NotLP: Health/Xenobiology
With Mel, Ellis and Kinka
Spoilers: None. About 1500 words, picking up right where the last story left off.
Spoiler

Note
Spoiler

NotLP: A bit of a stretch, but we’ll say Loneliness & Solitude
A short bit for Kinka. Much of it is first person because it’s all in her head, and it seemed to work better that way.
Spoilers: None except for a companion conversation with Vector.

Spoilers for the beginning of both stories.

@DarthSillyMonkey, I love your idea of multiple HAVOC squads!

@alaurin, I am quite enjoying this alternate take on the trooper storyline!

@alaurin, I always found Risha's recruitment jarring to say the least...at least with Valaya she talks a good game and gets a decent dose of mistrust to start with.

@Iryfindel, I was cheering at "I. Got. It." As for him settling for the head-shake as the equivalent of a smile...you're lucky you get acknowledgment at all sometimes, jerk.

@Striges, great marketing copy You have me psyched for Failure.

@Everybody else, seriously, Cleaner One is a great take on the story behind the story. Given Cleaner's methods the subject matter may be considered disturbing, but you get to see all of Striges' rich prose and detailed world setting getting torn up by the whirlwind that is Kaliyo Djannis and Shen.

@alaurin Waiting for a Sign is a real heart-in-the-throat piece. Even before you hit the end

@marissalf, okay, I'm now halfway convinced Ellis isn't just Eckard in disguise...so far so good...not taking my paranoia glasses off.

The sound filled the entire ship, echoed off the walls and rattled the nerves of Mel and the rest of her crew.
I really like that sentence.
Seeing Kinka's perspective, and her recollection of Vector's perspective, puts a real face to the fight to come back.

@AgentJacen, of all the ways for separated family to meet up again...I suppose a lot of young Sith roads lead to Korriban. They'll have a lot to handle together.

Fitness for Wynston sometime during the class line. 600 words, no spoilers. Adult themes, I guess? What am I talking about, it's Wynston in a room with a postpubescent woman, of course there are adult themes.
