That line was great I really really like how Rixik is multi-lingual. You make that very much a part of the story without clobbering us over the head with it - it's just a part of who he is. Also, I adore anti-heroes and AU Rixik is thoroughly in that category. Love him! I think the split timeline works well here.

@Striges I love the Rixik's hungover gutter-polyglotism, I also thought Corso singing in the other cell was appropriate and hilarious. (I am also quite guilty of the flashback/forward thing. I think it's because my stories start so slowly that I need to go to somewhere interesting first then backtrack, maybe I should just learn how to edit better )

@bright_ephemera I love how sweet Wynston is while still being the total agent "Yeah I'm saving your life but I'm doing it for me not for you... mostly."

Prompt: Backfired Plans

Title: An Night to Remember, part 2

Characters: Rixik, Corso.

Previous Chapters:
Intro
A Night to Remember, Part One

@Kabeone: Everyone uses flashbacks. I do it all the time. Less often flash-forwards, other than skipping what would otherwise be tedious and boring to read. When done appropriately the technique serves the plot and you don’t notice it as a device. When done poorly, though, it sticks out as unnecessary. Paid authors are as guilty as anyone. It’s not limited (or even as common; I think the fad is passing) to fanfic and amateurs. I like your stories; the comment was not directed at anyone in this thread.

I tend to write pretty linear stories, so the non-linear aspect really stood out for me. I had to talk myself into starting it that way. Then I guess I felt I had to apologize for it, since I wasn’t quite convinced I was doing the right thing.

Thanks everyone for sticking with this story, and for the praise. Nearly 2500 words this time.

Contains spoilers for Corso companion quests.

This is just wonderful; I giggled a ridiculous amount. The description of the effects of the drink was superb - you have such skill with description. Pefect word choices. And the bit at the end, an interesting addition to a complex character. Looking forward to the rest!

@Striges I love how you worked the Corso conversations in there, even funnier because those are the responses you use to flirt with him.

I love Knightless just as much as I loved the original Remi story. I'm addicted to Remi, I just love her!

Wonderful piled on top of wonderful. Striges, those two working their way up to trouble are hilarious, and kabe, I almost cheered when you mentioned that last NPC - one of so many highly recognizable people whose paths changed or, critically, didn't, due to Coremi's career!

Also loved the whole confluence of the SW-JK Tatooine stories. Well done!

Ditto. I can't wait to see where this goes.
