So it started, and so it must end… With Velveteen signing off on this chapter of Shards. Stop by Thursday for the title page of the new Shards Journal storyline. Any guesses as to what’s next? Here’s a hint: I showed you this character a while back but now the little guy is right on time for the upcoming holiday ;)
I wanted to say more on this little poster to explain what was going on in case it wasn’t clear but thought it’d get too wordy so I’ll explain here:
Cindy is depositing gifts into the other Heroes’ stockings, Goldie is making a withdrawal, and Want and Ignorance are playing their part in goading each gal on (Cindy is ignorant to what Goldie is doing, Goldie is being selfish).
Anyway, I wanted a different poster and this was TB’s idea. Thanks, TB! *hugs* I also wanted to show more of Want and Ignorance before the close of this story, so here it is!
This could have been the last page but I wanted a little extra and not have David’s three be the last of this set. Who gets the last journal? Check back Tuesday! Also, there will be a Christmas post on the 25th so look for it!
This journal has some reiteration but I thought it would be important to add David’s perspective and add a reminder of his special harp-playing ability, and of course it leads into more intrigue! Plus, he is the first character to actually SHOW you what Pinocchio looks like in our Shards world.
Pinocchio’s clothes were based on what I could find of period boy clothes for Italy, as it is an Italian story. The cap on his head, sensationalized a little by Disney, is more accurately portrayed here. It is also a part of the story not mentioned in the Disney version in which it was Geppetto’s cap and Pinocchio stole it. Geppetto just never got it back and presumably let the boy have it. The Disney version also did not have Pinocchio accidentally burning off his own legs like a dummy or calling the cops on Geppetto saying the poor guy beat Pinocchio. What a naughty boy! If interested, check out the story in your local library like I did (I like to go to the actual story and not just the internet to get a real taste for the writing of a story before I delve into it Shards-style ;) )
There will be THREE journals this week. Yes! So much is going on in this one scene that I had to divide it into two strips. Just wouldn’t fit into one. So you’ll get ANOTHER David Journal entry on Wednesday as well as a Hanstel Journal entry on Thursday. Hurray!
