What was that bubbles i can't hear you over how long this has dragged on. (Ugh, fucking pink pony going "forever", but you get the point).
Also, i t-t-truly w-w-w-wonder if a-a-a-all t-t-t-that stuttering was r-r-r-r-really ne-ne-ne-ne-necessary. Sp-p-pecially when it-t-t-t's allegedly d-d-d-d-d-d-og t-t-t-talk. M-m-m-mind y-y-you, i'm n-n-not re-re-really c-c-complaining b-b-b-ut at one p-p-p-point it be-be-be-became t-t-t-tiresome t-t-to re-re-read.
It would be hilarious if at the end of it the light cleared out to reveal that nothing happened.
Anyway, everything will probably look as if nothing happened afterwards. But then they gradually find out they are in some sort of catastrophic alternate reality. Cliche, but that's all I've got for now.
We waited almost a month, and we still have no idea what's going to happen. I guess based on the nature of the device, it'll involve time travel, but figuring out how and why we'll just have to wait. Hopefully not TOO long this time.
This bomb reminds me of an old comic in Dragon Magazine where a wizard fireballs the enemy... then everyone sits around playing tiddly winks. A mook runs up and asks "wasn't there a battle going on here?" and the wizard says "Yeah, we're just waiting for the GM to figure out how much damage that fireball did."
It's taking that long.
On the bright side, if it's reached Dr. X, it's got to be "over" (as in, we get to see the aftermath) in the next 1-2 pages, right?
