Hi all, I've been away since the 14th of December in sunny Cairns, my aunt & cousin live inland in Mareeba, so I spent X-Mas with them, then down to the beach in Cairns. :D

As for the story.

I've almost stopped reading it a couple of times, not because it's bad, far from it, rather it's the length of time between chapters that's the problem. At a rate of 1 chapter per year we'll all be dead of old age before it's finished. But that said, every time a new chapter gets posted I feel the NEED to read it. :shock:

And the way the last couple have been/will be posted so quickly is fanBLOODYtastic! :mrgreen:

This time gap between chapters is another possible reason why people aren't commenting, they simply don't know a new chapter is out.

I do hope you keep the story coming, as much as the year long waits frustrates the hell out of me, the story as a whole is fantastic! :wink:

“What’s that?” Cronus asked. “This is going to be a learning process for all of us, so we’ll have a lot of questions.”

“It’s a sign of respect…like how humans shake hands,” Cerdic offered and did the same.

“We’re baring our neck…giving you the opportunity to end us should you want.”

“First thing…no more of that,” Cronus sighed. “We’re going to work together; I’m not going to rip out your throat. Ok?” He offered his hand.


Hummm...who knew Cronus could be something other than a dick! :twisted:

Cairns? Cool! I never knew it existed until I got hooked on Sea Patrol that was shot there. In a different world, I would have grown up on the Gold Coast...after the war, my dad and a buddy had a chance to buy a cement plant there that had become surplus. Dad always had a knack of knowing what places were going to be profitable/expand/etc., but decided to return to the States where his fiance was waiting...and then quickly realized that it wasn't going to go anywhere because she wouldn't leave the west coast and he wanted to return to the east.

Actually...based on my Little, Brown Handbook of Grammar, it's gramatically correct since it's listing the people he was looking at: two foreigners, Benton, and Cazaux. An argument could be made (and the book was a little ambiguous on this, that the comma after Cazaux is extraneous, but since I used the Oxford comma (after Benton), it's ok. That said, I can see how there may be some confusion. :mrgreen:

Last year wasn't a good year for a lot of reasons and was perhaps the worst year of my life, and that isn't exaggerating. Let's just say that I was walking a very dark path that thankfully I got off of.

Like Cronus said, “I’ll admit that I’ve been a bastard in the past, sometimes for good reason and sometimes just because I felt like it, but that was then, this is now." He knows he was an asshole and embraces it! ;-)

32 full pages are complete. At this rate, I may have it finished Saturday, most certainly by Sunday. There are a couple areas that I think I want to re-write, so that will add a little time during editing. I hope you all enjoy it!

When you see who is in the next vignette, you might wonder what sort of problems their presence might cause...

Overall, I'm pretty pleased with how things developed; it's a good example of "second chances"...

Oh...And Jessica Raynes has a cameo...

Since I have no interest watching barely literate thugs play with a ball, I spent the afternoon and evening working on Vignette 11...and finished it. I'm going to read it tonight and begin the edit process tomorrow.

Actually Kurt, a good number of those individuals are quite literate and will probably live quiet and productive lives when they are done play football.

The ones I’ve met...not really. I’m sure there are some, but again, not the ones I’ve met/ encountered over the past 25 years or so.

The edit and re-write is largely complete. There are some other edges I want to polish up, but I would suspect that Storming Heaven will be posted on Wednesday.

Storming Heaven is edited, the re-writes are done, and it's been formatted. However...I'm going to read it one more time this evening and will post it Wednesday.

Because the following has spoilers for those who haven't read it yet, I've colored the text to match the background & thus hide it, highlight the quoted area to see it!

Quote:
Deep Space, Earth Union battlestar Selene

“Are you comfortable with your decision?” Major Dr. Priscilla Ingram asked one of the other two people seated around the table.

“Yes, I am,” Allegra Marquette smiled and seemed to relax. “I’ve given it a lot of thought; if there are other survivors, there’s a good chance that they have created a new government that allows them to look forward. Were I to assert that I was the lawful president and given the nature of what happened and the immediate entry into a State of Emergency I constitutionally have that right, it would cause friction and more importantly, it would force them to look backwards.

“That isn’t our path, we need to look forward,” Marquette stated. “Besides, I allowed my career and political ambitions deprive me of being a mother the first time around, I’m not going to let that happen again…I’m not going to deprive Tristan of another mother.”


Well that answers the question that was screaming at me since she survived the attack. How will the other one take her arrival? :lol:

The master documents have been updated with Vignette 11 and Vignette 10's spacing has been fixed.

Just found the update. Damn dude, 2 Presidents? I have to add new names to the spreadsheet, just keep up with who's who.
I let you know some feed back after I re-read the chapter.
I like what I've read so far and won't see the Ladies till sunday.
