@Kitar: I have meant to comment long before this, but I am really enjoying your AU!! Aric is one of my favorite companions, which is funny because I hated him so much at the start of the Trooper storyline....I nearly stopped playing her! I think you have captured him well with your story and he is definitely not in an easy position right now.

Poor, Aric....I get the feeling a year is going to take a very long time indeed!

Can't wait to see more!

Hit and run post!


Week of 6/28/2013
Gifts - Gifts serve a multitude of functions, from hospitality, diplomacy, housewarming, affection, celebration, to manipulation or poison. They can be big or small, expensive or free, expected or surprising, public or private. Write about a gift your character has given or received. Did your AU character give or miss a gift that their canon counterpart never did?

And, as ever,

This week's featured NotLP:
Rites of Passage - There are tons of different rites of passage our characters go through. Some are common across cultures, like weddings. Some are specific to a culture, like coming-of-age ceremonies. And sometimes they are just an internal realization that your life has changed. Feel free to take this in any direction you would like.

@ Alaurin Thanks I'm glad you are enjoying it.

I always hesitate to actually post any of them, normally I just ship them off to my guildie to read.

I do love Aric, when I first ran across him in game he reminded me so much of one of my husband's sergeants at his first police job. The man was hard nosed, gruff and so irritating, but he was one of the most influential people there, taught my husband how to really do his job. In the end we both loved the guy, he ended up being a real sweetie.
So every time Aric would yell at my trooper I honestly just sat here and smiled, couldn't help it.

Alright, I’m going to wade into the AU waters here.

@Adwynyth Sorry I didn't comment earlier! I forget about this thread sometimes and I didn't notice you posted your part 4. I like where it's going. I hope you write more.

@marissalf Poor Kinka! The agent line does a really good job of putting you in a "can't trust anyone" mentality. Losing your team (even if it's Kaliyo whom I love, but really can't trust her either) would be terrible.

Prompt: Allies
Title: Dark Ally

@Adwynyth yay for more.

Malavai, the next time you're tempted to indulge in self-loathing for what you call your 'duplicitous nature and history', don't.
No... indulge in self-loathing. Swim in it until your fingers get pruney. Oh wait, this Quinn might be ok. Maybe. I'm watching you, Quinn.

I wonder how Lokin will take being around someone who can see right through all his bs. If I were him I might be alarmed.

Week of 7/5/2013
Navigation - Our characters often find themselves navigating toward a goal by means of maps, tracking signals, advisors, or instinct. Write about some guidance that pointed the way. Did it direct things further away from canon?
