And we zing back to Jane Liberty and Angelica!

Remember, you can still click here to get your 5th anniversary thank-you gift! As I mentioned, you have a choice of two versions of the short story collection, depending on if you want an all-new NSFW episode or not.

Deliberate and Afraid of Nothing

Jane Liberty sat up suddenly, eyes gone wide.

Angelica grabbed her hand. "Jane? What's wrong? Jane?"

Jane looked at Angelica, her face pale. "Angelica, help me. I need to remember something: who was it whose power I took in the War? She was… dammit… she was a speedster?"

"Blitzkrieg?" Angelica said, racking her brain. Help me, Fangirl Powers! You're my only hope! she thought irrelevantly.

"No, I remember that one, I turned that power on already," Jane said, banging on the table with her free hand. "No, no, it was… dammit… she actually did time stuff…"

That rang a bell. "Blinken?" Angelica said. Blinken had been a tiny footnote in an obscure Jane Liberty biography, but it was one of the books Angelica had read over and over.

"That's her!" Jane said, squeezing Angelica's hand gratefully. "I have to go now. Renata will tell you why." She leaned forward and said intensely, "But you wait for me right here, all right? I'll be back. I promise that I'll be back."

Angelica, startled, nodded. "Sure. Absolutely. I'll be right here."

Jane nodded and peeled off the ill-fitting sweatsuit she had on, revealing the sleek black bodysuit underneath. "Borrowed from the Ultimate's stores," she said in response to Angelica's baffled look. "The sweatsuit wouldn't stand up to the friction, and these shrink or stretch to fit." Then, with a ghost of her trademark jaunty salute, Jane Liberty took off.

Angelica stared after her, watching her accelerate and blink along a high arc away into the sky. What the hell was that about?
