A fourth one that is on hiatus as I recall.

Bot34> One was the Star Wars Rebels Comic, another project (the mystery record) was the Rain of the Ghosts audio play. The third project was an unannounced tv series if I am not mistaken but it has been canceled like 2 months ago or something.

Was there a 4th project? I don't remember...

Yes; I'd considered the possibility that Demona's plans at the time depended upon the English being pushed back out of France - or at least the end of the siege of Orleans (one of Joan's biggest feats was driving the English army back from its siege of that city) - in which case, manipulating Joan to help her is plausible.

So, how is the situation with Greg W's unannounced prjoects. Rebels comic was one of them. What about others, have they been revealed yet?

<<And I don't think she'd have cared about whether the English took over France or not (beyond maybe hoping that the English and French would slaughter each other and that the Black Death would return to dispose of any survivors), so why inspire Joan or anyone else to turn the tide of the Hundred Years' War?>>

This is a creativity demon I've had for one of the things Demona might have done in the period between 1057 and 1994 (besides stealing the Medici Tablet in 1495 and retrieving the Praying Gargoyle in 1980), though I don't think it's all that probable.

Greg once mentioned that Demona might have been in France during the Joan of Arc period, and Joan's depiction in Shakespeare (the little-known "Henry VI Part One", one of his early works), combined with that, gave me an idea. In Shakespeare's play, Joan, instead of being the familiar Heaven-sent maiden, is actually a witch in league with the powers of darkness (though she claims to be sent from God to dupe the French into accepting her help) - but the demons she made a pact with abandon her in her last battle, even when she frantically offers to cut body parts off herself and give those to them - before making even more desperate offers.

Which prompted the question: what if, in the Gargoyles Universe, Demona might have given secret aid to Joan of Arc - only to then abandon her the way she'd abandoned or betrayed other human allies, and let her be captured and burnt at the stake?

I doubt that "Gargoyles" would actually do such a story, of course, as too controversial (Joan's depiction in "Henry VI Part One" is one of the main reasons why the play isn't performed too often - that and it was one of Shakespeare's beginner works, not up to his later standards). And even from an in-universe perspective, there's one problem with it: why would Demona be helping Joan to begin with? After she betrayed Macbeth, I doubt she'd ever feel a soft spot for any human again, not enough to assist one. And I don't think she'd have cared about whether the English took over France or not (beyond maybe hoping that the English and French would slaughter each other and that the Black Death would return to dispose of any survivors), so why inspire Joan or anyone else to turn the tide of the Hundred Years' War? But I still thought I'd mention that creativity demon here.

(Incidentally, I wonder if it was the Black Death which gave Demona the idea of wiping out humanity by plague - we know that her first step towards her "Hunter's Moon" scheme was in 1495, which was after the Black Death had ravaged Europe, so it's possible.)

Hope everyone stateside had a pleasant Memorial Day weekend.

Today also marks the AskGreg queue having a year's worth of questions (but with the Star Wars: Kanan comics, the Rain of the Ghosts kickstarter and no doubt finishing the AudioPlay, with at least another unannounced project in the works (and this isn't even considering all those interviews and conventions), GregW has definitely had a busy year).
