Photoshop, or its annoying free version, GIMP. I have been using GIMP but I hate it and I miss PS. I use it to post pictures to my tumblr a lot.

Bright, one note on that jacket. It's Republic only. Sad Imperial toons
Earthmama, I just used Paint for my pics.

Ok, I had this story written out and then the computer ate it so I'm going to try again...grrr....

Taking place in the same time frame as First Impressions, this is part of my continued attempt to write an actual story that has the working title of The Taking of The Supreme Deliverance.
Cast: Lt. Windthorpe, Captain Istier, Jedi Broan and some random guy.

Spoiler


Not great, but I haven't really felt very inspired this week. Oh well, character development! Yay!

Oh, endgame clothes.

Also, Broan! You're ruining everything! Silly Jedi.

Finally, and I swear I'm done after this, the facial closeups for Ruth's people (all but one of whom has a last name, now that I lay it out?) and Nalenne's people (none of whom have last names.)

Prompt: …When No One’s Watching

Title: Only Men Dance

Characters: Varrel Umrahiel (Sith Marauder), Jaesa Willsaam, Vette.

Single spoiler for SW story, technically chapter 2, mentioned once in passing.

This particular entry hits the prompt at an oblique angle. It also illustrates Varrel’s relationship with Vette, which I guess is a bit odd since Varrel's not a lightside character. The timeframe would be after the main story concludes.

There were so many great images from this, the description of the dance, Vette as the fool, the clothes, Quin rererecallibrating things and I love that saying though did she/you mean men or man? The meaning is so different but still fitting either way. <3

Excellent top to bottom.

Wonders of double-posting when I finally get caught up here.

Screenshots are awesome! If paint works for this I might give it a shot (I don't have photoshop). For the record, I swear Wynston actually looks exactly like I pictured him.

@Tatile: is there a master list of the stories in this continuity? Aside from spending some quality time with the indices so thoughtfully provided by other readers (thanks Kabeone). I'd love to go back and read them together.

(edit) @ Kabeone: If I remember the context correctly, it was "men" in the larger "mankind" or "humanity" sense. That's certainly how I remembered it, and the sense I wanted to convey.

I loved the comparison of Vette as Fool, Quinn as General etc. Reminded me a very dark tarot deck. I could see the characters Ryder-Waite drawn on a card falling on the table Carnivale intro style. Great imagery you put in my head.

The Index by bright_ephemera is more complete and is linked from that first index. The chronological index hasn't been updated in a while and bright's index goes by character so you can get all the broan/rochester goodness. There's so much goodness there.

@Tatile I think the forum ate my earlier comment on your story... I love this added piece of the puzzle. Especially knowing how at least that part ends. When you make your own thread for this story I will subscribe that thread so hard
