Ahhhh! Back to a bit of human interaction. The explosions are pretty, but it's the humans who make the story. :)

Re: CD Wiki

Thank you, Charles! That's really great (for the future, when I aspire to something more complex than typo edits!)

And thanks Lokekar Kra and Charles, both, for the leads on the history/politics backstory -- I'm looking forward to getting my head around it all. :D

Re: CD Wiki

I'm out of my depth here -- about how to navigate around the wiki, let alone edit it. (though who knows... one day... ) Can I ask the Knowledgable a question?: Where would I find information on the politics/history behind the war? ****** Hey!! Just actually did an edit -- but only to clean up a triv...

Re: Chap 10, page ~20, character behaviour

I don't think "absolute bastards" is exactly right -- presumably Dan didn't intend for the shooting to end in amputation. But I think they're all being smugly exclusionary about Hal -- how come they care so much for ex-crew-member Sarah, but ex-crew-member Hal is dismissed completely? Hal is Not The...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

it's apparently very expensive" As indicated above -- I don't think this is a problem forWhisper (or was , anyway). There seems to have been bulk money available for her care for years, and I can't believe that if she had wanted to look "normal" she couldn't have organised it. I think she is defian...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

"chaste" doesn't mean "never had sex" - it means not having sex outside of a right relationship. In old Scotland, a couple could be "married" simply by declaring themselves married -- any sexual encounter would be "chaste" provided they stayed within that relationship. Conversely, I don't think some...

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

While I'm sure her parents are very important, quite possibly the heads of 2/7 families in the Syndicate, I still tend to think there's something about her which goes beyond that. Yes.

Re: Official "Discuss the latest page" thread

they don't seem like the artistic type that would do an aesthetic remodel of the ship But someone must've bought and installed those wonderful "Turkish" carpets in the common room on the Niobe. And wasn't there a grand piano? So someone has a keen aesthetic sense, as well as the cash to flash aroun...
