Belated responses, because I'm slow:

@ Earthmama: From the first, gender-bender Quinn has been an interesting examination of social prejudice (imo). Reversing the roles didn't make either characters' actions any more acceptable, but they did seem more typical. That F!Quinn would fall for the M!Warr felt inevitable. That basic dynamic (don't hurt me, but: Defroting the Ice Queen) has been in both dramatic and comedic fiction forever, a staple. Not a knock against your writing, far from it. I really like that Anders' feelings for Miranda are genuine. I'm interested to see how the rest of this turns out, given how you're following the original game story.

(see you tomorrow after wasting a day on TVTropes)

I enjoyed the entry immensely, but this bit stood out for me, combined with Ruth's later hallucinations. A sensible Sith, for a change. LS in the Empire, and as Sith in particular, has got to be a tough road.

Rixik and Kirya: Chiaroscuro

Prompt: Good/Bad Memories

Title: Memories (not the most creative title, sorry)

I wasn’t going to do anything with the new prompts until I wrapped up A Night to Remember, but this shook loose and demanded to be written down. The tone was far from silly, so it kept interfering with the definite silliness of the other piece.

Just over 300 words. No spoilers.

Chronologically, this takes place before the class stories begin. It references events in Judas from the Original Short Fic thread, which occurs even earlier.

Son of a...I didn't copy in the time-setting note I had written. And that file is at home, and I'm just pre-business trip. Grumble.

That was lovely Striges, The above line never fails to get a smile out of me.

As to what you said about my Gender Bender, I am fully aware F/Quinn is a bit of a cliche. One of my goals in writing it, is trying to truly mirror M/Quinns attitude and applying it to a woman, which in this case was an "Ice Queen" . Male Quinn is suuuuch an Ice Queen in game. I'm glad you're still enjoying it, and that Anders is coming off the way I want him to.
