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!!

Premise: What if Ayrs didn't join the military?


I might spin this off into an AU, but I haven't decided (still working on getting my Inquisitor stuff ready).

Warning: Violence. minor gore, long

And on a happier Ayrs note

Prompt: Affection
Minor trooper spoilers, set on Alderaan (but during Act 2, pre-relationship. Barely before it, though.)

@Striges The Trooper is definitely written on a different moral axis from the Jedi/Sith/classic Star Warsy classes. Trooper DS/LS lines up much more with the hard decisions human beings have to make and live with, especially highlighting the times when the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few or the one, and you don't get mystical powers to guide your weapon or show you an unexpectedly clean way to victory. One might call the Trooper's different moral plane a weakness or inconsistency in the game universe, but I would call it one of the class's strengths - it definitely offers unique tests.

@irishfino, Geltie's litany of the steps to take to stay safe is heartbreaking. Because in the end, none of it really keeps you safe.

@Lesaberisa, you did a great job with the jarring thoughts of a person in shock about what he's just lost or can't stand to think he's just lost. (Thanks for the violence tag, by the by.) Vivid relationships drawn on a compact canvas - I really liked this. Then moving on to a crush on Elara was a comforting follow-on image.



Now some notes on Wynston's background material to date:

Myths and Legends, Wynston as a child hears a story
What If? AU, Wynston runs into his sister Calline (Callinel) just before the class line starts
Wynston in the Lodestone AU expands a little on his childhood (the conversation setting is alt-U, but all background information there is canon truth from a certain point of view)
Wynston in the Lodestone AU touches on the end of his relationship with Nyss (his love for Ruth is alt-U, but the paragraph on Nyss and the stated relationship with alcohol are canon truth from a certain point of view)


And, finally, Culture Shock with Wynston, fifteen years before the class line (spanning the accelerated Chiss adolescence of, for him, age 10-11). No spoilers. 300 words.

@ Bright. Needs a warning on that since I was smiling and melting into a puddle of goo in my cubicle, which is problematic if someone walks by. I'd also agree with your analysis re: Elara,

Spoiler


Character: Veresia (inquisitor)
Prompt: Changes/New Paths
Note: Minor SI spoilers

Spoiler


Notes:
Spoiler


Character; Malicineve (SW)
Prompt: First Impressions? Changing Impressions might be more accurate though
Notes/Trigger: As mentioned in my previous Malicineve short, she's kind of crazy and evil, so there's some unpleasantness to what she does. Also, minor SW spoilers.

Spoiler


Character: Amitia (JK)
Prompt: To Market, to Market
Notes: This story isn’t an author insert at all. Not at all, I swear. I'll get around to giving Amitia actual adventures at some point, too, since she's "me" (with force powers and weirder friends).

Spoiler


Character: Ayrs(Trooper)
Prompt: I Love This Bar/Affection

Spoiler


Notes/Chronology: (Minor trooper spoilers)
