I submitted two. First, there was my flight to the Christmas party and encounter with campers:

Then there is Poinen Must Burn RvB event from january, written from the point of view of salvager:

Either I am terrible at using search feature or there is no other story mentioning that battle, which is a shame.

I certainly upvoted yours. I find it the best I have read so far, not only in terms of how it shows shady side of EVE, but also how it can be turned into a captivating story.

I read the title as "My True Stories of Submission" and expected a very different thread.

Here is my story as well, the first part of three.

https://truestories.eveonline.com/ideas/927-the-first-mothership-to-be-shot-in-lowsecurity-spacethe-false-invulnerability-of-pirate-motherships-part-1

It is about the first ever mothership (supper carrier) kill in low-sec, and how it was planned, trained for and executed.

The links to part 2 and 3 is in the discussion to the story.

EDIT: Rounds of ups passed around as well :)

Here is my story about the origins of CVA and its connection to Providence.

operation-deliverance-how-capsuleers-conquered-providence-for-the-amarr-empire

As this story began in 2003 and continues today it does skirt across a lot of events and does not do the history full justice, nor even the many other alliances, corporations and individuals who have been part of that history. However it does provide a good starting point for those interested in Providence

If you ever wondered why Providence is NRDS or why CVA cares about 'worthless space' then this might provide the answers you seek.

For those who want more Providence stories it is worth checking out the 'Tags' option. Providence is currently tagged in 41 stories and many of those relate (positively & negatively) to the history of the CVA and the uniqueness of the Providence region.

Thanks
