fun-fact! - the turnip patch
version 2.0
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...
