You should do a flame princess one the the Avatar quote; "Fire is Life, Not Just Destruction" -Jong-Jong. I think it encompasses her Morality dilemma well, especially given the example.

You're gonna enjoy it. Excellent story and yet the webcomic is totally underrated. It doesn't have a big enough fan base.

Boredome is the last thing I would be afraid ofwith immortality...literally. First comes grief, then comes being extremely bored

Queen, they are one of the best bands in the history of rock. Bohemian Rhapsody, Killer Queen, We Will Rock You, and We Are the Champions are one of my favorite songs from them. I'm one of the few people in school who still believes in rock and roll. The rest keeps on listening to pop music.

And that's pretty cool. Unfortunately, people have more access to pop music so they don't get to hear gems like Queen and the rest.

That Marceline and Bubblegum immortality one, is that a quote or did you come up with it?

illeity Featured By Owner Nov 24, 2012   Digital Artist
Nope, just wrote it up myself. The idea was floating in my head somewhere, so I decided to pluck it out and use it. :)

Brilliant as usual mate! The Queen picture on the lower left is well done. Wonder how many Queen fans would recognise it. Marceline taking on the middle of the flamboyant Freddie Mercury. I love the mini dialogue between PB and Marceline. Something that people would do well to think about.

It's gonna be tough. I noticed that only a few people really notice the references and symbolism I plug in my works.
Which is why I appreciate those who do notice it. :)

Freddie Mercury left the world too early though. Pretty sad.

It's always good to notice those hidden references and pieces of symbolism. Looking at your work is like looking for the liche snail in each episode. You know it's there, you just have to find it.

I concur, he was a genius who did die too early. But, did you ever hear that final song that Queen performed after Brian May discovered a tape (lol, yeah, for a tape deck) with music and stuff Freddie prepared on his death bed. Hmm, I'm trying to recall the name of the song... ok, I looked it up, it's called 'No One But You'. It's brilliant and the video very moving in terms of symbolism.

I freaking love Queen! I always listen to the songs, Bohemian Rhapsody or Teo Torriate, whenever I get the chance to write. Also, I noticed that you have been getting more and more questions lately. I hope that means you're getting the recognition you deserve! Or maybe it's just me, who knows?

You have good taste in music dude :)

It's just you actually :) The questions were spread out across several weeks so they're not that numerous. And I decided to wait until I got 10 images before I made another compilation volume.
If people kept asking questions though I don't think I can sustain making a lot of images!

If you could dump your memories every 150 years and store them externally, would immortality really be that bad?
Reply
:iconilleity:
illeity Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2012   Digital Artist
I dunno, our memories make us who we are and if we remove it, we're not exactly living fully in the world.

I'm questioning Marceline's immortality. Would sunlight eventually kill her or just melt her and turn her into some type of sentient goo until she could fine some shade and heal herself? However, that needs to take into account how good is her regenerative abilities...
Reply
:iconilleity:
illeity Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2012   Digital Artist
Well, classic Vampire rules state that she will be killed on prolonged exposure to sunlight. As long as she avoids that and anything else that can kill her, she can live forever.

She can live forever, but that doesn't necessarily mean she's invincible.

It's also implied that she's killed the instant a stake stabs her.

I agree with Marcy and that is the reason why I would not wish for immortality, I am afraid I would get bored.

That's what makes Marcy special. She's relatively well-adjusted for someone who's 1000+ years old. :)
