Darth Nox spends the evening at her favorite bar, casting a predatory gaze over the male clientele. She’s been feeling strangely wistful, haunted by dreams that she can barely remember. She spies a young man with pale blue eyes and bleached white hair, and even though she normally abhors that particular fashion trend she decides that she must have him, now. He eagerly succumbs to the power of her charms. The Citadel is much too far to wait; she has her way with him in a nearby alley, and feels distinctly unsatisfied after. She doesn’t know what she’s looking for.
...more like who she's looking for.


*dies of laughter* Oh, man. I love it. ;D

Ves, those are gorgeous and poignant. I...I may have done some less meaningful ones for my characters because I love the idea that much and I hope that's okay.

No game spoilers. These vary in time period; Wynston is way past game in Ruth-less, the Sith are post-game, everyone else is during game, I guess.

Prompt: Climate (!)

Characters: Vashutarl (JK), Kira Carsen

Title: Love is in the Air (Corny. Sorry.)

No story spoilers. Kind of climbing on the Valentine’s bandwagon today, but why not.

Double-posting belated replies because I’m slow.

@ Bright: Nalenne’s manipulation is brilliant--she wins anyway. Quinn’s objection to the ‘holiday’ is so very Quinn. Probably true, but no less Quinn-y for it.

Fun drabbles. I really wish I was better at tying my characters together; they always seem to end up in their own little worlds, isolated from everyone else. I envy your characters sometimes (the bit with the flowers and the twins in the beginning was hilarious.)

"What do you suggest?"

"Something more permanent."
Beautiful.

I am going to be laughing at this line for a while.

Tiny slices of life. These were really good, I enjoyed them a lot, but this bit was very touching.

Kata forms: Like cold showers, but with broader practical applications. Also, I have always wanted more Orgus Din content; Kira impersonating Orgus Din would be an acceptable, hilarious solution.

Isoviel: Ah, that moment when you realize your brat sibling landed a good one. Before you did. What the hell? She must have used witchcraft. Jerk.

I realized after posting that I made Larr Gith ultra depressing by saying, in her fragment, that Doc never seems happy anyway. I meant the complete opposite! He never seems unhappy with their ridiculous excesses. That has been corrected in the text.

Ves, upon re-re-reading your drabbles (don't judge) I still adore them. The raw spare shorter statements of loneliness - "She doesn't know what she's looking for", everything Arden Zariel thinks, Drusilla "know[ing] she never will be", "His heart isn't in it" - they're fantastic. The image of the chalice laced with cracks for Thaera is just gorgeous, the way Khem Val thinks of Darth Nox is perfectly fitting, I keep coming back to Nox herself, and apparently I'm a mushfest today. Mush. Fest.

@Striges Yay Ian background! Also, I love Vashutarl's Kira and her difficulty maintaining the Padawa/Master dynamic. I always wonder how old they thought the JK should be considering Kira is supposed to be 20. I think I'd be having difficulty not strangling her, but then I guess that's very un-Jedi-like.

@Tatile eeeee so many hearts for that last one

Swoooon.

@bright_ephemera Freak trophy case accident and Tharan, I haven't gone far enough into Consular to know what I think of him. Poor guy.

And stacking the deck in her own favor so that she wins no matter what? Nalenne does know how to please her man.

@Ves I loved the mini-drabbles especially

@iamthehoyden "Looking for a woman with a boat... must send picture of boat." I've heard that joke so often, there must be to something and the fisherman thing. As to Crae, he seems like such a sweetie for trying even though he really doesn't get the "civilized traditions" thing. <3

I hope I'm cool enough to be here, [and do we just post short stories? or are there plots we right about?]
