Sorry for not including the translation sooner, it was even more of a mystery!
“If I cannot move heaven… I will raise hell.”
– (a slightly interpretive, but oft-recognized translation) From Virgil’s Aeneid, in Latin
I hate you for making me use google translate…but thats clever.
“If I cannot bend heaven, I will move hell.” o.O
Arthur hates funerals? For some reason I wasn’t expecting that from him…
The last funeral Arthur (and Tristan) went to wasn’t a happy one, after all.
If Rose approaching the grave, reciting Latin, doesn’t make Mary’s spidey sense tingle, she needs to turn in her Esper card.
Another beautifully crafted page! Awesome!
Poor Mary, she always seem depressed u.u
That’s because she isn’t exactly happy about finding out about the new realities.
Sorry for the wordiness. English isn’t my strong point. And DAMN! I wish these came out more often! I’m always looking forward to the next page!
…Raise hell, eh? I wonder if the woman in the coffin (did we ever get her name?) will crawl out of there in a few days.
…this is a call for revenge, isn’t it ?
That’s a call for revenge, isn’t it ?
The interesting point here would be: revenge for what?
My first conclusion would be revenge for the death of the redhead, but Rose was heavily implied to be the killer herself. Then maybe Rose didn´t kill her after all as our very, very awesome A and K made me believe? Or is she swearing revenge on C and her organization for probably being made into one of the “twisted” beings that C mentioned?
I´m just having fun with weird theories here. Aaaaah, the suspense ^^ Thank you for making this incredibly addictive and interesting webcomic!!!
Aaaah Virgil, it’s always nice to meet you again.
What could it mean? This is what Juno said planning to destroy Aeneas and the Trojans…
The red tie seems significant.
That guy with the white hair and gold eyes looks a lot like Tentacle -Man from the first chapter.
I have made it the the current end. I have consumed a lot of web comics from all over the spectrum of style, plot, and theme and I find this one quite a good mixture of writing and drawing. You have gore, deep emotions, sex appeal, fantastic coloration and detailing among a plethora of time tested literary tropes. Bravo! Now I’m on to mentally engulf yet another comic.
Actually, its Galatian for ” if I cannot deflect the will of heaven… I will raise hell.”
I do not mean to offend you however, and love the art as well as the storyline. This is my favorite comic, and good wishes to you both.
Thank you and best wishes to you, too! But actually, it’s directly taken from Virgil’s Aeneid in Latin, which you can find a nice write-up of the line here. It’s also, as I said above, interpretive — as the word Acheronta here is a Greek name for a kind of underworld, or Hell, loosely described. Thus, the simplified interpretation that many scholars today use is: “If I cannot move heaven… I will raise hell.”
