Busting Out

Busting Out

Postby Kesh on Tue Dec 12, 2006 7:28 am

Uh-oh. I wonder what' ASCII's up to now.

And, nice trick. I'm wondering if there was some technology involved, or just really good knowledge of human response to suggestion, to make her go out like that.

Now where does he think he's going?

My personal first impulse was to question his 'curing', or whether his emotions got the better of them and he turned them off again. The calmness of how he approached busting out seemed characteristic of that to me. Of course, that could have just been him being... determined?

The guesses I came up with were:
1. He's emotionless again, and continuing his experiments
2. He's going to try and see Doctor Leon

Any other ideas?

Clasical psychology states that a perpetrator will often retun to the scene of his last altercation. Given that, yeah, he's on a mission to take on Dr. Leon. (He's a hetero-minded guy, of couse he's going to try to 'get the girl'.)

He's just going out to lunch. Nothing nefarious about this at all. Uh-uh. Nope. Totally innocuous. :D

If this were the usually irreverent UH I could believe that. Being that this is the more plot minded UH2, I have trouble.

Heh. It IS certainly the case that, even though the buffer's now down to 1 finished strip and 3 pencilled ones, a given strip has usually been somewhere in the "evilcloud" in my head of different subplots, plots, and twists through which I plan to drag my poor audience for at least, like, a month.

Whether ASCII's motives are innocent or nefarious, I can assure you I know EXACTLY where this hooks up to the greater Story.

he didn't hypnotize her. He hacked her eyefi and trapped her in a simulation... it's a mechanical thing so sue him for thinking like a hacker.

Dammit. Why is it the first thing that pops into mind is, "Hopefully he picked a 'fun' simulation for her."

... :oops:

Because this is the Umlaut House forum, where a little naughtiness of mind is not weird, but helps you comprehend the glory of UH?

Because enjoyable simulations will give you a better view on the perpetrator's actions. Suppose someone trapped you in a simulation for a whole day. Would you feel more well-disposed toward them if it was a simulation of Doom (or Doom 2 or Doom 3) where you constantly died because it was permanently set on Ultra-Violence and there were no cheat codes...or if it was a simulation of your most intimate sexual fantasy brought vividly to imaginary life?

No prize if the two are logically equivalent.

Yes, but how would ASCII know what Rhonda's most intimate fantasy was?

::tries to dodge the implications of that statement::

Unless there was an invasive program to determine such a thing?

If he can hack her cyberware, he's smart enough to find her hidden porn subdirectories and launch them. ;)

I figure he's talking about Rhonda, in which case he's got a point. Actually the majority of the cast is like, Real Ultimate Jailbait at this point.

:o

The only thing keeping me from outright panic over this is the fact that Clark Kent is supposed to be 14(!!!) when Smallville starts up and the sheer volume of innuendo in that series; it's increasingly being intimated as well that Chloe's claim of losing her virginity at 15 or so (to JIMMY THE NEWSBOY OH GOD JEEZUS MY EYES) is canon as well.

Well, maybe they imported some laws from, oh, Canada or some other place? Age of consent here for most things is 14, though our current Prime Minister wants to bump it to 16... long and stupid story there.

...

Britain would do in that case; the primary cast is pretty much all 16 and up.
