Anonymous asked: oh, so was it gene therapy, then? like how the genome soldiers were in relation to big boss?
Hi, Captain Caramel Milkshake here, the other mod.
Well the way I see it is that yes it could very well be gene therapy in a sense. I’m not one hundred percent sure, but it does make the most sense.
But Gene was such a one off and kind of out of nowhere introduction to the series with no real hint that he existed (as far as I know).
But with gene therapy being a major thing in Metal Gear Solid and Gene Therapy was conceptualized in 1972, two years after the events of Portable Ops.
So it is entirely possible that Gene was created to be sort of The Boss’ Genome Soldier.
Anonymous asked: wasn't Gene her clone? i never played poops
Iirc he quotes her but that’s all.
Edit: I looked it up.
Gene later underwent experimentation for the Successor Project, the goal being to create the “ultimate battlefield commander” modeled after The Boss, and was given superhuman abilities as a result. During this time, Gene developed CQC Enhancer, an enhanced and destructive form of CQC.
Short answer: Yeah kind of.
Anonymous asked: i kinda like that headcanon, it's grown on me, if only because it means that the memetic successor (solid snake) raises the genetic successor (sunny)
I feel you.
In terms of babies and grandbabies of The Boss I’m somewhat partial to the (really dumb) headcanon of Paz being a clone of The Boss. Milkshake and I talked about it once and wondered why The Boss hadn’t been cloned, or at least had her magical MGS DNA saved until the point she could potentially be cloned and we decided that she was. So it must be Paz who’s the clone.
We’ve written a great deal of terrible Peace Walker fan works and never told anyone. By that I mean Strangelove. We’ve written a lot about Strangelove.
