Less of a reference, but Captain sings Frozen’s “Let it go”
"DON’T GO IN THEIR BALL-PIT! I HEARD IT’S VERY, VERY SMALL." - Referring to the fiasco that wasDashcon
"The pool in the back was for some reason filled with keyboard letters." - Unless it’s just a coincidence, this references a line of posts from /r/talesfromtechsupport in which /u/airz23 has to keep on providing new keyboard to the sales dept, but later finds a cache of them missing all thier keys in a broom cupboard.
Zee Captain is Snippy’s future self?
Yes. We just haven’t seen that part of his genetic memory yet.
In all seriousness though, there’s so many references to Zee Captain being a future Snippy. The Arbiter scanned The Mug, and only got Zee Captain’s DNA, but Snippy’s seen holding it. If Zee Captain is Snippy’s future self, then how’s he existing at the same time as Snippy? Throughout the entire thing, Snippy’s been part of temporal anomalies, such as before Pi became Pilot, and then now with him actively de-synchronizing and trying to change the past. He’s said himself he’s died well over 100 times already. Zee Captain himself has also made numerous references to Snippy being his past self. And Zee Captain’s color is purple. What would one get if they mixed Snippy’s blue with the Bio-matrix’s red?
In conclusion to this, what if Zee Captain is in reality a Snippy of the future who has fully merged with the Bio-Matrix, has mastered de-synchronization to a point where he can travel through time, has tried to change the future by changing the past numerous times as to go crazy, and ends up going back in time before the Apocalypse and starting the whole thing in the process?
The glass wall on floor 10 presented a vista of a building ripped apart. The scenery was that of devastation and flying pieces of debris, walls and broken furniture that endlessly spun about as if it was held up by an invisible high-speed carousel. I could see cloudy, gloomy sky all the way through the torn-up building.
"G-DAMN!" I swore, staring at the scene of a perpetual, miniature storm.
"LET IT GO, LET IT GO. I AM ONE WITH THE WIND AND SKY" Captain sung, pulling me along.
I doubt many people here follow “Romantically Apocalyptic”, but it’s by far one of my favorite web comics.
Anyway, facts about them: To accompany the majority of their issues, they provide text to give better context and detail the backstory of the RA universe. This text is almost always worth the read.
And then of course, the above quote.
They referenced Frozen, and I about died. When fandoms collide, I can’t handle it. I just can’t.
Romantically Apocalyptic contains a bunch of references and Easter eggs. You can find a bunch of them on my blog.
Snippy was a very rational individual, but his insanity increases as his world-view crumbles before him. He did not believe anything supernatural previously, but his view on reality has been torn apart due to the Biomatrix 117 and the unnatural events he has witnessed. Snippy does not know what to make of anything he sees any more and this is stressing to him.
Reread ‘Romantically Apocalyptic’ the other day.
All I can say is I really like Charles.
I’m so happy with how this came out!
I just realized the Inflatable Donut of RA 163 is a thing that exists and can be purchased on amazon.
Yes, here is the close-up of Snippy: http://romacspeculations.tumblr.com/post/50813312806/mr-snippy-by-grimhel
Yes, Snippy did die there. He has actually died several times, but this was a very important death, since he got connected to the Biomatrix.
Lifealope then revived him in issue 78.
So I decided to do a sketch of Mr Snippy from the webcomic Romantically Apocalyptic. If you haven’t read it then you should, it’s amazing! Also I can’t draw guns //dies
The first thing I’d suggest is to follow the RA tag.
Next comes a list of a few cool RA blogs to follow:
- ask-irl-snippy (mine!)
Some blogs that occasionally post RA stuff:
- pahaperse (one of the cutest Pilot cosplayers!)
- lizbrid / lizbridsgallery
I hope this was helpful to you! :)
Awesome list of relevant blogs!
