Alright, alright... I just thought it would be funny as hell to write that. It would totally happen if this was a script for a tv show. You see bad guys kidnapping children, and one of those kids is able to get a few amusing hits off before being subdued. And then the boss would dock the pay of the guys who got hit cause they let a kid beat em up. Don't tell me it wouldn't have you laughing.

Most TV shows don't have a certain angry amphibian-avatar'd asshole breathing down the necks of the writing crew ;D

True, but the point of writing fiction like this is it allows you to get away with a few things that couldn't happen in real life.

Come on, admit it, i kinda got you on that point. Plenty of unbelievable things have happened here. Whats one humorous humilation for four guys who are part of a group kidnapping children for experimentation?

We at least have ways to legitamate bullshit. Alot of what happened required advanced technology or divine intervention. These are more than likely Ballpoint Contractors or at least well built scieitists/assitants doing the kidnapping.

Alright, fine. I give. You win. I doubt i'll want to write the kidnapping and experimentation part, though...

Up until recently, Mr Frog pretty much cared only about the science. He's not really an evil man per se, but he only recently began examining the ethical implications of his experiments, and he wasn't sure he liked what he saw.

So, to answer your question: Yes, then!Mr Frog probably would have snatched a hundred babies For Science!! without a second thought, even though now!Mr Frog probably wouldn't.

I doubt Frog would actually remember what any of his subjects looked like (he's likely gone through hundreds throughout his various experiments), but the presence of a neoshadow so far outside its normal habitat combined with the fact that Rose would be in the right age group for having been a test subject would certainly trigger suspicions.

E: I'm not sure how well neoshadows dissipating in complete darkness would work, actually... my original concept had neos phasing through their host's bodies in order to leech energy, but that wouldn't work too well if they dissipated in complete darkness, because (shocker!) the inside of an opaque object -- such as a human body -- is completely-dark. Do you think maybe their dissolves-in-darkness trait could be dropped? It doesn't seem super-critical...

E2: I don't care how awesome you think she is, a 6-year-old is not going to overpower multiple adults.

wouldn't dissolves in darkness imply that they have no substance in total darkness, thus enabling them to phase through solid, opaque objects but not transparent stuff, ie glass as there is always some residual lumosity coming from something?

Whoa... Let's not start up a flamewar over this.   :-\

Let me distract you with a story post. Three people collaborated on this one (four, if you count Mr Frog's contributions), and no, the sexual themes aren't likely to show back up after this... Hopefully it's nothing that'll attract the attention of the ban hammerer.

Due to the cross-continuum of everything and how everything meshes with everything else and nothing makes sense anymore... The chronology of this particular year's story posts isn't well-defined. Some belong in both Paintbrushturkey's and Mitch's rule, but enh. Everything after July 1st goes here, and everything after Mitch's turn not explicitly belonging to his turn goes here. Sorry for the confusion, but when in Spearbreakers, do as the Spearbreakans do: throw logic out the window. (It's the only way to survive.)

Excellent story post, talvieno. I've been wondering, have you just given up writing for dorf!Talvi? It's been a while since i've seen a journal entry for her.

She seems to have her viewpoints given on other things in the stories that have been written. Either that or he just hasn't thought to. Besides, Talvi's speech patterns must be annoying to replicate.
