Who's on vacation this week with a whole lot of free time on her hands? This gal! (Which means I should stay all caught up with stories!)
@Gaeriel_Averrod, Welcome to the thread! That was a fantastic intro to your agent. I really enjoyed Zenís insight into what the Empire does to people, and this
She is empty as a dress-form, existing only as the meaty insides for her many identity-skins.
sums up the agent perfectly. Itís no wonder they end up so damaged.
@alaurin, That might just be the very definition of awkward! I feel like Mariís the only one coming out of that situation without a red face.
Yeah, I figure Kinkaís pretty cool about that stuff (unless it involves a certain Lokin). She probably had dozens of people who tried to steer her away from Vector because of his Joiner thing, so she tries to see past all the extraneous stuff like age and species. And even with all Gaultís scheming, she figures heís mostly harmless, especially if he has feelings for Mel.
@Lesaberisa, Despite the carnage, I genuinely felt bad for Malicineve, both for her tough past and her future heartache. I liked getting more of Amurriís backstory there. Very interesting. And a very good use of the canned responses with Arys and Elara.
@Bright, I do love a simple solution now and again. This makes me think of Raiders of the Lost Ark where Indy just pulls out the gun and shoots the sword swinging guy in the street. Sometimes you just need to cut the crap and get things done.
@DSM, The mere thought of Vector at a metal concert makes me giddy. I can absolutely see him trying to figure out the different dynamics and trying to reconcile all the bloodless aggression.
He laughed, "So we -- I've been told, my friend. So I've been told."
Very nice touch to have Vector shift to the "I" after he thinks about wanting to retain his individuality.
And Fennírys, I should have known her fingerprints would be all over what happened.
Edit: Yoshi snuck one in while I was posting! I'm so glad you wrote the wedding! Very nice, lovely ceremony. And then this:
At the back of the room, Kaliyo snickered and elbowed Pierce. "Sounded like he said 'forever hold your pee.'"
Oh my gosh, I laughed so hard at this.
