    This was a roleplay story related to a SMAX DG.  I doubt I'll ever finish it with the DG long over.  Pity; the two chapters I wrote were going well.

  • Bumped for Jarl's attention - the story linked above is one I did about a Unity janitor.  I think maybe Carl and Vasilly would get along.

  • Vazheli and him would probably get along. Probably not in the way Alan would ... get along with him but you know what I mean.

    Funny how Carl is called Comrade.. the People Republic of Australia. Communist Miner revolt?  ;lol

  • I never thought the Australia thing through, but the coincidence of that being in there with my Unity janitor is something else, isn't it?

  • ...You know, it's a pity that this story was designed to bounce off other stories that ended up not happening.  The two chapters I got done still strike me as VERY good.

    I think I should see if I can put heads together with Mart and Vishniac and come up with some sort of end to work towards - that would give me enough to keep going...

  • ...I do know that my long-term intent was to have Carl end up with the Morganites -the player faction in the DG- and be in the background of whatever happened in the associated fictions -and maybe the game events; I dunno- sweeping floors or whatever modest, needed task, and having his own quiet, unassuming story.  There was to be a plot thread for at least a while, about him silently obsessing over Marifaa (who, alas, only has to have "relief" once in a very long while...)  No idea about eventually getting them together, though no reason not to, way down the road - I wanted to explore the unrequited longing thing, for sure, for a good while.  No reason not to now, but it's a plot thread, not the whole story.

    No reason to put Carl with the Morganites, now - but no reason not, either.  That might be a window into working in some timely political satire, though I'm not sure I have the stomach for it...

  • Ha.  I've never mentioned but should have, that I'm "Buster's Uncle" at WPC where the demogame took place and the two chapters of They Also Serve were written - and there were aspects of my own personality I was writing, and I have broad shoulders and am the janitor on the good ship AC2, but this was written before AC2 and I'm hardly quiet and affable, whatever appearance of that last I manage to fake well online - and to the point, "Buncle" was substantially less obvious a self-insert surname before I contracted Buster's Uncle on a whim for a username when I first joined sisko's side-project forum.  I'm not stupid, y'know.  Thanks.
