CCSF 2012 Day 0: Prequel to a Journey


Written by Jessica as Part of the Shee Journey Series

My life was defined by the Shee Intergalactic Research Institute. Many of my fellow Shee enjoyed a good laugh over tea every now and then, for the idea of intergalactic research was never more than a dream. Until now... My studies were always purely data driven, based on scenarios of our ancestors' creations surviving. Norns were the most prominent, although I also touched upon research about Grendels and Ettins. A final breakthrough in technology provided us with the means to traverse the long forgotten regions where our creations were abandoned. Based on my scientific knowledge and ability to brew the best tea, I was chosen to set off on a course through the stars. My goal would be simple: To gather any surviving beings and bring them back for further research and study at the institute.

None will escape, as it should be. To understand how these Norns, Grendels, and Ettins have survived is paramount to advancing the Shee. It was decided that my crew would consist of only the most vital: The disclaimers and liability forms I signed took days to read through, and even the creators of this spacecraft had some doubts as to its abilities. I will be the proverbial test subject, as I myself gather test subjects. Quite a paradox. The mission will commence tomorrow, with my required daily logs necessary to transmit information back to the Shee Intergalactic Research Institute. The beginning of a new age is at hand. At my hand, truth be told.

From Jessica: "This prequel is the beginning of a short story series that will be released in parts each day. The main goal is to introduce the day with a tie-in to a specific world theme, but there will also be a story woven throughout the CCSF 2012! If it all seems rather mysterious, it should be: The Shee are still very much unknown, and I wanted to make sure that this mystery stayed intact. Enjoy this series!"

Pirate-Rob: Thanks! These introductions will be the start to each day, though I promise that things will start to get more interesting as the journey begins. I'm pretty sure this spacecraft will be overflowing before long!

Does the spaceship have a name?

Discover Albia said...

Pirate-Rob: Nope, no name for the spacecraft. I'm hoping that this storyline inspires some to participate in some of the Activities, particularly the Shee Design Contest and Space Travel Contest! Depending on the way the story plays out, the ship may get a name in the future. I guess we'll see!

I'm definitely entering the Shee drawing contest! I know exactly which shee to draw...

Pirate-Rob: Awesome! I can't wait to see your entry!
