In apology for missing the last update, have this one a day early and in Beefy Size. It’s a good 36k of story, covering a few major scenes and setting up the premise for the entire chapter.
I had to do a LOT of research and planning for this one. All I really had in my notes was “And then they go to Spain for some reason.” I did a lot of pondering of how I would depict a traditional olde worlde European nation I had never actually visited, before realizing… hey, this is anachronauts. It’s not about realistic depiction of what IS, it’s about fantastic depiction of what COULD BE when you smash two cultures head-on into each other.
This naturally led me to Ibiza, and to the inevitable conflict that you will be reading about shortly.
Feedback welcome. In particular… after these scenes, the crew splits up to go do little errands and tasks. Which of the four primaries would you like me to write about first? Gilbert, Jesse, Chloe, or Benny? I’ve put little hints of where each are going, but rest assured, my plans for each are strong character building bits. Which one do you want to see most?
EDIT: It’s looking like I can actually chain the stories together effectively if the order is Benny, Chloe, Jesse, and Gilbert. So, look for Benny’s run-in with an old friend here on Wednesday!
