Has a dissection of the Gap ever been done/attempted here at the watch?

I know we're in the middle of an FR dissect right now, and my contribution will be coming up next week. I had so much fun working on it I really want to do the same for the Gap.

we slammed through TRS just before FR came out. we figured once FR dissection is over we'd do the rest of The Gap.
i think thats what we figured anyway.

Damn, I dunno...I'm lazy and busy and tired. Laughing

I suppose if enough people get involved, I'd do a chapter. But involvement is gonna be the problem.

(Edit: I can't believe its been 5 years since we dissected TRS. I remember doing it so clearly...)

Since it's me, I'm not going to nicely ask for involvement - I'll cut to threats.

The less people take part in the dissections, the more likely you'll never hear the end of their boasting - mine in particular.

Also, I call dibs on the second Angus chapter. I may call back in some special case, but I'll recommend not to be too hopeful.

Agreed.

According to SRD's latest, his editors seem to think the The War Within is going to be his best work ever. Since many of us feel the Gap is currently his masterpiece, ought we not do justice to a deep dive into these books, as has been done for the three TCTC series and for Mordant? We can't complete that project before the next Great God's War volume, but we can at least make a start.

I'm certainly willing to do several chapter dissections. If we really can find enough people who want to do this, then we can contact lucimay about it. I propose that we can use the already-posted dissections by Effaeldm and Lord Foul as a launching point. What do my fellow Gap fans think of that idea?

Not entirely sure, but if this actually happens, I can try to take a chapter or a few as well.

Welcome back, Effy! You have been missed, having been MIA since 8 Nov 2016.
Why would that date stand out in my mind? Confused
Good to know you're still reading the Watch. Looking forward to continuing to see your posts.

I'm thinking about doing a group re-read, Sky, with chapter dissections of Forbidden Knowledge to be posted in Ancillary Documentation! The first two chapters dissections were done in 2012 by Effy/LF (and she did a great job, too!), so people can post comments on those threads anytime they feel like it. If we're serious and really want to get this going, then I'll need to PM lucimay (moderator of Ancillary Documentation subforum) to make it all official. For now, I propose to post a dissection of the third chapter of FK, entitled "Chapter 2" (I resolve this seeming contradiction by telling myself, "Well, it's the second chapter of Morn's story in FK, but it's still the third chapter of FK") by Saturday, May 17th. I am willing to do up to 50% of the FK chapters, but would like some volunteers to help out with the rest. Here's where we stand right now:

1. Angus [1] (by Lord Foul--already posted)
2. Chapter 1 (by Effaeldm--already posted)
3. Chapter 2 (by Cord Hurn--already posted)
4. Chapter 3 (by Skyweir--already posted)
5. Ancillary Documentation/Datacores (by Cord Hurn--already posted)
6. Chapter 4 (by Cord Hurn--already posted)
7. Chapter 5 (by Cord Hurn--already posted)
8. Chapter 6 (by Cord Hurn--already posted)
9. Ancillary Documentation/Intertech (by Cord Hurn--already posted)
10. Angus [2] (by Lord Foul or Effaeldm--to be posted by July 21)
11. Chapter 7 (by Skyweir--to be posted by August 4)
12. Chapter 8 (by Cord Hurn--to be posted by August 18 )
13. Chapter 9 (to be posted by September 1)
14. Ancillary Documentation/The Amnion [1] (to be posted by September 15)
15. Chapter 10 (to be posted by September 29)
16. Chapter 11 (to be posted by October 13)
17. Chapter 12 (to be posted by October 27)
18. Ancillary Documentation/The Amnion [2] (to be posted by November 10)
19. Chapter 13 (to be posted by November 24)
20. Chapter 14 (to be posted by December 8 )
21. Chapter 15 (to be posted by December 22)
22. Ancillary Documentation/Gap Drive (by Effaeldm--to be posted by January 5, 2019)
23. Angus [3] (by Cord Hurn--to be posted by January 19, 2019)
24. Chapter 16
25. Chapter 17
26. Chapter 18
27. Ancillary Documentation/The Preempt Act
28. Chapter 19
29. Chapter 20
30. Chapter 21
31. Angus [4]


If anybody is interested in doing a/some FK chapter(s), perhaps it's a good idea to indicate preferences here in this topic thread. If this project seems like it's going to take off, I will make sure that lucimay knows about it (edit: lucimay has been sent a PM by me about this project; no reply from her, as yet). Either way, I'm going to post my dissection of FK's third chapter, "Chapter 2", by Saturday, May 17th. It will be interesting to see how many of you would like to join in on this project!!

I'm keen CH - any excuse to re-read again.

I'll probably miss my deadlines a few times but will definitely attempt to post a chapter.
