Okay see , there's movies, and various cartoons, and then there's real life. Remember, if you see something happening repeatedly in fiction, but never in a documentary, it probably happens repeatedly because it's a popular writing convention.


I think there are ways to get your point across without sounding condescending like you do here. Please be mindful in the future.

Zareh is a character that first appeared in the comic before a concept art was made. What do ya want from me? This was supposed to be a workpage. -Thrair

It's definitely one of those funny background events.


I burst out laughing the first time I saw that page. Poor Thrair, he must regret becoming a loremaster with all these updates to do. ^^;

I mean I did think "Does this sound condescending/insulting" whilst writing it, so I then altered it, to include a reference to the supernatural show when Sam is talking to Dean, and I was sort of attempting to Ape GI-joe PSA in the last part (this was an attempt at humor). So I think this is the least annoying way I personally am able to write, if I am actually thinking of avoiding condescension and upping comedy whilst writing it. (for example I substituted "jocularity" for "comedy" because that's condescending because for every 100 people that uses the word comedy, no one uses the word jocularity).
Ok, you're smart, that much has been shown.

Nah. Benjamin Reuter and Jürg Schweizer did all the actual work.
