All the things from today's release can be found in the Gen 2 category. For the main Gen 2 track, we have a continuation of Wasaman's "Dorms of Our Lives" ... Season 4, Part 1. In this episode, there is much gnashing of VI ferret teeth. Or maybe not. Maybe that's just the rodents in my mind, keeping the wheels spinning. I guess you'll have to read it to find out what it's really filled with. :)
Second is a short short bit from E. E. that shows, once again, never to trust a Whateley Universe author to use a reliable narrator. All our narrators studied storytelling under Coyote. Here's "Khali in Mourning."

Today's story continues our little touch into the space and orbital developments of the Whateley Universe, specifically as wanna-be A lister Viridian makes his attempt on the Orbital Hilton. E. E. and Elrod bring us Part 2 of this piece, "Tears and Fears."

Last week's prediction that today being Monday was never so clear after working a more 'regular' work week (in the sense that it has been my dominant schedule for 13 years, nine months per year). So, obviously... even though I got pounced by a cold the moment I started working around all the kids; here I am(and the content release) ready to go on time.
What do we have for you this week? Clearly we're up to no good... some Mischief, perhaps? More specifically, its "The Remedy for Mischief" from Morpheus, the third story in the Mischief arc.
Enjoy! And don't forget to comment or leave feedback!
The release time should settle back down now, as I get back to my regular season work with six days on and Monday's off. I'll be far less likely to lose track of what day it is... though no guarantees that I won't sleep the entire day. :P
For today, we have hopped into the time period between 'generations' and you get to see a bit of what happened between their time at school and when they became what you've seen in their Gen 2 cameos. This one is sitting down in the Second Generation Stories collection and is titled "Tears and Fears" ... Part 1, by E. E. Nalley and Elrod. Enjoy! Eagerly anticipate part two. Comment while you do!
Rough day at work today. Ok, not really. I walked around and looked awake, keeping all trouble makers from coming on the lot. It was so much fierceness, that I came home and promptly forgot its Monday and took a nap.
Had an interesting chat with our AC systems guy about the housing market and costs in California though. Like myself, he's worried that prices have gotten so high out here that if the economy crashes again, trying to keep up may simply not be possible. The irony is... there is a LOT of open property in the Sacramento area. There are always signs up. But the argument, year after year, for prices going up is that there is no new construction and the growth of the city is filling up what's available, making it a seller/landlord's market. And so rents rise 10-12% each year... even the ones that always have openings... or are offering special sign up deals. Greed. Not the worst thing running rampant in our society right now... but its a big one.
We need someone like Robin Hood... or maybe the Imp... to steal from our rich and give to the poor. Can you imagine redistributing wealth stolen from the Koch brothers ... oh the fun that would be... almost as much fun as diving into this next part (Five) of Imp: Imp-ervious to Reason. Be sure to tell Morpheus how much you love Imp and all his Whateley Universe work with a comment or feedback.
We have a piece from E. E. Nalley in the original timeline called "Tea and Tears" and a second from MageOhki in the Second Generation section called "Flowers in the Sun".
Please enjoy. And leave comments/feedback!
Not 'new' per se... but we evidently missed transferring in one of the Shadowrun Universe stories to the Library. That should now be fixed and available. "Sittin' On the Dock of the Bay" Parts one and two are from Bek D. Corbin.
This week's production of Mamma Mia! is sold out. All eight shows, all 2300 or so seats per show. I, fortunately, am not working the show itself except for one evening next weekend... or at least, that's what my schedule says. My schedule is basically all the other hours. The hours when there is no show but the possibility that someone may need access to deliver stuff, tweak stuff, rehearse, and so on. So, remove the midnight to 8 am block when the security company watches over us... and subtract the shows... and you have a rough shape of my schedule for the week. On paper.
In reality? Well, my boss just called and told me to clock out early this afternoon and come back around 6:30 or so... because the final dress rehearsal (which some people are invited to observe) has gotten blown out of all proportion as a result of the show being sold out and they expect most of the seats to be full tonight as well... except there is no normal operations crew on the schedule for the Monday nights. So... I'm now supposed to show up and make sure people get in and get in seats and that the rehearsal is not delayed in any ways due to audience stuff. That's going to be... amusing to say the least. On a regular performance, our House Manager has 30 ushers, the Ops Manager has his assistant, two leads, seven or eight cashiers, twelve or fifteen concessions workers, and ten or fifteen front of house workers, five security, and a partridge in a pear tree.... on the Monday nights its the House Manager, a hand full of ushers and a security guy. Adding me... I'm not sure how much that balances back out the scales. I'm good... but I'm not THAT good. :P
What IS that good, though... is more Imp. That's what Morpheus has for release this week: Part 4 of "Imp-ervious to Reason" the Seventh story in the Imp Arc. Enjoy! Comment!
1071So much crazy/index.php/visit/item/1071-so-much-crazy
So, we have something a little different for you tonight. While in our world, you're going to experience another of our Exploring the World Of Whateley Academy Series, but if you were IN that world, well, you're at the used book shop, or the library, and you've just discovered an old Classic Western 'true crime' novel from the turn of the last century. So you are, in effect, reading the book you saw Danny discover in his math class. The Last Ride of Black Jack Kingston.
Order up a plate of spaghetti, put on some Ennio Morricone, and saddle up for a western, Whateley Style!
So, sorry about the delay. But the good news is we have the latest installment of Morpheus' Imp-ervious To Reason! Enjoy and leave him a comment!
Ha... don't let them fool you. Kristin lost track of what day of the week it was (in my regular work, I do Tuesday to Sunday weeks... occasionally working on a Monday on those obnoxious times that my company thinks they can actually get away with making me work a seven day week.. but mostly having Monday's off because the actor's union keeps them from working. This summer gig is more facility/security work and there are no 'specific' days off. I get one... but it hasn't been the same one and my hours flip around from mornings to evenings from week to week... so I'm a bit disoriented half the time.
So I came in this afternoon ready to do the update only to find out that Dan and/or Phoenix (or maybe Warren?) got it taken care of. My apologies. I now realize that not only was I running close to the 5 pm clock release time... but its also evidently Tuesday.
So again... sorry about that. And thanks to the staff person who pushed the buttons and got the story out to everyone.
I hope everyone is enjoying this latest installment (Part 2) of Morpheus' "Imp-ervious to Reason". Comments and feedbacks are welcome and encouraged!
