Re: Current Comic


I don't know that the thing with his band was specifically designed to break hearts... let's take a look back.
The story arc starts here: http://www.wanderingchaos.com/uc/081505.html
You don't need me to link every subsequent comic to refresh your memory on the story itself. But take a look here: http://www.wanderingchaos.com/uc/091205.html
I realize that the UC art style is not incredibly detailed, so perhaps I may be searching too much here, but Jacob doesn't look particularly manipulative. He seems almost remorseful about whatever happened, and his argument is logical.
http://www.wanderingchaos.com/uc/091605.html
This is most likely a counter point to my argument. It could be that he planned it to work out that way, that Nicodemus would give in and help him. But what we're looking at is the motivation. Is there any reason for him to go out of his way to hurt Nicodemus? No, not that we can see. It seems that the situation he presents is, we have to assume, truthful (though I suppose that could be undone if we see this... scrawny Robin with Jacob's band, though even with that, he could have come back.) and Nicodemus really is the best option for a quick solution because he knows the songs and can sing.
So, Nicodemus gives in and goes along with it. We don't see if Jacob calls the other members, and I say give him the benefit of the doubt. It's unlikely that they could find someone that could learn the songs and fill in with such a short time frame. It's reasonable that they could replace their fallen member by this new gig, though. Nicodemus was just a filler.
Now, am I saying that Jacob is not a complete asshole? http://www.wanderingchaos.com/uc/101205.html Of course not. He hurt Nicodemus badly, and knows it. That said, I don't think he intended for the turn of events that led to it.
So, !@#$ happens, Ikku and Kelsi go fight of the Vamp, and Kelsi goes back to find Nicodemus after the show.
http://www.wanderingchaos.com/uc/111805.html
Yes, Jacob is wrong for doing that. It's out of line. But he knows he can push that line, and I'm inclined to believe that he really was happy with Nicodemus, though I'm not opposed to thinking that it could have been at the expense of Nicodemus.
Jacob appears to be highly intelligent, and that distances him from others, giving him somewhat of a disability when it comes to social interaction. In his case, it doesn't manifest in him being socially awkward; he manages to turn it to his advantage and evaluate people without the same emotional blurring that they have. He liked his relationship with Nicodemus, so when the opportunity presented itself, he found nothing wrong with trying to bring Nicodemus back into it. Is it right? No. But I don't think he designed it, he simply went along with it.
That long explanation out of the way, I don't find any reason why his show would have anything to do with breaking any more hearts. In fact, the only way I could see it involving that is if Nicodemus for some reason is still involved with the band. We'll have to wait and see.

Specifically designed to or not, I think the picture with said heart in two pieces did that.

Re: Current Comic


Ah, but that could be a misinterpretation on her part, due to the androgyny of the... elf? Pointy ears, at least. Anyway, the girl may be drawing the wrong conclusions. Meanwhile, Jacob is actually being quite benevolent here, helping out this other-dimensional being that he has no particular reason to help.

Re: Current Comic


Note that with Jacob, it dun't matter if it's a he or a she.
As far as help, it wouldn't surprise me if Jacob finds a way to get something out of helping the "elf". However, he is behaving himself at the moment so we'll just have to see.

Re: Current Comic


True. Though I'm speaking more for the girl, as she may not know that, and just be drawing conclusions. He may get something, who knows.

Other thoughts: Today's comic (eventual link will be here http://www.wanderingchaos.com/uc/010810.html ) while just art... I have to say, Kelsi is very pretty.

And now for something completely different... emoticon
As far as our heroes go, *hugs Kelsi as she faces the crowd on stage*. Technically, Ikku yelling at her sounds like she needs a little love, too, but my soul doesn't seem to permit it at the moment.
I hope nothing too bad happened...~

It's Blood! (because we all thought it was food coloring, yes)
Well, we can't rule out Kimberly just yet, but if it's not her, then something's probably still lurking around the theater.
*lurkinglurkinglurking*
Just my guess, ^.^

Re: Current Comic


So... just gonna start off with this: http://www.wanderingchaos.com/uc/021809.html
strengthening conclusions that have already been put into the comic. So, who thinks Ikku = Queenkiller?
-Quick reaction to the horn, as if she knew what it meant
-different expression than the other four when seeing the... fairy? for the first time. (Nicodemus and Kelsi = Surprised, Naim = nothing, Ikku = something that is not surprise. I see it as she knew what she was going to see.)
-Ikku knowing much more than the other 3
-Ikku's newly shown abilities, and Naim's accusation
-Her focus on the play, with now two separate parties going through and explaining that Ikku treats this like history and spent a long time developing the character of the queenkiller.
Anything else?

Re: Current Comic


Hmmm...the way things are shaping up. I think it much more likely that Ikku is the queen herself. We've seen images of what looks to be the queen killer and what looks to be the queen, and Ikku seems to more resemble the queen when they saw themselves floating in the air.


Btw, I'm new. Hi!

Re: Current Comic


Hello there! Interesting thoughts you have, though I must call upon you to elaborate, perhaps. I didn't remember seeing the Queen before, but I did recall the Four up in the air when the goo was there, so I went back looking through the archives (all of it, actually) and you are quite right: Ikku's costume here http://www.wanderingchaos.com/uc/011510.html is, minus the differences of the wings, the same as this here http://www.wanderingchaos.com/uc/091004.html so good eye and memory, friend. The only thing I'm not sure of is if you mean the images of the Queen Killer and the Queen to be the costumes/props that have been designed.
If Ikku is the queen, then I must wonder, why is she here, in this world? The Queen Killer, we know, escaped ( http://www.wanderingchaos.com/uc/102809.html http://www.wanderingchaos.com/uc/041610.html ) and is currently being hunted down (potentially in this world because it is between many others: http://www.wanderingchaos.com/uc/121609.html ) but why is the Queen here? And why does Ikku, if she is the Queen, pretend to be human? Interesting questions.
