I was having trouble figuring out just what kind of tale to tell. But, thankfully, Muro got bored in chat and began spouting out random words (I love it when he does that). Here's a snippet of the convo for reference (mainly mine):
(18:23:23) MysticMoon: I was so set on doing NaNoWriMo this year. Let's see how coherent I am come the 1st
(18:23:32) Murometz: do it!
(18:23:40) Murometz: writing makes a writer
(18:24:01) Murometz: (im better at giving advice than recieving or practicing it )
(18:24:25) MysticMoon: That's ok, though. Sometimes that bit of cheerleading is enough to push me over the edge
(18:25:21) Murometz: Salacious Centaurs....go!!!
(18:25:32) Murometz: and Mimas
(18:25:38) Murometz: also, Fruit Fly

(18:26:02) Murometz: i mean, yes
(18:26:06) MysticMoon: Salacious Centaurs on Mimas?
(18:26:11) Murometz: and fruit flies
(18:26:13) MysticMoon: That could actually be kinda fun
(18:26:27) MysticMoon: Old school space opera pulp / b-movie goodness
(18:26:41) Murometz: "cheese rind" must *somehow* appear in the sub, *somewhere*
(18:26:49) MysticMoon: Evil fruit fly race that's holding the moon hostage
(18:26:56) MysticMoon: THeir scientists are mad geniuses
(18:27:08) Murometz: what the hell kinda fruit are they eating, man? lol
(18:27:16) Murometz: i want some
(18:27:18) MysticMoon: It was a cheese rind dipped in atomics that changed them
(18:27:26) Murometz: hmmm

(18:28:53) Murometz: cheese-rind needs re-work
(18:29:25) Murometz: one more word...Lagubrious
(18:29:29) MysticMoon: You don't like the atomic cheese rind?
(18:29:48) Murometz: and lastly, Aeromancy
(18:30:01) Murometz: im not loving it lol
(18:30:23) MysticMoon: The fruit flies have made the moon rather lugubrious. They prefer things all dark and dismal
(18:30:25) MysticMoon: Hmm

(18:32:48) MysticMoon: Even if she likes it when people underestimate her
(18:33:05) Murometz: needs a twist then we bank her
(18:33:28) MysticMoon: The lead evil fruit fly doctor killed her lover
(18:33:35) MysticMoon: In a bombing attack
(18:33:37) Murometz: does she have a peculiar speaking voice? Does she have tourettes? Is she heartbroken secretly?
(18:33:48) MysticMoon: She's out for blood

(18:50:51) Murometz: everything with Shia LeBoeuf in it, sucks.
(18:51:00) Murometz: just sayin
(18:51:12) MysticMoon: I take that as a given
I'll make something more coherent out of this later. Just wanted to get the basics down.
Add to that some good ol' Golden Oldie Rock 'N Roll, some Psychobilly, the mush floating around in my brain from reading '45 Psychobilly Retropocoalypse
, thoughts of old fashioned diners, prop planes that turn into rocket ships, beer and burgers, and whatever other randomness decides to visit my brain, and I think I got enough to get started come Saturday.
