Away I go!

Hiatus time, oh god! November 5th through December 21st, 2009.

The thing is, I am moving out to sea. Not The Cruise, but certainly a cruise. I've been granted a position on the Lady Washington, Official Tall Ship of Washington State, there to be a seagoing bookkeeper and wrangler of tourists. I get to wear a great costume, learn sea shanties, scramble around in real rope rigging, and once and for all eradicate any fear of heights. I also will be learning tons of stuff for The Cruise, like navigating by sextant and splicing rope and handling a ship (though the LW is many orders of magnitude larger than any boat I will ever own) in open waters. Good practice, good experience, good opportunity all around.

Downside! This is a period sailing vessel. Her rigging is tarred manila rope, her sails are canvas, her hull is wood, and the only thing wireless aboard her is... everything. You think they used wires in 1730? No internet. While we're on the Columbia, I maaaay have coverage on my aging uberphone, which means I'll have AIM for my downtime. Keeping my fingers crossed here. Otherwise... Ya'll will hear from me sporadically.  The ship's schedule is here, if anyone wonders just where I am.

The best way to get in touch with me is my phone's email addy, which is ockette AT tmail .com and you all know how email works. AIM is the same as it's always been.

I'm also doing NaNoWriMo. 6500 words and counting. I hope to reach 12000 before I reach the boat, which will be very close to the farthest I've ever gotten on NaNo. You NaNoers can find me on that website as TheHats, where I'll be updating whenever I can make it ashore to a hotspot.

Anyway, I'm going to have an awesome time. I'll miss the interwebs, but you know I'll be back.


Clair has figured out that the werecurse ended with Halloween, through she still has dead samples of the werepathogen in her blood. So she's come home. They will keep her busy for some time, as she tries to figure out if they can be used as a vector-virus to carry her drugs. She will share her findings with Otto, of course, and Eiko. And to a lesser extent with Doctor Grey.

Clair[fused] will be staying at home, having finally convinced her Norman to take a break from the corporate-political world. They're doing fine, and her shoulder is healing nicely.

Some, having gotten himself exorcised from the ghost world, is staying home to get over that particular trauma, and is fully occupied in cleaning up after Halloween, taking his sons to school, eying Nyoka's magical experiments nervously, the last of the harvest with Jon, and conducting a fuller exploration of the world on which he lives. Maybe he'll find fire lizards.

Doctor Cockroach is... I'm very sorry, Eek, I've dropped the ball. He's going to have to go back to Bikini or something for the time being.

Narrows pups over here.

I think that's it. Any questions, email at the above addy will get to me faster than commenting here. I'll post about the trip and nano and everything when I can, and we'll see how it goes.

For this meme, choose one character of yours and one character of mine - and then I will write out how they hook up, settle into a long term relationship and/or marriage, and describe their child/children.

I do not promise promptness. Snape had better show up in this meme somewhere.

First. Do you play on [livejournal.com profile] dear_multiverse? Yes? Good.

Omega walked into the Sanctuary, slouched and scowling an embarrassed scowl.  He kicked the couch Rassilon was sitting on.  "Father, I'm supposed to be conceived in a week and you're having fun being a woman."

Most of this is original.  Some is not.  Shush.  I am a creature of my fandoms.

- gold-rich planet, fourth out from the sun known as Faison. (Tor, Jevo, Ov, Ot, Os, Lom, Lem, and the gas giant Sten.) Earth-normal, complete with a race indistinguishable from humans, a race currently undergoing evolutionary split.

Sonani - A small, commerce-rich nation on Ot's temperate smallest continent, defined on to the South and East by the varigated coast, on the North by the tall Paper Mountains (Tesat Dir), and to the west by the river Shif and the neighboring nation across, Liod.

Sonani is ruled by a monarch, Queen Reeshan in trust for her teenaged son Reese.  Reeshan is widely regarded as fairer than her late husband, but the Sonan people are not looking forward to her son's coming of age.  He's publically perceived as spoiled and apathetic, any opinion he has firmly in the hands of his father's old advisors, none of whom are particularly fond of his mother or her rule.

Sonani is composed of seven duchies: Three coastal - Bearns, Rippon, Shoaks.  Four interior - Tilth, Farrow, Corn, and Mollon.  The Sonani river runs from Tesaf Dir directly south through arid Corn, pastoral Tilth, and serves as the border between Bearns and Shoaks until it meets the sea.

Alnen Or is the capitol city of Bearns, perched on the rocky west end of the Sonani Delta.  It's the crowning glory of that duchy, designed, laid out, and commissioned by Duke Forb, the grandfather of the current Duke of Bearns, aging Orade.   It boasts a large, easily defended harbor, with several out-lying islands fortified with watchtowers.  Bearn Or is the Duke's keep, an old stone keep that predates the town, build as part of the old town, and the only major structure to survive a war over fifty years ago.

Other things to remember: Bream (Amber), Javen, and take some linguistic notes.  And either draw some maps or make Karl do it, because damn, you're going to confuse yourself.
