Awesome Art!

Nothing makes me happier than when our work inspires other people's creativity. This is wonderful and amazing art by Wraith Worshipper on DeviantArt. I hope she doesn't mind me reposting so you can see how gorgeous it is! Now I've got to put this scene in Unascended!

Ember and Newton by Wraith Worshipper

And here's my cat Selene, no longer a kitten but the inspiration for Newton.

Wraith and kitties. You know, if the Wraith could cuddle cats I think it would solve a lot of problems...well, that and finding a source of food that did not involve humans. Why did Carson never try to modify pigs to be digestible to Wraith instead of trying to turn the Wraith into people? One would think the ethics would be slightly less shaky that way around.

An excellent question! Wraith are obligate animavores -- they don't feed on flesh, but on life force -- on the soul if you will. Many, many times over the millennia since the First Mothers the Wraith have tried to genetically modify various animals to provide sustenance, without success. They cannot give a pig a soul.

And that raises a whole lot of questions about how some Wraith factions view humans, and their place in their society. Oh the bunnehs, they do hop so.

I saw the picture few weeks ago before reading the book, and when I read the scene, I immediately recognized it and talked with worshipper about it, taking the blame for it :)
What a nice kitty- I am, myslef, a cat person! Is she a breed?

Selene is a lilac point Siamese. So therefore so is Newton!

(Selene does not wave a paw, as she is sleeping in the chair beside my desk, and sleeping is very serious business.)
