Yeah, I realize the likely issues with early on centering most of a chapter on a character not yet seen in a world and situation that won't tie into the main story. Hopefully people will enjoy in spite of that.
This is a loose adaptation of the beginnings of a story I did I think a couple of years ago, just called Moon. If anyone wants to be linked to that or whatever give the word and I'll do so, but there are some big departures in just what's seen so far and I intend for there to be far more. Mostly just reusing the same idea and what few characters that story had.
And we'll only be seeing the beginning from here. Still, I love what Abe did with the setting and the costuming and the like, particularly since it's the first time getting a real look at the world the story takes place in which is itself recurring in a number of my works.
Speaking of Abe, here are his comments -
Does this sorta remind ya of that M. Night movie "The Village," which I saw and liked but then again I am a die hard M. Night fan. He's never made a movie I didn't like. From Sixth Sense to The Last Airbender (that's right I said it, I loved the motion picture though looking back on it now I think I could watched it without the 3-D and still have been satisfied. More to the point...). It's a nice colonial setting. Another thing, reminiscence is moon sitting by the stove watching the fire burn which I do sometimes but now know that the carbon monoxide can get to you there too. It reminds me of Rogers and Hammersteins' Cinderella. There's even a song about sitting in a corner which feels right for that last panel. Unfortunately, there is no fairy godmother in this story.
Admittedly, until I saw Abe's drawings I viewed the world Moon and Mist inhabit as more of a dirt pit. Given Blues eventually visits that place waaaaay down th line, good to have that viewpoint corrected.
"In my own little corner, in my own little chair?" Huh, nice. ^^ Too bad fantasy enters her life in entirely the wrong way.
