Graeystone: Been asked about the recent episode The Times They Are A Changeling and
how that affects the comic. That episode doesn’t affect the comic for
the following reasons:
The comic was started long before the
episode aired and I don’t want to make the kind of changes that line up
the comic with canon concerning Thorax. With the path that’s laid out
for the comic, Thorax couldn’t fit in anywhere without seriously
distracting from the regular cast.
MLP the cartoon is a child’s
show. They have to ‘soften’ characters like Chrysalis so she remains
'kid friendly’. The comic is not a kids comic as shown on page 11.
This is also 'realistic comic’ in some ways. Chrysalis is reflective of
just about every real life dictator/tyrant in the present and past.
Simply put - dictators do not care about their people. Also the
Changeling Hive reflects real life insect hives, not the ones found in
the movies Antz or A Bug’s Life.
………. Alright. Alright, I can do this. I’m going to apologise in advance, because this is long. Really, really, really long. But give me this at least. Give me this. One last time. One
last time. One last time, for old time’s sakes—
afternoon slowly progressed into evening, and as the booths of
various goods had the final, finishing touches added to them, the Rom
returned to their camps, and settled down for a quiet evening.
All except Fade,
who, with Dark’s and Black Lotus’s help, emptied and reset the
Catter’s nets and traps, and then, helped her drain, and cut up her
catches. The group then salted the meat and fish, so it would be
ready for tomorrow.
Esper was grateful
that the hunters had decided to use Penny’s old forging tent to do
all this, as she and Marchhare cooked the veggie skewers. The heavy
fabric of the tent kept the smell of meat trapped inside.
Puff sighed as she
feed Bijou her milk. “It is… difficult.” She said, “Having a
carnivore for a mate. I love her Dearly, but sometimes the thought of
her killing those animals…” She shuddered.
