God. I love them broken.
At this stage in his life, he's mostly forgotten about them. They abandoned him, but through their fear and neglect he became strong and was picked up by a Sith Lord to train to become even stronger. If I ever get inspired enough to make him his own thread, that might be a piece of his history I cover first.

Ald is strange, you never know how he'll react. But, yes, I wouldn't hug him. He might shiv you...

Don't feel to bad for him, he's actually pretty happy with how things turned out. He's weird, lol.

Thank you! I was originally going to do four separate pieces, but writing does what it wants sometimes, lol.

Ald is a very strange boy with very strange habits and thinking patterns. He's a natural born Sith, in some ways.

Thanks for reading!
I'll probably die if you group with me, but I'll go out with both lightsabers drawn stabbing someone in the face. Probably you, but it's cool. Forever Shenanigans!!

@iamthehoyden Love it.

I completely sympathize, Skari!

@Selentar, you make the will of the Jedi Council very hateable. Actually, I guess the Jedi Council does that part pretty well themselves, but you make Xareen'alay's predicament hit home

...and then Taren sounds interestingly earthy ^.^

@Earthmama, Hala's reaction to the news....:'(

@irishfino I love this image of playing with the Force. Being played with by. Whichever.

That was certainly Wynston's original intent. Notes re: Kaliyo's companion quest line under cut.

@ Selentar: Your pieces make me wish someone with responsibility for lore somewhere would come forward and explain the 'no love' policy in a way that real human fans can understand and appreciate. Not agree with, necessarily, but at least see the purpose. As it stands, it makes the Jedi out to be as heartless as the Sith in their own way. Along with creating a lot of bitter mother bears. By the same token, I like Taren using their own policies to Xar's advantage.

@ Earthmama: Oh, Isla, all of them in impossible circumstances. That hurt. "What was freedom when you had nothing". Not freedom at all, not really.

@ Iamthehoyden: Blizz! I notice that Crae doesn't seem aware of him yet. A fatal flaw perhaps. Skari not really wanting to open up, but doing it anyway. Nice pair.

@ irishfino: a Sith in tune with the living force is a frightening prospect. Ald's insight does him credit, as does his accepting that the Force may use him as much as the other way around.

ack!!! Must catch up on reading.

Meanwhile a little bit on Tools of the Trade

Featuring - Minalde (only little baby spoilers for Tython and Nadia)

Oddly enough though Minalde was not one I had intending to do much writing for,she seems to suddenly have a story forming. I can't wait to see where it goes.

I probably let my own view of the jedi council influence my story but I did always believe that both jedi and sith are extremes and, as such, examples to be avoided. Acting out (or not) for the greater good is not always seen as beneficial. I am not entirely sure if I grasp the meaning of "real human fans".
