(its been awhile hasent it folks? anyways, do i see a sequel to this? anyways, dont mind me much...)

-Element and Samantha their heads out of the bushes and look at whats happening, they grin to each other and pop back into the bushes-(the fallowing dialogue is hushed, I.E., their whispering to each other)

Element840: oh man, did you see that?

Samantha: yeah, we missed all the action dip

Element840: NO! i mean those two "goddess's"! what are you blind?

Samantha:-slams element on the head- i was making a joke idiot! of course i saw em!

Element840: ow....-rubs head- okay, okay, but still, we gotta get back to base and report about this. -rubs hands together- oh man, do i have something brilliant in store for these magical morons...-cackles to self-

Samantha: when your done "scheming" lets find Razor and Aqua and get the hell outta here, i may not look it, but im bushed from bashing those guards heads in

Element840: right, right.....we may have lost one ribbon, but we found something even better! get ready you magical maroons...cuse, when im done with you....-laughs to self, which gets a little louder-

Samantha:-slams elements head- shut it moron! do you want to be spotted?!

Element840: ow...okay, okay....lets get going...-rubs head and walks towards the mansion-

Samantha:-fallows element, shaking her head a little-

(i apologize if this bit seems odd, like any of the others, im still relatively new to this RP, fanfiction stuff)

If she thought Nanaka had "what it took"....

We can definitely rule "great wisdom" off her goddess powers, let alone any degree of omniscience.

In fact, I get the impression that the two sisters are the theological equivalent of a pair of ditzy blondes or five-year-olds.

@Heliotroph: I wouldn't say that. Just that Taretha wanted a hero who'd focus more on bringing joy to others while Marisol believed the world needed a hero who'd be more direct and forceful.

@Lord T Hawkeye: Wow... did you think of that in your stories? (Yes, yes I saw your deviantart account.)

Reply Lord T Hawkeye, November 23rd, 2011, 5:34 pm

@Keldeo_Lover: Not really. I'm thinking more in the long term since I'm making a comic of this now.

Reply Heliotroph (Guest), November 24th, 2011, 1:22 am

@Lord T Hawkeye: Anyone who, having observing Nanaka for any length of time, could conclude she'd make a good or even effective "heroine" is severely lacking in emotional intelligence.
She was enslaving people she didn't like/desired. That is evil by nearly anyone's standard. That or an inability to understand good and evil from a human's perspective (think of the fey from Changeling). In any case it doesn't reflect well on their judgment.

@Lord T Hawkeye: Oh. OK I got it. (Oh, give my thanks to the person who drew your comic)

@Lord T Hawkeye: quite interesting but marisol wasn't quite smart too choose nanaka, being direct and forceful isn't the best way to fight something off, not to mention nanaka is quite the evil bitch, so megumi is the better choice.

Reply Lord T Hawkeye, November 25th, 2011, 6:12 pm

@Heliotroph: As Wraith said, she's passionate. Does whatever it takes to achieve her goals. Marisol thought she could channel that to make her into a strong hero. Marisol's not dumb. She just took a risk and it didn't pay off.

If you think about it, Taretha took a risk with Megumi too. While Megumi is a kind and caring person, she's also very timid and unsure of herself. While Marisol was betting on turning Nanaka's determination to good use, Taretha was banking on Megumi finding the strength within her. As we saw, Taretha was the one who's bet paid out.

Sorry, not convinced. A hero is generally someone who works for the greater good - not just himself. Again, Nanaka - even before the ribbon - seemed unambiguously selfish and self-centered. Passion as a trait is neither good nor evil, so the goddess can't be faulted for being inherently bad. However, they explicitly stated they were looking for someone who could become an effective hero. The idea that Nanaka could develop into anything heroic after being given power with no strings attached and no guidance is laughable. Not impossible, mind you, but demonstrates exceptionally poor judgment on Marisol's part - again suggesting that the goddess twins are a) VERY naive or b) have a twisted conception of morality (at least as far as most humans are concerned).

I over-analyze this stuff because ethics is a bit of a hobby of mine and I don't like morally ambiguous acts being wholly justified in story or out of story.

@Heliotroph: "I over-analyze this stuff because ethics is a bit of a hobby of mine"

Heh, then you're gonna love the stories I have to come.

I will be honest, a lot of this was cut and pasted to fit because the original version didn't have a long, ongoing story in mind so yes, the idea of Nanaka being considered for superherodom is hard to grasp but it's how I remade the story to make it fit what I have in mind for the future. You won't see more of it once we get into all new content.

I know. I read all of the Play Time chapters on your deviantart account before the webcomic was up.

And rounding out Nanaka's character a bit - making her a little more sympathetic or her motivations more complex - would have made the goddess' choice seem less...questionable.
