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 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?

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.
