Double-posting. Haven't done that in a while.
The Story Thus Far: Uncharted Territory
For some reason I felt obliged to complete the summary before working on anything new in this AU. And half the summary had to come from the original short fic thread. Which took forever, because I am awful at summarizing anything.
So. A not very brief summary of the two principal characters before they met. The initial parts are mostly a reprint from the Short Fic thread, up to about the last paragraph or so where the AU diverges from my canon story:
Jesp Rixik (individual, no class spoilers)
Kirya Bilali (individual, no class spoilers)
Kirya and Rixik, Uncharted Territory (spoilers for smuggler story, all chapters)
