SettingEdit

  • Set on Surebleak in early autumn "which meant that winter was coming"
    • some short time later -- "a blinding blizzard sheeting the window"


CharactersEdit

Out TakesEdit

  • In the Afterward of “Change Management” the authors state that they removed three scenes from “Neogenesis” that “didn’t exactly fit and thus they became outtakes.”
  • They put the three outtakes into Street Cred: Val Con’s attack, the first letter from Lady yo’Lanna, Miri and Val Con’s argument.

From the Afterward:

"Some scenes were removed from the final novel, Neogenesis….we decided to — take those three outtakes and weave them into a story, dammit. So, that’s what we did. Nothing in this story spoils Neogenesis, by the way, though you’ll find some echoes of the story and vice-versa.

  • In this reader's humble view, Street Cred embellishes Neogenesis, despite some oh-so-slight discrepancies.

TimelineEdit

  • Set in autumn. Dovetails with beginning of Neogenesis.
  • Plot follows up on some "Dragon in Exile" (DiE) events:
    • Val Con is considering making an alliance with the Juntavas, which was offered to him in DiE.
    • Corner qe’andra apprentices are training, which Miri suggested in DiE.
  • Street Cred occurs after Code of Honor because Tommy Lee.


ExcerptsEdit

The Road Boss wasn't exactly doing a lot of business that morning. Miri twice caught herself nodding off. "I'm up for a walk," she said. "Clear the cobwebs out."

Her aide considered her. "A run around the port with a full battle pack?" he suggested.

The report from the Qe'andra Recruitment Committee, aka the Storefront Qe'andra Project, was encouraging, if you liked your encouragement laced with sheer terror."

__________

"Call McFarland, and the Watch. Val Con's down, but he's still fighting."

___________

"Ah, Lady yo'Lanna. She plans a visit. In fact, she expects to be with us within the season, as she has commissioned a Scout at leave to bring her to us."
