Thankee! Those ladies work hard...they have to play hard sometimes, too. Nyr had a hell of a time getting away from the men (and homicidal AIs) long enough for a "girls' night out".

Well, instead of an elaborate thing or a pair of faux-sunglasses, I envisioned just a shimmery piece of fabric, just wide enough and opaque enough to do the job, but dainty enough to look entirely feminine, especially when tied around the back of the head with a bow.

And her reasons for wearing makeup are entirely valid to her, and the style works too. After all, with her usual mask, she does look like she's wearing stylishly brief sunglasses.

Thankee! That's what I aim for, first and foremost: am I capturing the character? Good to know they're at least recognizable.

marissalf, that was utterly wonderful. I love Vector's voice. In your story, I mean. That sly humor and then the awesome support and everything.

Yoshi, you have to admit, he did kind of deserve that.

Bright - Wynston with 18 hours and nothing to do? I'd be worried, but he's probably trying to figure out the hyperspace routes of Watcher Two's curves. Also, Nalenne's shoes, I was reminded of these at the end.

Irish - Really like your Rylee, confident, a bit mischievous, not afraid to speak her mind and very caring. And, bless, the little story! Those two do seem to be rather infatuated

Marissalf - Kinka does seem to have had some long, great suffering in her past. It's nice that she and Vector can have some happiness <3

Thank you! The agent has a lot of demons in her past, and Vector’s such a calming influence for her. I hate to think how she’d react if something happened to him. (Though that might make a good What If? some time.)

The poor girl needed something nice in her life. She does have some darkness there, which I will totally get to writing...eventually.


Yoshi, That’s gotta hurt, Dankin getting busted for speeding, considering all the other nefarious things smugglers get involved in. And it’s no surprise Corso would be in heaven in a place like that.

Bright, Love the banter between Wynston and Watcher Two. I get the impression he’d be able to wear her down eventually if he really wanted to.

Irishfino, I loved this! It was nice to see Rylee’s evolving impression of Geltie, from skepticism to infatuation to this point where she’s got faith in him that comes from genuine affection rather than because she’s part of his cult. The whole thing was just so lovely and romantic.

Headcanon accepted!

In my headcanon he never does. The over-the-top advances and cold responses started when she was just another beautiful but racist supervisor with an incurable superiority complex who deserved to be nudged out of her royal comfort zone and he was just an uppity unwashed alien who needed to be put in his place; as mutual respect was earned the verbal dynamic just never changed and it was understood that the physical dynamic would never change, either. (She does, for all that she respects and eventually likes him, find him thoroughly physically unattractive.) It’s the most platonic sexual harassment situation Wynston’s ever gotten himself into, and oddly enough, he likes it.


Now, Transportation: Tauntaun Roundup. Assorted characters react to some point on Hoth where they’re obliged to use tauntaun mounts.
