For those who care, I took the time to update my ever-lengthening fanfic “The Devil and the Deep Black Sea” over at ClassicBattletech.com. Sorry it took so long. I’ve been out of communication with my muse for a while, and only just now figured out how to write that scene.
I’ve sent Alison back to my Mother’s place for a few days. It’s easier to clean when there’s noone arond who’ll have a severe reaction to anything that might get kicked up. Gerald is trying to assemble a crew to clean up tomorrow. Initial indications are good, but I’ve had these things fall apart before with good indications.
I play too much Supreme Commander. I’ve beaten all three campaigns and can reliably defeat a Supreme AI. There are limits to what my system can do, and so I’ve not tried anything really big in a while. I think I prefer UEF as a rule, their stuff makes the most sense to me. Working for the Evil Empire is somewhat of a downer, though. The Aeon campaign was probably the most interesting, and I like the princess, but religious weirdos with even weirder tech is a bit of a turn-off. The Cybrans are just crazy, and their stealth fetish causes some trouble for me as a commander. Walking Destroyers are also an issue, as they prefer going overland (slow) to through water (fast) if it’s a more direct route. Pathfinding for these guys needs help. It’s neat to have a universe where noone is even remotely right.
It’s occurred to me that some 60% of my problems would be solved if people would get over things. You all know who you are, too. Or if you don’t, I may need to smack you.
