This time I'll have to keep up and not fall behind like I did before.

Looking forward to the new story. :mrgreen:

Woot! The technical/background stuff always takes a bit, but I got through it! Looking forward to the new story line and whether the Terah line has survived - I noticed Tatooine has always, stayed free of the craziness of the Universe. But very exciting to see how things have evolved over 300 years!

I'll be honest, I think I followed most of that!

I assume that Joshua Loran is a descendent of either Jaden, or a union of Face and Ca'tra.

Will there be Terah's/Lorans/Kargins as well as Tarns rocking about? :)

Well, we have the Kargin's potentially with the Shadow Front - I am excited to see the specific descendants crop up!

You'll have to wait and see :D

They'll be plenty of familiar surnames, but maybe a little different from what you're all used to :wink:

Alright - the intro has me hooked!

I like the view of several of the factions - also, Somewhere Octavia wants to punch the Baron and hug her granddaughter who is x-# of times removed.

Great job! :)

Well, rest assured, Ocatvia's descendants will play a fairly large part in the storyline.

In the meantime........ :D

Still looking for a Loran or two... ;)

But apart from that glaring fault, it's looking good. I especially liked the return of Jenna!

Just caught up!

Woot! A Loran AND a Gavin. Looking forward to seeing if Ash has retained some of her ancestors skills! ;) And wondering if she's from Shira's line, or Ca'tra's..! ;)

Agreed with Face - will be interesting to see. Also, woah on the complex politics - although getting to watch a kidnapping be set up is agonizing!

Also, way to make me love Galatea even more - hopefully she can figure out the mystery and not take some fall for it, either! Go spunky little engineer!

Well written as always - looking forward to seeing the Mandos enter the scene, although there is a ton to cover in such a fractured and complex 'verse.

Hey, hey there's more :D

Glad you're enjoying so far. You may notice A few questions being created throughout the story. Especially around some the characters, things should become clear for some of them soon enough :D

And more will be created :lol:

As for Ash? She -like a lot of characters- is going to be little more complicated than she appears :wink:

Cool!

And new part, yay! *kermit arms*

Be interesting to see how the Mandos have evolved, especially now that the gangs on the station got into and brought them down. :)

Wow! Sorry it took so long to reply to your most recent addition, Deven.

First - Galatea apparently has about as much luck as Octavia, and is sharp as a whip to realize what happened there. Or paranoid, but again, that makes her quite the ancestor!

Second - the Mando policy on the sprawl for crimes was great. Arena, service, rot forever - it kinda fits. Also, I loved the series of events with Ran, although I'm sure he didn't!

Which brings us to - Ash! I cannot wait to see who this girl is working for/with/against/what the heck is her deal. I sense a Wraith style group forming, though...maybe? I can hope, right?

And maaaaaan, does Octavia want to rise from the grave and start beating down some fools (like Galatea's dad) at the company she founded. Good thing she wasn't a force user (although strong talent is sometimes a force manifestation :P ) or she'd be haunting that place like no one's. business.

And sorry it's taken so long to reply to your reply hehe

Galatea and the events at Tatooine are going to have a very big imapct on things. Won't say how yet, need surpises :D

Likewise, both Ash and Ran have very big parts to play.

Should have the next part up in a couple of days, maybe sooner.

Also, adding a new part to the introduction. Not much just a little map.

I will try and keep parts bite sized hehe

Next couple of parts are bit more political/scene setting in nature. But there'll be some action and shooting and kittens....

......well, maybe not kittens. They wanted too much and they've got a tough union.

New part posted. There'll be a lot of 'back room' scenes in the next few parts, less action, more characterization/scene setting.

More stuff! I'll be honest, it's not as easy to get my head around (not having immediate connections to these people doesn't help!) but still enjoying it! The thought did occur though... there is no reason why the Sacul (as an HRD) isn't still around! Just in case you felt like utilising her! :)

Woah, nice! I like the shorter bits. :)

Also, what on EARTH (or Tatooine) did Galatae do? o_O I felt like lecturing her, for some reason.

But very nice piece and super easy read.

I'm back after a mega long absence.

I've been writing a lot while I was away, so I actually have enough material for this story for weekly updates for a good while :D

Do have a problem though as one ongoing element does deal with something I'm not sure is forum appropriate. Nothing overly graphic, no sex or swearyness, just something that's part of the storyline, but I don't want to offend anyone. Depends what peoples opinions are on this particular subject.

;Also, map in the info thread has been updated with a better quality one.

Same sex relationship between two of the female leads. Nothing overt or graphic, just kinda 'there'

Okies, after much discussion (A couple of messages) with GH, it's been decided to move Fractured Galaxy to it's own site.

https://fracturedgalaxy.wordpress.com/

This thread will remain here for general responses and to update with a new part. But I'll probably look into adding a comments section over there too. Assuming there isn't already, I'm still learning hehe

So, without further ado. NEW PART!!!!

Well, two parts. Parts 10 and 11.

Part 10
Part 11

Content warning. Story does depict a same sex relationship between two major characters. If this isn't something you are comfortable with, then I'm sorry, but it is a fairly integral bit of the story. (Was a request from a friend who has gone through similar issues of her own) There's no graphic language, imagery and it's not written for shock value, so I'm hoping things will remain enjoyable for all.

Please note, the site at the end of the links is not endorsed by this board, it's owners, webmasters nor anyone associated with it. Just me. :D
