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?

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 he doesn’t know or react on her. So seeds are more important than textiles?

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.
