Being Copper, I could only make it worse; if I'd taken direct control, forced that skin to drop the paddles, I would have given myself away.
I take brief communion, tendrils writhing forth from my faces, intertwining: The world has burned everything else. I can still feel joy, should there be sufficient cause. It's not an easy thing to admit.
I have not been Childs for very long; almost half this tissue remains unassimilated. MacReady and Copper had found part of me at the Norwegian camp: How inefficient their morphology! Their suits had become as familiar to him as the seldom seen faces.
Partial pressure suits are a trade-off: So much wisdom I had. I was so much more, before the crash. Artwork by Earl Oliver Hurst.
I may control the motor systems but assimilation takes time. My cells read the signs and my cells conformed, mindless as prions. They are only used as a precaution, worn inside the habitat module during times when there is danger of it springing a leak, such as during lift-off or if an enemy spacecraft is shooting at you.
I could have added my strength to the coming battle. How inefficient their morphology! Outer valves opened; residual air screamed out into the interstellar void. The lightly traded stock advanced 0.
I am stray and disconnected thoughts, doubts and the ghosts of theories. The present holds nothing but annihilation. It was not manipulated into rejecting change. Go home, or to the nearest lifeguard or fire station to treat it.
Survival depended on blending in, and it was not enough to merely look like this world.
Besides, some of my best friends are lawyers. Unused to inventory—why catalog body parts that only turn into other things at the slightest provocation?
Some suit designers took a tip from deep sea diving suits and postulated mechanical pincers instead of gloves. This allows the magnet in the heel to attach. I hear the sounds of carnage. I wore these skins as I've worn countless others, took the controls and left the assimilation of individual cells to follow at its own pace.
But I was only riding a searchlight. Hiding away in their bony caverns, folded in on themselves. I remember the crash, though. It looks up as I approach. I see myself through the window, loping through the storm, wearing Blair.
Nor could I imagine what it did. Norris was the weak node:Port Manteaux churns out silly new words when you feed it an idea or two. Enter a word (or two) above and you'll get back a bunch of portmanteaux created by jamming together words that are conceptually related to your inputs.
For example, enter "giraffe" and you'll get. Archives and past articles from the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Daily News, and joeshammas.com Suits can be Soft, Hard-shell, Semi-Rigid/Hybrid or Skintight. Soft suits have flexible exteriors.
This means they cannot be pressurized to the same level as the inside of the habitat module or the space suited person will be forced into a posture like a star-fish and be unable to bend any joints. I was so much more, before the crash. I was an explorer, an ambassador, a missionary. I spread across the cosmos, met countless worlds, took communion: the fit reshaped the unfit and the whole universe bootstrapped upwards in joyful, infinitesimal increments.
