Thinking Inside the Box by TehPickle Thinking Inside the Box by TehPickle
First off, I did not write that conversation. That is canon. ..Aside from the last part. ^^'

So, it's off my usual fandoms, but I had to comic this idea from Metal Gear Solid 3. Anyone who knows Solid Snake(or.. Has played SSB:B) knows that when in doubt, hide in a cardboard box. ...Either that, or start smoking. Not both at the same time, though. That'd be bad.

In MGS3, you play as Solid Snake's 'father'(or mother, or both. What do you call the guy you were cloned from?), and there's this one conversation he has if you climb into a box, then call up one of his backup guys. ..So I guess box-hiding is a genetic trait?

So, considering I laughed until I cried when I first saw this, I figured it'd be fun to draw. And it was. With a lot of diligence and a little cheating, I got this done in under 24 hours. Yay, me!

Snake, Box, and conversation belong to the guys from the MGS series. Not mine.

As usual, cookies for comments. ^^

No need, my friend. Just find your local neighborhood box, crawl in, and let the eternal nirvana begin!

If Big Boss hides in a box,
and Solid Snake hides in a box,
and Solid Snake is a clone of Big Boss,
and Raiden hides in a box,
but Raiden was raised by Solidus Snake,
who is ANOTHER clone of Big Boss,
that means it MUST be a family thing!

My thinking precisely. It's right there in the genes.. And they all share the same genes. ..Aside from Raiden, who was, as you mentioned, raised by Solidus, and trained after the methods of Solid.

And yay, comments and faves! -gives cookies-

I recently read at [link] that apparently Liquid is also a fan of the box.

I also later read that Solid was supposed to have almost exact DNA of Big Boss, however, Solid has all the good genes and Liquid has all the bad genes (according to the third-to-last cutscene in MGS straight from Liquid's mouth), and Solidus has a mixture of both (MGS2, speaking to Ames). Wouldn't you think the one with minimal DNA mutation would be the most similar?

I remember that video from youtube and it was hilarious. I love the way that you have his eyes change giving him great expression even though that he's in a box. This box thing must be genetic. I have to remember to try it some time.

I figured playing with the eyes would be the only way to see Snake at all, unless I got a shot of him from inside the box, which would have been hard as heck.

And yes, I recommend climbing in a box. I recommend it highly.

Damn. So that's the secret to inner peace I've been looking for for so long!! *climbs in a box* Omm.... Omm.... I am one with the box... the box is me, and I, too, am part of the box... all of creation is linked to me, and my box... Omm...

...Do you also feel particularly kickass? Or do you alternatively feel like dressing in camo gear and wrestling the nearest guard into submission at knifepoint?

...Remind me not to give you a knife. o.o

Eh, camo's not my look. I like warm colors and cleaner styles. -nodnod-

Dead certain. There are youtube videos of all of the games in full length, so I have proof!
[link] It's about 25 minutes in, but it's worth checking out.

I love how MGS parodies itself from time to time. ^^

Oh, and: -gives cookies and luff for the fave-
