Hey guys, i've been looking at these boards and I did notice one of the plotlines that was altered was Branigan discovering about Fabletown.
I heard some rumours/i speculate that accoridng to the canon of Willingham's work it wouldn't make much sense....but let me ask a question.
What gives Fabletown the right to hide itself from ALL of Mundy society?
The Fables are all refugees of war who then proceed to come to our world and hide from the Adversary. They bring along all kinds of dangerious individuals (Even Bigby ate a few people when he came over) along with them and dangerious magical artefacts.
If we look at another Urban Fantasy tale, The Harry Potter series, at least some portion of the Muggle goverment knows about magic and they were properly warned about Voldemort. What happend to NY when the adversary send in a legion of wooden soldiers or what about Mr Dark when he popped up? Yeah, folks got killed. Including babies!
I'm not saying the Fables should publicly announce their existance to the world but wouldnt it make things a lot easier if a similar relationship between the Ministry of Magic and the Goverment exists between Fabletown and the White House?
The US Army knows about Bigby Wolf and during the first World Wars he was part of their Black Ops team.
Another Question I would like to ask how much of the stories we know happend in our world?
For example the children that Peter Pan took along, Alice and Wonderland, Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz...are those mundies coming over from our world and came to the Homelands?
We also know that the tale of Frankenstein DID happen, the head of the monster is actually in the buisiness office so you can argue they are stealing from mundies now, as did the tale of Dracula, Bigby and Dracul were best buds aparantly according to Wolf in the Fold.
So what are your two cents on this?
