Now I have one image of a list that looks like:

Open-ended, yep, I'm sure that would bring out the wrong crowd.

OMG I am still giggling over the first box. With Sith, that might not be a joke. Now sending my husband to check it out because he was giving me weird looks for laughing at my computer.

Hehe, there's nothing wrong with giggling at the computer, or crying at the computer, or swearing at the computer......what? you guys are good writers

NotLP: The Story Thus Far

By popular demand:

Ian Kughel
, Trooper (a trooper not the trooper, and that link goes to his portrait. No spoilers)

Spoiler


Notes: I’ve updated my original summary page to include Ian Kughel’s story, and I changed the portrait link in that post to one that includes him with all the other characters. Little of this will be new to anyone who read my LF1M entry.

Ahaha, the image of Skari encountering a slightly different grenade approach...men, you know?

And yay, Kughel background!

Now, at 1000 words, game spoilers only so far as the existence of Tharan Cedrax's associate. I can't write about a character Tara Strong has voiced without making a My Little Pony reference, in the title if nowhere else; thus, a Ruth-Less very loose (read: almost unrelated) LF1M, My Little Operative: Friendship is Very Advanced Technology.

I blame Ald's inherent silliness on his responses. Also, Ald is slightly insanely crushing on Quinn.

Now that's what I love to hear. I love it when people have visible reactions (even if I can't see them) to the things I write. MUAHAHHHAHAAH!!

Eeee, I'd love to see more of these written by other people. Reactions to companions varies so much, it's interesting to see/read. I love it!

I always want to scream at Kira "NO, YOU'RE NOT EVEN CLOSE. SHUT UP!" But I might dislike her a little bit... [shrugs] What can ya do?


Thanks for reading everyone!!!


And now...
NotLP: Companion Sayings
Uni: Ald the Silly Sith Warrior
Characters: Ald and Quinn

S**t My Companions Say, continued

Spoiler
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!!

Bright:
Quinn looks like he stepped out a romance novel and with his "air of noble suffering" he practically is one. Personality might need a little work.

And poor Holiday! Those two were sizing her up like a piece of meat. She needs some e-i-cream and a hug. Waking up like that *mumble grumble* and to Wynston! *mumble grumble* and then Quinn!

Irish:
Taken out of context, a lot of the companion lines could be ended "in bed", but with Quinn it just works.

Ok, first of all - Kughel has a background!! (Striges, you do realize he's loose now, writing more is inevitable )

Second - bright - Tharan's fate...yeah, cue maniacal laughter leading into full-scale giggles at 'inadvertent smoldering.'
Spoiler
bwahahahaha!

Fino, I don't want to take credit for that idea, cause it's an awesome one; what do you think of starting a Sh*t My Companions Say thread in Story and Lore or Fan Fic (since it would involve OCs)?

Hi! I'm trying something new. I wrote this out half way then my mind said 'Ooh impulse time!' so i scrapped that and wrote in first person. More Ennaly, Woohoo! I think it reads like a diary entry but I really wouldn't know (never had a diary ). Shorter than my usual stuff 424 words.
Prompt: Climate
Title: Hey! That's Cold!

Isoviel, the 90% uptime on her waxing rhapsodic about all possible Corso details is both endearing and hilarious. Also, Hoth is terrible. Love it.
