    magusfang got a reaction from Kurahieiritr in Why Do We Hate Mary Sue?   
    I like Sue/Stu's, but they have to be done right or they become to predictable. What is fun is to build a character like Mary Sue and then slowly reveal flaws and weaknesses, let the reader slowly discover that the character isn't as perfect as the she/he seemed at first blush. That way you show that your character isn't perfect, just better at hiding their flaws...that makes them real because that's what we all do obsess over flaws, either real or percieved, and try to deperately hide them from others

    hello everyone, been awhile, sorry about that but my family keeps me pretty busy. So Lis is with Kari in recovery and our girl is doing fine, the surgeon found a few more problems when he got in there but isn’t that how it always works? So the repairs went well, she got 20 cc’s of cadaver bone, three metal plates and 24 titanium screws, the surgeon is very happy with the results and she did very well and if she does’t have any significant pain, swelling, or bleeding during the night we get to take her home in the morning.
    She’s still in the recovery room waking up but her docs tell me she should be back here in her room within the hour, she’ll be groggy and grumpy but I’ll rest easier when I can see her. Don’t worry, she’ll probably be on later to tell everyone all about it LOL, and of course it’ll be all my fault.

    Hey, just so everyone knows I’m still alive, just been occupied with real world problems, sorry for the delay but writing again so hopefully it won’t be too long.
    And wow, ok I’ll try and answer what I can
    1) the timeline is a bit screwy and vague because I meant to insinuate he went around the horn.
    Yep and thats why they flew, again probably need to address that but I just kind of left it to the reader O2 generation wasn't the main problem, it was CO2 removal which is done with scrubbers, it was the scrubbers that failed. one way to combat that is to add pure O2 to try and normalize the ratio. The sub has tracks, kind of like a large tank so it gets as close to shore as it can then creeps in on tracks true water expansion is faster than sound waves under water but thats for water under pressure. This would be an explosion at the bottom of the ice shelf with him well below the explosion. The wave propagation will slow as it travels into denser water. And remember Legion is an avatar so wherever there is a large enough collection of nannies, say some Max brought with him, he can download himself and group the nannies as a body. Also the reason he didn’t just kill everyone with nannies is that Max wanted to find out who was behind the attacks before he started killing people. it takes the nannies time to infiltrate, time they didn’t quite have And finally its a sic fi so because LOL

    But it's the twisty turntable plot that's so much fun, besides its where I exile stray plot bunnies like “runaway crack whore mom comes back to make piece with the daughter she left behind ten years ago” it's just a little too movie of the week for a book and too sappy for a one shot so add it here, throw in a little murder and mayhem, not to mention a few robots, and presto bingo magico we have a subplot

    Hi everyone, I figured Kari would spread the news quickly, nice to see her smile without the worry in her eyes, this has been pretty hard on her. I appreciate all the well wishes and yes I am pretty happy about today’s appointment as well. So the good news is the cancer’s growth has not only been arrested but the MRI showed a 15 to 20 percent reduction in tumors. What that means is with monthly treatments there is a very good chance I can live a normal life span without further surgery, which is fine by me, getting tired go getting opened up, though only I need one more surgery to hit 25  well still need my back fixed LOL.
    Been writing again, and just posted SITG chapter 20.
    Things have been going pretty well here last month or so, making me a little paranoid but we can use the good news around here, been pretty dark times this last year. Thank God for Angi or I think we’d have all gone nuts. Nothing like a baby to keep you grounded and moving forward. So all in all, things are very good here and I hope everyone is doing as well, thanks again everyone.

    Hey all, doing good, can't be bad since literally everyone is watching me like a hawk, even Monkey is getting all maternal lol it's hard not to just scoop her up when she scolds me lol
    so slogging away at the next chapter of shadows, going slow but still going,  Since Kari started working we haven't had much writing time, hate that she went back to work but she just wasn't ready to quit, oh well.
    kids are good, Mouse is crawling and even taking her first shaky steps, kids moves like greased lightening now, kind of worried about when she gets up on two feet LOL she is definitely going to be trouble but she's a godsend, makes me get up even when I don't want to, she has definitely made all this crap easier to take.
