_Last Merge_  
I'm having a bad idea.  Talk me out of it!

Right now i've got Helios skinning by the Dino World and smacking into a primitive world.

I really don't want them to merge with dinosaurs, do I? Could I get away with human-dino merges surviving as intelligent dinosaurs? Why do I want to do such an insane thing?

Pam I want to obey and talk you out of it. ... but it is such a damn seductive idea. I kind of like intelligent Dino’s but it is really something to. ... .... ... run from/towards.

That sounds like something out of a SyFy Channel original movie you'd see on a Saturday night, to be followed by a replay of Sharknado 2. I just can't figure out if that's a good thing or not. Just think of all the alliterative possibilities:

Ahja vs. Ankylosaurus
Ebsa vs. Eotyrannus
Eldon vs. Eoraptor
Nighthawk vs. Neovenator
Paer vs. Parkosaurus
Ra'd vs. Rugops
Rael vs. Rinchenia
Xen vs. Zephyrosaurus

On second thought, those sound more like matches from a bad wrestling show or video game.

No, no you cannot. Maybe for about five seconds. With massive magic.

Just look at the DNA differences. Birds and mammals.

Tell the muse that walled books are bad. She'll listen, right? Muses are sensible like that. Aren't they?


P.S. I'll find you some references on the differences if you need. They're kicking around here somewhere. In a box with other books, I' sure.

Okay. I think I'm over it. Maybe, maybe a bit less caffeine and sugar . . .

Maybe do a primate n human and have the bad guys suffer karma for all the bad crap the did from all the other merges

Primitive society vs dinos ...

An interesting idea, butt...
...it would create a whole bunch of troubles.

Is a Dino x Human hybrid intelligent enough to use technology? To build gate machinery?
If not it would take out the Helios as a danger to other worlds.

Also you would have to rewrite some unpublished stories. (and one or two published)
To my knowledge, Eldon is to nuke the Helios miniverse.
Gets injured by the backlash and is drifting through the multiverse after that, right?

Now halfdinos can't stealthily invade a human world to snatch merge victims from the Empire of the One and the 'Baldness Cure' world.

Halfdinos would introduce a bunch of inconsistencies into your story arc.

However intriguing the idea is, I would recommend against it.

Well at least you arent tempted to throw a squad of cyborgs into the mix to also merge with the dinosaurs.

Yeah. I'm having enough trouble with this one. Adding in Cyborgs would really be too much!
