Finally caught up, although the hard part is passed, I think Chase should keep watching his back. We never know if he'd dispose Chase after all these.

huh, Guess the guy with the artifact in his skull's also a mute... or just doesn't like talking in front of possible dead ends enough to take up some rudimentary sign language

Heyyyy it makes me happy that someone caught that :D Didn't want to draw attention to it.

I did do my research, ASL was actually invented in the 1800s, a full century before this story takes place. Very cool to read up on :)

My kids had to take ASL as part of their introduction to linguistics class in the seventh grade. It was six weeks of Latin and Ancient Greek, followed by six of Spanish, six of French, six of German, six of ASL and then they finished up with six weeks of linguistics. Then in, the eighth grade, they had to chose a foreign language to study. My daughter studied French and took a minor in it in college. My son did two years of Spanish and then switched to three years of Mandarin.

We shall have to see if there is a backstory for Imemi. Is he an Armenian or Azerbaijaini, I wonder? Was he exposed to the Mythos there or perhaps learned about it from his elder relatives. So many possibilities.

And finally, Happy Holidays to you and yours, which everone you celebrate!

Good gosh, that is awesome :O
I "learned" English on my own and studied German for eight years only to remember like three words.
Lame :/

Because of my father's military service, I had six months of Dutch, followed by 2 1/2 years of German. Then when I was in the Peace Corps I learned Malay. I then joined the Foreign Service and had a year of full-time French language study, a year of Mandarin (both spoken and written), some advanced studies in Malay, a year of advanced Mandarin (in Taiwan), and finished up with a year of Russian, which I promptly forgot.

My wife who is Malaysian Chinese puts me to shame. She grew up speaking four dialects of Chinese. The way she learned Mandarin was by silently listening to her older sisters talking in front of her about their boyfriends, thinking that she couldn't understand them. <g> She also speaks Malay and French.

I forgot about studying Swahili while we were assigned to Nairobi. It comes in very useful when watching old Tarzan movies. <g>

Damn son! That is super cool D:
They say each language makes you another person but yeah, definitely helps in a lot of areas even if just for the hack of it!
My grandpa could speak quite a few languages though and something as "random" as Italian helped him the most, haha.

Woooah guys, this is all really impressive :)

I'm glad that the fact that it was ASL came through, I didn't want to call any attention to it and see if people picked it up - success :D

Also, Bob, thank you for the well wishes - I'm sorry I didn't reply ON Christmas, but I hope yours was wonderful - mine certainly was. I have friends and family visiting and we've been busy catching up :)

Thanks again, have a great one!

Weird eye, possibly mute, highly analytical expression. He is hella suspicious. It was like Chase had a job interview and that guy was from HR taking notes...
Then they give Chase a scribbled "card" and cut him off when they were the ones barging in there. Can you get less professional? :/

I hope Chase is not buying most of this.
Ah well. Always easier from the reader perspective just like shouting on your screen :D

We'll have to see how Chase decides to take it!
