Ask me anything, I fucking dare you
The BCB cast (or at least the main 6) are all in an airplane when it suddenly pitches downward and will most certainly crash. With only a couple minutes before impact and certain death, what would they do or say to eachother?
I will do it with the thought of the main six being on the plane and no other supporting character.
Lucy would want to pursue Mike but Paulo would stop her so he could hug her and sob about how much he loves her and that he's so much better than Mike in every way. So they would hold eachother and Lucy will die knowing someone at least liked her. David would have kicked Paulo towards her because prior to that I figure he would be stressing about Jasmine but he really wanted to finalize it with Lucy.
Daisy would want to see Mike, but would stay with Abbey and comfort him as they cry together because she doesn't want his last moments to be.. you know, Daisy ditching him. Ha.
Mike would be by himself and just contemplate and think and pray and let the others have their moments. He figures that's the least he could do.
But I think David would ultimately grab everyone up to form a group to hug each other and say goodbye and have like a last bro time together rather than everyone be curled up and moping amongst pairs. BIG OL' NAKAMA HUG
Yo Taeshi, if BCB was a darker and grittier world and it took place in a prison with the same cast, what would each cast member be in jail for?
what a fantastic question hahahahhahahah
Lucy is in jail for domestic violence, in need of anger management.
Mike got blackmailed and killed a man in crazy self-defense. (I seriously can't imagine mike committing a crime unless he was forced into it)
Paulo got into a gang and was caught in a gang fight, alongside trying to deal drugs.
David wanted to be Lupin III but unfortunately he's daft and was caught during a heist.
Augustus for being Augustus (robbery, etc)
Abbey embezzled from the corrupt corporate he works for.
Daisy was peer pressured into robbing a clothing store.
Jasmine blew up an abortion clinic.
Sue blew up Jasmine's lobbying group.
Jessica killed Tess because of all the slander.
Rachel is a prostitute.
Katie stole jewelry and was the one that pressured Daisy to steal.
Stacy was LARPing and accidentally stabbed her team mate.
Amaya refused to cooperate with police investigations.
If you had the power to reach through the internet to slap people, how quickly about your hands get sore?
Sore? No. I would strike them until the bone structure in my hand resembles the Kuiper Belt. I would hit them until the flesh falls from my hand, use their faces as grindstones and stab them in their orbital sockets with the sharpened tip of bone where the rest of my arm used to be.
Lets pretend that zombies are attacking. You've just escaped some only to see that your hubby was bitten. He is already delirious with fever from the bite. Do you shoot him in the head now, or wait until he turns and risk getting bitten yourself?
i am going to kill you
I'm a sucker for romance, care to tell me/us about your first date with SuitCase (unless you've answered on here already)?
It was in 2005 and my mother and Joe thought it would be better to cart us off to see a movie by ourselves because it was Thanksgiving night and we already ate and there was really nothing else to do except watch boring football.
My mother dolled me up and they admittedly left us in a really cruddy theatre with no good movies playing. We ended up watching.. oh man I don't even remember the movie.
Anyway it was just a bad movie and we were the only ones there, like the theatre was EMPTY. Obviously because of Thanksgiving, but yeah. Souppy and I.. fooled around :-[ It was pretty awesome. Maybe that's why I don't really remember the movie that much ha
um... hi? have you ever had a time at your subway job when a bcb fan has walked into the shop and seen your nametag and been all like omg! also, why do you hate bcb ocs so much? if i were as cool as you then i would be honoured that people would want ocs
1. Never! I did meet a girl I initially met at Subway at a convention though. Turns out she read my comic. It was pretty awesome haha.
2. You would probably have a point if not for the fact that there was once a time I accepted fancharacters, this is something you should have noted in the earlier chapters when I was adding them into the cast left right and center. Characters like Tess, Carter, Kizuna, McCain and so forth were pretty regular, and I had no problem adding them in cameos and even having them interact with characters. At the time, I felt it was the least I could do. It felt like I needed to do it, not discriminating and stuff.
However, people sought to abuse those good intentions.
I began getting lots of fancharacters and feeling guilt at the necessity of having to include them even though they became more and more absurd. I had a person threaten to take down their artwork if their tiger fancharacter was not added to the story, one example to note. I chose to ignore it feigning ignorance to the situation, but it was getting to a point where all the fanart I was getting was nothing but fancharacters trying to get into the story.
In the case of Kizuna, there was a backstory I was requested from the creator to include in the comic which was completely bizarre and more Higurashi-oriented than any of the "typical high school drama" scenarios my characters faced. The only character close to that kind of torment is Abbey, and even then there isn't really brutal murder or japanese mafias involved. At all. I refused to add that backstory, choosing to keep Kizuna as a gag character like how I've perceived her.
I was told to remove her, which I obliged to do and planned to do it quietly. Unfortunately I had a lot of buffer at the time, and Kizuna was in some of the pages. I did warn the creator about that, but she spoke up about Kizuna being in a page causing public awareness that I was going to remove her. In came the requests to give her a "great farewell" and nagging about why I was getting rid of her. Hence the Simpsons-inspired gag comic I did.
That honestly gave me red lights into what I was doing. I also felt it cheapened the story a lot to have all these characters getting directly involved in the story. Cameos are all well and good, but it becomes a problem especially in the case of printing books and feeling paranoid about any sort of potential drama with that.
Anyway, the final reason I put a negative stance on fancharacters was because of the growing reaction of them from the community. People began to introduce their fancharacters in the community, making stories about them, and basically just riding on the coattails of my success. That might sound pretty selfish of me to say, but to be fairly honest I'd be much happier if people rode on the coattails of my success via original work or pure fancomics. It becomes less "hey I drew you fanart to commemorate your work" and more "this is the new chapter of my story with Blaze the dog and his many adventures in the bcb world time for my character to become a minor celebrity."
That upset me. It felt pretty unfair. Especially because some of that began to ride into people's perception of canon. So not only am I getting fanart that is basically just people trying to become popular within the community with their fancharacter, but people began drawing fanart of that character pretending that their world was canon to mine. Fanart like LarkenxAmaya and PauloxMelody bothers me for that reason. Those pairings are impossible. It's funny if people wanna draw it, but when they seriously ship it it gets absurd because the person is just looking for disappointment and flooding my canon with their fancanon. Then it causes confusion. We get people asking who Liam is or who Larken is or thinking Kou is so cool that he should be in the comic!!!!!
A lot of it rides on my sense of guilt and desire to please the audience (Which I can't if they support impossible shippings like LarkenxAmaya and hope I include that in the comic), and a lot of it also rides of me feeling a bit cheated out because it becomes less fanart and more trying to get the character involved in my comic. It's a vicious cycle then. Especially when I used to want to praise some fancharacters, and then get other people making characters hoping they could be the next Tess. That isn't going to happen again. I learned from my mistakes and it's something I learned for future projects.
http://www.bittersweetcandybowl.com/forum/topic/214-the-phancharacter-menace/ I'm rambling now and getting annoyed, but if you want a read about this drama, you can read this. It's probably good for the first few pages but then it becomes stupid. But yeah, my stance is now that I completely ignore fancharacters and pretend they don't exist. If I see one, I just click back. I think fancharacter creation is something I can't stop. It annoys me, but it's unavoidable. And rather than get mad about it, I just won't acknowledge it.
I'll smile at this because I've gotten people asking me about fancharacters.
