Viridian is Viridian.

... Even I can't beat that.

But Terry, IS Viridian a girl? Because, according to this complete legal internet picture document, you said, "SHE is optimistic" and stuff.

So, what he said is true: VIRIDIAN IS VIRIDIAN.

Wait... if Viridian = Viridian...

...nah, not possible.

I still believe he's male, though. He and Victoria seem to be a pairing that will work.

:viridian::victoria:

NO! It's not that! It's :victoria: + :vitellary:

No.

 :vitellary: fights over  :violet: with  :verdigris: and  :vermillion:

 :viridian: and  :victoria: don't realize they're beginning to form a relationship.

I myself assumed Viridian was male, but then I read somewhere that Viridian's gender was deliberately left unspecified. For that reason, I was very careful to avoid revealing Viridian's gender in my user levels. That's why the descriptions say refer to Viridian as "you." It was awkward, but it was better than repeatedly saying Viridian. In fact, that's the whole joke behind the terminal in Quantum Tunnel that asks for Viridian's gender. Viridian responds with a joke, and the terminal is annoyed, but in the end it doesn't come out. The idea was to skirt dangerously close to revealing it, then veer away at the last second.

:viridian:Come on, Victoria. Let's go back to the ship. :victoria: Okay.

Like Terry said, Viridian is Viridian.

And Dimension VVVVVV is our world in the future.

I doubt that.

VVVVVV is the fourteenth dimension. Our dimension is the seventh.

YES. Victoria is my favorite character, and I won't have you pairing her with anyone except for Vitellary.

They were meant to be.

It's interesting that people don't pick up on this more, actually - the idea is that the complimentary colours are a little "closer" to each other, which is very obvious in the case of :verdigris: and :violet:, a little less obvious in the case of  :viridian: and :vermillion:, but perhaps it's entirely too subtle in the case of :vitellary: and :victoria:. :vitellary: and :victoria: actually have a great deal of mutual respect and admiration for each other.

Complimentary colors? You mean that colors that look good together? If that was the case, then wouldn't it be :vermillion: and :victoria:?

In Kindergarten, they teach the RYB color model because it corresponds well with the colors people use colloquially in our culture. But they aren't true primaries because they can't produce certain shades--for instance, cyan and magenta. The RYB color system produces a more limited color space.

VVVVVV uses this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RGB_color_model

I'm no expert on color theory, but I am of the understanding that the RGB color model more closely approximates the way the human eye works. It's not perfect, though, because there's a psychological and cultural component to it. For instance, most everything between cyan and blue is generally called "blue", and there's special words for light red (pink) and dark orange (brown).

 :viridian::victoria: makes more sense.  :vitellary: is too involved in being the smart one (and thus probably married science) and  :vermillion: loves the Super Gravitron.

Also,  :verdigris: and  :violet: are in a relationship. They also suffer amusing injuries.

(Like I did with a door a few minutes ago.)

Do you even play VVVVVV? :victoria: is obviously obsessed with :vitellary: because of the way she constantly worries about him. And :verdigris: and :violet: are not IN a relationship. Verdigris just likes her. And :viridian: loves trinkets. And :vermillion: loves... pudding?

:viridian: and :victoria: wouldn't work because :victoria: doesn't like adventuring.
