When you go duck hunting, you take along a gun ... and a decoy, to distract the ducks.

Katharine and Atsali are the gun...

FPF, you quack me up! :D

EDIT: So the spider (crystal) did eat the baby! It wasn't protecting it after all!

So, let's theorize: The "Ancestor Baby" doll in this comic represented the nu gui, while the other six represented the quadruplets who were combined to make Kath. This is super-speculation on my part, simply because...well, who could have known anything about any of this? At least, enough to carve all these dolls?

Five minutes?

Why? To maximize the (comedic) effect?
perl -e 'print "Just another Perl ${\(trickster and hacker)},";'

The Sidhekin proves that Sidhe did it!

From my post yesterday:

Maybe they're making fun of the creature in the crystal... and this is what the Nu Gui sees? Kinda like rapping on the glass at the gorilla house at the zoo...

Yeah... I can just see Pratt and McBride... "Like rawr and stuff!!!" Or even better... "Nya Nya Nya!!! Who's in the crystal now, beeyotch!!!"

And we all know that this always goes over well... hence today's Nu Gui putting the fangly duo in their place by jumping out at them... LOL

Fang in there you two!!!!

"You attack them head on, and I'll create a diversion by screaming and fainting." Okay, so Lily & Suzy's part was to create a diversion by screaming and fainting. Heck, I can do that. They did drop the ball on the fainting part though. Needed more rehearsals. Then again, an Anasazi was needed so Pratt did fulfill an additional role. Well, her hand did.

So the monster is bottled up. Is it aware? Can it be talked to? What do they do with the crystal now? A paper weight at the Library front desk? A souvenir for Kath's desk? Seems like she might be a good keeper of the crystal. It would be taunted by Kath's mere presence, being Anasazi and all. Some sort of punishment is in order and punishment in the supernatural world is nothing if not cruel and unusual. The only problem is, punishment doesn't seem to work as a corrective measure in the supernatural world. The being is what it is, and that's that. Only the threat of death (and maybe being eaten) seems to be a deterrent.

All in all, though, I would like to know what NG's motives really were. Why it did what it did. Must be more than just being killed by Kath. Assuming it actually is the spirit of that baby. It may be really mad about something, but it was still rational and thoughtful. Not just a wild animal, lashing out. But, I have a feeling this part of the story may die here or be submerged for a long time before more is learned, if it ever is.

I'm going to do a sound check on the lectern microphone for the post-arc artist's deconstruction of what we've just been shown in the confusion corner conference area. There will be sandwiches and pizza along with slides and visual effects.

It does sound like them. Does this mean Nu Gui's are stored in Thuperware? Don't forget to burp it before sealing it.
Ambush questions are fun. Watching the mental impact of them as they distort, or crumble, opinions based on faulty logic.

I get the impression that if Nu Gui was the baby kachina doll in actuality rather than symbolically, then Brandi/SDO has only been possessed since the 1970's. The assumption was that Katherine was the one, when we can be sure now she's the six.

Well...I guess that's that. :shock: It just seems all too easy...I mean, no one was stabbed in the head by one of their best friends...and there wasn't any poit-tattoo-removal...or endless deaths of "self" witnessed in a backwards flowing space-outside-of-time. :P Now I just want to know what the heck happened and where "Thup" has gone (thank you Dily V for naming it)...and will they be able to communicate with it so we can get a better understanding of what's been happening? Or is Bud just going to explain it all over a cuppa in the Library since she seemed to be the most aware and had Demon contacts to help her out?

THANK GOD IT'S NOT FRIDAY!!! :P
