@YoshiRaphElan: Captain Coruscant? Pfft, he doesn't stand a chance against the Incredible Houk. So yes, in FCD-terms that's it :P

@bright_ephemera: I suppose the party was wild. I wasn't there, but I think 20 years earlier I would have loved it. Back in the shared apartment times there were always a lot of people gathering for coffee the morning after a party.

@alaurin: I hope that was a lot of nice memories to make up for the last story. I'd rather make you smile than bring tears to your eyes

I like the slight modification in your story. I think it's not very rational that you are not able to pursue Wraith with part of the team ingame

@DarthSillyMonkey: Luckily I never was THAT drunk myself or only in the right company, but I heard a lot of 'I'll never again drink alcohol'

Glad you all liked the pictures.

I'm way too far behind on comments so I'm going to skip them. I have been really enjoying sneaking into the topic ot read when I can, great for entertaining myself as I face constantly huge amounts of work at the office

Character: Amitia (JK)
Prompt: Fitness/Competition
Notes: No real in-game spoilers, though the JK Nar Shaddaa storyline is mentioned.


Character: Malicineve (SW)
Prompt: LF1M
Notes: No game spoilers, set pre-Balmorra


Character: Veresia (Inq)
Prompt: To Market, To Market
Notes: Minor spoiler (about how the Inquisitor story ends for Veresia)


And...I already sort of plugged my stories in a previous post, and the links are in my signature. Trooper one is a little more personal/"down-to-Earth", Inquisitor one is more tied into actual plot, blahblahblah. are my characters, since putting faces to names seems kind of neat. Spoiler tags due to image sizes (also because resizing them is apparently beyond me at this hour)

Amuri, my BH, getting ready to blow Skadge away.

Veresia, my Inquisitor, staring blankly at something

Her brother, Ayrs, my trooper, looking typically befuddled on Balmorra.

Amitia, my JK, hanging out with Kira

Olympia, my JC, showing more emotion than she ever did in-game.

Malicineve, my SW, stomping around her ship and terrorizing Vette

Mina, my neglected agent, wondering if Kaliyo is plotting something

Prompt: Pimp My Stories

Most of my stories have started here in the Short Fic thread then spun off to become something... barely readable. But fun.

Ninety Seven Percent


Quinn Quinn Quotes

From Brute to Silly: the Life of Ald

The Misadventures of Mischievous Malavai

Stuff My Companions Say

Ninety Seven Percent: Lekku Effect

Rarh, this exercise has shown me how little I've updated some of my threads. Sad face. Ah, well, I hope the writing bug will bite me again soon.
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!!

I won't post any comments or replies here, but please know that I read (pronounced red) all the stories and loved them and read the comments and appreciated them. My lapses in post-time are largely due to an addiction I am trying to break. Writing really helps and I should do it more, so I shall, and try to comment and reply as much as I can from now on.
Sequel to

Words: 1038
Prompt: Xenobiology (Sort of. The way that I am writing these things makes it hard to assign just one prompt.)
Warnings: Mentioned amputation (not sure if that would affect someone but you never know, right? If this does make you not want to read my stories, please note that all future stories about Rizz will have him as an amputee, and I'm sorry if this means you won't read them anymore.)
Spoilers: None

Story time! Going way, way back for this one. I think this is the earliest thing I've written for Kinka, going all the way back to the agent prologue.
NotLP: First Impressions
Title: Hutt Hospitality
Spoilers: Some dialogue from the agent prologue. Hovering around 2000 words.

I'm reading along and enjoying. A couple of plot notes:
A minor thing about the Agent prologue re: marissalf's story:

The Trooper's Act 1, re: alaurin's story:

Striges' promotional copy reminded me that I do have a Tumblr on which I post, not much actual fic, but a lot of rambling about my characters. So that's here.
