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!!

Thanks on both counts! I'd been struggling to figure out how Vierce would come to like Elara as much as I do for, well, months. As for Doc and Quinn, I feel there's so much untapped potential in the fact that they were both active on Balmorra at the same time...I like to imagine they clash horribly any time they end up in the same room.

Don't worry about writing a story then picking a prompt; I think a ton of us do that. Anything that gets us more stories.

@icecreampants, I was ready to cringe and be miserable at the blackout condition, but I'm glad it ended up working for both of them.

@Ves, ugh, Imperial role selection: It's always done by other people, and cold people at that.

@irishfino, I was so intrigued when I first encountered the story of the bronze guardian Talos. I like what you do with it here.

So, Vierce. I'm going to skip the actual events of the Act 2 finale, because I'm lazy like that. Immediately after the Law and Governance entry, as in "holocall interrupts their makeout" immediately, Vierce and Elara get the call to move. Havoc Squad does its Havoc Squad thing, and, naturally, they triumph. Vierce picks up a few weeks later with this Health entry. I'm not sure any of the actual text spoils Trooper quests. 700 words.

Vesaniae - oh that was sad Imperial social dynamics are a PLUNGER*, aren't they?

Irish - What is Aldria's game between those two? Is she trying to get Talos to make the first move? Also, Talos is as adorable as ever and that gift would so be something he would do <3

Bright - Vierce being angry at kolto? Strangely appropriate As is Dorne's reaction; I should imagine that might be a learned response from being in the Imperial Military.

*I was going to say something else, but it's apparently a bad word. The stars system just annoys me though.

That's because Vierce is a damn good guy and wonderful and amazing and...ok, I'll stop crushing on your OC now

Mrtwo - (Discovery) Kouhun and Rizz are such a mix-match, it's awesome

icecreampants - (Morning After) Oh, the awkward! Lol, too funny!

Ves - (New Paths) Poor Tess, the typical Imperial and the Sith are soooo different in how they move through life. Explains why she has a soft spot for Imperial military too

fino - (Affection) Talos's gift was...crap I need a thesaurus cause I keep using cute and adorable when writing responses to these Aldria/Talos stories. Aldria doing some relatively benevolent scheming - nice

bright - (Health) I love Vierce and Jorgan's interactions. They're such...guys. Lol!

fino - (Celebrations) Goodness, that's quite an unexpected reaction there. Poor Talos

Rissa - (Song/Disguises) I loved this The atmosphere and Vector's reaction and everything!
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

@fino D:

@Irrissa I have a devastating weakness for lounge singers. <3

Now, before the prompt changes I have one more Myths and Legends, this one for Colran Niral, Ruth's father. About 700 words, no game spoilers.

Hide and Seek - Sometimes our characters need to find something they just don't have. Sometimes they need to keep something hidden from somebody else. Write about a time your character was hiding, seeking, hidden, or sought.

And, as ever,
