You know, I was thinking--there might actually be a lot of salvageable people in the LC on the corruption thing. Because evidently its normalized corruption just the Way things Are. Everyone takes a little bit, because that's how its done.

So a lot of people who were just taking their cut might actually be horrified when they realize that they've been part of a system literally destroying the LC.

You've put WAY too much thought in to this...  ::)

You say that like it's a bad thing...

So anyone converted to SCMR-bodies would likely have a sensor within them to detect an upcoming KF jump and put themselves on standby, waking up when the jump is complete.  Li-F double-jumps might cause an issue, until the next program update to handle double-jumps.

My only concern there is that shutting down parts of the brain for a jump may not be possible, depending on things like what parts of the brain are being handled synthetically and the startup time of the synthetic parts.

I'm not gonna write that death scene, but you guys all cottoned on to the fact Lizzie's fate in THIS universe is the worst one yet.

So I was watching Strange Evidence on the Science Channel tonight

and they talked about Claytronics and  Smart Dust.  And all I thought of was this story.
"For the Angel of Death spread his wings on the blast, And breathed in the face of the foe as he passed:And the eyes of the sleepers waxed deadly and chill, And their hearts but once heaved, and for ever grew still!"

I've finished archiving/reposting the story to the BattleTech Fanon Wiki for safe keeping.  So it will be there for folks to read.

---Readers Cap On---

I like the story, it seemed to get lost by 3055.  Inner Sphere has totally forgot the Machine Plague that was consuming the Inner Sphere planet by planet. Then we don't hear anything about it. It gone...not mentioned again.  That part little upsetting/disappointing.   Ngo could have been used as key to allow plague to stop or there could been epic fight or something.  Raider war against the Clans & Elizabeth's struggle try fend off the virus seem take center stage sort of.  Its about her of course, but the main threat was dropped.  That's disappointing.

I wish there was more, Elizabeth's ending is fine with me.
