KA-BOOOOOOM!!!!!

So there it is. The big secret for which I've been waiting 6 months to reveal to you. Surprising, isn't it?



Now, the question is simple: Can Jane survive?

The Wars has been locked-- the next few posts are scripted, so sit back and enjoy the ride!

Wha- how- when- Agh!

I think I'm going to be in shock for the next couple of hours. That was absolutely amazing.

But, even so - fangirliness... rising... *lurches off to zombie-glomp hapless victims*

Well, looking back at events, it's not IMPOSSIBLE. I feel stupid for not realizing the possibility sooner.

Story-wise, Ileen Jacobs appeared a few times but didn't play a significant role in most events until Bluelight began. But ever since the Redneck thing ended we knew she was alive.

It's been established that SiB is capable of shape-shifting (see the Halloween thread... when he dressed up as Yuki he cheated a bit because he could just alter his body and outfit for it.) and also that he can make Nanite phantoms of himself whenever he wanted. He could probably even mimic scents or tactile sensations if he set his mind to it.

Of course, this raises another question: Did Michael know about this?

So he could have done it. The real question is why. Why all the secrecy and conspiracy? What's Bluelight's real purpose? And have we seen the real #1 yet?

What's creepy is that, in a way, he never left Jane.

What's even MORE creepy is that he had a majority of the cast Nano-infected for the longest time. Little tiny Bluelight Nanites. Crawling around in people's brains. Like mind-ants.

Brrrr...... not a happy mental image.

You know, it's kinda unusual for me to be the one saying this, since I got used to terrorizing people due to Tanglebox, but we MAY be in over our heads. :(

And does anyone else wonder what would happen if the Ai Wally made David mentioned lurking in the Armor of Righteousness met up with War?

Sorry for the delay, folks, but I've just been writing the Triple Massive Monster Complete Exposition Post™, and it's only partly done. It should be up tonight or tomorrow.

Heh... no big deal.

If I may ask, would anyone mind if, between Bluelight and the next chapter, we move the time setting within the game forward four or five months? (As in: the next chapter happens four or five months after Bluelight.) There's something that I may do if no one minds this, and I'd like to ask.

Hmmm.... seems alright to me. I'm running the next chapter, and it would actually benefit from having had time pass.

It's actually good for me if time passes as well. Claire gets to get more settled in (I figure she's only been around for a few weeks at this point- feel free to correct me on that) and gets to know Xyon City better.

Believe me, after what's coming in the next few posts, Jane'll be glad for some time off.

Oh, and remember: It's always darkest in the middle of the night. Right before the dawn, the sky starts to lighten.

Yep-and of course I had to make a beeline for the computer. :D Even if I will have to crash soon...
Zobot, I have no objections to moving time up a bit.
And Beijing is fun.

Hip hip hooray! And yeah, no objections to moving forward. It'll give Wally an off screen chance to catch up with people, and build David an arm. And spend some time with the new Chic. Adjustment is fun.

I'm glad to be back-I was staring to get withdrawl symptoms. And I'm eagerly awaiting SiB's monster BL posts.

Tinker, I'm wondering about Fredric's other forms now. Punk winged jager-teen, chibi Fredric, vorpal bunny....I'm going to guess he'll developed a pooka form. I know, wait and see. And I'm liking the idea of alt-Freddy and good-Michael...

Edit-I have to admit, I liked Wally reaction to seeing Chic jaeger-fied. Of all the possible reactions, "Ooh, have you done something to your hair?" wasn't expected. :D

Yeah, I liked that touch. I thought about having him freak out, but it just didn't feel in character, and was really, much funnier. Besides, their both mad scientists. Who's to say that this isn't a new look she's trying out for the after noon?

Actiually, his usual form is a mix between his first two forms- Human(Jager) and Bunny. Now he has Chibi (energey saver) mode, which *has* to have ears tail+wings.
So two more... and Pooka isn't far off. XD

Well, this is it! Now, it's JN vs. SoItBegins in a climactic battle that may well change the power structure of Xyon City-- and the world!-- forever.

Just how powerful is SoItBegins?
Can Jane survive?
Which side are you on?

Find out, in the next exciting installment of The Mad Scientist Wars!!!

:shock: :o :shock:

Plus a bit of amazed squealing... I don't have the vocab to describe everything I'm thinking right now, but "Great job," comes to mind. Also "Wow" placed within an infinite loop.

Oh geeze... we're all well and truely screwed. SiB's got us right where he wants us, and sith lighting is probably the least of his weaponry he could use to crush us, if he doesn't just seize control of people's minds from the start.

Incidentlly, for anyone confused about Sarcastic's behavior or her actions right now, I'll just say this: If she survives, David's going to sit her down and get a full explaination eventually.

And predictibly, that ordinary pocket knife is anything but.

David: Ummm... there's a bit of an inaccuracy in your post. SiB didn't attack Xerox and Chic, he just interrupted them. He's attacking Jane-- the logic is, destroying her will send a nice lesson to everybody else. Thanks!

Eh, it changes little. I'll change it right now.

I'm really sorry for complicating things, Jane and SiB. Thanks for having patience with me.

EDIT: There, fix'd. Well, back to fighting off the evil homework demons that cling to my back.

Just point of note, miniature pies traveling near light speed still really sting. They're just much funnier.
