Your input has been read and fully understood. We at the CWCki will be sure to expand the subtopics under the Liquid Saga in the future and make an effort to add
|Troll disclosure: This persona was created or used by trolls to manipulate Chris. |
Though this identity is contrived, the CWCki may treat it as if it were a real identity because it was to Chris. (It's also funnier that way.)

Liquid Chris (real name: Christopher Duckworth; born 1990) claimed to be the TRUE and HONEST Christian Weston Chandler, and the one and only creator of the Electric Hedgehog Pokémon Sonichu. In reality, he was simply an impersonator on YouTube who initially just made videos to amuse himself and his friends. Liquid was played by identical twin brothers Chris and Jon Duckworth (born 1990). Chris portrayed Liquid on YouTube and in the PVCC Forums, while Jon portrayed him during the Sing-Star Challenge.
Liquid Chris gets his nickname from Metal Gear Solid, a video game which featured a storyline of the clone "brother" of the player character, Solid Snake (hence why Christian Weston Chandler is referred to as Solid Chris in this saga, as he will be for the remainder of this page). Eventually, Solid discovered Liquid, and he actually believed that he was an impostor trying to take credit for his glorious creation, rather than just being an impersonator. Once he was in Solid's sights, Liquid decided to up his game by playing along with his rivalry with Chris-Chan (as would his fans), and became a full-time troll.
Liquid insisted that he was the real Chris-Chan, and chose to address his counterpart as the impostor Ian Brandon Anderson, based on the initials of his IBAChandler YouTube username. Liquid would eventually get into fights with Solid over Kacey's heart, briefly halting production of videos when Liquid was kidnapped by Solid (portrayed by the other twin filming the video). Liquid made a triumphant return to defend Kacey's honor, and they retired from trolling Chris after "getting married". This saddened Chris, though he quickly got over it and moved onto finding another sweetheart after about a day.

June 2009 was a busy month for Solid Chris full of highs and lows. Solid was getting out of the house more and knocking back some Long Islands with a new group of acquaintances. He was given the reins to his shiny new CWCipedia and had his YouTube account "CChanSonichu" compromised. Yes, he was Rollin' and Trollin' indeed.

A challenger appears

At the end of the month a new YouTube account, http://www.youtube.com/user/CChanSonichuCWC, appeared with a simple premise: that the real Christian Weston Chandler (henceforth Liquid Chris) was back online after a long absence, during which he lost his account to hackers, so all the weirdness on "CChanSonichu" was the work of hacking trolls, and he announced that he was ready to resume posting HONEST content on his new account. This new CWC posted four more videos, much of which were parodies of earlier videos by Solid Chris.
|“||How else would I get fan art, if I was not the original creator of Sonichu?||”|
|Liquid Chris, 3 July 2009|
Notably, Liquid Chris sported:
- An official Sonichu medallion (made out of paper)
- A striped shirt (brown)
- A pair of rather bulky glasses which would look ridiculous on anybody else.
- Obesity (by means of a stuffed shirt, later removed)
- A distinctive nasal voice
All of which, of course, made him almost indistinguishable from Solid Chris! Solid himself made no comment, probably because he didn't notice the new videos among the chatter of all the other trolling. The alternative — that Solid just ignored them — is far too reasonable to consider.
Ian Brandon Anderson

What really cranked this up to eleven was a chain of events that started with Solid Chris getting his "CChanSonichu" channel back: First, Solid posted a series of videos on 10 July 2009 where he "called out" three trolls by their YouTube handles, and dropped their dox (well, dropped "supposed states of residence"). That resulted in the permanent banhammer for "CChanSonichu".
The next piece fell into place when he posted his Rollin' and Trollin' video on his new YouTube account, "IBAChandler". When it hit Encyclopedia Dramatica, newfags everywhere momentarily lost control of their bowels, thinking they'd been trolled by a grand master. Trolls, however, did what trolls do best: they started riffing on it. Pretty quickly, YouTube comments popped up referring to Solid as "Ian Brandon Anderson". Such was the price of success for Solid's small drop of near win in his sea of epic fail: he had delivered unto his enemies a weapon that they'd use for months.
Even then, the damage control from that episode alone would probably have kept him from noticing Liquid's videos. Until that is, Liquid raised the stakes in an attempt to get Solid's attention.

|DO NOT BUY from the Impostor, "http://www.youtube.com/user/CChanSonichuCWC CWCCChanSonichuCWC". HE IS CRAPPY, and his Nasal Voice is JUST DOWNRIGHT AWFUL.
Also, if I wanted to buy PAPER, I'd go to Wal-Mart and buy 500 FULL 8.5 X 11 Sheets for about 5 dollars!
F*** HIM TO HELL!
Solid also took time out from his busy schedule to post threats on Liquid's YouTube comments:
|The Final Showdown
Hey, DUMBASS! YOU WISH YOU WERE ME! I would say YOU are Stuck... IN MINUS-SECOND-GEAR!
I am Calling YOU OUT!
But "Naive" is even WORSE than NAILS.
You are a Nerd and a Whimp!
Have a good day.
Even at this point, Solid Chris still may have let this all go, as he was simultaneously getting blackmailed by Jack Thaddeus, who was holding his PSN account to ransom. But as that wound down, Liquid caught Solid's eye again, by picking up on the Ian Brandon Anderson meme:
|Hello, again, Loyal Fans,
It is I again, Christian Weston Chandler. NOT Christopher Christian Weston Chandler as EVERYONE KNOWS I Changed my name FROM Christopher to Christian (PS: That Troll, as Some have now Informed Me, his Real Name is IAN BRANDON ANDERSON). Anyway, I am Working Very Hard on Sonichu 9 and Things may be Progressing Heavily with my new TRUE Gal-Pal Kacey and I. Also, Expect more Announcements of this Developing Caliber in the Future.

For whatever reason, Solid dug up an old video of himself failing at Guitar Hero and dumped it online. Liquid shot back with a TRUE and HONEST rendition on a real guitar.

More video rage followed before Solid attempted a cunning plan:
|“||También. Mi presente. Responde en español bueño. ¿Si no que bueño? Tu no eres el verdad. Tu eres el impostor.||”|
|Solid Chris, CWC Update 29 July 2009|
The plan backfired when Liquid responded more fluently in Spanish, French, German, and Japanese.

And then he shaved his goatee off. Dry. With a safety razor.
As expected, the contest went to Liquid, the absolute chad, and Solid, as always, was a sore loser about it. Liquid had a tally of four votes in favor, two against. He then took his leave from the competition, after announcing a number of personal coups:
- That he'd finally found a true sweetheart, Kacey.
- That he'd landed a job as a Production Manager and Game Designer at Microsoft for a Sonichu game for all consoles.
- That Dark Horse Comics would be publishing his Sonichu comics, making him even more filthy rich, with the opening of the CWCStore.
And finally, that he had decided to stop battling the Solid, and move out of his parents' house to live in Redmond, Seattle, to continue his happy, successful life.

|“||You’re breaking my balls here.||”|
On 9 August 2009, Liquid called Solid up and confronted him over the slanderous lies he was telling on YouTube. Solid tried reason, and when that failed, he threatened to get Liquid arrested for identity theft, dragging Bob into the debacle along the way:
|If you DO NOT COME CLEAN RIGHT NOW, I am going to get my father in on this further, and you are going to get FUCKING ARRESTED, THROWN IN JAIL AND YOU WILL NOT GET TO LIVE THE PEACEFUL, HAPPY LIFE THAT KACEY AND I WOULD LIKE YOU TO LIVE, BECAUSE KACEY REALLY CARES FOR YOU, MAN!|
"I, Christian Weston Chandler of Ruckersville, Virginia, Have Grown Up."
On 14 August 2009, Liquid announced that he was departing YouTube for the time being to pursue turning his Sonichu series into an acclaimed media franchise.

Of course, this sent Solid completely over the deep end. First, he raged:
|“||STOP THAT IMPOSTOR BASTARD WHO HAS BEEN POSING WITH MY NAME, MY ADDRESS, MY PHONE NUMBER, EVERYTHING! STOP HIM! HE DESERVES NOTHING!||”|
|Solid Chris, "NO D*** WAY, IMPOSTOR!!!"|
Then, he tried reason:
|The Singstar Challenge was NEVER to verify who was the real Christian Weston Chandler, because everyone on the Internet knows that I am, he's the impostor. They should quit encouraging him. And I wish that he would stop his stupid, damn, dirty game. I don't know what the heck is wrong with his head. [his voice gets higher] He ain't right. He don't even let me get a word in edgewise. He just keeps going on and on AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ON AND ONNNNNNNNN! Worse than my father!|

Chris's sweetheart, Kacey, was distraught over the event and posted a video confirming Chris's disappearance and announcing her withdrawal from their engagement.

- Main article: Kacey
Liquid Chris reappeared on 15 October 2009 with a new video explaining the trials and tribulations of the past few months, and igniting a heated love triangle with Solid for Kacey's affections. According to Liquid, he had been unlawfully detained in a meat-packing factory, and when he managed to escape, he found himself in Africa. With the assistance of a few others, Liquid managed to make his triumphant return to Ruckersville, and the stage was set from there on out.
When the dust had settled, Solid's behavior had offended Kacey's father and, through his immaturity, pushed Kacey back into the loving TRUE and HONEST arms of the Liquid.

THIS will NOT STAND, you HOMO JERK.
FROM: the True C.W.C with Birth Name Christopher.
Liquid Chris is now married to his beloved sweetheart, Kacey. As the one TRUE and HONEST creator of Sonichu, his artwork and comics are extremely popular and he often attracts many beautiful boyfriend-free girls with his medallions and his Guitar of Win.
Liquid makes mad cash by selling said medallions at Otakon and other anime conventions while voicing Solid in Sonichu: The Animated Series. He has also made several hundred thousand dollars from his two critically acclaimed games, Pokémon: Lightning Version and Sonichu: The Crystal Chronicles for the Nintendo DS and Xbox 360, respectively. On 27 July 2011, Liquid bid fond faredieu to the trolling universe on YouTube by closing his account.
Solid Chris then considered Liquid Chris a friend.
After Chris Duckworth abandoned his Liquid Chris persona, he acquired a BS in oncology, and he currently works as a cancer research doctor. Time will tell if his findings will bring us one step closer to the cure.
While Chris Duckworth has retired from trolling Chris-Chan, he recorded a parody of the theme song to The Cleveland Show at some point prior to November 2015, when the video was reuploaded. The song was eventually animated as The Chris-Chan Show in November 2020, which would attract the attention of Chris-Chan.
In the years since, Chris eventually forgot about much of the Liquid Chris saga. However, in fall 2019 Chris created a TSSSF card of Liquid Chris, showing he still holds some animosity towards him – the card describes Liquid as a villain utilizing "pretentious acting".

Liquid's last statement
I have been Enjoying the Married Life with my Sweetheart and making Several Hundred Thousand Dollars at Nintendo and Microsoft on Pokemon: Lightning Version and Sonichu: The Crystal Chronicles for the Microsoft X-box. I do not have much time for the Youtube, but my Good Friend Dr. Aleksander Egorov (a Physics Animator) has taught me how to Edit Well. In my Spare Time, I have been honing my own Skills as an Editor. I created this Project for my Loyal Fans, who are STILL being TERRIBLY ANNOYED by the Fraud, Ian Brandon Anderson. It is Very Nice to have a home in Redmond, Washington now; I do not care for the fact that I do not stay in one place for long. Perhaps I will be coming to a Convention Near You, Sonichu fans. I thank God and Jesus every day for Each One of you. This is my message for now; Goodbye.
Gladly to be Where I Am,
Christian Weston Chandler
PS: As I have SO MANY MESSAGES now, do not Trust that yours can, or will, be answered; I appreciate EVERY ONE, and all Nice Comments.
IBAChandler has mocked Liquid on several points:
It's a bad sign when one is fighting a mirror, and worse when the mirror is winning, worse still if it is a fun-house mirror made especially to mock you.
In early August 2009, Solid began to believe that Liquid couldn't be the real Chris because only the real Christian Weston Chandler is a retard who is the laughing stock of the Internet. Therefore, the fact that Liquid isn't trolled and doesn't do dumb shit suggests that he isn't the real Chris. Of course, previously mentioned theories seem to disprove this assertion.
In a further fit of irony, Ian ended up impersonating Liquid in a bizarre attempt to woo Liquid's girlfriend, Kacey.
And in a last irony, Ian impersonated Chris who was impersonating him impersonating...or something...in "100 2270".
In the comic
Despite being one of the most important events in Christory, the Liquid Saga is addressed in only two pages within the entirety of Sonichu. On 17 November 2009, Liquid made his very first appearance in Solid' Chris's Sonichu #9. Solid, being the slanderous impostor that he is, had the nerve to claim that Liquid's name was Ian Brandon Anderson, and once again tried (and failed) to convince everyone that he was the TRUE and ORIGINAL creator of the Sonichu franchise.
Since Liquid's fate in the comic remained nebulous at best, Ben Saint commissioned a piece from Solid Chris that explained Liquid's ultimate fate. To the surprise of Saint himself, Chris actually delivered. The piece was revealed in a YouTube lecture by Saint on the timeline of the Sonichu canon and included commentary by Beel, Sonichu, Rosechu and Chris himself.
|“||So, you want to know the fate of the past impostor of Christian, as the original person was known? Simply put, IBAChandler, he was dragged down to hell, punished of identity theft, and all of his memories and past incarnations reset. His soul was born a fresh blank into a newborn child, and his old body was burned in Hell's lava pool.||”|
|Beel in the commissioned art.|
However, Sonichu 13 its mentioned that an "Ian Brandon Anderson" was elected as the head police chief of CWCville. Whether these two were meant to be the same character (thus making the commissioned comic page non-canon) or a totally different person with a similar name was never explained.
