EDIT: After reading through these stories, I've edited them into a semblance of quality. Pretty much all of the content is unchanged, though I've added a little here and there, to set up the intended atmospheres and make them more believable. I've also split the Vanguard's grave into The Vanguard and Grave of a Jedi, as the tones of the two pieces jarred.

Hey again, thought I had another week before Father's day. As such, I blitzed through most of the former and all of the latter today. Best laid plans, huh. Anyway...

Random Note: For some reason, when I was typing this in Word, it automatically set the proofing language to French, even though I haven’t written anything in French for months. Weird.

Week of June 26, 2015
I Dare You!: Few phrases in the English language have gotten people into more trouble, except possibly “Hey watch this!” So how about your character? Do they feel obliged to accept any dare? Do they dare others? Or do they regard the whole concept as ridiculous, an excuse to overrule common sense in exchange for a fleeting moment of acceptance or popularity? I dare you to write about it.

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 (yes, we’re up to two full posts!). Many thanks to Alaurin for maintaining these lists.

This week's featured NotLP:
Hidden Talents - All of our characters are good fighters, but people are good at more than one thing. What else are they good at - and how do their friends and family react to learning about this hidden skill?

Congratulations/Awards - Sometimes everything goes right, and sometimes our characters are recognized for it. Write about a time your character received an award or congratulations. Do they feel they earned it? Did it make a positive difference for others?

Hi everyone, I have been reading this forum for a while, but i don't know exactly what prompts are up at this point, or which this'd belong to for that matter, but i've got a backstory to my first character in my legacy that I'd like to share. I put it into 3 parts for easier reading. This involves my Scoundrel (Helksan) and my Jedi Sentinel (Rheyja)

Hello All, I have been reading this thread for a few days, and I just Had to post something. This is the personal Head canon of my operative. Human Male
I don't really know what this week's prompt is, so I hope this works anyway for the thread.
Spoilered for length and major Agent Acts 2 and 3 spoilers.
This takes place way after game, at least ten or so years (maybe, I haven't really worked that bit out)
This is how He leaves the Business.

Alright. After a long absence, it's time for me to finally post something again. I'm sorry, there will be no comments this time, there's been so much activity during my impromptu hiatus! But I will try to catch up on the reading, and welcome to all the new posters

Today, we have two short bits. The first is an intro of sorts for my agent, who will hopefully show up in a larger capacity soon.

Title: For the Good of the Empire
Prompt: Disguises
Characters: Bryyn Harkness (Imperial Agent)
Length: 140 words
Spoilers: None

Takes place about a year and a half before the beginning of the agent storyline

Spoiler


And the second is for the Description prompt, which I don't thing I ever actually posted for Jessasi, despite it being done months ago. So, here we are.

Title: Captain Jessasi Silver
Prompt: Description
Characters: Jessasi Silver (obviously )
Length: 180 words
Spoilers: none

Takes place about five years after the beginning of the Smuggler storyline

Spoiler
I <3 alts!
