Just and FYI...I think that this chapter is going to largely focus only on the attack on the Colonies unless I can really get my writing speed up and finish the text by about the 19th or 20th.

Yup. Not really the uplifting chapter that I wanted to release for the Christmas season, but sometimes, as my mathematical formula t-shirt declares, violence is the answer.

As a side note...when I was a wee lad back in the days when all special effects were practical and done with real things and not bits and bytes, I thought that by the time I was an adult that we'd have a pill for everything...need to learn how to drive a race car like Mario Andretti? Take a pill. Need to learn emergency brain surgery (and you didn't stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night)? Take a pill. Yes, in my view of the future, knowledge came in pill form. Right now, after spending the last two hours writing SQL queries for commands that the professor never went over and pointedly ignored. To use a term once written by the late, great A. Bertram Chandler in "The Far Traveller"..."karch!"

Equal thought: All the Kraken class gunships are named Kraken but depending on which one, the crew put different emphasiso on it.

KrA-ken, Kray-ken Krah-ken, kra-Keen, kra-Kon, etc

That would be an interesting way of softly determining authenticity.

it's the subtle differences, and the Devil is in the details, after all.

It is...

I'm slowly working on the next chapter, a couple pages a day. There are some new characters, some old characters, and a wickedly trollish character (though she has good reason).

So I wrote the next two scenes in the chapter and spent the next day (today) second guessing myself on whether they worked/fit or felt right. I re-read them a few moments ago and realized that sometimes I'm my own worst critic.

Given the subject matter, this is going to be a tough chapter. Tougher than I originally thought.

We prepare our tissues for our tears and our whiskey for the warriors. Ready for when the watch turns and new must stand beside the old on a blue line stained red.

Another section has been completed. I'm not sure how long this chapter is going to be as there are a number of threads to deal with, but it's coming along.

Here's a teaser from the next chapter...

The woods were dark, and the sounds of the night were comforting as Justinian Graucus led his horse along the overgrown trail. His long black cloak trimmed with crimson hung off his shoulders and his broad brimmed buckle banded hat kept the questing branches from his face. Up ahead was the Inn Of The Lonely Traveler, where he was going to meet the other members of his group, returned to the Grimmwood after several long weeks away.

Ahead, dim through the brush, Graucus saw the welcoming yellow light that spilled out from the inn’s windows. He was almost there and would be glad to see his companions again. After defeating Lord Bileheart, they had gone their separate ways to research the items they had found and the dispose of the foul tomes they had confiscated. Disposing of the books had been his chore, and one that he hadn’t wanted but understood he was the most qualified to perform. He was no ordinary traveling sell-sword, that much was clear from the crimson trim on his cloak and the crimson sash he wore about his waist.

Justinian Graucus was a witch hunter, skilled in both the martial and magical arts, he was truly a witch hunter; a witch who hunted other witches that sought to harm the Empire or its citizens.

Some of Sebastian's writing?

Or Serpent and his team, stuck together, and playing some version of D&D

Here's another teaser...

“I have it, Charles,” Searlait said and barely flinched when a Cylon mortar round landed less than fifty meters from their position. “And I better do it quick!”

“Thanks!” Charles said and made his way to where his team’s senior NCO was hunkered down with a rifle squad. “Ed, we’re going to get some artillery in a few moments. I need you to gather the boys and at least a squad and get them ready. As soon as we have rounds on target, we’re going to take their position.”

“Give the word, Charger, we’ll be ready,” Gunnery Sergeant Edward Salagiida replied.

“Good man,” Charles told him and moved to the end of the wall and took out his binoculars. What had once been a small village that supported the large family owned farm was now nothing more than burned out ruins. Here and there he could see a moving red eye through the dust or in the darkness of the ruins, sure sign that the Cylons were almost at arm’s reach. He spent several moments studying the terrain and then ducked back behind the heavy stone wall and took out his map.
