicated.

I can assure you an obsession with boobs is in no way a hindrance to also being unto dick.

Pintsize doesn't really count IMHO - He's bound to the Law of Funny, as far as romance is concerned (see the Roko incident). Momo having the hots for Sven probably was some kind of test how people would react to a Human/AI romantic relationship, and Faye/Bubbles was actually doing it {pun intended}.

Speaking of which, if May remembers when she met Sven before, she'll remember that Momo thought he was hot - and might very well tell him so.  Which could turn out to result in embarrassment, amusement, recrimination, gratitude, outrage, hijinks, guilt, laughter, disappointment, or lasting happiness.  Or, you know, some combination of the above.  It's complicated.

May has enough sense in her robo-noggin to know that such would likely end her friendship with Momo.

I'm sure people have definitely been hollering about Faye's T-shirt, and Jeph absolutely definitely didn't put that T-shirt very prominently into the comic specifically so that he would have some more merch to continue plugging a month after it appeared. That would never happen.

As far as I know, Bubbles is the only AI character whom we've ever seen entering any kind of romantic relationship. Although Pintsize has done ... things .... they never seem relationship-oriented.

Actually, especially in the earlier phases of the comic, Pintsize occasionally dated other AIs. However, his only interest in human sexuality seems to be motivated by a desire to mock and annoy. Similarly, May's only interest in human sexuality seems to be based on humourous disbelief about what we do for fun. She's only ever shown physical interest in Bubbles.

AFAIK, the only AIs whom we've seen show romantic interest in humans are Bubbles, Momo, Roko and Station.

Never has been.  Bisexuality is a real thing.  And May did at least seem to agree about Sven being hot (after getting into a one-sided obscenity contest with him when he wasn't even playing that game)  - right before May zapped her hard enough to need a reboot.

May might be lacking in academic ability, but she's got street and survival smarts galore.   If robot prison is anything like human prison, May's had something analogous to jailkid* sex, straight and otherwise, more than once.
