Hmm. Wonder whether Hannelore could arrange that stealthcraft to give Marten a ride?

I think going with Tai will initially elicit some comments about him "finally having a nice, artsy girl"...heh.

Gordon?

He'd be shellshocked by the time they got there. Also, Spiders can't drive. They can't reach the pedals.

...Unless he was giving driving instructions to Marten, while riding atop his cranium.  :psyduck:

I was wondering that myself, actually. Hanners wasn't allowed to talk about it at the party, but she might convince her mom to allow Marten to use it.

Her mom? I thought it was one of her space-dads devices.

Anyway, I still think Marten is going to use the Rumba as a hoverboard.

A group of us at college spent about six months discussing how to make a working hoverboard. Mind you, this is the same group of people that spent a day arguing about which building on the campus would be best to capture in a zombie apocalypse. We got it down to either languages/economics because it was tall and had balconies for watching from or the sciences/computing block because of the potential for improvised weaponry.

Oh god, Emily at a same sex marriage ceremony would be righteous! :-o

I can just imagine the pranks/weird shit she'd pull on Marten.  Oh man, she'd be a treat to take anywhere to introduce to people.  Would be like talking to a living breather alien.

Please let it be Emily!

(Wish Hanners had gone.  Can get enough of her and poor ole' Marty chillin).

Wishful prediction: Hannerdad has by now gotten the first working model of the Star Trek human fax machine matter transporter. Hanners will persuade him to use it to get Marten to the church on time and there will be a mishap of the type that split Capt. Horatio Horndog into his two aspects -- the wolf and the doormat.

Except in Marten's case, no one will notice anything different.

 And, since i couldn't see Claire in the clothes of "Awkward Zone", the fancy dress is something that i really want to see  :-) .

He's going to kill her off in some horrible way, isn't he?   :-D


She gets run over by a bus on the way back from COD, and everyone is beside themselves with grief... except for Emily who is pissed because her banana-smoothy was destroyed by a careless EMT.

In case that's levelled at pwhodges...
The opposite of "bowed to pressure from fans" would be "had it planned from the start"... So, none of the above.

Either way...

I think we all know from experience how little weight Jeph gives to fan input when making creative decisions.

What better way to develop a character than to throw her into an unfamiliar situation?

Please no. Please. I've lost too many trans friends that way. Yes, it would be plausible, realistic even, but not really in QC's style - any more than Momo getting set on by Fanatics and put in a crusher, then melted to slag.

Yeah, pretty sure she's been looking for one for a while.

She strikes me as the kind of gal who might like to wear a wedding dress one day too. Not everyone's like that, but in her heart of hearts, maybe.

In the meantime, yes, formal attending-wedding attire! She has the figure for it too. Probably wants a hairdo, maybe a makeover... you see she probably didn't get to attend a prom, or do any of the other teenage girl stuff. She's got some making-up to do.

Marigold probably didn't either, but she might not miss it. Not too much. Or wouldn't admit it to herself.
