Title: You know you're an insane SC2 fan[boy/girl] when...
Post by: alanahikarichan on April 08, 2008, 06:09:33 am
- You name EVERYTHING EVER after SC2. (Tamagotchis named ZEX, towns in 4x games named after species' homeworlds, female PCs named Talana...)

- You build a Pkunk Fury and a Spathi Eluder in the Kingdom Hearts II Gummi Ship editor.

- All your neighborhoods in The Sims 2 have at least one massive family of beautiful blue-skinned women, and you've scoured the internet for a scaly green skin and green dreadlocks so Admiral ZEX can be absolutely perfect.
-- ... and actually found the skin (http://"http://genensims2.com/skins/variant_09.htm"). :D

- You call everyone MONSTEROUS PERVERTS, say "Hold! What you are doing to us is wrong! Why do you do this thing?" on a regular basis, and now call Betelgeuse "Bugsquirt". :B

- You play the Captain in a pan-fandom RP, and are setting up a SC2-specific RP because you want to see if the fans can make a better SC3.

- You have a hopeless crush on Admiral ZEX, to the point where you sigh hopelessly about him and are loath to kill him for the sake of the Shofixti.


ETA:
- You have serious conversations with other fans about how a VUX would take recreational drugs. (... dear self: WTF. Love, self.)


Continue with your own~ and it's best if they're actually true. :3

-You run into a science classroom full of colorful, ball-and-stick atom model projects and think that the room is actually hosting a miniature Spathi invasion force

-You stare at gas giants using telescopes in the hope that you'll see glowy bits (you sick bastard)

-You go to the gas station to exchange Resource Units for Endurium (er, wait, wrong game)

...I already ran out.

It's so true.  I named my router Vindicator, my laptop Broodhome and my desktop Dreadnought.  My phone shows up as "Hyperwave Caster" on bluetooth. :P

-You regularly ponder if everything you do is influenced by a Dnyarri.

-You listen to Star Control/Precursor music at least five times a day.

-You use a Half-Life map editor to construct a Kohr-Ah Marauder to run around in.

-You use the words "frumple",  "slide maker", and "surprising toys" often.

-You call up your friends in the guise of Captain Fwiffo [even replicating his voice]

-You want Frungy to be an Olympic sport

-You blame your recent inactivity on a quasi-space portal

This doesn't exactly fit me, but if my phone didn't suck, I'd try putting the 3DO HyperSpace theme on it as a ringtone.

-You call up your friends in the guise of Captain Fwiffo [even replicating his voice]
I'd really like to get my hands on any voice-masking program or device that makes me sound like a Spathi, just for the heck of it. Certainly, at least ONE such thing exists in the world...

If it's any comfort, the Dnyarri don't sound like they were particularly subtle. You'd know.

You know what else is on PNF? Dozens of duplicate threads about favourite aliens, melee strategies and suchlike that you made.

Quote from: Valaggar
And there's another one on this forum as well.

These things tend to crop up every now and then. most new threads bring something new though, so it's all good.

- When the ringtone on your phone is the original Ur-Quan themes, loud enough to scare your coworkers witless when it rings
-When your background on your work desktop is a Orz Nemesis, and used to be a Arilou.
and to contribute

A few more:
-You compare everything you can think of to some aspect Star Control

-Many of your doodles look surprisingly similar to Spathi and their Urquan overlords

-You plan on making a short movie featuring Orz marines

-You frequently use Umgah theme music to annoy people

-You never know when to shut up about Star Control

Wow. Your ring tone sounds even more annoying than mine. Like a constant barrage of fusion bolts. Why didn't I think of that. Now I'll have to put the Shofixti glory device sound on mine.

- You play Hyperspace music when you drive to work. (Came close, I was playing something that sounded like it though.)
- Whenever you hear the term "Seeing red", you think "Don't you mean *smell* red?" (didn't make sense)
- Blue-skinned women easily arouse you.
- When watching "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi" and see Princess Leia in the slave suit, your first thought is to change the screen colors to make her appear blue in order to look right.
- You panic at the sight of caterpillars with the thought they will either enslave you, or "cleanse" you.
- You make mods for all sorts of games in theme of SC2.
- You make changes to your child's astronomy project to fit the stats of SC2 planets/stars.
- You steal extra mini-golf balls of all colors to make miniature Spathi Eluders for your pet snails.
  -- Taking a step further, you modify your golf clubs to look like Druug Maulers.
- You end up "fearing" raccoons because they are "evil ones".
- You think twice about having a bouncing ball anywhere near your car, in fear you might lose a passenger; unless you have a stun blaster, or shields.
- You attempt to use your phone (aka Hyperwave caster) on a spider, hoping to manipulate it to worship you and kill themselves.
- You wonder if any other sci-fis know about Quasi-Space whenever they jump into Hyperspace.
  -- If they mention anything of the sort (or similar; See Event Horizon), you wonder where Orz might be hiding.
- You start talking to plants in hopes they will become a sentient society.
  -- Ditto, except to mushrooms
  -- Ditto, except to snails
  -- Ditto, except to crystals
  -- Ditto, except to machines
    --- No thoughts about Skynet comes to mind
- After passing a kidney stone, you think you gave birth to a Chenjesu.
- You begin to worship your model DNA structure
- You attempt to buy fuel with animal encyclopedias.
  -- Or with egg sacks and/or cellphones ('casters).
- When watching UFO Files, you attempt to identify which ships belong to which race, according to their form.
- You believe Peter Parker worships Dogar and Kazon after turning into Spider Man.
- You think Dynarri would've been a better Hypno-toad in Futurama.
- You attempt to modify your computer/machine with crystals in attempt to amplify it's power.
  -- And if it works, you name it after a Chmmr.
- You think the Mythbusters should see if crystal-amplified bombs are possible.
- You watch politics as nervously as the first time you learn of the Ur-Quan Eternal Doctrine, and watch it on map.
  -- And you label the political maps in "Spheres of Influence"

Oops, missed this. Ringtones generally repeat, don't they? I assumed that if you have a short ring tone, it'd repeat itself once it plays out, the same way long ring tones do. Or is there some sort of limit I'm not aware of?

Bwahaahaa! No, no I'm not. XD I'm not half so awesome~

However, she did introduce me to the fandom. Via her ZEX-slash-Captain fangirling. IT KINDA RUBBED OFF A BIT. XD And by "a bit" I mean "I'm madly in love with a fictional xenophile, halp D: "

Or, to put it more succinctly:

Basically, some people in the SC2 fandom like Admiral ZEX a lot, to the point of having a crush on him and/or fully supporting his efforts to flirt with and seduce the Captain. Lukipela calls them soul-scarring deviant schoolgirls on speed.  :-*

-You try to get dates by wailing semi-seductively at people from a distance.

-You spend copious amounts of time trying to classify the ever-perplexing VUX according to Earth's taxonomy.  (Seriously, what are they?  They should be mollusks, but they're amphibious and bipedal.  Furthermore, how can the Shofixti be marsupials and rodents?)

-You call your species "erect hominids."

Is that supposed to mean that I've achieved some sort of lifetime award for nerdiness?  Wow, I feel simultaneously honored and humbled.  Further hammering that dissonant nail into the cognitive wooden board is that I've actually done everything else on that list, except for the wailing.

So, I might as well add more:
-You play the game's themes on your instrument of choice (e.g., a piano).
-You use such quotations as "Our bodies are almost exactly alike--except for...certain parts," "We can get to know one another...expand our interspecies relationship," and "What are those glowy bits?" as pick-up lines.  (Bonus points if your attempt is successful; bonus bonus points if you call your new partner your "darling human" or your "human love" afterward.)
-You try to make your own Star Control plushies.
-You repurpose the Styrofoam balls and pipe cleaners that come in solar system model kits to build a miniature replica of a Spathi Eluder.
-You begin to notice similarities between the Deep Ones and the VUX.
-You write at least one essay analyzing either the game or its fanbase/fandom.  (Bonus points if you write it in professional, multisyllabic language--or, to put it another way, Spock Speak.)
-You describe terrestrial animals by relating them to Star Control II aliens, rather than the other way around (e.g., referring to caterpillars as "tiny Ur-Quan," humans as "Syreen of other shades," cephalopods as "bodiless VUX," or mushrooms as "non-sapient Mycon").

Just came to mind. Applies to both male and female gamers, and couples, try this too!

-You quote the love scene with Talana and the captain as you make out/love with your girl/boy friend.
-You advise the above statement.
-You have dreams like I have quoted below. (See sig)

I had a dream in which I was abducted by aliens, but they were Syreen. By the end of it I ended up being the one probing them.
Three reactions came to mind here:
-You probed them with WHAT?

-So, you were a "Syreen-penetrator"?

-Now I want to be abducted by Spathi.


As soon as I get a boyfriend, I'm going to try quoting the Talana/Zelnick love scene.

I have zero ability to hold a tone, but I love to sing. Loudly. Usually I'll listen to music on my headphones while doing the dishes. It apparently sounds pretty hilarious when the Ur-Quan theme comes on and I burst out in Dum-dum-dum dudu dum, du du dum, du du dum, dum! and so forth.

I thought they were pretty much the same, or are you talking about the Precursors version? Just to clarify, I meant the original one, where (at least to my ears) there's not much background.

Personally, I prefer ZEX's flattery over the sex scene. "Beautiful, robust human" just rolls off the tongue~
I fully agree.  And it rolls right off the long, extended, batrachian tongue.

I think this is an excellent idea. I've always felt that the SC2 story could make a great movie, if not for the fact that you'd have to leave out too much to make it fit in two hours. (A tv series could work though).

But a musical, and I'm thinking of a stage musical, would work brilliantly. You can just have an alien come up and sing a few lines and then have it leave again. You wouldn't have to worry that you'd spent most of your time traveling hence and forth between planets, and you don't have to introduce all the species. You could sum up the reactions of all aliens to one event in just a single song. And all the aliens could be people in brightly-coloured, silly costumes.
A stage musical is so much more suited for the silliness of SC2 than a movie would be.

Those would be some elaborate costumes, there.  (That reminds me, does anyone know where to buy tentacle arms?  Gaia's link is broken, and searching for "tentacle" anything on there lands no results.)

Onto songs:

The Kzer-za would have a cool Villain Song, and/or their slaves could sing about how horrible their masters are.  Maybe the Kohr-Ah would sing an intense, menacing duet with their green foes.

The Spathi High Council would mix their countertenor, soprano, and sopranist voices as they retold the tale of the Evil Ones through song.  Fwiffo, too, would sing upon meeting the Captain.

The Thraddash would lyrically recount the glory of past cultures while simultaneously bragging about their toughness in rich baritones.

Talana would  have to have a contralto or mezzo voice.  Zelnick would be a tenor, young as he is.

As the only VUX who ever has any fun, ZEX would have a song to himself, one packed with military-related double entendres and sung in a light baritone (or possibly a tenor).


Yes, I have fun envisioning this.  (That's what happens when you're a deviant schoolgirl.)  Just imagine it!

A Star Control musical sounds amazing. Does it have to be with costumes though? I'm pretty unfamiliar with the rules for the genre, but couldn't you just make a CGI movie with singing animated aliens? Taking the game in account, I suppose it could even be an old fashioned cartoon. Maybe we should get Disney on the line and let them know we've got something that could be bigger than Fantasia?

-There is a car in your neighborhood (big surprise, in mine there is :P) which has "ZFP" in its register plate and you think the car turns on a small round that's REALLY small, but you remember though, that against larger cars the car must close distance immediately and give unrelenting tongue attacks until the enemy car or the car is destroyed.

NEW ONE!

When your steam friends conversations go like this


Battlefrank: are you going to try that game?
Osatox: Probably not... looks boring lol, I don't like Galaga type games much
Battlefrank: not like galaga AT ALL, dumbass
Osatox: I don't like it by the impression. How's that?
Battlefrank: it's not even an arcade type game like galaga
Battlefrank: trust me, it isn't boring
Battlefrank: what else are you gonna do?
Osatox: Watch T.V. and wait for my friend to come online
Battlefrank: failure.
Battlefrank: That game is the best game ever made and everyone who's played it agrees.
Battlefrank: stop being a dick about it and actually give it a try!
Osatox: Uhh, I'm not being a "dick" about it. What's entertaining for you, might not be for others. I'm skipping through a video about it, looks like a bunch of random videos and shit. I watch Aqua Teen Hunger Force when I want to see random comedy =P
Osatox: It looks retarded.
Osatox is now Offline.
Osatox is now Online.
Battlefrank: you are being a dick about it. you should at least try something before calling it retarded. I CAN FLING SHIT TOO, DUMBASS.
Osatox: Ok kid, learn something about life real quick. Just because you like something, doesn't mean someone else will. And when someone says 'no thanks' in a nice way, you don't try and force it upon them.
Osatox: You just look annoying.
Osatox: Suck my dick please kthnx
Osatox is now Away.
Osatox is now Offline.
Osatox is now Online.
Osatox is now Away.
Battlefrank: no. Right away you judged it without playing it. You are the dick. Do you hate those people who say mass effect corrupts our childs WITHOUT EVEN PLAYING IT? you are no different in the biased opinion.

- You have a hopeless crush on Admiral ZEX, to the point where you sigh hopelessly about him and are loath to kill him for the sake of the Shofixti.
I...Is that you zarla?
Bwahaahaa! No, no I'm not. XD I'm not half so awesome~

However, she did introduce me to the fandom. Via her ZEX-slash-Captain fangirling. IT KINDA RUBBED OFF A BIT. XD And by "a bit" I mean "I'm madly in love with a fictional xenophile, halp D: "

Or, to put it more succinctly:

- You know you're an insane SC2 fan[boy/girl] when you make this macro:

It's been some time since I last been on these forums, but that's freaking epic.

With Admiral Zex of all characters too. I bet he would have his own segment on how much he loves the captain, only to be surprise attacked by the demonic beast of "beauty" by the end of the number.

There's quite a few people in this thread (myself included) that have mentioned putting in a an SC ring tone, but every new one just makes me happier. I'm nurturing the hope that one day, on the bus or out on town, I'll hear one. That would be amazing.

  • At the end of a family prayer, you add, "Please don't let me die today."
  • You were sure you weren't intrigued by blue skin, chains, or tentacles before, but now you have your doubts....
  • When riding on an airplane, you don't worry about the plane running out of fuel because you're certain that the pilot will just contact the Melnorme in case of an emergency.
And as for the musical:

As strange as it sounds, I've been mentally planning an animated sequence of this very idea.  So far, it involves cannons, the VUX version of a disco ball, and intrusions upon personal space.  I've written the first few bars of the accompanying song, too, though it may need to be overhauled.

Also, I'm trying to think of a good reason for a bunch of Spathi to sing in a chorus.  The Safe Ones are probably all going to sing together at certain points, but that's as far as it goes as of now.

Commander Talana's going to belt the blues about her homeworld's destruction before her duet with Zelnick.
