Perhaps one thing the loudmouth bear will note are parallels with how the girl looked at him and how he looks at humans. How he judges all humans by the way some act has come back to haunt him. Even though he wasn't in the group that harassed the kitchen, he's being judged by what they did.

Delightfully ironic if you ask me...


BTW, Elevenbane, that's referred as poetic justice... if you kick up dust at someone you consider as your enemy, the wind shifts, and you get dust in your eyes and mouth as well.

Isn't that odd, though! That little lady bear
judging the loudmouth ursine simply
because he belonged to an anti-human group,
not because she knew he'd been involved in
what happened at the church mission! Wasn't
that an undeserving injury to his lunchtime
mood! Why, everyone should be judged by who
they are, on their individual merits
and actions alone, not by something that
someone else might have done, or the way some
of the others who are like you in some ways
might be different in others! I mean, for her
to treat every single anti-human furry the
same, would be like treating every... umm..
no, wait, that's not it... Ah! Here's what
should work: it's okay to regard every human
as the same, but not okay to regard every
anti-human furry as the same.

Right? O_o



Now hold on, there. Maybe she was offended by the badge on his shirt. Plus, he had beaten up a human simply for being a human, so she might have judged him on that.

BTW, Gene, nice swan.

Everyone in the forum: Ooohhhhhh.......

What?! I'm not in love with her! Can't I complement Gene on a nice bird?

Yes....yes, there is...but I can't quite put my finger on it yet. I'm sure everyone else will figure it out just before I do due to that whole "time zone" thing, but there are extra complexities here perhaps.

Borzoi knows of these other beings that have been at the fringes of our story, does he not? I can't help but wonder where they fall in the prospectus.

I will say only this: the way in which Avariss
benefits from this hasn't been directly due to
financial input on his part. That's as far as
I'll venture on that score. :wink:



Aha! Something even shadier in the process, then?

BTW, this may have been asked before, but what exactly is Avariss Industries in the business of doing?

Where's Ted and the Furriston police when you need them?!



No one at the mission called them - this time.
But they know about what's going on, and they
will be dealing with it soon enough.

Well, being a good avian yourself, that wouldn't
be an issue. You're not the only avian who
likes the swan lady, though... :smile:

Well, you needn't think that everyone will
figure it out before you... part of having an
intelligent readership is the possibility of
having someone guess what's going on in a
story, but it's still up to me to make it
work.

They are very, very important... and the story
will reveal why.

Avariss himself is already as shady as they
come. But there's a hint of what is driving
him in what he said in his last segment: it
won't be merely financial goals that his
personal efforts will be geared to in future.
It will be maintaining the status quo of the
human species over all furries. Money is
important to him, of course, but that means
even more to him and if he has to lose money
to gain it, he'll do it.

KFM!

Avariss Industries is a conglomerate of
individual businesses that are the direct
descendants (adjusting themselves to changing
times) of their earlier counterparts, which
flourished in the era of their world when it
was legal to do just about anything to furries
that humans wanted. They derived, refined,
modified and manufactured nearly every product
they made from some species of furry lifeform.

Bev Brune was one of the last of those to be
victimized by one of their corporate laboratories
before the changes in their society, which
Avariss' forebearers (as well as many other
segments of human society) were reluctant to
comply with and therefore had to be forced to
obey the new laws.

Quoth the genecatlow:

I don't know if Avariss has thought it out fully or not, but the money isn't important. What it represents is. It is power over the world he circulates in. That is what he gets his big thrills from.
Granted, that's a primitive view for him to take, but we're talking early twenty-first century here. It's fairly common trait in such primitive times.

The problem is, a lot of people are afraid to think. Society tends to discourage it an early age.

Except, after high school, the kids who were bully magnets in high school have a chance to rise above the bullies (corporate-ladder rising; not morally rising) and become even worse (colder, harder,etc.) than the bullies in school.
For example, Bob O'Link probably was not one of the bullies in school. He was probably one of those who got picked on a lot until he figured a way to make them lose interest in him (which might explain his "Crazy Bob" act).
