Jakkal's notes: Leaving this one public so I can get a feel for this. I don't think there are any spoilers in it. Please let me know what you think.

-Lorelei's Thoughts: Great. I wake up from one nightmare and hop right back into another... the nightmare of m' life anyway. At least Dane is there fer me... even if I'm still pissed at him...

I can't afford ta be pissed at him now. I need his help. And the way I am I... I fear he'll dump me on the street. I feel so useless. Is my body all he was interested in? How the hell can I trust him?

And is this some kinda retribution fer changin' him inta a dog? ... Hope he dun give me dogfood like I did him.

Will I get outta this as easily as he did? No, fuck no. It never works that way fer me.

-Dane's Thoughts: Lorelei is such a dreamer. She's always got her head in the clouds, and far too often I fear her feet aren't firmly on the ground. .. Be it two or four feet... When she's not daydreaming of a better life, she's working to make hers worse... or destroying the lives of others. Is she attracting this? Why does it always pick on /her/?

Maybe there is something to that... artstream or whatever she's got.

I can see why her family dumped her, those few years ago. She's too headstrong. She refuses to listen to reason, and then can barely tolerate the consequences of her actions.

Damnit, Lore. Why won't you just listen to reason?

...

And now I don't have the heart to tell you the reality of the situation.

...

The only comfort I have is knowing of your immortality. ...

I don't want to lose you... again.

I find that a bit touching.

Especially the second part.

You may be on to something here, though the attitutes represented in internal monologues like these aren't going to substantially change from page to page in the comic. They would certainly give some insight into where characters currently stand in the estimations of your other characters. Those for Lorelei-Issac and Lorelei-Tristan are bound to be a hit.

It must be sheerest hell living a life where you can't solve your problems through application of force.

Thank the Lord for railguns and missiles, I don't know what I'd do without my heavy artillery.

Diplomacy perhaps? You can strip a persons mind from his skull with the correct application of words. Best of all, your enemy is alive through it, he's aware he's beaten, and you can do it to him again and again.
Plain death is so terminal and not nearly as much fun.


I like this "see into the head of the chracters". Probably because I'm a sucker for character development. I'm curious and I like to find out what makes people tick (and sometimes go boom, mentally, but that's another story).
To me this adds depth to both the characters and the world.
In a way, it also enhance, put in starker contrast, the tragedies and joys of the chracters when we see not only their actions but also their thoughts in more detail like this.

Heheh. Boom. I like things going boom.
