Going with a lame poll, but it's the best I could do. I'm a bit off on this, sorry.

You know, I didn't even have to think twice about my vote in the poll. I wonder if the purple monkeys were due to Emily's attempt to blend Unicorn Valley Chai?

I'm beginning to think that the secret of Hannelore's improvement basically boils down to her having had so many traumatic experiences that her panic response has completely burned out. So, in future: "Oh, hey, a mudslide is rushing towards the town. Cool."

I wonder what kind of millipede/centipede it was? Some of those things are seriously multi-legged and continuous!

Millipede has way to many legs but for the most part are herbivorous.
Centipedes are creepier, faster, carnivorous and their bite is toxic at some level from owie to "call an ambulance" to "call the mortician".

Hydrazine Coffee - Strong enough to launch an ICBM and just as toxic.

It's good to know that Clinton has still got his AI behaviour & how it's changing society thing going. It's just that he's slowly learned not to be creepy about it (which was never more than overenthusiasm and a really weak recognition of boundaries in conversation). That said, for someone with his interests, a relationship like that Faye and Bubbles have must be endlessly interesting.

Faye, if it makes you feel better, I don't think that Clinton is really looking at you. You're just the two people in the direction his eyes are pointing right now!

One prominent forumite has written extensively on the 'joys' of being very obviously physically superior to virtually anybody in almost any circumstance.

Apparently, it's not all its made out to be. More like trying to behave as unthreateningly as you possibly can, all the time.

I think Jeph was ridiculing Faye for it.

There were a lot of well founded complaints on the forum about Faye's assaults on Marten in the early strips. She's improved and this might also have been a callback to remind us she doesn't actually do that any more.

To be honest, if this were my real life and not a comic strip, I'd cut Faye out of my life pretty quickly. Too unpleasant to be around no matter how well intentioned she is. Bubbles is such the polar opposite that I've never really understood the attraction. Though no doubt a military background inures you to that kind of thing.

I think so too. Faye's always been my favourite character, but I haven't been blind to her nonsense over the years, and it always made me cringe when she used violence. Intellectually I could figure why she did, but emotionally it always bothered me.

I actually like that we haven't seen a lot of the most private emotional moments between Faye and Bubbles. (I know we have seen some, but the way they're written now, there's gotta be a lot we don't see). I imagine that their bond may have begun with a mutual understanding of 'going through some hardcore shit and making a real effort to come out the other side', but there's clearly way more to it than that now.

Plus however much you like your partner, however much you fancy them, however much you love them, even - I personally think the most successful and lasting relationships are the ones where you respect each other in addition to all of the above.

To be fair, in fiction particularly in comedies women physically and emotionally abusing men for little to no reason has not only been considered perfectly acceptable but even something to be applauded. Its rarely ever treated as the utterly horrific thing is actually is in reality.

I guess that stuff like this is going to hit poor Bubbles sometimes. She might have had a girlfriend prior to Faye but, as that was during her time in the military, the likelihood is that she'll never know for sure. Just to maximise the trauma, if she was one of Bubbles's squad, that means that she's dead and Bubbles could easily be blindsided with a relative at some point. FWIW, it could explain her seeking a mind-wipe if the loss was that intimate and personal.

Clinton? Did you know about Bubbles' troubled past? If not, then this isn't your fault. Yeah, still awkward though...

Because when Faye punches someone its ok because its funny when Faye punches people. Even funnier now that no one could even consider defending themselves against Faye given her girl friend

Yeah, "jokes" about violence from a person who has a history of violence - and now comes with an actual-war-machine girlfriend - are less, shall we say, "ha ha" funny.

And I never was even *that* upset with Faye's behaviour back when she was punch-happy. But come ON.

Almost certainly deadpan humour ŗ la the last panel of #3485.

Warning - blah blah blah

Yes, you could make that argument.

It does seem like the kind of private joke that Faye and Bubbles would make just between the two of them. As long as they are not enacting it, I find it hard to get worked up over it.

This is getting to be a habit. I should just change my title to Tova, defender of all of the terrible, terrible people that inhabit the World of QC

Jeph did say once that he enjoys writing Faye but would probably not like her in real life.

I'm remembering that we've had a member here who was a victim of female-inflicted domestic violence. Faye has reminded more than one person of someone really bad from their pasts. I will be respectful of the criticisms.

Yes, you could say it's cartoon violence, but the counter to that is we are eager to think of the characters as real people.

"Killer Death Espresso (with extra espresso)"
Actually, I'd prefer "Killer Death Espresso (with extra Death)" - but that's just because I like coffee strong enough to corrode my fillings   :-D

I wonder what Faye is up to? She wasn't upset or anything in the previous comic, so I don't suspect anything stupid - but she's definitely covering up something...

Wait ... what?  Why or how is Bubbles having an awkward moment suddenly cause for Faye to be all abruptly "welp I'm out" and "whatever"ing her significant other?

Is this Faye simply having a "foot in mouth" realization and thinking she's better off at home rather than accidentally provoking painful moments?  Or is she somehow blaming Bubbles for the unpleasantness, given the brusque dismissal at the end?

If it's (B), then I'm really starting to get the poster upthread who said something about Faye being ultimately too prickly and unpleasant to be worth the trouble.

Could be all at once it struck her that her entire relationship with Bubbles could be deleted without a trace, the idea of this pinged back on her father's suicide and whether she understood that explicitly or not, it triggered her; now she needs a few minutes alone to get her bearings back and figure out what's going on.

Chances are she's not going to be able to explain it to Bubbles until she understands it more herself, so she just got out of there. As someone with a trauma disorder, I've found it's basically impossible to be polite if I'm triggered badly enough because my resources are all tied up in being triggered. It's usually a victory if I don't end up doubled over myself in a bathroom stall. Of course, I've done my best to establish protocols, code words and friends who know what's up in advance of my suddenly tipping into shutdown, but that's because I've been dealing with trauma for decades and come to terms with some stuff. Lots of people with trauma disorders don't/won't understand trauma response. I feel like that's because how little science really understands about trauma overall.

I think Faye was being dismissive and closed-off about her reasons for leaving because she doesn't really understand them herself.  She just knows she needs to leave, and that it's related to Clinton and Bubbles.  As much as Faye loves Bubbles, parsing this out is a conversation she needs to have with Marten or Dora (maybe... if that relationship's fully recovered from the firing incident).

Wait ... what?  Why or how is Bubbles having an awkward moment suddenly cause for Faye to be all abruptly "welp I'm out" and "whatever"ing her significant other?

It sure comes across as being upset with Bubbles. Which is stupid and immature, because memory loss or not, most people have romantic histories. Getting bent out of shape about someone having a life before you is not something adults do.

If it's (B), then I'm really starting to get the poster upthread who said something about Faye being ultimately too prickly and unpleasant to be worth the trouble.

In which case Bubbles is stuck since I can't imagine her breaking her vows.

Okay, genuine question, because it didn't come across that way to me (I was just completely confused by what's just happened).

Did you conclude her action was stupid and immature because it came across as her being upset with Bubbles, or did you conclude she was being upset with Bubbles because you'd previously decided that she is stupid and immature?
