NAUTILUS Hiatus Announcement
Start writing a post

Due to a lack of interest, “NAUTILUS: A Lost History and the Arrival of the Del’Tari” will be placed on an indefinite hiatus until further notice. It was a fun endeavor while it lasted, however it clearly was not something to be attempted. Hindsight is 20/20, though, so that figures. Instead, Charlotte Tapp and I will work on our own independent projects for the time being, as well as getting our own lives in order. Will I instead try a different serialized story? Not likely. Not much of a point when there is no readership.

Rather, I shall do what most others do with this site. That is, writing small articles on whatever suits my fancy. Not sure for how long, though. One of the reasons I opted to write a serialized story was I got to write about whatever I chose and knew what it would be about each week. But now, without having direction, I am uncertain what will come next.

And while this is a short announcement to make, there is a quota I must fill in order to get this published for the few people who look at my articles. So, I guess I will dump some information about NAUTILUS that would have been in exposition piece here. So, spoiler alert: top secret NAUTILUS notes to follow (who knows if these will still be valid if we ever revive the story).

“Vise Void” is an alias. His real name is Vensint Darcy. He chose that pseudonym with the knowledge it sounded silly because he was young and wanted to sound like a superhero. Despite the NAUTILUS stories taking place on the NAUTILUS, an organic satellite somewhere far away from Earth, Vise is indeed from Earth and the only ‘terran’ onboard. And no, he was not abducted. Earth is far out of the reaches of other interstellar civilizations.

Kyumi has the title of “Del’Tari”, which in his culture means that he is perceived to be inhabited by the ghost of one of his kind as they were dying. All Del’Tari are given a Dal’Nori who follows and serves them. In some cases, a Dal’Khai will join them, being subservient to the Dal’Nori. It is implied in the prologue that Kyumi’s Dal’Nori and Dal’Khai died at some point prior to his securing passage to the NAUTILUS. And as he is a Del’Tari, he was not the first to start the search for all of the galaxy’s histories and mysteries. Instead, he took up the cause when his namesake perished. His real name and title is, as stated when he meets Heartsease, Kuur’Vah Xiir’Saio. “Xiir’Saio” is one of the most respected titles amongst his kind and means that he was a well-known clanless nomad prior to obtaining the title of Del’Tari.

A character that was going to be introduced was Virile Rramook. She was going to belong to a large species that seemed to be a mix between pangolins and felines. The plan with her was she would be a mechanic who helped repair Kyumi’s suit at some point and would later be a romantic interest for Vise for the sake of hilarity. And yes, this is more vague than the other notes, but I filled my quota.

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
