Pike Talk

Note to past self:

When writing notes on a potential story, it would be really helpful if you'd use terms more specific than:

"-tells a little, hints"

and

"-more explanation"

and

"-final battle, decision"

Seriously. Hints at what? What explanation? What decision? Obviously I knew what I was talking about when I was writing this attempted outline, four years ago, but looking at it now... *boggles*

Most bizarre phrase: "bit of Pike talk"--Pike talk? Like... Christopher Pike? Or the dude in the Buffy movie? Or... I really have no clue on that one. And I don't mention this Pike anywhere else in the notes.

The worst thing is, I know I'd figured out a whole bunch of important things about how this world works, but I don't seem to have bothered to write them down. What the hell, 23-year-old me!?

I guess I'll just have to hope what I figure out now is better than the ideas I had then!
