This comic is honestly not in the mystery genre, but it sure does have a lot of mysteries.

Ya know, it's been so long since they talked about the gate that I almost forgot Ethan was from Earth, XD

OK. that answers a question.

Hmmm... so then... going through the red gate adds some subconscious knowledge to a person's mind? It's the only way I can imagine. Ethan's question about "like about dragons" is IMHO a quite valid one.

Edit: Added the quotation marks, it looks like making more sense now, hope the edit didn't change/skew the sense.

Can't confirm nor deny, but that's a solid line of reasoning!

"Everyone talks to themselves. We're just better at it."
LOL! As a creator I find that to be very true!
Here's one I did on the subject. Bricks

You know, my characters don't actually talk to me...! I'm good friends with another writer whose characters almost constantly do that to her, though. It seems to me like a type thing, like a pantser/ planner/ plantser type thing.

There has to be more to it than that. Surely not every human (at least from Ethan's world of origin) has met their inner Red Gater, right? Otherwise this sort of thing should be common knowledge. At the very least you would think Nopsae might have mentioned it. Ethan must be a special case somehow.

I do wonder, though, if Ethan's dad had a similar experience to this. I'm starting to wonder if the guy the arborist was talking about before Ethan saw the dead dragons might have actually been his father. But if that were the case, they probably would have noted a certain family resemblence, I guess? So my theory could be waaaay wrong.

(PS I also had a quietly held running theory that Hoodie Kid is the child of Mother Queen and Father King, just appearing in metaphysical form because he hasn't been born yet, and bringing Ethan to Keol was part of his agenda because Ethan arrival is what tips the first domino toward his eventual conception. I guess I can call that theory quashed.)

Not every Earth human is a (prospective/dormant or otherwise) Red Gater! Only some have the potential. How common or rare it is, though, who knows.

Still, every person from Earth who has made it to Keol has to be a Red Gater, so it seems plausible that Nopsae would know about this. :o Last time Ethan was about to ask her about that (back when she'd just handed over the M&Ms to Lu, after their arrow-grabbing match), an ill-timed burst of powers interrupted him.

I'm also a proponent of the theory that the person the arborist was talking about was Ethan's father.

> they probably would have noted a certain family resemblence, I guess?

Not necessarily, for one, Ethan's father was much smaller than Ethan.

Also - and please believe me that I don't mean this in a racist way but as an observation: For me, Asian people have a greater similarity to each other than, say, Germans *handwave* I could go into more detail but it's beside the point, if this works the other way round, too: Most humans around Ethat are/were Koreans. If they are aware of this similarity thing, they might miss a family resemblance exactly because of it. Just an idea. Which of course requires that Keiiii knows the effect and has it intergrated into the story. And now it's a Theory. :D
