Oh dear. This is hilarious. Make me want to write up the strip-pazaak game I figure Vette runs weekly on my ship while my SW isn't there.

I have a submission for "First Impressions" to post this afternoon. It's the first meeting of my BH and my friend's agent, so I want him to preview it before making it public.

Aww, thanks for the compliments, everyone! I'm glad it turned out ok. I agree with you, Bright; Risha is...odd. Ayang is pretty laid-back when it comes down to it and that's why she ends up going along with Risha. In the end I "get" why they're friends. And Morgani, I totally thought about having Corso show up and be all sad for missing the girlfight, but I kinda liked just focusing on the two girls. fwiw I figure he said something about it later and they both chewed him out for it. I think they initally bonded by picking on him, both for being the only guy on the ship and for being younger than both of them.

Kabeone, I barely play my SW since moving servers, but poor Quinn! I'd love to see that actually happen to him, he really needs to loosen up.

I hope everyone is staying safe from the heat though. Our heat index here is supposed to get to 110 today, yikes!! The real Elliot has been lying on the floor looking all pitiful all week, but he also does that when he's jealous, when he wants attention, etc. He's weird.

It's Friday, new prompt time!! But you can still post other stuff if you have it for the health/first impressions. I might post health later; I have a lot of ideas.

7/6/12 - Communication Breakdown - Trying to communicate with each other when things are going well is hard enough, but our characters have plenty of other things that can get in the way. Bad com channels, language barriers, broken holo feeds - all those can mess up a conversation. Not to mention people who just plain don't understand each other...

For the prompt “First Impressions”

Title: An Alliance of Convenience

Characters: Rixik, male Twi’lek mercenary, Korjonos, male Chiss sniper

Spoilers for both IA and BH Hutta class stories. If you made it past level 5 on those classes you’re fine.

This is the same pair from "Recreational Pharma", though those events are later. My bounty hunter is Rixik, the agent here belongs to my friend. We play together all the time, so I imagined this is how these two characters met. I had the idea knocking around for a while; took the prompt to get me to write it out. Language does play a role, and I suppose I could have submitted it for "Communication Breakdown" instead, but I think it fits the other prompt better.

Did run a bit long for this thread, 2000+ words.

You know who is optimally fitted for this week’s prompt? Agents! So naturally I made mine about my Warrior. And Agent.

Communication Breakdown – Said and Unsaid. A stressful trio of interactions for Ruth Niral. They are connected only by the fact that they coincided on the (not-fully-canon) story timeline and made Ruth wish that words could do more in the way of actually communicating stuff.

Sith Warrior Ruth and Imperial Agent Wynston. Spoilers for Imperial Agent Act 2 through Quesh and Sith Warrior’s Quinn romance (more or less) to the beginning of Act 3. 1300 words.

I am really liking these two. I like the worldbuilding details you put in - the drugs from a previous prompt, the accent ID and weaponry details here.
