Free-lance settlers

While the media prefers to show well funded settlers like capitol's pioneers, imperial's conquistadors and bauhaus' homebuilders as the people making the borders of humanity grow, that is far from the truth. The vast majority of all new settlements founded are not directly funded by the mega corporations but freelance or minor corporation ventures. And while life is hard for all settlers, at least the megacorporation's own are dropped with the expectation that they will live, the same cannot be said for the freelance settlers, greedy minds long ago realised that the one thing the solar system had no shortage of were desperate people, and freelance settling ventures often drop colonials on barely terraformed asteriods and moons, or in deep wilderness with little more than the clothes on their back. Should the venture succeed then the freelancers own the colony, should it fail the most expensive investment was the transport. But by placing many colonies at the same time that cost can be reduced greatly. The fact that they work so many colonies at the same time means that the people behind these ventures are often sloppy when it comes to backgroudn checks on the colonials, and it's far from uncommon that some of the colonials go mad and butcher everyone in the new settlement. That like dark legion raids, starvation and diseases is seen as a price of doing business rather than as an actual problem. And since there's such a rampart overpopulation in the inner solar system's megacities the cartel and the major corporations look the other way. And the ever growing poverty means that people are still lining up for the recruitment offices.

I said once that I thought the mutant chronicles universe had a lot in common with the Firefly one, and based on that similarity I wrote this text, not sure if you can call it a story. But it sets the mood.

Writer's Challenge #3

Lo folks ok so the third writer's challenge has been up for 4 days and I haven't started yet, haven't even posted it here yet, I may get some writing done for it on Sunday. But for now I'll post the challenge. As always it's totally open for anyone to jump aboard.

"Hm, not quite two per week so far, not even one. Well, we're writing in all cases more than in the past, hopefully, the tempo will increase gradually.

Here, anyway,writer's challenge # 3:

1. The story should be written in Swedish or English
2nd The story should be at least 1500 words.
3rd The story must include the following three components, again taken from the WCG on Seventh Sanctum.

     The story ends on a wrecked ship.
     The story takes place in the late morning.
     During the story, a famous person goes missing.

A Seventh Sanctum challenge again, with about as much complexity.

My contribution to the challenge can probably be delayed a while, at worst,  until early next week.

Until then,

Auf Wiedersehen!

The obvious problems here is to fit 1500 words into one late morning, so I'll just have the story begin or end in the late morning.
Ship can either be a classic sea going vessel or in a sci-fi a spaceship. And from my (far from perfect) grasp at English a wrecked ship doesn't (have to) mean ship wreck either.
Oh and famous person I'm going to at least for now assume that is famous in setting because I don't like writing about real people unless I have a lot of time to do research. Imay leave things out, and add embellishment to history but I really hate to state untruths.

Oh and I've also tried updating the page's looks, I'm not sure I'm satisfied yet but any feedback or ideas would be great.

Well until next time folks.

Writer's Challenge 2:The Brothers Cali

Ok so here's my entry for the second writer's challenge, a gangster drama set in an unspecified (intentionally) city of the US.

It was a strange time, the war had ended but some say another was brewing, some people were left starving, others homeless as their jobs ceases to exist and suddenly the only honourable work some men could find was on the wrong side of the law.
Frank DeLuca was sitting on a crate, at the harbour side, pulling his coat closer around him to keep wark from the wind. Philip Flemmi had told him to meet him there, and Philip was a made man so you listened when Philip Flemmi told you to do something, Frank was nearly falling asleep where he sat he had dozed of twice already he knew he was likely to freeze something of if he actually fell asleep. He was dozing of again when someone knocked his hat of, he looked up to see Philip announce his pressence with a dramatic ”Without a drop of drink and not a donkey in sight” while sitting down on one of the crates.
Frank looked up at him ”Donkey?” he asked while picking up his hat.
”A mule, a carrier, a seller, what? You don't know what I'm talkin' about?”
”A drug dealer?”
”No not those low life pieces of shit! Look bootlegging is just giving people what they want, but drugs that's dirty business, I’m talking about booze” Phillip said with disgust. Frank sighed and reached into his coat and then handed Phillip his hip-flask.
”Go easy on that mac” he said. Phil just gave him a scoff then lifted the flask to his mouth then he started coughing.
”Told you to go easy on it”
”Is this moonshine? Why the fuck would you drink moonshine?”
”Not that easy to get the real McCoy in the inland mac”
”You know suddenly being sober doesn’t seem that bad”
”What are we doing here Phil?”
”We're going to have a talk with Atillo Cali, his brother Joe messed up, and messed up bad”
”Shame I kind of like Joe Cali, sure he's got a loud mouth”
”Everyone does, but this isn’t about his loud mouth though, he messed up way worse this time and now the Don want his blood, but the Calis are family, and you don't just snuff family see”
”I guess”
”You guess? Don't they do manners back where you're from Frank? Look Atillo has a choice here, he can either do the act himself of go and try to beg his brother's mercy with the don, but if he does that he's out”
They heard the sound of walking feet and Atillo Cali appeared around the corner.
”Phil, Frank” he greeted them seriously. Then looked out over the dark waters. ”When the don's enforcer calls me out to a secluded location in the middle of the night, I kind of feel that I may be in trouble for something” He said not looking at them, Frank thought he got it, Atillo was a family member a made man, he had been so for ten years and regardless what he had done Philip wasnt going to shoot him in the back. A family member owed to another to explain why and look him in the eye when he died. Treason, even perceived treason could not be forgiven, but in death even a traitor returned to the family. In fact the family saw it as he has died the moment he betrayed them and they were merely collecting the body.
”Not you” Phil said. Atillo turned to face them. He looked surprised, not relieved like a man who had something to hide and had been afraid that they were on to him, more concerned. Then he sighed.
”I'm sorry Atillo but your brother is a moron, his horse keeps losing and now he gone and threatened the bookies, the don can accept him owing him money but not that he threatens people who are paying us for protection”
Atillo sighed again. ”Let's go see my brother”

Joe Cali was staggering towards his car from the pub, he had drunk way to much, he was surprised they'd even let him since everyone knew he was broke. Of course being broke and owing the don money was the reason he was drinking, well that and that he had broken Vincent Sisca's nose, sure Sisca had thrown the first punch but Joe had accused him of cheating which made it a matter of honor for a bookie, and his honor was his livelihood.
Joe staggered up to the car where he had placed it in a vacant lot next to the bar. He heard a sound behind him and saw three men approaching. As they drew closer he recognized one of them as his brother Atillo and felt a moment of relief that was almost instantly squashed when he recognized Philip Flemmi, the don's exucutioner beside him. Any other day Joe would have punched him on the arm and asked who he had buried today but today Joe had a suspicion on who he was supposed to bury.

“Hello Joe” Philip said smoothly, strangely lacking of the usual glee he took before killing a man.
“Phil, Atillo. You know I didn’t mean too”
We know little brother” Atillo sighed
“But it's the don that makes the decisions, I tried telling him you were just stupid, but that excuse only lasts so long” Philip filled in.
“I'll apologize to Sisca! I'll get the Don's money back, my horse...”
Brother, I love you, but that horse can not run.” Atillo said and in one motion drew and fired his gun.

An hour later Atillo Cali, now the only living member of that family, along with Philip Flemmi and Frank DeLuca sat at table at the pub downt he block. Phillip had just ordered in another bottle, he poured it into cups and then sat looking at it, so did Atillo. Frank took the cup and raised it.
To Joe Cali, Boasting and arrogant...” he began
And a drunk” the bartender muttered, he had been less then pleased with knowing that Joe's tab would never be paid for. But Atillo just gave him one look and he was suddenly very busy with something behind the bar.
...and quite wonderful he was!” Frank finished the toast. The other two raised their cups with him.
To Joe Cali” they said. It was a strange time, when brothers killed brothers for family and one could drink to the memory of man one had just killed.

You will notice that out of the three required lines i had every main character say one, Philip said the donkey thing, Atillo the horse thing, and Frank the wonderful thing. Also the movie quote was "but drugs that's dirty business" and that's of course from the godfather where Don Vito shoots down Solozzo's proposal with those words. I was considerign going for "Fredo you're my older brother and I love you, but never take sides against the family again" but then I couldn't have killed the brother and the whole memorial toast couldn't have happened.

Well until next time...

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more!

And then with the first challenge down I'll take on the second challenge which is as follows:

"1. The story should be written in Swedish or English
2. Report must contain at least 20 lines of dialogue.
3. The story must contain a quote from a movie with at least four Oscar nominations. Whether someone in the story actually quoting the movie or if the quote is used in another context is optional. Which film selected should also be told.
4. The story must contain the following three sentences, as dialogue or narrative.

"I love you, but the horse can not run."
"Without a drop to drink and not a donkey in sight."
"Boasting, arrogant and quite wonderful was he / she /it '

Some more rules, but also full flexibility in the story's scope, this will be fun!"

First of I'll admit that this is not my kind of gig, I know I have a very unique writing style and the given lines will always stick out in what I write. On the other hand twenty lines of dialogue is a laughing matter, which then again makes getting those lines in there harder.
So let's see we have a horse and a love story, or it could be love as in family of course. Then we have a lack of drink, which either means dry or that the person has a drinking problem. The donkey can either be a donkey or an euphemism. All fair up until there and then... is that from Disney's Cinderella?
Considering the horses and donkey's I was thinking a desert theme, so I'd probably have taken the quote from Ben-hur or lawrance of arabia or something.

But then I kind of liked the idea that horse and donkey are euphemisms (or innuendo). I'm kind of thinking the bartender that's played by John Glover in the Smallville episode Noire (s6e20), or rather more the kind of character he's based on. So let there be noire.

Writer's Challenge 1: The Emperor and the Archeologist

Ok here's my first entry to the writers challenge.

While the most important invention of man must surely be said to be speech, for without it community could not exist and thus neither could civilization, and while oral tradition passed down from a generation to the next allowed for something that had never existed before, one species accumulating knowledge, it was writing that truly set this accumulation into motion. It allowed us to learn from our mistakes and to build upon what the previous generations had done rather than to have to reinvent and rediscover everything they had. Perhaps the former is the reason I write, so that other may learn from our mistakes, but also from our triumphs. Perhaps it is that during the long and winding history of mankind there has ever been those willing to put the torch to that what had been written, to destroy the knowledge and scatter it to the winds. One such man was Aldenei Ildrin, one of the most important persons to shape the events I will divulge, but history let's men like these take up far to much space in it's pages, and tells far less of the other sort, those who seek to preserve and record, those who build and create. Vildred Higgs was such a man, and a far more interesting one if I may make such a judgment call. It is his story I will divulge, but it isn’t until the destinies, if there may be said to be such a thing, of these two men intersect that things become really interesting.

It all began on a rainy autumn morning, by my reckoning of time, and such things must be acknowledged to be entirely subjective, the year 2078, a strong wind had been forcing wet air from the warmer seas around the equator north and when coming in over the southern highlands of the Borras continent the wet air was forced unto a higher altitude and thus cooled to rain, and often, but not on this very day, hail. Austakil was a port town the mouth of the river Akil, it name literally meant mouth of akil one of the greater cities on the continent. Always bustling with activity as ships from all around the empire docked there, unloading the cargo from seagoing vessels and unto the riverboats that would take it inland to the capital Urbakil, city on the Akil for those interested in linguistics.
In one of those dreary grey brick houses that the people of Borras seems to favor lived Vildred Higgs, no relation to the physicist I'm afraid. Usually Vildred would not be awake this time of the morning, having sat up far to late the night before mulling over his theories, we would consider them archeology but to the people of the empire it was considered theology, over where and how man had first arrived on this world. Not this morning though, this morning he was hurrying through the apartment looking for things, every time he passed through the kitchen stopping and taking a sip from his coffee and thinking about actually sitting down and having that breakfast, but each time remembering something else he had forgotten. He was tall, about 1,85 had a mess of brown hair that he never seemed to be able to get cut on time and glasses that had seen better times. The apartment was relatively small, two rooms, one bedroom and one kitchen combined with living room, the apartment of an academic, but not a wealthy one. It was also like it's inhabitant let's say slightly unkempt but not badly furnished, loads of dark wood and warm colors would have made it quite homely if Vildred had ever bothered with keeping it in a nice condition.
Vildred sat down with his coffee, sighing he was almost certain he had all he needed for his expedition to the southern continent. Of course to the universty it was not an expedition since they had not funded it but a vacation and none of them thought he had any chances of finding the proof he needed. Almost a soon as he had sat down a steamwhistle from the harbour announced that the 9 o'clock ferry up to the capital was leaving. Which meant he had less than an hour to get to his ship in time. Vildred grabbed his suitcase and his overcoat and ran out the apartment, only to have to return five minutes later to lock the door. He left the building again in a hurry almost knowing over two imperial soldiers outside on the sidewalk. He avoided them narrowly and then began running.
“Stop!” he heard a voice shout behind him. Vildred was in a hurry and paid it no mind. “Doctor Higgs, stop!” the voice called again. Vildred was about to stop when something hit him over the forehead and he collapsed on the wet cobblestones.
“You dare defy an imperial magistrate” a voice hissed down at him. Another soldier Vildred decided as he got on his feet again. Just to feel a kick to his ribbs and collapsing yet again.
“That will be all soldier” the first vice chided “I think the good doctor has learned his lesson, now let him get up” Vildred got on his feet and faced the man, he was short but meticulously well dressed, his style was that of an imperial official, a magistrate the soldier had said but from the way the soldiers were eying the man afraid even though they could have broken him like a twig, Vildred was willing to bet secret service. He had dark hair also flawlessly kept and was relatively tan for Borras.
“I am Tehnel Aqarra, I serve the emperor” the man introduced himself in an odd accent, then again the empire spanned the entire world, and all sorts ended up in the capital. “And you are Vildred Higgs, the theologian with the... unique... ideas”
“I am” Vildred acknowledged.
“His majesty has heard of your theories” Aqarra began, Vildred blinked, the majesty as in the emperor? The Emperor? “he finds them intriguing, but he cannot allow you to persist in spreading them around, but he will tell you more when you meet him”
“Meet him?” Vildred felt confused “I am honored but I cannot meet him I must be on a boat to Merdia in less than half an hour”
“I am incredibly sorry Doctor, I should have made myself more clear, you have no choice in the matter” He fished something out of his pocket and showed it to Vildred. It was a small broch showing the golden laurels of the secret service but inside it was a golden star rather then the usual open book. “This designates me as an inquisitor” Vildred almost chocked, the inquisition was just an evil rumor an organization above the law who answered only to the emperor himself. “And you have just been recruited, in the name of Emperor Aldenei Ildrin, any act but obedience is considered an act of treason. Now if you will please come with us” he motioned towards a carriage at the corner. Vildred followed him meekly, the emperor was a god amongst men and he were not going to challenge him, or at least so he thought at the time, funny how these things change.

Summary Stargate Fanfic

Ok if you at any point think you'll read my SGA fanfic series then this outline is pretty much as much spoiler as spoiler gets. Just saying

The point of this story isn't really Hoglund, never was, he's a macguffin of sorts, a vessel for bringing the story forward, the real main characters are Sora, Tyrus and the genii (espeically Athor, and the Radim siblings). Hoglund is mostly there as a pair of eyes for the reader to look through (since it's much harder to tell a story from the perspective of a an alien)

Book 1
Rising - the storm
9 episodes

Hoglund arrives in Pegasus and explores atlantis along the science team and some combat tecnicians under the command on Captain Nathan Jones.
Several deaths and unexplained cases of sabotage, later Hoglund realises Jones is behind it and during the events of storm (but before the evacuation) they fight and Hoglund kills Jones.
Hoglund is then evacuated from Atlantis along most of the crew. once on Manara he gets himself drunk (he's just murdered a former friend it seems like the way most people would deal with that)  and while being drunk he meets and tries to hit on sora who rifle buts him in the face and dumps him in a cellar.

The book is about how Hoglund about Atlantis and it's inhabitants (rather than just relying and caring about himself, "I'm not a psychopath I just had a hard life")

Book 2
the eye - the siege part 2 (ish)
10 episodes (+/- 0-1 episode)

We follow Sora through the events of the genii occupation of Atlantis. then after she's taken prisoner (/surrenders) we follow Hoglund as he interviews her and they find themselves affected by the stockholm syndrome.
Hoglund goes offworld a few times and encounters what appears to be ori woshippers (and learn of the events that really led up to the latintian-wraith war)

This book is about how Sora's influence on Hoglund force him to view pegasus from the point of view of it's inhabitants. It's also a book about how Sora comes to terms with lanteans and the actions of her people in relation to them.

Book 3
The siege part 3 (ish) - coup d'etat
17 episodes (+/- 0-1 episodes)

After the events of the siege captain William 'Bill' ______ of the SBS (who firsts whows up during the siege) is assigned to atlantis and is given an offworld team. He recruits Hoglund as his science officer and Sora as his alien liaison.
A cold war situation develops in Pegasus, with Atlantis and the geniistruggling for influence over other culture and worlds. Sometimes they tear down corrupt regimes but just as often they find themseves helping local warlords stay in power to prevent the genii from taking over.
Then come coup d'etat Sora tries to warn the lanteans about trusting Laden, and says he'll be worse than Cowen they let him.
Even after the situation is resolved Sora is disillusioned with Atlantis and starts speaking about leaving the city. That she may be of more use to pegasus if she returned to the genii.

Book 4Michael - The return part 1 (ish)
13 episodes (+/- 0-1 episodes)

With peace with the genii established Atlantis turns it's attention back to the wraith threat. With the first Michael situation arising Hoglund and sora is pro whiping the wraith out they are after all wraith. After first contact with the Asurans the team does several raids on Asuran outposts to capture technology and preferable ZPM's. Hoglund holds that the Asurans may be the ones chance they have of truly unlocking the secrets of the ancients.
When shepard is captured by Kolya the team uses Sora's genii contacts to try to track him down. Instead they find indicators of how Ladon has been wielding/abusing the power of his office, and considering that Atlantis is allied with him Sora grows ever more inclined towards leaving Atlantis.
When the ancients return and the expedition leave Sora goes to find the only genii commander who could oppose Ladon the legendary commander Athor. Hoglund tries to defect to follow her but is found out and brought back to earth. There he is disbared from the stargate program because he tried to go AWOL.

Book 5
The Return part 2 (ish) - missing
17 episodes (+/- 0-1 episodes)

Hoglund stuggles on earth to find a way to return to Pegasus. Meanwhile Sora seeks out commander Athor and convince him to come out of retirement and start a resistance movement again Ladon.

Hoglund finds some pieces about the great library (turns out the one in alexandria was a pale copy of an ancient one) that he brings to daniel jacksson and thus gets acess to the stargate. Now hoglund expected the library to be  a hoax but it turns out to be the real thing and ancient outpost, inside it Hoglund finds a reference to a atlantis class city ship in pegasus and manages to go awol on SG-1 when the library comes under attack from ori.
He joins up with sora and Athor (who doesnt like Hoglund becuase his son was killed by shepard and lanteans like lanteans) he brings their breakaway faction to the city that becomes known as the lighthouse.
Ladons genii name them terrorists and the department of homeworld security puts out a warrent for hoglunds arrest as a deserter. Once Atlantis comes back under earth controll they also have to avoid Atlantis teams sent out to capture hoglund. At the same time Hoglund raids asuran strongholds (as well as caches of ancient tech left by atlantis) to repair the lighthouse.
Captain ____ is tasked with leading a new SG team specifically founded to bring Hoglund in, on special request from ladon that "Atlantis deals with this menace it has created". Captain ___ however avoids capturing Hoglund and even manages to aid him a  few times, since only ladon and the DHS seems to be the least bit intrested in Hoglund it's allowed to slip by.
When given the chance he tells Hogund about becketts death. But soon after than Hoglund meets beckett who has ascended (with help), Beckett tells Hoglund that michael is still alive and and using has a lab on Hoff where he tries to unlock the secrets of the Hoffan drug. Hoglund and sora and their team plans to attack and destroy the lab.
Meanwhile a IOA special agent has taken over the hunt for Hoglund and somehow finds out he'll be on Hoff (maybee someone betrays hoglud to ladon who then tells the IOA?)
They all clash on Hoff and are trapped by michael's forces, they find that michael has tried unsucessfully to clone beckett, ascended beckett tells them it wont work since a clone lack the energy component of the original person.
Beckett is forced to use his ascended powers to get them out of there safely but is then quickly stopped by the others. Michaels lab is destroyed but but michael gets away with the drug and a clone that seems to have awoken after the ascended beckett dissapeared.

sora and hoglund meets sora's father who has been made a runner, in order to protect them he has to leave though.
As hoglund sets up to help rescue teyla ladon attacks them, Hoglund submerges the lighthouse rather than let it fall into genii hands. Ladon launches a nuclear bomb agaisnt the city and while the shield and the water soak up most of the blast Sora is in a  weakened section and gets hit by the radiation.

book 8
The prodigal - past the end of the series.
Hoglund seeks a cure for sora but but even after he gets help from beckett he's told that at this point there's nothing he can do. The last wave of radiation was the final straw to her otherwise high lifetime exposure to radiation. If Hoglund had gotten her to backett right after it happened then maybee. After Atlantis returns to earht hoglund relaises that the ascension machine (from tao of rodeney) could let her live beyong her mortal lifespan. He hijacks a traveller ship upgrades the warpdrive to intergalactic (yeah he can do that I'll come up wth some plebotheum) he goes to earth and infiltrates atlantis gets sora to use and survive the ascendometer. Hoglund beams her back to his ship, she awakens jsut to see earth assuming the ship to be threat open fire upon it from atlantis. She says goodbye to Hoglund before the ship blows up.
A broken Hoglund is brought to trail for his actions in Pegasus, but then he starts blaming athor for sora's death and escapes and somehow get's back to pegasus where he is to unleash a superweapon upon the genii capital, but relaises he has lost it when Sora appears before him and tells him he shouldnt. The SG people arrive to stop him to see he already has started to stop it. With Mckay's help hoglund stops the machine but the transports mckay out of there was the machine blows up killing him. Shepards team and captain ___ goes down to the surface to meet athor, who promptly betrays them and reveals he had planned most of the events to be able to avenge his sons death on shepard. But then Dahlia Radim leads an unbloody coup agaist him, saying that unlike Ladon and Athor she won't kill he predessecor becuase as a reign begins it continues. She asks the lanteans to take Athor into custody then Athor draws a gun to shoot shepard but is himself shot in the arm by an unknown gunman. Who turns out to be Tyrus. Tyrus kneels over the bleeding athor and athor says soemthing and athor replies "You did one mistake Athor, you shouldn't have let my daughter die" before killing him.

then we pan to a scene where Bill standing on a pier of atlantis, Sora and Hoglund comes up to him, and he asks them if they are really there.
"I'm sorry bill you know we can't answer that" hoglund said
"This is where our path diverge William" Sora smiled. and then they faded away.
