    Summary

    Science fiction loosely based on the Qeng Ho from Vernor Vinge's "A Deepness in the Sky", about the question of what it's like to work on a ten thousand year old legacy code base.

    Mostly slice of life from the perspective of a programmer aboard an interstellar trading ship with little over-arching plot (though that may change over time).

    This is a mirror with the canonical version living on my blog, but it's probably much easier to read the archives here.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "Wasn’t how that how this entire tragedy had started? She couldn’t bear the idea of making a decision and so she’d run away, and then let Gregory make it for her.

    No, she thought. I must stop being afraid and bear this until it is done and then, then I’ll consider what to do next."

    Summary

    This is how the world actually works: instead of leading soldiers into battle, Shang is given command over a disorganized bunch of conscripted civilians who don't know the business end of a sword. Instead of fighting to defend China, he is stuck training these misfits into something resembling soldiers. And instead of being devoted to a wife or his job as a soldier, he is becoming attracted to one of his men.

    Bandits came for Lalasa’s family and burned the whole farm out, except for her, because she had been at the river washing clothes. Lalasa did not miss her father or her brothers for all the long years of her life, which should tell you something about her.

    She cried for them anyway, and that should tell you something too.

    --

    Retelling of Page and Squire from Lalasa's POV.
