Chapter Not A Chapter: I Aten't Dead!
I ran into a writer's block last time I was working on the storyline. Which was in March. Then in April I decided to reorganise my plugins. Then for a while I stopped playing SC4. Next time I opened it up I decided to rebuild Farrer (yet again), so here we are!
Yes, it's been roughly forever.
Who? Wha... Prime Minister Marfan? What are you doing here?
I live here! What, have you forgotten in the six months since you last updated this CJ?
No, no! Not at all. You... er... you look well.
I do? I can't tell, myself. You never got around to giving me a better-quality picture. The only one I had was blurry and had blue lines across it, and now I don't even have that!
That picture... Katzgate's not even in this canon.
Hah, yes. I remember it though. You liked my character and thought you had not done me justice so you recycled me here. You didn't remember it though, you even had to look up what it was called!
I didn't remember, and I'm sorry. Katzgate was badly built, woefully written, terribly terraformed, and inadequately illustrated. And this one can't keep to a schedule. Even when it is updated it's barely better than before. The departure from Hidden Valley was rushed and the Dean comes across completely wrong, and that's just the start of the innumerable errors. I haven't thought this through at all.
Look... while I can't disagree with you on any of those points, you shouldn't beat yourself up over it. You can either try and rescue this, or make a fresh start with a new thread. OK? You should, though, ask what little audience you have left what they think.
Yeah, you're probably right. Well, we'd better make this a worthwhile post and show some pictures of how Farrer's coming along.
Rebuilding Farrer. Again.
What's this, the third, fourth time you've started to rebuild it?
I don't know, I can't remember.
Do I still have a house here?
I don't, do I.
Not as such, no.
I thought as much. Looks like I'm moving in with you.
I'm not entirely sure how that's supposed to work. I mean, you're f...
What? Is the fact I'm female a problem?
No, but you are fictional.
Oh yes... however, I am most certainly in your mind, and I will bug you incessantly about this.
What was that?
Nothing! Here, have some pictures of bridges.
A bridge. Where does it come from? Where does it go? Is this a rhetorical question?
Two more bridges. Rather close to the water, don't you think?
Yes, why are those bridges so low?
Well, I rather like the look my slope mod gives me, but I'm not going to fool around with the terrain for hours trying to get the bridges to be high enough for ferries to pass underneath. Guess we'll be ferry-free now. We'll end the city picture section with how it looks in the region now.
The region view. Don't notice the conspicuous airport-shaped hole in the trees to the bottom-right of the picture.
And now to remind you (if there are any of you left) of the question from before: should I try and salvage this, or should I try taking what I've written as a draft, rewrite it so it's something approaching decent, and try again?
