Correct, you may have the floor. Very Happy

Well, creating that thread might have had something to do with me being able to answer that question, I'll allow. Wink

Thank you, Avatar, and I'll try to come up with a new Gap Quiz question shortly.

New question:

By the time that Nick beams over to Deaner Beckmann's with Mikka, Vector, Sib, and Pup, he has made sure that Mikka will be unable to interfere with his intentions against Sorus.
How did Nick accomplish neutralizing Mikka?

That's a logical answer, I grant you, but that's not it. There is more fundamental reason, a situation Nick made sure existed that prevented Mikka's interfering with his plans for Sorus at Beckman's lab.

A hint is called for at this point. I've removed the answer from the following Gap passage. Hope this helps get the answer for somebody.

Quote:
Nick Succorso walked in the light g of the Lab's asteroid like he was riding a cloud. He was elevated by triumph, nearly giddy with aspiration Hungers which had hag-ridden his life were about to be fed: were being fed. Trumpet has become his. For reasons which meant nothing to him, and didn't interest him, Warden Dios had given him his own pet cyborg. Mikka and Vector were stuck taking his orders. Soon he would possess an effectively limitless supply of UMCPDA's mutagen immunity drug--all the wealth he would ever need. Morn herself was his as surely as Trumpet and Angus, ripe to be hurt.

And Soar was here. Sorus Chatelaine was here.

His heart and head were so full that they seemed to lift him from step to step, almost carrying him off his feet. He could hardly keep track of the deck.

With Mikka and Vector at his shoulders, Sib and Pup behind him, he left Trumpet's airlock to enter the access passage which led into Deaner Beckmann's installation.

Mikka glared murderously past her bandage, but Vector had perfected his look of mild calm, and his face showed nothing. As for Sib and Pup, Nick didn't give a shit what they thought or felt. He intended to sacrifice them in any case. Get even with them for daring to turn against him. Only Vector truly mattered. Mikka was just cover. And he'd made sure that ___ ______ ____ ____ ___ __. She wouldn't interfere because she wouldn't be able to guess his intentions.

And he'd made sure that she didn't know Soar was in.

I was barking completely up the wrong tree until your clue. I was thinking it was in ADAHGA, but no! Chaos and Order! And the only reason I got it is because I found the passage Very Happy Good question!

Yes, Nick made sure Mikka was completely ignorant of Sorus' presence at the Lab. Well done, StevieG! Ride em Cowboy 7-up Applaud Applaud Applaud

It's your question! Very Happy Twisted Evil

This Day All Gods Die contains POVs from 15 different characters. Hashi starts and end the book.

Can you name the 15 characters? Very Happy

I'll try to do it without peeking, at least for this post. 3 Monkeys Big Grin

The usual suspects: Hashi, Angus, Morn, Davies, Min, Warden, Koina, Holt.

Also, I recall the following characters have TDAGD chapters named after them:

Dolph, Lane, Cleatus, Maxim, Marc, Sixten, and...?...darn, can't think of the fifteenth, yet. Crying or Very sad Embarassed It's like there's a black hole in my memory! Sob

Soooo close Very Happy

So I am pretty sure I checked it (of course I may have made a mistake) but I think Sixten wasn’t a POV character. However I might be wrong... There is still one more character to find Very Happy

Even though it was isolated, was my clue anywhere near the mark? (I think Cord might have misinterpreted it, though it sounds like it sent him in a good direction anyway.)

That is what the hint suggested to me...not that I would have gotten all of the other fourteen and merited the hint.

Nice bar-raising question from StevieG!

Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

Drat! Oh well. She was so pivotal, I thought surely she had a POV chapter. But then I wouldn't have even come close on the others.

I too was surprised that she didn't have a chapter in TDAGD - must have been Chaos and Order. I had to go and check again, but she definitely didn't have a chapter.
