Title: Paragon Prince -- Ossanlin's Story
Post by: Luke Skywalker (Ossanlin) on July 17, 2013, 03:49:31 PM
Okay, so.  Most of you guys probably don't know me that well as I stick almost exclusively to the Animorph's RPG thread where I administrate the Rogue Element (http://animorphsforum.com/index.php?topic=9515.0) role-playing thread, and help mod the GESB (http://animorphsforum.com/index.php?topic=7954.0) role-playing thread.  But I have decided to make a serious attempt at writing out the "pre-roleplaying" portion of my primary character's history.

My primary character, the one I've been playing as since Kimmeree's Anichat (over ten years of role-playing history).  He's very well-developed and as much a part of my identity as my own sense of self.  Not that I get confused about who I am...  XD  I just mean that he's as organic as a character can get now.  He lives and grows through experiences and nearly writes himself into the RP's in which I participate.  Scottluminator has inspired me with his remarkable story-telling involving his character's history, so I figure it's time I take the time to actually write and flesh out the parts of Ossanlin's life that haven't been role-played.

Please be a little forgiving involving canon.  I haven't read the Animorphs series for over ten years, and I sometimes write without doing a lot of research.  I will be inventing a lot of details regarding the Andalites and some of their settlements, facilities, culture (what hasn't already been laid out by K.A.), military, government, etc.  I have already invented some new pieces of Andalite technology as well as the Mark III "Dreadnought-Class" Dome ship (the type that Lumy included in his chapter 8 ), new Andalite military ranks and belt-badge insignia for each rank, and bridge officer classifications/stations.  Descriptions of the new technology and links to the other things I've "invented" (including poorly-done drawings of the Mark III Dome Ship and Andalite belt-badge rank insignia) can be found here (http://animorphsforum.com/index.php?topic=9502.msg748056#msg748056), if anyone is interested in looking.

I will probably include a little table of contents with this post (like Lumy did), when/if it becomes necessary.  I hope someone will find this interesting, but even if no one does, it helps me to develop the Andalite world into a larger reality in my own mind.  Thanks for looking/reading.   :)

~I decided after the fact to post this portion as its own chapter...I have a bunch more written, but I felt it was getting too long and this had a good stopping point written in already.  Thus, new chapter is posted.  The next will likely be fairly quick in coming, though I make no promises.  (It's mostly-written already, but you never know with me).

Woo! New chapter and the potential for more soon! I'm loving finding out about Ossanlin's past. This is awesome ^_^

Well thanks, Scott...glad you like it.  Of course it was, once again, your outpouring of quality fiction that spurred me to continue with this effort, so you deserve some of the credit.   :)

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

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.  ^^

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.
Title: Re: Paragon Prince -- Ossanlin's Story
Post by: Luke Skywalker (Ossanlin) on January 10, 2014, 08:32:55 PM
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    ;)

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.

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!  :)

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.

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!

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.

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