Storytime - Juniper of Ebon Storytime OP 20273

Hello CC, I would like to share with you some of my favorite DeviantArt comfy-cringe. Welcome to Juniper of Ebon.

What you're in for: A light-hearted self-insert fantasy about a very special orphan with superpowers who finds out she is the MOST special and travels into a magical land that needs her to save it. Despite being drawn with pen and marker in a notebook it is surprisingly competent, albeit drawn in Sonic style. Despite being Swedish the author does an okay job of writing in English most of the time. I've shown this comic to people before and been told "it's like looking into a little girl's diary." The author was 15 when she started the comic and 19 when she finished it. She is 27 now and still posts to DeviantArt.

I really like the innocent creative energy at play here, and I think the main character's design is almost kind of good. There are also some strong LOLs in the story and dialogue.

You can read ahead here: https://www.deviantart.com/katarinathecat/gallery/23771391/juniper-of-ebon

Storytime OP 20274

juniper1.jpg

>>20273
As I said, the author is Swedish, so I don't know why she picked her OC to live in London. Maybe she lived there at some point, maybe it's some sort of anglophile choice. A mystery to me!

Storytime OP 20275

Butch and Mikey are never seen again.

Storytime OP 20281

juniper5.jpg

>>20280
I thought at first that the weird 'P' was some kind of foreshadowing, because that's kind of the astrological symbol for Pluto. It never comes up again, so now I think she was just going to write 'Juniper Ebonywood' then caught herself and had to fix the 'E' to add the middle name.

Storytime OP 20282

juniper6.jpg

>>20281
I wonder when the author's birthday is, lol.

>>20276
It is, it really is, I'm excited for my favorite stupid line to show up about halfway in.

Storytime OP 20283

juniper7.jpg

>>20282
The sudden teleportation will get explained nearish to the end of the comic, because I guess she realized she forgot to show the teleportation macguffin. Lol.

Storytime OP 20284

juniper8.jpg

>>20283
A strong recurring theme is how everyone knows literally fucking everything about June. It's not creepy, it's convenient!

Storytime OP 20285

juniper9.jpg

>>20284
Katarinathecat's other main mary sue is an Echidna. She really likes Echidnas. It feels kind of random here but it's consistent with her other works.

Storytime OP 20286

juniper10.jpg

>>20285
Some common character design themes in Katarinathecat's work are giant, shapely tids and giant, fully toed Sonic feet. This probably makes someone really happy.

Storytime OP 20287

juniper11.jpg

>>20286
Wait a minute! You're that guy named Andrew I've been looking for!

I don't know why I find that line so funny.

It's just that easy.

EEVEEON EBONYWOOD, WHO CAN TURN INTO ALL THE EEVEELUTIONS

Storytime OP 20292

juniper14.jpg

>>20289
There's a lot to dissect in this plotdump but honestly I'd like to ignore it in favor of pointing out that Sonic poster. Andrew had a room prepared for June's arrival and made sure she had a Sonic poster. He knows everything, especially about her.

Storytime OP 20293

juniper15.jpg

>>20292
The relationship between Andrew and June is worthy of some serious analysis.

>>20291

In nearly every other author's hands that last panel would be a threat. Not here, though!

Storytime OP 20294

juniper16.jpg

>>20293
This page reeks to me of "my character isn't a mary sue because she has flaws."

Storytime OP 20295

juniper17.jpg

>>20294
"We thank you for what are they going to give us to eat. Amen."

Storytime OP 20296

juniper18.jpg

>>20295
I really appreciate that the artist bothers to fully color in every background, but it feels like a big waste of effort when a character shows up who is the same color. I can tell she used a slightly different green for the green girl, but it's not enough.

Anonymous 20297

>>20293
>>20294
honestly impressive how unsettling she made this relationship so quickly

Storytime OP 20298

If you're somehow not familiar with Disney's Hercules…this is just Disney's Hercules but with a handsomer Danny DeVito.

Storytime OP 20299

>>20298
Compare and contrast.

>>20297
I honestly have to wonder if there's an explanation for it. There's a lot of random 'platonic' kissing in this comic. She kissed the Griffin earlier and he flew away blushing too.

Storytime OP 20300

juniper20.jpg

>>20298
It was 7 pages ago that we learned about this power and I'd already forgotten about it.

Storytime OP 20301

juniper21.jpg

>>20300
Cutting off the panels at waist height just emphasizes how nude Charlie is.

Storytime OP 20302

juniper22.jpg

>>20301
Even though the Hercules source material uses this sequence to show the passage of time, I've got no reason to believe this took more than a day for June.

Storytime OP 20303

juniper23.jpg

>>20302
I really can't tell if the purple echidna is saying that last line as a taunt or not.

Storytime OP 20304

First panel gives me some real strong Sonichu energy.

Storytime OP 20305

Storytime OP 20306

I wish there was a Charlie and Lya subplot, it feels like Katarinathecat likes them and could have done more with them.

I've read this comic front to back multiple times and I still can't tell if June can't swim. It just looks like she's not even trying.

Storytime OP 20312

juniper32.jpg

>>20311
The green-faced minion is probably a referential design but I don't know what it is.

Storytime OP 20313

>>20312
I guess Andrew and Griffin also can't swim?

Storytime OP 20314

I'm not going to post youtube references for every copied Disney scene, I know you know this is Aladdin.

Storytime OP 20315

June is never told whether she can or can't touch the treasure!

Storytime OP 20316

juniper36.jpg

>>20315
Even the carpet seems weirdly physical with June.

Storytime OP 20317

juniper37.jpg

>>20316
It never occurs to her that this is a trap. But she's seen the movie, so she knows it's not, I guess.

Storytime OP 20318

juniper38.jpg

>>20317
There's no dumbass monkey here to touch the treasure for her, and June would NEVER, so a random coin just has to fall out of the fucking ceiling to initiate the lava escape.

Somehow her being Swedish just ties it altogether.

the more the story goes on, she more potential sexual predators she collects. between the horrible rapey (old?) surrogate dad echidna that she lowkey seems to want to bone, the griffin who clearly desires cross-species relations, and the touchy carpet, it's just an increasingly bizarre collection of misfit molesters

Carpert the Carpet, Genai the Genie. Oh, and Griffin the Griffin.

Storytime OP 20334

>>20333
I don't know if I'm annoyed or relieved that there's no "wish for more wishes" discourse in this scene.

Storytime OP 20335

juniper51.jpg

>>20334
If I were a genie I think I'd just not mention wishes in hopes that I'll never have to grant one. You'd think that would work.

Storytime OP 20336

I like how panel 1 isn't written as a hypothetical. I know it's just an ESL error but it would be funny as an intentional joke.

The marker she uses for Genai's accessories has changed! It doesn't mean anything.

It feels like maybe this page and the last were a slight mistake. It feels like she wrote the same transitional scene twice.

Storytime OP 20352

I'm not going to dig for a video reference but this is another scene from Hercules. You've probably seen it already.

Storytime OP 20354

juniper67.jpg

>>20353
This is the first page in which June's species is actually mentioned. It was never a secret, Katarinathecat just forgot to say it anywhere.

June is a Martian. Like Marvin the Martian. The design is probably modeled after that queen Martian from the Duck Dodgers cartoon that was airing around this time.

I want to say that the way this pink dog is drawn is a copy of some actual cartoon's style, but I can't identify it. I feel like if Katarinathecat wanted to just draw a generic dog she'd give it a Sonic face or something. But I can't prove it.

Oh shit, there's a Koopa here. I know that at least one person in Katarinathecat's friend circle had a Koopa-sona but I don't know if that's a cameo. I just like how jarring it is for a Koopa to show up next to the Sonic furries.

Hoola. You might be excited but we aren't getting a full Lilo and Stitch arc and I'm a little mad that we don't.

Look at that human, with her small human feet. How wretched!

I guess she needed Haily to weaken it first or something who knows

I have a theory that artists like this will do random intro pages just as an excuse to draw the whole cast, because it's so easy to forget some of your characters when you draw a crowd. It's like a cheat sheet for later pages.

There's like ONE human on this island and everyone else is an echidna. Of course.

this whole strip could've easily been leila (lilo) relating to her about being an orphan, instead she must assert how bangable she is to every vaguely male character in town

Storytime OP 20444

For your convenience, here's Na Mele No Lilo. I'd like to point out that this is an actual traditional song that existed before the movie (which makes it accurate that Lilo's hula class was performing it). It's not about Lilo, it's a tribute song for King Kalakaua: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kal%C4%81kaua

Basically this song has zero relevance to Juniper and unless Hoola has a similar history to actual Hawaii it shouldn't exist in Ebon. I GUESS maybe the United States of Ebon might have forcibly annexed Hoola after putting its queen (Kalakaua's sister Lili'uokalani) under house arrest. I GUESS I can have that headcanon.

Sorry guys I

I'm from Hawaii

she wrote 'hawaii' in the song she sang and did not replace it with 'hoola', actually. guess juniper believes anywhere that looks like hawaii is hawaii, or close enough, anyways

>>20447
it's closer than i thought it'd be but i'm a little disappointed it's essentially another eagle

>>20454
my question is in a tug of war scenario, do they have joint ownership of the lamp? ownership is a real, literal, touch and go issue for this kind of thing. actually surprised common lore hasn't ironed it out more

YOU WOULD THINK, amongst the years of "wish for more wishes" discourse, we'd get some solid rules on lamp handling. I really don't know either!

Okay so she made a musical ring and recorded HERSELF singing on it. Okay, that sounds like something a kid would want. But she made it herself? As a school project? I mean the real kicker here is that she thinks this is a good gift for someone she met yesterday.

Anonymous 20464

that's bad, but what's worse is the fact that he intended on proposing to her with no ring and just left the responsibility to his niece-daughter, that she just happened to have on hand, that very much says "this is from my 13 yo niece-daughter". he was too concerned with his tux to worry about a ring. a cheap and inconsiderate manchild. and the perpetual bedroom eyes for his niece will never not be creepy

Storytime OP 20465

Bet you didn't expect these two to come back. I have to wonder if they represent anyone in Katarinathecat's real life.

Also, that's the crystal that sent her to Ebon, that we didn't see when she was sent to Ebon.

I'm suddenly hyper-aware of Genai's gloveless Sonic hands. And I realized that none of these echidnas have had Knuckles spike gloves. It's fine, it's just kind of weird to think about.

I often forget that June isn't intended to be a princess, because so much of her story feels like a princess fantasy. She's just a priestess, the royalty of Ebon are some other random people.

For your final listening pleasure, the opening song from Kingdom Hearts II.

The thought of someone singing this a capella is hilarious, I've never heard a version of this song that wasn't heavily edited in a way that makes it unsingable. There are parts of the song that are played backwards.

Storytime OP 20482

juniper168.jpg

>>20479
And that's it! We end abruptly on a song. Quite frankly I'm just glad there's a definitive end, because many amateur comics just meander off into nothing. For real, having an end is a real point of quality for a webcomic. I respect it. It's still weird.

>>20478
I unironically like the names 'Juniper' and 'Pamela' but boy do they not need to be together.
