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?
