Surviving without Robert Jordan

As posted by myself previously, with the sad passing of author Robert Jordan, the Wheel of Time series has been left without an ending. I am happy to pass along, that an author has been chosen to finish the last book (based on the many notes/drafts/etc already created by Jordan), with an expected release of Fall, 2009. This is good news! ...of course, now we all have to wait 2 years...

Story: SM-7536: Part 3

Confused? Start here:Story: SM-7536: Part 1

Another report, this one by a policeman helping with the emergency evacuations, gives some of the details of the final approach of the object.

So I was out there, ya see, helping to direct traffic for the evacuees, and things was going pretty smooth-like. And everyone was a little panicky, driving a little crazy-like, but that's to be expected, what with the impending doom and all. So anyway there I was, out directing traffic, like I says, and off in the distance I see a strange glowing kinda thing, up in the sky... at first I didn't pay it no mind, because everyone knows that meteors burn up in the air and all, so I didn't think it was nothing to worry about. But it kept getting closer and closer, and and bigger and bigger, and pretty soon everyone started seeing it too, even in their cars, and folks was getting mighty desperate to get out of there, cuz it looked like it was headin' right for us. Now, I won't say I was…

Story: SM-7536: Part 2

Confused? Start here:Story: SM-7536: Part 1

From a report filed by an officer of the National Guard, regarding the events she witnessed in the early morning of Friday, June 12th, 2015.

My unit approached the most populated area in our designated target zone, bringing with us as many empty troop-carrier trucks as we managed to find before heading out. We went in as fast as possible, with the desperate hope that we would be able to load up our trucks with anyone and everyone we came across, and then rush them back out of the area as quickly as possible, hopefully getting them out of the area about to be destroyed by the incoming meteor.

En route to our destination, we received radio communications, indicating that the meteor was beginning to slow down as it approached the surface. This made very little sense to us, however it did mean we had that much more time to save as many people as possible.

We had fully loaded two of our trucks, and sent them heading out of the risk-area. On appro…

Story: SM-7536: Part 1


Being a full and complete recording of the events related to Study Material 7536 (SM-7536).
Beginning in the year 2015 A.D., and extending to include all appropriate time periods and intervals.
Record follows.

The meteor was first detected by an observatory in Australia, and given a non-memorable designation. It's expected trajectory was to take it past Jupitor, pass “close” to Earth (in solar terms), and then after a hook around the Sun, it would leave our Solar System, never to be seen again. This, of course, did not happen quite as expected.

As more and more observatories picked up the watch it, its course seemed to change. It first swung away from Jupiter, as if attempting to avoid its gravity well. Then, it cut violently back across the sky, swung around Jupiter, and hurled away on its new trajectory. This new path would, without any doubts, hurl it directly into Earth.

Once news of the impending impact reached the media, the story exploded across the news mediums. CN…

Story Challenge

So my friend and co-worker bill challenged me to a "competition" of sorts... we both have said how we'd like to try writing stories, but neither of us have really been able to compell ourselves to spend the time to do so (for an exception, see his recent pirate-themed short story on his site: A Pirate Secret ). So anyway, he challenged me to start a story, and we would both try to post part of it online every day (thus compelling us to have to write more each day).

So without further ado, I give you... well, see my next post!

Robert Jordan: October 17, 1948 – September 16, 2007

"The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose.... The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of time.
But it was a beginning."

kicking it "old school"

as you most likely did NOT notice, i just imported some of the entries from my old livejournal... not all of them, as some (most?) i felt weren't "worthy" of the "high standards" i keep around here... meaning they were lame and/or boring... but i moved some of them over!

no comments were moved during this process... i don't know if i'll bother with copying comments or not... if you see some... (perhaps your own!) that you think should be re-commented, feel free to go to my old live journal and copy/paste those comments into the appropriate entry here!

ah, fond memories
