It's been a while since I have posted in this thread but I finally wrote another little something, that I think is sharable for everyone who has not read the majority of my AU story. In this AU my SW and trooper companion Aric have *ahem* met before.

The previous posts i have written for these two, if anyone is interested.
Spoiler


NotLP: Behind the Scenes
Featuring: SW and Aric
Timeline: Takes place on Hoth approx. two months three weeks after Confessions.
Spoilers: Aric's companion quest on Hoth as well as a rank advancement based off the player's decision on Imperial Hoth. Think those are the only spoiler-y things.

Kitar, I love the way Kit's use of Force power is described.

For this week’s holiday…

Superstition – Both cultures and individuals can hold superstitions, little practices and beliefs that are supposed to put some spin on reality, make good luck or ill. Then again, some people say it’s all nonsense, and some even tempt fate by crossing superstitious lines. What superstitions does your character hold to? Has any experience seemed to prove or disprove the rule?

It probably would have happened later!

Prompt - Goodbye

Class - BH
Words - About 1150
Spoilers - End of BH Belsavis
Mention of torture

I like this hunter's style! As for Thorns, this is a scary look at his style. Highly readable prose as always. Looking forward to seeing where this goes!

Now about that prompt I should've posted yesterday...
Week of 11/1/2013
Goodbye – Would you believe we haven’t had this prompt yet? Goodbyes come in many forms, from the quick “see you later” of an everyday contact to permanent loss. Write about a time your character said goodbye…or couldn’t. Did it happen at a different place and time than in canon?

My First - Firsts are usually special - first items, like Jedi and Sith's first lightsabers or an agent or smuggler's first gun. First times, like your first time connecting with the Force or your first time stepping onto your ship. Firsts can change a person and solidify who they are. Write about a special "first" in your character's life and how it shaped them.

@bright_ephemera: Thank you very much for your motivating comment. I don't have the slightest idea where this is going. But it has been very much fun to write it. I am looking forward to finding out if and how much of the 'good' Thorns is hidden beneath the 'scary' one.

In fact I had so much fun with scary Thorns, that I postponed writing the next part of my Ord Mantell story.
I am following the ingame dialog with some additions.

Prompt - 'Allies' might fit
Title - Friends
Class - BH, where Thorns is one of the companions instead of Skadge
Words - About 550
Spoilers - End of BH Belsavis
Takes place right after this.

House of Something – The many and various worlds of Star Wars have many and various buildings (or large vehicles) that reflect their builders’ culture. Sometimes the style of architecture is really striking. Sometimes it’s less interesting than the events transpiring all over it. Write something involving a building or monument your characters have encountered.

This week's featured NotLP:
Worst Day Ever - Everybody has a bad day. So do our characters. Maybe it was in their class story - like getting your ship stolen on your birthday - or maybe it was something that happened before or after. Whether it genuinely was the worst day or your character was just in a bad mood and something happened to make it worse, write about a day that made them call it "the worst day ever".

Thank You – Gratitude is a big thing. People give thanks for gifts, social niceties, kind words, significant favors, for being offered company or for being left alone. Sometimes there are specific holidays or times dedicated to gratitude, and sometimes it just comes up on the way. What is your character grateful for? Do they admit it?

Shopapalooza – Whether it’s clothes, supplies, trinkets, spaceships, or groceries, our characters shop for a lot of things. Sometimes it’s a spending spree; sometimes it’s just window-shopping for what they can’t afford. It may be in a big chain mall, a backwater planet’s marketplace, an artisan’s gallery, or the Holonet. Write about your character’s shopping experience.

Changes/New Paths – Changes happen to all of us, and sometimes a defeat turns into a surprise opportunity…or the other way around. Either way, life goes on, and with it sometimes unexpected paths. Write about a life change or reinvention for your character.
