Ok, just because no one has done this one yet: JC/Qyzen with minor spoiler for the companion quest
Magdalane walked into the engine room of her ship, weary from a day of trying to negotiate a peace between two insignificant planets she had no true interest in. When she'd arrived on board with Lt. Iresso, she was notified by C2 that Qyzen had requested a word with her. So he's returned, she thought.
"Greetings, my friend. I trust your hunt went well?" she asked him.
He growled, "Herald bring great fortune to all who know her, and this fine pelt is result. Would like to request materials to cure it, as gift for you and your mate."
Magdalane thought they'd been discrete, but evidently not as much as she'd figured. Then again, as the crewmember who'd been with her the longest, perhaps he was just more perceptive.
"That is most kind, Qyzen," she answered. "Thank you for thinking of us."
Qyzen just stared at her for a long minute. "Human is lucky that Scorekeeper pick him for Herald. Any man be lucky." He stared at his feet, "Mate is good thing, Herald, good thing."
"Then why do you seem sad, Qyzen?"
He sighed, as much as a Transdoshan could. "Herald is prize, hate to lose Herald." He hugged her to him, crushing her, then abruptly let her go. "Herald is friend, asking Scorekeeper for her as mate is too much."
She didn't know how to answer that, had no idea that he'd ever thought about that. He turned away, and she started to leave him to his thoughts, but his growl stopped her. "Qyzen be watching him. Scorekeeper choose him, but if he is not good for Herald, he will count for points too."
She smiled as she went up the stairs.
Love is the strongest magic of them all.
