The Custodians and August (Part 2)

This post continues the story from The Custodians and August (Part 1).

Step by Step

Keep plodding along. One of the hardest things for me to accept about work is that it takes time. Things that seem like they should take half an hour instead take an hour and a half. I discussed this in one of my early posts – The Trade – the feeling that things should beContinue reading “Step by Step”

The Mines (Part 2)

This post continues the post “The Mines (Part 1)“. Fear and Fact The mines’ ability to evade port-tracing filled many with fear.  If the Aggregate had technology advanced enough to port-in without being detected, the military outlook boded poorly for Proxima.  But the few communications that arrived from the embattled core worlds did not describeContinue reading “The Mines (Part 2)”
