Fiction Friday?

I keep seeing Draken at Sand, Cider and Spaceships, do fiction Fridays. As a follower, with little individualism  I've felt that I'm left out of a loop I didn't know existed. I decided I would have my own Fiction Friday and here it is!

Actually, most of it is BS other than wanting to do Fiction Friday because it sounds cool. The idea came to me during the presentation of the Origins Trailer at Fanfest. While some found it well done but uninspiring my mind was burning with imagery, ideas, possibilities, futures, characters, and events.

Today, I hide behind a shield of 'interpretation'.

This story is a bit different. It's based in the Eve world but not Eve Online. Instead, today I tap into Dust 514.

Falling Immortal is my interpretation of playing Dust 514.

I like military books a lot, wars, ground fighting, armor, cyborgs, solders  Dust inspires that for me int he world of Eve. Instead of spaceships I have the nitty-gritty heat of the fight. The dust solider's landing was my inspiration. I tried (and may have failed here and there) to use a current tense. I have never tried this before in any of my writing. I've normally disliked books written this way. Yet, to try to capture the immediate speed and the flicker of motion that is a First Person Shooter I switched to it and I personally, like the results.

It excites me a bit. I updated Dust and ran a few matches. I don't know what I was doing. I did kill at least one other person. I know the game is deeper into the meta but I just wanted the sweep and the feel. I still can't get into Dust 514. It is a first person shooter. I am not drawn into actual game play no matter how cool I find everything else about the game. However, I am not bored by the concepts and ideas contained inside of it. Thinking about it, visualizing it, feeling it, interacting with it through Eve Online... that I enjoy.

I then injected a bit of music into it. While I am not big into music, certain stories get caught upon strands of music and it helps to carve the feel of them.

Evanescence - "Going Under"

I'm going under 
Drowning in you 
I'm falling forever 
I've got to break through

I...

So go on and scream
Scream at me I'm so far away 
I won't be broken again 
I've got to breathe - I can't keep going under

I dive again

I know that I am not writing true to game play. I do hope that I captured to feel of it and brought it to life some. It is an attempt at something very new. I release it to fly or to fall.

It was a random question that I knew the answer of. I have 'Sugar' as a keyword so it highlights green and catches my attention. This made me chuckle. Maybe I'll have to go and see what it is like to shoot a ship one day? I could not help but smile. Basi suggested that I put my Titan killmail in my bio and assert my badassery. I figure, naw. It was a roll of the dice that landed me that kill mail. It doesn't define me as a person. Bios are interesting. The idea of a biography is a way to personalize your account. You can learn a lot about a person by what they choose to put in their bio

Taboo Questions

Let us talk contentious things. What about high sec? When will CCP pay attention to high sec and those that cannot spend their time in dangerous space?  This is somewhat how the day started, sparked by a question from an anonymous poster. Speaking about high sec, in general, is one of the hardest things to do. The amount of emotion wrapped around the topic is staggering. There are people who want to stay in high sec and nothing will make them leave. There are people who want no one to stay in high sec and wish to cripple everything about it. There are people in between, but the two extremes are large and emotional in discussion. My belief is simple. If a player wishes to live in high sec, I do not believe that anything will make them leave that is not their own curiosity. I do not believe that we can beat people out of high sec or destroy it until they go to other areas of space. Sometimes, I think we forget that every player has the option to not log back in. We want them to log

Summer in Iceland - Day Six

It is the final day and we have moved past Sion's shark consumption. We left Cafe Loki and just strolled back through town. I wandered in and out of stores looking for soft gloves or socks. There are lots of gloves, socks, scarves, hats, and etc all over the place but most of them are made of wool and are as harsh and scratchy as anything I have ever seen. I wanted something soft and silky and amazing and I didn't find that which is okay. The general game plan was to find this Ice Cream place across the street from CCP. It seems that they make their ice cream daily and it is the most amazing ice cream ever. So, we head to this ice cream place which is also near a grocery store and some museums. We go in and Corbexx orders some terrible concoction of salted peanuts and some candy that I hate. He said it was delicious. I was stuck staring at the flavors and not knowing what anything was because I'm illiterate in Iceland. I also have an ongoing problem with catching the
