It looks like the end of the incoming chapter of my fiction fits quite well.... POV is Arcann but the story is Nyx's.

Spoiler


Edit: Reworked it a bit...
The Leviathan - Nyx-Nocturna, Ihrae, Del'Ihrae, Shanti-Adamanta, Ainlanna

A little delayed, but you get what you pay for, ha! Actually, it took some extra time to figure out how to formulate this.

@Frauzet

As always I enjoyed seeing Thorns and Ciner in action. I like that you always have something that most people wouldn't think of, like what side to stand on to avoid getting decapitated by a Sith lord when you're following him. I'm glad Thorns asked 'why' In a way, it'll be sad if they part company, they make a good team. I look forward to seeing what will happen with Baras.

Hi, all. Just dipping my toe into the water here. I intended to cover more of what happened "Then" in the piece below, but it ended up as mere allusion to Then. Sorry this seems longer than many pieces; I have this grand epic about the whole family and various associates, and I write bits and pieces in fits and starts. I started reading Lord_Thorne's recent posts, and decided to turn my hand to it as well.

Whirlwind round of comments!

@drug_cartel Ahh, Pansey's problem-solving with the novel Willsaam solution - I love it.

@frauzet Thorns sass. I love that he's alert, he has a full appreciation of the gravity of his situation, and he still wonders about sugared nerfs.

@Iheaca "Getting closer to a former enemy bore unpleasant consequences, it was making everything more personal, too personal perhaps." *winces* Yeah...he had to ask, but man is it an unpleasant question.

@Lord_Thorne !! Photin!! I liked the almost tunnel vision of this sequence - very few elements outside the awareness of body and body.

@Lady_Thorne Quite the breakdown! I like (in a "what a shame" way) the...distinction...of being a Cathar singleton. A piece of worldbuilding beyond what the game handed us.

Hiho,

just a short break from gardening to copy the new prompt from Tumblr.
It's great to see so many people share their stories here again. <3 to all of you.
Thank you to Luna and bright for your kind comments. <3


Week of July 20, 2018

Once in a Lifetime: Some things only come around once. A show, a natural phenomena, an opportunity. Grab it, enjoy it, experience it while it’s here or available, because your character won’t ever have another chance. What is a once-in-a-lifetime event for your character? Are they able to take advantage of, appreciate, or participate in it? What happens afterwards?

This week’s prompt not for you? Look for something more to your taste in the Prompt Archive. Consider all the prompts active and waiting to inspire you.

This week’s featured previous prompts are:

First Impressions - Our characters meet tons of people on their journeys. What are their first impressions of each other like? Are they accurate, or did someone put up a front? Write about it!

Failure - Our characters have flaws. They have bad days. They do it wrong. And sometimes they don’t win. What failures have your characters experienced? What, if anything, did they learn from it?

"The Pink Apprentice" -- I really enjoyed this, but that may have been the best. Even better than Pink Lord.

Light side, I take it? Or more halfway?

I keep LS/DS turned off while I play so that it never shapes my decisions, but at the completion of Knights of the Feet, Pansey ended at LS2. She did make plenty of Dark decisions along the way as well, like killing Tremmel and backing Baras, because Tremmel was a racist and Baras accepted aliens into the Empire, or killing Quinn after his second attempt on her life.

If you ever see me in game, I'll probably be running around with the "Apprentice" Pansey title, because I love that whole "Pink Apprentice" schtick. Many top members of her Alliance have started wearing pink as well, forming a sort of "Pink Counsel" on Oddessan.

Prompt: Once in a Lifetime
Some things that happen just once in a lifetime aren't things you want to happen even once.
