Violent Blue 1/4/12

It’s a somber time over at Violent Blue, and I wanted to share some of my thoughts on the current storyline. It’s been part of the plan since the beginning, so don’t think I’m jumping the shark by killing off a main character, and don’t think that it’ll be forgotten anytime soon.

Sometimes there are no answers. None of this side of the schism anyhow. Sometimes the answers arn’t what we are really looking for anyhow.

As I write this, my mother-in-law is in the hospital. We think it may have been a heart attack, but we won’t actually know for a while yet. That may be the worst part. The not knowing. The timing, coming as it did in the middle of the funeral storyline….is unnerving to say the least.

I’ve always found Blasphemous rumors to be a strange dichotomy. It’s meant to be, but it really depends on your perspective. If you believe in eternity, if you believe in God and a saving relationship with him…then the song might just be about God holding back on taking that soul until it’s ready. Funny, considering the song’s meant to be an ironic tragedy. I find a great deal of hope in it. Apparently Steve does too.

We’re going to be heading into a rough year for some of our characters. Violent Blue has always tried to keep a hint of drama around, and this year is no diffrent. That said, I hope we’ll continue to make you laugh (starting next week we go back to funny, trust me) and maybe make you think sometimes as well.
