Z-Lin bio

Day 28. 82 pages, 37,008 words.

This morning I was mostly busy writing, but I hammered out a bit of meta-writing as well, for the aki’Pedia (remember the aki’Pedia? Good times). I give you Commander Z-Lin Clue.

Nothing else for today. Any amendments or questions or suggestions are welcome!

Also artists’ impressions of the great grand-scion of the Elevator People, and arguable saviour of the Trampsters if not the galaxy, please feel free to check in. Artwork can be added to the wiki no worries.

– Written in the wee small hours of the morning. Posted on my lunch break.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/

  1. Nice work, good detail!

      Thanks, I appreciate it. Something about the aki’Pedia work speaks to me on a technical writer level. This bio is a good example of taking a couple of thousand pages of rambling material and distilling the main data points about a single component of the whole.

      Today I added cryptoadiplase, for no real reason than that I stumbled over it and figured what the Hell. It’s mentioned once in a throw-away footnote in Bad Cow, but it connects up to a lot of general notes about the developing nations and politics and conflicts in the near-future history of Earth, so it seemed like a place to start.

      It’s a huge gorram job, might as well start with a nice nerve agent.
