Mwaahhahahahahahahahahaha! And it is done!
I apologise for any nightmares or emotional scarring that sudden change in Ari's demeanour may give you, Bol, but she wanted to make him pay in a way that would have made her daddy proud! XD (and she WAS raised by an Inquisitor so understandably can be incredibly vindictive when she wants to be pahaaha)

Ari completely took over that post (*forces her to sit down and breathe* Caaaalmmmm, caaalmmm, he's very very dead now O.O), so...confused doggos will be in the next one or two instead haha

Oh no, that was fantastic AND fitting. Very symbolic for Bracknell, who's consumed by his own lust for power(eh? eh? Sorry, the English teacher in me came out for a second xD)

Yerbol won't have a problem with what she just did, as I'll point out in the next post. The others might, but who cares what they say xD

I can't WAIT to have those Tuk'ata around as guard dogs for the two of them. I think hilarity is going to ensue on several occasions!

Will post later today!

Oh good, good, I worried for his sanity a bit because he's never really seen that side of her before but Ari was like "HE'S GONNA CHOKE ON HIS OWN BLOOD AND YOU SHALL NOT SAY OTHERWISE!" XD

It's gonna be brilliant (they're gonna have a time and a half having to explain them to Bol's parents if they ever meet up with them, OR training them to 'stay' on the ship hahaha)

Sweet! I look forward to it, as always!

Done! Tried to give Ari some time to process Roan/Bracknell before Saresh came. I can put her in next post :)

Awesome, I think she's gonna need it just a little haha (and possibly another hug XD)

Hahaha. "Whaaaaat? Leave me alone I want sleep!" Bless him, now you gotta deal with having smelly guard dogs following you around Bol XD

Working on post now!

I can see why! Man alive that's powerful. As someone who lost his father, I can somewhat empathize with Aria's plight.

Aaaand I love the Tuk'ata. They need to be around for a long time xD

Happy you made them so sentient! It gives us a fresh perspective from time to time to look through.

I've not lost a parent yet (thankfully!), but I've lost grandparents that I was super close to and I imagine it's not far off in terms of how it makes you feel afterwards :/ so I feel for her right now in the best way I can (probably why I cried XD)

Oh they definitely will be XD I'm too attached to them to get rid of them haha

They're great fun0. Makes for an interesting challenge which I enjoy :P I always liked how they looked in the original KOTOR games so I kind of nerded out looking into the lore and stuff that's written out for them and ended up with these two goofs. They're lovable in their own drool-y, stinky way XD

I get it for sure. My condolences on the grandparents.

Hey, I feel like the beneficiary of some fantastic lore research, so lore away! xD

Might try to post something later today, but I need to grade work, so maybe tomorrow. Will let you know :)

Likewise (: it's never good to lose a family member you're close to or look up to, but hey we've got to soldier on ;)

Hahaha, I actually wish there was more, honestly, it's such an interesting concept and I'm sad it wasn't expanded more :P

No worries, never a rush on my end, whenever you have the time! :3

PAHAHAHA I cracked up at the "potato shaped dog", also the fact that he actually named it Potato *snickers* XD

Ooohhh that is sounding so epic so far (also props to Bol and Matt for handing it right to Saresh XD)

Sweet, I shall try and get something up today, otherwise it might be tomorrow depending on how much I can get done :P

I was thinking of Corgis when I wrote that because I love Corgis. To pieces, really xD

Yay! Yeah, no worries on posts, seeing as I feel like the next handful of posts from both of us are going to be much longer than normal

Phew, got it done! XD

Don't think I forgot anything else super important....? O.O Feel free to butt in if I have, otherwise...onwards, to greater things! XD Tried to kind of set up the scene for the possibility of some of them heading back into known space at some point if they want to, but feel free to go wherever you like with that :P

I figured they would want to ensure Soto got proper punishment for her involvement in the whole shabang, whatever that eventual punishment ends up being XD

PERFECT resolution! Thanks for cleaning up some of the messes I left behind xD

It's late here, but I couldn't help typing out my thoughts so that when you read this(time zones work in our favor in this case), you'll have some time to respond.

Here we go!

-I'd like to have Neta/Elara/The Council assemble the survivors for a "debrief" of sorts, explaining the updated situation before exhorting all those who joined their movement to:
A. Go to the sanctuary cities and help in the restoration effort (or stay on Zinuthra, seeing as it's already technically a sanctuary)
B. Join Alliance forces in order to help facilitate change from within (I'd assume Saresh would authorize this, seeing as most, if not ALL of those who joined the resistance were former Republic/Imperial employees in some capacity)
C. Receive a monetary sum written up in the treaty as way of helping them begin a new life before sending them on transports to the Core worlds

The fate of our more intimately known characters could go as followed(I'll list the characters I introduced, then you can talk about yours):
Master Voldon/Kira- After making sure Kira was healed up enough, he would want to spearhead some kind of "Council of Elders", consisting of those Masters left alive. I know Jungze would agree to this(more on that later). Voldon would fly to one of the Core worlds to help start one of the sanctuary cities along with Kira

Master Carnagie-After agreeing to form a "Council of Elders" (more on that in a minute), Carnagie would decide to stay behind on Zinuthra to help shore up the base and help with establishing it as a refuge for Force sensitives. Janika and Manso would stay behind at Matt's request, seeing as the duo would be of great help to him.

Darth Jungze- Dropping the title of "Darth"(as she'll explain), Malu Jungze will commit herself to first attempting to find any remaining Masters/Lords/Darths that may have survived the purging. Once her journey is somewhat concluded, she'll join one of the sanctuary cities.

Elara and Havoc Squad- Saresh contracts Havoc Squad as "military consultants" to help quell potential threats towards the extremely fragile government. They'll be stationed on Zinuthra for a while before moving around to wherever they're needed.

Neta- Our dearest pilot will be heading to Alderaan, where she says she'll be "for Force knows how long". She'll say an emotional farewell to her "kiddos" before going to see her children, who have been taken care of by a steward of House Organa.

Council of Elders(or whatever we want to call it)-I'm thinking this can be a hybrid of the Dark Council and the Jedi Council, wherein all members have an equal say, but when decisions are contested, one Master is called upon to be the tiebreaker. That responsibility can pass from Master to Master after a certain period of time. It's in the loose stage of planning and it's almost 10pm here, so forgive me for not saying much about this xD

That just leaves our dynamic duo. I believe, my friend, that they have EARNED some time off. It'll be SO nice to write a series of posts that see them interacting outside of war xD.

A sequence of events I have in my head are as follows:
-Yerbol tells Aria that he desperately wants to check on his parents, so after saying their goodbyes, they had out to Taris...but NOT before he insists that Aria and he create some kind of memorial for Roan. Whether that be etching something on a stone and leaving it in the wilderness or creating a holo recording or SOMETHING, Yerbol is going to insist on this. If it doesn't happen, then it doesn't, but just know he's going to want to help Aria bring about some kind of "closure". If that closure means going to another world before Taris, then let's do it!

-They arrive on Taris and meet the parents, who are thrilled to see Yerbol alive AND in the company of a young lady(even the Tuk'ata are somewhat welcomed). After catching up and spending time with his long lost parents, Yerbol bring Aria to a favorite spot of his as a child, where he has a dinner set up for them by candlelight(you know where this is going, right? xD) that he cooked himself. They eat, converse and...well, because Yerbol is Yerbol, he's going to let slip that he has feelings for her.

-From there...well, I don't want to go to far because I want to know your thoughts on the matter.

Good morning to you!

Oooohhhh these are some cracking ideas here my friend, the debrief sounds like a perfect way to move them onwards towards starting to rebuild relations with everyone in known space. Also yay, Kira's okay!! :D (I was worried for a bit that she wouldn't be, boy am I glad she made it! XD) I also hope that won't be the last we see of our beloved spec ops pilot, I've grown quite attached to her XD I request she makes an eventual reappearance at some point :P

I really like the Council of Elders (heck even the name just sounds kick butt hsha) idea as well, We can definitely expand on that and flesh it out as we go along ouo Ailel for sure would back up the idea and I'm sure after all they've been through even Cheriss would be down for it ;)

As for my portion of our cast I shall supplement the above with where I could see them going from here:

Ailel- would be 100% down for Voldon's Council of Elders idea and would back him up totally as well, Then she would probably head out to one of the other destinations in the Core or Outer Rim worlds to spearhead another sanctuary city in conjunction with Voldon/Kira's efforts (I imagine they'd remain in touch via letters/holocalls to inform each other of their progress?)

Cheriss- would also make a full recovery and in light of their efforts together would come around and agree to the Council idea, she'd probably have to stay on Zinuthra a while to help Matt out while she recovers enough strength to travel off world again (let's face it she took one hell of a beating haha) before moving off to help with the sanctuaries. Not sure if she'd like the idea of dropping her Darth title (and some small part of her might actually like being 'the last Darth in the galaxy ever'! XD)

Vano- as one of the older youngsters (she was probably in preparation for taking her Darth trials when everything turned to doo doo), she wouldnt be old enough to join the Council of Elders, but would support the idea and instead express an interest in keeping in with their older tradition of some form of initiation trials and honouring that somehow. I was thinking she would journey to other places where the Jedi and Sith had enclaves or bases (so places like Dromund Kaas, Dantooine, Coruscant, to name the few I can remember this early in the morning :P) to try and salvage any holocrons or teaching archives that might have been there which Bracknell and Soto overlooked, with the 'end' goal of spearheading a project to combine parts of the old Jedi and Sith customs (minus the backstabbing and bloodshed of comrades etcetra XD) to devise a new set of trials or tests for their learners to take once they are ready (was thinking 'Neophyte' or something of that kind would be a great new title for them to use for them in place of Padawan and Acolyte-and it's KIND OF a blend between the two ;). She would then eventually return to Zinuthra to collate her findings with Matt, Janika and Manso and work with them to actually write up an official record of the new trials and set up an academy or training facility either on Zinuthra or that other moon they saw nearby but decided against settling on (name suggestion: Khepri?). I shall put forward the suggestion for Vano, Janika and Manso to become the first set of tutors/instructors at the new academy once they have the proper training and experience themselves, with some guest appearances from Ari and Yerbol when they're able and not doing other things.
Then some more tearful goodbyes (she and Ari kind of have a sisterly thing going on, she makes them promise to write or check up with her every now and again (also some more prodding because that's what older sisters do regarding the duo's future together-"I expect to be invited to the wedding when it happens, Ari!" XD which Ari will of course profusely deny but secretly contemplate as they make their way to Taris)

Chwuq and Taral- shall of course accompany our dynamic duo as their faithful watchdogs haha, Taral is understandably a bit battered and bruised after being flung about by Bracknell (hence the limp, which will perhaps persist for a little while in some capacity after they tend to the underlying damage but will eventually make a full recovery), training them to accept a personal hygiene routine is of course also going to happen (especially before taking them to meet Bol's parents as they cant have them looking all blood-soaked, drooly and smelly can they? They'll be scary enough to the poor 'rents as it is, dont want to make it worse! XD). As the last of their species (there's very little to suggest there were notable populations on any other world than Korroban) they would have nowhere else to go as an alternative and of course since Roan's last instruction to them before he died was to protect Ari and Bol they would be adamant at doing that. Maybe even some adorably clumsy baby Tuk'ata could make their appearance at some point in the future, because it would be super sad if they were the last ones EVER even though they are kind of immortal/long lived due to their Force sensitivity mutation. Said puppies could grow up to be less like the savage tomb Tuk'ata of old and more like their parents in temperament with regards to their response to people (especially Force users), enabling the possibility of them then getting sent back to Khepri or Zinuthra at a later date to establish a population there and they could be reinstated as guardians of the temple/knowledge archive/Roan's resting place, perhaps? (Chwuq and Taral themselves wouldn't go as they would refuse to leave Aria and Yerbol's sides XD)

Soto- our dearest Soto (who kind of became a shared character between us? But I figured we should give everyone some closure on what happens to her as well o.o) could be put on trial as a war criminal, perhaps after the 'briefing' session but before everyone splits off to go do their own things, and the remaining Council members would have to debate what would be done with her. Vano would be keen on rolling her head off her shoulders still, as would probably Cheriss however Ailel will vehemently protest to such violence and insist that showing her mercy of some description is their better course of action ('if we kill her now we're no better than they were! Enough blood has been shed on their account, let's not add to it!' Blah blah blah) perhaps they could swear her into some kind of community service/servitude type thing where she has to help them work with Saresh to reestablish Force users in the galaxy again? XD alternatively they could lock her up in some kind of maximum security prison type deal (depends how she would respond to their decision to leave her alive, I assume there would be more votes for the merciful option than against it, I think even Ari would vote for giving her the opportunity to change her ways since she's changed a lot since meeting Yerbol and would kind of understand that Soto was manipulated and heavily influenced by Bracknell just like many of the others)

Roan- fear not, he shall not die forever (I like him FAAAARR too much for that!) He shall definitely make some honorary appearances later on, either as a Force ghost/apparition of some kind or just as a disembodied voice offerring his wisdom/guidance. Perhaps he can eventually lead our duo on to seeking out Renso after Renso eventually reestablishes contact with them and urges them to come and train with him? We can pin that up on the 'stuff that happens later' board for consideration though because our poor children have DEFINITELY earned a vacation after all this!

Not regarding a particular character but also something important I thought of on the way in to work: A rewrite/reworking of both old Jedi and Sith codes to reflect their newfound allies/strength working together. Something similar to the Grey Jedi Code that talks about combining both as long as they are in moderation (ie. "There is no light without darkness, knowledgw is useless without the strength to act on it, there is no passion without serenity to guide it, I will maintain balance for balance is the key to true peace. The Force is all things and I am the Force") its not exactly the same as the canon grey code but something along those lines to reflect their new knowledge after working in harmony with one another for the better part of a year/18 months XD This can be further discussed and hashed out proper between us but just a general idea, it seems silly for the former Jedi to continue to insist on forbidding attachments and giving in to one's emotions, but equally silly for the former Sith to not acknowledge that allowing emotions to overtake you without proper moderation is ALSO bad. I think they'd all be able to acknowledge that the issues with both former philosophies was that they refused to acknowledge that both things can be achieved if those in question learn to allow their passion/emotions to guide their actions IN MODERATION and ensuring they are taught the wisdom to know when they should shirk their emotional response in favour of one that is more logical and better for everyone involved. Would love to hear your thoughts on this one, as well! :D

I hadn't thought about them leaving a memorial for Roan until you mentioned it, but yes. SO MUCH yes for this. It will give poor Ari the closure she needs to accept that she's more than capable of life without her dearest daddy. I also plan to work it in the next post or so to explain out Roan and her mother's relationship dynamic a bit (via some observations/accounts from Cheriss who was present when they first met and whom Roan confided certain things about their relationship to-I like to think they were the equivalent of 'friends' as much as the Dark Council/Sith philosophy allowed them to be lol) to give Ari some closure on that as well since that's also a big grey area/blank space that she is DESPERATE for closure on. I confess I hashed it all out a couple months ago and have been keeping it to myself to wait for the right moment to fit it in. This seems as good a time as any and I'm kind of excited to finally reveal that big plot gap XD

But in regard to the nature of Roan's memorial I have what are (hopefully) some very awesome suggestions:
-Vano will approach Aria before they part ways to express interest in naming the eventually established new academy/training facility in honour of Roan (so 'Noctis' something or other), since he WAS her mentor and she did have a pretty close bond with him (not quite as close as Ari. This could lead in nicely perhaps to Ari and Bol going with Vano to this moon to scout it out and leave Roan's momentum (a little stone carving/statuette of some kind?) in the place of the future training center's site?
-as a side-thought, and dependant on if everyone else would be down with it too, since their newly established Order of Force users doesn't have a name they could also name it Noctis something in his honour...Though I kind of like the above suggestion better than this one ^^ Thoughts?

-This sounds adorable. I am all for this XD let's do it haha we could just put them in that candlelit scenario and kind of see how it evolves from there? They seem to be quite good at deciding what they want to do for themselves XD I'm also excited to allow them to just have the time to relax without constant threat of battle and espionage hanging over their heads and give them a chance to let their relationship/feelings develop properly. I vote in favour of Renso leaving them be for a while and they can always seek him out again later once they're ready to (ie the vacation time has served it's purpose and they become bored of not having something important to do lol)

Gosh, that was a lot more thoughts than I thought I'd have this early in the morning! Surprise? XD I don't think I overlooked anyone super important in our cast, let me know if there happens to be somebody I've left out that needs to be included and I shall add them when I get off in the afternoon hahaha

I also found an old sketch I did a few months back of one of the scenes near the beginning of the RP (the massacre on Tython that kicked it all off) so I'll be cleaning that up and adding a background. And to honor the end of Act/Season 1 I also started another one last night of the VERY beginning when they found the star map in Naga Sadow's tomb (man it was nostalgic to re-read that, they've grown so much as characters and as a pair in their view of each other *wipes away tear* XD) so I have plans to finish those up over the weekend as 'fake screenshots' of sorts and add a little "Gallery" to the characters tab Hehe ;) (don't laugh at my awkward grasp, I mean stylization of human anatomy, people are hard to draw and I only started properly trying like 5 months ago haha)
