Keyword here is “often”. I do appreciate a good nonviolent solution, but I just didn’t think this one was particularly interesting. Everything seemed to be set up for a fight against Purity to happen, even if it did ultimately end in a peaceful outcome. It’s true it would be incredibly difficult, but that’s the kind of […]
Yeah, makes sense. Although I don’t think we actually know whether Taylor actually seeing Night through her bugs would count, because she didn’t try that (unless I misinterpreted something). What Taylor was doing with her bugs was a separate sense that seems more akin to proprioception, the sense of where your body parts are relative to […]
Oooh, that makes everything about Night’s power even more clever than it already was. She is the monster that strikes when no one is looking and leaves no trace (although that last part might’ve been Fog’s doing).
Ohh, right. Well, at least she’s not a Dallon, then. There’s still a chance Photon Mom’s part of the family has a different surname, which could be Russel, and if she does belong to the family (biologically), it would make sense for it to be on the side associated with lasers. That said, this is […]
Ooh, that’s a neat concept, and it makes a lot of sense.
When the Dallon family watched the second episode of Gravity Falls together, Victoria managed to mishear the famous punchline, and voiced her confusion. It became a standing joke in the family to shout BUTTER AMY’S GETTING BUTTER every single time Amy was seen using butter, a joke which Victoria and Amy tired of much more […]
Ahh, interesting! This is the kind of writer I’d tend towards becoming, but unlike me, Wildbow actually has the skill to make it work. :p
That was kinda anticlimactic. The boss encounter that half the arc was building up to boiled down to “hi we’re innocent and we know where Aster is so please don’t vaporize us or what’s left of the neighborhood okay”.
I mean, yeah, things were resolved, and we got some decent fights along the way – the fight against Night was pretty good – but even for a peaceful solution, it kinda felt too easy once they actually got to Purity.
Maybe it’s just me being too used to the pattern of each Arc having a proper boss fight (hell, even Insinuation had one, and that Arc wasn’t combat focused at all outside that one fight). I don’t know.
What I also don’t know at the moment is if the Arc proper ends here and the next chapter is an Interlude. I’m guessing we’re having a 7.11 as a wind-down and tie-up chapter. We kind of wound down a bit at the end of this chapter, but Tattle’s text doesn’t strike me as an end-of-Arc line.
Let’s take a look at the link…
Maybe it’ll give us some insight into exactly what put Coil in a less friendly mood than last time we saw him, and/or maybe have Brian and Taylor talk to each other about what happened at the mall.
See you then!
He checked my stomach, which required me to take off the top of my costume, and he prodded the bruise Cricket had left me with cold, dry fingers. Then he had me remove my mask to examine my ear. Apparently, he didn’t deem Brian’s job satisfactory, so I was sat down on a stool so he could clean it up.
Well, here we go.
This Arc contains quite a bit of medical work, huh.
He was partway through the job when my phone vibrated. I read it and heaved a sigh of relief.
Avocado c. she got what she needed. omw
