LC backstory - sketches by ChibiEdo LC backstory - sketches by ChibiEdo
Lost Chums background story - sketches
Tumblr: [link]

Ok seriously what am I even doing now. While wondering with Ama over the reason why dave and dirk even live in different towns in LC a lot of ideas happened. And I mean a lot. And it mainly ended up with Dave and Dirk having parents (Andy and Tess Strider).XDD (who already happen to have more background story than they should have haha.. Andy is a cop and Tess a lawyer : D ). Ama worked more on them and I just went on a jake-dirk as kids spree.

Jake met the others at the age of 10. Moving over from the jungle so he is a pretty weird kid who runs around with loaded real guns because you could be attacked at any time! His grandmother died so he lives with jane and her dad or/and grandpa whoever i decide on.

The jake and dirk in bed scene has the following story behind it:
Jake always sleeps with his guns under his pillow to be able to defend himself when he gets attacked at night. Because he HAD to do that sometimes while he was living in the jungle since it was a pretty dangerous place and you were never really safe. But grandpa Crocker or Dad thought that would be to dangerous so he took them away.
Causing Jake to have a lot of trouble sleeping. And becoming really tired and exhausted because he can't sleep.

And then a day when he is at dirks:
Jake and Dirk both sitting on Dirk's bed.
Jake: *yawns and can hardly keep his eyes open*
Dirk: Do you trust me?
Jake: huh? Yes, I do! Why?
Dirk: Then just sleep. I'll stay awake and protect you.
Jake: Aw really? Thank you so much, mate! I'll try.
*Jake closes eyes->immediately falls asleep*
Andy checks on them.
Andy: I think it's time for Jake to go home.
Dirk: Shh, he's sleeping.
Andy: I'm not surprised. He looked tired as hell. Is everything ok?
Dirk: Yeah, right now it is.
Andy: Ok vague answer but nevermind. I'll call the Crockers' and tell them Jake is spending the night.
Dirk: Thanks. *yawn*
Andy: Dirk, you should get some shuteye, too. Kids are supposed to sleep at night. That also goes for little kid Striders.
Dirk: No, I can't. I promised to stay awake to protect Jake from anything.
Andy: You know nothing ever happens at night here. We live in the city not in the jungle. What would you say if I check on you two from time to time so you can have some rest, too.
Dirk: No. He said he trusted me. He'll be sad if I break my promise.
Andy: Fine for tonight but don't let this become a habit.
Dirk: Sure thing.

Ok I seriously should shut up now.. I could write a ton more haha. Hope you like somewhat! Comments always make me happy : D

Oh my gosh, that is just... The cutest thing ever. I love your backstories. And haha, why do I get the feeling Tess's design is a shout out to Terezi, or maybe her ancestor in post scratch Alternia?

aww thank you! Terezi it is. (I don't know why people would think of latula because... i mean... tess is a lawyer not a rad gamegrl XDD and I draw her hair like terezi's..XDD ). Andy is some kind of alphadave-bro mix thing with his own personality though..XDD he actually looks like dave when he doesn't have his hair spiked up. same eye and hair colour. (I draw dirk with lighter hair than dave)

When I said her ancestor, I meant Neophyte Redglare, who is much more similar to Terezi than Latula herself is. ^_^ And I notice in the sketch you did of him with his hair down. Haha, it's a good thing he has his own personality; Dave and Dirk are assholes as it is when not dealing with certain people; don't need to have anymore influence on that than necessary. But, I suppose their slightly dickish actions are what make them -them-, so...

Very true... Good God, I don't even want to know what would happen if Bro Strider, Dave Bro, Dave, and Dirk all met up and were around someone as neurotic as Karkat.

ChibiEdo Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012
oh god yes.XDDD
Throughout this story Dave and Dirk meet Karkat but only pretty rarely xD Karkat learns from Dave that all humans have red blood - finally. After being pranked by john who karkat thought was a strange blue eyed red blooded mutant and roxy who john got to play along being a mutant highblood. xD
With dirk there is only one meet-up (+ jake) before dirk changes drastically.

Latula? what?XDDD don't know where you got that idea when she clearly looks much more like some kind of human Terezi..XD (At least I hope so because that's what I tried to do...XD).

Latula is the rad gamer girl. So naturally, she would be associated with Dave and Dirk.

ChibiEdo Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2012
haha yeah true, that would be a reason but since I like DavexTerezi and just like Terezi much more than Latula... Terezi it is.xD

wow bro you got a story here!!! andy remind me of bro alot and tess reminds me of Terezi a bit!! i like to see more.... like a strider family picture

:iconchibiedo:
ChibiEdo Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2012
thank you! andy is kinda based on alpha-dave lookwise just hair styled like dirk xD He has red eyes and his hair colour is like I draw dave's (which is hardly visible when I just use such few colours to colour a pic though). But I'd thought I'll give him so bro-like clothes when he strifes. And Tess is based on Terezi you saw right.XD She has red eyes and is blind later on because of reasons.
I'd like to draw a family picture, maybe I'll do that sometime xD
