Colección de ilustraciones para promocionar el Kickstarter de iClassics, un proyecto muy interesante (en el que participo) que promueve la literatura y la acerca de una forma interactiva en una experiencia inmersiva total. Realmente vale mucho la pena.

If there’s one thing that really gets me during this episode, is the failed opportunity RT missed with keeping Adam’s White Fang branch separate from the White Fang as a whole. 

To me, the White Fang has become a group of boring, stale little grunts that don’t bring much to the table other than to be part of Adam and Company. They went from a peaceful organization of a group of people that were wronged, discriminated, and ostracized to basically just lackeys for the whim of one psychopathic dude hell bent on ruining any possible chances of peace and equality. And I don’t mean that just because they’ve turned to more violent assaults. If written right, they could still compel a reasonable argument with plenty of shaded and gray areas as to why they’ve become like this (ex: humans not listening while they protested peacefully, their people still being mistreated, etc.).

The problem is, it’s not being written right. The White Fang, as a whole, are treated as these comical grunts and just, simply, have no sense of depth. And in this episode, I saw a chance that could have added more to them but RT just had to shoot their own foot. 

In this episode, we get a bit of info as to how the WF work, with sister branches in possibly all of the main cities. We also see the possibility that Adam’s branch in Vale could have been overtaken by him, and could hold different views from the main WF as a whole. I don’t know about you, but seeing different views within the WF amongst branch leaders, how they view humans and what level of violence they would tolerate, and how they would condone/respond to their own members behaving this way… would have been infinitely more interesting for the organization than, “Hur dur Adam seems to control way more than just the Vale branch and it seems like the WF all back him up hurhur betcha didn’t see that coming???” They literally just redefined them as grunts once again, lacking any depth.

AND. HONESTLY. THE FACT THAT THEY DIDN’T EVEN LET YOU SPECULATE A BIT ON WHETHER THE TWO DUDES REALLY DIDN’T FOLLOW ADAM OR NOT NOT EVEN 30 SECONDS AFTER THAT… IS. WOW.

No suspense. No build up. Definitely not shocking because that was like revealing a fucking twist for a toddler aimed show “WHERE’S SWIPER? DO YOU KNOW WHERE SWIPER IS????? OH WOW HE’S HERE.

My point is. If you’re going to fucking make them seem mysterious and add some form of suspense to your new supposed “villains” can you do better than literally revealing them a few seconds afterwards? 

Miles and Kerry could have literally ended their scene with just these lines, 

“An interesting development, wouldn’t you say?” 

“Interesting indeed…”

And that’s it. That would at least give the viewers something to chew on. Why is it interesting? Are they good? Bad? Do they seem shady? Can we trust them?

But no. NoooOoOOoOoOoOO. We gotta reveal where fucking Swiper is.
