    Poor, sexy Socket

    Shit like this is exactly why I’d never create a robot for that purpose, even if I had the money and the technology. No need to spread one’s misery to others.

      Surprisingly kind and responsible from a rando on the internet. Most folks I’ve met through the screen would be total dicks.

        You are very correct

    I mean, it makes sense. He wanted a companion only for the robot to be gay. Of course he would be frustrated all that work for nothing. He didn’t even do anything to her and gave her something else to do and eventually set her free. That’s probably the best way to handle the situation.

    Imagine trying to build your own waifu, she takes one look at you and tells you that she’s gay.

    I wonder if whoever created Socket thought “If you really love someone, you have to let her go.” before he vanished. Maybe he was thinking about how her feelings, rather then his own at that time…still, I feel bad for poor Socket and whoever made her…but at least Socket living her own life…her own way…and not by her code.

    Not sure if it’s possible…but will we ever meet Socket’s creator one day in the series?

  7. Gin says:

    LOL, wasn’t she created to be a love interest (like, by the author in the real world)?
    I can’t remember when she was introduced into the story.

    How did he not know the personality core would be gay? Was it because he got from some shady source or something?

    1. Gulle says:

      It is implied the personality cores are essentially a person’s entire mental state copied to a computer, so it could just be a core based on a closeted individual. Either way, this comic is going to cover the moral and logistical aspects of the cores in the near-ish future anyway, so we may get a canonical answer soon.

      1. Gulle says:

        *Likely going to cover the moral and logical aspects

        It’s not garunteed but it seems like it’s headed that direction.

  10. Toadlover404 says:

    I’ve started to wonder what personality cores look like, especially after hearing them being mentioned a few times in this comic.

  11. Gulle says:

    “I just wanted to forget that the only reason I exist was so I could be a love interest.” Wow… That’s a powerful line. And not to take away from the story or the emotions portrayed, but isn’t that getting a bit meta too?

    SOCKET: I have the BEST topic of conversation to bring up on our first date! This’ll go great!

    Oh man… that’s tough… ),:

    That’s rough. But as someone that knows something about having a past you’re not proud of, maybe you can reassure her that what matters is who she is now and what she wants to do.

  15. Daybreaker7 says:

    Oh man…poor Socket.

    Poor Socket.
    Although… all things considered it did end well for her. In a way. Purpose behind her creation might be… questionable. But her creator at least had enough conscience to care for her, and eventually set her free to let her live as she would see fit. It could end worse.
