BTW--this is the music that helped me set the mood for the naming scene. Bear McCreary = AWESOME.
Mother of Pearl, that was a good read.
I like the way you handled that, and to have a vessel named after Ngaer is an honour, no matter which race it belongs to.
I even had a tear in my eye.
I maintain that like Diane Duane for the Romulans, you have done for the Cardassians and I am impressed.
Diane Duane is practically my "idol" as far as Trek writing...that is the kindest thing anybody could say. Thank you so much.
And I am glad to know the scene had an impact.

Oh, I love the idea of naming the ship with Ngaer's name, sort of.
I also like all the detailed picture you draw with words. I never had patience and skill to do that, I was told I did well characters' small talk, but never was good enough with in-depth picturing. I should learn from you
Conversely, I suck at small talk. I probably would have something to learn from you.
And thank you!
We have not because we ask not . . .
I've just read the first couple chapters of this work. I am completely blown away! This treasure has been here two years and I am only now discovering it! I am such a dunderhead!
Riveting from the first chapter - gorgeous characterization - you give them depth and subtlety I didn't expect. I don't have enough superlatives! I am so excited to have found this!
Thank you so much for reading--again, it's an honor that you were willing to give it your time.
You've been missing out, then. This is one of the most elaborate, detailed and well thought out stories posted in Fanfic. This last entry is a clear example of the beauty of this work. N-your descriptions of the ancient armor were superlative, your funereal ceremony was wonderfully portrayed. I can't shower enough praise on this installment.
Thanks for reading.
I actually SAW that armor in a dream, as clear as if it were real life...that's where I got the idea. If you're interested, there's a link to the drawing at the top of the post.
