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.
BHP Forum No More [ May 1, 2021 ]
Well folks, it's been 14 years since we started the Big Head Press forum. And there's been a lot of great conversations held there. But, as they do, the times change, and most of the conversations regarding Quantum Vibe and other Big Head Press thoughtful stories have moved on to social media sites like Facebook and Mewe, as well as to the Disqus section on the Quantum Vibe website. With so few participating in the online forum anymore, we decided it was time to retire the forum.
We truly appreciate all the fan support we received there over the years, and hope those stalwart few who continued using the Big Head Press forum will join the rest of us on the other platforms.
Lauren, Otto, and Diana at the table on the balcony.
Caption: After I shared a bit about my past, Lauren opened up, as I'd hoped.
Lauren: Yes well of course since I'm not merely the youngest, I'm the only one who inherited her status, and wasn't part of the founding …
Lauren: … I'm quite the junior 'Pillar' of this city, for whatever that's worth.
Lauren, Otto and Diana. Otto can't take his eyes off Diana, who is starting to take notice.
Lauren: But of course, you're not here to talk about me, you want to know about Hayami.
Lauren: She was pretty amazing. At once quite personable, but with a laser-beam focus on her job.
Flashback scene: Lauren is walking along a concourse with a sharp young man. Hayami is three steps behind. Lauren speaks from a cameo:
Lauren: I would take her with me on business trips – to Azuria, or Kinshu, or Ramonagar – and despite her size she was a marvel at how she could watch me like a hawk but not be noticed herself.
Flashback continues: Lauren is in bed with the sharp young man, making the beast with two backs. The room lighting is low but not too dark. Hayami is standing in a corner, literally blending in with the background via holography.
Caption (Lauren): 'She had this uncanny ability to blend into the background.
Caption: 'If she didn't want to be seen, you'd never see her.'
