X-Wing: Rogue Squadron, Chapter 33

Hello, gentlebeings, and welcome to Chapter 33 of Rogue Squadron, wherein we go all in… or do we?

In personal news, this is one seriously multithreading week at work and also at the orchestra, and it happens to be the week when Will travels to Capricon…


z: … so we might have a light chapter. Apologies in advance if so.

X-Wing: Rogue Squadron, Chapter 32

z: Hello, gentlebeings, and welcome to Chapter 32 of Rogue Squadron, wherein… doihafta.

In personal news, a mutual friend of Will’s and mine suffered from a significant bereavement this week. We have been trying to help as we are able, and if you have the means and bandwidth (which is by no means a guarantee in this time and day), you can also help, here.

will: In less awful news, I’m warning you now so you have time to arrange it: once again I (though not Z this year) will be at Capricon next weekend, so come on out if you’re in the area for a weekend of fun, panels, and mischief. (Last year, as you may recall, Tim Zahn was one of the guests. This year, the guests include Seanan McGuire and Phil Foglio. So this will be fun.)

X-Wing: Rogue Squadron, Chapter 30, Part 2

z: Hello, gentlebeings, and welcome to the second half of Chapter 30 of Rogue Squadron, wherein more perspective.

In personal news, for once I don’t have anything that I’m rushing for the orchestra. There are some arrangements I could be rushing, but I’m taking a break period of taking it easy because, frankly, I need to recharge.

I know, I know, that was news to me too. Whodathunkit.

will: In the meantime, I actually cashed in one of my “Z owes me a week” chits, not because I’m slammed with work, just…timing meant it would be easier that way. Had a busy week of non-work stuff.

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.
