Wee Thorin waving goodbye to his best friend from chapter 46 of Sansukh, written by @determamfidd.
This is page 1 of a 6-7 pg mini comic I’ve put together. I was going to post it all together, but i thought I’d go ahead and post the first page (mainly because of my impatience ;) since i only have the color of the comic left to do.
While this scene is from Sansukh, (how I interpret it from Erbor’s perspective, rather then with charming little Gimizh), the rest of the pages to follow are just a little scene that I thought would be bittersweet to play out between father and son—Wee Thorin, and Dwalin.
This mini comic is done for love of the Fanfic Sansukh and its creator Determamfidd, so I hope those who see it enjoy :>
Okay so like. On this tour, the EMØTIØNAL RØADSHØW tour, RED is the focal color. And on the Blurryface album, red was present but only as an accent, as Blurryface was represented more by Tyler’s black paint. Red was represented in Josh’s hair and makeup. But now Red is the main color of the tour, everything from red suits to red lights to red things in the showmanship that I won’t list here bc spoiler-y. And also, the tour recap videos focus HEAVILY on Josh, and so does a lot of the showmanship. This tour is a blend of Vessel and BF as opposed to being BF-centered which means they aren’t really promoting the album, they’re just on a second tour for the fans which is awesome because they’re going bigger than ever.
But that pesky color keeps showing up: Red. Red. Red. Everything Red. Early fans will note that in the official logo, Red represented Tyler and Blue was Josh. But as of this album cycle, Red has seemed to be the only surefire thing besides a pitch-shifted voice that showed Blurryface was present. But now they’re embracing the color. So maybe BF is defeated? Or maybe he is so highly present that they don’t realize he’s there? Idk. That’s not on me, you guys can answer that. My theory is regarding the *possibly* soon to come next album.
We’ve seen a lot of red. We haven’t seen blue in years, even on-stage. The boys have stuck to red and black (except for the metallic color of Josh’s mask) and we’ve been lacking blue. Which makes me wonder. Could Blue be the theme of the next album? Red represented Tyler and Red represented Blurryface. But could this next album be Josh focused?
Perhaps you’ve seem the Heathens theories (which I enjoy but don’t know if I should accept as canon for sake of the song being for a film) that the higher-pitched voice may be Josh’s guiding voice or his insecurity? Especially considering you can hear hints of Blurry on the track so it can’t be that BF has a high voice now. I LIKE that idea. Not accepting it fully, but I will accept the part about Josh having a voice that may not be his alone coming soon.
Perhaps what we’ll see is a “Blue” character. This character may take the place of Blurryface as an antagonist for Josh (who is bound to get love at some point hopefully soon.) This character may represent what Josh fears and give Josh and Tyler a new enemy to battle, a new great villain. Someone representing maybe Josh’s optimism and how it can be exploited. Of course, there’s no guarantee that it WON’T be a villain that is evil. It could just be the manifestation of another set of worries for the boys that this time stems from Josh. Perhaps the Blue, like the Red will become a darker shade representing the blues. Maybe the representation of their battles with Depression now that they’ve defeated or addressed their insecurities?
Or perhaps, (and this is the part that is entirely my own making and my own being hopeful, this isn’t derived from other theories like parts of the last one were), Blue will be an antagonist for Blurryface because Tyler has said seriously that he writes about Josh in the music. And that Josh is his inspiration and his best friend and keeps him above water and keeps him alive. Maybe Blurry will still be present. Maybe he’ll be defeated but at great cost. In both of these situations, I’d love to see them go out of character and write the happier songs for themselves and not us. Have Josh’s radiant charisma shine through the album as an inspirational voice or character and give Tyler and us the strength to persevere through the emptiness and to defeat and address our insecurities. I would very much like that. But I don’t believe it’s entirely likely.
In summary; we’re focusing heavily on Ty"s color but Josh as a person, perhaps there will be a focus on Josh’s color in the next album. This focus may be a new character. The character will likely be a different set of problems that the boys face. But perhaps the character will be very Josh-like and give the boys strength to face their problems.
Either way, I look forward to 2017 and all the new music it may likely hold, as Tyler has yet to fail to live up to his standards of a mildly predictable album cycle (every 2 years with a release since No Phun Intended in 2007). If I’m correct though, it’s likely I’ll have to change my blog to fit. -shrug-
Okay but I need a story where Raphael, as a good catholic boy, does confessions.
He can’t be on the holy ground, so it’s not real confession, but he’s friends… he’s something with that old priest and they meet at the park, at any times of the years, and the priest feeds pigeons. Raphael always see how these stupid birds are the same as Mundanes.
There isn’t reconcilation room, and there isn’t sweet smell of candels, but Raphael still starts with “Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.”
Oh, has he sinned.
And he talks and talks - about new leadership, about his clan, he tries to talk about Simon - and he drowns in silence.
Pigeons clap their wings and don’t fly away.
Father Andrew doesn’t watch him, he watches birds, but Raphael knows he listens with intensity.
Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.
“Do you consider homosexuality a sin, Father?”
Words are heavy on Raphaels tongue. He would say they taste like iron, but he knows taste of blood too well.
“Do I consider sex with the man a sin?” Father Andrew says it slowly, like thinking about it for the first time. Raphael knows it can’t be the case. Not nowadays.
But may be, just may be, for Raphael Father Andrew would reconsider it.
“Yeah, I would probably call that a sin.”
Raphael doesn’t shiver under this statement.
The wind ruffles the leaves on the trees.
“But love for the man? True love, forgiving love, selfless love? No, the kind of love like that cannot be a sin, my son.”
Father Andrew looks at him with the warm eyes. They are blue and grey, and not so bright as twenty years ago, but they - wiser. Closer to God, probably.
“I don’t know if my love is forgiving,” Raphael says. The betrayal - the look on the Simon face when it was called so - the rejection, not to Raphael, but to clan, to family… “I really don’t know.”
“You should try to find out,” Father Andrew says. With that kind, but still hard tone of voice twenty years ago he convinced Raphael, that killing himself is unforgiveable sin.
“In the name of Father, Son and Holy Spirit,” Raphael says.
Words are salty and bitter.
