Well, if they were smart, they have 5 tanks sitting out where they can bluff their way through any questions.
Five tanks of Koi in the lobby, each with different LED lighting.
Be careful, Shanna! Stay ahead of the curve. You don’t want a jarring experience, do you?
She just needs to keep her true identity bottled up.
Or else they might can her.
So she should contain her true reactions
“Wow, Mr. Ferris! What do you call this…thing?”
“Well, Ms. Daly… or should that be, Ms. Cochran!…. you can call this your mIpod, but I’m gonna call it your Youtube! MUAHAHAHAHAHA”
Two ordered… more recently?
H-uh. Guess it’s time for more direct divine intervention, eh HR?
Or there are two additional “volunteers” for the system- and two Arkerrans who are actually human beings. If so, which ones?
HR ordered two more tubes on page 24 of Chapter 15 (I just looked it up). Also, re-reading that chapter I realized that HR scripted things so that the Savages would succeed in calling their God, Tectonicus, who was supposed to kill the Four. The whole plot was just HR’s way of trying to kill the Four again. The things I forget….
Good memory. It’s nice when someone does the mental legwork on stuff like that.
The opposite of that. I physically searched the archive for it!
My guess is that Shanna is actually Kur’Ik. And either Penk or Fr’Nj is the person in the other tube, whoever that might be.
are we not concerned about the amount of autonomy shown by scip/merl/rachael?
“just walk down this hallway, you take a left and stop once your standing on a big X. If you see a sign that read ‘this is not a trap’ you have gone too far.”
I’m confused. The monologue implies she’s using her real name, but now she’s Miss Daly, and a few pages ago she was Shanna Cochran.
Doesn’t mean she won’t use a fake name anyway. It would be playing safe as far as investigative journalism is concerned.
She might be planning to report under a pseudonym?
I didn’t read anything saying she was using her real name, just implying it’s easier to hide your real identity than one thinks (short term anyway) She’s not famous sense no one pays attention to who writes newpaper headlines so it would be easy as long as she doesn’t act like a reporter.
Bylines also often contain photos.
They do!? Maybe I should start paying more attention to those…
Perfect avatar. That’s exactly how I feel too.
I know the name of the company was planned out far, FAR in advance….but ouch, the timing!
Woulda sucked if Shanna’s name were Sandy.
No… Timing would be having to introduce a character named Sandy right when it’s become too late to change it. This comic’s been around long enough that an a major hurricane hit was going to happen eventually.
But it’s not every day we see the name in a giant evocative image!
how else would they illustrate the name, in ice?
I think you missed my point good sir.
I find it interesting that the “real world” is in greys, browns, sepias, with a generally washed out feel too it. When you get into the game, i.e. the comic, every color is bright and vivid.
You mean it’s not like for you normally?
Teach me to attempt snark at 4 AM
Cue the Admiral Ackabar meme. Before Disney sues you for it.
It’s the calm before the hurricane.
Oh, and is Mr. Ferris a younger, perkier image of Phil from before life got to him?
I… I’m 27 :|
I’m still young and perky… right?
Sure…for a few more years.
Wow. I’m older than you?
Eh, he’s probably going to show her some windows on a corner or something that are curved, something totally normal and irrelevant.
Oh, hey, William H. Macy metaplot. Lemme get back to you.
