Memento Mori, chapter 30

( Fake cut to chapter 30 ) Dreamwidth Mirror In which Blink manages the incredible, and actually gets into the Institute. OMG. And finds a little surprise inside.

Just fyi, "Hoo-dees" is the colloquial name for hooting deer. I've only just started to think about their names and things; I need to do a bit of worldbuilding before I edit the thing up. I don't really want to have to use the word "deer", for instance, it was a stop-gap so I didn't get too stuck. XD

You could always be sneaky and use the scientific name for deer or the name in another language. ;)

...admittedly, that is my usual trick. ¬_¬ (But shh!)

Although I had been thinking, technically we're translating everything ANYWAY (as in, why would they call a computer "a computer", for instance? Or a chair "a chair"?), so if they have a creature that fills the same ecological niche as a deer, and looks vaguely like a deer, why not just call it a deer?

I don't think I'd get away with that, though. XD
