  ETA on the next Chapter?
January 22, 2016 1:39:42 PM    View the profile of Valthir 
I apologize if I'm jumping the gun a bit, but is there any ETA on Chapter 10, Talon? Maybe having not really posted on the Revival story gives me the wrong perspective, but it looks a little . . . directionless? 123 posts is fucking fantastic, but it seems to be getting a little unwieldy. I literally have zero idea of who is running the story or if anyone even is.

Like I said, activity is great, but structure and guidance is also pretty great as well. A non-canon story is a good way to cut loose and just write to shake off the rust, but eventually we need to step back and start getting some real stories up and going, if even just some small Army/Navy stories.

Stormz and I, as well as others, have been working on a "direction" for things both in the Revival story and as we move towards Chapter 10. The story does not have a singular person in charge, it is a combined effort between Army & Navy thus we are working together towards a common goal (sorta like chapter stories...hint hint...).

I'm not sure if this answered your questions mostly because I struggled to find the question in this topic.

My suggestion is to read the story (which has been excellent thanks to all that have contributed) and join in if you choose. Worrying about things that are going to happen rather than acting in the present where things are happening is just silly.

Think Val was more saying that even a story that isn't canon could use some direction (forgive me if I'm misinterpreting here). Not everyone is wired to just write whatever they feel in this setting. There is some direction (troops on the ground and those weird TIEs...) but even that objective seems a bit vague.

I'm all for freedom and writing whatever. Goodness knows we need to get out of the habit of over structuring. But as someone who likes guidance (even if I choose to break from that structure) it would be nice to have something underneath driving the story so it feels like we have more of an end goal. And this comes from someone who does know what's going on in story even if I can't see the powers at work for whatever ending there might be.

Yes, I totally hear you both. Stormz and I had a convo today and we are setting up squad and squadron stories that will have a leader (SL/SC) and clear direction. All storylines will be helpful as we move towards the ultimate goal of chapter 10.

The chapter will happen, its in the works right now, and there will always be something chapter-like on the horizon. We want to plan things like that, but it's harder to make plans when we are unclear on how active the squads and squadrons are.

It's possible I'm not understanding what's being asked, which is likely. I was most active in the VE during a time when a Chapter was some unobtainable mirage on the horizon so perhaps I don't understand the desperate need to cling to its existence.

If anyone else from HC would like to chime in and clarify maybe that would help.

Like everyone in this thread, I'm not sure exactly what we're talking about, but I think maybe what the concern is (Val, please chime in if I'm misinterpreting) is that the Chapter that's in progress isn't a typical Chapter?  Like, we're not continuing the ongoing saga (the same story that's been going since the club's inception), but rather Chapter 10 is going to be something of a reboot/retcon/jump forward in time/something is changing?

I agree that we could all probably afford to relax a little about the details and just enjoy writing more no-strings-attached run-ons, like Revival.  But I understand the concern (again, if I'm interpreting it correctly) that the VE's shared setting is being changed/adjusted in unknown ways, so it's tough to get motivated to invest time and effort writing posts now, that might not "count" once we see the changes to the shared setting that Chapter 10 brings about.

First: am I assuming correctly, Val?  Second: Regardless, Chapter 10 is coming ASAP, and in the meantime both divisions are starting small unit stories for us to focus on.  So let's jump into those!

I'm as far as I am going to get in the story. I need to type up some notes and then I can kick it out the door. Sunday at the latest? I'll try for earlier than that.

Excellent!  Both divisions have stories going in the meantime, but I know we're all eager to jump into Chapter 10, Talon.  Thanks!
