1. Haha, well, normally I love to answer questions, though in this case answering any of those story-related questions would fall into major spoilers—but, without giving anything away, I can address the following:
There is a link at the top of this page, ‘ask me a question and I will blog an answer’ for anyone to ask a question as either a tumblr user or an anonymous entity. Answering questions gives me more to blog about, so ask away!
Tango has not appeared previously in Mega Man Recut. 
Like any criminal organization, the Syndicate prefers to operate in secrecy. Revealing their presence to the law-abiding world would be detrimental to them (in other words, they are not planning a ‘hail hydra’-esque moment where all hell breaks lose). As of now, most of the good guys, including Mega Man, Roll, and Dr. Light, have no idea that such a robot mob exists. …That’s as much as I will say about that.
Roll, Proto, and Rock have a complicated relationship with one another. Whether family ties to one another are strong enough to get and/or keep them together or break them apart is a dynamic that will constantly be tested.

  2. design-escape:

    once upon a time I said that whenever you finished Recut I would go to one of those self-publishing websites and get myself copies of seasons as books

    I did not lie

    (and also i couldnt wait for all of them to be done i had to have a Recut book already)

    http://i.imgur.com/kflAkRx.jpg

    It’s 581 pages of text in either 7 or 8 point font, i forget, and heavy as a dictionary and i am very happy with it (i really hope you do not mind that i did this and if you do then Large Apologies)

    /flops off into the distance

    Wow, that’s seriously awesome and very much makes my day (seeing something I wrote in print, getting the chills, haha)~ Thanks for sharing! I do not remember such an account from you nor would have I ever thought you would be serious. XD That looks great, really like the cover! Ah, Mega Pinocchio. Good times.

    :D :D :D 

     

     
     
  3. Anonymous said: So I read somewhere a while back that Bass will be making an appearance in season 3, will you be paring Roll and him together or will it be a wait and see kinda thing?

    Haha, a ‘pairing’ question, that’s so cute.

    Anything to do with season 3 will generally fall into the ‘wait and see’ category, because there will be definitely be some development between now and the end of season 2 as there was between The Beginning and season 2. Right now, we know Roll is curious about love, but hasn’t been very serious about any of her potential ‘partners,’ at least yet. We also know she hates Wily and everything to do with him, especially his bots. We don’t know anything about Recut Bass yet (Well, I do, of course—but I’m keeping his character under wraps). Maybe there will be a mutual spark of kindred spirits between him and Roll, or a bitter hatred stemming from his game-counterparts hellbent quest to kill her brother, or maybe they’re paths won’t cross at all. It’d all depend on what kind of person he turns out to be, where that character goes, and whether he’s ally, enemy, or other.

    As far as the future of Roll’s ‘love life’ goes and as much as I can tease—maybe she has to wait until season 3, or maybe she’ll find someone in season 2. There is at least one other robot we’ve already met that is interested in her, though his chances are as slim as a snowball in hell of ever attracting her mutual affections. You’ll have to see, there are always a lot of possibilities between characters we’ve met and characters we’ve yet to meet. There’s also nothing saying that Roll’s going to end up with anyone either—she’s always been independent, and maybe she’s fine out she’s not really all that interested in finding love after all. Plus it doesn’t help she’s got an older brother with a plasma cannon and a massive criminal record who’s going to make it difficult for anyone going after his little sister. ;)

     
     
  4. So I write Roll to be at odds/hate Proto in Mega Man Recut (much like her canon counterpart does in the cartoon) but I actually think if things had gone differently in Season 0, she’d have a much closer relationship with her brother, as both of them share being free-spirted and rebellious at heart, much to Rock’s and Dr. Light’s anxiety.
Maybe when she learns the truth about his origins that will change. :)

  10. Sorry I haven’t been posting as much lately. I haven’t drawn for fun in a really long time. I’m still working on the next chapter though, and that’s what’s important, right? :)
This is a concept sketch for Recut Terra. I don’t draw dudes with long hair much.

  12. Alien Ramble, notes, and stuff

    …and it is rambly, be forwarned, this post is more about tying up lose ends than perhaps coherency but that happens! Last one then I’m moving on to new content, this is just to give some context behind the comic.

    Never thought I’d be making an origin story for the universe of Recut that didn’t start in a bar, it sorta just happened!

    I always knew I definitely wanted to do something with aliens, but I hadn’t quite nailed down what when I began writing Recut, so I left some strands open-ended, using alien technology to *occasionally* explain the explicable events in Mega Man when mad science falls short. Classic Rockman canon is chock full of aliens, and Ruby-Spears Mega Man really had no set consistencies with it’s universe’s logic…so, aliens? Why not. Who doesn’t love alien robots? :)

    I combined the story lines from Super Adventure Rockman and Rockman 8, with the event of Rockman 8’s first cutscene taking place waaay before the events of the present. Ra Moon/Ra Thor play the part of the nameless evil alien robot who brought evil energy to Earth.

    The crystals that Wily used for shrink rays are not related to Duo or Ra Moon. The chronitons from Future Shock are related to Duo; they are remnants left behind when robots of Duo’s kind travel through space, they use time travel to freeze themselves and slow the decomposition of their parts. Though he’s been around since the beginning of time, physically Duo is not billions of years old. (don’t force me to pin down the exact numbers, but physically he’s around only a few thousand years + the few thousand he was ‘sleeping’ in Earth). He still posses some time travel ability, as evidence with his ‘healing’ ability that he used in part 5 of The Mega Man in the Moon, but his ability to skip years was lost when Ra Thor attacked him. 

    Duo’s race of robots came from the end of time back to the beginning of time to correct the flaws of the universe. Duo and his kind were guardians, not originally sentient, but capable of evolving AI, similar to an advanced android. After nearly dying from decomposition and then spending some time with the Stardroids while he recovered, Duo began to develope sentience, and would go on to become lonely and unsatisfied with his original task of searching the vast universe, especially when life began dying out. Because the Stardroids guarded over our solar system, life on Earth survived through time and the first few humans came about, which was around the same time Ra Moon invaded the solar system (just when the life started to get interesting and able to choose between good and evil).

    Ra Moon’s history goes about like the comic. My biggest influences for Recut’s Ra Moon are ‘Ancient One’ from Lovecraftian mythos and AM from I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream—but his personality/motivation is more like the Joker from The Dark Knight. He’s not a schemer, he’s more of the universe’s biggest dick; he exploits his phenomenal cosmic powers for evil for no other reason than he’s bored, he has no like peers, he’s the biggest bully in the playground, the torment of others amuses him, and no ones stopping him.

    Skipping forward, Duo and Ra Thor head Robot Interpol. Duo has not revealed his alien origins to anyone. He does not feel guilty about this, bottom line is he strongly feels it’s for the best, and if you’d seen any science fiction movie with alien robots you might agree with him. I like to think Ra Thor, being Duo’s opposite/compliment, DOES feel guilty about keeping it a secret from the R.I.P. officers, who he considers friends, and tends to break his word to Duo by casually dropping alien references into conversations. The officers have yet to pick up the meaning. (Ra Thor: “We did a good job bringing in a jewel thief running amok in Eastern Europe, but now we need to concentrate our efforts into the robo-pirates in the Indian Ocean—oh, and by the way, Duo and I are aliens.“ Officers: “lol you’re so weird. So what are should we do about the pirates?”)

    Someone suggested in the last art poll that I draw Terra, and that is a crazy excellent idea dunno why I didn’t think of him or the other Stardroids sooner, I will definitely be drawing most if not all of what was requested, especially Proto Man (Totally was not expecting Proto Man to get so many votes, and for Bass to not get any, but hey, I’m not complaining Proto is the greatest)
