I hope by now we’ve all established that the Emperor does not like Caris.
Last post I got a lot of “grammar ftw” type comments, thank you all for being such astute readers! Actually there are no errors so far in the comic, all the bad language is entirely the Emperor’s fault. Santri, the major language in the comic (aka English), is his third language. Basori (his primary language) has an entirely different syntax and grammar and pronunciation etc etc. He has an accent too, obviously you can’t tell from looking at pictures. Rest assured, I reread the script many many times before putting it in the comic, everything from the length of the sentences to the vocabulary gets taken into consideration. If I’m going to make a text mistake it will probably be in spelling something wrong… like believe/ relieve, I always get those vowels mixed up. Again, I appreciate all of your close readings :3
The dude in the painting is the Emperor’s late (very late) father, Sadar. I could get into a paragraph about Pasori naming conventions but I will resist. I’ll be posting some more about him in the TWC voting thing this week, as well as some big panels!
Comic is now being updated on Sundays, more on that here. This will change back to 2x a week after the end of my second semester in May!
Pimp of the week goes to Raine Dog, by DC Simpson. She is also the mind behind Ozy and Millie as well, which I enjoyed for years and is one of the most nicely-written comics I’ve ever read. Go take a look!
