Prompt day!

Week of 5/24/2013
The Droids You're Looking For - One of the hallmarks of the Star Wars universe is the presence of droids: astromech, protocol, combat, and more. Write about the droids that support (our hinder) your characters.

And, as ever,

Featured NotLP: Culture Shock. The galaxy is a big place, and it's home to a wide variety of different cultures and species. It's not easy working with someone who may look similar to you, but comes from a radically different culture - not to mention being friends or even spouses with them.

Awright, this piece of crap forum software just lost Part 4 of "Sith Happens", so I think I'm done posting for a while.

Consider this a placeholder if I cool down and decide to try to rewrite it.

Week of 5/31/2013
Anniversaries: Some dates are remembered and celebrated; others are remembered and reviled. From the fresh anniversary of something that happened just a year ago to the enduring remembrance of holidays for cultures and nations, people often mark the date and do something to observe the occasion. What anniversaries do your AU characters observe that your canon characters never think to care about, or vice versa? Write about an anniversary or significant holiday in your character's life.

Allies - When something huge is going down, or just when you need a hand, who can you call that you know is going to have your back? Whether it's someone completely unlikely or exactly what you'd expect, who can you ultimately always rely on?

Week of 6/7/2013
Defenses: Sometimes our characters defend what's theirs. Sometimes they defend the things they care about. Sometimes they're asked to defend things they really don't like. Their choices on what to defend may change in their alternate timelines. Whether in combat or conversation, write about your character's efforts to defend something or someone.

Evening everybody,

Another one with Aric and my SW, hope people don't mind the pairing.
Featured NotLP:Confessions. Well it was a food prompt that kinda morphed itself into a confessions prompt.

A thought occurred to me while I was at my daughter's T-Ball game, I didn't include when this takes place , might be helpful. It happens within a couple days of my World's Colliding Prompt.

There are spoilers for the Pub quests on Coruscant; Boom and Gree: Hydrosupply leak as well as pub Taris, Pirate Medicine. I think those are the only spoilers.

wow, Kitar, you bring out just how creepy those Taris options are.

Now,
Week of 6/14/2013
Mea Culpa - Our characters have probably done a lot of wrong or perceived wrong, one way or another. Sometimes they think an apology is necessary. Sometimes they really don't. Sometimes they may want to apologize even when they didn't do anything. Sometimes the wronged party accepts it; sometimes they reject it; sometimes they're not there to hear it. Did your character make, hear, or miss an apology in the alternate timeline that never came up in their canon unvierse?

Hidden Talents - All of our characters are good fighters, but people are good at more than one thing. What else are they good at - and how do their friends and family react to learning about this hidden skill?
