Getting married in the Green Isles
« on: September 26, 2010, 02:50:16 AM »
I saw this mentioned a couple of times since episode 1 was released.  Rosella getting married in the Green Isles is NOT A PLOT HOLE.

Its not like the majority of people get married in their own homes (unless its a really nice one) nor does everybody get married in their local church.  In fact I know a lot of people who decide to take a cruise and get married on a distant beach because they like the scenery.  What it comes down to for many people is that the site of their wedding be a place that will make it a special memory.

In the case of Rosella she was visiting Cassima and Alexander, saw the garden and loved it.  Upon realizing this Cassima offered to use it for her upcoming nuptials.   Remember travel between Daventry and The Green Isles is now possible because of Shamir and due to the Royal Family's adventures trade routes have been opened between the lands of Daventry/Green Isles and Serenia as made evident by the Four Winds newsletter.

I know its a royal wedding and due to its importance would be held in Daventry.  However Rosella is strong willed and gets what she wants.  Besides as Edgar mentioned in episode 2 it wouldn't be the first time they did something to avoid drawing unnecessary attention to themselves.  Finally wasn't Graham married in Kolyma before taking his bride home to Daventry?  And he was the bloody king!!

Agreed!! I said all this a few times.

Speaking of "plot holes" that aren't... I know everyone is up in arms over the scene between Manannan and Alexander but.... isn't that Alexander's dream? So, while I think it's plausible given the fact that Alexander lived in this timeline, that Manannan never intended to kill him but Alexander didn't know that (or perhaps intended to drain his power and then kill him), nothing in that scene is really Manannan admitting to anything. Nor is it Manannan returned to human form. It's just a dream that we happen to be witnessing.

It's certainly not a plot hole. However, I always figured that if Rosella and Edgar were to marry, it would have definitely been in Etheria. Although it threw me off at first, this is not a problem for me now. What does kind of irk me though is that the two got married at the Castle of the Crown on her and Alexander's birthday!

Just a nitpick, but it doesn't actually ruin anything. It's all good. :)

She wanted to make sure Edgar would NEVER forget her birthday!!!

In fact, this whole thing is a hoax cooked up by Rosella as a punishment for the fact that Edgar forgot it last year! How dare he??

On an almost completely unrelated note, I watched a wedding on the beach yesterday. It was pretty sweet.
I never thought twice about Rosella's wedding being there. Rick mentioned a lot of good reasons, and I thought that perhaps there was some backstory concerning Alexander and Cassima's duties and King and Queen that required them staying in the Green Isles.
Plus, for the birthday celebrations it would be easier on Alexander (consideration for the fact that he's a new king) for the family to come to him rather than for him to come to them.
So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Haha, I'm always kind of amused that Rich's forum name says 'Rick'. I've never called him that or known him to be called that! Maybe he went by it at one point, I wouldn't know, but we all call him Rich. :)

Ah. I was just going by what the forum name told me. I thought I had seen him called Rick before, but perhaps I was seeing Rich and my mind was reading it as Rick.

I think I got everything else that you said, but I don't really understand this point. I don't see what was so strange for Graham to get married there since it's Valanice's homeland (and she's royalty, according to the Kings Quest Companion).

It's true it is her kingdom. She was a princess of that fair land, to quote the KQC. Her father was the prince of that land. Next in line to being the king? Who knows.
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

But of what castle? That's what gets me about the Companion's added storyline about Valanice's parents...there's NO government to be seen at all in KQ2. There are very few people living there, and we see the whole island. The only castle is Dracula's, and the rest of the people are scattered loosely around the place.

I don't remember a garden from King's Quest 6 and it doesn't look that great in Episode 1. No bushes, no trees, no flowers. It's just a flat green texture. There's nothing that could justify the marriage there. The architecture of the castle wouldn't allow a garden inside the high castle walls anyway.

You've never seen a garden surrounded by walls?  They're fairly common actually.

The castle in general is nicer than the castle in Daventry (Alexander himself says just that in KQ6) and the garden area is plenty beautiful without flower and trees all over the place - I've attended weddings in settings almost perfectly identical, open grassy area with benches and a walkway, arch, and altar.
