I guess Prime doesn't like competition.

Oh, and because I forgot to say it earlier: Happy Birthday, Prof Z!

Thanks SiB!

Anyways... so flamma's down. Next up is Jane Narbon, I suppose... and then Frederic.

Michael: Crap... Xerox is relating to me. This changes everything! I have to reevaluate my whole life! What if I'm not being evil enough?

Note: Jane's monster is NOT done yet! Would everybody mind holding off posting (in the Prix, anyway) until I get my next move written up?

OK-- that's Jane's plan! Isn't it absolutely devilish? And we get to find out what had happened to the Guy In Black!

Prime: I think I'm going to have to provide free resurrections again.

Just as a note (especially with the new story in the tales) there is a reason Claire was able to get through the riddle room, despite not understanding metaphors, or English in general. I probably worry too much about these things, but it seemed worth mentioning...

As far as the one that finally opened the door:

(20+ years ago)

Jennifer: Hey Claire, I'm thinking of something. When one does not know what it is, then it is something; but when one knows what it is, then it is nothing. What is it?

Claire: *ponders*

-20 minutes later-

Claire: Can't you just tell me?

Jennifer: It's a secret.

Claire: Why won't you tell me?

Jennifer: *grinning* It's a *secret.*

Claire: Jennifeeeer!

Jennifer: *trying not to laugh* It's a secret! Why is that such a difficult concept?

*Shrugs* Hey, she cleared it with me (Sorta, anyway) WELL before the final event happened, so I'm green with it.

Remember that the point of the Monster is to impress the judges. Her plan was a calculated risk, and it remains to be seen whether or not the unconventional tactic and creative thinking will win her any points. This move may have either won it for Narbon, or guaranteed that she won't take first place.

It all remains to be seen...

It's not robotic. The Rabbit was a bioengineered creation. So was Gug, though in his case 'bioengineered' means 'sewn together'.
The rabbit-making machine was (not counting the eye candy) really a simulacrum generator linked up to a cage hidden inside it-- when Gug died, the cage opened, and The Rabbit came out to wreak havoc on the world. :twisted:

Of course, we'll have to wait for the Judges' verdict...

I can actually vouch for this. She had something along these lines planned out for quite some time now.

Oooh... now Frederic's monster, mm? I get the feeling Prime is going to play hardball... of course, considering that it technically is SoItBegins, it's rather understandable.

Professor Zobot (Circa Chapter 4, before the whole David thing happened, thanks to the TimeTravelotron 2001): Ah, Frederic's just sentimental because he hasn't had his first creation that turned against him yet. It's bound to happen eventually. You learn to stop caring after about your third creation that tries to betray you.

Claire: But your creation turning against you is the best part! It's all evil and destructive and it tries to destroy you and it's so adorable! Besides, if we kill Allan, he won't even get a chance to turn against Fredric... Well, depending on how he was made, anyway...

Prof. Zobot: Pfah. Miss, I don't know who you are, but you are missing the point. However adorable that Evisitron 1958 is while it's coming after you, it doesn't change the fact that it's coming after you. And Allan isn't going to turn against Frederic. But SOMETHING Frederic makes inevitably will. It's one of the ways of Mad Science.

Claire: Well, yeah. I know that. I'm just saying I doubt you stop caring after the third one. Are you really telling me that when something you made comes charging at you with fire and knives and acid, you aren't going to be even a little sad about blowing it into little smithereens? Besides, how are you going to fully appreciate it unless you experience its attacks first-hand?

Sorry about Radcliffe's potty-mouth. His mama didn't raise him to say impossible functions.
