That would be appropriate; especially given how they referred to her disposition... I think it was something on the order of a grizzly bear with hemorrhoids... Perhaps instead Hexapuma with hemorrhoids in China Shop :twisted:[/quote]


Close, FADM Sandra Crandall had the disposition of a Grizzle bear with hemorrhoids trying to pass pinecones and was considered gross libel on Grizzlies.

Hmmm, nice one.
Scary thought, Victor getting adopted.
As if he wasn't dangerous before. :twisted:

And Victor would HAVE to be adopted by a hunter rather than a scout; same for Thandi

If Elouise gets a treecat partner (and I expect an impression, not just guardianship), Javier WILL get a treecat name, because of his place in Elouise's thoughts...

...which leads us to a very likely name for Giscard:

(this one is for you, rnh)

Javier Giscard = Lives in Heartsongs

Good call / good choice Dreamrider

I like the way you think!


(I have a little theory that eventually some of the Alignment will be caught and put on trial ... and Albreict's sentence will be being handed over to the Treecats. Who will promptly rip him apart while still on the stand, giving a whole new meaning to the the phrase "death by a thousand cuts"!)[/quote]

After they are "dealt with", their only name will be "No longer a threat"

I nominate your last line as Honorverse understatement of the year!


Thanks. :D

"Oh...OH! That's a really bad two-legs to have view you as a threat, isn't she?"

"Yep..."
COMPLETELY agree. I can definitely see Shannon Foraker categorised like this by the cats...

It sure would be cool if Shannon were adopted. But I always thought she is too preoccupied and busy for an adoption. At one point she was too self-absorbed in her 'puters. She has probably come out of her shell a bit, but enough to be adopted?

One thing that is interesting though. Being a tinkerer, if she does get adopted, Treecats may come to get all of those cool weapons we all dream about for them. I simply can't see Shannon sparing no tech for her Cat. As Honor probably would have done for Nimitz, if she could do the things Shannon can.

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

I have a feeling not many of the Treecats guarding people will be bonding. Most of the treecats interested in the bond with humans, go looking for it. It is a urning, a void to be filled.

This group of treecats are the stalthwarth souls who havn't had that interest before (for the most part). They are those types which have stood up because duty has called them to defend their people - by defending the Humans leading the defense of their families.

These are the citizen soldier of old - they will do their duties where ever that duty takes them, and then return to their farms and villages and return to their lives.

Some will be changed by their experiences and want to change profession, or fall into a bond they didn't expect. But most will want to return to their old lives.

Now I may be wrong, But I just don't see these warriors as the same personality type as those normally called to bond.
