Okay, here's the next installment of the Switchbladeverse, for the Loneliness prompt. Actually works with the prompt, albeit in a fairly subtle way!
That being said... There's a fair chunk of material between this piece and part three that I've skipped over. I may come back to it if later prompts allow. However, this piece advances the plot and it fits the prompt well enough that I don't want to postpone it. So, this story is going to stop being purely linear. I'll try to be as clear about the timeline as possible.
This piece takes place during chapter two, while en route to Hoth from Quesh, and contains no class story spoilers.
