You said that the Gargoyles living in the year 2158 are barley tolarated and evils like the Illuminati society and he Quarrymen would still be around. For example the Klu Klux Klan is still around today but KKK attacks on visible minorities is extremly rare or almost never happen. would Quarrymen attacks on Gargoyles be rare or common in 2158?
Before Gillecomgain's murder of Findlaech in 1020, had he carried out other assassinations with human (as opposed to gargoyle) victims? I ask this because of Findlaech's line, "You are the Hunter... but who sent you to hunt me?", which suggests that the Hunter had gained a reputation for that sort of thing.
Bodhe's son (Gruoch's brother) MacBodhe died somewhere in there. But I don't have my references here at home, so I can't remember when in the chronology MacBodhe's murder occured.
But perhaps it explains a little bit about Bodhe's behaviour.
I was thinking recently about Demona and the Canmores/Hunters, and it dawned on me that it's a lot like the Montagues and Caputlets of 'Romeo and Juliet'. Both involve two 'families' battling each other over a past greivance, one whose cause unfortunately became lost in the past (for Gargoyles, it's some kid getting slashed in the face, and we never learn the cause in 'R&J'). In both, the drive for revenge becomes the driving force for keeping the feud going. It's kind of tragic that in both stories, something as low as vengence causes so much pain on both sides. So, was that intentional or did I just come across one of those universal themes?
Largely the universal theme thing. The obvious piece that's missing to make it truly parallel R&J is the young lovers. And I don't think that Jason & Elisa really fill those rolls, wouldn't you agree?
I was going to do a much more dead-on R&J riff in NEW OLYMPIANS with Terry Chung and Sphinx.
In your opinion, do the general public and the authorities in New York know that John Castaway is the leader of the Quarrymen? (I don't mean that he's Jon Canmore, but simply that the "John Castaway" who first appeared in New York after the events in "Hunter's Moon" and the Quarryman leader are the same person). Or does Castaway go for the same "hidden identities" in the Quarrymen as the Ku Klux Klan go for?
John Castaway represents the Quarrymen's "PUBLIC FACE", i.e. it's political arm. But because he wears a mask, no one can tie him specifically to any specific damage the Quarrymen have done.
Hi mr. Weisman,
I noticed that in Hunter's Moon 1-2-3, Jon and Robyn weren't wearing any gloves while in they were in their Hunter suit. Was that dangerous, since they are wanted criminals and the authorities could use their finger prints to track them?
Fingerprints help you identify, not track. Big airships and costumes help with that too.
What stops the Quarrymen from shooting the gargoyles during the day? They sleep outside and it would be easy for
them to shoot them with a gun in a helicopter, without stepping a foot on the castle. Do the gargoyles roost inside
now, as a consequence of the danger of being smashed?
I think whenever possible, the Quarrymen would prefer to maintain a lower profile. Blowing things up by helicopter isn't ideal when they can use a hammer.
Also, as you may recall, the castle has its own defense systems. But the issue of whether the Gargs could continue to sleep outside would have been dealt with post-"Journey".
1)Will any of the Canmores/Castaways ever take up the Hunter's mask again?
2)If yes, how long will they have it for, a night, a month?
1. Yes. Robyn in BAD GUYS.
Would John Casterway ever reconcile with his sibiling
Jason and Robin Canmore?
Ever's a long time.
I was thinking today about the Quarrymen and the Ku Klux Klan. One of my favorite quotes in "The Journey" was Goliath's "Brave words for a man who hides his face behind a hood".
We were discussing the Klan in US History today and I got really worked up and went into a rant about how if the Klan are a bunch of cowards who are too afraid to show their faces. I'm half Jewish so I take everything the Klan does personally (I would even if not). And then I thought about Goliath's quote, and it really spoke to me in that scene. It was brilliant. I applaud you for it.
Did you have these sentiments in mind when you wrote "The Journey"?
You said that the Canmore name would have died out and there would be Castaways and Monmouths,but what name would Jason Canmore, his wife and his kids,(if he had any) take?
I don't yet know whether Jason had any kids.
