Anydrus: Introduction Part 1
Author's Note
When I began writing this account, nearly five years ago, I was reminded of a phrase I had heard while growing up; "Whatever your personal demons, do not make the mistake of putting them on paper." This remained in the back of my mind constantly as I wrote. Though my primary source was my personal journal from the time, coupled with the personal accounts of others who served with me, I have sought to expunge my irrelevant musings and leave the reader with an account of the events as experienced by one man.
I sought to author an account of this, the Great Western American Rebellion, as I saw it. This is not meant to be an exhaustive history of the entire conflict, nor is it expected to be without bias. In the years since the war ended, innumerable books have been written that meet such criteria. Rather, I hoped to offer a more human perspective.
Far too often our ideas about war and history are shaped by the abstract, leaving society detached and uncomprehending. In this v

SS Advance
Chapter 1
She eyed the vampire warily. It may have saved the captain’s life, but bringing it aboard was a mistake.
“I will show you to your quarters” she said shorty, before turning around and walking out into the corridor. There was no need to check if it was following, the creature’s cold presence was readily apparent in a constant chill she felt behind her.
She led the vampire out of the chartroom and forward down the narrow corridor to a small stairwell just before the door to the bridge. As the two climbed down the stairs to the lower deck, the ship rolled heavily to port. A small smirk crossed her face as she heard the vampire behind her grunt as it was thrown against the wall.
Despite its difficulty in coping with the high seas, the young woman and her charge quickly made their way down the passage aft, passing cabin doors. The steady chugging of the engine sent deep vibrations through the dimly lit interior corridor. Few of the lamps were burning, leavin

Personal Quote: "I like to give my writing a bit of that 'okie timbre."


Right, it has been some time since my last entry (about two years I believe). While I have been browsing DA in the inter-term, I have not been active in any other sense. A friend finally got me engaged again. As part of a challenge between us, I have begun a new story titled "SS Advance" that I hope to continue. I also reposted "Anydrus" as a prose piece, rather than a picture (thank you again Mars). I may continue it at some point as I have a few story ideas in mind. Lastly, there is the very remote possibility that I will actually follow through on the pledge to author an ME 2 bit from Tali's perspective. We shall see.

Haven't seen/heard much from you recently. How's things goin'?
Colonel-Kovalyov Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
Things are well. I received an offer to serve as a guest lecturer at University here in the United States, so I have been busy moving recently. Once I have gotten settled, I will doubtless be more active than I have been.
