The Obligatory Last 3 IC Posts...

He gestured to one of the other open chairs in the galley. Between him, Silver, and Lits, the room was starting to fill up. He hoped Rik didn't get hungry for a snack. But this was serious. He'd just been joking with Litan about Venix. He thought she was gone for good... But judging by Litan's reaction, appearances had been deceiving.
"So..." Cameo said. "Tell me about Venix."
(ooc : Sorry this is a short one, but not much to go off of. I'm having a very dull weekend.)

Ic: Silver looked at the former spy as the human so casually joked about his death....It took the noghri a few minutes to remember that Litan never trusted anyone hardly, and they had never really had much contact with each other. "I will listen. I do not know how I may be of any use, but I will listen." Silverwuulf all but bit out the words. "Funny how I have problems with certain things now, but I have to protect myself from the force." The noghri thought to himself. He had never been an exceptionaly powerful jedi, and was no match, if he was honest with himself, for Cameo or Cecil. But now however, Litan Adats was thinking just a little too loud. In fact, Everyone was, and Silver was thankful to be near Cameo, for the simple and quiet mind that was the man.
""Why are we going to Nar Shadda?" Demitria asked as she struggled to work on the finicky hyperdrive, cursing Melissa for stealing their mechanic and navigator, as Veruka tried to help.
"Because he was there. I can feel it." The sith snapped as the other woman's voice broke her concetration as she attempted to trace an electrical line through the cooling system components. "Now shut up and focus on the task at hand so we don't blow ourselves up. Frell the idiot that decided to rewire this thing with only one color wires."
"That would be how they are made." Demitria muttered under her breath.....
And let the IC continue...High Moff Betts wrote:Ooc: I was hit by a priest would you believe.
Would have been handy if he’d killed me you know, could have performed the last rights on the spot… maybe not that handy since I’m not a catholic, but hey, I’m flexible, I can convert.
Anyway, as I’ve forgotten what I was going to do, so I guess I’ll just pull something out of my hat…
“Early last year I tracked her down… aboard the wreck of the Ardra would you believe, life’s full of these little coincidences, anyway, she was in mothball in then upper atmosphere of some Gas Giant. Verlin had already gone after her without me, I was going spare I… well lets not mince words I stole an X-wing and blasted my way in. Took down a half squadron of ties and crashed the ship into the barracks where she had her troops stationed.”
“Big boom?” Asked Cameo.
“Big boom.” Litan confirmed. “Eventually I got to Verlin, she’d already been beaten half to death by her, I carried her half the way to the shuttlebay where she’d docked her own ship, on the way out I disabled the Ardra’s engines, sent it sliding into the Gas giant, thought if that didn’t kill Venix nothing would but…”
“She was waiting just in front of the docking bay. I held her off while Verlin ran for a ship, we scuffled, I stabbed her, I almost died… by then me Venix and V were the only ones left aboard the Ardra, Verlin was in a Ysalamiri shielded shuttle, when her body died I was the only host she could find.”
“So… you’re Venix now?”
Litan glared at the Noghri. “Yes and this all a clever ruse to destroy Cam.” The level of implicit sarcasm was so thick it was practically solid. “Verlin saved me, she dragged into the ship so that Venix couldn’t use the force to rip my mind apart… she knew she couldn’t go in and save me ‘cos despite popular belief my heads not big enough for three.”
“Could have fooled me.” Murmured the Noghri, Cam elbowed him and Litan ignored him.
“Without the force it was simply a battle of wills.” The spy continued.
“Wait,” Silverwuulf interjected again. “Venix was a blond was she not?”
“Then that will explain how you won.”
“I killed her… no I didn’t just kill her I erased her, completely, she’s gone. I mean we’ve all killed before, I’m a trained assassin, murders what I’m trained for… this was different though. I felt her slip away into oblivion.”
“And this is bad because?”
“Because a part of me went with her!” Litan suddenly burst out, before he realised he was on his feet, “Her last gift… I-I c-c-can’t seem to feel anything, I… I kiss my wife, nothing, I hold my children. Nothing. She took something with her, something I cannot get back. I couldn’t tell V about this… how would she feel if I told her I didn’t love her anymore? I felt what it’s like to die, and part of me did die… I think her idea was to make my life not worth living. One final victory or something get me to kill myself, or waste my life or something, maybe drag Verlin down with me I don’t know. All I know is I can’t let her win. Cos if I do… I’ll die.”
