This was so adorable I became an extreme diabetic and died five seconds after viewing it.
Thus, it may not be safe for Nico or Andre to look at it.

I seem to have become absolutely obsessed with absurdly adorable anime and animals.

I found the most delightfully odd comic yesterday: Kinokofry!
It's quite trippy at times, which makes sense because most of the main characters are mushrooms.
Your mileage may vary, but it appealed to my strange sense of humor.

Check it
I ran my D&D characters through through:
Zeike: 28
Studmaster: 68 (Though then again to make excuses I wasn't really trying to make a convincing character)
Then of course I ran 2 dreamaniac characters through
Andre: 8
Jake: 89 (50+ is considered to be excessively sue like)

Try it yourself

Niccolo got a 31. I regret the whole "demonic pact" thing. At least he doesn't angst on the outside. *sigh*
Also, to respond to my comic self's high score, the ridiculousness of the over-powered characters was one of the things that made me lose enthusiasm for Dreamaniac. I'll never regret it though; you've got to crawl before you walk, and you've got to write shit before you write gold.

I'd figure niccolo would be somewhere just a bit above zeike, did you make sure to not count the stuff andre forced on us?

Yeah, I did.
I ran Tal and Menna through, based on my plans for their characters. Tal got a 1, and while this could supposedly mean she needs spicing up, I think her character will do just fine. She's slightly-above-average looking, dresses practically for a soldier (She does get more armor eventually; her outfit is mostly what she could scrounge up for cheap at the nearest supply shop), and earnestly tries to get along with other people, rarely arguing or stating strong opinions.
Menna got a 17, and I was sort of expecting her to score higher. She IS the most attractive out of all the main characters; one of her traits is that she's tremendously physically attractive, but her vitrolic personality repels all but the friendliest and persistant characters... like Tal. She also possesses some unusual magical abilities (she's more suited to being a channeler then a magician) and gets along suprisingly well with animals (and move suited to being a shaman then a channeler.) Her magical career was chosen specifically to spite her family, which was made up entirely of warriors who scoffed at "book magic." The abuse inherent in the standard Elvan upbringing didn't help.

Just for fun I ran Arakune through the Sue-ulator (basic questions only). He's a 60...what?

I have a distinct feeling that the test is an attepmt to make those considering characters with ridiculous powers and an all-knowing state acquired through tampering with time space fabric to reconsider. I don't think it has enough options for de-Sueing whom have the above balanced by unstoppable insanity and kitten hunger...

...not to mention your body melting slowly into goo, bones, and insects. Seriously, that would subtract several points right there.

Xivlan got a 23.

I wouldn't say he's much as angsty as he is batshit insane. I love how batshit insane isn't a Sue criterion. The "not reacting to things like a human would" also helped.
What is the true path to victory? I say start with Flashman's stage.

So, I downloaded Pencils, a program Niko told me about long, long ago.

It is a beast of a program. Either that, or I'm simply not used to the sexiness that is vectors. Either way, I think I've found my new default art program.

Niko, I owe you one. Would you prefer me to link you to an art program, a game (freeware, of course) or something else entirely?

Fascinating. He attempts to put up a facade of intelligence via large words and wanton cruelty to the common comma. Quite skillful, really.

This guy is really a pro. His only tell was the incorporating politics into the topic.
*edit* also boarding school is a common use to allow for ignorance without making it obvious you're a troll.
Example: blank happens, 2 months later "I just got back from boarding school, and how in the heck did blank happen?"
