Th cast list and Omnibus has been updated, with some minor changes:
  • I didn't incorporate cross-references in the character list. Basically, if we know the character's last name, that is what they're listed under, alphabetically. If they only have one name, or their last name isn't known, they're listed by first name.
  • I did some rearranging of the end points for some of the Projected volumes of WS. This includes starting the current volume (Holding Up A Mirror) with Guidance waking up Georgette.
  • There were some other minor changes, but I'll let you discover them. Links remain the same on Google drive.
  • Anyone wanting the Omnibus in a Word format document, let me know via PM .

Or, perhaps, just perhaps, all of the above people should be listed by first name in front of a directive to consult the proper heading.

For example: Cricket -- see Foxglove, Princess Calista

This would be a way to get everyone to the right place with only a slight amount of labor on both the writer's and the readers' sides, and the person using the resource would learn a little something in the process.

This could also expand to people who are named so infrequently that the average reader would not know where to start looking.

For example: Jin's mother -- see Adeobie, Mayahuel

Is one of these supposed to be "Monica's Ex-Boss"?

Nice complete cross-reference list, my friend! My submission was meant to be the Cliff Notes version.

I just went down the list and noted who may be better known by another name.

The updated list in the Omnibus has the other "Gregory Fields" reference as "Museum Director."

Search functions are pretty common nowadays. So a cross-reference list doesn't have to be designed to be searched by humans (where things like alphabetizing and multiple listings are really nice).

For example, consider this possible cross reference
Fae Princess Cricket fairy antennae squished protege - see Foxglove, Calista
If you remember any one of several things about her, you can find her. And it doesn't matter where in the cross-reference list you put the entry. It could be immediately after Monica's and before Atsali's. This would also allow for natural groupings that don't happen to correspond with an alphabetic list - such as putting the three entries with "Golem" in them together.

(I would keep each entry in a separate line or paragraph, so that when something is found it's clear exactly what the boundaries of the entry are.)

The cast list has been updated through the New Year! Jacob and Randi have joined the cast list, and their coffee shop is in the place list as well!

And we have our monthly update.

Complete version
"E-book" version
"Condensed" (no pictures) version

I really couldn't figure out what to call our unknown girl from the orphanage, other than Demon Girl (since she looks a bit like the pinups Pablo has been putting up). So until she gets a name, she's "Demon Girl" in the cast list.

We could always go for the traditional name for an unidentified corpse... "Jane Doe", but we know this one had a name (just not known to us).

Also, "Jane Doe" is probably taken.

I thought of the Pratt strip when I made that comment. Demon Girl has unanswered questions... we don't know anything about Suzi's 'project'.

On last read, I did find some errors that I will attempt to remember to fix.

I have not yet updated the cast list to include Lilith, mostly because we really don't know who she is - other than she knows Stheno.

I am off on vacation this week, though. And I have a little project that I'd like to try to accomplish this week - involving a road trip and my camera. ;)

Right now, chances are 50/50 as to this little excursion tomorrow. It'll all depend on weather and energy level.
