    At least we know Twila is alive! Oh I can’t wait to see where this goes from here!

    Actually, we don’t.Twila has not said anything personal, anything to suggest her mind is in her body.

    Divide and conquer? Delay tactic? Traitor in the midst?

    Takers eat their prey. Since when does your food have to be “worthy”? It just has to be edible…

    Think about how Rafer Frost described the experience of being taken. I will set up a link to it later

    Seems to be quite a lot of Flimm-prone propaganda coming from that sweet, scared little girl.

    Yes, and our intrepid band will lose it if they lose Lucius…

    Divide and conquer, for sure.


    I don’t think it’s Twila – “He’s never scared” and “He has no weakness” sound like enemy propaganda to me.


    They will split up, and then whoever is with ‘Twila’ will figure out it’s not really her… I don’t think Margo will let Lucius go on alone; if he’s killed, then they lose the Aloysium weapon. So… the kids all go back to the Mushpits?

    You note that Twila has not addressed Rufus by name?

    If it is Twila, dragging her back into that pipe would be cruel. But as Waycyber says, Lucius does have a “point”..

    “Think about how Rafer Frost described the experience of being taken.”

    “And this place I’m taking them… it is a good place. A place of joy and sweetness. And beneath it all, beneath the sweetness, they will meet HIM… My savior. And when they meet HIM, they will dream eternally, far away from the pains and sorrow of this miserable world. Ageless, mindless, carefree.”

    Uh, yeah. Translation: “You’re being brought under Slynderfell’s ice cream factory, where you’ll be put into an induced coma for a really long time.” Problem is, ageless doesn’t mean immortal. It just means that you don’t age as you’re being drained dry. So, there’s still no guarantee that any of the other Taken children from 20-30 years before are still alive. (A euphemism for death is “eternal slumber”…)

    “So… the kids all go back to the Mushpits?”

    They could try. Rufus and Biff don’t know the way back, and it’d be really suspicious if Twila tells them to follow her. What’s really going to tear Rufus apart is that he’s going to have to choose between leaving with Twila, and continuing his search for goatsucker (who he still thinks Lucius wants to kill as a traitor to the group).
