This is me from the future,
looking back on this comic and just now noticing the charging booth in the room behind Socket
gotta say, i fuckin love these comics
(Read all the way from 1 to 147 in less than two hours and all i can say is y e s.)
Why she need go in?
I’m actually curious. Are androids made of a shockingly light metal? Or are they actually fairly heavy? Also, I can see Pivot’s… rotund, lower half potentially causing issues in the future on some reconnaissance missions.
Like in vents and such I mean.
son hechos de silicona and this coment you see in spainish or english? its for a experiment
ok in spainish but i can say its are made with silicon
Honestly, the ‘What, are your walls plastered with pictures of me or something?’ ‘What?! No! IT’S NOT THAT!’ ‘oh god they actually are..’ ‘NO!’ should be put into a meme format…
somebody please tell me that the building Socket lives in is called the Robot Arms Apartments
“Luxury apartments, with charm.”
“Greasy walls… Rickety bed… Crazy neighbours… I LOVE IT!”
Not what I, nor anybody else for that matter, expected, but ok. This is a twist that I’m ok with.
i think a departament but no a departament atomic not for explote its for the very little of her for me its a troll face in part of zedrin
da waifu needs some… Bender of futurama obvius for the apartament in another aspect, Pivot clean he bedroom (I feel identificate with Pivot in this aspect why… to me dont like clean my bedroom why i have things that i not have memory wheres they were kept)but wheres sleep da best waifu?
I feel like I had a stroke reading this
Well her name is socket. Obviously she’d have some empty space. Get it?
I don’t think thats what they meant
i dont know why but i have memory of the monster of water of infinity train tullip let in her body in a joke for adults that its the reason why i think that
ummm well its a recomendation im rusian that know a small part of english sorry for my english of shit but i like of the text selectionable for the i will traduct the page the text of the comic its on rusian but i not problem with english only is cost of me that idiom 🙁
Don’t worry you speak English better than most Americans i know
It was explained in page 39 and 42 that “cycle regulators” are a thing. These devices cause robots that have them (like Socket and probably Pivot) to need to sleep and implies that they need some level of comfort in order to do so considering Pivot was tired after spending a night on a couch.
In the back that’s ether a Murphy bed or a door with drop steps to a possible flower garden?
Huh…Anon thought that was closet and dresser combo.
Maybe the bed slides out of that bottom drawer and the closet actually has clothes, since we know Socket likes clothes and owns a small assortment of outfits.
Remember how she once said she slept/recharged standing up? The closet is probably for her different outfits one power outlet and that’s it.
Or what if it’s a portal to Narnia?
Anon finds your idea intriguing and wishes to subscribe to your newsletter.
…Anon thinks it’s a portal to where Socket gets all her cosplay outfits maybe probably.
Portal to the cosmetic center.
0_0 huh, I should’ve figured it’d be an apartment, but it’s a lot more grey then I thought it’d be… it looks like someones gonna have to go shopping for a few shelves, plants, tables…and posters. 🙂
aww, she’s like a gamer who just had a really nice pc rig and clothes and maybe a bed and nothing else
I’m reminded of a Codec conversation between Rose and Jack, where she said that his room looked like a prison cell with how sparse and spartan it was.
Pivot? Time to breathe a little life into your girlfriend’s home. The poor thing needs it.
Or Socket could just move in with Pivot
Socket’s room is empty! Like her heart!
oh that hurts. 🙁
the best appartement, at least ist bigger that one at Paris
Uh, well. This is literally a bare bones room isn’t it.
R A T T L E M E B O N E S
*Rattle *Rattle Rattle * Rattle
Your bones have been rattled. They can never be un-rattled
Well, *I* want to see walls plastered with pictures of Pivot, so I hope that is the right answer.
Well, I got two PV02 posters, not exactly a whole bunch plastered, but the merch does help give some life in my room. 🙂
Me: ………… *looks at Socket* Hello Uraraka-chan, how are yoooou?~
(If you don’t get it, look up the dorm room episode of MHA)
In all seriousness: Okay Pivot, time to help your bae here decorate her room.
Ok but why?
Let’s be real… With what money?
Yep. She does have a built-in storage mode after all…
…What’s the point in hiding nothing?
There’s nothing in the apartment. So what does she have to hide?
She was trying to hide the nothing in the nothingness of her apartment. So basically, she’s trying to hide the fact that her apartment is barren lol
She has to hide the bodies.
“What are all these dead bodies doing here?!”
“Honestly not much…”
“…I’m calling the police.”
I don’t see the issue, this is just the normal New York apartment size.
…oh. Ohhhhh. Ohhhhh.
Now I get it
…I love how Pivot came to the same conclusion as some of you other folks though XD
Socket’s apartment seems atheist for how small it is ._.
Do you mean “aesthetic“ because atheist just means a nonbeliever or like does not think that a God/gods exists and aesthetic is a term use in describing how things look.
I think the word they were looking for may have been “Spartan.”
Do you mean ascetic?
Well, I suppose in many ways, Socket’s apartment makes sense. According to prior comics, it would seem that andriods have only recently gotten personal rights and freedoms and so there very well may be landlords who would redline their new robotic tenants. Plus, According to what has been previously said, andriods don’t sleep, they power down without need for comfort and due to them not needing sustenance (aside from Socket since she’s a custom unit), they wouldn’t need a kitchenette. I wouldn’t be surprised if in this world, andriod apartments look like a 3m by 3m box with a wall outlet and that Pivot is the exception to the rule, living in an ‘organics’ apartment because of her unique personality matrix being an imprint of a human.
Socket’s place looks fine and basic to me.
I know it’s highly unlikely, but I’m kinda getting “Bender’s apartment” vibes. (From Futurama, where his apartment is the size of a closet and his “closet” is like the size of an actual apartment.)
Exactly what I was thinking! It was such a good show. He might have drawn inspiration from it, although the robot apartments in Futurama are literally a 3′ x 3′ box, this one seems much larger.
Based on the overhead view from the next comic, it looks around 6×6′.
Already expected nothing at her apartment and got nothing. Nice.
It makes sense since nobody ever really asks to hang out at her apartment and she doesn’t need furniture to survive at all.
I would have thought she would at least have a bed since robots like her and Pivot actually have to “sleep” like a human. And since Socket is a companion model, she couldn’t just zonk out leaning against the wall next to the wall plug, she would actually need somewhere comfy like a bed.
I would like to forward you to Page 114.
Socket specifically said she was built with a storage mode when sleeping. Meaning she can stand upright while asleep.
Pivot get your girlfriend a bed. One big enough for the two of you.
