The only two exceptions I can think of are the Kohr-Ah quote in my sig (or location?), and the VUX dialog from P6014, which I wrote with role reversal in mind.
Well, in this fic that's handled by having various characters say in-game text that was originally all Hayes's, or have them say things from the supplemental materials (the manual, right?).

Yes, that is exactly what I'm trying to do. And I try to make it feel as natural as possible.

The dialog often needs some tweaking to fit in this format.

And yes, more is coming. Currently chapter 9 is in progress and my plan is to 'publish' the next part after chapter 10.

And finally, about the legal stuff: Currently I don't bother myself with that. If this story gets finished some day, then I start worrying about that.

Ok, and that's good to hear! I'm looking forward to more of this fic :D

I got to the end of this (part I) and my thoughts are that the attention to detail is impressive, the canonical conversations are skilfully woven in and hopefully I'll get on to part II later!

Hey, just thought I'd let you know of a good place to attract new readers from if anyone wants to post a review of this...

I'd be happy if someone wrote a review there. Thanks for the info.
