Starbolts #558: Trouble at the Temple

 Hail!

    Wow! This week we learn a bit more about Cece’s backstory. I should really add some of this to the official timeline page. I will do so in time. The events of the comic’s flashback took place over a few centuries. Lucien’s death occurred some time in the late 1800s in Rhode Island. Ahh, Lucien. The guy is a bit of a jerk isn’t he? You could say he got swift justice for what he did. However, we will see next week that this wizard was no ordinary douchey mage. Nope. He instituted some policies for the Order of Korun that greatly irked Stan Whitefox when he came around. How? You’ll see!

    Stan is definitely not going to be pleased to hear that the council is persecuting void witches. Sara and Crystal, like the other metahuman Starbolts, already faced persecution from just having special powers. The Department of Metahuman Affairs was created to combat those who would harm someone just because they had superpowers. Most of the world has greatly accepted people with metahuman gifts by now and yet now the magic community seeks to undo some of the strides made in that area. So, yeah. Stan is gonna be MAD

    More on this next time. It’s never a dull moment with this team is there? It should be noted that the guardsmen at the temple have this sort of Visionaries/Captain Power thing going on. Ironically enough both series were from 1987 and I had toys from both franchises. I have no idea what I was thinking. I just thought it looked cool and it fits somehow!

Starbolts #557: Calling the Order

Hail! 

    When the Order of Korun has to call in an eccentric old wizard, you know they are scared. Granted he is the leader and most wisest of all Jedi   wizards in the Order. He’s still pretty eccentric and perhaps doesn’t know how to read a room. I get the feeling he probably will be disappointed by Crystal and Sara’s “scrolls”. The twins and everyone else will give the old guy a break. He’s over nine hundred years old and he’s wearing 3-D glasses for some reason. I haven’t figured out why and it’s not really a plot point. Sam and I just thought he should look like the 10th Doctor, David Tennant.

    For his personality, I was thinking of going with an even more eccentric Dumbledore. It seemed the best way to go. I was thinking Gandalf. But, I couldn’t really get that personality down so this eccentric old guy came about. 

    It looks like Adelphus has some history with Cece. We’ll probably delve into that as time goes by. Right now we have two void witches who need to be “evaluated”.

    I also included a bit about Jack as I needed to have some closure for that arc. He DID kill Emil and he felt bad about it. That just means he feels guilt and remorse. Given time he should be fine. He proved that despite everything he isn’t a monster and that’s what separates him from Emil Tartakoff.

Anyway, we’ll be back with more comics soon! Do stay tuned because we’re heading to this Jedi temple the Order calls home. See ya next time!

Starbolts #556: Taking a Breath

Hail!

    You’ve got to love the daddy/daughter moment this week. Last week’s comic was more about Crystal and what she has been going through with her spells and everything. When compared to Sara, it seems that Crystal is more her mother’s daughter. She seeks solace with those around her even though her trauma was more external. Sara on the other hand is more introspective like her father. She internalizes everything and sometimes she needs a little coaxing to let all of it out. Yeah. Sara’s definitely a “daddy’s girl”.

    Still, this was a great talk and it’s probably a good idea to have her wait on the training since she has a baby on the way and she still has to contend with everything else in her life. Crystal is very much the same way because like her, she just found out she was a Whitefox all along and a void witch. Both ladies have a lot to process and are going to deal with it in different ways.

    Now Jack is back and it looks like the Order of Korun wants to speak with Sara and Crystal. What could they want? Tune in next week and find out!

See ya then!

Starbolts #555: Like Mother, Like Daughter

Hail!

    There’s a whole lot of naked this week isn’t there? Yeah, I figured I’d address it right out of the gate rather than avoid talking about it. At least certain bits have censor bars or blurs on the characters. I couldn’t decide on the best option for Marcus so I went with a bar. A blur doesn’t really work when it’s a small sprite like these. Anyway, it is clear that the two definitely had sex. This week I wanted to show another side of their relationship and show that Crystal will eventually be okay. She’s been in therapy for a long time and given enough time she will be fine as she’s with the man she loves.

    Marcus loves Crystal and will help her get past the hurdles she has to deal with. Who better to help her than a runner, right? She knows that there’s no easy fix to her problems. But, at least she has a man who will help her out no matter what. Talking about the issues she has to contend with like the dreams help. Any other man would have been like “You’re dreaming about another dude?! BYE!” Not Marcus. They get each other. Even he has certain issues and they work through them together. Perhaps she can help him jump a few of his own hurdles. 

    What I didn’t include in this week’s comic was a bit about how not only did the spells not like Marcus touching her. They worked to dampen the pleasure center in Crystal’s brain. I’m not sure if it will be revealed to Crystal or not. She and Marcus clearly had sex before and had a more pleasurable experience this time around. She will connect the dots, I am sure. The spells messed her up quite a bit given how they were conjured during emotional distress. Now than that’s not an issue, she’s finally free to become the woman she was meant to be and that’s all she ever wanted. She wants to be confident like her mother and her twin sister. Letting go of the past and dealing with her trauma is a way to do that. Since she’s now in control of her magic, she can work on being confident without spells getting in the way.

    Now we turn to Andrea and her story. She too had dreams and nightmares. She dreamt of having a daughter and instead got two beautiful girls. When they were lost, she had nightmares until Crystal and Sara were revealed to be her biological children all this time. If things went according to plan, Elaine would have carried the twins to term. Sadly things didn’t go by the book. But, at least things worked out and her dream did eventually come true. The story she told Crystal resonates with her because of her own backstory. With her true history known and confidence gained, she is about to become a force to be reckoned with!

  That’s all for this week. Tune in next time for Sara’s talk with her dad! That’s going to be fun!

See ya then!

Starbolts #554: Spelling Trouble

Hail!

    Well, it’s safe to assume what Marcus and Crystal are off doing. They’re clearly going to do their taxes. Seriously. Yeah, they’re not. This comic marks a turning point in the life of Crystal Whitefox like many other comics I’ve written. This time she is a new woman with renewed confidence in what she wants and who she wants. I’ll try to explain.

    When Crystal’s spells were first created, they constantly prevented her from experiencing what she wanted to experience with Marcus or any man she truly loved. In a way they were acting like Zarantha since she hated her need for intimacy. Even though the two lovers clearly have had sex before, the spells were always “on” and thus prevented her from feeling the closeness associated with sexual intimacy. Those days are obviously over and now she can be with a man she trusts and obviously loves her just as much as she loves him.

    This week we also learn how her invisibility was activated. She actually managed to keep it a secret for three years as it was activated in school when she was thirteen. Of course this was no ordinary school. This school was part of the “Truman Show”-like world Terra Nova created for Crystal. Her classmates were basically the children of Terra Nova agents and chances are “Ms. Waters” was also a Terra Nova plant. Poor kid. It’s obvious she was a Terra Nova plant.

    That’s not all! We’ve also revealed how Cody met Crystal. However, there is much more to the story than just the “coming out party”. We’ll be revealing that sooner or later. Now we know that Cody was MUCH older than Crystal and spent three years with her.

    So, what’s going to happen now that the spells are back to being just spells? Well, that remains to be seen. Crystal is free to live her life however she wants and is free to be with Marcus. However, this doesn’t mean her issues have been resolved. They’re still there and will be taken care of. Right now she’s on her way to being the woman she was always meant to be. ‘Nuff said.

See ya next time!
