The people of Ladidah are throwing a fit over the destroyed wedding and the wedding planners are weeping. Liz's own family is hounding her about her "unlady-like" behavior even as the vorax raiders, the survivors that is, are being dragged off to incarceration and the Brutes are taking the raider ships to turn them in for the credit. Liz decides to give a smackdown, verbally speaking, to them all that 'rich and powerful' is not just for MEN, and 'being able to fight like a fiend', doesn't mean they have to be male, either. And she makes sure her husband is able to give them a few pieces of his mind as well.
Kudge thought he'd been in love before the wedding. The snobby gits from Ladidah were having conniptions now that the disaster was over, because now their big showy ceremony was ruined. It was the worst thing to ever happen in their glitteringly extravagant lives.
"At least y'all have lives to complain about it in," he rumbled, ushering a captive Vorax into a stasis pod.
That was when the mother-of-the-bride started going off on a long, complicated rant about how the chefs were trained in the most advanced culinary techniques, and had labored for days to create the bridal feast, how her dress was worth years and some Brute had got Vorax goo on it. She could never wear it again! Not that she actually planned to wear it again, but that wasn't the point. Some paparazzo could have snapped her in a state of dishevelment.
