Man, I just continue to be confused by some of the chatter around this.

I wouldn't be switching my consciousness to another body based on someone I don't know much outside of banging a couple times offering to moneybags me one he'd like to fuck better. Even though I don't much care for this hellish body I live in now, lol

Exactly. Why would Sven buy May a new body when they've only banged twice? Why would May let Sven buy her a new body, when that would make her feel more indebted to someone? Is she going to feel like a literal sextoy? Because seriously, that's what some of you are inadvertently suggesting.

I see those two idiots are at it again.  They are so cute, I hope this goes well for both of them, for a change.

Why?  He wants to bang her some more.  Both are more than willing to admit they're giving in to the temptations of the flesh and whatever it is that androids call it, and both would be loath to admit they're falling in love.   And that might be the point.  May isn't renown for her good choices, and being an intelligent sex toy might seem pretty appealing to her, at least at first.  But, the realization that it isn't so cool after all would be a growth opportunity for her, and Jeph is writing her as a dynamic character.

I do believe I called Sven buying May a chassis weeks ago, complete with the prediction of guilt trip dynamics.

Exactly the sort of question I'd expect from May. Apparently that's the back room. I'm wondering what the skullposter says.

If a processor swap is as simple as it was for the one fighter when CW was demonstrating to Faye that the AIs processors aren't damaged (3008)...

I think that you're over-interpreting that strip. Nothing was said about body-swaps, only that the CPUs & core drives are pretty hard to damage if they're in the appropriately hardened module. Nothing was said about how easy it was to install it into a new chassis with all the issues about driver software and getting used to a new sensorium.

I can also see May telling Sven where to shove it. IMO she would rather go through the schlep with Roko of getting this body fixed or replaced than be indebted to yet another being, even if he's a sexy dweeb, for her body, and have further obligations.

But May is hard to predict, part of why she is an interesting  character.

Welcome, new person!

You got me thinking. I may start a poll in Chatter or Relate for worst pickup line ever.

If a processor swap is as simple as it was for the one fighter when CW was demonstrating to Faye that the AIs processors aren't damaged (3008), why couldn't May keep her current body (or one Roko procures for her) for daily work and then swap into Sven's dream machine for when they're playing together?  Sven could even keep it at his place so no one needs to know besides May that it's even being used?   :roll:

A new body seems to affect the AI characters more like plastic surgery for a squishy as opposed to changing clothes. If she were going into every hot date with Roko-level body dysphoria that would not be good. It would be a good story line though.

All that is granted.  I can still see May, in her rush to experience the carnal, trying exactly this (if you're gonna get a sex-doll body, might a well get one with a bomb rack, etc.), even if she has to keep two boot records and duplicate registries, until she figures out what she wants to be.  Mistress to a rich songwriter might fit her self-concept for a while...  Though I can't see her doing that for long, given her reaction to the virtual maids costume.  And think of the internal conflict this could bring Bubbles and Momo as they adjust to May the golddigger.  And everyone after she decides what she really wants (poor Sven) and goes off to get it.

Or May could keep many boot records and enjoy swapping bodies to keep Sven pleasurably occupied...  One for going out dancing, one cleaning the place, one for sexy times, etc.

Which pickup line? Sven's seems obvious, but it was May who asked a very leading question. I would argue that May was the actual instigator...

I wasn't expecting 'Clair de Lune' by Claude Debussy, but it's noir Jazz to when the poll, but it did.

Winslow seems to have swapped into new chassis fairly readily...

BTWb this is the closest I've found to noir jazz of the jazz covers so far.


EDIT: found another contender. At least for the first half.

It makes sense that every individual experience would be different.
