Guess I’ll stick with color for the rest of the comic; makes it pop! I’m curious what you guys are thinking! Spit it out! :D No more of my small captions that explain what’s going to happen, you tell me! LOL
By day, she’s one half of the hit pop sensation “Squid Sisters.” By later that same day, Marie is Agent 2 from the secretive New Squidbeak Splatoon! Stepping in for the out-of-office Cap'n Cuttlefish, she’s been keeping a watchful eye on the shady Octarians. As a side note, the newly recruited Agent 4 has apparently never heard of the Squid Sisters?! Agent 4 must be one of those newfangled cord cutters. Or a hermit crab. Or both…
Of course the beautiful Sensational Sisters are on a well-deserved vacation once again for always putting a good show at the Cerulean Gym. Brock’s siblings are back home taking care of the house, while their parents are still being crazy in love with each other. And Tracey is….uhm
Please call Oak’s Lab if you have seen this boy who sketches Pokémon
So tonight, I decided to put this page in color just so it seems more alive to you while you read it. This is just an experiment but I wouldn’t mind some feedback! Would you enjoy reading the ending of the comic in color or black and white?
Misty doesn’t regret going as Meg from Disney’s Hercules to the Halloween party…oh no. She does regret telling her sisters and friends what her costume would be ahead of time, because of course they’d decide to torment her with a certain song from that movie…
Idea: one of the more common complaints certain fans have against Misty is that she never got an ongoing rival the way the other pokegirls did. I can’t say I really understand that argument, since 1. that tradition hadn’t been established in the OS and 2. did Brock, Tracey, Max, Clemont, or Bonnie get rivals?
But, if we accept (for some reason) that pokegirls must have a central rival, then picture this: during the Johto years, Misty does have a recurring rival, and it’s…her sisters!
Now, to head off some initial objections: keep in mind that the Sensational Sisters weren’t played as incompetent battlers when they first appeared. They were demoralized from getting wiped by the kids from Pallet Town and more than a little preoccupied with their beauty regimen, but they were maintaining the gym, and they themselves described the water shows as a hobby, not a full-time gig. They mock Misty for not being as beautiful or talented as they are, and Misty flat-out states to Daisy that she wants to prove she can be “just as good a trainer as you are!” So it seems the initial plan, at least, was that Misty was not only put down as the runt for not being as glamorous as her sisters, but for not being as good a trainer in their eyes.
So imagine if, coming back from the Orange Islands and going into Johto, the gang starts running into Misty’s sisters, one or two at a time, with the idea being that they trade off who serves as the Gym Leader while the other two travel around. Mostly to perform and bask in attention, but if they happen along Ash and friends, and have a battle with Misty, we could see that they are incredibly skilled when they decide to try, and that sets Misty off on a Gen-2-long arc to best them, resulting in several more encounters finally culminating in her beating her sisters at the Whirl Cup. Then, if Misty still got written off the show vis a vis taking over the gym when her sisters f*ck off on a cruise, that could’ve been the coda to a storyline that saw them all reconciled and Misty finally proving herself equal to the others, not some contrived out pulled from thin air.
Plus, the more Misty’s sisters appear, the more they can tease her about her “boyfriend,” and the more pokeshipping we get. It’s a win all around!
Headcanon: Misty looks like her dad, and her sisters look like their mom.
Daisy’s and Misty’s hair/eye color is natural, while Violet and Lily dye their hair and one of them wears colored contacts.
Their mom definitely has a flower name like Rose! And yes, she likes the romantic/finer things in life and cares about her appearance… but she’s not as ditzy as the three older ones. She’s more likely the oblivious type that gives the benefit of the doubt to anyone with a serene smile on her face. She’ll offer you a glass of… ahem, grape juice (4kids
à la mode) if she can. Since she has this air of elegance she probably has a Seaking!
I would think the dad would have a simple name like Jack (except the Titanic movie ruined that for me in middle school!) and FOR SOME REASON HIS VOICE SOUNDS LIKE A MORE REFINED NIGEL THORNBERRY lmao! He can be quite the gentleman and generous, so he’s given his daughters a prime example of how they should be treated by their dates. Ooh, yes, and he has a Blastoise!
So wait… in the sub, Misty/Kasumi calls out, “Go, my Steady!” when she releases a Pokemon for battle.
From what Shudo’s novels say, Misty hasn’t had the best luck with boys before meeting Ash/Satoshi.
As Elite3′s Pokemon Abridged’s Ash would say: “Whatever that means!”
Headcanon: Misty probably had to depend on her Pokemon for emotional support through hard times, especially if her sisters couldn’t or would just tease her. Or maybe Misty managed to bring a boyfriend home to have her sisters’ approval, but he might’ve went gaga for her sisters instead?!
By spending so much time with them, Misty learned to tell what her Staryu/Starmie were feeling by their body language and not their “faces”.
Which makes it all the more heartbreaking for Misty when Giselle defeated her prized Starmie with a freakin’ Graveler of all things! It shattered Starmie’s red core in the center… it must’ve been absolutely painful! We even see her cradling Starmie and its core as if to keep it together.
Also, if you can’t be on par with Misty’s own Pokemon as being her “steady” then you’re not gonna last with her!
When Will and Kala officially meet, we kinda get a glimpse of how their relationship is going to be
Will is like a big brother who always tries to protect his sister
Kala is a younger sister who’s learning what it means to become a woman – an adult, I would say. And gradually becoming one
I wouldn’t say they have much interactions, but they have trust in each other – that Will gets (mostly medical) help from Kala and sometimes Kala asks Will for advice
They’re both logical and compassionate at the same time. Will can fight, and so can Kala (she can make the bomb)
So basically they’re very much alike – which is why I kinda want to see them having some sort of conflict? I think it’ll be interesting to see our sensate brother/sister arguing over an important matter – like Wolfgang, for example? (I’ll explain it later)
Favorite moments in season 2 (spoilers)
2x02 Who Am I?
It’s not really an interaction, I would say, because Will is literally in sleep. Still I just like this scene cause we get to see more of Kala’s contribution to the cluster as a medic.
– Let’s be honest. Who doesn’t like this scene?! I love how Kala being all talkative while Will is just there…listening to her. The fact is as soon as she talks about the issue (of telling Rajan everything) along with her not-so-subtle-jealousy towards Lila, Will instantly knows the answer. I’m pretty sure he wasn’t really listening to her.
@lightgamble I mean look at him lol. He’s like “Hmm? you’re saying?”
– Anyway, still they’re able to give each other good advice…especially for Kala. I like that Will was very considerate with his response because as a member of same cluster, he definitely knows how Kala and Wolfgang feel for each other…and how Kala is still struggling with her feelings, with herself overall. So he’s very careful not to be too straightforward, but still be able to give advice that might help her realize what’s best for her, what she really wants, and who she truly loves.
– The reaction of Kala was like “oh shit…” then immediately changes subject. Not to mention giving the most (yeah I’m kinda exaggerating lol) straightforward advice “you need to eat properly, take your medicine, and focus!” after all, she is scientist.
– I know I said earlier that Kala and Will have trust in each other (all 8 of them have trust in one another, but you know what I mean) but this was like the moment where they really seem like real brother and sister. Will is like “really, seriously? That’s the idea? You’re scientist for Christ sake. Come on. Now what.” and Kala doesn’t mind at all when Will and Wolfgang don’t seem to approve her idea.
OK, so about “the conflict over important matter” thing? I was just imagining what might happen in season 3 – I can say canon right? correct me if I’m wrong, but anyway – we know that throughout the season, Will was very determined to take down Whispers (and BPO). And Kala who confessed her love to Wolfgang would probably do anything to save him.
What if, what would happen if the cluster faces a situation in which they have make a choice, between Whisper’s life and Wolfgang’s life? As you know the chairman of BPO needs Whispers, so his life is quite valuable and if he dies, the damage will be severe to BPO. But they have Wolfgang as hostage.
So in one point, (assuming they can’t have both – taking down Whispers AND saving Wolfgang) the cluster may have to decide what is more important to them.
Take down BPO…a sacrifice for greater good?
Save Wolfgang (#SaveWolfie)…protect the one you love?
I know that Will is not just gonna abandon Wolfgang, but what I’m saying is there might be conflict of interest within the cluster – especially between Will and Kala. I mean we’ve already seen that kind of “conflict of interest” with Sun (how to do with her brother). So it’s possible to happen, but again it’s just me imagining things. However, if it happens, I’m pretty sure the cluster will find a way and do the right thing (Hopefully save Wolfgang and send him to Paris with Kala).
Still I want to see Will and Kala trying to persuade each other what’s best for the cluster. Will’s saying there’s bigger threat coming after them, and Kala’s fighting hard for her love.
Patrick Turner sat down in his
living room, and lit a cigarette, having put his son Timothy to bed. Even
though it was only 8.30 pm he felt exhausted and considered going to bed, but eventually
could not decide to move. He knew if he went to bed now, he would probably lie
awake for hours, even though his body felt tired to the bone. He had had a long
day at his surgery, skipped his lunch break because of a beginning flu
epidemic, and had hardly gotten any sleep the previous night because he had
been attending a difficult birth until the wee hours.
Even though he constantly felt
exhausted, sleep did not come easily to him these days. Since a couple of weeks
he had a recurring dream about hands. A woman’s small and tender but also strong
hands, gently touching his hands, his cheeks, the nape of his neck. He intensely
felt these hands running through his hair and touching his bare forearms in a
firm but affectionate grip. More recently, the image of these hands also
appeared more and more frequently in front of his eyes during the day, causing
him to drift off into daydreams while sitting over paperwork or waiting for the
autoclave to finish.
“Oh Misty darling, you know that sweet stuff makes you fat and is terrible for your teeth. And you’re so pretty, just like me when I was your age, do you want to be fat and ugly?”
“That’s my favorite girl. Now, honey do you remember the dance routine we practiced with your sisters?”
“Good. Now there’s your cue, baby—go out there and do your best for me.”
Little Misty Morgan was born into a family of showbiz, with a mother Mitzi Morgan who was a popular Kantonese daytime actress in her prime and three stepsisters (Violet, Lily and Daisy) said mother managed as a troupe of child-to-teenage dancers. (Their mother slept around with producers sometimes for better roles, and neither of the sisters have the same father, and Misty has no idea nor care who hers is).
Misty was a very precocious toddler; smart, talented and confident, every moment captured on film and she out of all her siblings showed the best promise as a dancer and a singer and by god, did her mother make the most out of it, more so because she out of all her sisters most resembled their mother and was thus, the golden child. She was entered into child beauty pageants and was a part of the Sensational Sisters since she was five, dancing and performing when she wasn’t doing schoolwork and while she enjoyed it initially and loved working with Pokemon which was something which came naturally to her, it began to wear on her as she grew older and Mitzi wanted her to take a starring role which put her at odds with two of her older sisters Violet and Lily (who already resented her for being the favorite) and the practice workload and neverending shows took a toll on her grades. Mitzi micromanaging every aspect of her life and being emotionally (and as time went by, physically) abusive didn’t make the situation better and she battled with self-esteem and image issues as a teenager until she was fifteen at which point she got into a massive row with her mother (after hacking off most of her well-cultivate long hair which Mitzi was proud of), which resulted in a physical scuffle that was brought up in family court. Through emancipation of a minor, Misty was able to remove herself from Mitzi’s care and Daisy, the one sister who was supportive of her (and was already 18 at that point) vouched to be her guardian.
Taking a sabbatical from showbusiness, she decided to focus on her studies as well as Pokemon training and gained both a stellar CGPA and
extracurricular record, enough for her to be chosen to further her studies for Marine Biology in Unova which was attempting to mend its ties with Kanto at that time through a student exchange program. There, she met up with Marlon, the son of Humilau’s chief who was studying in her line and whom she grew close to. He struck up her interest in owning a gym, a desire which she took back with her to Kanto and after proving her worth as one of the nation’s top Pokemon trainers, was given the gym lease for Cerulean City. She’s steadfastly held on to it through criticisms lobbed her way from some members of the public who believed a ‘spoiled showbiz brat’ had no right to own a gym and her own mother who expounded constantly how doomed her venture was.
Due to her time as a child celebrity, she’s become extremely good at faking niceties without even realizing it and comes off as a Stepford Smiler; While she loves dancing and performing and still puts on special shows with her sisters, she dislikes being reminded of her time performing as a child due to her memories of it versus what most people saw. Without her mask or for those who manage to get beyond it, she’s a headstrong, tempestuous, impatient and hotheaded spitfire who would step across broken glass for her passions and the people she loves, has an opinion for everything and will probably discourse you to death at three in the morning AND ANOTHER THING ASSHOLE
She doesn’t even know why she has a Togepi; DC (Dumb Cutie) is pretty much a useless pile of fluff she rescued during her travels that can’t battle yet, needs a lot of care and poops on her shoulders during inopportune times, but she dgaf, he cute.
Other notes: She’s partially based off Trish Walker from Jessica Jones! Also look, I wanted her to have a proper wetsuit don’t judge me. It should be said at this point, that all headcanons including Misty’s story here, Old Gods and New Worlds and the Oak Family Saga are how these characters exist in Sins of the Father’s timeline, because I’m a sucker for stories.
