The new issue starts today!
*VOTE to see some of my sketches from the upcoming issue!*
* * *
Don’t forget I’ll be at CTNx November 16-18, Burbank, California!
Oh help. I cannot.. Poor Nathn!
Oh…… *lip quivers*
Just the sight of him with hands bound and head down makes me weep.
I. Have. No. Words.
Makes me wanna pray for him, but then I remember this was over 230 years ago. Darn it, I’m gonna pray anyway!
I want to hug him too. Make him feel better. Let him cry on my shoulder. I would tell him it is all right, though it is not.
I join you in prayer. *bows head*
If I could go back in time, if I wasn’t allowed to save him, then by golly I’d at least give him a freakin’ Bible. I will always fume about that. He was all alone and they couldn’t even give him that. Jerks.
I mean, I know they were pissed, but really, use your heart!
I know what you mean. I just cannot imagine what poor Nathan’s last days were. The British were quite heartles with him. Denying him a Bible, the comfort of a chaplain, and leaving his body to hang for days afterward, then throwing him into a common grave.
Surely he thought about his family and friends. Surely he thought about the life he would never live. And I wonder if he ever regretted what he had done? If he maybe had a fleeting moment of regret, perhaps that moment inspired his last words. Perhaps he believed that in death at least, he could serve the Cause. Maybe, just maybe, that is why he said, “I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country.”
I’m sure a lot of things went through his head. But faith and hope are powerful things, and he seemed to have them. Sometimes that’s all you need.
And at least at the end he had one friendly person around (Montresor). Sometimes you can’t make everything better, but at least you can be kind.
LOL! I have so done this before.
Done what? :P
Oh Nathan! Despite knowing that this has been coming, still teary.
Exactly. Ooooh why do I subject myself to this pain?
Duh, because I’ve loved that man for nearly 20 years straight now…
Nooooooo, Nathan…..why are all your covers so heartbreaking?
*cries silently in a dark corner while listening to “Ben” *
INCENTIVE CAPTION!!! SCRIPT!!!
Bea: “LIZ! It’s her fault! It’s all her fault, I swear.”
Mrs. Whalley: “How is anything Liz’s fault?”
Bea: “Because, she….she called me a looney!”
Mrs Whalley: Oh, heaven forbid “Beatrice, listen to me…Just because your friend calls you insane doesn’t mean you should cut school. Most times, you should just sleep on it and–”
Bea: “That’s what I was trying to do!”
Mrs Whalley: “Oh, really? Well in that case…..you have to stay awake all night!”
Bea: *gasp* “No!”
If THAT happened, I’d say “DOWN THOSE PILLS, BEATRICE!!!”
Hmmm… would the Doctor say this is a fixed point in time??
………TIME CAN BE REWRITTEN, DANGIT!!!! *grabs TARDIS*
I have always had the feeling this would be one of those fixed points…
OMG Yes!! Take me with you, Doctor!!!
I know what is supposed to happen, and it’s driving me insane, because I keep praying Beatrice is able to get there in time, rewrite history… Although, think of how many people might have been moved to act because of his death. Could we afford to change history? Maybe Caera is right, and this is a fixed point. …Dang it.
Screw fixed points, we’re rescuing him!
*universe explodes because of our interference*
Doctor: Nathan Hale isn’t more important than the whole universe!
All us fangirls: HE IS TO US!!!
Amen! It’s all, timey wimey… wibble wobbly… stuff.
Alas, time can’t be rewritten once you’ve read it, so either way, Nathan is doomed. :(
I haven’t read it!!!!! yet… I skipped that chapter in my history book! I can still save– Dang… This is horribly sad… Why is he so lovable?!
Because he’s Nathan freakin’ Hale! <3 :'D
Everybody calm down! Let’s say history DOES take its original tragic course, we’ll just go ahead with our back-up plan and simply CLONE Nathan from samples of his DNA. Problem solved.
Except we’d first have to FIND samples of Nathan’s DNA. Aw, crap! :(
Well we’ll have to go back in time to get DNA, so I guess we’re gonna save him anyway, while we’re at it. ;D
We can leave a fake clone in his place!!! Alright, everyone! To you time machine of choice! This is a rescue mission! *looks for the keys to the Tardis* Where did i put those keys?
Here you go….got ‘em mixed up with the Delorean keys
Ah yes, how silly of me. We should really label those. :)
I wonder if we can break more rules if we take the Delorean instead.
I’ll just try to “borrow” Bill & Ted’s phonebooth/time-machine if they still have it.
Why must you hurt me this way? *sobs in corner*
Aaaaahh!! Somebody do something!!!
Oh noes! He needs a hug. Or a lock pick.
Out of curiosity, how many issues are in this first act?
17. We’re getting close. That is the end of the third graphic novel too.
Oh geeze……if the inevitable happens to him, you’re going to KILL us with the heartbreaking art, won’t you……? </3
Well there are worse ways to die…
I would be simultaneously flattered and horrified to kill someone that way.
Death through great art……isn’t that the plot of Dorian Grey? (The Ben Barnes version of that rocks, by the way)
lol My voice teacher got Dorian Gray and Christian Grey mixed up this morning and I think I might have scared her a little about my VERY STRONG opinions on the latter. XD
Note to self, never date a man whose last name is Gray or Grey…O.o
Thinking about Dorian Gray reminds me of the 1945 film I saw as a kid…I’ve not thought about that in a long time. Quite the impression though. O.o
Maybe the 18th century Whaley family did a “Dorian Gray” and THEY’RE the version running around in the 21st century. That would explain the amazing resemblances if not the memory loss. There may be portraits of some VERY elderly people stashed away somewhere inside the Whaley mansion!
Btw, I saw that movie, too.
Hmmmmm, I think we’re on to something.
Indeed. We must consider EVERY possibility.
*can’t write cohearant comment through the tears* AAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *meltdown*
*hands over kleenex box*
Thank you…I don’t want him to leave!!!!!!!!!!
I think the expressions on display in the VI is a more or less accurate depiction of my reaction to this update.
THIS CAN NOT HAPPEN!!!!!!!
Recommendation: next time don’t leave the secret plans to the Death Star IN YOUR SHOE!
Many Nathan’s died to bring us this information….
The Massachusetts Bay Colony is no longer a concern for us. The last of that sorry fleet has been swept away.
General Howe! I should have expected to fin you holding Roger’s leash. I recognized your foul stench as soon as I was brought on board.
Does this make New York Alderaan? That doesn’t entirely fit, but…
Ah, Mr. Hale…..charming to the last. You don’t know how difficult it was signing the order to terminate your life.
(Wait….if Knowlton is Ben, and Alan is Han (carbonite = coma), and Bea is Leia (captured then rescued in a near disastrous way)……then who would Luke and Nathan be? Unless Knowlton is Yoda, in which case Nathan is Ben, but then we still need a Luke…..)
This is going places in my mind that I dint want to go to. Ideas that will make my head explode.
Freddy? John’s way too snarky, that’s for sure.
Maybe Dr. John is Luke? And Hamilton can be Lando Calrissian!
Who would be Chewbacca? That’s my question.
The tea cozies are Chewbacca!
We have a winner! Especially considering how good a rapport Freddy has with Bea. And Jack can be Chewie (somewhat gruff with a lot of hair and lovable), and Lando…..Hammy. Definitely Hammy, and don’t even bother asking for an explanation you know you don’t need.
No, the ewoks are the tea cosies
Robert Rogers should be Boba Fett because they’re both bounty hunters. This way Alan/Han can eventually knock him into the gaping mouth of the Sarlaac, where he will slowly digest for a thousand years in it’s belly! Mua-hah-hah-hah!
I REALLY don’t like Rogers right now!
I think everybody hates Robert by now. His list of people who hate him is probably longer than Santa Clause’s naughty/nice list.
That’s cool, and Howe is vader and Emperor George is King Palpatine
Emperor George and King Palpatine? XD
King George=Emperor Palpatine? Exactly what I was thinking!
But if General Howe=Vader, and Yvette Howe’s surname is NOT just a coincidence….
Darth Howe: “Yvette, I am your ancestor.”
Yvette: “No. No. That’s not true! It’s impossible!”
Darth Howe: “Okay, granted there’s not much family resemblance here, but search your feelings, You know it to be true.”
Yvette: “No, seriously. Ewww!”
Oh man, this is going to be hard to read!!! : s
It’s like “Tell me when it’s over!” But at the same time, “I have to see him through!!!” Gonna be drawn out over sooo many weeks. Everyone is going to be worrying about the whimpering noises coming from my room.
I don’t care how lame it may be, I’m gonna end up crying over an online comic, anyway. Can’t we just skip this part of history or pretend it didn’t happen? Make it an alternate universe where Nathan lives, Lora!
*helpless dramatic wail*
