The StormVerse Chronicles are a series of stories that began with the five season long Storm Front, and continues now with Tempest Fore.
This is where it all began. The first chronicle follows a group of friends known as The Pack.
The second major chronicles, Tempest Fore follows Dade and others to the large metropolis of Saran City.
Mainstream is Marcel’s story.
Interludes are self contained stories that are scattered throughout The StormVerse Chronicles. Many events alluded to in the main series are often covered in these.
Ponderings is my own little corner of the SV, where I get to share my thoughts on anything and everything. Read at your peril!
It’s hard to believe we’re already up to the go home period of Tempest Fore’s second season. The final five chapters kick off with TF2.11: When Liberty Burns this Sunday at the usual time. The main chronicles all have 15 chapter seasons now, and these final five chapters kick things up a notch for some of our characters. I’m very curious to see how people feel about these last chapters of the season.
I have not fully settled on what I will be releasing after TF completes this season, but there are plenty of options. I hope you guys are really enjoying the season though, and most especially this year! TF will finish the season in the first week of December. In 2014 I may do two seasons of TF, which means TF will conclude its run in 2015. It’s helpful having this one release a week system so I can almost plan the year out as far as online releases go.
So we’re in the second season as you can see from above. That means Cede Nullis and Rising Tempest will be the seasons we get next year, and that means in 2015 we’ll see the end of Tempest Fore, and the two season special of The Return. That’s thirty five weeks taken up right there! Maybe I’ll fit Maelstrom onto the tail end of that year but with the side series and interludes it might get bumped to 2016. And that’s when we’ll find out who is getting married! As far as writing goes, I hope to actually be writing Maelstrom next year. I’m already well into Season 3 of Tempest Fore, so I write well ahead of where the SV Sunday updates are. I’m already planning what my life after The StormVerse Chronicles will be like, writing wise, but really, when The SVC does end with the final season of Maelstrom, it just means my next stage of work begins trying to push it further into other mediums.
Anyway, I think this is a great time to catch yourself up on Tempest Fore before this weekend’s chapter comes out. I’d love to hear what you guys think of it too! How do you like our new front page? Settling into it? I hope so. I’m out!
Well, I have just finished watching the third and final season of Nickelodeon’s Avatar: The Last Airbender. I’d heard about it for the longest time but sorta passed it off. Tried watching it after the movie came out too and never stuck with it. But when I had all the episodes available to watch and had a marathon, holy shit, my eyes opened! This is one of the best shows I’ve ever seen, animated or live action. Better than most live action to be honest. I used to wonder what the big deal was about when people complained about the live action movie. I didn’t mind the movie. I found it inoffensive and I love the soundtrack and some of the visuals. Acting wasn’t the best, but I didn’t understand the level of vitriol toward it. I still don’t hate the movie but I certainly understand now why people were so let down by it. The Avatar world, and I’m not talking about that stupid Pocahontas in Space film with the blue aliens, is rich, and vibrant, and just beautiful. The story and character development and themes are too good to be relegated to what many will pass off as just a kids show. Man, it really wasn’t. It’s just that it worked on so many levels. I wish more mainstream shows were like this.
The character of Aang was just so well written, and voiced, and animated, etc, but the way they handled his character really impressed me. His flaws and imperfections just made him more real. I’m so Team Aang. I also loved the bonds and dynamics between all of the main characters. There were so many likeable characters on the show. From the avatar himself, through to one of my favs; Zuko, and especially Uncle Iroh. You have to watch this show. It’s just amazing. The only downer? No widescreen? No HD? Yikes. Standard definition? *shivers* It needs to be upgraded so it can be pretty like this;
What’s the show about? Well, I wouldn’t know where to start. Just watch the damn thing lol. Seriously though, this show has just joined my all time favourite shows list which includes Babylon 5, Firefly, and Young Justice’s first season. Five cows for this baby!
There is a sequel show that I have not yet ventured into because it takes place so long after this show and I will miss these characters. I may watch it. We’ll see!
In other Ty news, Demon Cat went home. Its owners put up posters. Turns out the cat was named Moo. I knew it was too friendly and house trained to be just some stray. So it’s gone now and my little adventure with her is over. In memory of Demon Cat, here she is giving me her WTF GET OUTTA MY FACE look when she was trying to sleep and I kept bugging her.
Also, it turns out the cat that sits on my fence and Demon Cat are actually two different cats. I’m just surrounded by the little buggers. There are three cats that still cross through the yard on their way to murder poor birds. Demon Cat is the only one who inflicted itself on my personal space though. I’m glad she’s gone back to her loving family though as she was starting to cramp my mojo.
This week’s release is Metamorphosis, the tenth episode in the second season of Tempest Fore. The seasons for the big chronicles are fifteen chapters now, just to give you an idea of where we’re at. I hope you’re enjoying this season! I’m writing the third and other things right now. Thanks to everyone who bothers to leave feedback, I really appreciate your effort! Whether it’s here, on facebook, or the kicking ass Twitter! I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend. Anyone seen Gravity? I really wanna see that. Until next time, as always, I’m your host.
When I first started pondering, back before blogs were called blogs, there was no such thing as facebook, or even myspace. I had some bad experiences with some well meaning but a little over zealous fans who would find ways to call me. I got a little anal private after that, but fast forward to the present and while I’m still private compared to others, I’ve become much more accepting and understanding of the power of social networking. *cough* beaten into submission *cough*. Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter are my main avenues now. All of them are doing pretty well but Twitter is turning into my most popular, followed by instagram and facebook. Instagram doesn’t really promote my writing though so it’s sorta negligent as far as this site goes. Twitter, however, is turning into a good way of connecting with new readers. And that’s kinda fun.
For those interested, Demon Cat never came back. Clearly my attempts to vanquish the evil were successful. Who knew that locking your window could produce such winning results.
The main site is getting a bit of a makeover so excuse us if there are any teething problems. I’m not sure yet, but I might be getting bumped off to another site in order for stormverse.com to become an index or directory page. We’ll see. If that happens I’ll let you know where I end up. It depends on the layout really. The changes are due to a lot of new traffic and wanting to be sure people know where to go and what The SV is all about. In 2014 all of the sub sites will be getting a makeover to get everything uniform. It’s all about improving the user experience.
How is everyone enjoying Tempest Fore’s second season? I hope you’re enjoying it! This is a great season for building on the foundations of the first season and in particular if you like Dade, Corey, or Marcel. It’s been awesome having Marcel around and his influence has been felt in a lot of ways. And of course Conrad. I love that the older characters are getting more shine time. I’d love to hear your guys thoughts on the forums. One day the community will be the way it used to be, and better. Once I master the art of funnelling everyone onto the same platform, it’ll be epic. And I won’t ruin it by taking a hiatus this time lol. I haven’t had one in years and I know what I want in life now, lol, finally, and I’m working toward that.
I’ve been playing some Xbox 360 lately. My gamertag is TySV. Add me! I am presently killing Injustice and Minecraft. Imjustice is an amazing game that I will try and do a full review for later. Got a bit of gaming to catch up on reviews wise. Plants vs. Zombies 2 on Android is freaking awesome too. I loved the first game, and playing it on my beautiful Samsung Galaxy is a joy. And best of all it is FREE!!! Get into that shit right there. And friend me if you do! We can get goodies together.
So like television is not something I really have a lot of time for. Right now my weekly fixes are Supernatural and Agents of Shield. Fortunately, they air on the same day! Love it. Honestly, compared to Game of Thrones these shows are pretty average, but I’d still put them in the 7 range and I enjoy them. I don’t watch The Walking Dead since Season 2 kinda turned me off, but I’m considering getting back into it since people go on about it so much. We’ll see.
P.S. Demon Cat just came back.
