Does it haunt Goliath that he could kill Lexington so easily for being a traitor in FUTURE TENSE when he couldn't do the same to Demona in a similier situation?
(I know that he knows now that it was all just a Puck created illusion that he disposed of, but at the time he really thought it was Lexington.)
I'm not sure he was conscious of a desire or intent to kill. (Which is not the same as denying he had one.) Technically, I think we're talking voluntary manslaughter.
But to answer your question, I think that Goliath -- being a straightforward guy, with enough real tragedy on his plate -- would not be too inclined to dwell on actions that he was driven to by a fantasy world perversly designed to drive him to absolute despair.
I once asked "Now that Renard knows the truth about Anastasia, has it changed anything in terms of his feelings for her" to which you replied "What exactly does he know?"
So he doesn't know that Anastasia is Titania? Why not? I mean, why would Xanatos and Fox keep him in the dark about that if they already informed him about Oberon?
Wasn't he curious as to why Oberon was after Alex?
This question gave me a headache. It's full of assumptions. I didn't say he didn't know that Anastasia is Titania. But is that the same thing as your initial question?
Precision. Precision. Precision.
But cutting through my obfuscation, I think that Renard will go to his grave loving Anastasia. Titania means nothing to him. That doesn't mean he doesn't know.
I have to admit I have not understood the death-god thing and the events of 'Grief' in their entirety.
1. While Anubis was captured, was noone able to die in the whole world, or only around Egypt?
2. If the former, how come, since there are other death-gods than Anubis? Were they also powerless while Anubis was captive?
3. If Anubis had remained captive, or even more so if Jackal had remained his avatar, how would the other death-gods have reacted to the situation?
1. Whole world.
2. Powerless, no. But the spell put DEATH itself in stasis. Leading to...
3. I think you would have seen something cataclysmic from the other Death-Gods. Can you picture Odin, for example, just sitting back?
Thank God, Avalon sent our four heroes to Giza.
A short question once again on the topic of the New Olympians... You said that they are the offspring of humans and members of the Third race - but the other such halflings we've seen (Fox, Alex and almost certainly Merlin) are human-looking. Am I correct in assuming that the appearance of each of the original non-human looking NOs was such because of their fay parent's appearance (at the time of the conception)?
Yeah, either that, or you had some of the children mating with some non-sentients.
Hey, it happens...
Has the norse mythological Ragnarok occurred in the Gargoyles Universe? That Odin is still around would make one think that it hasn't, but one can never be sure that the rumours of his death weren't an exaggeration... (sorry for the cliche!) If it has occurred which other norse deities, supposedly dead, could still be around?
A Ragnarok occurred. But not necessarily THE Ragnarok.
And you didn't really think I'd publish a list of surviving Asgardians did you?
And no, we're not starting another contest... YET.
There has been a thought concerning the character you named "Naught" that this is actually a pun on your behalf (Since Naught means nothing) and that you meant you didn't actually have plans concerning him. I'm asking you just to be sure: Did you have plans for "Naught" or was he supposed to be just a random fay with no real importance?
And was his strange clothing (modern suit, very old fashioned cape) deliberate?
All things are true.
It has been noticed by the residents of the S8 comment room that the gender of Ariel in Shakespeare's 'The Tempest' only appears as 'he' in a stage direction and is not referred at all within the main text itself. When you included Ariel, what would his/her gender be?
For that matter, may we assume that Shakespeare was inaccurate in portraying Prospero as abandoning his magic?
Ariel's gender... Don't feel like revealing that now. Sorry.
Shakespeare wasn't wrong. But Prospero found reason to start again.
1. I'm a bit confused about the Gathering. It seems to me that Oberon just wants to see his children after 1001 years of exile. So how long do they all stay there? What do they do (activites to keep them occupied, I mean)? How do they live together? I'm sure there are others like Banshee and Odin who fight constantly. How does Oberon maintain order between all these powerful fey?
1a. Which brings me to my next question: Do fey need sleep? Or food, for that matter?
2. Did the fey all make their home on Avalon before their exile? (that is, did they make their homes in the real world after or before the exile?)
2a. Will the fey go back to their homes in the real world after the Gathering? I find it hard to believe that all of these magical beings would stay on one relatively small island.
Thanks for answering all our questions,
1. How long? Until Oberon decides to restore freedom of movement.
What do they do? I'm sure there's a lot of gaming of all kinds. Contests, competitions: athletic, mental, magical, etc. A lot of parties. Much fornication.
I'm sure there's a lot of fighting, both organized and otherwise, but Oberon has the Sisters to help him maintain order. Plus Titania, himself and quite a few other policing agents.
1a. Sleep & dreams -- yes. But not as much as you or I.
Food -- Well, every living thing needs fuel of some kind.
2. Many maintained multiple residences.
2a. Avalon is as big as it needs to be, I think. But I think that there would be a lot more back and forth if Oberon weren't insisting on banishments and Gatherings.
Hello there, Greg--was wondering two things.
First-- How did the Childern of Oberon come into existance?
Second--Why did Golith tell Elisa that Thailog was his son in the ep "Double Jeapordy". Did he do it out of concern for him or guilt?
1. Incubated magic. Evolution. God. CHOOSE YOUR POISON.
Sorry, as per the new rules, you'll have to resubmit question #2. I hope you do. (Though if you watch the episode again, you won't need to.)
What would Oberon and Titania's son and daughter (thanks for providing that tidbit by the way!) feel about their half-siblings, Fox and Merlin? Indifference, annoyance, affection?
Aris, I luv ya guy, but you ask HUGE questions as if they can be answered with a single word like "Indifference".
How does A relate to B?
How does A relate to Fox?
How does A relate to Merlin?
How does B relate to Fox?
How does B relate to Merlin?
And that assumes that A & B even know about Fox and Merlin. That A & B are even among the living?
When questions are that huge, I tend to give no useful information at all.
Maybe you've noticed.
