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

Who are your favourites? Follow these links to vote:
>>Quadrant Alpha<<
>>Quadrant Beta<<
>>Quadrant Gamma<<
>>Quadrant Omega<<

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

Jean. Just,  Jean. I'm pretty sure Leslie and Morgana is the crackiest of crackpairings, and highly, highly unlikely to happen, but if it ever did, and Jean became a thing that exists and has relevance to plots and such.

Then the world would be a better place.

Now I'm furious! How come there is no Nitrite x Zintiel on this chart??!! I know MUNDANE biology won't permit it, but Zintiel, being the harbinger of chaos, and everything, just has to have some spell for doin' it!!! I'd also like to see the other female + female combinations. (No male + male though, now THAT would be just silly)
Joybuzzer Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2014 Daran.  Guess it would just be odd with her dad on the list.
falingard Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2014
That's pretty much it, sorry! ^^;

Not upset.  I just found her interesting in the comic :)

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
