[[WMG: Rocky will beat Wes to death with a shovel]]
Supplemental art has shown Rocky holding a bloody shovel. In addition to the [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=424 Lackadaisy card]] mentioned above, [[http://www.lackadaisycats.com/exhibit.php?exhibitid=397 "Lackadaisy Moonshine"]] shows Rocky holding a shovel and sitting on a gravestone. Marigolds emanate from the grave, suggesting that Rocky killed a Marigold thug. Since volume 3 of the comic seems to be leading up to a confrontation between Wes, Rocky, and Freckle, what if these art pieces are foreshadowing Rocky's murder of Wes?

\n** I'm not so sure; the way Rocky phrased it, he said the incident had ''an'' author, but that he signed his name, specifically avoiding confirming nor denying if he was truly responsible. Perhaps he was partially responsible, but he stepped up and took full blame to make sure Freckle got none.

*** Do be fair, though, what counts as "mundane" in a city of gangsters and bootleggers?

And maybe even be on the opposing side. Also, why not draw a parallel between the Heller siblings and the Savoy siblings?

\n**Well, from what we see in flashbacks, he was a little odd but not by much and, according to Tracy, he was first got involved in the underworld when he was 13.

\n**Maybe not but, however, some bits and pieces hint that she had a hand in it, if not just aware of any key points about it.





to:

**Actually, that would be Jossed, as Tracy said Calvin's dad of "something mundane".





to:

\n**Well, there were imitation jewels back then, so it's plausible

[[WMG: The Maitre Carrefour cult is involved in the drug trade.]]

The Maitre Carrefour cult sustains itself by selling drugs and is seeking a new market in St. Louis. [[http://lackadaisycats.tumblr.com/post/126668968678/tracy-what-is-the-name-of-the-one-who-does-not Archie]] was silently staring into space for the entirety of the fete scene because he was high on one of the cult's products. At the end of volume 2, Mordecai was groggy because the cult used one of the drugs at its disposal to incapacitate him during his involuntary scarification. Serafine might consume a hallucinogen or deliriant when she wishes to channel Maitre Carrefour.

[[folder: Character Deaths]]

[[WMG: Either Wick, Mordecai or Viktor are going to be killed in the future.]]
[[WordOfGod Tracy]] recently confirmed on her forum that one of the main characters is going to die, so here are some possible victims (Feel free to add some more):
* Viktor: A retired badass who has been wounded several times and has a heartwarming relationship with the local GenkiGirl? He might as well have a bullseye on his back.
** But does it ''really'' seem likely to have the handicapped badass who physically suffers the most killed?
* Mordecai: Yes, we know he is one of the most skillful killers in the whole comic, but that's exactly the point. ''No one would expect him to die''.
** He does seem to be discovering something curious, even ominous.
* Wick: [[TooGoodForThisSinfulEarth The guy is just too darn nice to live.]]
** Or the events of [[TheGreatDepression October 1929]] would only give him [[DrivenToSuicide one choice]].
* Zib: [[TooCoolToLive The guy is]] ''[[TooCoolToLive way too smooth]]''. Plus, his dying would have a major effect on fellow characters, leading to loads of CharacterDevelopment.
** I agree. His death ''would'' lead to a load of repercussions, and I could see him dying as a way to move the plot forward.
** I would disagree. His dying would serve little to no plot purpose on its own. Perhaps it would be a symptom of a greater abandonment of Lackadaisy's past, but frankly, I think it's unlikely that Zib would be the victim of Tracy's pen.
*** Little to no plot purpose...''yet''.
** Given his recent development and focus, including his realizing that they're circling the drain and it's a matter of going down with the ship or not... ''yeeeeah'', I'm worried for him too.
* Aunt Nina: Not necessarily through violence, but losing her would hit poor Freckle ''hard''.
** Strongly disagree. I mean, can you really see this happening?
** Also, didn't Tracy say one of the ''main'' characters would die? Aunt Nina isn't a main character at all.
* Ivy: God, I ''[[PoisonOakEpilepticTrees hope not]]'', but... [[KillTheCutie killing this cutie]] would [[BreakTheCutie break the]] ''hell'' out of Calvin, not to mention just about everyone else.
* Rocky: You talk about somebody nobody expects to die? How about the CrazyAwesome master of the IndyPloy? The guy we've been [[SacrificialLion following from the start]]? The one who gets in ''waaaaayyyy'' over his head time after time, yet always seems to weasel his way out?
* Mitzi. She seems to be slipping somewhat, mental-health-wise, and her attempts to keep the speakeasy running are starting to border on obsession. She even scares Zib with the lengths she is willing to go to just to keep a necklace her husband gave her. My bet is that she's going to die a tragic death, and that will be the end of the Lackadaisy.
** Nah. It doesn't seem likely ''both'' the Lackadaisy spouses (Atlas and Mitzi) would end up dead.
** That's why it would make such an impact. Plus, something like this would catapult either Ivy or Rocky into a potential leadership role in the business, much like Mitzi herself was forced to step up when Atlas died. Both of these characters are developing in interesting ways recently...they might be being build up for the catastrophe that would be Mitzi somehow being incapacitated.
* Lacey. It's a perfect business strategy; Wick wouldn't be able to financially function without her. Killing her off would probably enable somebody to get their paws on his money without his even knowing about it, possibly bankrupting him in the process. Let's just hope that the person potentially killing her is not involved with the Lackadaisy crew.


[[WMG: Whoever killed Atlas will be the one to die]]
Possibly by way of being murdered themselves. The story would go full-circle, it'd implement poetic justice, and [[BittersweetEnding maybe it'd end on a light note, at least.]]


[[WMG: Rocky will beat Mordecai to death with a shovel.]]
In a recent picture, Rocky's wearing Mordecai's suit, and blood stains are on the shovel he is holding.

[[WMG: Serafine and Nicodeme will kill Asa.]]
Serafine and Nicodeme will decide that there's more money to be made in running the Marigold than in working as thugs, so they'll kill Asa Sweet and assume control of his business. The Marigold's old guard will be killed en masse and replaced with the criminals who make up the Maitre Carrefour cult. Mordecai will either (1) assist them in this endeavor, (2) reluctantly join them once the deed is done, or (3) refuse to participate and go on the run.

[[WMG: Mordecai will kill Nicodeme to get revenge on Serafine.]]
After the ordeal he endured at the Maitre Carrefour cult gathering, Mordecai will seek revenge on Serafine. Mordecai will not target Serafine directly. Rather, he will kill Nicodeme because he knows that nothing he could do to Serafine could traumatize her as much as losing her brother.

[[folder: Romance]]

[[WMG:[[EvilIsSexy Serafine]] and [[AxCrazy Mordecai]] will have some UST between each other]]
From what I have seen so far from each other is that Mordecai can't stand working with his new partners and I have a feeling that Serafine would tease him and tell him what a killjoy he is.
* Nothing like a little one-sided FoeYay between colleagues, eh?

[[WMG: Viktor and Elsa are…close friends]]
Any perceived innuendo for the term “close friends” is intentional. Yes it’s implied that she’s married to Bobby, but so far it stands as just that, an implication, it’s not out right confirmed. She seems awfully interested when Ivy mentions Viktor, and both of them served in the war (him a soldier, her a nurse). Yes, I am indeed stretching thin anything even resembling logic, but that’s what WMG’s are for.
** When Elsa tells Ivy about how Viktor protected her family, we see a flashback of Viktor loading a shotgun on the Arborgast's front porch, as Elsa looks on intently. It's not difficult to interpret Elsa's gaze as romantic.
** OP here, and Elsa and Bobby are officially married, so if there is anything going on, its not exactly kosher.


[[WMG: Elsa and Viktor do have history together, but...]]
It's ancient history: pre-war and pre-Bobby. She is the one that got away.
** They also have some UnresolvedSexualTension going on.
*** It’s said that Viktor turned against his own country to fight for the good old U.S of A, maybe Elsa had something to do with that?


[[WMG: Mitzi really ''did'' love Atlas...]]
...But he didn't really love her. He only married her because he needed her for something (a spy, a coverup, a worker, something like that). It'd make her devotion to him all the more tragic.



[[WMG: The Savoys Will have Main/IncestSubtext.]]
Because why the fuck not?


[[WMG: Mordecai and Zulie will become romantically involved.]]
{{Word of God}} states that Mordecai's asexuality is either his natural orientation or self-imposed. If the latter is the case, Mordecai may be capable of feeling attraction, but he suppresses it in favor of celibacy. When the Savoys introduced Mordecai to the Maitre Carrefour devotees, Zulie seemed very fond of him. What if her charms could convince him to reconsider his celibate lifestyle?


[[WMG: the next guy Ivy dates will be named "[[ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes Hobbes]]."]]
* Don't look at me that way, you were all thinking it.
** Nah. Her last four boyfriends have had names starting with "C".
** Maybe his ''real'' name will begin with C, and he'll just have Hobbes as a nickname. Or vice-versa, like Calvin's nickname is Freckle.
* ''Are you serious.''
** ''Why the hell not.''

[[WMG: Zib starts crossdressing when drunk.]]
Don't know how canon the mini comics may be, but in one he was wearing heels off-page. In another, he had lipstick smeared on his face, and when he asks, Mitzi says he put it on himself. Both comics seem to have taken place after he was intoxicated.

[[folder: The Maitre Carrefour Cult]]

[[WMG: Zib starts crossdressing Mordecai will undermine Serafine's Voodoo ritual]]

{{Word of God}} is that Serafine is a ''poseur'' rather than an authentic Voodoo practitioner. Mordecai will find ways to poke holes in the rituals she uses to captivate her devotees, such as provoking a ''chwal'' to show that s/he isn't really possessed by Maitre Carrefour, or providing evidence that the Savoys have abused the devotee's trust. Mordecai will have his revenge
when drunk.]]
Don't know how canon
the mini comics may be, but devotees turn on the Savoys.


[[WMG: All Maitre Carrefour devotees receive a scar as an initiation rite.]]

When Serafine forcibly lacerated Mordecai's chest, it wasn't because he refused to join her cult. All Maitre Carrefour devotees receive a scar
in one he was wearing heels off-page. In another, he had lipstick smeared on his face, the shape of a wheel with eight spokes, willingly or unwillingly.


[[WMG: Zulie is secretly in charge of the Maitre Carrefour cult.]]

Zulie created the cult so that she could control a lucrative criminal enterprise through superstition
and when he asks, Mitzi says he put it on himself. Both comics seem religious devotion. She passes herself off as an ordinary devotee of the cult to have taken place deflect attention away from herself. Behind the scenes, she's calling the shots. She employs Serafine to masquerade as the cult's leader because Serafine's theatrical skill and familiarity with Voodoo are perfect for attracting followers ... and so that Serafine, not she, will be the chief target if enemies attack the cult.


[[WMG: Serafine and Nico lied about their backstory.]]

Serafine and Nico were never orphaned as children, never sent to a Catholic orphanage, and never adopted by Maman Eulalie
after he was intoxicated.

running away from the orphanage. They concocted the story to gain sympathy from their followers and provide Voodoo credentials for the Maitre Carrefour cult. In reality, they were raised by their biological parents, with whom they still keep in touch. Someone will undermine the Maitre Carrefour cult by alerting devotees to the fact that the Savoy's parents are still alive.

[[folder: The Criminal Underworld]]













[[WMG: The Marigold is involved in something bigger than just bootlegging (and the illicit activities related to it).]]

* On [[http://lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=73 this page]], Mordecai tells us about the Marigold acting like there’s a thorn in their side despite the lack of competition in town. It also shows us a flashback where the guy that Mordecai killed with the hatchet is attempting to escape. Serafine calls him a mouthpiece, which is old time slang for a criminal lawyer. Now, why would a speakeasy go after a lawyer, especially one that has no idea what it was he did wrong?
* On [[http://lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=107 this page]], Dom Drago, who works with the Treasury Department, asks Zib if he is on the Marigold’s payroll, then states that he’s not going to bust Zib because he has “bigger fish to fry”.

[[WMG: The Marigold is rooting out traitors.]]

Dom Drago's notes mention a "G.G.", which strongly implies that he was in contact with Gracie. Gracie was providing information on the Marigold gang to law enforcement, but he wasn't the only member of the criminal underground to do so. What if the Marigold's "aggressive spring cleaning" involves killing stool pigeons who could get the whole operation in trouble with the law?

For added drama, what if the Maitre Carrefour cult has an informant among their ranks? Now that Serafine and Nico are working for the Marigold gang, and now that Serafine is forcing Mordecai to join the cult, an informant could help law enforcement make a case connecting the cult to Marigold. Both groups could go down in flames if the traitors aren't discovered.

[[WMG: Zib starts crossdressing when drunk.]]
Don't know how canon the mini comics may be, but in one he was wearing heels off-page. In another, he had lipstick smeared on his face, and when he asks, Mitzi says he put it on himself. Both comics seem to have taken place after he was intoxicated.




[[WMG: The Marigold is involved in something bigger than just bootlegging (and the illicit activities related to it).]]
* On [[http://lackadaisycats.com/comic.php?comicid=73 this page]], Mordecai tells us about the Marigold acting like there’s a thorn in their side despite the lack of competition in town. It also shows us a flashback where the guy that Mordecai killed with the hatchet is attempting to escape. Serafine calls him a mouthpiece, which is old time slang for a criminal lawyer.

[[WMG: Mordecai will undermine Serafine's Voodoo ritual]]

{{Word of God}} is that Serafine is a ''poseur'' rather than an authentic Voodoo practitioner. Mordecai will find ways to poke holes in the rituals she uses to captivate her devotees, such as provoking a ''chwal'' to show that s/he isn't really possessed by Maitre Carrefour, or providing evidence that the Savoys have abused the devotee's trust. Mordecai will have his revenge when the devotees turn on the Savoys.

[[WMG: All Maitre Carrefour devotees receive a scar as an initiation rite.]]

When Serafine forcibly lacerated Mordecai's chest, it wasn't because he refused to join her cult. All Maitre Carrefour devotees receive a scar in the shape of a wheel with eight spokes, willingly or unwillingly.

[[WMG: Zulie is secretly in charge of the Maitre Carrefour cult.]]

Zulie created the cult so that she could control a lucrative criminal enterprise through superstition and religious devotion. She passes herself off as an ordinary devotee of the cult to deflect attention away from herself. Behind the scenes, she's calling the shots. She employs Serafine to masquerade as the cult's leader because Serafine's theatrical skill and familiarity with Voodoo are perfect for attracting followers ... and so that Serafine, not she, will be the chief target if enemies attack the cult.



[[WMG: The Marigold is rooting out traitors.]]

Dom Drago's notes mention a "G.G.", which strongly implies that he was in contact with Gracie. Gracie was providing information on the Marigold gang to law enforcement, but he wasn't the only member of the criminal underground to do so. What if the Marigold's "aggressive spring cleaning" involves killing stool pigeons who could get the whole operation in trouble with the law?

For added drama, what if the Maitre Carrefour cult has an informant among their ranks? Now that Serafine and Nico are working for the Marigold gang, and now that Serafine is forcing Mordecai to join the cult, an informant could help law enforcement make a case connecting the cult to Marigold. Both groups could go down in flames if the traitors aren't discovered.

[[WMG: Serafine and Nico lied about their backstory.]]

Serafine and Nico were never orphaned as children, never sent to a Catholic orphanage, and never adopted by Maman Eulalie after running away from the orphanage. They concocted the story to gain sympathy from their followers and provide Voodoo credentials for the Maitre Carrefour cult. In reality, they were raised by their biological parents, with whom they still keep in touch. Someone will undermine the Maitre Carrefour cult by alerting devotees to the fact that the Savoy's parents are still alive.

Rocky mentions his dad as "working on the railroad" and some of his letters to Calvin implies that at least for a while, Rocky and his father had some sort of correspondence before the replies stopped coming. Chain gangs were occasionally used as cheap labor to lay railroads, and the fact that Rocky, at least for a while, was able to send letters to his dad implies that Rocky knew where he was, such as if Ransom were in prison. The fact that he stopped responding to Rocky's letters could mean he died, stopped caring to write...or escaped, which means he may turn up at some point in the series.....besides, with a name like [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Ransom]], how can he NOT be a hardened criminal?
