morglea asked: Oooh. Jona sounds interesting! The whole story, really. How old is she? What are some of her favorite childhood memories? What about least favorite?
Glad you think so! She’s definitely going to be a challenge to write, but one I’m excited for.
Jona is fifteen by the time she shows up. As far as memories go, she has a lot of generally positive ones associated with her community, but ones that stick out would be the first time she kissed her Betrothed (similar to a fiancee) and learning she would be apprenticed to an ironworker (kind of a big deal).
There are two qualifiers for least favorite, and they both have to do with one of the downsides of her faith: her father is the community’s executioner. As a reincarnation-based faith, they believe that when someone commits an irredeemable sin, the only option is to send them to the next life and hope they learn.
So Option A for Worst Memory is the first time she saw her father execute someone, when she was seven.
And Option B is the first time she saw a ghost afterwards, directly contradicting the faith she’d kept for fourteen years.
Anonymous asked: I want to see The Professor jump a canyon in a stolen volvo. Will that be in the webcomic?
It happens considerably before the actual story begins, so if it shows up, it’ll be in a flashback. However, there are quite a few of those, so anything is possible!
Anonymous asked: Did Annie ever untie that one kids hands from the train tracks?
Ehhh, she tied him up with plain old fabric. If he can’t weasel his way out of that, that’s a personal problem.
Anonymous asked: So what kind of music do they like Like is annie a rock gal and ginger a classical guy or. ?
Annie likes a fine blend of classic rock (think Tom Petty, the Eagles, Johnny Cash, the Rolling Stones) and acoustic guitar. Rodrigo y Gabriela albums are her kryptonite in the best way.
The Professor will tell you that he considers Vivaldi to be superior to Mozart for most occasions, that Beethoven’s 7th was his finest, and that if the greater masters are not available, Miles Davis and John Coltrane are an acceptable alternative.
What he won’t tell you is that when he gets really wasted he can do a great rendition of Total Eclipse of the Heart, and other assorted 80s Power Ballads.
Anonymous asked: WHAT DO ANNIE AND GINGER SMELL LIKE
Lots of things! Annie sometimes smells like cigarettes, frequently smells sweaty, and never really stopped smelling like dust. She has no One Shampoo/Soap To Rule Them All so any perfume-y business is strictly from hotel toiletries and varies as such.
Ginger smells like a dude who pays to keep his laundry pristine, washes religiously, and worships at the shrine of Old Spice and Straight Razors for an hour on the daily. (He’s kind of a priss like that.) He also has a little bit of old leather smell going on from his coat and his books.
Anonymous asked: What happens when Annie does get cornered?
Same thing that happens when you back any scared animal into a corner. It gets out or it dies trying. Annie’s knack for collateral damage is comparable to the Battle of the Bulge.
Anonymous asked: Worst memory?
That honestly depends on when you ask Annie that. There are some strong contenders, but one very clear winner. All of ‘em are spoilery as hell, though. :]
