And the library saw its largest number of visitors that day... yet for some reason, no one was checking out any books...

Well, this must be a new sensation for Mon: Being the motorboatER, instead of the motorboatEE. ;)

Not quite a traditional sleep-over ...

... ending in not quite a traditional hang-over ...

Considering the amount of after-the-crisis discussion that's queueing up in the Library stacks and waiting to be introduced, it might be a good idea to see if Mucho Mocha is willing to deliver coffee by the gallon, and pastries by the cartload. Nobody should have to talk over life-changing experiences on a caffeine-free empty stomach!

"Flannel". :lol:

Much information today, Nudge's fur feels like flannel and smells, but not strongly, of canine (at least after a lava bath). This tells me that Nudge's fur is very short, fine, and extremely dense.

The real question is how they ended up in that position? It can be taken in many different ways. I wonder how much Monica remembers? She's probably thinking what did I do now?
Ambush questions are fun. Watching the mental impact of them as they distort, or crumble, opinions based on faulty logic.

Considering that Monica is still clothed, nothing much can have happened.

Probably.

I really can't think of a better way to wake up...........actually I can........but some of our readers are a might sensitive, so I'll refrain from posting. ;)

Agreed. Now the question is "How will the strip spend the rest of the week?"

Looks like it might be the time for Monica (and us) to get briefed on her new status/job and see how Monica handles meeting the vamps. But It may be a while before we get to see Monica’s response when she finds out about McBride’s little foibles.

There are no things man was not meant to know. There are, perhaps, things man is too dumb to figure out, but that's a different problem. -- Michael Kurland
I love that line. I've used it in a .sig before ... but i remember it a bit differently - something along the lines of "He did not believe there were Things Man Was Not Meant To Know. He was quite willing to accept that there were Things Man Was Too Dumb To Figure Out."

Quite willing to concede that i might have it wrong.

Mike Kurland is one of my favourite not-nearly-prolific-enough authors.

If only everything he writes didn't sound like the first of a series that never gets continued.

The one time i ran into him at a convention - twenty-plus years ago - i particularly complained that there REALLY needed to be a sequel to Pluribus ... and he told me that he had written one ... an editor wanted changes ... and he trunked it!

Arrrggghhh!

I think I like your take on the line a little better than the actual line. But to know a favored author has a sequel locked away because of editorial differences? Pure torture...

Well, last we'd seen, Monica had passed out / cried herself to sleep laying on Nudge (and partially on Euryale's lap) following all the unpleasantness. From there to this isn't too far a step.

I anticipate a good deal of angst, possibly anger, and continuing distress and curiosity on Monica's part as to just WHY she went so far off the deep end. Fortunately, since she may consider herself reconciled with Phix, and Nudge is right there, she may get answers. Assuming she stays to ask questions and doesn't just POIT away.
