"Sir! Sir... Emiranlomaar? I beg a moment of your time!"
Thu May 21, 2015 10:19

"I have found myself transported, sir, transported to this labyrinth! No spells come to my aid, I cannot be pointed in the direction of the sun or stars, and there are beasts and fairies everywhere! Moments ago, I am ashamed to say I fled from what appeared, against all rationality, to be some manner of upright mechanical man! I am informed that your department is the closest thing to a constabulary here, and therefore throw myself upon your mercy, sir! To put it bluntly, sir, I know not where I am and I am most grievous frightened!"


((This is the introduction of Algie, an upcoming character from the universe of noted inky breezeblock Jonathan Strange and Mister Norrell and general Friend of English Magic. JS&MN is a wonderful book, which I have recently reread after the so-far excellent BBC adaptation came out, and Algie'd fit right in; a Strangeite practitioner of magic spells, but moreover a gentleman of learning and good character, if slightly overmuch given to panic. He'll be a DIA Special Respondent paired with a refugee from XCOM's Long War mod, which makes vanilla XCOM's Impossible difficulty look like a massage from a supermodel made of chocolate and cloud fluff. Field Commander McCandless, the refugee in question, is a short blonde woman with a penchant for plasma weaponry that borders on the fetishistic and a slightly odd past. They'll be introduced in a proper fic that will be started Soon(tm) - I'm basically waiting on Iximaz to finish reading Worm so that she can understand what's wrong with the fic and also so I have someone to sob with in a totally undignified manner. =] ))

    Taking questions for: Gaspard De Grasse Harris Frost Terabyte Emiranlanoamar
    • One for Emiranlanoamar!Iximaz, Sat May 23 17:49
      (Well, two. Did you know your name's really awesome?) Anyway, I know you don't like the Continuity Council, but do you get along with any of its members, at least?
      • My name?Emiranlanoamar, Sat May 23 20:30

          • Now you're talking.SeaTurtle, Sun May 24 10:27

            • Uh, could I butt in?Agent Wobbles, DF, Sun May 24 18:48
              It's not a Prydonian, but the Notary's TARDIS is a type 83. I... think she said it was that. I'd check, but, um, that's a big ol' nono. And you can get some requisition forms for that, because she... more
              • So you heard me, then?Emiranlanoamar, Sun May 24 20:21
                Right. Sorry you had to hear that. I really need to keep a lid on things like this. So, a Type 83 blockade runner. I bet she mistreats it, too. She's a clerk: what does she know of TARDIS repair? The ... more

            • Gonna have to agree with you on that.Iximaz, Sun May 24 16:37
              The Type 100s kind of creep me out, to be honest. The Type 83 sounds fantastic, though. :) Now, me, if I were lucky enough to have a TARDIS, I'd pick a Type 52.

      • Oh, I know Eeyore.Gaspard De Grasse, Fri May 22 16:24
