Flaky Gene Meme by falingard Flaky Gene Meme by falingard
So! Yes. Hello!
My name is Felix. Maybe you already know me, but... just in case there was still any doubt, I'll clear things up for you: It's true. I am, as a matter of fact, completely crazy.


This is -if you only read the description and don't look at the picture (the world upside down!)- a meme where rows and columns of female characters and male characters intersect, yielding hypothetical offspring. Exquisite silliness! Flaky Pastry: the Next Generation!

Notes about the characters I picked: No incest. No nuns. No one too far outside the "young adult" age group (i.e. no old men or teenagers, for example). Aside from that, sense is thrown out the window, and even robots can have children.

2014/03/09: So this is a work in progress. I'm posting it here so... people can see it and pester me to finish it. It's a form of insurance, y'know? Hopefully I won't need too much "encouragement"... after all, what's left is the FUN part!
Also note: this will be coloured

2014/03/10: Progress!! Actually, half the parents were already coloured when I first posted this yesterday. And the next update is likely to be not quite this fast. But hey, some uncoloured children have POPPED up. I'm doing these in random order, by the way.

2014/03/12: So far it looks like I didn't need much pestering! Coloured the first five children, and added four more! This is really fun. And yes, I admit it, I am not having a 50/50 split between males and females. It'll probably more like 60% female when it's done.

2014/03/14: Five more! Can you spot them??? Starting to see that some of these look similar... so starting to find some ways to unique-fy them. Which is good! Also: Now everyone has at least one kid (and only Marelle has just one).

2014/03/18: MOAR. Didn't think I'd have an update with more new males than females, but there you have it. Funnily, my hair looked kind of like Mistrale's today - except not pink. Here we have Zintiel's column completed, while Marelle's still has only one child in it... RANDOMNEEESSSS *shakes fist* Ah well.

2014/03/22: EIGHT more, this time! I've stopped doing them randomly in favour of re-balancing things... everyone has 4-6 children now. Only nine left to do! And then... ... ... gonna draw them full body. Probably not all of them, though given infinite time, I would, haha. I'll probably run some polls so you guys can vote on which of these characters you're more interested in seeing fleshed out further - visually, anyway. Cause yeah. Unlikely these will make it into anything, I'm just giving myself a new pastime XD Also of note: I've decided to post this file in higher resolution than before.

2014/03/26: How does a guy spend an evening on his birthday? Drawing for fun! Or colouring for fun anyway. So this is DONE! SO to speak. There's still the part where I'm running polls to see who I'll draw full body... Notice how I cut this into four "quadrants"? Anyway! Hope everyone enjoyed watching this unfold as much as I enjoyed doing it! :D

I've even made a little gallery for the ones that did get drawn so far!

I'm noticing a trend regarding dominant alleles; With the exception of Elves and whatever Marelle is, the child seems to take on the race (or at least most resemble the race) of the father.

Perhaps? Not a conscious choice

I also recognise Yrmstrae's hair colour. I've seen it on Lady Doom Fury.

Would you believe that is also a coincidence? :D

Varren reminds me of Henry "Hank" McCoy aka Beast.

The word you're looking for is "robot" or possibly "gynoid" as in "female android".

Anyway, she can have kids for the purpose of this meme because it's fun, as you'd know if you'd read the description and maybe some of the earlier comments :p
