Not yet, as it's only First Impressions and now Uninvited Guest. When I actually get something resembling a beginning done, I'll make a thread for it and then everything will be together! Yay!

And Kabeone, I wanted Broan to be having dark moments of temptation but not be acting on them. Like I said before, I don't want him to turn into DS!Jaesa all of a sudden

Oh, Vette. Every now and then some writer makes me love you.

Jaesa sounds about as good at dancing as I am. Except I actually want to learn. I sympathize with your discomfort, Jaesa!

The story index by character is here. The links are in order of posting, not in-continuity chronological order, but it's got things sorted by author and sub-sorted by character.

Ah, thanks. You mentioned it was part of a larger work (in-progress) so I just assumed there were more snippets around in this thread. Aside from First Impressions. Thanks for the clarification. I enjoy Rochester and Broan was was just trying to fit this in with what I'd already read.

@ Bright: Thank you so much for the portrait help! I don't mess around with the photoediting software at all, so I didn't even know where to start.

And poor Jaesa. For me it's music: I love music. All kinds, baroque to rock (with a few exceptions). I can play violin (or used to), guitar (moderately well), and recorder (badly). Even took Choir back in school. But I'm technical. I can reproduce music as written or performed by another, with much practice, but I just don't feel it. Not the way a real musician does.

And I'm a terrible dancer.

Eeep, I've never had a character with The Ponytail. (Doesn't help that three of mine are Twi'leks, one is a Rattataki, and two of the other four are Zabrak.) I might need to change Lucerna's or Ashle's hairstyles to insure greater happy fun time writing success.

Tatile, this progression of Broan's defection is excellent. It's believable, which is interesting considering we're talking about a mainly lightside Jedi going Sith. Good work!

Lol, all I can picture is Nalenne going "Last names? We don't need no stinking last names!"

Striges, Varrel's stories always have this clarity and poetry, and I'm astounded by the amount of background detail you have. It's very impressive.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Time for new prompts, which I will preface with ~tales from my personal life~.

So today I got my first organic chemistry test back. And I did really really badly. Like, failed badly. And I looked at it and felt bad about myself and felt horrible about my future and finally I said, "Screw it, I am so done with this. I'm going to graduate school." I felt so relieved in that moment, that even though I was giving up on becoming a doctor it simply was not worth the stress and the emotional toll it was having on me anymore.

So your prompt this week is Changes or New Paths because despite the relief, this still does feel kinda crappy. It's something I really wanted and having to end it really does suck. But in the long run I think I will be happier. So write about that sort of thing this week.

ElliotCat, think of it this way: at least you got a shot at it. You tried and that's a lot more than most people get
