David still has the floor.
Ah, now that’s is one lie that not even Pinocchio can avoid.
David was clever in this as it wasn’t a dishonest question and it was a straight-up question that only had one answer.
Also, it’s nice of David to simplify Hansel’s words. Even I sort of understood what Hansel said.
Funny how Hansel is taking on Want given his origin story of the whole gingerbread house incident.
Yeah, it made sense to send Want after the harp. Ignorance is, well, too full of himself. Want saw it and she wanted it so she went for it, knowing also that it was something David was using against them. They are interesting in the book, though briefly mentioned. Maybe I should draw them:) Still trying to come up with a good Christmas pic this year but I didn’t wanna go preachy.
They’re generally portrayed as ragged, starving, barefoot little street children. (Want is usually a sad, waifish type; while Ignorance is usually fierce/angry.) It’s kind of hard *not* to be “preachy” when depicting them considering what they represent.
I used to kind of wish that Dickens had written a story about their opposites (“Fulfillment” and “Knowledge”?) and how they were forever pursuing their counterparts and trying to bring comfort and hope to them, but could never quite seem to catch up and instead had to bring these things to their victims instead. (The problem is that it would probably descend all-too-quickly into glurge on the order of, say, “The Little Match Girl”; so perhaps best that he didn’t…)
Lawl, indeed. Damn sad story, that.
