Ginger Buckingham

From Shotgun Shuffling

Jump to: navigation, search


Ginger is the oldest of seven Buckingham sisters from Herb and Rosemary's marriage. (Buckingham being her maiden name, her married name is currently unknown.) Married to William, Ginger is "trying to recreate the experience... but in Bizzaro world" with her sons Percy, Amper, Tag and Asperand. Ginger has passed on the family birthmark to her children.

Some fans speculated that one of Ginger's children was in fact the child of Juniper's which Ginger is raising. This has since been confirmed. It was believed due to Ellie's statement to Quinn that Juniper's relationship with the boyfriend she stole from Quinn, Zane, ended when Zane moved out of state and Juniper dropped out of school after getting pregnant. It was also hinted at by the author in the comments like this one. It was finally confirmed during the Black Friday arc when Juniper tries to show preferential treatment with gift giving and Ginger confronts her over it.

We see from Rosemary's flashbacks during the first plot B arc, that Ginger and William's relationship was controversial and caused friction, ultimately culminating in a less than ideal talk about Ginger's first time.

Non-comic appearances.

Ginger 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. Ginger's first post in the comments of the comic can be found here and she's posted periodically ever since.

Based upon this comment, the meta-Ginger commenter appears to be the commenter who has gone by "Ikaru" for longer.
