It’s good to know where everyone stands. Where they seem to be currently standing are in some caves.

    Anesu could sew four of the sleeves closed and use them as pickets to hold other things she takes in a heist. Or maybe yet better to carry salves, bandages and her loose teeth that Pilot knocked out.

      Has it ever bothered you how similar capital cursive s and g are, it bothers me a lot as someone who writes in poor cursive all the time because my print is worse.

        If your print is worse, this won’t help, but I use print caps and cursive lower case when writing. I can’t remember why I started doing that in college, but it’s 40 years too late to change.

    Anesu really got her butt kicked and now I understand why. Some people are kleptomaniacs. A very nicely drawn capital “G”, but on a bit of alien clothing. I was never that good at calligraphy, but not bad at drawing. But then they are not similar in how they are executed. Still a joy to read an interesting story with so many well delineated characters.

    Walking through walls would be very difficult indeed. You would have to change the character of your molecules to even have a chance of going through without getting stuck, bounced back or wrecking the structure of the material you are going through and what you are made of. There was a very interesting Batman Beyond that had a very dark ending concerning such powers.

    Printing is easy but time consuming. Why cursive is better. And everyone should always have a non-electronic back up. All it would take is a very powerful X class burst from our sun hitting us directly to knock out power and it would be far worse than 1859. I hope we are prepared for it.

        @Owen Smith, to quote Wikipedia:

        The solar storm of 1859 (also known as the Carrington Event) was a powerful geomagnetic solar storm during solar cycle 10 (1855–1867). A solar coronal mass ejection (CME) hit Earth’s magnetosphere and induced one of the largest geomagnetic storms on record, September 1–2, 1859.

        Telegraph operators were able to operate the telegraphs without the attached batteries; the telegraph wires sparked something fierce; and if you’ve ever read “One Minute After” that’s the kind of world we’d be living in if such an event happened today.

    Keep in mind that isn’t really a cursive G. It’s their translator bugs’ augmented reality translation of whatever symbol is actually there, unless it coincidentally is a G, like the Kryptonian symbol for hope just looks like an S.
