Intermission – A Life In Whispers
EDIT 12/18/17: Part 4 up, and that wraps up this story! I strongly recommend you read it as it is directly pertinent to the plot ;) Next week is Christmas, but I’m aiming to have a page for you anyways :D
EDIT 12/14/17: Part 3 up! One more part next week and then back to comic pages :)
EDIT 12/4/17: Part 2 up!
EDIT 11/27/17: Part 1 up!
Dan here, and in this chapter break we’ve got another Nightshade story!
You’ve been reading those, right? No? GASP.
There’s The Undying Voice of Julius Gordon, with little baby Thalia, Mirage, when Thalia uncovers a grand conspiracy, and Essence of Nightshade, where she trains in the secret agent arts. Seeing as she’s joining the main cast, so to speak, it’s time to tell A Life in Whispers, the story of how she comes fully into her own.
As before, this story was written by guest contributor Josh Connor, author of the webcomic Steel Salvation, with Dan providing story guidance to make it canon along with writing the archivist commentary.
Read the intro here!
Intermission: Alternate Dialogue Challenge
Alright, let’s start this holiday hiatus with a game. Kudos to Amberlight for making the above image to use!
The game is to make up the best/funniest/weirdest/whateverest alternate dialogue (and drawings/papers Lily’s holding) for this page, and post it in the comments.
I’m also open to you picking a different page from the archive and doing the same thing. The more the merrier!
And even if Nick complains, I won’t let the Pun Police lock you up, so pun away ;)
Also, last week of The Spider Forest Comic of the Week. Two more great comics from Spider Forest you should check out, but seriously, if you’re craving comics over the hiatus, check out the whole collective, lots of good stuff :)
