I'm just gonna splorch this out there. It's part of an early chapter for an actual honest-to-Cthulhu story I'm starting about Swaindrix and crew.

If there's a prompt, it would be Betrayal. If that's a prompt. Or something about Revelation.
Belsavis BH class quest spoilers. Set a couple years after Chapter 3 ends.

@All, Thanks for the kind words on the latest stories. You never know if something's going to gel as well for someone reading as it does in your head, so it's good to get that feedback. Glad you guys are enjoying the Mel kick I've been on lately!

@frauzet, Very enjoyable piece! I wondered what Mako was doing, and then it all made perfect sense. Love the imagery of everybody gathered around the table bartering for breakfast, too.

@Yoshi, A perfect gift for Akaavi. So nice of Dankin to find something so meaningful for her. And competing to not pay the bar tab sounds like a worthy competition to me!

@alaurin, Glad to see each of the girls taking those first steps toward healing and recognizing that certain methods are better than others. It's lucky for both that they have supportive crews. Especially Mallay. Less forgiving people would probably be keen to cash in on a commander's mistakes.

@Bright, Oh my lord, Quinn would have a heroic speech prepared. This whole thing was great. I love the layered meaning behind's Quinn's conversation with Ryessa, the way everything he's saying to her is marked by his past with Ruth. And this line is fantastic.

The perfect embodiment of Quinn's air of noble tragedy

@DSM, Poor, poor Drok! That was hilarious from start to finish. I may have sprayed drinks at my computer screen, but I'm alone at work on a holiday, so it's all good!

@Adwynyth, Oooh, great start to a bigger thing. That poor, innocent couch Can't wait to read more!

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!!

Ahahaha! As a fire mage who married a rogue I approve this story wholeheartedly. (Not a subtlety rogue, though. I made it clear early on that if he specced subtlety we didn't have a future together. Subtlety rogues are jerks!) I love that everyone keeps it a guilty secret.
