Creepy moves in darkness dares discovery.
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.
They're on a broad balcony projecting from the rear of the building, overlooking a garden. DeClayre gestures towards one of the two chairs flanking a small, round table.
Caption: Naturally, she chose to put us outside under that too-bright sky.
DeClayre: Please make yourself comfortable. Otto will attend to us presently.
Caption: I could have pulled out a hat or eyeshades, or asked to convene indoors.
DeClayre and Diana are seated at the table. Otto approaches. Otto looks like a 14-year-old boy, which he in fact is. Blond and just a bit rounded.
Caption: But I didn't want to betray a weakness at first meeting.
DeClayre: We have a specialty beverage, a mango-citrus sparkler, produced from our own farm.
DeClayre: Would you like to try some with me? It's very refreshing.
The drinks have been delivered … Diana and DeClayre each have a glass, and there's a half-empty pitcher of same on the table. Otto stands by, staring at Diana. She doesn't seem to notice.
DeClayre: She disguised herself as a human? That's … generally frowned upon here.
Diana: So I've learned. But obviously it was necessary for her task.
Diana: Rob … Arti-folk are a separate, ruling elite on my homeworld.
Same shot, as Diana sips her drink.
DeClayre: And Alyss thought she could fix that all by her lonesome?
DeClayre: Mind you, I adore Alyss Roaz but sometimes she falls into hubris.
Caption: I must admit, I liked Lorelei right off the bat.
