Those names were important to Sam.  Corran her brother, and I think we discussed Alia before it was decided.  But that vision was specific to Sam & Marcus, so probably not

Daughter has had 102-103 fevers for three days now.  Had to take off work to take care of her.  Will try to get my post up once she's better.  Sorry again for the delay.

Isn't adulting FUN!

Prayers that your daughter's fever breaks, and that she will be back in good health soon.

Thanks Gavin, here fever broke this morning.  I've sent you my intro paragraphs as a show of good faith that I'm working on it.

Gavin, rough draft in the private chat.  Let me know what you think.  Changed up the dynamic a little.  Instead of wife and kids, its sister and niece.  I was writing the story in my head, and just couldn't get past that if Marcus' wife and children died that he's just go off with the NRI, or that if his kids survived…he'd abandon them.  I was having a really hard time with that future aspect of the story, and decided to go this way.  Dunno, makes it better in my head I guess.

Let me know what you think

Some good ideas in your post, Marcus. I don't think I've read about holonet dating sites in any of the literature.

Oh, and Marcus? Are you going to post a follow-up, where you arrive in town and receive the warning about danger afoot? Or do you want me to post next?

Thanks Gavin, yeah I've read a few things about subnets, and it felt like that was a natural "app" destination for like . galaxy version of Match.com or what have you.

I can post next, but it's probably not going to be till thursday or the weekend at the earliest.

You know Marcus, re-reading your post, it suddenly occurred to me that when you were giving Mabby the reasons why she shouldn't see her boyfriend Ben anymore, you ticked off the reasons using High Galactic: A, B, etc. I wonder if it would look more interesting if it were in given Aurabesh: Aurek, Besh, Cresh, etc.

Realizes that Gavin's knowledge far outweighs his own…

I think another interesting thing to show would be the difference in the use of calendars. Marcus might accidentally use the Galactic Standard, when a majority on Safehaven use the Tapani calendar–with some even using some strange one that refers to a "Saturday".

Galactic Standard                      Tapani

Primeday                                  Atunda
Centaxday                                Katunda
Taungsday                                Satunda
Zhellday                                   Datunda
Benduday                                 Natunda

Apologies, haven't even started on the post yet.  Mother in law and sister in law came in for visit on 1 day notice.  Literally zero time.

Hey Gavin,

Haven't forgotten about the post, just been insane with work and family last week.  Baby crawling, and new hire at work that I have to train.

Anyway.  I'm travelling starting sunday.  So i'll have no family and no work to distract me, and will be able to write my post without issue.  Should be up by monday.
