This was a hard decision to make. Crissie has been with TDC since the very beginning, she has proven herself to be an incredibly popular character with the fans and she's always been planned to go far in every rendition of TDC considered, even considered a finalist more than once. But the problem is, we just don't have a place for Crissie anymore.
The boxes she ticks is she works as the relatable, KIND of normal female protagonist every cast has. (Gwen, Zoey, Sky)
But she was always just a bit too much like Courtney.
Crissie is a strong willed girl with a business like mind, she can be maternal and has issues with fast food. But, these are quirks to differentiate her from Courtney. We pushed her to be more business like, but Courtney was still just that. With a comic we need to have less contestants to make this a manageable endeavor. Alice, Nina, Tamar, Liz, Pia and Charlotte's roles add a lot more to the dynamic and I feel they take place before Crissie.
I was on the fence about this for a long time, even to the point of attempting to combine her with May from my last TD designs (Based off of Tina Fey's Liz Lemon), and creating an updated design for her. So unfortunately, Crissie will only stay as a cameo or something if we can decide anything is there for her.
Sorry to everyone who wanted to see her in the game, we'll make up for it by making the story as great as we can!
Thank you for understanding.
