Tatile, this delighted me beyond words. So, er, feel free to substitute words on how much I liked this POV from a superior who had been strikingly interesting even from Rochester's perspective.

It's kind of weird, pretty much all of my male characters are these cuddly, emotionally vulnerable individuals who kind of require each other to stand up, let alone walk, but when I write my female characters they're all like:

Screw this, I'm amazing!

And push the boys off their chairs so they can steal their seat.

Also, my first time seriously writing First Person. I was thinking of what to do for this prompt and that short was the one that really stuck out in my mind. She was fun to write back then, but more fun this time around.

@Tatile I enjoyed every word of this and read it before the original passage just to see if I would recognize it. I recognized it right away (hilarious!) and it makes me wish for more things from this woman's perspective. You gave those academy trainers far more personality that I had thought to give them credit for. <3

@Tatile, Let's be honest, your women are pretty awesome. The world can always use more strong female characters.

Striges - "Would there be enough time, she wondered, to share it all? Was she selfish to hope there would be? Was she pushing too hard, trying to to make the most of the limited time she had remaining?"
This makes Yuon make so much more sense on Tython.

QwibQwib - Briel Blast it, that's not sad enough. I need an emoticon that is tears rocking in a corner. Ugh, I just want to hug him and make sure he's warm and dry and away from evil Sith.


Tatile - omg that was awesome. "Seriously, kid, stop, you're making me feel bad for getting shot." Seriously awesome "Did I f*cking stutter?" And more awesomeness upon awesomeness.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

@ Tatile: I remembered the earlier piece well. Opened your link and knew it with the first sentence. The Major was an interesting character even before--I loved the scene from her perspective this time. Still so matter-of-fact. Mad at everyone. I'm sure her underlings weren't meant to be funny--in Rochester's perspective they certainly weren't--but her attitude toward them as nearly incompetent made them so. Also: "We're all slaves to the Empire here. Learn your place." Prophetic.

@ QuibQuib: Oh Briel. Definitely needs some hugs (and a credit card, or at least a prepaid long-distance holonet card). And proxy hugs to his author--I hope things look better for you soon.

I figure the legal status of an escaped slave (particularly non-human) in the Empire would be analogous to something between an illegal immigrant and a stolen car.

Yuon says she had the Consular's training "all planned out so carefully", and the rest is from Qyzen's remark at the very end of the Tython quest line. I don't know that she's so much distracted, or focused on her own problems, as aware that events are out of her control and that she has no way of stopping or slowing them, no matter how much she might want or need to.

I haven't written anything in a long time, but I liked the Alternate Perspective prompt so much that I found inspiration and rewrote my What's in a Name post starring Tess'iri and Zenith.

So, spoilers for Consular Balmorra and some Zenith class quests. I also made some stuff up for Zenith to give him an appropriately tragic background.

I've been enjoying everyone's work while I took a break from the game and my fan fics. I'm hoping I can get back into the rhythm of this place again.
