Author: Noelie Notes: This is for the Self-Realization challenge in the Resource forum. It was a great challenge and both RK_Striker and Ish have kindly allowed me to abuse them. Enjoy! ~~~~~~ "Do we know yet?" Qui-Gon shook his head solemnly at his companions. "I have no idea which one is going to get the next post. Our fate is still up for grabs." Liam Senoe snorted, "well at least you two always exist. If Rk_Striker_JK_5 has his way I might never have a chance to live." Noela patted his arm, "Don't worry about that, you're Ish's pet. You know she conveniently forgets the love scenes Noelie does write, so she has to write some more just to indulge Ish's fixation." "Exactly," Qui-Gon exclaimed exultantly, "On the other hand if Noelie is in charge I find myself getting misty-eyed and unable to eat my morning mush for a month! It isn't exactly what a Jedi Master should find himself feeling more than every so often. It's practically every post. Still I prefer that to Ish." "What is your deal with Ish?" "She has this need to get me into something they refer to as a missionary haircut and for some reason she thinks I believe in the Alderaanian Holy Law of Chastity." Noela rolled her eyes, "Well you do tend to smack me over the head with it on a frequent basis." He looked smug, "It is a good idea for you." "Hypocrite!" Noela laughed. "It isn't my fault j'm. She wrote me with the irresistible desire to protect you." "Which of course you showed by running of with Tahl. Good choice Jinn." He waved his hand dismissively, "That is explained by someone else. Ish is under the delusion Tahl is canon rather than EU." Liam and Noela only shook their heads in response. For a moment there was silence as they continued to wait for their fate of the day to be decided, then both men noticed with concern that Noela looked perplexed. "Why do you always call me J'm?" She finally asked. "Noelie's at fault again. Apparently it is some Quebecois term of endearment. It goes along with all the sentimental thinking that affects the woman frequently." "At least you have something sweet to call her," Liam retorted. "And you get all the love scenes with her." Came the instant challenge. Liam looked smug, "I was rather pleased with the fighting naked thing. Somehow Noelie managed to write that and not violate TOS." Noela nodded, "And I got a good bubble bath out of it." "And I got a ruddy cold shower," muttered Qui-Gon. This time Noela and Liam both patted his back in commiseration. All of a sudden Noela gasped,"We forgot something!" "What?" asked the two men, both feeling some alarm. "Araxie could be in charge today!" They shook their heads sadly. "That would be too good to hope for."
