WMHB: The Internet-friendly Guard

We’ve been working on the edits of the Evenfall rewrites this weekend. We broke the book into quadrants so we’ve been working on different chapters. I’m editing a scene in Evenfall chapter 22, and I cannot tell you how much I want to write something in dialogue I really just can’t do. But if I can’t stick it in story, at least I can blog about it. Behind a cut for spoilers in Evenfall chapter 22. This is the scene as it’s currently edited: — “What the hell is this?” “If you read it, you’ll see it gives me clearance—” “To release Vega to his apartment, yeah, I went to kindergarten, too,” the guard said snidely. He waved the paper in the air and glowered at Boyd. “I mean, this makes no fucking sense. This isn’t protocol. We get orders through chain of command, not through agents prancing around with special clearance straight from the Marshal.” — What I really really omg you guys don’t understand! want to have the guard say in that last line is: — “We get orders through chain of command, not through agents prancing around with their special snowflake paperwork.” — He can be the internet-friendly guard, all hip to the lingo from nearly a decade prior in an alternate timeline, right?

(Not So Very) Important Conversations: How April Fool’s epilogue didn’t become a thing

(Not So Very) Important Conversations, or NSVIC, are excerpts from joking conversations Sonny and I had during the process of writing, editing, or otherwise working on ICoS. This one is a joke about Fade’s epilogue, and even though I don’t think it contains spoilers past mid-Afterimage I’m still putting it behind a cut just in case. How April Fool’s Epilogue didn’t become a thing. convo on 1/23/2013 ais:  aww i just got really sad that we’re not finishing the series anywhere around April sonny:  why ais:  we couldve totally punked everyone with a fake epilogue set 10 years later with sin marrying some random lady for april fool’s sonny:  thats a terrible joke ais:  it would be awesome for April Fool’s XD imagine how much that would mess with everyone Sent at 9:49 PM on Wednesday ais:  wtf internet sonny:  ?? ais:  it signed me out of chat randomly anyway im just saying, it would be hilarious ann could come back suddenly and be like “oh btw sin i got pregnant back then and never told anyone, and so here is your kid and he really needs a father in his life” and sin would be like “oh ok well forget boyd then” and ann/sin ride off into the sunset and boyd commits suicide THE END WHY DOES IT KEEP SIGNING ME OUT sonny:  because youre talking crazy ais:  google hates my idea so much it kicks me off the internet FINE. as it turns out, after 6 years of watching us write this story, google has developed a love for boyd and sin and will not abide talk...
