You think Unity intentionally left out "the touch" on her list of the weird things?

So The Traveler collided with this planet millions of years ago, caused it to spin backwards, perpetuates the storm, emits gases at "spirit wells" that cause a bunch of other weird shit, and enables people to turn into cats. Nothing too unusual here.

But it's weird stuff like that which helps make this story extra interesting, especially for some of us.

I do find it weird that Liam could learn to turn into a feline, as well. The Dalai makes a certain amount of sense to me because I could imagine that some mystical object from the Big Bang (or even preceding it) might somehow allow the cat-people to get in touch with their "junk DNA" or remnants of their ancestors or something. But Liam is human.

Then again, this is a story and not everything has to make perfect sense. Mystical is mystical. Also, if one goes back far enough, there was a common mammal species which diverged into primates, felines, canines and many, many others.

True, if it was about DNA then Liam would have changed to an ape. But remember Yokai said on page 92 that he would take the form of a beast that was "familiar" to him. So it's probably a good thing that the first animal Liam encountered was a Smilodon instead of a fish or a turtle.

Unity also said her implant only works with something with which she is "familiar".

Regarding the author's notes, I think The Traveller got wasted, ate some bad shellfish, and crashed into Celebus on his way home.

He's spent millions of years sleeping it off, and the gas he's been passing has been fueling the Angurad, messing with the DNA of all the planet's inhabitants, and giving second hand buzzes to anyone who enters a spirit well.

His flatulence has the ability to conduct thoughts, and once it has seeped into your skin, it never leaves your system. When the Gassed Ones touch someone, the they're able to tap into the thoughts flowing through that person's body. (Everyone has trace amount of gas in them, just from breathing the planet's air)

When you're in a spirit well, the flatulence let's your thoughts flow all the way down to The Traveller, and up his backside. And, his thoughts flow out and up, to you. Naturally, sharing the dreams of a drunk, food poisoned four-dimensional being is gonna give you some freaky visions. And, the fact that The Traveller is connected to everyone who ever has or ever WILL enter a spirit well, means that you never know whose thoughts you're gonna see, or even when those thoughts were/are being/will be thought.

I'm not even gonna elaborate on the greasy parts of the flatulence, that stick to water dragons' skin, or the nasty bits that collect on their gums. xp

(Ok, I managed to gross even _myself_ out, this time) xD

LOL! Love Carri's line. Too bad we didn't get Hochi's reaction.

Hochi thinks that Carri is a prima donna so he would rather not feed her ego with a response.

Did those two accidently get married, when none of us were watching?

Is it wrong that I want Liam and Carri to have some naked funtime together. I think she deserves a roll in the catnip 😉 😉

You mean like in the voting incentive and her dreams?

That said I don't know if we can watch old vote incentives? I know some can be found but not the later one's.

Now will Mitri and Rowdy stay hidden until the ship is too far to turn around or will they get caught early and be castigated and then put to work as crew.

They'll bump into Unity, who'll also be hiding below decks, and when they're all found, the grownups will have a hard time scolding the scamps for doing the same thing that Unity did. ;D

Why would we be here if it wasn't for the "weird shit"?
