Hi, my name is Jellyfishin! Maybe you might also recognize me by my other online handle, FinalVirucide (on deviantART and ArtRift), maybe not. In any case, welcome to my profile page!

I'm a hobbyist artisan crafter who's creativity runs on caffeine-fueled creative insomnia. I hope you enjoy what I have to offer. :)
@TailsDrawsJunk: Those panels were definitely the most fun to draw. I love ziznine's designs for this AU. :D
Oh, fooey, there's a glaring typo in Grillby's dialogue. Gonna have to fix that later when I'm at my computer.
This be the start of Mettaton's many dejavu moments.
@LKWayvern: yes, indeedy! I like to sneak in my avatar every once in a while (there's a less-obvious cameo in http://nib-mettaton.smackjeeves.com/comics/2740224/mirrored-memory-page-15/ if you missed it before and want to try and spot it).
@LKWayvern: yeah, I love ziznine69's interpretations for the other Swapfell-red characters (especially the Muffet in dreadlocks). It's a shame the other characters don't get as much fanart (although the Grillby version is somewhat popular in the Tumblr interwebz).
@UnlimitedMagic7: No worries, perfectly understandable (your reasoning is also the same reason why I do my comics in black-&-white as well, da struggle is real!). I look forward to reading the next pages and seeing this comic to it's conclusion. :)
Sonderengel - Dragged into an unknown world, Nib encounters a tiny Mettaton who isn’t at all what he seems to be.

(*Note: there's a weird jump in artvquality between this chapter and the previous chapter because the old chapter was a redone version. Apologies for the art quality drop).
In case it's not clear, Nib basically undid the curtain sandbags to get them to fall on Grillby and his mafia cohorts, to raise up a plume of sand as make a quick getaway.

In hindsight, it probably would have been easier to draw Nib using a bomb as a smokescreen, but I'm too lazy to redo this page so I'm just going to pretend Nib didn't use one here because a bomb explosion would be too much.
The song that Nib is singing here is "Mack the Knife" by Bobby Darin. It is a strangely upbeat murder ballad about a thief and killer, whose actions are being compared to the ferocity of a killer shark. Given the song's time period, the song lyrics are sometimes erroneously interpreted to be the activity of a mafia hitman, which is why Nib overall chose to start off the show with that song.

Some more fun history: Bobby Darin's "Mack the Knife" is actually a jazz cover of a song from a German musical drama called "The Threepenny Opera", which was introduced to American audiences in the 1930's. The musical drama later resurfaced off-Broadway in the 1950's, and Louis Armstrong would later go on to do a jazz cover of the song based on the off-Broadway version of the musical. Other singers of that time, such as Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald, would also do their own covers (again, largely based off of the 1950's off-Broadway version). However, Darin's cover (which is also based off of the 1950's off-Broadway version, but uses slightly different lyrics) is often considered to be the definitive version of the song.

Bobby Darin is also known for other popular songs such as "Beyond the Sea", "Dream Lover", and "Splish Splash (I Was Takin' a Bath)", which have a lot more tame and happy lyrics. But he seems to have this really odd penchant for doing upbeat covers of songs with more disturbing lyrics. If you're up to hearing another one of his disturbingly upbeat song covers, try searching up his cover of "Artificial Flowers" (from the musical "Tenderloin"), whose lyrics about about the horrors of child labor. O_o
Curtain Fall - Pennie's plans to help get Swapfell(Red)-Temmie and her human companion Chara out of debt results in Nib working for Swapfell(Red)-Grillby under less-than-favorable conditions.

Credit where credit is due: Swapfell(Red) AU is a community-driven/open Undertale AU, which a majority of the designed contributed by swapfellred-byziznine (tumblr).
Methinks Mettaton is being a sore loser here. ^^;
Omg, totally wasn't expecting a crossover with another one of my fave comics! :D
That's an awesome-looking splash page. :)
Aww, this splash panel just oozes of happiness. :3
Aww, poor Iolite, she seems to always get the short end of the stick.
I kinda wanna see Mettaton randomly turn moe now. XD
Darn, I wanted to see if Santa had a Chaos Break move.
Well, that gives a new meaning to the term "food fight".
The last panel: Dat realization.
Oh boy, that's gonna be one heck of a spanking.
