In Deed: page 73

Here’s page 73 of the science fiction horror serial, In Deed.

My original plan for this page’s revelation wasn’t anything like this. Things got compressed due to the format, leading Ethan to say things that, logically, he shouldn’t know. He can guess… and he MAY be guessing wrong… but he can’t logically conclude that much from what he’s seen so far. As a nod to this, I have Stryger say exactly what I was thinking as I wrote it.

    WOW! Excellent work. I never saw that coming, but I love it.

    The whole dieing every day thing reminded me of an episode from the old Highlander TV series, where McCloud has marooned another immortal on an island somewhere and he starved to death every day, only to become alive again the next morning and start starving all over.

    However, back to the nannites, since they’re machines, and I believe made out of some type of metal, why can’t a large enough force or source of heat fuse them into a solid mass that cannot function?

    Yes. In fact, Ethan’s makeshift EMP should have ended the whole thing. The fact that it didn’t indicates that there are still a few more surprises in store.
