That smile . . .

Count my body parts, count my wallet, count my relatives.

Hmmph!

What is she up to?

She's playing hockey, in the mischievous style of Robin Goodfellow.

Somebody's sure to get Pucked.

I thought she wasn't allowed to play hockey, because she was a predat?

...or is this for a private in-house league for non-bevys only?

And Dave: the Pun Jar spit that one out and demands you give it this one instead.

That was Atsali.

OTOH, I'd be even more worried about Castela playing field hockey...

Technically, she's not a predat ... but i wonder if they let paras who are basically water buffalo play with the other bevies?

She may not be a predator but she is an alpha

Those aren't shin guards - well, not purpose-built shin guards; those are her boots.

Since she is genetically derived from a tree, "barking her shins" wouldn't have quite the same consequences, would it?

Possibly an omega, then, since there's nothing remaining after her.

"Omega" being her nickname... based on her certified firepower rating, "Oh, megatons per second."

She will, of course, have to trade in that knotted tie for a bolo.

The Pun Jar would like a word with you, but it's currently arguing precedence with the extremely cranky ghost of an SF author.

I knew, but had only "recently" learned that it was that long ago.

There are some "new" Bolo books out, and I think the authors did a pretty good job.

Seems like one is The Road to Damascus . . . seems like it was John RIngo and Linda Evans . . . Yes.

He was not ... pleasant .. to know in his later years.

Last i encountered him was in '83 - after his stroke, he became increasingly cranky and difficult to deal with.

A friend who chaired a convention had a story about him dumping his plate on the restaurant floor and declaring that he could shit better scrambled eggs.
