GND183 - Monster Hunters, part IV - Dead Ringer by Pika-la-Cynique GND183 - Monster Hunters, part IV - Dead Ringer by Pika-la-Cynique
Because Spuffy hits quite a few of the same spots as J/S... [at least when it's done by goodficcers like KnifeEdge ( [link] )]

[Someone pointed out his scar is on the wrong eyebrow - sorry, but I had this one magazine picture of him pinned up on my wall my entire adolescence with it on that side and I cannot change that Head-Spike. (and hey, Sarah's hair parting is on the opposite side of how it is in the movie anyhoo.)]

Buffy... may yet show up.

And as to the matter of what season Spike this is and the chip business - Who's to say he's truthin' ? I'm thinking for a "post-canon" Spike, the chip gives him a good excuse to act decent if he chooses to hang out with "good" characters, and an ace to play when least expected.

Also, Christine's anti-vampire stance was briefly mentioned in the Wibsy club introduction - basically - (the whole blood-drinking and sublimination of sexual urges aside)... what is the classic vampire if not a murderous aristo [often Frenchman] in period evening dress with hypnotic-esque powers hiding away underground and being predatory around young girls...? Been there, done that, starred in one of the original Gothic Romance tales. (Also, too many badphics think making Erik a vampire is such an original awesome idea...)


This is a work of fanart and solely intended for shits and giggles. Not mine, not making money from it.

It's funny when they get the job details and determine it's a no-go.

Buffy Characters? The metaness level is too high! The universe is collapsing!

Spike's scar is on the wrong side.

I kind of wish Harry Dresden had shown up just then -- James Marsters reads the Dresden Files audiobooks.

This makes me really wish for you to do a OUAT cross-over and bring the Knave in. You'd be able to do those gorgeous cheekbones of his justice... if you watch OUAT (/IW) that is. It's definitely one of my love-to-hate guilty pleasures. 
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2015  Professional General Artist
Ehhh. I totally understand the appeal of Robert Carlyle and guyliner-Hook, but not only did I not quite get into that series, there's also the sense that OUAT already being a great big mishmashup crossover-fest, it's kinda redundant to add to the Building-'verse...
EmmaLuisaRose Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2015
Yeeeahh, you defo picked up on my fave characters there :D *cough* even if Hook is a useless whatsit *cough* 
I do see what you mean though. Especially since you've made a point of Disney characters being fictional unless you say otherwise :P

Yeah, I've always had a soft spot for Spike, though I might not have if I caught more of his earlier episode.

and I must say, you caught his speech perfectly.

Am I the only one that heard Spike's voice as Anthony LaPaglia's character "Simon" Daphne's brother in Frasier?
Kyndsie Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I like that Jareth's text in panel... 8? (when we "hear" him before he see him) is slightly larger, communicating that he's doing his Big!Grand!Impressive!Goblin King type of speaking. :D

I also find it interesting how Jareth's first comment about not taunting someone who is powerless has so very many levels:
At face-value: Not very tactful there, love. Ease off.
Ouch! Personal remembrance: Because I didn't like it when you did it to me, and I don't like being reminded of that pain / embarrassment / ending I didn't like.
Snark: Even though this guy's apparently powerless *snerk* at the moment, so I acknowledge that you could probably handle him.

But Jareth's not one to miss an opportunity to declare his rights!

PLEASE include more spike if you can. He's my favorite Buffy character, though having faith or Wesley come around wouldn't be too bad either so long as it is post Angel for them. Kind of only really loved them after they started hanging out in LA.

also I have to ask why you stuck to season 4-5 Spike and not Season 5 Angel? Was it just for the whole don't taunt the powerless quip?
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Professional General Artist
You believe everything Spike says?
Like I mention in my notes above (artist comments are for reading!) the chip thingie is something Spike would probably like to keep mentioning, in this whole "post-canon" comic setting which is presumably after his whole story has played out - it gives him a plausible excuse to hang out with good guys, for which he did kinda acquire a taste (... not literally), and an ace up his sleeve to play in a tight spot when people think him powerless. Also, is kind of his more unique trait. Yanno. There are sparkly vampires, and angsty soulled vampires, and the chipped vampire...

sorry, i guess this was one of the few authors notes that i missed. can't read them all. though i do understand where you are going.

also i'm not a flamer or trying to start fights on the internet, i'm just curious about your writing process since i really like what you do. i actually really prefer your art as opposed to the roommate's stuff
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner May 29, 2013  Professional General Artist
Sorry I was a bit brusque. And thanks!
Otakukiller Featured By Owner May 29, 2013  Student Writer
no problem. have you ever considered doing a story without the fail wall? or i that your schtick?
Pika-la-Cynique Featured By Owner May 29, 2013  Professional General Artist
In this fancomic or original work?
Otakukiller Featured By Owner May 29, 2013  Student Writer
well, you clearly seem to prefer having this fail wall in the GND story, so i was more referring to any other works you might do later on

Spike's outta there because Jareth and Sarah has a relationship he's familiar with? Why? (I only vaguely know Spike is part of this show called Buffy the Vampire Slayer and I have no idea what Buffy is about)
ChetUnGwan Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
Spike had a crush on Buffy, who is a vampire slayer and basically has super powers. She wasn't killing him because of the chip in his head which gives him a literarily killer headache whenever he hurts humans. So he's the "masochistic immortal with a crush" and Buffy is the "bossy bint with the power."

Here I was catching up on GND when I start reading the monster hunter plot and think to myself Spike would be awesome in this section"... And YAY!!! Look who shows up!

BTW If this comic were in book format, I would be all over it. Like syrup on pancakes. I would never leave home without it.
