Space!Family, meet Other!Space!Family! I've been looking forward to this meeting for a while, and by no means does it disappoint. I can see that Ezra didn't expect the Idiot's Array cell to also be a Space!Family... one can almost see and hear his brainwheels turning as he ponders the implications. Little bro? Little sis? Pygmy roba? A lot comes packaged with this Ace! And with those miles and miles of family members in between, it doesn't look like Ezra and Mara will be getting of their much wished-for alone time anytime soon. Especially not since Raissa, who's perfectly on top of things as usual, has manifestly figured them out and is putting the ultimate crimp on their style by sending Little Bro and Little Sis along on their tour of the house. (Indeed, I would wager that Raissa, in true Raissa fashion, has probably "heard" every word of their Force conversation—though darned if she's going to let that on until the time is right). But the way things are going, that whummffy pig-dog beastie with his little "Share?" Force-gesture may just turn out to be Ezra's "in" with Mara's family. Whatever feelings of annoyance Raissa may be harboring toward Ezra (and her elder daughter) at this point, she needs must eventually arrive at the realization that someone whom her own dear Frugly likes that much cannot be all bad. (I will be curious to see if he, too, tags along on the tour of the house...) Wonderful meeting of the families, and I can't wait to see more. Even if it crimps Mara and Ezra's style a bit, it will be so much fun to see more of Annina and Domnic and how they get on with Mr. S. Six. And of course I am rabidly curious now about what the adults may want to talk about on their own!
