Also, I agree with Tatile. Do it.
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!!

That is all.

But omg so funny I am only not laughing out loud because then my son would ask what is so funny and he is way to young to explain it to. He's paying too much attention to the other computer to notice, thank goodness.

Err, anyway, here's a full 3k words on Vierce's background with Seven Deadly Sins and Seven Virtues. Conveniently, this corresponds to the seven original members of the Ridgeside crew (Kirsk was only around the edges)…and in fact, the core never varied much from seven. No game spoilers.

(Edit: For context, Vierce grew up on an occupied world; the only plot-relevant stories I've published to date that really touch on his neighborhood crew are Teachers and Heroes, set in 4 BTC, or five years before this sequence begins; and (Bad) Memories, which takes place early in 6 ATC, between this sequence's Courage and Wrath/Justice.)

Amazing how 3k words can fill out a past so richly. Also, I love Vierce probably more than I should

After the last 4000 words I produced I respect Vierce a helluva lot more than I respect, say, Wynston.

Wonderful look into parts of Vierce's background, Bright.

I'm a nut for details; there was a lot of great stuff here. The bit at the end about "rearranging the constellations" stood out to me. It's one thing to know, intellectually, that star patterns would be different viewed from a different planet, another to put that dry boring fact in a character's words and language and have it belong there.
