Who should die?

Postby Nuke Mayhem » Tue Nov 16, 2004 12:46 am

What characters in the doujin do you think should die in future pages and chapters(you know to add drama, horror, suspence, and other kinds of stuff)?

That's a hard one to call. All these characters cater to different tastes, so eliminating them might hurt. But, then again we need more than non-stop fighting for an actual plot development.

Hmmm....as much as I love him, I think killing Mandark might add to the drama(Mandark is my favorite Dex character). Not only would it reconcile the whole DeeDee issue but it could extend into Dexter's psyche. I could totally see them finally becoming friends (possibly in honor of mutual love for DeeDee) and then Mandark dying and Dexter suffering even more.

I wouldn't want her to die but, wounding Tootie might also be an interesting development. I mean it could delve into the Timmy/Tootie shippiness and give Buttercup a reason to be emotional.

Maybe one of the RowdyRuff Boys but they are so popular.

I was also thinking of Dr. Wakeman or Sheldon (I love Sheldon). I'm a total supporter for the almost non-existant Sheldon/Jenny romance. It would be interesting to see how Jenny would react to losing her mother or her love. Hey, she might join the cluster.

What does everyone else think?

P.S.- love the Garfield comic strip. It's hilarious.

SheldonXjenny would only happen if she got it through his thick skull that he'd have to not pull the obessive stuff. If that happened, I can easily see them becoming a couple.

You will see a lot of random monsters get slaughtered here and there.

I suppose other characters should go dieing all over, howver DeeDee s death was somehow necessary to make the story simpler.

Otherwise maybe the Darkstar council become candidates, I really don t think it would be necessary to killl of anyone else... unless there is a certain need for it...

Maybe everyone should die. That would add alot of drama and suspence... until the following week when Bleedman reveals it as a joke/hoax.

I think that some one should be hospitalized instead of killed. That would add more drama really. Like have the person in a coma or something and have Grim sit by the bed just to make it more dramatic. I'm thinking maybe it could be Professor Utonium.

I really like this idea better. Death is so final, there is no where to go with it beyond grief and vengance. Horrible injury, whether a coma (as mentioned), or permanent disability (what happens if Otto is paralyzed?), allows for more varied and extended emotional responce.

As for being the big Prof. it would keep the series on track as a PPG doujinshi. Having too many side-plots running makes a story weaker (ask Robert Jordan).

However, in the end, it is the author (or artist)'s tale to tell. As long as the muse is singing, I will be listening.

The prof makes the most sense I guess, but does someone really need to DIE to make the story interesting?? The vast majority of the characters are children! CHILDREN for the love of grass!!!!

The PPG fight to save their city, dexter is a boy genius who has fought for similar reasons and gone through the death of who was quite possibly the person closest to him at the time, otto fixes the past to protect the future.....I think I listed most of the characters proving to be major in this chapter. Either way, these are kids who have seen and experienced some screwed up shit.

It is true that they are children, and they have already seen some ****ed up things in life.

However, you must have driving conflict for a successful story. Death and horrible injury is a way of providing that conflict. After all, would you want to read a story about your own first grade experience? I have a feeling it would be quite dry.

[Note: I use conflict here in the literary sense, i.e. "conflict = goal+obstacle". This is not fist-a-cuffs conflict.]

DeeDee's death is good enough... but i have had the idea of Dexter(sometime soon perhaps) has a nightmare where Blossom suffers a similar fate...

Maybe mandark will drain her for her chemical X or somthing...it has been done before, and it nearly killed her. Or maybe it will be her capture by Mandark, simply to hold her prisioner against Dexter. And then she tears up his lab.
"I saw it, there, in the sewers...for just a second. All hunched over, skin pale white beneath those rags...so many rags. The vermin crawled about his feet like idolaters at worship, and I swear that the wind drew breath in a frightened gasp at his passing. He wore cold like a cloak and I swear that behind that smiling golden mask he was laughing at me as his curved blade rose and fell, cutting through my men. It left wounds filled with crystals of salt...the screams...the screams...and the pants....Gods! The Pants!!!"

This would be the best way to keep conflict going and not have anyone die. Mandark would probably do this to Blossom somehow.

I know who should die, Kenny from South Park. We add Kenny(as like a background cameo or something) in one page of future chapter and get him killed in some way, and in the next chaper, we add him in a differant page, get him killed in a differant way, and so on and so on. :snoogins:
