Technically it's still the nazis who killed him.
>> No. 224915
Dammit Jones, lemme guess he's telling this story to Annie and Kat as he nears the entrance into the ether and they'll be horrified and sad. Maybe Kat channels some of that god being connection she has and gives Jones a smack across the face that actually hurts.
>> No. 224916
Because Jones deserves a smack? She was a bajillion years old and was curious what those horrible bombs felt like. Can't be easy to stay entertained at that age, she meant no harm, and she told him he shouldn't be there.

She's not a robot, but she sucks balls at injecting emotions into her statements. "You shouldn't be here" is about as close as she gets to "kid, RUN!"
>> No. 224918
I still don't know which war we're even in here.

They skipped over the Blitz in history class, I'm guessing?

Though I suppose it's different for us Brits, the period's permanently etched into our cultural memory.
>> No. 224925
Yea can't remember the last time they played Bedknobs and Broomsticks. One of the first times other than the Lion Witch and Wardrobe books I heard talk of the evacuation during the blitz.
>> No. 224936
Weren't the bombing raids in WW Part One very shitty and done with fucking Zeppelins?
>> No. 224938

Yes. There were a few air raids using Zeppelins on London during WWI, but they didn't do much damage. They freaked people out, so big psychological damage for sure, but not much actual property damage, and not the kind of sustained bombardment that they endured during the Blitz. No evacuation of children occurred during WWI.
>> No. 224941
I wonder what other things Jones tried to do for shits and giggles.

Gauntlet of the Witch tortures, bet she's a real kinky undying engine of destruction.
>> No. 224944
You know, after bathing in lava and spending a few million years encased in rock, I wouldn't think stuff like this would interest her anymore.
>> No. 224946
its the experiences, she's never been thumped in the head by a bomb before. Picks fights with Annie and Kat once they reach their highest power level Annie going full elemental and Kat going all Guyver Mecha Bird Lady.
>> No. 224951
Spending millions of years encased in rock sounds incredibly boring, and reason enough to experience new things. Being so absurdly old means that there are few new things for you, so I think she appreciates humans creating new crap.

Plus, there is a "why the hell not" factor going on. If there is no risk involved for her, and she is not losing any time doing these stunts (literally having all the time in the world), then why not?
>> No. 224955
You're forgetting that this is Jones we're talking about here. She can't feel bored. Or excited. Or much of anything. I don't see why she would want to be standing directly underneath a bomb when it goes off. If she was curious about how powerful they are, she could just stand around and watch them explode.
>> No. 224959
> If she was curious about how powerful they are, she could just stand around and watch them explode.

Why would she do that, if standing right there in the ground zero would give her a better view and pose no risk to her?

Whoa there Jonesy, what are you planning to do?
>> No. 225203
I find the fact that he specifies that Mort has died early to be somewhat odd. Is there a way to determine the time of every person's death? Is that a prediction, or a plan? And how could Jones's actions not be factored into that determination?
>> No. 225204
She's not of this earth so maybe not of its "grand design" maybe?

An argument could be made that Jones is the most "of this this earth" being in existence.

He hasn't even realized he's dead yet. I wouldn't really say he's ready to pass on.
>> No. 225342
Apparently a lot of people don't realize they've passed on. Recall that flashback chapter where Little Annie helped out that boy? That doesn't earn you a job as a ghost, it just means you might need some outside help.

Also, "unfair and unjust?" Jones, if you're going to take issue with every death you deem unfair and unjust, I'm afraid you're going to have your hands full. People die. Kids die. This happens often, and for every reason imaginable. The fact that Mort died trying to help someone (especially someone who needed no help) is tragic, but of little consequence in regard to what should happen to him.
>> No. 225345

She cares because Mort died because of her if it happened to be some other random woman, then she might not care but she unintentionally caused a misunderstanding that lead to somebody's death.
>> No. 225347
you can have compassion for particular cases near to you without being a stretched-thin saint, though
>> No. 225349
It makes sense that she feels responsible and is trying to do something, but she's acting like the fact that he died because of her is reason in and of itself to award him some kind of special provisions (and Dracula here seems to accept that reasoning). I know she tries to stay out of human events as much as possible, but she must know that she affects those around here. She's lived with humans for as long as there have been humans with which to live. This can't be the first time her presence has impacted someone else in a major way.

Everyone also seems to be making the assumption that being a ghost is better than the alternative. I mean, it's not like they're bringing him back to life, and it's not like there's much of a future in haunting one room for who knows how long. Nobody's even asking his opinion on the matter.
>> No. 225350
Dying while trying to save a normal person is one thing, dying to save Jones is something completely different.

She has obviously seen a lot of people die for probably every reason imaginable. The fact that she can still be upset about one boy's death and feels guilty about luring him into it says a lot about her character. Jones isn't nearly as emotionless as she believes herself to be, she does have a moral compass, and even after literal eons, witnessing senseless death still gets to her.
>> No. 225354
Am I the only person interested in exactly how the Court was assisting the war effort, as Jones pointed out?

>> No. 225361
Yeah, that also picked up my attention.
Maybe we can even get a glimpse of artilleryman's descendants!!

File 139584421295.jpg - (163.31KB , 600x849 , 00001332.jpg )
Is anyone else kind of bothered by how easily this is all going down? Mort learns that he's dead and just runs with it. I kind of doubt that'd be how your typical kid would react.
>> No. 225411
Gotta speed things along I guess. Get back to Annie and Kat leading him to the threshold of the afterlife
>> No. 225412
I can absolutely believe this because the ramifications wouldn't dawn on him, he's a kid in the blitz, they are used to not questioning orders and doing as instructed.

To me it seems like a kid whose thinking "My job is to be a ghost, cool!"
>> No. 225413
Wonder if we'll see a page of him going through the states when it dawns on him and that he's been waiting for a guide that never came.
>> No. 225458
I'd imagine it's something like dying in the Discworld books. You're no longer connected to an adrenal gland or tear ducts, so even if you're shocked and upset, it's muted.

Mind you, I'm trying to remember the kid that Anne helped to cross over...

>> No. 225474

I'm pretty sure he's understood that his guide did come for him, but Jones stepped in the way. I don't think he's mad though. He's tired of it, hence why he's asking Annie to guide him.
>> No. 225475
Fortunately we are not seeing all this heart-to-heart with Kat's POV, just picture that scene with all the silly cheap surroundings.

Kat's powers of carnivalization apparently don't work on the Grim Reaper. I wonder if she's still in his jurisdiction, despite ascending to demigodhood. Or maybe we read too much into it and Kat doesn't have any powers at all and the RotD appears differently to everyone who enters it, depending on their personality and expectations.
>> No. 225575
This isn't the first time Kat has seen one of the guides. Judging by her reaction to seeing Muut, I'm guessing she saw him as we see him. Guides apparently don't work for the ROTD.

I like how Ankou just has fog billowing behind him wherever he goes.
>> No. 225592
Could Kat be seeing something a lot worse then they are maybe?

Also will Mort take off his "ghost" form when he gets to the gate or whatever at the end?
>> No. 225595
After an hour in Spooky Stanley's House of Horrors, seeing a genuine grim reaper would freak you out somewhat. I think her reaction is natural for anyone in her situation.
>> No. 225626
The guides most likely have no bullshit embellishment whatsoever, they are the WYSIWYG of the supernatural. Ankou IS a grimass reaper, Muut IS a huge native dude with owl head and feet, and so on. You can't see them as something different.

Make sense, since they have to be fully recognizable for the customers.

And Kat would see that as it actually is with either a trap door dropping him out of sight or him just hiding behind a pillar as the creaky rubber bat toddles along on a line. So the Arrows purpose seems to be a lot more sinister than previously thought.
