Obvious Question Nick should ask: But why should she be found if she doesn’t want to be? o_O
And *why* do these Daughters of the Air want to assist? Why do they care? O_o
A group of (probably) feminine AIs might want to offer her the chance to join them
The baron must be part goat.
Sure. Classical unicorns have several goatish features, especially the beard and the cloven hooves, both of which Baron displays.
Unicorns and goats are both pretty horny, to be sure.
I’ll get my coat.
That was my point.
I’ll join you.
“It” refers to the horn, of course.
I’m suddenly hoping that we’re going to see what Lovelace has been up to since her emancipation.
Daughters of the Air… is Aimee the Little Mermaid?
Nope, that’ll be the AI they send. She’ll fit in perfectly with Whimsy.
But I still hope it’s Lovelace, she was great.
The Daughters of the Air are going to have their own agenda. This should be good.
Oooookay, who called in the Bene Gesse… uuugh… I mean… sorry, wrong universe…
For those who don’t read nick’s blog, he was once electrocuted by one of those AIs for piggybacking on someone else’s wifi.
Is the blog still active? I used to read it when I read LiveJournal, but that was like a decade ago…
(Investigated a bit. It moved to WordPress a few years back, and has posts from… November?)
Link for lazy people:
Can’t believe I forgot to include the link, thanks.
Yeah, November 2014. I don’t know what’s going on with it – neither Nick (in character) nor the authors said anything about stopping it, but it hasn’t updated in years.
I knew they’d come up before, but I couldn’t, for the life of me, remember where. Thanks for the refresher! It’s good to know that the blog is at least somewhat canon.
“I ain’t got no body…nobody cares for me.”
I like how subtley Whimsy insults the DotA in the most profane way.
What I don’t understand is how someone without a body can claim superiority over someone who can pull the ethernet cord. Self-preservation demands control over the environment.
On second thought, maybe I am reading Whimsy’s comment wrong. Is a fetish for intimacy really that debilitating?
I’m wondering who Whimsy means by “us” here. She doesn’t seem to have much in common with anyone else in the room (apart from an inability to procreate naturally, I suppose). She’s no more corporeal than the DotA are, for one thing.
I’m also not sure whether or not Baron was actually invited along to this meeting. His contributions haven’t contributed all that much so far.
Well, keep in mind that she does have a body since without her employees she would not exist. They might be her cells since she’s their group consciousness, but at the end of the day without them she would not exist. I guess the difference between her and Phil Foglio’s “Psmith” from Buck Godot is that unlike Psmith her “cells” are still individual entities who can leave her when they please or stay part of her without any loss of identity.
Without her employees and assets, she would just be an empty shell. Without their computers, the DotA would just be a pattern of magnetic stuff on a hard disk somewhere.
Both rely on the presence of physical objects, but that doesn’t mean either is itself physical.
Buck Godot! Wonder where my copies of the limited series are?
Just went back to the start of the meeting btw. No the Baron wasn’t invited. Whimsy just flew up and started talking to Nick and neither of them have bothered to tell him to go away yet. So I guess he’s just there in the capacity of Annoying Friend Who Both Still Like. ^_^
No, that insult isn’t pointed at the DotA; She’s responding to Baron Mistycorn’s comment by effectively saying “well, *you* kinda make their point”….
If Aimee is Nick with a few tweaks…doesn’t that mean Nick was attracted to his own daughter?
No! It means he was attracted to his anima. Much different.
Less daughter, more “alternate universe version”. I’m guessing that at some point, Unity will have a very amusing talk with him about that.
So Nick will have a bunch of airy, snobbish philosophical intellects on hand (wing?) and Mistycorn’s earthy snarking on the other. How many other elements are going to get into the mix before it’s done?
Enough for a brain in a jar to wish he could drink.
What sort of female demographic were they testing to think they would get good results by coping Nick and switching his gender?
I love the name “Daughters of the Air”!
This storyline has me wondering if Nick, as happy as he is with being an helicopter, ever misses a couple features of his old body. Although, seeing how he lived, i honestly doubt he got much use of them.
Given that Baron Mistycorn likes to hang with him, I’m guessing “no non-solo use”.
