Any guesses as to their guardian? Their savior?
Is it a new character we’ve never met?
Or an old friend? A relative?
Find out…not tomorrow….but Monday.
Y U NO COME SOONER, MONDAY???
You are such a meany!
I’ll keep him facing me so you could get behind him.
You know, he CLAIMS these frequent weekend cliff-hangers are unintentional, but I have my doubts.
I thought someone was supposed to say “Doctor?” before the “Who.” Actually, I’m glad you didn’t go there, because that Doctor Who? joke is getting really old since they did it in every episode of the season so far. :p
The joke is getting old, but it is nice to not have him recognized everywhere anymore.
I so wish there was a “like” button here.
……..Is it Mom?
It could be Dan and Alex’s cousin Joey. He already knows about Dreamland, so the sight of Nightmare Realm beasties threatening Dan would move him to action instead of paralyzing him with shock. He might be in town for summer break, have seen Dan headed for the lake, and followed, taking his bow and arrows with him because he’s a kid, that’s what he’d do.
Whoever it was, though, that was some pretty good archery.
I like your guess. Forgot about him
Mine would have been the guardians from Serapopholis (or whatever my faulty memory should have said for the flying city)…
I agree with Maeverin. It’s mom.
Would it be too trite for Dan’s next line to be, “Mother please, I’d rather do it myself.”
Sorry I couldn’t resist. But we all know moms can keep secrets.
I like this idea. Who’s to say that Mom doesn’t know about Dreamland? She is the mother of kings, after all.
Mom? I thought the same…!
Why do I think it is the missing elfin Nobles?
That was my first thought too…
It could be Alex, but I’m hoping it’s Mom!
If it is Mom she’s been holding out on them! Whoever it is knows how to handle a bow.
I’m guessing those are Nastatia’s arrows.
Definitely not. Her unbendable bow only shoots magical glowing arrows.
That, and she’s still in Dreamland.
I thought they might be her parents’
My guess is Mom … just because it would be hilariously awesome.
Don’t let me down, Scott.
Scott, even if it is not really mom that is to good an idea not to at least do a spoof page where it IS mom. How of course chide’s her dear boy about getting grass stains on his pants.
Awww… too bad, I would have liked it, if the two of them got abducted…
Same here. Alas, I suppose there will be time for that later(Maybe please.)
Not seeing it. Either that’s the best bow in the world, or the arrow couldn’t have gone through that far……. Epic!!!
Good dreamlanders also stuck on earth?
…oh, that’s an arrow head in panel 2. Silly me for thinking the monster decided to spit on Dan.
I thought it was spit to begin with, as well lol
I doubt it is the cousin. He would not have the arm strength to do that just yet. My guess is other Elven lords or Mom knows a bunch more than she has been letting on.
I think someone called it yesterday (or was it day before) when they mentioned some good guys getting stuck on the “real world” side of the portal coming to help.
a couple pages ago i count 16 pairs of eyes. where did the others nightmare beasties go? or did they get shot already?
Actually, this can be a relative we’ve never met. Dad. Too bad he wouldn’t turn out to be the Dark Overlord then, though.
Now, our TWC status.
#6: 5,523 <= us, still uncomfortably close to
Vote, fellow Readers!
That was my guess!!! Would be great for THAT to be his introduction!!! ^_^
Dan: Dad… DAD!?!?!? O_O
Father: Dannnn straight! Get it!???
Nicole: *sigh* Jeez, his arrows might be sharp but his jokes… >_>
Father: But hey, at least I know how to make my point, right? Eh? Eh? *nudging Dan*
Dan: Dad….please. Just…stop.
For some reason, my thoughts jumped straight to his mom. Who holds more secrets than we know …
I would love for it to be either Mom or Dad, but we know that Dreamlanders were also stuck in our world when the gate was destroyed. These ‘guardians’ are their descendants. And becuase arrows are used, it would have to be either centaurs or elves. And because of the accuracy, strong enough to penetrate and kill/maim the aggressors, but not go far enough to harm the protectees, it would most likely be elves.
That being said, because one of the kickstarting options was to create and name a character for this book, these will be the new characters/guardians.
Informed guessing. …hopefully I’m right. Can’t get any more specific.
A Thursday cliff hanger???
Scott … CAN’T WAIT!!!!!
My first thought was it was his mom, but why would she casually carry a bow around while snooping on her son?
I also thought Legolas, but I knew while formulating that thought it was very unlikely, for copyright reasons alone.
I like the thought about hidden Elf guardians, but we’ll see.
My money is on some new Dreamland ally on earth, somehow someway. Cheap? Maybe, but better than explaining why Mrs. Carter carries a bow, and calmly responds to a bunch of supernatural creatures attacking Dan and Nicole by shooting to kill.
King Arthur perhaps?
This. King Arthur is my choice as well. And since we’ve never seen Dan and Alex’s father, there’s also the chance that King Arthur IS Dan and Alex’s father. What more natural than the son(s) of the former King of Dreamland becoming the next King?
I thought King Arthur died when Alex drew the sword…
For Alex to enter Dreamland, the prior King could no longer be King, but there’s no requirement that the prior King be dead. (After all, Dan can assume the mantle of King of Dreamland at any time without Alex dying.) Abdication would have served just as well.
King Arthur was still entombed and motionless in dreamland when the wraiths attacked. Even if he had been revived he would be in dreamland. Also it would have taken a magic user on both the Dreamland and real world side for this to happen.
Alex actually got into Dreamland via a loophole in the laws of succession. Dan was the one who was barred from entering Dreamland (hence why he’s never dreamed) because Arthur was still (technically) king while he was stuck between life and death. Scott has verified this for us if I’m not mistaken.
Van Helsing, the immortal monster hunter and appointed guardian of the Dreamland King’s earthly body.
Or, even better, Nat’s parents!
*Nastajia. Sorry, typo.
Just a clarification… there IS a page tomorrow.
But the reveal isn’t until Monday.
Perhaps Robin Hood?!?!?
Reveal monday? Oh, so much time now for guessing. And I suppose that “who” negates this as being part of Dan’s plan? Ambushing the ambushers would have been right up his alley though. His assault on the castle had beautifully deceptive layering. Loving the action here, Scott!
And whoever this is, I think there’s a bunch of ‘em. I saw a several pairs of glowing eyes whose owners now seem uncharacterisitcally shy.
Well, it does appear the odds are in their favor…
Like button… No! No! No!, the love button is missing here. LOLd pretty good.
He has an eye… like a hawk…
HAWKEYE???? Are we doing a Marvel crossover now?
You got me speculating waaay too much.
The guardian only has ONE eye?
Also, see the comment below re: a dwarf.
The implication of Scott’s “hint” is Hawkeye (The Avengers). I would point out though, that Hawkeye has two eyes, and the hint is playing on his name, as an arrow shooting super hero, rather than implying their saviour only has one. Then again, maybe Scott is just that good
I’m leaning towards someone like Horus- it ties into the Egyptian/Serapolis theme, and he is usually depicted with a falcon head
That’s it. Definitely. Horus. Or similar.
Merlin? Is he awake?
That was my first thought when I started seeing the guesses that maybe it was Arthur.
That sounds like a Dreamland character. Well, we have the humans that were stuck in Dreamland, so weren’t there Dreamlanders stuck in the human world (besides the Nightmare realm critters)? Hmmmm….
So why did Excalibur stop glowing in today’s and yesterday’s pages?
I first thought some Legolas knock-off. XD
Then I thought their mom.
Then I thought the nigh unseen father.
But I settled on Mr. Tinkles. He is actually a shapeshifter that comes from a long line of protectors of the royal family in the waking world.
It’s a dwarf, …with ears of a fox.”
“Who breathes so loudly we could…”
Damn, those arrows penetrated quite far.
dam, arrow right though the throat, bad way to go.
And here I thought for some reason that maybe Alex/Nastajia had found the nightmare realm’s portal…and she shot the arrows… but this “he has the eye of a hawk” got me confused
I learn something new. Nightmare realm creatures do not have blood.
Rather long arrows to stick out that much on both sides. And totally different penetration angles with arrows that went that deep ( means high velocity which argues for a flat flight path ). Conclusion: Two archers ( one up in a tree ) with steam powered crossbows.
Alternate conclusion: An archer the size of the Jolly Green Giant with a bow to match who kneels for the second shot.
I really want one of those steam powered crossbows.
There’s blood. Green blood. Surprised no one can see it. Maybe it’s the smaller size of the web. It’s there, though.
Will post Friday’s page in the morning.
It’s not Viola, is it?
No one guessed native americans? Indians we call them…
… they had connections with centaurs, I believe they handle with those creatures on the american continent while the white man sleeps.
actually, yes – the thought did cross my mind this morning. Didn’t the centaurs mention they used to or still come ? to Dreamland through their dream travels (can’t remember the correct term)?
Putting down a bet here for Mom. Badass Mom/Mama Wolf. “GET AWAY FROM MY SON.”
I’m guessing it’s a Dreamlander who was trapped in the real world – most likely someone who was taken for a deity/demigod by ancient humans. Odin comes to mind, but his primary weapon was a spear. There are also the Cyclopes – perhaps a (smaller) relative of the Cyclops that opened Dreamland over 1500 pages ago….
Obviosly no one understands the meaning of having an “eye like a hawk” which implies that the person has extremly good vision and a perfect aim. When shooting a bow, to have an eye like a hawk means you are on target, you can’t miss. So whoever it is, is an expert bowman!
I was thinking of Felicity, she has an unknown mission. But then i asked myself did we see Felicity ever seen with bow and arrow, i cant remember.
Then Scott broke down the last hope telling us it is a “He” with a eye as a hawk.
Now i have no idea. For me now every one can be it with that description
As from reading Scott’s command, it looks like we know already the person already.
But it is not clear for me at all. And rereading the whole 1590 pages again is something i really dont like to do right now.
So, i expect, we need to wait until Monday.
I know who it is. Beyond a shadow of a doubt.
Drum Roll Please
It is No Carrier Detected ……
I’m betting on Robin Hood, or one of his descendents. (Which would include females, like mom? Or perhaps a secret organisation founded by Robin Hood under orders of his king?
Maybe even grown up Red Riding Hood, murderizing all evil speaking wolves ;D
