Roommates 287 - Consume by AsheRhyder Roommates 287 - Consume by AsheRhyder
In which Odin is disappointed,

OR

In which something wicked this way comes.


Who is the child made of shadow? Here's a hint: the one thing every character ever written, played, sung about, or dreamed about has to fear.


Erik belongs to Leroux and Webber.
Norrington belongs to Disney, Bruckheimer, and Davenport.
Javert belongs to Hugo, Boublil, Schonberg, and Kretzmer.
Erlkönig, Odin, and Arthur Pendragon are mythological characters and belong to everyone and no one.
??? belongs to ???

1.) Odin I do believe you spoke too soon.

2.) Poor Erlkonig looks rather concerned

3.) Jareth; it was not wise at all.

Ah, well I return to this page after finishing the arc, and I'm a little disappointed that it wasn't Pride / Selim. But Disbelief as a villain was a good concept, nonetheless.

...Is there such a mythological character as "Failure"? Because even apathetic characters fear failure.
Or maybe the child is Fear itself.
I dunno, I'll find out in the next comic, lol.

I'm not reading ahead or to any future comics right now, so I have no idea if this is correct, but.....

My first thought is Pride (from FMA). Though I guess he had dark hair, didn't he?

Oh I was just making a Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood reference. There is an evil character who has control over shadows and has the appearance of a small child. The protagonists of the series figure out that he cannot do anything without light so they surround him with complete darkness. By the way I was just wondering exactly who the child was in your comic.

-P.S. Big fan of the comic, almost every time a new tenant shows up I get excited because I am usually a huge fan of wherever they come from. I was also wondering if you and Pika have any system as to how the comics fit together?

:iconasherhyder:
AsheRhyder Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ahhh... I had not seen that part.

There's not really any system, though on occasion one of us will message the other and ask if they intend to do something with an idea so we don't contradict each other too much when it comes to the big story lines. I'm particularly bad with memory, though, and often forget little things, like how Legolas is generally comic relief in hers.

I know you probably get asked this all the time, but how did you come up with this idea? I mean what gave you the idea to put all these characters together?

My friends and I used to joke that, between stories, all the characters we created for various games and stories would hang out in bars. (Given that we were all horrifically angsty writers, we figured the characters could use some down time...) If you go back all the way to the pre-Roommates comics, they're hanging out in that bar. The first comic even mentions it, if I recall correctly.

Going from what I know of Pitch at this point? Pitch would have a problem with him too.

BelleLorage Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
(I thought of Pitch because, in the books that the movie is based on, he is made by the "dark side" of the Guardians that he was watching over and then later, consumed him.)

So, WOW! Really?
I am so curious to what its going to be now. I mean, a creature made of the shadows, the "legends" of such great figures can be up to no good.


I love all your story arcs, btw. You have an outstanding imagination.

I hope it will please you to know that last night I dreamed it was Monday and I rushed to read the next page of Roommates because I would be able to find out who the shadow kid is, only to wake up right before I was able to.
