"...now put the page with the other white pages and meet my bazillion of friends."

We Myst fans have all a different Stranger. I wanted to draw them all in the same place.

R-H-MacLanahan made something very similar a few days ago ([link]), but I finished mine anyway.

From left to right :

:iconmystery-voice:'s stranger, maybe named Xenia. I know nothing about her, but Mystery likes to take lots of pictures, so she's got a camera.

:iconfaeliscity:'s stranger. Loves to steal Cyan boots and likes tomatoes to no end.

:icontariamofthepez:'s Cecilia, from her fanfic Devokan tsahno. She's been around for so long that she's a part of Atrus' family now.

:iconr-h-maclanahan:'s Rio, who carries the red book along with him, pretending his name is Wilson.

:iconhalley42:'s robot, from her fanfic Between the lines. He tries to convince Saavedro he lives in a videogame and gets hammered many times for that.

My stranger is in the middle. Let's call her Johannes. She carries a bamboo stick along with her and likes to threaten Myst vilains with it.

:iconiamcheeseburger:'s Sarah, and Myra (the animal-like guy). Cutest duo in the Myst universe for sure. I'm not really sure if they are this young.

:iconartoveli:'s Cyan, most popular stranger ever!

:iconlightnings-shadow:'s Isabelle, the weird girl who is obsessed with Cyan's hair, doesn't know what the rain is and eats raw fish eyes.

:iconshoomlah:'s Shoomlah. She may be the only person in the multiverse who can get along with Sirrus.

Please visit these people's galleries! They're worth it!

Atrus is trying to assemble a complete book out of pages brought by strangers. That, or Sirrus and Achenar stole a lot more than one page.

I like your theory :)

Oh wow, I forgot you did Myst art too. Or at least, didn't remember the connection between this and the Who art I first saw over on Tumblr.

A shame the time that has past means some of the stories implied here have been unwritten, in a way. No sign of halley42's Myst stories, it seems. A real tragedy, it's interesting to see abnormal approaches to the Stranger's identity.

I think halley42's stories had already vanished by the time I made this drawing, if I remember correctly. Her reasoning for a floating robot as the "stranger" was that you could never see your own feet in Exile :D

*dies* oh my. That would get tiresome for the ol boy wouldn't it? This is adorable.


On the other hand, if that really was D'ni, now he has enough toilet paper. WE WORRIED ABOUT THESE THINGS! Linking books to food ages are all very well but, um... yeah!

...and NOW I remember why your username looks familiar. *smacks forehead*

... I... actually never thought about the toilet paper problem.
I need brain bleach now.

The Strangers in this picture suck

Dare to explain why a bit more?

Because I don't like their designs.

*Care, not dare

The people who created all these Strangers (except the one in the middle, they're not mine, as you can know if you read the comment) are kind persons. I wanted to pay tribute to them.
If that's a problem for you, then don't comment, or be constructive in your comment.

Ok, you have a problem with the original designs themselves, not with my drawing, am I right? So why are you commenting on my drawing? Also it's rude to say someone else's design "sucks" just because you don't like it.

Be constructive, or don't comment at all. I don't need to know that you believe my friends' Strangers "suck".

Have a good day anyway.

The composition on this picture if perfect. Do you want to hear about my Stranger? He is simply known as Leigh and he dresses in prim clothes which includes a cravat and a bowler hat. A true gentleman indeed. If you have time, you should design this Stranger for me according to my description.

Adding to my previous post, he usually wears boots and he also has a journal with green covers on his person at all times. He also has brown hair.

BRILLIANT piece and GREAT idea!!!!
:iconwowplz:
Thank you for including my Stranger. ^.^ These people/creatures make a good team of Atrus' friends/helpers! Why won't he make T-shirts for them with "I am friend of Atrus" sign? :)

Lol thanks, he's got an entire team of Strangers now. If a random vilain appears, the Stranger Team will be here to kick his ass :XD:

I know nothing about your Stranger, can you tell me more please? ^^;

Sure!
She's mostly like me. Loves drawing, writes journal. The one thing which differs her from most other Strangers: she LOVES to help and never complains. Friendship is friendship! And she fears the brothers.
