Two new features upcoming

I haven’t gotten around to final review or posting yet, but there will be two new updates to the OSABC line up in the next week or so.

First up is due to a request from AlsoKnownAsMatt, the ANN Media Archive. This will be mostly story-based interviews (as opposed to Westerlund style, text only transcripts) with Emily Wong and various people in the story as it moves along. The first interview will be that of Emily and Shepard when Shep announces her marriage to Doctor T’Soni. The second will most likely be Wong’s interview with Liara in the immediate aftermath of Shepard’s death.

The other new feature will be the STG Files : Benezia Incident, a pack of STG related stuff — profiles on OC’s and modified minor canon characters, STG backstory and investigations into Saren and Benezia, and some ideas of what Benezia and Saren were up to prior to ME1. Like the Cerberus Files, the STG Files is told from an in-universe perspective, but the writers are not all terrorist racist nutjobs, so it’s far more unbiased than a Season of Sorrows Unending.

If you guys and gals who read this have any more ideas, comment and let me know.

So, a wiki

If you have not noticed, there is now a (very new and crappy) wiki on the site.

The purpose of the wiki is three fold:

  1.  To provide a place for me to store notes and develop backstory and technology that I cannot shoehorn into an existing story but I require to build on. Some of the stuff is boring, other pieces just don’t need a place in the actual storyline and don’t fit in the documents.
  2.  A place where a few other people can help me develop ideas and extensions for the story — in particular, my beta, Liethr, my co-author Progman, my primary feedback reader Michael1110 and the three or four readers I like to gank ideas from (AlexN7, NonSolus, RED78910, metaladdict, NarwhalWarlord, and Lay Down Hunter mostly)
  3.  A place where I can store notes without the worry of losing all my goddamned work, which has happened more than once.  I mean, seriously, what the fuck is the point of a RAID if both segments fail at the same fucking time?

Anyway. I doubt I will spend much time on it — ten minutes here and there at work every day adds up though. I can’t really get any writing done at work but I can build little bits of lore and backstory.

Working on the Naruto stuff now, to give my brain a rest.  I’ll probably have another chapter of ATTWN to the betas by this weekend, and maybe more of No Single Raindrop as well. I MAY (no promises) get done with the research on batarian history this weekend, depends.

Kickass Art from theLivingShadow

Finally got more art moving through the pipeline.

The first set is from TheLivingShadow, who will be doing a series of panels covering Systems Alliance uniforms and armor. Leading off with the SA’s enlisted / junior / senior uniform distribution.

From left to right, that’s a corporal, a Lieutenant, and an Admiral of the Red.

Again, if you plan on ever comissioning any kind of artwork, check him (and Nikita and Erin) out.

Delays in “And Then There Were None”

Since some of you have been asking …right now, the next chapter is still in review by my co-author.

Nothing in ATTWN goes out until he has a chance to tell me why it sucks. So far, nine times out of ten the shitfuckery I had written before was nothing compared to how good it was after his input.

I will be updating the Cerberus Files : Aliens, the Cerberus Files : Humanity and maybe Lions and Blue and Silver later on today or definitely by Tuesday. Right now, ETA on the next chapter of ATTWN is Tuesday – Wednesday — Progman has a lot of shit on his plate more important than fanfiction.

 

New Content to Older Works

I’ll be doing the following:

  • Slowly re-writing several chapters to provide more details in OSABC including “Wrex”, “Liara”, and “Cole”.
  • A series of interviews and short stories in the Biotic Encyclopedia with various biotics from various races
  • Cleaning up “The Best Father” a bit, to make it easier to read.
  • Going over some unclear things in the Cerberus Files: Aliens in regards to asari.

This won’t all get done at once or even quickly, but it will be happening as I find the time and energy to do it.
