Roommates 207 - Immutable by AsheRhyder Roommates 207 - Immutable by AsheRhyder
In which the artist almost didn't post this, because it's probably one of the darkest things to happen in Roommates,

OR

In which a SPOILER says SPOILER to his SPOILER.


Not for the weak of heart, heart sick, or anyone who wants a laugh.

SPOILERS:







Buck is Tallahassee's young (and by young, I'm estimating four years old, tops) son.

ETA: My media player continues to be psychic: the first full song that comes on after I post this? Eric Clapton's "Tears in Heaven".
THINK ABOUT IT.


Tallahassee belongs to Wernick, Reese, and Harrelson.

re-read this page about five or six times with a sad face, read a comment about how the song "Tears in Heaven" was written by Eric Clapton for his young son that fell off a third floor balcony and died, put the song on out of curiosity, reread the page while listening and tears came out....
:iconcryforeverplz: good job.

one question, though, why is it that Buck is still dead while James and Javert are only dead in canon?

The same reason why Uncle Ben (Spiderman) the parents of Bruce Wayne (Batman) etc. don't come back either no matter how cheap death is in comic books. Their death is integral part of someone's character. At least Roommates is selfaware about it.

Because the universe is a cruel, cruel place -

In actuality, it's because Buck being dead is a subtle but defining point of Tallahassee's character - immutable because without that breaking point, he wouldn't be Tallahassee (he'd probably be some zombie's lunch). James and Javert died in canon, but it was not the defining point of their character. It's the same reason why Jareth still has villainous tendencies (or at least highly Orange and Blue Morality) and why Erik can never actually get his face fixed, despite adapting to all the other modern technology (which was going to be this other long arc, but I decided to do Such Stuff instead, which turned out much longer and darker and more confusing than intended).

I'm definitely tearing up. The Buck part of Z-land always gets to me. Puppy and boy both. I can see why Tal was hoping that his boy could come back in a place like that. :( *shuffles off to cry*

.....that is damnably sad... Especially since even the deus ex machina that is roommates can't get his son back.
Now I either want to cry or rant to try and not cry. ^^; But seriously. The main cast come back from the dead... though I don't think a four year old would have the same ability to mentally handle the meta stuff that goes on... But it would be nice for Tallahassee. T.T

It would be like bringing back Batman's parents. If Batman has parents, then he's not Batman anymore. He's just Bruce Wayne. It's what makes him who he is. If you change that you lose the character we know and love.

This didn't strike me as dark, just really, really, really sad. Mainly because here we see death that is permanent in the 'Verse, as opposed to the fairly tongue-in-cheek treatment of James.

That's actually something I'd love to see explored more sometime; the idea of someone being angry that the dead-in-canon-but-not-in-Roommates characters are up and walking around, while their loved one who is dead-dead-dead would not be. I dunno, this idea just intrigues me so very much. Plot bunnies galore, I say.

Ow...now now now....ok, I am not much of a crying person, really, I donīt like to, and I find it hard to do actually, but....that song, according to me, written by Eric Clapton to his dead young son...I used just to like it, because of the music, but once, being with my father, in the car, waiting, this song started so he told me right before the lyrics started to sound, the story of the song, that the little boy fell from a roof or a 3rd floor (canīt remember) and died, and then I heard the lyrics for the 1st time...couldnīt help it, I cried during the whole song...Now every time I hear the song or even remember it, I picture the little boy, as my own, laughing and running around, just there, happy..and suddenly, the boy in the ground, blood coming out from itīs head and heīs not breathing....Darn, and the feeling of the knot in my throat...Awww, really a sad and touchy moment..ok enough! (sorry for my trauma, but just felt like sharing).
Hope the manīs alright...yeah........

I don't know Tallahassee, but my heart hurts a little for him. I wish he'd gotten his miracle, but... canon or no canon, magic and wishful thinking only get you so far if you want to have any kind of believabilility. Daddy loves you still, Buck.
