I once had a concept of one of my characters joining an Ascension Quest 
and meeting their world's Makers.  (This was when the prime motive force 
of my world was role-playing games.)  Eventually this concept became the 
Powernaut 2011 comic, only my role was filled by a Cosmic Reset Button. 
  Just as well.

(And then there's that time I guest-starred in the RACCies Ceremony.)

That's dramatic, to say the least.  I hope you're okay.

Speaking just for myself, I'm hoping I'll be more motivated to produce 
Powernaut Comics when I get done with the current story.  Honestly, I 
flip between Powernaut story lines most of the time.  Maybe I should try 
that now.

The soldiers presented a pathetic but inspiring spectacle. The
hospitals were crowded with sick and wounded; the walls were
gradually crumbling under incessant shell fire, yet that garrison
of heroes remained undaunted.

It was as Buck said, "just as if they had been Americans."
