Chapter 13InexplicableMore Like This
Only a two week gap between chapters this time: much better!
This chapter isn't as action packed as some of the others, but there is a lot of important stuff happening
Specifically, rumors about the living 737 are beginning to spread. As the plot thickens, this will raise chaos!
Also, Alba is a little tipsy
There are lots of characters in this one: Raymond, Alba, Anatole, "Crazy Eight," Niner, and a few minor characters who will show up again.
A Story for New YearsLast year I wrote a quick New Years Eve story about my airplanes, and I decided that I liked that enough to make a tradition out of it So, I've written this stilly little story to send off 2015 and welcome 2016!More Like This
It's about two hours and forty five minutes into 2016, here in the mountain standard time zone. I guess I'm a bit late, but I don't really care XD
This story features characters in Pioneers, but I'm leaving the date of this story unknown, to avoid spoiling anything in the trilogy. All of the characters are accurate, but this isn't nesisarily a serious canon story anyway.
So, here you go!
At an ex Air Force base in Southwestern Colorado, a mixed-matched assortment of aircraft gathered for a beloved tradition. They always met on New Years Eve to mingle with their makeshift fleet and family. For the airliners in the group, getting Christmas off was nearly impossible, so New Years Eve (which was originally the backup plan) quickly became their date of choice.

Chapter 12 ... FinallyI am SO SORRY about how long it took me to write this. It's been a month since I've uploaded anything D: Unfortunately, fall semester final testing, holiday choir performances, Christmas, work, and LOTS OF FLYING^^ put me waaaaaay behind schedule.More Like This
This is a comparatively short chapter. I was going to add one more scene, but I absolutely had to post something, because a month gap is inexcusable!
Sorry Niner fans, next chapter he'll get some time in the spotlight, but I took a break from his story to follow up on the Alba, Anatole, the troublesome 787-8, and a new 787-9 character!
CHAPTER 12: GAMBLE
Journey To a New WorldIt had since been 17 months since Ben and his family moved to England. Ben did not want to go to England at all, he wanted to stay in sunny Sydney with his friends. Ben taxied out of his hangar and looked at the other airliners take off. He hadn't flown in a while and he wanted to go back to Sydney badly. Little did he know that a very close friend would be paying him a visit soon. It was a miserable day and Ben was feeling down in the dumps because he missed sunny Australia. Ben was 14 now and had changed his livery from his blue livery to a white livery with blue wavy stripes. Ben was one of the largest planes at Heathrow, he was a mighty airbus a380. He hadn't finished growing yet but he earned a lot of respect from the other aircraft because of his massive size. Ben thought about the good times he had with his friends back in Australia but now things were different and Ben was feeling depressed. Ben ended up getting tearful because he thought about his best friend Hannah, who was aMore Like This
Biomechanical Plane TheoryAnyone in the Living Plane community is free use this journal to explain how their plane exist, if your plane is biomechanical.More Like This
A type of sentient plane where non-vital mechanical and electrical components like seats, internal lights, TV screens etc, are replaced with biological structures like organs, with these organs working in unison with the vital mechanical and electrical components in order to keep each other operational and maintained.
E.g. The brain (biological) uses the plane's electrical wiring (mechanical) as the nerves to control all the components.
Vital components are those necessary to allow the plane to fly safely. E.g. The engines, ventilation, GPS etc.
Non-vital components are components that are not necessary for the plane's survival. E.g. Tv screens, seats, cooking appliances, toilets etc.

End to Hostilities.World leaders are meeting on the living aircraft carrier Kestrel today to sign the peace agreement between humanity, and the long mistreated race of sentient machines. The war, which officially started in 2015, lasted one hundred years, and saw the deaths of 5.8 billion humans, as well as millions of the machines. Unoffially, machines have been scrapped, blown up or sunk by weapons tests. The agreement being signed today will give the machines equal rights, as well as permanent ownership of the wartorn North and South America, the former island nations of New Zealand, England, and Japan.More Like This
Kestrel, son of the battleship Iowa and the late Enterprise CVN-65 had this to say. "It is past time to put an end to this conflict, which has killed billions in total and caused great damage to our already devastated planet. We must now work to repair the damage done, both to the world we call home, and to our relations."
Many have gathered to watch the proceedings. However some have come to protest t

For those of you who read the old version of Pioneers, this should be a familiar title, but these are not familiar scenes.
I'll warn you, this chapter is a BEAST. My average chapters are 12 pages, but this one is 20. So feel free to read it in two parts
And with this chapter, I officially exceeded 50,000 words! Embark is now 55,941 world long!
Embark: New Plot DescriptionNow that I'm further into the story, I wanted to update the plot description to be less of a teaser and more in depth. Here it is, any opinions?More Like This
An unprecedented system failure causes an airliner to plummet from the sky, narrowly avoiding disaster. Both of its pilots wake up in the cockpit, having spent the last several minutes unconscious, only to realize their aircraft had repaired its own systems and recovered from its own stall. A team of FBI and FAA investigators examine the jet late into the evening. When they return, they discover the aircraft's hangar has been mangled, and the jet is gone. Days pass, as they try to find the aircraft and it's hijackers. What they discover is beyond anyone's preparation. The airliner is alive and fully flexible, capable of manipulating the shape of its fuselage - like an 163 foot long, mechanical animal.
The aircraft is hidden from the public and experimented on. Its scientific nature is examined, and their findings are remarkable. The pla

I'm fucking sick, too.
I'm sick of the griping about defending your opinions and values.
If you can't stand behind it and protect it all the time,
get fucking new ones.
Can we talk about the

#endfathersday, because "all
men are rapists and abusers"?
I'm sick of hiding my anti-feminist beliefs
for fear of being doxxed or lynched by a horde
of rabid, pink haired topless assholes.
I'm sick of "what about the men" being totally invalid,
but when I ask what about the female rapists and abusers,
you can't be bothered to respond.
I'm sick of your statistics being generally
un-fucking-reliable, and excluding the male victims
for the sake of perpetuating a female victim complex.
I'm sick of explaining sexism in this western culture
has become a two way street and having that called derailing.
I'm tired of you thinking censorship is a good way
to cope with your pseudotriggers.
