It was a looooong craaaaaazy journey, friends. I guess having 435 thoughts is just normal. Before anything else, I want to thank my sweetest friend Imo @ Amidst the Pages who gave me her one and only copy of Gemina because she loves me and she haven’t read Illuminae yet so she does not know yet what did she just let slipped away from her hands lol. Can you guys please help me persuade her to read Illuminae Files trilogy?
Anyway, BEFORE YOU PROCEED, please read the following:
This time, I did not bother to conceal spoilers like this anymore because it would be hassle for me considering the number of thoughts I had while reading this masterpiece. So if you have not read Gemina yet, I’m afraid I have to suggest for you not to proceed anymore because you will stumble upon spoilers along the way, especially at the end. And I do not want to ruin your own experience reading Gemina when you finally do. So, I am sorry but for your own sake, please DO NOT PROCEED.
I was a curse machine while reading this. So if you have something against or do not curse or hate seeing those words, PLEASE DO NOT PROCEED. I was a curse machine while I was reading Illuminae and I still am while reading Gemina and I will probably still be while reading Obsidio. So, I am sorry but perhaps you could check other 100 Thoughts While Reading posts, instead.
IF you are planning NOT to read Gemina *which is SAD, btw* please feel free to enter this little world of thoughts of mine.
If you have read Gemina already, please also feel free to proceed AND PLEASE DO NOT FORGET TO SHARE SOME OF YOUR THOUGHTS WHILE READING GEMINA OR READING THIS POST. I could definitely use some chitchat about Gemina right now. And I would LOVE to hear from you.
So, that’s it! It is time for you to either retreat or proceed. I hope you enjoy!
#1 There are going to be alien predators? I really liked the sickness thing in Illuminae that made humans inhuman. I mean, I don’t like the sickness itself but how it contributed to the story was great. It made things really go more intense, crazy and scary as heck. I hope these alien predators will too. But I don’t like alien predators. Oh God am I even making sense?
#2 What’s BSA, MFS, JD?
#3 ARP? JD? OKT? MFA? MBA?
#4 Okay… PhD? Is that for those with doctorate degree? Lol tell me it is.
#5 Oh, I guess those acronyms are titles?
#6 The Kerenza trials is now on its 82nd day. So it’s been months.
#7 “alleged invasion” your face. That’s freaking real.
#8 They also attacked Heimdall????
#9 Who is Niklas Malikov?
#10 I think I have to get my Illuminae copy and put it right beside me while reading this so I can keep track of what specific things are they referring to and to refresh things in my head.
#11 Ah! I forgot who Leanne Frobisher is. Now I know. Yeah, that’s her.
#12 But who the heck is Niklas Malikov?
#13 I WANT TO SEE KADY AND EZRA RIGHT NOW.
#14 And who is Hanna Donnelly?
#15 Aww, I see. This starts the way Illuminae started. And lmao did I just read the synopsis at the back before opening the book? Why did I forget immediately that Nik and Hanna are the main characters???
#16 Ugh BeiTech really does not fail to make my blood boil.
#17 Remembering what happened in Illuminae and what all those persons went through, I really want BeiTech and everyone behind this burn to hell.
#18 Oh, Syra Boll! Reading your name makes me sad, Captain. You all did your best and did a great job at Hypatia. R.I.P. (EDITED a.k.a not included in #18 a.k.a. just my comment or note while reading this myself: lol pals, ikr? I’m such a fool I thought Syra was dead. And I genuinely felt sad at this time because I really thought she’s gone.)
#19 “Be still my beating something something” haha
#20 Ghad, I remember Kady and Ezra in these two.
#21 But of course, no one in space can beat Ezra and Kady.
#22 Wait- is that drugs?
#23 I guess Nik got some humour.
#24 I can’t imagine how embarrassed I will be if someone read my chat with someone like that. I can imagine them authorities’ stoney faces while reading but deep inside they’re already judging or making comments about me or us chatting.
#25 Haha aww, that failed.
#26 Haha lmao I didn’t imagine the one who is writing these brief notes will say that? I mean, is he trying to be funny? Because that worked.
#27 I don’t know what’s the exact word to describe Hanna but it’s at the tip of my tongue.
#28 Did he really use the word “habitat?”
#29 Oh God here comes the adorable illustrations!!!
#30 This illustration is so so adorable.
#31 Ahhh more of these awesome drawings please!
#32 I think Hanna is cool (?) Because of these drawings lol but I can smell like she can be a brat (????)
#34 Oh, I knew it. That was actually obvious. Nik has a crush on her.
#35 Poor cooow cooowsssssss
#36 I love the illustrations in Gemina more than I loved Illuminae’s.
#37 This drawing is so cute.
#38 Haha! WELL, Nik tried to flirt with her, THAT’S WHY.
#39 Seems like Hannah have all the time in the world to draw these.
#40 Aww, that’s second in a row. Stop hoping, Nik!
#41 Isaac Grant? Is that Kady’s father?
#42 SPEAKING OFF, COME ON, WOULDN’T I BE ABLE TO SEE KADY AND EZRA EVER AGAIN??? LIKE NO, YOU SHOULDN’T DO THAT TO ME. YOU KNOW?
#43 Shakespeare or no shakespeare, I kinda missed this vidtech a.k.a. transcriber guy and his surveillance footage transcpritions from Illuminae.
#44 Transcripting these kinds of survalliance videos is a cool job.
#45 I have this small smile plastered in my face for minutes, huh?
#46 Colorful language from our vidtech guy here, indeed.
#47 That’s too much, Mr. vidtech.
#48 “Little Nikky’s got balls” aww
#49 Damn poor Lucy
#51 Holy shit I can’t understand these scientific terms in Unipedia about Lanima.
#52 Agghh this Lanima thing is SO disgusting.
#54 Haha you’d think those brief notes attached to files used for investigations are formal… But here, they weren’t.
#55 The blood stain is getting bigger.
#56 Hanna is really an artist.
#57 Oh God I am so itching to know what happened to this blood stain.
#58 Seems Jackson is a romantic.
#59 Seems like he has humor too.
#60 THE BLOOD STAIN IS DISTRACTING ME SO FREAKING MUCH
#61 Holy crap haha “CHARM LEVEL: MY BODY IS READY” nice1
#62 Uhm, I’m reading waaaay too slow but I’m still enjoying my time ??? How ???
#63 The blood stain is soooo disturbing aaaAAhHHHh
#64 Aahh this is cute and romantic.
#65 I guess Jackson’s not bad afterall.
#66 Oh gosh. I feel like I want a Jackson Merrick after all.
#67 AAAAAAHHHHH OHGOOOOD MY HEART
#69 You’re cute, Nik.
#70 Ahh that makes me wonder. Kady and Hanna MIGHT clash.
#71 SO that’s him.
#72 Woah, so that’s where Aidan’s name came from! I thought it was just Aidan. Not an acronym AIDAN.
#73 Oh my- General David Torrence. R.I.P.
#74 Oh my Aidan! You’re so thoughtful (I know this sounds utterly ridiculous) until the end. And cute.
#75 I love that I’m finally knowing what really happened to Hiemdall way back in Illuminae. Because I was pissed at hell that they weren’t even helping Alexander, Copernicus and Hypatia.
#77 Trashtalk at its finest?
#78 Is their currency really pronounced as “ish”?
#79 Seriously, for me Hanna’s dad, the General, is cool.
#80 You can differentiate them all by their WhisperNET Diary and Appointments.
#81 Lmao what’s with this I Wanna Lick Ya (Lollipop) song? Uhmm.. I wanna hear it.
#83 That line means so much because I don’t think Hanna’s worth all that. You feel me?
#84 Ugh I knew it. Fortunately, Nikky’s not there. I guess I have to thank Hanna afterall.
#85 Haha buuuurnn.
#86 Darn Sammy.
#87 Really, Sam. Darn you. You, and Chief Grant himself, don’t know what his daughter is going through right now because of you. Darn.
#88 OF COURSE, IT IS HARD FOR CHIEF GRANT, SAM. OF COURSE.
#89 You have no right to wonder, Sam. Shut up.
#91 Do they deserve that?
#92 Oh my God don’t you have any conscience?
#93 Ugh I’m fuming.
#94 That scenario must be beautiful… Mesmerizing.
#95 Can you please not mention the words loyal, duty, commitment and perseverance, Sam? Because they don’t suit you.
#96 Oh damn you, Sam.
#97 Lucky Hanna is also not here. But her father and Jackson-
#98 Biceps bigger that your head? That’s exagerating.
#100 This is so sad. I am so sorry for the loss of these people.
#101 Damn you again, Sam. This is all your fault.
#102 OH where did Knopf or Amie and Jay got all these faces? WHY DIDN’T THEY ASK FOR ME? I WOULD GLADLY ACCEPT THEIR REQUEST TO PUT MY PHOTO HERE.
#103 Oh I’m taking it back. I forgot for a second that these are all from BeiTech and they are all murderers.
#104 But seriously tho, in the 4th book (because come on, I can’t just accept Obsidio is the last) can Amie and Jay also put my photo here and make me one of the characters? Eeeeppp! The idea is making me giddy.
#105 Rolf Moller kinda looks like Sherriff Keller from Riverdale. Like a younger version.
#107 Wish no harm your face, Falk.
#108 Oh God. Thank God you guys are safe.
#109 Srsly, this is why I love Illuminae Files trilogy. People are being hostage but I still have time to laugh because of the characters themselves.
#110 I can see a little of Kady Grant in Hanna Donnelley.
#111 Idk but is that just really a coincidence that Malikov’s cousin’s surname is Malikova?
#112 Ella Malikova is like Kady Grant. Love her now.
#113 Oh no, Hanna you can’t loose that palmpad.
#114 I’ve seen this scene a couple of times in books and movies.
#115 Three male and one female soldiers can’t even catch a girl teenager.
#116 I take it back. Videoguy is right. His job ain’t that cool at times like this you know.
#117 I feel terrible for the cows.
#118 Holy craaaaaaap….
#119 Poor videoguy. Is he the same from Illuminae? I remembered how the videoguy felt in Illuminae while transcripting surveilance videos as well. You’d think the job’s easy but nahhh.
#120 But anyway, Mr. Videoguy/Surveillance footage guy/ Transcriber guy, you have some sense of humour and I like reading your transcripts. Just saying. Hope it’ll make you feel better even if just for a bit.
#121 Ugh, oh Christ I think I’m going to vomit.
#122 Yuuuuucckkk. Oh God Mike what have you done?
#123 Oh boy, Mr. Videoguy. They are not paying you enough. I’m so sorry you have to witness that. I’m just reading the transcript and fvvvccck my it feels like there’s a blender in my stomach.
#124 Romeo no more, Kali. You ain’t calling no one.
#125 That blue ocean thing is funny. I mean, coming from you? Yeah?
#126 No, Nik. It’s not really your fault. It’s effing Sam’s.
#127 Imagine this as a movie. It could really be excellent only if the movie producers and director don’t ruin it.
#128 I think I understand why you were given that job Mr. Videoguy. Because you’re so good at that. Okay? You’re a good story teller or reporter or whatever.
#129 Hanna is also bad ass af.
#130 And she must look sexy. Fighting bloody wearing that jumpsuit.
#131 All thanks to her dad.
#132 OHMY such a cutie, Hanna!
#133 “Hurting she might be, but Hanna Donnelly was raised by a man who thought talking military tactics was a fun way to spend daddy-daughter time.” Can I get sadder because I have no dad? lol
#134 Seriously, this lollipop song played a big role in this book.
#135 Buurn, Mercury. Burn.
#136 Darn, Kali is a madwoman.
#138 DAMN I LOVE HANNA
#139 Oh stop making me giggle.
#140 Donnelly is so clever.
#141 Oh God, the genius side of Kady can be found in Ella Malilova and the courageous, bad ass side is on Donnelly.
#142 MALIKOVA AND DONNELLY ARE MY NEW FAVORITE GALS.
#143 Oh poor Ella.
#144 Ella doesn’t seem like 15 at all.
#145 Hahahaha ommmmgggggggg
#146 Oh my God he’s high!!!
#147 Holy crap
#148 He’s also gone…
#149 Just when I thought I couldn’t be more scared.
#150 Kady Grant really got it from his father, Chief Grant.
#151 Oh no, Jax. That’s where you’re wrong. She’s not in a Danae Matresco suit anymore. She has no jumpsuit on. No clothes on.
#152 OMG. WHAT THE HELL. WHAT IF HANNA CAUGHT THAT LITTLE EWY FOUR-MOUTHED CREATURE. AND NOW SHE’S SOULESS AF. THAT’S WHY SHE DREW THIS ON HER JOURNAL. AND THE BLOOD IS HERS. WHAT IF SHE’S LOOSING HER MIND BY THIS TIME SHE’S DRAWING THIS??? OMG WHAT IF I AM FREAKING RIGHT. DEMN. SO THIS MIGHT END WITH HANNA ALMOST DEAD?
#153 Damn why would she draw and write this thing.
#154 HOLY BLOODY
#155 This is worse than killing him. The Queen she is.
#156 Oh my, Babushka Nika is the Queen of all bad ass fem.
#157 Haha cute
#158 Lol let’s see once they also tried to kill you, Sam.
#159 AH! OKAY I SEE… WHY DID IT JUST COME INTO MY MIND RIGHT NOW? HANNA STILL CARRIES HER JOURNAL. AND SHE’S WOUNDED. SHE’S BLEEDING. SO THAT’S WHY THERE’S BLOOD STAIN IN HER JOURNAL. OH GOD WHY DID IT TOOK ME LIKE 30% OF THE BOOK BEFORE REALIZING THIS??? SMH.
#160 I love these quotes on pages 244 and 245 SO much. I need to put tabs.
#161 I don’t like his father either.
#162 Holy shit. This is triggering for someone who also just had her pet dog died.
#164 I really have a strong feeling I will not like how this will end. Oh God, Amie and Jay, please have mercy.
#165 OH! MY! GOD!!! AAAAAAAGGGHHHHH OH MY GOOOODDDDD
#166 OHMYGAD I’M ABOUT TO CRY
#167 You know what, I can’t take this job. I can’t be one of those persons investigating this case. I can’t just seat and read and study all these data, e-mails, schemantics, etc and NOT CRY. I can’t. Shit.
#168 Holy crap. There’s no escaping this!!
#169 Who’s Rapier? OH- Sammy.
#170 Calm blue ocean? Calm blue ocean? Haha w e i r d.
#171 OH MY! AIDAN!
#172 Lol Mr. Videoguy/transcriber don’t want to do this anymore? Aww.
#174 How am I supppsed to read this lol
#175 Damn, what happened????? Where are the others??
#177 I knew it. They’re all high. But where are the others?
#178 Yuck bro
#180 lol “Unsettling, no?” Unsettling, yes.
#181 Alpha is stong lmao
#182 13 to go.
#183 That’s too long.
#184 I guess this is Jax.
#185 Oh gosh, Falk. Falk you (pun ok?)
#186 I feel sorry for Hanna. I couldn’t even read this fast right now. How is she going to do it?
#187 If I’m Hanna, I’ll just turn myself in. I’m weakling like that.
#188 Poor Labrador.
#189 Tsk tsk tsk. I think I already know why Nik has an angel tattoo on his throat.
#191 Damn, Nik. Are you still the same person you were when you did that crime?
#192 Ohmygod I need a minute.
#193 Suddenly, everything make sense? “Dead men keep their secrets.” “Wrong place, wrong time.” Nik have said these before.
#194 Nik also talked about sunshine.
#195 HUH???!!?!?!?!? WHAT THE FVCKING HELL???????????
#197 DAMN YOU, JACKSON I HATE YOU I WANT TO CRY I HATE YOU
#198 YOU ARE SUCH A FOOL, JACKSON MERRICK!
#199 Eerrr… That’s so painful.
#200 Huh? I’m confused? Why did Falk call Merrick Samuel???
#201 You got me at “worth seeing” Mr Videoguy. I think it’s the first time you’ve said that about a footage? What’s so special with this?
#203 HAHA MY HANNA, SUCH A CLEVER GIRL. SHE DESERVES A ROUND OF APPLAUSE.
#204 What? They’re still alive? Bummer.
#205 YOU DON’T MESS WITH A BROKEN HEARTED GIRL. YOU DON’T.
#206 My heart is breaking along yours, Hanna.
#207 I believed that “a whole sky of different stars” too.
#208 Aww, bumblebee. I love you even more, Hanna. So much love for you, girl.
#209 The right word describing how I feel for BeiTech isn’t discovered yet. Hate is a 100% understatement.
#210 I know I’m gonna lose my mind for a while because of this book because that’s exactly what happened to me while reading Illuminae.
#211 I’m so sorry.
#212 Hanna girl is just as genius as Kady girl. Ok?
#213 But, really tho, while shit was happening to Alexander and Hypatia, Heimdal is also trying to survive its own shit. I thought in Illuminae that Kady will be arriving in a sanctuary or arms of rescuers. But nah. Heimdall got its own probs.
#214 Oh, she had.
#215 Oh, Nik.
#216 I really think this is all just because of the environment where Nik grew and was honed. If it wasn’t for HoK he’d be soft as a fluff.
#217 Uggh cringe-y.
#218 Yes, daddy Grant. Hanna could actually be your daughter also.
#219 Holyshit EEEEWWW. That illustration scared and shookedt the hell out of me.
#221 They are all going staight to death.
#222 lol Mercury
#223 Seriously tho, how did Amie and Jay knew these stuffs about computer such as these codes etc etc
#225 Books in the Illuminae Files are the only books I truly truly love despite all the scientific, mathematics, etc terms I couldn’t get.
#226 Holy craaaap it’s like watching a movie with 3D experience
#227 I loooove these illustrations. These are art. Illuminae, Gemina, and *surely* Obsidio are works of art.
#228 Stop asking who’s his mommy, Mercury. Will you?
#229 I have a feeling she’ll die.
#230 Omg. I’m really a-maaaaaa-zed how they can still flirt and joke at times like this. Luv u all pals.
#231 Ooohhhh Niiiiickk hugs and kisses.
#232 Aww, orphaned princess and brigand prince.
#233 Haha Aidan is bitter.
#234 Who could ever forget how Aidan broke his *nonexisting* heart by loving Kady.
#235 HOLY CRAP!! MOTHERFCKR NOT MY ELLA. SHE HAS NO JUMPSUIT ON, I GUESS? PLUS SHE DEFINTELY CAN’T PROTECT HERSELF PHYSICALLY. (EDITED a.k.a not included in #18 a.k.a. just my comment or note while reading this myself: This is where I was so wrong pals, right?)
#236 “The heart of lion in her chest.” aww big heart for u
#237 I know right???? I told you. She reminds me of Kady too. My lovely beauty smarty sexy Kady.
#238 “She is a Queen on this battlefield of ones and zeroes. And she is winning.” Hearts
#240 Idk but a person with a mouth like mine wouldn’t be able to resist herself from cursing while reading this book.
#241 Wow Aidan, is that an attempt on poetry?
#242 C’on Jackson, WHO ARE YOU to ask? So unbelievable.
#243 lol stop it, Jackson.
#244 That is so painful.
#245 I told you Kali is a madwoman.
#246 Talk less, smile more. Don’t let them know what you’re against or what you’re for.
#247 Oh damn, this is so sad.
#248 HOLYYYY CRAAAAAAAP. NO WAY. NOT YET. DAMN. MY NIK. SHT. NO.
#249 ooohhhh THAT’S MAH GIRL
#250 I love Hanna Donnelly I love Hanna Donnelly I love Hanna Donnelly I love Hanna Donnelly
#251 I’M CRYINH BRB
#252 I LOVE YOU NIKLAS MALIKOV. REMEMBER THAT.
#253 Huh??? What the hell?
#254 Omg why can’t I find these messages on Illuminae? I can actually remember reading this on Illuminae.
#255 Oh gosh. Going back to Illuminae makes me realize just how amazing the illustrations are on it.
#256 Uhmm I can’t find it. I’ll just move on, then.
#257 Damn this bridge has so many fvcking sad and painful memories.
#258 Aahh I love Syra Boll so much. Lol I thought she’s dead I forgot so much??? All I was thinking about was Kady and Ezra hehe.
#259 OH DARN. I MIIIISSSEEEEEED YOOOUUUU SOOOO MUUUCHH KADYYYY GRAAAAANT. SO.MUCH. LOVE. FOR YOU.
#261 Maybe someone got Nik’s palmpad?
#262 Aahhh I really missed how you talk genius Kady!!! Sending hugs and kissess 100x
#263 Eeeep! I MISSED YOU TOO EZRA MASON LOVE U TOO
#264 I CAN’T STOP GIGGLING OH GOD. YOU JUST CAME INTO THE VIEW EZRA AND I’M ALREADY LIKE THIS
#265 Right, Ezra. That was also what’s on my mind.
#266 Kady is too genius for you, you know. But we? We’re just on the same level of geniusness so maybe we’re better together ahihijihihijiavsguaahvaha
#267 Isaac Grant a.k.a father Grant just cursed y’all.
#268 YOU ARE SO FUCKING BRAVE HANNA DONNELY I HOPE YOU KNOW THAT
#269 Oh my Hannah. I am so sad for you.
#270 Haha yeah, Donnelly is just that type of girl.
#271 Come on, Hannah. I would have just shot them dead immediately after getting in.
#273 What is Doppler shift?
#274 Oh, maybe that’s the place Nik was talking about where he said something about rainbows when the wormhole opened.
#275 How do you pronounce Yggdrasil?
#276 What if they close the wormhole the moment Kennedy pass through it? Maybe it’ll kill them. Or if no, at least something will happen that would buy Hypatia some time.
#277 Ah no, there are no real people inside which is good, you know. Is my plan of closing the wormhole or getting it offline while they’re passing through really not feasible? Why?
#278 Oh! And that’s the reason why it just brushed off Mantis or Mercury’s (?) bad mouthing earlier. Because they were just AI.
#279 Damn, in these books of Illuminae Files, people say “RUN” like it’s a motto or a mantra.
#280 I can’t understand this illustration. Why are there 2 planets? I think this white “tear” is the wormhole, but where is the fleet Kennedy?
#281 DAMN! WHY ARE YOU SAYING “JUST A SIMPLE BOY” AGAIN? YOU MEAN NIK, RIGHT? BUT WHAT NOW? HE’S DEAD. DOES THIS MEAN WHEN THE WORMHOLE ACCIDENTALY OPENED EARLIER BY SOMETHING NIK HAD CAUSED (ALONG WITH THE OTHER THINHS), HE DID SOMETHING TO THE WORMHOLE? WITHOUT KNOWING?
#282 WELL, I GUESS HE DID.
#283 THAT’S WHY I LOVE THE BOY YOU KNOW?
#284 This illustration is like a disco ball, btw.
#285 I can actually hear a weird voice in my head while reading this line “JUST A SIMPLE BOY”
#286 OH MY. THANK GOD. I THOUGHT HANNA WAS ALSO COOKED.
#287 I HAVE GOOD FAITH THAT HYPATIA IS SAFE OR AT LEAST STILL WHOLE. AND PEOPLE THERE ARE STILL ALIVE.
#288 Chief Grant, please don’t loose hope. You’ll see Kady, okay? You will. Please concentrate and help. I’m rooting for you.
#289 You’ll stay alive, okay?
#290 I’m so proud of y’all.
#291 I’m just about to say I love you to both Kady and Ezra but then right after turning the page, they’re saying I love you to each other already. Can I just join the party?
#292 You WILL make it. Please… I know you will. I know.
#294 I WANT TO CRY
#295 EVERYTIME YOU TALK ABOUT STARS, EZRA MASON. EVERY TIME.
#296 Ugh just the thought kills me.
#297 Uughhhh I’m teary eyed already.
#298 Oh God I can’t understand a thing with these words.
#299 …. Huh?
#300 OHHH GEMINA. SO THIS IS THE REASON WHY THIS BOOK IS TITLED GEMINA.
#301 I really love the moments when you’re finally learning why a book’s title is like that.
#302 But tbh, I still can’t understand that much? These scientific words… oh gosh. I can’t comprehend a thing.
#303 What is that for?
#304 LMAO this is fvcking cute.
#305 AHH! So maybe that was what the Gemina thing was about? Kennedy is nowhere to be found now because it went through the “twin” wormhole?
#306 lol same, Ezra. I’m confused.
#307 I have to research about this Hyperspatial Quantum Theory and Hyperspatial bridges after reading this book.
#308 I suddenly remembered our own thesis. Oh Christ…
#309 I love how real these chats are? Like people are already replying because they don’t know the other one isn’t done and just still typing. You’ll just know that they were not done yet once you see how long their latest chat is.
#311 Oh gosh this is just confusing as motherfvcker.
#312 What is QASAR again? Also the o.r.a.c.l.e earlier. I couldn’t get these.
#313 Oh damn… It’s like space travel?
#314 Parallell worlds???
#315 I really don’t know but I’m guessing the “multiverse theory” has something to do with parallel worlds?
#316 So, I am right.
#317 lol Yuki
#318 So, you’re saying there’s another universe where I didn’t become a book blogger and am now staring at nothingness because there’s nothing else I could do? (EDITED a.k.a not included in #18 a.k.a. just my comment or note while reading this myself: Well, not that I really excel at this blogging thing, though.)
#319 Since the very beginning of all the beginnings a.k.a the day I’ve learned about this theory *which name I just learned now* I’ve always been fascinated and scared (not the right term but something almost close) by it. I mean, that means there’s another me right there in another universe making all the right choices in life I failed to do so here, you know?
#320 Oh gosh so in that another universe, Hanna died and not Nik. SO it’s fvcked up. The two universe where they’re just not made to be with each other until the end meet. OF ALL THE UNIVERSES OUT THERE?
#321 Another word to ask Mr. Google “hyperspace”
#322 lol because Kady is a genius and she probably didn’t have a hard time getting all these stuffs Boll is saying.
#323 Both Heimdall interact at Universe A. But is it also possible for Heimdall in Universe A be on Universe B and vice versa? Like crossing instead of meeting the Kerenza Waypoint in Universe A?
#324 Oh now there is a “Gemina field”. I will definitely search all these stuffs about Gemina in astrology once I got an internet connection.
#325 Two Heimdalls transmitting through two wormholes to one Kerenza Waypoint which is at Universe A. Right?
#326 What? They’re speaking through Universe B’s Heimdall? I thought they’re speaking through their own Heimdall? And that the fleet went to the other Hypatia.
#327 Nah. If they’re speaking to the other Heimdall, then the fleet should have gone straight now to wipe away the Hypatia on their universe. So in another universe, they’re all dead now.
#328 Oh my… so it leads to nowhere, not the waypoint. So Hypatia in Universe B is still also alive.
#329 BUT. WHAY IF PEOPLE FROM HYPATIA WENT THROUGHT THE WORMHOLE? IT WILL ALSO LEAD THEM NO WHERE.
#330 Damn. Nowhere is so scary.
#321 Wait- what about their own Heimdall?
#322 Motherfvcker I’m so confused. I thought I already got it.
#323 Aaahh.. No, I already get it.
#324 lol it had.
#325 Yes, just like Chief Grant said, the maintenance was so hard to do.
#326 Donnelley and Malikov’s tragedy. One of the most painful and sad tragedies in Science Fiction.
#327 I told you.
#328 Haha lol Nik I miss you.
#329 It’s 1:24 a.m. and I have a long day tomorrow lol even though I don’t want to I should stop reading and take a sleep.
#330 I just couldn’t admit it at first, but the moment Kady said she was also talking with Nik at the same time, I felt a ping of hope that he’s alive and Hanna and him will be together again.
#331 I love these fighter engineers.
#332 Oh gosh… The hope that they will get themselves out of reach of these goons and into safety is now gone…
#333 Screw you all, goons.
#334 What’s arterial spray?
#335 Oh, I love that line.
#336 lol and I AM afraid of what’s coming next.
#338 Damn. Nah. I think those are from Universe B.
#339 Books in the Illuminae Files trilogy actually makes me appreciate IT, engineers and computer nerds more.
#340 I love you both Syra Boll and Kady Grant and seeing you both talking to each other makes me so happy.
#341 lol AIDAN
#342 I hate myself. Why did I suddenly forgot all the things Aidan have done??? What is wrong with me…
#343 Damn it, Aidan.
#344 I remember hating and loving AIDAN in Illuminae but like I can’t feel them intensely anymore. And I’m just happy that Kady still have it because I knew even at the end of Illuminae that AIDAN will help them here on Gemina.
#345 Oh yes, the datapad!
#346 I WANT TO READ SYRA BOLL’S DISSERTATION SO BAD!
#347 Waaah so many things to search about, so many new things to learn.
#348 Pretty good logic.
#349 I always apply that decision theory though.
#351 HOLY CRAP. SO THAT’S WHERE THE TAGLINE CAME FROM. “What do you believe, Syra?”
#352 Well, I believe they should let you help, AIDAN.
#353 WE DON’T HAVE A MINUTE TO SPARE, BEN GARVER.
#354 You know what? **** *** Ben Garvar.
#355 Oh God, my heart, it’s aching.
#357 Oh gosh I can’t understand. Why twice?
#359 Oh, that’s it!
#360 HOLY CRAP!!!!! THE TWO NIK TRADE PLACES?!
#361 TELL ME FUCKING YES DAMN BECAUSE THAT WOULD MEAN NIK IN UNIVERSE B IS ACTUALLY FROM UNIVERSE A. SO UNIVERSE B NIK WAS THE ONE WHO DIED AS WELL AS THE UNIVERSE B HANNA. IT’S JUST THAT NIK FROM B DIED AT UNIVERSE A NOT ON B LIKE HANNA. AND THAT ALSO MEANS UNIVERSE A HANNA AND NIK ARE ALIVE AND UNIVERSE B NIK AND HANNA ARE DEAD. SO THE TRAGEDY IS AT UNIVERSE B NOT A.
#362 OMG YES, YES, I AM RIGHT. YES.
#363 AH! OMG. THAT’S WHY HE SAID HE LOST THE CORSAGE THEN IT TURNED OUT, HE STILL HAS IT BECAUSE IN UNVERSE B, HE DIDN’T LOSE IT!
#365 Did I understand it right or….
#366 OH! MY! GOD! I’M! SWOONING! PLEASE SAY HELLO TOO TO NIK FOR ME, AIDAN.
#368 GOOD LUCK, HANNA. KISSES.
#370 What about Hanna, tho? What will happen to her if she acompanied Nik (dead) to switch with Nik (alive)?
#371 Wait… What?
#372 Yes… everything pales in comparison to seeing him, AIDAN. Everything.
#373 These two pages that parallel to one another is so freaking precious.
#374 I wonder what Nik (from Universe A but now in B) did with Hanna’s body? Where did he leave it?
#375 Oh! I see. I’m so stupid. Yes, he’s also with her dead body.
#376 FVCK IT I WANT TO SCREEEEAAAAMMM
#377 I WANT TO CRY MY HEART
#378 This scene reminds me of Your Name.
#380 There is no lollipop song in Universe B’s elevators?
#381 Why is Nik trying to talk to Ella? Is Ella in Universe B alive?
#382 Oh yes. I guess. If she’s dead here she’s definitely alive there.
#384 Oh yeah, I thought they don’t have the lollipop song.
#385 She feels all of those, AIDAN.
#386 She IS strong. Definitely is. Unquestionably is.
#387 The editor or proofreader or whoever it is forgot to make the word “ANGER” bold.
#389 As far as I can remember, I think AIDAN said the same thing about Kady and Ella?
#390 HOLY CRAP! DAMN SENSEI.
#391 What? I’m confused… is that Hannah? OH GOD
#392 HOLY… FREAKING…. CRAP. PLEASE DON’T TELL ME NIK WILL BE ALIVE IN UNIVERSE B THIS TIME THEN HANNA WILL BE DEAD AGAIN IN UNIVERSE A. DAMN THIS IS BULLSHIT. STOOOOOOP. I CAN’T.
#393 Omg pls don’t crash this little hope I have left.
#394 Damn it. It’s almost as if they’re in the same place.
#395 ALL HELL BREAK LOOSE
#397 Of course, Falk the fvcker is still alive. He’s been MIA for long. Hate him so much.
#398 What? Why do you have to find Ella? How about the plan? That’s not in the plan, Nik!
#399 YOU’RE A FVCKING A**HOLE, FALK!
#400 OH MY GOD! WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ELLA?????? OHMY
#401 Please don’t tell me she’ll die in Universe A now! Like for real because I thought she was already dead. Oh gosh this is driving me nuts.
#402 I want to cry because of happiness but at the same time I’m also terrified and stressed and sad and nervous but also numb at the same time.
#403 Holy crap. Ella. Holy crap. My heart’s aching. I’m in tears. Noooooooo.
#404 HOLY CRAP???????????????????¿???????????
#405 Universe B is the home of their tragedy. But not Universe A. Hopefully.
#407 OH NO. DO NOT TELL ME. THIS IS STILL NOT THE ENDING I WAS HOPING FOR. IT WAS SO CLOSE. SO DAMN CLOSE TO THAT.
#408 PLEASE DO NOT TELL ME THIS IS STILL NOT A HAPPY ENDING FOR MALIKOV AND DONNELLY, NOT THE KIND OF HAPPY FOR ME.
#410 I also don’t want to be selfish. Hanna, Nik and Ella are so tired…. They can rest now…… Yeah, they can.
#411 Hehe Ella is SO cute.
#413 ELLA MALIKOVA DOES NOT DESERVE THAT!!!!!
#414 Did Jackson really shot her? It wasn’t that clear to me. What shot? Where did that shot come from?
#415 GO TO HELL JACKSON.
#416 FVCK YOU JACKSON.
#417 I HATE ALL THE THINGS THAT JUST HAPPENED TO THEM. I HATE THEM. I SO HATE THEM.
#418 I WAS JUST ABOUT TO GIVE THIS 10 OUT OF 5 STARS. BUT NOW… I COULDN’T BRING MYSELF TO DO SO. I JUST HATE THE ENDING SO MUCH. I HATE IT SO MUCH.
#419 ROT TO HELL JACKSON.
#420 NO, FVCKING JACKSON. YOUR FATHER WILL NEVER BE PROUD. EVIL.
#421 HOLY CRAP, HANNAH. MY SOUL ALMOST LEFT MY BODY. YOU’RE ALIVE OH MY GOD, HANNAH. MY FEM. YOU’RE ALIVE.
#422 ME, HANNAH! I’M SURPRISED. BUT I FVCKING LOVE THIS SURPRISE. I WOULD HAVE HUGGED YOU SO TIGHT IF I WAS THERE. FEM.
#423 I DON’T KNOW IF IT IS STILL POSSIBLE TO MAKE THE “O” MY MOUTH MADE THE MOMENT I’VE READ THIS BIG SURPRISE BIGGER. I CAN FINALLY BREATHE. BUT OHGOSH. I WAS ALSO TRICKED. YOU GUYS!! I ALMOST CAN’T BELIEVE IT.
#424 Can someone please teach me how to play poker? lol
#425 I want to cry. I still have few pages left. But I am so exhausted. Physically and mentally, but most specially, emotionally.
#426 Aaaahhh… That’s why I had a strange feeling that Jackson sounds so heartless in that report. I remembered he was still hesitating about stuffs earlier. He doesn’t really want to kill people in the first place.
#427 Damn it, Jackson. I think I might just forgive you…
#428 My heart hurts.
#429 Oh my God. I didn’t except the scene that will bring the most tears to my eyes is this scene where Jackson is sacrificing himself and Hannah’s leaving him. Damn. I can’t stop the tears from coming.
#430 Rest in peace, Jackson.
#431 A WHOLE SKY OF DIFFERENT STARS… I THINK I’M JUST GOING TO HAVE A HEART ATTACK.
#433 YES! I freaking want to know how it ends. But for now, I am so exhausted. My heart is so tired, but I am so happy Amie and Jay didn’t fail to give me the kind of ending I was expecting from them. And I just want to say I love you all. But I’ll rest for a while. Just like what I did with you (after Illuminae, I waited for months to read Gemina), I’ll do the same with Obsidio (okay, ONLY if I controlled myself but tbh, I’m just so tired I want to rest but I also want to know more and everything of course so I MIGHT be unable to control myself).
#435 So much love. Just like what Jackson did, I’m also giving you a whole sky of stars.
Extra thought a.k.a thoughts hours/days after reading the book:
#436 Yes, I can actually remember now. I knew “AIDAN” is supposed to be an acronym because that’s what it called as an AI. I just chose to refer to it as Aidan, a name, rather than AIDAN, an acronym.
About Gemina by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff
Series: The Illuminae Files, #2
Author: Amie Kauffman, Jay Kristoff
Publication date: October 18th 2016
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf Books for Young Readers
Genre: Young Adult Science Fiction
Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna’s social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed.
The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout bestseller Illuminaecontinues on board the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault.
Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy’s most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.
When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station’s wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands.
But relax. They’ve totally got this. They hope.
