And here we go. After all, this thing isn't the Apple of Peace and Harmony...

The question now is:

How will our heroes get out of this unfortunate predicament?

And what happens if they... don't?

;-)

Yeah... Going after this thing was not Lena's brightest idea ever. :P

Microraptor
Very true! :-D

But...
What was Lena's idea anyway? What does she want the apple for? ;-)

In retrospect, I don't know why I didn't see this coming.

It's affecting all of them, so wearing gloves or carrying it in a bag wouldn't have helped either.

I wonder if they made some kind of drone to carry it, what would happen. Does it affect anyone who is thinking about it, or just those in a limited range?

Ah, wonderful! You are raising some very excellent questions here!

How to safely transport that thing? Who exactly gets affected?

And in theory, parts of the answers may already be deducible, i think... ;-)

So remind me again why they wanted to find this thing?

I mean, archeological coup aside.

Lena tricked Kanny into wanting to find it...

As for why Lena wanted to find it in the first place? Well...

[Remember when back here, I said this:
"Once again, that sorta kinda has the potential to re-contextualize something in the upcoming Cryptida chapter... Something that won't come up until the very end though, so I have still amble time to ponder that..."
It actually has to do with precisely that issue...]

Man, that link threw me down the rabbit hole... and yeah, those are pretty damn good reasons to acquire such a fickle but powerful artifact.
Microraptor edit delete reply
Microraptor
Whose reasons though? Lena's? Or (going one link up the chain) Bettina's? (That's where the re-contextualization comes in...)

Hm! Seems like it's doing exactly what it did in myth!
Microraptor edit delete reply
Microraptor
They should have paid more attention to the myth then... ;-D
