Chapter 1 Episode 16 Ra Learns the Meaning of the SSBM Reward "Shameful Fall" This episode was made by Nuke
The title should have been a give away that something bad was about to happen to Ra this episode. I like to think Nuke activated a trap card off screen in this episode that allowed Dark Magician Girl to pull out a win. Technically, it IS possible to beat the Egyption Gods of Yu-gi-oh. You just got to know how. Bonus points if you do it with a monster that's typically seen as weak. I like how even Dark Magician Girl doesn't even know how she pulled out that win at the end and decides to ask Nuke. Why? Cause he's the author. He's gotta have all the answers right?
This would no longer be true down the road as Nuke becomes more shifted towards being an OC of course. And as part of the re-boot idea, let me say I want to make it so that no matter how much knowledge certain characters may have (Like how Cybie seems to be a literal walking encyclopedia about magic... heck, about everything it seems at some point in the comic), all characters will be clueless in certain areas. Perhaps it's because they never studied that particular area. Perhaps they just didn't find it interesting. Whatever the reason, I aim to make it that they aren't complete know-it-alls in the re-boot. How I'll go about this with my co-author Cybie, I'm not entirely sure yet. Not every character in the comic is of my own creation after all.
...Looking through these make me cringe, and I still can't quite understand how you manage. Also hello again!
Hah. I noticed you had signed up earlier. Guess you kept checking in every now and then eh? Welcome back!
I'm not going to ask what's making you cringe. My rather evolved tastes have been making me wonder what I was thinking back when I made some of these episodes myself. But hey, I had fun making this stuff back then, so these old comics deserve one last "victory lap" so to speak. I mentioned it elsewhere, but at this point, I've come to accept the fact that the vision I have for the series would involve basically having to hire a team of developers at this point, or somehow master every field necessary to achieve said vision. (Art, programming, etc) Basically, I've come to accept the fact that I'm no master, and I wish I was, but I've got to live with what knowledge I have.
All of this will be throughly explained in the later "explanation" episodes I have yet to construct. One way or another, I'm getting the story ideas out of my head, even if I'm just an amateur, so that I no longer have to keep said ideas bottled up in my head.
