My first entry to the 2018 Dreamkeepers Caption Contest! Here we have Nainso discussing briefly with Tai in private about a certain kid who they thought have already gotten rid of by sending him to a terrible orphanage many years ago. Due to Nainso's character design looking slightly similar to Mace's, I figured it would be kind of a funny twist to have it turn out to be that he was the kid's father all this time.
Funny? Not really. Good dialogue, nice flow ... but doesn't seem to fit the characters. But that's just me. Good luck in the judging!
Thank you for the feedback DarqueH. Yeah, the dialogue is far from what Nainso or Tia would say if this were to ever happen in DK, but I tried to find a way to make this sound both comedic and natural due to the limitations of the page's speech bubbles, the sequence of the panels, and the rather blank expressions of the characters. There isn't really much freedom on what to do with this page, but me and the other contestants have to work with what we got.
You're welcome. Agreed that we have to work with what we were given, but I guess I was just reacting to anything in your scenario being 'funny'. Realistic, perhaps; bittersweet, certainly. It's a topic that's way to close to home for my family for me to find humor in unplanned, unwed pregnancies, so perhaps it's just a sensitive spot for me. That being said, I still think the dialogue and flow WERE well done, and I do wish you well in the judging. Peace, friend.
I can think of one reason why none of this makes any sense (Grunn), but on its own this is pretty damn funny. XD
I still keeping my theory of Nabonidus father of Mace for myself, by all scenes; but that scene is completly almost accurate.
Knew he was hiding something.
