Seras: I thought the catboy was so innocent…I trusted it! When it was working for the enemy all the time!

Pip: Don’t be too hard on yourself. None of us saw it coming. Even Alucard was fooled…

Seras: I let it bathe with me!!

Pip: And I tried to stop you, but did you listen?

D’awwww…Seras really liked Schroe. Seeing him betray her like that (and watching him get shot) must’ve stung. It’s like Old Yeller. With a snuggly catboy.

With luck, Seras will accuse Major of corrupting him and resolve to kick his can. And then when the fighting’s done she’ll scoop Schroe back into her arms and firmly state that he’s going to get a re-education to get that awful Nazi gunk out of his brain. I’d half expect Schroe to change sides just for the chance to nuzzle Seras’s bosom yet again.

Hunch? Um… shouldn’t the author know these things?

Yeah, that was my first thought as well, but it’s also occurred to me that might be post-traumatic stress disorder brought on by Pip mentioning the Valentine Brother’s attack. She saw a whole lot of people on her side get slaughtered and turned into monsters after all, and then going temporarily insane/berserk probably didn’t help with her coping any.

He’s a very clever catboy, and clever catboys know it’s best to stick close to their supply of milk 😉

P.T.S.D. is what my first thought on seeing Seras was as well. Though the pain of betrayal by Schroe makes sense too. Though in looking at the comic again, it seems more like she just saw something off-panel that caused her to choke up, rather than in response to what Pip said…

I just need to reference something before saying that yay SerasxPip is going to happen soon.

…This feels like it’s going to be the end. Of Shine. I don’t know why, it just feels like everything is leading up to this. But it’s different. Rip is still alive, and so is the Dandy. So is this really the end, or the precursor to the end, or…?

Garg. I need to go make a few Hellsing figurines now. I’m too confused.

Characters and stories sometimes reveal themselves slowly. Part of the fun of being a writer is the fun of discovery ^_^

I’d call it the precursor. This is the final battle we’re looking at, but it’s going to be a long while yet before it’s won.

Yeah, I mean, in Hellsing proper, it took, what, two, three volumes to go through the entire battle?

SailorPtah on Mon Nov 23, 2009 2:11 pm

Lol, I would say it was pretty much the last four ^_^

By the way, I just got interviewed about Shine by The Xcentrikz. Check it out for thoughts, reflections, Hitchhiker’s Guide quotations, and, yes, a few spoilers 😀

Awesome! A few more interviews and Shine could get its own Wiki page. Thanks for the shout outs, too. 😎

Chaos Priest on Mon Nov 23, 2009 7:47 pm

No offense to you Erin, but some of those questions in the interview seemed overly canned to me. Yeah, I realize it can be useful to have a standard set of questions to ask, a question like “If Shine were featured in an animated series, what would you imagine it being like?” when this started off as a fancomic of an animated series just makes it seem like they barely bother to alter formula at all other then sticking in one or two unique questions at the beginning. Several of their responses seemed a bit scripted as well, such as “That’s pretty colorful!” and “Haha, okay.”

SailorPtah on Mon Nov 23, 2009 9:21 pm

You can look around the other interviews for comparison – some of them follow a recognizable formula, but Shine, not so much.

On the other hand, the responses/transitions were actually added in afterwards. I got sent the questions all in one file, and sent the answers back in a group, and then those phrases were slipped in, I guess to make it flow better. Which apparently backfired on them ^_^;

Kazokuhouou on Mon Nov 23, 2009 10:29 pm

Pip has a point.

Xuanwu on Mon Nov 23, 2009 10:36 pm

A lot of real life interviewers throw in hackneyed responses. Colbert makes fun of this all the time, along with a good chunk of TDS crew.

“I let him bathe with me!” Mmm, I’m sure Schroe enjoyed that. I wonder if he took photos when she wasn’t looking and sold them to the other Millennium people. Seras could be their Betty Grable. XD

Hmmmmmm I’d buy that for a dollar!!!!!! Wow that’s funny to think little Ole Schro has been in the tub with Seras when she’d never allow Alucard even in the bathroom if she was bathing.

a_white_e on Tue Nov 24, 2009 6:30 am

To be fair to Seras, when she started letting Schroe bath with her, Schroe was not working for Millenium. It was only after the resolution of the body swap that Schroe!body and Schroe!mind were reunited and hanging out at Hellsing. Of course, she doesn’t know that, and neither does Pip.
