Sorry, maybe I wasn't as clear as I wanted to be. What I meant was that Rulue is certainly a reasonable woman, bu for the sake of "comedy", most characters she interacts with just happen to know the right combination of buttons to successfully set her off. In the case of my fic idea, Sig (obviously) wouldn't INTEND to set her off, but bringing up the sore subject of Satan would end up warranting an annoyed reaction from her.I don't think Rulue "loses her temper" as often as she get accused of, it's just that when a female character (esp. human females) has an emotion, people punish her more for it. I've already see enough fics that overplay a character's emotional state, and I don't think Rulue needs anymore. To be honest, I seriously doubt Rulue would get mad at someone for trying to be her friend, because because Raffina, Seriri, Oshare, Ms. Accord and Lidelle (and I guess you can count Ringo as well) have all had positive feedback from her. Rulue is not an unreasonable person.
I see a few of characters attack Rulue completely unprovoked in 20th for stupid reasons.
This is something I'd like to see actually. Satan and/or Ecolo being matched by in power by a REAL antagonist that can undo their powers for an extended period of time, giving the cast something of meaning to do. Personally, I'd like for the Count to be this antagonist, but I'd don't think SEGA can use him in a Puyo game. I doubt Ex will be appearing in any more future games due to the Tetris Company having half-ownership of him. As for Ms. Accord, you pretty much summed her up for me. The only additional thing I think should be mentioned in her case is that she and Popoi WOULD step in if they knew things would get too hairy for the Primp Magic Academy kids to handle.As far as Satan and Ecolo go, in Madou Monogatari, Meta-concepts such as Anti-Magic/Power Nullification don't exist. Marin also insists that Elemental Resistance isn't a thing, because magic supposedly powerful enough to bypass anything. I kind of pointed out that would kill the purpose for having different elemental spells, and I usually go by the rule,if everyone is a super no one is. Because if everyone has magic it's not really "special", and the whole magic can do anything because magic isn't appropriate when magic is the rule and not the exception. If it was Gandalf from Lord of the Rings or you have a handful of wizards in a modern setting, you can get away with that.
In order to deal with the Satan/Ecolo thing... you would have to suck them in another world or distract them with something (they are both overgrown kids, it wouldn't be that hard for someone like say, Count, Yoggus, or even Ouroboros (from the Ally light novel), to come up with something to divert their attention. There is also the fact that neither of them would be everywhere at once, and you would have Madou, Primp, Suzuran, Tetris, and Chronicle to cover. If problems happened on multiple worlds it would take time to contain all of it. As far as Ex and Ms. Accord, Ex is busy maintaining the dimensions and Ms. Accord tends to let her pupils solve their own problems.
Wow, Rulue's grandma was really a soldier? Guess it explains Rulue's brave attitude. BTW, what was Rulue's hometown like anyways? All I know of it is that Rulue grew up learning martial arts there, she ended up fighting her old master and fellow classmates after she learned of them being involved in some shady business, though she obviously wasn't exactly thrilled at the prospect of doing so. Also, I know I've read somewhere that Rulue is confirmed to have not had any friends before Arle.Now that I think about it, Marin told me once that her Rulue's grandmother used to be a solider (which was strange because Madou doesn't have any governments anymore). Given what Rulue's father does in the Catatshropher story, as well as where her hometown is, I would think the "family business" might be adventuring, i.e. "kill things and take their stuff", or exploring old ruins, like the one from Madou S. Another thing to know is that Rulue is often seen around rural or natural areas, with mountains and forests, meaning she might not have as much contact with the outside world, so there is a very good possibility she really did grow up without any friends, which is explains a lot about why she hangs out with Arle at her magic school even though she can't use magic (even though PC-98 Rulue wasn't even a martial artist, that was written later but it's a good explanation anyway).
Maybe someday, to be honest right now I'm actually more aiming to focus more on other characters and make Sig a bit less omnipresent in my works. Rafisol in particular is someone I really want to give some attention to.It doesn't have to be shippy, but maybe Sig would be aware of Rulue's obsession with Satan, and he'd notice that Satan not only NEVER returns the sentiment, but purposely goes out of his way to avoid her. Thus resulting in Sig comforting her, but not without some difficultly, of course (i.e. Rulue losing her temper multiple times, and threatening to "Rock Punch" the living daylights out of him).
I'm all in favor of helping that to become a reality, it's just that the past week or so has been a bit too rough for me, to do anything productive, it's also why the first real ''Return of the Doppelganger'' chapter isn't out yet.Hey there, everyone. It's been a while, huh? If no one minds, I just wanted to mention that on Tumblr, some of us have been wondering... maybe we should do our own unofficial Puyo project (maybe a webcomic) that sort of does the Puyo cast more justice. I'm not saying any of you have to get involved, I just wanted to bring it up.
What did I do, to be blessed with something so beautiful!?Also, @warelander... I think you're going to REALLY appreciate this...

Anyhoo, he isn't around here much anymore, which isn't exactly ideal for discussing something like this, but I can say that there isn't much of a distinct direction of who does what and what kind of positions everyone is going to have.
So far this hypothetical project is lacking in a distinct direction or leadership and I have been meaning to discuss this on Tumblr, where several others have shown interest in the idea, so I'll make sure I can get to bring some proper direction into it soon, just haven't had the time for it so far.
Uh, guys...well, I'm not saying we should give up on the project exactly, but...well, take a look at this:I don't think that would be a bad idea. I'm a member of the PPU site, and I am sure others on my Dischord would be clad to help.
What would I have to do?
I thought the same thing. You know, if we go by your little theory of 'the more alts. a "mainstream" Puyo character gets, the more likely they are for the next mainstream game', well... could we possibly be looking at Jan appearing in a mainstream Puyo game...?What did I do, to be blessed with something so beautiful!?
I'd generally like to know how interested you would be to actively help with the webcomic project, some other project isn't really any reason to give up on ours, if anything having many fan projects is a good thing.Uh, guys...well, I'm not saying we should give up on the project exactly, but...well, take a look at this:
I sincerely doubt it.I thought the same thing. You know, if we go by your little theory of 'the more alts. a "mainstream" Puyo character gets, the more likely they are for the next mainstream game', well... could we possibly be looking at Jan appearing in a mainstream Puyo game...?
