Did you make the right choice?

Well lets see...

One one hand you hired a manic-obsessive stalker to tutor your daughter. Now Mini speaks like she is at a Renaissance fair having a battle of rhyme with Sir William Shakespeare himself, and she has a somewhat manic-obsession for her own (albeit half) brother Jr.

Now had you sent her to school, she most likely would've became friends with the popular girls, and grown into the typical bubbly, blonde naive girl with a sickening bright smile that lights up the whole room.

...I think you made the right choice Mandy...I got a cavity just thinking about how sweet and positively ignorant she could have turned out in a public school setting. o.O

Oh god, imagine if Minnie acted like Bubbles.
How Mandy would respond to such a thing.

^^more like they would push themselves on her, you know for being the daughter of a ruler, rather than minnie being drawn towards them. still, minnie would probably try to fit in and look good to junior, so she might get a bit bubbly.

you know it makes you wonder, do the other ruler's children get sent to school? seems like besides junior, all of them are homeschooled which results in them having these types of characteristics.

Rulers of the underworld take note, if you want your heir to grow up and form healthy relationships with other children and not turn in to manic obsessive stalkers or develop an attraction to their own brother then send them to an underworld boarding school. The best choice for your little abomination.

I like how Minnie talks, thought it does take awhile to understand it. I appreciate how Old English is spoken and written because it is clean, well-educated and beautiful. But jeez, if we all talked like this in real life I think I would've fallen asleep in my classes but that last panel had me laughing my butt off lol

And yeah I had connection problems too, gave me a fright for a second
I'm not crazy, my reality is just different from yours.

If they would go to a school it would probably be one with Casper, Wendy and Hot-Stuff (I know that Casper's High School has other characters too, but I like the original three better).

Underworld boarding school. Unique and special children, drama, school, monsters and romance...now why does that sound so familiar?

I was thinking Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters.

I don't have a problem with Minnie using Elizabethan speech patterns when she has the time in which to do so. It also shows how she's changing that she's able to avoid doting on Junior now, even if that stems from her resentment toward the attention he gives Mimi. The dark text may also be an indication of how Minnie herself has become darker, falling further toward the temptations that HIM showed she had within her way back when. I predict this shall end poorly indeed for young, dead Junior.

Perhaps the Skull Soldiers are a bit like the Clone Troopers in Star Wars -- they seem the same on the outside, but each has its own little idiosyncrasy that make it so brother can tell brother apart from brother. That or I've been reading too many of the Republic Commando books recently. Kando'ce, NEK.

Hm, creating new souls or recycling old ones. Both have their pros and cons, but I don't think they ever plan explain that in the comic.

I think Minnie got more individualized attention from a tutor than she would have gotten at a school. I did wonder what kind of school she would have gone to if she wasn't home-schooled. The funniest part was when Mandy commented how Minnie doesn't need to constantly use elegant flowery language and could dumb down what she says to fewer words. I'm glad she doesn't dot on Junior anymore and is letting him reap the consequences of helping Mimi.

I feel that Minnie's way of speaking is an outlet for her emotions.

As opposed to writing dark poetry in her dieary like an angst ridden teen. If that were the alternative I would chose "Brother, where for art thou" any day. But writing poetry or keeping a diary don't seem out of character for Minnie, I hope that's one way she wasn't influenced by Helga.

I really hope Minnie wasn't affected by Helga too much. Let's not forget that Helga was a tsundere, overly attached stalker.

I don't think you could say Minnie is a tsundere but... Christ, that picture is more disturbing than your first avatar. Never liked the Hey Arnold art style. Did anyone notice the messed up texture on the castling at the center of the page?

QUICK!! FIX YOUR DOUBLE POST BEFORE THE WORLD BLOWS UP AGAIN!!!

I didn't think you said Minnie was a tsundere, I was just thinking of the ways Minnie is not like Helga. I am looking forward to the Arnold Thornberry avatar you mentioned.

Won't let me delete the post :/
I believe I was responding to Altaeus, but he seems to have deleted his post.

-.- Oh chill the fuck out.

Hmmm although I enjoy Mimi's Shakespearean language, but how she said that towards Jr. is a clear sign of jealousy.
Also, why is every bad tutor always named Helga...?
As I saw the creature, I was as white as an egg. I was so scared I might crack from fear. As the humanoid began to lunge after me, I was walking on egg shells from how scared I was. It grabbed me, took me to its station, and cracked me open. The last thing I saw were my yellow insides cooked on a pan. Human nature is as evil as a rotten egg.

I think, he believes you were serious about the double post. You don't really spend time on the other forums, so people don't know you as well as the people here.

My own thoughts, just ignore them.

Thank you but I was really talking about what he meant by there being more than one bad tutor named Helga.

I was tring to say not to overreact on the double posting thing.

Idk Helga just sounds like a name I hear a lot for evil tutors. Just the name in general sounds... evil.
