Anthro speculation… if Aaron is leaning towards avian this time, which form will it be? An owl? Another stork a la Ravenscroft? A turkey would be amusing…
I remember the movie “Cimarron”, but I’d forgotten that Edna Ferber wrote it. :)
There is a story. :) I found this interesting article about it (link below). For a while that strip of land was nicknamed “No Man’s Land”.
Great idea! I have all the books as well. Definitely time for a reread.
Safe travels, Aaron, and best wishes for a smooth move and settling into your new home.
In the meantime we can all spend the next month speculating on which anthro form the Topsider will take, and what will transpire after that.
A good-natured mangling of Ford? :)
Best wishes on his move and hope it goes smoothly. I recently moved (after 23 years in my former house) and it took longer than expected to move all the accumulated stuff from Point A to Point B. I will be unpacking boxes for months…
Wally & Co.‘s current choices are very limited. Only one way out of the room with a crazed/possessed Topsider on the other side of the door. A crazed/possessed Topsider unconscious on the floor in the room. Go for it, Wally. The guy does know the layout of the facility they’re in very well. Anthro time!
“Okay, dude, welcome to freedom from your suit. You can thank us later. Time to escape this crazy place!”
Then hope Schism Syndrome doesn’t set in.
Being an anthro doesn’t make one immune, I know, but Jim was corrupted by Eye after he’d transformed, after Sarah’s betrayal. What I’m wondering is whether a transformation will force Eye to leave the Topsider and go elsewhere.
Hurray for Alan! He often comes across as a nervous sort, but he steps up and helps when needed. Duffy wisely got out of the range of that that scalpel — I don’t think the Topsider/Eye even noticed he was there. His fixation is on Wally.
Next step: what do they do now? Do they free the Topsider from the suit and have another anthro join their ranks? Will transformation free the Topsider of the Eye’s influence? With stress levels in the area through the roof, would it immediately trigger Schism Syndrome? The crazed Topsider is still presumably pounding on the door outside of the room. [cue dramatic music]
