Alternative Universe Elwood City

Post by Coyote_Mao on Wed Mar 14, 2018 5:18 pm

How often do you guys wonder what your favourite characters' lives would be like if their stories took place in a different time period, another geographical location or in a parallel dimension? Having grown up watching foreign (well, mostly American, Australian and Japanese) cartoons and movies, while at the same time living in a completely different sort of social and cultural climate, I sometimes like to dwell on this sort of scenario. Like, what if Arthur and his friends and relatives kept all of their usual character traits and relationships, but were forced to live in an alternative version of their hometown? For instance, a nightmarish Orwellian copy of Elwood City... Elwoodgrad! Bwahahaha! Very Happy

'1984' rendered by Arthur cast members would be incredible - personally, I would cast Buster as Winston Smith, Muffy as Julia (queer as it may appear) and Bud as O'Brien.

Buster as Winston is a choice I can get behind, but I'd pick Ladonna as Julia and that pretty much rules Bud out as the member of the Inner Party. I think D.W. would play that role much better... And we all know who's gonna be the Big Brother. Surprised

I was actually considering Ladonna as Julia, but that would, as you said, rule out Bud as O'Brien, who I mainly wanted to include as the revelation of whatever is beneath the bunneh's hat would play a major role in the character's enigmatic personality. D.W is a great choice though, and I salute you for transplanting the wonderfully horrified image of Buster/Winston being tortured by D.W playing endless marathons of Mary Moo Cow in the Ministry of Love.
Of course, Big Brother may be watching us all, explaining why he's long since been demoted to background character status in the actual show.

Sounds just great. Love the idea of taking the characters to new places and/or times. I believe I would love to read a story like that. Very cool.

Thanks ILikeToons! I tend towards spontaneously concocting bizarre narrative ideas due to my overdoses of secret potion, but you'll find tons of other members tend to do so as well for different reasons. It's just the way we are around the Slums - a bunch of crazy idiosyncratic outcasts from society who take pleasure in conglomerating to discuss the more off-the-wall facets of Arthur.

Gee I had to give up my secret potion, it kept causing me to fall down.  Then I found out it wasn't too big of a secret, since anyone can buy gin in the local liquor store. (giggle)

I switched to ice tea and been mostly vertical since the change.

I read 1984 once not too long ago. It was honestly terrifying. A frightening concept, to say the least. pale

I think the word you're looking for is "depressing" and... Wait, you've read it? Including the adults-only scenes? Smile

"Adults-only?" I guess I'm not sure what you mean. I'll be honest, I didn't get very far in the book, but I got far enough to get a pretty good idea of how things work in that universe, Big Brother and everything. I guess I wasn't supposed to have it for some reason, because my mom took it when she found it laying on my desk. I'm still a bit peeved over that. She knows how much I enjoy reading, so I don't get why she'd try and keep me from reading a classic novel like that.

Well, if you had kept up and have it as an ebook on your portilex phone that wouldn't have happened.

Really? Can my Portilex hold ebooks? I guess the idea never occurred to me... I do prefer actual physical books, though.
