The guidelines for stories about BioScout are as follows:
- Anything may occur to them, but by the end of each story, no permanent
damage must have befallen either of the main characters (i.e.,
Dr. Georgette LaPierre, alias BioScout and Dr. Carlton Waldorf
Maldonato, who does not currently have an alias -- please discuss
aliases with the author before assigning them. Public figures
like the President of the United States are open targets -- have
fun. Please also remember that BioScout is basically a big boyscout
... err ... girl scout and Maldonato is basically your closet
- The name of the place where events are occurring is never actually
named, unless she visits another superhero (e.g., Batman in Gotham
- BioScout's powers are limited to nearly instantaneous change into
any female shape, animal or human, or any combination thereof,
however, the power must match what would be found in real life.
Thus, if BioScout were to want the night vision of a cat, she
would need to have an eye that looked like a cat's. This includes
the extremes of human or animal characteristics (e.g., no taller
than the tallest human -- about 8'6" and no smaller than the smallest
animal). No inanimate objects.
- Mass is conserved. This means that BioScout cannot grow without
taking in mass (remember she eats a lot) or shrink without losing
mass (e.g., severe diarrhea).
- Brain pan size is also an issue. Put BioScout's brain in the head
of a mouse and she is effectively dead as a human being as she
would not have space for the memories that make her human.
- BioScout rarely, if ever uses a costume. After all, she is a wanted
criminal thanks to the good Doctor. Plus, I suspect she would
scare a lot of people if they knew someone like her existed. Dr.
Maldonato always hides in the background, rarely, if ever, coming
into the public light.
- There may be other superheros around.
In case of questions, contact the author. It is not required, but it would be appreciated if first right
of publication were offered to TSAT.
