Remember that on Page 184, Natty and Noemi suspected that there was a reason that the Mag Leung kept her alive.

I posted a new incentive page on TWC vote button again.

Not quite crazy blue haired multitasking body snatching girl (fixed)
She snatched a body and escaped before she went crazy I think.

I don't know, but I don't think I would be OK with the situation if I were her... Even if I understood the reasoning of the possessing intelligence. Hell, even If I agreed, it would still creep me out to no end.

I don't think Crystyn's okay with it at all. But I think she realizes there was a worse fate for her, so in essence, Essential helped her escape too.

If it weren't for Essential, I suspect they would have made her a slave - perhaps letting the Mag Leung guards have their way with her. Or perhaps Tyranos would have her killed eventually.

The Demetrius was actually based on a Babylon 5 Explorer class ship.

Beauiful scenes. Who wouldn't enjoy such views from space?

Apparently, their virtual reality time passes much faster than real time. Judging by panel 4, it seems that Essential can fight within Bullet Time - able to process and plan moves faster than the body can move. That's a huge advantage.

I'm assuming Essential gets around to explaining some politics & geography. Right now, all Crystyn knows about "those people" Essential is fighting is that they attacked. Perhaps knowing that these Mag Cheng are kidnappers and bloodthirsty cannibals might aleviate any guilt she might have. After all, Essential is, to at least some degree, doing what Tyranos did to her.

Exactly. During this whole conversation on this page and the previous one, she's moved only a few feet in real time. Dealing with multiple targets at once like this is child's play when you can process information as fast as a supercomputer of the future.
Currently, the world's most powerful supercomputer can only mimic about 1% of human brain activity. But the brain's neuronal signaling is slower than the average computer because it involves electrical AND chemical signaling.
That's changing very fast. By this time in the future the computer will have far surpassed our human brains. We're going to need some upgrades to keep up.

Can we get some focus?

I think the story is becoming too fragmented. Too many characters all over the place, each doing their own thing, not enough party cohesion, we've lost the plot.

It is important to know how "The Unity" is created. She is a vital part of the story. And it so happens that she is traveling on the same river as Liam and headed right for him. They will come together soon enough. (sorry for the spoilers)

Lord of the Rings follows many different characters all over the place so it's not that. I think maybe you need to do a timeline for yourself, or maybe even one that you can share with the readers to tie it all in together. Like this: http://www.lordotrings.com/books/timeline.asp

That's an excellent idea. That will help me stay focused and fill in the gaps to make everything more understandable. Thanks, both of you!

I just realized something. AVANGIONQ are you confusing the filler pages as part of the story? I have thrown in a few lately so if you didn't read the author notes I could see where you get that idea. These filler pages are not part of the regular story.

BTW: Whatever happened after Essential tried that raw fish and puked? Did Crystyn get her to cook some fish? (She just needs a hot flame and her sword.) Otherwise, I imagine their body may start feeling weak after all that walking, puking, swimming and fighting.

I'm sure she cooked it and ate it. She still had the torch with her at that time. She didn't get rid of it until she had to swim underwater.

I'm hoping that we will get to see Essential's reaction to eating delicacies, like venison and whatever equivalents they have to sundaes, cake, and/or chocolate.

I'm reminded of Voyager when the EMH Doctor took control of Seven's body. He/she had to introduce some ship inspectors to the food replicators and (s)he gave a demonstration. After trying a bite of Boston Cream Pie, (s)he couldn't stop him/herself. Later, Seven had more than a few choice words for the Doc! :D

They eat mainly seafood of course because it is an ocean planet, but in chapter 3 we learned a little bit about their delicacies at The Feast of Angurad. The plateau is home to about 15 species of elome or antelope, two of which they raise as livestock in Sarola. Also, Mitri talks about honey gayledes and loaka berries.
Right now they have to stay on the run so there's not much chance of eating anything except cave fish, at least for awhile.

Thank you!
That's all up to Crystyn. If she starts thinking about it, Essential will most certainly want to know about it.
