To the Future

- Seems Catherine is finally starting to catch up to what most of us have suspected for a while.
And if what Shields is saying is true, the rift between them has alot more facets than we originally might have believed.
Here's hoping they don't find themselves in the same room together any time soon. The result could be
quite explosive.

And Shields, always on for expediency isn't evne going to hang around to see what comes of Rai's long night before deciding what he does from here? That's cold.

- dammit the new system is making me miss updates 8I I keep forgetting to check. Also I can't remember, has Shields stated the curse will end if a marked person makes it passed the deadline? Or is he just assuming Rai will fail and is focusing on the survivor of this iteration? Could be as simple as him not wanting Rai with him if he survives or not.

- I'd been wondering for a while about Mbali's...parentage. But of course, this is YOU we're talking about. This could very well be a red herring.

Either way, I wonder how he survived those shots. Man, I still think there has to be some supernatural stuff going on there.

Also, I appreciate how realistically you're treating Cat's physical condition. It annoys me somethings that action heroes can shrug off bullet wounds. Meanwhile, getting two measly stitches in my finger from a potato slicer injury nearly put me out of commission for a couple days. Couldn't drive. Couldn't do art. Had to type with one hand. It sucked. Of course, not only do you treat her injuries realistically, but you also managed to avoid bogging down the story with the lengthy recovery process.

You are a Darn Good Writer, sir.

- Nice reveal on his relationship to Mbali. :)

Cat may be physically impaired, but there's nothing wrong with her mind. ^^

Shields is right about her being in better shape a year from now, and Shields has experience in physical training. The situation has possibilities.....

- @RedClause: The idea is to update around midnight monday morning my local time. Which would make it somewhere in the afternoon in US time zones. That's the idea, anyway. I have zero buffer, so I don't always hit it.

According to Shields and his rules, which is all we have to go on, if Rai can survive until midnight icelandic time (ZULU) he'll be safe for another year. The curse will still be on him, and the only two ways of getting rid of it entirely, is either kill the last other survivor, or go back to the cave where it all began, and remove their names from the wall.

Shields has hinted the he doesn't hold Rai in very high regard. What his plan is regarding Rai, should he survive, we'll just have to wait and see.

- @melaredblu: Now that you mention it... He does seem to suggest that Mbali might be his daughter, but he doesn't come out and say it. Curious.

At some point, alot more of Cat's recovery in the clinic was shown. I'm a huge fan of the Avatar shows, Legend of Aang/Korra, and I'll admit to changing the rhythm of Cat's story in the second chapter based on the 4th season of Korra, where she suffers a life changing injury, we get a few glimpses of her treatment, and the rest is her coming to terms with what has happened to her, physically and mentally.

It's like Shields said earlier. Cat will never be 100% again. She will always carry this with her. How far she can go will depend on many factors, not the least of which is recovering spiritually. Come chapter 3 we'll see the most serious damage might be done to her psyche.

- @Delta-v: Shields is ever the pragmatist, and he's planning for the future. He might be overestimating how willing Cat is to move on, though.
