Jean-Henri Fabre? That was the identity of the grasshopper man who attacked me in Jinbocho and tried to steal my book? But... but that's just not possible!

Why is it not possible? Was he someone you knew of?
Jun. 6th, 2010 11:27 am (UTC)
Yes... he was an author who wrote an extensive book on insects who died nearly 100 years ago.
Jun. 6th, 2010 07:01 pm (UTC)
Died? You're saying that he somehow came back to life in that state?
Jun. 6th, 2010 09:17 pm (UTC)
I... I really have no idea how this could have happened. It defies logic... I haven't remembered anything about any ways that it could be possible for the dead to be restored to life and with unusual powers...
Jun. 6th, 2010 09:23 pm (UTC)
Perhaps you will soon. It's difficult to believe that someone could have been resurrected, and in such a way at that . . .

This might be a dumb question, but... who is Mr. Fabre, anyway?
Jun. 6th, 2010 11:35 am (UTC)
Jean-Henri Fabre was an expert in entomology, the study of insects, Jaime. He wrote a book on the subject called Souvenirs Entomologiques... He died in the year 1915.

What? But if he's dead... how can he still be alive in your world?
Jun. 6th, 2010 06:28 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure either... this doesn't make sense at all. If he'd been dead for almost 100 years, why was he in Jinbocho trying to steal my book? And... where do the giant grasshopper and his antennae fit into it?
Jun. 6th, 2010 06:38 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure... but maybe time travel was involved? And perhaps his superpower's being able to control a grasshopper?

... Okay, this is officially a new low. I can't believe that in my world, stuff like what you described is actually ordinary.

[Yomiko chuckles.] Don't pay it much mind, Jaime. Your input is very much appreciated. I hadn't considered either of those possibilities before!

They may not be the truth, but it's certainly something to think about until you remember the whole story.

You're... uh, welcome, I guess?
Jun. 8th, 2010 02:55 am (UTC)
I'll accept any theories I can get until I remember the truth, if in fact I did come to learn the truth behind the matter. I appreciate your help!

Mystery solved! Clearly, this man was of an ancient race of giant grasshopper demons.
Jun. 8th, 2010 02:54 am (UTC)
...how do you figure that, Mr. Klarth? All I'm aware of is that he wrote a book on insects in the past in my world...
Jun. 10th, 2010 01:58 am (UTC)
Just a joke. I'm inclined to think that if demons were willing to take insect form at all, they'd be locusts. Which are actually almost the same things as grasshoppers, but.

You don't remember anything else about him? Odd.
Jun. 11th, 2010 05:23 pm (UTC)
Hmm... locusts...

No, all I know is that while he lived, he wrote a book on insects, but... he died long before I was even born, and I don't remember anything about him historically that indicated that he had any special abilities or that he had animal-like characteristics...

. . . Do you think it might've been someone else impersonating him, then? Dead authors don't usually come back to life as giant grasshoppers.
