Introduction (or Why I snuck into the teleporter with a Chinese Mantis)

The female Chinese Mantis is, even by human standards, quite beautiful. She has long legs, wide hips, a tiny waist, an elongated neck and huge eyes. If I could just blend those physical attributes in with my own I could be really stunning...

Unfortunately it is very hard to isolate a gene for, say, slimness, so it is quite likely that I will get some other characteristics as well. I am usually a carer by nature, quite maternal and fairly passive. Maybe it would be a good thing to be a bit tougher, faster, colder. Should I take the chance to be someone else?

What will come out of the telepod? A flabby stick insect? Or a Femme Fatale?

  1. I cannot wait to find out, Chrissie! (and I really like the writing here: 'tougher, faster, colder' - very nice indeed!).
