"'nother preview, read it and weep... "
 
   This one's from Entr'acte: The Courtship of Princess Dessler, which I'd say is 80-90% complete. And it's so out of context it's not even funny. Well, actually it is.


Garon and Devlin spent the evenings talking about this and
that, getting to know each other better, putting away a bit more of
the Saurian brandy. On Wednesday night, Devlin actually lost track of
his intake enough to get rather pleasantly pissed; Garon, knowing that
Corimel was on duty and that he could clear himself out in a few
seconds if he needed to, modulated his trick liver to achieve a
similar state for parity's sake, at which point their conversation
swerved into strange, uncharted territories.
Devlin earnestly strove to impress upon Garon that, back on
Earth, Amanda's attitude toward her brother (and vice versa) would be
considered more than just a skosche odd - that it was in fact a -crime-
in most places on Earth, including the one he came from and the one he
lived in now - but that he, Devlin Edison Carter, was a high-minded
enough, nay, galactically cosmopolitan enough, individual that, if it
didn't bother either of the Desslers, it flaming well wouldn't bother
him either, by God! Devlin Carter, he declared, was a big enough
fellow to share the woman he loved with her own brother, if that was
what she wanted.
Garon accepted this magnanimous declaration with the grave
gratitude it deserved, and replied that he held precisely the same
opinion regarding his sister's liaisons with a certain Earthman,
which, though not actually illegal on Gamilon, would certainly be
considered every bit as weird there as would Garon and Amanda's
relationship be on Earth. Furthermore, and to wit, Garon announced
that he, Garon Tultalian Dessler, felt that Devlin Carter was a damned
fine individual, even if he -was- a somewhat curious color, and if he
ever felt adventurous enough to try that sharing in real time, as it
were, Garon would be pleased to broaden his horizons.
We can only speculate as to how Devlin would have reacted to
this remarkable offer, for at that particular moment, he lostwhat
little remained of his consciousness.
On Thursday, he remembered very little of the aforementioned
conversation, which was just as well, and spent much of the afternoon
regretting having ever decided to become a drummer.

Gryph ... if that little piece is any indication, it looks like that piece of SOS will be another great one.

And am I smoking crack on this, or does Devlin remind anyone else of DJ Croft?

Put down the crack pipe. DJ wouldn't get completely snockered on brandy with a Gamilon.

I'm uncertain what he WOULD do in the situation, though.

I don't really know if you are smoking crack or not but, to me, it looks like you are.

Or standing up for his friends. It was that scene in Prof Harris's class in Duelists of the Rose that prompted said mental comparison. Then again, I tend to have some bizzare mental associations.

Mm... well, they have similar accents, so I suppose there's a certain similarity when they're doing things like being indignant.

Nah, that's not a bizzare mental association, a bizzare mental association is when somebody says "Extrapolation" and the word "Pen" springs into your mind

My geometry teacher in high school was a young guy and one of the wrestling coaches for the school, but he was pretty cool. On one of the tests (mid-term, maybe? Can't remember) one of the questions interspersed between all the geometry junk was:

"What is the difference between a duck?"

It was multiple choice, with 4 choices, and for the life of me I can't remember what they were, save the one I picked--and I found out after the test the one that my best friend chose as well, which made it eternally the answer to the question, which was, of course, "The War of 1812".

That wasn't a weird mental asociation, that was an overdose of crack.

My best freind and I, needing to fill up some time during a drive from moss beach to vegas (13.5 hours, with a heavy foot) started playing random assosiation games. (Round hour 8.) We were both over caffinated and underslept, so it seemed normal that weirdness would ensue. Well, after an hour or so of this, we changed the game. I say A word and C word. He makes up B word, and uses that as A word for his response. Points delivered are completely arbitrary. This makes for odd combinations however. trying to explain this game, and the thought process required to mundanes is fun though.

Damn it, first the preview and now this! Do you know how hard it is to keep quiet around here when you lot keep pulling stunts like this?

Nice to see a focus on Devlin and Amanda though.
