Prompt: Night of the Living Prompt!: First Impressions
Characters: Ald; Quinn
Quinn on Ald
When Baras had first informed him of a new apprentice coming to further the Darth’s plans on Balmorra, he was less than excited. So much so, he considered the task nothing, but another baby sitting job. When Quinn met Ald he was surprised for a number of reasons. One being that he was, in fact, not Vemrin, Baras’ prized apprentice and two being that this apprentice was aloof and seemingly uncaring. And his choice of partner was downright insane. Nevertheless, Quinn sent them on their way and watched with amazement as the apprentice jumped through hoops set aflame and down a cliff without regard for the danger. Not literally, of course, that would be a rather weird mission for Baras to request, but the point remained: this apprentice was different. Baras dropped the news of his new assignment before the apprentice made it to the Arms Factory. He immediately started calculating the apprentice’s strengths and weaknesses. It was, no doubt, the reason behind Baras’ choice. He would finally be free of this hellhole and all it took was this odd apprentice. How fortuitous.
Ald on Quinn
When Ald first met the officer who would provide mission briefings, the man was nearly frothing at the mouth as he berated some poor underling. Frustration, anger, bitterness. All emotions drifting from the man, but his face was impassive. At least it was after he was finally done screaming at that poor bastard.
Prim, proper, respectful, boring. Ald was very nearly bored to tears by the man. He had shown some promise with the yelling and the shouting and the emotion, but now he was all business and business was boring. Kill this. Blow up that. Stab that guy. Boring, boring, boring.
He was rather delighted when the officer showed up to gloat in front of the Jedi. His ability to revel in her defeat was enjoyable and showed the man had far more depth to him than he put on. He was interesting, but he was gone now. Then, to Ald’s never ending happiness, he found the officer checking out the ship as if he was waiting for him. And he was. He prostrated himself in front of Ald, pledged his loyalty, then grabbed his ever so convenient luggage and boarded the ship. A man who owed his career to Baras suddenly being promoted and “choosing” Ald as his assignment? It was a good thing Ald wanted to peel away the layers surrounding the cold appearance of the now-Captain. He was no fool, Quinn was a plant.
At least he was cute.
Guuh, I'm so bad, I haven't replied to any replies lately. I'll do those tomorrow. In the mean time, here's some Ald/Quinn studying the other.
I'll probably die if you group with me, but I'll go out with both lightsabers drawn stabbing someone in the face. Probably you, but it's cool. Forever Shenanigans!!
