Not quite, CH.

Quote:
He treasured her advice too much to let her die.

Although he was sometimes hard-pressed to interpret it. Her wish for his ruin was so palpable that he had to be extraordinarily careful in how he sifted her insights, what valence he assigned to her pronouncements. As a result, his encounters with her were a challenge which he found profoundly stimulating.

In truth, he could almost certainly have afforded to let her die any time during the past half century. He liked talking to his mother; he profited from her advice. But he could have done without it.


So although he benefited from her good advice, he didn't really need it.

Just noticed Av's post come through as I was typing this - also not quite right Very Happy

Okay...a reason could be that she reminded Holt he was mortal and capable of making mistakes.

Thank you, StevieG! I'll try to find another question early next week.


And, I agree, Holt's an utter prick to do what he does to his own mother. Clearly, he has no conscience.

Probably an easy one but... Very Happy

In one of my favourite moments of the Gap series, Sorus waits for a specific moment until she smokes Milos Taverner with her impact pistol, and ...

Quote:
His skull exploded like a smashed melon.


What moment was she waiting for?

I'll have to give this some thought, but it has something to do with Milos getting distracted.

Did she wait till Calm Horizons fired on Trumpet?

Thats what was going down att.

She positioned herself adjacent to an asteroid ☄️ big enough to give thee cover.

Ding ding!! Congrats Sky, that is correct.

Nana Party

Quote:
Trumpet had set herself behind a substantial piece of rock, obviously trying to block Calm Horizons' fire. The asteroid was four times the size of the gap scout. Was it big enough to protect the ship from a super-light proton blast? Just one?

Yes.

Good.

Sorus wondered how long she would have to hold her breath. Then she knew.

The defensive's proton gun blasted. Without transition the asteroid shattered, hailing shards like shrapnel at the gap scout. Trumpet's shields held. She survived.

But now she had no cover. As soon as Calm Horizons recharged her cannon, Trumpet was finished.

'Captain!' scan called, 'the cruiser's increased her rate of fire. Matter cannon, lasers, torpedoes - she's throwing everything she has at Calm Horizons!'

Trying to defend Trumpet.

Fine.

Now.

Sorus let herself breathe.

'Oh, Milos,' she murmured sweetly. 'Milos Taverner, you lump of Amnion shit. I have something for you.'

Her tone must have touched a nerve in the human residue of his mind, at an atavistic instinct for panic. Despite his growing inflexibility, he turned sharply, nearly flung himself around to face her. His fingers danced on hhis SCRT.

In one motion Sorus swept up her impact pistol and fired straight at his face.


Over to you Sky Very Happy
