To boldly go where no manic pixie dream girl has gone before.
A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly
100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five
centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various
off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The
story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along
with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues
with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.
We Now Return You To Your Regularly Scheduled Program. [ Mar 1, 2021 ]
Texas has returned to more normal winter weather conditions, power is back on and Internet connections are working. Which means Scott has new Quantum Vibe strips ready to go this week. We appreciate everyone's understanding and patience as we emerged from hibernation.
Eithne slows down as she approaches a wall full of windows, looking outside. We can see that we are several stories up.
Eithne (thought): Shit! I'm like 50 meters up!
Eithne: Where's the exit from this place?
She approaches a wall upon which is a plaque that has alien script on it but is clearly an 'emergency exit' directional sign, showing a layout of the floor and the exits. There are elevators and stairwells indicated.
Eithne: Well, that's helpful.
Eithne is bounding 4 steps at a time down a stairwell.
Eithne (thought): I hope I don't overshoot the ground level.
Eithne (thought): I'm not certain how many stories up I was.
On the ground floor, she zooms past a quartet of security guards waiting for an elevator.
Eithne: Fancy meeting you guys!
Eithne (thought): I suppose there's a lesson here but I don't have time to discuss it.
Eithne zooms towards a main entryway, but the exit is blocked by a pair of guards, who see her coming.
Eithne (thought): Just my luck!
Eithne (thought): Maybe if I put on the speed I can boom right through them?
Eithne's feet go up in the air as the guards have grabbed her upper arms and hold her fast.
Eithne (thought): Well, that's a big, steaming pile of 'nope.'
