Steve, you certainly create a narrative that weaves a complex tale. I sometimes have to go back several posts and reread them before reading the new ones so that I know what's going on!

That's exactly what I do with movies I've watched part of and gotten too sleepy to finish. Even when I come back to the movie the next day, I'll run it back 15 or 20 minutes to make sure I'm following the narrative.

And sometimes I just start over from the beginning! Cool

I hear ya' Bud. I'm writing the darn thing and I sometimes need to go back and re-read earlier images to refresh my memory of events.

Sometimes I edit the earlier image to make it better dovetail with subsequent events.

It's a gas man!
Cool

Ah-ha! I knew it!

I thought I was going nuts! When I've gone back from time to time, as I described, I'd be surprised to see pictures that looked different than I remembered.

I thought I was loosing my mental faculties! Shocked

Of course, that doesn't prove I'm NOT loosing them, it just proves I was right when I thought I was wrong, as opposed to being wrong when I thought I was right!

Yep, that does prove it. They're going fast. Sad

I'd like to contribute to your photo novel by providing soundtrack music which the members can enjoy while reading your story. I've done this on several of my threads. Very Happy

Just click on the link below and let the music play in a separate tab-or-window while reading the story. The total time for all the separate selections is a little over 30 minutes.

It really adds to the enjoyment! Very Happy

That's funny! Nice that you've been paying attention Bud. I'm flattered. By the way, I just added a new image to my last image posting. I call it "Nixon and the Blip".

Love the idea for listening to music as you go thru the thread. I've been doing something similar with Disturbed's "Immortalized" soundtrack. Only I play a slideshow of the album on Flickr! as the music blares in my headphones. It's awesome the way the music and the images sync up - a nice bit of serendipity!

I'll have to listen to the soundtrack you linked to and see what that's like! Maybe it will inspire my next installment!

Thanks so much for all your support, suggestions, and comments Bud!

I haven't had a mentor (or tor-mentor) in a long time. Feels nice! Very Happy

Au contraire, mon amie!

Not a mentor, just a fan!

As for the music, I think you'll find that at a modest volume it underscores the mood perfectly. I listened to a YouTube video of "Immortalized", and for me it just didn't seem to have the right flavor for a Star Trek story.

I could say that I'm too old to be inspired while listening to hard rock, but I actually started working on the concept for The Hero Experience back in 1970 while I was stationed in Ramstein, German, and I had King Crimson's album, In the Court of the Crimson King.

I have the CD now, and I listened to it a few time in 2013 while I was revising The Hero Experience before finally publishing it. To this day I still think of the first track, 21st Century Schizoid Man, as the chase music for the climax in the novel.

This is a cover and not as good as the original, but give it a listen. Cool

21st century Schitzoid Man eh.... that explains a lot! Razz

Seriously though I could see that being great for chase music.

________________________________

At the risk of repeating myself (something you won't mind under the circumstances), I continue to enjoy the way you manage to write dialog that just seems to automatically turn into the voices of the actors when I read it. Very Happy

And this line —

"This spare unit is howling and spitting like a wulver in winter!"

— is pure poetry! That didn't just imitate typical "Scotty-speak", it surpassed it. If James Doohan had ever said that line, it would now be as famous as "Captain, the dilithium crystal can't take much more!"

And for the benefit of any members who might suspect that you made up such a wonderful word as "wulver", Google says this.
____________________________________

The wulver is a kind of humanoid wolf creature that is part of the folklore of the Shetland islands off the coast of Scotland.

In short, ya did grand, laddie! Cool

Thanks Bud! Don't know about poetry but I was pretty satisfied with the Wulver quote for Scotty.

At first I was going to say "Banshee in Rut" but then I checked and saw that a Bansheee was associated with Irish folklore.

And "In rut" was probably too risque for 1960's Star Trek Embarassed so I went with winter instead.

Right now I'm remembering how to channel Christopher Lloyd's speech patterns for the next few images.

I used to do a pretty fair impression of him when I was a teenager. Still do... Laughing

Perhaps this will give you useful insights into that honorable Klingon's true nature! Very Happy
