There was anger in the threat that caught me off guard. Was it this miasma that had pushed her to that level of anger?
Y’know, when she put the word “paranoia” on it, I really thought she’d figured it out, but she hasn’t been acting like it.
I wasn’t feeling anything like that. Had something about the way he had talked provoked her? Or was that the norm for her?
Hmm. Y’know, I was assuming it just takes a little time to set in, but what if Taylor’s power makes her immune or resistant to toxins because of her affinity to bugs? Granted, she was still affected by the paralysis dust and partially affected by the anti-power elements in that…
I tried to think back to my prior experiences with her and found nothing.
As in, you don’t remember her acting anything like this, or you don’t remember your prior experiences at all?
The latter would be a result of the miasma trying to suppress anything in your memories that would tell you to trust people. This would also explain why Legend called her “little girl” rather than her name, if that’s not just an indication of disrespect.
(We do know Taylor remembered Vista from the Leviathan fight, at least before she ended up in the miasma.)
What was her name?
Yep, there we go, it’s setting in and removing all reason for Taylor to trust anyone.
