Off Panel: SU #58 by kureejiilea Off Panel: SU #58 by kureejiilea
Yeah, I also had no idea that :icondawnbest: was cooking up a Titanic-themed variant cover for this arc... heh!

Sooo I don't want to get too "explaining the joke" here but apparently some people are mad because they took this strip as a dig against their favourite character and/or pairing, and that makes me sad because that was pretty much the opposite of my intention here. The idea is more that Blaze is annoyed that she's being portrayed as the typical fantasy magic-princess-who-has-to-be-rescued-by-her-true-love sort of thing. I don't really care about shipping or whatever here, but I do know that there are a lot of people who like the idea of Silver and Blaze as a couple. However, as they've never actually interacted or even met in the comics proper, I thought making Silver the "romantic prince" type here to Blaze's "fairytale princess" would be cute for those who like that pairing. Plus, adorkable Silver as this super suave prince-captain is fun. So much for that, I guess.

Gotta give props to Jen though for yet again nailing these alternate designs.

She'd probably wear a dress like that if it was dark purple.

Archie has a Nak for reading the fan's minds. For instance, in one story featuring Silver, he just flat-out yelled "I'm sick of everyone saying 'its no use'". (Which you'd have to play Sonic '06 to get that joke)

...PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT!  HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

That's too good!  It's INSANE how good this is!  I love scenes like this not only for their obvious comedy, but because they explore the characters in greater depth than the games do...sometimes even moreso than the comics.  The artwork nails everybody right on the head too!

This was my favorite Off Panel from Pirate Plunder Panic. I already guessed that Blaze was annoyed more at the princess costume than at Silver being part of Marine's fantasy. How serious did people expect this to be? It was thought up by MARINE.

I laughed (and I enjoyed their interactions in Sonic 06 so it was cool to see Silver and Blaze in Off-Panel.) The "anime bishie sparkle effect" is a nice touch. :clap:

Who wants to bet the second panel is is how Blaze reacted when she saw the scripts to Pirate Plunder Panic and found out she gets knocked out and captured twice in the same story?

Blaze: "Aw come on, AGAIN?!?! Archie, can you stop knocking me out all the time?!?! And I do NOT need Amy to save my ass all the time either!"

(burns the scripts)

Yardley: "AAAHHHHH NO! MY MAGNUM OPUS!!!"

Amy: "Aw Blaze, don't be such a killjoy!"

I thought it was kind of funny too, but when you try to please a few your bound to end up alienating others as well. I dont particular care for all the Blaze and Silver referncing in any of the Sonic mediums, it just reinforces stuff about the two characters thats not true because when people see it, they keep seeing to two characters and you know draw the most obvious conculsion.

It was a great off panel in fact, it portrayed Blaze perfectly in character. But the above^ statement is why IMO some individuals act like they got their juice boxes ripped out of their mouths:D (Big Grin) . They draw something from nothing and act likes its fact and sometimes you just cant do nothing about but sit back, read the comments, and laugh.

I think that there were a lot of things that made this Off Panel exponentially funnier than the usual , Silver looks hilarious Woohooooo! , Blaze's reaction is meme worthy, Marine as a fanfiction writer, and acknowledging stuff we only see in the fandom like "sinking ships" is something no one ever expects in an official comic, so kudos there for the courage of doing something unusual for our amusement. Nod

now, dear writer, I just ask you one thing, please, please, PLEASE, (please), keep the characters in-character , as you might know, SEGA describes Silver and Blaze as having a brother-sister dynamic and this is what most fans expect from official sources when we see them together (I mean, who wants to see Sonic and Tails as anything but brothers and partners? people love their dinamics) of course, there is the whole shipping fanbase who doesn't cares a lot about characterization because they only do it for the fun, but some fans just happen to be invested in the universe and the characters and they really take official characterization and continuity seriously,  so... out-of-character behavior might really be undesirable for most of them, but, just take care with the "easter eggs" when dealing with romantic stuff by making sure everybody is in-character and everything will end up fine. =D (Big Grin)

I don't think was offensive, really.

Silver and Blaze has a Brother and Sister releationship that Sega ALWAYS says, and people who ship them in romantic way are doing it just for the sake of shipping.

So don't mind them, It's really a funny off-panel. Don't let those people put you down =3

I thought it was more or less making fun of the more 'extreme' supporters of this particular shipping rather than a dig at the shipping itself, but I guess not everybody thinks the same way.

Oh dear. Well, I understood the joke at least.

I think I understand why they took it the wrong away as well though, must have focused on the "You sunk my ship!" line and thought it was about Blaze not liking being paired with Silver...even though Marine's story didn't mention anything about the fiance aside from the fact he existed. What can ya do sometimes, eh.
