Are you ready for werewolves on the moon, sweaters that spontaneously vanish and finger painting?! It’s all here!
Man, this is already so much fun—and it’s just getting fun-ner! As those of you who know Jane Austen, and Emma in particular, are no doubt aware the first few chapters were exposition, introductions and setup for all the shenanigans to come—but we’re sure having fun with them anyway. One of my personal favorite highlights comes from the undead mouth of fatherly cyborg Mr. Woodhouse in the last chapter:
“Mrs. Goddard, what say you to half a glass of dimensional flux wine? A small half-glass, put into a tumbler of water? I do not think it could disagree with you, unless it unwittingly accesses a dimension where it exists as a surly barrister who delights in being contrary. Then, who could say.”
With all that setup largely addressed at this point, the plot is now put into motion. In chapter 4 we get our first chance to see what sort of action (and temperament) the mermaid’s tank is capable of, as well as the solid start to the anticipated romance meddling kicking off and the revelation of a secret not even Jane could’ve seen coming! We’ll learn about werewolves on the moon, sweaters that spontaneously vanish and finger painting! It’s all here!
Don’t forget to drop me line with your reactions and enjoy the continuing space opera hijinks that is EMMA3000, Chapter IV!
