Take This Job and Shove It

Take This Job and Shove It published on 13 Comments on Take This Job and Shove It
This page exists for kind of an odd reason: I didn’t want to show a whole page of Trilby and Jill starting up the plane. I didn’t think that would be particularly interesting, and in any case 50 years of Star Trek has taught people what it looks like when a science fiction craft is turned on. I asked myself what Alex would be doing, and it occurred to me that she would be having a showdown with the man who can’t read a room. In retrospect, this seems like the only good choice, but I only came to it after rummaging through my brain for awhile. Our World has never had the kind of writing I’ve wanted for it, but my instincts are getting better.

    Well, this is quite the arc for flashbacks. I was wondering why O’Raelly befriended and then hated Alexsi. In fact, I wonder if it was a love/hate relationship. I swear that O’Raelly is giving Alexsi the love eyes.

    PLOT TWIST: O’Raelly has the hots for Ron’s dad!

    And if I were a wagering man, Ron actually takes after his mom in both species and appearance. I just feel bad for Ron though as it seems that neither one of his parents really wanted him. That…that just sucks on so many levels.

    And, if I were a betting man, O’Really pretty much got lucky with all this Devion stuff. I wonder though…did he have some type of aurora around him because of his first encounter with them?

    Who names their kid Fire Soul? 😛

    Alex being mad is kind of scary… particularly when she’s operating a large industrial mech

  • Adam Carranco

    I can just see her when they get home “I had a job for a change… never doing that again”

  • Gaboris

    Oh boy. Alex is BRUTAL at quitting a job. O_O

      Nah if she were brutal he’d be a stain.

    So we now know the reason Alex doesn’t work: She was once and OSHA Inspector.

    He better! XD Angry Alex is quite the sight to see, good thing she’s usually cheerful/bouncy!
    I’m beginning to wonder what ‘rendition’ means in this context, probably nothing good.

      I think it’s the same euphemism that was used a few years ago to describe “capturing” “enemy combatants” and shipping them off somewhere convenient for “questioning”. I.e., kinda not good.

    Ten billion points to Alex for this. Let’s hope he learned something from this.

  • MrAMP

    DANG! I’ve never actually seen Alex this upset before.

  • yachris

    Excellent choice on the page, this is a great moment.

    Seriously?! They put her in a mech suit and didn’t give her training for it?! Who the heck is running this show?!
