Okay!

Throwing some comments out there! Back at my house, which usually translates into more writing time. Right now I'm just catching up on the thread. So much great stuff!

Prompt: Missing Something (I'm going to be trying to catch up on prompts)
Title: Thirty Credit Punchbowl
Characters: Angharad Irons, Zeedor
Chronology: Most recent! Just after the ship crashing one!

This is a bit sedate. So be warned. It's all feelings and no punching. Huh.

Spoiler


One reply! Frauzet, I loved the realism in this. It's great to see consequences for actions our characters take. I especially love how you described the wound.

New Friday, new prompt.

Week of August 15, 2014
A Matter of Public Record: Every character is a wealth of information, and it's probably to someone’s advantage to know it. Everything from basic information like name, species, and gender, to more specific things, like school records, close relatives, or their favorite snack food. So what do they know about your character? What's on their public record and is any of it accurate? Has it been changed, erased, or confused with someone else’s? Who might want to know? Why?


And, as ever,

Night of the Living Prompt: Keep on using any prompt you like! Check out the list at http://www.swtor.com/community/showp...=7489974post=2 and http://www.swtor.com/community/showp...=7489991post=3 (we’re up to two full posts!). Many thanks to Alaurin for maintaining the prompt archive and story index here.


This week's featured NotLP:
LF1M - Dating site profiles are full of the good, the bad, and the ugly. If your character got lonely and tired of his/her designated love interest, what profile would you write for them to submit to the HoloNet's matchmaking services?

And a new quiz! I think I will go for a repost rather than for a new story, since I have just finished the chapter that fits really well with the topic. I am clipping the rest of the chapter since it is irrelevant, it’s on ff.net if anyone is curious.

Prompt: A Matter of Public Record
Title: Look Before You Jump
Class/Character: SW, Lord Yvolgar
Spoilers - Warrior's companion Conversations

Comments, firstly:

@Frauzet- I imagine that Mallena is far from the first person to have trouble trusting Dorne, and as perceptive as she seems to be, I don't think it would take her long to deduce what the Lt.'s real issue is. And regarding the armor thing, I like how you summed it up- if you want it to protect you, it has to at least look like it does. All my characters are dressed at least moderately practically for that reason (at least while they're in the field), along with the fact that a lot of the skimpier stuff looks kind of silly IMO.

A bit of housekeeping before I begin. The next story may be a while in coming, as I'm moving this week and I'm not sure how long it will take for things to settle down enough for me to get some writing done. So the gap could be very short or quite long.

I told myself that I would write about someone besides Mallena once I finished Taris, but this worked out perfectly for the prompt and I've been waiting to do this story for a long time. I will warn everyone that I take some (actually a lot) of liberties with the way the end of Trooper Act 1 plays out, since I found it rather underwhelming.

Title: Aftermath of Justice
Prompt: Communications Breakdown, along with some bonus Health, even though you're probably all sick of it by now.
Characters: Mallena Dayne (Trooper), Aric Jorgan, Elara Dorne
Word Count: ~1,300 words
Spoilers: Trooper Act 1
