4. "RE: Exile mini: Direct Action"
In response to message #2

>interesting.

A friend of mine from a foreign land once prompted Truss to observe, "This person is going to have an interesting time adapting to America," which, after some time, he was forced to revise to, "America is going to have an interesting time adapting to this person." I suspect matters were similar between Laura and Philip Wilding Memorial High School. :)

>Should we recognize Rhian and Mairwen from anywhere else? The "I'm

>expect Rhian to do that...

Nope, made them up. It appears that Rhian is just known for getting a bit bitey when displeased.

It has long been a half-joking contention of mine that Boy and Girl Scouts shouldn't really be allowed to call themselves that unless they are actually prepared to go into the field and come back with useful information about enemy positions, distribution, probable strength etc. In the 24th-century UF universe, at least in the Crown Colonies, this is evidently the case - although it does come up a couple of times in this piece that the Llanfair Regiment is considered unusually adventuresome even by the standards of the era.

>Ah, love at first fright. :)

Well, to be perfectly fair, she does have the most amazing eyes.
