Something like that, about the clothes. The Gate World is weird and semi-sentient in a way that no one really understands, and likes to make adjustments as it sees fit.
"Weird effects" mostly in that it makes you sick. Headaches, nausea, etc. It gets worse the longer you're there.
The copy-paste may have been the problem; I checked the settings on Curious Cat and there wasn't one pertaining to links so apparently it's not something I can turn off.
Finally, no, I kind of changed the way the time warp works in the new canon specifically because of that plothole. It'll be explained at some point.
In regards to the CDs, no, I changed that in the new canon--you'll see what adjustment was made at some point, I think it gets mentioned in a few chapters. As far as people go, technically speaking anyone can travel through the Gate World, but the only gate they can go through without some sort of "key" (i.e. a Dreamstone) is the one to their home world. So, no, Riza couldn't bring people back to Earth with her unless they had some sort of key to go there.
If she did, however, most people from Sanvolae would appear human on Earth; the Gate World automatically transforms you into whatever form it thinks most suits the world you're headed into, so Riza couldn't go to Earth as a Halcrea or vice-versa unless she found a way to bypass the Gate World entirely (which actually is possible, but it has weird effects on people and doesn't come up in DCR).
I still haven't created a gallery page on the new site to display fanart and extra art and stuff. It's on my to-do list. Everything is buried on my computer somewhere so eventually most of it will get re-uploaded.
I'll check on the Curious Cat thing. It shouldn't be trying to make you sign in. I'm sure it's just some kind of spam filter setting.
AHHH THIS LOOKS SO GOOD AND I LOVE IT!! I really like your take on the stained glass style with Artturo and Morgai and your colors are so nice and vibrant! You also nailed Uther's personality with the pose and expression haha. (Also looking back at the original your art has DEFINITELY improved, you should be proud!
Can I save this to put in the fanart gallery on the DCR site whenever I get around to making one?
(Dude I can't stop looking at Artturo, I really like the way you drew him )
