Fusiliers Forever: Chapter 10
10 Galatean City Galatea, Lyran Commonwealth 12 May 3038 The Fighting Fusiliers were a brand-new mercenary company and a small one at that, but traditions have to start somewhere. One thing that seemed to be emerging as a Fusilier tradition was taking on people who were misfits in one way or another.     Take their new recruit, Laura Bauer. She was twenty-six standard years old and tall and beautiful, with blue eyes and long blonde hair. But her model-quality looks weren't what made her a misfit. It was her record.     Hailing from the Lyran Commonwealth world of Mississauga, Laura came from a middle-class family with a history of mil

9 Galatean City Galatea, Lyran Commonwealth 26 April 3038 After a fortnight on Galatea, Garadun had come to a definite conclusion: he hated the place and was really looking forward to getting a contract so they could leave. It wasn't the city. Galatean City was a huge, modern metropolis that had just about everything you could want, and catered specifically to the needs of mercenaries. There were an endless amount of hotels, bars, restaurants, night clubs and casinos.     As for military hardware, that was as easy to acquire as a pair of shoes. Almost every manufacturer of weapons, munitions, vehicles, aerospace fighters, BattleMechs an

8 Galatean City Galatea, Lyran Commonwealth 13 April 3038 It had taken twelve long days for Shearling to make the trip from Galatea's zenith jump point, and everyone was relieved to be on planet again. Even one as harsh as Galatea. Its sun was a yellow-white giant, classified F8 II, and in the planet's equatorial region the average temperature was a searing 55 Celsius. The world had a thin ozone layer, surface water of only thirty-five percent, and very little plant life. It was a desert.     Galatea was the mercenary capitol of the Inner Sphere; although these days it was losing more and more business to the Wolf's Dragoons Hiring Hall

7 Nadir Jump Point Gacrux, Lyran Commonwealth 1 April 3038 There was no denying that after a few days aboard Distant Memory, the presence of Wasp and Stinger had given the crew's morale a big boost. They were incredibly cute, as all kittens are, and many of the crew (notably the women) had dropped by Garadun's cabin when off duty to visit and watch them play or even just sleep.     The sight of them romping along the grav deck's main hallway was something that brought on many adoring smiles. Garadun didn't take them out of his quarters often, but when he did they always drew admirers. They were Sian-Xiaos, a small Capellan breed which w

6 Nadir Jump Point Solaris VII, Lyran Commonwealth 24 March 3038 The sight of Distant Memory was something that almost took Cera's breath away as she stared out one of Shearling's viewing ports. She'd seen holographs of JumpShips before, but that wasn't even worth mentioning when you saw the real thing with your own eyes. A Tramp class JumpShip is 640 meters long, masses 250,000 tons, has a 140-meter diameter grav deck and two cargo holds. The ship has three docking rings for DropShips to attach to, as well as two small craft bays.     Neatly docked inside those bays were two KR-61 long-range shuttles: Golden Sable and Silver Fox. They

5 Outbound to Nadir Jump Point Solaris VII, Lyran Commonwealth 19 March 3038 After three days aboard Shearling the biggest problem Cera had to deal with was boredom. The initial shock of take-off had long since vanished. There was nothing for her to do, not really. The running of the DropShip and its maintenance was in the hands of its capable crew. She didn't try to help them with their duties, knowing she'd only get underfoot. If someone asked her to lend a hand, then fine. Otherwise she tried to keep out of their way and not be a problem.      Watching 'Mech battles on the vid could only kill so much time befo

4 Solaris City Solaris VII, Lyran Commonwealth 19 March 3038 Garadun stood with Cera, Alexandra and Ian on the wet ferrocrete tarmac of the Solaris Spaceport, watching as Sayuki's Centurion walked slowly up Shearling's ramp and into the DropShip's lower 'Mech bay, guided by Jimmy who was directing her with a pair of glowing yellow-orange batons while he spoke into a headset. This could be tricky for someone like Sayuki who hadn't done it before, but so far so good.     Garadun smiled as he glanced around. The Solaris City 'Mech Bays weren't that far away. It was where he'd first worked when he moved to Solaris, and being a 'Mech driver was

Sally Ride RIP
For those who don't know Sally Ride, astronaut and America's first woman in space passed on recently. She battled for a long time with pancreatic cancer but it finally got the upper hand. A very influential person to me personally because we both shared the same problem, yes I have pancreatic cancer too - its the reason I've not posted much recently. God speed Sally Ride you were an inspiration to fellow sufferers of the disease not to mention young girls in America. She was an inspiration to young girls to strive further and aim at the stars.

Just a quick word to give you guys the lowdown on why the dearth of uploads from yours truly this last couple of months. My health has hit rock bottom and if things weren't bad enough I tripped over one of my own IV lines and broke my shoulder on the kitchen floor. I bought a wacom (beginner model, nothing fancy but it doubles as a touch pad allowing me to use my comp much in the same manner I would my android tablet.) in order to try to improve my somewhat diabollical texturing skills, the fucked shoulder has that on hold till it heals same as the traditional art I'd been doing thats had to be held over too.

Diets? Who needs them?
This is week four for me that I've not been able to stomach solid food, its a pretty bad situation to be in mainly due to a lack of energy. Its no where near the longest time I've had to go without either but this time does seem somewhat different. I had a bout of flu during the early stage this time and my body didn't or rather wasn't getting the extra energy it needed to repair itself so the flue lasted a full three weeks instead of the usual few days. Woke up this morning though with something different - the harsh abdominal pains that had put me off eating had gone completely (I suffer from chronic pancretitis) and I actually managed a bo

I just came by because I randomly clicked on an image in my "Random From Favorites"
I don't know how I missed this, how I didn't realise it had been so long since I'd seen something from you in my inbox. I'm always running behind on catching up.
I... I have a "karanua" folder in my Favourites and I didn't quite notice that I haven't had anything to add to it in years.
This keeps happening.

I hope that wherever your soul is, it's having a good time.
Rest In Peace.

god I'm terrible at these

Based on the comments here, I think he died on dA's 12th birthday, or earlier than that.

May he rest in peace, even though I just knew about this today. :saddummy: :pray:

I can't believe it.  I'd been away so long, I didn't even know.  You'd always been a great individual off of whom to bounce ideas.  I'm hardly expressing any original sentiments, but I mean it when I concur that you'll be missed.
