Distraction and laziness seem to have gotten the better of me these past couple days, folks... Sorry about that.

I'm working on the promised post right now, though, and should have it ready to go before too much longer.

Kudos!

Sorry about that, Darth Scabby... I'll keep in mind, from here on out, that you're "on delay" where current episodes are concerned.

Topic: AMC's The Walking Dead
Subject: Well...


...I think the second of those questions was answered by the end of last night's episode. Hershel is "anxious" to see that Rick and company get on their way ASAP because he's hording walkers in his barn! (I won't go into the whys and wherefores of any of that, now - mainly because A) I'd be basing anything further I said about it on what I've read in the graphic novels (which, as we already know, diverges a bit in places from what's shown on the TV series) and B) because it's possible that not everyone is "caught up" just yet and I don't want to spill any spoilers beyond what I've already spilled.

As to question 1... I don't think there's really much explanation as to why some folks seem to have had an "easier time" surviving than others. It certainly can't come down to preparedness (because, really, who's prepared for a Zombie Apocalypse... I think most of us are more inclined to being prepared for the "real threat" of nuclear or biological cataclysms these days than the "fantastic, far fetched" possibility of the dead coming back to life and that being the cause of humanity's end. Perhaps it comes down to "perception" at some base level - the folks that have survived so far were more able to "see" and "believe" what was really happening and, as such, managed to keep a step ahead. Then again maybe it's just dumb luck.

For the record, though, the house where Morgan and Duane (the father and son you mentioned from the first season, Scabby) were holed up was not their home... Morgan and his family took refuge there while hunting for supplies/provisions/what have you after abandoning their own home... the reason they stayed behind/lingered there is because that's where the Mrs "turned" and Morgan feels the need to stay there until he can muster up the wherewithal to put one in the head of his beloved/now-undead wife.

Topic: AMC's The Walking Dead
Subject: Sort of...


...Hershel (and, to some "trickle down" extent, his family) was a very religious man in the graphic novels.

That said, though, I don't know that religion was the recurring theme so much as faith... the presentation of religious imagery and verbiage, though, is usually the most widely recognized (perhaps even accepted?) representation of faith as a concept... and faith, I imagine, is what just about any "survivor" of any cataclysmic event would have to find somewhere along the line.

Loving season 2, so far, by the way... I know I've read posts on other sites (IMDB, AMC's website, etc) that complain about how "slow" this season seems as compared to last but I'm just not seeing it. Sure, the encounters with walkers have pared down a bit but, given their location, that's not really surprising and, while the "action" is a little slower, the character development has certainly picked up, IMO.

...Jack and T_O!

I'll hold off until tomorrow to tack my next one on to the thread... give anyone else that's got something in the works at least that much time to "beat me to the punch".

And, Jack, you're correct, Meri's been a little busy what with her Momma duties and such... I'm sure she'll be catching up with us sooner or later, though.

Happy Veterans Day (or, for my Canadian friends, Remembrance Day), crew!

I'm not pushing anyone for immediate posts... that'd hardly be fair now, would it?

Looking forward to whatever gets posted whenever you get around to posting it.

It's about time we set sail again, innit?

Thanks for your patience and understanding, crew. I know it's not been easy but, trust me, it's much appreciated. As I said in my little OOC interjection in that last bit, I've got more coming but felt I should get at least that much tacked on to the game thread just to "prove" I wasn't about to let us founder.

Topic: Tales from the Smuggler's Moon
Subject: Back to the brawl ((and back into action...))


Late afternoon - The Rusty Hook, Freeport

Jericho maneuvered through the melee that had spilled across the floor of the Rusty Hook, one hand still gripping Lyri’s elbow as he went and the other left free to assist in making a path through the jostling crowd as he navigated them toward the bar. That free hand lashed out more than once to swat aside a flying tankard, intercept wildly thrown blows, or, sometimes, deliver them if a knot of bodies refused to untangle itself from the course he had plotted. At one point, as they drew near enough to the bar that Jericho could actually see Will and Maast, the arm Jericho had left free actually snaked around the copper-haired barmaid and pulled her against him in order to shield the already battered girl from a flying bottle that, in the end, smashed against his back. It was then that the captain of the Smuggler’s Moon finally took note of Lyri’s almost wild-eyed expression and he realized that she had gotten sucked into the tunnel-visioned exhilaration that often caused less-experienced combatants to miss important happenings beyond their adrenaline-narrowed scope…

“Wakey, wakey, lass,” he grinned, shrugging shards of glass from his shoulders as he peeled the girl away from his chest and regained a free hand once more, “ye’ll nae be lastin’ long ef ye only see wha’ be in front o’ ye, aye?

C’mon,” he added, “I reckon this wee escapade’s cost ye yer job an’ us our welcome tae Mester Wine’s fine establ’shment. It’d be wise ef we weren’t tae tary much longer.”

Jericho offered a quick wink in response as Lyri blinked up at him and, just that quick, they were shoving through the throng towards the Moon’s shanty singer and master gunner, once more. “Ahoy, Maast,” the captain smiled as he sidled up next to the dwarf, “I mighta knowed ye’d be showin’ up jus’ as th’ scuffle were gettin’ unner way, mate…” The smile melted from his face, though, when he caught sight of Willow’s. Blood ran in rivers from the bardess’ nose and her eyes had begun to blacken. “Yarr, fer th’ luv o’…” Jericho’s hand finally let go of Lyri’s arm and, without hesitation, went to Willow’s face. “Wha’ inna seven bloody hells’re ye doin’ standin’ ‘round, Willow-luv,” he murmured, anger and concern comingling in his eyes as they flicked between her face and the crowd that still jostled around them, “Ye shoulda been outta here th’ minute tha’ fargin’ lubber broadsided us.

Bad enough th’ bastard cost us our parlay wit’ th’ monkey,” he scowled, untying the scarf from about his brow and using it to daub the blood from the woman’s face, “but tae ‘ave this come o’ et’s well?!? Fargin’ cuttlefish son o’ a squid-humper! Ye a’right, lass?”

((Room in any of the above for interjections and such, of course… and, after a brief moment of Jericho fussing over Will… on to this…))

After having relinquished the scarf to Willow, the corsair captain’s angry eyes swept over the crowd in search of his brother. “Khash,” Jericho shouted over the ruckus, “Khash-mate! Et be time tae put this chum-bucket in our wake, lad! Where be ye, boy-o?!?!” It was in the searching for Khash that Jericho spotted the cursing Halfling soaring over and, then, disappearing back into the crowd and only an instant or two later that the wee man emerged from the tangled mess of brawlers just in front of him…


"Cap'n Hawkes?" the halfling breathed…

“Aye?” Jericho answered, arching a brow as he glanced down at Braydyn.

"Khash'll be along shortly."

“Aye,” Jericho grinned, now realizing exactly how the little fellow had managed to come to soaring over the frey like a fifty-pound cannonball, “well’n good, mate. If’n I give ye a launch back th’ way ye come, d’ye reckon ye could point ‘im tae th’ door? Tha’ be where we’re bound…”

Braydyn looked horrified at the thought and raised both hands; “No! No launch necessary, Cap’n,” he said, backing away a step, “I can find my own way.”

“Thar be a good lad,” Jericho nodded, already ushering Willow and the rest of his mates towards the exit, “ye do tha’, mate, an’ find yer own way there, too, aye? I’ll be sure tae make it worth yer trouble…”

((Got more coming for this, me hearties... nice little scene in the works for outside the bar and catching up with Bobo and Horse... but just wanted to get this much posted before the day got much later. As always, feel free to interject anything anywhere in what I've got here.))
