Recall that diplomatically speaking, she can cheat. While others need a Treecat to taste emotions, Honor can do it without Nimitz. Pretty soon most people in the know will recognize that Treecats are living lie detectors. Very few will know that Honor has that capability as well.

Given that skillset, I doubt either of her Liege Lord/Lady will eschew handing her all the toughest diplomatic hand grenades. Panache and style are well and good, but completely successful is much better.

Honor will have so much to offer for so long. In the capacity of instructor, she'd be invaluable shaping little Honorettes in the manner that Admiral Courvosier shaped her. In memory of the Admiral, I imagine it'd also do her mind some good.

Those at the top could spread out to do a stint at Sag Isle themselves and also spread out even further to assist or to annoy Hemphill sitting in on the WDB.



There is that and I can also see BOTH of her Liege Lords, Queen Elizabeth and Protector Benjamin (and his eventual successor) taking shameless advantage of her abilities as a diplomatic troubleshooter or Special Ambassador much like ADM Courvosier was in HotQ, she gets handed the hottest potatoes and being "The Salamander" handles them with panache and style.

With all the advantages of Prolong and one of the highest standards of medical care available in the known galaxy, unless something very untoward happens (RFC forbid) she will be around for a very long time, leaving her indelible mark on history.

My deepest desire for Uncompromising Honor is an e-Arc as soon as it has been reviewed by editors. David mentioned that he will turn in the manuscript at the end of June. That means an e-Arc may be available pretty darn soon.

Please, e-Arcs to quiet our tortured souls!

I can skip the earc if we can get better editing. Not just copy editing.

Sure, but the tentative release is a year away. Surely, we can get an e-Arc earlier than that?

Considering that the book is due to be handed in "at the end of June" and that passed already, an eArc really early would really be appreciated by all of us.

After all, if we're going to wait a year (and I deeply resent that but what can you do?), why not let us see it a little earlier? Also, that would be a real incentive for the eArc. Instead of three months early, wouldn't it be nice for a six month hedge...or nine months?
