How will Credomar end?
« on: October 31, 2009, 04:15:28 AM »
With a bang from Pi?
Or a whimper heard round the habitat from Ebby (with the help of Credomania, the broadcasting service that brings you all the dirt that we can see)?
Or...

Oh! Pi did a ka-thoom and a whimper, "I swear, that was an accident."

And ennesby is right there with congratulations.

I for one am not at all convinced this is actually the end.  Although it certainly adds a new dimension to the question "How could it get worse?"

Oh, how true Pi's words were....
"You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain."

true, true. But it is certainly  going to complicate things. Now can  Kevyn reconstruct our favorite robot despot? Should he?

And he wasn't even aiming at Lota!

I know. Which makes the (retrospective) irony of his statement all the better.

Maybe convincing Kevyn to do it will be the next part of the arc?

Heck, just watching him agonize over it... and consider what happens to Credomar without Lota... I can rebuild him, but should I? Oh, that could be fun! Add in ghosts of Lota (after all, an AI might very well not be exactly where the physical body is, right?) and we are set for some serious agony.

I'm just waiting for the angry mobs when they find out LOTA is dead...and who is responsible.

Clearly, LOTA has uploaded himself to the cloud. ;D

To be completely honest, keeping his brain in his body would have been a really stupid thing for Lota to do.  It's far too vulnerable.  One of the advantages of being an AI is making backups a la Petey, and then hiding them in the safest place imaginable.  Why I didn't see this coming, I'll never know.  I would imagine that Lota is in no sense dead.  It's only one small piece of hardware that would need to be replaced.

Lota probably IS Credomar now, and that's why he wants to get rid of all the people. :)
All Saiyuki fans should check out Dazzle! Emotionally wrenching action-adventure and quirky humor! (At least read chapter 6 and tell me if you're not hooked.) Volume 10 out now!

Maybe.  I'd bet almost anything that this relates to the reason Credomar was built in the first place.  The whole "Not really a habitat" thing has been given too much screen-time to be wasted now.
