For me it all seem very weird. A day or two after a long trip taking some time to relax and rewind seem.. healthy? That what I would do and recommend friends to do. And when looking out the window he has a big genuine smile.

Welcome, new person!

That may have been where Dora was coming from. Hannelore's apparently not overcome her worrying.

I think he wants normality more than any of the characters and fate constantly presents him the weirdest animal situations.

Poor Winslow, he thought he'd signed up to join some nice, normal webcomic.

For comic #4063...

1. This frickin' town... (3327)  (EDIT: Heh, andrybak beat me to it by minutes. :roll: )

2. Poor Winslow.  But as soon as he said it, I knew there would be some ungulate waiting for him.  Either that or Samantha with an armload of snakes...

3. And daaaaaang, Fairy Girl looking fine today. 8-)

This is shaping up to be another argument as to who is terrible.

I do think that Hannelore might benefit from being more aware of how negatively Winslow viewed and continues to view the whole experience (she was failing to notice his fears when they visited the seabed research base, IIRC). However, on the other hand, Winslow should know enough from her experiences to know that simply hiding from your fear and pain does not help.

All that said, I do not believe that this should be considered even about 'who is terrible' but rather 'how can I help'. Blame is misplaced when there is no obvious way anyone could have foreseen.

Thank you for this. Itís possible for people to not foresee things or even not notice things without being terrible people.

Let's back up a minute.

Winslow's going to visit May, and doesn't expect to encounter any strange people? That seems like setting yourself up for failure.

Not as much as if he'd been on his way to visit Melon, of course, but still...

Like everyone else, I have to say 'Poor Winslow'! However, I literally have a suspension of disbelief failure that he didn't know just how weird Northampton is as a place. I mean, even if you set aside Fairy Girl, he should know enough from just what Hannelore has told him about working at Coffee of Doom to know that the laws of probability are all askew here!

Am I the only one who remembers that Fairy Girl can speak in human? Remember her talking to Emily about whether she can grant wishes? Of course, I recall Claire's reaction so I suppose that it's possible that Emily can talk fairy and Claire was reacting to listening to the two of them tinkle at each other!

2. Poor Winslow.  But as soon as he said it, I knew there would be some ungulate waiting for him.  Either that or Samantha with an armload of snakes...

Just wait; the day isn't over yet and Samantha has got to have some excuse to get back into the story!

But seriously, Pintsize is known to be able to give proper advice. And be it just for Winslow to be less obviously teasable.

My Wish
Fairy Girl is actually Sara McKinney, the former CoD barista who was allegedly 'eaten by a Allosaur'. After that ugly accident at the natural history museum, she quit CoD and became a street performer because life is short and she didn't want to leave her dreams on hold any longer. Faye has supported this new life wholeheartedly and helped her develop her 'fairy talk' language.

Faye is the only one of the early CoD crew who knows what happened to her. I think that Marten and Dora finding out what she has done with herself after getting out of hospital would be a very funny arc!

With Winslow I think part of the issue is just that he has had a lot happen in a short period. He is anxious and also a bit scared. He was exposed to a lot of new things when he traveled with Hannelore, he was there as her friend but I can also understand him feeling afraid or uneasy.
Friend or designated companion to help her navigate life?  She throws him into an environment where both are really out of their comfort zones, he probably moreso than her - see the comment about non-standard recharging - and now he's the one who needs help dealing with the present...  I'm sure he's a little out-of-sorts not only personally but professionally - he's supposed to be helping her and ... isn't.  Poor AIs gonna need some time to sort it all out,  but then he succumbs to Hanners' subtle jibbing about getting on with his life and immediately meets exactly what he doesn't want... 

If AIs need fuses, I'm sure he's gonna need a few replacements.  Maybe Roko can help him sort through his issues?

She was eaten by an allosaurus.

This concept would require that 'eaten by an allosaurus' is a humorous (originating from Faye) metaphor for 'An allosaurus skeleton fell on her at the natural history museum'. Hence going to the hospital; those things are only made of carbon fibre but you really don't want to have one fall on you.

May meets Fairy Lady should be interesting.

And Spooks.  Spookyay's apparent omniscience comes from being plugged into every data network on the planet.  I figure Fairy's cyberworld footprint is small indeed, like the person with no credit rating good, bad, or indifferent.  That should be an entertaining encounter.  (Although Spooky likes at least two biocritters, so they might make friends with the Urban Cariboo right away. 

"Boo" - Affectionate nickname, particularly in the southern United States.  The reindeer can be Carrie Boo or Kerry Boo, depending on gender.

Winslow's face in panel five looks to me a lot like Nick Chopper's face (in his human form) in Skin Horse. Hair's the wrong color and he doesn't have freckles, but his expression is Nick's default, to a tee.

Hannelore has always been one of my favourite characters, but I'm not liking her much at the moment. Winslow is clearly distraught, and all she's doing is nudging him into immediate action. I think Dora was right. Let him chill for a while!

Considering the syllable structure of Fairy Girl's language (CV, where C=L and V can be any of the five common English vowels), there are five possible syllables in her language. That means that each syllable can contain a little over two bits of information, or a bit less than the information contained in the average letter in English text. Incidentally, a group at the University of Lyon in France did a study where they looked at the spoken information density of various languages. They found that languages where less information was carried per syllable (for example, Japanese compared to Mandarin Chinese), the languages with less information per syllable were spoken faster, meaning the rate of information in the speech was about the same. Which means that Fairy Girl is probably speaking 'lo la lu le le' pretty fast.

I made an account just to say that I would also love to see the Fairy Girl become a part of the main cast, she seems genuinely kind from what we've seen of her, and probably really fun to be around. Super duper weird... but then again so is nearly everyone else in the cast.

Welcome, new person!

I think that is a good description of her.

Her language appears to be tonal so there is a bit more information in each syllable than there would otherwise be.

I made an account just to say that I would also love to see the Fairy Girl become a part of the main cast, she seems genuinely kind from what we've seen of her, and probably really fun to be around. Super duper weird... but then again so is nearly everyone else in the cast.

Perhaps she could replace Pizza Girl.  We  haven't seen her in awhile...  or maybe she is Fairy Girl.  No couldn't be.  Faye would've recognized her.

I think that we've finally found out what Bubbles sees in Faye on a physical level: She's really into things that are soft and warm and cuddly (which pretty much is Faye). After learning to handle Faye's personality there was literally no downside to the relationship!

I love the effort Jeph made to turn Fairy Girl's little noises into a structured language of some sort. It makes me honestly think that she's actually decided to become a fairy down to creating her own way of expressing herself!

It's also wonderfully in-character for Winslow to apologise to Fairy Girl; like Momo, I think he permanently lives in terror of breaching some unspoken social rule and, in his case, maybe getting Hannelore in trouble.

Finally, I'm kind of starting to see the advertising angle here:

Found a Synthetic broken down in the street?
Think it may need fixing?

Then Drag 'Em To...


Union Robotics!

Which raises an interesting point. Union Robotics is already catching on to the point that a fairy girl who sees a crashed synthetic on the street thinks of UR first. That's unusually fast for a startup but they deserve it.

There's a certain sort of meta-linguistic sense in the idea of Faye speaking fae.
