Jami Comments: I’ll just let everyone else make their own captions for Space Fabio. You know, lingerie in space doesn’t seem practical.

    What’s holding her up? Zero-G or… Or….

  3. Andrew Says:

    All I’ll say is that if lingerie in space is impractical, how practical is it to have a cape that pins directly to your bare chest?

  4. Jami Says:

    LOL I didn’t even notice that, Andrew. Of course, there is a chain or something that goes between the medallions.

    This is from my personal collection. Yes, I read romance novels and I’m not ashamed of it! I also read mysteries, thrillers, comic books….

    How come Susan doesn’t rate two of those super special S’s?

  6. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Maybe his thumb is on her belly button, and he’s in the process of deflating her. 😉

  7. Phil Says:

    I see the tagmeister is fed up with DAMSELS and is now identifying space ladies as DASMELS.

    So according to Amanda Quick, Susan Krinard was born to write romance… but was unfortunately lumbered with servicing the fantasy and science fiction genres.

    Not to be consued with Ben Bova’s book:

    …nor with Cordwainer Bird’s creation:

  8. Phil Says:

    Of course, I meant CONFUSED, not consued. Serves me right for critiquing the tagmeister.

  9. Jaouad Says:

    There may be a chain between those medallions, but that still doesn’t explain how they are kept in place. That billowing cape should be strangling him.

    There is something rather weird going on with her far leg.

    As for what she’s sitting on, Mr. Inscrutable Space Cape has a leg held out in front of him, and I suppose we are to assume she is being supported by it.

  12. Phil Says:

    Good work, Tagmeister, in fixing the typo!

    @Phil. “So according to Amanda Quick, Susan Krinard was born to write romance… but was unfortunately lumbered with servicing the fantasy and science fiction genres.”

    Leading her compromise by writing “fantasy romance”, which, judging by the blurb, apparently consists of Georgette Heyeresque bodice-rippers… IN SPACE!!!

  14. Muttley Says:

    @Jami, I don’t care if he has got a chain between his medallions, there’s still nothing holding the cape to his body. It must be fashionable to have magnetic implants in the pectorals.

    They have to be in zero-G with all that hair and fabric floating around.

    Maybe he’s about to impart a little rotation to his love, in preparation for Space Kama Sutra position 2001 “The Docking Sequence”. You can just imagine “The Blue Danube” playing in the background.

    Too explicit? Feeling a little sheepish. Maybe he’s just going to take her for a spin.

    She’s a bit toothy, though. Some rabbit in her ancestry? No knowing what these space-aristo’s get up to.

  15. Rachel J Says:

    Muttley, I don’t think she’s got buck-teeth, I think she’s sneering at him.

  16. Muttley Says:

    Well, she does appear to have a sightline right up his manly left nostril. Maybe he has a weasel up there? And of course, as anyone who’s cultured will tell you, it should be a ferret.

  17. Green Says:

    Maybe she’s a genetically engineered human-rabit hybrid. That could the teeth and the science fiction part.

  19. anon Says:

    Anyone else think the billowing skirt looks like a rather awkwardly placed third leg?

  20. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “Susan Krinard was born to write romance… and go to the bathroom… and eat… and sleep… and many other things. Unfortunately, she was not born to write well.”
