So i’ve just binged the entirety of Infinity Train after ogling the clips of season 3 floating around and GOD I love this show, this is an amazing concept brought to the table, and I really really want to expand on it, mostly via my own characters, but also maybe attempt some takes on the characters in the show too!! I’m looking to explore the possible motives and workings of the train, and if the train really can provide the healing it promises, will everyone naturally respond to the treatment as positively as Tulip? What qualifies having such a high number like Simon and Grace? Are the beings made in the train real and sentient, what happens when they realise they too are on the train? Can they all escape like Lake? These are just some of the things that go through my mind when i’m watching, and I have no trouble exploring any and all ideas, because the way the show is set up, it’s definitely a ‘rules are meant to be broken’ type world, it seems to have no true degree, apart from, only a 0 can get you off the train.
I do have an original character in mind, who is set up to challenge the actual system of treatment, can her ‘problem’ really be fixed this way, and does it need to be fixed at all? Honestly I am just happy to throw her into a pile of passangers and see them all interact and get by, perhaps entering the train at a similar time to Tulip, where the conductor isn’t present for the introductions. It’s definitely a work in progress but, if you have any ideas of characters you wanna bring to the table, i’m definitely down to hear them out!
I’m aware this is a long shot search, as the fandom is pretty small, but genuinely, if you haven’t given this show a watch, do, it’s an amazing new concept brought to the table, and hit me in the heart many times, so treat yourself!
