Hmm. I received a comment about how it's not fair that only one cuckoo bee can ruin the lives of all of the bees in an infiltrated colony (in regards to my last news entry). Well, if the story had ended with the killing of the queen, the species of regular bees would be extinct by now, but obviously that's not the case. To finish the story, after killing the queen bee and enslaving the other bees, the female cuckoo lays her eggs besides the deceased queen bee's. It's important to note that all female cuckoos are queen bees with the potential to have offspring. HOWEVER, the cuckoo's eggs naturally hatch much later than the normal queen bee's eggs. Thus, by the time the newborn queen cuckoos hatch, the other normal queen bees are already fully grown and kicks out the young cuckoos; therefore restoring order to the colony with the return of the rightful heir (lol). And if you're wondering why they're called cuckoo bees -- it's because these critters are named after the cuckoo bird which also lays eggs in a host's nest rather than creating their own.
Man, this talk of bees has again taken over most of my news entry space. Anyway, I think I should comment a little about the recent pages. So far we saw an unknown man talking to Yasu about neurosynchronization and about having to bind with a partner; thus, we can assume that this process requires at least two people. However, Yasu gets all upset because she doesn't want to be forced into it since binding with someone is, apparently, a permanent move.
By the way, I think I've been leading everyone in the wrong direction: this Yasu is NOT God. It was my mistake to keep referring to this older Yasu as God when technically she's not...completely...a god. I don't know if I should mention this since it'll probably either be a spoiler or confuse people (depending on how you look at it) -- but the younger Yasu we saw earlier IS God. On a different note, older Yasu doesn't look as attractive anymore. I suppose it was a one-shot deal. Or perhaps it's just because I made her neck too long on the second panel *rolls eyes*
One final note: I now see every comment made on generation four...whether it's on page one, ten, or the hundredth. Just to show you what I mean, click here for the admin login page
. That is, of course, the simplified version without information like IP addresses or the ability to see older comments (the full version shows up after inputting a password). I'm planning on making a cleaner version later which I'll place on the sidebar so that the public can freely browse new comments without having to go through the archives or skimming multiple pages ^_^
