Roommates 30 - Copy Machine by AsheRhyder Roommates 30 - Copy Machine by AsheRhyder
For those not familiar with the man in the second panel: Nikola Tesla, as played by David Bowie, appears in the book and movie The Prestige. In an effort to make a teleportation machine, he instead creates a machine that makes an exact duplicate of something, only some distance away. Apparently, he's been tinkering with it some.

This arc ends here; I'll leave it to your imaginations how (and if) any of the "copies" made it back to their original sources.

Coming next week: One of the most cracked out ideas I've had for the Roommates series. More than a little magic will be worked.


Full Credits for characters mentioned here:

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.

Dracula belongs to Stoker and Craven.
Andre Marek belongs to Crichton.
Leonidas belongs to Miller and Varley.
Steve belongs to Moffat.
Michael Colefield and Pearse Harman belong to Ahearne.
George Seurat belongs to himself and Sondheim.
Nikola Tesla belongs to himself, Priest, and Nolan.

Until I read this comic awhile back, I never realized Bowie played Tesla until that point....holy crap, it was like Captain America/Human Torch all over again. Hardly recognized the actor. Diverse! DIVERSE!

Nikola Tesla..did you have to remind me that my parents gave me a name for girls AND boys. You could have chosen so many characters..(Yes my name is Nikola and yes I'm a girl.)

I like to think that Javert and James did end up with an interesting wall in their apartment.
And that later on when that got messed up one or both of them at least attempted to have it replaced.

(Also, don't forget James Lapine!)

The image of them keeping a cork-board of memories is now stuck in my head. I don't know what they'd keep... (Jareth has the scrapbook, at least, but I can't picture either James or Javert scrapbooking...)

It's quite amazing. I find myself talking like the characters rather frequently. I have said word instead of cool several times now cause of Finn and thirty minutes ago at the grocery store I saw Easter candy and shouted oh my glob. It's one of my favorite shows.

Wow really? Then again, as a huge fan of the kid's show Adventure Time I shouldn't be surprised. I mean, I've heard AT characters use the words crap, crud, shut up, and sexy. I guess parents are beginning to coddle their children less. I always thought treating children like glass was silly, but I'm also a rennie so I'm biased. (Rennie: a person who participates in Renaissance Faires.)

Isn't general audiences a G rating? What with the slash/fanservice/Jamie with a harpoon in his gut, not sure I would rate this G. . .

Oddly enough, the children's graphic novel of At World's End shows James' impalement at an almost profile shot, so you see the harpoon coming out of his back.

As much as the idea of Ziggy Stardust, John Blaylocke, or Thomas Jerome Newton showing up that would almost have to turn this into an M rated comic. X rated if you've seen The Man Who Fell to Earth. (The book was astounding but unfortunately the only good things about the movie were Bowie's stellar performance despite being addicted to cocaine and seeing him naked. Hmm, put that way I guess they're even. *evil grin*)

The Prestige that is. It came out in the same year as The Illusionist, a favorite film of mine surrounding another magician by the name of Eisenheim, starring Edward Norton, Paul Giamatti, and Rufus Sewell.

I was a bit confused at first, because when I hear the name "Nikola Tesla" I immediately think of the vampirical version of him from the TV series "Sanctuary". ^^;
