    I can't imagine that Dave would leave any child of his eye's unshaded. It's a beautiful family tradition.
    Is her symbol ok-looking? I was really debating on what to use for it. Also, what should her name be?

    That "Contest" story painted beautiful and ridiculous pictures inside my head.

    > Enter Name - Liv Tyler.

    That name doesn't even make sense!!

    > Enter Name - Dee Jay "DJ" Strider

    Your name is Dee Jay Strider.

    cuz in mah headcanon her parents are Dave and Jade.

    Edit: Just realized the six letter name, so that means that if you ship DaveXTerezi, the name still works for you.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    I call her Maggie.
    Even though I ship DaveTerezi. Maggie might be Jade's, might be Terezi's - hell, she might belong to another woman Dave had an affair with.
    He never told her in the future.

    But, all I know is she's fun to write for and doodle. Look at her cute mug.

    I use the different text styles to show how she'll change her voice with her mood.

    Personally I like the name Deandra. Andra means manly, and Deandra is a common variant of it.

    I personally support Maggie just to go with the obvious who's the superhero theme we've had going on. Also those faces are awesome. xD

    Though it makes me think that maybe it's not Jade or Terezi but Nepeta!
    Yes.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    My design for her.



    She has pale skin and the hat/shades to keep her genetic mother ambiguous. I also imagine her as using a good chunk of the Strider fortune to invest in cosmetic technology at the genetic level just to make herself hotter. Ironically of course. (though she secretly wants to impress RoseXJohn's son who is completely oblivious to all forms of romance)

    Draw some Magpie/CrowBoob, we've all become obsessed with her recently.

    Aahhh Wigmund Magpie is so ridiculously blatant, I love it.
    Anyways, calling yourself Maggie when your superhero name is Magpie is pretty obvious....

    ...but her wildly different styles of dress make up for it, I think.

    And 'womanly wiles' are hardly Dave's teaching area of expertise.

    Well, as long as we can force ourselves to stop drawing her/writing about her, we don't have to worry about that happening.

    Also she'd only become a Mary Sue if we made her too powerful. Making her sexy and people noticing it is not enough to make her a Mary Sue. She's just gotta be a total klutz.

    I don't know, klutziness alone usually isn't enough to keep someone from being a Mary-Sue. It actually kind of makes characters more endearing in some cases.

    Superheroes that are klutzes are endearing, yes, but they usually cannot do their job without fucking up in some way. That is how klutziness will eliminate her being a Mary Sue.

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    If we want to take a break from this Magpie discussion, there's something I had just wanted to draw since I thought of it last night. Pretty much every cop show eventually has to do the whole "cop goes undercover as a hooker" plot, but if a certain other cop AU taught me anything, it's infinitely funnier when the cop doing so is a guy. And since I have no idea where this'd go in writing and would probably just be a DOUBLE K ripoff anyway...



    Ugh crappy sorry...Maybe this was just an excuse to draw Sollux in drag. THE WORLD MAY NEVER KNOW.
    Ach! Hans, run! It's the lhurgoyf!

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    Any of you know Squirrel Girl? She's a Marvel superheroine with the power of talking to squirrels, near-Spiderman levels of strength/agility, medium awareness, ability to talk through the fourth wall, and battleship-class plot armor. She has defeated Doctor Doom (several times), MODOK, Fing Fang Foom, Deadpool (who is a mean, mean man!), Thanos, Baron Mondo, Ego the Living Planet, and many more, all by herself and her squirrels.

    This is about as Mary Sue as you can get, but it is awesome, so the readers tend to let Marvel get away with her. The point being here, if they can do something like that, why can't you guys?

    Re: TROLL!COPS: The AU

    I can see where HarM is coming from; she's from the future, the kid of one of the 'main characters,' has a lot of future hi-tech, is really badass... Sounds like the recipe for a Sue to me. :/
    On the subject of klutziness, don't over do it, otherwise we go Anti-Sue, which can be just as bad.
    It just means we have to be careful depicting her.
    Hopefully the fic I planned to put her end won't depict her as a Sue.

    Anyway, part two of my current fic: (part one is here)

    S.E.E.ing Double: part 2

    @KOACD: Very nice, very funny
    @CrepuscularDissembler: So many colors! With such a nice contrast between alter egos, no one will suspect!
    @FieryBlacksmith: Writing a 'good' Mary Sue is hard and careful work and even if we pull it off, not everyone is pleased with the result. I know quite a few people who can't stand Squirrel Girl. I think we shouldn't actively try to cultivate a Mary Sue, but to each their own.

    Clearly we must add and subtract from this equation.

    Techwise, how about she just has the glider and the beamsword, and she totally derped and forgot to bring future batteries for the sword so she is forced to have a hiltKind specibus.
    Also, I thought she only TRIED to be badass, but whenever showed any discipline it completely throws her off her game and has no idea what to do. That's what the story showed me.
    And of course we wouldn't overdo the klutziness. Just enough to make it obvious that she has flaws.

    EDIT: ...in retrospect, we just give her Dave's forgetfulness and Jade's occasional derpyness and we're good. We don't need the klutziness.

    Pro tip: dropping the word "klutz" is pretty much cruise control for Mary Sue.
