Hmm. We don't know the circumstances behind Red and Aliyu being roped into helping with Jeanne's ghost. Were they asked? Forced?
Probably just asked, because this comic doesn't do conflict, but... hmm.
If I remember right Annie asked blue to help her because blue can do illusions. Red just tagged along because she's red. And blue accepted because annie said blue will be awarded a name if she helps. It seems like this can be blamed on robot jumping into the fairly calm situation though.
I think they were told plainly what the risks were and did it for the exchange of naming Ayilu. In the case of regular people, Annie would be fine.
It's just that as fairies, especially ones that willingly looked for death to become human, they probably didn't know what death really is. It seems like Red is only just realising how losing Ayilu for real would make her feel.
So depending on how much Annie understands of fairy culture, she probably shouldn't have asked them in the first place because they don't know what's being asked of them.
I must say, bringing up the legitimate topic of Annie dragging her friends to a murderbox and hope for the best, by making the "out of touch" fairy blame her so the argument is addressed without the need to go DRAMA with the other people, is a good move, Tom
And we've yet to see Parley's hands round Annie's throat for nearly getting Smitty killed.
Annie's achieved her goal of getting Jeanne into the Ether and now everyone's going to hate her lol
I think we should unanimously agree to call ayilu John madden because it sounds far better.
in a fun twist all that red is saying in fairy culture means that they see each other as sisters and when annie suggests that they are lovers they react shocked and surprised and slightly disgusted at the idea of incest.
on the other hand all fairies are female so it makes sense that their love would be same-sex
Depends where they come from. From the sound of that bonus page about them, faes just come into being for 'jobs' like making things rust and such.
So sex and sexuality is probably completely foreign to them. They probably have no clue what the stuff down there is for.
>Someone finally calls Annie out on her bullshit
>it's Teh Penguin of Doom *holds up spork*
Wait Red is totally justified here then, Annie put Blue's life in mortal danger by taking advantage of her naivitee.
Well if anything she likely volunteered for danger.
But it could still be Annie's fault for not explaining how dangerous the ghost was.
Either that or Annie did say "This ghost can kill you, are you sure?" And being idiot fairies they went "Psssh don't sorry about it, tubby."
>Either that or Annie did say "This ghost can kill you, are you sure?" And being idiot fairies they went "Psssh don't sorry about it, tubby."
They're fairies. They probably only heard "I'll give your friend a name" and flat out ignored the rest.
I hope Red's not going to be a bitch about this. I'm all for the fairies actually learning something of value but does Annie really need to get pissed on any more?
Not that I mind some Red antic, but I just want this little confrontation to resume.
They don't seem to be unaware of just how dangerous she is and in the next page Red is just fucking about, so if she's gonna pull some shit here about how Annie risked all their lives she can fuck right off.
>>90469690 does have an interesting point though, maybe the fairies understood the risk but not what the risk actually meant.
>When a dumb fairy with zero attention span is telling you that you're a thoughtless bitch
I don't see how Red's in the right in this situation.
>Accomplish something you've been trying to do for fucking ages with the help of people who understand the risks involved
>End up doing something you've been avoiding for half your life to save someone when shit goes wrong
>The people who asked you don't even give you gratitude
She's not being sensible now, either.
>Annie, this dangerous mission to help this dangerous lady - that we not only already know is dangerous but explicitly point it out while we're there - had some danger to it!
If it turns out Red's not going to have a bitchfit then I'm fine with this but blaming Annie is pretty dumb, especially considering she wasn't even supposed to be there. If anyone's to blame it's probably Robot for jumping in, but since we still don't know why he did that it seems pretty silly to blame him, too.
It's Annie who wanted to help Jeanne for some dumb reason.
Parley, too, but Annie was the one who strongarmed everyone into helping her.
Even Parley, if you think about it, would have never helped if she hadn't been pulled into it by accident.
Of course it's all Annie's fault!
This entire thing was unnecessary. She could have just ignored her like everyone else.
In the end Jeanne didn't even remember her time as a murderghost when she moved on, so what the hell was even achieved? Nothing at all.
To top it off, time will tell if this was not actually a terrible mistake that starts a war between court and forest.
Annie took a stable situation everyone was happy with and turned it unstable by almost sacrificing two lives, just because she wanted to feel good about herself.
Her friends are stupid for helping her, too, sure, but Kat doesn't have many friends and Ayilu was basically bribed with a name.
