PKMN Skies: Cave Story, Bro by Dr-InSean PKMN Skies: Cave Story, Bro by Dr-InSean
:iconpkmnskies:

This is an Item Gathering submission for mining the caves of the Floating Island...Probably a little weird to submit such a civilian scenario when Deoxys is on the loose (especially since Asuka and Gawain are actively hunting the alien)...I'm imagining this takes place after everything gets settled and things return to normal.

I imagine normal most people will be visiting the caves just to mine for materials, but Asuka and Gawain read news bulletin a little differently (well, Gawain read it and Asuka listened).  This isn't a mining cave infested with Pokemon battles, this is a cave of battling Pokemon that you can mine.

Since the idea for this comic is to highlight Asuka and Gawain's worldview clashing with a regular person's, I thought that there was no better guest-star than Dixie, a friend of Asuka and Gawain.  She's a very laid-back person and hates battling so, if ever there was a person who could be weirded out by Asuka's enthusiasm, it's her, heh heh...I just hope Asuka didn't weird her out too much...

I used a picture as the panels borders/background/whatever you want to call it.  I thought regular white borders would look too blank and boring in some of the more spacious areas and I was too lazy to draw my own stone texture...Please don't hate me.

Director's Commentary

- Dixie is created and owned by DarkraixCresselia.  I hope you don't mind that I borrowed her.
- The title is a combination of Cave Story (a game I've never played) and the phrase, "Cool story, bro" (a phrase I've never said).

Well, Yami, I don't appreciate your barging in here like you own the joint!  Several months of rent would most certainly beg to differ with your world view!

(Oh, thank you.  Did she like them at all?  Though, I have to wonder how my arts even come up in conversation if she has yours to look at.)

Asuka... you are OBSESSED! (I wonder if Gawain would pull his hair out in frustration, if he had any.)

I've never played Cave Story, but I enjoyed this comic. Poor Dixie though, she's so confused, it seems. :XD:

Obsessed?  Naw!  I prefer "reasonably enthusiastic."  Considering Gavin trained to be a knight but never got to fight anyone or defend his kingdom, I think he's just as "reasonably enthusiastic" as Asuka...He could probably do without her standing on his head, though.

Heh heh heh.  Yeah, poor Dixie really didn't know what she was getting into this time.  It boggles the mind how she ever became friends with these two.

I haven't played Cave Story either (I just know it's a thing), so I'm glad you could enjoy this comic!  Thank you very much for the comment and the fave!

That's a positive spin on it!
Ah, I see. I guess that makes sense, but Gawain seems to be more subdued with his excitement, then.

Perhaps their personalities and Asuka's excitement are contagious and nice to be around.

That game is on my to-play list for one of these days, though.

You're very welcome! ^^

Well, when you're insane and delusional, you get pretty good at spinning things, heh heh.

That's true.  Gawain and Asuka have similar interests, but Asuka's still pretty young and never had much direct parenting, so she's never really learned to turn down her volume, so to speak.  Gawain's considerably older (even without the the "time travel") and was personally mentored by a proper and well-behaved knight, so he has a better handle on acting like an adult and seeing the world in broader and wiser terms (evidenced by how he consoled Asuka on dealing with loss and appreciating life while it lasts)...But, as you saw at the Valentines dance, he can cut loose with the best of them too (pun not intended, but I kept it even after I realized it...I apologize).

Asuka's loyal to any person who wants to be he friend and Gawain enjoys being part of a society he didn't fall asleep through, but I think the bulk of this relationship falls on Dixie's shoulders.  Her owner describes her as "a sympathetic bartender," who listens to anything people want to get off their chests and is good at consoling them.  That's exactly what happened when Asuka met Dixie in a chat event.  I didn't own Gawain when Dixie's owner first RP'd with him, but I wouldn't be surprised if something similar happened there too.

I don't know anything about that game, but the general vibe I get is that it's supposed to be good.  I hope you enjoy it when you get around to playing it.

Wait, we can mine? Totally forgot about that! XD I'll have to do that sometime. Anyway, I'm not sure if the whole family will enjoy battling and mining Gawain, but I can't fault their enthusiasm even if they haven't completely got the right end of the stick. Poor Dixie, the joy of friendships with random residents. XD

It seems like a lot of people forgot about the mining.  I guess being at the bottom of that Town Projects Journal, it literally got buried by all of the other news.  I'll have to keep my eyes open for what you come up with...Hope Miri doesn't run into any of those ferals; Deoxys is enough trouble for one lifetime.

Heh heh heh.  Gawain's enthusiasm is certainly to be admired...but it's probably a good thing he doesn't have any kids.  He's been asleep for a billion years, though, so he needs a few to catch up to society.  And Asuka...Okay, she's a trainwreck.

It's a strange, strange world we live in if a pacifist like Dixie is able to befriend two maniacs like Asuka and Gawain.  I hope things don't get too strange for her...

When in doubt, just shut up and go with the biggest guy in the room.  That's how it works in nature.  That's how it works everywhere.

I'm not sure either of those two qualifies as an adult, but they are amazing XD

Whaddya mean they're not adults?  Neither one of them knows how to pay taxes, one can't read and the other one doesn't know what a car is...but they're good at fightin'!  They're the very model of adulthood!

Thank you very much.  I'm glad you like these two goofs.

Thank you!  I'm glad you liked this and that I could get Dixie's reaction right!

From the comments I've gotten on this comic, it seems a lot of people forgot/didn't know about the mining; I'm glad my goofy comic could jog your memory and give you an idea...I hope Rolly doesn't go wandering in those caves, heh heh.

What a coincidence, I haven't seen Snow White in a long time either...Like...I don't think I was even 10 the last time I saw it...It was back when they re-released it to theatres sometime in the 90's...It was actually the only time I've ever seen the movie...

Oh, look at that.  I referenced an older picture to draw Dixie from the front angle, but I never paid close enough attention to see that her colors have changed.  Thanks for letting me know, because I have another idea for Dixie...at some point in the future (gotta do some other things, so I don't know when I'll get around to it).
