The sheer madness of the Spawn is more reminiscent of Flandre, or maybe Sakuya on a bad day.

As I was reading this, I got a fairly clear image of what the Holistic Spawn look like. I'm not that good at drawing at all, but I just had to pen this one.

You would, if you had any left after seeing the blood plains, the hospital, and the giant emus.

That's a pretty good rendition, it preserves the original dwarf as well as warping them beyond belief.

I really need to get writing for Reudh again... when was the last post I made for the Reudh story? Some pages ago, I know that much.

I love the writers this thread produced/drew out. I love them so. No homo.
SCREW IT! ALL THE HOMO!!!

I had to say something. Terrahex, your portrayal of Rose is pure excellent. I just finished your seventh of the third. Splint, talvi, i'm so sucked in i'm gonna be awake til i'm caught up. Master, you rock so hard you broke the rock.

Xahnel, welcome back!! We'd been wondering where you'd gone.
After reading the tv tropes page, and the quotes section, my only question: how the hell has The Doctor not dropped into this story?
This is the one mess he'd never be able to fix.


We did hypothesize for a bit that Mr Frog could be a sort of "no conscience" version of The Doctor, but to our knowledge, The Doctor doesn't drink... Nor does he experiment on people... Turn them into cavies... Mess with people's minds... Create serrated disc launchers... I could go on for a while.


Cognitive - Excellent pic!! It makes a lot of sense with the way they're able to move with all limbs missing... Looks freakishly creepy, too. As to page 37... You have a good read ahead of you. A lot of it is filler fluff, or us getting into debates over things that seemed matters of life and death at the time... but the story develops dramatically in all directions.


Reudh - I'll get that for you. The archive is here, and your last post is here. I was rather rushed when putting everything in the archives, though, and I still need to come up with better names for your chapters.

And yeah, I would've loved it if The Master could've finished, too.


And... new front page quote. I'll get that up before I go to bed.

I think so too. Sounds like they're trying to trick Catten.

Edit: For the lulz: I got in touch with the person who made Reudh's favorite Mary Sue Litmus Test. She added #8, just for Rose:
8. Is your character strong enough to wield a huge weapon like a warhammer, giant gun, or huge sword, yet has a waifish figure instead of 'unattractive' bulging muscles?
that was a dirty dirty trick!

I'm flattered~ :D
EDIT: In fact, i'm gonna use one of the Faces of Frog, just cause i don't want them going to waste.

@Cognitive:

Pretty sure the chest-mouth is supposed to open sideways. At least, that's how it is in every other depiction I've seen.


@Xahnel:

Getting a new criterion added to the Mary Sue litmus test is not a good thing. It means that others found her irritating.

I would say it's happiness over getting to help other avoid a pit-fall.

And besides, it seems we've managed to salvage Rose.

I guess you've forgotten how odd i am, mr frog. Getting my own rule is something i find entertaining. Anyways, i've asked people to tell me when the have a problem with me, and i haven't had an ounce of contact, let alone complaints, in months.

It's not you they'd have a problem with but Rose, which seems to be a nonissue now since, while stilla relatively flat character has been done justice in the stories involving her. Who knows, maybe the others willd o more with her.

And glad to see you back man. Been quiet around here without ya.

@X:

Perhaps they just didn't want to confront you directly, to avoid a fight? I have reason to believe that others besides myself found her grating. For example, Splint just indirectly admitted twice to having had a problem with Rose; by saying she was salvaged, he's implying he disliked her at some point in the past.
