Okay, everyone in the DP phandom knows about >this<post by now, right?
After looking at it a few times (and reading various people’s comments) I wanted to draw exactly what happened to everyone. So here’s my *slightly* altered version.
Ember. During a live, onstage performance, something went wrong with the pyrotechnics and the lights and caused a huge fire. Most of the fire surrounded Ember in a ring on stage, where due to smoke inhalation, she fainted and the fire consumed her.
Ghostwriter. He slowly drove himself mad because of deadlines (that’s what the big DEAD in the background means—deadlines), stress, being late for his work, not having enough done, maybe even being poor and needing money but just not being able to earn it…l eventually he had a stroke because of all the stress and died while typing.
Kitty and Johnny crashed while on Johnny’s motorcycle. They were both mortally wounded and were surrounded by fire and wreckage. They died together while holding hands.
Technus. While working with some highly explosive chemicals over a bunsen burner, he accidentally dropped the chemical over the fire and caused an explosion. He was thrown back into a wall that contained more dangerous chemicals, causing them to get knocked down into the already raging fire. He died by a mixture of smoke inhalation, fire, and a deadly combination of chemicals.
Poindexter. After being bullied for so long and so horribly, he just couldn’t take it anymore. He hated that he was treated differently. So he decided to make a point with his death. He’d show all those popular kids’ exactly what happens when you drive a kid to where Poindexter now was because of bullying. So with all the popular kids on the courtyard, Poindexter walked off the top of Casper High’s roof and died when he hit the ground.
Box Ghost. While Box Ghost was packaging some stuff to be shipped out, there was a malfunction with the machines behind him. A cable or a screw was loose and all the machines starting falling like dominoes. Box Ghost didn’t move out of the way fast enough.
Skulker. While hunting, Skulker set up many traps for unsuspecting animals. However, he forgot where some of his traps were. So as he was hunting in the woods, he accidentally set off his own trap. He was shot through the heart, lung, arm, etc, with his own poison arrows.
Lunch Lady. She never had that great of health because of her diet, and she was already getting on in her years. During her shift at Casper High, she began to feel somewhat woozy and dizzy. She had a heart attack an collapsed in the middle of lunch. None of the kids or staff noticed and she died behind the lunch counter before anyone called for help.
Walker was the head of one of Amity’s old Jails. Just as he was about to leave for home, some prisoners managed to escape, so he stayed and tried to get them back in their cells. But more and more prisoners escaped and he was losing control of the situation. One of the prisoners managed to grab a gun and shot Walker in the chest. He fell to the floor grabbing at his wound while the prisoners ran right over him, ignoring his calls for them to get back into their cells. He died on the floor before the last one left, crawling and grabbing at feet, trying to keep them from escaping.
Youngblood. Since he was born he was weak and ill, and had a terrible disease that couldn’t be cured. He used to watch the other kids play outside and wished he could be apart of that. So he used to play pretend with himself in his hospital bed, wearing a pirate hat and a fake hook. But he could never play for long because the little energy he exerted when he played was too much for his little body. He died as a child, watching the kids outside having fun.
This is the first time I’ve drawn almost all of these characters before. I’ve drawn Ember before, and… that’s it. lol That panel with Johnny and Kitty’s hands took me FOREVER to draw. You don’t even knooooow how many times I had to redraw that. Same with Walker’s panel. ffffffff :B
My favorite panels have to be Johnny/Kitty’s, Ghostwriter’s, and Youngblood. I just really had to draw this after seeing that one post.God, poor Poindexter and Younblood. I think those two had it worst off. Poindexter died trying to escape his torment but he ended up living in it for eternity, and Youngblood watching other children having fun playing around while he was stuck in a hospital bed. But at least Youngblood managed to get his freedom in death.
