#4-How many fic ideas are you nurturing right now? Care to share one of them?
Answered this one for Kabe. However, if we should move out of SWTOR fic and into other territories, my son gave me an idea for a Guardians of the Galaxy fic: a loyal Sakaaran soldier survived Ronan’s assault on Xandar and watched Ronan die. He has no purpose now. He decides killing Gamora for her betrayal will somehow redeem the fact that he didn’t perish with the rest of Ronan’s forces.
In short, way too many ideas.
#16-If you only could write one pairing for the rest of your life, which pairing would it be?
Unlike a lot of other writers, I don’t have a lot of romantic pairs in my stories. Cleaner and Kaliyo, while loads of fun to write, by its very nature can’t be permanent. Varrel and Jaesa’s relationship is caring if distant, and Kruvaûsh’s demands will strain it, so I can imagine it falling apart. Vashutarl and Ian aren’t even off the ground yet, so I suppose I could do without them as a couple. While I like Sha’ra’zaed/Vector and Kirya/Corso, I haven’t explored their relationships much so I don’t think I’d miss them. Rixik/Mako has no chance of being long-term, and like the previously mentioned couples, I haven’t explored them. Sal and the Old Man are background characters. I can’t imagine writing only their relationship and no other, seeing as I haven’t done a lot to date with them. Jurial hasn’t found a match yet and neither has Jealousy.
That pretty much leaves the AU pair of Rixik-Kirya. You know, I’m okay with that. They’re a bit of an odd couple, but they love each other dearly and aren’t afraid of showing it. Their continued marriage underpins the whole of Uncharted Territory. That AU is their story together. If I have to pick only one couple, I’m glad it’s the one with a heathy, loving, relationship.
