X-Wing: Rogue Squadron, Chapter 30, Part 1

z: Hello, gentlebeings, and welcome to Chapter 30 of Rogue Squadron, wherein preparation and philosophizing.

In personal news, I have as of this morning published all of the Spring 2019 repertoire online. Meaning I’ve now got time to practice for a small show that we have on Saturday and actually arrange some of the 2028730 pieces of music I’ve on The List–right after I update the small ensemble repertoire…. actually… you know what fuggedaboutit.

will: This is what happens when you volunteer. Or else don’t run fast enough.

z: I did have a break! I played an entire computer game and the opening of another last week! I promise! Onwards!

will: Excelsior!

(Things here are good. I’m home for this long weekend, alone as my spouse is away for the weekend. Well, I say alone, I have my cat as always.)

X-Wing: Rogue Squadron, Chapter 29

will: Welcome back, readers, to Rogue Squadron, wherein we get yet another scene out of central casting: part 1 of the Gearing-Up Sequence, in this case the briefing and deciding.

Before we dive in, how are you all doing? Things are good here; the New Year celebrations and observances are over, so it’s back to the grindstone. No travel for me to report, at least not for another month, things are quiet here. Soon enough I imagine Z will return from her va-ca-tion.

z: Yes, over the weekend. It’s been a good enough va-ca-tion, at that. I did get some reading and knitting done.

will: Okay, so, you know what they say about the week between Christmas and New Year’s being untimed time? It’s true. Sorry this one went up late. Anyway.

Welcome back, readers, and we hope your Christmas, if you celebrated it, was enjoyable. We’re picking up where we left off with the second half of Chapter 27 of X-Wing: Rogue Squadron, wherein we learn even more about what a massive clusterf–erm, what a mess the first Blackmoon mission was, and maybe, how the second one will work.

z: {quietly sneaks in}

X-Wing: Rogue Squadron, Chapter 27, Part 1

z: Hello, gentlebeings, and welcome to Chapter 27 of Rogue Squadron, wherein old habits dying hard sometimes makes for good intel, if delayed.

In personal news, I’m getting ready for a trip, and a winter break, which is the first break I’ll be taking from doing any orchestra work since I hahahaha I kid I’ll be working from home finalizing repertoire edits and arranging. But hey, at least I’ll be arranging.

will: Also, I just want you to know: for reasons surpassing understanding (actually I think I know, it was basically a dare), Z, who started this week, wrote the whole thing in Comic Sans font.

Meantime, I also get a winter break, as my office is closed from the end of today until after the New Year. Peace, quiet, and sleeping in. Ahhhhhhh.
