As always <3 Wynston. Ruth is such a good person inside, even under the mistakes and lashing out and the rest. She needs lots of hugs. Pity the Empire is so short of ones that don't come with a knife in the back.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

@bright Poor Wynston he of all people should know he can't save everybody, especially not Kaliyo. I'm really loving the Lodestone AU.

Week of 11/30/12
I Love This Bar - We all do our time in the watering holes of the galaxy. What's your character's favorite memory of things seen, heard, done, purchased, insinuated, shot, kissed, imbibed, discombobulated, or otherwise rendered memorable in a cantina?
Night of the Living Prompt - So remember all those ideas or half-finished scraps you had for earlier prompts? You know how it feels way too late to post it now? Resurrect your favorite prompt - let us know which it is! - and give us a story! (Kudos to kabeone for maintaining the master AU prompt list!)

Double post to <3 Coremi. Partly because, man, Vowrawn, and partly for surprising Scourge, and partly for Scourge having about half a second of surprise and then "Well, that saves me some effort," because it takes more than that to blow Scourge away.

Quadruple post.

Zombie prompt Lodestone: Allies II, and almost certainly not the last. This one was extraordinarily difficult to write for some reason. Spoilers for Warrior Act 3. 2200 words.

Wynston's...um...yeah, that wasn't irritability...was palpable. My stomach knotted up because you know who won't say 'I was wrong.' It eats at me until I want to shake him so hard his brain falls to pieces.

Baahahahah! And yeah, I'm glad I'm not the only one put off by the term they chose for that particular outfit style.


As for the inevitable Quinn-seeing-Wynston, I think simply saying 'I was wrong' might break Quinn at this point. Time and a definitive end to the campaign will allow for other thoughts eventually, but here as in canon the time period is marked by rigid recitations of his reasoning - I think that's all he's prepared to deal with. Too bad admitting he was wrong would be the only starting point anyone around him will accept.

Quinn's offer is genuine; even if he isn't ready to handle contrition he can handle doing something. In canon he was never given the chance to make that offer. Here when a new factor shows up Quinn has exactly one chance to change things, but said factor is more interested in yelling "**** you" than in listening. Quinn's got nothing left to lose and only one thing left to give. He screwed up too hard for even that to matter.

The conversation is Quinn and Wynston's dynamic in a nutshell: "I can't believe a scumbag like you is questioning the value I bring to this endeavor." The intensity of the term substituted for "scumbag" changes over time; the sentiment doesn't, not for many years to come.
