Here's my entry for Turning Point:
Aww, poor Miriah!! Although I do have to wonder what her older sister would have done if/when she found out what happened.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Child Remi is adorable. "I already know how to sit"...I sympathize.

And Miriah! I had no idea!

Here's a Turning Point for Trooper Vierce Savins, since I’m just now figuring out where he came from and what he's doing with his life. 900 words. No spoilers.

Iamthehoyden, in my mind, Maura finds out and files a report with the academy, but Miriah refuses to go back once she's felt the freedom of a smuggler's life. After a six month apprenticeship, Miriah uses her life savings plus the inheritance her father left her to by the Stardancer.

Bright, love this story line! Your trooper is exactly what I would expect a trooper to be.

Republic, just read your story, and am so glad your Vette is portrayed with intelligence and feelings!

Striges, wow!

Svein, really enjoyed this!

Maybe I can get caught up after ops tonight!
Love is the strongest magic of them all.

He definitely doesn't come across as a dolt, more as a guy who has always had dirt under his fingernails. The kind that is full of common sense and responsible and bullheaded tough. As a girl who grew up in a blue-collar family in a blue-collar part of the country, I love him

Troopers are really coming out to shine this week. I guess someplace like a galaxy far far away would have a million turning points for soldiers. I'm really liking the stories so far. So here's Ipha's and some ways Brei'yu's

Turning Point


Minor spoiler for the previous leader of Havoc Squad.

Awww, poor girls, I hate seeing families torn apart, especially when it's someone you love doing something stupid that you REALLY want to shake them silly for.

@Magdalane Poor Miriah! (Sadly it is also something that could and has happened. )

@bright_ephemera Yay more Vierce, I like where you're going with him. It will be interesting to see how he handles witnessing all the Republic's up's and downs if you continue with him.

@Morgani sad to see them torn apart. I like to think Brei is still doing good even if she's on the opposite side AND she gets to have Vector.

@iamthehoyden Yikes, a very bad day. I had to laugh at the fake though. I keep wondering if it's worth it to put up with skadge just to get blizz.

Pierce again. Followed by Scourge again. I am not in any way biased in this recommendation.

I should really do some Lord Draahg alternate histories...

@Magdalane that was sad. I mean wow that really makes you think because that sort of thing happens not just in Star Wars. Fantastic job!

@bright_ephemera I think Verice is going to be the next Ruth! You have done a fantastic job with him so far and I am enjoying the way your writing him. I just hope that he can come to terms that the Republic is not the perfect happy plac he thought it was. Great job!

@Morgani Man this was just wow. What an interesting story. I always love any of your trooper stories but his was awesome. Great job on this

@iamthehoyden I laughed when they found out it was a fake. But, that would have been a horrible day for them. Also, I'm glad Skadge is out. I still could not even see why he would even think of coming along with me.... And I with him. He's just so ugh. Great job!

@Kabe That was awesome! I loved little Remi, shes just so awesome. "I already know how to sit" was probaly my faverite line. I also, can't wait to see what you do with Master Xin. Great job on this!
