Um... vote?

Well, will you look at that - we finally get to see who the new character is! Woo!

So yeah, the new character is my author avatar. Now Block has someone to complain (He's a pretty complainy guy... complainatory? Complainestositynessous? I don't know.) to directly.

Now that the Krixwell is out of the bag, I can post the height chart I made, as well as put a little graphical decoration on the front page! :)

P.S.: Now that I look at it, I think my forehead might look kinda derpy. Might have to change it slightly later.
P.P.S.: This is the first str'p to make use of the word str'p!

(P.P.P.S.: Some people add more S's to "P.S." when they put P.S.-es to the P.S., but I think it makes a lot more sense to add more Ps, because P.S. means "postscript" (Latin "post scriptum"), i.e. "after the writing", or in other words, "written later". The part that means "after" is "post", so "post post scriptum" means "after the postscript". That makes a lot more sense than "post scriptum scriptum". My best guess for what that could mean is something like "after the writing writing", which... doesn't make a lot of sense. Wiktionary supports me in P.P.S. being the valid way.)

(P.P.P.P.S. Feb 18, 2014: That's too many postscripts.)
(P.P.P.P.P.S.: I'm not even kidding.)
(P.P.P.P.P.P.S.: Or am I?)
(P.P.P.P.P.P.P.S.: ...yeah, this is just ridiculous.)
(P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.S.: And---)
(P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.P.S.: Don't even start.)

Height chart!

An easy comparison! Yay! (The lines extend past Krixwell so that I can extend this later when more characters are introduced.)

Now, what can we tell from this?
  • Including hair/headwear
    • First of all, we see that including hair/headwear, Marc is the tallest character (130p), which is a little interesting, since he's also the youngest if you don't count me (I don't).
    • After him comes Block at one pixel shorter (129p), although Block being a wide character (therefore looking kinda big and muscular to me) (also with a huge nose) when compared to other characters (specifically, me) was what inspired the height chart.
    • In third, we have John (125p).
    • Victor (who is the same height regardless of whether we count hair/headwear) is tied with Nope Guy for fourth place (both at 122p).
    • Finally, Vee is at sixth place (120p), and I'm in last (116p), being the shortest character in both categories.
  • Under hair/headwear
    • In this category, I had to guess at where the tops of the characters' heads were. Some (like Block and Victor) were much easier to decide than the others. The heights here are still canon, though.
    • Victor is clearly the tallest in this category (122p).
    • After him in a tie for second place come Marc and Block (118p). Again, Marc is one of the tallest characters, while Block is kinda big and muscular. I guess it fits his name and to some extent his personality.
    • Fourth place goes to Nope Guy (112p). He's also slightly muscular, although he doesn't feel quite as big as Block does to me. It might have to do with the back of his head being visible.
    • John takes fifth place (109p) in this category.
    • Again, Vee takes sixth place (107p) and beats me by one pixel, leaving me in last again (106p).
So, in a better way of displaying the ranks:

Looks slightly messy at the ties, but it'll do.

Wrapping up

Wow, that's three images in one post, one of them made while posting. That's a new record! :p

I'll be back Monday with a new str'p, although it doesn't involve a battery's funeral. *spoilers*
