I'm a little behind on my reading, but I'll work on catching up this afternoon and as soon as I do, I'll update the Index and comment.

However, I finally have the next part of my guys' intrigue finished, so here it is. It is a long one though (~5400 words), which is why I've gotten so behind with my reading......that and the in game events these past couple of weeks. Also, in case anyone's confused, here's the list of this storyline:


Title: A Race Against the Chrono
Prompt: Disguises, Out of Time, Allies
Character: Jaxzin Roark-Smuggler, Syarra Roark-JK, Natalia Bryce (aka Naula), Risha, Corso Riggs
Setting: Nar Shaddaa, roughly a week after Fashionably Late
Spoilers: Smuggler Belsavis, reference to the BH Act 2 finale, a vague reference to the JK storyline, but nothing really spoilerish.

This is just kind of an intro to a new character I started. I kept telling myself I wouldn't start a trooper because it was too expected, buuuut...I got inspired and wrote about one. I think she will be pretty interesting to play, especially with how I've set things up with her and Jorgan.

Hopefully I didn't miss anyone and if I did, I'm so sorry and it wasn't on purpose. I just got really behind and have a lot going on with my kids getting ready to start school this week.

Friday again, time for a new prompt.

Week of August 22, 2014
Coming Home: With the advent of strongholds, what or where does your character consider home? Do they have an apartment on Coruscant, a stronghold in the wilds of Dromund Kaas, a sky palace on Nar Shaddaa? Is their ship their home, wherever it travels? Maybe home is more about the beings they’re with--their squad, their crew, their companions. We had a prompt for “Stomping Grounds,” which was more nostalgia, a childhood or imagined home. This is more at the present. At the end of the day, where does your character come home?


And, as ever,

Night of the Living Prompt: Keep on using any prompt you like! Check out the list at http://www.swtor.com/community/showp...=7489974post=2 and http://www.swtor.com/community/showp...=7489991post=3 (yes, we’re up to two full posts!). Many thanks to Alaurin for maintaining these lists.


This week's featured NotLP:
Climate - Our characters visit a dazzling array of planets, moons, and extremely large ships with a wide variety of climates and weather conditions. Write about a time when your character had reason to notice.

I always feel like I write bad comments, and I'm sorry

Well, I meant to have this posted yesterday, but I was too tired from moving into my college dorm. I guess it's just practice for the rest of the year, being tired an all.

This is another shortened bit from She Who Battles Monsters, so again, if you're reading it, you should probably head over there.

Title: Searching for Myself
Prompt: A Matter of Public Record
Characters: Kiarn (Sith Inquisitor), Khem Val
Length: ~850 words
Spoilers: None that I can think of, other than who the first SI companion is

Index after the other Kiarn story I have posted here

On a side note, player housing has spawned another Jaxzin/Ka'van bit for this weeks' prompt, but I wanted to finish and post this next part before getting distracted by that. Okay, time for the next bit for my guys. This one's full of fluffy fluff, warm fuzzies, banter with an interesting end.....

Title: No Rest for the Wicked
Prompt: Allies, Affection, and some Alternate Perspectives for Natalia and Jorgan
Character: Zevryn Varlok-trooper, Natalia Bryce (aka Naula), Aric Jorgan, Elara Dorne, Tanno Vik
Setting: BT Thunderclap, Nar Shaddaa, roughly a week after A Race Against the Chrono
Spoilers: Trooper Act 3, specifically the A-99 mission just after Belsavis, a minor companion spoiler for Elara Dorne.

**warning: some warm fuzzies and innuendo below......
