So basically the problem is Rory keeps hauling the fabric way more out of whack than it needs to go when he pulls it on; a more practiced hand doesn't stretch the fabric as far to start with, so it fits much more closely immediately.
He's in luck in that the blue body suits react to sudden pulls by shrinking back to shape, 'cause there's no time to wait for it to heat shrink if, say, the hull is getting blown open.
I love it! Rory finally chose to retort to Jetii being an ass instead of taking it quietly! :D
That said, Jetii's pose in panel 2 is awesome!
I'm in agreement. Love that Rory finally got snarky back and I love Jetii in panel 2. Be nice to know exactly what he's looking at and what's going on in his head. hehe
Poor Rory looks like he lost some weight!
Kind of an awkward question (which I am really good at asking, apparently) but does their blue skin feel different than human skin? Obviously they are hairless but surely the genetic makeup of their skin is also vastly different than that of a human.
Basically, does it feel strange to Rory whenever Jetii or any of them touch him?
@nagafide: Rory has been mostly touched over his clothes, so I don't think he's yet made much observation on Veo skin.
Veo skin mostly feels a bit smoother than human skin, due to the lack of hair (kind of like freshly shaved legs?). They also tend to be a bit cooler to the touch except the undersides of the arms and the inside of the thighs.
Their fronds feel kind of like silk ribbon.
There is a noticeable difference in Veo fingers and toes. Their digits have thicker leathery skin, and their fingertips are fairly hard. It would be kind of like if you've ever wrapped masking tape around your fingers. It makes Veo fingers and toes very resistant to temperature extremes, which would be why you rarely see them wearing shoes or gloves with fingers. They also don't have a lot of sensation in them beyond pressure, though their palms are as sensitive as a human's.
Very cool! thank you. :)
@maplebee: Kind of an awkward/weird question but are they going to be a couple? (I secretly really want it to happen don't judge me) <3
@Coelaves: it's not an awkward or weird question :)
The intention is for Jetii and Rory to end up together eventually, yes. (It's a way down the road yet).
(sharp intake of breath) REALLY??!!
I am over the moon to hear that piece of information. I could never tell if it was just my imagination or not because Rory comes off a bit 'straight' (at least how I picture Rory acting in my mind when I read through the chapters). Which leads me to ask, is Rory meant to be bi or straight or gay? Or do you prefer not to be so concrete with such things? Am I asking too much? LOL
