On Curiosity

August 6, 2012 4 comments

By now you’ve probably all heard that NASA has successfully landed the probe Curiosity on Mars. This, of course, is excellent in all kinds of ways and I’m for it.
But I do have one problem with the whole thing, and that’s this: I was planning on using the word “Curiosity” as the superhero name of one of the characters in Ded & Sac*. I still could, I guess, but now I’m not sure I want to. I don’t want to connote the Mars probe with the character, see. Now, “Curiosity” isn’t so descriptive of Jen’s superpowers that I can’t do without it, but honestly I’ve kinda been saving up this superhero name for years and am reluctant to discard it. So I’m not sure what to do. Anybody have any thoughts?

* which is still coming along; finished a chapter today!
