Mix It Up - For this challenge you can write anything you like. The catch? Someone else's character has to be in it along with yours. It can be your friend's or someone else in the thread as long as you have gotten their permission and as long as your story involves your character and another player character that you don't play - NPCs, companions, etc don't count. Get creative with this one and see what cool stuff you can come up with. We have some really talented minds in here and I'm sure people will come up with some awesome stories.
Ooh! I can't wait to do Catching Up. As for Mix It Up, I don't think I could do any other writers' characters justice.

But anyone and everyone is free to have any of my characters cameo in their stories!

I'm sure Eleya and Esiri won't mind.

And Dean...well, he doesn't really say no to anything.
"Don't walk behind me; I may not lead. Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend..."

Catching Up
This is an extra part of my JK story. Remi is recovering from something that made her crazy. She gets a visit from a few friends from her past. Spoilers for JK story line Quesh and Tython.

*sob* I really didn't want to be the only one posting from the previous prompt on the last day after the next prompt was announced Curse the forum profanity filter starring out parts of perfectly good words. And having to go in and manually italicize from my word file.

Prompt “Communication Breakdown”

Title: “Coming Down”

Characters: Rixik (Bounty Hunter), Mako, 2V-R8.

Yes, that’s right, I actually wrote something involving the ship droid.

This follows “Recreational Pharma”, since I did get something of a request for it:


It does tie to this week’s theme, if at an oblique angle. Sorry to write so much with this guy recently. He’s the character I’m playing the most right now.

No spoilers.

I'm sorry I missed this earlier. this was the greatest thing, I loved the mix of languages, I know people who will swear/speak in 2 or 3 languages in one sentence when inebriated. pure awesome.

Hey elliotcat, I'm not sure if you want to keep with the current index or use bright_ephemera's index but I updated the one I keep around for myself so here it is. Spoilered for page space.

I've been avoiding agent spoilers like the plague so I haven't seen as much of Wynston as I'd like (someday I'm coming back and going through them), but I just wanted to say I'm really enjoying this dynamic. I hope Quinn swims in guilt and regret until his fingers get all pruney, to paraphrase a fun quote.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

Fortunately, I didn't see the index until after it was fixed, so all is good!
