Sacrifice

Some people guessed this outcome already, but yep, when you become a guardian you forget your past. When I thought up this bittersweet tragedy back in January, I knew I had to do this even if it was so utterly sad.
I'll be including this story arc (that this issue 2 into a actual comic that I'll be selling over at Guardiancon this July! So I hope to see you there!

I'll be updating this comic less frequently now, but stay tuned for little surprises here and there! I'm looking forward to Destiny2 Year 2!

#ghostsareevil

but really though its cool he became a guardian and im sure he will have a legit super...totally...ok given this comics history its gonna be more arms isn't it? (yes I took inspiration for that super idea from another comment)

Oh yeah, guardians don’t remember their past. SHOOT! Dreg doesn’t remember Watermelon.

what is his class and his super? also is he now Randal since he is a vandal now?

Time to reveal my secret

I am bonsaiguy5, I just wanted there to be more diversity in the comment section and get people interested in learning Japanese but people got annoyed with that real quick.

And so their purpose is ...

Trying very hard to kill Watermelon again?

It isn't bittersweet but it is sounds like a whole new adventure is going to start.

Oh!

I just released his ghost is a servitor!

lazesummerstone, June 4th, 2018, 10:13 pm

@Bobmud: Yep it's my theory that servitors are just bad copies of the ghosts they used to have.

Reply
Guest, June 7th, 2018, 8:47 pm

@lazesummerstone: Huh. I kind of thought that that was what you were going for. Does that mean his ghost can generate ether? Others have asked if Greg would need it.

Guest, June 4th, 2018, 12:02 pm

NOOOOO

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!! HE HAS TO REMEMBER HIMMMMM!!!! PLEASE LET HIM GET HIS MEMORY BAAAAACK!!! Watermelon exo was getting it back so that means GREG CAN TOO!!

lazesummerstone, June 4th, 2018, 10:14 pm

@Guest: Yeah maybe theres a situation where a memory can come back. I hope so!

Reply
XenoSynthetic (Guest), June 4th, 2018, 12:43 pm

Memory is the key

As long as Greg remains calm, Watermelon can retell all of their adventures together. It'll be like he never forgot anything! Well, anything after their first encounter in the Cosmodrone. Everything before that is lost forever...

@lazesummerstone: Honestly, I'm glad to see a Fallen Guardian. Anyways, I've got a question: How long does it take you to make each page? Just curious, because I'm working on my own Destiny Fan Comic. Not that answering this question would help with that, it's just that this question has been nagging me all morning.

Reply
lazesummerstone, June 6th, 2018, 9:08 pm

@GoodGuyGus: It takes me usually around 12 hours or so of work for 1 comic page? I basically come home from work and get started on the comic after dinner. It takes several days usually. Comics are hard!

GoodGuyGus (Guest), June 6th, 2018, 8:26 am

Oh, and another question: The new Forsaken DLC has been shown to the public, but there's no pages on the first two D2 DLCs (Osiris and Warmind). Do you plan on including those DLCs in story elements, or not? I'd understand if you'd rather keep it confidential. It'd make for a good surprise.

~Gus

P.S. I know it'd be a slim chance for me to get this, but can I help you out with these comics? At the moment, I've got nobody who enjoys making comics and Destiny as much as you. Also, you seem like a cool dude. But, once again, I understand if you'd rather work on your own. Don't wanna mess up the vision that you have. BUT, if you're interested, which'd be really cool, my gmail will be sent to you directly.

Reply
lazesummerstone, June 6th, 2018, 9:07 pm

@GoodGuyGus: I might include Osiris or Warmind stuff now that I've finally finished this 12 page arc that I was working on since January. I'm not sure. But as for collaboration, I'm not really sure how that'd work? Comics are always a pretty solitary thing for me. Thanks for the offer though!

Oh, and one more question: Xbox One or PS4

Now, I understand if this may be too much for you, but just know that this question has the potential to start wars, such as whether or not water is wet. So answer with caution.

*I'm just hyping this up for fun, fyi

Among other guardians, Cayde-6 explicitly mentions memories of his past and his first death in d1 grimoire. I’m watching veeery carefully.

You know that all fallen have to have ether (sorry I can’t spell) why doesn’t Greg need ether through out the comic?

Reply
lazesummerstone, June 8th, 2018, 10:37 am

@Kian: I just figure Dregs barely get any, and maybe he's taking care of his own either needs. The whole comic might also have been only a few days of actual time. I dunno.

Kaleb (Guest), June 7th, 2018, 8:44 pm

I wonder if becoming a Guardian would solve his whole 'starving in need of Ether' problem, since Fallen need Ether to live, and they believe the Traveller not only is the source of Ether, but gave them Ether in the first place?

He could be a Cured Fallen!

Reply
lazesummerstone, June 8th, 2018, 10:38 am

@Kaleb: Yes that why his little ghost is in more of a Servitor form. I figure the traveler helps the civilization it goes to get to building technology, so it gets rid of things like reliance on either by providing it. hope that makes any sense at all!

Arcstrider Exo (Guest), June 8th, 2018, 6:43 am

@lazesummerstone: I have a question. How do you draw Exos so well? I want to make a comic about my Exo, but I don't understand how to get her face drawn.

Reply
lazesummerstone, June 8th, 2018, 10:39 am

@Arcstrider Exo: if you look through my comic i basically change up the way I draw exos all the time. I try to simplify their faces as much as I can though and that helps.

Arcstrider Exo (Guest), June 8th, 2018, 12:03 pm

@lazesummerstone: Okay.

Reply
Guest, June 8th, 2018, 4:38 pm

Maybe...

Maybe the memory loss has something to do with how long they have been dead.. so maybe watermelon exo hasn’t been dead that long so that’s why he is getting his memory back. If that’s true then that means that Greg will get his memory back really quickly. I hope so...

Reply
lazesummerstone, June 8th, 2018, 9:57 pm

@Guest: I think there are other instances when past memories are remembered but its specifically exos. Cayde said its something to do with the travellers light messing with the wiring up in that Exo head.

PancakeSLAP (Guest), June 12th, 2018, 5:50 am

Wow

@lazesummerstone: This, I think,is pretty cool. I like the little detail of him having his two other arms again. What does the writing on his lower left arm say? All I could translate was 'lab', from top down, since that's how the fallen write, at least I think.
