I was sworn under court order not to talk of this for a total of 5 years.

Son, your mother says I have to hang you. Personally I don't think this is a capital offense. But if I don't hang you, she's gonna hang me and frankly, I'm not the one in trouble. —cthia's father. Incident in ? Axiom of Common Sense

A bonded interogator let aboard Imperator to question a suspected Mesan operative...

Far into the future, Beth and Eloise have grandkids and they meet while they are only 9-yrs-old. They came to be very good friends in the end, but it was a rocky beginning right from the start, with Beth's grandchild bragging just a bit about what transpired right before the forming of the GA. It went a little something like this...

Young tried to rape Honor, but she wasn't going to take it lying down.

BREAKING NEWS

A very old wiretapping of a secret meeting in the House of Lords reminiscent of the Watergate scandal of yore is found and "leaked" to the public. Parts of audio is inaudible as the subject seems to be spouting incoherent vehemence through gritted teeth...

"Have you all gone mad! That out of control lunatic simply cannot be allowed to have a seat in the Lords!"

"Why not?"

" :o " ...

"BECAUSE IT'D ONLY BE A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE THAT HOLIER-THAN-THOU JUMPED-UP BASEBORN BITCH..."

“None of that would’ve been necessary if not for the fucking Manties.” Gervais’s voice was a snarl. “It’s that goddamned loose warhead Gold Peak’s fault.


Is that a loose MHk-16 gold peaked warhead or an MHk-23?

My word! What kinds of mischief did Henke and Harrington engage in as roomies?

One went on to become a loose warhead and the other a loose cannon!

If she weren’t such a maniac, if we hadn’t known she’d be coming for Mesa as soon as she possibly could, we wouldn’t have had to rush Houdini that way and Mom and Dad would be right here on Darius right now.”

I guess they aren't so smart after all. Didn't even know that M comes after L. [M]anties.
