Mad-Mutt wrote:All I can gather is that she's meant as a rival for Buttercup. But she seems more like a punching bag. Buttercup has already shown that she can wipe the floor with Sam and she can do it without even trying. If Buttercup was going all out, Sam would be nothing but an oddly colored puddle with metal chunks floating in it. Even in the one instance when it looked like Sam had the upper hand it wouldn't have mattered I think because I still say Jack's sword wouldn't have harmed Buttercup.
I'm with you on that. However I have the up most confidants in BR. Either joy or sorrow, I think we'll one of those by the time this is all over.Mad-Mutt wrote: Frankly I want to feel something when a character dies be it sadness, joy or rage. Anything but nothing.
Mad-Mutt wrote:There are so many characters running around now that its kind of hard to keep track. I blame the part from before BeeAre took over for that. Hell, most of the problems I have with PPGD are from before BeeAre took over.
Mad-Mutt wrote: I suppose there is some sympathy to be felt for Sammy. She's kind of a falure in this comic and she doesn't stand a chance against her "rival".
Mad-Mutt wrote:Bubbles and Buttercup in the context of this comic feel like more interesting characters in this comic and they've been taking mostly a back seat to Blossom's and Dexter's trainwreck of a relationship.
Mad-Mutt wrote:Holy shit that turned into a ramble. Sorry about that.
I'm just a weirdo who does that sometimes.

Hell, in my story Death isn't even that much of a roadbump. For better or worse, they'll be back. You can bet your ass on it. I use death- not as a finale... but more as a framing device for story telling.Havoc751 wrote:The matter of when a character dies, depends on how important you wish for them to be, plot-wise.
If this were to happen, I hope it won't be what I think... which is transformation into something grotesque and off-putting. Possibly going even more insane and becoming less 'character' and more 'monster that has to die because it's ugly.'Havoc751 wrote:I agree with everything you said there. But I have to wonder if Samantha has some sort of "final form". Something to give Buttercup a run for her money. Maybe Sam will put up a good fight before she dies, and make this not feel so one sided.
Well, Sugar Bits was the clusterfuckiest thing I've ever seen Bleed make, Grim Tales got pretty close at one point, now we are going kind of linear in its story... and the first saga of PPGD was kind of all over the place for the first couple of chapters, while Bleed was still establishing the characters and giving them all their backstories at the same time.Havoc751 wrote:This clusterfuck approach is kinda the norm for a fanfic. Granted I haven't really read that many fanfics in the past. Also this is (from what I can gather from GT as of late) the norm for Bleed. But as long as it all ties in together in the end, I'm okay with it.
I think he means- and I do feel that it's more the fact that a character with not that many motives, a personality that hasn't been fleshed out and a rivalry she completely failed to keep from being one sided is about to be simply killed off without accomplishing even a single thing in her entire career in this comic is kind of sympathetic.Havoc751 wrote:At this point, getting her ass kicked doesn't really make her that 'sympathetic' in my book.
It could mean many things. The world could be destroyed... or... uh... well that's about the highest echelon of shit dying I can think of. There's no guarantee that the world, the people in it and the heroes that protect them are all going to live through this event.Havoc751 wrote:Wait, what do you mean by that?
