Wrapping up the Good Omens crossover with an appearance from the Horsepersons, plus the Death from Sandman. (She’s had brief appearances in Shine before.)

The Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse meet for lunch.

Famine: Nothing for me, thanks.

Death: Ooh! Do you have milkshakes, with those crazy straws?

Famine: has adapted to the industrialized world by encouraging fad diets.

Famine: So…you’ve all heard the rumors about what’s coming, I suppose?

Pollution: took over from Pestilence after the discovery of penicillin.

Pollution: The apocalypse? Hah! Probably a false alarm, just like the last one.

DEATH: Cuter when the hood and cloak are off.

Death: The last one was real. It just got…interrupted. This one might just go as planned.

War: Beautiful. Just don’t get too close.

War: Oh, I think it will. This time it’s going to go down the old-fashioned way. My way.

…just as soon as he gets through fanboying.

Major: OMG it’s War! I LOVE war! I love holocaust, I love blitzkrieg, I love aggressive war, I love defensive war, I love sieges, I love breakthroughs, I love withdrawing, I love mopping up, I love retreat, I love every aspect of war that takes place on this earth!

AAAAAH OMG That is perfect. Why didn’t I think of that?

Oh, I forgot about this idea. Major as a fanboy for War and as a fanboy for Integra both made sense to me. I even imagined his cyborg body being steered by a little fanboy version of him, ala some of the aliens in Men in Black.

To tell the truth, I’m not surprised that the Major WOULD show-up clinging to War’s wrist.

But in all seriousness, I suppose that this is the new thread. So naturally, I would like to hear why Yumiko would set the British Library aflame.

That is one of the best ideas ever. 😀 😀 😀

I like the way Famine and War look.

Death of Endless?

As much as I love seeing her (which is strange, in a way, considering what she is. But I can’t deny it, she’s so damn cheery I just love seeing her) I’m not sure she would be the appropriate Death for this, unless this is just a gag strip. She has always said that she is not something that takes sides or goes out with a will to spread death. She just IS. No more, no less. The very act of Death, not simply an incarnation. So it would seem strange that she would meet up with the Horsemen with the intention of willfully spreading death. She is death, she just happens. She has no agenda.

Well, my rant is done, and it was probably very confusing. The God of Writing (One of several) that is NEIL GAIMAN (Caps for respect) made those seven entities very hard to describe in language and words, even if you get the concept of them, just a little, in your head. So I probably stumbled a bit. Hope it was clear enough.

*giggles* War has a fanboy

That…was adorable. 😀 And yay! It was the REAL Death! And since it’s Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, it’s still part of the continuity! Hooray~!

-raises hand- I thought the “Death” in Good Omens was a totally different one than the one in Discworld or Sandman. I’m guessing it’s easier to make it the Perky Goth than making a skeleton (I tried. it’s time consuming and hard-to-do from memory if you don’t know the “Bones” Song.)

It’s implied the Death in Good Omens is Discworld Death’s boss from Reaper Man.

Mars on Sun Jan 11, 2009 5:46 pm

You mean the guy who’s as large as the sky? o.o He must’ve watched Joan of Arcadia (because in that series, God would appear in different forms from what I’ve heard.)

Xuanwu on Sun Jan 11, 2009 6:17 pm

Right. They have the same name, I believe.

Mars on Sun Jan 11, 2009 8:16 pm

Yep. Both of ’em are “Azrael”. I kind’ve thought that the semi-us world would have their own Death (But seeing as we have issues agreeing on anything, I guess Azrael just said “forget it.” and worked on shrinking.)

Re: Comments related to Death of the Endless.

Much as I love her, my favorite endless easily has to be Destruction. Never mind the fact that with the exception of our different colors of hair and facial hair we look alike….he’s fun is all. But then again I guess that reflects his nature as one of the endless.
