“Needs denied” posted

My story this week is a new one in the Meta-physics plot arc of the Transhuman Congress, called “Needs denied“:

Chase shook his head slightly. “Are you interested?”

Miriam didn’t have to think more than twice. “Yes, but I’m not going to be quiet and meek and let stuff slide.”

He actually smiled slightly. “That’s good. Keep that attitude. I have a variety of projects I want to bring you in on.”

“Projects like the Metas?” Miriam fired back.

Chase’s smile twisted a little as he said, “Yes, projects like the Metas. Projects like Lina. The Hadas and the Nortons.”

Obviously, I hint at a few more note-worthy AI models here, but I wanted to provide a glimpse into some of the inner workings of the Congress itself. This story follows “Special needs“, where Miriam is introduced.

I should note that if there’s anything you want to know more about in the ‘verse, post a comment or email me, and I can work up a story about it.

    I love it. So frustrating that you provide more questions than answers. I want to know more about Chase; he’s implicated in Lina and in the Metas. I want to know what party he’s the minority leader for. I want to know Miriam’s last name.
