Nope

Not worth it in the slightest

I had wondered who the doctor could be, then remembered the other scientists who helped the hybrids escape.

Tragic and moving chapter.

@Chef LeGameboy: let's hope Alpha learned, and learned the right thing, from this

@foducool: Same...Putting a fellow hybrid in danger is despicable. She needs to learn to control her temper.

September 3rd, 2018, 11:49 pm

When the ex lab coat says something that bad with one of the hybrids you know it is really bad. October's tears have me thinking that it's not even reached the lowest it goes yet.

oh Alpha

Why must Alpha repeat history and cause more suffering?

September 4th, 2018, 12:54 am

I'm still trying to figure out just how much the Pack link fits into this?

The inner Dialogue between Alpha and Moonlight shows that it's on levels of being psychic with how much information is being passed between them. And Technically Moonlight did concede to Alpha, she had to have known what Alpha would do if she did that.

It also makes me wonder how much a link like that could be as much a burden, as it could be a boon, when it comes to the slaughter at the base that was attacked by the Redeyes?

HA! Take THAT, Alpha. Your life was saved by one of those filthy humans that you hate so much. NEVER forget that, you cunt!
Rant aside, we were blessed with two panels of Mary's abs. My cup runneth over.

They have...

...the technology.
They can rebuild her.

...well, do they...?

Knowledge

@Rosscoe: Knowledge such as this is hard won and often regretted, Rage and pain can motivate beyond logic and reason.

With something such as a pack-mind, you can only expect it to deepen and compound.

Amplify your rage and pain, and I mean the real rage and pain the I will destroy what is in front of me, (regardless of personal or collateral damage kind of pain few experience in this life thankfully so) by how many close family you have and you have what Moony and Alpha experienced

September 4th, 2018, 8:13 am

WAIT SO MOONY WAS THE WOLF ON THE SAME BOAT WITH MUGGER

)=<

At first I was wondering what happened thn i figure it out when i saw two wolves unsheath a sword when only one was present...

You low down STUPID SELFISH HEARTLESS ICE QUEEN OF A BITCH!!!!!! NONE of that was for "The Pack!" Your friend was already badly injury and you FORCED HER TO FIGHT WITH YOU. I AM SO PISSED OFF AT HER RIGHT NOW!!!!!

I understand the anger... but to drag anotherteam mate into it... not only that one that had just been shot...NOT ONLY THAT THE ONE YOU SEEM TO CARE ABOUT THE MOST!

I have to leave... i would have to just go find something to rage on cause I would beat the hell out of her one that damn bed. To hell with someone else injuries right? Just let your anger do the thinking right? Don't even matter if its you best friend in all the world. She can't blame that shit on humans.

I hope moon kicks her ass or just turns on her. she needs a wake up call.

September 4th, 2018, 10:19 am

Well Alpha you got your sister and self turned into Swiss cheese with moonlight getting the worst of it all cause of your anger issues.
Hope it was worth it.

September 4th, 2018, 12:34 pm

One long and painful recovery please...

...because my doctor told me to cut back on permanent damage. But he said it's fine to keep it uncertain for a while.

Yay, she lives. And I still can't hate Alpha. I know how it feels to screw up. Her deepest core values were shredded when her pack was annihilated.

And it's irrelevant that I am more conscious about what I've been doing, or not doing when I should have. If one is too weak to make the changes, nothing changes. Sometimes it takes a competent friend. Let's hope she gets one. So far, no one knows what to do with her. Blame and sarcasm won't work. Treating symptoms rarely works.

I don't really think Alpha needs more hostility to wake up. Check out the Tony Robbins videos about Hannah, Lyndsey, Sam (relationship storms), if you can find them, they pop up on youtube now and then. That's how to deal with pain.

They call it hate, but it's hurt.

Sometimes really big screwups deny the possibility to delegate the guilt, so this might just become the point where Alpha searches for a better way to deal with the pain.

September 4th, 2018, 8:42 pm

Mmmm power thighs.

mmm

September 4th, 2018, 9:02 pm

Y.D.F.U.

YOU DUN FUDGED UP!

September 4th, 2018, 9:55 pm

VENGEANCE IS ALWAYS WORTH IT!

September 4th, 2018, 11:28 pm

@msouth: If it's done against the right people. These guys are just a bunch of jackasses who got a lucky shot due to Alpha's fuck-up in the first place. All Alpha did here was exacerbate it.

The real revenge I'd pursue in her position is amassing as much evidence possible of the atrocities visited upon the hybrids, as well as any evidence of further war crimes Hedron used them to commit. I know some hybrids blame the scientists that brought them into this world, but I think at least getting the jerks who gave the kill orders in the first place should answer for their crimes.

September 5th, 2018, 12:13 am

@Black Pete: Alpha crossed a line. She's already been given two chances, and not only did she throw them away, she dragged others down with her. I know this sounds cruel, but a huge part of me is praying that moonlight doesn't wake up, just so she has to live with the pain, and finally realize what has happened.

September 5th, 2018, 2:03 am

You can tell this is an awesome arc by how charged these comments are. Excellent job Kenno!

September 6th, 2018, 11:12 am

@foducool: The smart money says that no, Alpha has not learned yet. Sadly, hatred and bigotry aren't that easy to recognize or correct for. In all probability, she'll see it as entirely the fault of the humans.

If you've ever seen the movie 42, there's an early scene which touches on the phenomenon, wherein Rickey asks Johnson if he can have the guts not to fight back. As he succinctly notes, the bigots will provoke him and hypocritically ignore their own actions while taking him to task if he ever responds in kind. "Echo a curse with a curse and they'll hear only yours. Follow a blow with a blow and they'll say 'the negro lost his temper'". Sadly, that's not an inaccurate characterization of cognitive dissonance, especially when tribalism comes into play. So again, smart money is that we'll see something similar in Alpha over the next page or so.

Of course, the smart money also says that her team - who have shown themselves to be more level headed - will have none of it and try to slap some sense into her (possibly literally).

September 6th, 2018, 7:38 pm

Welp

Ya dun goofed Alpha...

September 7th, 2018, 10:43 am

Not humans hurt moonlight, Alpha. You did. You are not human. You are not hybrid. You are a rabid animal.

September 7th, 2018, 2:20 pm

Shock therapy

As peculiar as it may sound what Alpha really needs is a more comprehension of humans and the easiest way i can see is on the one hand show her how human she actually is with her hate and prejudice and on the other literally rub it in her face that humans screw each other over all the time, and little gets done about it.
The hybrids were a severe embarrassment that could have seen the country sanctioned or worse invaded they're very existence could have sparked an international outcry resulting in the deaths of thousands if the country was invaded or attacked.

The most effective means i can think of is as cruel as it is simple put her on trial for treason against her sisters with a serious consideration of a death penalty.

After all they have no means to imprison or completely restrain her movements and total expulsion from hybrid society would run the risk of her exposing the rest of them if captured, to hear her actions have so endangered them all that they consider her a living liability would break through any excuse she could try to tell herself if it did not break her it would at the very least force a drastic reassessment.

Which would mean in the end even if they did not kill her she would be well aware that she is a pariah no hybrid would ever trust her, and associating with her may be a severe problem for others either way trial or not she is a liability which must be solved.

(cold i know but she's already been exiled from the den, and now this)

September 8th, 2018, 7:35 pm

@Anzar: I would argue that Alpha's actions are uniquely human, letting anger get the best of her and making Moonlight's situation much worse. My understanding is that most wild animals are more survival oriented and would have grabbed the prize and escaped.

September 9th, 2018, 1:48 pm

Heh. Truck to the face.

Never underestimate the power of Shark-fu. >:3

@ndrvr: Replacing broken parts is not always that simple with toys and the pieces at hand. With flesh and blood bits, so much less so.
