Kass is like...a guy who had his phone taken and replaced with a new phone.  All his files and stuff are ported over, he got his tunes, his photos, his website links.
But a different OS.  It's a different shape too, it just feels wrong in his hands.  The layout's a headache, the paths to his intended goals are different.  Things he used to be able to do without concentrating have become a wrestling match with an alien GUI.  And there's functions he's used to having but now gone, and functions he has no idea this new OS has got until he accidentally awakens one.  Like the program that 'auto Likes' any audio file tagged 'fart'.
Like the disco-rave-dubstep remix that blasts when he triggers the Clams Got app.
He refuses to even try and explore the Vagina app.
Here might just be his well-developed human empathy shining through, but it might be an insidious Maternal Instinct update trying to run in the background.  The hell of it is, I dunno if Kass himself is sure which of those is the answer.

Hey, just caught up on Out-Of-Placers for the first time since... this time last year! Happy to see it's still going strong, and as fun as ever. And I can't help but wonder about this unhatched egg!

Hmm, if Kass does feel some sort of sympathy for the creature, that does not necessarily mean she's becoming more nurturing, or maternal. It just means she still has empathy for other's. A h u m a n trait if I do say so myself. Something that I don't really think yinglets understand yet due to their naive youthfulness as a species. However, I suppose only time will tell whether or not I am right.

I imagine most yinglets sound like Jerry Lewis, sucking helium and putting on a bad French accent.  It makes the comedy even better but really drops a load of bathos on the serious bits.  :D

This is probably the most "yinglet" I've ever seen Vizlet in a while.  Usually, she's self-controlled enough to keep such thoughts to herself.  Now, though, the filter is off.  

Personally, I think Kass's sympathy for the unhatched one is probably connected to his own disenfranchised state.  He's a man/rat thing without a country just trying to survive, and here we have a yinglet without a future still trying to survive.

I think there's a fair distinction between empathy and maternal instinct. It is nice to see Kass show concern for something in this nightmare-inducing nursery though.

Well, there's also the matter of practicality.  Trying to help an egg hatch can actually be dangerous to the animal inside.  It can be done, but it has a relatively small window of opportunity and requires a bit of know-how.  Even then, there's a good chance that in trying to help, you'll actually cause the hatchling to bleed to death.  

Regarding Kass's attitude though...sorry Viz, we can't all be John Hammond

THe question is that might not exactly be Kassie's 'maternal' instinct. That just might be plain old Kass.  He seems like the sort of guy who doesn't like to see suffering or the weak being cast aside. Remember folks. Paternal instinct is a thing too, and its no less potent or nurturing than maternal instinct. You only have to see the fuss some dads make over their kids.

I suppose part of it also comes from Kass realizing just how hard yinglets have it. I mean the realization that some of them don't even get to the starting line. Its the sort of realization you get when you puzzle why just about every herbivore can stand walk and run within an hour of being born. WHy because if they don't they'll die.


I'm guessing Vizlets own Yinglet bias is showing as well. She seems to be focusing more on Kassies change of species  more so than the equally jarring change in gender and the mindset that comes with either. Which makes sense. For yinglets there's not as much divergence in terms of roles and expectations. In fact the differences that are there are almsot strictly based on biological capability.  The only real difference between a male and female seems to be one will lay an egg or two after a good round of vigorous humping.

On another note. Anyone think that Ran and Vizlet in a room together is one of Kass's nightmares?

Extract from Kass' internal conflict:
 - It hasn't hatched yet. Why?
 - Shouldn't somebody help it? Should I help it?
 - It's how nature sorts the strong form the weak.
 - Maybe it's just slower to develop?
 - Even the matriarch says it's late.
 - But it's just there, all it would take is a little tear to get it started.
 - Their resources are limited. You'd be as good as adopting it.
 - Ach, no! I've got enough problem as is! I don't need to take care of a
Yinglet baby on top of everything else!
 - WHAT?! CONCERNED ABOUT IT? GOD DAMMIT VIZLET!

It's like one of those nature programs you see.
Where nature is as cruel as it comes, and you want to intervene as a higher force.
The saying is that nature is cruel, though just as often we say " Does it have to? If I can prevent it? "
Vizlet is right here.
But on the other side and maybe Kass´s side, we are like " But its not fair! It needs my help. "
Not necessarily being the "mother instinct" talking.

Okay Vizlet is seriously my favorite character! She's smart and cynical enough to deal with a shitty, unfair world on its own terms, but just dumb and optimistic enough to remain utterly endearing in her unstable stabs at emotional manipulation. Utterly wonderful!

To be fair, Kass used to be a human. You know, those animals with group-bonding instinct so strong that the very presence of another being sets it off.
Seriously, you put an animal in front of us and our first response is almost always to touch it saying we are nice.

I want to see, how the conversation between Ran and Vizlet goes.
How long can a Younglet be late with hatching? (I mean without suffering damag because of it?)

By their very nature Men can and do feel maternal instincts or children regardless. It is difficult to say how much of this is new Yinglet instinct or old holdovers from being human.

Unless we turn a Yinglet human, just like one your non canon images!

I vote Yizlet for the process!

I'm sorry. I honestly don't know how it ended up saying that, and think that was probably where the confusion started. I still don't know how Instincts got translated to Pinpoints... I don't think I have any sort of auto correct. Maybe I was tired?
