Okay, let's try this whole "interacting with the forum" thing again. A Sindri-kid sampler this week, all spoiler-free.

Disarmed (Zhara Sindri, tools of the trade)
Spoiler


Solstice (Alendar Sindri, seasons)

Negotiating Passage (Maneera Sindri, tools of the trade. Long piece is long.)

LogicLoup - Maneera's got some experience under her belt, poor girl :/ Her disbelief came across as being a case of "nice guys aren't" - not that that's necessarily a bad position to have, really.

Nice trio of stories there, LogicLoup. Maneera hurts my heart a bit. Hope things are looking up for her!
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Week of 11/15/12
Deadly Sins - Everyone struggles with one of them at some point: wrath, pride, envy, lust, gluttony, greed, and sloth. Sometimes they spur us on to do good things. Other times, they hurt us and others. Write about your characters' struggles with the worst sins of them all.
Seven Virtues - We're not just sinners, here. We all have our virtuous sides too, and many of our characters take one or more of the traditional "seven virtues" to heart: wisdom, justice, restraint, courage, faith, hope, and charity. Write about a time in which your characters embraced one or more of these virtues and how it affected them.

It's not the years, as the saying goes, it's the mileage. Maneera isn't exactly older than her years, but she's far more cynical than a 23-year-old should be. "Nice guys aren't" is certainly a key piece of her outlook on life, and yes, the driving force behind her assumptions about Conor. While that kind of outlook provides useful insulation for someone in her position, it's also a major stumbling-block to getting out of that position.

A Gram is Better was pretty solidly the bottom of Maneera's character arc; this is where she begins to heal and rebuild. The road back isn't easy, by any means, but the light ahead isn't an oncoming train

How about Deadly Sins: Wrath done Ruth-less style, the timeline that has progressed to ~18 years post-class-line. Quinn and Wynston are in the galaxy-fixing business together, even if they still don't like each other. Pierce, Junior (no first name) is an apprentice in their operation. This particular story features Wynston and Junior. Spoilers for the end state of Ruth means Compassion; game spoilers for a technology from the Agent Act 1. And, wow, I wrote this whole thing thinking of Wrath as the agent's anger instead of Wrath as Emperor's Wrath. Err, anyway, here goes...
