X-Wing: Rogue Squadron, Chapter 23, Part 1

z: Hello, gentlebeings, and welcome to Chapter 23 of Rogue Squadron, wherein Corran has visitors.

Over here on Earth, elections happened in the USA with mixed, but generally positive, results. Both Will and I are still recuperating from our respective high-effort periods earlier this year. In my case at least, the recuperation involves things like having four rehearsals in the five weekdays of this week, because our Fall Season concert is next weekend, on the 18th. So it goes.

will: I, on the other hand, am about to take a couple of days off and relax. Whee.

I’d point out that Z asked to take the lead this week, by the way. Something about this being a change of pace from the rehearsals she mentioned.

z: Yes, I did in fact need a distraction from my distractions–long story–and Will carried more than his share of the weight during the Album Saga, so.

X-Wing: Rogue Squadron, Chapter 22

z: Hello, gentlebeings, and welcome to Chapter 22 of Rogue Squadron, wherein Kirtan Loor forms some theories on the utilitarian approach to life.

In personal news, oh hey it’s November. I think we have a concert or something in two weeks. No big deal.

(Yes, I am broken.)

will: Me, I’m just exhausted. I survived the worst, but now I could use about five years of recuperation.

But eh, I’ll take what I can get.

X-Wing: Rogue Squadron, Chapter 21, Part 2

will: Welcome back, readers! *yawn*

One more week and I’ll be done with my worst work month of the year.

z: And then he’ll remember this thing called “sleep.” And maybe I will, too.

Last week we finished mastering the album, last weekend it went out to the printer, this Wednesday I had a massive proposal deadline, and oh on Tuesday I had my naturalization application interview and I had my naturalization ceremony today so that happened.

…yeah, maybe I will.

X-Wing: Rogue Squadron, Chapter 21, Part 1

Hello, gentlebeings, and welcome to Chapter 21 of Rogue Squadron, wherein heroics.

In personal news…















…as of Tuesday night, so you’d think I would be relieved, and possessing of some new and shiny Free Time, yes? Hate to disappoint you, but… (Yes, I know you aren’t the actual ones disappointed here. Denial, I has it.)

But also: The Album Is Done. As in I made an actual album of music with a symphony orchestra done. I’m still not settled into this new state of being.

will: Things have continued to be pretty exhaustingly busy for me too. Several nights this week I was up until past 1AM for work. Oh well, it’ll all be over soon.

X-Wing: Rogue Squadron, Chapter 20, Part 1

z: Hello, gentlebeings, and welcome to Chapter 20 of Rogue Squadron, wherein plans and a funeral.

will: No weddings though.

z: In personal news, Will was due for the busiest month of the year at his work anyway and then extra Interesting hit there, and as for me… let’s not say anything even. So if you get chapter commentaries that seem a bit short or distracted, bear with us until the end of this month, dear reader.

will: Nothing bad, just extra workload on top of workload.

So yeah, we might be both rushed, and also, might split chapters more often than previously.

z: Hello, gentlebeings, and welcome to Chapter 19 of Rogue Squadron, wherein we continue the with the dealing.

In personal news… not sick any more, thankfully, and fighting only one deadline this week, but it’s a doozy so… oh well.

will: I’m at the top of the rollercoaster, about to begin the descent. I’ll still be here, but I may be a bit more subdued until November.
