Karno ( [link]
) and I recently collaborated on another 'Rat-ionality Matters' comic ( [link]
), which showed a whole variety of variations of Dee the rattess. I know Brainy Twilight ( [link]
) likes brains in jars, so sent her the link ( [link]
), and she even came up with an improved design ( [link]
). So I've decided to adopt the whole idea into Dee's personal narrative: after Earthly oligarchs have gotten sufficiently fed up with the Eichsfeldian colony, they start arranging for serious assassination attempts - one of which comes so close to killing Dee, that she had to lose almost all of what remained of her organic body. If I'm lucky, I'll manage to get a story or comic made out of the details.
And don't worry - the setting does include full-sensory VR and lifelike android bodies, so she can still run around in her previous ratty form whenever the mood strikes her. She'll just have her brain located elsewhere when she does...
