this is just a flat colour thing I did with my laptop mouse. just to keep this blog active. I’m still in too much pain to sit and draw with my clipboard or my tablet, so everything is with my poopy touchpad mouse.
Just started, already love it. My question is: Is your version of Jade aware that her grandpa had other kids (or that Rose's mom was her adoptive sister/aunt)
Man you guys are just giving the hard-hitting questions!!!
My answer is that ultimately whether or not Jade was aware of her grandpa having other family, that information won’t ever really be relevant. It hasn’t been relevant thus far in canon proper as far as we can tell, and it won’t really in Act Omega either.
My PERSONAL opinion is that no, Jade has no idea her grandpa had other family. If for no other reason than he died so early in her life, she never got the opportunity to discover that sort of thing. It’s fairly obvious Grandpa Harley raised Joey/Jude and Jade in completely different places, and his wife wasn’t ever a factor in Jade’s life. Possibly the only real hint towards him having other family would be the fact that grandpa would have insisted on being a Grandpa instead of a dad, but even then I think Jade would probably just attribute that to his age.
An interesting question would be if, perhaps, Nanna ever knew about Joey, Jude, or Roxy. I doubt it, but if so, she could potentially be a way to learn about them.
Whether or not Rose or Jade were aware of the relationship between Roxy and Grandpa Harley is another matter. I think they have the information they need to potentially put that connection together, but Jade at least won’t really have a reason to think back on it, I think. Rose, on the other hand, is smart (not that Jade isn’t, but I digress). I think that if she cared enough to put the pieces together, she could figure it out. But at this point in her life I’m not sure how she would feel about that sort of revelation, if she felt anything at all. After all, she’s trying to move on with her life. After everything that’s happened, knowing that would only really be significant in that it TECHNICALLY means Rose and Jade are sort-of related. But they are kind of all sort-of related so like who even cares at that point!
