I'd like the story of the relief efforts following the Final War. It was a time of hope and charity in the wake some of the Honorverse's humanity's darkest days. It could have done a lot better with products in the long term than the Solarian League, but the Beowulf Code has been one fine result and all the lives that were saved right then count for a lot.

Some of the sidecharacters! What happens to Lars, Berry´s brother? A few words would be enouhg like "He is chasing Girls at University" or so! What is with Benjamin Mahew´s childs? Honor was shocked as she saw Benjamin last time (In my Country is the last book or books not published yet), what are his daughters doing? What happens when Benjamin dies?

A Little bit more about the wormholes?

One to Beowulf
one to Basilisk
one to the Andermans
one to Trevor´s star
one to Lynx/Talbott

Makes two missing! Maybe I only don´t remember them if there was something written about them.

Maybe if DW want to put the whole Honorverse upside down, what is, if mankind meet´s an technologed advanced Alien species?

Also, and this is purely personal, I would love to see even just a passing mention of a gay or lesbian character.

There has been one already in Honor Among Enemies, her name was Elizabeth Showforth. Unfortunately she was a vicious bitch of a character and one of the ships bullies. She also proposed a rather nasty way of killing a popular character (none of this was due to her sexuality - she was just a nasty piece of work). She was later vaporized while locked in the brig when the ship fought a battle-cruiser.

Several characters in Beowulfs BSC have been mentioned to be bi-sexual, which is also quite common on Beuwulf anyway. And Honor's wife Emily has even stated that if she wasn't crippled she would probably find Honor very attractive too.

Apparently certain characters we've already seen are gay or lesbian, it's in their extended bio information in RFC's private series bible. But he said there hasn't been a particular reason for it to come up. (When you think about it we probably know about less than 10 character's marital status or dating habits)

RFC did say that Mark Sarnow is gay (and happily married).
It would be nice to get a short story, or a chapter or two about how he (and his husband) are adjusting to being out in (Manticoran side of) Selesia and the burden and responsibility of running the fleet out there (and showing a bit of how his husband, as a navy spouse, is helping him adjust to it).

Stories I'd like to see (Have said some of this before)

Larger story arcs (Think Manticore Rising type arc)
1- Haven from its founding up to the current point. Book one largely on its founding up to the advent of the BLS. Book two would be its expansion and descent into the People's Republic. Book three would be the first Manticore-Haven war. Book four the build-up between wars and restoration of the Republic.

2- Manticore's founding. Book one is largely on Old Earth and the creation of the colony, the trust, and everything that Roger Winton did behind the scenes to modify his DNA (Winton's are genies) and provide for the safety of the colony. Book two being the actual landing and early struggles ending with the Free Brotherhood. Book three being the plague years ending right before Manticore Rising starts.

The two of those together I feel would fill in an incredible amount of story.

Shorter stories:
1- The Final War
2- Founding of the League
3- Saganami, St. James, and Ellen D'Orville
4- Sarnow in Silesia
5- Sonia and the actual development of FTL, Ghost Rider, Apollo
6- Founding of Grayson and the Grayson Civil War. (Could be a book unto itself, similar to A Beautiful Friendship being split into 3-4 different stories

Jonathan S. mentioned Sarnow; another (albeit minor) character is Alexandra Havicheck, one of the triumvate ruling Erewhon in what I call the "Cachat and Zilwiki" triolgy.

But sexual relations simply aren't that important to the MWW in telling his stories; he's more like Asimov in that way. Doesn't detract from his writing.

Add in the RMN version and you have "the Three Stooges", but I love the idea all the same.
