    Default Floraverse

    So, like, a week ago, I found this hot new webcomic named Floraverse--well, its not that new, I guess, its been around two years, but its new to me! And it seems very neat, lots of the ole' world building, cool character designs, great facial expressions, a pretty diddly darn intriguing story, y'know.

    Unfortunately, I know like zero peeps who read this comic, so like, might as well see who else is into it, knowwhatI'msayin'?

    I have just read this up to chapter three and I have no idea what in the Netherhells I read there.

    Spoiler: prologue, seeds one and two
    Show
    First some guys try to open an Gateway between the universes to finally have someone to talk to. Then something wipes them out because they are not ready to know what man was not meant to know and says something about a next time.

    Next we follow a bird and a shapeshifting water-bunny on their mission to collect seeds and get them somewhere.
    After they miss the Dragons that were supposed to throw them into a whirlpool the bunny turns into a boat and they seek for a portal-thingy.
    Later the bunny seems to drain an rather unfriendly native lizard-creature of water to clean their seeds of saltwater .

    And it looks like it keeps getting weirder. I will keep reading for a bit, maybe it will start making sense.
    Despite the confusion very fun.

    Aunt Edith says: Finished the Comic so far. Still no idea what is going on and now I am absolutly confused. I have a few theories but if I try to formulate them out I'm even more confused. This is something I will keep reading. The confusion can only get better after all.

    Yeah, those guys from the prologue are like, from another universe or something?? And they're leaking into this universe?? I dunno, man. I like Min and Cress so much, I want more of them, but I also want to see the end of Itchy Itchy and whatever, ahhh.

    I think the commenters on the Comics site have the right idea. Those were humans -or close enough to them- and the angels the denizens of hell fight are their remnants that bleed into the Storys world (or is it worlds?). The world we see is the second attempt of the mysterious destroyer and there are so many different lifeforms because the first time the humans moved to fast because they were alone. That would also explain why so many can interbreed or live in some kind of symbiosis.


    I don't have a favorite character yet, they are all fun, they all have secrets and goals I want to see.
    But the commanders of the demons are especially fascinating. They all seem to have interesting powers and quirks. The entire world is like this. When I saw the entrys for the Flora/Fauna I really wanted to know how this came to be. The whole Thing is like a fever-dream without the downsides.

    Aaand the Itchy Itchy update finale!

    So Pride glosses over what the hell angels are with Median, instead saying they're 'just some nasty native wildlife' which I guess is sort of tentatively correct but still, blegh, dancing around issues! Annoyinnggggg.

    Lots of crying in this series. Biff was crying when Median almost died, Median started crying when tree-guy was gunna die--I'm not used to people crying over acquaintances, its kind of touching. I really wanna get back to Min and Cress, though. I miss those doofuses.

    just watched the entire Itchy Itchy Thing. That was disturbing. The angels remind me of Evangelion and Digimon Tamers (D-Reaper). And of course I have no idea what happened. Well no, that is not right I don't know what the things that happened mean. And how they relate to Cress and Mins Story. But then I have no idea what is happening there either. Well I will wait and see what will come out of all of this.

    I found it interesting that this Angel wasn't a bunch of mashed potatoes like the first one we saw. Maybe that one was like, a multi-angel conglomerate or something.

    Apparently we're getting more Andre in the main story, which isn't a bad thing--I actually kind of dig his design, y'know? He's art.

    I think there's going to be one more Itchy Itchy related update, which is the 'prompt' or something, and then we're back onto the main event.

    Maybe its like in Evangelion or Pacific Rim and every following iteration of „angels” get weirder and stronger/ more dangerous.
    I still wonder where they came from and why they attack hellside and the demons. Is it possible that they are both related to the first world and/or the entity that destroyed it?

    By the way Tectonic Robot, is that a Min avatar? Looks great.

    It is a Min avatar! Min is rad enough that I have decided to avatar her. Best weird flower bird fairy thing, in my opinion.

    As far as angels ago, I've kind of gotten the vibe that they're not actually trying to like... y'know, hurt anyone? From what we've seen of their race in the prologue, they just wanted to spread their knowledge. In the kickstarter the 'story thus far' implies that they devised a plan to survive the Masked God's destruction somehow, but I think that they've mostly gone completely crazy by now. Its really interesting!

    Considering that their world was wiped out by a eldritch abomination I doubt that there is much left but fragments of what they once were. That could be a reason they eat other beings, to make themselve whole again. But since they are so broken it only makes things worse. That they attack the demons could mean that there is a connection between those and the destroyer. And if they had a plan to deal with this thing it most likely failed since they seem to only consist of despair. On the other hand they seem to have dealt some damage to hell in the past if we can trust the story told in chapter 4.5. And if hell is connected to this god they could still be fighting.
    I am sorry if this is a bit chaotic but my thoughts on this are not exactly clear. I'm jumping from theory-fragment to theory-fragment there.

    It looks like we're taking a break from the main story for some community stuff!

    Well we will see what will come out of this. But I will enjoy learning more about the world(s) of Floraverse. Those Flora/Fauna hybrid lifeforms are fascinating. And the other ones as well. The whole world is pretty interesting.
