Well, let's see, a new season of anime just started. A Certain Magical Index is back, as is Sword Art. Of the new new animes, only "That Time I was Reincarnated as a Slime" has captured my interest. How a businessman (and gamer) gets reincarnated as an uber-slime in a fantasy world, and makes peace between the goblins and dire wolves.

The summer also saw a lot of good real nature and history documentaries from BBC America and National Geographic Channel. DirecTV insisted I upgrade my equipment, and gave me a "genie", which easily records stuff being broadcast at 4 am (or whenever). It's a little tricky permanently saving recordings from this, but making DVD quality rips seems to be okay. Blue Ray quality files are too damned big anyway.

So I just uploaded the last pages 701-800 selected pencils, and new pages 1453-6 are coming next.
  • Listening to: Beatles
  • Reading: Phys.com
  • Watching: Index III, Lizards of Oz, Fish
  • Eating: Potatoes
  • Drinking: Diet Pepsi

Molly Blue pencil 809 Zed Peter Lekoa
And here's the last three crew members. Zed and Peter were initially featured dancing with Marcella and Kea at the Charles Hotel, partly because most of the other available men were either guarding the ship or playing the music! It wouldn't be until the ship left Napili Island for the first time that Eleanor decided— Well, meanwhile, Zed and Peter remained minor characters, just more smallish sailors helping in routine work scenes.

Lekoa, on the other hand, was immediately noticeable for playing sitar ragas, which he called "fake bwangy music from the ancient island of India," and being the target of Jade's aggressive affection, despite telling her that tantric practice was not part of his spiritual path.

Give me a group of boy and girl sailors, and I immediately start shipping them.
These three all appear on page 809. www.deviantart.com/cloudmonet/… More crew

Molly Blue pencil 809 Brian Luhona Harry
These three are all from the McKenzie crew. Brain appears on page 808. www.deviantart.com/cloudmonet/…. and the others on page 809. www.deviantart.com/cloudmonet/…
I'm presenting them here as I originally drew them. There was some rearrangement on the final pages.

Brian also plays guitar and sings sailor songs. He's friends with Peika.

Luhona comes from Tekaha Island, where the brown people originally landed their starship some 13,000 years ago. He's one of the strongest men on the crew and knows it. He's dedicated to his work.

Harry is also a big strong man who's dedicated to his work. He likes to spend his time off in the arms of a pretty woman, and not always the same one.

Molly Blue pencil 809 Jade Monica Maho Chuck
These four all came from the MacKenzie crew.

Jade is a bit older than the other women, and maybe about 12 years older than Lekoa, so not what you would usually mean by "old enough to be my mother." Like Marcella, she has dark brown hair and tan skin.

Monica is African descended (as opposed to Polynesian), and so is Annie the cook. She's friends with Kea and Marcella.

Maho is one of the youngest on the crew, probably about 19. He has a somewhat shady past he doesn't want to talk about.

Chuck is the oldest on the crew. He has a wife (and probably family) who live on Mukala Nai, the realm's capitol city.

These people all appear on page 809. www.deviantart.com/cloudmonet/… More crew

Molly Blue pencil 808 Terry Kaipo Annie Peika
Terry, Annie, and Peika came from MacKenzie's crew.

Terry and Kaipo's names came from graffiti on a picnic table on Maui. I used these names for an interracial couple. Kaipo lived on Kauiki. Her parents disapproved of Terry as a boyfriend until Molly interceded for them. Kaipo had previously tried to sign on as a sailor on Terry's ship but been refused. Now once again Molly helped them stay together.

Annie is the cook. On Captain MacKenzie's ship, her meals were not much appreciated, but Molly let her choose her own supplies and the crew loves the results.

Peika plays guitar and sings sailor songs. I don't know much else about him yet.

These characters all appear on page 808. www.deviantart.com/cloudmonet/… Molly’s crew

Molly Blue pencil 808 Alphonse Merk Nakipi Kalio
And here's pencil portraits of four more crew members.

Alphonse and Merk are two friends from Ray MacKenzie's crew. They're somewhat older, more experienced sailors, but they're not the oldest. Alphonse knows how to set the sails in difficult situations. Merk is the navigator (get it? Think of a very famous world-map projection!)

Nakipi and Kalio are two Makamaka villagers who followed Molly to Hanatoa and asked to join her crew. They had no experience sailing, and little ability to fight, but Molly welcomed them. They learned the tasks of sailing quickly enough.

March 26, 2018. Exactly 67,000. I think it jumps erratically rather than being the kind of continuous count it once seemed to be.
