Book 5, 40: Red Shoes, Blue God

The original disco super-person. Chokers are back (although I haven't seen any inch-wide ones made of tinfoil yet), but not the eye-makeup. At least, not yet.

Book 5, Chapter 38: Sidekick to a Spirit Quest

Sometimes, we're the hero in our own story, and sometimes we have to be the sidekicks in someone else's. Doesn't mean you can't use the dress again, later!

A wedding is about the bride, so no matter what the bridesmaid's dress looks like, you just nod and smile. But not when she tells you that "You'll be able to wear it again for something else." If you want to make that joke, you need to, I don't know, go to the basement of the CIA headquarters to make it.

Or post the pictures on the Internet.

Book 5, 37: When Your Breakfast Smells of Hand Grenades

Book 5, 36: A Long Time Dreaming

On the ancient ramparts of the last city of a dying species on a dying planet, the last boy walks, and wonders. It's a great setup, although I'm not sure how you deliver on it.

And from the soundtrack of The Martian. . .

Book 5, 35: He Will Go No More A-Wandering

Home is the hunter.

People have weird hairdos in the Future. The character was introduced in 1964, so he didn't start out as a Wolverine imitation, but I think the hair of the class 70s Legion incarnation speaks for itself. Too bad, because if Wolverine's so cool, why did he spend 35 years in high school?
