Read some Sutherland stories on United Trek if you want to see how far to push it. I like what you are doing and am looking forward to more. You have a distinct, relaxed style that make s it flow in ways mine just doesn't.(Thus far). I'm going to be picking over what you write for ideas, I can tell you that. Not plot ideas but ways of presenting things.
I like how you do it.
I actually push it pretty hard. NC-17 hard, so I'll be linking off-site for that one. Just that particular act.
I'm actually neck-deep in writing, atm. I'm working on an original sci-fi novel for submission to a publisher, plus the third episode of Full Speed Ahead.
I'll post the third act shortly
