Cupcake is good. I like Cupcake...

Brilljant dialogue here. I really like it. :)

Thanks! I'm glad you like the new name. It suits him perfectly.

I would definitely name a band, "Salamander Pixie Glitter" XD

3rd Dec 2015, 11:23 AM

Glam Rock band, for sure.

"Spiders" has the brevity of wit. "Salamander Pixie Glitter" sounds like a particularly inventive if random Mad Lib :)

Sad thing is, that doesn't even come close to the ridiculous names they gave attacks in Sailor Moon.
Jupiter Oak Evolution?
Starlight Honeymoon Therapy Kiss?
Star Gentle Uterus?!
These are levels of WTF you can't make up.

Let's begin, shall we?

Ok. All the magic June has used throughout this book has 'all' been 'dark' magic. Because the Prism only works for people possessed of dark magic 'genes'. Let me explain. The prism will not work for anyone. Only for people of the same genetic heritage across the multiverse: June's. This page tells me it is also only for 'Dark Mages'. Being a dark mage doesn't mean you are a dark/evil person. Take the pesticide DDT. Frogs were growing three legs. Dark magic is DDT. It permeates existence. It effects the 'genes' (don't know if genes is the right word) of things like DDT does. It makes certain people three legged-Dark mages. This means that the Prism is 'SENTIENT'. It will only work for dark mages. But dark mages of a certain bent. Dark mages that are good. The prism itself is opposed to dark magic/evil. Fighting fire with fire. So dark magic, like light magic, permeates existence, and mutates those it comes into contact with; creating dark mages, and light mages. This mutating is completely random: the magic itself is not sentient. The prism/people are able to tap into these forces to use them to their own ends. Like people use electricity.

So as the prism is a conduit for dark magic a person mutated by light magic (Bunny wabbit) cannot use it, and the prism wouldn't allow it. The prism is an addition to the dark mage it bonds(?) with-increasing their power. So light magic and dark magic users are in a struggle with each other. They are equal. They cannot banish the other. But employing dark magic along side the light tips the balance. The fact that a good person can be mutated by dark magic can mean only one thing. An evil person can be mutated by light magic, and use light magic for evil. If this is the case there are evil prisms of some kind out there tapping into light magic for evil mages/people.

So the familiar/shade's recruitment attempt of June is naught but the recognition of a dark magic user. It wants to be her pet. Let's say you found yourself existing one day? You just happened to be there. There is this force called dark magic. A random, non-sentient thing that created you. It doesn't know you exist, but you are simply evil because you are it. You 'are' the 'thing' dark magic. This is the monochromes. They are simply pure evil created out of a big bang of dark magic. They exist in/are this place of dark magic. So whereas magic is not sentient it has caused sentient entities to come into existence that are 'it', and are of it's power. Power of a magnitude that our June is not on par with at this stage. The shade, having observed these June's, knows their potential, and is after them. The first monochrome that was summoned into our world, and banished back, told his friends. They all learned of other worlds, and want to go there to help destroy it. They are aimless. They feel no purpose in their world of dark, and want masters. Some are disappointed to discover they've been summoned by what they thought was a kindred spirit (a dark mage) but find a good person instead. On top of that they may sense they are more powerful than their summoner (at that moment, at least, more powerful). What do to? Corrupt them. This appears to be the shade's (Ok. Cupcake's) plan to me. He simply wants a friend to help him destroy. This also dictates that, as Cupcake IS dark magic, that he is, indeed, more powerful than June-a mere conduit of dark magic. The prism will tip the balance if she can master it.

So June's now orange tint is the prism exacting it's will. June has been drafted. All the June's/Princess Chromas this prism has come into contact with are a part of this prism. potential upon potential added to the prism's power. June is the inheritor/draftee of this whether she likes it or not. So this prism will only bond to Junes. Not only because of genes, but because they are obviously, exclusively, mutated by dark magic. There's something special about the Junes in more ways than one.

As we now know that black magic "...steals light..." or as bunny wabbit put it in his inimitable style of lying to June, because he's fine with the usurping (as long as it isn't him) of her identity/personal space "steals from other forces", we now know that the world they are in now was once as vibrant a world as the one they are from. Or IS the world they are from. That it's possible they have not been transported to the belly of the Monochrome's world/into dark magic itself. The existence of Monochromes mean that worlds have been devoured. It's possible there is no going back for our little crew. That there's nothing to go back to. All they knew is dead. As the existence of the Monochrome world/dark magic equals the absolution of light (June's worlds) this is a battle not of existence, but identity. Assimilation. Colonization. One of the arachnids bunny wabbit blasted on page "Hare Trigger Temper" could have been June's mother. Junes/Princess Chromas have and can prevent this-as evidenced by bunny wabbit's world still existing. So the world our crew is in now was once as vibrant and light as the one they were in a few pages ago. Their home. They are now traipsing through the carcasses of a multitude of devoured universes that once inhabited the multiverse. Their home now possibly being added to the mix. And whose fault? Who lost control of the dark magic? Was it June or the prism?

There you have it. I accept applause, ovations and Walmart gift cards.

Zounds! It never, ever ceases to amaze me that you're actually willing to take the time to write such detailed comments! Thank you!

At this point, I think it's best if I don't answer any of this, though. Sorry. But feel free to keep theorizing away to your heart's content--just because I'm not answering doesn't mean I don't enjoy reading these comments. I simply don't want to risk spoilers.

Works for me!!!!
