||Tire Iron is having trouble, cut off by Whiskey the the Hole
Well, as the final debate rolled by, I really didn't see enough of it to make an intelligent commentary. (Heh...Halo...) That given, I'll start me some brainstorming for my newish comic project.
Please note, if you're reading this, that I'm a huge fan of Shakespeare, and when I watched the Kenneth Branagh(SP?) version of Hamlet, I was literally moved to tears. We were studying the play in AP Eng 4, which is why I watched it, and I absolutely love that play now. I therefore like to go through and find random lines that relate to my story, and I'm probably going to use them as page titles. Here I will store lines that I like and will want to use at some point.
Act V, Scene I
Hamlet: Alas, poor Yorick. I knew him, Horatio
Hamlet: Dost thou think that Alexander looked o' this fashion i' the earth?
Hamlet: No, faith, not a jot, but to follow him thtither with modesty enough and likelihood to lead it, as thus: Alexander died, Alexander was buired, alexander returneth to dust, the dust is earth, of earth we make loam, and why of that loam, whereto he was converted, might not stop a beer-barrel?
Imperious Caesar, dead and turn'd to clay,
Might stop a hole to keep the wind away:
O, that earth, which kept the world in awe,
Should patch a wall to expel the winter's flaw!
Act V, Scene II
Claudius: And let the ketle to the trumpet speak,
The trumpet to the canoneer without,
The cannons, to the heavens, the heaven to earth
Issue Heading: "Tis too much proved--that with devotion's visage and pious action we do sugar o'er the devil himself."
~Hamlet, Act III, Scene I
Okay, forget all that. I'm thinking more visual now.
P2L1C "What a piece of work is a man!"
P2L2C "How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty,"
P3L1C "In form and moving how express and admirable,"
P3L2C "In action how like an angel,"
P4L1C "In apprehension how like a god!"
Vector: What happened?
Relay: An explosion of some sort, originating in the central fore of the ship and spreading aft with subsquent blasts. Large parts of the internal structure destroyed, stress in the immediate area is severe and declining. Life support, sensors, engines and artificial gravity all offline. Signs of sabotage. Only a few dozen life signs remaining.
Gremlin: The primary power core, most likely. The rest of the power subsystems overloaded, spreading through the ship, and our hibernation cylinders were ruptured in the process. Sabotage suggests possible mutiny. The rest of the ship is highly unstable and could lose critical integrity at any moment.
Vector: Our primary objective is to survive. Suit up and prepare to move out pending further instructions.
Shade: Copy, Affirmative.
Relay: Rachel Wahl
Gremlin: Grant Kobold
Vector: Victor/Valin Kaiser
Shade: Sarah Geist
