  • Dawnzilla in Toyko

    Thinking about Dawn going to Tokyo and her stomping around all big sized. How do you think she'll get there? Just walk...? Or how tall is she? I wonder if in that suit case there were high heels which Dawn liked, that'd be funny. Maybe the Scoobies could just jump on her shoulders and she could run, it couldnt take that long. So everyone assumed Kenny being a thricewise turned her into a Giant because they had sex. Since Dawn slept with the roommate, did Kenny hex her?

    Yeah, just a random thread. I like the giant Dawn story line and the humor that goes along with it, aside from her being a skank.
    Just one rule... I don't want to date a twin... I've been traded before.

    It's still a helluva walk and swim to Japan from Scotland, even if you're 50 feet tall. It'd still have to be like walking across a few states.

    Best advice to Dawn for her trip to Japan is to not wear skirts.

    I'm thinking the idea is that, yes, Kenny put the whammy on Dawn as payback for living up to Buffy's name calling from "Him".

      Or Kenny was actually a mis-direct and his roomate was the Thricewise. I could say either working.

      I'm not quite sure how they are going to do the Giant Dawn in Japan thing. I guess everyone thinks of Godzilla straight away but I want them to pull it off, it'd be a little silly if she was stomping around the city in what we have to remember is supposed to a normal world. Maybe she'll be teleported to Japan later to help fight the vamps or something, I mean something that size can do a lot of damage.

        I'm sorry but can I award you guys with some kind of golden statue for making me laugh out loud? Speak about imagery!

        But that aside, are we ruling out that Dawn won't be smaller-ized in #11? Then again, I think it was KingofCretins who reported in another thread that they were going to carry her arc 'til mid-season, which definitely makes me scratch my head about "Wolves at the Gate" if it is true.
        If she is Dawnzilla in this arc, what advantage could she provide to the gang? I mean, ideally she'd be great to stomp her foot on the vampires with "unusual, yet strangely familiar, powers" but, hey, she did that in 8.03. And we all know that the Scoobies don't like to re-use their fighting skills, spells, and weapons more than once. (Understandably though.)

          If it was Kenny that made her big, then Dawn has a serious guilt complex if she thinks he's still an ok guy after he's done that. Whatever she did to him, no one deserves being Morgan Spurlocked like that.

          I would love love love to have Dawn in Tokyo on the rampage. Especially if Matthew Broderick gets a walk on and Andrew gets really angry about it. Or perhaps Andrew could point out that she's "still more like the real thing than Mathew Broderick's lameo lizard". I just want Andrew there so badly!

            I'd rather have Faith and/or Giles. Perhaps resolve the friction from "No Future for You." Although I wouldn't be surprised if Andrew does appear in this "episode" since Drew Goddard is writing it. That guy knows how to write for Andrew.

              But, Faith or Giles wouldn't make good Godzilla references! Which is all I want from life

              Seriously though, if they're going to do a Dawnzilla gag, they need to make it funny. But I suppose a comment from a passer by would work.

                Oh, for sure, there has to be a Godzilla reference without a doubt. And I think Xander would be great to deliver some line about it. He may be Nick Fury Jr. now but he's still a geek at heart.

                  I'm imagining a panel or two, no text, just Dawn walking down the street. Low "camera" and a steep view angle would make her look even bigger. Any text would ruin the majesty of it.

                  Sort of off-topic but not quite: Has anyone else wondered why Dawn's bones didn't all break from her increase in size? She grew (and became heavier) in 3 dimensions, but the strength of a bone is measured by its cross-section.
                  Buffy: It sounds like it's difficult for you. Maybe your sister makes it hard for you to establish your own identity. You said she's controlling, she doesn't let you make your own decisions -
                  Dawn: Yeah, and she borrows my clothes without asking.

                      It was the first thing I thought about. Then Joss made us conclude that her strenth had not increased proportionally. She in no way would have the strength (both muscles and bones) to carry her weight. So, at the very least some of the weight needs to have been (magically) compensated.

                        Her bones haven't changed relative to her muscaluture and body weight -- what's the problem?

                        I find it far more baffling how she can have adequate food and water, and protection from the elements. The clothes thing really made me happy, because at least it means that they've done something to keep her safe during winter. I would love to see the mystics zap her a double cheeseburger, though, just so we know she's getting protein. Or some peanut butter.

                          In this article, they cite Scott Allie saying that we should expect "giant Dawn to stomp around Tokyo like Godzilla!"

                          Ahahah! Sweet!

                            Say Dawn's height (or any other dimension) was x. The strength of her bones is a(x^2) - the cross-sectional area. Her weight is b(x^3). So the proportion of weight to bone strength for Normal Dawn (bx^3/ax^3).

                            Now we quadruple her height. The strength of her bones is now a(4x)^2 or 16ax^2, and her weight is b(4x)^3 or 64bx^3. The proportion of weight to bone strength here is (4bx^3/ax^2). Her weight has quadrupled in relation to her bone strength - it would require strong bones to withstand that. And that's a conservative estimate (try multiplying her height by 5, 10, 20 or whatever you think the ratio is, based on the drawings).

                              Well, Michelle is 5'7", that's 67". To look at her, let's say she's 45 feet tall now, and that's 540 inches. So, her current height would be 8.05x.

                              Where are these formulas coming from?

                                Based on the assertion that bone strength is determined by the area of its cross-section (medscape dot com/viewarticle/548584_16), I made up a variable "a" so that actual bone strength, in some sort of units, is equal to the area (x^2 - we'll include pi somewhere in the variable "a") times a. Also, weight is based in three dimensions, so I created another variable "b" that will determine the weight, in some other units, of a person based on height x (weight will be something times x^3, because of the three dimensions - length, width, height). In the end it doesn't really matter what A and B are, because they're in the same place in both proportions. I was trying to be lazy and still make the point that as a person's size is increased without the natural growth process, their weight increases faster than their bone strength.
