FB: Narrator: “Shanna had often wished that Xan would just get a haircut already, but not like this.”

By far the most interesting thing on this page to analyze is that HR’s power has begun to extend more forcefully into Sepia World. The purple protomatter that he’s used to make his servants and his body is coming for Shanna and Xan, who unlike Carol seem pinned to the ceiling. Why them and not Carol? Maybe some lingering feeling in HR that Carol was special to him…if not precious, at least useful? Could be, but I wouldn’t ascribe much of a plan to HR’s actions at this point. It’s just as likely that Shanna and Xan got caught in one “current” of antigravity and Carol didn’t.

That’s a pretty good Best-stanza from Flo, there.
