In Another Life Keith and Laura made some lovely Fennec Foxes. :mrgreen:
I wonder what color their children would be. Hope this gets colored one day.
Next you can find my rambling about hybrids, it is a bit longer than i expected hence the spoiler tag.
Spoiler!
The first thing that went through my mind was: "that is impossible" we have been told that hybrids are not possible. Or is it?
If i remember correctly we were told human/keidran offspring can't exist and we all assumed it applies to basitins too. But, if we start splitting hairs here, you could argue that we were not told anything about basitin/keidran hybrids at all.
For what i gather Ephemural allowed the conception of Trace and Flora child. But he also mentioned he was "bringing bask and old race" one he "has not allowed to exist" implying that ,at some poin,t Keidran Hybrids were possible but for some reason, my guess is that if messed with the mask's game scoring system, they were banned. The other option is that Flora is gonna end up like Arianna from bloodborne , no, just no.
Common sense would dictate to do the same with Basitins but considering their behavior I imagine no Basitin, except Keith, would even consider getting that close with a human/keidran. I also imagine that their government has a few laws to prevent that anyway. And considering most of them live on a secluded archipelago maybe the masks did not bother to stop basitin hybrids from appearing.
Thus we can have cute Fennec Foxes!

I agree, we know Eric is a pervert, but that painting does not even makes sense.

Doomguy & Daisy
Demons Beware!
If the universe is infinite, does that mean that there is a version of me out there who's thinking the exact same thing?

While we're on the topic of alternate universes, is there one where I'm a lawyer? If yes, then I may be more evil than I thought.

Considering the actual Daisy died horrible on the second, or was the first?, Doom game this is a rather nicer outcome. And seeing doomguy sitting calmly is nice, for a change.

Flora passes judgement on your ships on the Justice Card (j/k). Wonder if we'll see all the Major Arcana?

Trace will either be The Star or the Fool.

<list of arcana snipped>
This is a neat diversion here. I'd never read about the symbolism of tarot cards before, it's pretty interesting. I took a stab at coming up with my own list, after covering up yours so that I wouldn't be influenced by your choices. We ended up making some similar picks, but there were some notable differences too. I tried to go based on the interpretations of each card's message rather than just the names (which were all I ever knew about them before), and I also made it (almost) all characters instead of allowing any inanimate objects. I'm still not sure on a few of them, and some cards I don't really see a character that's a *great* fit, but it's a neat exercise. I put no stock in astrology or the like, of course, but this stuff is still very interesting simply as philosophical statements about human nature and the way we try to interpret the world.

Code: Select all

The Fool		Trace
The Magician		Euchre
The High Priestess	Raine
The Empress		Saria
The Emperor		Templar Trace
The Hierophant		The Seer's daughter
The Lovers		Keith and Natani
The Chariot		Nora
Strength		Adelaide
The Hermit		Alaric
Wheel of Fortune	Rose
Justice			Mary
The Hanged Man		Mike and Evals
Death			The Masks
Temperance		Lynn
The Devil		Evil Smoke Hallucination
The Tower		Brahn
The Star		Maeve
The Moon		Nibbly
The Sun			Flora
Judgement		Laura
The World		Lyn'knoll
I was especially intrigued by how well some of them fit in terms of both their more obvious and more subtle meanings at the same time. For example, "The Lovers", in addition to being associated with romance, also has elements of making hard choices, overcoming challenges, and even self-sacrifice, all of which themes fit 'Keith and Natani' very well. Or, how "Strength" isn't simply about physical prowess, but fortitude, courage, and mental discipline, and has connotations of feminine-aspect wisdom stabilizing and empowering masculine-aspect strength, which seem to me to really fit Adelaide well. The Evil Smoke Hallucination as "The Devil" is also a perfect fit on so many levels - it's the dark temptations in our nature, it's bondage and the possibility of being controlled by evil forces, it's fear and anger and all the negative emotions. "The Empress" is obviously a feminine card, but one strongly associated with growth and love and compassion and the power that proceeds from them, which seems to me to fit Saria and her work to try to heal the hatreds between human and keidran, but it also has a sort of ironic pairing between Saria as "The Empress" and Trace as "The Emperor" - the positive and negative aspects of that couple's influence on the world before the events of the comic. And finally, "The Sun" really fits Flora to a tee - not just in the obvious meanings of joy and vitality and optimism, but it also has connotations of rediscovering one's true self (i.e. her stabilizing influence on Trace) and the primordial goodness and beauty of life. It's neat how universal these sorts of themes are in human nature and the stories we craft.
