This page is beautiful. The effects are gorgeous, and this scene gives us some real insight into just who Darkrai really was before Lovrina's meddling; thoughtful and observant, but with the same wit that we've seen throughout his entire story. It never feels as if Darkrai has had a sudden change of heart - this is just who he is, and who he has been all along. This scene finally lets us know just how far down he buried that part of him.

11/10.

Judging creatures who predate human civilization and probably humanity as a whole by human social considerations and/or law is absolutely silly. Let's arrest Arceus for not having a building permit when he created the universe, eh? That's the law, after all.

but i can't get out of my head the idea of someone walking on a room full of people sleeping, who starts watching them and smile because they look so peaceful while dreaming

and you can't deny that image is creepy just for say the least

I wont deny that its just darkrai for the first time in this story we get to see how he truly is. As for the sickness I do know from my knowledge of shadow Pokemon the effect does weaken with care, love, and trust being shown to the Pokemon in question. Even something as mundane as being with them can have an effect on that. However from my knowledge I also know that the sickness whilst reduces its grip when it does frenzy it fights much more fiercely...its also possible that it could occur more often because of its weak grip on darkrai but judging as it stands darkrai isn't the norm hes an exception as hes not a shadow pokemon corrupted by it under the normal conditions. The shadow pokemon effect also doesnt seem to spout frenzy at any random interval meaning as long as darkrai remains with friends and doesn't panic from stress his shadow pokemon affliction should remain stable. Cureing it is gonna be a whole other ball game though especially since this is not the normal shadow sickness... But i do know in its weakened state should prove to make it easier to purify Darkrai of it.

sorry your whole lore explaintion about Darkrai condition doesn't make less creepy the fact he's basically watching mons while they are sleeping

Who else is betting on something irreversibly horrible to happen soon because Darkrai is feeling hopeful about the future?

Same difference to me. We need to turn Lovrina into pumpkin pie and feed her to the ducks.

To save Darkrai from all her evil plotting.

Not necessarily. He says he's "listening" to the peaceful dreamers. I take it as being closer to being in the midst of a party and listening to the tone of the music and people. He's gotten so used to the room being full of fear and anger that hearing a happy party around him is just wonderful.

:iconspamer921:
spamer921 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2018
when someone is listening to other people coversations; which doesn't directly include them; while the other people are obliviuos
it's kinda stalking
Reply
:iconsilval58:
Silval58 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2018
So anytime you just sit at a party you're stalking others there? Even if you aren't specifically listening to their conversations?
Sorry, I think I'm not getting my idea across properly.
Reply
:iconspamer921:
spamer921 Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2018
well, you analogy says is not stalking if a person IS INVITED to the party.

I basically said if a person sneaks into a conversation where he has no busyness to be around to hear it is stalking

Darkrai is using his powers to listen to the dreams, so you tell does if that sound like he receives some kinda of invitation to that party?

So does this also make 'people watching' stalking? If you're just idly observing them as they go by, and you have strong empathic ability, is it truly your fault if you can tell how they're all feeling?

spamer921 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2018
dude that by any means counts as a violation of privacy,
but Darkrain listening other mon's dreams is kinda like watching someone while is sleeping

so you tell me if that is stalking

He's the Lord of Nightmares. The dreamscape is part of him, possibly. If he is the source of nightmares, or given dominion over part of the dreamscape by Arceus, then dreams are part of his realm and part of him.

The legendaries (rather, the Firstborn, as not all legendaries count) are something like... subordinate gods to Arceus in theme and execution, and this comic's actually done a great job of depicting that. This eons-old being who vastly predates human civilization and possibly all things as we understand them, has more right to any and all dreams than any dreamer. You can stop making it sound like he's some sort of head-sick stalker perving on people.

if a king owns a castle and he let people sleep inside his castle; does that mean, if said king watches their guests while they are sleeping, he is not stalking them because they are in his domain?

Fair enough.

I'm still not sure how Darkrai's dream walking works, if he's actually seeing / hearing snippets of dreams or if simply being near dreamers gives him some kind of empathic knowledge of the tone of the dreams nearby. Like maybe how many psychic pokemon are depicted as being able to read the emotions of a room, on purpose or not.

If Darkrai really is peeking into people's dreams then I agree, kinda stalkerish. If, however, it acts more like the empathy thing, where he can feel the general happiness of good dreams around him instead of the general anxiety he usually causes simply by being nearby, then I say it isn't stalkerish. Sulfur though would be the final say on what the comic version of The Nightmare King is doing.

well i had of an idea of "walking on dreams" thanks to this mlp episode
www.youtube.com/watch?v=jhTQvu…

and even there, where the princess  has a lore reason of why she watches other ponies dream, i can't stop thinking that's a violation of privacy and therefore stalking

I'd say that he's just feeling the happiness of the dreams, not really watching them or "stalking" them, from the way you put it. Besides, it's probably a rarity for him to feel happiness in someone's dreams whenever he's around, let him have this one moment of peace.
