That's a cool read :-)
I'm kinda confused as to where this whole 'frozen in carbonite' bit of the Fallen Empire stry has come from. I mean, Lana Beliko is still up and about according to the character list, and then if we also get the gunslinger from the original trailers as a comp... It can't be set that far in the future of the timeline...

Now, another story. This one won’t be as exciting as the last one, but I’m trying to alternate between Republic and Imperial, so I can’t just keep going. I’ll get back to it later.

Title: Star Destroyer
Prompt: Allies
Characters: Shenara the Agent, Arginall the Warrior
Chronology: During Black Talon, after Fast Exit, Dramatic Entrance, They Don’t Stand a Chance, before Lookalike
Spoilers: Not much, just the beginning of Black Talon
Words: 242

So good to see an active thread!

Week of June 19, 2015
Best Buddies: Does your character have a best friend? The one they’d like to hang out with just for fun, whether fun is cross-country skiing on Hoth or downing shots in a Nar Shaddaa Huttball cantina? The person who completed their sentences long before they met their significant other? Maybe became their significant other? Did your character stay in touch? Have they grown apart or away, the friendship almost remembered, but not quite important enough to restart? This week, write about your character being with, losing, forgetting, or reconnecting with their best buddy.

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 (we’re up to two full posts!). Many thanks to Alaurin for maintaining the prompt archive and story index here.


This week's featured NotLPs:
Vacation - Our characters have traveled hither and thither over a dozen or more planets for work, politics, personal vendettas, and more. But where do they go to relax and what do they do when they've got some time to unwind? Write about your character's vacation time. Prompt courtesy of Alaurin.

Confessions - Everybody has things they don't like to admit. Sometimes it's big, sometimes it's just something small. Sometimes it's nice to finally let it out. What does your character need to admit - and to who?



Got an idea for a prompt? Send me a pm!

Hey again, I've got another backlog of stories to post. Rather than firing them all off one by one, I'll just post the two that correspond with the current prompts and the one that follows immediately after. I'll leave the rest for when I've checked through and edited them. First though, comments.

Coments
Spoiler


Here is the first story. It contains a few darker moments and possibly some gore, though I do not view it as suficient to warrant warnings. If you feel I'm wrong, please point out in the comments. Without positive criticism, I don't know where the problems are and thus can't fix them. Don't worry, you'll never say anything worse than what I've told myself at one point or another.

Prompt: Dreams and Nightmares, Loneliness and Solitude
Title: The Price of Power
Perspective: Roan, Kid Sith; Vette, Twi’lek Adventurer
Word Count: 1,651
Spoilers: minor Black Talon, minor Korriban

Spoiler


And here is the second and third. They follow one after the other, with only walking down a flight of stairs and into the dining room. Before anyone asks, yes, this is my Kaas stronghold. If anyone wants, they can view it on the Progenitor. I think it's public, but might have to check that.

Prompt: Best Buddies, (Un)invited Guests
Title: Evening Plans
Perspective: Lord Braca of the sphere of Biotic Science
Word Count: 1,046
Spoilers: important early act I SI spoilers
Spoiler


and finally, the third story. This one mentions a darker side of the Sith power structure, with a slightly more sexual bent than other characters. It arises from a thought experiment I had with a friend regarding the eventual and somewhat self-imposed extinction of the Pureblood 'species' and ways they might mitigate this. There is nothing in the scene, it's just implied.

Prompt: Health, Cuisine, Description
Title: Her Master’s Servant
Perspective: Lord Braca of the sphere of Biotic Science
Word Count: 1,381
Spoilers: None
Chronology: After Evening Plans but before First Encounters

Spoiler


Oh, and before I forget. Happy Solstice everyone.

Finally! It took me longer than I’d have liked to get this story up. Between real life and actually playing SWTOR, it gets difficult. If this keeps up, I might end up posting here at a… a normal pace!

Title: Strength
Prompt: Worlds Colliding
Characters: Shiamma the Knight, Shiassa the Consular, Shonnoph the Trooper, Subject 4/Shialla the (No Class)
Chronology: Two hours after Adorable, 22 hours before Subject
Spoilers: None
Words: 418
