Oh, also, fun fact: For quite some time my mental Ruth timeline involved Wynston getting himself killed on one job or another within five years of the end of the game line. When I started RMC, Wynston was not in my mental model of the galaxy. I just figured a guy like this can't possibly last long in work like this.

Way to talk me out of that plan, Wynston.

Knew he was a jerk. :P
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!!

Quinn watched Wynston dabbing under his arm with the antiseptic. "You're missing the worst of it. Here. Keep your arm up." He moved in to do the cleanup himself. "You're lucky I was too principled to just leave you back there."

"Inconvenient sometimes, being a hero, hm?"

"You wouldn't know."
The bickering between these two is awesome.

Quinn in a nutshell, lol.

"Where you're from, Mister Dromund Kaas, severed arteries are considered acceptable on the grounds that if you weren't fast or smart enough to avoid it yourself, you probably had it coming."

"That's...actually a very good point. I hadn't thought of it that way."
Heeheee, Mister Dromund Kaas...

Quinn sneered. "Don't think this makes us friends."

"Friends? Please. At no point in this operation did I hit my head that hard." Wynston started walking, doing his best not to look like he was limping on the tightly bandaged ankle. "All the same. I'll see if I can find us a mission that'll let you speechify a bit."
Whoohooo, speechification!

Yes please, I think we all need a victorious-gloating Quinn speech. =D

Hmm... I really need a reason for Quinn and Wynston to make out. I really do. Then they can have that whole awkward "It was for the mission thing." Then as they walk away, they each look back when the other one isn't looking.

ehehee I'm sorry. I'll stop.

You people are terrible! And this is horribly tempting. But I'm trying to have at least one player character who doesn't get to sleep with Quinn. I feel somehow that I can keep a little self-respect if I do that.

My brain's been awful about victory-speech situations lately. I'll have to find something for poor Quinn to do before the stealth operations drive him into the wretched, wretched depression of career frustration.
