I really don't think "Oh dear" quite covers it, in this circumstance.
Really doesn't matter which side the Proconsul is or was on, does it? Nero is dead, there's a bit of a power vacuum, and we have an incredibly angry Tribune and father, who is not only quite upset, but complements his upsetness with a large number of armed men.

In need to sit down now, and have a drink! Something strong!:confused:
With you, old boy!!!

Well, it's the sort of thing "they" would say, isn't it? Shouldn't go around believing "them" all the time, especially when "they" are so bent that they'd crucify a couple of respectable Roman girls. (Perhaps, before he kills everyone in the town, and consigns the Proconsul's parts most private to a Rutland tree, daddy could stop talking for a moment and get the girls down, eh?)

Anyway, it would appear that things are going to get a bit messy for some people. I wonder if Josephine has noticed anything yet, or if she's still celebrating what might be her last birthday?

Have I complimented you yet, Wragg, on what is an admirable plot twist, just as I thought it was as good as it could get? How remiss of me.
My compliments. :clapping::clapping::clapping::clapping::clapping::clapping::clapping:

Oh yes! I think I remember this part...! :D
Although I don't remember a character called General Riffraff...
But this is an excellent performance by a slightly stunned Cassia - and a superb close up of her, complete with suitably dishevelled hair.

A somewhat embarrassing reunion for Cassia - and also for her Dad, if he's forgotten the hacksaw and pliers! Notwithstanding the practicalities, I think they need a moment of father-daughter bonding after such an evidently long time. This resurrection thing is becoming quite popular by the look of it... :D

Fantastic plotting, twisting and skull-digging, Wragg! :clapping:

Haha, I strongly considered heading that last post with 'Darth Vader moment'! :rolleyes:

And if Tribune Niger is expecting to be showered with praises from a grateful daughter, he may be in for a disappointment.

Anyway, glad you liked it, thanks everyone for the kind words! :)

Well, I suspect that even if Cassia has issues with her absentee father, she'll be happy to be off the cross. I hope they take Jasmine down as well. I suspect the Tribune is at least partially hoping the Proconsul will try something, in a sort of "Make my day!" sort of way.
Very effective use of close-up shots to move the action along. Riveting stuff here. :)
Also, it's worth considering that you may be one of the only people at CF to ever manip images of people being removed from the cross. :D

Cassie is coming down, and party girl is probably going up. Wragg, you keep us guessing.

Certainly not common, I know of a few drawings and far fewer manips. The best one I've seen is probably this one by Cypher.
