Swoon indeed! It's a well known fact that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach; and Ald carrying around his own spices? Now that's a Sith I'd like to meet

Trade recipes, watch cooking shows. Om nom nom.

@Magdalane - Miriah being, and allowing herself to be, absolutely silly in-love with Corso is sweet all by itself, but even more so considering all it took for them to get to that point.

@kabe - The large-scale divergences in Remi's and Scourge's outfitting of their respective safehouses worked well to highlight the points where their plans did mirror each other. And the pairs of cups at the end... beautifully done.

@Tatile - As heartbreaking as it is, it's a talk that needed to be had, I think, and I appreciate that Broan doesn't just take for granted that everything's okay now.

@hoyden - That last line... for someone usually so calculating and self-aware, I can see how the sudden realisation that he's allowed someone else to matter so deeply to him must seem like losing it.

@Eversteam - Welcome aboard! Wow... Quinn is just whole big frustrated bundle of fight-or-flight here.

Favourite line, and so very very true for Quinn.

@Vesaniae - A'tro's stream of consciousness here is fantastic

@Irrissa - Short but very, very poignant.

@irishfino - Aside from the obligatory spit-take — enjoying Ald's meat, indeed! — I love the way so many of your Ald pieces have had these little moments that are light and cute on their own — here, Vette crushing on Ald — that turn around and become heartbreakingly tragic in light of later plot.

I'm going to tentatively place new-prompt day as Friday. OFFICIALLY AND HENCEFORTH FOR ALL...UM...UNTIL SOMEBODY DECIDES OTHERWISE.


Week of 11/30/12
I Love This Bar - We all do our time in the watering holes of the galaxy. What's your character's favorite memory of things seen, heard, done, purchased, insinuated, shot, kissed, imbibed, discombobulated, or otherwise rendered memorable in a cantina?
Night of the Living Prompt - Remember all those ideas or half-finished scraps you had for earlier prompts? You know how it feels way too late to post it now? Resurrect your favorite prompt - let us know which it is! - and give us a story! (Kudos to kabeone for maintaining the master prompt list!)
the Short Fic Weekly Challenge - 70+ authors to date. 1900+ stories. New prompts weekly!

I won't kill you because you swooned. Your swoon saved you. :P

Ald carries a lot of things most Sith wouldn't bother with... the implications are numerous. :3

Thank you! I love sweet and bitter moments and sweet moments that lead to bitterness and bitter moments that lead to sweetness... I like angst, lol.


Thanks for reading!

I may have posted it on a certain deviant site. One for art. That is deviant.

I'm also fairly easy to find.

General question: is it at all possible for a SFWCT newb to ever catch up and be able to comment/praise more than one author at a time? How do y'all do it ('y'all'? meh, forget crying over spilled tea- I need some serious coffee)?
