All the intermission pages have been deleted, as promised. The images should all be visible on the extras page.

Nobody said "hey, where'd her headphones go?"

Well, there's your answer to the question you never asked.

I fucking love Hans in a non-techno-pedo-gay way. "Don't unleash my sexy bald head!"

I think he's pretty great, too.

I haven't a "witty" comment today. I'm sure everyone is happy.

No I wouldn't say that. I'd be the dumbass to come along with the-

The young lady seems to be in one of the 'complicated' parts of her youth...

Can't please everyone all the time, especially if they're 12-year-old girls.

The same is true for 62-year-old 'girls' too, from my experience. I went back and reread your excellent work along with the comments too, but I can't remember (nothing unusual about that!) the young lady's name. Or the young man's either.

What would you like them to be named?

Fiorinda and William seem to fit their characters as so far revealed.

Your name sense is terrifying!

... so, no, their names are something else.

At least there was no actual forgetfulness involved. (got to keep a close check on that!)

She looks like an Ann or some variant of that name. He looks like a Joseph.

It's always interesting to see the sorts of names people think of when they see characters.

The blond kid apparently grabbed the short end of the stick: Bill? Joe?

I don't think "Ann" fits, maybe because I know a few too many "Ann"s. Actually, in my notes she's "Waverly", for some reason...

Sort of like that ink blot test. What you see depends on which set of eyes you brought along...

Joey or Joseph is what he would go by, I was thinking.

It just occurred to me, the blond kid's big dramatic surprise didn't last very long at all!

It's Gretel's fault.

Speaking of that, it seems (to me) that the robots tend to think and act more or less along one line at a time with strong attention to the details of their action. (not sure how clear this is...)

The less exactly human the IO is, the more straightforward the thought processes.

The difference between wired people and liquid people. Thank you for taking the time to help me scrape some of the rust off of my brain. (The Cats won't talk to me about any thing that they can't put in their mouth!) Good night and thank you once again for sharing your fine skills with us all!

Gretel can spit? Does that serve an actual purpose, or is it a "more human-like" thing?

The best battery technology uses a plant-oil based fluid. "Best" meaning "good potency, low toxicity, reasonably light, very cheap". The oil is also a great coolant, and is often used for that.

Jim always goes kind of crazy with the plumbing, though. It's kind of a trademark.

where exactly did the headphones come from though?

I thought it was clear: they shrink into a spoon shape. You can see her pulling them out of her hem-pocket and inflating them.
