Fantastic entry, I'm sure it'll be no surprise that my favourite part was the return of Krotious!
Thank you, and me too. A lot of it seems to be just rejections from the job hunting, and family issues, but there's a lot more too it. I really should try to get into writing more often though as it's a good way to take my mind off of things. Perticularly, i would like to get in and add more background into the two characters in that last entry if i find time between letters of rejection lol. I really don't want to leave Krotious' back story so shallow, and i wanted to delve more into Vrel's list and a few of the other names he's crossed off.

Those're never good, but try not to let it get you down, companies know that in today's climate, they can afford to be picky, and are turning away perfectly good applicants I have to admit, Krotious works quite nicely as a bit of an enigma, it gives him an air of mystery, rather than becoming a sympathetic villain, which a deeper background could do... I'll keep an eye out for any revisions

Well if i do go deeper into the background, don't worry. There is no possibility of making him a sympathetic villain. It would all be to show what he was before compared to what he is now, and give a little insight to the character. I will consider the Mystery aspect however.

Ahh, now I guess that could work by pointing out how far Krotious has risen in the status stakes from being that crew's b*tch/scapegoat, to being a full on badass

Note: Second Story for this LC.

Intermediate story until the next Challenge comes up, this is a standalone set on New Romulus, far from the capital when the Gateway is activated and takes place concurrent with the events of Spheres of Influence.

This story is heavily, heavily influenced by the events of Supertyphoon Haniyan and the Christchurch New Zealand Quake of 2011. Caution: I was going for raw emotional impact this time.

Story is located Here

Heavy stuff, but very nicely written, very compelling reading

I've stopped working on previous LCs like I said I was trying .. for now.

The recent entries are great to read for a distraction though I'll wait for LC54 to see where Kathryn and crew went.

Yeah, it's very disheartening when even the seasonal jobs tell me no thanks. Hopefully you're having better luck.


It will be nice to read more of your entries though if the mood hits you during the holiday season.
