So here we go today.
More than a curiosities this is a clarification (I hate it when people fight over things in the comment area, people can have opposite opinion and still share the love for the same things, I believe).
What happens here? This is a very traditional technique used in old comics that was taken from movies, it's called: Cut away.
In short when you flip a page there are two possibilities: either the scene continues from the previous one or you jump in time and location.
When the second thing occur you cannot go back to the subject of the original scene so you cut to something else that could take place at the same time as what we don't scene happening on scene.
I can't remember what famous director said that: a story happens between cuts and life happens during the ellipses. :D
So what happened here, in the end is that Kane took Castalia away from the treasure room and I decided not to show it. I've decided, instead, to use the sky (a visual symbol) to show the outdoor without specifying where the outdoor was.
It's not the first time I leave you to your own induction. It's because I simply cannot stand the spoon feeding going on in contemporary storytelling: it's completely unnecessary and readers are not stupid.
Also I am all for action-reaction. I might show you the event first and the outcome later. Putting them together flattens storytelling out, it's like giving the solution before the problem starts.
Apparently not only Kane agrees but gives Pifo instructions (after getting rid of his brother, whose queer is of no use to Pifo's problem).
Which leads us back to the first scene where the doctor gives Pifo what he asked for... and what he asked for needed Kane's permission.
This page has a haiku structure. :D
As for what the doctor gave him.... my guess would be anything based on olive oil. When you read about ancient history there is always something about sex and olive oil (not to mention some types of infused olive oil where considered aphrodisiacs).
Lubricants are as old as time for Greek Love, even though it might not have been officially accepted in some ancient societies - like the Romans - (and in some occasion persecuted - but especially in cases when the behavior was not considered appropriate)... it was, in facts, just strictly regulated but part of the culture and everyday life. Most of the times overlooked. Many many times it was the main topic to excellent writing too (see Catullus).
Because a leaf has two faces and those faces are called pages.
So what Kane is trying to say is that not only we have many pages in our books... we have many leaves: there is double face to a leaf.
Like a medal has two faces. In short he is telling her that the same emotion and the same thought can have 2 faces and these to faces could be contradictory. Kane believes in opposites coexisting.
And this is it for this week, sorry to keep you waiting.
I would like to thank the people who already send me their Pirate Trinkets for the Pirate Day celebration! :D Moaaar moaaar!
