Okay, can people answer a few questions for me? First, I was looking at the fanart and I saw some people had drawn a romantic theme between Willow and Tristram. When was that part of the story? Second, when and where can I send in fanart? And thirdly, what in the world is Revelations? Obviously, I'm new here and from reading previous comments, I came to realize that teh Lady (as everyone seems to call her) has redone the entire comic. So I want to know, basically, did I miss anything important? Or am I just going to have to be good and wait patiently for the storyline to continue as it is? Crying or Very sad

P.S. This is my first forum, so if I'm doing something wrong, please tell me.

Nice to meet you and welcome to the forum.

To answer your questions: The romantic scene between Willow and Tristram hasn't happened (yet). It's just speculation at the moment.

The instructions to send fanart to teh Lady are on this page.

And finally Revelations is the chapter that comes after Lament, many of us have read the original (which isn't online at the moment) so we know what is going to happen, and have a bad habit of blurting it out on the forum. (Don't worry, the original only goes up to Revelations so you won't get any end spoliers)

It was never explicit, but the willow/tristram pairing is one of the favourite fan pairings. Mainly (IMHO) because tristram is one of only two male characters introduced so far, and the only one (zae has a plot-explicit crush on k'thonya) who is romantically unattached.

Revelations is the name of the current chapter (as opposed to the current Redux chapter - the story is currently being re-told from first principles, and we were a little way into the Revelations chapter before the reduxing process began), and can be seen in the archives.

You missed the original version of the comic - the detail and structure of the story changed quite a lot, and the art style has greatly improved, but the basics remain the same. As TBI mentioned, the original was online, and the original archive (the link to which was provided in the print version of the comic, and if posted here, will be modded out) has recently been removed (pending alterations to the site's templates to bring the old pages in line with the new design). I'm not sure if it will return.

You're fine, apart from this post belonging in the Plot section. Where it is.

Not that i moved it there or anything.

The Lady is actually redoing everything--so while the basic plot may or may not be the same, the characters and their personalities are wildly different. So no, you're not missing anything by not having read the original. Smile

EDIT: Ninja'd! >_<

Yes, and we're getting pretty close to the point we reached before Lady got her publishing contract and decided she really had to redraw everything to publishable standards. Willow and Tristram have a long-ish conversation to do, and then we start hitting new material. Yay!

Yay! Very Happy You replied! I'm so excited, I may just spontaneously combust! But I don't think I will, to messy. Thank you all so much for explaining all these things. It makes a lot more sense now. And I agree with Tamir. What about Ulkurz?

I think a Willow/Ulkurz pairing somewhat unlikely.

...

Make that "wildly improbable." And likely to end badly.

...

Ulkurz: Willow, my sweet!

Willow: Hold me tight, darling Ulkurz! I shall never let you go.

Ulkurz: I could escape your clutches at any time by phasing away -- but I am more thoroughly entrapped by your ravishing beauty than by your grasp. What exquisite torture, to be held permanently by a beautiful woman two feet taller than myself!

Willow: Ulkurz, you must not torture yourself so over your height.

Ulkurz: My one regret is that it is so hard to gaze into your limpid violet eyes when I stand only as tall as your belly button.

Willow: We must see if we can find a staircase, or a rock for you to stand on. And perhaps a booster seat; it's hard to have a romantic candlelit dinner when I can hardly see you over your plate.

Ulkurz: No indignity is too great to suffer for such a privilege. I shall put up with a booster seat, even a step-stool if it pleases you.

Willow: Ulkurz, are you hunching over to make yourself shorter?

Ulkurz: What?

Willow: When we started this conversation you came up to my shoulders, and then of a sudden only to my belly button, but now you seem even shorter ...

Ulkurz: Oh no! Curses!!

Willow: What? Goodness, you're barely up to my hip now! Ulkurz, what is going on?

Ulkurz: It is the Flux!

Willow: The Flux?

Ulkurz: The greatest disease of my species, Kinlurt's Flux! O, cruel fate!

Willow: You're only as tall as my knees now!

Ulkurz: Forgive me, sweet, but there is no stopping it now - those of my kind who reflect too much upon their height are cursed to grow shorter, and shorter, until at last we vanish altogether ... Farewelll ...

Willow: Ulkurz! Noooooooo!

Ulkurz: Goodbyyyeee .... [vanishes in a pop of air]

Willow: What -- gone? And all my fault. Alack, that ever I grew to such a height! Better I had been a midget, and never attracted his gaze, than to have been the cause of his fore-shortened life. Poison, I am, to have been his timeless end; O churl! shrunk all, and left no friendly path to follow after? But hark, a noise - someone approacheth.

Nanashi: Ah, Willow, there you are ...

Willow: O happy blade!

Nanashi: Huh?

Willow: [grab's Nanashi's sword and stabs herself] There rust, and let me die! [dies]

Nanashi: O_O ... what the ...???

Poor Ulkurz... is it intentional that his name contains the German word for... short? Hmmm....

Okay........seriously, the romeo & juliet part made me practically roll on the floor with insane laughter. Ahhhh.....remembering 9th grade English class.....we did romeo and juliet.

(the only reason i actually remember something that far back is because of my teacher from HELL ---- Mrs. Longinott. shivers. And keep in mind- i have a TERRIBLE memory. As in, can't remember breakfast, memory.)

Anyway, if Richard hadn't been sent home, would he be a contender??

Well...that was...interesting. I'm thinking a Ulkurz/Willow pairing is a no go. Unless Lady Yates get's really desperate for a plot line (heaven forbid). Hmmm. I wonder.....
