I taught myself to read at 4 years of age because I was impatient. I decided the available books were not the story I wanted to read, and wrote a story, at 5.
It was pretty awful.
I mean, I was five, that's not going to be a coherent plot anyhow! But still. It was awful. I was astounded to realize that good stories don't just burst off the page because I apply a crayon. I went back to reading for a while, but sometimes I was looking at what made one book a good read while another was merely a way to pass the time.
Here we are, twoscore and change years later, and I think I am starting to really grasp how a plot is different from a narrative which is not the same thing as a roughly chronological sequence of scenes?
Building worlds certainly makes for a better story!
 
My native language is American English, with several regional contributions as I moved around a lot in my early years. I can communicate tolerably well in a couple of other languages, if the other converser is patient and of good cheer. I'm familiar with several specialized vocabularies in the greater category "Nerd" and I know the responsibility for being understood is mine.
(I also sometimes have trouble understanding spoken words because I'm missing a bit of the hearing register in the middle. Maybe that's why I use the "Maximum Verbosity" setting in written communication! Sorry.)

Phases

by Elektra Kaur

Ninjas in green led by a woman in blue come to announce that they are taking the Bell away from Madame Von Brandenburg. They scorn each other and part-chameleon minions all in white suddenly separate from the wall.
 
Meanwhile all of Madame Von Brandenburg's scientist minions are putting on black gloves trimmed in yellow.
 
I link my electromagnetic phase to the Bell's and try to teleport. Succeed! But only to a nearby hallway.
 
While I try to update my Team Leader on what I have learned, a man with darkness powers (???) tries to steal the Bell in the name of something called "SHADE".
 
I reconnect to the Bell and am dragged away with it into the pool of darkness!
 
Since I am having trouble with teleportation, I try extending my Electric Being field around "my body", which is the Bells and possibly the network between them. The device on the side of the Bell is a transdimensional locator. Something has already received a signal. Ohhhhh dear.
 
Archaeopotamus in the grass below the building is having things to do with all the men of this team but I am not coming out of phase.
 
A jackal man is in fact Mr. Von Brandenburg!
 
I wonder if I am better connected to the Bell?
 
I wonder if I can summon all of "myself" into this space so that we can be One and we can focus and could try to reach an enlightened state of being together.
 
... I have all of the Bells appearing here in "mushroom circle" form ...
 
Team Leader Agent Chameleon wants to know if I can take all of the Bells to another dimension, using the Stargates inside them, where they will be out of reach.
 
I take a deep breath.
 
"Yes. I can."
 
I pass the Blue Ring to a courier -- Loki, on the advice of Psypher; Loki, God of Stories, who will see this woman's story with the ring to a proper start.
 
I ask Captain Fel for an image of the coordinates for the far away place where the Thanagarians came from. This is a spot that fits most of our requirements: no one is there, it will do the one who answered the signal no good in coming to Earth, it will not increase the danger to Earth, it will bring almost all of the Bells far out of reach of all the villains. Captain Fel has an easier time connecting me to his ship first, which can act as a relay.
 
SO MANY ATTACKERS arrive right now!
 
I have to concentrate to ignore the combat for a few seconds before I can move us to the Endupaar in a very bright flash of light.
 
Loki shuts that portal down.
 
I get ready to go through. Captain Fel is asking me again if I am sure.
I am about to transmit when Sahara suddenly asks about putting the transdimensional locator into Saturn's gas cloud and then MOVE the Endupaar. What a nifty idea! Agent Chameleon detaches the locator from the large Bell and they put it in a little probe and send it away.
 
Agent Chameleon decides everyone will go to Thanagar, and guard me from interference while I settle and try to detach the Bells from me (and vice versa) throughout the magnetosphere of the planet. Agent Chameleon then instructs me on what to look for as I examine the magnetosphere, and when I am disconnected he has us go back through the gate to the Endupaar.
 
When it is done, Captain Fel says he can return us to Matumaini.
 
Did we not still have people to rescue?
 
We get back to Matumaini and the crystal pillars are all glowing blue-white.
 
Loki tries to fix it with his Tesseract cube, says "Oh my," and disappears. He tells Sahara that he thinks General Zod is free of King Solovar's prison.

We've been using the Dicelog since almost 2 hours ago, only I can't see MY rolls or ANYBODY ELSE'S rolls. Even though I am using the same browser as 3 of 4 other people logged into session. Time for a bug report!

03:39 am - 10.08.2019

House Call

When the Jeep parks in the garage at the Von Brandenburg complex, it then sinks down into the bedrock on a concealed platform. Clear doors slide shut above us. Once we have truly arrived, Dr. Von Brandenburg addresses me as "Agent Elektra" (which is not [...

02:52 am - 10.08.2019
