    Unhappy The Population Series - Under New Management



    Because it was rapidly overtaking the general fanfic thread and people started noticing.

    No links to the individual fics in this series as they were originally posted, because all of them can be found on the special Population archive.

    Guest authors more than welcome. And I guess we might as well keep the Population-based artworks here, too?

    Woo! New thread.

    I hate to post something as boring as this after awesome arts, but I've been thinking about some of the shirt symbols.

    Ferris: A cross. Probably forced to wear it by his mother as part of the whole 'Jesus' thing.

    Dylan: A bird's talon, in memory of his dad's alternate future self bro.

    The Captor twins: Yin and Yang, Yin for the one that gets all cool half the time, and Yang for the one that is depressed half the time.

    Yay! Shula! Then I read the line "one night stand" and I started crying.

    Hmm, this could go either way. Generally, Yang represents light and energy, and Yin represents darkness and emptiness. To use the analogy of a cup, Yang is the cup itself, while Yin is the empty space that makes the cup useful. So for the Yin-Yang symbol to work, one twin would have to be energetic in nature, while the other would have to be passive. The idea I had for these two was that they were both energetic and exciteable (Yang) half the time, while the other half they were subdued (Yin), albeit in different ways. One is just a chill motherfucker (or at least it tries to be), while the other tends to beat up on itself a lot and languish in emotional darkness. So, the question would be, which of those Yin-states is more energetic, and which is more passive?

    I think about this stuff too much.

    I clearly can't tell my Yin from my Yang because I thought Yang was the dark one.

    Re: The Population Series - Kawa's After The End AU

    I finally got my ideas together and just finished a memolog. It involves Nepeta being sent to figure out why Vriska is offline, while Terezi and Gamzee fight fifty humans.

    Nonlethally.

    It's just not done yet. Ofcourse, if you feel like finishing what you started, just tell me and this thing'll never leave the laptop.

    Um there is a slight problem with Gamzee getting off on insanity charges.

    If such was to happen then the guy would be stuck in a asylum until he was considered cured.

    Meaning he could listen to ICP and not freak out, or a similar scenario.

    As such Gamzee should be stuck in the happy home for the entirety of his life.

    If such a verdict was declared at-least.

    Aha, but you forget: since he's an alien, certain things just can't apply by default, and he's perfectly okay while stoned. The ICP just pissed him off to such incredible, never seen before heights that his sopor buzz couldn't contain it. It's when he's sober that he's what anybody would consider "insane". The ICP problem is pretty much resolved by clownicide.

    Also, IANAL and did not do the research. I just felt like writing a courtroom story.

    Notice how Terezi doesn't start properly studying Earth law until later in canon.

    Re: The Population Series - Kawa's After The End AU

    I've been doing more thinking about the Captor twins. Still needs some work, so this: (?); means I'm not 100% satisfied with it.

    Name: Carter(?) Captor



    Name: Parker (?) Captor


    I didn't know if I should put this on the wiki without clearing it with someone first, so I put it here.

    As for their names, the only excuse I can think of for such human-sounding names is that Feferi wanted to help them ease into human culture, because troll-human integration and cooperation is something she always works toward.

    I also hesitate to put them as moirails, because, while it wouldn't involve reproduction, I'm still not sure of the paler relationships count as incest or not. I don't think they do, but I'm not totally sure how troll would react to this unique situation.

    edit: Alright then.

    Carter Parker

    To the courtroom verdict:
    Remember, these are telepathic alien demigods in the future.

    I can of at least six ways that's not a continuity error.
    After a complete reread, there is no greater feeling than clicking the link, and seeing that there are no more links to click.

    Re: The Population Series - Kawa's After The End AU

    I like that, ToreadorTornado. It sounds good! The problem I can think of would be that they would most likely be yellow-bloods rather than sea dwellers. Since magenta is such a rare blood color, it would make sense for it to be highly recessive. Then again, sea dwellers are cool, so whatever!

    Re: The Population Series - Kawa's After The End AU

    Yeah, I wasn't really sure what to do about their blood color. On one hand, Aquatic blood would logically be highly recessive. On the other, it has some possibility considering Feferi's the mother, it'd be a stretch but Sollux could have the genes. Of course the real reason is that Purple mixes the red and blue of Sollux's eyes.

    edit: Also, I have no idea how I would go about putting up and making the Twin's pages on the Trollopedia. Help would be appreciated in that regard.

    Also, is the land where the trolls live still a part of the USA? maybe they just extradited(?) him in "troll-land" and don't bother with him as long as he stay there (which he is perfectly happy to.)

    And now, a short follow-up to "Interspecies Shenanigans" that I might extend some time in the future.

    Based on the above, drawn before final approval. I also inserted it into the archived copy.

    OH MY GOD THAT IS BEAUTIFUL.

    And thanks to that freaking "You are the zombies" line, I'm imagining Dylan being stuck joining one of the trolls in some sort of FLARP-esque situation and being forced to play a zombie since he's human.

    What has been imagined. Cannot leave my mind. You jackass.
