Things are heating up. This is the bloodiest thing I have ever written thus far.
We are heading towards the end of this particular story which I have been posting periodically since 2015. Sorry for the delays, but we’re heading to the end.
Much of this has been, I hope, a more quiet kind of story. Well, the action here is ramping up. Lots of blood in this one.
This is, by far, the most careful writing I have ever done. I have edited this chapter, I would say, with more care and attention than anything I have ever written. That includes my papers in college.
This chapter brings together several of the original characters I have created who have not yet met. In a very important way.
Jeet Syllba, the Bounty Hunter, has found his target. And he finds it won’t be entirely easy for him.
Luke also is in the Force and the Dark Side. Also available on fan-fiction.net, but permanently hosted through GoogleDocs.
I’ll just leave this link here.
This “live” suit is a proof of concept of something which I have written into my fiction as an “overskin.” My concept of it was based on the real-life research behind just this type of thing. I explained this in the Star Wars story as the black, lycra-like suit that Stormtroopers wear underneath their armor.
In my fiction, a version of this not only has engineered bacteria, but also theoretical engineered silicon-based nano forms and long-strand polymers. The suit not only literally eats the sweat and oil from the wearer’s skin, but expands and contracts to compensate for fluctuations in atmospheric pressure or puncture wounds on the skin.
It’s interesting to see theoretical and fictional concepts get tangible.
