The Darkness Before Creation!

I hear nothing but music...

So you must be a cat person/cat lover. Tell me how art thou befriend cats? Especially them street cats that look cute or clean enough to touch? So thou might stroke and pat them.

I have a love/ hate thing with cats.

Street cats are hard to pet or approach on account that they run away from approaching humans. Plus, you never know what communicable diseases they have.

After what Marcelin did Princess Bubblegum, is she new Princess of Candy Kingdom now? In your short fancomic of cours.

Nah, it’s more a what-if thing. I didn’t think beyond it.

I'm not even familiarized with the game that much, but when I saw it I thought of the Blades Alex Mercer and James Heller 'have' in Prototype and Prototype 2. They seem technorganic enough for me to see a resemblance between them. That's just me though...

I’ve seen Prototype, but it wasn’t a factor in it.

Think David Cronenberg and Videodrome body horror weaponry :)

Is Legend of Korra getting better or worse? Because it's starting to feature really dark themes, I can't tell if the show's actually declining in quality or if it's so profound that a mere mortal like myself can't appreciate its "depth".

Darker themes aren’t necessarily bad. They only get bad if the tonal shifts are too jarring or that it’s handled clumsily.

I still like Legend of Korra and its lore and characters, but it still doesn’t measure up to Legend of Aang in mixing mature themes with child-like wonder for the world. LoK feels stuffy, like having nasal congestion while swimming in foam.

And it’s not really profound either. If you want profound, you’re best off watching Carl Sagan’s “Cosmos”. It’s the kind of profound that regular folks can appreciate.

How do you think AT is going to change with Pen Ward leaving? I noticed a lot of changes after Rebecca Sugar left and I wonder how much more the cartoon is going to change.

AT will be fine. Pen has been grooming Adam “Billy” Muto to replace him and a majority of character and story arcs have been written by the team, not Pen. In the 5+ seasons, Pen has rarely written an episode (if at all), but he has acted as consultant.

AT is like a kid who has grown up and left home to study college or work elsewhere, and Pen, as most parents try to be, hope for the best in their offspring.

Mein mentor! It's been a while since I sent you an ask, not to sound weird saying that. But I've been wondering,does the work you do in real life garner the same satisfaction as the work you post here? Is it true that every creation possesses the same amount of potential in the eyes of their creator, even if they may not yield the same volume of attention?

My work is… different. These few months I’ve been doing Editorial work and now I’m pushing our department to start to implement some level of UX Design. As luck would have it, I’m the only one with knowledge of it.

So yeah, while I’m satisfied with both parts of my life I do miss interacting with you guys. But I do my best to pop in now and again like a waving snail.

Of course. Things only gain value if people place value on it.

And value is not determined by the quantity of people who pay attention to it. A kickstarter potato salad may have been funded, but it doesn’t mean it had value.

Flame Princess broke up with Finn and went with Cinnamon Bun instead. What would Flambo think and how would he respond to such news?

It was confirmed in SDCC (I think) that FP and CB are not together. If, hypothetically, they are together, Flambo wouldn’t really care. He didn’t have an opinion when Finn and FP were together, right? 

In regards to the question about the Ice King and Simon being the same/separate entities, I feel like the two must be separate on some level. We've seen in Finn The Human that the crown has a mind of its own, and that the entity within it affects people differently. Personally, I believe that the crown is a force of destruction/chaos, but that force is tempered by/clashes with Simon's inherently kind nature and force of will.

Yeap, true true. The fact that Simon has glasses similar to Pen is a duality of Pen the creative madman (Ice King) that gave birth to Adventure Time as opposed to Pen the nerd who just wants to nerd over cool stuff for fun’s sake.

Simon’s exhaustion with being Ice King is another reflection of Pen walking away from his show.

Headcanon/prediction time!: Bronwyn, KKW's daughter, winds up a lot like Jake: a free spirited yet lazy young girl who doesn't like to be tied down by work and what not. She's got the same loyal lovig heart as Jake but the same ridiculously short attention span. KKW never outright objects to it but it does slightly worry him/bring back painful memories. After Ocarina, he learns to not let his daughter's behavior bother him as much just as he learned the same with his father
