Roommates 104 - Life Support by AsheRhyder Roommates 104 - Life Support by AsheRhyder
What is really important when you die in the story? And what does it mean to know that, somewhere, you're already gone?


Welcome to the "Killed for Canon" meeting. I tried to stick with characters I figured would be recognizable in my art style. This is by no means the last we'll see of the dead guys.

*Yes, I know that Spike and Captain America did come back, but they were kind of iconic, so I let it slide.

RENT lyrics belong to Larson.
Nathan belongs to Smith, Zdunich, and Bousman.
Boromir belongs to Tolkien.
Spike belongs to Whedon and Marsters.
Dustfinger belongs to Funke.
Snape belongs to Rowling.
Teatime belongs to Pratchett.
Mercutio belongs to Shakespeare.
Wash belongs to Whedon.
Captain America belongs to Simon, Kirby, and Marvel.

Luckily a lot of those guys came back so life may continue. Though Mercutio and Boromir are greatly missed in their stories.

o.o Was Dustfinger always that bishounen? I thought he was a homely dude in his fourties.

I was mostly working with the version from the movie, since I'd seen that and not read the books (guilty admission).

I observe that Whedon is responsible for two of them....he really has a thing for killing off characters XD. I also sadly admit that I only recognised Snape and Capt.....

I picture Spike going up to Nathan and being like "Giles?" And Nathan would be like "What? Who?" And Spike messing with him.

Yes, yes it would. Nathan would probably get really frustrated not being able to kill Spike in his conventional ways...I don't know what Spike would do...

I recognized Snape and Dustfinger immediately. Both are favorites of mine. I feel sad that Fenoglio wrote that Dustfinger died, and when Dustfinger willingly chose death to save Farid... my heart wept with sadness. Snape... I realized too late that he, really was, everything the Snape lovers thought he was right from the start. In retrospect, he was the first "Phantom" I ever knew, before I even knew what POTO was, and I feel bad that I didn't realize that sooner.

Once you get the feel of the pattern, it takes active subversion to not pick up on it regularly.
