Next time, on El Goonish Shive: The explanation for what the heck even.
Well, I mean, enough information to get what sort of happened on a fundamental level in regard to how Grace wound up the Hero of Ranged. The technical specifics, like... Heck, I don't even know those. How would you make a dream situation like this?
I don't know. You don't know. Nobody knows! If someone knew, it would be the basis for the next generation of game systems, but no! We're not getting weird shared dream nightmare machines of doom, are we? No! We're getting basically what we have now, but more powerful, and with different Spider-Man faces!
Anyway, yeah, why Grace is the ranged hero: Soon. Also, me ranting: SOON.
