Shorts Stories Comments

We are happy to introduce you to this short story series. These Short Stories are inspired by Hiroyuki Morioka's Seikai series. They take place 10 years after Jinto and Lafiel first met.

I hope to return to a more 'normal' schedule shortly...
I don't think a chapter a month will be likely for quite sometime though...

Enjoy.
So it begins.

Hopefully...

Update:
Fifty-Eight has gotten way too long... I've split it, the first part should be ready soon...
Right now personnel life is taking a front seat to writing...

Thank you...

Hopefully Fifty -Eight will be posted soon...

Update: Like fifty-eight, fifty-nine is running long.
I was planning on having fifty-nine posted by now, however, once again, 'real life' has thrown another curve in the mix.

Happy holidays...

Fifty-nine is ready.

There are a few things I'd like to clarify. (we'll see how many read this thread)

Conversations beginning and ending with * are internal conversations or conversations not on the communications net.

The communications net.

Ships of Shahrazad design borrowing from the Abh AI have improved communications, in effect all the present ships when linked, the Captain's and bridge crews have information from the other ships available in real time. Like I just said that works for Defiance, Discovery, Independence, plus the transport Ku Dorin. Planetary defense also sees what's on the net as well. To avoid data confusion the AI does filter information during combat, filtering it through the first officer unless otherwise directed by the Captain.

However KO aboard the Illusion does not, she has a voice only link from the three, and is unable to access the information the other ships have. In this case Scholar is acting as a median filtering information to KO via a telepathic link.

The difference between Grand Illusion and Illusion.
The first is the command ship alone, the second is the combined tactical force of the four ships... Pretty simple eh?

The Suran Queen:

One wonders why the Suran's are so close to those on Shahrazad? The answer is a simple one their Queen has a Shahrazad connection. She was the ambassador sent there to mediate a civil war. Once there and after assessing the situation she saw leadership lacking and over Lafiel's terse objections took a no longer neutral stand and helped the government deal with the outlaws. So loved by the Suran people they made her their Queen. She replaced the repressive government with a progressive one, establish trade with Shahrazad and the rest shall we say is history.

In my next post we'll discuss ship types and why so few crew on board... Hopefully...

Sixty one is posted... with this chapter I've learned something I'll share with you..
Never try to generate a document on multiple versions of MS Word, merging them becomes quite an issue. :flame:
So after taking the entire document to a 'neutral' text program all I had to do was completely reformat it in my 'normal' version of word...

Never again...

:rant:

Sixty two is there... don't know how long its gonna take... I need R/L to leave me be for a bit :amismiling:

Not giving up... just trying to squeeze too many hours into one day...
Also there has a bunch of R/L issues lately... I beginning to dislike 'end of life' visits and I'll let it go at that...

Progress on the next chapter has been made... although slowly, I did manage to complete a rather difficult explanation in a manner most should understand (I hope)...

A large brick wall labeled "Writers Block" is staring me in the face... Consider the next chapter on hold until I can punch through the wall..

There is a hole in the wall, not big enough to write through, yet.

Well hmmm... I was hoping this would be ready before now. Unfortunately 'real life' events have intervened in my other wise structured existence.
Now you wonder if this means my writing schedule has returned to normal?
I wish, hopefully there won't be six months between chapters, that said. Life still hasn't returned to 'normal' either.
Bear with me, hopefully I can get back to a 'normal' routine soon.

Happy New Year All....

:amismiling:
I did quite enjoy it and I'm very curious what their contingency is considering that... well, spoiler is spoiling
Spoiler:
Ramaj buys it much earlier in the OTL, maybe having much longer for everyone involved to plan. Not to say everyone is a benevolent or quite possibly rational actor.
The Zon seems to be employing a rather delightfully reminiscent maskirovka and one wonders where Jinto and Lafiel are headed though from prior talks I may have a guess or two!

All the best and I hope that things will get better for you. :happy

PS: This is giving me more ideas of my own! We should chat sometime again soon on it when available.

Just a note to Diaho....I really have enjoyed reading this story.....several times in fact! All the best and I look forward to the next chapter . It is great that you have a whole universe of characters and not just concentrating on Lafiel and Jinto...although they are still my favorite couple.

Thank you... World (er um Universe) building I enjoy very much, it's interesting to see how those who've interacted with Jinto and Lafiel use that experience in their 'daily' lives.

Sixty-four is done... I have to admit it should have been posted earlier...
However two days after my last post I lost my sister rather suddenly...
It's been hectic to say the least and the thought of an orderly writing schedule, well at the moment, its a dream that might come true someday soon.

Thank you for your patience and continued support...
