Well, hrmph- try as I might, I can't think of an excuse to subsume this in any of the existing threads... who'd'a thunk. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/wink.gif"> Not that it's a burning question (erm, distant potential pun unintentional and folded.)<P>I come to wondering<P>Why Nequii chooses to berate (hrm. too strong a word?) Irooz, specifically, of the two (Irooz, Shadowrose) equally petulant & uncooperative figures before him...<P>and in what tone (paper communicates less well than sound <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/smile.gif"> ) that "be nice" is meant... (I wonder of a sudden - a bit more in detail than I did, since I think I wasn't entirely in ignorance - Nequii's attitude towards the two and the relative merits of their claims on his friendship, their claims on his patience, among many other etc. and for examples...)<P>Since - especially since - the full backstory between Shadow, Irooz, and others has not yet been told, and for other reasons besides in my opinion, I'm expecting at least the possibility (i.e. if nothing <I>else</I> interrupts the flow *g* {where are you going with that dreadnaught, Wendy?}) of some very interesting character by-play in the next few episodes. Please pardon a befuddled, up-too-late reader's meanderings...<P>-Eric Schissel<P>(EDIT: (On considering how sheerly nit-picky and minor my question is, though I'm having fun with it anyway...) Why yes, we* <I>will</I> analyze each regular episode in an effort to scrutinize, e.g., the choice of Red #5 rather than Blue #7 in the pixel 13 cm. to the right and 15 cm. under the top left of the frame. Isn't that what posters <B>do</B> in message boards? <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"> *chuckle* )<P>* Further EDIT: Ok, at the right-now and temporary <I>moment</I> "we" seems to have a somewhat limited definitional scope, but...<P>------------------

Now it dawns on me why in an earlier thread the reference to the word-game of "Ghost" was responded to as it was...
And maybe something else too.
Has Shadowrose really <I>already</I> made the connection between Irooz's appearance (hrm- two appearances to distinguish- must be careful here- how did the amber get in Haven; how did her spirit get freed from the amber. Or was the amber <I>always</I> in Haven... since after all, Nequii was speaking with the amber in the episode where he was 'napped- and that was in Haven, since he was in his stable form, there.., I am guessing...) and Wendy's behavior... interesting.

And speaking of Gina (after passing through several more of her appearances in the archives) she seems, in my honest opinion, to be an excellent candidate (joke not intended) for a "focus" storyline at some point in the eventual-future...
this is said in full recognition of the fact that you already have your plate full-well_past_overflowing in <B>quite</B> a few senses: I deliberately mean it as a very back-burner suggestion and naught more- and yet it does occur to me after seeing those first few appearances (with a relatively narrow range of emotions suggesting- what?- personality?... and anything deeper?...) and remembering her several-times-recently-read cast page entry.<P>And, of course, the reason you gave in this forum (as to <I>why</I> she's a Dark Unicorn), which may or may not be related to the cast page information, I can only guess...<P>-Eric Schissel

I've looked at the front page in Netscape Communicator and a Mac-specific browser called iCab Preview. There are differences (the groups of left-hand buttons have spaces between them in Netscape, is the primary difference, and it takes somewhat longer to load) but I'd say it looks fine in both.

I'm going to have to... I have serious trouble actually believing Irooz <I>is</I> unintelligent, but at the moment she's neither acting particularly intelligent nor particularly wise.

Irooz has, indeed, gone through a lot, but she's not seen Shadowrose work magic since a pretty stupid, almost fatal arcane duel with the honoured Sah'togar.

A further point, and I really am wondering why this hadn't occurred to me.
Just perhaps Irooz suspects, or even firmly believes, that Shadowrose has by now gone and finished the job that he failed to complete when he killed her instead, and has killed Sah'. After all, Sah' is nowhere around; Irooz has mostly lost her shamanistic abilities; I -- erm -- rather doubt her heightened sense of smell can carry all the way to Jazar's estates; she may have, in sum, no way of knowing that Sah' is alive, and every reason for suspecting, that he is not.
She's angry enough with Shadowrose for killing her (killing her body, forcing her to transfer it to an amber prison for safekeeping)- if she does indeed think that Shadowrose has killed her brother since she died, ... (erm. <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/frown.gif"> )
That's a <I>lot</I> of knotty problems to untie...
And unspoken.

<B>Nov. 8 <I>Spoiler</I></B><P>Or, of course, the sorta pointless fight-in-the-making could end (? I hope, anyhow) -that- way, too.<P>Another briefish rambling, then:
while it's still considerably premature to be making any such speculations, I do wonder if the way is being prepared for Irooz to be made a more permanent member of the cast after all, and if the situation-at-home from the points of view of several Haveners will in due course her ear be bent her way, then. Of course, if that's the manner of it, Shadowrose may similarly see an opportunity here (tho' not with an unprejudiced audience) to tell her his view of things... (and not just about the present situation and storyarc, either...) <P>-Eric Schissel

(Nov. 8 still) Then again, an "imposed" (so to speak) peace (lacking a foundation in any desire for peace amongst the two parties directly involved) tends to have a very brief shelf life, as a rule and in my honest opinion. I can certainly think of things that would make it more lasting- and doubt my list would be exhaustive.

Nov 12 <B>spoiler</B> -<P>my. surprising (errrmmmm... consistent with a conjecture of mine and inconsistent with another, perhaps more than one of each, definitely very surprising...) (Though- who exactly is saying "Can't hurt her?" in the final panel- her referring to Irooz? I almost have to assume that it's Irooz exclaiming "Guardian?" etc. with surprise... and frankly unless her ability to leave her amber shell the first time was due to something completely other than the backwash of the Guardian's efforts in freeing Nequii, and was <I>completely</I> unrelated- this certainly does suggest Irooz wasn't directly freed by Sylver, anyhow (for all that she can't communicate with him)- it's something to think on.<P>As is the fact that unless I miss my guess, and probably rather more importantly, she's very much afraid of the news. Can the Guardian trap her permanently in the amber, or worse still (perhaps just kill her outright...)?<P>I wonder.<P>-Eric Schissel <P>(EDIT: Eric, Eric. Shadowrose is saying "Can <B>I</B> hurt her?" ... )<p>[This message has been edited by schissel (edited 11-12-2001).]

Hrm. So <I>if</I> Shadowrose didn't already know about Sylver...<P>(i) since Wendy was already in trouble by his lights, I'm guessing this was probably for one or both of two reasons.
1Doing something (what, only now, if now, known) to free Irooz and put Shadowrose in the shape he's in;
2Having been (earlier) a rather free source of information that became fuel for some of the more homophobic Haveners' fires and did little to relax an uncomfortable situation...<P>Of course, nothing says Shadowrose didn't know (or guess) about Sylver, just that Nequii only told him about him right now.<P>An unrelated thought. When you went on your basically Su-T-Th-Sa schedule to begin with and settled on it, you put a notice about this on your front page. Considering the likely ratio of comic regulars to forum regulars, have you considered putting a like notice of the new change in "typical schedule" on the front page now, under the circs?<P>A bit late, of course, as it's late Monday here and early Tuesday there and so you've already been through one day of it, but hope Hell Schedule is treating you well.<P>-Eric Schissel

Was going to joke about an exchange twixt Shadowrose and Irooz along the lines of "So what have <I>you</I> been up to the last few years?" but I find, I lack the words. And the knowledge (I can guess mostly, with Irooz- I don't think she's been up to much! I have no clue what Shadowrose was up to after Irooz' death, so can't answer for him there, either... his first appearance that I know of was, iirc, New Years' Eve 2000... But I'd certainly not mind hearing. Oh well, it might be a sign they were on better terms, and I can't find myself quite wishing Irooz wholly ill. Even if as werewolves go she and a certain D.A.v.U. are definitely two very different character types! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"> )

Now when I wrote that, I thought it was <A HREF="http://paladin.keenspace.com/d/20010728.html" TARGET=_blank>this</A> comic's last panel to which reference was being made, but now it's clear enough on finishing rereading the archives that Shadowrose is having a flashback...

It's Kit in the last panel, adressing Sah', since Sah's had strong barriers over Shadow's magic abilities, it ought to backlash pretty bad when those barriers are blasted open like that.<P>And trust me, I'm not planning on replying to all this at once. But at all, yes. Some time. Evil schedule. AND they guys bully me for having a pentagram, and thus, in their opinion, am satanist. Hardly.<P>

Fools they; can't say as I like fools. (Which I can't help feeling makes me a great hypocrite...)<P>Thanks for the clarification. I saw quite a few answers to quite a few of my recent and not-so-recent questions during my recent 2nd reread of the archives, though, as should now be clear, seeing answers didn't always mean recognizing an answer for one. (Even though the re-traversal included third, fourth, ++ rereads of selected portions of those archives. Enlightenment takes a very long time to hit me, apparently, when it deigns so to do... like recognizing that two other questions have very obvious answers, had I only thought to think, look, and think. *shrug*)<P>Many thanks again. And again, take your time.
With the comic as well, much as I'd like to see what follows on after the last panel of Nov. 12th - well, fans have known longer waits than a mere 4 days, you did say a possibly more or less weekly or biweekly schedule, after all (and I recently started reading a comic that relaunched after a hiatus of somewhat over one year <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif"> .)<P>-Eric Schissel

And this is turn has nothing, yes, nothing, to do with the November 4th (or following? hrm- well, maybe) episodes at all, but occurred to me while I was doing my re-traversal of the archives, and again recently... and a desire was expressed by all parties to see this thread grow (Eric surreptitiously sprinkles some plant food on it...)
(Occurred to me when Wendy was suggesting to Viron that she had resources, and wasn't "that" young...)<P>so, without further ado (right.)-
about how old is Wendy
and about what are lifespans like for humans and those of faerie blood (and those with some of each) in the OMW world, lengthwise and subdivided?<P>Just curious and not in a hurry for the answer (which by its nature would be rather involved), may it go without saying.
