    First I thought it was Roy getting married, then I thought it was Elan.

    Amazing strip. XD

    Even if these happenings are pretty much as expected it still is very funny.

    Roy's Elan's brother now.

    Is that Inky in the front row? If so, this may confirm the entire group illusion scenario.


    But for the most part...this wedding...it is so sad, because it won't happen.

    Second question. Well that can't be it, since Malack is the priest.

    So what is Elan's plan for Durkon? We haven't seen it in the illusion...

    This is, like, Elan's own fanfiction! I also wasn't expecting Tarquin to be the groom, as he was so confident, but as he said - he's got a lot of experience with this things.

    I'm really enjoying the insights we're getting into the Order's desires here!

    Yes, it seems to be. But this is odd, since even if this was a group-illusion, Vaarsuvius would still not be here.
    It might be that Vaarusivus told Haley, but this entire piece here pretty much screams "Elan", especially as the last strip was "Happy Ending".

    And I guess that huge beast in the corner is the one we constantly see in shadows? At least the eyes look the same..

    We're never going to escape the happy ending! ahhh

    Purple shade looks nicer this time. The old colour made me feel sick.

    Also, does mean Elan's Mother was part of Elan's plan? I assume that happened in the happy ending verse.

    Don't know why Roy's vision would approve of Tarquin getting a happy ending.

    EDIT: V looks like a girl in this.

    Well that was unexpected.

    And also confirms that Elan at least is contributing to the illusion, not just Roy.

    Pretty sure that's the Empress of Blood.

    Huge beast in the corner ... are you talking about the left hand side of the final panel? I'm pretty sure that's the Empress of Blood. Which would kinda make sense at a wedding Malack presided over where Tarquin was getting married.

    I'm pretty much the opposite of concise. If I fail to get to the point, please ask me and I'm happy to (attempt to) clarify.

    This is definitely specific to Elan, since it has the most silly characters for a final ending - what's Sabine and the Empress of Blood doing there?? This means the last one was probably Roy's, although this could easily be a continuation.

    I think there was a strip where Elan expressed desire for his mother and father to reunite.

    I'm starting to get the feeling the Order will have been in the illusion for a while, and the awakening will not be at all pleasant...

    "Huge beast in the corner?" Surely you're not referring to the Empress standing with the other bridesmaids?

    Nooooooo!!!! If we the audience see everyone's happy story in the dream world, then it will never happen in the real continuity. Which means that everyone is doomed to failure and/or bittersweet endings. So very, very sad.

    Fabulous story telling though. I don't think I've ever been so emotionally engaged in the life of any cartoon or comic book character since the Dark Phoenix Saga.

    Oh man, this is bad. Awakening will NOT be pleasant and likely send everyone into BSOD mode.

    I think this is Elan's plan; get his dad and mom together and he somehow thinks it will work (who knows, it actually might!).

    Why do I feel like the Giant is going to pull a fast one and reveal that this is Tarquin's illusion.

    The last one just made me sad, but this one made me sad and made me laugh. Tarquin was amazing. Little Fighter Girl was amazing. All the little bowties were amazing. And I'm just really sad now.

    Part of me wonders if the Giant intially intended the last strip to serve as Elan's oracular happy ending, but then he realised forum posters needed it spelled out for them even more literally...
