What would you ask an Immortal?

If you had the chance to ask an Immortal questions, what would your questions be? Limit of three questions, so that everyone gets a chance! Image

Kudos Bob. This is a terrific idea!

I think I would have a dozen questions or more (probably more) for Lucian. Things Lynsay might never cover in her books.

One thing I would like to ask him (okay, it’s more than one thing) is: after the fall of Atlantis, how long did it take to go from being a fangless immortal to one with fangs as well as all those extra powers of a predator and what was the process like? Do you have any theories on how it is that all of you with second-generation nanos managed to adapt in exactly the same way? Do you think the nanos communicate with each other somehow? I know, Lucian is a warrior, a superhero and a defender of the weak but perhaps not so much a scientist. Still, he’s been around since the beginning and he’s the first guy I’d ask.

Tom for part of your question: If I remember correctly Marguerite said that she always knows when her children need her also she "felt" JC when he died. Also she stated that it is passed form "sire" to spouse. Which is how she felt him. (ABTR)

Yeah. That would make an interesting book but I suspect it's not the sort of story Lynsay would be interested in writing. It would be more hard-core science fiction.

I think part of this is also because I think Marguerite may be a little bit psychic and that the nanos are enhancing it. That could be why she is so good at matchmaking!

But, I also think that there is always a natural connection between parent and child, husband and wife, and siblings (particularly twins) that is also most likely enhanced by the nanos.

Remember Sue, Lucian also stated that there are some family members he can not read. Including siblings. So it is not always a given. Unless they are newly mated. :D

I haven't forgotten that, sin. It must be some sort of anomaly within the nanos, like the problem with Victor & Vincent -- something genetic???

Bob.

Bob, the "pork chop" reference in my signature, is a direct quote from The Renegade Hunter. Thomas says it during the encounter between Lucian and Jo when she is standing up to him in defense of Nicholas. She kept referring to the punishment as "SHAKE and bake" as opposed to "STAKE and bake." Shake and Bake is a commercial product used in cooking to coat either chicken or pork chops before baking. That is what I assumed the reference comes from.
