Yep, Shelly has gone bye-bye. Hope she gets back soon. Possibly she’ll see Jin while she’s away…
Haha. Yeah, see I’m torn between the idea that the windsurfer is going to be someone of importance or something and the idea that they are so comfortable with one another that these confessions come out easily. Like a casual thing.
Naa. It’s like having a conversation with your buddies on your porch and noticing one of the neighbor’s kids playing dangerously close to the street.
Wouldn’t surprise me if this leads to something 😀
Oh-oh… You have too potential super-heroes near an event that might call for saving someone – one of them gets bigger than the Hulk and can presumably fly, and the other one is a teleporter with a bigger rack than Powergirl. Looking forward to the potential storyline that I hope happens. 🙂
I don’t know. I doubt Shelly is going to transform, but will Monica poit the surfer if needed? Can she poit someone from that distance? If she can, will she since it would be a very public thing? They may be about to learn they can’t save everyone, even though they might have the power.
Of course, we may also be about to learn Shelly can poit now. Or maybe turn invisible in sphinx form.
Well she did pull Amanda fromt he lake to her office once. Also she accedently pulled Kevin for his bed to hers. She has a little bit of control over it. I’m betting she has to have a connection to the target as well, as both people were close to her.
She had until recently poiting from Minnesota to some small island or piece of land (until destroyed by Bud and Stinky) in one of the warmer parts of one of our oceans so I don’t think distance is a problem.
But the initial distance to the person or thing being poited might be an issue. OTOH, didn’t she poit six feet of Minnesota snow to cover a large cruise ship?
Let’s just say we don’t know the limitations. Only Paul does–and maybe he only learn them as needed for the story line.
She can only do it when it is funny…. Super-natural, super piots are only possible when she is not thinking about them as being impossible.
Luke: I don’t believe it. Yoda: That is why you fail.
Uh, someone didn’t soak up the “with great power comes great responsibility” lesson?Stan Lee. 😉
With a great rack comes great…
Er…, what was I saying again? Something distracted me. Two somethings.
It could be worse. She could be in a swimsuit.
Speaking of wardrobe (mal)functions, if M needs to hide her Identity, she could use the Creepy Little Girls nickname for her
But then again, she has her own thing going, protective (ahem) headgear and all
She has part of the gig down already
Remember this is a mini regatta not full sized sail boats. Who ever is on the surf board is being mean and messing with the race. They can’t get hurt but can break the boats and ruin the race. That points to the girls either stopping the interference or giving the surfer a good talking to afterwards. Of course depending on who is on the board. Jin? Phix? Owen? It could be our favorite good fo beer, he had one too many.
Does mini mean not full sized boats or just fewer boats?
It could be Alan, with maybe Jin, out there. Remember his jump onto the ice on the snowmobile.
Smaller boats, probably 2-3 crew each. Usually they have a given class as standard, so that there is an even playing field. And not just a flat lake.
As I said the other day – all Shelly needs is a cape, a breeze, and a rooftop at night….and maybe, an opportunity.
Cue the burden of godlike powers in 5… 4… 3…
Put a 2-day hold on that countdown — the weekend, remember?
Uh oh…Bud has discovered the fun of wind surfing? Given her propensity ta accidentally destroy stuff when things go wrong (in-lines..ahrm..) this is cause for concern. It gets even worse if Bud and May together decided it would be a good idea to try those strange sail&plank contraptions…. Mad inventor and clumsy golem….
Bud’s a little busy right now, being felt up by May.
The return of Owen?
The return of Tepoz?
I’m glad I’m not the only who thinks that when there is a mysterious person. Bring Owen back!
I wonder if Shelly has nightmares about that day 🙁
Think i would.
No kidding. It’s hard to imagine the terror of being in that situation. No one there to help. Clutching that relic trying to make it take you home. Putting it down and picking it up in the hopes of getting back. Day in day out. Year in year out. Who knows what horrors were there. Her only hope would be that Monica and the gang were mounting a rescue, not knowing they were never even aware she was gone.
Of course she had CG to help in some ways. Being a conglomerate of demons she would know something about such strange things. And who knows how soon Phix showed up. Not too soon I would guess though since she considered it her punishment for having wronged Monica.
There’s a whole potential series of books about her time in the TTF alone.
It takes a lot of maturity to accept the fact that for the Calendar Machine plan to work, she HAD to be a clueless target. And more so to share that with Shelly and ease her burden as well. Her “Special place in Hell” is now there on the beach with her friend, doing what ever they want to do.
Warms the cockles of my heart, it does…
Oh! And Gratz to PW for breaking into the top 50! Ranked 49 at the moment!
Thanks for reminding me to vote! 🙂 I always forget here because the vote button is so minimal.
She wasn’t clueless, that’s why she was pack’en! And Phix told her “don’t duck”.
Shelly!! Heart-to-heart moment happening here – FOCUS!!
hey, you spend 80k years without it, the smallest stuff becomes interesting…:)
I have been in that position where you see “that guy about to have an accident”, and then see it happen. It’s not a supernatural feeling, but there is something about that cognitive leap… You feel good for seeing what will happen, yet helpless to stop it from happening. And you cannot help but focus on it. It draws you in, probably tapping into our predatory instincts.
JeffEpp- Where I come from we call that the train wreck effect, you just can’t not look.
It’s called daddy/mommy vision. You get it when you have kids. I remember pointing out a motorcycle rider once saying “watch that guy” just before he did a slow speed rear end into a truck.
On the wind surfer:
It all depends on your interpretation of the term “supposed to”:
If it’s what’s allowed then it’s likely the surfer is going to get into trouble soon. If she means that it should be physically impossible then we’re looking at another supernatural being at the lake. Either way Shelly notices because she’s a guardian.
On Monica’s admission to Shelly:
At least she’s been able to raise the subject calmly and let Shelly know that it makes her, Monica, a more fearful and suspicious member of the team.
Maybe its stinky!!
He could be under the windsurfer guiding it 😀
That’s a C-Scow, not a windsurfer.
I can totally relate to how easy it is to get distract…ooo shiny! 🙂
In all honesty though, shouldn’t Shelly be hyper aware of wind-things? She’s supposed to be connected tot hat right?
oh yea i totally know what you… oh whats that?!
oh sorry wait what was i saying
I like that their chance to talk has happened. It’s in comfy surroundings without all the tension and rushed anxiety that came from that clothes blowing off moment.
Shelly has had a chance to sort herself out.
Monica has had a chance to vent. Even if she doesn’t have all the answers on what happened to Shelly. Monica now has the clarity of mind to realize she doesn’t need all of the answers.
Yep, its Retreat, Regroup, and Re-friend time.
A much needed activity considering what May may be up to.
“Weaving in and out like that….”
Yeah, that’d get my spidey-sense tingly too. Just slightly off enough to notice the vibes.
You all will love this in today’s news:
Latin American Herald Tribune. A group of Mexican archaeologists have discovered a 1.5 ton stone relief from the Olmec culture created more than 2,800 years ago, the National Institute of Archaeology and History, or INAH, said…
…The relief was found broken in 11 pieces, which the experts spent May and June restoring, so that only now is it possible “to admire the triad of felines in their entirety,” INAH said.
As long as there’s no calendar machine involved. . . .
I got a feeling that the windsurfer is Shelly’s boyfriend… who’s with me ?
No way! Officer tight-buns is too uptight to deliberately act unsafely and break the law without VERY good reason.
Better that the windsurfer is weaving and not ramming
“…in other news, reports persist that a ‘huge winged creature’ was somehow involved in rescuing several people from the chaos created when two racing yachts collided while attempting to avoid hitting a lone windsurfer…”
I think 80K+ years in hopeless exile would have been punishment enough for Shelly even if she had murdered Monica. She didn’t and she helped save the world. I don’t see where she thinks her “punishment” wasn’t harsh enough? Assuming it had been a punishment.
It’s Shelly who has the right to have outbursts. She suffered a fate for which she was blamelss and it was at the hands of Monica & co.
Well, technically she didn’t “save” the world, she just prevented time loop #58.
There are reasons the character is defined as being wise beyond her years.
On an unrelated note: I just found this image on the net.
No wonder it’s sad; it only has the lion and snake parts. Where’s Bud?
Dude, Lions don’t naturally have horns.
Nor, in fact, cloven hooves.
And they don’t usually have Lemur spleens, but that’s tricky to notice.
Foreshadowing? We’ll know in a minute.
