Fiction Days Ahead

It is fiction day. That is a warning for those who don't like such things. There will be a few more over the next two weeks.

At the moment I am writing for the Pod and Planet Fiction Contest. I'm very excited about this contest but slightly miffed that it came in the middle of Eve Vegas and my Vacation. Thankfully, my main serious entry was completed before I left for Vegas. I have a few more up my sleeve and about two weeks to produce them. That may mean a few skipped blog days. Gasp. Will it burst into flames from neglect?

This particular entry is going into the humor category which is also labeled, "Other Things Just Make You Swear and Curse". It is a fun story and very short. It bubbled up thanks to Altaen being silly in Jabber, composed itself and I spat it out. Because it is simple and short I decided to start with it. I feel that my writing and storytelling abilities are more solid this year. Last year was a learning experience. This year I am trying to bring new and better things to the table. I have an entry for each category with two complete and two in the works. That will decrease my story spam down to four from the six last year. However, I am very pleased with all four of my ideas and I'm not going to push to create more than I did last year. Instead, I hope show a general improvement while keeping my writing style interesting for readers of Eve Fiction.

I also have editors.

This is also when I get to pimp my Fiction page. It's all obsessed Eve Fan Fiction. I have my entries from last year, my more lore focused attempts, and various projects such as my Epic Poem of Ueberlisk to my taking the Damsel in Distress mission and turning it into a 3 part 10k word serious story. I've even been writing Dust 514 fiction because... why not? It is a good story to work from and I like the source material.

Fiction stories are completely different from Origin of a Spaceship which is an ongoing project to document all the flora and fauna of New Eden into the Encyclopedia Spaceshiptanica.

Sugar’s Non-Technical Guide to Making Boosters

Welcome to my non-technical and outdated but probably still useful guide to boosters.  There have been changes to how things are built in Eve. This was the old POS code before the introduction of new structures in 2016.   This is just a walk through on my wobbling path of booster production.  It took me half a dozen different documents to figure out what I needed to do to make these mythical things.  It is what I do.  It may not be perfect but it works.

This is pirate focused industry.
This guide brought to you by Lain asking me to write it after I tried to explain it in chat.

Why make boosters? Because drugs are good.  Really they are performance enhancers and performance enhancers can give someone that extra edge in PvP.  It was also because my boys used them and when they ran low they often ran out, I could be their supplier.  They would no longer hoard their drugs due to the length of time it takes to get fresh product.. The thought of being a drug kingpin was also very appealing. …

CSM: Running for Office: Week Six

Nine days untill  the polls open.

It is amazing how much effort can go into crafting thirteen hundred characters. When I first looked at my CSM application I thought that it would be easy to write the official words. Of course it was not. The limit was the largest hurdle. I had so much to say and so few words to say it in. But, I eventually worked through it and submitted everything last Sunday evening. I sent off my passport at the same time and now it is just a short, but long wait.

Tomorrow is the final day of application submissions. Then, on the 3rd, we should find out who actually submitted their applications and passports and passed their background checks. The polls open the following Tuesday. I’ve checked my submission a few times. If I try to fill out the form with Sugar again it tells me that she has already submitted one. I sent my e-mail to the correct place. How I wish for a confirmation email to stare at. For now, i just fret. When I started the run I was worried about …

Busy, busy, busy

I find that it is still easy to write about Eve. However, I've not been playing Eve. I spent most of the last few weeks finishing up my crochet project. It was a birthday present for my best friend. Since someone expressed interest in it, here it is.

It is displayed on a king size bed. I made it as a birthday present for my best friend. We've had twenty years of friendship. I met her online when I was a teenager. Our birthdays are two weeks apart so I celebrated mine by making her something. I'm not one to celebrate birthdays but now and then I try to pull myself to a social norm and do something special for the people I love.

I spent a long time fighting to be myself. I finally discovered a balance in this last handful of years. It is still a struggle but for some reason, in my late thirties, understanding is moving briskly along. With that understanding comes comfort. I don't have to fight about and for things like I used to. I don't have to make anyone accept me…
