You ever notice that in the longer stories the Quinn that is currently doing the best is the one who died?

Oh, and hey glad you liked this one. I had a friend whose family spoke mostly Farsi at home. Hearing her half of telephone conversations was bizarre. Part English, part Farsi, no pauses at transitions, just rolling right along.

This is an extra part of my JK story. Remi is recovering from something that made her crazy. She gets a visit from a few friends from her past. Spoilers for JK story line Quesh and Tython.

I like it. I like it lots.

I hope Quinn swims in guilt and regret until his fingers get all pruney, to paraphrase a fun quote.
Wynston's thing with Quinn gets bitterly delicious after endgame. (SW spoilers here)

That was good for a malicious laugh.

I mean, in storylines where I get to murder him outright (hi, Nalenne), I can feel reasonably favorably inclined toward the man afterward. We had our thing, I registered my opinion, I worked out my frustrations, all's well. When I'm denied that chance to vent (hi, Ruth), I am not nice to him.

Catching Up, even more. Because a man like Wynston has many, many people in his past. Imperial Agent, 800 words, no spoilers.

The more I think about it, the more interested I get in exploring the two major elements here. Which are 1) the unreliable narrator, as I have to think through Quinn's intentions, lay out his actions, and then describe 'em from the perspective of a person who knows what he is capable of and is 100% determined to think the worst of him; and 2) family dynamics when the child of acrimoniously divorced parents can easily kill one of said parents with his brain. Also 2a) Ha ha, the powerful Force-sensitive Imperial of yours has hit puberty, good luck with that. Makes me want to call up my parents and tell 'em they got off easy with me, back in the day.

Catching Up:
In which Broan meets up with Master Ashari after a rather long time apart.

Spoiler


It's strange, sometimes the action comes first and sometimes it's the dialogue. In this case it was most definitely the dialogue that came first.
