fun-fact!
Too gosh darn many fun-facts, not enough actual writing. =p Haven't had much time for anything lately.

My fun-fact for the week: In Touch the World, I was going to kill Pargan off, but I couldn't bring myself to do it.

The original idea was that Heero and Duo went off to talk to Pargan about Relena's upcoming nuptials, and then while they were there, government/EUW assassins were supposed to come by and try to finish off Heero (and Duo), but they only managed to kill Pargan off instead, which enraged Heero enough to go after them.  Heero's signature line from that scene would have been, 'They killed Pargan... I LIKED Pargan!!!'  There would have been some serious war-pathing going on after that.

...But I couldn't bring myself to kill off Pargan.  I like Pargan. ^^' I even thought about just hurting him a little, which could still send Heero off on the warpath... and I couldn't bring myself to hurt him, either. -_- He's an adorable old dude.



If you or someone you know would like to submit a question for a q&a funfact session, please do so in this post.

Pargan is a cool old guy. ^___^ He's like your ideal grampa - with style. And that secret slyness that you just *know* your parents would Not Approve Of. ^_~

I imagine him as having a *very* interesting past, that no one under 50 would have the slightest clue to. I can also see him being friends with Howard; kind of an Odd Couple thing. ^______^

Pargan the Wonder Butler totally needs his own spin-off series.  I think he even beats out Watari the Wonder Butler from Death Note.  They're both old butler dudes with an intriguing set of abilities, but I think Pargan wins because he's more mild-mannered on the surface.  Makes me think there's a lot more about him that I don't know. ^_^

Still waters run deep and all that crap? O_^ I wonder if there is a similar saying in Japanese culture...

Yep, old Pargan is a lot more than Just A Butler. ^____^

I'm much relieved that you did not kill Pargan. ^______^

I kind of like the idea of Heero on the warpath because someone hurt the old dude, though. ^_^ Much more amusing than him going off to save Blondie just because the old dude asked him to.

Oddly enough, I'm pretty sure I remember being afraid something was going to happen to Pargan at that point when I read Touch the World. I was greatly relieved (and remain so) that you didn't hurt him!

Yeah, you'd totally expect something to happen while they were visiting him, wouldn't you?  Otherwise it's a pretty boring, peaceful little visit to a retirement colony!

Unfortunately, I haven't the will to write a straight-up action adventure, nor the commitment to hurt Pargan, so it was a pretty boring, peaceful little visit to a retirement colony. =p
