I’m curious, who actually wants to have the series explained and who will let their experience with the series stay with their own personal interpretation?
As a fan of the book, I’d love to know what your final plans would have been were you able to tell the story in its entirety. When shows/movies leave things up to your own interpretation (the briefcase in Pulp Fiction, the ending of Twin Peaks, the ending of Lost, what Bill Murray whispers to Scarlett Johannsen, etc.) it’s never quite the same as having the writer tell you the whole thing.
I want to know!
I think part of the fun is comparing what we think and the actual explanation of Green Wake. Also – if we never find out we can we say we were right!
I am all for hearing your plans for the series, an insight into the inner workings of Green Wake would be amazing. Besides, regardless of anything revealed or uncovered Green Wake will always say different things to us all, with the only uniting factor being Green Wake was one hell of tale.
As a reader, I’d rather be left to my own interpretation. After all, finding meaning for yourself is one of the most entertaining aspects of reading comics, books or any other kind of fiction piece.
However, as a writer, I’m ravenously curious about the word you’ve built and how it ties to the characters you’ve created and the dark twisting plots you weaved. It’s a process thing and I can’t resist a good process explanation!
I want to know but I’m not sure that I want to be told. You’ve done so well straddling that line between clues and answers thus far that a blatant spelling out of meanings would be a little bit of a let down, however a lack of any more information would be too. I think the best bet would be to tell us exactly what you would have were the comic to continue, and in exactly as clear – or unclear – a fashion. Giving us the final few clues and some context then leaving us to figure them out seems ideal.
That only goes for mythos though, character work on the other hand can be as specific as you like; I don’t see any harm in spelling out exactly what happens to the people.
That’s what I think anyway, but you’re the writer, you’ve proven that you know what you’re doing in this field so I have faith that you’ll be able to deliver this in the second best way possible.
