I detect a serious lack of fun particles at the moment...
Oberoten 13th Feb 2019, 12:45 AM edit delete reply

A SECOND fun-pire has arrived. I have to wonder if this is Cent's way of getting back at the girls for Lynn's lack of respect.
Haegan2005 13th Feb 2019, 5:40 PM edit delete reply

Well, maybe.

First, Cent is sneaky. People generally don't get that.

Second, Cella has a history with the family. As in she feels that Cent has a noted preference for the safe keeping of these particular humans. This may be a way of getting Cella to experience time with "Good" humans. An attempt to 'socialize' Cella for lack of a better phrase.

Do we sense a blet wanket in the house?

LOL … fun-pire … Rose, don't forget to take notes, they are breaking out the good shit over here. 😊

Credit to Acantha for respecting Noctis' wishes.

Noctis never really had occasion to be friendly before now. Maybe she can learn it.

You know, I have to say, a baked potato is a good reason to be a bit late to something.
Sheela 13th Feb 2019, 1:20 PM edit delete reply

Well, that depends on how late … don't want the potato to go cold !
CptKerion 13th Feb 2019, 5:46 PM edit delete reply
Well, obviously.
You're late to other things so that you're not late to the potato.
SeanR 12th Feb 2019, 10:35 PM edit delete reply
This is late?
It's still Tuesday, here, and I'm not in Mountain time.

Come to think of it, why is this board seemingly in Atlantic time? Are the servers in Maine?
Ictuan 13th Feb 2019, 3:38 PM edit delete reply
I wish Maine was in Atlantic time. Maybe then the sun would stop rising at O'god thirty every morning. We like lose a good two hours of sunlight much of the year to normal sleeping time.
SeanR 13th Feb 2019, 5:54 PM edit delete reply
Oh. Sorry. I could have sworn I'd seen a map that showed Maine in a timezone by itself. On checking now, I see I am wrong.
Ictuan 13th Feb 2019, 8:00 PM edit delete reply
We should be over one more timezone, if we were to line up our daylight hours more appropriately. Unfortunately, having our business hours line up with the rest of the East Coast won out.

It could be worse, DST is the Devil's Time responsible for a lot of accidents each spring when the clocks go ahead and people's circadian rhythms are screwed up for a week; but before that every city had it's own time, each one off by a little bit from the others depending on the Sun's elevation there, and the train tables were a nightmare. That was the biggest reason for standardized time in North America, to synchronize the trains, now if they'd just run on time....
Ganurath 12th Feb 2019, 11:32 PM edit delete reply
Baked potatoes are indeed good. I particularly like having a bag of microwave popcorn, timing it so that by the time I'm done with the popcorn the potato is ready. Then, I rub slices of potato on the inside of the popcorn bag, torn open for easy access, in order to slather the potato in artificial butter flavor.

Oh, and the update is good, too.
mjkj 13th Feb 2019, 12:52 AM edit delete reply

*lol* Lynn knows those anti-fun particles... =P

Acantha is trying hard - and no, Noctis is not Arianna...

I hope she will find time to grieve for Arianna, though...

I agree a baked potato It's a Wonderful reason to be late for anything.
DLKmusic 15th Feb 2019, 1:13 AM edit delete reply

"Glorious Baked Potato". There really is nothing meaningful you can add to that statement!
PioneerPete 16th Feb 2019, 10:54 PM edit delete reply
You can add bacon to that.
Oberoten 16th Feb 2019, 11:29 PM edit delete reply

Wife found a glorious recipe for microwave baked sweet potatoes.

Just grab a bunch of them, jab them all over with a fork, slam into microwave for 4 min / potato (or until soft).

Serve with a mix of feta-cheese, creme fraiche, olives and thyme.

This has become my favourite vegetarian dish, and also is very good for my bloodsugar levels.
Just_IDD 13th Feb 2019, 5:23 AM edit delete reply
Whoops didn't mean to finish that comment.

Was going to mention that I make baked potatoes now as wedges because they cook faster that way and I can use different seasonings in different batches. I also use the good kind of coconut oil when I make them so they are ever so slightly sweeter then normal. The only problem is I have to make about twice as many as I think I'll need because of "Quality Control Unit Testing."
Oldarmourer 14th Feb 2019, 6:42 AM edit delete reply
Chop potatoes up in bite sized pieces, toss with olive oil and a selection of herbs and spices, (you need the oil to make the herbs stick and 'Shake and Bake' works if you're lazy ;)) I especially like some dehydrated onion bits for the crunch, then bake on a sheet until nicely golden. Works for sweet potatoes too or any root vegetable, I prefer a little honey and ginger/cinnamon/cloves with carrots or turnips though.

It would be interesting to know what Noctis does for 'fun' when she feels she has the opportunity to indulge. As the great philosopher, James T. Kirk said, "The more complex the mind, the greater the need for the simplicity of play."
oldastronomer 13th Feb 2019, 8:49 AM edit delete reply
I think if you look back at the Ophelia series, you will find that she expostulates that "Noctis kits (fff) lace doilies", or something like that. I take this to be literally true as Ophelia would have no reason to fabricate something so ridiculous on the face of it. Pity that Acantha doesn't know this or she would take everybody to the craft faire/mall - prob. not a platinum sector thing. Dammit, we got to get Acantha & co to the real New Troy!!
By the way, I second baked potatoes, with baked beans, or butter and Marmite, Cheese, scrambled egg, veg stew, or really anything at all. Microwaved for 10 mins they do just fine. Happy shlurpings all!!

So I'm not sure where to put this and this is the current page were the creators or likely to see it.

please delete this, and possible the comment at the bottom of 1026 made by somebody else when the fix has been completed since that's all these comments are about.

I'm doing a nearly full reread starting from the point of the kidnapping

I remember a while back early Pages were changed to fix a continuity problem. One of those pages though, 116, introduced a second problem on 1026. I remember

Within story chronologically these take place within a week of each other although by publication date they are many years apart.

It's introduced on page 116 that regenexx cannot be introduced transdermally and be effective. That is the reason for using needles with it and caused Lynn to go into anaphylactic shock that required her medical recovery.

Page 1026 has regenexx being effectively transdermally applied which violates the statements on the earlier changed page that were made to fix a different problem.
Just_IDD 13th Feb 2019, 10:15 AM edit delete reply
I also have a second fix that needs to be done to an earlier comments but I need to ask that privately somehow and not sure how to do that.

actually that is a " Jet" injector its not transdermal ir fires a stream of liquid and carrys the drug that way.
Sheela 13th Feb 2019, 1:25 PM edit delete reply

While the girls might not get a chance to dress up Noctis for fun, it may still be a good idea for Noctis to have a backup outfit, for diplomatic reasons .. like if they get invited to a party, it might be nice to have some armor that looks nice.
True, her first job is being a bodyguard, but bodyguards usually wear very nice suits too - So as not to stand out too much.
megados 13th Feb 2019, 3:50 PM edit delete reply

Even if it's only something to wear in case her outfit somehow gets disintegrated in the laundry! O_o

You just never know! :D
CptKerion 13th Feb 2019, 8:17 PM edit delete reply
I could see her seeing the use in a well cut, simple, business-like piece of formal wear that fits nicely over her armor.
Sheela 14th Feb 2019, 5:56 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, those laundry machines are vicious!
And it can be very useful to blend in.
Though the Cassians was designed to stand OUT, but there's dresses for that too. 😁
Oldarmourer 14th Feb 2019, 6:47 AM edit delete reply
I could see Noctis in a nice flowered summer sundress.

So long as they were black flowers...on a black background...and the dress had pant legs...and was made out of armoured cloth

She'll get better at friendship. Just sit her down for a "My Little Pony" marathon. XD
DLKmusic 13th Feb 2019, 6:26 PM edit delete reply

I dunno, Kartoon, I Think "My Little Pony" may be a consent/compel issue with Noctis!
Sheela 14th Feb 2019, 5:57 AM edit delete reply

ooOoohhh .. a "My Little Pony" fight between Noctis and a Centcomm doll ?

That's just too darn hilarious! 🤣
DLKmusic 13th Feb 2019, 6:41 PM edit delete reply

I'm almost afraid to say it for the firestorm it could potentially cause, but the person in the room who most needs a makeover? Cella!

I mean, come on! am I the only person on the planet that thinks her current outfit looks like a multi-purpose PVC plumbing valve? Complete with rubber fittings?
megados 13th Feb 2019, 7:49 PM edit delete reply

In an attempt to sidestep any potential firestorm, but to speak to the possibility you suggest, someone commented on a previous page, that the cast page notes that Cella does like shopping. No indication of what she likes shopping for, though, but . . . :D
Morituri 14th Feb 2019, 12:24 AM edit delete reply
But... but... I know LOTS of people who enjoy wearing rubber clothes. Although most of them live rather unusual lifestyles.... :facepalm:
Tokyo Rose 15th Feb 2019, 5:23 AM edit delete reply

No kink-shaming! Unless kink-shaming IS your kink, in which case, divide by zero reboot universe
Sheela 15th Feb 2019, 9:04 PM edit delete reply

But .. what if Cella's kink is to be shamed, by others ?
DLKmusic 16th Feb 2019, 11:17 AM edit delete reply

Sorry @Rose, I wasn't trying to make any kind of lifestyle commentary, I was only commenting on how her suit looked like it was made from molded PVC piping...
Fifi the Fashion Cassian 16th Feb 2019, 11:20 AM edit delete reply
@DLKmusic: Regardless of the materials, at least she's color coordinated... Unlike You, DLKmusic! A navy blue undershirt with a brick red pullover sweater, and Olive Green pants?

Are you TRYING to force me into a positronic cascade failure, human???

12 more hours of Project Runway for you, and ONE word out of you means you have to eat carrots the entire time. Understand?
megados 16th Feb 2019, 2:41 PM edit delete reply

Fifi the Fashion Cassian absolutely needs to be made canon! XD

Everyone likes kink, at the least some version. I mean that is kind of what kink means. ;)
