so no answers for me, just more questions
Lol. Sorry. This is diving headfirst well within spoiler territory. I’m lucky I could even be indirectly talking about this shit and not getting in trouble for it.
You have to also remember that the Council aren’t part of the main cast but Trevor is. And the story is the story of the main characters and how they percieve the world around them. The more pressing issue currently is the fact that Trevor doesn’t fully trust these people. It wasn’t obvious by his actions at the time but he told the humans to appeal to these guys because they have enough authority to actually help them. That doesn’t mean he thinks they’ll do it entirely out of goodwill though and thinks about that due to his previous experiences with the government. He gave them a warning on what to look out for and who not to piss off but it looked like an arbitrary, flowery, bullshit statement then. I wanted to make it clear that the characters did understand the message at some point though and it changed their interaction with one person once they noticed what was up.
The idea of the hiatus isn’t just to introduce new ideas but also to look at old ideas that are going to be focused on when it ends, and this is one of them. And not all of them will get answers but they’ll definitely be put on the table for examination. I purposely call back to specific pages not to sound cool, but because they’re relevant ideas that you guys might want to look at again. Think of it as more of a refresher than a straight up plot in a way. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen these quotes mentioned.
Hunh…It’s odd to think of Solstice as the man behind the man given her initial introduction but…
Poke-hair seems apathetic.
Phylo doesn’t seem good for politico stuff.
Kevin is Kevin (Useless, or close to it.)
Solstice…Well, she’s the one to watch. Which makes her meek nature all the better for camouflage.
“And suddenly things are starting to fall into place…”
Fun all around! Anyone remember that time? You know? When Trevor told them very specific things about The Council? That warning that Trevor gave about the Council wasn’t arbitrary at all… I’m sorry, Morris. You don’t deserve the paranoia but people like you do tend to over think a lot of things from time to time. Maybe you’re just tired. I know I am.
Another fun fact: a writer buddy of mine who started reading recently actually mentioned how Nick is rather dimwitted in the comic. He said that Nick doesn’t really seem to be intelligent at all according to what he’s read. Like he’s learning new information but he’s not piecing it together into a coherent idea/thought and thus he’s easily confused by everything. (His words. Not mine. Take it as you will.) Whelp, I guess I weirdly have just made him more intelligent than 500+ pages of main plot? Take that, ?
Nick, on the flip-side, is actually being rather sensible! He seemed to have caught on rather quickly to just shut up, smile and nod in acknowledgement… and not because Solstice is a cute girl. Good job. He deserves a cookie.
I did spy previously in the comments that someone didn’t see how any of this was terrible politically. Allow me to explain: the point of a Council in the first place is that it’s a GROUP OF PEOPLE who come together to CONSULT ONE ANOTHER and make decisions. The fact that ONE person (Solstice) is speaking for the ENTIRE COUNCIL and offering the backing of the ENTIRE COUNCIL to someone on their own without consulting anyone else? If that isn’t shady as fuck, I don’t know what is.
