    Does that mean Momo is going to get eaten by an allosaur now?

    Possibly. But she does have an effective defense against it. Perhaps we shall see an allosaur with broken teeth and smoke from an electrocution stomping by some day. A disheveled momo appears and tells her friend "I DONT WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT!"

    Ok. I think this is an acceptable de-escalation. Momo knows she overreacted and wasn't being fair, and unless something happened in between when she left and when the page picked up, she hasn't done anything that cant be fixed by just cleanly apologizing.

    Still, Momo is supposed to be the responsible one.

    As someone that at least attempts to be the responsible one, I can vouch for the fact that I am 100% reasonable and responsible at all times still slip up from time to time and over-react or otherwise mess up in the heat of the moment. Some physical space and a bit of time is sometimes needed to get that initial reaction under wraps so that the sensible, rational part of me that I generally want making my decisions can chime in.

    I mean, fine, Momo decided to act reasonable after all, but then what was the point of the last three updates? To talk about a crush that doesn't matter? To show Momo can be unreasonable? Filler? If it leads somewhere, fine, but if it was drama over nothing...

    Could be any number of things; a catalyst for Momo to become more assertive, tension between May and Momo to prompt May into seeking other company, a set up for Momo to pay more attention to what other people around her want, May helping Momo get over the crush she apparently still feels, May helping Momo act on the crush she apparently still feels....

    That is awesome! I was trying to make sense of the picture on the back of the book, but it didn't click until you pointed that out.

    I missed the reference, but now, upon researching it, it's pretty funny. Momo's *definitely* been spending too much time with Marigold.

    I'm showing my age when I point out that I was expecting it to be a Fist Of The North Star reference. I was vaguely in the right area of media though, which is closer than I usually get.

    Well, Kenshiro reference would go more like Atatatatatatatata!!! So the same sentiment but different words if words they are.

    I think the author did the "you are already dead" reference in his comic title, so fist of the north star got included.

    Momo's original chassis was a deliberate anime reference to begin with, so its more likely she had her own interest and understanding.

    And thus the drama-spiral begins; May makes an innocent off-hand comment, Momo gets angry, Momo lashes out at May, May gets pissed off, May lashes out at Roko, Roko takes a kitchen appliance to her face again...

    ...It occurs to me that both I and the comic are possibly taking an allegory for self-harming way too flippantly, under the circumstances. I'll stop that - hopefully Jeph will too.

    What are the odds on Roko offering May a bodyswap?

    Yeah, they canonically exist as options, but how many characters take that option? How many characters that take one of those options exist on-screen?

    Well crushbot was a dude. So was punchbot who faye kept etching dongs on as punishment. They didnt take those options, but punchpot picked a masculine frame. And of course, as covered in the comic, winslow has his manly man body. Or deluxe regular boy, whatever.

    The "factory bot" chose a "masculine" body when he took over the shop.

    "Jeremy", was maybe the name.
    It is one thing to suspend your disbelief. It is another thing entirely to hang it by the neck until dead.

    Verisimilitude -- n, the appearance or semblance of truth, likelihood, or probability.

    The concern is not realism in speculative fiction, but rather the sense that a setting or story could be real, fostered by internal consistency and coherence.

    It's actually not unreasonable for there to be a numeric imbalance between robot genders in the QC universe. The majority of embodied AIs we see began existence programmed for service roles supporting humans, and currently the majority of real world machine-human interfaces are programmed to present as female (there are various reasons why this is the case, but for this question those aren't important). We can even see, in the comic, a general trend for AIs with a more industrial bent to present as male, while AIs that are more socially oriented present as female (there are exceptions, like Bubbles). This makes sense, as AIs that learn their interactions by observing humans would be expected to mimic our gender stereotyping.

    I'm honestly struggling to imagine something that Roko is LESS likely to agree to! Going from Roko 1.0 to 2.0 even though they're visually identical has been traumatic for her; going from Roko 2.0 to Second-Hand Ex-Con/Prison Issue would be about as far from comfortable as one could probably imagine.

    Maybe Roko's story will inspire May to hang out on the sidewalk near Union Robotics and hope for another falling Crushbot, though. It's his insurance that pays out, so she'd get fixed up with a new body on his bill.
    Heck, maybe Roko could join her? The yellow fembot that she was talking to in the shop said that she went through a couple of bodies before she found one that was comfortable, maybe the two of them could spot for each other and see who can be 'lucky' enough to try out more new bodies until they're both happy? That could possibly be played for laughs in a dark, Loony Tunes-style montage.

    There was also the spiky-haired guy who paid Sam to draw on him. At least, I think that one was referred to as "he", the hair and eyes were pink after all, for what that matters?
    Also, May's parole officer has (what appears to be) a Regular Boy chassis like Winslow. Generally speaking though, male AI's do seem to prefer the stylised chassis' rather than the softer-edged human-like ones that Roko, Lemon and the other female 'bots have.

    On that note, does anybody else wish Jeph wouldn't spell out the silly phonetic accent? It just makes it much harder to read her dialogue, and while I cant confirm this either way, I have a sneaking suspicion that Jeph doesn't actually know what an agitated Bostonian would sound like.
