Alex here managed to keep the weight off through college as his friends got fat, however when he hit his late 20s he relaxed a bit and slowly the needle on the scale itched upwards, going through husky now to chubby

Meenah==> Be Ill


It had been four days. Four FUCKING days and she was still down with illness. Her gills dried and shriveled, fins withered. Her eyes retained a permanently glassy look and any tears or nostril-fluid she had had crusted around said orifices. Her scales itched and stung like hell, and her throat was so dry and tongue so swollen that speaking was a challenge.
She had come down with Dry Days. Not only that, but to top it off, she had the filthy human caring for her.

The Signs as Mordin Solus quotes
  • Aries: Later, better. Think I’ve cured Joker’s condition. Simple treatment would… No, no, no, no. Would cause liver failure. Nevermind. Start from scratch.
  • Taurus: Bit of a cloaca, though. Loved his speeches. Hold the line! Personally prefer to get job done and go home.
  • Gemini: Perhaps later. Trying to determine how scale-itch got onto Normandy. Sexually-transmitted disease. Only carried by varren. Implications unpleasant.
  • Cancer: Ah, puberty ritual. Common among species with hormone-driven reproductive urges.
  • Leo: Some other time. About to test new bio-weapon. Not on us, of course. Didn’t think I had to specify, but Joker got nervous.
  • Virgo: Might go somewhere sunny. Sit on beach, look at ocean, collect seashells.
  • Libra: Females were obviously dying. Barbaric experiments. Maelon’s fault. My responsibility to fix. Need to save them. No more… No more dead.
  • Scorpio: Aware that you come by a great deal. Have had other species become attracted to me before. Awkward. Not interested.
  • Sagittarius: Alloy of EDI’s body not like organic tissue. Could cause unintentional damage. Recommend pillows, cushions, possibly gel packs.
  • Capricorn: Life is a negotiation. We all want. We all give to get what we want.
  • Aquarius: Flammable! Or inflammable! Forget which! Doesn’t matter!
  • Pisces: Would have liked to run tests on the seashells.
