Glad to see you’re back! I don’t mind the changes you made to Cole; I think they’re for the better.
Kyri’s getting her smarts on… maybe she can upset the reboot somehow, or change the nature of the new world…?
We shall see. Thanks for stoppin’ by. 🙂
That’s wierd, issue 10 had made me believe modern Kyri (or rather Kyra i think) was a historian, not a scientist. O_o
Oh well, it’s still pretty convenient, isn’t it ? 😀
Also, we now get what’s fueling the stonecraft magic : dark matter. And my, oh my, is there a LOT of potential in there… We’re dealing with vast cosmic energies here, as dark matter is what surrounds matter throughout the universe. If he’s bending dark matter, that means the wishing machine works by forcing matter into certain states and position through the bending of the dark matter around it, rather than manipulating it directly. That’s a twist.
Geek talk aside, that leaves the door wide open for stoners with a deeper understanding of their overstone, becoming capable of doing much more that what the stones basically do. And we’ve already got a glimpse of that with Pablo’s LASER technique as well as Jon’s stone combinasion technique.
Actually, I’m a historian. Kari Thorson has always been a physicist. It’s a main point I’ve been driving since Issue 9 with Jon calling her a nerd, Kari telling Kyri (in a dream) that “numbers are all”, and most importantly Kyri at the foot of the Spire in Issue 11 questioning why the Spire is making her into a physicist. I’m very surprised that slipped by considering you know the comic better than I do most of the time. 😉
As for a physicist being convenient . . . maybe. But it is foreshadowed and most importantly, the main question is why/how the SPIRE is choosing new lives for the characters like Jon as a banker, Cole as an outcast, and Primrose as a little bitch for example. I think Kyri might have figured it out… hence the message in blood.
And yes you are right about the role of dark matter and the reality bending properties of the overstones.
The I9 dream is what slipped out of my mind. Thanks for the reminder. 😉
The only flaw there of coarse being in 30 years or so when a few of us stumble upon Endstone again on a trip down nostalgia lane only to have that good old moment of “wait, that’s not at all how dark matter actually works!”
Hence the inherent danger of trying to explain or justify how your advanced plot-altering technology works. That being said, dark matter is probably a safe enough one to use given that the internet’s successor will likely have been adopted by the time we actually learn much about the stuff. Until then, though: Question not the affairs of writers.
End of Line
Hopefully we are still human in 30 years and have not merged with our cell phones into a new form of life.
Hack the planet Kyri! Hack the planet!
She already made her daughter not-fat in a comic-wide retcon after just 20 seconds of playing with the machine. What else is she gonna do to the continuity?!
I bet he says that every time he takes over the world. Or, whatever it is you kids call it now-a-days…
Somebody got it. 😉
