My only guess would've been April (or maybe Elisabeth?) from For Better or For Worse....
Gundam Wing has hot guys, kick-ass women and mechs. Hellsing has hot guys, kick-ass women and guns. ^_^ Ah, the joys of anime.

The problem with that is April's Canadian, why would she be in an American class? Though if it is I sincerely hope she survives since she is the ONLY person in FBOFW that has her head screwed on right. (Well, a couple others, but lets face it, her own creator hated her)

Keep in mind that "present day" in the Shineverse is 1999. The character in question isn't a twelve-year-old in current newspapers - she's college-aged ^_~

Yeah, it is. It just doesn't really play the Canadianness up much, just one time, and that was so morons readers didn't think they were in London, England rather than London, Ontario.

At any rate, I'm drawing a blank, every character I can think of either is blond or runs on Comic Book Time.

Well, we know he never became a husband (Integra's mom was an Indian prostitute he frequented), but at least he cut the mustard as a father.

Not in the Shineverse. Remember who Integra's other grandfather is.

I guess I shouldn't be suprised that Wooster isn't doing much for the war effort. Even if Jeeves wasn't able to use his own vital role to get him excepted, he would probably have got him out of that predicament with some vague medical excuse.

Ooer, I'd have to guess she became very stern and officious to counteract that background and her father's over-liberal attitude. Integra is really an amazing character.

Hey now. He may not be serving in the military, but he's relocated to Brinkley Court, where he's helping to take care of a bunch of the children evacuated from London.

Even in Hellsing proper, Arthur had calmed down quite a bit by the time he became a father. (Remember the flashback segments in which he's teaching her? He's a typical strict older dad.)

Gives them a good cover story for Walter too.

Eh, that's great artwork and story set up in today's comic (07/18/10). But I'm a little uneasy with the idea of Hobbes looking like a realistic tiger that walks on all fours.

Hobbes (and thus Calvin as well) has obviously now taken a level in badass because of the attacks.

Doesn't mean he won't go back to the adorable fuzzball we love once everything's over. He's a tiger after all- they know when to be badass and when to seem harmless. :D

A little late to the party, I think, but I gotta say - Hobbes is epic.

Oh, and I just feel like mentioning that I got my sister into Hellsing (I can't seem to keep her out of my room - she keeps sneaking in to read the manga...). And then we spent some sisterly bonding time reading SHINE today. She scared our poor cat with her happy shriek when we got to the "Body Swap of the Invaders" storyline. She's a Millennium fan. :P

Finally registered on the forums so I could say that the Calvin and Hobbes stuff is both adorable and epic. Looking forward to whatever further crossovers you've got planned for the big finish. Whether or not the Doctor actually puts in an appearance, I think I might have to write a fic about Eleven and Amy taking on a squadron of freaks or something.

That said, I'd take bets on Walter and Girlycard being found in a compromising position, but... this is a Fangirls story-arc. ...bets on them NOT getting caught in an awkward spot? Any takers?
