Loved this! My immediate reaction was to think of the TV Tropes page Shut Up, Hannibal!

I was going to drive by post but nope, STORIES TOO AWESOME NOT TO COMMENT.

I have so many favorite lines I could make a book of favorite lines, but that one goes on the first page. In bold. <3

The whole concept of Rixik Agent is so awesome and it makes sense for Keeper to put him with Kaliyo because really Keeper doesn't care about either of them as long as he can get some work out of them. Also, I'm guessing the noble ones get killed a lot.

@bright I loved this ending and tie up. Of all the people the trooper meets Balkar probably is the most trustworthy, which is probably the saddest indictment of the people the trooper meets.

And thank you for the 'What If?' epilogue. *sniffles*
Edit: I forgot, Yay Vector!

And now the thing I was going to drive-by post I hope it makes sense.

@ Bright: LOVE this conclusion. Hunter gloating to the last, Vierce wondering what to do with the codex...eee I really liked the whole story. The epilogue was lovely. I also really liked Vierce's dream, with dream-Elara giving him permission to love another. Because wouldn't otherwise. He might move on, but he'd never really love another person.

The followup with canon!Vierce was so sweet.

@ Kabeone: Showing the plan unfolding as a series of receipts was a brilliant idea. I have to admit I giggled at Jaesa's requisitions. It helps to read the note first.

Godera's requisitions are scary.


I almost cut Shen's reaction to getting his lekku stomped. I liked it, but I was concerned I was keeping it because I liked it and not because it was in character. Glad everyone agreed with my decision .

Prompt and Title: Catching Up (part one)

Character: Shen/Rixik, Kaliyo, Keeper

Spoiler for a possible outcome of Agent Hutta and parts of Chapter 2. Mention of a general quest on Tattooine and implied knowledge of one on Hutta, but neither is really spoiler-y.

This universe has taken over my brain.

@kabeone Love the storytelling format here. So much ego and so many plans that can be brought up by a requisition list.

@Striges eeexcellent, stories taking over brains! I love the image of Rixik settling on Keeper's desk. I love that the exasperation Keeper tends to show even cooperative agents is so thoroughly brought out by a guy like Rixik.

I'm glad people liked Cross Faction! That was a ton of fun to figure out. And now I can go back to Vierce's prime universe, wherein anybody who tries to harm Elara gets beaten up before they get to her.

Characters: Shen/Rixik, Keeper

Prompt and Title: Catching Up, Part Two

Perfect prompt, Bright. I’m still calling this Catching Up, since the last section was part one, but it fits Hide and Seek as though you read my mind.

Spoilers for Agent Chapters One and Two.
