It’s a new year and we begin a new chapter — Chapter 10 Chasing Embers. In this chapter, Vivienne moves into the main cast. She becomes a force to be reckoned with in our story as she steers the course of events in Sherbourg. However, before we get to her, we have some unfinished business with Blaise and Snow-by-Night. See a preview of what they’re up to when you vote for Snow by Night on Top Web Comics.
One thing I’ve learned about my artist Julie. She loves symbolism and she really packed it into this shot of Jassart and Cienan in the library. Vivienne’s gesture epitomizes her feelings toward the pretty commoner boy, while Jassart smiles at her with his eyes closed. Read into that what you will. Vivienne is higher than Jassart but only because she’s on a ladder. She is noble, after all. She has to sit down to reach Jassart. There’s a few other things that Julie tucked away in there. I’ll leave you to find them. Some of them won’t be apparent until later in the story.
Speaking of symbolism and literary constructs, I hope you enjoyed the foreshadowing in Winter Fantasy. A lot of Blaise’s tale is hinted at in there. And gosh, golly, guess who the artist is for that vignette.
