Ah....Fair enough. I saw a maria robotnik story on youtube but the people who was reading it kept repeatedly swearing over the story and I saw that the cover picture said the website at the bottom.
(Yeah you probably wouldn't really care about that but I wanted to type it. BTW, I am SO sorry about the late reply, I've been busy with coursework so I don't have time to check my messages and continue my NiGHTS fanfic)
XDXD Nice one. You see, I remembered way back in the early years of my childhood, there was this AWESOME cartoon named ChalkZone, and one of the villains was this crazy newslady with a HUGE hairdo, and so I thought "no one speaks of that woman anymore, I should do something about it". So I made Newsflesh both to represent media corruption, and that character.
LOL! I actually remember seeing that show when I was smaller. I hadn't heard a word of it for years till you said the name, and I guess it didn't click till after I searched "Calkzone" on Google. Heh heh... I remember that nutty-newslady now.
*Is about to ask something when Dash suddenly leaps onto my shoulder, hanging onto me as if she was a Pickachu* Dash: What made you want to use Missingnumber in your Poke-Crossover? Me: Speaking of that, did you have any other plot ideas for "Journey?"
Well, Missing Number came from an episode of Atop the Fourth Wall, an internet review show about comic books with a story line on its own. Linkara, the protagonist, was facing off against an "Entity" emitting weird shrieks through reality and consuming people all over the globe, and then he discovered it was MissingNo, but a version of it from another reality, which was an outer god who wanted to become existence itself, and he had a whole theme of static going on with him, which is what inspired me for MissingNo's texture.
As for Journey, no, it was a fight with MissingNo through and through.
Flavio is an avatar, but he's my interpretation of a minority among teens, the usual daydreamer, the nerd, the geek. And like his character line suggest, he's basically what happens when you give a bystander a major role and develop him well enough to be likable and, if I succeeded in it, relatable.
Doc is based off the concept of the new generation. Teenagers doing more and more in society and young adults mastering more complicated works and jobs than how it used to be. Character-wise, he's meant to be a good influence for Shadow, as well as a father figure to make him more sympathetic, but also making him stronger.
And Seymour is the future generation, what's to come. Controlling technology represents how immersed children are nowadays into computers and the internet, and his love for the Beatles is a respect and admiration for the past decades (that and the band is pretty darn good). He is also a key balance for Ryan's character.
