You ever think of Kunzite with, like, you know those toddler leashes and every one is strapped to one of the Shitennou and he’s just in the middle holding on to them looking like a goddamn kindergarten teacher whose made the wrong decisions in life
and he really wishes Jadeite would stop trying to eat all the glue
I’m reading The Wheel of Ice, by S. Baxter… though haven’t finished it yet, but I wanted to write down my associations to somewhere—-
In the beginning, Zoe reads Huxley’s Brave New World… and the mining colony has A, B, C and D categories for people, just like in BNW they have Alphas, Betas, etc. So that’s an obvious reference.
When Sam and gang goes down deep into the moon, there is an eye, on a tripod… A.C.Clarke-S.Baxter writes of eyes in their Time Odyssey trilogy…
And in connection with Clarke… Saturn, the original destination of the Discovery One, in 2001: A Space Odyssey, only in later books and in the two movies it’s changed to Jupiter… also this far, the whole book gives of a 2001-ish feeling to me…
Is It just me? Have I read too many distopias and classic sci-fi?
