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.
Diana, Lorelei, Dong and his two nieces confer over tea and cakes in Lorelei's parlor. Diana and Lorelei have seated themselves on a sofa that had extruded up out of the floor behind them.
Lorelei: You should visit Sr. Gómez as soon as possible.
Lorelei: But you should not go alone.
Dong: I humbly offer you the personal protective services of my two nieces.
Diana looks across the table at the two nieces. Areum is her usual reserved self; Wook is still making goo-goo eyes back at Diana.
Dong (OP): They are both highly skilled.
Diana: No doubt they are, but I'm not sure if I can afford your fees.
Wook: Oh, you don't have to pay me.
Everyone looks askance at Wook, who is now blushing and trying to recover from her faux pas.
Dong: Wook! You should not dis-value your services.
Wook: I … I mean … I thought Senhora deClayre was paying -?
Lorelei: Er, not that I would mind, but ...
Dong adminishes Wook as Areum tries to pretend she's not there. Wook's head is bowed.
Dong: This culture discourages allowing someone else to pay for your personal protection.
Dong: This is wise, for such a practice creates muddled loyalties.
Dong: I am sure we can come to an arrangement with Diana, directly.
Wook: Yes, Uncle.
