Nothing like Asian Dystopias :D 10/04/2021

by Joe

Just watched the first episode of Squid Game and I’m in for the season :D Really reminds me of Battle Royale, a Japanese movie I’ve loved for 20 (!) years. I love the Korean/Japanese vibe and culture in these dystopian “game shows” which, in my opinion, just feel more compelling and “real” than stuff like The Hunger Games. Looking forward to the rest of the season!

Enjoy Scene 59 – “The Weapon”!

Sigh, the colonist numbers keep dropping ever more. If there are survivors here, I hope they now realize just how much better they were when they were in the colony itself and how dangerous it truly is out there… Must say though, Rosa reacted quickly to his arrival without needing to ask him what happened (did she read his surface thoughts or did she just guess?)


Notes from rereading;

– [ ] It completely skipped my mind that Rusty was an ex-soldier. I guess with the recent scenes he did prove that he still has the will to sacrifice himself for the sake of others even if he denies it himself.
– [ ] 7-10 hits a lot harder when the two injured talk about having a lot to recover… if only they knew neither would be able to ever recover…
– [ ] Another detail I forgot or missed: Geoffrey not only is responsible for the Mutants, but maybe even the Zombie infection’s origins with patient zero being the first potential body of Samuel.
– [ ] A vampire elder who wants the brain to work once again… Katherine?! Nope, was Dominik being a bastard. He’s had his claws in a lot of things, seeing as he manipulated Geoffrey and thus has his hands in mutants, zombies and psychics. And has the gall to claim that the world is in harmony when he brought about 3 of the warring races. Maybe even more.
– [ ] Rosa left the Elder to suffer, he claims she will return, but later on she’s surprises he survived… what else did she expect when he left him alive.
– [ ] 8-3 – Jake – “I don’t let anger consume me.” ——— FACEPALM Such foreshadowing…
– [ ] 9-8: in this chapter I’m not sure if I’m seeing correctly but… when Joe’s floating naked… is his dick erect? Surprised no one commented on that in that scene…
– [ ] Why was Scott in prison again anyways, wasn’t he on house arrest and had a meal with Annika last time. Timeskip: he’s behind bars again as he awaits trial.
– [ ] Will we ever know the story of the skeleton on the rooftop in front of thr base? Its quite literally the ONLY skeleton seen in the entire story, the other corpses have always been rotten chunks, maimed bodies or pools of blood.
– [ ] Of the three puppies: green became Scrufflebeck, Red is dead… what became of Blue? We’ve not seen it with George in recent scenes… has he sold/given it to someone else?
– [ ] Wait… Arbiter is effectively a machine following Victor and Doc’s actions, being able to send and receive into the machine network. (Unless Victor’s ploy only made it seem like that and it doesnt really connect to their network at all). With the plants fully integrating into Arbiter, should this theoretical link be reactivated… what would happen?


Reached the point of the story when quotation errors no longer appear. Will be posting the final list on Patreon later.

Haven’t been back in a while and damn. I still remember when Cross felt like a cockroach, and yet Cash is giving him a run for his money.

@NeoPhantom you seem like someone who’s used MarkDown. Maybe a little strange though to use a checkbox list rather than a basic dash/bullet list when there’s no intent to fill any checkboxes…

Znayx on October 9, 2021 at 1:37 am

@Znayx Nothing that complicated. I used Notes on my phone to keep the notes and used bullet points from it to keep track of what I was writing. When I copy said bullet points anywhere, they turn out like this.

I have two questions (1) When will chapter 12, scene 60 come out? (2) Will we see Bernie’s father and his suit, Obliteration, again?

Obliteration on October 11, 2021 at 1:36 pm

@Obliteration – 1) In a few minutes! 2) Only time will tell! ;D
