Really really liked it Hoyden, and the observation so true. I thought you did well in first person.

Imperial officers. Don't ever write them seriously. Don't ever get attached. Plus I just finished up BH Balmorra this evening with the bonus of being an alien. Boy, do those people have respect, class, and humanity...oh wait they don't.

I had hesitated to timeskip on Vierce, but I guess I already jumped ahead to show major events. So this is an instance of Worlds Colliding on or near Balmorra. 700ish words, no game spoilers.

Bright, I can feel Vierce's pain and the slight nagging uncertainty in this. As always, excellent job.

Morgani, always love Aurai stories, and the introduction of the pendant/key was masterful. Really enjoyed this!

Aren't they just precious? Going through the bh story as an alien is a lesson in never being allowed to forget how much scorn is possible to be infused in a voice.

Striges - Varrell - ALWAYS an interesting character, just fascinating
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

OUCH.
Quinn would never pass up the opportunity to put someone in their place if he appeared to have the power to. It's also another sneaky hint about events down the line.


I've only just realized I've forgotten to actually thank people for reading and responding to my keyboard flailings! Thank you! Thank you all!
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!!

Striges, loved it! Varrel is always interesting, but this story and the little insight into his thought processes there before the Hutt were very well done! Thanks for that story.

@hoyden - Solomon's voice is fantastic. I love the detached, predatory assessment of Skari's crew. There's no personal malice, just cold, brutal instinct — the snake imagery as Solomon is sizing up Gault is perfect.

@bright - It's heart-wrenching just how terribly alone Vierce is, even surrounded by comrades-in-arms. And the one person who might be able to understand, who has anything even approaching his knowledge of the Empire's atrocities, is the one person he can't bring himself (yet) to deal with, because Dorne's understanding comes from the wrong side of the line.

@Striges - Varrel's protection of Vette here, her spiritual well-being as well as physical, reminds me of his realization that she is his Fool back in Only Men Dance. As much as he wants her to stay Vette for her own sake, he needs her as she is to keep him grounded and human. The closing image of Varrel putting away his swords and his decency for safekeeping is beautifully "happy for deep people."

Varrel has style. I like.


Umm, I know I'm kind of all over the place this week...brain is all wonky but a Disguise for Vierce came up. From an earlier and different time; this is set between 1.5 and 2 years before Vierce leaves his home planet. 800 words.
