no, we just call her 'PX' because no one can remember her full name:


actually, i guess we should be calling her 'fb' because px is her model number (which would cover a whole class of fembots) and not her serial number (which would be hers alone).


"Fib"? Wink

No, "Fab," much better.

I was just thinking we could call her "Mod" because that's the first syllable of her name.

However, as was noted, Tange calling her "PX" constitutes the only "individual" name she's been given so far, so calling her PX seems the simplest approach until she receives a more definitive name, much like we used to refer to Tange as "Pebbles" because that was the only name that anyone had ever addressed her by until the "Tange" name was revealed.

And considering that it took us nearly three years to get that and we still don't know the name of Monique's Fangirl after more than two years -- we call her "Minique" because it's convenient and arguably cute -- I suspect that "PX" is all we'll get for a while yet. Wink

Wow "Minique" isn't canon? I thought it was haha.

nah lol. she hasn't been referred to anything other than a fangirl, so far. but minique is a cute pun so it caught on rather quickly.

I happened to stumble across this strip which, if we stretched a point, could be relevant.


http://sinfest.net/view.php?date=2013-11-07

We could theorize from Panel 1 that Minique's (nick)name is "Hi" and Abby is, in effect, saying "Hello, Heidi" or "Hello, Hiroko" or "Hello, Hydrangea" OSLT instead of simply saying both "Hello" and a redundant "Hi" -- but I don't expect such a notion to catch on. Wink

One of the meanings of "Hiroko" is "wise child," btw. I just found that out.

That's a cute idea, but I think it's more that she wanted Minique's attention, then once she had it she felt the need to give another salutation.

It just seems to be a verbal quirk; she does it quite a bit.

Nerves, I'd wager. She's not the most calm character in the strip, and she had a lot of reason to be nervous. Which the speech pattern sort of alludes to, I'd say.

And she wants to be polite and nice, too.

Well, I said I didn't expect the idea to catch on, didn't I? Wink

(whispers "i think the idea of her name being hiroko is super cute tho" gently in the distance)

I wonder if even Monique knows her fangirl's name or if she's on the same "hey you" basis that everyone's on with Tange.

The fact that Tange was surprised to realize that she didn't know her own name (and technically, the fact that we know her name doesn't necessarily mean that she knows it even now; yes, she saw it in her memories but she might not have made the connection yet; she's not the quickest wheel on the road) means that no one had ever asked her before. Not even her roommate Li'l E or her next-door neighbor and (in her own mind, at least) second best pal, Seymour.

Obviously the, for lack of a better term, Main Cast Neighborhood is a very laid-back environment.

Hopefully Theo (Tat's fanboy), at least, knows Minique's name; after all, she knows his.

===

Off-topic (what, again?), it occurred to me that Tat needs to give Fuchsia her own individual "Day in the Life" strip (which always starts with the featured character getting out of bed), if for no other reason than to show us where she sleeps. Seriously, she left Stately Devil Manor over two years ago, has she really been living under that tree ever since? Crim is too nice a guy not to have helped her find a room somewhere.

Wait, I yet again stand corrected, Tange does indeed know her own name now:


http://sinfest.net/view.php?date=2014-05-23

It looks like Tange carved both her and Li'l E's "marks." I'd presume everyone else in the strip still thinks of Li'l E as "Li'l E" but since no one else has addressed him by name in years, I can't be sure.

On an only tangential note, anybody else remember this one?
