The Émigrés

Because it occurred to me that someone other than me might like to see my absurdly detailed list of the 23 Émigrés who Lorne rescued in "Exsul" in the event they call The Haegira. Following the second-wave of self-imposed Terran exiles, the original Émigrés are sometimes called The First Wave or The Red Émigrés. The origins of the second term are disputed, but may relate either to the carmine robes later favoured by many of the immigrants, or else the semi-violent undertones of their departure.

This is really cool; I've been wondering about this, too. I love how detailed you are XD Does that make writing fics easier or worse?
Easier, sometimes. Except for when i get distracted by details and backstories and stuff. As I was saying the other day, I have this backstory for Zelenka where his mother's father's brother was a professor at Masaryk University during WWII and was executed at one of the concentration camps during the purge of their science department, which took a quarter of their staff. And I've this rather elaborate one for Teldy I've been mostly sitting on for 2 years now until I can get to a place where it makes sense to share it. And I've a coupe of other little things floating around.

But mostly its easier. It makes things constant. I've got like a notebook or two filled with details, plus all the stuff I post online. It keeps everything uniform. And coherent.
