I was new to the question game as an answerer-writer, & the first time
I put up this slate of characters, 9 September, no one responded. So I reused them, 8 January
. Then I got responses.
Then I didn't respond.
I hurt myself by my selection of characters. It was pretty much random, incorporating characters from old sitcoms as well as manga & such, & I didn't really think it through. So I have one character from the 19th Century, one from the far future, & one from the 1950's. And one of the first questions I was working on put the 19th Century character with the far-future character, so I had the 19th Century character travel forward in time to the far future. But then I had to have far future guy come back & deal with present-day characters. So then the story had to change.

misterandersen's questions in general just broke my brain.
At some point I realized that to answer some of these questions I was going to have to look up something in the last Suicide Squad arc before the series ended, Kim Yale died, and
Bad Dan Raspler returned to his home planet
. But my SS issues were no longer in their own shoebox, & I didn't dig them out until March 23.
One major thing that distracted me, after some important real-life deadlines, was starting to play Warflow, a curiously demanding little game that I suspect to have been designed to diminish Yankee productivity as part of a Xanatos Gambit. I don't know what the end point is. Maybe driving the USA into inflation will weaken the holdings of the Beijing government & allow some advancement into power of a former outsider as "economic savior." Or it's just a way for a small group of game designers to make money selling in-game gold to Yanks, I dunno. Anyway, it's bad having a game that wants me to keep it on for 8 hours every day, & check in on it every twenty minutes. Somehow this didn't translate into me writing for the meme meantime.
In the end I just flaked. In fact, I typed out & was going to post this almost two days ago, & put even that off!
So. I may as well get some amusement out of revealing the list. No longer taking questions.( Read more... )
