I hope everyone is having a good Monday. Err... ya, ok, few people have good Mondays given that Monday is the beginning of the week thing for so many workers. Let me offer up a little something to get you over that bad start of the week.
Today's story release is also from Bek (yes, two different stories from Bek in back to back weeks... when Bek punches through a block, things get lively).But when it was first presented, the discussion was about it maybe being Library material. We looked at it, had a little discussion, and decided that it IS indeed within the bounds of the Whateley Universe. However, the entire concept and through line puts it off-campus (and unlikely to ever visit on campus). So, for the moment... we're putting this into the Second Generation pile, because that's where it falls in the overall WU timeline. However, you'll notice that it falls into the 'outside world' category of 'spin offs' or the 'Off Campus' world.
In a sense, this is a bit like the SHIELD television series spinning off the Marvel cinematic universe. It's the same world, big picture, and its possible for plot lines and events to intersect or have an impact on each other... but the day to day events of the Dewinter Residence series is going to reflect a more adult New York City setting.That should be appealing to those of you who have enjoyed the Jadis/Jobe trips to the Big Apple... or who wanted to see more of the city and the 'biz' during G2's brief layover.
For your reading and universe expanding pleasure, here's Bek D. Corbin's "Professional Courtesy" - the first in the DeWinter Residence -or- Milady's series of stories within the Whateley Universe.
