Chapter 34: "States of Mind"

Date Point: October 11y10m3w AV
Planet Guvendruduvundraguvnegrugnuvenderelgureg-ugunduvug, Capitol planet of the Guvnuragnaguvendrugun Confederacy

An omniscient observer might have noticed that two of the most important messages to ever arrive on the homeworld of the Guvnurag people did so, purely by coincidence, on the same day and in consecutive packages.

8 Tidying Up

Messier 24
Mission day: 3

Sergeant Daar (Tigger)

The third day was always when things settled into routine. Daar didn’t really know why, ‘cuz that was prol’ly some complicated psychology stuff (maybe he should read up?) but he did know how it worked, practically speaking. Daar always pondered morning thoughts like that when he was on mission, in the few minutes before he had to wake up for real and deal with things.

Military spaceport, HMS Sharman, Folctha, Cimbrean

Champion & Sergeant Daar (Tigger) of Clan Stoneback

“I dunno,” pondered Daar as he examined the picture, “That’s a lotta green fur. After the stupid bear-snake—”

“Doom-noodle.”

4 The First Ring

Overnight workhouse, City of Wi Kao, Planet Gao
About two weeks later, shortly after returning Fiin to his friends

Brother and Stud Tyal of Clan Stoneback

“Office of the Champion.”

“It’s Tyal.”

“One moment.”

“Genshi.”

2 Kin and Clan

Fiin, on trial for Clan Stoneback

He made it! Fiin didn’t know if his acceptance was Daar’s doing, but Fiin liked to believe that was true. He was still a bit awe-struck by their meeting; Fiin was the biggest and most skilled and widely-experienced young laborer in his workhouse so he wasn’t easily menaced by anyone, no matter how strong they were or how impressive their Clan. But Daar?

People weren’t wrong. Daar was a living legend.
