I don't own the small strip that joins my two pieces, but it's not seperately for sale either so I'm the only one who can expand into it. I've marked it off bounds 'till I get enough points to afford it. It's easier to do it this way than to draw two seperate images.
It's been awhile since we wrote each other. In the meantime quite a bit of activity has taken place. First, I finally got that zero-entropy generator/battery combo device working. What a pain. Not having hands didn't help much. I put it in it's own bunker just in case, but so far it's been powering everything just fine.
The radiation at the lake has spread, and it's forming a cloud system. One of those birds I photographed? It has been flying circles in that cloud for weeks now. When it finally comes out, I'll either have to shoot it or befriend it.
My mutation work is going well though - I planted a garden of creepers near the lake, and they're starting to bloom. Purple flowers wasn't what I expected, but I can't complain, and it did give me a place for all the dirt from my excavation for the battery.
Grass is really growing quickly over the dirt I laid down last time, and to increase the depth of the lake, I added some more dirt to the far embankment. I may keep raising the lake level in the hopes of stopping the smog. It'll make the bird split and give me more delicious photons.
Oh, that's me in the picture - floating over my new parcel of land! It came up for auction and I beat those damn eco-freaks by one point! I'm so elated. I'm offering the tree for sale, but if it doesn't get any takers... well, you see the fuse burning in the photo right? I need to open up this new space, so to speak.
Until we speak again,

Denial is not falsification. You can't avoid a fact just because you don't like it.
