* {{Denouement}}

to:

* DesignatedVillain: In strip #599, Tailsteak admits in-universe that he pigeonholed Junior as one of these and that he apologizes for stifling his character development by doing so.

{{Denouement}}


Added DiffLines:

* SelfDeprecation:
** Tailsteak takes plenty of jabs at his inability to draw, write characters, and poor sense of humor.
** His characters join in self-depreciation as well. For instance, in strip #903:
--> '''Mock''': You know what we've never had? The 'explanation' punchline. You know, like a situation unfolds in the first few panels that is stupid... ...and then, in the last panel, we see one character explaining it to someone else. "And that's when I killed him." Like it was all a flashback. We never have that comic structure.
--> ({{beat}})
--> '''Petitus''': That's because we aren't funny.

* OhCrap: Mock releases a stream of these in strip 863 when Marcus suggests that the reason why Junior hadn't moved in 30 pages is that he made a DecoyGetaway.

* GeekPhysiques: When Marcus asks Terra to describe Tailsteak's appearance in #486, she deduces that him, being a computer geek, must either be "really fat or really skinny".

As any good author will tell you, a good character is your worst enemy. If you are doing your job properly, you don't always know what they'll do; they'll write themselves, occasionally mess up your plans for long term plots, or break dramatic moments with idiotic questions. A good author doesn't control their characters--their characters control themselves. And that is what ''1/0'' hinges on--the characters are [[NoFourthWall aware]], and they don't always agree with Tailsteak.

* AuthorAvatar: Averted, just barely. Tailsteak talks to the characters on a regular basis, but [[TheVoice never appears in-panel]].

* FourthWall: Both literal and bad news--characters who no longer want to put up with Tailsteak's arbitrary rules can generate a personal FourthWall, which appears as tiny "4"s in their eyes. Ghanny loathes it and tries to break any fourth wall he encounters, [[spoiler:which turns into a plot point near the end--he's finally able to break through, but it's through blunt force (necessary, to help his friends in time) rather than witty repartee and debate. It's a bit of a hollow victory for the poor guy]].
