Another chapter, woo-hoo.  This one's a bit shorter and is almost entirely plot expo, but it felt like a satisfying, organic stopping point.  So here it is.

Thanks, Forlin!  ^^  Glad you enjoyed it.  I've got ideas floating around for the next chapter, but haven't put text the the keyboard yet.  I'm usually terribly irregular with the post-times on these things.

Finally caught up on this, and it is so good!  I love seeing the progression of Ossanlin's history.  He's such an intriguing character and this was an intriguing story!

As well as all of the worldbuilding you have put into this.  Your descriptions are amazing!  And I love the characters!  I was so amused when I read the last part dealing with Kirian being promoted LOL and his reaction was priceless.

Looking forward to more!

Thanks Scott.  ^^  Glad you enjoy it.  Sometimes I just have to get the creativity out when the GESB doesn't slake the thirst.  :p

So I have finally caught up on this. That was an intense batch of chapters there o.O I love your characters-- Arkani and Caseel in particular both had me grinning. This is, as always, still riveting to read. I'm very much looking forward to the next chapter ^_^

And another chapter!  Because I'm bored and have literally nothing to do!  Well, nothing I want to do anyway.   :P

Okay, so...almost three-year cliffhanger...dang. ..am I a master of suspense?  DUN DUN DUN....nah, I'm just lazy.  Ba Dum Tish...but in all seriousness, at long last, the conclusion of Chapter 6.

Been awhile since I posted a chapter, but my attention has been demanded by other things of late.  However, the creative juices have been flowing once again, so here it is.  This chapter is going to be a decently-long one, so I've split it up into two parts.  Beware of CLIFFHANGARS!

Could have sworn I replied to this. Anyway, I've got kind of an ambiguous age difference going between the two at the moment (originally, Aetheas was supposed to be an only child playing both roles, but eventually I realized that there was absolutely no way to make that work time-wise, so Emelen was born). Ten-fourteen years sounds entirely reasonable, I think, since the "Sector Nine" scene already in Salem's story would have taken place around the time of Ossanlin's graduation, or within a few years after, and I figure Emelen is probably at least a few years out of the Academy by then if he's got that kind of autonomy within Sector Seven.

Ah...well, I guess I'll have to get a bit farther in my stories then.  :p  Just to clear this up, though...how much age difference is between Aetheas and his brother?  The way I made the reference to Sector 9, it would have to be more than ten years between the brothers, because Ossanlin is about ten years older than Aetheas, and Aetheas's brother would've had to have graduated before Ossanlin for that reference to work.  Let me know if I need to change it...I assumed that his brother was just slightly older than Ossanlin...like a year or two.  Let me know!  :)

Ohh, dueling stories sounds fun. Figuring out how events line up will be interesting, since the portion of Salem's story that takes place at the academy is set several years after Ossanlin's graduation.

And yes, I'm working on being less absent from RAF. I've been bad about that lately.

Indeed!  ^^  I'm all for overlap!  Could do a miniature sort of "dueling-stories" (y'know...like dueling banjos), showing the same events from both points of view.  Fun, indeed.  ^^

I look forward to hearing more from you!  It's been far too long...   >:(     :P    :D    ;)

Alright, Oss's career's takin' off ^_^ And I dunno about OBLIGATED... but I have been writing again. Getting to the point here where there'll be some overlap between Salem's story and Ossanlin's, at least as far as characters and settings are concerned. Ought to be fun.

No worries, Scott.  Thanks for taking the time to read it.  ^^  Honestly your post highlighted something I wasn't aware of...I thought I'd posted the next chapter, but I hadn't.  So I went ahead and put a few finishing touches/edits on it, and here it is.  XD  Now you need to continue Salem's story.  You are OBLIGATED.  :p  Also, please post in Rogue Element when you have the chance...there's a post up from Shen, and Ossanlin will likely be speaking with Aetheas soon about that...thing.  ^^

Gah! I am sorry it took me so long to read this. Loving it, as always ^_^ The 'Sector Nine' reference had me grinning ;D
