    Default El Goonish ShIVe: Damn It, Dan, Stop Teasing Us!

    For the new readers, El Goonish Shive is a long-running plot-and-character-driven action-dramedy with elements of teen life, magical kung fu, gender-switching and all-around silly stuff happening. The art has also undergone a massive improvement since the beginning, so don't be too off put by the dramatic difference in quality at the start. It also shifts between "grey-scale" and colour.

    Right now, Immortals granting weapon-grade magic to teens and awkward mall dates! Simultaneously!

    You've also not linked to the immediately previous thread. All of the preceding can be fixed in an edit.

    So what are the odds of Sarah learning that Mr. Raven is "Box's" son.

    Formerly known as "Herpestidae."

    If she knows Raven is an elf, and that elves are the children of immortals/fairies, she should be able to make a good guess.

    Even if she were told that some guy named "Adrian Raven" was Pandoria's son, I don't think it would mean anything to her. Does Sarah even know Adrian exists? I suppose it's possible Grace might have mentioned him, or maybe Ellen, but even then I'm not sure how much Sarah would pay attention to talk of teachers at another school, so I'm not sure she would remember his name.

    I have forgotten tons of things about EGS so I could easily be wrong, but I don't think Grace talked about hunting the huge boar much. She didn't even tell Tedd at first. I don't think any of the kids were aware of Adrian's battle with the wizard, so Sara wouldn't have heard of that. Those are the only things that I can think of that the main kids were involved with and that also may have revealed that Adrian was an elf. That's why I don't think any of them would say anything about him to Sarah, other than possibly mentioning that he's a history teacher.

    If Sarah finds out there is a teacher at the other school who is Pandoria's son, I'm sure she will mention it to some of the students who go there, though.

    Justin might not know. He is kept out of the loop a lot, due to Nanase having a stady girlfriend and Elliot being, well, Elliot, leaving Susan as the only one that talks to him regularly, and from what we've seen, they tend to mostly roleplay and talk about boys.

    Not saying it's the case, mind you, just that if he doesn't know, it wouldn't surprise me.

    So yeah, Sarah knows about Raven and put together that Box was his mother on her own.

    Since the next part of the story is "Fairy Great Godmother" per the commentary, I'm assuming that next part is gonna focus Tedd and Pandora, since Pandora is what used to be called a fairy and is Tedd's Godfather's Mother.

    I appreciate this current arc a lot, as it starts resolving some mysteries at long last. I bet Dan is also enjoying being able to get some information out now.

    Anyone think that Grace and/or Edward are going to come down and complicate the scene because they were awoken by the sound of Tedd yelling a swear?

    If so, my guess is that it will probably be Grace. I think any confrontation between Tedd and Edward will be just them by themselves, and probably not until the sub plot with Noriko starts picking up.

    I did think the gauntlet would only work for Tedd, but less because "Tedd is a technowizard 21st century Seer" and more because no one else needs it. As for the battle gauntlet, that would be hilarious to give to someone like Elliot or Nanase if it would work for them.

    This sort of reminds me of my minor rant that I wish the "Enchanting' gauntlet was a left handed gauntlet. That way the right handed Battle Gauntlet could be outfitted to power watches, with the enchantment allowing Tedd to alter on the fly. Basically making him have nigh unlimited potential at his literal fingertips.

    I think that he's Awakened. His dad said that wizards "learn other people's spells after they awaken." Pandora just said that Tedd has already been learning and using spells. That makes it sound as if he is Awakened, even though Tedd's situation doesn't exactly match his father's description.

    If you go by what Tedd said here and ignore his father, one could assume that Awakening for wizards is all about gaining their own spells. (Tedd said that some gain their own spells, but others don't; that could have been due to only some being Awakened.) I don't think that's the case, though.

    I am assuming that Pandora didn't screw up and incorrectly assume that Tedd made the glove (rather than Uryuoms doing it or something like that).

    Am I the only one who wants Tedd to copy Elliot's Cheerledra Spell of Ananse's Guardian Form and build a watch/gauntlet/whatever that replicates it for his own use.

    Since, at the end of the double date, he said he was going too fight with the others at the next big things?

    I think what would be hilarious is if Tedd gets to through throw Voltaire through a wall. Especially if done in a style similar to Edward vs. Abraham. For the other arcs, it's been Elliot, Grace, and Nanasae who have been the heavy hitters. Let's see what Tedd can do with that gauntlet.

    Seconded. However, I have to point out a few things - you used "through" twice, and immortals have the incorporeal subtype, so they can't be damaged by being propelled through a wall.

    Immortals are capable of interacting by touch, though, so their incorporeality isn't always on. If Voltaire decides to be corporeal for whatever reason and then doesn't react fast enough to change that before impact, throwing him into a wall might actually be able to hurt him.

    Can i talk about some stupid Shipping Thoughts.

    I was a Grace-Tedd-Sarah-Shipper until recently, but now Grace-Elliot-Ted-Ashley appeals more to me. Propably because of the new Ship Teases between Tedd and Elliot. Grace would propably be okay with it and Ashley is basically some sort of uholy Fusion of the other three, so she could get along with them.

    But maybe i can still fit Sarah in there... and let Susan watch.

    And Ellen thinks Tedd is cute, and Elliot might be somewhere in the Bi-spectrum and one form likes Justin, and then Sarah's maybe date with Sam goes well, and Nanase gets bitten by the "twin-fetish" bug and Diane, Rhoda, and catlina get involved somehow, and Noah, and it all ends with at least a dozen Tedds of various sexes and body types making out in the basement.

    Could it be, that EGS has the largest semi-plausible OTX-Pairing? Other Candidates would be Sense8 and mybe Justice League and Avengers.
