Pretty evening scene, complete with the shrill sounds of someone’s demise on the city streets…
Miss Muffet has one sharp keen hearing that is proving useful in this mission. Lion-Dorothy maybe a better tracker, but sometimes it’s best to have the eyes of the young to help out of this situation and Miss Muffet fits it well.
I think it’s good that Miss Muffet has figured out a way to control herself during this. Extra bonus for her attempts at controlling her inner spider leading to a helpful clue.
I don’t know why, but it feels strange to me that we might be properly in-canon meeting this villain in a few pages, when (I think) we first saw him in a holiday page back just before the dawn of 2012.
Seros> Hee hee… “inner spider”.
And, yes, you most certainly did see the teaser a while back:) But now it’s the official story and you are probably not wrong. I’m getting the feeling like the story has dragged it’s butt for a page or two but things needed to be oriented and now it’ll pick up once more. This was actually roleplayed but was one of a few that I was not a part of so I confer with TB and take notes and try to assimilate it into prose/story that’ll mesh well with everything that has happened, is happening, and will happen:)
Also, I updated the colors/background of Miss Muffet to show a more double day effect as day slips into night and back into day, etc. Plus the low fog. I liked that effect, too:)
They* say Miss Muffet has an “inner spider” and an “outer spider”.
Her outer spider loves hugs and pretty dresses.
Her inner spider thinks of you as food, and is possibly the spawn of Ungoliant.
*”They” may not actually exist. “They” may also say that you are fictional.
And who might this mysterious “they” be? :) If you’re not referring to me… Intriguing theory!
Had to look up Ungoliant (I like Tolkien but I am not a super-fan) and, having played D&D, I’d equate Ungoliant to Lolth but perhaps less of a sense of humor on Ungoliant.
Miss Muffet does indeed appear to have two sides which as seen in every journal is difficult to balance out in one little girl’s head:)
Just sort of a wild hunch here, but it feels strange that the murders are so evenly spaced. Also, if the days are passing so quickly that only Miss Muffet even noticed, they must be passing at least 2 or 3 each second. If that’s been going on here since the mirror was broken, in this London it should be several centuries in our own future by now. Unless… time, here, is looping. That could even mean that they’re really hearing the same murder over and over… except then the locations shouldn’t be changing.
Almost like they’ve entered some sort of fantasy world… oh, wait!
Heh. You are on the edge of the answer:)
Every New Years Eve / New Years Day I’m guessing.
Still doesn’t really explain why it hasn’t moved off via sci-fi spaceships to somewhere else due to being hundreds of years in the future, like in that Star Trek episode Wolf in the Fold
