(1) You're right. I never thought that was a point of contention. We've both claimed that we're too busy for children. And would be horrible parents. Thank the Gods and Goddesses. Every single one of them.
(2) Oh. That. It is technically a benign parasite in the normative sense, but this is a potentially malignant parasite in the metaphysical sense. After a demonic entity vomited dark matter on her. It happens.
(3) That might not be a bad idea, but it only works if you believe it will. If we do a conference call and I tell your parents that I'm involved in the mystic arts, would that qualify as a prayer circle?
(4) All right. There are ways this can happen (lets not go into the whole Rosemary's Baby thing) so I need you to answer this question for me: How would a young woman become pregnant if her partner is essentially an android and androids don't reproduce biologically?
