So I found this document that tells the history of 4chan from his POV and other sources. It's tl;dr but quite frankly it makes board tan storytelling an interesting endeavor. Document in next post.

This is a big overhaul to previous ideas, but in mind, I've always thought that the boards are siblings to one another. Despite their constant arguments and hi-jinks, they still live in the same house, the house of 4chan (imagine a pink house with a 4-leaf clover on top of it, m00t+mods in a cloud overhead because they aren't directly involved). The board-tans don't always fight; sometimes they get along when their interests cross one another, like how /co/ manages to enjoy a few animes and how /a/ sees most of /v/'s games as appealing. Everyone is pretty much in an open relationship with one another.

/b/, however, this is a twist. He is their father. He's the invasive, over-bearing, abusive dad that no one wants to deal with because of his childlike antics. No one enjoys mentioning that they are even remotely related to him, so he is still referred to as just /b/. (The board-tans do have their /b/ moments, though, so when they are venturing out of the 4chan house, it becomes evident to the other websites).

Either than that small thought, /b/ is still /b/. Being a father does not change anything about his randomness and raids.

(How I came up with /b/ being a father is relevant to his first appearance in 4chan. He is the first board at the 4chan house, hence his ideas possibly shat out many other board-tans and why he thinks he's so superior to everyone else. m00t might as well be the mother.)

A long stretch, but I could see many potentials in family dynamics.

So yeah, I added my thoughts. Hope I didn't type this out in the wrong board 'cause that would be embarrassing!

I don't think "characters are actually siblings" was ever brought up before, but looking back at everything that exists, it wouldn't be so hard to fit everything into that mold. This set-up also gives /b/ the "special" (in more ways than one) role /b/-the-board has.

Possibly problematic are the romantic relationships. However, since nobody can ever agree on how to ship the characters/boards, maybe that's for the best. Kind of keep things mostly the same, except say "they are really close siblings (and sometimes they fuck if you want jeez)." Since shipping is a major source of butthurt perhaps forgoing it all would be a good thing.

Perhaps they are not siblings in the general sense that they share a parent, but siblings in the sense that they are all the brain-children of /b/ in some sense? Explains differences in age and kind of makes everything not an incestuous slurry.

Being siblings also solves the problem of explaining why they live together or something.

So, yeah, tl;dr: good idea.

Its been a while since I made this post, but despite people wanting board tans with relationships I still like the idea of a dysfunctional family dynamic.

Things to be worked on. I have them scattered on various flash drives and around my computer, but I don't know where to put them as a reminder to complete (or discard). I'm adding in some notes as reasons for the drawings at that time. asdaf

>pic is old, at the time /r9k/ and /pol/ were added back on 4chan. The idea was that /pol/ would be considered /new/'s child, but I scraped it to pursue other options.

So the move is hectic since I'm switching to another state. I think this is like the 4th or 5th state in the past three years. I don't have that much stuff fortunately.

Putting in my notices for my jobs, waiting on the bill for my hospital stay, leaving behind my admission to the university I planned on attending. I will be working for a while before I go back to school.

My priorities are off.

I was browsing through the shimmie again and in hindsight, the pairing drama doesn't really encourage anything from me lol

I think it's safe to say that he had always been drawn crushing on /b/ to some extent. It's easier for me to portray /pol/ being shy with love than for him to actually go for it. Overall it doesn't affect his personality because I prefer non-romantic characters.

So yea, just my two cents. I don't have anything against other portrayals, it's just unlikely that I will draw him any differently no matter how many people will paint him otherwise, so I tagged the images that I've drawn on the shimmie to separate from the more popular interpretations.

I can't do the meme war thing lul
Or him being father to _ et al
Or the German accent
Or him showing affection to anyone other than his close friends and fam

I understand drawing disagreements. The associated drama is kinda useless, reactionary, and artificial tho, so I'm steering away from it.

Anyway I made a WordPress for the project I'm working on, and an Art Improvement blog to gain better drawing skills.

I was a janny for a short time and pissed off GrapeApe by spamming his dm with nonsense, saying things like I didn't respect him as a person or mod.

You'd think we'll have a conversation about power dynamics afterwards considering mods lack of communication with the community and even their own janitors.

Being friendly and going through the notion of mod acceptance is so damn tedious. None of them is worth putting on a pedestal. Fuck off with that attitude.

I'm going to sleep.
