I am wildly impressed here. Like, more so than I need to be, enough that my avatar is looking at me funny.

The fact that Mom took the shot to prove a point is great.

And then the "Nevermore" quote used in Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven" was what I felt to be a great slap in the face for Minnie.
Stufflikehearts - He is a Sith Lord. I love Blood Lord :3
Jeffffey - Blood, you look at the information someone says, look over what really happened, and reply in a way that makes them realize what they were really thinking.
Light10s - Blood Lord! Your avatars are becoming more epic. You make me feel like getting on all fours and submitting my loyalty and obedience to you.
Fievel - Numerous campaigns and conquests, countless bodies decaying after the abandonment of victorious battlefields. Such is the life of Blood Lord.
Dusk_Imp - Blood Lord is like a celebrity here. Everything he does is pure awesome. ALL HAIL BLOOD LORD
Doctress Who - Why couldn't there be a Blood Lord in every forum? It would make life so much easier.

Wow, I just saw the Poe quote as a pointless reference but now I get the clever insult. Does anyone else think that as part of Minnie's character breakdown she will stop using the poetic speech pattern, perhaps to show that she has stopped caring about the way she is precieved?

Agreed. I totally did not see that coming.

I don't know if she would or not. The Shakespearean is well rooted in her character. I seems no matter how hard things get, she always keeps it up. I have to wonder if she's even capable of talking normal.

My question is; where will things go from here? I say Most likely, we'll get to see Junior
carry Mimi to safety next.

I do hope that they will continue to follow the story line of Minnie's emotional breakdown and then maybe we would see a character introspection scene where we get a deeper look at a character's psyche and motivations. Usually in the form of a mental conversation often represented by two characters talking and sometimes involves a Q and A. I love those scenes.

I do love following Minnie. In contrast to Junior's usual schtick of humorous adventure, Minnie provides a darker emotional element to the comic.

I hope that Mandy and Minnie have more interactions in the future, they do so very rarely its a shame.

To think after all that emotional and physical pain, Mandy pretty much added insult to injury.

I find the use of Nevermore to be interestingly dual-functioning (partly because there are no letters that are recognizably capitalized). So not only is Nevermore a mere reference to Poe's writing style but also an allusion to the line in which the narrator asks if Nevermore is the Raven's name. "THE RAVEN, NEVERMORE." So it's as if the sentence refers directly to a character named Nevermore (a raven) that exists in continuity. That's probably not the case but it works that way.
I just love how people put commas, in places they so obviously, do not belong.

I don't know about you, but I love the Young Justice animated series.

There is also the fact that Raven exists (or existed) in this time continuity. We know she knew Mimi, who is to say that she did not know Minnie as well at some point? Given what Mandy seems to have wanted out of Minnie, it would not surprise me if she would have hired Raven at some point to give Minnie lessons in something or other Maybe how to dealt with/counter demons, since she is half demon herself (Mandy may have had plans involving Him's domain for a LONG time)
No evidence she did, but no evidence she didn't either

How unexpected, and yet not surprising at the same time. I guess this means Mandy doesn't mind Minnie's feelings for Junior. This will only push Minnie beyond passive-aggressiveness to more drastic measures.

Can't wait.

Score one for Bleed. He caught all of us with this one, so it seems.

I actually like it better this way. Whether Minnie's hesitation was from not wanting to hurt Jr., or from actually caring even a little about Mimi, it shows that her compassion has not completely left her. In a way, she's more Human than her mother.

Heart under the floorboards- beats for- Lenore- Nevermooore~

Mandy's talented. Shooting a rope out from that distance while wearing those pointed heels. Shows good balance. XD

I get that she's trying to motivate her daughter and all, but, I wonder if she realizes how batshit crazy Minnie could go over this.

Or maybe she knows that she isn't that far over the edge yet and still has humanity.

Or maybe she doesn't care.

Shit.

Unless it shows Minnie sulking and maybe flashbacking something (I called that she would be brooding! XD) I think it'll just go back to Junior and Mimi next. Landing safely. And- omg Blords what's wrong with your avatar!?

Maybe she knows how stable her own daughter is? She raised her, after all... along with an English nanny of course.

I'm sure she'll become stronger because of this... but to mention something is that she WASN'T going to shoot her brother. But Mandy did, so she's intentionally causing a sibling rivalry, not to mention if she failed, Mimi would have gone splat and caused a diplomatic crisis within the hells.

Though, maybe she also understands Junior's limitations as well? Maybe she's trying to make them stronger by sicking them both at each others' throats?

I think she knows what her kids are capable of, but I think she is trying to teach her daughter not to hesitate and go after what you want. The feeling I get at the end, besides a slap in the face for using a quote from The Raven, is Mandy warning her daughter that unless she acts, she is going to be in her brother's shadow and won't escape it. This is still a royal family and there can be only one heir.

I'm not sure about causing sibling rivalry though.

I think he's saying the face is priceless. I think he's agreeing with you.

I would agree too, he looks very... awkward.

It's really interesting how this story is progressing. In our first arc, we see Junior resenting Minnie's power and charisma, and now, the coin is flipped and Minnie becomes the one left behind.

Indeed, and it's pretty ironic paradoxical that Junion who is to be the grim reaper is so cheerful when his beautiful and dazzling (half?)sister is so melancholy/anguished.

Welcome to the forums Tony, though I must establish that color text is usually very frowned upon, especially when it emcompasses the entirety of your post. I see you already have an avatar, so I think you'll fit right in. Just keep the text to a minimum and enjoy your stay!
