Quick question. I saw you talking with another person about the fanfic that was inspired by this strip and I was wondering, which chapter were Francesca and Gino killed in the fan fiction. I'm not planning to read the whole fan fiction anyway.
I don't recall. I would have to look. It didn't make much sense anyway since it occurred at like 4 in the morning, and it was never explained why Francesca would be walking down a dark street with Gino at that hour, or why she didn't run away when she had the chance, because Serena was trying to stop Snake from shooting them, so she was wrestling with him for a moment before the gun went off. Francesca could have escaped. She was well aware of the gun long before it went off, and most people would run away during a struggle when the gunman is distracted. The whole story was full of inconsistencies, like Marge having gone to high school with Serena, yet Serena is only 24 in the story, while we all know that, in the show, Marge is the same age as Homer, which is now 39.
This comic strip is based on characters and situations from a fanfic by titled "You're Not Here." I just fell in love with it and was inspired to create "Babysitter Bob." It has absolutely no connection to "Being Bob."
As for what happened to Fran and Gino, it's a long story, which is explained in "You're Not Here" on FFN, but if you want to know what happened without reading it, here's a summary:
In the story, Francesca divorced Bob and Bob went back to prison for trying to kill Bart yet again. 's character Serena (the brunette in my "Babysitter Bob" comic) helps get Bob out of prison and he goes to live with her.
In "You're Not Here" it is revealed that, a few years before, Bob's ex-wife and son were shot and killed by an unknown person. It is also revealed that Serena's big sister Esmeralda was attacked and nearly raped by some man, and her boyfriend Snake, as well as Serena, went after the guy for revenge.
They found him in an alley, and Serena only wanted to kick his ass, but Snake pulled out a gun and shot him. Then he sees Francesca holding Gino nearby and realizes they're witnesses, so he decides to kill them too. Serena tries to stop him, and while she wrestles with him for the gun, it goes off, shooting both Gino and his mother together.
Ever since then Serena has blamed herself for their deaths, but in the story, she doesn't yet know that it was Bob's family, and he doesn't know yet who killed his family, but soon they'll both make the connection.
