Yana dressed up as somebody from Roadside Picnic. (The book the video game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is based on.)

Excuse my ignorance, but why are they holding an election now? A vote of no confidence or is this a normal thing?

Yana and Martin Korelenko when Yana was about eight, at the Holy Saturday/Easter vigil. Since they start around 11 PM and end around 2 AM, kids often sleep through lots of it. Yana’s dad was on Pillow Duty and dozed off himself for a while.

What Cooke said. Energy and personality and a sense of genuine emotion and weight is really good stuff. Also, a nice balance of the level of detail -- not so little it's bland, not so much it's confusing.

I should point out two things:

It's reeeeally hard (at least according to the pros who study how evolutionary pressures affect behavior) to apply behavioral ecology to humans because we're sapient and therefore Weird, and also that being deeply social (there's a reason we go frothing bonkers in solitary) and altruism are evolutionarily selected for in many species.

(I somehow managed to like and dislike the same post. Aaaaugh.)
Well, you could have like, a hundred other good buddies you hang out with all the time. This study was only about the platonic spouse/honorary sibling type friendships, which makes sense that there wouldn't be tons of.

Bear's post lines up with the research, too -- if you define friends as the really long-term serious ones, the average is 2--3 per person. I can't find the study/paper right now, sorry.

As your pennace for this grave sin, you must read a kinda decompressed sprawling comic. (points pointedly at sig)

Nah really, I never would have found it otherwise, so glad you're around.

Aside from staining sheets of processed woodpulp, I use Corel Painter when I need to clean up a scan/throw in something digital, plus IrfanView for lettering. I'm all fancy like that. :P

Spoilered on account of being an entire mini prequel comic of Iaroslav and Chekhov in Afghanistan in the 80s. Words by T.S. Elliot.

I should clarify -- I don't mean "correct" English as such -- ok, you know Huckleberry Finn? Not a character in that book speaks standard "proper" English, but you always know what's going on, and everyone (I dunno how to say this) sounds like themselves. Jim sounds different than Finn and so on.

I'm by no means pushing for prim and proper English coming from a furious infantrywoman, just ... I'm not sure, maybe read it out loud and see how it flows? As I said, I'm no writer, just a mildly obsessive reader.

Maybe the best way to think of it is the difference between the "mistakes" a fluent English-speaker makes when speaking causally, and the actual mistakes you make when tackling a second language. The first ones don't sound funny to a native speaker, the second ones do. Or something. I'm zonked and reserve the right to not make sense.

I am no writer, as Brutus is, but I do read stuff. Take me with a grain of salt.

Like "Were they given warning of this fucking plan?" should be something like "Did anyone warn them about this fucking plan?" or "Were they warned about this fucking plan?" or whatever. Also, it seems like the style of swearing is very modern American, which jars against the more old-fashioned phrasing. Anemy also uses exactly the same phrasing when talking to the dude she beat up as with her daughter -- while most people maintain some consistency, they also sound different depending on who they're talking to. (I like the little nod to real lion biology in that the females hunt, btw. SCIENCE!)
Come to think of it, I'd focus on making sure everyone sounds a little different -- you know how you see a message on Skype or whatever and you know which friend it is by how they phrase something before you even look at the name? That.

Another example that stood out to me:
"You dangle hope in their face and crush it in front of them! Crippling them as their hopes and dreams are lost! That Migina, is something only deserving to your hated of enemies!" I'd change it to something like
"Dangling hope in their faces and crushing it in front of them, crippling them as their hopes and dreams are lost! That, Migina, is something only your most hated enemies deserve!" The phrasing is confusing enough in places I have to pause and sort of sort through it to get at the meaning. I'm pretty (overly?) literal, but hey.

(As a side note: the horses threw me off. Are they sapient too and just kinda quiet guys?)

Regardless, good luck!
