Hmmm. Google Translate says "Have fun with the dust woman."

Centcomm 29th Jul 2012, 9:47 PM edit delete reply

Thats pretty much the direct english translation the term in english is "duster" ...

Yeah, got that.

German is such a nice language. Pity, that it's grammar is so horrible complex.

Also, in German you could easily say "Stauber" or "Staubler". "Staubfrau" sound so much like a "professionelle Reinigungskraft".

Its future german? hey that was our excuse on the latin.. none of us actually speak it .
Centcomm 11th Dec 2012, 5:43 AM edit delete reply

ok what Zopia is actually saying is " haev fun with the Duster " our german sucks :P

Heh. My impression of the intent from Fairportfan's translation is "have fun with the ice queen" implying that Dolly's too focused on her mission to be able to open up and enjoy the pleasure :P

" to open up and enjoy the pleasure" That can be taken SO many ways... lol

One of the things (admittedly minor because the story is good) that attracted me to the webcomic was the fact that German was used.

Ich habe gehofft, dass ich mein Deutsch geuebt koennte.

I apologise for any inaccuracies.

I'm pretty sure "Staubfrau" is not a good translation for "duster". "Staubfrau" would really just read like "dust woman", which could be understood as a woman doing the dusting, or a woman made out of dust; or it *could* be a woman living *in* the dust, which would be quite descriptive, but not have any of the pejorative connotation of calling someone a duster...

Actual translations for duster depend on the exact type -- it could be "Staubbesen" (for something broom-like), or "Staubtuch"/"Staublappen" (for some kind of cloth), or -- my preference in this context -- "Staubwedel", which is a feather duster.

Regardless of the translation accuracy (word drift over time, etc), I first read the word as 'Stabfrau'.

Which I thought was a hilarious name for Dolly.

I feel like the likely translation in modern German would be staubererin. Just "dust" with a feminine ending. But my German is extremely minimal.

Late to the party, but German native speaker. “Staubererin” is horribly wrong. “Stauberin” would be a tad better but still bad.
“Staubwedel” was a funny suggestion that would even work in German, since just “Stauber/Staubler” (male) and “Stauberin/Staublerin“ (female) sounds awkward.
“Staubi” or “Staubl” (Bavarian) would work, but is more like a friendly nickname.
While dust is “Staub”, I can’t think of a good derogative for someone living in it.
Based on “Wüste” (desert) you could say “Wüstling” (brute/lecher), but it doesn’t work female.
Ok, “Staubling” fits. It’s also quite gender neutral. If you need a female derogative, “Staublingsfrau” or “Staubweib” is passable; in this surroundings you would probably rather use something vulgar as “Staubfotze” (dust cunt).

See how much better a little communication makes things.
Now Mr. Breaker is going to have to exert himself.
Even 'Ms. Badluck' gets some relief!*

Bubblegum? Does she want to chew and blow CeCe?

That sounds so much worse now that I've said it.
Centcomm 30th Jul 2012, 12:23 PM edit delete reply

heheh - thats funny...
velvetsanity 10th Apr 2013, 5:54 AM edit delete reply

she means it as something along the lines of "teenybopper"
Stormwind13 7th Oct 2013, 7:28 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, someone needs to have a LONG talk with CentComm. Sending a weaponized CeCi out into the wilds and not even tell her she IS weaponized... Bad, CentComm. No cookies for you! Dolly will be coming to DISCUSS this with you.

They'll be in trouble soon using data-speak so often while in the company of others esp. here with other androids. Like they don't have audio-sensors and recorders for un-human frequencies.

If they get to where all roads proverbially lead to, everyone will already know that Dolly is 'droid and working for Cent...

Several pages seem to be missing here from when you reorganized the pages. The story skips ahead. I clearly remember several more pages with Dr. Silver and Mr. Nova, where Mr. Nova assigns an escort to take Dr. Silver to her destination and then a small glimpse of his ulterior motive.
Centcomm 20th Apr 2015, 5:40 PM edit delete reply

actually thats all there was of that.. there are no missing pages :D :D
