The story will go on, there's a post in the final stages, but it won't be done till the end of this weekend... sorry for the long-assed wait.
waits for next post
no problem, at least we now know where to stand on it and keep upping it for less time consuming search
Up Up hurray
Joins Ktulu666 in waiting
*desides, to make things interesting and throws a water balloon at Ktulu666
I didn't mean to scare everyone away!
There's no body here!!!!! and no new posts
I'm rivited, can't wait for more so get on and UP!!!
Okay, I'm going to pull out the worst threat I know.
Maybe we should offer to help Derisa write the story!
still no post!??
Jane's threat worked, although not because *she* made it: as I would love to collaborate with her on just about anything...
Actually this post has been mostly written for over a month now, it's just been a question of honing since then. Sorry to have kept you all waiting.
BTW: if you get a smile or a chuckle from Janson's actions or words here, blame Rani Veko, as she wrote him for me (I don't *want* to get that into Janson's head, thanks). So a big hand for Rani! (clap clap clap... "Now sing that song about Mace Windu!" "Janson!" "What?")
Wedge tapped at the annunciator panel to Lieutenant Wes Janson?s quarters and was rewarded almost immediately by the door sliding open to reveal his broad-shouldered figure. His black brows went up at the sight of his squad?s commander, wearing such an intent expression.
?Spare me a few minutes, Wes?? Wedge asked.
"Yub yub, Commander," Janson grinned, stepping to one side to let him
I will die happy if I never hear another 'Yub yub, Commander', Wedge sighed and entered as Janson peered down both lengths of the corridor before pulling his head back inside and closing the door.
"I take it this isn't simply a social call?" Janson asked.
"No, not really," Wedge replied as they moved back into the Lieutenant's quarters. The small room was sparsely furnished, with not much beyond the New Republic military standards. Janson kept his space relatively
neat. Getting down to the matter in hand, Wedge began, "I understand you and Myn Donos have become fairly good friends."
Janson nodded slowly. "Well, we're not ready to start picking out rings or anything," his boyish grin returned, "But he's good for conversation over lum, running sims with, playing pin the tail on the bantha, that
sort of thing." He shrugged and rested back on his extended arms as he sat on the edge of his bunk.
"How well has he been getting along with everyone else?" Wedge asked. Myn
Donos had been trained by Janson and his inseparable friend, Derek 'Hobbie' Klivian, and had graduated to his own command, the ill-fated Talon Squadron. The psychological damage from the loss of that young team, and Myn's subsequent survivor's guilt had almost ended a promising career before it had really begun.
Janson seemed to give this question some thought, before replying with a grin creeping around the corners of his mobile mouth, ?He owes half the squad several rounds of ale for welched bets, but-?
"I'm serious, Wes." Wedge let more steel come through in his voice. Accustomed as he was to Janson's wisecracks, he needed to have this data to make a fair and informed decision regarding Donos' request for leave.
Janson raised an eyebrow at his commanding officer, but his survival trait of knowing when to quit kicked in. He was reminded of Wedge's recent 'object lesson' regarding his sense of humour. He might have all the ingenuity in the world, but the senior officer had all the resources.
"He's not such a bad guy when he's not taking life so seriously all the time," Wes replied, at last.
"He's getting better about that, then?" Wedge inquired. The other pilot frowned slightly as he seemed to consider that.
"He hasn't told me about any of those lapses of reality he used to experience...you know, like when we were still with the Wraiths. Letting loose now and then with his decorum seems to agree with him, and hey, it beats having him shoot at his own squadmates." Wedge didn't call Janson on the comment, because Donos had done exactly that, at the height of his relapse, when Lara had revealed her real identity as the person responsible for the Talon's destruction.
Janson continued, "He even got pretty close to drunk two weeks ago, at Hobbie's birthday
party. It may sound bad, but it shows he's learning how to actually live. I think it's a good sign."
Wedge nodded, recalling the tenor of that particular occasion, even before he felt compelled to depart or risk dampening the party. "That's really good. I appreciate your c
You'd love to collaborate with me? Really? Same here. I like collaborating with people; I always think the stories come off better and deeper with two people working on them.
I'm so glad I found the Wraith Squadron books. I didn't know I was missing three of the four best SW ever written--but I've got them now! I wish deeply that I could write Wraith fanfic, but for some reason, I just don't feel that I can, at least not yet. "I'm not worthy!" Or if I did, it'd be hopeless Mary Sue (me and Phanan... or would it be Kell?) Maybe if I read them again I'd feel more capable, though ...
I was just grinning all over at this post. *applauds wildly at Rani* I loved Jansen's retorts and the way he also knew when to shut up. So, Myn's getting leave, huh? Why do I get the idea he's going to Corellia?
Oh no, he's going to go and find that she's away...
Will Myn and Lara get together,
Will Wes ever grow up (hope not )
and Will we ever find Wedge under all that paperwork
Find out next time same Wraith time,
Same Wraith Channel
(dont know if anyone will get that but... What the hell )
Great job and (as usual) can't wait for more...
Yeah!!! great post!!! Can't wait for more!!
I know I'm going to die laughing a Wes.
This is so great. I was really mad a Allston for leaving me hanging about Myn and Lara, so this is great. I really love the X-wing books.
To quote Stranded in space:
TO THE TOP!!!!!!!!!!!
Yay Derisa!!! (see, I finally made it back here!!) *grin*
Up! Up, I say!
Hmm...I wonder if Wes will attempt to go AWOL and try to stow away with Myn, if/when he leaves?
Nyaaaa...I'm sure he'll take his second-best friend abandoning him with good grace and maturity.
To The Top!!!!
To the top!! again
Yeah, hey... I got into this story late (after rereading the XWing/Wraith series all over again recently)... I LOVE this story... when's the next installment acomin'?
