Second Gate: Chapter Twenty-Two

Posted in Updates on July 26, 2010 by chemiclord

We learn that Rumil might just have a bit of a crush in Chapter Twenty-Two.

We also learn she’s not a particularly good liar, not that it would help much now that she seems to be surrounded by psionics on an unidentified planet somewhere beyond the Galactic Rim.

What’s more sad; that she’s attached herself to Timothy because he’s the most genuinely caring and genuinely decent male figure she’s met in her life… or that she’s right?

Perhaps I should give my characters nicer back stories.  It’s almost cruel where they tend to come from.

Second Gate: Chapter Twenty-One

Chapter Twenty-One is here!

Hey, it’s that Dewin guy again.  Funny how he keeps turning up at just the right moment.

Bah, it’s probably just coincidence.

Meanwhile, you may notice that the Solarians and the Kiros suddenly agree that Rumil pretty much has to die.  This is something I’ve noticed about different factions or denominations of religions.  The only thing they hate more than each other is someone that might pose a threat to their bloated construct of money and power.

Nope, still not much free time, and still a busy-busy bee; with work (how I make actual money), and along with a special super secret project I can’t tell anyone about (it’s a secret), and with other various projects that aren’t quite so secret (like putting together story boards for future books in this series), I’m pretty much booked from now until forever.

See ya next Monday.

Second Gate: Chapter Twenty

Chapter Twenty.

Sorry that I don’t have much of wit to say.  Kinda busy juggling a few different things that are eating up my time and processing space.

See ya all next Monday!

Second Gate: Chapter Nineteen

So, yeah… funny story involving a neighbor’s quite possibly illegal in the state of Michigan fireworks, and the satellite I use for internet access.

Apparently the two don’t mix very well.

Anyway, while belated, here is Chapter Nineteen.

We finally see the ancestral homeworld of the Erani, in Kiros.  Justin proves to be a slightly more amiable host than Timothy (I know, I’m surprised by this too)… but as you can imagine, there’s a little friction when a Solarian Knight drops in unannounced.
