Re: Star Wars: Through the Never

The next day was the big day. For nearly a month they've been preparing for this heist and now that it was finally time Nova suddenly had butterflies in her stomach. She leaned against the bulkhead and sighed, holding the copied code cylinder to her eyes to inspect it. How did I get picked for this ...

Micaiah allowed herself a smile as she raised her glass and said, "To credits." They clinked their glasses together and as she sipped from her drink she glanced at him out of the corner of her eye. There was something off about him that she just couldn't quite put her finger on. The way his gaze lin...

Re: Star Wars: Through the Never

Nova was quite clearly distracted as she left the infirmary. She almost didn't even notice when one of the ship's crew stopped to get her attention. She'd passed by the man without a second thought and he had to quickly hurry to catch up with her. A tap on her shoulder finally caused her to stop and...

Re: Star Wars: Through the Never

Nova sat alone in the small room. She could feel her heartbeat quicken as her nerves increased. She wasn't afraid of doctors, of course, she'd seen plenty of them before. However, something about this woman unsettled her to a remarkable degree. So much so that she had not wanted to come back and lik...

Re: Star Wars: Through the Never

Nova sighed as another sleezeball walked by and waved at her. She'd spent the last week trying to fend off approaches from random men while trying to focus on her role in the heist. Now that she was on standby she no longer had that stress hanging over her, so the extra attention didn't matter as mu...

Re: Star Wars: Through the Never

Blaine gave her a look of concern. "Could be a concussion," he told her, "I should take you to see the ship's doctor." "Oh no, that's fine, actually," Nova tried to assure him, "I'll be fine." "Nonsense," he said, "You're a guest under my care. Have the doctor look you over, you can go back to your ...

"I beg your pardon?" Lyshani sounded genuinely offended.

The man next to her was quick to notice her presence and even quicker to strike up a...

Re: Star Wars: Through the Never

The three of them walked in silence for some time after getting Tsivoin back to his feet. Nova's ribs were still fairly tender and her arm had a giant bruise on it that was at times visible under her jacket. She tried her best to ignore the pain, but astute viewers would have noticed that her breath...

Nova had her eyes closed trying to sense where Tsivoin was. He was close but it was hard to pinpoint his exact location partly because she could feel Rossi's inner conflict just a few feet behind her. She felt bad having to admit yet another secret to her though in truth Masilda was the one who rope...

Seriously, did someone turn off the heat, she asked herself quietly. With a groan she stood and headed back...

Later that evening Nova found herself laying awake in her bed. She hadn't seen Masilda since her talk with Vague. Her ship was still here so she hadn't left, but she still wondered what it was exactly they had to talk about. What is wrong with me, she asked herself. A few days ago I wanted to strang...

Nova watched him curiously. Was he sick? Surely if he was he would have informed the rest of the crew. She shook her head, it was probably nothing. Vague wouldn't risk running an op like this if an illness had somehow impaired his ability. Instead she turned back around and went off in search of Mas...

Re: Star Wars: Through the Never

It took some time for the pair to make their way back to the camp. The front of the ship had taken the brunt of whatever conflict it had been in. That meant a good portion of the outer hull had been breached and many of the upper and lower decks had been completely vented into space. Nova relied on ...
