"Shifter" is suddenly an odd word for me.

Postby Lunaticked on Sat Oct 15, 2011 5:15 pm

I've been reading this comic since nearly the start, and the word Shifter had its meaning intricately tied into what it means in this comic.

Now I work in a new industry and a 'shifter' is the guy who is in charge of the crew I work on. My brain kind of glitches out every time I hear the word now.

Damn you, SM. Damn you.

Ooh! I at least knew that one!

I guess while we are on it, here in all it's glory is the Wikipedia page for Shifter:

Yeah, there's actually a few comics called Shifter or Shifters out there.

Fuck, I've lost track of the comics named 'shifters' that have popped up on DA. A lot of them are like a cover, or a concept. Like these:
http://kawaii71.deviantart.com/art/Shif ... -219311579
http://thephantomdragon.deviantart.com/ ... -106550361
http://xsanjanax.deviantart.com/art/Shi ... -118248453
http://rikky-bubbles.deviantart.com/art ... -150623089
http://mirrix.deviantart.com/gallery/31548452
http://sketch-reload.deviantart.com/art ... s-35797736

And the list goes on. Just search "Shifters" on deviantart and you'll get the picture.

To be honest, Shifters is a common word, which is why I keep it paired with something (the beast within originally, and now redux). I actually get more annoyed when people usurp the word "Kinsmir" since that IS my word. I made that specifically for Shifters.
