A Quick Question
« on: July 22, 2013, 02:29:50 AM »

So... I've seen in several places now that Tally's city is by what used to be Seattle, and that the Rusty Ruins are Seattle. But, in Bogus to Bubbly, it looked like it was in California, and in the graphic novel, you'd think the Space Needle would kinda stand out, but it's not there. So, where did the idea that Tally's city s by Seattle come from?

The Space Needle? It does? Argh, I really need to buy my own copy :-\ I checked it out from the library before and now I'm forgetting everything :(

It seems like in the graphic novels, though, the Space Needle would be pretty obvious...

...? It's right by the Rusty Ruins... and if the Rusty Ruins are Seattle, wouldn't she be able to see it?

Is it? Huh. Well, even then, they go to the 'tallest tower' don't they? Which would be the Space Needle for sure. But even then, it definitely doesn't look like the Space Needle.

Well by then if the whole city is in ruins I don't exactly think the needle would still be there...
