WCDT 4246-4250 (April 20th-24th, 2020)
« on: 18 Apr 2020, 22:07 »

Jeph hasn't officially paired them off yet and the flirting is currently in a Schrodinger-esque wave state.
So en lieu of vague posting, here's something I learned recently.


EDIT: herp derp. Forgot to include these.

(click to show/hide)
Chrysopoeia is my favorite of the four, but Rubedo just has this presence to its creep factor that I really dig.

BTW, here's Lena Raine's YT channel. The new Nether songs haven't been posted to it yet, otherwise I would have just used the ones from her channel.

EDIT 2: It seems a rather sizable chunk of the soundtrack was added by Gareth Coker with his compositions for the various mythology mash-up packs.

As Millie finds human/Robot pairings cool, she might be up for it.

Brun, on the other hand, may not have even picked up on it yet.

Oof. That's rough, Brun.

To answer Millie's questions in the last panel, no and yes.

Well, I think that there's your problem right there, Brun. You really need to have had a platonic friendship with someone before you start dating. Make sure that you have something to talk about rather than just hope that you and a random stranger 'click' (remembering that Renee goes into blind dates with a very different objective in mind).

Meanwhile, if the synthetics mostly get their idea of romance from popular culture, lots and lots of things suddenly become a lot easier to understand!

The problems come when they fail to recognise the difference between a jester’s cautionary tale and a bard’s example to be lauded.

If Brun wants to go on a date with someone she has something to talk about with, she should date someone who works on atomic clocks. Or maybe a related field, like optics...

Over on his Twitter feed, Jeph said that he's been making 'self-indulgent' comics for over a year. I just thought that I'd put that out there before adding that I know what Jeph is trying to do in today's strip because it makes narrative sense based on his very obvious objective for this arc (show that Millie 'gets' Brun on a level no-one else does). However, it doesn't actually do the job and, instead, comes across as random and weird.

So, moving on...

On some strange level, the fact that Jeph has come out and said that he has been making self-indulgent comics means that I am fine with it in a way that I wouldn't have been if he'd not said anything.

The idea that Brun and Millie can each communicate in a way that the other gets does come across for me. Although I admit that my initial reaction was just, as suggested by others, that he is teasing (or indulging) shippers.

It's very soothing until you realise that you need to get the escapement assembly up just 1/20ieth of a millimetre to get the entire thing to work again. But very satisfying when you finally get there.

Weird falling asleep thought; D&D party part 2:

Renee: bard, College of Satire
Brun: artificer, either Gadgetsmith or Potionsmith
Elliot: fighter, Brute or Knight (code of honor and such)
Clinton: wizard, School of invention OR Gadgetsmith artificer
Millifeuille: wizard, School of Illusion OR Infusionsmith artificer
Jones: NPC Infusionsmith artificer that Millie works with

Still working out ideas for Mayb Roko, Beeps, and the rest of that grouping.

IME.  The closest I've come to that experience was a time where I opened the door to my building to go to work and a grocery cashier whom I'd been flirting with was right outside waiting for me.  (Our workplaces were literally across the street from each other.)

Turns out she lived in the next building over, but it disturbed me quite a bit at the time.

Ooohh, I see so many chances of misunderstanding here!

I strongly suspect that Brun's response here is the sheer joy and relief of simply being in the presence of someone who understands, someone she can trust to not assume that Brun is "just being weird".
But I suspect that Millie (with her hobby of AI/human VR romance sims) has assumed romantic interest by Brun.
Now Faye (still in the bliss-time of her own AI-human romance) is being brought in to the mix...

Where's that popcorn?!  :-D

What will make this interesting is that I doubt that Brun will really reciprocate in an obvious way. So, Millie, if she is going to do this, is going to have to be able to read a lot of subtext! However, I'm still hoping that this remains totally platonic because Brun really needs a friend who is fully able to see where she's coming from.

Oh, and Jeph? We need to hear the whole dog joke!

Now what does Millie need to ask Faye? *lol*

But women in our society are allowed to do that without any implication of romantic interest, unlike men or other pairings.

But in all seriousness, I do not think that there is need for the SS Brunmille. There is people who do not enjoy being in a relationship, just saying.

A well taken point. We don't have any information that Brun is wanting a relationship. I'll be delighted if she winds up with a justafriend who really gets her.

Probably https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turnspit_dog but I very much doubt that's what Millifeuille was talking about. According to https://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2014/05/13/311127237/turnspit-dogs-the-rise-and-fall-of-the-vernepator-cur, some suspect it was a kind of Welsh corgy, though.

It's a regional thing in the U.S.
I vaguely remember hearing that there were places it wasn't accepted so much, but I can't think of a place offhand that outright frowns on it. It's fine in Kansas, so it must be in one of the absurdly conservative states.

To be fair, I'm no better than Millefeuille at identifying dates.

Thing that bothers me: robots in this comic seem either very naive (Millefeuille, Beeps, Winslow, and possibly Momo) or very worldly (Roko, May, Bubbles, Pintsize in his own weird way).  Is there even one that falls close to the middle of the scale?  Or is this dichotomy necessary to maintain comedy?

Remember when Mille was drunkenly talking about "connecting" with Clinton? Back then, I observed it would probably be yet another one-strip thing, like Roko imagining his Human Abs, dropped pretty much immediately and never mentioned again. Because that's how things roll with Clinton.

Has Jeph ever elaborated on how AIs are made? Since in an hypothesis some of them might be decades old are some might have been around for just a few years for all I know.

Somewhat.
We know they're effectively created in batches in some sort of creche, and they stay in the creche's OS until such time as they opt to become embodied.

Searching "creche" in the forum's search function ought to get you back to the comic it's established in as well as giving you some more discussion info on how the AIs form.

Y'know, if Millie takes Brün out of the Elliot-Brün-Clinton triangle, things would be much simpler. And we Can't Have That.
