It is funny in a way. Skywalker made a good question on one of his posts, where? Where are all the heroes? I'm not talking about those white knights, I'm talking about those who were so focused on fighting Marshmallow and the other merry bag of douches?
Did you not notice?
Well then open your eyes, where are those brave hearts who said they would kill Marshmallow? Where are they now? Fell off the radar, gone, disappeared, probably dead, somewhere in a ditch.
Where is Annalee and her geeky friend Danny? Where is our favorite scientist Med? Where did our spider, Strider go? How about Shadow? Lily is brain washed by the Unnamed Brat and probably dead. Gabby fell off the grid. What about Knight? And whatever happened to that Preaching Old Fart Father Brien? Oh and whatever happened to lil' ol' Alicia? Where did the Granny Killer Arkady go? Where is Diana? Echo is brainwashed to shit and his friend Ronald never turned up.
There are only few that remain with a passion, but they are stuck (Incognito), or horribly injured (Raggedy), or have some sort of pointless romance going on (Kenny).
And only those who ONLY want to survive for as long as they can are still on the board. The likes of Philly, JP, Minxie and so on...
And this is the delicious part, the roles of main pieces turn, the pieces are no heroes no more, the main pieces are as dark, as the owner's of this game. The likes of Skywalker, Knitty, Fracture and yours truly. Gone are the days when Heroes would sacrifice themselves against the villains, this is a new era, an era where there are no heroes, where there are only victims and predators. The days when predators will claw each others throats out for a victim.
This game has twisted in ways it was never twisted before and I have the first row seat to observe this game twist and turn, until the very day it implodes.
What a tragedy, what a beauty.
