This just raises even more questions!
Fishy 21st Feb 2014, 1:13 PM

1. Why is Solemn a flying snake in ancient egypt?
2. Does that mean he hops dimensions too?
3. ...also time travel, unless he's just really really old.
4. I don't actually have a fourth question, but I typed the number already and am to stubborn to turn back now?
Fishy 22nd Feb 2014, 3:53 AM
okay so these are questions i've been wanting to answer the entire time but had no idea how to? in the sequel thingys that no one will probably read cause they will be novel format rather than comics, i was going to answer them.

but i might as well tell you now!

1. mummy/ren didn't have any friends and pretty much just lived in the middle of the palace, cause, allergic to the sun, and junk. sun was very important, sun god ra, so he was kind of a shameful son for the Pharaoh to have. the egg that would be solemn was a gift given to him by an unknown/unnamed at this point god-creature. little snake baby friend. he called him aapep, which was a snake god an d an enemy of ra. wadjet would be a more appropriate name since wadjet is literally a snake with wings, but wadjet is a girl and solemn is not. aapep, shortens to peppi. why? friendship idk man

2. he has hopped dimensions, yes, because anny - big long face ears god guy - took him there. this is something that i have found really hard to put into nothing fits, the whole... universe thing. so there was one god, it made the universe, and then it died. when a god dies, it splits into two, and each have half the powers the previous god had. the two new gods wanted to make another universe, but one for them to live in, like a heaven-type area to gaze on the other universe. they messed up bad. they ended up creating this sort of bastard universe. imagine an egg. the yolk is this universe and the white is the proper one. the bastard universe doesn't have to obey all the rules of the proper one, and god's have a lot more power there. the two gods got into a fight, as one wanted the bastard universe destroyed and the other didn't, because it liked having amplified powers. they both died and there were 4 gods. anyway, time passes and the gods then realise that every time they mess around and try to take things between universes, big tears between the universes appear. like you've poked eggs in the yolk. and the bastard universe starts to leak out into the proper one. this isn't good, because it makes the proper one too unstable and the gods figure that it could end up ending everything for everyone, so they make strict rules about not moving things between the worlds. a lot of god's aren't happy about this, as they had fun messing around with taking people or objects between the two universes and making games.

okay so that explains the dimensions, so anny and rus brought solemn, charlie and ren's corpse over to the bastard universe for a game.

3. time travel, yeeess, okay so the bastard universe, being much smaller and bastardy than the proper one, time runs differently. it's still linear, but 1000 years in proper universe would be about 1 year in bastard universe. so the game hasn't been going that long for rus and anny, and solemn hasn't been in the bastard universe + rat islands for that long, a few years. anny and rus, after starting the game and making the contract with solemn, did have to wait a while to be able to take more people from the proper universe. all 3 were taken from different times, just when the opportunity was available for them to slip by and grab people. charlie was a mistake, but they ran with it. it did mean they had to wait a wee while to grab ren's corpse though. the first sequel novel is kinda about anny and rus being hounded down by a god who doesn't like them particularly and uses the fact that they broke this important rule as a reason to actually get them back.

4. yes.

sorry this got long and involved. thank you for reading it all i guess?

I am impressed, I thought I was going to get a "You'll just have to wait and see! winkwink." So gods divide and get weaker as they die? Making more and more universes, that are presumably also weaker? Man, you can't escape entropy.
Fishy 22nd Feb 2014, 9:04 AM
no only two universes, they stopped making them when they made the bastard one.

when they have divided and only have one power left and then die again they turn into nothing

I just know this is going to make me sad, I can feel it in the feels :c

Fishy 21st Feb 2014, 1:14 PM
we all should already know what is going to happen
CrackaWindow 21st Feb 2014, 2:59 PM
oh dang, I hadn't even thought about Mummy as a kiddo knowing Solemn. I guess, I GUESS that makes me feel a LITTLE bad for Solemn.

But he still went about everything the wrong way. The very wrong way.
Fishy 21st Feb 2014, 4:08 PM
yeah, it would be easy to blame the gods' influence over him
but at the end of the day, he agreed to it
grief is a weird thing
