So we all know the most-likely-evil billionaire Silas Prescott from Hero. When I first played Hero, he reminded me of someone else but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it! Then I remembered Silas Prince from the now-retired storybook app, Surviving High School!
For those of you who don’t know, Surviving High School was an app much like Choices where you can play through chapters and choose your responses, and the story got updated every week. This was created and run by a team called Centerscore that eventually got absorbed into Electronic Arts before EA discontinued the app. The team then went and started their own studio…PIXELBERRY STUDIOS!!
So basically, I think Silas Prescott is a callback to one of the characters from Surviving High School, Silas Prince. They both look alike, share the same first name, run an expansive/global business empire, are cold and calculating, and turn out to be the villain the whole time! Also they both have sons who don’t necessarily share the same ideals!
I think it’s kinda cool that PB is remembering their roots and calling back to their first storybook game! This could also just be a coincidence, but either way, it reminds me of how far they’ve come over the years!
I present to you the first installment of “Silas Nine-Nine”!
theeggplantavenger and I have come up with character comparisons between the Silas U crew and the Nine-Nine. So expect these lovely characters to be drawn in every hilarious scene I can find screencaps of
#TSIB 1st Anniversary Meme Day 1: Talk about the story
Dapat kagabi ko ‘to ipopost kaso ang epal ng internet namin kaya.. here you go! :)
Hinding-hindi ko makakalimutan yung araw na naisip ko ang storyline ng The Spaces in Between (na wala pang title that time). Nasa barko kami nun pauwi ng Marinduque (January 2011) para sa kasal ng pinsan ko. Nagsusulat ako ng isang chapter ng TDG Book 1 (hindi ko na matandaan kung ano) nang biglang pumasok sa isip ko yung name na Scheherazade. Matagal ko na kasi talagang trip yung name na 'yon, and sabi ko sa sarili ko na gagamitin ko ang name na 'yon if ever magkakaroon ako ng bagong story. Dapat nga Scheherazade ang name ni Trine sa Battle of the Exes since sinusulat ko rin 'yon that time. Buti na lang pinalitan ko, 'di kasi fit sa personality ni Trine ang name na “Zade”.
Matagal ko nang gustong magsulat ng isang kwent na may bidang celebrity. Drive ko kasi ang showbiz at Hollywood noon, at dala na rin ng kaadikan ko sa wrestling fan fictions nung high school. Uso rin kasi sa Wattpad yung mga artista ang bida that time kaya sinubukan ko na rin. Nung una nga, dapat si Zade ang artista kaso hindi ko maworkout yung idea and plot kaya nagstick ako sa norm na lalaki ang bida.. at ordinaryong tao ang girl. Yeah, I know. It sucks and a very worn out cliche lol
