Actually now that I think about it, it was your idea I just verified it for you and said age progress him to 18 so he could pilot a craft. LOL! Cheesy

That's fine, I'll include acknowledgements to yourself, and to Matt for his timeline.

I do love the idea of Johnny at the controls of a skimmer.. and that 'sleep-teaching' could program him with memories of a life he didn't actually have.

Hmmmmmmmmmm..............

Oh no! A few suggestions here or there or answering your questions does not amount to being a co-author, SnowLeopard. Thanks for that anyway! If you go with anything I may have said you could do what I do on my stories and just credit the idea to so and so. I do that all the time over at Archive as lots of my readers have given me suggestions on what they'd like to see in my stories. Matter of fact I'm putting up a 2nd chapter on an old story that I've been asked for more of. 2 of my readers gave me ideas which I'm going to credit them for. But I'm glad you liked what I just said. Being taught in your sleep sounds like a great idea as well. I think, way back when, I watched an old sci fi movie where that had been done.

Wow! Nice!

And I think he'll have to be 'sleep-taught' in that box.....

(Should I credit you as co-author in this??? )

Yeah, if you were going with AQOP and Johnny was born 1973 and AQOP he was having a birthday when Ed visited the boy and then Johnny was killed. That would have made Johnny around 9 years old. With your story in 1987, give or take a year, Johnny would be 14 or 15. Depending on how you look at it.
I agree, I think an age progression would be in order. Maybe not much. Perhaps about 18 which would make him legally an adult. I could see a young man of that age piloting a space craft. Wink

Thoughts on Johnny...

I note from Matt's excellent timeline that he's given the boy as being born in April 1973, with the events of AQOP taking place in April 1981 (his birthday, I wonder?  Shocked ) In 'Destiny Part 4' I mentioned that  it was Wednesday July 1, which would make the year 1987. If Johnny were maturing at the normal rate in one of those boxes, he would be 14. Perhaps that's still a bit young, so perhaps Sarah should step up the time-rate a bit!

If I didn't have to work for a living or have any other responsibilities I'd love to sit and write all day and post my stories. LOL! Cheesy

About a year ago you certainly did talk about a confrontation between Paul and Johnny. Yes indeed, that one definitely has possibilities!  Cool  Wink

I think somewhere in all our talks I did wish for some type of scene with Johnny trying to kill Paul or possibly really injure him. I believe that's where I was thinking that Ed would be a witness to it and have to choose between the two. Oh you're right so many possibilities it boggles the mind. But you're quite up to the task, my friend. Looking forward to your next installments. Roll Eyes

Ah. well, you'll recall that I mentioned stasis boxes, and one of the Antarctic ones had a mediaeval gent in it... so a few years should be ok!

I haven't yet decided how 'clever' these stasis boxes should be. As you say, would they allow an immature specimen to reach adulthood, and be more useful to them? Would they leave some young specimens in complete stasis? Endless possibilities!

Still not sure about the 'son-kills-father' thing. Star Wars has done that twice already.. But of course it doesn't have to go that far. Hmmmmmm. Perhaps instead Johnny will go after Paul for 'revenge' of some kind.. More possibilities!
