Bonnie N. Collide, Nine to Five


Time for the third team! Say hello to The SNEERING SIRENS!

The Sneering Sirens are all about being clever and tricksy. They don't appreciate flash and glamour and superficial tactics to outwit their opponents. They're on the edge, riding the line, and they KNOW you'll never see them coming! Capt. Amy Hazeballs is the beloved wife of the Hammerin' Harpies's Hattie Hellfire, and Tyrion Sinister is head of the coaches team. The rest are all readers!

Congrats to all the teammates! (i.e. those lovely skaters who wrote in to tell me their derby stories)

  • Gorshach
  • Scald Eagle
  • I.M. Pain
  • Missyle Elliott
  • Doris Day of Reckoning

(Confession: I.M. Pain and Doris are both from my swell home league of the Charm City Roller Girls, and it was purely by accident they wound up on the same team, haha!) Go Sirens! One more team for tomorrow!

Oh, and just a reminder - these represent your little Bonnie comic cartoon self versions - don't worry (and hopefully don't be offended!) if they don't exxxaaaactly look like the REAL you. ;)

(For those of you who might be confused, I put a call out for any derby skaters out there to be a part of the comic - all it took was submitting their name/attitude/photo. I took all the submissions and found them a spot on one of Bonnie's league's home teams. These are the results! :) )

And I only just realized, when looking up the phrase "Klaatu, Barada, Nikto" that it's BARADA, and not VARADA, which is what I always thought when I watched Army of Darkness. Soooo naming her Veronica after Klatu doesn't make much sense. OH WELL! Also, I have no idea if either of these names or any like it are taken by real derby peeps, but you can check out the full derby name database here! In case anyone is curious, I'm down there at the bottom under "Whipstick". :) I'd love to hear if any of you all out there have Game of Thrones or Bruce Campbell inspired ones.
