Good to see you around. I figured we were just hanging out unsupervised in the corner entertaining ourselves

Bright - Vierce!!! And god, Elara is just awesome Gutsy indeed.

Ves - Another SW, and a sweetheart by the looks of it. Poor thing Seriously though, very cute.

Enemies gave me a chance to finish writing a long-abandoned passage. I was going to delay this 'til I had written through Vierce's Alderaan and Balmorra but it just isn't flowing. This comes after the long-ago Worlds Colliding scene on Balmorra. It takes place toward the end of Balmorra, after some fragile friendly functioning but before he really notices her. (It occurs very shortly after the Nar Shaddaa resupply run during which the Cross Faction AU splits off.) No game spoilers. 2100 words.

There's a paragraph of overlapping material (just recapping that he submits some paperwork before bed) between the old scene and this one.

I very much enjoyed both Vierce and Tessa's stories. Vierce's inner battle is wonderfully written. And, Broan's descriptions of seeing sunlight were amazing!

It's so good to be back!

I avoided the ultraviolence and coercion for now. Oh, and BH spoilers. And...that really cuts down on the latest reading material. But, welcome to the thread, meanken!

@EverSteam, on your earlier Leer piece...poor Torian. But I guess if anybody can take a wild wounded creature like that it's him.

@Ves, a fantastic art opportunity for A'tro: bracing against the whole of a Tatooine sandstorm.

@kabe, I sort of wanted to slap Scourge for even starting to talk about Remi. But it all worked out in the end

@Selentar, loved the early imagery of Xareen'alay's call to Xania. I love Xania's dismissive attitude, too: “Well, it had to come from somewhere. Parents, the environment, the suns of Tatooine. It does not matter. All that matters is that I have it...”

ahaha, @Miriah...I shouldn't laugh at you. But, hon, you really need to sleep. (And Mags, I'm delighted to see you back!)

@Tatile, your sunrise short was exquisite. That's entirely too short a descriptor but I think it about sums it up. Loved the colors, Broan's thoughts, all of it. I see I didn't respond to your earlier Turning Point story. This is probably because I was speechless. I'd like to identify what I so much loved about it because specific praise is good, but just...every time you show us the inside of Broan's head the perspective is wonderful, and Talan makes a wonderful foil to Ashari, and the images of that grimy lonely place, and the last line, all just came together perfectly.

@Ves (again), the contrast between Vette's impression and Tessa's had me in stitches. “Uh, did I miss some kind of cause for happiness back there?” Also, IA = instant hook for me, it seems.

@Ms. Woods, the very thought that some actual BW representative reads this tempts me to go back and replace all text with some kind of legal disclaimer/apology for abusing the IP so horribly. But, thanks for the kind words!

As for Vierce!verse, Elara Dorne is the kind to work out what's right and do it. Within established channels if possible. If it isn't she'll find better established channels. She's just absolutely, fearlessly principled. And yes I'm a tremendous Dorne fangirl. Come on, Vierce, catch up with me here.

Another scene I wrote first and prompt-fit after. It's sort of relevant to NotLP: Communication Breakdown. Vierce!verse, no plot spoilers because yay, personal drama can stand independent of plot at times! (Oh, wait, scraps of spoiler for the existence of the Trooper's Balmorra quest and one Republic Balmorra quest.) 600 words.

Awkward Vierce is adorable. Yes, I know he's glaring at me right now, but he is...adorable
