finally done the story of the “virgin” mary and her immaculate conception for my sequential art final. very happy with how this came out/that it’s finished.
this is beautiful, good job!
This is actually how I said it probably happened.
THIS MADE ME START HYPERVENTILATING which is really ironic
have you ever had a game you wanted to replay but then there’s just one part that you fcking HATE and it’s just not worth it
What happen when Pepper Ann tries to buy a comic book?
Look at the date. Nineteen. Ninety. Fucking. EIGHT.
Pepper Ann knew what was up before anyone else.
This is honestly how comic book stores make me feel.
all the fandoms
all of them should reblog this
if you are a fandom blog and you dont reblog this i am judging you so hard
i feel your pain
i feel it
I knew you were trouble when you walked in…
AND NOW I’M RYAN ON THE COLD HARD GROUND.
Just some of the warnings Booker receives throughout the game.
i never understood where that note on the lighthouse door came from?? did the luteces put it there after they heard him say that to himself or was it a figment of his imagination
and who killed the guy in the lighthouse and why
An even better question is why he joined the raffle even though he was pretty explicitly warned NOT to, and even grabbed ball 77 despite the clear warning.
I am pretty eager to see the dead guy explained, though.
maybe think booker is just a dumb turd
The songbird might be listening
It is commonly believed that the note was placed on the door by the Lutece twins. According to “Barriers to Trans-Dimensional Travel”, “The mind of the subject will desperately struggle to create memories where none exist.” When Booker is first pulled through the tear, the Luteces hear him saying “Bring us the girl, wipe away the debt” and remark that he is already putting his story together. Putting the note on the door helps his mind confirm the story in his head that a man from New York has sent him there to find Elizabeth.
It is speculated that the dead body is that of the lighthouse operator. He would be in charge of who can gain access, and in past attempts may have stopped Booker from reaching Columbia. This is lent credit by then note found in the lighthouse that says “Be prepared. He’s on his way. You must stop him. -C”. It can be implied Comstock (C) wants the man to stop Booker. Instead, the Luteces kill the lighthouse operator and stage the death to look like Booker is being warned about the price of failure by “the man from New York”. His death ensures that Booker is able to reach Columbia.
Finally, the #77, from what I have heard, relates to the ideas of constants and variables in the game. Booker picks a ball out of the basket at random, and it turns out to be #77. The fact that he receives the warning from the Luteces means that he has picked this number before in his previous attempts to save Elizabeth. So, when he is warned about it and it still happens, it can be inferred that Booker picking #77 at the raffle and that number winning is a constant, not a variable. Booker always has picked it, and he always will, no matter how many times he has tried to save Elizabeth. The telegram is a way for the Luteces to experiment and test this hypothesis (like the coin flip experiment) as well as put Booker on edge so that when he picks #77 he will know something is up and be prepared to act.
Sorry that was so long winded, I hope it helped answer some of your questions!
