For example, Jake is using private thought-speak to talk to only Cassie and Marco, excluding Ax, Tobias and Rachel who are also present.

When Cassie "hears" the thought-speak, does she automatically know that it was also "heard" by Marco but not the others?

  • I am certain that there are examples of individuals thoughtspeaking simultaneously to a seen enemy and an unseen ally without tipping the enemy off, but I'm drawing a blank at the moment. All of the examples I've looked up so far apparently involved public thoughtspeech, even though it almost never makes sense to use that mode. – Ketura Sep 4 '16 at 4:48

    @Ketura Yeah. Visser Three tends to use public thought-speech, even when it's extremely unstrategic. – Revetahw says Reinstate Monica Sep 4 '16 at 4:50
  • Not even just him. I blitzed #38 a moment ago and Arbat somehow dramatically answers a question Aximili makes to Estrid, while interrogating her on her illegal actions, no less. Only (in-universe) explanation is that Ax was in public mode for some godforsaken reason. – Ketura Sep 4 '16 at 4:56
  • @Ketura Which page? – Revetahw says Reinstate Monica Sep 4 '16 at 4:58
