I apologize for the lateness of this page. I was having some technical difficulties with my computer. Despite how busy life can be I have actually been able to make some decent progress as far as a buffer of pages. I am still working towards a goal of weekly updates. I am really excited about the upcoming pages. I promise the story picks up the pace as soon as they leave the library, and I have tried to make sure that it doesn’t slow down from now on.
Thanks for the comments. Please keep them coming.

Caught up, Rated, Subscribed and Awaiting the next page!

At least Syn crashed into a place where being different doesn't stand out.

Oh, and the Dead Roach sounds tres chic!

Thanks for subbing! And thanks for commenting.

Being different is going to be a big focus for the group moving forward. Each person in the little group has something that makes them pretty different even in a world where different is normal.

"...no longer trust..." "...sort of individual..." Syn is getting more and more interesting.

I've read the whole story, and this might be a dumb question...but what do Syn's two companions exactly see her as at this juncture in the story? Some sort of demon? Magician? Are the inhabitants of this world capable of comprehending the technology that is Syn? Or am I jumping the gun asking these questions?

Well they still really don't know. Mhila knows that she isn't really magic or she would be able to tell. Back on page 7 she compared Syn to a construct, like a golem. Mostly they kinda take it in stride that she is very different. They will learn much more about her later on.

Great to hear CyberSkull. Thanks for all the comments.

Have you considered giving Syn personality quirks based on the characteristics of modern algorithms that do similar things to whatever she's doing? (e.g., jumping to conclusions about how to classify something because her pattern classifier was overfitted, or patiently cycling through a huge number of wildly inaccurate guesses as she trains a genetic algorithm, or deliberately refusing to make what would seem to be obvious assumptions until she sees direct evidence of something.)

Actually pretty much yes Kermit. She can no longer trust her own instincts, and even if she could they would not do her as much good in the world she finds herself in. The story will focus a great deal on Syn recreating herself. Thanks for commenting.
