fun-fact! - the turnip patch

fun-fact!
Yay not supposed to be working any overtime this week.  Lessee if the ol' turnip will write the rest of watering hole chapter for me...

In the meantime, a fun-fact quickie: the Jurgensen family name in Touch the World was taken off the side of a building that I used to walk by every day on my way into work.  It was like a world market or something, and it was painted there even though the building itself housed no such place.  Must have been a past business.  The sign had a classic style to it.

And then a fun-fact reversal, just to liven things up: what does everyone think of that dippy blond pansy?  I named him Karl, but I could have given him a far more pansy-ish name.  I seem to recall one fic naming him Eustace.  Why aren't there more fics with him in it, anyway?  That'd be amusing.  I had a lot of fun with him.  He was... such a pansy!  Why was he even in the series?  Except to show what an awful upper-class boarding-school world Relena lived in.  It's no wonder she fixated on Heero if that dude was all she had as an alternative!

I thought of him as a red-shirt. I sort of assumed that at some point, where the MS and gundams were duking it out near the various schools, ol' "Karl" wound up as collateral damage. ^___^ He is a good example of what royal inbreeding leads to. *snerk!*

Well, I guess it's only slightly less dignified than being shot in the back by Duo, a la Touch. =)

I dunno... I always kind of felt sorry for poor 'Karl'. I kind of imagined he was more in the Relena 'inner circle' prior to the series, and the poor sap probably thought he had a chance. And then along came Heero, and it's really a wonder he didn't just jump off that cliff Relena was prancing around on. ^^;

I always picture him as the kind of guy who would come back in some chibi omake episode.  =D  Where he'd keep getting left behind in the dust and otherwise utterly ignored by the other characters while he tries to get their attention.

Of all things, though, I always felt the most sorry for him because he didn't have a name!  Makes me want to go dig up my discs and see if his character appears in the credits...
