The League: Social Media
The League has called and this time I am stumped. This week the League has asked us to take a look at what the social media of a fictional character would look like. It's a great opportunity for a character study, but who to study. . . this is going to be one of those stream of consciousness posts. . . I can already feel it.
I keep coming back to the world of Eternia, and the most interesting to me would be Skeletor mainly because I think he would just use it to flame other characters. And it would look something like this:
He-man is a mussel bound Nincompoop.
Skeletor, If you can't say nothing good. . .
- Prince Adam,
He-man Hey I know that one, my mother used to tell me that . . . Don't say anything at all ; )
Others on eternia would just say what they are doing
Orko - Trying a new spell.
Orko - Ooops it blew up in Man-at-arm's face. . . again
Man-At- Arms ORKO!
So in a way I don't think it would be much different than their dialogue is already.
What I would be curious to see is what the 80's cartoonsphear of social media would be like. If all of the characters from different franchises communicated.
I would imagine that There would be a lot of fighting in that. So you would have all of the villains trying to be the most villainous, and things like that.
I would imagine that there would also be a lot of franchise fighting. the Transformers would be fighting with the go-bots, and MASK would be fighting with G.I Joe. But there would also be groups. you would have Leader Groups where all of the leaders could get together and talk about the burdens of being a leader. I would love to see Leader - 1 and Optimus prime in some of these social media conversations.
There would also be barbarian groups with Thundar, and He-man and any number of other fantasy characters. But I would also imagine there would be advocacy groups where the characters could share their public service announcements!
What do you think, what fictional social media conversations would you love to see!
