Ellie Buckingham

From Shotgun Shuffling

Jump to: navigation, search

Ellie Buckingham is arguably the main character of the comic (at least the first arc, as per the author here, KK will be main character in final arc and Ellie will just cameo, which isn't surprising since the final story arc will be taking place at the same chronological time in-comic as this arc with the 'split point' being around the comic "Ratches"). Ellie has distinguished herself by being booted from her parents house, booted from her apartment before returning and voluntarily leaving her apartment before returning. Her employment track record follows a similar pattern with quit, almost fired, almost promoted, (or technically promoted dependant on how "Manager in training" was viewed at O'Jacks) fired, quit and currently holding down an unknown number of seasonal (Christmas) jobs (stated by Quinn to be four here, though possibly that's meant to be more joking than serious). Oh yea, she seems to have just quit one of the those to go shopping on Black Thursday. Ellie is under the assumption that her family believes that Quinn and Ellie are a lesbian couple. Though it may just be Ginger messing with Ellie. She occasionally finds Quinn stupid sexy.

Non-comic appearances.

Ellie and other Shotgun Shuffle characters seem to occasionally post in the comments of various comics. It's unknown who the posters are and it is doubtful that these appearances are considered canon but it adds a level of fun to the overall Shotgun Shuffle experience. Ellie's first post in the comments of the comic can be found here and she's posted periodically ever since.
