Set all the way back before Forged Alliances, so technically pre-romance.
Theron swirled the Corellian brandy in his glass and let the amber liquid distort the holo in front of him. He wasn’t one to drink on the job, unless the job itself called for it, but his work was technically over. Korriban had been successfully invaded, Tython retaken, they were heroes all around with the medals to prove it. Problem was, it wasn’t over. Not really. There were a mountain of questions that Theron was determined to get to the bottom of.
First, though, first he had to make sure his mother was safe. Why he felt so damned compelled to do so, he couldn’t say and wasn’t in any mood to examine, and so he’d decided a drink was in order to ensure he didn’t think about it. While it might have been easier to look at Satele through the filter of a strong drink and an accompanying buzz, it did hamper his ability to keep a solid eye on his surroundings.
several months ago: “i’m not gonna buy any more pops until well after christmas,” i lied to myself.
“…okay, i won’t buy any except for the scarecrow impopster one that i’ve been wanting for months. once he’s released, i’ll behave,” i amended, somewhat more sincerely.
this past thursday: “alright,” i sighed to myself. “so you found that other new batgirl pop on sale somewhere. you’d have gotten it eventually! it’s okay. you’re good. you’re still good. just don’t buy any others aside from the scarecrow one.”
As someone who is playing Pokemon Sun, I sure do seem play a lot at night.
Also, aaaaay, check out my Mimikyu!! Her name’s Pikaboo and I love her lots and for a 5% chance, I ended up finding her on my fourth encounter. Found a Feebas on my very first fishing attempt when I got the Fishing Rod, which says a lot because 1% chance encounter, lol.
I seem to have this sort of luck, especially back in the day when you had to search fucking EVERYWHERE for Feebas back in Gen III’s Emerald, where out of ALL the tiles, only six of them would have Feebas and you had until the phrase in Dewford changed (got lucky in finding one under twenty tries). Don’t even get me started on Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, it was HELL (one tile out of many that changes every 24 hours).
I say this, and yet it took me four days to chain Abalone the shiny Wishiwashi. Who I cannot seem to fit on my team EVEN THOUGH I WANT TO.
Because I can’t replace Pikaboo, she’s my precious child!! I literally encountered her as I was saying, “Mimikyu!!”
It’s like she literally heard me and I feel so strongly about my precious girl.
I can understand why you worry that you’re like them or may end up like them. But you care about people and you love them, you worry about them, you think about them.. you try to make people feel better. I don’t know about you, but that doesn’t sound like your parents to me. You are nothing like them.
He knew why he wanted to kiss her. Because she was beautiful. And before that, because she was kind. And before that, because she was smart and funny. Because she was exactly the right kind of smart and funny. Because he could imagine taking a long trip with her without ever getting bored. Because whenever he saw something new and interesting, or new and ridiculous, he always wondered what she’d have to say about it–how many stars she’d give it and why.
