- The Ultimate Story Checklist, v6: Alien
- Straying from the Party Line: Alien (I used to do these all at once)
- Morally Ascending in Alien (This is in reference to a question that’s no longer on the checklist, and I don’t really miss it, but it’s interesting to see what’s gone.)
Are unrealistic genre-specific elements a big metaphor for a more common experience (not how life really is, but how life really feels)?
Yes: the horror of childbirth, the evil of corporations, the dangers of mining, etc.
I do kind of miss that question. Sorry buddy, that’s the price of progress!
