OOC Entry 113 - Valentine's Day

What would be a better start for a Valentine's Day story than a happy woman with thoughts of personal affection on her mind? In that case Hegomir Torstan's personal assistant who prepares for the day that her employer is due to return to active duty in his laboratory.

Well, those of you who read any of my earlier stories will most likely expect that this can not last, especially with the Gallente spy Adrain Sourail still out there and preparing his next move.

Also in this episode the Awakened Industries capsuleers are finally united again and receive news of the situation in their home system.

Happy Valentine's Day.

OOC Entry 112 - New Year Revival

It has been a long time since I wrote anything for my blog. Roughly half a year, enough for the usual blog to be considered dead and dropping off the radar. I had asked a friend to help me out and publish some stuff as well, but he went on to mostly write for Crossing Zebras. Not that I can hold it against him, who wouldn't like to write for a well respected news site.

I may have lost the few readers I had anyway, but still, after all this time, I decided to continue my story writing. Who knows, maybe I attract some attention or someone who is into EVE fan-fiction finds my story collection on the byways of the net.

So what took me so long anyway?

As a matter of fact, this episode has been waiting on my harddrive since a mere week after I wrote the first part of that story. I ended up not publishing it because of no particular reason and then I kept on forgetting about it. When I drop out of a routine, I tend to easily forget everything that relates to it. Not playing EVE and not seeing my co-writer and RL friend much in those last months did not help with that. We did run into eachother during new-years eve though, and he asked me about picking up where I left and so I did.

After so long, it feels weird publishing such a piece which is still building up the story and does not feature anything spectacular. I had to also remind myself where I was going with this but I think I mostly remember now.

In any case, the arc of the Gallente spy continues from his point-of-view and we learn about his abilities and the way he works. Finally, in the end it will be revealed who the mysterious fleet are that has been busy looking for a way to Awakened Industries wormhole settlement. As you might already have guessed, they are not nice guys, but things may turn out in unexpected ways.

Of course one swallow doesn't make a summer and I will have to take an effort to re-establish my publishing routine as flaky as it has sometimes been in the past.

If you have followed my writing before, then I welcome you back. If you happen to be new, then I greet you and suggest you start somewhere at the beginning otherwise nothing in that current story will make the slightest sense to you.

To all of you, happy 2015!
