Episode Seven: How Did It Get Even More Confusing?
Now, since Episode Six is Lost Forever
, I'm not sure if the change in style was in that one, but since I can't bloginate it, I will just assume that the change was in this episode. What change? You'll see.
Well, first the title card is still the same, and now she isn't using the large text boxes! Hurrah! ...but, there's a fecal lining to anything in here, so, it turns out that the text boxes are the same color that's on-screen, making them nearly impossible to read in most cases. So, yes. It has gotten even worse
. My dad theorized that someone must have said "Those textboxes are way too fucking big." but instead of changing them, she does this. Making it hard to read. I know that the text is the same color of the character that's on-screen to indicate what they're saying, but if the character is on-screen, it's sort of already implied that they're talking when you put text over it! If we were say, in a clip with more than one character in it, or a character is talking off-screen, then a simple Character Name: Text.
would have sufficed.
Urgh... it hasn't even started yet.
Mephiles, if you're supposedly haunting Gothica's dreams and you want to intimidate her to make her do your bidding, then why are you in your Shadow form? Go into that inky form, or something! Ya think she'd be terrified of a nude pallet swap of her cursed form? Though, maybe, saying that he's her father justifies it. Speaking of her cursed form, she's made it look a bit more detailed by giving her clothes to make her a little bit less like a recolor. Even though it's still obvious. Oh, and one of the comments of the sixth, someone asked, "Why does Gothica have glasses now?" and the author responded, and I am quoting, "I put them there B cause I wear glasses".
If she has the same personality as her "creator", assuming that she even is supposed to have a personality at all, then the "author" has made her point that Gothica is an Author Avatar
Anyway, Gothica also seems to have a bell tied around her neck. Um... okay... also, the "creator" cannot spell continue. In fact, how about at the end of the series, I watch through all the episodes again to count how many words were misspelled! Why am I gonna do it again? Because I clearly have lost all senses, if you couldn't tell from the title!
I'm gonna count wrong punctuation too, like "don't be so shy?
" that wasn't a question! It's reminding me of the Picnicface NFL Crunchtime video, you know, "Choose the words, choose the tone! 'You're a bitch?'". In fact, how fucking slippery must your hands be to touch the ? button instead of the ! button? They are at the opposite ends of the keyboard! She had to try
to misspell that! Even if the typo was ? instead of ., with ? you have to hit the shift key, so it's still an unbelievable typo!
EDIT: Well, that was embarrassing. I seem to have hit the send button by accident.
Anywhoo, Sonic tries to say that he's not shy, and then boob-Kunckles basically says "GET ON WITH IT!" and Sonic does as commanded.
Then we cut to Maria in a flashback by Gothica. Just. Like. Mother. Fucking. Shadow.
Ugh.... so, she finds out that if she sleeps, she can basically project herself to Shadow and he can't hurt her while she's a projection but she can hurt him. Um, how exactly did you find that out, what logical sense does it make that a projected avatar can physically harm something on a different plane, this also adds another power as if she weren't already a big enough Mary Sue
, and OH HAI, EXPOSITION.
Now we find Black Rouge. Ya know? I don't think Knuckles or Rouge have been used yet, and they probably won't be in the future, so they've just been replaced with recolors. Yippie. You can't use existing characters, so you slap some colors on them and call them Bob, maybe even make them grow a vagina. Now, prepare yourself for a barrage of the worst creations MS Paint has ever spawned.
The first one is bad because it's the most simple thing you could possibly do with the program. Not to boast my huge cock at this tiny wiener, but I have made custom sprites on a program that's pretty much the same thing as MS Paint, and they look pretty good. That's not saying much, though. A turd covered in cockroaches is attractive when compared to this awful abomination that can barely be called a story. And now Gothica is wearing her old costume. Shadow, you are a huge-ass dick. You unfortunately know her? Seriously? What has she done to you in this story in the little screentime you share? Swear revenge on you for Maria's death? Yes, I know that it's stupid to blame you for something that you didn't want and didn't do, but you're the dick here! You turned her into a form that she didn't want to be in, sent her to the future, where she can never be with the guy that she was clearly interested in who had reciprocated the love, and you
say that you're
the one who has the bad luck to know her? There is no side to root for in this "conflict", because both are flat characters, though one's a Jerk Ass
, and the other's a Mary Sue
, so you have me rooting for the "villian"!
Also, Gothica's only reasoning for wanting revenge on Shadow are: 1. He's apparently responsible for Maria's death, which is BS. 2. He sent you to the future in a form that you hated, even though you are a shapeshifter and can also time-travel. Seriously, why are they fighting? Oh, yeah, because all the characters in here are dumber than sporks. Anyway, Gothica displays her use of CRYSTAL MAELSTROM! Nice use of a word, though I find it strange that you can spell "maelstrom", but not "go", maybe she just copy pasted from a thesaurus when she thought that "whirlpool" wasn't pretty enough for Gothica. Also, since when did she know how to do this? Did the exclusion of me seeing the sixth one really
have that much exposition? Nah, this is Writing by the Seat of Your Pants
, so it's most likely she just got New Powers as the Plot Demands
. Also, bringing back Kathy again, she has stronger Chaos Powers than Shadow, but it's because Black Doom personally trained her and fed her Chaos Drives since she was an infant. Also, she's slower than him and her Super Mode
is highly unstable and is incredibly painful for her, so she has things that stop her from being Shadow, but better!
Which is strange that my character who is Shadow's successor is less of a Mary Sue
Anyway, the image of Crystal Maelstrom is mediocre. Not that bad for the series, but again, that's not saying much. Shadow has his Oh, Crap!
moment, and then... the worst MS Paint creation ever. Really? You couldn't find a screenshot of Shadow falling so that you could draw crystals on him, so you make your own? The cuff on his shoe is larger than his hand.
It pretty much speaks for itself on how terrible it is. I cannot grasp the true suck of this. Oh, and notice that he's falling backwards, but in the next shot, he's face-down. PHYSICS!!
Is Shadow still alive?
Since he's been lodged with a shit-ton of crystal shards, he'd be deader than disco if you didn't ask that, and if the next episode weren't titled "Shadow Lives?/Return To Crisis City".
