Am I forgiven for the April Fools thing now?

Look, Brai got a makeover. Sorry about going Ben Templesmith on the theatre-monster. Kinda ironic in hindsight. (Ugh, Henry. You’re such a damsel in distress.)

This part was the hardest to plot, believe it or not. It was all Ravencroft and Jonathan’s fault. I noticed those two are slightly sinister and would be prone to agree with each other. So their dialogue exchange went through a couple of edits. When Ravencroft offered Jonathan freedom in exchange for his help, I was like “Hey! Jonathan would totally dig that! Henry’s doomed!” So I relied on Jonathan’s sense of honour to pull him on Henry’s side in the end. Apologies to ~Musashi-Twist if I pulled a few strings. And to *Persnicketese for Ravencroft's spike in villainy.

Also, this was done in early March, but I had an idea for an April Fool’s joke around the same time, so I kept this underground until then. I can draw better than this, I promise. I won’t suck so hard at backgrounds next time either. Maybe. *twiddles thumbs*

As always, if you find a typo let me know.

Oh, someone is going to have their glasses taken off and punched in the face.

Do not apologize for his spike in villainy, I take full responsibility. I (perhaps stupidly) did not fully disclose all the details to you all until late, mostly because I wanted to see where you all would run with it. He did come off as quite the villain, so I can totally understand.

This is absolutely wonderful from the art to the story and the characterization. Can't wait to see the next one, but no rush! It's totally worth the wait. <3 Thank you so much.

Well, if we didn't make Ravencroft out to be a villain, we wouldn't have this magnificent finale now would we? He makes a rather fun villain to write (I had a lot of fun writing him at least).

Besides, having a "Final Boss" seems to be a trend with OCTs. Law of Talos had Lilith and her zombie robot army, Ebon Spire had Fractal and the Spire, Endzone had Big Bad and Dr. Crooked, Burning Avalon had The Curse of the Ninth Symphony... the list goes on. I'm sure if Ravencroft wasn't a villain, one would have appeared somehow in some form for Aeonian Arcana no matter how big the divergence from the character.

Still, it's entertaining to think about who else might have been the Big Bad Guy for Aeonian Arcana if it weren't Ravencroft. Jonathan seems like he'd be an obvious choice, but the other contestants being villains seems to be an interesting thought to entertain. And I have to admit, the thought of Evil Mecha Whale imbued with the Power of the Dark Theatre is a thought I find most excellent.

Very true. He was supposed to be the villain. Though it's always interesting to see people's different takes on him.

And Evil Mecha Whale kind of scares me.

I think Evil Mecha Whale sounds like a fantastic idea for a picture. I might be tempted to try and draw it...
Persnicketese Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2011
I wonder if he'd have a mustache.
Musashi-Twist Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Perhaps a goatee, because a goatee means you are evil.
Persnicketese Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2011
Yessss. That would be extra awesome.
Musashi-Twist Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Indeed... but we must not discriminate against other facial hair types.

Mecha Whale with a fu man chu would also be pretty awesome.

Even so, I’ll try to make Ravencroft redeemable later. Maybe. *coughs*
