Okay Here's Some Of Ben's Ideas
Posted 15 September 2010 - 09:23 PM
I just wanted to tell you that the hardest thing I've faced
Wasn't the teasing or the pain
It was convincing myself I wasn't stupid, strange, or lame
And helping others do the same.

As for Ben's ideas, I'm intrigued by all of them. Definitely diggin' the building of Sonic and Nicole's buddy cop relationship from "The Void", and while the concept of a living mind inside a computer's shell is indeed as old as science-fiction, this is the first time I've seen it applied to Nicole, and the specifics of the idea do sound intriguing. I also think Ben and I are on the same wavelength regarding Sonic: he's a good-hearted guy, but he's going to have to grow up eventually, and it strikes me as a perfect plot to have that maturity forced on Sonic by finally getting the freedom he fought for.

And in regards to why the animals survive:
So you still have overlanders to put into the story when the time is right. There would also probably be overland survivors from the great war.

Wait, are you that crazy woman who insisted Tails is a girl?
If I remember correctly around the same time she wrote that, there seemed to be a lot of female Tails art around here (Or at least from Chalrca...I think she called hers "Tailsko?") and I think Nique was on the bandwagon for it (She didn't draw anything herself, but I think she was a fan of the idea).

The story would've been worth to continue (it had Nack! Explosions! We'd planned Many Murdered Mobians! And creepy factories working with brain-bits! Robotnik being creepy about Metal Sonic!) but these days I'm very much busy with Traces of Chaos.
Personally I'm fine with posting it, but I'm not sure how Cionex would feel about that - he dealt with my inks, which were HORRIBLE back then. (These days I do the colouring myself, so I dropped alot of habbits that make a colorist go batty.)
Anyway, I dig the "Nicole's an upload of a proper human idea", despite the fact that the sci-fie writer at me balks at the concept that a) a hivemind would HAVE to be something bad (for a well done beign hivemind, see Mars in the webcomic "A Miracle of Science" ) and that she'd be incapable to find a solution that doesn't include sacrificing her own personality.
On the other hand, it's a pretty deep concept for a movie aimed at younger audiences, and I always loved the Nicole/Sonic interactions. Even if Sonic's a douche.

While I'm on the subject, John, why did you say Tails should be a girl? I can understand fan girls emasculating their favourite characters, but us dudes got to stick together, dawg.

However if you were to go and slap the creators of Enterprise and tell them that they will ruin everything... That would be alright.

...I mean I dunno. You look at Sailor Moon which was and still is vastly more popular than SatAM and has been off air for a few years and there's talk of an international revival. I don't know SatAM was that big to begin with but like I said, it's been 16 years, and yeah...there's like only 2 main SatAM sites. You would need a lot more than just that to get it back.

[22:12] <Swriter> I think my phrasing was "might." Pardon me for fudging, but until all hope is extinguished - I'll not spill the beans on the (who knows if it will happen?) third season
[22:13] <Swriter> There's always hope.
[22:13] <Swriter> At least until I croak. Then, I could care less. LOL
[22:13] <SSNWadmanKiddo> If there's always hope, then that means logically we'll never see the spilled beans.
[22:13] <Swriter> JK
[22:14] <Swriter> Nah. I actually have a storyline and copious notes - and now with your question, I'll add to my will that they be released.
What we've seen so far doesn't seem "copious," so is there more you just haven't gotten to yet, or could there be undiscovered notes somewhere in his personal files? Do you know if this actually did get mentioned in his will?
I also keep remembering this ironic/prophetic story he shared with us in 2005:
So, I've decided that after I finish the two projects I'm working on, I'm going to explore the possibilities of pursuing the third season or the movie one last time. If I succeed, then good. If I fail, then I gave it my all. Three fans (sworn to secrecy) know there is a third option and that will be revealed if all else fails.
I take it you, Kanshisha, and his brother are the three fans. What was this last resort plan? A profic?
ALSO also, regarding Robotnik's backstory, I found a little more for anyone who didn't know or had forgotten:
Meanwhile, back on Earth, a nuclear holocaust had destroyed human life as we knew it - and the animals who survived mutated into sentient beings and built the society which you see in the form of Mobius. Einstein's ideas of the passage of time during faster-than-light space travel kick in and thousands of years have passed by the time Julian and Snively returned to find this "Animal" world. Well, Julian's thought was that in the land of the four-pawed critters, the two-handed man is king and so he set about to take over - as outlined in Blast to the Past.
All taken from here. Pretty good refresher.
