Mm, I'm stuffed full of angst.

And it was delicious.
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!!

@ Vesaniae: YES!

Ok, now to clarify: This makes sense. K'hera has a reason for doing what she did. A personal reason, something that makes sense given her established background and experience. Excellent follow-up.

Stories do that. Especially when they evolve past "What if I do this" and into letting the new characters be characters and not flat reflections. Thank you for not dropping K'hera's AU.

Remi AU: Knightless: Loyalty and Betrayal

Ug. Struggled with this for weeks and gave up. :/ I hope it's not too awful.

@Ves Yay. I liked that comparison to the Sarlacc, it does make her choice easier to understand. Also, DS Jaesa getting kicked out of bed was pretty fun too).

See, I was going to comment in my own words, Ves, but Striges just bundled my thoughts all together so I'll just say ^

And Fino, I like the AU. It is more believable that he'd recognize who the winner was going to be (master strategist, hello) and go with that than the actual events. Makes sense to me.

Kabe - "Throughout the exchange Pierce's expression had not changed except for a slight crinkling in the corners of his eyes. He was laughing." That man is such a thorn in Quinn's side, even with as little power as he holds, love it!

I've been deliberating for a good two weeks over whether or not to post this piece, and I suppose I might as well just throw it out there. This is an AU separate from anything else I've posted thus far. The premise is basically, what if the third part of Afterimages did not happen? And then things happen...

Prompt: Night of the Living Prompt, and I'm stealing Parenthood from the main SFC. I love this zombie prompt, it enables my procrastination! This piece contains no class story spoilers.

I thought it was interesting how you brought out A'tro's ties to Sith culture in her reaction to a Force-blind child. She always struck me as one of the more Sithy (if that comes across right) characters I've seen, more grounded in the culture, tied to her roots.

@ Kabeone: Nice twist. I really liked Quinn being clever here, very well done (also nice alternate use of the ‘companion present’ dialog from the canon version!).

So, not to break up the Sith Warrior vibe around here, but here’s a new entry in Uncharted Territory. Contains spoilers for Smuggler Chapters 2 (ish) and 3 (especially). Takes place some time after My Senator, and it might help to review that entry so this one makes more sense.

Prompt: Alternate Views.

Title: Together

Glad to see activity again!


Fino, I love your story title. Can you get it right this time, Quinn? ...Please? We can and will keep running you through this scenario until you stop failing at it. Now, once more, from the top.

Aiee, kabe. Quinn is so...chillingly...Quinn. And I love the last line.

Ves, I really liked the history and the anger in Saryn's story. The depth of suppressed resentment and sense, conscious or not, of us-against-the world that must have gone into Quinn's rapid acceptance of the realization is as sad as Saryn's decision.

That, among other things, says so very much about how this relationship has changed since the starting point of Uncharted Territory.

Striges - Awww look at him trying to do the right thing in his own Rixik-ish way, hehe. I love this set and how each of them are approaching this. This AU makes me smile
