Spoiled? Do you mean this will officially be told in the final installment?

Got it covered!

Ahh, I got it now. And now I'm sad. Because I didn't know Story Time was a thing and now they're all sold out.
I ended up finding the answer anyhow. Didn't like it, though.

I can't wait for the graphic novels!

Can anyone identify if this in particular is the theme to Ms. Leading? Or if this little riff represents Hunter & Leading together?
- Smiling Swine
- Red Hands
- Black Sandy Beaches
- Vital Vessle Vindicates
- In Cauda Venenum
- This Beautiful Life
- Father (2X)
- Is There Anybody Here?
Does anyone else think that perhaps Ms. Leading set the Fire, or at least helped to do so and is now set to escape with Hunter/The Son? Did she perhaps die in the fire, no matter who set the blaze, as foretold in Act II's "Blood of the Rose" (She'll die in a baptism of fire)
Anyone think that Casey's spoken desire to redeem Ms. Leading might have come to fruition in this album?
If so, where does she reenter the scene in Act IV? What does she do in Act V? Could she perhaps have become pregnant with a child during Act II and then during Melpomene/Light we see Hunter reunite with Ms. Leading and then take on the role of being a father? Does Hunter finally see a chance at a redemptive family life and then enlist his Lover Ms. Leading to help burn down the dime and kill the PP?
Who dies at the end? Leading? Hunter? PP? All three?

Got the scoop from my roommate who attended the St. Louis Story Time. I don't think anyone will be dissatisfied. That's all I'll say until after the tour! If you haven't checked out Eisley or Gavin Castelton, please do so, I was absolutely blown away by both opening sets. I've seen the Dear Hunter five times (n00b, I know) and I have to say this tour presents the best pairing of openers I've seen yet!

For realz. I've picked up on a few snippets here and there of some of what's happened at these Story Time discussions, and it's been pretty epic. Can't wait 'til this stuff makes it way into the broader conversations.

Also spoiler'd for your visual pleasure (i.e. my essay taking up your whole screen is not okay)

One thing I haven't read much on is who exactly the Oracles are. How do they know so much about Hunter? Are they human? I sort of envision them like apparitions in a way. Not just like three dudes in suits.
Also, doesn't it seem odd that Hunter goes from hearing an officer talk about a prostitute that is described similarly to his mother to somehow "knowing" that man is his father? His mother was a prostitute so any number of men slept with her and could be his father. Why would he jump to the conclusion that this man is actually his father? Does the man maybe give more details? Maybe he mentions that he got her pregnant and last he heard she went off and gave birth to their son. So maybe it's more than just him describing a prostitute that makes Hunter believe it's his father.

I envision them as ghostly dudes in suits. And oracles are inherently all knowing, hence the title.
It's supposed to be implied in Son and Father. I think there's only so much you can reasonably fit into lyrics and make them still cohesive.
