Well now I want that too, so I can have Kolt try to clarify that it’s actually body control, only to realize that’s not much better.

kol doesn't entirely get what quint is, partly due to missing certain scenes, so she just goes by the visible shift in behavior.

Saffy just thinks he was shutting himself up. It's partly why she said that, to let him know she didn't mind much. Still a bit unsure though.

Well if they weren’t suspicious before, seeing him have to glare at his hand for half a minute before it let’s go should do it.

She’s open to being a hero, just not right now.

perhaps you interpreted it that way, but it came off more as a deflection attempt by someone too timid to say no...

she doesn't want to upset what are technically paying customers, so she acquiesces, but only in a way that they cant follow through on as they'll be long outside the system by then.

It's something of both. Right now, she's quite scared although she's doing her best 'Customer Service Wolf' (Apex Retail Predator) and trying not to let it show through.

And she's probably not interested in heroing but she's a teenager from a hunting race.

I have another question about your characters. Not because I’m waiting for anyone to post, I just thought it’d be fun to ask. If your character had to sing karaoke, what song would they sing?
Kolt would sing I’m Still Standing, as he’d like the theme of moving on in spite of (or perhaps to spite) those who’ve tried to hurt you. He’s also probably the only one who’d be 100% into it, not finding it at all cheesy or humiliating.
Lewis would probably sing Best of the Best of the Best, because if he has to do this, he’s going to have fun.
Liz would chose Dare for reasons similar to her son, and because she really likes the song.
Quint, once you convinced him it wasn’t a exercise in humiliation, would probably get rather into singing How Far We’ve Come, as he’d find it somewhat reflective of how he views the way his life has gone since joining up with Kolt; things could be better, and he’s not exactly a fan of much stuff seems to be falling apart, but he’s come really far, and he’s sure he’s going to go even farther.

Would they even actually sing that, or would they just play a recording of the song and (justifiably) expect no one to notice the difference?

Tatiana would probably sing "I'm Still Here" from Treasure Planet, as it embodies some of her hopes and fears with leaving the Rim to seek a better life while facing the obstacles that the changes in environment and herself that may bring.

When it's over, we can say, "Well done"
But not yet, 'cause it's only begun
So, pick up, and follow me, we're the only ones
To fight this thing, until we've won
We drive on and don't look back
It doesn't mean we can't learn from our past
All the things that we mighta done wrong
We could've been doing this all along...
"


Kol i would probably give something with two different overlapping vocal tracks, just so she can show off the advantages of having a polyphonic vocal structure.

Now this question is good, Lego!

Hmm, For Rika it'd have to be "The Blood that Moves the Body" by 'A-ha' - For two reasons. One; my mum was a HUGE fan of a-ha, and a bit of Rika's personality stems from her. Two; the title is also a link to her medical profession, in a way!

As for Traci, hands down has to be "Don't Stop me Now" by 'Queen'. She'd go all out on it, dancing along and having a whale of a time!

For Dan, he has two picks: "More than Words" By 'Extreme' Or "Your Guardian Angel" By 'Red Jumpsuit Apparatus'. Both of them would be sung to Keeva. He's a sappy sort. Like me.

Eira would probably sing Legendary by Skillet. She's ambitious, and never lets anyone keep her held down. No matter what they do to her. She's also trying to actually become legendary, as she feels the need to live up to her famous parents' legacy.

Sometimes I jokingly imagine Diligitis or his avatar the Dragon Knight getting ticked with some hateful villain and ranting the lyrics of Who Taught You How To Hate. Lately though, I think he would more go along with something like The Light with it's uplifting message of hope in dark times.

Hivemind would probably do Digital by Imagine Dragons, because... well, obviously.

Conall probably wouldn't sing. He'd have no clue of the tune or how most of the words should sound.

Cailean would probably sing "I'm On My Way".

Not you got me think about what Kolt would sing as a love song to Jenny. Probably Magic by Mystery Skulls.

Jaken would be 'Hungry like the Wolf'. (for innocent reasons.

Jenny - 'The Shoop-shoop song'(!)

Corp - (What else?) 'You're in the army now.'

Hannabelle - 'You give love a bad name'

Sarah (right now) 'Heaven' by Bryan Adams

I actually went to see the special 40th anniversary showing of the original Muppet Movie on Tuesday, and now I can’t stop picturing Lewis and Kolt singing Movin’ Right Along. In case you’re wondering, Lewis is Kermit and Kolt is Fozzie.

Apologies for the double post, but I thought of another question to ask to help pass the time until the next post. What’s a scene you’ve wanted to write for one or more of your characters for a while now? Among other things, I’ve wanted:
Scenes of both Quint and Liz having a conversation with Diligitus. Quint’s would be focused on discussing his feelings regarding whether or not he qualifies as a person, while Liz’ would be about her trying to get in contact with her mother back in the Havenverse.
Kolt meeting Lewis and Liz. I’ve been wanted to do this since I first brought the two into BOH, but I haven’t been able to find a good reason for them to meet yet.
Kolt’s argument with Kobor and Talya. I’ve been waiting for my chance to write this for almost two years for this one, and given how they’re getting their brains reset soon, I don’t know if I ever will.

It's going to be tough for me to answer that without spoilers since things I want to write typically get planned as part of the main plot...

I can say I really want to write a scene with Diligitis fully manifesting in his true form to do battle with Odium also in his true form.

If I remember right, it was going to start with Kolt asking what was up with them flipping out back in the training sim yesterday, and once they explained the whole “brainwashed themselves into mindless killing” thing, he’d flip out, since something like that (and the reasons behind it) goes against his culture and his beliefs on a fundamental level. Depending on how the argument went from it, he’d probably escalate to violence before someone like Hivemind stepped in.

oh THAT. that's a engineered response encoded on the genetic level. an artificial instinct if you will. it's still there, they'd still know what he's asking.

"Was i within the first two or three weeks after switching hosts? No? then it was probably a sleeper response."

and its not mindless so much as 'use everything at your disposal to eliminate this one thing in particular as quickly as possible, then compartmentalize the resulting memories and emotions.'

The compartmentalizing is a big reason of why he’d get upset, since he feels if you can’t live with the memory of killing someone, don’t kill them. You don’t just kill them and then lock away the memories. He’d also get mad at how flippantly they disregard the idea of trying to communicate with the Grehkall, since he’s been trying to take up Lila’s schtick of trying to talk down the baddies whenever possible. I think I already said this in an earlier post, but neither sides attitude is wrong for the society they come from, but is completely wrong for the others society.
Also, while we could still do the argument, Kolt (and I) wouldn’t really view it as an argument with Kobor and Talya, he’d view it as an argument with two brand new people who share their names and at most 5% of their memories.

"Wrong psychology. the information isn't compartmentalized to eschew feelings of guilt, or post mortem empathy, or whatever other sappy nonsense. quite the opposite, it's a source of pleasure. we only restrict that part of ourselves because indulging it endangers the long-term survivability of the species. it's not a healthy habit to have when you need to co-exist with other species."

They compartmentalize the memory of their kills not because they can't live with it but because the vast majority of them enjoy it. if it weren't for the fact that they're smart enough to realize someone out there might come up with a way to 'cure' them, and wipe their kind out, the kaal would happily be a galactic plague. they have empathy out of necessity, not by nature.

Well, the first battle they fought together, Ulrich kinda insulted him for panicking over the fact that he was about to fight a hate god, followed that up by (from his perspective) randomly walking up to him in the middle of a party to ask him about a rather random detail from a traumatic period in his life, plus he spent less than a week thinking it over before deciding to become a superhero (admittedly, the scene where he talked about that happened before Kolt joined up, but I imagine that would be in his file). Overall, Kolt views Ulrich as being, at best, an inconsiderate Genius Ditz who didn’t think things through before becoming a hero, who’s going to last at most three months before either dying or encountering something he can’t handle and quitting.

If I recall, it was also because Ulrich trusted the Hobomancer too quickly for Kolt's liking, especially since the first of the Hobomancer's powers that he demonstrated was uncannily similar to Kolt's most hated enemy.

Oh yeah, forgot about that. Yeah, while Kolt got over his problems with the Hobomancer rather quickly, that was once he earned his trust. Ulrich on the other hand, trusted him almost immediately, even after he’d acted in a very suspicious manner, which didn’t help Kolt’s view of him as a naive doofus.

”......Unless you’re telling me the only reason you ever kill is because you enjoy it, I don’t see what incentives have to do with this. Because there are always incentives to kill. Self defense, achieving a goal, preventing them from killing other people. Not enjoying killing doesn’t magically make those all go away. Or are you telling me that you’re so selfish, that you consider your own comfort such a big incentive, that you wouldn’t raise a finger to defend yourself if doing so made you feel the slightest bit uncomfortable?”
Seriously though, I’m genuinely confused as to how losing one of the many incentives there are to kill would somehow make them pacifists.
I am so tired of the people I look up to turning out to be jerks.

You ever realize that the two longest pieces of literature in existence are both fanfics? Weird right?
