Havoc wrote:As far as the bomb going off, I'm not sure how/if it would effect the spirits. It's possible that if Grim has some mastery over time, then he could negate the bombs effect for him Naga and DeeDee. Maybe Naga or DeeDee could do the same. All three of them could just teleport away when it goes off. That's all I got.
Flash Sideways:Like flashbacks and flash forwards, flash sideways intercut into episodes' main action a secondary storyline, which covered the centric characters at a different time.
This story has a pace?Blood Lord wrote:Why do we need it at this time, or at all? Would that not interfere with the pace of the story?
I agree completely. I feel like such a small detour would be detrimental to the story as a whole and mess up the whole... pacing...Blood Lord wrote:Personally, at this time, yeah. Eventually, yes, I would like a backstory on Sam. But I want a good backstory, not a few lines of text or half a greyed-out page. But with that, I want to learn how the Dark Star Council was created and organized. A mini-arc on that like GT:FO, I feel, would be more beneficial than just a quick spurge here.

This event has been going on for three years!!
Birdofterror wrote: didn't BR at one point say that Samantha's backstory would not be fleshed out? I forget the reasoning as it was so long ago, but I think I heard someone say this.
Oh, really? I don't see how it could, the way I see it the artist is merely there to capture the feeling through art- not story nor to keep pace. Yet if I'm wrong, do you care to enlighten me?Blood Lord wrote:Which is the fault of the artist, not the story.
Eh, once again, I'm not sure the reasoning behind it, but I'm almost certain it was BR who said that Sam would not get a backstory filler of her own.Blood Lord wrote:I have no idea. I don't remember him saying that, just a lot of people calling for it.
Perhaps, though that would make this entire part kind of pointless. Why debate or mull over this if they are already certain of the outcome?MQuinny1234 wrote:Perhaps the celestials already know the outcome here, through seeing the future or stepping back or existing outside of time, it's their flashback or something from their point of view.
Birdofterror wrote:First off, are you aware your image is broken, bro? Just as long as you know.

Ah, I see what you're saying, but allow me to provide a different view of the same situation.Blood Lord wrote:The time elapse of the story isn't the fault of the story, but of the artist (Bleedman) for taking so long with everything and slowing the progression of the comic. Hence why it feels like this has gone on forever when its actually going rather well when you sit back a read it.
Birdofterror wrote:The pacing is off and has been off for a while. Is it Bleedman's fault? Or the writer's?

GrimlyLoveGunner wrote:Either way, she'll get sympathy just for being such a lost soul.
GrimlyLoveGunner wrote:And I've been meaning to ask- Had BR said the RRB would appear in the next story arc? I thought someone had said something about they would have to do with things later.
Cerulean wrote:Hmm, had to look up flash sideways. This is what I found (only place that had a definition was lostpedia):
Cerulean wrote:I'm not understanding how this situation would put Grim out of a job though.
Cerulean wrote:He's supposedly there for someone who will feel "war" in their soul. And that "pull the wheat from the chaff" statement is an idiom that means "separating the valuable from the worthless". Will he be purifying someone? Is Sam unable to find peace of mind because her mind is mostly (if not completely) robotic? Will that somehow upset the laws regarding life & death?
