"(OOTR15) M5 Taken by Storm, cont'd"
 
   First thread's getting a bit unwieldy. Let's have another one.

StarRanger4 said:

>Emily's an Earthbender? where did that come from? were you
>deliberately hiding it, or was I just clueless and overlooked hints
>you'd already thrown out?

... well, she did say "I'm an earthbender" back in Goodbye & Hello, when Korra asked her if she could handle herself in a fight. :)

>The house... DAAAAANG. Sounds impressive, but I'm still having
>trouble visualizing it. doubt we're lucky enough there is a reference
>image for it anywhere?

Not yet, but there will be once it's had a little more screen time. It has features I don't want to show first in a metadocument.

I did, in fact, "prototype" Bellehaven in The Sims 3; the game model doesn't look exactly like the one in-story, but it's close enough for development work.

>I see Temzin has taught Korra from the Myagi school. If best defense
>no be there, so much better to take enemy firepower and use it on him!

Oh, she was doing that kind of thing long before Tenzin played any part in her training. Using the other guy's fire against him is - well, it's not Firebending 101, but it's probably one of the first things they cover in 201.

>Corwin as earthbender flows so naturally I'm certain that you'd
>already exposed us to it and I've just forgotten when/where

Here and there. As Matt pointed out, it first appeared at his wedding back in Try, Try Again (as did the person who taught it to him), and was fairly prominent in What's Past Is Prologue when Korra maneuvered him into subbing for the Fire Ferrets' usual EB in an exhibition match.

   I do have to wonder what Cheongs idea of Korra 'growing up' would be. I mean, I'd like to think it wasn't the 'superweapon obeying orders' sort of nonsense, but this chapter has shown that he's not the smartest guy around. His and Korra's next meeting should be interesting... I wonder if Kyoshi will make another appearance.

Now that I think about it, what are the odds he was involved in the last case of the White Lotus living down to the stereotype? (Damn, I'm really feeling sorry for the poor guys in the organisation that actually get how Korra works and are happy to help.)

I got the impression that he thought that what the Avatar needs is to get on to the next incarnation, finally.

He's not that much of a radical. (And if he were, he would be in for a grave disappointment.) More that he finds her irritatingly frivolous and easily distracted, and he has pretty significant misgivings about these New People. He's not old enough to realize that she's actually become more like herself since she went Outside in the wake of the Spirit Incident of 271.

It's not unlike the reason why she doesn't do meditation as regular sages understand it - "still water is dead water" - and Cheong doesn't have the cultural background to (if you will pardon the pun) fathom that attitude. His roots are mainly in the Earth Kingdom, where the phrase "for pity's sake will you light somewhere already" is not an uncommon viewpoint. :)

   Good God, I feel like I just sat through "A Good Man Goes To War" all over again. I half-expected the Paternoster Gang to show up, though I imagine with how heavy the drama was this outing, Strax's comically serious attitude would have seemed out of place. Still, this felt very much like the first part of a two-parter, ending on a wham of a cliffhanger. The deaths of two villains and one promising new character, the introduction of a powerful new player, the revelation that the Black Rose has more reach and influence than hinted at and that the rot in the White Lotus went deeper than it seemed, the return of a wayward character and what seems is the ending of a romance (I'd say two, but Wakaba is the forgiving type), and then the final wham when we realize that the whole battle has been a sleight-of-hand while the real target was where we couldn't see them. And that's not including all the emotional fallout that all those events will bring with them.

The icing on the cake was Lin's introduction in the post-credits. I've debated a couple times with asking if we'd ever see her in UF, figuring you had something up your sleeve. Glad to see my patience was rewarded.

Well, they have turned up in one of the mini-stories, so they must be lurking somewhere in Oriphos. I'm hoping we'll find out in the next exciting episode.

And Strax's attitude is never out of place. It just is.

OK, let's! "Taken By Storm" was an awesome storm, and well worth the wait. The title foreshadowed quite effectively. Great work, people! You've earned "TheOtherSean Seal of Approval." (That and a dollar will get you a cup of cheap coffee.)

Midway through the assault, I was thinking the situation was getting especially bad, and wondered if Corwin was able to summon Big O on Diqui or not. A couple of paragraphs later he was unconscious, and it was a moot point.

It's a shame Annabelle's great-uncle didn't hang around. He might have come in handy in Republic City or at the Fort. Come to think of it, I don't recall them existing as team in UF, but I think the Avengers in general would have come in handy in either location that day. Wakaba sounds like she pitched in pretty well, but it seems like they could have used all the help they could have gotten.

Anyhow, great story, and I look forward to the next installment.

I don't think they're a thing... but there's a Thor, Iron-Man, Hulk and Captain America - one of whom was an Avenger back in the Marvel'verse. So having them team up with Tony making remarks about "Hey, this feels familiar" when none of the others have met before would be possible.

   I have to admit I don't recall Black Widow, Wasp or any other Avengers in UF so far. Although remembering everyone in UF is even harder than remembering who's been in the Avengers.

No idea about Janet, though.

As far as I can recall, Jan hasn't appeared in UF. If she ever does, she will presumably be single.

Hulk, Thor, Ironman, and Black Widow are 80% of the Avengers from the first movie - the only one missing is the less-interesting Hawkeye. They all know UF Gryphon. If the illustrious staff of Eyrie Productions are sending all and sundry against Oriphos to reclaim the lost children in a future installment, adding the Avengers to the team would certainly be feasible. Of course, that would turn the snark level to 11 - imagine Nall and Tony Snark (er, Stark) in the same scene. Danger!

In my imagination, Kate Bishop (the more interesting Hawkeye, in my opinion) is a bored socialite who wants something of greater substance than being a part of the Grand Tour that New Avalon's wealthy have.

However, it is perhaps worth bearing in mind that they don't all know each other at the moment, and that the UF-universe Thor is not the Marvel Thor.

Also, Steve would be sad that you left him out.

> - the only one missing is the less-interesting Hawkeye.

In UF, at least three of Jeremy Renner's characters are all the same guy. It's not clear whether "Clint Barton" is his real name, but it's believed that his archery skills stem from Order of St. Ignatius training undertaken as a means of recovering from the double traumas of a career as an Earthforce explosive ordnance disposal technician and a subsequent forcible "recruitment" into an ill-advised super-soldier program.

As such, he's not THAT uninteresting. :)

   Good to know about Hawkeye.

It seems very probable that Captain America (a, if not the, Deputy Chief of the IPO), Iron Man (major IPO contractor) and the Hulk (alter ego of an IPO scientist) are at least aware of each other although Tony may not have ever mentioned having been on a super-team with their dimensional counterparts.

I could see Tony having a mental rolodex for 'if I need to assemble some Avengers' that includes both the other two and he'd likely add UF! Thor, Clint Barton and Natasha Romanova to the list if he came across them.

Whether or not he'd ever get the chance and whether it'd work is quite another matter.

But this has turned into a lengthy digression.

Heh, that sounds a bit like the situation with the gods of the Discworld, who all have a bunch of other identities (with the aid of a box full of wigs, false noses and stick-on moustaches and beards).

Sure, but they largely didn't know each other in the Avengers movie, either. Nick Fury kind of threw them together, though a few had at least received some type of briefing ahead of time.

>Also, Steve would be sad that you left him out.

How on Earth did I forget about Cap? Isn't he getting a little long in the tooth in the UF-verse? OTOH, rescuing the boss's only grandchild might be kind of important to him.

He already sounds more interesting than his portrayal in the movies. Maybe you should direct Avengers 3. You could certainly do a better job of avoiding controversial tweets than Joss Whedon managed.

According to his BPGD file, his biological age is 86 years in 2409. (We don't get to count the years he was in suspended animation, after all.)

Between twenty-fifth century science and the super-soldier serum, he might go a lot longer than we'd expect; the survivors of Project Rebirth II have seen over 250 years and are still doing quite well.

   With the references to what I think might be Christmas in Sendai in this story, is that story coming anytime soon in some form, or is it still in a Symphony 3 holding pattern (along with A Day at the Races), or even been cancelled?

Christmas in Sendai is on the "maybe someday, maybe not" pile. A Day at the Races is very probably not happening.

Honestly, I'm more surprised the rest of the room heard the question and kept a straight face.

My personal take is the Garnet is an accidental acquisition and Annabelle was the primary target. I can imagine Akio would have lot of options open to him with a child of his blood, let alone one with the blood of the gods as well. None of said options would be good for the child.

To quote something from one of my favorite books:

"Harry, I'm not sure if you noticed this. But things did not turn out well for the last monster who raised his hand against your child. Or any of his friends. Or associates. Or anyone who worked for him. Or for most of the people he knew. Whether or not that was your intention, you did establish a rather effective precedental message to the various predators, should they ever learn of her relationship to you."

- Michael Carpenter to Harry Dresden, Skin Game


I can totally see the Duelists going full-on Chichén Itzá on the Black Rose to get Annabelle and Garnet back.

for those lacking context, the vampire chief (from whom 99.999999% of the other vampires of the type were "descended") tried to use the girl in question in a magic ritual to destroy Harry and all his living relatives. In the end, 99.999999% + 1 of the vampires of that type were destroyed when the ritual sacrifice was swapped out.

   ...ah! I see there's a mention of a friendly desert community where the sun is hot; the moon is beautiful; and mysterious lights pass overhead as they all pretend to sleep.

   Yup. Night Vale has been mentioned as a part of Diqiu (and more specifically as having an MLB team, the Night Vale Spiderwolves), since the start of the Diqiu suite.

   In retrospect, I'm sure I noticed it before, but it only just now clicked.

Still, quite pleased that it's in the expanded UFverse.

The Spiderwolves are Korra's favorite MLB team that isn't her MLB team. They're always either really good or really, amazingly, why-are-you-clowns-in-this-league bad, but either way, they're fun to watch. :)

I understand that their team bench is a little more crowded an other teams, what with the members of the Sherriff's Secret Police hanging around.

   That and how they have to officially deny that one of their players, Erica, exists.

The weirdest part of playing an away game against the Spiderwolves is that nobody comes to see them play in person. Everyone stays home and watches it on TV. It's a really nice facility, and you get a handful of visiting-team fans, but it's like the locals aren't allowed in the stadium or something. Also, nobody can figure out why it's called Dog Park.

   Gotta say one thing for the Spiderwolves - their play-by-play announcer has the best voice in the league.

Not to mention the shadowy figures. The City Council would like to remind us to think of them.

   So, when Utena slices off Anubishu's hand, the narrative just sort of drops the fact that she is now a dísir.

Checking for other use of this term yielded that this means she is now a very minor goddess from Shepard's BPGD entry.

When did this happen?

She married one of the Æsir; it sorta comes with it. (She's not entirely aware of it, even though Vigdis Brightblade warned her it would happen back in Clarion Call; when she first manifested her godhead in Familiar Spirits she didn't actually notice, though many of those around her sure did. :)

(The singular is dís, btw.)

I suspect she thought that Vigdis was being metaphorical. In her defense, she was more than a little frazzled.

   The (cont'd) part reminded me,

While I was fairly sure(considering the area of the forums) that that wasn't it, my first reaction was STILL that the Mythbusters had ended up in some fairly bad weather.
