Some further images of the Star wolf, from the outside, to give an idea of the external layout. Neno is at the wheel in the cockpit in all of them, so you can get an idea of the relative size of the thing. I finally figured out how to put them on a transparent back ground, and used that so that the lighter parts like the landing gear and the cannons would show up better.

I'll go with seven teenage girls... in a manner of speaking and write something
up with The Splitter involved. (Does that sound like some-sort of script from a
70's porn movie?!!)




Wimmin. Wimmin made the hair different. When he had one, he pulled it all out,
and when he didn't, it would grow back. Simple biological physics.


They owe us BOTH... big-time.

EDIT: Nice tub!

Hey guys...
I was just conjuring up an idea for Dag...that she has gone to see Gert at Mucklebones' suggestion (which is where she is while Muckles was getting her new 'gown' and runestones from Ship)...
I was considering that Ben might have gone to interrogate Gert, he was pretty steamed at her for 'fooling' Dag and causing all the tension back in Vandalia....

But, just let me know if any of you have 'written' him in to your upcoming scenes. I was planning on getting Brittle involved there, too....

so, now I'm sorta dead in the water until I know if Ben is otherwise occupied or not.
Cheers!!

No problems... I was conjouring whether to have Splitter mention Brittle's
presence on The Yydryl.
Onwards!

Cool, thanks....yeah, Brittle is there. I have a nagging feeling that the stuff between Adam and Brittle and Dag, with Ben's assistance, and Gert's comeuppance, are still unfinished.

But, if everyone else has lost interest in the whole idea....
it can simply be dropped.


Guess I need to wait for Silo13 to call dibs on Ben so I don't screw anything up...

and Neno was supposed to have a knock on the Starwolf door from Silo and Pip, as I understood...and Adam was last seen being dressed down by Neno in a big way.

If no one has a firm idea what to do with Dag, Adam, Ben, Gert, and Brittle, I will carry on....
can Muckles show up again at Cecilia, where Ben is confronting Gert? And he perhaps 'found' Brittle while he was poking around looking for zombies or trouble.
he was the only one present while Dag and Brittle were in the wilds of Copperhead Canyon....

and he was NOT pleased with the entire situation...doesn't seem like the kinda guy who would just "meh" and move on without some resolution.

Let me know, folks...I've started a draft, but will stop until receiving further input/feedback regarding this tangent.

I've got no plans for Ben. I just recalled that he was missing, and was tossing out ideas for where he might be and why. I don't know if Silo is going to need him in the Center or not, but he can be wherever you all need him to be as far as I'm concerned.



and Neno was supposed to have a knock on the Starwolf door from Silo and Pip, as I understood...and Adam was last seen being dressed down by Neno in a big way.


I think that was more of an "eventually" thing, rather than imminent. Right now Silo and Pip are having a "moment", hunting for a hunting dog in a land where hunters are around every corner.

Yeah, there's definitely some milage there. Just as a re-cap... (to me mainly!) can you give
out Brittle's past history?

Nope, not really!
All we know is that he is a Native American, probably a shaman-type by inheritance....but we met him when he abducted Dag, and don't know anything about his background....
thanks for reminding me...
at the very least, I can do some character development stuff on him....using memories, flashbacks, etc.

Thanks again, guys, for the suggestions!!
Coolio...
I'll just wait for Silo13's go-ahead, then.


EDIT::: Oh, oh!! I have an idea. maybe he and Adam will team up! Or, maybe he and Dag will hook up....or, maybe Dag will again become androgenous somehow...the Splitter could do that, right??
Then the two suitors could "compete" to win her over....
fun times...always fun to have guys scrappin' fer yer favor....

W.T Nope - don't need to use Ben at all. Have at 'im.

BIAD & Neno - That Sslar is in the Center? I'll make it vague if at all - if nothing else it will leave an opportunity later to tie back into Sslar having found that tree and/or was looking for it.

Have a nice weekend all!

See that's the freaky thing. After the kill off of the zombies? The Center is supposed to have nothing more dangerous (in animal form) than biting insects, maybe some...SNAKES...etc. That BIG animals are there - even as big as rabbits - is going to come as a HUGE surprise to Silo - but not Pip I have an idea as he knows far much more about the 'Torus Tree' than he seems to be letting on - if only in theory.

Obee kaybee then!

I'm going outside to dig in my garden while my muse does its magic....
just to let you all know then, that is my plan....
Ben, Adam, Dag, Brittle, Gert...and perhaps BIAD and the Splitter can give it some gusto...it was BIAD who busted Brittle/Lancelot and Guin/Dag....I'll have to go back and look that one up.

One other tiny thing...
I gather we're done with the Index thread...correct?


OH and one more BIG THING.....PICTURES!
Love the Starwolf illustrations! We frequently have a not-finished-yet game of old school monopoly on our coffee table here at our place!

Also, BIAD, your talent for illustration blows my mnd. Both of you are fantabulous at it....you too, Silo, love seeing Chumley stuck in weird places like that.

In the blink of an eye my last post just consumed me and now needs editing.
It's haunting.
Tragic.
Terrible.
Lovely.
And I have no idea where it came from!

And will not be posted until tomorrow, lol.

Oh - and - it includes - Pip, Sslar, a frantic horse, a pistol, a rifle, a stun gun, Carpet, Chumley and another Wally, Toby the dog, Silo...and...blood...

Tune in tomorrow...

Oh the DRAMA of it all, lol.

So! Sslar is shot - but alive. Silo shot - but alive. Carpet near dying with fear. Chumley gunned into action (no pun intended) is heading for their coordinates in the Center with another WALDO to 'get' Sslar, Silo and Pip (who's still laying there stunned poor thing). Toby? Dead as a stump. (I wonder if it's only me that 'got' that part)...

I can almost hear Neno's Speedo's twisting. Shooting a boys dog! BUT! To save Sslar who the boy already shot? Well my oh my what talks Neno and Pip might be having aboard the Starwolf before too long.

I can even almost see Pip 'disappearing' from Ship. Running away from home so to speak - a 'stowaway' on the ol' Starwolf. Poor Neno wondering what's going on with food and liquor disappearing. And Carpet! Who else has a better shoulder for him to cry on other than Neno's? That Starwolf is gonna get mighty cramped lol!

But maybe not that's getting ahead of the story.

Added Note: I'd love to 'hear' a 'conversation' between the mighty Sslar and 'Dog' at their encounter and just before Sslar is shot.

Do any of you want to tackle that? If not I've got a few ideas but nothing cemented yet so no problem - in fact it would be fun to hear it from one of your perspectives.

Just tossing out the idea to see if it sinks or swims.

I would like a swing at that one... it sounds interesting.

May I?

I can see neno taking Pip for a walk in the woods in the Center, then wrapping Pip's rifle around a tree just before explaining to him that he'll get Pip another gun when he's old enough to know when the wag and when to bark - in other words, when to shoot and when NOT to shoot, and explaining to him how a single careless shot set the whole tragedy in motion, resulting in one dead and two wounded.

Is there a Doctor in the house? Where the hell is Adam when you need him? Out stalking someone else to throw a flying tackle on?

Don't let me stop you!

That dialog's been going through my head all day - but I'm not up for posting it.

I think, just for me I'm going to write a bit and then post it here in the working thread - just out of shear curiosity to see how it compares to what you envision!

You take the story line and have fun!

There ya go! I was thinking a good 'go out and cut me a hickory switch son' lesson too - but again - I don't want to play director here, just having fun thinking of the possibilities.


And yeah, where is Adam? Maybe Chumley hunted him down before rolling into another Waldo and heading out to the 'dead zone'?

I think if Adam arrives at the scene it could be "interesting", seeing as how neno had told him to straighten things out with Dag....I suspect that's what's on his mind, whether or not to go talk to her.

Certainly his "approach" to shot-Silo is going to be affected by neno's presence there....will he know how to behave? Probably going to be a bit confused....

are the folks in the center still out of Ship's range?

We haven't seen Adam since neno caught him outside the cave as he was leaving Silo....
maybe he never left the center.
edit on 22-4-2012 by wildtimes because: (no reason given)


Or.....maybe he had stumbled upon Dag and they will be interrupted by the distress call for Silo...causing him to hastily leave her, which would throw yet another wrench in the drama between him and the two females.
edit on 22-4-2012 by wildtimes because: (no reason given)


I'm happy to 'try it on' if yall want...that is, what he did after leaving Silo, where he is, where his thoughts are...
keeping in mind he still doesn't know what went on at the McAllister place or any of that situation. All he knows is he's not in the cave anymore, and they are all back on ship. Did everyone get debriefed on everyone else's adventures in Vandalia?

I agree, that would be a good start on the road to 'fixing' things!
