Brilliant; love the pacing. I'm curious about what connotations 'doing whatever makes her happy' entails. This does answer why the surgery was pushed up, both her condition in it's state and the availability of lungs (presumably from someone who had just died).

I'm super curious about this because transplants aren't generally *scheduled* events by their very nature. I mean, you can't really schedule a live donor to die at a certain time in the future. So either she's going full cyborg with artificial lungs, or they grew her new ones...

...And the later option could be pretty morally ambiguous...

Maybe they have been happily donated by certain terrorist :P
damastech (Guest) edit delete reply
I think at this point they'd have some way to cultivate organs, and a donor became "available," thus "moved up"

They should be able to clone lungs in that society. They are nearly able to do it now. (In the meantime: 3D-printed tissue. I think that already works with certain organs, ones that do not need specialized cells.) Of course the cloning still needs time...

It does beg the question, where does the lungs come from ?

Her mother ?
Greeb (Guest) edit delete reply
Ideally, you'd want the grown transplant to come from someone with the same DNA, to limit the risk of rejection.

Aw, so fragile and all out of steam.
So unlike the usual Alis that we know.

She's never looked this vulnerable before...

Man, the pacing is off the charts since the boat trip, so many random things happening one after another. Seems like you want to bring the comic to an end as soon as possible.
