Roommates 275 - Game by AsheRhyder Roommates 275 - Game by AsheRhyder
In which two tricksters play the Oldest Game,

OR,

In which the levels of absurdity reach critical mass.


The Game mentioned here has also appeared in Sandman (Gaiman), but for those of you who haven't read it, it boils down to a game of wits: a challenge of versus. As evident by the reappearance of tequila, this is probably not the best of games for two tricksters to play, as eventually they will both lose.

On a less literary note, yeah, yeah, I caved and added Loki. He wasn't in this arc originally, so this one is all on you guys. Next week, we'll finally get to the page for which I drew this entire arc. (Amusingly enough, that page has been penciled since May. It only took me... all summer to get to it.)

Also, happy birthday! Sorry it's belated, best I could do; am actually really far behind right now.


... Jeeze, that's a lot of notes...

Jareth belongs to Henson, Lucas, and Bowie.
Loki, Thor, and Hawkeye belong to Lee, Lieber, Kirby, Heck, Marvel, Hiddleston, Hemsworth, and Renner.
Legolas belongs to Tolkien.
Nyancat belongs to Torres.
Waitress belongs to the birthday girl.

It shows up in an issue of The Sandman by Neil Gaiman. It's basically a game of wits, trying to trump and stump your opponent. When the supernatural gets involved, it becomes a bit... extreme.

I love that one with Thor, and Loki (the movie one in this sense) is of great interest to me.

It's basically one-up-manship. I don't think it has a formal name (aside from the Game, or the Old Game), but it seems to be an expanded version of 'anything you can do I can do better.'

I had totally forgotten about this. I just saw the Avengers and I felt so bad for Loki. anybody else notice that weird thing where loki' s eyes were blue instead of green? I thinks that he was being controlled. but I disn't know whether to laugh or feel sorry for him when Hulk ragdolled him. that whimper! I died. what's the game?

It's basically a one-upmanship game. Coming up with something to trump the thing the last person just came up with.

You don't understand the feels this gives me. I love Jareth and Loki more than any gay girl should. I literally started to choke on air and cry and the beauty that is them in the first two panels. oh mein gott. I think I died. And then the lolz out the background. I should just turn off the computer and be done forever.

Okay, then I won't do that xD

But I literally couldn't even function after that, so I turned it off and went to bed.
