Quantum Vibe

A thousand years in the future, humanity has colonized worlds in nearly 100 galaxies, thanks to Quantum Vibremonic technologies developed five centuries earlier. Other new technologies have created various off-shoots of humanity and extended life expectancies five-fold. The story begins with how a mad scientist and his plucky assistant, along with their robot friend, brought humanity to the stars, and continues with the adventures of some unique people in fantastic places.

SubscribeStar Update: All Systems Go! [ Feb 11, 2019 ]

The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is now open for business.

Those seeking an alternative to Patreon for supporting Scott and Quantum Vibe, SubscribeStar is another option. Paypal is not available with SubsribeStar, but credit cards are accepted. Plans for accepting crypto-payments are in the works. Stay tuned.




SubscribeStar update: Not yet [ Jan 31, 2019 ]

The QUANTUM VIBE page on SubscribeStar is open, although the site seems to be going through some growing pains.

For that reason I'm advising Patrons looking to switch over, to wait a little while longer. I subscribed to a couple of channels there and there are some billing issues. If they get cleared up within a week, I'll announce the ALL CLEAR and invite everyone unhappy with Patreon to come over.



 

The Transcript For This Page

Panel 1
In Seamus' hotel room – looks a lot like Nicole's but the wall decorations are a bit different. Seamus is packing his last suitcase. Nicole stands with her suitcase near the door.
Nicole: Ready soon?
Seamus: This is the last suitcase.
Panel 2
Seamus stands with his three suitcases near Nicole with her one. He is trying to be jovial, but she has a flat expression.
Seamus: Well, that was some adventure, wasn't it?
Seamus: And now, on to Venus! Excitement awaits!
Panel 3
Nicole simply turns and walks out of the room. Her suitcase follows her. Seamus stands there, a bit flummoxed.
No dialog.
Panel 4
Walking as fast as he can with his cane, Seamus catches up with Nicole in the hallway. She still has a flat expression. Their suitcases follow.
Seamus: I sense a lack of enthusiasm.
Seamus: Have I said or done anything to offend you?
Panel 5
The two continue down the corridor.
Nicole: This isn't what I signed up for.
Seamus: Beg pardon?
Panel 6
Nicole stops and turns to face Seamus. She speaks through gritted teeth, anger and resentment beginning to manifest.
Nicole: In the last three days I was nearly burned up in the Sun, had to endure a hellish return trip, and was nearly murdered – first by vacuuming and then by zing-fire.
Seamus: Er, well, yes ...

Panel 7
Nicole and Seamus
Nicole: Goddammit, I never wanted to be a stunt-woman, or a shucking adventurer. I want to do science, not feats of daring, or zing-fighting, or this idiotic intrigue you're so into!
Seamus: Point taken. How can I make this right for you?

Panel 8
Nicole gets in Seamus' face as best she can. He looks cornered.
Nicole: I want to know exactly what I've nearly gotten killed for.
Nicole: No more secrecy, Seamus! Tell me what your project is really about or I'm going home!
