Hey, there! Just want to say, I was really excited to see you pop up again, and then really excited again when I realized what you were posting! I had read the blurb about Valcentica on your characters' pages on the wiki, and was really curious to see how that situation would play out in story form.

I love that you decided to go (basically) journal style for this. Alec's narrative voice still carries all the attitude and pride of his spoken dialogue, even without Kitty to play off of. The sudden time jump, and then continuum jump, at the end are wonderfully startling, after the "opening data" staying largely irrelevant for the early parts of the story.

I hope we get a bit of follow-up to this, or maybe see Kitty's version of things? It does feel like there's more to learn of this event.

I look forward to seeing your spin-off continue, too!

        The site was a thing, I will tell you that. Alec's omissions will be coming out, at least partially, in an interlude that I'm working on right now! And I'm comforted, too...I honestly thought nobody... more

      I recognized the story within the first few lines, and basically went, "Oh, it's this! Yesss." Because I vaguely remember reading something about it and wishing that more of the story was already... more

        Oh, I think so! This was the freakin' albatross around my neck, because this mission was quite a turning point for both Kitty and Alec - and just how will slowly come out in subsequent missions. (I... more
