Squiggles! Fetch… the fluffy cushion! Efogoto October 11, 2018 at 1:09 am 4 months ago Boy, I sure didn’t see that one coming! Thanks for the belly laugh Christopher! Knicholas October 11, 2018 at 9:40 am 4 months ago This seems SOP for Emily. I wonder if Pierrot will be provided with peanut butter sandwiches again. Nomi October 11, 2018 at 12:55 pm 4 months ago As soon as they rolled out the air cushion, I knew it was Emily. You would think by now Pierrot would recognize her machinations too. Peter Rogan October 11, 2018 at 3:39 pm 4 months ago Oh, clever! When word of the abduction leaks to the rebels, they’ll tie themselves in knots trying to figure out who got there ahead of them and try to make contact with them. I don’t doubt Emily has foreseen this and has her deception lined up to find a way to use that paranoia productively. Still, I’m a little concerned that Galactic politics is so bloody Byzantine. Wheels within wheels, plots within plots. It’s not unlike trying to follow along the various powers and schemes in a Dune novel. It’s a nice place to read about, but boy, do you ever pay a heavy price for living in it. Think I’ll get a refill on popcorn and see if the cider is cold enough yet.
