A prelude to a tag of war perhaps?


I could almost imagine this as a "silent" panel, with Talon and Beryl talking and reacting to each other through sanzai, just based on the nonchalant expression on Alex's face.

Beryl: "I want to comb his hair."
Talon: "No, I want to comb his hair!"
Beryl: "Mine!"
Talon: "MINE!"

Alex Thinking: {Uh oh..It's like their closing in on me.. like predators surrounding a kill...?}

or

Beryl to Talon ~ Sanzai {I'm watching those hands..you hussy!}
Tallon ~ Sanzai {What?!? Me? I just want to ... hold his 'hand' again..}
Alex, Thinking {Am I missing something here?}

lol! :lol:

"Centuries later, the Battle of Fort Jardin would become a legendary event that helped shape the Quadrant.
Few would know what actually happened that day. Some think it was the first combined combat action made between Humanity and the Loroi. Others say it was a last stand for some involved.
A few radical trolls say it was just a pillow fight on a shuttle...but no one takes them seriously. In any event, the results of the battle helped shape the political and strategic climate of the Quadrant for generations of Loroi and many more generation of Humans."

~Excerpt from "Humanity and The Umiak War"

Ah, Talon vs Beryl again. “My science project!” vs “my non-gloomy entertainment!”

Based on the cylindrical object Beryl’s holding:
Talon: What are you doing?! I heard he gets stinky if he eats loroi food.
Beryl: I’m sure a marshmallow will be fine!

I think the cylindrical shape is part of Beryl's uniform, not something she's holding.

Well, I think subtlety will be thrown out the window soon. If anything else, Alex seems the least guarded around those two.

Could be that they're telling alex about them being part of the same child group, which is why they're pointing to their identical tattoos.

Talon seems more pleased and natural.

Spiral seems flirty, even if she's doing it unconsciously. But on the other hand...she's a combat pilot. If Loroi combat pilots are like Human combat pilots....yeah. Bold.

Knowing that Arioch is a Homeworld fan...

Homeworld: Cataclysm - Somtaaw "Seeker" Reconnaissance Fighter

Quote:
As a result of the fact that most recon patrols require spending long periods of time in a small cockpit, many Seekers pilots are young, single women of smaller stature. This has led to deep recon missions being referred to as "Heartbreak Patrols"…but whether this is more to do with the stress they put on fledgling relationships or the disruptions caused by these pilots making up for lost time upon their return is not known.

I just realized something: that's beryl and Spiral in the original poster. Are they going to get into a girl fight over a male?

Is this normal for the blue girls when a highly valued male is around? Is this the real reason males aren't on the front lines? Is alex going to see if they saved a bag of popcorn for the inevitable?

Oddly the two shoulder to shoulder somehow reminds me of Jem and the Holograms. Its probably the hair and face tattoo. Their hair isn't big enough for 80's style glam-rock, but somehow it triggers some very old memories. Though it may be the lips as well.

Looking forward to more culture specifics! Not up on my alium alphabet - are the tattoos any particular letter or number?

edit: Know answer's probably coming in the comic, but hate waiting to find out things that snag my curiosity...

They're grouped up like a character reveal in an anime opening.

Spiral and Talon's hair might not be, but Fireblade's certainly is!

Not as much. They are more in disagreement over the right way to treat a male. Beryl seems to favor the "coddle and tuck them away safely" type, but Talon is - interestingly enough - more open minded and ready to see Alex eye to eye.

Yes, that is interesting. We've seen a variety of approaches, including Tempo's diplomatic treatment and Stillstorm's 'take it out the back and shoot it.' I guess Beryl wants Alex safe and sound so a) she can complete an important assignment and b) she can (cheerfully) squeeze as much information out of him as possible.

Based on the latest background posted, we might get to see tiny versions of Spiral and Talon.

THe current pic on the wip thread is a fire with a gorgeous skyline, so are they going t whip out the equivalent of marshmallows, or are they going to do something to keep their pink friend warm?

It's a reference to the Diral-seii coming of age ceremony in which it is thrown into a bonfire and retrieved by the leader of the group.

Story time!
Indeed looks like a part of the story of how the diral succeeded....
I wonder if the enthusiastic telepathic storytelling also helps in conveying these pictures to Alex, subconsciously or otherwise....

This is the sort of thing I am looking forward to, Loroi backstory. I especially want to hear Fireblades backstory.
