Czerka's covert weapons division really wishes those two had confined themselves to grunting and other, um, interpretive dance. Alas, the actual corporate espionage happened, and Czerka will suffer, and the fangirls down in Imperial Division will not be finding hot surveillance footage from the scene (though you can bet that Temple dispatched somebody to slice Czerka's cameras just in case.)

History

You know what it's time for? A roundup of the highlights and characteristic interactions of these two across the twenty years of their acquaintance, or, The Long and Winding Road to Slash! The leadup actually isn't slashy at all. Nor even very humorous. But here it is.


A few of these have only previously been published in the PDF edition of Ruth Means Compassion; I'll copy/paste here.


1. Quinn and Wynston meet (see below)
2. Wynston ruins everything (according to Quinn) on Alderaan (also in the PDF as Allies on Alderaan)
3. Quinn and Wynston don't discuss job stress on Voss (PDF chapter Visions on Voss and The Voice on Voss)
4. Wynston sees Quinn in the field years later (PDF chapter Time does not bring relief)
5. Wynston does some real lecturing in Quinn's direction (also in the PDF as I'm not done lecturing you)
6. Ruth brings Quinn into Wynston's quest (PDF chapter Reintroduction)
7. Wynston, Quinn, and Ruth in the field (see below)
8. Multi-part planning in endgame has some noninteractive parts before the moment that commands a détente (PDF chapters Huddle and Protection, 1-4)
oh crap Quinn was actually taking this stuff seriously and, and he finally lost like Wynston always wanted him to but it kind of sucked, and in the end Ruth wanted him to be okay but he gave everything for the mission and now he's alone and miserable!
9. Wynston offers Quinn a job (PDF chapter Scattering)
10. (hopping to this thread) Quinn, to his own surprise, takes the job



1 – Quinn and Wynston meet – published in the PDF as A Chiss, a Rattataki, a Twi'lek and a Sith walk into a cantina. Ruth only knows Wynston from a one-night stand on Dromund Kaas at this point.

Spoiler





7 – Wynston, Quinn, and Ruth in the field – PDF chapter Love believes all things

Still... this still hits me right in the chest.

I swear PJ channels me on the Quinn/Wyn front.

Go PJ!!
I'll probably die if you group with me, but I'll go out with both lightsabers drawn stabbing someone in the face. Probably you, but it's cool. Forever Shenanigans!!

*brushes dust off the thread* Whew, been a while! I have three more crossposts from the SFC thread, then a very short original piece to remind me what these boys aren't doing when they're not avoiding having sex. Wait, that came out wrong...

You made me a happy little person. Especially this part was my favorite:

Quote:

"You would think so. One polynomial's much like another to you, isn't it?"

"There's one to fit every curve; what's not to love?"

"You wh0re."

I'm all on Wynstons side. I mean, Stone-Weierstrass says it all.

And Holiday and Quinn... a perfect match. (Though I guess, I only repeat what other people already said. I should start checking the SFC thread.)

It's good they found a something, they can't do without each other. They are just much more fun, when they have to work together.
