A Geeky Gryphon's Origins
« on: January 24, 2017, 02:28:51 AM »
Well, here it is.  My tie-in with Cloak's Memoirs of a RAFian.  Hope it's not too terrible...  :P

CHAPTER ONE

A long time ago, in a city far, far away (from RAF)...

Liking these characters so far, even with how little we've seen of them. Very nice start :)

Excellent read. I'm not just saying that, either. I mean it sincerely.

Of course, I'm wondering why we RAFians haven't heard lf this association . . . ;)

It would make sense that Cloak doesn't -- he doesn't know everything about Earth or the Realm, despite having a near encyclopedic knowledge of species, alien and domestic. Heck, he's even perturbed that Dwellers leave something behind when they die. Then again, Cloak has only been in this Realm for five years or so before the start of "Memoirs".

Thanks! :D

I should probably specify that it's relatively new and not quite in direct geographic proximity to RAF.  RAFians might have heard of it in passing, but probably never interacted with it for reasons that will eventually become clear.  And it's not without its problems, which you may have noticed me oh-so-subtly hinting at. XD

Ah. Then no wonder Cloak hasn't heard of it then.

Here, have another surprise chapter.  Just so you know this is actually going somewhere.  Probably.

Monsieur Étranger will probably be a safer name to use to avoid confusion in the continuity, as there was already a one-off character in Memoirs with that name in #3: "Dark Phoenix". Just throwing it out there.

That's why you have me and others as continuity checkers. :)

When Memoirs was in its infancy, I had Aquilai providing me with that service.

:edit: And, wow, you actually made the Knights like like a somewhat credible threat, rather than treating them like a joke, like I do. Then again, Cloak sees them as such, so . . .

Wow, foreshadowing to a Memoirs book I haven't even outlined yet. Nor have told you about. Talk about serendipity.

I may have perhaps taken a couple hints and inferences...  :3  (also luck)

Excellent chapter, Xeno.

Although, Jerry is practically begging for a "Ben and Jerry's" joke somewhere. . . . ;)

Ah, you put in a song adaptation, too. ;)

One I immediately recognized, too.
