Plus, Sith are crazy. How does he not see the writing on the wall when the Warrior is sent out to kill Baras' spies? Quinn, I thought you were smart. >.<

I wish he would get it right already. I mean... come on. Just... come on dude.


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!!

@ Irrissa: Oo, a variety of BH AU goodness. "Damage his honor"--I like the mental image of Torian's honor being a tangible thing. Like sculpture, or in his case more like an antique blaster. (Don't touch that! I just got finished oiling it and the fingerprints will show.)

@ Fino: I do like the idea of Quinn being so upfront about swapping sides. No malice at all, just eminently practical.

Struggling to get my brain to do anything interesting of late. Here, a post-Lodestone piece that could fit under any of As Time Goes By, I Love This Bar, or Stomping Grounds. 250 words, no game spoilers.

Week of 1/11/13

All right, the Night of the Living Prompt remains active (previous prompts here) for those of us who are late with our ideas!

Cross-pollinating from the SFC Thread we have Health - Jet-setting around the galaxy means exposing yourself to a ton of different viruses, bacteria, and parasites. Let's go, biology nerds! Have your characters encountered any exciting health twists in this AU that their prime universe counterparts never had to deal with? Or were they spared something their opposite number had to live through?

For something new, try Behind the Scenes - Things aren't always as they seem, some events never look obvious, and wherever there's a curtain there may well be a man behind it. Write about what's really going on behind the scenes of your character's story.

@Ves I kind of like that Saryn.. in an I-feel-sorry-for-her-but-she's-kind-of-a-****** way.

@Striges I like the contrast between Rixik and Kirya's sides of the story. Both trying to make the other happy while keeping them safe. I love them together but they're both so different. I'd really like to see if Rixik can take Darmas down or at least mess him up

@fino oh you silly quinn's

Bright - "You know," he informed her, "I'm starting to suspect we're too old for this crowd."
Ah yes, that fun moment when you realize that you've just walked into a bar that's about a decade too young for you. Followed by shaking your head at the little ones' antics, fending off advances from men entirely too young for you, and deciding that the coffee shop across the street would probably be much more fun. Oh wait, maybe this is just me? lol

Eversteam - These two AUs are so different, I think mostly in Leer's character development. In the first, she seems to be heading towards becoming harder and more ruthless, while the second, well d'awwww It's interesting to tie this into your normal universe, where she's a combination of the two. Such an interesting character.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?

EverSteam, I very much like your 'possible' Haran series. In the darker alternate line, the mantra 'This is for the best' is heartbreaking.


Zombie prompt, As Time Goes By, for Lodestone. Or possibly a branch of Lodestone, I don't want to formalize its timeline too far into the future. Anyway, all sources I've seen indicate that a Chiss maximum life expectancy is about 80 years while a human's is closer to 140. 1000 words, no spoilers.

*cough* Um. Anyway, I really liked this piece, and not just for the thought of impending death and sads I swear! I always find it very interesting to get a look at a pair of characters in their later years. When the adventuring is (mostly) over, and they're starting to slow down, and maybe even be a little surprised and disappointed that they're not the same fresh young heroes that they once were. It was neat to see how Wynston and Ruth are dealing with the issues that inevitably arise from the passage of time.



...and if you write up anyone's death I want to read it.
