Changing the Fabric of Fie Eoin's Culture

Happy Thursday, Aledan Merfolk! The past week has been a mind-boggling whirlwind for me. I thought my foot was broken (it’s not – just a burst blood vessel and shoes that rub against it, making it worse), we’ve had three different sets of people come to our house for various upkeep reasons, with another two sets yet to come, and we threw a dinner party on Saturday. One of my coworkers gave us her extra tickets to a Beck concert last spring, so we repaid her with homemade polish-style ribs, pierogies, and sauerkraut (and “Becka Margaritas” which are regular margaritas with an inappropriate amount of tequila. They didn’t go with the polish food, but no one seemed to mind ;P). The female-half of the guests got to play with my ponies and make up, while the male-half talked politics. The female-half had much more fun 😉

Last week I mentioned that autumn always turns my thoughts to Fie Eoin, and I did indeed spend most of the past week working on that instead of Speak the Ocean. One offhand comment from Kindra made me realize that I need a god who embodies negativity/chaos. So I’ve changed the pantheon, and thus the entire fabric of Fie Eoin’s culture. Which means I have to re-write the entire damn thing…again. It’s a good thing I love this book so much, because I’m kind of sick of rewriting it.

But Kindra! Whee! It’s hard to get into her heart to write her properly, but I do love it so much when it clicks. And I’ve missed her the past two years.

I have to finish StO first, though. No more playing with Kindra and Gar and Monk until I’ve finished aging Erie up. I got the first two chapters back from a CP, and I’m headed in the right direction, so I just have to keep going. I’m trying to be ready to query by the 15th, so I need to bust my butt and finally get this thing done. Then I can play with Kindra, or with the new character from the Enfields book. I have lots of good ideas for that one, I just have to figure out where everything goes.

Have a good weekend, Aledans. We’re prepping for Hurricane Joaquin and a foot of rain here, as well as my birthday (and the Warrior’s Ceremony in FE’s world). And hey, maybe we’ll have a cut scene on Sunday to celebrate 🙂

The World of Chameleon

The Meteors

In 2172 meteors struck the earth starting with initial impact in the city of Damascus. By the time the meteors hit earth, they were approximately the size of a small buss – enough to cause significant damage, and topographical changes worldwide. Coastal cities were flooded, and the meteors sent showers of dust into the atmosphere, causing massive ozone failure and billions of deaths.

Those who pulled through had to compensate by not going out in the main heat of the day, because of the slightly caustic nature of the air while the sun was in the sky. They began to develop cities sheltered by domes with intricate filtration systems.

One of the other side effects was the psionic gene. Several years after the meteor showers, psionic abilities started manifesting themselves in recently born children. And after almost a hundred years, when the meteors were safe enough to approach and research – the alien parastitic metal adrium was discovered. Due to a freak accident, they learned that it electricity activated it. Harvesting and experimentation began.

The story is set in 2350s

The Blurb:

When Sai’s newly awoken psionic powers accidentally destroy her apartment complex, she’s thrown into an intensive training program. Her only options are pass or die.

Surviving means proving her continued existence isn’t a mistake–a task her new mentor, Bastian, takes personally. Her abilities place her in the GNW Enforcer division, and partners her with Domino 12, who is eerily human for an alien-parasite psionic hybrid.

After eliminating an Exiled scientist, she discovers nothing is what it seems. With each mission more perilous, Sai must figure out who to trust before her next assignment becomes her last.
