Webcomic Profile: 20 Times Kirby!

Description

20 Times Kirby!
20 kirbies, considered different from all the others by Kirby, go on a journey to find out their past... At least that's what Kirby wants, since he can't stand the fact of knowing nothing about them all. The answers come slowly, the suspense builds, and the question is, are they going to find out everything? Or are they just going to have random adventures, and never know all of it?

Updates Wednesdays and Sundays.

OKAY SO
Inside Out actually had some focus on Keeby being annoyed about Kirby's fame. I didn't really remember this because it's been a long time since I've read through 20TK.
Page one of Inside Out. Kirby is telling Kirsy and Keeby about Epic Yarn. Keeby reacts negatively to it.
Page two of Inside Out. Kirsy whispers something to Keeby but there's a cut before we see the rest of the conversation. Most likely this conversation was Kirsy telling Keeby to talk to Kirby, or something along those lines.
Page 12 of Inside Out. Kirsy says "Keeby, don't forget what I told you." Again, likely to involve talking to Kirby. Also in page 12, Keeby denies being jealous of Kirby.

So to sum up, the flashback in this page happened between Inside Out and Oh No. Specifically the evening following that chapter. But the next time we see Keeby, he's just kinda there in part 1 of Oh No. So whatever happened between those pages... is probably what we'll find out on the next page?

@Gigi19972010: As far as 'lately' meant, I was speaking more along the lines of the past several chapters, not just this one.

I also don't personally feel like having sillier moments in an overall serious chapter is a bad thing by any means. For this, it's less the silliness and more the fact that it's a fourth-wall-breaking joke that I feel is the issue here. The problem with that kind of thing is that typically, an acknowledgement of characters being inside of a comic tends to negate a lot of the value of the story itself. You saw this when I tried to do my own Tear in the Fabric segment and several people, yourself among them, took issue with the gaps in logic necessary to tell that story (how could an "anti-author" character properly wreak havoc and fight against the author character when if this kind of scenario actually happened the author would just remove the anti-author immediately).

When characters in a primarily story-driven comic make reference to their existence inside of a comic, it raises unfortunate questions and implications about their role within the story. Humor lightens the mood, but breaking the fourth wall breaks immersion. During an important, background-explaining chapter such as this, keeping readers invested in the story you're presenting is very important. Reminding readers that it's just a work of fiction reminds them that you're in control, that it's not a story that the characters themselves are writing, either that or raises the idea of "if they're aware that they're in a comic, why don't they take advantage of this" (or results in these fourth-wall breaks becoming instantaneously non-canon).

Hopefully that explanation suffices as to why joking around specifically with the fourth wall makes me have a hard time getting into the story you're trying to tell.

HOWEVER, being self-depreciating is never a good thing, either, Gigi. I don't think having a long-running comic with approximately 480 fans is a sign that you 'fail at everything you try to do'. People like your content for a reason. You've created a compelling narrative and characters people care about. You've been uploading for almost six years and fans from the very beginning are still around, consistently reading, and newcomers keep joining in on the experience you're providing for them. People also don't criticize things that they don't care about.

Not to mention, even if you don't succeed at something, you should never give up. Doing poorly and then never doing it again just results in that permanent idea of having done it poorly. Doing poorly but continuing to practice and get better until you do it very well results in a definitive improvement and a better understanding of things. Nobody's good at something when they start out, and even experts still have things to learn and things that they mess up from time to time.

@Gigi19972010: I thought ragequit was a word.

About his emotion changing, I think Keeby's breakdown is somewhere along the lines of Caiya's condition.

@Ultizeta:

High amount? Lately? In this chapter it's only the second time I've made the characters mention the comic itself, and the last time I did that was on part 3, many pages ago. Unless that's not what you mean.

Either way, I also just quickly reviewed this chapter's pages, and unless I'm missing something, basically all of them only have "serious" moments.

If I was overdoing it, for real, sure, it would completely destroy this chapter's tone, but I'm just throwing something less serious not often just to change a bit the pace. Maybe here it feels out of place? I personally don't think so, but oh well. I could just remove it. The thing is that I started using the term "ragequit" in the comic and forgetting that's not an actual word, so I decided to make fun of myself.

Maybe I should just not try if I'm gonna fail at everything I try to do anyway.

Wait what
So Keeby was actually going to talk to Kirby. Was Keeby then an imposter in Dual Destinies.

The relatively high amount of jokes like Panel 7 lately is making it hard for me to take the pages in which they appear in seriously. It just kind of feels out of place here.

@Gigi19972010: Well, I just mean the whole telling of the flashbacks to Kawpy, otherwise I'm fine. Sorry if this kinda annoyed ya, I don't want to rush, just want to figure it out.😅

@Elemental Kirby:

But there's no way I can just skip to the conclusion. Either way, this chapter doesn't have that much left, we're almost there (because Kawpy knows a lot, from now on we'll have a faster pace, and lots of more useful info).

"Can we share some experiences and impressions before we move forward again?"

"Oh, unless the audience has a problem with that, I think that's okay."

"Of course that's okay!"


...idk where i was going with this
