Question:OMG how are you weathering the wait for Wicdiv #2???? I AM MELTING. Like I want them to take all the time they need to make something as glorious as the first issue but at the same time I AM IN DIRE NEED OF IT RIGHT THIS VERY SECOND. Also I'm trying to figure out if two of the three gods and goddesses yet to be awakened could be Cassandra and Laura? Like what a fucking twist would it be if Cassandra woke up and knew she was Quetzalcoatl or something. But I think Gillen also wants (cont.) - ravenclawairbender
(pt. 2) “token mortal characters” so maybe this is just a shot in the dark. ^_^
Hello! Omg I understand you so much! I have a strong love/hate relationship with cliffhangers and since I absolutely loved Luci, I’m dying to know what happens next!!
My guess? I’m almost sure Laura will be the one of the goddesses, considering Amateratsu’s pointing her out on the crowd and Luci’s sudden niceness to her when she woke up. Considering Gillen’s said Laura’s meant to introduce us to this whole world dynamics, I’d probably assume she’s gonna turn out to be a goddess and therefore bring on the whole introductions, rules, etc.
Cassandra, on the other hand, I feel like is meant to remain an outsider, giving us looks of what this whole deal looks like to normal people. Considering Gillen said on his writer’s notes that he’d first intended to just have her on one issue, I highly doubt she’d turn out to be one of the gods (as amazingly of an ironic twist that’d make!)
Anyway, this are my predictions and I wouldn’t be surprised if Gillen turned it all around and proved me wrong, though.
[Also the fact that you mentioned Quetzalcoatl as a possible Cassandra identity is so amazing because he’s definitively one of my favorite deities from my culture!!!]
