I can't tell if "Agent Elrond" is just a big jerk or principled and pragmatic. I can't imagine that his loquaciousness will make him popular though - let alone with me when having to make space for his rants.
I have a fair suspicion that the fellow in the last panel might garner a following, though. Maybe I'll have to have him and Randy Exposition on a talk show together...
Hehehe. I like Agent Elrond's name alone, so I hope he ends up being more principled and pragmatic. I also agree that the guy in the last panel will get a following. He alos seems to talk like Kirk. Where. Every. Word. Is. It's. Own. Sentence!
I honestly have no idea yet what'll come of all these characters. As I think I've hinted before, the whole chapter is a maelstorm of subplots, both pre-existing and intended for the future, thrown together.
When control is forced upon thing again... well, momentum can be a cruel mistress.
Yeah, subplots get tricky to keep track of after awhile, unless you're keeping really good, well explained notes. I'd have to think that'd be a rather long document for you at this point.
I've only been doing writing for this year's story arcs for about three days and I've already gotten things to the point, where year 3's story arc summaries look like a walk in the park.
I can only imagine what kinds of tomes Dr. Legostar and some of the other must have.
