    But alcoholism is not what precipitated Fayes's breakup with Angus. Her lack of courage in addressing and discussing the situation before it came to a decision was the issue, and it's exactly the point of Marten's discussion with Fayes.

    She did discuss it though. Its not like his move came out of nowhere, he specifically sought out the position well in advance and told her he was doing it. Faye crashed and burned because she wasn't able to handle losing him in a healthy manner, but she pretty much knew it would come to that if he wanted to leave the whole time.

    And she blew him off at the time. Refused to seriously consider the possibility until she had to actually make a choice. Angus did the right thing, but it takes two to dance.

    That description is clearly fabricated though, since he says his housemates threw the party, but it's only 50 strips later that we first meet Marigold.

    Or Jeph didn't have the idea for Marigold until 10 weeks later, and by then had forgotten the reference to Angus' housemates.

    He was probably exaggerating a little. Or its possible Marigold is secretly some sort of cultist who sacrifices goats. Either or.

    I'm pretty sure Jeph knows the difference, but I love that Faye knows the term 'acromegaly,' but attributes FDR quotes to Teddy.

    You mean Teddy didn't get all the best quotes? He was the superior Roosevelt, after all.

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    No he got all the quotes, tore them from the cold dead hands of whoever dared to try and say them first! And yes that includes any lines spoken after his body took a nap while his soul continued being so manly beards sprout wherever he haunts.

    I just hope he gives her 5 minutes to decompress before dropping this whole existential question on her.

    Possibly. Labeling the modest kicking of a small trash can as "Strife!" however also works on a joke on its own.

    At least Marten has precisely the correct reaction to the ridiculous hyperbole of considering that "being violent".

    Well... that sucked all drama and contention out of the issue? Turns out that Claire isn't stressed out from her busy day and has given plenty of thought to the issue, she just hasn't brought it up because there's not enough specific information to go on yet.

    Not that I'm asking for angsty drama and moping, but what else could tomorrow's comic be, apart from one or both of them saying "okay, let's make some applications and see what comes up before we get too heavily invested in any one scenario, but until then; tacos?"

    Honestly, I'm happier this way. The more interesting story for me is Tai & Dora. We already had the most dramatic version available of "But oh, I have to go away".

    That's a good point. Given the Marten/Claire existential crisis has turned out to be something of a none-issue, it suddenly feels like Jeph is deliberately dragging out the cliff-hanger for... some reason?

    Yeah, in our world it was names after Jacob F***s, but you know planning commissions and their lousy spelling...

    The Fuchsberg/F***sberg thing is really the major difference between our world and the QC reality. Well, that and all the AIs and super-science space labs and orbital pizza insertion and stuff.

    Wait, are you telling me you DON'T have orbital pizza delivery in your area?
