The Great Nitpicky Live Blog of El Goonish Shive
I suppose reading this liveblog is actually a way for me to read the comic by-proxy. I start to hate myself and the world around me when I read most webcomics, but with this one, I can read it FOR the snark that comes with it. As this is my first time actually reading it, I shall keep tabs of my reactions to the characters. So far:
- I despise Ted and everything that is associated with him. He brings NOTHING to the table so far. He's a personalityless void whose only dimension is "I HAVE TESTOSTERONE IN MY TESTICLES" so far.
- Sarah is also hateable, but not as much, if only for the fact that we've only seen her a few times.
- Elliot is the least hated so far. Almost likable. Almost. I can stand him. But he also seems to be very... Vanilla. There's not much to him besides being the main character.
AC said: ^ Wow, characterization really does march on. These descriptions don't match anyone... Except Elliot being the most "Vanilla" in the entire cast and he's technically not main character..... uh, AHR, just asking your opinion here but uh... Who's the main character? I just realized I have no idea.
Cakman: Well, pretty sure it's Elliot. Or at least that's who it's supposed to be at fir- HOLYSHIT YOU'RE NOT BLACK ANYMORE AC.
Here is my knowlege of the current cast: Someone has bunny ear hair. Someone has an opposite gender clone. There's gender switching at some point. I think there's superpowers involved.

You didn't comment on how much of a Mac Guffin the goo was. That kind of surprises me.
