WK headcanon of the day: Chris gets cold easily. And yeah, bringing this up because of the picture X3
This is actually one inspired more by watching the real Chris, and then seeing things related in the show itself. If you watch the RL segments, as a general rule he’ll always be wearing more layers than Martin, his coats will be closed up more, sometimes his sleeves will even be pulled down over bare hands in cold weather. A couple notable segments I can think of include ending Masked Bandits, and ending Race for the Hippo Disc, though there are many others I just can’t think of right now
because I’m sleepy and haven’t had a real meal yet.
Going off that, we can see little notes here and there in the show itself. The most basic one is that he wears his jacket more zipped up than Martin does; it may even be more of a pullover since the zipper doesn’t go all the way down the way it’s shown doing so on Martin’s.
Clue #2 is in the caps I put on the recent drawing, which comes from a de-blanketed Chris in Elephant in the Room. For one thing, as SOON as the blanket is stolen, he starts shivering.
And though this other part is kind of subtle (so much so that I missed it the first few times I saw this episode >_> ), once Thornsley wrecks his havoc on their sleeping arrangements and tosses Chris on top of Martin, Chris is sitting there shivering still.
I don’t have a gif of it
sadly, but there’s the shot to keep an eye out for if you wanna look for it yourself. But even here, you can kinda tell his arms look crossed over in front of him, just adding to the shivering. After this, Chris can be seen camped on top of Martin, no big deal, he’s warm. (Related headcanon: Martin gets hot easily, but that’s another post for another day)
#3 comes to us from Snow Runners. Granted, being a lizard out in the snow wouldn’t be fun for anybody. But Chris seemed to have an especially hard time of it, didn’t he?
Plus his myriad running commentary on how cold it was, Aviva did you finish the hare suit yet, can I go get somewhere warm yet, are we finished now, did I mention how cold it was.
And I suppose sub-Clue #3 (because it’s such a small thing) is in Journey to the Subnivean Zone. I’m just gonna leave this here.
(And that once again, at least for a moment, you can see him shivering.)
This is probably one of my main headcanons for Chris, one that (particularly after noting the same in his RL counterpart) I pretty much call canon. If nothing else, it’s fun to play around with in RP and the like.
Besides, it also happens to make a particular creature power a little more amusing, namely sperm whale.
Because let’s give the big blubbery power to the one that’s going to get chilly down in the ocean depths.
And also needs all that protection because CHRIS YOU TINY
(Walrus is a minor example for the same reason; minor because Martin gets it too, and also gets his own warm power in polar bear)
So yeah, there you go. Just felt like sharing it with you guys X3 Whether you agree or disagree, I hope it was at least an enjoyable read.
