Poor turtle…poor Velvy…
That turtle had it comin!
Is it just me, or do the ‘la la la’s remind anyone else of RahXephon and Quon? >.> It’s probably my imagination, but still. :P
Also, poor poor Velvy, I’d give you a hug so long as you didn’t kill me.
Sad thing is he wouldn’t do it on purpose. Poor guy can’t help himself:(
Never seen either of those :).
It’s a gundam-y-anime, and Quon sings ‘Stranger In Paradise’ with la la las. >.> In my head the two’re super similar, that’s how it always starts with the two short la’s, a long one, and more stacatto ones. :P
Innocent child-voice Velvy, I would give you lots of lovings and snugglies as long as I could be plague proof. ~finds a velvet carrot for the bunny~
The “la la la” makes me suspect Miss Muffet. Her mechanical limbs would probably be good for long-distance hugging.
There’s nothing you and I can’t do. I’ll stop the world and melt with you.
xD Nice parody. I do feel bad though…will Velvy ever have any non-melty friends?! He makes me feel kinda sad…
Boyo> You’ll see once he encounters the other heroes, eh? ;)
I love the melting effect, sort of like the Wicked Witch. Poor bunny.
I will hug him and squeeze him and love him forever and I will name him Squishy and he will be my Squishy…
…Velvy’s story always made me cry; now I’m rethinking that. Not hard, but a little.
I was reading this again when I realized that my internal voice for Velvy is a child’s voice. I think it makes him creepier.
I definitely get an innocent voice when I hear him in my head. Also, look for him as the star of the 100th Strip Pin-up that will go up the same time as our 100th strip on Monday. Yes, it’s been that long already!
Well, so much for the Tortise and the Hare storyline…
The funny thing was, Jade didn’t even think about that when she was designing the strip. She just went, “Oh, Velvie can catch a turtle!” I pointed it out later and we were both pretty giddy about it.
Its amazing how many different fables/stories people will infer from subconsciously :). I still say that turtle had it comin.
I also have the child’s voice in mind, though Peter Lorie gives an interesting effect.
Heh. You’re in luck! I am very familiar with who Peter Lorie is and, yes, that is interesting indeed to picture LOL!
The turtle… I laughed for like a good two minutes. Velvy has this look about him as he’s holding the empty shell which is just like, “Aww, it died! Well…poop.” I love it!
