Enter: Lucas Marne
Lucas woke up. His time on Titan so far had been a bore, the downer of his current trip across the solar system. Lucas had a theory. The many microcorps on the planet were too closely connected to the government, something which caused a bad environment for competition. This meant certain death to the party-scene. All the clubs and pubs on the planet were unexciting, and wouldn't have lasted for a season in any other place in the system, perhaps except for Ganymede.

But one thing they knew how to do here, and that was to drink. Lucas figured it had something to do with their suppressive socialist government, but when the cold and unfriendly citizens here started drinking, they didn't stop until they were friends with everyone. Lucas glanced over to his bed, his nightly companion had already left. She had gotten up a few hours earlier to go to work, how very Titanian.

“Could I have a moment of your time, mr. Marne”, Lucas could hear the voice of his muse inside his head.

“Yes, certainly! What is it?”, Lucas responded while dressing.

“There is a message for you. Do you want me to send it through?”

“Sure, go ahead.”

It was a prismatic sun that hung still in the sky. On the horizon, dark and amorphous, tall anvil clouds loomed, bloated and menacing and welcome by all.

Rain was on the way.

Griselda drove the turkeys. The scent of tomato leaves clung on her hands and feet.

The fowl strode happily, anxiously toward the watercourse, clinging under the shade of the avocado tree. Above the chorus of turkey cries, she made out the soft rumbling of distant thunder, and felt the breeze change almost imperceptibly, causing the thick leaves of the avocado to rustle and elicited a soft clink of obsidian beads hanging around her neck.

Griselda smiled.

clink!clink!clink!clink!clink!

The pinging wakes her up. She refers to her muse as The Voice (still takes some getting used to). Titan. She's still on Titan.

"Yes?"
"i present you with a message"

penguin.5 was quite impressed with its new toy. "Pylae" was proving to be an amusing macrovirus. With almost no monitoring or input, the program was allowing penguin.5 to poke around some of the more open networks in Locus. After all, an anarchist society should be perfectly fine with my poking around, reasoned penguin.5.

"Pylae" would need to be filed away for further examination. It was a relatively simple framework, but seemed to be fairly adaptive in dealing with the simpler networks. With proper modification, "Pylae" could become a powerful tool and might serve as a further method for strengthening Exotech security.

penguin.5 began tweaking "Pylae" to see if a backdoor could easily be left behind and covered up. While working, a message arrived and penguin.5 shifted a portion of its attention to run a security scan on the message before opening it.

I enter my room, flip on the old-fashioned entertainment system which automatically on pauses "13 Assassins," one of my favorite Samauri action flicks. I open the fridge and grab some retro-pizza, replicated after an old earth franchise called "IMO's". Its a little thin, but I like the synthetic cheese.

I flop down on the couch and settle in...DAMNIT! I've got blood in my fur. Why do I keep taking these low rent body guard assignments. If I'm going to get messy, I should probably consider more rewarding work.

Guess its time to hop in the shower...

You have an incoming message.

Okay, looks like I have reading material for the shower.
