Nice touch with the breath joke 🙂
Still, that’s exactly what i meant in the comments, previous page : Cole DOES know the modern world, otherwise she would not even grasp the concept of mint fresh breath, let alone the grasp of needing to refresh breath. Western medieval folk, even the richer and royal classes, were not exactly the cleaner and better smelling folk… 🙂
For what it’s worth: I assumed that ancient folk had knowledge of mint as a digestive aid and a breath fresher. I’ve tasted mint leaves before and I can see how people in old times could use it. So here, I assumed that mint is in use, and out of all the characters prissy Cole would have knowledge of mint (and perfume too). Plus, Endstone is really set in a Post-Apocalyptic world, so knowledge and customs, like wanting to have fresh breath, might still be in use.
Again, your reaction is genuine and if you (as the audience) feel it’s not working then it isn’t. I’ve got to do something about that, I just don’t know what yet. As always, thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it. 🙂
It doesn’t bother me, but I, too, assumed it was akin to Cole’s fears of potato chips; some sort of leak-over. I could buy the hold-over, though. God knows, Certs, Scope and the like have tried to fix that in our consciousness. Also, we saw Cole in a beauty parlor getting a facial, complete with cucumbers on her eyes, as I recall, so some parts of our self-care demi-religion have clearly stuck.
They would use mint for the refreshing sensation it would give them but not for smell and hygiene. You do know of King Louis XIII’s childhood hygiene ? First made contact with water (just the feet) at the age of 6, first bath at 7. Before that, to arrange his hair, they had to use several oils to make the hair slippery. And if THAT was royalty-level luxury, imagine the more common folk…
A fresh breath was one of the more serious compliments you could make a woman in Shakespeare’s time, which, granted, is early modern. Vikings were reviled in Britain because of their habit to wash their faces everyday and comb their hair, which apparently gave them an unfair advantage with women. 😉
End of Line
We should just name you as the head wizard. You seem to want to spread your people. x3
Whoops, forgot it did that emote image thing. The “:D” is a clickable link.
Minty Fresh. With (large) traces of Sulfur, Magic and fiery death.
Happy Holidays etc to you as well. Great page to start your break with.
“Everyone, bask in the minty fresh breath of Dragon Savers brand breath mints!”
Huge problem. Whenever I do anything on this page, it sends me to an ad website. Even moving my mouse quickly. Can’t get to the next page. Help!
Never mind, seems to have fixed itself. But seriously, that’s almost beyond annoying. Is this happening to anyone else?
I haven’t noticed anything, There is no advertisement I’ve authorized beyond the ads that appear in the side columns and I certainly wouldn’t set up an ad that redirects traffic to another site. I’m guessing it might be some sort of adware or spyware on your end? What ad site does it direct you to?
I didn’t think you would have. I think it must be some sort of adware/spyware on my end like you said, because now it’s happened on another website. It will direct me to multiple sites, and one of them makes my browser give me phishing warnings. I apologize if I seemed accusatory. I’m looking into it.
No need to apologize. 🙂 I’m glad you’ve found the problem.
