What's it gonna be about? And what tropes where you thinking about?
Uh, urban fantasy murder mystery. And I wanted to shove in as many tropes as possible but MOSTLY build it on the premise that the “back of the book” blurb is a trap. Like there’s a Big Muscley Dark and Handsome man who oozes masculinity and muscles and then there’s a competent and lovely woman who wants nothing to do with him/is annoyed at his blatant ‘do what I say I’ll protect you’ nonsense except HALFWAY THROUGH THE BOOK I reveal that there’s no UST she’s super gay. She’s like “holy hell I’m attracted to that female werewolf with the pink hair and muscles holy shit she’s so hot” and her roommate, slightly nerdy Attractive man is like “I don’t like women that much but you do you. Also, remind me for the fiftieth time that Muscle Man is a tool and I appreciate myself too much to go after a straight guy.”
Basically if this ever becomes an actual finished book anyone who picks it up will be like “yes, good, a regular romance novel– wait what. Who is trans? What? Queer? whom?” and just. Be very thrown. it was a trap.
((so I’m gonna compile all the Good Shit from the #BendyHTtakeover event into one post okay here we goooo))
Sammy has been writing music for most of his life, “from a young age […] tunes would pop into my head, [writing music] was the only logical step. ;)”
“Willow Weep For Me” is Sammy’s favorite song, he apparently considers it modern. what time period does this game take place in jfc
Sammy made a handful of puns during the event. Puns are great.
Apparently he liked Bacon Soup at one time, but “it kind of lost its luster after a bit.. But you’d have to be crazy to not love chocolate cake!”
Putting on pants is apparently a struggle for him.
Someone asked if Norman was behind the organ from chapter 2. He responded with “The organ… I don’t know what you mean. Although Norman, our projectionist, he was always very bright..” which might be a hint to something, a compliment, or another pun - who knows.
An ad for a Little Mermaid bedspread got posted in the middle of the event, probably on accident. Someone joked “Sammy’s favorite Disney Princess is Ariel, confirmed.” All he had to say was something was amiss with the post, and the bed looked comfortable.
Sammy still writes and sings music when he’s not praising Bendy, and has written “so many dozens of songs! So many! When you’ve been in this business as long as I have… you’re quite busy.” He also said “Perhaps you shall hear them someday.” pls
His clearest memory of the studio besides the ink pump is “a whistling sound, a vague melody.. with a sinister purpose.”
When asked for advice on composing music, he responded “Music is all about layers. Rich and lush. Practice, my friend. That’s what it’s all about!”
Wally’s catchphrase is apparently contagious. Someone asked “Sammy, what would happen if Wally lost his keys again?” To which he responded, “That Wally! That man can’t ever keep his things in order! If I didn’t know better I’d say his mind was wayyyyy out of here!”
Headcanon confirmed, “Sheep Songs” is Sammy’s favorite song he wrote for the Bendy cartoons.
He wears the mask to “resemble the most perfect form I know!”.
He might not be able to see without the mask as well, someone later asked “how do you see with that mask?” and he replied “how do you see withoutyours?”. Might have just been a joke, or confirming the “ink monsters can see through Bendy’s eyes in cutouts and posters” theory.
Sammy thinks Susie is “A charming woman.. quite… charming.. I recall only her face… that.. smile.”
