*sits in absolute awe at what has been seen*

Oh, man! Mayyday this is awesome. And crazy HUGE. O_o I love how you managed to incorporate the various characters as they're normally drawn into things before everything is altered.

The Portal gun coming into play even! XD

Doc being referred to as Noah Antwiler/Dr. Insano again!

So many callbacks and nods! And that ending. XDXDXDXD Only Charlotte would decide playing a Mario Kart Tournament after all the craziness that has happened. XD

Glad you like it Misty (can I call you Misty?)

I definitely tried to pack in as many nods and pop culture references as I could, given the nature of your comic. In case you were curious, a full list follows:

..

PAGE ONE

- Panel 1 is a recreation of a shot from the old 90's X-Men cartoon intro.

- That's a CM Punk zombie in Panel 2

- Obviously, Charlotte uses her Portal gun again. She also quotes Kyle Reese/The Terminator for her opening line.


PAGE TWO

- Charlotte calls the zombies "Deadites" as she Portals away.

- I tried as best I could to make everyone seem/act like they do in in their home universe. Little things like the way the panels are arranged (You can see the diference between Panel 1 and the rest of the page as they leave the Breathers-verse) to the way Charlotte's speech bubbles connect to the frame while Kat's do not. Char's text is also hand written, while Kat uses a font. Doc also uses non-curved speech bubble tails for his brief cameo.

- Charlotte once again confuses Doc for Doctor Insano/Spoony/Noah Antwiler.

- For the 'everyone' panel, some of those were redrawn/traced (Kat, Charlotte, Mayy, and Annabelle), some were donated to be dropped in as-is (Galina), and the rest were all photoshopped out of their home comics and placed in the scene. A weird quirk of this is that Abby and James ended up looking at each other, so I just ran with it in future pages.


PAGE THREE

- Charlotte goes all anime-reaction and uses her catchphrase 'Startropical!'

- "Stabilizing Quantum Differentials" was very nearly "Reversing polarity of the neutron flow."

- In Panel 3, I don't know how well it comes across, but it's supposed to be the opposite of the eventual end result. They're both drawn in the PRitN style, but colored and shaded like Breathers characters. This gets flipped in all remaining panels.


PAGE FOUR

- In Panel 1, Reality ensues for Lilith's hair. Also, I find Amy's shoes to be adorable.

- For Panel 4, they all have different controllers. Annabelle has a Wii wheel bacause it's the closest to what she's probably used to. Charlotte has a Wiimote held sideways so it resembles an NES controller. Kat has a generic third-party block because she really doesn't care about form, only function. And Mayy has a Classic Controller because it's the closest to most 'modern' controllers that she probably uses.

- Amy wearing Kat's coat while sitting with Benedict is also totally adorable.

- Charlotte has a Dragonzord belt buckle because of course she does.

- The 'The End' text is a mix of both comics' logos.


...


HOOOO-boy. I think that about covers it. Glad you liked the pages Misty! And for those who didn't know about their characters' cameos. Uh, SURPRISE! Lol hope you liked it too!

Thank you! Lol yeah, I procrastinated WAY too long on this assignment and ended up with a few almost-literal sleepless nights. It was worth it, though.

Oh. My. GOSH! I did NOT expect to see any of my characters in this exchange (since I wasn't able to partake in it this time) so I thought I'd just sit back and watch... And Annabelle appears! Mayyday, this is so awesome! That you would include my character... It seriously makes my day! And you draw her so cute too! Why didn't I give Annabelle lips? XD She looks adorable with them!

Seriously, THANK YOU! <3

I'm glad you like it! I was a little hesitant to put in characters who I had not 'cleared' with the original artists, but I figured the surprise would be worth it. :)

Amy actually ends up placing second behind Benedict. They have a friendly rivalry going.

He was, uh, brought down to a 'normal' height during the reality reset wave on page 3. Yeah, that's it. That is totally the canon explanation, and certainly not something I just made up just now (perish the thought!)
