When Megan shrunk due to water pressure, was that just to cover an animation goof? It always felt so out of place.

Greg responds...

Nope, not a goof. We did it consistently in the companion comics and in the show. The depth/pressure compressed her.

I don't know why you felt it felt out of place.

And it wouldn't have been an animation goof, because script and voice recording come WAY before the animation. It was written that way, recorded that way, storyboarded that way and then animated that way. All on purpose.

Is there some sort of prejudice against animation writers by live-action producers? For example, would the producers of the Flash hire one of the Young Justice writers to write an episode? Or, would their experience working in animation not be taken seriously, or might it even be considered a strike against them?

If this prejudice against animation writers does exist, I have to say I don't understand it. I mean... do you really have to be a genius to write an episode of the Flash, or Blue Bloods, or the Big Bang Theory? I can understand shows like Breaking Bad or Mad Men or Game of Thrones being fussy about who they hire to write, but the simple reality is that most TV is not on that level.

Greg responds...

I don't think there are any consistent rules, and there are plenty of writers who've done animation and went on to work in live action. But, generally, yes, I think there's a prejudice against animation writers. I've certainly felt that way, anyhow, though I admit I'm biased. I tried really hard just to get my foot in the door at Arrow when it was first starting up. Couldn't even get an interview.

Hi Greg,

I'm a big fan of your works and I greatly admire your determination to always keep going. Congrats on Young Justice Season 3, by the way: power from the fans to you!

What I'm writing about is W.I.T.C.H. I have recently binged the two seasons and I've fallen. In. Love with the show! Also read your thing about Irma being gay. Not sure I agree, but hey, today anything is possible. Nerissa and Cassidy being together? Maybe ;-).

I was SO bummed that it never got a 3rd season for the other arcs (I bet it could have gone at least 4 or 5 seasons), but is it possible it could make a comeback- if not this year, than maybe next?

One main reason it was cancelled (other than some silly ratings) was because Winx Club had shown up. Now that it's ended, W.I.T.C.H. could make a comeback and gain more popularity like it did in season 1 (I read a lot of people liked both series, so they'd be happy). Also, the 10th anniversary of the comic was last year and they've started reprints of the Disney comics in the native Italy. That could help gain attention again if they start reprinting in America. Plus, I doubt Disney XD wouldn't say no to a show like that on their action and comedy airspace, especially with your work on Rebels. They could re-air the first two seasons and then unveil Season 3. I bet even the original actors would go for it (work, pay, and fun all at the same time).

So what do you think? Is it possible?

P.S. Good luck with your other projects.

Greg responds...

Ratings aren't silly. They're what pays the bills. And Winx had little to do with it. There could be a hundred Winx variations on the air, but if WITCH had strong ratings it wouldn't have mattered.

Anything is possible, but it doesn't seem likely - unless the fans PROVE that there's a market for it, as they did with Young Justice. Not sure how to do that with WITCH, however. Fans had an outlet to show their support financially on YJ. Not sure what that outlet would be on W.I.T.C.H.

But I'd love to do more, if given the opportunity.

Was Quincy Hemings comment on being on the staff of Teddy Roosevelt meant to be tongue in cheek regarding his age? I was looking at Garg-wiki and it said he was born in 1900, so he wouldn't be part of the official staff as I do not believe they would let children work for the White House unless I am missing something?

Greg responds...

They did let children work in the White House.

Was Kenneth the Third aka the Grim the heir of Kenneth the Second despite being his nephew, not being the son of the current king, and younger then Maol Chavilm? The show comics and real life are kinda of confusing regarding Scottish succession.

Greg responds...

Kenneth III was the son of Kenneth II's older brother Duff, so he was the rightful heir.

Dear Greg,

You've said recently-ish that your take on time travel is a multiverse-level hypertime-like theory most similar from what I can tell to that of Dragonball Z, where going back in time creates another universe...I have been wondering about this since the end of Invasion, because of the end of Bloodlines. I wrote a history for the original timeline that led from the death of Barry to the events at the beginning of that episode, because I figured it was simply a new timeline in the same universe, Earth-16's. Is Impulse not from Earth-16? If not, why did the timeline change in forty years, after he left?

Greg responds...

Well, I've got no familiarity at all with Dragonball Z, so I can't comment on that.

And to be clear, the rules we used in YJ are not my preferred rules of time travel. For those, see GARGOYLES.

But the YJ rules were based off the best I could manage to codify off of the DC Universe's rules.

Earth-16 had a history that Impulse thwarted. You can view his original history as Earth-16a, I suppose. Or you could just mark it up as GONE.

I think that in #3 of this question (http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/askgreg/search.php?qid=22075), Lenny was actually asking if a company would consider a recommendation *for* a more seasoned producer, not *from*. i.e. If the newbie who's idea was picked up by the company wanted Dini, Cook or Vietti to produce it, would the company consider that request or just provide their own producer? (I have a feeling I know the answer, but wanted to clarify what Lenny was asking)

Greg responds...

Ah. Yeah, I didn't get that.

I guess you could ask for whomever you wanted, but whether they can cooperate with that suggestion will depend on a load of factors, including but not limited to availability, cost, interest, studio needs, etc.

Hey Greg, I'm just wondering if you've put any thought into your twitter/social media break and if you're close to coming back. Not trying to be pushy but I sincerely enjoy your tweets.

Greg responds...

Thanks. I probably will come back at some point. But I have to admit I'm not missing it. It was a huge time suck and - at times - stressful and angrifying. Other times it was great, admittedly. But I'm not sure it's me. Ask Greg suits me much better.
