    Thank you for the offer, but since I think the covers belong into a review thread, I think I'll try to repost the covers on the older review threads next weekend (no chance I will find the time during the week).

    Do you have a specific reveal in mind that you're working towards, or are you just having fun making him mysterious?

    This is just a guess, but I'd say that's between Mr. Bennett and Mr. Lucsly, and for them to know, and us to find out when the time comes. Did ADF reveal much about his long-term plans for Flinx before he'd filled in the gap between The End of the Matter and Bloodhype? Would I reveal my long-term plans for child prodigy organist Jennifer Schweitzer, when the only thing that's gotten any further (in terms of publication) than a writing class anthology is the single short story that I put on my web site?

    In the annotations, it's stated Lucsly really is that plain, but the storytelling is richer for implying hidden depths. That doesn't preclude future revelations about him.

    To me, Lucsly is a constant. He is who he is. Other people project their own narratives onto him, but he just goes on with his work.

    I want to believe that a Lucsly exists in every universe that earth made it into space.

    He is working with Memory Omega's time agency in the MU in my head canon.

    I can only imagine what a Mirror Lucsly might be like. :eek: :lol:

    Rather not think about that at all.

    Lucsly is like the Phantom Stranger. Nobody really knows WHO he is.

    Mirror Lucsly would probably be just like Prime Lucsly. He's like a (multi)universal constant.
