I strongly suspect they, along with everybody else who doesn't have an Adaptability score in the high thousands like Utena Tenjou, wouldn't believe the truth about Corwin. As such, they would consider him an unfortunately delusional genetic aberrant, not simply a genetic aberrant like the rest of us. (And he's illegitimate - for shame!)

Quote from CoM kegger:
"Kid says he's a demigod. Of course, that's par for the course from Gryphon's son."
"In other words, Gryphon got a real human pregnant, so his son is only half Detian. Hell, if the kid says he's a demigod, he's nowhere near as arrogent as his old man."

BTW, I figure that the CoM would take ironic interest in the name "Gryphon"--a mythological amalgam creature.

True! We know about why starship captains need them.

But what need does a god have for a starship?

With lines like this around, it's so hard to keep liquids going down my throat in the morning. I should have learned by now not to drink around the Eyrie message boards, or keep a spare keyboard handy.

Like you have a right to complain, with a sig like that... <grin>

Reminds me of an old Ranma fic, btw... I have a faint memory of a character who suffered from a variant on the nekoken called the "kawaii-ken"...

That's "Nuke 'em 'till they glow". It's actually a Sailor Moon fanfic.

Ah. Thanks for the reference. Yeah, that makes sense, given what I can remember of "Nuke'em".

Hmm, good point. I keep forgetting that most of the galaxy doesn't even know Ragnarock even happened. It's just I thought of the CoM's reaction to the news that a goddess slept with a Detian and had a child from it. Dead fanatics left, right and center.

Speaking of the Twilight, how'd you keep that one hidden? You had a few thousand freespacers, most of the bloody Autobot army, and the crews of three starships, one of which had a crew of over 100,000.

All of whom know perfectly well that nobody would ever believe them.

It's not necessary to cover something up which isn't credible to the general public in the first place. Ask the Air Force. :)

   >All of whom know perfectly well that nobody would ever believe them.

There's always gonna be SOME lunatic willing to believe anything. (Hell, there's Scientologists and the Flat Earth Society.)

I'm willing to bet there's some set of maniacs who claim there's no such thing as Omega-2 and that the entire WDF Cadre is really Buma or a set of clones or something.

Hm... and on the flip side, a cult that worships them. That may be a bit uncomfortable to some of them. (Of course, they're also useful when you need someone to do something for you for absolutely no good reason that you can think of and when going through 'channels' is not a possibility. But frankly, I can't see the WDF Core being that cold-blooded except in a major, major emergency.)

There are those that thought the SR-71 wasn't credible once....

Oh, dear. The Church of the Unwilling Diety is born anew! How often must I suffer?

IRL, Wedge Rat Kelli Clark decided to play a particularly cruel joke on me.

She declared me God.

I denied it, vehemently.

Within two weeks, I had five or six worshippers of the Church of ReRob, the Unwilling Diety.

Within three weeks, a schism had formed so that each worshipper had their own faith, each of which I was busy denying. At one point, somebody wrote up a generic excuse form (for getting out of any sort of trouble) that required "ReRob, the Unwilling Diety" to sign it. I signed no such forms.

IMHO, God can have His job! I don'wannit!

At least in this case you have the rest of the Wedge Rats as an unwilling pantheon to comiserate with.
