What's your favorite Bubbles quote?

I will not leave a debt unpaid. I offer my left hand as collateral.
Let us consider that "plan C".
I could rip you apart, tear out your mind substrate, and crush it to dust in my hands. There is nothing you could do to stop me. I choose not to.
That is an... alarming endorsement.
I am a font of merriment and cheer
I have a houseplant, now. Arthur can vouch for my trustworthiness.
We have holes in our hearts. We can paper them over, and learn to live with them, but they are still there.
I am calling the police on this conversation.
If your love life requires close air support, something has gone very wrong.
It is true. I do not sparkle.
Betwixt my mighty glutes
Please do not taint the sanctity of Unicorn Grove.*
I am the Skull Master now!*
I have cast off so many burdens recently. It is time for one more to go.
When, in your experience, have I ever been magical?

In any case, totally a fan of this and hope that it is more than a casual hookup.

What about Momo though though?

That's when things will get messy at best.  I wonder if May is going to see that complication.

OT, but I messaged the admin here, warning him that shit was going to get weird, and the reply was something along the lines of "I don't know how to prepare for that".

May's advice to Sven is mostly good at this point in his life because sometimes you have to fuckin' *test*. get in the water, do the damned thing.

I don't feel bad for Momo, who still cares about an ancient lust-crush from a self-repressed person? Though full disclosure: I like Momo well enough, but I don't have much respect for how she treats others sometimes. So you know what maybe it would be nice to see her freak out a moment over something different.

Also to speak to people speculating about May's chassis, it bears pointing out that she has major body/self issues, and has since the beginning. It's different than some of the other characters, but you really can't do proper assessment on her without remembering that.

Hahahahaha. Iím soooo ok with this outcome! I knew this was gonna happen but I thought in a monthís worth of comics perhaps.

Hey, wouldnít it be cool if time does make this pair more involved with each other and Sven buys a better chassis? Dude is hella rich as far as Im concerned.  :-D Would be lovely to see May lose her Tsundere shit over that.

oh ha i didn't even notice the corner message

truth told i imagine that it *isn't* 'great', which is part of why one might be tempted to get.... uh, looking at the detritus in the comic, let's say creative. but also felt the need to remind that she risked everything to have a body she wanted, and failed, and now is stuck in this cheap thing that she hates. I imagine it colors any description of her physical self that she cares to give.

though i mean i might be projecting

Meh, she still has some growing up to do before she gets into a relationship, and its not like you can call "dibs" on a human being.

I started to argue with chason on the grounds that Momo has many of the hallmarks of maturity but then remembered how little life experience she has.

Also, Momo casually passes as a young teen.  Hopefully, Sven would be creeped-out at the very thought.

they really must've gone to town for the smartphone to display a 404.

Also, apart from looking rather young, Momo can be rather naive, which doesn't help her appearing to be more mature/grown up.

Okay, so they were hooking up; that answers that question.

Okay, I confess: I'm a Patreon member. I can assure you that no parts were visible and that May indeed doesn't have parts. It's sort of sweet what Sven apparently did in response to May writing 'Clown Boy' on his chest, maybe in an attempt to reassure her that she may have a body like a self-actuating Barbie doll but it is still a body and can be treated appropriately!

I admit that I'm puzzling over Sven's (I'm guessing) phone. Evie (Amanda's fiancee) told Faye that AIs can download pleasure emulators if they want them. Maybe he got them so that May could enjoy the experience as much as him. He may have overdone it somewhat, given the phone's clear disinclination to play any longer.

Most important it this: May is happy that it was weird and that is very in-character for her. She isn't in sex for sex's sake; she just wants to have bizarre personal experiences and see just how far she can push the boundaries of 'possible' for her. In this case, an oven mitt, hand-lotion, watermelons and nunchucks!. I don't want to try to guess what that might have led to!

That was quick.  And May's grinning like a skunk eating you-know-what.

It's not like every second counts, Sven.  Get the two of you cleaned up, dressed, and then head over to Union Robotics with May over your shoulder.  They no doubt have a larger library of cables and adapters than anyone has ever imagined, and if they don't have that particular one they can whip one up.  May's chassis may have a proprietary connector, but it's still a government contract item and common as Torx  screwdrivers.  Of course, you'll have to explain to Faye how you just happened to be there when May's batteries gave out . . .

Honestly, there's a lot of BDSM/kink overlap with AI characters, in terms of how one finds and experiences intimate pleasures with a 'nonstandard' or 'atypical' body.

At a guess, May's heat sinks are as defective as the rest of her chassis and her hull became dangerously hot, giving a completely different meaning to the old phrase "Smokin' hot woman".

They obviously had fun. Hopefully May's chassis was not too pinchy...

As for Momo, it's not like she made any kind of move on her feelings. She didn't even tried to see Sven more often or anything, for what we know. Blushing and stuttering the few times she saw Sven isn't enough to create any kind of obligation for Sven. So I still feel sad for her  (if she cares, which remains to be seen), but she somehow had it coming.

Or even better, respectfully wait until she decides to get up, then ask her respectfully if she wants to go to Union Robotics.

An it harm none, do what thou wilt.
Anything that increases the total happiness in the world is good.
They seem happy.

I had a very sheltered upbringing. This is way outside my personal comfort zone. But so what? It's their comfort zones that are relevant.

Bear in mind that as an intersex person with one of the more spectacular syndromes where you are born looking like one sex, but naturally change to look mostly like the other, I think more people would be squicked at the idea of physical intimacy with me than anything depicted here.

Well that's the hardest I've laughed at the comic in awhile.

I agree. To paraphrase May, "this is gonna be comedy gold!"  :-D

On the top left corner of the last panel, between Sven's head and the lube dispenser, is that a can of WD40?

...aaaand I can't see any clown nose. Maybe it's still... under Sven's censor banner?

I wasn't expecting this for at least 5 or so strips.

After yesterday's comic, I kind of expected something like that today. Not really, but I'm not all that surprised.

Dale when he comes home (If they went to his place I mean)


That said, not exactly thrilled with the outcome because...  Well... Sven...  But pleased with how happy May seems.

OK, maybe I read her expression wrong, but... she doesn't seem THAT happy to me? If this is a smile, and not a general, somewhat ambiguous "so... that happened" expression, then it's a pretty "slasher killer" smile in my book.

EDIT: I think it's the eyes. With a genuine smile, eyes narrow (I don't know how true it is for May's chassis, but with no other data, I assume her facial expressions work like they would for a human). Her eyes are wide and the pupils/irises are small, which in comic book visual shorthand does indicate a strong reaction, but doesn't exactly register as "blissful" to me.

EDIT 2: I'm not saying May is not satisfied, I'm just reading her expression as, well... expressing more than just happiness. Charitably, I read her face as a mix of happy, overwhelmed, and a little weirded out? Which in itself would be interesting for character development, because May expressing strong emotions other than contempt and anger is comparatively rare. For one, I'd love to see what happens when May is overwhelmed by anything (especially after her recent statement that sex is simple, but I digress).

May's advice to Sven is mostly good at this point in his life because sometimes you have to fuckin' *test*. get in the water, do the damned thing.

I don't feel bad for Momo, who still cares about an ancient lust-crush from a self-repressed person? Though full disclosure: I like Momo well enough, but I don't have much respect for how she treats others sometimes. So you know what maybe it would be nice to see her freak out a moment over something different.

Also to speak to people speculating about May's chassis, it bears pointing out that she has major body/self issues, and has since the beginning. It's different than some of the other characters, but you really can't do proper assessment on her without remembering that.

I don't feel bad for Momo per se, but I do wonder if May took into consideration Momo's feelings at all before jumping in the sack/watermelon/bathtub of lube with Sven.
Most people I know would say that casually hooking up with someone your best friend (or second-best friend maybe, if Dale is #1) has a crush on is not exactly cool. Especially if it's just a random meaningless hookup (yes, it's highly debatable whether this one was meaningless, I know). Considering your friend's feelings before doing so is something I would definitely expect.

Yes, you can't call dibs on a person, but unless you are actually interested in pursuing a meaningfulTM relationship, there is not real reason to hook up with the one person your friend has a crush on and needlessly hurting your friend that way.

That said, I have no problem with other people's differing opinions on this matter. Frankly, in real life I also struggle with these kind of situations where multiple friends were interested in the same person.

Has Momo's thing come up in years now, our time? Does May even know?

this is one of those subjects where I argue it shouldn't actually matter anyway, even if she does know. but i'm not gonna do a whole post about it more than i already have :p

May knows; she actually noticed Momo's reaction to Sven and challenged her to act on it (before trash-talking Sven and suggesting that no-one could admire him the way he does).

I agree with what people on the Subreddits have been saying: If May was interested in Sven, she was under no obligation to honour some alleged 'prior claim' on her friend's part. Momo has had a couple of years and has never taken action, even after getting a highly anthropomimetic chassis, so she really has no moral basis to complain, especially as she specifically denied it to May. In any case, this seems to have been more of a mutual curiosity thing for both of them; something along the lines of: "Can I really do this (and enjoy it) and will the other party enjoy it?"
