Yikes! So much for an emotionless exterior! Let's just say things are getting <i>real</i> exciting. Will Shanna survive? Will Agent Jones' change in policy effect the Fans raid on FiB headquarters? It's gonna be a looong weekend...

Not the first time our man Jones showed some emotion(the other time was during the Most Dangerous Game), but the only time he looked legitimately scared. <P>I find the fact that he is changing his tactics interesting. (Me, I would have killed them all already.) Interesting, because; does it really matter what he does now? If his want is destined to come true, won't any action he takes just lead to it happening? (An old gag used for time travel,predictions, curses etc.) Ex: I am told that a tree will fall on me, so I stay in my house and hide. The tree comes crashing into my roof and crushes me. Turns out it fell out of a cargo plane flying above.

It was foretold that he'd die by something falling on his head, so he moved to a completely open field, nothing overhead but sky. He was killed when a bird dropped a turtle on him, or something.

Commenting on today's page: First, who DOESN'T have impure thoughts while watching Dark-Gray Angel? I meen, mayby it just shows that I'm weird/perverted/not-fit-for-human-company, but I would LOVE to read a well-written fan fic about relations between Max, Original Sindy, and Logan. If the author REALY wanted to mess with the readers' minds, through in Virgel (Or whatever the name of the guy is that runs Jam Pony. Come on, think about the naughty conotations of that name: Jam pony. Am I the only who who's thinking of... yes, I probably am.)<P>Second: Jones is probably assuming the die is reacting to his wish that FIB wasn't around. Thus, he's assuming that Shanna's escape will lead to the destruction of FIB. And, of course, at this point FIB is doomed anyway. Shanna escapes alive: Informs the fans and then the world, and FIB dies in the glare of public opinion. Shanna dies: Fan club vows revenge, doesn't rest untill they've destroyed FIB.<P>Of course, I think we're just seeing the result of Jones's WANT... to have the Fans, in pieces, in chains, and/or in his service.<P>So, think Shanna will get blown to pieces? Think we'll see any more seens involving Allisin, Rumy, and chains? (As noted above, I'm a naught boy. Naughty, naughty... *Nodrog ahems and puts away a lime green clipboard*) And who will go over to FIB? <P>Canidates: <P>Shanna. FIB brainwashing finally triggers.<P>Tim. "And you promise you'll replace ALL the porn you burned, right? Including my cat-Suckona Card Capturer dolls?"<P>Will. "I help you, dad stays right where he is..."<P>Rikk. "I hedlp you, you save my wife's life."<P>Alisin. "I'm doing this for Rikk... for his own good..."<P>Rumy. (Um, probably to save Vanilla... I can't think of any other reason)<P>Guth. "Logicly..."<P>Kath. "With Rikk out of the sway, I WILL RULE THE WORLD!!! Um, the fan club, I meen."<P>Random Fan member #38! "I have always been here... working for FIB."

You know, I think maybe you are right and Agent Jones is reacting as if he believed the 23-sider granted his want for FIB not to exist. He probably thinks Shanna will be the instrument of his destruction. What he doesn't know is that when Lance gave up the 23-sider, the fall of Hyperman began, i.e. his want started to fall apart. Now, I don't know if this is the way the 23-sider really works, but perhaps in giving up the 23-sider, what is really happening is Agent Jones' want, the one wanting the Fans, is falling apart.<P>--Tuscahoma

I heard that Aristole died when an eagle dropped a turtle on his head, but I thought that was an old wives tale... if old wives tell tales about Greek philosophers. I never heard that he predicted his own death. <P>Oh.. and you can do quotes of messages up above yours by hitting that veeeery far right icon.. the one with the little page and the arrow.
