    “But using Annie as Honey’s confidant as Honey (potentially, at least) brings the Moon Era back to life, well…Bring it on!”

    I agree. Honeymoon needs a friend her age, and Annie fits the bill. As for the Moon Era, I’m excited that Mike Curtis is giving life again to that wonderful period!

    Pequod77, your poem today is wonderful. “Like Mysta she is changing in ways sure to astound.” Yes! Your affection for Mysta and Honeymoon is contagious.

    Honeymoon’s growing up! The psychic connectedness with Mysta sets up some very interesting future developments.

    I think Stiletta’s dead. Or if not, she will be very soon.

    Showing her legs like that is ominous. Silver’s comment, “not going anywhere,” is pretty clear in my mind.

    But even if she isn’t dead, will brother and sis allow her to recover? She tried to kill Sprocket. She’s a vengeful person and will probably try again. We know the Nitrates don’t have a conscience about murdering people that threaten them, as we saw with the actor when they were first introduced. Put all that together, and I don’t see Stiletta walking away from this.

    I think she’s going to be supper for Lena.

    I can think of many worse things to do than sit around all day drinking martinis and looking at a beautiful redhead dressed like Venus. Shades of Jessica Rabbit!

    I can’t understand why some of you are having such trouble with this story. I find it very entertaining.

    P.S. Thank you also for the great overview of Mysta’s development and how it corresponds to Moon Maid’s history. Great pics, too. I’m not sure which I enjoyed more, your poetry or prose. I loved them both!

    Gracious, Pequod77, your poem today is wonderful. Let me add my hearty praise to the others who have already sounded off. Your affection for Mysta is downright contagious, not that I needed any encouragement in that direction. I enjoyed this part especially:

    Not all of her changes appear on Diet’s chart
    Compassionate and caring, she’s grown a tender heart.
    Open to what tomorrow brings, changes slow or soon
    Protective to the marrow of her dear friend, Honeymoon.
    Few would have seen it coming, inexorable genetic drift
    Mysta’s rebirth ongoing, a supremely miraculous gift.
    Some beauty is just skin deep: a pretty surface masking dross
    Mysta gorgeous to the core with the strength to bear her cross.


    Yes! Mysta is not only evolving physically into Moon Maid, but her soul is transforming as well. We’ve seen evidence of this change even since she was introduced. First she was scheming to get Junior back and attacking Sparkle, and later we saw her defending Sparkle and affirming that Junior belongs to her. Afterward, instead of isolating herself from the Tracy family and becoming bitter, Mysta has embraced her new role as Honeymoon’s “aunt” and is showing genuine concern and heartfelt affection for her young protege. The idea of Honeymoon maturing into a second Moon Maid is exciting, too! Regardless, Mysta is evolving into a selfless, compassionate, noble and magnificent person. Like you well said, she has become “gorgeous to the core.”
