    I was on Deviantart when I saw a notice from Prodigyduck.
    InputJack whose real name was Marc Curlee has died due to Covid 19

    Some of you will have seen some of his art in the Champions forum for example.
    He even did a piece for me.
    This one hits home.
    RIP

    mattingly reacted to archer in Emergency thoughts and prayers please   
    Hi, got to make this quick. Been out of power since about 15 minutes after my last post however many days ago.
     
    If you want TL:DR please go to the end to see my request.
     
    A pipe burst in my ceiling however many days ago, been without water and electricity since then. Haven't been capable of cleaning up the mess and the company which way willing hasn't been able to tackle the job due to no generators available.
     
    Finally after a long day of scavanging online and driving around in person, my wife scored us a hotel room which would take us and our cats.
     
    Skipping over long ordeals between each paragraph.
     
    Got to the hotel, checked in. Our room has no heat. Still a HUGE upgrade over what we'd been living in since we had plumbing and could take showers.
     
    I spent a lot of time after getting to the hotel convulsing and when not doing that shaking like someone who has Parkinson's really badly due to my health conditions rather than from the cold. My wife was so busy with her back toward me that she didn't notice the convulsions or she'd been trying to get me to a hospital because that's not a normal part of my symptomology.
     
    Anyway after midnight, the fire alarm went off so we donned our clothes, gathered purses, wallets, and pet carriers for our three cats and made for the door. I'd previously noticed there was a strong odor in the hall but nothing that smelled the slightest bit dangerous. 
     
    My wife and adult daughter got ahead of me because I forgot my rather large bag of medicine.
     
    By the time I caught up with them instead of stopping in the lobby area or the adjacent dining room, they'd gone outside into the roughly 27 degree weather. A hotel employee caught me as I was passing and told me there was no emergency.
     
    As I got outside I shouted at my family that everything was okay and to come back. My wife was hysterical because the pet carrier she had burst open and Baby, a house cat with zero outside experience had disappeared into the night.
     
    Got to cut this shorter. My wife ended up falling on the ice/snow and hurting herself. An ambulance took her to the hospital alone while we continued the search.
     
    My daughter who spends a lot of time in a wheelchair, and who was the one whose car flipped, wasn't able to continue long and she went back inside. My other daughter wasn't doing well in the cold but continued with me some time.
     
    I rallied like a champ last night and spent over 4 hours outside searching. Caught a glimpse of Baby around 4 am under a car around the back of the hotel but she didn't appear interested in coming to me despite being four feet away and me having wet food for her on the ground in front of me when I saw her. Haven't caught a glimpse of her again.
     
    The temp this morning has dropped another six degrees from what it was last night and the wind has picked up and is howling like a banshee. I went out and managed one round of the building and had to call it quits.
     
    The hopital this morning couldn't find anything wrong with my wide despite the fact that she can no longer walk and kicked her loose. They after a heroic effort, managed to find a cab to bring her back to the hotel.\\
     
    We managed to get her back to the room and into bed after a lot of effort. WE used the power chair which we keep in the van. If couldn't find traction on the snow but did okay after getting inside.
     
    I sat for a while in the lobby and dining room area lookng out windows hoping to catch a glimpse of Baby.
     
    I really need your thoughts and prayers in this because it's going to take a miracle at this point to get her to come to me. I'm going back outside in a moment to circle the building endlessly looking for her.
     
    She's a beautiful Calico who's named after Dr. Tachyon's ship if that helps you focus your thoughts and prayers.
     
    Gotta go, Thanks.

    Personally I would have loved more Hero products from Allen Thomas. He's a very creative writer with a distinctive approach to the material. I hope he's doing well.
     
    If you did consider doing ARGENT as a sectional book (not saying you should), my own summary of published ARGENT data grouped it into related sections: History, Goals and Methods, Structure and Personnel, Front Companies, Global Activities, Associates and Allies, Rivals and Enemies, ARGENT-Created Superhumans, and ARGENT Technology. Perhaps that could be suggestive of a similar breakdown?

    My kid flipped her car a few minutes ago and is trapped inside. I'm not able to do stuff like walk or talk intelligibly this morning so my wife and other daughter are en route to the accident scene.
     
    She was able to call us and tell us she's not badly hurt
     
    Prayers and best wishes are solicited. Given my current state, It's likely to be a long while until I update you.
