Hmm...fifteen people have read the story and only one word as comment...It either really sucked, really spun things off to a different dimension, or people are stunned at the literary brilliance of the piece and how it ties everything together. ;-) I'm leaning towards one of the first two...


It was...different...good, but unexpected. I’ll have to read it again, as I didn’t get anywhere near the number of spoilers that you indicated were there (it would help if I remembered the old names of the "Gods", the only name that really jumped out was that 'van & car' guy at the end :P ). It also ends rather abruptly and leaves you going...huh, where’s the rest?

That said, the story its self was a good read. :wink:

I may have to go back & re-read LadyH and write down all the names (God Name = Original Name) as I go to get a better understanding of it, I haven't really paid much attention to those other names. :oops:

It's the first chapter, so more will be coming, including how the "gods" got their names.

For me, the biggest spoiler is when it is and what certain places that have been seen in the story really are.

Ok Kurt I'll bite. First it was well written as always, second I now am rereading the whole story looking for other things I missed. You don't have to worry, I have it on a higher authority (Sister's Margaret and Judith), its good, the sisters are doing what I'm doing, rereading the story. They also said thank you, btw, I like the timeframe of this prequel, sister Judith pointed a couple of things I missed.

This made my night. :-) I'm leaving in the morning to travel down to Greenville, SC, for a trauma medicine class on Saturday, so I wanted to get this up so you'd all have something to gnaw on.

When I saw the last ep of BSG, I was of two minds. First, I didn't like it because it really gave no connection between them and us, other than mitochondrial Eve. That's a lot of time to be living with oral history, if that, to carry forward some of the concepts and legends to the present. Had they arrived here say just after the last ice age, I think it would have been much more agreeable. Somehow, I picture Otzi the iceman being one of the survivors.

On the other hand, I liked it because it was unique. But...not enough to incorporate it into Lady H. Who knows, maybe it happened and this is just all happening again?

That said, I really wanted to explore who "the gods" were, and if you go back and read some of their exclamation, you'll notice that they don't say "gods damn"... Another thing that I remember anecdotally (I haven't really gone back and sifted through the episodes and Caprica to prove or disprove this) is that the ethnicities shown in the show were overwhelmingly skewed to European (and by extension, Latino) actors with few Asian or Africans. When you saw one pop up, you knew that they were important to the plot. So I wanted to explore why this was...and I think you'll find the reason quite horrifying...

Anyway, time for me to think about shutting down for the night.

Yeah, I got that bit, it also didn't make sense considering the nBSG ending, but you cleared that up in your next post.

Or maybe the 'Rag, Tag Fleet' somewhere along the way got sucked into a time warp and thrown back to the beginning and became their own ancestors. :lol:

The supplement so far creates more questions than answers at this point. Please post more. It is a good read.

Update FYI...

My plans are to finish the chapter next week so it may be posted before New Year's. Thanks to school and a general malaise I haven't been able to write and what I have forced myself to write hasn't been the best. However, a bit of recoil therapy at the Church of the Brass Rainbow (all hail Saints Gaston, John Moses, Eugene, and Mikhail!) today chased away the blahs.

Yes...I giggled like an anime girl when I realized just how quiet my suppressed bolt action .300 Blackout was shooting subsonics...I believe the term is "gnat's fart quiet"... I logged the whole event as "field research" for future chapters...

Oh! Yes...Now that some of my suppressors are out of NFA jail, I'll be able to post accurate pictures of what the Colonial M-22/23 looks like. Look for pics in the next few days...

Yes, littering the countryside with spent shell casings is quite therapeutic.

I'm coming off a case of the holiday blahs. I didn't think it would hit me this hard this year, but some old friends of my Mom's contacted me and sort of ripped the scab off.

That said, I am about eight pages into the chapter and will be working on it this week.

I can understand, that, I lost my oldest friend on the 26th of December, sometimes it just too damn hard to get restarted. I'll let the ladies know, you do know candles are in your future.

Thanks! The holiday season has been a difficult one ever since 1984, but each year gets a little better.

I have some stuff, but it isn't polished for prime time. One thing it will explain is how the "gods" got their names...
