I dislike running into people that can turn invisible. Especially if they happen to be invisible at the time.
…It gets awkward.
At least she doesn’t drive an invisible car or something; imagine taking a turn on an empty street, only to get smashed by an invisible corvette.
(I think I can see Goldilocks driving a honey-colored corvette.)
I’ve actually drempt that a couple of times.
This is an interesting variation on King Arthur; not the noble hero, but a conqueror. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him framed as the “bad guy” before. That plus the shard in Merlin’s staff makes me wonder about future events.
I’m glad to see someone interested in our Arthur! Actually, you bring up a few discussions I’ve had with TB lately. Although Arthur was planning on confronting the Prince at his kingdom, he was caught off guard by Goldie’s raid of his private armory. She opened a portal and fled to Cindy’s story. Arthur gathered his knights and entered the story with the dual plan to get the sword back as soon as possible and presenting his offer to the Prince. Portraying Arthur as not a bad guy but a lawful leader intent on uniting his people is tough when he isn’t one of the “good guys” of your story. Still, it isn’t like he’s gonna kill the Prince. He did give him a choice and did tell Galahad to subdue the castle. They’re only attacking those kingdom guards who are attacking back. Subdue is exactly as it sounds. He doesn’t want to kill his subjects. He wants to be recognized as the one true king but also as an equal of his knights and not above them. Eventually, this will be more apparent but I haven’t even revealed Arthur’s face yet so I thought I had some time:) Oh well! TB will likely add more to my explanation here. One way to start is to change “Bad Guys” to “Enemies”. Enemies of the Heroes, that is. We’ve known from the start that the moral orientation of every character and the side they are on are not always stationary, nor is it clear who is after what and for what reason at first. All shall be revealed in time;)
You bring up a good point, I probably shouldn’t jump to the “bad guy” label when he has only been in the story for one page so far. XD It’s a fascinating duality, though, how the same person can be seen as a hero or a villain depending on your perspective. One person’s unifying leader is another’s usurper.
As always, can’t wait to see where it develops. :)
While we definitely do have some “Bad Guys” (The Big Bad Wolf and the Red Queen are both Definitely naughty naughty) a lot of our antagonists are in more of a gray area.
In fact, in one Christmas story I did, most of us would consider the “heroes” the bad guys hehe. What we are dealing with are ultimate goals. The ultimate goal of our shards heroes, who have gathered under Mother Goose, is to restore the Magic Mirror. Not everyone that has a shard is going to be a bad guy :), but all those Shards will eventually HAVE to be returned to the mirror in order to meet with the ultimate goal of Mother Goose. Yes this will cause strife between the heroes and their mentor at times :).
I wondered about that too, actually. Goo Gun go bye bye at some point.
