Chapter 20: Discussion (Part 2)
« on: March 16, 2009, 12:57:13 pm »
This thread is for discussion the rest of chapter 20, pages 17-30.

Uh oh! Will the truth come out? Will there be surprises? What will happen? I'm so nervous!

HOLY *bleep* *bleep* *bleeeeeeeeeep*

Yeah. Here we were thinking you'd continue the tension of the secret revealing it's self and all of a sudden WHAM!  I guess it couldn't continue forever but now their relationship makes a terrible new turn as they fact the issue.


At least they're stuck on that carriage for another 3 days to sort it out.

The truth just came out, man. You're just reusing your post from last time. Shaaaaame!

I've always had the feeling Bern knew all along. I'm not sure I'd like it more if she did or not, though. The dramabomb that this will likely set off if she didn't will be immense. I can't wait!

I wish Suspira was nicer about it. Just becuase she exposed the truth doesn't mean she should roister in shadenfroid, but that's just me. :o

Ha! I knew it! You like defiling your peanut butter with jam! Shame on you!

I've also had the feeling the entire time that Bern has known all along...

Crest should keep his mouth shut.  He's just annoying right now, and in the way.

He's not annoying. He's saying what I'm thinking. He's also as powerless to stop Susperia as I am. But even if he is annoying and in the way, at least he's that instead of his usual Pinball Protagonist roll.

I dunno I could think of a few wasy to try and stop her.... But the end result would probably be death from the over emotional basketcase that Susperia is at this point in the story.

*runs around screaming in panic*

I think it will ease Maytags mind sortof, to finally have told Bernadette, and then they can work on their problems and that "compromising", IF Bernadette forgives her. D:

You mean somewhere in Book 0 Where Maytag's going out and Bern asks her not to put the jester outfit on? That's always had an "Cuz I know you'll sleep around if you do" tone to it in my mind.

Yeah. I think so too sometimes. Becuase she could find out pretty easily if she tried...

And your avatar is super cute by the way  :-[

Thats 'cos Akashayi's super cute  ::)

The one thing that leads me to think that Bern doesn't know is her conversation 'round the camp fire where she praises Maytag for her honesty and open opinions.  Considering Bern was willing to lie to the knights, give up her dream of becoming one and even die rather than live without Maytag, it'll be interesting to see how she reacts to the Maytag falling from the high pinacle she's placed her on.

Bern's face always looked a little off at the campfire. She probably doesn't know, but that look she had on always made me a little suspicious.

looks fine to me *shrug*

Even this one looks alright

I must agree that I still feel like Bern has a few secrets of her own though.  Sometimes, I think people also believe what they want to.  It could be that Bern had inklings as to Maytag's fidelity but unwittingly ignored them in favour of the idealistic, Mary Sue, image she'd formed of her.  I was wondering if Suspira was going to continue the inquest but that last panel looks like she's dropped the spell.

Any idea why EVERYONE is sweating so much?  I can understand Maytag and Bern, maybe even Crest, but whats up with Suspira... Unless it's the effort of casting the lvl 3 nagelring spell *shrug*.

Suspiria's struggling to hold the spell, May and Bern are nervous and struggling against it.  Crest is...well, he's Crest.  He gets nervous easily.

...relieved.
And I'm too.
So I suppose Bern knew all along about May cheating habits,but was waiting maybe for her to confess,so in some way Suspiria helped them.
But if she knew why she didn't take any action?
Hah it seems even May is surprised,next page should be interesting...

It does make me wonder though, how much did Bern know?

Did she...

a) Know all along, just relieved at the confession so that they can now be open and confront it.

b) Expect it to happen because of May's personality and to have the confirmed truth means that May has stayed the same person she ever was.

or something else?

So this is, why Suspiria is also sweating. It's a exhausting spell.
And most of us where right, Bernadette knew something. Else her reaction would have been very different. Now, what did she know, and that both of them know that she knew all along, what is she willing to accept?

Hi. First time here. Loving Flipside so far.

I have a theory on why Bern could be relieved. She now sees that Maytag is not perfect, that she's human. Being with someone you see as "perfect", without flaws, can be quite difficult.

1. Suspira is out of essence
2. Bern just stood up in a moving carriage

I'd say she's going to kick her arse but *shrug*

I guess the other thing is all Bern knows is that Maytag cheated on her.  She doesn't know how much or anything like that... Unless the relief is at finally hearing a truth she's known all along.

I'm hoping we hear the reason behind her relief but I guess she has no reason to divulge the truth now the spell is gone.

just a possibility: Bern may also have cheated?  That's why she's relieved?

i rather doubt it, but just wanted to throw it out there.

..love how Glyph called Suspiria an idiot..apparently she hasn't learned much or matured much after Kin's death.  You'd think she'd be more careful with her essence.  But also, I wonder if all the Phalanx are a bunch of juvenile peeping toms and spoiled brats.

yeah I can't wait to see what Bern is going to do here, although I think she's just going to give Nessy a good scare.  Not that that will do much - after a night's rest she can still destroy Bern at will as long as she doesn't deplete herself again.

Given Kin's words before going to fight Mary, I don't think so.

I was going to respond that only those getting involved with May and Bern, but forgot about Kin. Why? Hell if I know.

That's what I was thinking -- that Bern was relieved because she did something bad too, and now she feels she can confess to Maytag.

It'd be nice to see this whole thing blow up in Suspiria's face.

I would be really surprised if Bern with her morality would have cheated on May,while being with her in love relationship,with some girl on the side.
It would be totally out of her character.
But again we don't know what they were doing while being together in relationship in time prior to this story,maybe Bern learned that May was cheating on her,and she gone to bar,met some nice girl and she did it with her due to some kind of revenge.
Heh,I'm curious what motives Brion will show us in next pages.
