@DarthSillyMonkey: YAY!!! A really fantastic ending full of sucker punches, laughs, tears, and kisses!!! *sigh* I'm glad you took Adwynyth's idea and had Gault be a hero....well, a hero for Gault anyways.

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it! Kat and Mako are going to have a few girly moments.....she may be a BH, but she is all girl! Hehe, that ship never seems to get any cleaner does it?! I kinda feel bad for 2V having to deal with that. As for the future, I will probably work with the crossovers down the road since I prefer to have the classes interweave in my stories, but I at least wanted to get the groundwork in there with this one.

Thanks! I'm really glad people are enjoying Kat. I like to work with the class stories and have them interweave. Someday I may just focus on just one class, but its just too much fun to have interweaving!

Thanks and I'm glad you like Kat. I've been hesitant to write much about her since its been a while since I've played the class. Her and Mako definitely have some bonding points and have developed a nice friendship.

As for shenanigans, oh, there will be more.....there will be much more. I'll probably post some Bella and Mallay shenanigans here soon, I just want to finish up the next installment on my thread first. I'm sure there will be some Kat shenanigans as well, but I should really play her in game for a bit first.

That poor thing is going to run itself ragged trying to clean that mess up!!! I remember first getting the ship and the droid saying something about regular bathing, then I recalled Mako's comment when they first arrive on Dormund Kaas about the spaceport smelling like spacers that haven't bathed in a month...or something like that and it made me think, Do they not teach about personal hygiene in the SWTOR galaxy?!

Imperius grinned, tight-lipped. "You know me. Careful is my middle name. Or was, before the first time I got sold. It may have been changed some since then." The sage green he affected in his eyes by some trick slipped and swam through muddy color to a feral orange. "Bye."
Oh, the tension and anticipation is delicious! I loved that ending!

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it, but I understand about Mako. One of the reasons I've been hesitant to write about Kat was that it had been so long since I've played the BH class and my feel for the companions isn't what it should be. I guess you could chalk it up to the girls sharing similar backgrounds and having a bond as a result that makes them a little softer, more caring/affectionate towards one another, but yeah, I get what you mean.....I didn't mean for her to come across as naive though, so I will have to watch out for that in future writings. I probably won't write more on Kat until I get some time to play her a little more in game to get the feel for her companions a little better.

Oh, and poor Ayrs, he just really has some emotional demons to get through doesn't he?! I'm glad he has Elara to help him through the rough memories now. Also, the Olympia piece.....HAHAHA!!! Ole Doc is really gonna get it now!!

I feel lame for posting only a single comment but clarifying through a PM is hard since the system on here sucks

I was talking about Mako in-game, not in your story I like her personality/character, but I'm not sure I completely bought her being a part of the bounty hunting lifestyle, particularly a dark side/less pleasant BH; she seemed almost like she was deluding herself about what being a BH was ("Oh we'll just hunt down bad guys and be mean to them but not to people I don't want to be mean to). I don't know...I never really latched onto the BH storyline in general (which is part of why Amurri remains a background character).

I still liked her a lot as my hunter's sidekick, though.

Actually, so I feel less awkward I'll add a Wishes story.

Character: Mina (IA)
Notes: Set on Hoth, no game spoilers

Mwahaha, my perpetual Warrior machine continues to propagate! In game Mellekor and Nalenne both have Vette's collar on, which is awful and which cuts off most of the conversation line, but which is solidly in character for both. I haven't yet finished DS Jaesa's conversations because she's crazy and obnoxious, but I try to get the gist of her.

@Lesaberisa, the two Ayrs pieces are wonderful, especially the last two lines of each. And Operation: Malpractice continues apace, I see As for Mako, I agree, she's bizarrely soft-hearted to be choosing a line of work that consists solely of kidnapping and murdering people for money. Maybe she'll make more sense as I keep playing, but from where I sit she's really an odd one out.

Now, Communication Breakdown for Ananz, following on the previous two Ilum pieces. 400 words, spoilers for the Ilum planetary questline.
