That aside, I note that Vanity seems to be responding to far more detailed comments than Stoker's usual fairly simple communications that we've seen to date. Is Stoker occasionally more verbose than we've seen so far, or is Vanity merely 'filling in the blanks'?
Oh, and Kat, as your adventures are getting weirder, I suspect that you need to start disciplining yourself. There is no "leaving it in the car", especially if your life and, possibly, your eternal soul is at stake.
(Memo to Kat: Get Denziens to modify Pez dispensers into hand-held multi-payload railguns.)
