She's alive, but bleeding as they speak, hence Kat saying they're definitely going to need you. Obviously Tia couldn't perform any stitching, etc. needed to fix her up, but she can at least do her best to slow the bleeding until Mac returns.

If Kat wanted her dead, all she would have to do is let Marie shoot the chief, then she could use the resulting confusion in the police department to pretty much get away with anything she wants, she went for a non-fatal shot, as long as Marie gets the care she needs.

Mac tries one more time to have a heart to heart with Tia before continuining the case, especially after all their recent troubles.

There are so many stories where I can't help but secretly wish the characters would just accept their happiness and save themselves from the sad ending you know they're headed toward, so I had to work that moment into this story, we'll have to see how that plays out with Tia though.

Hmm....a question arises.

Kat is a super-thief criminal who can assume different forms, and she claims she is doing this for the money. What kind of cash can two off-the-force cops put together to hire her?

Couldn't Kat take the form of Mac and [almost] kill Tia by saying they're breaking up?
Hurray!

Not quite, She can change her physical appearance, but she's not an outright shapeshifter, basically she could impersonate any Human woman as long as there isn't too much of a height difference that people might notice. What makes her special is being able to alter her own physical state to match others, which means no chance of ruining makeup or prosthetics should anyone check, but that does mean she has to stick to female humans to impersonate and try not to go too far out of her own natural range.

I personally love to give characters challenges, I hate overpowered unstoppable superman-like characters, so giving a character an ability that gives them a huge advantage is something, but it has its consequences and limits as well.

That would probably be a very lucrative situation for macros, never thought of that before, the amount one macro could donate would take care of so many normal or micro people it'd be ridiculous. But then there might be issues with not just blood type, but species type, wonder how that would work? Think we need a vet to look into this.


To answer the original, she asked in page 5 if Tia could afford her, of course she has her doubts that Tia can actually pay, but considering the path their current relationship is taking Kat will obviously be looking for other payment arrangements, which was always an implied requirement of her service should someone fail to carry their end of the agreement.

Well, humans and apes have four blood types... felines only have three (A, B, and AB, but no O), and canines have something like eight different types. (Friends of mine used to have a rescued greyhound that was one of the 'universal donor' blood types for dogs, and he donated a lot of blood over the years.) Get into ungulates like horses and it's even messier.

Well that is exactly what I was hoping for, sounds like it definitely would be difficult to match up blood-types for a macro/anthro world like we've created here. Still though, I'll bet macros really could make a killing in things as simple as blood donation, or marrow donation, etc.

Maybe we should just keep things simple and go back to, it's a fantasy, don't think so hard about it and just enjoy it.
