Wow, Mr Gryphon's been a busy fellow...

Actually reading it all will be the proof of the pudding, as the saying goes, but as others have noted just seeing the reorganization laid out makes me feel better about it all, it just makes so much sense!

Interesting how The Diqiu Suite is part of both The Legacy of Korra and The Order of the Rose (bye, S5!). You have links to Diqiu from both LoK and OotR, could we have links on the Diqiu homepage back to LoK and OotR? I don't see any - am I overlooking them somewhere?

Other than the bits moved from Prelude to that S4 story, and the renaming of what's left of Prelude to Overture in A Minor, and the consolidation of several previously named stories into the Director's Cut, are the changes to the rest of what was formerly S5 pretty much title changes only? (other than that, how was the play Mrs Lincoln?)

Bordering on amusing/funny is the title of the "next story" after Diqiu Suite in the OotR line: "Technical Difficulties"

Hmm.

So I forgot about that, and when you pointed it out I went and looked at the page to see if I could work a couple of discreet links into it without making too much of a mess. I wasn't really happy with any of my options there...

... so, at long last, I finally went and learned how to use the <map> tag. (This has been the month of new tools for me so far. It's a bit weird.) Just click on the titles of the things that are crossed over in the Dìqiú Suite logo and you'll be whisked off to the appropriate base page.

As far as I can recall, yes. I'll be making a few small fixes to the earlier bits of OOTR as I record the audio, because I always run across some minor errors I missed before when I do that, but there have been no scene edits or other significant content changes.

Heh, that's actually a complete coincidence. That's what that story's been called since it was originally going to be a Mini. (It's the "B'Elanna Joins the CorpsKlingon Navy" side story.)

Hooboy, now that's going to be a real fasten-your-seatbelts wild ride. So many good stories have come out in the last little while I'd forgotten all about where B'Elanna went. Although... isn't there a brief scene somewhere of her talking to Utena about wanting to be involved in the Tau Ceti excitement?

Thinking back to her last bit of dialogue with Zargh, I hope she doesn't have to perform too much percussive maintenance on the crew...

Correction: While recording the audio for Ash Knight, I decided to tack the Mini-Story Matalde the Red (written four years after the fact, but set immediately afterward and pertaining to one of its key events) onto the movement as a post-credits sequence. Neither the movement nor the Mini have been significantly edited, I just spliced them together, and both text and audio now reflect this.

There's a code error in Ash Knight. I think it's at the splice point where the mini went in - a "<" sign is missing I think. Here's the code around that point to help you search it:

<p>After a moment, Shuten straightened and took his hand away from his side, and his eyes burned with an inner fire all their own.</p>

<p>div class="timestamp"><p>Friday, February 19, 2410<br>
Asgard</p>

<p>Corwin and Anne were eating breakfast and trying to figure out which of Asgard's sights to hit that day when there came a knock at the door.</p>

That's nowhere near the splice, but it was broken. I guess I'm like Microsoft now and beta-test things by shipping them. Thanks.

Think of it as encouraging community involvement.

Altered Appleseed isn't in the new chronology list. Removed in error or sent to the dust bin?

Can I notice long enough to applaud the removal? The script format grates on me in general, but it really bugs me here, because I'm used to finding the stories in third-person, or the occasional first-person. I like the intent of Altered Appleseed, but the presentation was unappealing.

Also, I imagine you could write the story again, hit the most important plot points, and make it much better if you really needed to.

I wouldn't mind seeing an episode of Lensman: The Brave and the Bold produced in script format.

There's actually a trick to writing in script if you're not actually writing a script. Once you realize that, you can get a lot done with it; as a format, it is best deployed if you're writing something that's heavily dialogue-dependent with a lot of meta-humor in it, in which traditional prose transitions would actually get in your way and hinder the story.

I'd never try it for a serious piece, tho.

That was actually the script written by a film student in Olympus before the Olympus Fall/Earth Alliance Restructuring before the War of Corporate Occupation. Inexplicably, it got made into a made-for-TV movie, hence the major historical inaccuracies. It sometimes turns up on the late-late-late-late-night movie channel in various broadcast zones.

You know, I think it was a year ago that I suggested that S5 should be re-organized on the grounds that it had wandered off-spec.

I... didn't see something like this ever happening, tho.

I applaud the curation! Curation is important; a lot of people don't bother and their stuff becomes a mess.
