Chapter 51 : Page 28

Postby Kern » Thu May 04, 2017 1:00 am

Vaelia the optimist, cheering the two with her hope for the future as the two bro fights to get their machine going in the snow.
Getting a golem moving in the snow has to be extremely exhausting but he's stubborn and he has to put his mind into it. Kau already is the better golem user of the group and he'll be even more after the time skip.
Plus vaelia is cute. Its weird to think "Hey Vaelia is old now" but Vaelia is our age o_o by the time we go to this chapter we aged as much as vaelia did.

Vaelie throwing out red flags tonight. Nothing good comes from good people doing good things in the world of drow.

The optimists in this comic have not had the greatest survival rate so far...

...yeah, good people make mistakes too.

Particularly once you find yourself in a situation where the good and the bad choice aren't very clear, as leaders so often do.

Heh, and here I thought Ariel would hope for Koil to take over. :P

Seriously though, it does make me sad that she will never get to live the life she wanted to live because of this....

Particularly since the only time Quain was happy when she was remembering her adventures. Ariel won't have even that comfort....(though admittedly she will have friends and family and generally healthier relationships with people so actually that is pretty good, but still it would have been nice to see the world when she is still young enough to do so without worrying about mana deprivation)

...Citation? Good people doing good things have been a bit scarce on the ground, let alone below it.

Holy hell. *eek*

I feel old now. At least not as old as mom there, but still.

I kind of like the symbolism of them all discussing bringing the clan back up, paired with the visual of Kau and Sar'nel working together to bring a broken thing back to life (so to speak). It's a nice homage to the idea of them all supporting each other to accomplish their goals and to strengthen the clan as a whole.

Good point.

And whoa, Sarnel is being a lot more expressive and exuberant than usual! *eek*

Vaelia has been the exception, so perhaps she's injecting a bit of her own kind of magic here. Kinda need some happy thoughts right now.

Kyonne too is doing pretty good for being an optimistic person.

I dunno, still a bit worried about her last appearance. She led Ariel to Snadhya for a chance at the cure and saw that it led Ariel to be injured terribly. At the best Ariel isn't going to be friendly towards her (to put it lightly), at the worst there was an immediate reason for her expecting the cure in exchange for Ariel being lead to a dinner instead of a tour of the airship...

Edit: Didn't past tense properly... or Kyo'nne had an obsession with using heavier metals on Ariel. Meh, either/or.
