Oh, no. Don't start illuminating us with those puns of yours.

Is Castela holding a torch for Hiroshi?

So, her fine control allows her to replace her flashlight with the plasma discharge? Good for Pickle!

A laser shooting out of one hand would be a problem. A plasma blast on the other hand, no problems

And Digit is apparently referring to the kids as "rodents" . . .

Illuminating, no?

If she were shooting a laser from her hand, would it be a flesh light?

All of these light jokes are dazzling...

That said, let's consider. Castela is up and heading towards a place of some privacy. She has heard there is a world grid anchor in the basement. If she can still unravel her form into vines and creep that way she can probably get into any place not hermetically sealed; especially if there are air duct connections. The question is, is there any reason for her to risk suspension and danger by trying to get to the anchor? I can think of none; but perhaps I'm overlooking something.

No, because if you google that term, you'd see why. Make sure safe search is disabled when you do, though.

I don't know about Lee M, but as far as I'm concerned, it's much more fun if I pretend not to know... :P

Since plasma generation commonly involves a very high frequency electromagnetic discharge, Castela is probably involved in a "Hertz on fire" relationship with Hiroshi.
