I'll let Katie take care of the Persephone thing, since she's the expert in that story :)

I know at points we did talk of Ceres from KQ7. But I'll let her handle it, since she finalized that particular story.

What about Mananan killing Alexander if he stepped out of line, and the implicit plotline of him killing Alexander anyway once he turned 18?

Who says that was a guarantee?  The chickens?

Who are you going to trust? A dark wizard who is infamous for killing all of his slaves, or the chickens?  :P

Would it be too late to tie-in a KQ7 reference? I find this particular element of the story to not stand out as a crucial piece of the story, but for those who'd rather argue semantics, it may be wise, if not advised.

I found the main story to be an interesting twist. All of the speculation we have considered in the past few months have accumulated as a typical foresight. I wasn't that surprised by what was revealed, but I also wasn't disappointed. That ending really got me on the edge.  :o

The chickens. Always trust the chickens! ...wait, that's not right...

I'm just gonna shove everything under a spoiler cut here....

The Alex question I think we covered clearly enough. I hope this helps with the Persephone/Ceres question!

Correct me if I'm wrong I think KQ6 talks about "Mother Earth", while KQ7 refers to Ceres as "Mother Nature".
Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg

I don't recall any references to Earth in that religious sense in KQ6.
The only religious mentions I heard were Alex saying 'Thank the Heavens' and the Fates being mentioned.

I don't know off the top of my head, but in TSL, they refer to her/it by a few different titles, but you'll see that in a later episode.

I'm sorry, but I think I'm even more confused now. :-\ It seems almost like you're changing facts from the official games to fit your story and coming up with really complex reasons why your story and the older games don't quite match up. It's more like coming up with theories about how the story could work instead of actually saying how the story works...

I think it just complicated as I was kind of talking about two different things at the same time, really.

And I actually just remembered something from KQ6. I don't know how I forgot it, but right before the "robbed of sleep, robbed of movement, robbed of companionship" line, The Arch Druid says this about the Lord of the Dead (I added the bold part):
