Phog defense squad - lines finished! Based on this imagine your OTP/squad meme~ this was fun (´◠ω◠`)
As I said in an earlier post, I want to focus on other projects so I can’t color it. But I don’t want to leave it in black and white either! Therefore I ask you again: does anybody of the XCX fandom want to color it? It doesn’t have to be just one person~ It will be some kind of collab between you and me :3
((And no, I don’t care about style or skill. I just want it colored and my only request is that you color the lines as well~))
Each character rhymes differently. The way that they are rapping contributes to their story. George Washington raps in a very on-beat, metronomic way because he is focused and driven and always moving forward. Lafayette has this great arc where he starts out rhyming words that don’t really rhyme and he can’t really figure it out. As he becomes comfortable — and a general — he can do this really complicated, technical, fast stuff. It’s like him mastering this language. Jefferson’s raps are so bouncy and all over the place, and part of it’s because I’m playing him — but Lin was writing with this interesting kind of West Coast feel:
[Raps from “Washington on Your Side.”] “If Washington isn’t gon’ listen to disciplined dissidents, this is the difference: This kid is out.”
It’s very bouncy, not necessarily story-focused. Jefferson doesn’t really have to worry about that because he’s an aristocrat, and he can do whatever he wants. He gets to play a little more. To pack all of that into this story, it’s like, oh man, of course it took you six years to write it. There’s very careful, methodical work going on here.
Can you just imagine all the nerdy and mechanic stuff these two would talk and get excited about if they met, it would be out of proportions. It would be the new friendship of the century oh but don’t tell Reyn c;
