Aww, thanks guys! That's lovely stuff to read for my morning :)

Four Winds--you can't go inside, you didn't miss something d-d. We posted a screenshot of what's behind Black Widow, though, so people could get a chance to see it more clearly.

I picture it sitting on his shoulder as Alexander walks around ^^
If KQVI was ever made into a movie, I can see Alexander walking around Beast's forest with a CGI Dangling Participle constantly running from one shoulder to another asking questions and being a little chatterbox. ^_^ Kind of like Donkey from Shrek, except Alexander would be more amused than annoyed. :)
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!

I think you get that view if you LOOK at the Four Winds building.

I was gonna say, because the first time I tried going in there Black Widow killed me. With that screenshot I started getting the feeling there was some new way to go in that I hadn't discovered... I don't have a magic paintbrush, either, sorry. Wish I did though. That would be awesome!

Oh- That is SUCH a cute image right there :3 I couldn't imagine Alexander getting annoyed at anything actually- except the society. He's pretty humble, eh?

As long as it didn't end up being more like Jar Jar Binks.  :X

Well, now all this Participle on Alex's shoulder business just has to be drawn. <3 It's never going to leave me alone otherwise!

I could give it a go, but is there any decent Participle reference pics anywhere?

Sadly, that is why I need a reference. You can't tell anything from the pic :( Heh... It has the rear end of a plucked chicken

I believe that is the only primary source of reference for the Dangling Participle.

Imagine the front of a baby dragon and the backside of a possum. That's how he's described in KQVI, anyway.
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!

Oh, LOVELY! :D I am so pleased to hear about a fan art forum - I may in fact squee. And I do indeed have some arts I doodled on this subject... let's see if I can figure out how to post it there. And here, just in case I can't...





AWESOME. :D Alex, among a couple other obscure pieces of fanart. My Alexander admittedly looks kind of different from canon, or other peoples'... I just tried to present him as he's always seemed to me; a sweet kid, who's been through absolute hell, just starting to figure out what a wonderful, strong person he is. And his LITTLE FRIENDS. :D

Heh.  It actually looks closer than TSL's Alex.  ;)

Really? Cause both the TSL version and this one have gravity-defying hair, isn't that your issue? :P

You should have entered the Calender competition, sylver! That artwork is amazing! And I gotta admit, TSL style Alexander is my favorite!

Hehe...no, I just meant that the costume is a little closer.  I was more making fun of the fact that people have made such a big deal about such a minor thing as a slight visual character redesign.  I actually have never expressed any issue with TSL's Alex look.  That was someone else.  The visual look of the characters is purely cosmetic and really has no bearing on whether or not the game experience retains the feel of an original Sierra adventure, in my opinion.  :)
