@ Vesaniae: Aww, characters being affectionate. So nice.

@ Bright: Lord Drowl's cleanup quest, heck of a first encounter. And, yeah, more characters being nice to each other.

Just goes to show it doesn't have to be all doom-and-gloom.

In the spirit of ignoring my own prompts to write for earlier ones...

Balkar's talk with Ardun Kothe, and Ardun Kothe's questioning of Cipher Nine, happens early in Vierce's Hoth sequence. That's where Jonas Balkar verifies that an Imp agent now operating as Legate was responsible for Elara's setup. In the mean time, Vierce's Cross Faction: Brotherhood. Trooper spoilers. 950 words.

Spoiler


And, following close thereafter, Cross Faction: Dreams and Nightmares II. No game spoilers. 1300 words.

Ok, I can see the screen. It's a little hazy, but I can see it. My nose is stinging though.

Cross Faction runs for days and days and days more. Hoth is horrible. This occurs right around the end of Vierce's Hoth, or in the day or two after (ack, timelining). On Quesh, after an intense couple of weeks on Cipher Nine's part, we reach more Goals and Ambitions…Act 2 Agent spoilers. 1100 words.

OO, Bright, these scenarios are dark mirrors of each other. I feel so bad for Vierce, then Cipher--is Cipher. (agent spoiler)
Spoiler
Why do I have the feeling that Vierce is going to end up blindsiding this guy. I just don't think this Cipher is going to expect the depth of Vierce's loyalty to his people and hatred of (almost) everything Imperial.

Agreed completely. I also love Vierce's mental ghost of Elara helping Vierce work things out. I'm glad she got a voice in this story even if it's only Vierce's image of her.

Cipher Nine gets off on the game, and he is far too accustomed to winning it. I'm not 100% certain, but (Agent spoiler)
Spoiler
The kind of unsporting individual who a) takes this stuff seriously and b) doesn't count lives as points really has no place in Cipher Nine's world. Sooner or later Vierce will have to show him, in no uncertain terms, that this isn't Cipher Nine's world.

Elara wasn't going to be there. She wasn't in the original twenty-six-scene arc draft. But then Elara was all "If you're going to invent a Trooper fic for no reason other than that you love me, you can't not invite me to the spinoff Trooper fic." And it's Elara! I can't be discourteous to Elara!
