I want to marry both Beatrice and Reinhard so much. Beatrice deserves to have two knights. Reinhard deserves two girlfriends. Why can’t I just move into the Ruins and have a cozy little polyamorous relationship game? Why?
more of this crossover cause the idea is driving me insane aaaaaaahhhh!!!!!!
The idea is that The Unknown is one single car, and no one knows how to find the exit. Many passengers have gotten stuck there over the years, and eventually just settled down and had children who were destined to live their entire lives on the train. The Beast would just be a really fucked up denizen.
Because it's so insulated, much of the attire, architecture, and technology remains unchanged from the passengers' time periods, even though time passes on the train as normal. Beatrice would still be dressed for the Regency era even though in this setting, she would've been born around the same time as Wirt.
I like the idea that Wirt's number changes erratically with his moods, and Greg's doesn't change at all until the very end. Wirt and Greg would somehow manage to get their exits at the same time :)
[ID: three sketches of various characters done in a round, cartoon-ish style resembling the animation of the tv show Over the Garden Wall. The first sketch is of Wirt and Greg from Over the Garden Wall. Greg is holding their frog, who is singing, and Beatrice, a blue bird, is flying above them. There are sparkles around Greg.
The second sketch is of Samwise and Frodo from lord of the rings, dressed to go on their adventure, but looking nervous. Frodo is holding his cloak closed, and the Samwise is holding on to his backpack.
The last sketch is of Todd and Dirk from Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective agency. Todd is looking exasperated and huffing out a breath. Dirk looks excited and is pointing a finger in the air, and there is a sparkle next to his face. Todd is wearing a pointed hat, holding a wand, and pulling on Dirk’s ear. Dirk is holding a frog.
