it's something taken from canon and expanded upon in fanon. There were a couple of mentions of cherry coke in the show and people seized on that. Just like Michael was shown with art skills twice and that morphed into a career in art. :lol:

Oh, I'm so guilty of this. :lol: Really, though, I wish they'd gone further with that in the show.

@ nibbles2 -- thanks for the info....

i think it's soo weird that the littlest bits of information the show used can be turned into something that seems
to be incorporated in almost every fanfiction....it just goes to show how fanfiction can keep a show alive and ongoing even years after the shows completion.

:? :? :? just something i was wondering if someone knows and is willing to answer :? :? :?


Well, I can tell you that Max, at the very least, ordered Cherry Coke at the Crash more than once - as to everyone else, I'm not sure. It might just have been one of those small canon details that fandom snatched up and held onto for dear life, lol.

Twice?

I remember the dome but what was the other time? Was it the napkin holder? Does that count as art?

I guess it should since it redefined the term napkin holder and all. lol

I forgot about the napkin holder, that showed his creative side too. I was talking about the dome painting and in Summer of '47 he was shown drawing a cartoon.

Well, Liz actually refered to it as "Max liking it" in The Balance, and served it to him for free :D

Liz: Max likes cherry cola. What does Michael like?
Maria: Cherry cola with arsenic? :lol:

So it's reasonable to believe Max ordered it a lot, since he didn't even have to order it for Liz to know. I would assume that going for Snapple would also be appropriated though. That thing was showed around through most of Season 3, not to mention there was an episode named after it... :wink:

But since we're in the subject, where does the term Ice Princess come from? The books? That's through out fanfiction as well.

I think the term Ice Princess may have been in the books but it was never used in the show. Isabel and Alex had a conversation in Four Square where her referred to her desire to go slow as 'glacial' and she told him it was time to melt the ice. I think it's just one of those fanon things.
