Per miyeko's suggestion, I've added a list of characters. It started off as a simple character index, but I've now hyperlinked it to all of the excellent character models that anim8t0rboi rendered for me last December. I've also added links to each chapter in which each character occurs. If this works out, I might have a hypernovel on my hands. I'm sure it isn't the first, but it may be one of the first ones in the SF genre, especially among Nanowrimo blogs.

Please check it out! Comments and feedback are appreciated - and if you want me to add you to the friends list of tanelos, just say so here.

Tane-Los vs. Tanelorn
Hrm... well, I read Part 2 of the Elric Saga (The Vanishing Tower, Bane of the Black Sword, Stormbringer) in 1991. I conceived the concept of the Archniniei-Terionach war in 1988 and the name of Archniniei in the same year, but I may have come up with the details of Tane-Los in 1992, so yes, it's possible that "To Rescue Tanelorn" had some influence.

The similarity is that Tane-Los represents a concept, a balance between opposing forces, an eternal ideal. The difference is that Tane-Los never comes under attack by a third party, nor is she aided by one: she is "rescued" by her founders and later razed by the invaders who once held her against them.

I've added you to the story journal, BTW.

Re: Tane-Los vs. Tanelorn
Thanks. I'm having a go at nano, but tbh I haven't a clue right now about what it will be about. In some ways I like that but in others it makes me nervous -- lots more pressure.

Yay! Welcome to the insanity!
That makes at least five of my LJ friends who are doing it - you, and:

in addition to me and jadziadax, who both finished it last year.

Anybody else?

All aboard! Welcome to the insanity!

*points at figgy*

Lalso, I want to try and avoid SF-fantasy genres and do something gritty and kinda realistic. That adds another level of difficulty because I've never attempted anything like that before.

Which, in turn, brings to my mind Meatloaf's ...by the dashboard light....

How so?
I'm not familiar with the song.

Re: How so?
The recording of just about every song on Meatloaf's Bat out of Hell (both original LP and CD re-release) does not have excellent enunciation. Possibly intentionally, as a faithful replication of the original state of composition. The band went two decades between its first and second (Bat out of Hell II: Back Into Hell) albums due to heroin addiction....

It is quite possible to mishear "Tanelorn" in the lyrics — especially if you are seven years old and don't have the vocabulary to follow the action before the climax.

And yes, the second album has much clearer enunciation, without any decline in amplification.

Re: How so?
The song I referred to is Paradise By The Dashboard Light, although it may be some other song on Bat out of Hell.

That's what I figured
... though I don't believe I've actually heard it.

Enunciate clearly: Freddie Mercury's fried chicken
Great! Another mystery solved.

Now, here's a question for you: does Freddie Mercury of Queen sing "gimme fried chicken" on purpose at the end of "One Vision" or is that something he did because fans thought he slurred the words and there was some earlier controversy?
