In the spirit of the season, I thought I'd put this question out there: what would be the best Christmas present the Honorverse could give you? Plot, characters, relationships, space battles... have at ye! :mrgreen:

(Yes, you'll get my list later. I haven't finished checking it twice. :lol: )

A good solid look at the post-Solarian political order. The SL has been collapsing for years now and I'd really like to see how everything shakes out afterward.

The Stephen Hawking Award

I want Emily Alexander to walk again. She is a woman paralyzed, yet her value to her Star Kingdom has been priceless.

It would be fitting if Emily vacationed on Grayson with her family, and on a holy Sunday in church with the cleansing power of joyous tears, poured by faith the size of a mustard seed, was healed... having met her test.

OUCH!

Stands Firm!


He is the reason, for the season.

What better confirmation for The Church of Humanity Unchained.

Oh what it would do for Grayson/Manticore relations and The Mayhew Restoration.

On XMass day to get a news flash that the movie rights have been picked up by a top studio.

Sorry to be a Grinch but you want to introduce magical fantasy to a hard science series?

I want to see Hamish Alexander in command of a fleet again, and to do something there that reminds the readers why everyone in the RMN thought he was the best they had for a long, long time.

Absolutely not.


SLN: Sorry to be a Grinch but you want to introduce magical fantasy to a hard science series?

RMN: Who says my ships are out of range?

True.

But a certain Dr. Harrington having a eureka moment during the Christmas service that then leads to Emily walking again would both count and be legitimate for hard sci fi.
