Flashback narratives are a welcome chance to play with other settings and characters...a couple of whom we'll see again, later. :) Feel free to speculate.
This page is so pretty.
I like pretty!
On your twitter you should be sure to mention "Prydain" and "Book of Three" in your update tweets so people searching for those things will be sure to find you. I would have found your marvelous work much sooner.
I try when I can, but the letter limit on twitter is hard on the brevity-challenged.
"The boy will not be trained."
That black-haired person in the last panel--is that who I think it is?
Concur with the others--lovely page.
I wouldn't have imagined him that young, though I suppose this could have been some time ago. Fflewddur looks younger in the flashback, too. And he is absolutely lovely. And of course I got fangirl chills, recognizing him.
I picture Adaon as no older than 21-22 at most in TBC, and Fflewddur is, at that point, in his early 30s, I'd guess. If we push this reminiscing back, say, 6 or 7 years, that makes Adaon about 15 at the time of Fflewddur's bardic examinations - not yet old enough to present for the exams himself but believably serving as a page or acolyte or something of that nature. It is, however, meant to be as ambiguous as the viewer desires, so while that's Adaon in my mind, it doesn't have to be for anybody who objects.
Its studies week before finals in college right now, that top right panel is an illustration of myself.
There's a lot of things I miss about college, but that's not one of them.
Oooh! If that's who I think it is, he looks wonderful. What a beautiful young man, with those far-seeing grey eyes.
Matt kept telling me he looked too feminine. Maybe I've been reading too many pretty-male manga comics, but I've always thought of him this way.
Where's his brooch?
The brooch is a betrothal gift from his fiancee. It's a little early yet for that.
And a string breaks everytime he fibs
SO well done!
