I think one point Mandy's life lesson here was...

If you hesitate, it creates regret, if you don't it creates consequences, and a life filled with regrets isn't rewarding as a life filled with consequences.

or something along those lines. I'm saving this shit, I feel awesome for thinking of that.

Hmm... a rivalry between the Grim and the Mandy.

Hmm... a war within a hellverse.

Hmm... Mandy wants Minnie to sext her brother. :thumb:

Do you know what sexting means? It's short for "Sex texting," sending texts talking about [take a guess]. Now, I know what you meant. Just wanted to make sure you knew what the word you were using meant.

I've already mentioned this in a previous thread, but GT's recent pages don't really bring up anything interesting to talk about anymore.

@Tenshi
I copied that phrase on to a post-it-note and stuck it on my alarm clock. Now I'm going to wake up to Rock Radio Station and see that first thing in the morning as a pick-me-up to start my day. So yeah, you should feel awesome.

You weren't "ignored". It's just your post was so awesome, it left everyone speechless.

I agree with you on that. Everything that that interests me in GT, has been pushed off to the side, and I'm not even sure when we'll get back to it.

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.

Maybe she'll have a conversation with Nergal Jr. I'm kinda expecting her to do something irrational and plot turning do to this. If I had to guess, I'd say in the next page, we'll go back to Junior and Mimi flying through the air and/or coming to a landing.

I don't know. I can see where you're coming from, but if she's going to take this lesson to heart, she's gonna stop being so passive and "cold."

She's going to need to be red-hot! On the aggressive, ready to tear shit up and make a lot of hard and potentially bad choices. I bet we are going to be seeing a much meaner minnie from now on if this lesson is to have any meaning.

I completely agree that this event will somehow effect her negatively, and may end up making some sort of very rash, and potentially poor choice because of it. I just now remembered about the demon powers that Mandy removed from Mimi (I can't remember what is was called at the moment). It reacted with Minnie's negative emotions before, I have to wonder what will happen now that she's even more upset.

No doubt the current page will be referenced again in a future one. But the advice that Mandy gave seems too practical to be traumatizing. Besides, I think Minnie knows her mother well enough that she can be a bitch when she needs to be.

It's likely that Minnie will be the same as she always is. Though it must be eating her inside, that once upon a time she used to be the one being praised by everyone and now she's just standing in Jr's shadow. Or perhaps she is his shadow.

Hmm. Interesting to remember. She did once give her life (and power) to save Junior's, after all.

Now it seems like she sees her selflessness and life saving being repayed with resentment and... well, being ignored. Or in the case of her mother, disappointment. I can see her maintaining a cool until anything even remotely relating to this comes up in conversation and she just unloads on Junior.

She doesn't seem to have a solid foot in the powers section of the story anymore. Grim, Mandy, Mimi, Junior, Him and pretty much everyone else BUT her is super powerful and important. She needs to find herself.

That'd be a good direction to take the comic in.

Just a Minnie arc of her going on a quest or something to find out who she is.

It could be that Minnie's role is the ever vital and classic trope of 'Damsel in Distress'.

She's too important a character to lose, and in a sense, is also the main protagonist's greatest motivator. I have a great feeling that their roles in the first arc will be reversed. And soon, Minnie will now be sitting in the villain's lap as Jr swoops in to rescue her.

Giving her too much power negates this plot tool though. If I were writing the story, I'd likely never give her any at all.

Well, her story is indeed a tragic one. Even when she was the one "Swooping in" to save Junior, she still managed to get herself torn to shreds while Junior had his power unleashed.

The more I think about it, the more I find it hard to imagine how much more fucked Minnie could have possibly been.

She denied going to heaven for this!

She could be getting closer and closer to the breaking point. Maybe Mandy's lecture could be what pushes her over the edge?

I kinda like the thought of this. My question is where would she go? Would she traverse the underworld, going to the other realms, or even make a trip to the world of the living?

I really feel like the story is pushing for Minnie to be taken over by Mimi's essence. It may even happen by the end of this chapter (or would that feel rushed?) I guess if that was how this chapter ended it might be alright. I think Minnie was the damsel in distress enough near the end of the Halloween town ark. What she needs now is to be become more prevalent, driving the plot forward with her actions.

I was just thinking that. Awhile back, someone brought that up as a possible outcome. The fact that the essence reacted to Minnie's anger the first time around, could possibly be an implication of this.

If that happened, I wonder if it would allow Minnie to assume a less... "undead" appearance (no stitches, magic replacement eye, etc.).
