Wanna Be Immortalized?

(I'm leaving this open instead of putting it on my NaNo filter, just cause I need a whole bunch of names and you guys are less likely to sue me than random people from my phone book)

In my generation ship, different habitats, structures, towns, etc. have been named after famous people. Those that weren't named to honor people were basically sold off to sponsors, kind of like NASCAR. heh heh. Now, Earth has taken an environmental turn since the nuclear holocaust, so you're more likely to have sponsors like Mount Wilford, named for mountain-loving Jerry Wilford of Wilford's Wool & Sheep Shearing, than you are to see Coca-Cola River or Adidas Bridge.

So, anyone want to be in my book? Have you always wanted to be a President or a Princess? Give me a real name (or pseudonym, I suppose) and you will be a landmark! Wanna be the futuristic scientist who isolated the enzyme that had turned cow's milk deadly to humans? Want to be one of the diseases that started killing people off after the holocaust? The person who cured one? Prime Minister? The first female Pope? The historic mayor of Helena, Montana, who turned that bustling metropolis into the new US Capital after DC was obliterated?

Give it to me, and you shall live forever.

Mwaa ha ha ha ha!

Oooh, I love an apocalyptic story! (Who'd have thunk?) You can either call me by my real name Alice Jackson, or Bunnie. ;)

loke skywalker, an anarchist rebel, worked with autonomous groups defeating patriarchy and oppression, building resistance, constantly forging bonds across the globe, helping people rebuild community and tribe in the wake of the destruction.

jiana banana peas, took her permaculture and myco-remediation training into the new forming communities, and taught them how to feed themselves and live harmoniously with the land and all its people. many of the gardens that now exist in the ruins of the cities were started by her.

that's how my story would go, anyway. :)

Very cool! (What's myco-remediation?)

My story's actually taking place in a rebuilt, somewhat utopian ship. (Well, so far...) We have more true greenspace than Earth!

We just don't have plot. Perhaps I should hurry up and throw in some oppression. I'm leaving the patriarchy out, though. The Ultimate Law of the ship is female. :D

Banana peas...mmmm. There's some homemade baby food that my next child will surely thank you for.

I did post about it, but that's all good. I've added you now, and thanks for coming aboard! I haven't posted any excerpts this year, mostly just discussing the process.

I'll be happy to use you or both! Is there any particular way you'd like to be immortalized, or is that up to my evil discretion?
Nov. 16th, 2008 06:03 pm (UTC)
Just wanted to let you know that Allison Cruz is our high school teacher and Sophia Olivia is the primary school teacher. :)

Last names work better for naming items, but I can make you an actual character if you prefer. Have any preferences?

Actually, there has already been a female pope. SHe is called "Pope Joan", and wanted to be a cleric so she entered a monastery diguosed as a man, which was not hard to do in the religious garb of the 4th century. She was a brilliant theologian and rose rapidly in the hierarchy of the church. Unfortunately, she was pregnant and went into labor during the coronation ritual and so was "found out". That is also the origin of the "pope's chair" that prospective pontiffs would sit on so that an investigator could ascertain that the candidate in indeed of the male sex.

And that's the truth.

In labor at the coronation? That's crazy. I'm going to have to learn about her. Thanks!
Nov. 6th, 2008 12:23 am (UTC)

Nov. 6th, 2008 12:37 am (UTC)
OK! Anything in particular you'd prefer?

Thea Faye. I'm all intrigued about your story now and I am (cautiously :oP ) happy for you to use the name in whatever manner feels most appropriate.
Nov. 6th, 2008 11:30 am (UTC)
I'm glad you're intrigued! Thanks for sharing your very cool name. No need to be all that cautious, as I doubt I'll knock out something worth publishing my very first time. LOL My real goal is to find a salable short story or two within there, so I guess there's a teeny tiny chance... :)
Nov. 12th, 2008 01:20 am (UTC)
YOu can use my middle name - Louellen. ^_^ If that helps
Nov. 12th, 2008 01:29 am (UTC)
Thank you! It will indeed.
