Striges, I loved both pieces! Even though I haven't played the story, you made it come alive with the countdown for the agent. And Rixik, all his life experience has shown him that everything has a price, but I think he's found one person who's price he just can't pay.

In light of all the math stories, this one is on the Home Ec prompt- continuing the Mir/Corso story. No spoilers, about 700 words.

@Magdalane, your Home Ec had me grinning like an idiot.

@Striges, spring flowers burning in a bonfire of autumn leaves is exactly perfect for Jaesa, Varrel, and the sensory descriptions of the leadup. Bravo. As for Jurial, I can really see Jedi masters admonishing their students against lacy underthings. Then scrambling to explain why they know about their students' lacy underthings. And Rixik and Andalar, how rare to see Rixik matched against a decent guy. The circles he moves in, you don't meet that many to contrast against. As for Sha'ra'zaed, the countdown analysis was excellent. As is the thought, at the end, that she's being penalized because she didn't prioritize the 'right' things.

@Fino: Quinn. Calculations. Models. Bizarrely, this mindset is one of the times when I sympathize most with him. (Yes the math prompt was my idea.)

@Tatile, Rochester and Broan talking it through. <3 I wholeheartedly approve of the coziness of doing paperwork and being terribly, terribly ordinary. And hugging.

As Jurial pulled a very lacy, very feminine undergarment out of the pile and quickly passed it down the line to one of the female padawans to be folded, he was not at all sure this was such a good idea.
I laughed entirely too loud at this line. Entirely.

And I loved the countdown mixed in with Sha'ra'zaed's thought process. One of the harder decisions in the IA story, no doubt.

This was adorable. I love this line, in no small part because I can hear Risha saying it in a fake stage-whisper to Gus. Corso and Miriah ignore them completely.

Thanks so much for the complements on everything. For my Agent, I was also trying to set up Act 2, hence my choice of Keeper, etc. I'll have to post a pic of Jurial as soon as he gets off Tython with some nicer gear and no longer looks like Shrek in a bathrobe (so around level 50?).

And then, just when you think you might get decent looking stuff, you get oven mitts for your arms! Loved the Home Ec piece, but I really think he'd have trouble pulling the trigger himself on Kirya. You can see how slippery he's become, though. Nicely done!

Ah, putting Skadge on highly-disposable duty. I approve.

Logic, the checking of the confirmed survivor/confirmed dead ID lists was wrenching. Well done.

Now, the AU thread has been devouring my brain with math, but here I'll put some Home Economics: Coziness for Colran Niral. 500 words, no spoilers.

It was great because it was so real, meeting new people is awkward, I only know three people who have no problems striking up a conversation with a stranger, one of them is my three year old son.
