Roommates 11 - Redemption by AsheRhyder Roommates 11 - Redemption by AsheRhyder
Things begin to settle down again in the apartment building, though not for long.

Norrington's monologue is derived from the realization that, while I like redemptive characters, very few of them actually survive their redemption. (Actually, very few of my favorite characters survive, period...)


Erik belongs to Leroux and Webber.
Jareth belongs to Henson, Lucas, and Bowie.
Norrington belongs to Disney and Bruckheimer
Javert belongs to Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer.

I know the feeling. In fact, at least half of my favorite characters die in their shows/movies, and for the most part, they don' t get happy endings either... :'(
Just a few of the things that happen to them:
Anakin Skywalker: Became Darth Vader, died of electrocution during his redemption, and became a ghost (my favorite scene actually)
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Let himself be cut down by Darth Vader (and those two used be best friends!) and became a ghost
Damon Salvatore: Currently trapped on May 10, 1994 
Erik: You know the rest...
eesh.

Anyways, this is very funny! And Jareth needs to learn to shut up. Keep punching him, Erik!

Erik: "Bad enough he suggests I move to Nashville and become the 'Phantom of the Opry...'"

The only redemptive character who survived for a good while as he made his amends was Valjean, and even then, the musical and probably a good number of the movies cut his years making amends out, so he's pretty much convict one day, saint and mayor the next.

Can I tell you this comic changed how I wrote redemption arcs and redeeming heroes and redemption in general?

I really really like how Javert isn't looking up at all. He doesn't need to add anything, as James is doing the explanations that apply to both of them (and lots of other characters).

I'm becoming sold on Jareth and his own foot / boot as a OTP.  Brilliant drawing of that punch!

You know what this scene reminds me of? King of the Hill. You know how they always show the guys standing against the fence in a row drinking beer and just talking about random shit? Exact same idea only replace the booze with something more "refined" (i.e. tea)

It's a bit harder to market "redemption = death" when the cast is all kids...

Justin Bieber and the Jonas Brothers.  That will make it easier to market the "death" part.

That was accidental. Javert is the only proper lefty in the group, though it has some significance to Jareth later on.

Ironically, Javert is from a play that is entirely about redemption and literally spending years and years making amends. From Valjean's perspective, at least.

I've just been re-reading this -rather than doing the essay on genre differences in 30's hollywood that's due tomorrow- and this is possably my favorite so far. "I blame the opera personally" it's just fantastic.
