|Dreamkeepers Volume 1 Awakenings Graphic Novel|
Heya first off is mace ever going to get a girl
PLOT VAULT but we can all hope.
Also, what's with Triffany's fascination with zippers? Can you redeem Kalei
points for fabulous prizes? What does Tinsel's music sound like?
Triffany is fascinated by zippers because she doesn’t understand how they work-
they’re like magic. I’ll pretend like I understand zippers utterly and this
doesn’t in any way reflect on my views. Kalei points can be redeemed for favors
of varying importance, depending on Jeneviv’s mood. Tinsel’s music sounds a
lot like contemporary radio pop.
I noticed that in the first Lilith and Namah arc, Namah doesn't really know
why she's locked away - but in the most recent one, she bursts out of the Viscount's
office shouting that she's illegitimate. I was wondering if you'd changed her
knowledge about that particular matter in the years since the first arc due
to story reasons, or if she was just bluffing.
I believe the dialogue causing the confusion is when Namah declares in arc
1, “How come I can’t go to school, too? What am I- some kind of freak!?’ She’s
being less accurate and more emotional at that point, so it‘s more of a rhetorical
question. Worded with precision it would go something like, “Why can’t I attend
school, too? Does being illegitimate make me somehow unfit to socialize?” She
might not entirely understand the particulars, or she might be ignoring them
to better enjoy her pity party- but she has a general idea of why she’s locked
up. I think fuzzy writing on my part is at fault here.
1. What was that black smudge on Tinsel's boob near the end of Volume 2? I
think it was hinted at in Volume 3 that all it did was her chest all fuzzy.
Is that true?
The black smudge is just that- a black mark on her skin. The fuzzy thing in
Volume 3 is a piece of clothing she's wearing to hide the blemish.
2. Why was she smashing up a museum to herself? I just thought it was odd that
there were actually statues of her.
She was throwing an irate tantrum. With her own beauty marred, she had a subconscious
urge to smash anything that might exceed her in that department. Including artwork
she herself had commissioned in years past.
3. Are there any new characters planned to appear?
5. Are there "older" version of the Class Brats from the prelude comic? Will
they appear in the novels?
I don't think the Class Brats are going to pop up in the graphic novels, at
least not in any significant manner.
How many volumes until all of the main cast can use their powers effectively
This one is kind of Plot Vaulty, but I can say that power use increases as
the books go forward.
Will all the main cast survive to the end.
If Paige had survived, how would the story be turning out differently?
That's an interesting one. Mace and Whip would have run away with her. With
no murder in the orphanage, it's possible the adults never would have been aware
that there was a sandman- so they might not have tried to find Mace, Whip, and
Paige. That trio would likely be hiding out somewhere, and they never would
have met Lilith and Namah. It'd be a very different chain of events.
Am I the only one who looks at Anduruna tower and worries that it's going to
get knocked over?
Can Grunn breathe underwater?
Nope. But he can swim better than you'd think.
When Scythe put one of his rings around Vox, did Vox turn off his power out
of surprise/fear of getting sliced, or does being surrounded by Scythe's rings
suppress power use?
Vox backed down to avoid getting sliced- Scythe can only suppress powers via
good old-fashioned intimidation.
Are the Troika aware of the Nightmare's ability to sense nearby Dreamkeepers
or to re-manifest after death?
No. But they know that, generally, the Nightmares do have some kind of replenishing
source, so the knowledge wouldn't necessarily be a game-changer for them.
Besides Void versus Nabonidus, are there any other inter-Nightmare conflicts?
Nightmares tend to get on each other's nerves pretty frequently, but usually
they band together to get their work accomplished. Rarely do they have incompatible
This is your fault. And Rich Burlew's, partially. So, my question is... Will
the Graphic Novel have an happy ending?
Will the prelude for Bast help make him more likeable? To me he comes across
like a mix between an arrogant jock and Bella from twilight. I find most of
the bad guys more interesting.
I'm not sure Bast is entirely a likeable character- we'll see a bit more in
Prelude, but I don't know if he's necessarily going to start earning gold stars
One: Will Paige’s Dreamkeeper power eventually be revealed? (I have some theories
about what it is and why Nabonidus wanted it)
Two: Will time travel or multiverses play any role at all in the plot? (Again,
this is related to question one.)
Nope. I'm not saying a Dreamkeeper with time travel powers is impossible, but
that's a can of worms that I don't want to mess with for the graphic novel story.
And Four: What’re the human counterparts of Wisp, Mace, Lilith, Paige, Ravat,
Wisp and Paige are based loosely on Liz, but as for the others, we just made
them up- your guess is as good as mine.
Will we know why Igrath is blind?
How did Grunn end up in the orphanage, hehehe I mean he was like the last one
I should have thought about?
2. Is mace going to revel his powers soon
4. Is nahmah going to get a love intrest is it going to be mace.
5. Why does the main baddy want mace dead so badly
Forgot to alsoask who wre maces parents
Do the main cast have any odd hobbies or secrets they keep from everyone else?
I think they would- everyone has secrets. The example that pops to mind first
is Namah's notebook. She keeps a journal on everything- she didn't have it with
her since her unceremonious Volume 1 departure from the Tower, but I think we'll
see it at some point.
What are the ages of the eldest orphans?(Vi, Bobby, Karo)
Their approximate ages in Volume 1 (5 years after the start of Prelude) Vi
is 20, Bobby 22, and Karo 24.
Who do you think is a bigger douche, Randy or the Viscount?
Randy. The Viscount is a douche only because he cares about protecting his
political office above all else. He has an external motive. The pain of others
is just a side effect. Randy is a douche because it's the only way he's learned
to give himself personal gratification. The pain of others is the point.
Why were Lilith and Namah attending a public school all the way in the outer
Can we see Mace and Whip's full student profiles?
Unfortunately I no longer have the Volume 1 PSDs, they were lost in a hard
drive failure- so what we see is what we've got.
What kind of person would ever marry Grunn?
You'll find out at some point, I'm just not sure when...
How did the girls meet their uncle Igrath if he became a fugitive in 1215,
before they were born?
Will we meet some of the other celebrities on Boore's wall of fame?
Probably not, none of them are relevant to the story. It's remotely possible
they might pop up in Prelude sometime.
Why does Tinsel hate Wisp so much?
Because Wisp is annoying, Tinsel has gotten tired of her, and most damning
of all, Nabonidus seems to approve of Wisp as much as or more than he approves
of Tinsel. Nobody outshines Tinsel, whether they know they're doing it or not.
Is everyone gonna die?
will there be a Bast Prelude with a cast of Bast Prelude Characters in Bast's
Backstory, and will the Bast Prelude have a story where Bast as a Kid grows
up in the past with a single Alcoholic Father who Abuses him, please tell me
thats the kind of Bast story your trying to work on? cause he does have somewhat
have an attitude problem, after that one school fight he had with mace in the
There is going to be a Bast Prelude, but the particulars are in the PLOT VAULT.
Will we ever find out the identities of Lilith and Namah's Mothers?
Yes. It's not terribly relevant to the graphic novels, but Prelude will reveal
it at some point.
Will the main story only take place in the city or will the five young Dreamkeepers's
adventure bring them to places outside the city?
Pack your bags.
What happened to the maid that helped look after Lilith and Namah?
Who do you consider the big bad of the series, Void or Nabonidus?
I'm still curious if I can warm you up to choose a name for the nameless snow
leo girl from the Neon Knifes.
I feel like Evzen's been given a lot of attention in the Prelude (compared
to other Prelude-only characters).
Think he's gonna crop up in the graphic novels sometime?
Which pairs of "Dreamkeepers" characters would be your favorite couple?
Mace X Namah
Lilith X Bast
Bobby X Vi
Hmm... It's hard to choose, but the color scheme of Bobby and Vi would look
Okay, I'll give the first question: Do you plan on expanding on the Alchera
Ocean in the GNS, like the Main Five having to travel via a chartered ship or
the Troika smuggling goods from port towns outside of Anduruna? In other words,
do you plan to incoporate sailing into the story?
What happened to Bills' wallet that Namah stole in the garden of the tower
in the Prelude?
You'd have to ask Namah. Bill got a new ID and a new wallet, but he'll never
see that $12 again...
Are you ever going to address how Jeneviv got taken by the Nightmares from
Are you going to take the Prelude all the way up to the start of the graphic
novels? If so I think many of us here in the fandom would REALLY like to see
Yes- and I hear that sentiment frequently. She'll be there.
WHAT IS MACES DREAM-KEEPER POWER?!?
WHEW! That's a lotta answering. I'm sorry if I missed any questions between
the time I started answering, and the time I posted this up. Thank you to everyone
for your curiosity, woodchucks aside I hope you enjoyed this as much as me!
Thank you for caring about what we're working on, I'm extremely fortunate to
have readers like you guys.
With warm regards,
