Okay, with every stitch of siglerism I absorb the one part of my junkie lust I fear will go unsatisfied for YEARS (at least until mt. Fitzroy) is the burning mystery of the WASP
To be more specific, the Wasp like enemy of the Roctopi. So I have started this thread to try and figure out some more information about then and share theories and ideas about just what the hell they could be.
Why care so much you ask, well think of it, they were raising hell though the galaxy thousands of years before the events of Earthcore, which according to the FDO is the first book in the siglerverse, they are literally the OG’s of the siglerism. Before the Triangles, the Bats, there were the WASP’s man.
Now keep in mind that WASP is not their official name, that’s just for simplicity because its really all we have to go on.
Its small, but Roctopi Red is a flavor of drink in GFL time, and while that is probably just the FDO giving us a little wink, it could be thought that whatever the events of Mt.Fitzroy are the Roctopi could be revealed to the world putting their name in the zeitgeist only to come up again when some human marketer in 2638 is trying to name a red sports drink.
I believe it was theorized that the ancient Roctopi’s plan was to use the primitive earth as a base to regroup and expand to prepare for a counter attack against the WASP’s before everything that happened to them…happened to them.
If the Wasp’s were around thousands of years age, then where have they been now, the Roctipi were able to last this long though disease and inbreeding in a hole in the ground, surely the Wasp’s would have been able to survive as a species, a species that might not have had punch drive and therefore would be closer to earth then it would need to be in modern GFL time.
I have 2 theories, that the wasp evolve extremely fast and are now hidden as one of our friendly neighborhood races (as the Leekee or the Quyth if I had to bet, POSSIBLY the creterakians)
Or that, like the creterakians before them, they are merely biding there time, waiting for the perfect opportunity to strike. Contagious forced us to destroy a major city, how much damage and distraction will be caused when the Pandemic hits
