But What If She Weighs Less Than A Duck? 16/111

There are way too many characters in Marimite to keep track of. I won’t even begin to make you try.

The cute brunette, however, is one to remember. Her name is Yumi (not to be confused with Yumie, Yumiko, or Yomiko), and she’s the main character of the series. If she looks a little familiar, it’s because Marian’s appearance was based on hers.

Timothy: So what is our alibi for being at the school?

Heinkel: Think about it, Timothy…

How could an agent dressed as a priest gather sensitive information from a lot of people?

Yumi (Japanese): {Wow! A priest is coming all the way from Rome…}

Lillian Girls’ School.

Yumi: {…just to hear our confessions?}

Sachiko: {They’re very kind at the Vatican, Yumi-chan.}

Oooh, they’ve arrived! Nice alibi. <3 (But it reminds me that I need to go. |D; )

Not sure if this strip is ASHN canon (since Enrico tends to spin some pretty interesting yarns), but in this strip a young Yumiko mentions Yumie coming up with her costume idea. Ponderable.

Since I’m completely unfamiliar with Marimite, my fanboy squeals aren’t going to be quite as loud as they have been with previous adventures.

…until the Utena bit comes in, of course.

Good that Yumiko is only a nun, Yumie would probably shout:”Sinner!” and pierce the wall of the confessional during the confession… But i think the pupils would not expect such a ‘feminine’ priest like Heinkel (but the order of iscariot is some kind of modern inquisition so they wouldn’t be expected anyways^^)
But I wonder if there really is as much to confess on a catholic girls school? I mean, last eastern/christmas can’t be too long ago?

I go to a Catholic school. The things I can say…. :shifty:

Yeah. Being Catholic doesn’t automatically imply any kind of purity or whatever. Regardless of what Maxwell might think.
Teenagers at a Catholic school are still, in fact, teenagers. With all that implies.

i must say; though Risa and Roy in that one are easily recognized as the resemblance is good enough, the one for Alex is kind of disapointing, i only recognized him thru the little purple sparks near his face. its one of this trademarks when he tries to look good LOL!

i wonder what other Cross over’s Erin can think up.
But i am a little suprized not to have seen HellsingXSailormoon Cross over’s yet :p

BTW: that reminds me, Erin.
could you provide me a link to you’re Sailormoon Fanfic?

i heard things left and right that you wrote one, but i am having a hard time to find it.

Alternate versions in the Mishmash don’t really count, if you ask me. Anyway, Dr. von Helsing mentions the alchemy several times when talking about Vlad’s achievements; I don’t have my copies of Dracula with me and don’t feel like hunting for an English copy in this country, so I can’t be much more specific than that. If there’s one crossover/cameo I’d really like to see, it’d be a mention of Father Mulcahy from the 4077th; just someone who was in Viet–Korea in the early 50s. Maybe he made a pilgrimage to the Vatican afterwards and Iscariot has something in their vaults.

Hmm…I could’ve sworn that the Vatican has taken a pretty hard line against ordaining women. Then again, reality and Shine are only rarely compatible. And Heinkel does pass for a man pretty well.

Trust me, I’m trying! I already have an epic-level SM x Hellsing crossover outlined, with about a quarter of it fully fleshed out. It has: all the senshi, character driven interactions (Seiya and Integra make an amazing dialogue pair, Pip and Michiru are downright *devilish* when they start talking to each other), multiple youma to ensure lots of action, Integra kicking tail, and a big-bad that justifies having all 12 senshi present to help Hellsing with it.

Erin’s not convinced that mixing magical girls with Hellsing is a good idea for Shine, though. >_>

Athos on Wed Nov 14, 2007 1:27 am

There is a saying that would apply to this situation in some language or other…something about fighting the proper foes. While Alucard can handle just about any type of (super)natural enemy, there are some things that it just wouldn’t be a good idea to send magical girls against. Things that show up in the Hellsing world with distressing regularity.

Pretty much anything disposed to attack suddenly and ignore the girls’ speeches is a bad matchup for magical girls. I have an idea or two for a story involving this concept, but they need fleshing out and joining up.

Tommygunner70 on Wed Nov 14, 2007 3:25 am

i understand, and i can understand Erin’s view on it as well.

the Hellsing universe is made up of Religion and the supernatural, which are explainable.
Magical powers are something that just doesn’t mix with that universe so good.

it kind of looking at it like that which can determan if the idea will work or not. but i wonder in what way Erin looked at it.

“Plot point” can also mean “plot element” or “a subject that will be dealt with over the course of the plot.” In other words, Erin’s saying we’ll find out Yumie’s origins in this arc.

Or at least, that Yumie’s existence will be important to the arc.

…although, now that you mention it…

…a plot bunny just mugged me and ran off with my wallet.

I’ve had a general idea of things I want to include in this storyline for some time now, but this Saturday something clicked in my head, and now I know how these things will develop, exactly who will end up in battle with who and in what order, and how it will look when the dust settles.

Recently, for a completely different fic in a completely different fandom, I’ve been doing research that involves multiple personality disorder. But for some reason I never connected it to this storyline.

Until now.

Oh, this is going to be so much fun. I’m dizzy with anticipation.

Still, I have an idea on why Yumiko left Lillian. But it would also get rid of the awesome “Yumiko finding out her grande souer is still at Lillian for some reason” scene I have in my head. And it’d be rather dramatic, which is only good when there’s a good punchline or Timothy getting confused.

Oh, tell me the scene! And/or the idea! They may or may not work within the storyline, but I’d love to hear them 😀

There have been a few Sailor Moon cameos in the strip so far. (Michiru hit on Integra way back during the cruise storyline, for example.)

All of my online fanfic is here: http://reseda-ptah.livejournal.com/
In the right-hand column is a list of tags. Click “series: sailor moon”.

Actually, the only fic in that category is a short-but-epic Hellsing crossover 😀

There’s also, if you follow Neopets at all, the Sailor Neopets RPG. Lots of other people participated, but I started it and did the most writing.

I have loads of stories about pretty-looking, badly-developed otaku senshi that I wrote about before discovering places to upload my fic, for which I am very thankful. Maybe someday I’ll dig them out and draw them, or something.

Here’s how I think of them: They’re not part of the Shine universe, but they’re part of the Shine multiverse.

In practice, this means they won’t encounter the Shine characters under normal circumstances. But if one of them comes up with a method for universe-hopping (similar to fangirl portals), it could happen.
