    If things in this story didn't take unexpected twists, I'd say that Ben just jinxed himself.
  2. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread II

    ... Well, that one is stupid as they come. I'm sure the court will have a fun day with her burying herself like that. And the press. The press will love how she only knew the girl as 'Six'.

    There's always someone with more balls than brains. Then he ends up with no balls and no brains.
  4. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread II

    We don't talk about 1635.
  5. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread II

    ... is that the Americans actually being sensible? What a surprise! Cue some other dimwit doing something to trigger the war nobody wanted.
  6. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread II

    Well, that escalated quickly. And Marie was way out of place for that, even as a quip. Outing herself to her father should have fallen solely to Victoria. Sure, Louis doesn't seem the type to get angry over that, and the whole Ben thing shows that he did not expect Ben's answers and realised he...

    Maria did send Kat an advanced copy of the article, it was mentioned during the chapter.
  8. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread II

    Ah, Kat and her usual touch. At least she gave a warning, usually all you see of those kinds of Kat is them pouncing to strike straight at your jugular.

    Memetic mothers-in-law, what can you do about those? :D
  10. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread II

    ... and somehow, it really fits in with the family. I laughed more than I should when I read this line.

    If the females are asymptomatic carriers? As long as it takes to have a male without the disease, else there's always be a risk involved unless a generation gets lucky and everyone gets the good genes.

    Well, you know what they say... Yes.

    ... you know, that would be a nice trigger for a Chinese Civil War, if the BND were willing to play dirty. Influence possible Chinese POW, see if there's someone in there with a good potential for leadership and straight enough to not bite them in the arse... and sneak them back to China to sow...

    "They all look the same!" Also dammit, not Jonny. Stupid Luck indeed.

    Come on people, no need to lose our cool. I'm sure we can all chill out and enjoy the show. :P
  17. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread II

    I was laughing myself off at this line. Something tells me he wasn't joking, too. I can imagine Tilo's mindset: something among the lines of 'Goddamnit!'

    I don't really think he will need to apologize. Kat did talk about secrets with him, and so far he's been keeping this one under wraps, despite everything.
  19. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread II

    And I reckon he wouldn't list Stalingrad as one of his proudest moments. Can't really blame the guy for trying not to air THAT kind of laundry.
  20. Stupid Luck and Happenstance, Thread II
