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.
Diana is walking through the mercado concourse, carrying her flyer-case as usual. Her hair is now back to normal, but she still looks a bit tired, bags under eyes.
Caption: Fortunately I also carry a hairbrush in my coat pocket.
Caption: My coat is awesome. It has lots of pockets, and I carry a lot of stuff, but it doesn't weigh me down.
Caption: It was a gift from Monty, my first real friend here in the city.
She is pausing in front of the same RPLD storefront we saw way back in strip 005. She's reading something on a window sign.
Caption: I knew I wasn't in any shape to interview people.
Caption: But I've walked by this place at least 50 times, and I've gotten curious.
Caption: And apparently there's someone speaking here.
Inside the storefront, she is greeted by a Conehead woman standing behind a counter.
Conehead woman: Bonne après-midi! Comment puis-je vous aider ?
Diana: Ah, well, I understand you have … ah … Zéphyrine Aziz speaking here and I'd hoped to listen-in.
Conehead woman: In the back, past the red door.
Diana has entered a back room, arranged as a small meeting-hall with a raised dias. She looks across a sea of variously-shaped heads at Aziz giving forth, as a pair of Coneheads stand to either side behind her. A few other Coneheads clustered near a rear exit. Aziz is tall, lithe, dark-skinned, beautiful.
Caption: Aziz had already started when I arrived.
Caption: The crowd was a lot more mixed than I expected. Furries, Classics, Trans, and a cluster of Coneheads.
