Mainz, Hardisey’s Haven
Circinus Federation
21 February 3051

There was a large crowd of onlookers hanging out on the tarmac to watch the Stinger emerge from the DropShip’s interior. The Langhorne Star was a Mule class DropShip and the 20-ton BattleMech was a spindly stick figure in comparison. Mules are one of the most common civilian DropShips in all of known space, and arguably the most popular cargo vessel, hands down. They can carry pretty much anything in their vast holds and that includes BattleMechs. Although not purposely designed for them, Mules carry far more ‘Mechs around the galaxy than people realise.
    Hardisey’s Haven is what the majority of Inner Sphere citizens think of when they think of Periphery worlds; assuming they give them any thought at all. It’s an agrarian planet with very little industrial capacity. By and large its inhabitants are farmers who earn their livin

7 February 3051

With the addition of Alan MacPherson to the roster (he had been assigned to Garadun’s Command Lance) the Fighting Fusiliers were now only two MechWarriors shy of a full battalion. Alexandra held a meeting with her senior officers to discuss matters, and after consultation she decided to end the company’s recruitment drive on Solaris. The Fighting Fusiliers were currently performing garrison duty on Pencader, so it wasn’t as if they were desperate to bolster their ranks.
    To everyone’s surprise it was Garadun who suggested they get on the road and make their way to Pencader. His friends thought he needed more time at home, especially Cera who knew the demons he was fighting. But if there was one thing about him that couldn’t be denied, it was that he was the kind of man who got the job done. In his view, hanging around on Solaris VII any longer than necessary was

Garadun sat at the main bar in the Guild Hall’s watering hole, the Old Solaris Tavern, and nursed his tumbler of Kuritan scotch. He wasn’t much of a drinker and the scotch was unremarkable, but sometimes you just needed something to dull the edges. He was now an officially commissioned captain in the Fighting Fusiliers, the commanding officer of the newly-created Third Company. In truth, the company was only half-formed for the time being, and that was on paper. The unit’s roster included himself, Cera, Ling Ling, Pandora, Astrid, Nikita and Halden.
    With the Fighting Fusiliers becoming a full battalion, Lady Alexandra (he still wasn’t used to her rank of colonel) was having to reshuffle some personnel. Nothing was set in stone as of yet, but, as he understood it, Heidi Renault was being moved from First Company’s Battle Lance to Second Compan

It had been many years, too many in fact, since Jimmy Han had looked over a BattleMech for his friend, Garadun Morr. Jimmy had been an astech at Chameleon Stables when they first met, and Garadun a civilian ‘Mech driver starting his MechWarrior internship. Now they were old men as well as old friends. Well, at least old when compared to so many of the young bloods in the Fighting Fusiliers these days. Garadun had turned forty-seven a little over a week ago, and Jimmy would be forty-one in three months time.
    Jimmy glanced at his brother-in-arms and couldn’t help but feel worried. His pal had always had a nasty side to him. Quiet until roused, but when it was roused, Garadun Morr became a ruthless sonofabitch who’d kill anyone who got in his way. This normally only happened when his loved ones were threatened, especially Cera Kuroda. Fighting in the arenas of Solaris h

It had been a long-standing tradition for Cera and Garadun to share breakfast together on the weekends, and now that they were home again, they had renewed the tradition in an effort to get things back to normal. Cera had always asserted that she was hopeless at cooking and admitted she was a lazy mooch, so breakfast was usually held at Garadun’s flat. He cooked and she lounged around in pyjamas.
    This Sunday morning was the first breakfast since their return; last weekend Cera had breakfasted with her mother. Cera loved her mother, she truly did, and she’d missed her terribly. But after two weeks of living together at the Kuroda family home, Cera moved back into her condo at Shinjuku Tower. Although she had a close bond with her mother, after too much time together they got on each other’s nerves. Even Hiromi Kuroda admitted that she and her daughter needed their own space.

Sitting on the ancient and well-worn steps leading to the entrance of Kobe’s main Shinto shrine, Garadun ignored the curious and-or dirty looks he was getting from passers-by. The venerable shrine had stood since the founding of Solaris, and he was pretty sure it didn’t mind him taking a load off. He was not a religious or spiritual man by any stretch of the imagination, but even he could feel the shrine’s serenity. The Shinto priests who maintained the shrine’s gardens and places of meditation didn’t mind him sitting on the steps, either. If that was where he found some peace, then so be it.
    He’d been back home on Solaris for a little over two weeks now, and after the awful year he’d had, he could do with some peace. 3050 had seen him lose his cherished baby-kitties, Wasp and Stinger; the year had taken his mother from him; and it had dropped him int

Solaris VII, Skye March

18 December 3050

It was raining when Cera exited Shearling and walked down the DropShip’s main ramp, but she didn’t care one bit. She was back on Solaris and the rain was a blessing. When she stepped off the ramp and onto the wet tarmac, she dropped to her knees. Her body shook with helpless weeping, her tears merging with the raindrops striking her face.
    “It’s okay,” said Garadun quietly, holding out his arm when Pandora moved forward. He stepped onto the ramp and slowly made his way down to Cera. He sank to his knees to hold her, and she clung to him and cried her heart out. After more than a year away; after surviving war and capture; after months of being part of Clan Ghost Bear; after even more months of space travel; they were, at long last, finally home.
    They had made it.
    When Cera’s emotions eventually eased off, she looked up from

Trondheim, Rasalhague Province
Ghost Bear Occupation Zone
19 October 3050

With an intense burst of electromagnetic and tachyon radiation, Distant Memory emerged from the void of hyperspace to arrive at Trondheim’s zenith jump point. Its appearance was immediately picked up by the Olympus class recharging station which was now in the possession of Clan Ghost Bear. Tramp class JumpShips were more numerous among the Clans than they were in the Inner Sphere, but when compared to the other classes of JumpShips in use, in general you didn’t see many of them.
    For Star Captain Lents this was noteworthy; more important was the fact that there was nothing on the schedule about an incoming ship. This was the second time in less than a week that this had occurred, and it was annoying. As the CO of the station he was supposed to be informed about incoming JumpShips. What was going on with the Ghost Bear naval reserve? Perhaps it was ti

Cera stood on the old and weathered tarmac of the Misby Flats Spaceport and sniffed the ash-tinted air of Trondheim for what was, hopefully, the last time. It was twilight and the city lights of Misby Flats were barely visible in the distance. Looming behind her was the Solaris Sun, its huge, spherical hull a dim silhouette in the deepening gloom.
    The repairs to the elderly Union class DropShip had been completed more than a week ago, and it was now in better shape than it had been in decades. The crew quarters had been renovated so as to make them liveable, the sanitary facilities had been rebuilt from scratch, and the old air recirculation system replaced entirely. The living conditions were no longer something a cockroach would sneer at.
    Safely housed and battened down in Bay 2 were the eight BattleMechs belonging to Cera, Garadun, and their Clan consp

The roof of Camp Misby’s main administrative building may not’ve been the ideal spot to have breakfast, but it’d been made as comfortable as possible. There was a large table with a dozen chairs around it, as well as a couple of smaller side tables. A pair of wide umbrellas, the kind that normally went with picnic tables, provided shade.
    Ever since he’d assumed command of 2nd Bear Alpha Trinary, Garadun had made a concerted effort to be himself and, in addition, toss in random bits of eccentricity into his behaviour. His goal was to project the image of a very odd duck to the Clanners, so that anything unusual he did would be chalked up to his being a bit weird. Such as hanging out on the roof for breakfast. Cera didn’t go so far as to act odd, but she always stayed true to herself and was normally in his company.

Hesperus II, Tamarind March

1 September 3050

Alexandra was pacing back and forth in Distant Memory’s luxurious conference room, now and then running her fingertips along the huge table’s smooth cherrywood surface. The Tramp class JumpShip had arrived in the Hesperus system only three hours earlier, and had begun charging operations at the zenith jump point’s Olympus class recharging station. Neither Alexandra nor anyone among the crew had ever seen so many vessels holding position at a jump point before. There were over two dozen JumpShips in a wide variety of types. Hesperus II was a central waypoint of the Federated Commonwealth, the nexus of several space lanes, and was normally busy.
    But this was busy and then some. The majority of the JumpShips in question were also military vessels, most likely carrying troops to and from the front lines. It was a time of war and the Clan Invasion had kno

Pandora stood in the hangar, looking up at her new BattleMech with a big smile on her face. When she was first assigned to the 2nd Bear Regulars, she’d been given a really old Griffin IIC to pilot. Other freebirth members of the Regulars had had similar BattleMechs, with the Ghost Bear leadership seeing no need to provide mere garrison troops with any sort of new equipment. A few of the trueborn MechWarriors, notably the officers, had newer second-line BattleMechs, even a handful of OmniMechs.
    That was until Star Captain Cera and Star Captain Garadun arrived on the scene and took over command of the 2nd Bear Regulars’ Alpha and Beta Trinaries. They hated the genetic prejudice which was so ingrained in Clan culture, and refused to put up with it within their own commands. This included the practice of freeborns getting all the hand-me-down shit while trueborns were

With the fourth wave of the invasion of the Inner Sphere scheduled to begin in August, the leadership of Clan Ghost Bear got off its collective ass and started making decisions. Claiming to have learned from previous mistakes made earlier during Operation Revival, Khan Bjorn Jorgensson was determined that his troops would have all the supplies that they needed for the fourth wave. Additionally, Khan Jorgensson at long last called up the PGCs to garrison captured worlds, freeing up the frontline troops. Even so, the delays resulting from the refit and resupply were costing the Ghost Bears prestige in the eyes of the other Clans.
    Not that the honour of a bunch of trashborns meant a damn to Cera and Garadun. All they cared about was getting their posting settled so they could focus on their plans. At the start of the fourth wave, Tau Galaxy was given its marching orders. Tau Gala

As he stood waiting on the ferrocrete tarmac for the Broadsword class DropShip, Noble’s Blood, to disembark its two passengers and their BattleMechs, Star Captain Nicolas could barely contain his curiosity. Were these Inner Sphere warriors as formidable as their files suggested? He couldn’t imagine how it was possible. They were only freebirths after all, and solahma to boot. Yet they had somehow attained the rank of Star Captain in their very first Trial of Position. He’d seen the footage. They fought with the savagery of the Ghost Bear, that couldn’t be denied – even if they did fight in an unClanlike manner.
    Nicolas stood a little straighter when the DropShip’s starboard bay door began sliding open, and the boarding ramp started extending seconds later. After a couple of minutes the first BattleMech emerged from the interior of the Dr

Last Frontier, Rasalhague Province
Ghost Bear Occupation Zone
28 June 3050

Although Cera had never given the Free Rasalhague Republic much thought, especially considering their attitude towards mercenaries, it still felt odd to be in the base that until only days before had belonged to the First Freemen. The Ghost Bears had invaded Last Frontier on schedule, dropping into their designated landing zones on the twenty-third of June. Hitting the defenders were the Ourse Keshik, the Silveroot Keshik, and the 310th Assault Trinary of Alpha Galaxy’s 1st Bear Guards.
    During the battle with the very brave but inexperienced First Freemen, saKhan Teresa DelVillar led the Ourse Keshik against one of the First’s ammunition dumps during the second day of fighting. Överste Knute Kurita’s company, which was defending the dump, opened up on the charging Ghost Bear forces and, in a blind stroke of luck (or misfortune depending on your point o

Well, that's it. I'm now all out of finished stuff to post. Volume 2 of Gamma World is stuck in writer's block. Episode 9 of Star Trek Calypso is stuck in writer's block. Episode 4 of Star Wars Force Adept is stuck in writer's block. I only just finished posting Volume 4 of BattleTech, so I got nothing there.

So it's gonna be a long while before post anything new. A longer than long while if my writer's block don't go away. All I have left is old stuff I dumped on the electronic shelf because I wasn't happy with it. So that's the way it is.
