I don't know about anyone else, but I saw virtually no differences in Bowser's personality from Super Mario RPG through Bowser's Inside Story. In every one of those games, aside from maybe a select few dumb moments (particularly in Thousand-Year Door and Super Paper Mario, but nothing he did in the latter game was anywhere near as stupid as mistaking a poster for the real thing, like in the former), he's always had the same arrogant tough-guy attitude.
As for the diary thing not working with modern Bowser... I wouldn't say that for sure. That's something that even Sticker Star, of all things, stayed consistent with. By that, I mean one of the True or False questions in the "Snifit or Whiffit" quiz show. It said: "This doesn't leave the room, but King Bowser actually loathes Princess Peach." The correct answer to that, of course, was false.

Part 12 is now up and running. I've added a link to it in the first post of this thread.
Here's another small preview of it.
Koopatrol: …! Dude, isn’t that Mario?
Terrapin: Yeah, that’s him alright! Let’s get ‘im!
Koopatrol: I dunno, man. He’ll mop the floor with us for sure! I say we should inform the others and gang up on him!
Terrapin: Don’t be such a scaredy-cat! We can take him! Besides, if we’re the ones who take him down, we’ll get all the credit! We’ll be heroes around here, even to the higher-ups! Kamek, Kammy Koopa, and even King Bowser himself!
Koopatrol: *Nods* Yeah, I guess you’ve got a point. Let’s do it!
I'm sure anyone who's played Thousand-Year Door could easily tell what this is parodying.

True, but like I said earlier on in this thread, this story combines plot elements from the first three Paper Mario games, so that just happened to be one of many homages I've paid to it.
While I'm at it... Since I got an early start on the thirteenth chapter, I might as well go ahead and post this preview, too. This one's for you, mrbowser.
Kammy: At this point, I’m really beginning to think that Princess Daisy and that butterfly were right [about Dimentia and Dimention]. I don’t know what it is about those two, but there is definitely something fishy about them.
Kamek: I have to agree. I, too, can’t seem to shake the feeling that the two of them are up to something. It would definitely be wise for us to keep our eyes on them.
Bowser: Haven’t we already been through this? Remember, this is Lord Bowser we’re talking about, here! You know, evil king extraordinaire! Grade-A, 100% prime-cut final boss! I’m smart enough to know when someone’s trying to play me. *Looks toward Kamek* You remember Antasma, right?
Kamek: Yes, of course. How could I forget?
Bowser: Then if that’s the case, I’m sure you must remember how things turned out when he thought he was using me! I played him like a bat fiddle and turned the tables on him! If I come to find out that Tia and Tion are trying to pull an Antasma on me, then I’ll do the same to them, plain and simple!
Kamek: Ka ha ha ha! Ah, yes, I remember! That was simply genius!
Bowser: You got that right, buddy! I’m the biggest, baddest brute around, and don’t you forget it!

Thanks. Like I said, I try to keep everyone as in-character as possible, regardless of who they are.
In any case, the thirteenth chapter is up. As always, you can find the link in the first post of this thread.
Here's a(nother) small preview, this time involving Cranky.
Cranky: That woman over there that Donkey’s talking to… *Points to Pauline* …I still can’t shake the feeling that I’ve seen her somewhere before, but I just can’t put my finger on it!
Diddy: I thought you said you knew everything about this story?
Cranky: I do, but this is the one thing that even has me stumped! Sure, I could easily look at SolarBlaze’s outline for future events, but that would take out what little fun there is of this crummy story!
Diddy: …If you say so.
Oh, and The InterNed appears in this chapter, too, by the way.

Yeah, it's usually hard to keep a straight face while coming up with Cranky's lines. Speaking of which, I based some of the things he said off one of mrbowser/Mcmadness's posts on the last page. Can you guess which sentences I'm talking about?
Last Edit: Feb 18, 2015 14:11:14 GMT -5 by SolarBlaze
Finished the latest chapter. Francis part was the best part.
Cranky's dialogue looks like the most fun to write, actually. Even you know mrbowser was Mcmadness, huh? Yep, but I have no idea which sentences are based off of his posts. Maybe the part about clowns and fan characters? I have not read his posts in here in a long time.
Post by SolarBlaze on Feb 18, 2015 17:18:29 GMT -5
Yeah, he's been active over at the MarioWiki forum since July of last year, under that name. I wasn't a hundred percent certain it was him at first until he referenced our argument in the "Your stance on Bowser?" thread. As for the post I was talking about, you guessed it. Here's a comparison.
Also the very concept of the 2 clown characters is frankly very lazy. Just lamer versions of Dimentio who himself wasn't even all that great to begin with.
[Dimentia and Dimention] have some of the laziest character design I've ever witnessed! They're nothin' but cheap rip-offs of that "Dimentio" guy, and even he wasn't that great to begin with!

I'm actually registered at quite a few others, mainly some Sonic-based forums and a Donkey Kong message board, but I don't post as often as I used to.
Also, while we're on the subject of Dimentia and Dimention, I've finally come up with an explanation regarding their exact connection to Dimentio, besides them simply being members of the same clan. If you'd like to know what it is (since, at the rate I'm going, it may take a while to get to the end of the story), I could put it in a spoiler tag. At the same time, however, I'll still be keeping quiet about who the final boss is.
The two of them actually are Dimentio. They're the result of him being split apart into two halves; one good, one evil. As to how it happened... I'm leaning towards something along the lines of that being some sort of side effect from the Purity Heart and/or Chaos Heart.
Yes, I know. That's not the best there is, but at least it's more original than simply saying that they're relatives of his (which was what I intended originally).

Dimentia and Dimention being two halves of the same being also means that they share the same life force, where one of them is unable to physically exist without the other. If one happens to die, then the other will follow, kind of like Kami and Piccolo in the Dragon Ball series.
