Else? What the hey–?
I’m not sure if I need to link back to this, but for those who would like the reminder, Chapter Five is where Patty suffered the fracture.
Oh oh… weird alien infection = not good!
Is this the cliff-hanger for this story-line? Or is Tara going to throw us poor readers one more morsel of information before whisking us away to Scavina…
Ah, that explains it, the Rautani are actually zombies. One little bite and…
If that were the case wouldn’t Patty have been fussed over by the locals to ensure she was “clean” and not carrying the whateveritis? [If she picks up a hoe or rake they will KNOW !!!!!]
I doubt the infection was from the Rautani. More likely, it was the “butterfly” at the start of chapter 4. The one that Patty thought was a mosquito…
Anything…else? What the french toast is she talking about? Like did Patty have time to swap spit with the Rautani before they pummeled her?
I have no idea where this is going.
I think this is the anything else.
Heh, I knew they should have been wearing full containment suits until they were sure there wasn’t anything dire.
Oohhhh…I completely forgot about that (and I shouldn’t have because I JUST read that in the GN). Best case scenario, she has a funky, terrible infection. Worst case she turns into a giant moth thing (which would be totally cool).
So why don’t they just take her back? Waiting on the General could very well kill her. Or turn her into a giant moth creature.
So why don’t they just take her back?
Good Question! The answer is a complicated one, due to the distance to their shuttle-craft from where they are now (if its even still there, or hasn’t been moved or destroyed by the Ugly, Rude, Hostile Garden People Tribe) plus there is no communication with the Galaxion, plus they really don’t know what the threat is on this planet, or if their exposure has contaminated them. In that case there would be stringent IP protocols to be followed, and I can imagine that “contact team” could also mean “expendable, write-off personnel.”
Butterflies are not enough. More complications! A bear must chase them (which just happens to be wearing a Sikh hat and paddling a canoe)!
I cannot wait till the story gets back to the Galaxion and they bring the Wave Motion Cannon to bear upon the enemy armada. (I can wish for this.)
Well…. since you ask… in an earlier version of the story, there were hyenas. I am totally not making that up, though I wish I were. (I posted that page for an April Fool gag a few years back, in case it looks familiar to some of you but you have no idea why.)
Yeah, nuts to that First Contact nonsense! The Galaxion needs a Wave Motion Gun!
There were going to be hyenas and that was written OUT? Nooooo!
That does it. Now I have to write a hyena sequence if only to fill the void of what could’ve been.
I’m not sure about the Wave Motion Cannon, but I definitely want to see Tara’s rendition of the Survey Team being chased by a bear wearing a Sikh had and paddling a canoe.
Enough about sick bears! Why don’t they just start passing out red shirts?
I saw a butterfly, flutterb… ouch! wtf?
Maybe it was a moth, looking for a ‘myth’ to dally with,
and got confused?
The MOTHer of all tales?
