A lot of what's going on right now is Repercussions, but not all. Here's what I've got front of mind, right now. Thoughts and reminders welcome. I'm putting this VERY ROUGHLY in order of "this really needs some love most, at the moment", in deference to folks who haven't see as much story-arc time. (Similar to but not to be confused with spotlight time.) Expect that order of things to shift, and for things to be happening at once. Ghost Girl 1. The Wounds of the World: What are they. Whose are they? Can we heal them, and if so how? Several entities and/or groups have skin in the game here, on one side or the other. (Vyortovia, Rook, Doctor Infinity, Magus Everard, AEGIS, Sepiaverse, non-exclusive and in no particular order.) 2. Pandemonium Rising: That hasn't gone away, and may in fact be getting worse. Concord 3. Rainbow Warriors: Sol's replacement is
on the way, or already here. They want to know WTF happened to Sol, and
what's up with the walking, talking... 4. Keynome: Which is
an item of interest for Farlander, the Concordance, Rook, Vyortovia...
and pretty much everyone else. With Great Power Come a Great Big Target
On Your Back. Harry Harry doesn't exactly have hooks direct in him, but he cares about a lot of stuff. Points 4, 5, and 6 are both likely to connect to Rook in various ways. Points 4, 5, and 7 both connect to the HHL and the Gales. Leo, Alycia, Jason 5. The Dark Side: Both Link and Charade have connections to the criminal side of the world, via family members. I've spun my wheels on that a bit with Link, but his Dad's made an offer juicy enough to at least consider, and Charade's Reformed playbook has some criminal-facing moves that mean we're going to see more of that stuff, so hopefully the combined weight of both characters' focus will drive us that way and find some resolution. 6. AEGIS Follies: Again, both Link and Charade have some arrows here, because they're both being handled by AEGIS to greater or lesser degrees, and there are more than a few questions at least Link has for them about mistakes that have been made (where's Link's dad? wasn't he in CUSTODY? et tu, Snowman? stuff like that). 7. With our Brains Combined: Three SGHGs working in close proximity will have repercussions for years to come. I'd like to recognize and do some stuff with that, and have already started the ball rolling there. These will likely be small-but-worrisome plots. +Harry 8. Dark Pasts This is kind of the mirror side of 7, with digging out old badness from the history of heroics. It's nice to kind of break it out, but: A. I may have forgot a plotline you were really hoping to see happen, and if so mention it. B. It still feels like a lot going on, so I'm on the lookout for connecting threads and common denominators (demon-innators) that let us simplify the equation a bit. Thoughts welcome.
