I hope I answered all your questions with Erin being green. If not...watch an episode of Star Trek involving a teleporter mishap. There's probably a couple of them in Voyager. (Great series, but they overused some of the plot devices.)

For the time vortex, watch Doctor Who.

Seamus could fix all this by just having a device that travels with the time traveler rather than sending them through the vortex, but then we have the trouble of hiding said machine...and American dragons don't have police phone boxes.

Oh, and I hope Rachel managed to answer this question. I wasn't sure about it. (I tend to correct some grammar when making APRs because I realize that some of my readers have English as their second language, which is perfectly fine. I only mention this because I am sometimes unclear on the intent in the question.)

I thought Erin's blue...ness was a recessive gene, not a mutation?

And then why didn't it fix her nose/snout/muzzle?

And I think if it did change her genetic code, the blue that was there would still remain, but work its way out over the course of however long it takes for dragons shed. Dragons shed, right?

Sorry, I'm being pedantic.

Well, they could've been wrong about it being a recessive gene.

As for working it out over time, I figured the teleporter would reconstruct her as the new genetic code rather than letting her scales sort it out.

The snout shape was inherited from Sam.

Or are you talking about the talon scratches on the top of her head? I wouldn't think a teleporter would repair wounds.

I'm talking about the wounds.

So it alters her genetic code, but doesn't fix her scratches? That seems... odd.

(Although the scale-working-out thing makes perfect sense now, thank you.)

I'm not sure. I only kept them around so Sam would notice them and make the correlation between Erin and "Natasha."

SOME minor imperfections.

It's like a big tunnel of wibbly wobbly, dragony-wagony stuff. Except without so many wagons.
By the way, you spelled Beatrix as Beartrix in the APR question, and Doc Croc's beard-tie-thingy changes from green to blue between panels 2 and 3.

Ah, thanks. I fixed both issues.

the teleporter would help with traveling between cities without being seen, at least.

If Beatrix is supposed to be as tall/taller than Sam as a pre-teen, and Erin is (apparently) still growing pretty quickly - who would be taller as an adult?

Have we even seen another dragon taller than Erin yet? What's the world record? :P

Guessing your asking Rachel this? I'll save it as a question for her if so. (Also, would you like a name associated with the question?)
