06:43 pm: Story: A Friendly Warning for Those Considering Playing Shadow Hearts: Bangkok Nights [Penny Arcade]
Title:A Friendly Warning for Those Considering Playing Shadow Hearts: Bangkok Nights
Author: littera_abactor
Fandom: Penny Arcade
Rating: As far as I'm concerned, if you're old enough to read Penny Arcade, you're old enough to read this.
Notes: This will only make the slightest lick of sense to those who know Penny Arcade. Knowledge of the Shadow Hearts video game series will also help. For your convenience, and as a sneak preview of Shadow Hearts, here is the strip in which Gabe and Tycho play Shadow Hearts: Covenant. If you're at all fond of gay porn, you probably want to check out that strip; everything it says is quite, quite true. And if you like that, brown_betty has quite the compendium of further PA strips for you to enjoy. Join the party! The Gay Penny Arcade Party!
Thanks: manasseh and lucia_tanaka beta-read this and encouraged me. (Came up tails, Lucia!) But none of it was their fault; please hold them harmless for all that follows.

That's not the joke. This is something you actually do.Collapse )

Melchesdick?! I did not notice that at ALL. What a ridiculous(ly appropriate) name.

Yup! And you know the only reason it was never used in Shadow Hearts: Covenant was that the designers didn't think of it. I believe I totally got inside their design ethos with that name.

*very proud*

I -- holy hell. This is so cool both as crazy meta and as a fabulous way of telling this story, and also as commentary on the Shadow Hearts games, and --

Too fabulous for words, honestly. Just too cool.

Thank you!

And, see, I told you someday I'd actually finish a Shadow Hearts story. I just didn't think it'd be within a Penny Arcade story. Shows what I know.

(And that, unless I miss my guess, is Yuri himself. Guh, indeed.)

Thank you! I'm actually totally astonished (and thrilled) that it makes any sense at all without context.

Ahahaha, I finished reading the Tycho section and totally thought the story was over because I hadn't scrolled down far enough to see the next headline, and then I got to Gabe. *dies and is dead* <3

*beams and is happy*

(Who knew this many people had a secret desire to read Gabe/Tycho? I didn't expect this many people to read this in the whole of ever, let alone tonight.)

They did indeed have a run-in with Harlan Ellison. It was pure magic.

And I am so glad you enjoyed this! Seriously, I never dreamed it would make sense to people not conversant with Penny Arcade and Shadow Hearts lore.

*deeply pleased*

OH MY GOD I AM SUCH A HAPPY GIRL RIGHT NOW.


(Also, I actually have a P-A icon, I realized. Sweet.)

Thank you!

And I am actually quite, quite amazed at how many people have Penny Arcade icons. LJ people never do stop surprising me with their incredible excellence, good taste, and appreciation for the finer things. (Especially when "finer things" means "Tycho blowing Gabe.")

Thank you! (And I'm glad you liked the momentary lapse of reason, which I sort of had a "Leave it in? Take it out?" moment about. *beams further*)

AH!

AHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Your Tycho may only be second to the Real Thing (tm), for which you are to be very much congratumalated. And of course momentary lapse of reason was my favourite part.

Um. Besides the wangpistil.

Thank you!

And if I was Gabe, I would totally make a joke about how the wang is everyone's favorite part, but I am not, and I'm trying not to channel him, either. Could go to a bad place, is my thinking there.

Thank you!

Phantom Flower Power Spray: sex pollen as a weapon?

That is precisely what I was thinking, yes. The offensive capabilities of sex pollen have really not been explored enough, and Shadow Hearts is just the franchise to fix that problem.
