The Marvel Cinematic Universe announcement included a TV show called 'What if...?' Comics connoisseurs will recognise the title as Marvel's in-house alternate universe (some seriously 'out there') where the writers speculated on what had happened if some stories had turned out differently or characters had made different choices at key moments. If Jeph wanted to do three weeks of micro-arc comics addressing such alternatives, which ones would you like to see?

It's difficult to choose because the fanfiction writer in me can see the potential in all these options. However, I have to make three choices and, for me, they are:
  • The Evil Apprentice - Hannelore has her dark side but what if she gave it full rein? What if she had been raised by Beatrice to be what she wanted her to be and later was put in charge of the company's Massachusetts operations?
  • The Three Amigos - The mini versions of the three earliest named AI characters on a journey across the continental US trying to become more than the comfort-toys of three hopeless humans;
  • The Disney Princess and the Cloud-Cuckoolander - Emily and Claire as college dorm-mates; maybe even more with time?

The most obvious What if? is Marten and Faye as item.

Not that I want to see Jeph go there.

Comic's up, and I wonder if Claire realises that Cosmo won't care about the collar. All Cosmo will think is "PRESENT!" and "GREY!"

I think that today's guest artist has hit one nail dead on the head: Claire is disturbingly intense when it comes to the subject of Cosmo and her happiness. I strongly suspect that there will be a pet of some kind in Marten and Claire's life soon enough simply because Claire starts to wear her welcome with her mother a bit thin by constantly dropping in to see Cosmo!

The most obvious What if? is Marten and Faye as item.

I agree and that's why I didn't include it in the main list. I wanted to explore other ideas and directions.

If Vicky had wanted things to work with Marten, this strip would have never happened.

Or might have happened in a very different way. Faye may have ended up rooming with Dora and Hannelore may have started hanging out with Sven a lot earlier in the timeline. Meanwhile, Marten is introduced to CoD by Vicky who assures him that the barista watching is 'a constant and never-ending show'.

And this is really something Claire’s Mom should be deciding. 

Maybe Claire is a tad obsessed because she’s between school and a career.

Usually, but I wouldn't use the word "never."  Some critters have a pretty good grasp on the idea of personal property & the concept of "MINE!" and will latch on to certain toys, etc., while not giving a rip about the others.  Try, just try, and take the green rubber lizard away from my cousin's dachshund.  The rest of the toys in her toybox are for sharing, but not that one.

Guest comic or not - this doesn't feel too far off for Claire. It's a bit of Guest Hyperbole, and accidentally missing movie time with marten feels on par.

OK, I feel like a tool, because when Winslow chose a pink Deluxe Boy body, I just assumed that meant he was gay, because Pink On Men Must Mean Gay, and not just because, y'know, it's a nice color.

Heh. Yeah, never give the poor reader a break: -
Is Winslow actually smitten by Roko?...Or is it just a huge annoying coincidence that that song came on just now?
Is Winslow just momentarily dazzled by the (admittedly) hot appearance of Roko?...Or will he be wishing he'd chosen something more stereo-typically macho for a body?  :roll:
Is Winslow thinking "She thinks this song's catchy? It's OUR song now !!!"?...Or is he thinking "Wow, I was stunned by that sudden horrible loud noise..."?  :-D

The accident happened while Winslow and Hanners were away.  So this is his introduction to the new "deluxe" Roko.  And he appears to be impressed.

I think this ship has as much of a chance as Momo and Sven, but it’s cute all the same. 

And I can sympathize with May.  I worked in a convenience store with a radio we couldn’t change.  I would’ve slit my wrists if I had to listen to the country music channel for more than an hour.

*bait swallowed*

OMG! I totally ship this! Roko and Winslow are so absolutely not perfect for each other, this has to become a thing.  :-D

There is no way around it. Why? Not only because they are both pink (sort of). They both have state-of-the-art high-end bodies. Roko has an enhanced sensory upgrade and loves tactile experiences. Maybe Winslow does the same? Maybe it’s time to explore something else than the touch of bread?
And not to forget: they both have nipples. Those thingies have to be good for something, don‘t they? :roll:

The more I think about this, Winslow's insta-crush on Roko really fits in with his teen-sized body. I think that we can all agree that having a surge of attraction for someone is a very, very and uniquely teen/tween experience and reminds us that, for some reason, the chassis does seem to define the behaviour of the AI inhabiting it!

I can't help wonder if Roko noticed or if she thinks that this is a default response by straight guys to her new chassis. More interestingly, is it a default response and just how is she handling that?

Finally, on the subject of in-store music, I'm into 80s and early-90s stuff a lot more than contemporary music. Although this particular track isn't a favourite, I could endure. My only bugbear is shops that insist on playing pounding music at a ear-bleedingly loud volume.

My votes are Tunak Tun Tun, Ievan Pollka, Bananaphone, Never Gonna Let You Down, You are a Pirate!, the Macarena and for the classic rock fans, The Chicken Song.

As May said it's a radio station, it's probably a 'gold' or 'classical rock' AM or streaming-only station that plays 'Best of the 80s and 90s' compilation CDs on a random shuffle. Also expect performers like Cindi Lauper, Boy George, Duran Duran, Dire Straits and Bon Jovi.

...and Hi-Jinx ensue as Winslow attempts to court Roko using May's suggestions!

Roko has an enhanced sensory upgrade and loves tactile experiences. Maybe Winslow does the same? Maybe it’s time to explore something else than the touch of bread?
Given Winslow's reaction to being licked by a reindeer, I expect a love of tactile feedback may take him a long time to develop.  Not that it wouldn't be fun to watch that developing...  :-D

It probably would have been pretty obvious to Roko if the music was coming from Winslow instead of the store speakers, so I think it’s safe to assume that it was just a silly coincidence that the song started playing at that moment.

I just noticed Roko has bunnage, like Sven did when May first noticed him.  What *is* in store for poor little Winslow, if bunnage is actually a signal...   :-o   :laugh:

My guess is that, if Roko is even aware of Winslow's reaction, she'll treat him like he's a teenager with a crush to let down gently. This may lead to him to prove to her that he is a lot more mature than his small stature might suggest. However, I also wonder if May will get jealous that 'Miss Executive-Quality Chassis' gets all the attention and this may direct her choices when she's given a chance to get a new chassis of her own.

Leave is to Jeph to go with the ONE ship no one was suggesting :P

I hope I'm wrong, but I'm getting serious "Momo and Sven" vibes here, so we'll see if Winslow can break; out of the "fantasize about from afar" loop.

Please tell me I'm not the only one now that wants to see sweet little Winslow curled up happily in Roko's lap while she fusses him  :laugh: :lol:

Ok is this song that is supposedly playing over the speakers real? I'm not a big music connoisseur so I miss the ref for sure. I do like the fact that Winslow has taken a fancy to Roku...so i hope that goes somewhere. It is probably safe to say that Roku has been around longer than Winslow or she is just more mature for her age. It will be interesting to see what happens now.

So if May gets a new body what if she gets a choice...I bet she would like something like Bubbles chassis....battle ready...LOL

And I can sympathize with May.  I worked in a convenience store with a radio we couldn’t change.  I would’ve slit my wrists if I had to listen to the country music channel for more than an hour.
At least it's not Fox News or Rush Limbaugh.

What is Love, by Haddaway, a Trinidadian-German Eurodance artist. The 1993 song was from his debut album The Album, the song was far more successful in Europe than it was elsewhere, and is one of the most recognisable songs of the 90s.
