Roommates 202 - CHAINSAW by AsheRhyder Roommates 202 - CHAINSAW by AsheRhyder
In which conclusions (and James) are jumped, in bad ways,


In which the artist realizes that people who have not seen Evil Dead may not get this one and will therefore explain.

For those of you who did not have access to the Evil Dead series, "Deadites" are spirits of the dead who either reanimate already dead bodies, or possess and corrupt the living. Ash, the guy with the chainsaw instead of a hand, is pretty much the expert in getting rid of them. What is important to know about deadites is that a.) They are extremely dangerous, highly mobile, and intelligent kind of undead who do not require a bite to "turn" you but can do so seemingly at will, b.) They are capable of looking "normal" for periods of time, especially to trick people into lowering their defenses, and c.) They talk, putting them above most other incarnations of zombies (excluding Pratchett's). They often taunt or play with their intended victims, and have been known to use sarcasm and something like irony.

Which is why Tallahassee and Ash interpret James' condition in the way they do.

Norrington belongs to Disney, Bruckheimer, and Davenport.
House belongs to Shore, Attanasio, Jacobs, and Laurie.
Ten belongs to Newman, Webber, Wilson, a long list of people, and Tennant.
Tallahassee belongs to Wernick, Reese, and Harrelson.
Ash belongs to Raimi, Spiegel, Raimi and Campbell.
Holmes and Watson belong to Doyle (and this version by Ritchie, Downey Jr., and Law)

Ahh the doctor jargon that no one (besides his companions who also don't get what he is saying at times) do not understand and I love this arc :D

"no shit sherlock" i bet he was waiting all day for a chance to say that LOl and i love how you shortened 10's speech.
AsheRhyder Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm glad you're enjoying!
AnaxErik4ever Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2013  Student Writer
Oh boy. This is either a great thing, a funny thing, or a bad thing. Probably all three. James already being dead in canon I mean.
HolyMaiden Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I just realized something, now that I'm back on this page. Shouldn't Erik count among the dead? Considering he dies in the novel?
AsheRhyder Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I think it's all of the main guys except Jareth that count...
KJPearl Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2012
It was literally "no $#!# Sherlock". Priceless line.

It wouldn't hurt anyone to for once try to listen, but again, Ash seems the hot tempered one

...So... James won't turn into a zombie? (slow.)
Taragonra Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
I literally fell of my chair laughing at this one. I love the way you do the Doctor, not everyone can keep him in character this well. Umm Doctor? They not listening and seeing as how you hate violence you might want to sonic the chains saws so they turn off.
TheBasketKid Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2012
The second-last panel is so funny, I fell off my chair.
FractalBlaze Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2011
Hm, these Deadites sound fascinating. I shall soon check out this Evil Dead series. ^^

Yeah for deadites being included!

*notes down all the doctor says*
Hey, you've got to pay attention at least once with that man, it may come in useful later.
missrotem Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2011
^^; I totally forgot James was already dead...... So I guess him turning into a brain eating zombie is unlikely.....

*loves the no shit sherlock comment* XD
makkura-umi Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2011
Yeah, "No shit, Sherlock" is so well-placed, haha.

I feel like I've noticed an improvement in your drawing with this arc. The faces in some particular panels just look great! :D

Also, it's fine if you don't plan for it to continue, but I am sooo happy to see Ten in this comic, haha. :heart:

That made my day. Just sayin'. The way you draw 10 is wonderful.

I was also rather behind on the whole 'Deadite' thing...thanks for explaining.

Oh dear, no I need to go track down that soundtrack, "Goddammit Ash, I picked up that skank drunk in a bar three days ago!"

I enjoyed... so much of this page, I can't even say it all. :D

Except for this part, I will say this part:

RomanceFreak Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks for explaining the Evil Dead. I never read it before. Aaaaaack! Deadites do that?!? And you don't know even if your best friend is a deadite?!?! SCARY!! No wonder Talahassee and Ash are freaking out!!!

speaksis2 Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2011
I watched Army of Darkness for the first time yesterday, and it made Ash's chainsaw hand make so much more sense. I have yet to see the rest of the Evil Dead series though...

I can almost see the characters from "Fido" coming in with their 50's household mannerisms and shooting all the zombies. With their training and if they have those collars to put around the zombies, they'd give all the characters quite a shock. Not to mention a few zombie servants.
Angel-of-Dawn Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2011
Thank you for the definition of deadites, I was wondering what it means. In addition, speaking about the dead, what happens to the zombies? >>;

It seems they stop ever since the group got together.
heartnoir666 Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2011
Yay! Now all we need is for James to not get hit by the chainsaw.....or fall off the roof dodging!
GingerAdventures Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I always gets so happy whenever you update, so this week you have made me super happy by posting so much :D Though I do hope you don't overwork yourself to get all these pages out. Anyways, great update and I can't wait for the next one <3<3
sab1ne Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2011
lol at House and Ten trying to help (or something) and being no use at all against CHAINSAW.

also squee for Holmes & Watson!!
GarnetWings Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2011
Considering T & A's cannon, their reaction.... makes sense.
But none the less! JAMES! Dodge man!
MarissaSunshine Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2011  Hobbyist Filmographer
I may not have seen Evil Dead, because I kinda avoid gore; but I knew that bite wouldn't infect him because he was dead in canon. It was actually pretty obvious from the start.
MegeraBowenson Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2011
Oh, thank god.

Now if only Ash would stop attacking...

DOCTOR! COULD YOU PLEASE HELP!!? (sorry for caps lock.) ;D
Granian Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Dr. Ten, some actual problem-fixing instead of fixation would be most helpful at the moment . . .
OverlordK Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2011
I sorta figured that/ hoped since certain characters are canonically dead this would happen to not be affected because they are technically zombies.
InYuJi Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2011  Professional General Artist
well the doctor is just rambling on. :music: Every day I'm ram-bl-ing :music:
GryphonFledgling Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2011
Oh, I have the most horrible hunch about that horrible thing you are going to do to Tallahassee. So very horrible.

So, just to get this straight: dead characters in canon are actually dead in the Building 'verse too, what with a lack of vital signs and everything, but still functioning? I mean, that's how I'm interpreting this.

I love all the different canons trying to mash themselves together. I'm sure it creates a huge headache writing, but it's fun to pick at and watch and try to make sense of.
AsheRhyder Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's a very complicated mix of Schrodinger's cat, Pratchett's variation on Schrodinger's cat, and a half-comprehension of Rosencrantz and Gilderstern are dead. Most of it fails to make sense when attempted to be stuffed into words.
GryphonFledgling Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2011
I think I just fell in love with you. It's impossible because I was already in love with you, but...
