I have to admit, even knowing Zintiel as she is now, the contrast in atmosphere between panels 2 and 3 is disturbing.

Woops! What gives?

Falingard, you forgot a couple of panels between panels 2 and 3!

It's kind of weird how my heart was pounding for one reason, then pounding for a totally different reason the next moment. Gah! WTF?! Holy moly.

So this is the moment when Zintiel slipped over the line...

am I the only one who thinks Zinny looked really scary on the 2nd panel
absolutely emotionless
the 3rd panel is actually way less creepy
also, I suspect it's her own blood on the walls

I'm getting a faint, disturbing feeling from those Wheel-like symbols she's painted. Like something I half-remember. I think I'd better set some time aside for archive-diving.

Yes! The same symbols showed up on Lady Doom Fury and one of her minions. (Interesting how Lady Doom looks a lot like Zintiel, eh? Almost as if a Zintiel from the future came to the past to influence events...)

One thing I noticed: in panel 2, Zintiel is looking directly at us, breaking the fourth wall. This is unusual for the Flaky-verse. From what we can see of the room around her in comics 511 & 512, our panel 2 point-of-view is the mirror on the table in front of her looking at Zintiel as Zintiel looks into the mirror. Panel 2 is not Z looking at her reflection-- the blurred wardrobe in panel 2 is behind Z's right shoulder: a mirror image would have it on her left.

So. I'm betting that this flashback will end here, leaving us in suspense. Now is the time for all good fans to speculate wildly! Maybe Lady Doom or several of her minions are about to jump out of the mirror and abduct Zintiel. Z gets taken, but not without a fight (smashing the furniture). A surviving minion paints the wheel-symbols on the wall, collects the casualties and Zintiel, and leaves.

Too ludicrous? Any thoughts?

Well, so much for my dumb theory about Zintiel's "abduction."

I should have given her more credit-- Zintiel is about the last person in the Flakyverse to be a damsel-in-distress.

Distressing, yes. Damsel IN distress, not bloody likely.
