Hey all,

notwithstanding the melodramatic title, I've noticed - since this chapter of Just 'cause is taking longer than usual - that it's pretty darn quiet here. Where is everyone? Write! Post! (And don't forget the Ultimates community on Livejournal, either. God, it's lonely out there.)

Now, on to slightly more happy question. Seeing how JC is almost done, I've been pondering what to work on next. Peruse the poll above and share your opinions.

I didn't know about the lj community. Too bad I'm quitting lj, that would have been cool.

Wedding Bell Blues is still in the works, as I recall...other than that, I don't think I have anyone else still waiting on me. If one of you guys does need something from me, feel free to remind me.

Speaking of waiting, I'm curious to see what Nox is doing with Nina.

Yes, Wedding Bell Blues is still in the works, but I do not have the previous chapters since I didn't make a point to archive them. If someone did, I'd appreciate having a copy of the chapters already written. Look to somewhere after Origins but before GenCon Indy for the next part.

Ashes to ashes,

I see I am not in the contest I am so sad  Cry lol j/k.  I'll start writing here in a bit and repost the last chapter I wrote.  I forgot to archive the first chapter and will have to re edit the original copy I have to make it more reader friendly.

I have a bit of backlog of work. Rest assured Nina is not forgotten.

Finally, vexing forum system....

Eh Yo. /Omar.

Anyway, yeah. Hmm. Well, I'd like to see a conclusion to Present Past. Pretty much anything with Tina makes me smile, small surprise.  Grin
The Rowena/Wind/Valentina team rocked on toast, love to see more of that.

Actually, given how supremely disparate yet equally impressive Gatac and 'Nox's styles are I'd love to see Valentina in one of Gatac's works. That is neither a subtle hint nor a plea, simply a statement of fact. Really. =]

Besides that....hmm....

Present Past. Yeah, that's a point. Tina's due a reunion with Koschei and Caitlyn, who she hasn't seen since she was a baby being spitited away...

Yup yup. Plus, there's the question of...well, what of Eva? If Kaity's the host-apparent then she's got a decent leg up on starting anew. No armies or legions of goons, but Mjolnir's just dropped into her lap along with one very cunning immortal Valkyrie. Something to be said for working in small ways.

Then there's the what next. 'Tina comes home to the Monolith, surely, but what of The Conspiracy, The Company, and the New World Order? She missed her chance to Go West with the rest, so presumably Valentina goes underground and that's not necessarily an easy or welcome change of scenery for someone who previously defined destiny as duty. She has no taste for mercenary work, possessing both a personal revulsion to the "baseness of it" (destroying for paycheck) and an outlook that acknowledges her utter absence of covert tradecraft -what with her being as approximately subtle as a suitcase nuke. That's excluding Mjolnir's influence. It must have plans because you can do anything with the bonded artifact hammer of a god except sit on it.
In addition for the Eisensamen blood does very much call to blood, and her strain-sisters are out there as well, no less drifting in the wind and no less charged with mystic potential. The Great War ended a decade too early for all of them.

Or in other words, having failed to die destroying her enemies what now -go into Professional Wrestling/Rugby/Career Bimbo?
Perhaps Valentina simply desperately prays Equinox will offer her the outlet she craves. A chance to settle up with the bad guys, just one more time...
Or best of all some miracle opportunity to leave more then rent-apart corpses and arterial spray in her wake, some way to be something more then just a spent weapon...
