Been finishing up a book this last week and dealing with family stuff, so there hasn’t been a lot of in-game time (Epitaph hasn’t been logged in in 23 days, I’m told by a reliable source), but there has been some, and more to the point there’s been story stuff going on.
I noticed when I posted Jason’s annulment announcement last week that it was my fiftieth post to his thread. Nice round number.
Over 2300 hits, second only (in the Phalanx section) to the actual Phalanx TIMELINE, and walking away with the number-of-hits-per-post ‘W1N’ if not for the amazing number of hits on Velvet Jones (Khaaaaaan!!!! I mean… Daaaaave.)
That’s just… hmm. Lots of folks reading HT, for all that I haven’t touched him in months.
So I went back and read it. Not bad.
I still like Strat’s arrival into the Phalanx and Working Girl a LOT better, plotwise, and there’s a pile of stuff in there where I was too lazy and just posted up logs instead of doing proper writing, but it’s not bad.
Gave me an idea, in fact, for a story.
I mean… seems a shame to get to fifty posts and stop… or level 50 and stop roleplaying.
A real story. A proper, saleable thing, maybeven :).
God, in the Details, maybe. We’ll see.
I’ll letcha figure this one out:
What does the Lord require of you? To seek kindness, do justice, and walk humbly with your God. — Micah 6:8
Knowing others is intelligence;
knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength;
mastering yourself is true power.
If you realize that you have enough,
you are truly rich.
If you stay in the center
and embrace death with your whole heart,
you will endure forever.
— Lao Tzu, Tao te Ching
Teamed up some. Hype’s my boy — my god he kicks ass, but… wow. Empathy rocks my tiny, self-centered little world. Throw in controllery goodness and…
Well, let me illustrate with yet another quote:
Aright, nobody move. I’ve got a dragon and I’m not afraid to use it. — Donkey, Shrek
… which only one person will get right now, but damn it’s funny, trust me. 🙂
Goodness me, but there was some ass-kicking going on.
*attaches some shackles and torture devices to a wall in preparation for Strat’s next story — too bad Strat doesn’t know about it…
Two words: Coconut. Trophy.
I’ll provide a link to THAT story, later.
