  1. Story Friday August 18, 2017

    Like I said in the last post and at least one post quite some time ago, Sirleck's not dead yet. Sirleck is the type of abberation Immortals hate the most; he hasn't survived by being careless. There's some prize he's going for that justifies the enormous risk he's taking. I think the only reason he co-operated with Magus to allow Elliot to get to the Dewitchery Diamond. was that he knew Magus could always find him and an Immortal could always find Magus if she wanted to. Maybe Sirleck's real goal is to get Magus killed, removing the connection between himself and that very dangerous Immortal. I suspect it's quite hard for most Immortals to detect aberrations of Sirleck's ilk. It would be sweet revenge to possess Magus' body--but Magus with a body would become once again an extremely powerful wizard. Powerful wizards can even threaten Immortals. Of course, there is another Immortal who's aware of Sirleck, but Sirleck doesn't know that yet.
  2. Story Friday August 18, 2017

    Well, it sounds to me like Pandora is getting ready to fight, but I don't think she expects to fight tonight. It hasn't been quite explicitly stated that Pandora knows about Sirleck, but Sirleck does seem to know about Pandora, or at least that Magus was working with an Immortal. Why would I think that Pandora doesn't know about Sirleck? Because he's not dead yet. I'm wondering if Dan really had the plot thought out as far as we've gotten when he made this title page a little more than a year ago. Notice someone missing? Sirleck himself is Voltaire's catspaw. Now since Voltaire manipulated Sirleck by impersonating Abner the fedora-wearing detective (maybe he got that hat from John Troutman?) near the end of So a Date at the Mall, it may be that Dan thought you readers were smart enough to figure that out without his squeezing one more background loomer in this title page. I'm also wondering if we're going to see Abner the detective in Catspaws. He could make for a plot device to warn at least one of our characters. And any anachronistic film-noir detective worthy of Dashiell Hammet or Raymond Chandler wouldn't stop digging just because a client told him he was finished with a case.

    There's a certain amount of pain and loss that is needed to make you human. You need to experience your own pain to develop real empathy toward the pain of others.

    Indubitably, but Jerry 2.0 doesn't know everything Classic Jerry did, so he could be wrong.
  5. NP Wednesday August 16, 2017

    Good point. I'm not giving up yet, though. Anything Jerry says in Goonmanji 2 may or may not be true in Canon.
  6. NP Wednesday August 16, 2017

    Pandora barely has a history with Jerry 2.0. Explain how this would affect Pandora's reset.
  7. NP Wednesday August 16, 2017

    Time for another Amazing Crackpot Plot Theory! Goonmanji 2 isn't canon, but Dan said Hanma as a character is canon. Could it be that Hanma will be the reset Pandora?
  8. NP Wednesday August 16, 2017

    "Hanma" has five listings in the names database of the Jim Breen's Japanese Internet Dictionary, all surnames; "Akane" has ten listings, all feminine given names. If Hanma's moral compass is going to be Susan, we may be setting course for the final frontier.

    Actually we all sort of reset, continuously. How much do you remember from ten years ago? Do any of you really remember much from when you were three or four? Chances are excellent that much of what you think you remember is wrong. Getting back to the story, I think we should remember that Pandora has had a few words with Young Jerry, who seems to retain some of the affection that Old Jerry felt for Susan beyond the obligation of that Vow. Anyway, Pandora probably isn't going to reset voluntarily before Sarah has drained the excess magic and Adrian has taken down the dam, certainly not before she speaks with Adrian again, which she told Sarah she wasn't going to do until Saturday--tomorrow, Moperville time. She'll at least want to tell Adrian what she's going to try to do and why before she resets in case it doesn't work and she loses the parts of her she wants to keep. However, the forecast is trending toward at least one battle tonight, and Pandora's unlikely to peace out if her family looks like it's about to lose. Thus, she's still quite likely to go too far and get reset without proper preparation.
  10. Story Monday August 14, 2017

    This is a really revealing comic. Pandora's only borderline psychic when she abandons empathy and kindness. Does that sound dangerously close to an abberation abandoning empathy? I think it's also confirming that Pandora is going to be blindsided by tonight's scheduled activities because she doesn't want to pay the price of becoming borderline psychic again.
  11. NP Fri Aug 11, 2017

    According to Young Jerry, she has more than enough power.
  12. Story Friday August 11, 2017

    Except that they reset improperly soon after this, quite possibly because of this. Still, a good theory as to their motivation. Whatever else, "kill all vampires" still seems to be their Prime Directive.
  13. Story Friday August 11, 2017

    Could be. But how did they know about Nanase? They just happened to be nearby when Susan was attacked? Paris is a large city, and we're not even sure the attack happened in Paris, only that it happened in France.
  14. Story Friday August 11, 2017

    Nope, but your theory intrigues me. Mine was that Adrian asked them to watch over Susan. Logic nagged me that it would only work if Adrian knew Susan was his daughter. Since Adrian seems to have lived mostly in Europe before coming to the United States, he could have known H&D from way back. I think Mama Kitsune could have protected Nanase by simply refusing to let her go to France. But then again, why does Mama Kitsune want Nanase to master French?
  15. Story Friday August 11, 2017

    I agree with your idea that a hasty vow just made before an involuntary reset could screw up things, but since I think that the most likely cause of the H&D reset was witnessing how traumatized Susan was after she killed the vampire in France, I would think said vow would be about Susan, or vampires, or both. Susan was familiar to them, but they didn't seem to remember much else. Exactly why were Helen and Demetrius in France? If they'd been there for any amount of time, they should have had at least once contact with the French equivalent of Edward's outfit; who else is likely to have professional vampire slayers on staff? So why didn't they get local help? The other thing they sort of remembered was they were following someone when they encountered Susan and Nanase. But Demetrius said it didn't make sense because why were they following Elliot? I was about to float another Amazing Crackpot Plot Theory, but unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately for you) my darned logic talked me out of it before I had time to write it down.
