Nice punch! But why the hostility? Is it the magical rock with the ability, or Charlie-with-the-necktie? So many unanswered questions :O Leo can’t think Necktie Charlie is the noseless guy, can he? >~> He’s been with him almost the whole time.
The hostility is because Charlie has just opened up an anchor in a random universe, something only the Dark Everett can do…which merits explanation, as they say.
Since it would seem CP has only been at this for a day or so, what can BE explained? He was as shocked as could be when he opened the door on top of (I’ll assume) the Great Pyramid at Giza and saw the same African Plain he saw when he first tried with Leo, and as you mentioned elsewhen (e-mail), CP being saved by Leo was not preordained nor was it intentional, so how could there be any explanation, when CP barely even knows what he’s doing?
Yeah, I know, “Keep reading!” LOL
To these guys, Charlie is still a complete stranger… and they’ve been together for God knows how long… so Charlie is a strange new element… when he suddenly displays a power that (out of tens of thousands of Charlies) only one Charlie has (DE), it’s not so much what he’s done, as the fact that now they have to, hey presto and with extreme prejudice, find out EXACTLY what that is. Bear in mind, too, they’re hyper upset from losing every friend they’ve made over the last number of years, in the form of the slaughter, so they’re ALL keyed up (especially Leo, who takes each death really hard and tries to keep fucking around to a minimum).
Gotcha, boss…looking at it from our perspective (meta-third person), that easily slipped my mind LOL
And YOU know how long they’ve been together….but that’s info for another month/year
Ahhhhh. I wasn’t totally sure about this part. Thanks for the clarification.
OMG this is *exactly* what I thought the next page needed to be! PERFECT!
Also, I heard glowing reports of your trip to Seattle today, as well as something about you in a Vampirella costume?b
HAH! I will never live that down. I was simply citing Eric’s run on Vampirella as a good way to take a character that’s otherwise sometimes treated as a one note cheesecake sexpot and turn her into something more of substance, but the kids didn’t have a frame of reference for the costume, so I described it, and made the mistake of doing it on my own frame in front of a room full of people… typical me. But a fun time had (at least on my end)! Loved it. Good school.
I cannot think of a single circumstance where Leo’s reaction would be appropriate nor particularly beneficial. The dude needs to chill. Maybe a portal beneath his feet leading to a portal directly above it to trap him in perpetual freefall for a bit.
Can a portal be opened through objects… e.g. people?
Portal-cutting is pretty much one of the coolest methods of dismemberment.
About the only thing cooler right now would be opening a tiny portal inside someone leading directly to the hard vacuum of space, and watch them get sucked inside-out.
