Thorn: New plan. Minister, don’t move.
Violet (thinking): He’s not a vampire, so she’s probably not here to assassinate him, but —
Sven: No, guys, it’s okay! She’s not an enemy, she’s a Holger Saga fan I met at a party!
Hi, Nasturtium ~ Remember me? Did you realize you left your shawl at the Embassy?
Del: You’re under arrest.
Sven: Don’t be silly, I have diplomatic immunity! I also still have your shawl. Maybe you’d like to come get it back?
So as a cultural minister, would that make him under US legalities a diplomatic agent?
Follow-up: Technically D is not working under legal precedent, so she doesn’t have to give a damn about diplomatic legal framework correct?
D isn’t worried about it, but unfortunately for her, Violet and Thorn definitely are…
I just took a look at the panel where he finds her scarf, and HOLY MOLY it was over two years ago! IRL, not in comic, obviously.
I checked the timeline for it, it was a year ago in comic.
He remembered her name for that long too… Or maybe that’s reasonable and I’m jealous because I can’t remember names for 5 minutes.
I’m totally on-board with “romantic/maybe a tiny bit obsessive”. He met her ONCE, and only had to be reminded of her name once. It took me two days to realize that one of my co-workers was actually went by Man, and our supervisor wasn’t just generally shouting for someone.
He reconized her immediately. But in this strip http://leifandthorn.com/comic/the-show-must-grow-on-overture-17-21/ he doesn’t know or react on her. So seeds are more important than textiles?
No, in the earlier strip, he had his memory jogged. Now he’s had time enough to remember who she is.
In that strip, Sven was too focused on his mission (and on being unobtrusive) to pay close attention to the people around him. It’s different now that he’s being directly confronted with Del’s face and voice.
What? I tried to go to the next page and I COULDN’T. And then I realized I was caught up. And now I’m salty. XD
Welcome to the present day!
I think it took me a couple of weeks on a prior job to realize that Guy was one of my coworkers’ name.
For what it’s worth, he was definitely a guy… yeah, *that* guy. For him, the Internet was not a means of anonymization, but rather just a way to spread the love.
Yeah, trying to flirt with the woman trying to arrest you; that’s a great plan
