This is true! Maybe by the end of the semester I'll get some awesome grades or something, but eh. I was a lot better at anthropology. My grades were amazing.

I'm sorry Eliott, . Better to have tried and failed, then to have lived a lifetime with regret. xo I know it sucks now, so big hugs, you'll bounce back and figure something else out! <3

So today I got my first organic chemistry test back. And I did really really badly. Like, failed badly. And I looked at it and felt bad about myself and felt horrible about my future and finally I said, "Screw it, I am so done with this. I'm going to graduate school." I felt so relieved in that moment, that even though I was giving up on becoming a doctor it simply was not worth the stress and the emotional toll it was having on me anymore.

So your prompt this week is Changes or New Paths because despite the relief, this still does feel kinda crappy. It's something I really wanted and having to end it really does suck. But in the long run I think I will be happier. So write about that sort of thing this week.
I am happy that you are doing what you feel you should do. It's better to like what you are doing than live with something that you hate and ignore it. You will be much happier in the end. I also really like the prompts for this week. I hope you find a new path that you will be happy with.

With two immediate family members and my godfather in the medical field, I've heard horror stories about organic chemistry as the killer of doctor dreams. Sorry it didn't work out, but good luck to grad school and a new chapter of your life!

Prompt: Changes

Characters: SI (Mel'ake), Talos

Spoilers: Up to SI endgame

Ugh, organic chemistry. Orgo kills. Stepping out of the way of orgo killing you is very often a good career choice, not to mention a good sanity choice.

Let's see, Changes/New Paths for Vierce Savins. Spoilers for a Republic quest on Nar Shaddaa. 1900 words.

Eee, another Vierce story. I love Vierce and his Dorne interactions and his indecisiveness and everything about him.

Squee, Talos!

I hadn't heard the line you reference. That is very Talos. If anybody has records they can look through, I've located the conversation even though I didn't take the referenced response:

Elliotcat, so sorry to hear about O-chem. Think of it not as a roadblock , but a detour sign. Best of luck in grad school. (Who knows, maybe stuff will click sometime during the semester. It could happen)

@Imnotawitch:I love Talos. He’s adorable. Talos stories? Awesome!

@Bright: Vierce’s attitude toward Elara feels so spot-on to me, especially with his history regarding the Empire. This was a really interesting episode.

Ummm, no story from me yet. I just wrestled the screenshots and MSPaint into submission (my screenshots were saving only to the clipboard for some idiotic reason) and produced a basic Portrait Gallery of my characters, and an Action Gallery with poses! Nowhere near as good as Bright’s, I’m afraid. The closeups worked all right so I thought I’d try something else. Nobody has The Official Ponytail--my only character with a ponytail is male

Fierce Vierce is totally gonna hit that.

And Talos in another story? Eeeeeeee!! I find that man ungodly adorable!
I'll probably die if you group with me, but I'll go out with both lightsabers drawn stabbing someone in the face. Probably you, but it's cool. Forever Shenanigans!!
