The blog won’t officially relaunch until the weekend, but I’m going to let questions build up over the next few days, so I have some material to work with. =>
Just remember that in addition to Saint Walker, you may now direct specific questions to Sister Sercy, Brother Warth, and Brother Hymn (though you’re not limited to just them. You can even ask Brother Shon a question, for example).
Have at thee! Saint Walker and company look forward to your questions. =>
themaskedman answered your question: The Status of Things
Yes! Please do! Also, you could probably attract even more fans if you play to GLTAS fans too.
Oh yes, I’m keeping an eye on the upcoming GLTAS episode ‘Blue Hope’ to see how it’ll portray the Blue Lantern Corps. If there’s anything I can use/borrow/adapt from GLTAS for this blog, I most certainly will!
Long story short, it’s dead, Jim.
…. but it’s also not dead. Lemme explain why.
ASW kind of fell off of my radar for a variety of reasons near the end of the summer, the big reason being I got employed with full-time work (and the job I had at the time, briefly, was a swing shift at a call center) and as you can see… art has generally been sporadic, and ASW somewhat ended altogether.
However, I’d like to pick it back up again and reboot it somewhere around the start of the new year. The big change, however, is that I’d like to make it Saint Walker and the Blue Lantern Corps, not just Bro’Dee himself (More or less Saint Walker would answer things by default unless a particular Blue Lantern is specified). As always, there’d be absolutely no ties to current comic continuity, or GLTAS for that matter, though certain elements would be used carte blanche depending on the circumstances.
I realize this is a huge change, especially the shift in focus concerning the title character -and the URL would probably change, too, to reflect this-, but I wanted to put this out there and see how people feel about it.
So… Y/N on the Blue Lantern Corps being included in the focus?
“Although I am still becoming acquainted with earth-made music -and I do say, your people have an incredible gift for creating it-, I do have a preference for soft, adagio music performed with a harp or any string instrument. Quanta used to play a harp back in the day, so perhaps I am a touch biased.”
“It’s the little things in life that make me laugh. A casual joke, or spending time with a good friend and having that moment where emotional defenses are let down and we can simply just _be_, and not have a care in all the world.
People get so caught up in the whirlwind of life’s stress and chaos, some lose sight of the tiny, often insignificant things that put a smile on our faces; or see them as frivolous and not worth the time. Oh, how I wish they could see what they’re missing out on!”
“The loss of a loved one is never easy, no matter if it is a peaceful death, one brought about by terminal illness, a sudden accident, or in senseless murder. We are left to wonder ‘why’. Indeed, ‘Why’ leads to many questions. Why did this have to happen, why not me instead of them, why should I continue on any longer…
When I lost my family, I wondered ‘why’. Why would a loving creator take away the family that I held so dear to me. I couldn’t find hope in those moments. Not when I watched my father fall to his death, my wife and daughter drown, or my son die from eating poisoned fruit. Hope seemed so far away with each successive death, yet it felt… close. Still, I continued on, knowing that if I gave up all hope completely, their losses would be in vain.
After becoming a Blue Lantern, it all became clear to me. I took heart knowing that I would see them all again in the next life, whenever and wherever that may be. I draw inspiration from the time I had with them. Knowing we will all be reunited someday gives me the hope to continue in the face of adversity, or in seemingly hopeless situations. It’s what drives me to to spread the Blue Light throughout the galaxy.
And for those who may not have a belief in a higher power or an afterlife, I say draw inspiration from the time you’ve spent with your loved one. Remember the good times, the love they had for you, and the strength they had during their own darkest nights. It’s in those moments, that hope always burns the brightest.”
“To answer your question, you could say I am. Where exactly, well… now that’s getting quite personal!”
“Ah. This is a tricky question, indeed. While I’m not a Star Sapphire (although my good friend, Miri, is. She briefly deputized me as a way to find a suitable answer for this question. That was… interesting), I will say this:
Hope will only become delusion if you hinge your expectations on what could be considered selfish desires at the expense of another individual. This is especially true in matters of relationships. Love, especially.
Might I suggest you instead place your hopes in the well-being of your crush. And, perhaps this is the remnants of my Deputization influencing me here, that the ‘right person’ may enter into your life soon?”
